FLIGHT FROM COVENANT
Covenant

THE WATCHER RAZES THE RUINS OF COVENANT IN SEARCH OF THE TOTAL CODEX.

Monday September 15, Shepherd's Gate, Covenant

The Watcher has entered Covenant from the north, and his tireless undead are raping the old city a second time; tearing down what few structures stand in their way, and choking the sky with dust and smoke. That he wants the book which now rests at the bottom of my pack is clear.

Against my better judgment, I opened the Codex last night to a random page and read about the life of a man not yet born, who would resurrect the Myrkridia and visit horrors on the world without equal in history or myth. I believed every word. I have resolved to destroy the thing before allowing it to become an instrument of the Dark.

Mauriac is on his feet now, talking to the men. We met him and a few other survivors of the first expedition hiding in a collapsed cellar a few hundred feet away from the outer wall, and joined them for a brief rest until dawn.

Mauriac was prince regent here during King Alric's adolescence, and knows of an underground tunnel just outside the city which leads to Shoal, a village four miles away down the coast. The King's family used it to escape Covenant when Soulblighter leveled the city twelve years ago, and today we hope it will help us elude the Watcher.

 

Go to the Field Guide Entry documenting this level's easter eggs and points of interest with pictures.

Mission Objective: Escort the Journeyman carrying the Total Codex to the hidden tunnel outside of Covenant.

Notes: We see Soulblighter for the first time and take a tunnel home.

Notable Quote: "Damn, we should have gone around them!"

"Mauriac is on his feet now, talking to the men. We met him and a few other survivors of the first expedition hiding in a collapsed cellar a few hundred feet away from the outer wall, and joined them for a brief rest until dawn."

This graphic shows the survivors of the first expedition inside the collapsed celler.

Again we don't learn anything new, but at least the pictures are cool.

Flight From Covenant Theories
The journal entry for this level provides more foreshadowing than any of the others. This paragraph tells more about Myth II than any other text in Myth I, save perhaps the entry before Shadow of the Mountain

"Against my better judgment, I opened the Codex last night to a random page and read about the life of a man not yet born, who would resurrect the Myrkridia and visit horrors on the world without equal in history or myth. I believed every word. I have resolved to destroy the thing before allowing it to become an instrument of the Dark."

We know the Myrkridia are in Myth II (formerly known as "Feebs" or "Trogs" by the Myth community, also called "those wearwolf things" by Myth Irradiated and "those evil bird-footed things" by Vorracious Rabbits). But then, who is the unborn man who ressurects them? And what role, exactly, do they play?

If you win this level you see a warrior in the library with the head on a pedestal.

    Now who can that dark robed monk be?

If you lose this level you see the same screen as in the last level.

Whats with The Watcher's little jesters kelt with the dangling bells?

Legends and Lore is really Forrest's baby, though Gholsbane probably does more work on it nowadays. It also contains a lot of work from the Myth Nontoxic days whose exact authors have been lost or forgotten. Some of these lemurs include Joshstar, Orange, Lacrymosa, and poena.dare. Original "Journal of the Legion" concept by poena.dare and Hamish Sinclair. Other authors are credited as appropriate in their individual articles.

Myth at Bungie.org is now maintained almost entirely by Gholsbane and Zandervix; Forrest is (theoretically) still around calling the shots when he can be bothered to check his email, and Claude, as always, OWNZ U. Original Nontoxic™ webpage design copyright (c) 1998 by Joshstar; updates and revisions mostly by Forrest. Many thanks to all those old Nontoxic™ munkies - you know who you are.
