It all started (at least for some of us) with a letter..
An old document attatched to a mail or posted at forums.
A grim, odd arcane sky
Any god, I mark sacred.
A masked cry adoring
A dreamy, sick dragon.
- All four lines are anagrams of eachother.
- Another anagram is dark days are coming, leading to the website http://www.darkdaysarecoming.com
- A third anagram is dark demons cry gaia, which leads to http://www.darkdemonscrygaia.com which is the official discussion forum for the game.
Six texts, all in different languages, surround the poem.
de que manera estan involucrados los illuminati - spanish - roughly translates into "how does this involve the illuminati".
Amundsen fant det under isen - Norwegian - "Amundsen found it under the ice".
בני האלהים - Hebrew - "Sons of God"
Qu'est ce que ca veut dire? Qui sont les Huits? - French - "What does it mean? Who are the Eights ?"
Etwas über einen "Krieg der Finsternis" - German - "Something about/over a "War of Darkness""
4 lines 4 symbols The fourth age Are we approaching
The Illuminati are clearly mentioned.
However, whoever wrote “The Letter”, or at least the note in the top left corner, clearly was as in the dark as to the involvement of the Illuminati as we are.
Information about the Illuminati can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illuminati
On the document is a seal connected to the Knights Templar.
This gives us no concrete leads, only more theories. Will the Templar be fighting whatever fate befalls the Earth/Gaia?
Who are the Knights Templar?
To the left of the french text, there is a sign shaped like a eight lying on its side. This is the sign for Infinity.
The number 2012 is clearly written on the document.
This is, amongst other things, thought to point towards the year 2012, when the Mayan Calendar ends. (I'll add more about this in a while - promise)
More on 2012 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012
More theories involve:
- The release date for this game
- The Galactic Lock theory
Who/what are "The Eights" spoken of in the French text?
We have no answers, only theories. They include:
- 5 locations of the pentagram plus London, New York, and Shanghai
- The 8 demons in the First Heirarchy
- The 8 ancient gods of elementary power
- The symbol of new order
- The 8 Immortals in Chinese Mythology
- Eightfold path of Buddhism
- The Great 8
- The 8 members of Amundsens team
- The 8 familymembers of Noah, who were the only ones to be saved.
- The 8 notable Himalayan peeks
- The 8 prophets: Adam, Abraham, Noah, Moses, Jesus, Mani, Muhammad, and Mahdi
- The eight Immortals.
