The Orange Guidance Soapstone is an online play item in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Online play item. Write/view/rate message.
Messages transmit to other worlds, where they are rated. Also, rate messages of others.
In Lordran, the flow of time is distorted, and messages allow Undead to assist (or deceive) one another.


Not obtaining this during the first playthrough may make it impossible to ever obtain it, as of patch 1.03.

General information[]

Using the Orange Guidance Soapstone allows players to leave messages on the ground for other players in other worlds to see. It also allows players to rate other players' messages.

Not all messages are automatically visible to players. Casting Seek Guidance increases the number of messages that can be seen (if any).
