Another day, another Teaser Image. This time, 'tis Ice4.jpg
With the following Rune:
Well, that's different. It looks like 3 celestial bodies orbiting a central mass, but I don't recall any francises' universe with either a 3-planet solar system or 3-moon planetary system. It may be a reference to the three Blizzard Franchises. If anyone has any tips, can they please let me know. Also, Anonymous in comments linked to this image, based on ice3.jpg, theorising a pentagram arrangement for the Runes. I'm somewhat skeptical of these theories, but it's interesting to note that the Rune in ice4.jpg is in the 'right' place to reinforce the imagery.
ADDED2: Elementhos in comments has said that the rune formation looks like the arrangement of major celestial bodies above an Arcane Sanctum, a Warcraft 3 building and WoW architectural feature. From Wowwiki:
Good call that man. You can also check these out in WoW by looking at the Blood Elf 'Sanctum of the Sun' in the Ghostlands.
The Word of the Day, from the master.css file, is 'cold'. Heh, no ****, I could have told them that ;). The 'Hidden' image is 16.jpg, which may (or may not) correspond to the letter 'P', giving us D. O. W. and P. Honestly, right now, I'm stumped, though I'm ruling out 'Do-wop: World of Rhythm&Blues-Craft'.
I think we can all guess which 'tile' of the final image will be up last ;). It's galling because this looks so damn familiar, but it tallies with nothing I can remember from any of the three franchises.
It's come to my attention that the numbers we have so far are 4, 15, 16 and 23. Fans of Lost may well recognise these are 4 of the 6 'Numbers', leaving potentially 8 and 42 to find.
EDIT3: More Fun Speculation, again posted on MMO-champion, attributed to a guy called Zaxinal.
[added: LOL, I just pwned myself. The theory is nice, but trash, Tuesday's word was 'Cavern', not 'Glacier', so disregard. We can still spell out TYRA_L if we correctly use 'Cavern' rather than 'Glacier', and have 'I', 'O' and 'N' left over, but seeing as T,R,A and L are common letters it's much less compelling. This theory has legs, but 'IS LOST' isn't the answer we will be searching for. That'll teach me for not double-checking theories that have been posted.]
Zaxinal: This is probably just a coincidence, but i'll throw another theory into the mix.[Wrong. Is it now TYRA_L IN _O__? Or Perhaps it will be TYRAEL IS GONE as flowz0r in comments suggested. We'll find out tomorrow.]
Using the image numbers as sperate digits, and applying them to their corresponding css class names to get the letters, using 0 as the first letter in each word you can get 2 letters per day.
Tundra - 04: T, R
Glacier - 15: L, E
Icy - 23: Y, I
Cold - 16: O, L
Knowing that there will be 4 more letters, you can create TYR_EL I_ LO__
With the The Valenzetti Equation from Lost being 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42 which so far fits the numbers we have, the final result can probably be guessed to be
TYRAEL IS LOST
Here's a fun piece of speculation posted over at MMO-champion linking the ice4 image to the Diablo2 box art.
