At the very end of the Game Trailers video there is some footage of the game, including hearing Death and the Elder Maker Eidard's voices. You also see what appears to be a Maker shopkeeper that trains skills, named Thane. There is also some footage of a boss fight with a giant Tormented Gate.

And it would be good to make a "Makers" page (I don't know how), since we now have names of three more Makers appearing in DS2: Karn, Thane, and Elder Eidard
