In my game, I spawned at the central Yharnam light post a while after defeating Father Gascoigne, but before defeating the blood starved beast. One dropped the crow hunters badge, while the other one dropped the "heir" rune.
I know the one that dropped the badge is a hunter with a quest line, but I can't remember which one. (I have been reading the play through because I'm still learning how to play well.)
I am just curious if this is a normal thing, or something that wasn't normally supposed to happen. And furthermore, will this affect my game later on?
