On September 10th, 2012, a countdown appeared on Obsidian's website, teasing about a brand new game, entitled Project X. This teaser depicted a number in the middle of a dragon eating its own tail – reminiscent of the Norse Jörmungandr or the classical Ouroboros – followed by cryptical dialog lines. Additional clues could be found hidden in the webpage's source code.

What do the words mean?
Nothing. The Dirge of Eir Glanfath is sound without form, a lone voice crying out in mourning because it must.

Source code clue: 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.

'The book unread is unwritten. The reason we don't explain it is the reason we use it. Its power is in its mystery. That is the Leaden Key, in part, in whole. Is it clear?
Digging for truth buries the seeker.

Source code clue: Two centuries ago, your divine champion told the people of Dyrwood to grovel at his feet. If you've come on pilgrimage to the blasted crater that was our reply, Godhammer Citadel is *that* way.

I recognize your pain. Your kind must learn it comes from straining against the turning of the world. It spins thus. You cannot stop it. One day, you will wake up. You will stop pulling. The pain will be gone. Until then, all your waking hours are suffering.

Source code clue: In time, waves washing against the fingers of Geiran's Grasp will call them back into the sea. The difference between you and the sea is that the sea does not stop.

This world wants to drag us down, it does. It made you a Watcher. No one asks for that. And the weight, that guilt they want to hang around my neck, you don't have to carry it one more step. You think they won't let you rest, but it's not up to them. It never was.

Source code clue: There is no sleep for the Watcher.

One good life. One extraordinary life. What levy must be paid for such a thing?
If the gods won't answer, it's for us to decide.
