The Eld?

July 5, 2008

From my many mentions of fottergrafs and cartomobiles on here some people reading this will probably guess that I am a fan of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series. Well, last night I was playing Dot Hack and was surprised to see a post in the fake forums from The Eld! If you know anything about The Dark Tower then you’ll know that some of the Gunslingers, the knights in The Dark Tower series, are descended from Arthur Eld who is a reconditioned version of King Arthur. Whenever Roland and the other Gunslingers ride into battle the battle cry is “For Arthur And The Eld”. So is it coincidence that a fake forum poster in a fantasy role playing game is named The Eld? Maybe, but I don’t think so. Either way it’s pretty cool.
