A trip to the website of much-revered RPG maker Obsidian Entertainment will bring you to a landing page containing mysterious text, number 4, and a dragon eating its own tail (or an Ouroboros if we’re gonna be all symbolic).
The text reads: “What do the words mean? Nothing. The Dirge of Eír Glanfath is sound without form, a lone voice crying out in mourning because it must.”
A little look at the page’s source and you’ll find the 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.”
A click of the image will take you to a forum named “Project X Speculation & Discussion” full of people wondering what’s going on.
We can’t make head or tail out of it (get it?), and it seems the users on the forum are clutching at straws too. Moderator Gorth did post a message they’d found from Chris Avellone though:
“Still, it’s nice to be home and back into the thick of things here. Speaking of which, for those of you who’ve come to visit the page, you may have noticed our countdown. Our countdown to what? It should become clear in 4 days or so – stay vigilant.”
Unless Avellone is trying to throw us all off a little more, the fact the 4 is referred to as a countdown perhaps means this won’t be the fourth in a franchise, like many were suspecting.
