Ever wonder whats behind those wonderful doors Bungie put in Destiny? [UPDATED AGAIN]

[i][b]Every door is meant to be opened, some require a little more force. [/b][/i] [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIL6eHxHjuc&list=UUNzEGvqd_xFrovOFC8UMssg]Breaking Barriers[/url] I got a treat for you guys, me and my friends, [url=http://www.bungie.net/en/Profile/254/4875062]Tekknus[/url] and [url=http://www.bungie.net/en/Profile/254/262088]Ectso[/url] found a way into every area that bungie had blocked off in the beta, some are bare bones and some have hidden secrets and gems, I recommend not watching the last 6 minutes unless you don't mind spoilers. In order the areas go by: Kings watch. Jovian/Jupiter complex. Seraphim vault.

[u][b]'Van Helsing'[/b][/u] [b][i]"Omg dude I just did some research. So Durandal is an AI from Marathon Cortana is the AI from Halo And the next one is Joyeuse Joyeuse is the name of Charlemagne's personal sword.. Charlemagne's Vault = Warmind = Joyeuse Omg so many chills down my spine."[/i][/b] I'm pretty sure Rasputin is going to be that rouge A.I. Centuries of contemplation, isolation and crazy alien invaders may of jacked with his psyche. Not to mention the node translations in the last warmind. [u][b]zellatron[/b][/u] [b][i]Oh and there's also this little nugget: "One of Marduk's greatest tales was when he defeated Tiamat and reclaimed the "Tablet of... (you guessed it) Destiny". The Tablet of Destiny could tell the future and whoever held it ruled the universe.' "[/i][/b] He has alot more info, had a thread on it too, but the gist of it is that this game ties directly into Egyptian and Babylonian lore, which it does and to add onto it that would also explain the fifth race concept art which depicts giant floating obelisks in the shape of pyramids. Coincidentally in the hidden areas the Hive write on obsidian slabs and in weird hieroglyphics. [u][b]Boomshack[/b][/u] [b][i]"The things I've found: The symbol for destiny and the guy hanging look exactly alike. I was looking for destiny conspiracies and I accidently happened open the spear of destiny which was a spear used to spear jesus and I found a picture and the guy hanging is in the same EXACT position as jesus in the picture being stabbed by the spear of destiny. There is another slide where it is very fuzzy and its brief but in the top right corner where the big white square is that kinda looks like this #. From far away this white square says H I E. The giant green square that takes up most of the page also is letters and it ALSO spells out H I E from far away. Behind the green H I E there is more letters or numbers but they are very hard to see and in the right side and middle of the screen there is a face with eyes and a mouth which is also very hard to see you have to squint. The next slide there is the upside down broken city with the words "somehow, the falling skies don't seem to matter anymore now that we are starside." I've found many post where bungie has said the words "see you starside" including here after every article (http://seventhcolumnblog.wordpress.com/) and also at the end of the halo reach credits. The next slide that comes up is the destiny symbol a bunch of code and underneath all of that is what I think is a map of something and I think the stuff around it is coordinates. The final slide shows a sheathed sword and at the hilt of the sword are the initials H C which must be the name of something. And lastly a guy in the comments translated the morse code and it says "take up your arms my brothers and embrace your destiny". Thanks for messaging me back tell me if I told you anything new or interesting"[/i][/b] This was related to the !lettingGo video and Good god this guy, a type of person we need more of, knows how to breakdown things. If ANYONE can help them decode every piece of this Video I would thank you eternally. [u][b]MaxAronAnderson[/b][/u] [i][b]Going to stick a spoiler tag on this, out of consideration for others. Just a speculative theory. [spoiler]Tried to post this several times but the reply box ceases to function properly if I type very much. So, I'm just going to say my idea briefly with not evidence and expect someone might be interested. EDIT: Fixed the reply box somehow, I can elaborate. From Destiny Wiki: "They remain ciphers, even to themselves; their origins and purpose lost to time. Whoever built the Exos fashioned them in humanity's image, gifting them with diversity of mind and body." Couple this from the line in "!lettinggo" here "I am the virgin queen from whom all was born." and also coupled with the image in the video of what appears to be half an exo hanging, must have a link. I suspect that Joyeuse is the creator of the exo, fashioning them in the image of humanity. However since the collapse, the darkness has manipulated Joyeuse and now Joyeuse seeks to destroy humanity. (I'm glancing over it briefly here.) This perhaps suggests that Joyeuse is not of a humanoid design. Perhaps similar to the sneak peak of Rasputin. Either way, Joyeuse is the antagonist for the story. I've ultimately been extremely brief, but I can't be bothered going through it too deeply as its just speculation. TL;DR. Joyeuse has some link to the creation and design of the exo, and as a result of the darkness and its rampancy, has a vendetta against humanity.[/spoiler][/b][/i] [i][b]Edit: Added links to important people videos[/b][/i]

  • As a medieval historian, I love the Carolingian lore and references to Charlemagne; Roland and Durendal are my favorites (hence my gamer tag), but I always wonder why? Why does Bungie do this; why these legends particularly?

  • Damnit people keep making threads about this before I'm done with mine! Whatever I'll just scrap it and piggyback onto yours. Look at Rasputin and then look at [url=http://www.williamhenry.net/gentle14.jpg]this[/url] picture of a Seraphim. Hmm... Rasputin looks like a Sraphim and is in the Seraphim vault... [spoiler]The Warminds are the Seven Seraphs[/spoiler] Either that or the faction acts as a Knights Templar sort of order that protects them. If that's the case then I bet the Exo Stranger we see in an early cutscene and also in some of the videos that have been released is a part of it. Now that leaves one Faction left undiscovered. Osiris. I have two ideas on this front. Either [spoiler]Rasputin does indeed go rampant and is [b][i]reborn[/i][/b] as Osiris[/spoiler] or [spoiler]Osiris is one of the seven Warminds[/spoiler] I think it is important to note that the ramblings of Rasputin that were translated are especially interesting to anyone who has read Childhoods End, a book that is known to have been an inspiration for the story of Destiny. I will not explain it all here, but please read the book and if anyone wants to talk about it then I'll be glad to discuss it. On the topic of Charlemagne and Joyeuse I think that Charlemagne is the Warmind and Joyeuse will be some sort of weapon or device crucial to the war against the Darkness. From Wikipedia: [quote]Joyeuse was allegedly lost in a battle and retrieved by one of the knights of Charlemagne[/quote] I believe our character will be the knight which acts out this legend. Lastly to tie in with us as knights and The Warminds as the Seven Seraphs reading a little bit about Judeo-Christian Cosmology reveals that there were seven Seraphs which guarded the throne of God. [quote] The seraphim cry continually to each other, "Holy, holy, holy, is YHWH of hosts: the whole earth is full of His glory."[/quote] This chant of thrice holy is known as The Trisagion. Making a bit of a leap because I'm tired of typing, [b]WE[/b] are the embodiment of The Trisagion. We are literally Guardian Angels, wielding the light of our God to protect humanity from The Darkness. I have more but too much of it was already discussed in previous threads or requires a lot more speculation that I don't think really means anything yet. Hope you've enjoyed this.

                  • Not sure if this tidbit had been passed over or what, but in the early 1900s Grigori Rasputin was a royal advisor to Russia's Tsar Nicholas II. He was also heavily involved in and considered an influence in the betrayal that led to the fall of the last Russian Tsar and his family. Coincidence? I think not.

                  • Alright, I've got another tidbit of info through the beta. Maybe you've seen this, but in the Grimoire, there a Ghost fragment talking about the arrival of the Darkness (I think) and the start of the Collapse. It reads, "Promote event to SKYSHOCK: OCP: EXTINCTION. Activate VOLUSPA. Activate YUGA. Cauterize public sources to SECURE ISIS and harden for defensive action." I've seen some on here speculating Osiris could be the name of another AI like Joyeuse, though I'm not sure of where they get this reference. But it reminded me of this Grimoire card. You can see it at Enemies>Darkness>Ghost Fragment:Darkness. Honestly I don't remember what ghost gave me this card, but the Isis part made me wonder if these may be three other AI's yet to be discovered. Any guesses?

                        I really don't want to start a new thread to detract from this one so I'll post here. These are some ties I found between Destiny and Babylonian myth. Bungie Concept Art "ASARU" http://i.imgur.com/uBtHOXD.jpg Asaru is one of the 50 names of Marduk (a Babylonian god) listed on "The SEVEN Tablets of Creation" by Leonard W. King in 1902. In fact, Marduk's SEVENTH name ASARULUDU. Which is described in this fashion: "He is truly the light of the gods, the mighty leader, who, as the protecting deities of gods and land, In fierce single combat saved our retreats in distress." And on the SEVENTH Tablet there are these names and descriptions: 10. ASARU - bestower of cultivation, who established water levels. Creator of grain and herbs, who causes vegetation to sprout. 11. ASARUALIM - who is honored in the place of counsel. To whom the gods hope when possessed with fear. 12. ASARUALIMNUNNA - the gracious light of the father Then there is the Marduk Prophecy: It is a text that describes the travels of the Marduk Idol. It pays visits to different lands and in every occasion except one, wherever the idol goes, it is good for that place. Apparently the Idol is from Babylon. It was never a problem for Babylon when it left before, but that one time it says the gods left Babylon with the Idol, leaving Babylon in famine.

                        • Had to add on to this joyeuse the sword of Charlemagne Before the Miholjanec legend had been regarded, the so-called sword of Attila in Vienna was known as the sword of Charlemagne. Also the sword of attila translates into the sword of mars which is where Charlemagne's vault is located. And many of you probably know bungie had named two A.I's after legendary swors such as the sowrd curtana the sword of mercy. Joyeuse is the sword of joy and was said to be locked away and grew some kind of hatred towards humanity. Anyways this is specualtion but i have a feeling that the ai that will be named joyeuse will be the key to waking the traveler and will start a new golden age(maybe) hints the sword of "joy"
