I don't know what it means either tbh. I just remembered weeks ago people were either translating runes (or talking about the meaning of Odin's rune specifically) and saying something about running naked through a field at night lol Also about spinning in circles. Maybe it was in an Odin poem or something.
Anyway, that's what I did yesterday before I carried the rock to the rune. And then the rune camouflaged it : /
I remember throwing rocks at the runes before but I either didn't notice the camouflage or nothing happened. Yesterday I was looking into the Cairns being a clue due to their locations and I wanted to try to stack some rocks on the rune. On my way to get a rock, I got inspired and ran naked through a field at night xD
I got a better video tonight of the rock phenomenon than my previous one. Even if it's a weird glitch, I'm kind of having fun playing with the runes lol At least they're reacting and doing "something" for a change : / Runes 1 and 3
I know how you feel. I'm rolling with 4 manual save files (updating like every hour) crawling at a snail's pace to avoid these awful bugs. I've never had anxiety playing a game before.
If I hear them drop the she-bomb on my male Eivor I might riot. Give us one person or make them separate people. Twins/siblings with one dead at childbirth... Animus glitch sci-fi babble zapping one into oblivion... whatever. We don't care.
I think the main story quest waits forever when there isn't anything active going on. I always leave it for last and it never broke for me even after days of hunting and looting and exploring and doing basically nothing.
I wouldn't take my chances with side activities though in this glitchy game. I either complete them once I start them or make a manual save file before triggering them in case I change my mind in the middle of it and don't want to finish it. Reload save file and leave it for when I'm ready to see it through.
Yeah, there's a way. But it's dependent upon us (the players) how challenging we want to make it, not the game mechanics which we can't change at the moment.
We can reset our all our skills, equip our peasant starting outfit from Norway, (haven't tried it so don't know if we can unequip weapons?) and go bare handed, without special skills though even fully upgraded weapons will be limited to basic combat so that should still present a challenge. We can also self impose a permadeath rule. You died? Game over. Start back in Norway.
So yeah, we can create our own Nightmare mode where enemy levels don't mean a thing.
I appreciate being given a gender choice as playing a female character can be more immersive for me but it really depends on the game. I don't see game characters as "me" so I don't always choose the female. What's more immersive for me than a character's gender, is a well written character that not only fits the theme but that I actually like.
Granted, it's annoying hearing them call male Eivor a "she" but come on... it's not game breaking. If they don't fix it, we can always attribute the she-bombs to some bs "Animus glitch". Do you like him as a character? That's what's most important.
I picked male Eivor because I wanted to turn him into a ginger beast with a glorious Viking beard (like his voice actor Magnus Bruun). Cannon be dammed. I really like my male Eivor.
I tried my best to keep the angles as accurate as possible and included all the stars even though not all may have been visible to the unaided eye in Eivor's time.
The northernmost star is very large and bright (so definitely visible) but it falls northeast of rune #3 off the England map pointing us straight to Norway. If this holds true, the first or last rune or possibly the ah-ha moment should be in Norway.
I'm gonna look under some of those stars in England for now. I think we'll need our entire community to search Norway military style. Good lord it's all huge snow covered rocks
lol You'll see my Eivor fumbling and the rock rolling off but the rock was being camouflaged by the rune even while he's holding it.
I don't have enough storage on my USB for a video so I had to shoot it old school with my phone *sigh* It's still processing on youtube now.
I don't know if this has anything to do with it but here's exactly what I did:
I found a spot in Glowe that seemed to suggest I run naked through a field at night (I remember someone here saying they read that on a rune?) so I stripped Eivor, meditated until nighttime and ran to the north Carin in Glowe. I got dressed and grabbed a rock.
I placed the rock on the rune and meditated again to turn to daytime.
I hope you guys can duplicate it and it's not a glitch. I ran naked through a field for this....
Well the good news is tonight I loaded an earlier save (before I took off running, spun in circles, and danced naked in a field at night like a lunatic) and went straight for the magical rock. The rune still camouflaged it. The naked dancing is not needed. I mean... you can still do it if you want to with your Eivor's smile on her face. No judgement here. None.
Boat for transport out of Glowe:
I did something more productive today than play with my stupid magic rock xD
I actually looked under the stars in the Aquarius constellation (rather than draw it freehand from my head lol) and narrowed down some possible search areas under stars I couldn't line up.
My findings/ideas or possibly a big pile of Loki Rabbit's poop:
(Loki Rabbit is the south star)
North star (in Norway) possibly our starting point leading us to England.
Something is amiss in Snot....
Synch Point (middle star)
Book of Knowledge
The star in the blue circle is Skat. There are 4 pieces of gear (among other things) under it so I couldn't pinpoint exactly what it's referring to.
The star in the red circle I couldn't line up. So suspect? Maybe something is amiss there....
My magic rock sucks the life out of every rune it comes in contact with but I'd trade it for your cloud dragon xD
It's definitely a weird glitch and not intended as no one else seems to be able to duplicate it : (
But I'm curious... since you're also on a PS4, have you tried the rock? It's in the northwest Cairn location in Glowe (underneath the Cairn next to a movable big rock that hid/hides a treasure chest)

Fair enough. I'll grant you the latter part of your point and regrettably I agree : / We're still missing some non-mysterious fish as well...
Personally, I don't find this venture pointless though. Cannot solve this mystery yet but I'm learning about Norse culture, runes/symbols, and now ancient Roman and Greek art.
I can read the sky and wouldn't get lost in the woods at night without this game and Odin's rune mystery, but I'm now learning about subjects I never bothered looking into before.
I cannot speak for everyone here but personally I like to keep looking for clues. When this mystery is ready to be solved, I don't want to waste entire game days and nights throwing rocks and dead bodies at the runes when I should be dancing naked and feeding a cat instead. Know what I mean? : /
Oh thank goodness for you!
I did read the Romans recreated Greek sculptures, just had no idea why. The story behind it is bittersweet though. Kind of sad : (
What do you think about Ubi not using original Roman sculptures though?
Even I found a few original Roman ones in my Google studies xD I read they made Augustus from Prima Porta, Fonseca Bust and Equestrian Marcus Aurelius just to name a few. So they exist... Ubi just didn't use them : /
Good find! Thank you
Even a statue noob extraordinaire such as myself recognized them as Greek xD
I did some Googling and they could have easily copy and pasted an original Roman Gladiator statue (for example) all over our map instead of a recreated Spartan Hoplite. Could have done the same with another Roman piece instead of the recreated Discus Thrower.
So it makes me suspicious of it being intentional in places these Greek ones appear. I haven't revisited all the Roman ruins sites yet, but if I remember correctly, most of them only have Roman sculptures.
Same. I know little to nothing about them as well. Plus they were so similar in architecture, sculptures, armor, etc it's hard to distinguish between the two. Having said that, Ubi employs experts who know the difference unlike us noobs lol
The winged statue is Nike (to the Greeks) and Victoria (to the Romans). That one could go either way : /
Oof. I didn't even notice them until now but it looks like we have these original "Roman" works of art in our settlement as well...
Octavian even chisels away at the warrior one (he takes turns working on it and a Jorm runestone)
I just find it odd. I read the Romans copied and recreated some Greek sculptures for posterity's sake I suppose, but they had their own original sculptures Ubi could have showcased. Did they butcher the Roman culture as well as the Norse Vikings with inaccurate weapons and glow-in-the-dark armor? Or is this Greek reference intentional?
I'm thinking far ahead now and speculating that maybe Bran's Isu mask (I still think that's what we need to activate the runes) is Greek and not Roman. If so, then that will be a cool way to tie Valhalla to Odyssey bringing this trilogy full circle.
But alas, this too, remains to be seen.
I've been on a statue kick lately and although I've wondered about these particular statues before, I ignored them and just thought my assumptions were wrong. After finding another one though, I revisited my earlier suspicions and I'm wondering what you guys think...
Barring historical inaccuracies on Ubi's part, my lack of statue knowledge, and Roman architecture being similar, do these look Greek or Roman? Maybe it's because of the Corinthian looking helms but they look Greek to me, not Roman...
Which brought me to the Clausentum Bandit Hideout in Hamtunscire. The questionable warrior statue is there as well (a big one and a small one), but so is the Discus Thrower...
After some Googling I did find out the Romans copied the Discus Thrower and made their own statue but the original is 100% Greek. No one even associates it with the Romans because it's so famously Greek.
So if this is not one of many Ubi's historical inaccuracies and it's intended to be there, in an old Roman ruins site, the question is... why? What's it doing there?
Seems very sus to me....
Yeah I also see the pattern and it's indeed pretty close but unfortunately I don't think it's intended : / Eivor's grave tags are numbered and lettered suggesting we view the image a certain way (right side up from left to right). Flipping it upside down and mirroring it, makes it into something else that's not intended imo.
But I don't know for sure of course as my own theory and speculations regarding the runes are pretty much "out there" as well lol
I'm almost convinced Ubi used the Aquarius constellation for the Odin's rune mystery (with the release of Valhalla), to mark our entry into the new Age of Aquarius (we've been in the Age of Pisces for the past 2150+ years).
So yeah, my Aquarius constellation theory is just as convoluted as the tags xD
