    Generally speaking, PvE is a bore. So I want this game to scare me witless. The occasional good joke would go down well too.

    wtf, somebody inside funcom had to have leaked this, no way someone random just discovered it

    Actually the guy that discovered it says he is a programmer with too much time on his hands he claims he was looking at the website source code and noticed something unusual so took it apart and stumbled on it.

    As in went black?

     

    Or did the blue screen with 'No Signal' in the middle of it pop up like it's supposed to do(and like the article says it does)?

     

    Or is this a very terribly executed troll?

    Those runes look like the ones in the back of Lord of the Rings.  Elf runes if I remember right...

    I might know what it is.  I'll post it in a few minutes :)

    Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

    BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

    That is working as intended. Had the exact thing happen. Got a message "no signal". I waited and suddenly got the image.

    Interesting.

    its germanic, old germanic, most commonly known as old english. it was a mix between a language the old german war tribes used and altered slightly during french raids on churches which had some of the only written language.

    You might be on to something. It almost seems like a combination of elder futhark and old english.

    There's only one symbol I haven't found yet (outlined in red):

    I've been searching for that symbol as well. The dots on the outside might be strategically placed .

  • SorrowSorrow St Pete, FLMember Posts: 1,195

    Just be aware there is no source code for the rune page, it is simply an image and duh anyone looked to see if its bigger that it should be if saved as an image.

     

    Just came to me as I was typing that , that the runes could be nothing but a red herring.

    Maybe the unknown simbol is there to mark something.

    Where you should start reading, maybe...


  • Kylia61Kylia61 Salem, ORMember Posts: 14

    OK what you are looking at people is the ANGLO-SAXON FUTHORC of 33 letters...the mysterious letter marked by gigat seems to be HALF of the symbol GAR or hard G. Only Anglo-Saxon Furthorc has it.

    if theres puzzles like this in the actual TSW game it may fustrate alot of people and you will often see in one or more of the chat channels "how do you fit all 5 stones into the statue for begginer quest"

    Guys all it is, is the ancient and sacred flush toilet of the Great God Imhotep. The litte sigil is a warning. It says "Terrible curses and ruin to those who disturbeth my rest, and to those who useth all the bog roll and do not replaceth thus."

    Or some crap like that. Honestly you little Scoobies get hysterical over the least little things. image

    This is amazing. Already set into buying this game just from these puzzles. 

     

    Some silly notes: 24 characters in the language. Is it a possibilty that the Inner-7'oclock rune is a combo of the '<' symbol for K along with Inguz 'slanty square' for ng just combined into one rune? According to Funcom forums; these runes appear 'alphabeticaly'. Maybe it's a society's mark.  The one rune disrupting the flow, casuing chaos.
