How & Why Did You Get into Lore Exploration?

I #blameJustin – this whole thing stemmed from the our chance meeting and his crazy lack of care about things like “how are we going to do this?” Check out the Thank You snippet for more details on this whole story.

How & Why Did You Get into Lore Exploration?

Exploring mythologies and [folk]lore has been a passion of mine since I was a youngling. This passion spurred me to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Classical Studies (languages, drama, epics, culture, myth), but my true interests lay beyond even what my academics have allowed me. To be a mythologist is my life’s goal; to understand the process of modern myth-making is my desire. That is why I will continue to study myth and story-telling in all its mediums.

How & Why Did You Get into Lore Exploration?

I was searching podcasts to listen to about Destiny on my commute to work & stumbled across this one about a month after its founding.
I really liked that the format stuck to what we know we can prove, mainly, and found it much easier to listen to. Also Justin was funny and Blue’s laugh can’t help but make you smile (no, I did not get paid to say that).

How & Why Did You Get into Lore Exploration?

It was in November of 2015 and I was on Twitch when all of a sudden I get this Whisper from this person named BlueCrew86 asking if I was on Band and interested in talking Halo lore. I was like “what the heck is Band?” but I will always jump at the chance to talk the story of Halo, so I took a shot and joined up. Started with Halo and then joined in on the Destiny chat. Got invited on to do a Halo story podcast (for reasons that still escape me) and have been hooked every since.

How & Why Did You Get into Lore Exploration?

I first heard of Focused Fire Chat through Byf’s channel, first time he was a guest. I like the idea of a cross community gathering, where people of all types could discuss the Lore. My favorite aspect of Destiny lore is the Bungie Armory in its entirety, along with the all the writers. I’m fascinated by the hidden lore and many real world influences it draws upon.

How & Why Did You Get into Lore Exploration?

I think my fascination of story exploration began way back when I was very small. I went to the now defunct FunkoLand location near me and was looking for a copy of Final Fantasy 2(4) and the clerk replied “We have 3(6).” I took that to mean they had three copies of FF2 and didn’t realize what had happened until I got home later. Deciding I’d check the game out anyway, I began my first intense dive into a game world and the stories within. I spent hundreds of hours playing and replaying the game. Even though I had gotten all the lore out of FF3, the itch to learn more never went away.

To be honest, I hope it never does.

How & Why Did You Get into Lore Exploration?

I began posting daily weapon trivia/lore over on /r/DestinyLore subreddit a little over a year ago. Blue reached out to me and invited me into the Focused Fire Chat community, due to these postings. Everyone there made me feel so comfortable and welcome that I’ve never had a need to reach out into any other communities. I suggest everyone reach out to different communities and find one that makes you welcome and participate in that community at a level that you feel comfortable with. No matter what that level is, your participation is much appreciated.
