The Traveler


The Traveler

Traveler.jpg
"Everything changed with the arrival of the Traveler. Long ago, it breathed new life into our system and began our Golden Age. But it did not last. Something hit us. Knocked us down. Tried to stamp us out. No one knows exactly what, but we do know this: Very few of us survived, and those who did owe their lives to the Traveler."



Background


The Traveler is a massive orb of unknown origin or function that hovers above the last settlement of humanity on Earth, known as the City. No one knows how or why it arrived, but its presence gave humans abilities which sparked their expansion into the solar system during a period of time known as the Golden Age. After the Collapse, the Traveler sacrificed itself to save humanity, and now serves as protector of the last bastion of human civilization by providing a defensive shield around the City and imbuing the Guardians with abilities with whatever power it has left.

Background

The City is the biggest city left on Earth and where humans are making their last stand against the hordes of encroaching enemies after the Collapse. It is here that the last remnants of Humans, Exo, and Awoken are gathered, working to survive. Built after the discovery of the Traveler, it is a safe haven for commerce and docking, but it is constantly subject to attack from opposing forces. The Traveler hovers above the city, giving powers to the Guardians who are protectors of the city and also seek to reclaim the former glory of humanity. The city currently holds 45 billion Humans, 3 billion Awoken, and 2 billion Exo counting a total population of 50 billion per district. The city has six districts, together housing 300 billion residents. They currently hold as a nation North and South America, Oceania (used as farmland), Western Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Eastern Siberia. These regions are used as resource bases. Africa is used by the residents as a ship yard. The forces of the city act as shield and hammer but currently they remain static, kept to their bases to act as protectors for the city. They are as well equipped as level 40 Guardians, kitted with exotic rifles and armour. While Guardians act as the City's primary attack force, the City currently does not hold Eastern Europe and the Caucasus. The people of the city supply and feed themselves, synthesizing plants and meat. The residents also synthesize and copy resources.

 

Features

The City is a hub for Guardians and is the center of commerce. Gameplay-wise, it is the safe zone where players can interact with one another and select missions and various upkeep tasks.

Guardians.jpg "You are a Guardian of the last safe city on Earth, able to wield some of the Traveler's incredible power. You are taking this mantle just as a new day dawns. Titans, Hunters, and Warlocks have finally returned to our long-lost worlds, only to find out we are not alone."


Background



Guardians are the player characters of Destiny. Warriors and protectors given abilities from the Traveler, they are tasked with defending the last City on Earth and reclaiming the worlds lost during the Collapse. They make their headquarters in the Tower. They are represented by three different races and can be one of three different classes. They are mentored by a being called the Mask.

  • A vault will allow for swapping gear between the player's different characters.
  • Guardians have four known stats: Energy, Shields, Agility, and Discipline.
  • A newly created Guardian may have their gender, face, hair, and tattoos customized.

      46 billion? BILLION?? Surely that's a typo! I know the collapse was a few hundred years previous to this but this is still essentially a post appocoliptic world. So how the hell can one city, the last and only city on earth, support a population that massive?

        There is no overwatch district, who the ***** is 'the mask', you mean the speaker .... right? Grimoire cards aren't even here, and 'guardians are the player characters of destiny' is a definition, not lore. Beautiful site but seriously, has anyone editing this even *****ing played the game????
