Ok, so the pictures that accompanied the Press Release about Celestia did not come through when I tried to send them in. They might have been too beefy in size.
Regardless, here they are:
(You can click on those to make them bigger . . . you know . . . save them to your desktop as a background or something.)
And now, let's break those pictures apart and do the analyze thing! First up, the Celestia pictures:
I believe this says "where is celestia" . . . so, someone is trying to find celestia by using a map and compass to mathematically track down celestia. Cool.
This picture has the words "Theirs is a wanton life" (a wanton life is one that is wild or unruly I do believe.) So this is some kind of overgrown or wild environment we are seeing here. Notice that the lines on the picture of the large dome indicate this is a photo from within the dome, and yet it is still watery inside. Interesting.
I believe the words here say, "Celestia Underwater fortress." Perhaps this is a glimpse at the large celestia housing?
Here we have a rock with a spiral on it and something else, two or three circles that are laying on the border or outside of the spiral. Perhaps this is like an outer undiscovered layer of the spiral?
8/7 . . . I'm not sure what this is supposed to denote, but that is a strange fraction indeed. What we are seeing with Celestia is the seventh world on the spiral. How does the 8 work into the equation. Is this the eighth zone of the seventh world on the spiral? Interesting.
**UPDATE** Most of the comments seem to indicate this may be the release date: August 7th. **UPDATE**
Thems some big pinchers, yup. I can't make out the writing AT ALL on this page. I like the look of those weapons. I'm kind of reminded of the spears you can get in Mooshu.
Astral magic symbols obviously . . . it's very interesting how the astral magic school is somehow connected to the balance school though. Perhaps there is something to the balance school being a gateway to the astral schools?
New wands! I love new wands! I wonder if this is an example of the wands we will find in celestia.
I don't know about you guys, but that looks like a big tower. A big 17 level tower, yup. I fear that instance already.
This looks like a diver's helmet to me. I think we've got some deep sea diving ahead of us, my friends.
The other picture I'm not going to dissect as much. I would like to call attention to the Dr. Katzenstein type character, meaning that these experiments will probably be conducted in Marleybone. I would also like to point out that we have a piggle and a baby something (boglin?) combining into an egg.
Perhaps we will place two of our pets into seats and see what kind of egg we get from them. I'm instantly reminded of the pets on Moshi Monsters. In Moshi Monsters you attract pets by planting 3 seeds and trying to grow a certain combination of flowers. This maybe could work the same way as that.
I'd also like to draw attention to the stars and moons on the back wall. Perhaps we are harnessing the power of astral magic to make these strange combinations?
So many interesting things going on in these pictures here.
What are your theories?
