Earlier this week we told you about Claire Manning, a Melbourne gamer with a background in archaeology. She discovered the crumbs of a message in the hieroglyphs of an Assassin’s Creed: Origins ad, and now she’s finished translating the whole message.

Before we go further, here’s the original image that popped up at Melbourne Central:

After decoding a few words, Manning reasoned that the message would likely be about the beginnings of the Assassin brotherhood. And after decoding the full picture, that’s more or less what it turned out to be:

If you can’t read the full image, for whatever reason, here’s the translated text:

Amun protect us. I give you offerings. May you travel the limits, justified. May you consider what is beneath you to have value.

Nothing is true. Everything is possible.
