Ok, this much seems clear:

 

-The Project LA site, changes daily at 1PM EST, 10AM PST.

-The following eight glyphs displayed in the following order.

To consolidate some other info in the thread:

- The glyphs might just spell Deadfire (a pirate-infested archipelago in Pillars)

- The following wave image accompanied the fifth image:

52de6d30827e295e90c3af57a69b99870812a46f

- Josh Sawyer's humorous instagram drawing of an island.

- Josh Sawyer has been "counting down" on twitter by posting specific youtube videos.

- The 22 January teaser hinted "26.", which seems to indicate that something may be revealed on the 26th, which is the day after the final teaser image gets displayed.

- The 23 January teaser hinted "10.", which may possibly be the hour of the day for some announcement.  All updates have been at 10 AM PST.

- The 24 January teaser hinted "PST.", which pretty much confirms that a thing will happen 10 AM PST on the 26th.

- The 25 January teaser hinted "Tomorrow.   10:00AM PST.   Return."  That really isn't much of a hint.  Check out the site tomorrow to see how close community speculation was.

- The 25 January site introduces a countdown clock on the bottom of the page.  It seems to use local time to calculate the timer, so it is likely only accurate if you live in the PST time zone.

Mix of vailian, aedyran, engwithan and huana letters. I'm curious if they are associated with POE2 companions. There are 8 letters at all. And we have Eder's today.

Each letter also has a specific background color.  Today's is green.  But there are eight separate background colors.

 

Nothing special about the purple glyph.  It just is paired off with a purple background.

Well, then... give me a few minutes and i'll crank out an image with the suspected glyph/color pairings.

Perhaps you're right. I had assumed it came from this: https://www.instagra...awyer1975&hl=it

Ethis Gradient: Assuming you're correct, the order the letters reveal is not necessarily the order they're arranged in, right?

 

Hmmm... ADRIFT? What about the E's though...

Or something with adra core. 

 

About colors: now I doubt if they have something with companions identity. Too many similar shades for me.

I'm assuming nothing about my correctness :)

 

However, the order I presented the glyphs (left to right, left to right) is the same order I found the images while poking around. And today's background image and glyph line up with the first of each sequence.

 

I presume that it may be the reveal order, based only on a hunch that it would be easier to display them by sequence than have the java script hop around.  I'll double-check for any additional evidence to support these assertions.

Ship ownership confirmed then. All hail captain Watcher! or captain A--hole.

It makes the most sense, but I'm actually not sure about that second 'D'. It doesn't really look like the Huana 'T' either though.

Deadfire.

 

Hot damn!  That makes sense when combined with this other image I uh.... found.

Deadfire Archipelago

 

This southern region is still a frontier in many respects. Aumaua settlements and pirate-infested islands are often as inaccessible as they are lawless. Those who call the Deadfire home are necessarily hardened survivors, accustomed to extreme climates and cultural variation. Boreal dwarves, aumaua, and a mixed variety of other races populate the islands in unknowable masses. Many consider the Deadfire the last frontier on Eora, since the waters beyond swarm with deadly monsters that have halted even the most determined expeditions.
