General Article: Skull Cartouche Contest

By Jon Wood on June 10, 2009


As the Managing Editor of an MMORPG website, I tend to get a lot of interesting mail. So much so, in fact, that I’m fairly certain there’s a lengthy file on me somewhere at the Canadian customs offices. Still, it always gets my attention when a human skull finds its way to my front door, which is exactly what happened the day after my wife and I returned from our recent honeymoon.

This wasn’t just any old human skull; that would be too easy. No, this skull was wrapped in mummy linens that gave way to reveal a seven symbol cartouche.

It turns out that the skull was sent by our friends at Mythic Entertainment and the cartouche is a puzzle for players, left by the Tomb Kings for you all to decipher.

“WAR fans can take this code to the Mythic Account Center and enter it into their account,” said the accompanying letter. “Once activated, players will receive a unique Scarab Amulet reward. This fun item summons a Scarab swarm that chitters and swirls around a player’s character.”

It turns out that this unique cartouche will only unlock 1,000 amulets (on North American servers only, I’m afraid), so hurry and get that cartouche translated.
