A hapless Elden Ring invader recently faced off against Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R.R. Martin, the fantasy icons who created the Lands Between.
An Elden Ring invader recently encountered hilarious recreations of FromSoftware president Hidetaka Miyazaki and A Song of Ice and Fire writer George R.R. Martin. The open-world epic and its fantasy setting of the Lands Between were created as a collaboration between Miyazaki and Martin. The wild success of the role-play adventure led to an Elden Ring cosplay by George R.R. Martin, and now two players have turned him and his friend Hidetaka Miyazaki into a Tarnished tag team.
Known for creating the Song of Ice and Fire saga, and his frustrating inability to finish it, George R.R. Martin played an essential role in developing Elden Ring. The novelist created the vast world of the Lands Between and detailed its pantheon of ruling deities, laying a solid foundation of backstory and lore. Hidetaka Miyazaki and the FromSoftware team then used this history to craft the present story of Elden Ring, which sees the world changed and demigods corrupted by an event called the Shattering. A popular theory surrounding the game suggests that George Martin named Elden Ring demigods based on his initials, though the legendary writer has denied this rumor.

A Reddit user named haxborn recently invaded another player, only to unexpectedly encounter Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R.R. Martin. The invader’s goal is to kill the Host of Fingers, which becomes a much more daunting task when the targets are the creators of the game. Both in-game cosplays hilariously but accurately reflect the real Miyazaki and Martin, making for a truly dynamic duo. The Furled Finger’s Trick-Mirror item even lets both players become the Host of Fingers, reflecting their equal role in creating the Lands Between. Many commenters even say that Miyazaki and Martin should be the final boss of a Elden Ring DLC.
Elden Ring’s customization tools can recreate a wide range of characters, with one player recently bringing God of War’s Kratos to Elden Ring. The build recreates the legendary Ghost of Sparta, complete with his ashen white skin and facial tattoo. The iconic Blades of Chaos are not available in the Lands Between, but the player cleverly recreates them using a pair of whips covered in fire grease. While Kratos is capable of carving through demigods and monsters, even he would struggle to defeat Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R.R. Martin.
As the literal creators of the Lands Between, Miyazaki and Martin would make a terrifying encounter for any Elden Ring player. As two Hosts of Fingers they are sure to shock any invader, and the hilarious encounter no doubt ended in victory for the pair of fantasy icons. Miyazaki and George R.R. Martin created the world of Elden Ring and all its inhabitants, and they can destroy those inhabitants just as easily.
