The topic of discussion, this time, draws on a theory put around by various enthusiasts, who thought that through the initials of some characters present in the game there was an easter egg inserted by Martin himself.
The truth, apparently, is not the one told by the fans, with the writer who wanted to unravel the mystery with his recent statements. “There's a weird story on the internet about how I 'hid' my initials in Eden Ring because… ah… some of the characters have names that start with R, or G, or M. To which I say,“ Huh? What? Truly?" This is new to me. I've been writing and publishing stories since 1971 and I suspect I've given characters names starting with R, G and M from the very beginning. Along with all the other twenty-three letters of the alphabet. "
George R.R. Martin comments on the claim that he purposely used his initials for some character names in ELDEN RING (since a lot of those names begin with G, R or M)https://t.co/pO7xReKh5i pic.twitter.com/LhXQ0fEM6d
