First of all, good job on solving that.o V e R T H i N K i N G
(not sure about apostrophe)
An 'abjad' is a writing system in which only consonants are written, but an 'impure' abjad is one that does have a few marks that indicate or hint at vowels. I guess what we don't know yet is whether or not the apostrophe will represent any word-initial vowel, or if it's always "O".Seems Foenician will be firmly placed in the impure abjad category.
I honestly thought that Anu meant he tweaked the way the runes were drawn, not changed their meanings. But, once we received FoenicianW1P.png. some problematic things came to light. Some of the runes have more drastically changed, and some are missing entirely. Here's a comparison of the old Halloween runes with the set found in the "Overthinking" puzzle and "FoenicianW1P.png":I'm not entirely satisfied with some of the glyphs, and might end up changing them. Some of them already changed from Halloween to now.
Yeah I think that's probably it. if it's not target practice, then they're apparently selling tickets to a frigate.practice maybe? Or maybe not.
I was under the impression that we found out that section was "pact day" PC/KT D. However, I did miss that oliander had a different writing for d so I suppose that's probably incorrect?First of all, kudos for reviving a thread called "Background Easter Egg" on Easter.
I'm always happy when this thread gets some love.
You've got as "d" under "Symbols we know."
But, we only have one "d" so far (it appears in "Oleander"), and it's spelled with instead.
The rune only appears in that annoying not-yet-deciphered part of the Halloween runes ().
Although, to add to the confusion, appears in Anu's revised runeset ("W1P") while does not!
It's tempting to guess that is the new , except that they BOTH appear in the Halloween message, so at least back then (pre-revision) they presumably represented different letters.
Heeey @Anukan , since we'll probbaly be seeing more runes when story mode launches, when you finalize the runeset could we get them as smilies here on the forum? Low priority obviously but it'd be fun, not just for the runic studies department here but for all the fans to use once the fœnecian writing system becomes well understood.
EDIT: fixed a typo
I might be way late to the party on this, but isn't the one in the booth simply "Target", the joke being that it's like the American department store?Hello all!
3. The booth
It'd be easier to read if smug buck there would move, but...
Yeah I think that's probably it. if it's not target practice, then they're apparently selling tickets to a frigate.
I look forward to seeing more of these in the game.
I believe that was said, but I could be wrong. Still, I appreciate more input on the runes. I think some are still unsolved, or at the very least unconfirmed, if you want to take a crack at it.I might be way late to the party on this, but isn't the one in the booth simply "Target", the joke being that it's like the American department store?
I think that says Undersn. This isn't consistent with Mighty Hunter Alicorn's guess above, but it's a coherent fighting game reference, while I'm not sure what Vndrqn would come out to, if his guess is correct.
