Game theory: How Destiny is the prequel of the Halo universe

[b]First of all, this is not a "Serious" theory, i just was in the tower looking at the Traveler and came up with a story that could connect both universes, just something funny to think about. The premise for this theory is the "Precursors" from Halo universe had the ability to "Accelerate" the evolution of intelligent life and where considered as "Guardians" of the galaxies.[/b] The precursors were a great empire, a healthy nation and outstanding explorers of the universe, untill they found a unexpected threat. This new enemy suddenly started to destroy their cities and colonize their planets, this enemy will be what we call "Darkness" in Destiny. As the war against this threat developed, Precursors noticed that they weren't enough to fight this army that was flooding their planets. So, in a desperate attemp of destroying this threat, they create a new kind of weapon, a biological weapon, one that could flood that enemy. They quickly created the bacteriums that eventually will evolve into this "Flood" new race, but they were just not enough precursors left to defend and incuvate it in time, so they created a gigantic incuvator, where this new life forms will have the time and proteccion to fully evolve into the new threat they need to confront their enemies. They send this incuvator through the space, with the orders of finding a new race that will serve as "Protection" in first place, while it incuvates the Flood, and as "Food" in second place. This thing finds humans, and they call it "The traveler". The traveler helps them to get the technology levels to be able to protect it and its cargo, which is not enough to avoid the Darkness to take over them and run them near to extinction, so the traveler creates the Guardians, beings that will use the power of the Precursors in order to defend it untill the flood is prepared. The humans will combat the Darkness, driving both sides in a war that will finish with the human side winning, or at least very close to it. By then, the flood will be completed, and it will start getting their first food from human beings. Scared and confused, the humans will start the scape from the flood, liderated by the guardians, who feel responsible by all this chaos they, somehow, permitted to happen. Humans will travel through the galaxy for centuries, untill they find the "Forerunners", and you know the rest of the story, the war the will happen will drive both sides to near extinction, because of the "Guardians" power and the Forerunners technology. [i]I'm not a die hard knower of the "Halo" lore, so anything that you know that could support or dismiss this theory, please share it with me, and have fun :)[/i]

  • To add to this theory (knowing that were just kinda of making this up) I would say the traveler was designed by the architects along with the rings of halo. Once the flood is released and destroys the darkness the rings would activate and wipe the universe clean. The AI's then would reseed the universe, possibly as the forerunners. Keep in mind the AI's would know all along what has happened and therefore may become corrupt or choose to act on their own ( guilty spark ) or others. Just throwing that out there.

    I love reading these cross game theories but honestly, halo has enough lore about its universe to where destiny just couldn't fit into the picture Also, in the halo universe, the precursors were beaten by their own creations (forerunners) because they chose humanity over the forerunners as their heirs. But you should read the forerunner books by Greg bear! They are so good

    • well what about this, When in halo reach you ran into a kill ball it would say "Killed by the GUARDIANS" so, you see where I'm going with this and in destiny when you experience a "Miss Adventure" it says "Killed by the Architects" relating possibly to the creators of the rings in halo. Or this could possibly mean that in the next series of games brought forth by Bungie we may be something called "Architects" But this is unsure as of right now, Just a theory. If you have any questions about this E-mail me at Romeolover8@gmail.com and tag Halo-Destiny
