Elden Ring: George RR Martin was suspected of having hidden his initials there
On March 21, George RR Martin wrote about the game again in a paragraph in a new “blog” post (the author’s site is called “Not A Blog”). In these lines, the author dwells on a rumor that he concealed his initials in Elden Ringreleased on February 25.
“Oh, and just as I’m trying to clear things up, there’s a weird story on the internet that I ‘hid’ my initials in ELDEN RING because…ah…some of the characters have names. starting with R, or G, or M. To which I respond, ‘Hey? What ? Really ?’ It was news to me. I’ve been writing and publishing stories since 1971, and I suspect I gave characters names starting with R, G, and M from the start. It’s hard to come up with names, especially since A SONG OF ICE & FIRE uses so many of them, and I like to give family members and loved ones names that have something in common… but really, why should i hide my name in the game? My name is right there ON the game, as one of the creators. Hey, ELDEN RING is exciting enough that we need to make things up. »
One false secret less, there are always thousands still to be discovered.
