Located as far northeast as the player can travel, the Old World Script can be found in Roanoke Ridge and is one of the easiest points of interest to find. Veering off the path north of Annesburg, the player can find a rather large rock amongst the shrubbery.
The rock (known as a runestone) is engraved with runic letters/symbols in the middle, and also consists of an engraved serpent which surrounds the text in the middle; the serpent also bears the runic symbols. The script is written in Old Norse, and is obviously a reference to Vikings. The following script in the middle translates to the following: "We arrived by boat. Beautiful land, gracious people. So we left them to live in peace".
- Just like the Old Tomb, the Old World Scripts is based off of the fact that Norsemen (Vikings) from Scandinavia were able to reach the Americas (specifically Canada) during their travels and expeditions of Iceland and Greenland in the 10th century AD, about half a millennium before Christopher Columbus reached the continent in 1492. That being said, however, they are not believed to have ever traveled or colonized as far south and west as where Red Dead Redemption 2 is set.
