Bug in the System
If the Hive swarm the center...
Guardian picks up the adventure signal.
Ghost "Picking up a signal from Osiris. He and Sagira want us to head into the Forest. Something about an experiment involving the Hive...
The Guardian enters the Infinite Forest.
Ghost "So, the Vex are simulating the Hive to test a new reality path. There's an opportunity here."
Sagira "Go cause trouble. The Vex don't handle 'unexpected input' that well."
Ghost "Mess up the tests, give them nothing but garbage output - I like it!"
Sagira "So this is what it feels like when we're in total agreement. Weirrrd."
The Guardian approaches a simulant gateway.
Osiris "The Hive constantly adapt and evolve, generating new mutations as naturally as we breathe. The Vex know this, and seek to catalog and exploit these mutations in real time."
Sagira "So hey, it'd be great if you could smash this simulation before the Vex can learn anything of value."
The Guardian enters the simulant future.
Ghost "Get ready to trash some data!. And by trash, I mean 'destroy Hive."
The Guardian destroys the barrier.
Ghost "The longer we can hold off the Hive, the more I can corrupt the Vex Data. Get ready!"
If the Hive swarms the center...
Ghost "Too many Hive! They're breaking my link to the Vex data stream. "They returned power to the barrier. Let's find a Cyclops.
One wave of Hive is defeated...
Ghost "That's one sector down. Let's see if we cant stick it out. The more corrupted data we feed the Vex, the better. Looks like they want to go another round. Knock 'em dead."
Fight goes on...
Ghost "The Forest can generate so many Hive - it might as well be their homeworld."
Sagira "We've thought about that."
Ghost "Have you simulated the Hive homeworld?"
Sagira "Didn't go well."
The Guardian kills the Herald Proxy.
Sagira "All done in there? Good. Vex misfortune is one of my favorite things. Of course, with all the bad data you're feeding them, there could be side effects in other simulations. Like...the one you're in. Time to go!"
