God of War is available for more than a week now. If you had access to the Stone Mason edition of the game, you might notice that it comes with a Cloth Map that had ‘runic inscription’ that could be translated to English. As it turns out, once fans translated them to English, they learned about a hint that talked about the two blacksmiths in the game: Sindri and Brok.
The hint was translated to a cryptic message (via reddit) that talked about a mysterious location.
“The brilliant huldra blacksmiths Brok and Sindri travelled all around the lands of Midgard to create this great map for the giantess Faye a mysterious trasure was found at the space between them at the conclusion of their journey unfortunately for the brothers the treasure’s location was instantly forgotten Brok retraced his steps and blamed Sindri for losing the treasure Sindri retraced his own steps but clearly knew it was Brok’s fault they could not find it the trasure was never found and neither brother has spoken to the other either since”
“To Reveal the great treasure stand inside the golden circle and look straight ahead to tyrs temple now look to the left brazier look back to tyrs temple look to the right brazier and back to left brazier”
“Having just looked to the left brazier now look back straight ahead to tyrs temple again now look down to the floor then look up to the right brazier and then back to the left brazier and finally look to tyrs temple to reveal the forgotten treasure”
It took a while to decode this message but once the fans were able to put 2 and 2 together, they found out that this message was pointing towards a location in Muspelheim Tower. The video guide below shows it all in detail.
As for the reward for this quest, you get a some nice gear to take along with you including an Axe Pommel and a Relic that increases all stats for Kratos.
This seems like a rather cool secret that the developers decide to hide in a cloth map that was only available for the Stone Mason edition. If you follow the video guide, you should be able to unlock it in the game as well however it is nice to see how the fans were able to come together to discover this interesting secret.
God of War is available now exclusively for the PS4. The game was developed by Sony Santa Monica and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
