A few days ago several gamers and fans were speculating that Martin more than just helped create the lore of the game, he seemingly also hid his initials in Elden Ring’s characters’ names. However, this theory has been debunked by the author himself in his latest post on the blog Not A Blog. He wrote:

“Oh, and as long as I am setting stuff straight, there’s a weird story all over the internet about how I “hid” my initials in ELDEN RING because… ah.. some of the characters have names beginning with R, or G, or M. To which I say, “Eh? What? Really?” This was news to me. I have been writing and publishing stories since 1971, and I suspect that I have been giving characters names beginning with R and G and M since the start.”

“Along with the other twenty-three letters of the alphabet as well Coming up with names is hard, especially since A SONG OF ICE & FIRE uses so many of them, and I am fond of giving family members and close kin names that have something in common… but really, why would I have to hide my name inside the game? My name is right there ON the game, as one of the creators. Hey, ELDEN RING is exciting enough, no need to make up stuff.”

So was it all really a coincidence? What do you think? Tell us in the comments below!
