    1. What is an Urn?:
    	
    	An urn is an obtainable item, via hidden chests found throughout 
    	God of War II, that give you special powers on a bonus playthrough
    	of the game on the same difficulty.

    2. Locations:
    
    	a. Urn of Gaia - this urn is found on the first level of the game, The 
    			Rhodes. In the puzzle room with a button on one side
    			of the door, then the door, and finally a button on
    			the other side of the door. Within that room, there's
    			a block underneath a statue bird. Break the bird and
    			push the block to the button so Kratos is facing and 
    			standing on the button; and the block is between you 
    			and the door. Once the button is pushed down, the 
    			door should be open. Charge up your kick so Kratos can 
    			kick the block into the next room. From there, make
    			sure the door is open all of the way and evade underneath 
    			the door using the right analog stick. Kratos should 
    			do a roll. Now at this point, push the block to the 
    			furthest point to the right. Now, simply jump atop the 
    			block and jump onto the ledge with three chests. Grab
    			your well-earned treasures.
    				
    
    	b. Urn of Gorgons - Once you recieve the Golden Fleece from the cerebus
    			outside of Eurayles Temple. Backtrack to the conveyor
    			belt right after the giant spinning wheel. On the conveyor,
    			there are stoning gazes coming out of the wall. (The 
    			gaze that turns you to stone.) Use your Golden Fleece 
    			on all of the gazes to break the wall revealing
    			treasures. Including the Urn of Gorgons.
    			
    
    	c. Urn of Olympus - After you obtain the Spear of Destiny, grab the
    			Statue of Fate (time slowing); and push it down the 
    			stairs. From there, push it to the edge of the water 
    			from the pathway you came. After you've done that, 
    			get to the other side of the path by running and 
    			swimming through the water. Once you are on the other
    			side, slow time (L1 + R1), but make sure you're in a
    			straight line from the statue so you can activate
    			the slowing of the time. Once the time is slowed, 
    			hurry up and backtrack to the large button floor, 
    			cross the water that is in the way by grappling it 
    			using R1. Once you are to the button floor, head 
    			through the door and gather your treasures, of that 
    			including the Urn of Olympus.
    			
    
    	d. Urn of Prometheus - When in Atlas, after the room with the flaming 
    			minotaur. You should be inside a room with a bunch
    			of hornets. To begin with, attack and destroy the nests
    			first, then take care of the hornets. From there, 
    			Spread your Icarus Wings above the vent allowing you to
    			reach the wall. Destroy the first spike that comes down
    			when you're on the ceiling. (This one isn't actually
    			blocking your way.) Anyways, destroy it and head into the
    			hole to obtain your well-earned red orbs and your 
    			newly gained Urn of Prometheus.
    
    	e. Urn of Fates - Unlock Challenge of the Titans by beating the game
    			on any difficulty, then from there, beat CotT with 
    			a ranking of Mortal or better to recieve the Urn of Fates.
    
    	f. Urn of Poseidon - Unlock Challenge of the Titans by beating the game
    			on any difficulty, then from there, beat CotT with 
    			a ranking of Spartan or better to recieve the Urn 
    			of Poseidon.

    3. Powers:
    	
    	a. Urn of Gaia - For each one orb Kratos gains, it's worth 10 times
    			its normal value. Maximum number of red orbs 
    			is 999,999.
    
    	b. Urn of Gorgons - The strike of Kratos' weapons turns enemies
    			to stone.
    
    	c. Urn of Olympus - Gives Kratos infinite magic power.
    
    	d. Urn of Prometheus - When activated, Kratos has infinite Rage of 
    			the Titans.
    
    	e. Urn of Fates - Extends the time of your combo meter by three seconds 
    			allowing you to get bigger combos.
    
    	f. Urn of Poseidon - Allows you to exchange your Chrono's Rage magic
    			with the magic: Poseidon's Rage from the first 
    			game: God of War I.
