Interesting. I hadn’t heard that one. But I counted back myself, and ended up with the letters H, D, E, A and N. Which could indeed be unscrambled as “and he.”
Alternatively, there is apparently something in source code someone found, that includes a comment to the effect of “Is it an anagram or random letters?”
Which means they could all be the beginning letter of different words.
H could be the Host… or hostage. Though, I’m not too clear what the other letters would represent.
If the letters aren’t an anagram but are still part of a message, it could be:
“Markiplier is a hostage” (putting the “Hostageplier” moniker into an actual sentence)
“Darkiplier is here” (this one’s my guess)
or even, as someone else pointed out
We don’t have enough information yet for anyone to say for sure, though. But I have a feeling we’ll get our next clue by tonight.
