Haters are going to hate.
Praisers are going to praise.
The Bungie Forums are what keeps my mind sharp and my fingers active, between writing my own movie scripts, drawing, and studying industrial design. At the moment I'm working on miniatures for a short movie that I'll hopefully be able to film once I've saved up for a camera... That's me, with the mug, trying to have a conversation with Konoko.
Intent:This thread is dedicated to The Traveler. Here we store all the information we can find on it and discuss what we've found.
What we've got:
Picture of The Traveler, far (concept art/proof of concept).
Dead Orbit (official logo/possible connection).
First known sighting (Halo 3: Orbital Drop Shock Trooper) ~ Misriah Solutions
"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." ~ Source
Bungie has confirmed to Kotaku that the document and some of the art is genuine, and is somewhat representative of the game. ~ Kotaku/Source
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 planetoid is called "The Traveler"?
What is it capable of in terms of combat, offensive/defensive?
Note: the above questions might already be solved.
Will update when new information is available.
In order to avoid confusion and make the discussion on the subject more efficient, I hope to make this a sibling 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 proficient threads on what might be core elements of Destiny? Hope you don't mind:
The Traveler: DESTINY - The Traveler ~ Janaka
The Legged Tank: Let's have a chat about Walking Tanks ~ Hylebos
Joyeuse: The Joyeuse IP Formula ~ Cortana 5
Geography: My God, It's Full of Stars - The Destiny Map ~ SonicJohn
The Last City on Earth: Needs thread...
The Grey Hovering Orb: Needs thread?
The Leak: Whoa, what just happened? ~ SonOfTheShire
The Traveler, what is its purpose, what are your theories, found something notable, or do you have an important questions to add?
As I see it, this could very well be the Mendicant Bias of the series.
