2273643087SolipsismI see an abyss. Small and distant shapes. I'm walking in your nascent memories. Flickering motes. I sense… curiosity. You've always pondered, from the very beginning. As did we. I see tessellation. The pulsating hum of cosmic structure; a kaleidoscopic s…
141134282Promised Victory Bond—-Warlock, you need not resist. You have died countless deaths; you have been reborn in equal measure. You comprehend the final shape as were a death sentence… to liken it to death is an underestimation, an incorrect and assumptive simplification. Somet…
266021826StoicismI'm not one to navel-gaze; that is better suited to the mystics and so-called philosophers who are ill at ease with the quiet absence of war. No offense to the late "Speaker" of our fair city, but I have come to view any person with big ideas with suspicio…
1140861969Promised Reunion Mark—-Titan, O Titan. Your Traveler betrayed you just as it betrayed us. We do not pity you; we mourn with you. We wail alongside you at the graves of your beloved son and your treasured partner. We hold you in our arms and bear the weight of your sorrows, for…
2809120022RelativismYou were the first wanderer. Navigator. Searching for an answer to a question you've yet to ponder. I am the watcher. Invisible. The eyes of the Last City. The very nature of my duty necessitates solitude. We were both adrift. Along the brinks of spac…
87946917Promised Reign Cloak—-Inside you, the Kestrel and the Crow tangle in a bid for dominance. Hunter, you are ensnared, but you need not fear. We come to pry the trap open. We free you from your gilded prison; a cell bathed in light and glowing as if it would somehow fill the vas…
3284383335EuphonyThe following text was found recessed into a stone wall within the Pale Heart. Translation protocol has done its best to equate the text to a modern language transcription, with nominal confidence. Words or phrases with <85% translation confidence withi…
1961468307Turmoil Engine|| It abandoned us! Left us without meaning. [[ We will find it. Make meaning out of nothing. Create it. ]] // You're chasing something that doesn't want to be found. We're truly cursed, bereft in spirit without the abstract construction of "purpose"…
2558580315Timeless BondLately I've been thinking a lot about our adventures, our friends… You. Being your Ghost came with a feeling of being close to invulnerable—an unstoppable force. Okay, maybe not so much in the beginning, but we figured it out as we went along. And watchi…
1883196292I. Impact! IMPACT AFT FUSELAGE ! The alert roused Failsafe from power-saving mode. She reflexively brought the lights up to full, engaged the warning system, and sent a request for complete Exodus Black system information. "Generating status report, Captain," s…
2768261708Foreword// VanNet—Secure-00 // SYMMETRY_STATUS_REVIEW_07.017831 // I. Rey The Symmetry: a faction considered a dangerous fringe group at the time of Ulan-Tan's life. While he and the Symmetrists seem more likely now than before to have comprehended some essentia…
2768261711SymmetryExcerpt from a VanNet letter to Ikora Rey, sender multiply anonymized over relays: … the Symmetrists even still are viewed as something from the edges of society. City regulations hold that our philosophies are dangerous to permit, though Guardians in…
2768261710OmnivorousYou might say, now Drifter, what do you know about Light and Dark? You've been around this old galaxy and back again. You gotta have some wisdom you can put into simple words for a Guardian who just wants to get to punching. Maybe… maybe. You'll owe me a…
2768261705Transformations of MatterWould that I had more texts from the philosophers of Riis! But time is limited in the frenzy of an evacuation, and so, too, is space: data itself is not negligible. The first to go is that without practical value—or should I say, immediate practical val…
2768261704PreservationFor some Eliksni, Darkness is no material thing, no crashing wave or vicious force to struggle against. It is an impulse, an urge to do that which serves you best and discard all the rest. I recognize this well. It was an opinion I shared for much time.…
2768261707Old Friend, BelovedHere is a sorrowful book. Read it well. Once more, for understanding. The oceans of Fundament. The translucent waves reflect the surface. Dip your hand, and it comes up trailing liquid clear as glass. Dive deep, and the weight of it mounts upon itself…
2768261706Empty-HandedAs a Ghost—even Savathûn's Ghost, yeah, yeah—I think I have a little more authority to speak on Light than some of you chuckleheads. You want an opinion, you got it. Listen, it's pretty clear by now that whatever's evil is what you Humans happen to be f…
2768261701Cacosmia[Report by VanNet encrypted router] [A-Mahal//Link: C-Yong] [Mail-Archive//0071292//excerpted] … Where there is smoke, there is fire, they say. The sign of a thing does not come to pass without the thing that made it. Footsteps require a being walkin…
2768261700CollectiveFrom the writings of Ulan-Tan, recovered after his death: … It is because Light and Darkness are connected that great sacrifice was required of the Traveler: that which was once in balance was no longer, and to equal Darkness with its Light would take mo…
193039764Bird in the HandI'm the last guy you'd accuse of being on the straight and narrow, right? Right. I mean, come on, look at me. Hunters aren't exactly the noble knights of the Guardian world. Look. I'm not a square. That's Zavala's job. I'll break all the rules that I sh…
4240927295HE WAKESI see the world for the first time. This world. It is lovely. It will be lovelier when we are together. That is my first thought, and it is both question and desire. When "we" are together? I do not know who you are. But when we are together, I will have…
4240927292SHE RISESYou are clean, white bones, washed up on a forgotten shore. Three ribs, six knuckles, two femurs, and a sacrum. The bone is porous and old. Empty of marrow. You were not laid to rest. Was there anyone to mourn you? I can't know. But you are caught between…
4240927293HE SEESMy Ghost, my shadow, my self. You didn't lead me here. You didn't say, "I have something to show you," and trek me across the world to see it. You just said, "let's go," and I went with you. Why? Because the world was new in my reborn eyes, and I wanted…
