If you want a quest involving him later, do not kill him. If you kill him you can get his ring, but if you let events play out then you can receive his armor as well as a pretty cool quest. I screwed myself over by killing him, so hopefully this helps someone else out.

It seems like a tough choice. It is a really good ring. --- What is video game?!

It's really a matter of user choice I guess. I like the ring but at the same time it would have been cool to see it all play out.

the wiki says you can find the ring in the beginning, plus it breaks when you remove it

If you let him live he kills Anastasia the girl who upgrades your flask and the bonfire near her disappears.
I could care less about his fruity gold armor and having to fight him in boss form with two other dudes with him just so you can get her soul back and bring her back to life.
I say kill his ass and avoid that whole thing.
Besides, when I start my new game+ I'm going to kill him again and have two of those rings.

Psh, his armor isn't that great!

Plus he just sounded like a douche.

You can have two without doing NG+, Sparkly gives them out like candy if you have the right trade item. --- Cannot forgive the mind, drained of emotion, that seeks eternity.

It's a great ring with incredible buffing, but it breaks if you unequip it.
I let him live because he reminded me of Yurt, and Yurt's a total harda** that gives you stuff if you just wait to kill him in Demon's Souls.
I recognized the parallel and figured he'd be worth something later. --- Carpe Diem
