A few years back, speculation began to circulate that Papa Emeritus (and his “replacement” Papa Emeritus II) was actually Tobias Forge. While Ghost has still kept the real identities a secret (at least from the public, that is), it looks like we can thank Adam “Nergal” Darski for essentially confirming the rumors behind Papa’s real […]
