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.
