The Old Dragonslayer isn't Ornstein. There's no electricity on his spear, and his armor is gray instead of gold. Those could be explained by the passage of time, I suppose... but then there's the fact that Ornstein is dead. He was killed long, long ago by the chosen undead.

This Dragonslayer is just part of the same order, which is probably why he also has a Leo Ring: when you have a group of elite spear-wielding knights, it makes sense to give them all a weapon that greatly benefits spear-wielders.

"... it makes sense to give them all a weapon that greatly benefits spear-wielders."
It is explicitly stated that only four rings were created, one being given to each of the Four Knights of Gwyn.

"Ornstein almost certainly wasn't Gwynevere's illusion, because those break after taking damage. Also, illusions tend not to make people bleed."
When the illusion is lifted from Anor Londo, normal enemies disappear. Said enemies take more than a single blow to defeat and are capable of making you bleed.

According to the lore of Dark Souls, many "gods" left Anor Londo, including Gwynevere. It is possible that Ornstein was among them.
His dulled armor may be, as you suggested, caused by aging/neglect.
His dulled combat abilities may also be caused by aging, but because he uses dark magic, I like to speculate that he was resurrected[?] and corrupted by the Abyss. 

MAJOR SPOILERS: Nashandra is the rebirth of Manus, after all.

Now that bows are a more viable option, I think it might be fun to see a pure (or mostly pure) ranger type playthrough. Focus on using the various bows, maybe with a paired-dagger backup for when you have to melee. All I ever really saw in Dark Souls was pure melee or melee and magic builds, it'd be nice to see an archer character.

"That attack! There's nothing I can do... other than stand here and take it for the 20th time, despite my ability to easily move out of the way when I see them start to belly-flop right in front of me. There's just no way to avoid this ridiculously heavily telegraphed attack!"

Aww, I was hoping you'd join that covenant. From what I hear, that's the "This game is way too easy, please make it harder." covenant.

I was more thinking of my own enjoyment. That would have been hilarious.

When you touched the crystal vortex thing, it looked like it was repairing the landscape, actually. It wasn't replacing the tiles that were already gone, but it was turning the red/orange tiles back to green.

Dichromatic eyes means you're colorblind (you only have two cones, which means you can't see all colors). Heterochromia is when each eye is a different color.

From what it says, the Cracked Blue Eye Orb is just like the Cracked Red Eye Orb, but it invades sinners, like the Darkmoon Blades from Dark Souls. And just for the record, you joined the Way of Blue covenant, not the Blue Sentinels. The Blue Sentinels are the ones that get summoned to help members of the Way of Blue when they get invaded.

"In case you stopped by for the deaths..."
Why else would we be here?
If you really want to entertain us with some deaths, you could join that "hardmode" covenant. Apparently you can talk to the cat to leave your covenant once you've died a few dozen times to the souped-up enemies.

For future reference, Adaptability is not the useless stat: it increases the animation speed of almost everything you do. With high Adaptability, you'll roll faster, parry faster, lift your shield faster and even use items faster. I'm not sure if it still makes you run faster or not (it did at one point in the Beta), but still, it's incredibly useful for any character.

In case nobody's pointed it out yet: the shortcut wasn't being inconsistent. You destroyed the explosive barrels that were used to open it before the firebomber had a chance to blow them up. Next time you're in the area, don't destroy those barrels next to the wall, then let a firebomb hit them. That will blow the wall (if the other shortcut you're thinking about that did this was in the Lost Bastille, it's the same problem: the giant crack in the wall has to be hit by an exploding barrel, not just a firebomb or something).
