An ‘Elden Ring” Player Discovers a Huge Secret About The Game’s Map

Although it has been 10 weeks since its first release, it is still thick with rich story and tasty lore. Many have been discussing the story’s demigods. They are all named with R, G, or M. This is just like their creator George R. R. Martin.
User u/le_bonjour noticed something suspicious about Godwyn. Although Elden Ring lore is open to interpretation, we know that old Godwyn was a dead man. He was probably killed by someone, perhaps Ranni or his mum Marika. He could live in death because the job wasn’t done properly.
His corrupted body was laid to rest at the roots of Eritrea. The corruption allowed Deathroot to grow and more undead not to die. Godwyn, the first demi-god who died, is key to the plot. His death could have destroyed the Elden Ring, which, in turn, led to all the commotion we see in the game.
The way the corrupted corpse has been laid out and the fact that it has merged with the ground lead players to believe that the entire map of the Lands Between was created in his form. One commenter pointed out that this idea is from the Norse mythology, Elden Ring.
They also note that the body of Titan Ymir was used to make Midgaard in Norse mythology. Stone is his bone. Soil his flesh. Water his blood. His skull is visible in the sky, while his brain matter remains intact with swirling clouds.
Although it sounds familiar, it is only a theory.
