Show Notes – Ep 159 (The Book of Unmaking)

Join Blue and Green as they dive into the depths of the Book of Unmaking, which we acquired recently in Destiny 2 via The Draw exotic quest.


Summary of Episode

Warning: This week’s episode is a bit longer than usual – but Blue felt it was better to keep it as a single file for you to listen to rather than trying to break it into 2-3 segments.

The lore book offers an amazing look into the story of the Shadows of Yor – and while it does answer a few questions, the ones that it raises are even more intriguing.

A book with 3 stories within – the text as translated by a group dedicated to exploring the Shadows of the man who left it behind, a collection of their understanding, and the scrawled thoughts of one man’s justification for the tragedies to come. With Osiris, we asked what would drive a Warlock to madness – here we are challenged with the question of at what point does the search for answers become an obsession with the forbidden?

The Shadows, desperate in their search for the truth that lay behind the legend of Dredgen Yor, approach the inquiry with the appropriate concern…but it would seem that even this was not enough to prepare them for what lie await in the dark. We can glean from Teben’s notes a significant level of information about not just the Shadows, but the overall world of Destiny. Possible connections to other major figures are now made visible – as well as some strong possibilities for explanations on events which have been in game since the start of the series.

Within the verses and general statements of the understandings of the Shadows we are presented with details to lead one down the path of their eventual unmaking – though even at the conclusion, we are left wondering if this is truly an evolution or merely another elaborate trap to consume the Light.
