I tried to do all the goody goody things I could. But, in climbing the tower I still got the "he brings death" and because of that I ended by shooting the Dark one with the pistol so I'm guessing I can't just reload that chapter and NOT shoot the dark one with the pistol?
I don't recall getting many flashes of any kind during the game but the regular scripted ones at some points.
For shits and giggles I'll try that tonight and see what happens, otherwise I'm starting run no. 2 with this guide anyhow. Thanks for the tips!!
