Touch of Malice

Touch of Malice

Exotic Weapons

Your actions reverberate through the Darkness. I can hear it howl. I can hear its pain. Oryx is undone, truly. Finally, the Ascendant Realm is quiet, and the Hive are now without a King. Only you, Guardian. Only you could have done such as this.

We have found the powerful relics of which Toland’s Journal speaks of, relics taken from the Ascendant Hive, the Blade of Famine, the Shroud of Ir Anuk and most importantly the Ravenous Heart from Oryx himself. The relics contain the secrets of the Hive, their darkest power, their oldest Hunger, components to be assembled, components that will forge a weapon that can turn the Hive’s deathly maw upon itself.

Dare we build such a weapon, a weapon bound to malice, a weapon that will have consequence. Remember guardians, the Hive had choice, and now so do we.

Welcome back Guardians, today we are going to discuss the lore surrounding the exotic scout rifle, “Touch of Malice”, we will talk about the significance of calcified fragments, how Oryx lives on through the weapon and lastly why Eris decide to create Touch of Malice for Guardians. This is myelin games and I hope you enjoy this latest Destiny Lore episode.

What are the Weapons of Sorrow?

Exotic weapon lore

Weapons of Sorrow

Is your Light bright enough to stand, even briefly, in full gaze of the Hive’s abyss? Can it handle what has died and been reborn in those shadows?

Welcome back Guardians, in today’s Destiny Lore episode we are covering the Weapons of Sorrow. I will be focusing on what defines a Weapon of Sorrow and which weapons are true Weapons of Sorrow.

Please be sure to check out the podcast by the guys over at Focused Fire Chat, as they have a two-hour episode on the Weapons of Sorrow. I was hoping to come up with some different theories than the guys over at Focused Fire however I couldn’t fault their coverage, so be sure to check them out. Also, if you are looking for more Destiny lore pod casts be sure to check out Destiny Lorecast, AnonPig is on that team and the link is in the description.

SIVA Gjallarhorn

Exotic weapon

Gjallarhorn

It is time we let the past guide our future. Lord Saladin has asked me to help you forge a mighty weapon. A powerful new Gjallarhorn for a new generation of Iron Lords. Know that when Gjallarhorn is mounted upon your shoulders the Wolfpack of fallen guardians stand at your side, when gjallarhorn howls, the Wolfpack will answer.

Welcome back guardians, today we are diving into the new Gjallarhorn quest line and extracting all the new lore delivered in game. Remember now that there are two versions of Gjallarhorn that exist, the original and the newly SIVA crafted version in Rise of Iron.

To write this script I called in some backup from the Lore masters over at Focus Fire Chat and Destiny lore cast, links to their podcasts are in the description. Also, I cannot take credit for that intro, the last sentence about the Gjallarhorn howling and the Wolf Pack will answering. was taken from Reddit and is one of my favourite non-cannon quotes, thanks to Foshkey for his post. All my social links are in the description and if you are watching this within 2 hours of release, I will be on Twitch right now.

This is myelin games and I hope you enjoy this latest Destiny lore episode.

First Curse became Thorn?

Exotic weapon

First Curse

Tex Mechanica’s been making guns since before the City’s Walls went up. You got no idea what it was like before the City. Before the Walls. That’s the world for which Tex Mechanica was making weapons. You’ve heard of The Last Word. But have you heard of the gun that came before it? The Last Word…and the First Curse. Sisters. Partners. But one was lost to fire—and with it, the memory of how to forge it. It’s strange, though. Strange to think that two sisters could grow so far apart.

Welcome back guardians. Today we are discussing the First Curse Thorn theory, i.e. First Curse was Dredgen Yor’s original hand cannon that eventually transformed into Thorn. I Obviously I will discuss all the evidence that links First Curse with Thorn but also address major rebuttals, like, “Isn’t Rose the precursor hand cannon to Thorn?”

The artwork at the beginning of this video was provided by Brandon McCamey, a link to his website is in the description. Please support the people who support me.

Also, I had a detailed discussion with Captain Kex about this topic and I highly recommend checking out his LORG chart, he has basically visually represented all of the grimoire cards in destiny, showing their connections with each other. An excellent resource for any lore seeker, link is in the description. Also, a big thank you to the guys at Destiny LoreCast, an excellent podcast solely dedicated to the lore of Destiny, they shared the show notes which featured Betacheiftan, which had a huge amount of lore on this topic. Link to their podcast is also in the description.

As per usual, my twitter, twitch and own podcast links are below, this is myelin games and I hope you enjoy this latest destiny lore episode.

Toland’s Bad Juju

Exotic weapon lore

Bad Juju

Toland obsessed over the power of the Traveler- and the secrets of the darkness. His quest took him into enemy strongholds through the Inner solar system. Scattered fragments of his Journal can be reassembled to reveal the schematic for Bad Juju… however whenever you hold the weapon, your Ghost begins to look… delicious.

Welcome back guardians, today we are discussing the exotic pulse rifle, Bad Juju. This video was co-written with AnonPig. We will discuss the general lore surrounding Bad Juju, starting with the appearance of the weapon, the lore from the exotic quest line itself and then end with the theory that Bad Juju was Toland’s failed attempt to create the Touch of Malice.

As usual the artwork has been provided by Brandon McCammey. Please show you support by visiting his webpage and/or youtube channel.

Exotic primary weapons

Weapon ornaments

Part 1 – Primary exotic weapons

Some legends live forever. Others are overwritten – reshaped by the sheer will of those who believe that any ordeal can be conquered, any foe vanquished, any god cast down.

Welcome back guardians, in the recent Age of Triumph, Weekly Rituals Bungie livestream, 7 new exotic weapon ornaments were revealed… well sort of. I thought that this would be a great time to cover all the Lore surrounding weapon ornaments. This video is Part 1 of a two-part series. This video will just cover all exotic primary weapons that have an ornament. I will provide brief description of the weapon lore (which sometimes is a lot of information, and other times very little) and then I can explain the significance of the ornament (which sometimes is very significant and other times almost insignificant). Part Two will cover special weapons and heavy weapons and if you would like a part three that covers all remaining exotic weapons (i.e. weapons that do not have ornaments), I will gladly do that too. Be sure to show your support on this video.

I am also going to mention some bonus Lore that I spotted during the livestream, the ships, “Needle and Thread” and also the ship “Order Theory”, which I will mention very shortly. To help you navigate this video I will leave a contents page on screen now and in the description, so you can see the time when I speak about each exotic weapon and you can skip ahead to your favourite exotic weapon if you like. This is myelin games and I hope you enjoy this latest destiny lore episode.
