disasters are gone after the defeat of the gravelord servant

So I signed back on after running to cvs and i got that message. I'm in Anor Londo as a Hollow and I've never seen this message before. All I'm doing is killing the giant knights to farm for souls to level up so I can mess around with the different weapons.

Anyone know what this means? I'm hiding in a corner cus I think I got invaded.

You were gravelorded. It's supposed to spawn Black Phantom versions of enemies, which are much more difficult than the normal kind. However, it's currently glitched and has a high chance of doing absolutely nothing. If you explore the area you got the message in, you might be able to find his sign and invade him. Killing him (or if any of the 2 other people he's gravelording kill him) you'll get a message stating that disasters have been removed. An easy way to check if it's working is to use the elevator to the Undead Parish from Firelink Shrine. If, as you come out, you get mauled by a glowing Heavy Knight, then you're being gravelorded truly. Make sure not to go offline, or you might make the curse permanent.

Everything should work just fine. I just read once that you can become permanently gravelorded if you go offline with the curse on you. I'm still a newbie, too!

You're sure there's no glowing (red or blue, I'm unsure which it is) Heavy Knight left outside the Firelink Shrine? If there isn't, you'll be just fine. Play normally, don't bother changing your ways, as you lucked out of a gravelording.

The covenant is not glicthed, it is more misunderstood and there are still a few mysteries to it.

As you know summon signs spawn in multiple worlds.

However, the current theory is that just like summoning signs (RSS, WSS, and sunbro) the gravelord sign spawns in multiple worlds. However only 3 of those worlds will be cursed with BP NPC clones. So even if you get a notice that there are disasters present in your world or that disasters have disappeared from your world due to the defeat of the gravelord servant. And even if you see a gravelord sign on the ground it does not mean you will get Black Phantom NPC clones.
