I propose an allegiance - DESTINY - The Traveler:

[quote]Intent:[/quote]This thread is dedicated to [i][b]The Traveler[/i][/b]. Here we store all the information we can find on it and discuss what we've found. [quote]What we've got:[/quote] [url=http://oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/stg.ign.com/2012/11/51.jpg]Picture of The Traveler[/url], [url=http://oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/stg.ign.com/2012/11/61.jpg]far[/url] (concept art/proof of concept). [url=http://i439.photobucket.com/albums/qq112/Citrus-limon/DeadOrbit.jpg]Dead Orbit[/url] (official logo/possible connection). [url=http://misriahsolutions.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/destiny_awaits.jpg]First known sighting[/url] (Halo 3: Orbital Drop Shock Trooper) ~ [b]Misriah Solutions[/b] [i]"A massive, mysterious alien ship hangs overhead like a second Moon. No one knows where it came from or what it's here for, but only that it's our protector."[/i] ~ [url=http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/186ndtmch5it3jpg/original.jpg]Source[/url] [b][i]Bungie has confirmed to Kotaku that the document and some of the art is genuine, and is somewhat representative of the game.[/i][/b] ~ [url=http://kotaku.com/5963807/story-details--art-leak-from-bungies-next-game-the-sci+fi-epic-destiny]Kotaku/Source[/url] Questions: How do they know it is their protector? Is it a bit worn out, or is that just the art being indistinct? Where does it state that the [i]planetoid[/i] is called [i]"The Traveler"[/i]? What is it capable of in terms of combat, offensive/defensive? [b]Note:[/b] the above questions might already be solved. Will update when new information is available. [quote]The Allegiance:[/quote] In order to avoid confusion and make the discussion on the subject more efficient, I hope to make this a [i]sibling[/i] to some of the other Destiny related threads. I've taken the freedom to suggest who might be willing enter this allegiance by linking some of the more [i]proficient[/i] threads on what might be core elements of Destiny? Hope you don't mind: [quote] [b]The Traveler:[/b] [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=76120271]DESTINY - The Traveler[/url] ~ [b]Janaka[/b] [b]The [i]Legged Tank[/i]:[/b] [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=76091026] Let's have a chat about Walking Tanks[/url] ~ [b]Hylebos[/b] [b]Joyeuse:[/b] [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=70585296]The Joyeuse IP Formula[/url] ~ [b]Cortana 5[/b] [b]Geography:[/b] [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=68213981]My God, It's Full of Stars - The Destiny Map[/url] ~ [b]SonicJohn[/b] [b]The Last City on Earth:[/b] Needs thread...

As I see it, this could very well be the Mendicant Bias of the series. [Edited on 12.03.2012 1:23 AM PST]

  • Vey cool. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] the real Janaka Having looked at the pictures of the Traveler for far too long, an idea began to root itself deep in my mind. As we can see from the mid distance picture portraying the Great Sphere, it looks like its interior is made up of many grey metal rings that each have the geometry of a spine. It's like a curled up skeleton within a partially cracked egg with a hexagonal surface. Wouldn't it be a marvel if they all spinned like clockwork, like a cluster of Halos intertwining? Here, I spent the last hour drawing: [url=http://i439.photobucket.com/albums/qq112/Citrus-limon/TheTraveler-interior.jpg]Interior[/url]. It ended up being more Giger[i]ish[/i] than I wanted though.. How do you think it looks inside, what is inside?[/quote]

  • I propose that the traveler disrupts whatever the aliens use to get around, thus protecting the last city. It is the Shield of the Earth, and we are the Sword. Dead Orbit shall remain when others fall!

  • Okay after reading some of the data, it looks like its a cooperative multiplayer game, that is massively multiplayer. Multiple player playing on one server, pushing one campaign forward.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] burritosenior[/quote]Curls up into a ball in honor of its roundness, and also to show how feeble I am in comparison to its spendor, and size.. Clearly New Monarchy or one of the other factions are fanatical growers of tamatoes or something, and the Great Sphere has put their patches in a seemingly perpetual state of shade...
