    Wow… I felt like I understood the story and world of Elden Ring better than the other games, likely because I’ve come to look at these stories through your eyes. You still manage to blow my mind, however! Thank you once again for your beautiful interpretation of the masterpiece that this game turned out to be.

    • stoenchu122 says:

      Or maybe you are just used already to how FS represent the story and you know where to look for the lore

    • jokotv says:

      I just noticed that the symbol on the thorn wall of the elden tree looks similar to the nordic rune of wyrd or the web of wyrd which means fate or destiny maybe that changes sth

  2. Skyes says:

    Been waiting for you to drop some lore videos, such a beautiful video, you did an incredible job! Excited to see you dive deeper into each side of the war, feels like FromSoftware tried their best with this story

  3. Jamie Slays says:

    Amazing. I always look to you for story and lore explanation. I never can wrap my head around it all haha

  4. Jedediah Hopkins says:

    Tortoise being forever “dog” and being simply excepted by the community is still my favorite piece of lore from Elden Ring

  5. Dustin Schalk says:

    “And I suspect it was probably because of these lobsters….”

    That was quality humor right there 😂

    • faber green says:

      @Generic YouTube Account Thanks, that’s going to be in my nightmares tonight

    • Kev1nL says:

      Seriously, grade A joke right there. Those goddamn lobsters fucked me so many times when I first got to Liurnia

    • Generic YouTube Account says:

      @faber green What about a Runebear riding a lobster? Sounds like something they would do lol

    • faber green says:

      @Admiral General Aladeen I mean, a single Runebear could 100% take Godfrey, Radagon and the Elden Beast at the same time. Those things are actual abominations. So why not lobsters too

    • Admiral General Aladeen says:

      imagine thinking Godfrey and the Crucible Knights lost to the lobster. I mean its possible u know 😂🤣

  6. SauraXD says:

    i checked his channel every day, ITS FINALLY HERE!

  7. Lucian Jaeger says:

    A lot of people seem to miss Ranni sitting on a dead two fingers when they talk about her I’m glad you caught it. In fact it looks as though it was mangled not just killed which suggest there was hatred in its killing.

    • David says:

      LOL that last line is so strange and its truth makes it hilarious.

    • Michael Fuchs says:

      From my understanding Ranni stole a Fragment of Destined Death to kill herself and escape from her Empyrien Body that is bound to the greater Will, since she is drawn to other outer Gods. The Black Knifes who serve the two Fingers (Assassins Incantations) used this to kill Godwyn. Maybe for the same Reason the nameless King was exciled, he befriended the ancient Dragons they fought War for so long. If the Greater Will was involved in Godwyns Death it would explain why Marika shattered the Elden Ring after learning the Truth about the Death of her Firstborne.

      Or Ranni was just pissed at the greater Will because her Father left her Family to go and impregnant himself.

    • GrimViridian says:

      Crazy to me that they don’t, it was the first thing I noticed

    • Deusraix says:

      Which I honestly don’t get cuz the scene focuses on the mangled corpse for a little bit.

  8. Moon says:

    The dungeons at the end of catacombs was always so freaky to me. Dozens of bodies all merging into the strange bed of chaos looking gnarled mess of roots in the back. I knew something had to be involved there.

  9. Nick Richards says:

    From soft hid a lore detail in a children’s picture book, I think the “dogs” in elden ring are really some eldritch beasts called “tortoises”

  10. Thales Moustache says:

    “I doubt you could even imagine…” the insane effort put into this video!

    This video is a masterpiece, it brought tears to my eyes, great job!
