A new landing page has appeared on Obsidian Entertainment's website teasing something so mysterious, it is only known as "Project X." Yesterday, there was a number "4" inside an ouroboros and today the number is "3", so odds are this is a countdown to a major reveal on Friday.
Some text has accompanied the countdown each day, with yesterday's text reading, "What do the words mean?" Below is, "Nothing. The Dirge of Eir Glanfath is found without form, a lone voice crying out in mourning because it must."
Checking the page's source code revealed some additional text: "To tenderness, fellowship. To fellowship, vigilance. So bring we all to the Night Market. I am the Spindle of Esenath. Know me by my light and stand with me in darkness."
There has been speculation this page is a teaser for Obsidian's upcoming Wheel of Time game; however, odds are this is for something else entirely. Today's text reads: "The book unread is unwritten. The reason we don't explain it is the reason we use it. Its power is in its mystery. That is the Leaden Key, in part, in whole. Is it clear?"
Below that is, "Digging for truth buries the seeker."
Once again, another message is in the source code: "Two centuries ago, your divine champion told the people of Dyrwood to grovel at his feet. If you've come on pilgrimage to the blasted crater that was our reply, Godhammer Citadel is that way."
Obsidian certainly wants us all guessing as to what will be revealed on Friday, as they've set up a dedicated forum section where everyone can speculate. It could be a possible RPG steeped in Norse mythology since Eir is one of the Norse goddesses, Dungeon Siege 4, or something else altogether. Hopefully more concrete leads will come tomorrow and Thursday, but either way we won't have long to find out.
