    -NPC's you need to know and properly interact with-

    -Big Hat Logan: -IMPORTANT- In order to buy sorceries from Big Hat Logan, your INT must be at least 15! (Thank you to SoulCraver for pointing me onto this.) You first meet Logan in Sen's Fortress, where he is locked in a cage. The key to free him is located in Sen's Fortress, but the Master Key will also open his cage up. Free him and he'll head back to Firelink Shrine. You can start purchasing his sorceries there.
    After you have been sent to Seath's dungeons in the Duke's Archives, you will find him in a large cell on the ground floor of the dungeon. You can find the key to his cell in the Archives. The Master Key will not help this time. Free him and he'll head to a different room in the Archives where he will have his full inventory unlocked for you.
    Once you have bought everything in his store and you have defeated Seath for good, head to the room Seath first mauled you in before being sent to the dungeons. Logan will be there. He's turned Hollow and you have to defeat him to acquire White Dragon Breath.

    -Griggs of Vinheim: Griggs is first found in the low levels of the Undead Burg, locked away in a house. To get him out, you need to buy the Residence Key from the Male Undead Merchant in the upper levels. After freeing him, he'll head to Firelink Shrine and set up shop.
    Once you've freed Big Hat Logan and later spoken to Logan in the Archives, Griggs will sell a modified spell and ring selection. Once you have bought all he has, he'll turn Hollow in Sen's Fortress where you can defeat him for Hush.

    -Dusk of Oolacile: First, head to Darkroot Basin where the Hydra is. Defeat it and head to the very back of the rear cavern (avoid falling into the lake and dying) to find a Yellow Crystal Golem. Defeat it and you will free Dusk of Oolacile. Speak to her and accept her offer of teaching you her sorceries. She will disappear afterwards.
    You can find her summon sign near where you fought the Hydra to shop with her.

    -Ingward: Ingward is hanging out on a rooftop in New Londo Ruins. Speak to him before you defeat the Four Kings. After you've beaten them, he'll set up shop in Firelink Shrine.

    Good luck! Any and all comments/questions are welcome!
