The Elden Ring Community Divided Over Origins of the Enigmatic Impaler

As Elden Ring's Shadow of the Erdtree expansion gears up for its June 21 debut, fans are immersed in a vigorous debate surrounding the expansion's poster villain, Messmer The Impaler. The question on everyone's mind: is Messmer a meticulously woven thread in the Elden Ring tapestry from the beginning, or is he a brand-new creation unleashed exclusively for the DLC? With his iconic image – robes billowing, snakes writhing – Messmer has ignited passionate discussions. Director Hidetaka Miyazaki's revelation about George R.R. Martin's lore adds more layers to the mystery, leaving players in a spirited tug-of-war between theories.

 

Catacombs, Kinship, and Imaginative Ties

Diving deep into the Elden Ring landscape, enthusiasts have unearthed potential breadcrumbs leading to Messmer's past. The Impaler's Catacombs in the base game have become a playground for speculation, as players theorize it might be Messmer's lair or final resting place. Over on Reddit, the conspiracy web expands, suggesting familial ties between Messmer and existing characters like Malenia and Miquella. With the expansion's imminent release, players are like digital detectives piecing together a compelling puzzle, uncovering what might be Messmer's hidden backstory.

 

Land of Shadows Unveiled

At the heart of Shadow of the Erdtree lies the Land of Shadows, the battleground for theories surrounding Messmer. Could he be a forsaken child, abandoned by his mother, Marika, a patron of the shadowy realm? Or is Messmer a banished figure, sent to the funky new map as punishment for Erdtree transgressions? With his fiery red hair adding to the enigma, players are poised for answers on June 21. Yet, in true Elden Ring fashion, the expansive DLC is expected to unleash revelations and a fresh wave of questions, cementing it as FromSoftware's most ambitious venture yet. Get ready for a rollercoaster ride through Elden Ring's mesmerizing lore!
