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?

Nope. Can't say it is.

Good catch. Was there anything in the page source data for the "4" page?

Dyrwood is a Scottish surname. More evidence that this is something new and somewhat celtic/gaelic-influenced. "Divine champion" also implies mystical/magical/supernatural elements, so that's another point for it being fantasy genre.

Why is the first sentence on the teaser page the only one not in italics?

Sounds more and more like a generic fantasy setting.
Hopefully it is indeed Lovecraft or at least something relatively modern.

Nothing wrong with a well done fantasy. If anything, the last 5 years have seen a deluge of modern, postapocalyptic and sci-fi settings.

To answer my own question, Yes.

So, the totality of teases thus far:

(4)
"What do the words mean?"
"Nothing. The Dirge of Er Glanfath is sound without form, a lone voice crying out in mourning because it must."

(4 Hidden)
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.

I'm still holding out hope for a fantasy setting combined with high technology, i.e. fundamentalist religious order keeping the world in a dark age while rebels use scientific developments to advance their goals. But that's just me - generic fantasy is just too boring for my tastes, I'd much rather see a twist on it.

It seems like each letter of first hidden line in source will be revealed every day. Yesterday it was:
<!--. X . X X . X X -->
Today:
<!--. X . X X . T X -->

... And "evil religion keeping the world in a dark age" isn't generic in your view?

Well, there doesn't seem to be anything to differentiate here, so my guess is that X = consonant, and . = vowel. So we'd have an eight letter word, running v-c-v-c-c-v-T-c. My guess is the final combo is one of a limited number of options - most likely H, S, or another T.

Of course, that's just speculation, and not much use at this point.

ETA: Assuming the code is that simple, got it.

I must admit I'm a little weary of the "generic fantasy" setting of elves, dwarves, horses and medieval castles. But I'm also weary of sci-fi, dirty-grunge, punky mechanized tech type settings, too. Both games and films. So really, it just comes down to gameplay, characters, and dialogue for me, since all the background settings are just that ... background.

It would be pleasant, however, if it's a wooded forest type setting, that there will be combat fodder that consists of something more interesting than wolves, bears, etc - eg, I wouldn't mind a gameworld that doesn't feel like, well, Earth with magic spells or giant robots with laser rifles.

The only people that could have thought this was Wheel of Time related are the people that know nothing of Wheel of Time. As much as I wish it could be, what we've seen so far matches nothing in WoT.

Something that just crossed my mind, which is not really related to Obsidian, but the whole industry: Developers and designers don't want players to have waiting times in their games, because it is boring. But marketing wants players to wait for days. It even goes so far to announce a countdown for a countdown announcement. I hate waiting, not only in games but also for announcements and countdowns and such. Especially countdowns start to make me angry the more of them I see. It is a pain and doesn't hype me up more than a generic announcement does.

tl;dr - annoyed of waiting. Countdowns suck.
