I’ve translated more of the mural in Jotunheim
Continued from this article: translations of the prophetic fresco at the end: GodofWar (reddit.com) by
uh… half right, I found something and I have some notes. Yes, I know it was two years later, but I was very curious about those passages and decided to do my own research.
Old nose: Swick
Svik means “betrayal” from what I saw, but Semi-Safety may be on to something with this translation, we’ll get to that later.
There are two passages in the final fresco that only Kratos sees, one of which is half-pointed:
ᛒᛚᛟᚦ ᚷᚢᚦᚫ ᚠᛖᚦᚱᚫ ᚠᛖᚦᚱᚫ ᛏᚱᚢᚾᚫᚦᚱ ᛖᚱᛖᚾᛞᛁ ᚠᚢᚾᛞᛁᛏ
(Mount Trunarra Tngndin Ehrendi Bloor Foundation)
Translation: blood of the gods, blood of the father, trust in something (tngndinn is the wrong word), found thing.
I’ll come back to that later. You can see another detail in the second photo in this gallery:
Mural of the God of War – spoiler post – Imgur
It is broken and shows only a few words, but it talks:
ᚺᛖᚱ ᛖᚱ ᚺᚹᛖᚱ
ᛚᚨᚢᚠᛖᛁ ᛏᚱᚢᚱ ᚦᛖᚲ
ᚹᛁᚦ ᛏᚱᚢᚢᛞ ᚨ ᛚᚨᚢᚠᛖᛁ
Translated into a contemporary scenario:
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey….
Runi trúr þek…
víssud (víst) vera
Possible transfer: 1
That’s when you disappear…
Loffy, whom we trust, knows…
Of course, the way
So this is just one of the possible translations. There are many missing passages, there are conjugations and inflections that could change the word combinations, but after hours of observation I am sure it is close. Warning: if it says “disappear”, the word is truncated, other words might be “ek….maybe, but “disappear” seemed the most logical to me. 2
There were a few strange things about the track that I mentioned at the beginning. First, the word “sideways” means “betray” and the word “half” means “deceive.” I can’t find a source that supports this meaning; however, betrayal seems odd given the passage I translated in the second part. It seems more likely to me that Kratos’ death was fake, i.e., a deception based on the giants telling them to trust Lafius/Kratos.
There is one word that the half-breed could not translate, ᛏᛜᚾᛞᛁᚾᚾ or tŋndinn. I have contacted some experts and hope to have a better idea of what the word might be when they answer, but it could be another name for Odin himself. One or ᛟᛞᛁᚾᚾ doesn’t seem too different to me. 3
Another possibility, and this one may be a bit of an exaggeration, is that tŋnðinn is an identifier (compound term) for “Tyre, son of Odin.” I say it is a bit far-fetched because the middle part, ŋn, does not resemble a word for son, burr/sonr/nir.
Another strange word is “financial.” It can mean “found,” but also “done.”
Then there is a passage:
Mount Trunarra Bloor Foundation Tngndina Ehrendi
Blood of the gods, blood of the fathers, trust in Tyre, mission accomplished.
Blood of the gods, blood of the fathers, with faith* in Tyre, the mission is found.
Trunar means “loyalty/royalty” in Icelandic.
Funny, but trúnar also has another meaning. Divided into trú naðr it can mean trust in the serpent. tŋnðinn probably does not refer to Jormungandr/Midgardsommr, although the names are quite different.
If this is the case, it would be confirmed by the fact that Riesen uses a similar adjective for Tyr and Laufey/Kratos, trunaðr/trúr.
- The Bjornstad Viking Dictionary – from English to Old Norse – is not the only source I used for words, but it was the most comprehensive.
- Old Norwegian Online (utexas.edu) – some information on grammar, conjugation, inflection.
- Fundinn – Nordic Names Wiki – origin of the name, meaning and statistics is the source of another label for Odin.
Edit 1: For some reason, the words after my post were put in quotation marks, so it’s fixed.
2020 will satisfy both classic and modern players. To be included in the list, a game must be confirmed for 2020, or there must be a good reason to expect its release this year. Upcoming games with a simple announcement and no significant release date are therefore not included in the list.
By 2020, there will be a lot of… In the world of video games. Here are fifteen games we’re looking forward to in the first half of 2020.
Frequently asked questions
What was that mural at the end of the war?
At the end of the war, players find a fresco in a temple built by the giants of northern mythology before they leave the kingdom of Midgard. The fresco of Jotunheim shows the past, present and future of the nine kingdoms.
Is there any news from the God of War in Jotunheim?
In 2018, there were nine kingdoms in God of War, but only six of them are available: Midgard, Alfheim, Helheim, Jotunheim, Musselheim and Nilfheim.
Moreover, Kratos in Tyre-with all his memories of the future-would explain why the Vault of Tyre contains a tablet with a hidden message that only Tyre and Mimir can see. A final interesting point about Tyre is that, although he is the northern god of war, he is considered a peace broker.
