What is the shape of your knife?

Just a fun thread with a bit of lore mixed in. The taken grimoire cards feature what I assume is the darkness itself talking to the poor souls taken by Oryx. It talks to them, understands them and offers them a special knife, so that they might become more than they currently are. Remember that the knife is not something you desire, it is something that betters you, makes you whole. I'm gonna do an all out grimoire style but you can just post the shape if you want. [quote]You are Subtlespartan. Though you speak and move like the others your mind is green in a sea of blue. Your stretch to understand things beyond your mortal coil. You have been taken. Put your mind at rest. There are no questions here, only truth. All colours and shades are present and understood. What knowledge do you seek? What thoughts burn at your conscience? You seek to help others. To guide them to the truth and teach them to see it as it is. But they do not follow. You hold out your hand in offering and they turn away from you. They do not understand. You must have their trust. There is a knife for you. It is shaped like [I am your friend]. Take up the knife. Trust in its truth. Take your new shape.[/quote] The knife can be as deep or as trivial as you want, just be sure to make it sound cool.

  • You are DerKungFuhrer. Though you have trained to fight Kung Fury and Jew Jitsu all your life, you long for an end to the fight. You have been taken. Put your mind at rest. There are no opponents here, only truth. All martial artists are subvert and aryan. What art do you seek? What war plans burn at your conscience? You seek to cleanse the people of the world. You wish to make them pure and right through hand to hand combat. But they do not bend. You show them the flaws of the others, but they would still oppose your will. They do not understand. You must have their support. There is a knife for you. It is shaped like [showers at camp]. Take up the knife. Clear the way into the future. Take your new shape. [spoiler]No I'm not a nązi, I'm just a fan of Kung Fury.[/spoiler]

    Thought I'd do something different and do some for the Vanguard. *ahem* Grimoire: Zavala, Hammer of Oryx. You are Commander Zavala. A Vanguard of the City. Iron-strong pillar of the Tower. Veteran of the Battle of Twilight Gap. Mentor to so many and beacon of authority. You have been taken. Put down your weapons. Lower your Fist. Pull down your Ward. There is nothing to fight here. You have been at the helm of duty for so long. How many strategies have you weighed? How many sleepless nights have you spent mulling over possible threats, probable and improbable? Was your unyielding resolve worth it? The City prospers, the Guardians grow in strength, and yet you still have a sharp seed of doubt; constant vigilance is the price you pay. There is a knife for you. It is shaped like [certainty]. Take it. You will no longer worry. You need not constantly scrutinize every corner of a map to tease out some hidden threat. Take up the knife. Be sure of yourself. Take your new shape. ****************** Next up is Cayde-6.

    [quote]You are KAGEHOSHI. A long-dead machine of war reforged by the Traveler to spread lies and hope. A warlock: warrior scholar in practice of the arcane. You use knowledge and theory with great and terrible application. You are strong, and even the ascendant fall before your might. Strength is not enough; you seek the forbidden truths. You have been taken. Cease your endless curiosity. Let your weary mind take comfort. The secrets of the Deep are one with you now. What passions drives your mind? To what great works will your knowledge be utilized? In curiosity you trespass into my realm to scavenge my fragmented books. You learned of my grand works, the final shape, and thousands fall to your light as you make yourself sharp through the sword logic. You've studied worm larvae while hiding from your allies — seeking knowledge of the eleven axioms of the ascendant realms, and to take the power of ontology from the deep. The light limits your might; you cannot grow sharper. Secrets elude your grasp, but you've learned enough to know it is Darkness, the Deep, that is the final shape. You must reject the light, and through your will you shall force reality into the shape of your truth. There is a knife for you. It is shaped like [[b]geometer[/b]]. Take up the knife. Cut out enemies from space itself. Take your new shape.[/quote] "Geometer" Ability: I focus my gaze at one area at a time. Enemies in the targeted gaze zone become temporarily "torn between dimensions," and then are gradually removed from existence if they do not get out of the gaze zone in time. After a few seconds of focusing my gaze at one spot, Taken are pulled into existence there

    • You were called John, once. You've saved countless lives, defeated insurmountable odds more times than you can count; You've crushed your enemies under your heel again and again. You have lost countless friends along the way... You have been taken. Why do you protect them? They are weak, and undeserving of your aid. Such strength you exibit, and what do you receive in return? Praise and trinkets from the unworthy. Lay down your weapons, Spartan. Come find eternal peace in my embrace. There is a knife for you. It is shaped like [Blissful Amnesia]. Take up the knife, Master Chief, and finish the fight...

A storm cloud, gently showering diamonds upon you. You're in a dream. Or are you? -Crews: (Screaming) YOU'RE NOT. YOU'RE TAKEN. AND YOU DON'T NEED A KNIFE. YOU NEED A BODYWASH THAT GIVES YOU [b]POWERRRRRR[/b]. -Mustafa: Get off of my shoulders. *one arms Crews through a window* -Mustafa: Now where were we..oh him? Don't mind him.

          You are (redacted).The rose. Inspiration to many, hero to all. A light shining in the darkest abyss. You have been taken. Be still, fight no more. Your time of hollow fame and glory are over. No more will the people the city look in awe at (redacted). What turned you down this dark path? What caused you question the light that brought you to be? Doubt. Doubt slithered in, stealthier than any hunter. You kill, you kill every thing in your way, every creature that dared oppose you. But it was not enough. Every one you kill ten grow in its place, so you questioned, questioned the light itself. You must question no more. You must understand. There is a knife for you. It is shaped like. [smite the light]. Take it. Give into the abyss. Destroy what you once fought for.

Your efforts laid to waste by the rewards of your work, in the face of the light and the darkness. Rest now, you have been taken. Take this knife, it is shaped like [peace].

              You are Variable55. Conquerer of Atheon, Vanquisher of Crota, Capturer of Skolas, and Banisher of Oryx. You spend your time solely following one path, the path of the light. You have been taken. Activate your mind. Look into it. There is more than just the light. What knowledge do you seek? What thoughts burn at your conscience? You seek to save the world. To make everything as it should be. You want to do what is right, and what is right is what is good. But that is not always the case. You must see the threads. There is a knife for you. It is shaped like [many forms]. Take up the knife. Trust in its change. Take your new shape. Edit: Funny one. You are John Cena. Take up the knife. It is shaped like [JOHN CENAAAAAAA!!!!!!] Take your new shape.

There is no mutiny or navy here, everything works as one. What drives your plunder. What brings you to ravage the oceans? Freedom. The freedom to travel the world as you please, in search of treasure and adventure. The freedom to break the shackles of society and escape reality. This freedom needs a catalyst. There is a knife for you. It is shaped like [Why is the rum gone?] Take up the knife. Drink deep of it. Take your new shape.

                  This is my Hunter's: [quote]You are crazycruses, he who slayed Atheon, Crota, and Skolas. You have been taken. Do not try to resist, your light is already gone, given to others to feast upon. There is no need to fear here. Why do you charge headfirst into battle recklessly? Perhaps to keep your fire team safe, or perhaps you do not fear death, as you have conquered it many times. But you feel fear anyway. You fear for those around you, fearing that they will die a painful death, this is what has happened. Do not distress yourself, feed off of their sacrifice, become stronger. There is a knife for you. It is shaped like [no fear]. Take up the knife. Fear no more. Take your new shape.[/quote] I'm proud of this. Excited to see others.
