Post Mysterious 'Project X' teaser appears on Obsidian's website

An apparent countdown has appeared on RPG developer Obsidian's site. It depicts a number four in the middle of a serpent eating its own tail (reminiscent of the Norse Jormungandr or Classical Ouroboros). The caption beneath reads: 'What do the words mean? Nothing. The Dirge of E*r Glanfath is sound without form, a lone voice crying out in mourning because it must.'

A quick search reveals that there is no such place or person as E*r Glanfath, real or fictional. However, 'Glanfath' bears a striking resemblance to a form of the Irish verb glan, 'glanfaidh,' which means to clean or to clear. Similarly, E*r is similar to ?ire, the native Gaelic name of Ireland. And a dirge is traditionally a song for the dead.

Clicking on the number sends you to a forum for 'Project X Speculation & Discussion.' We're guessing that Obsidian may be working on some kind of Irish/Gaelic-themed project ' likely a story-based RPG, based on its past work. We don't know when or if the number will become a three ' it may not be a countdown at all ' but with four days left in the work week, it's a good guess. If we're lucky, they'll tell us what the craic is going on this Friday
