FORCE TEN FROM STONEHEIM
The Plain of Scales

THE DECEIVER ATTEMPTS TO CROSS THE CLOUDSPINE AT SEVEN GATES AND BAGRADA.

Friday November 7, The Plain of Scales

We were two days in that tunnel out of Covenant, the Watcher crossing above us every few hours, shaking the ground in his fury and twice nearly burying us alive. Sometime on the second day the tremors grew less distinct, and we were relieved to find nothing but rats and mosquitoes waiting for us when we reached Shoal.

Not wishing to return west we headed down the coast toward the old city of Scales, where we met Maeldun's southern garrison and turned over the Codex.

We learned there that by coincidence the combined armies of the North are only four days behind us, heading for the mountains to stop The Deceiver, another of The Fallen Lords, from crossing the Cloudspine before winter.

But we can't wait for them: There is a World Knot west of the Cloudspine and The Head insists that the enemy has learned to travel through the Knots. If we don't destroy this portal we might hold the mountains only to be outflanked by forces emerging from the Knot behind us.

Eight Dwarven irregulars and every man in Scales from the Legion have volunteered for the mission.

 

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

Mission Objective: Find the World Knot and destroy one of its four pylons.

Notes: There are some villagers that need help.

Notable Quote: "Then you waste your time, the gods aren't listening."

The following images are actual pregame pics cut from the final release.

Again they merely illustrate the narrations

"Not wishing to return west we headed down the coast toward the old city of Scales, where we met Maeldun’s southern garrison and turned over the Codex."

"There a World Knot west of the Cloudspine and The Head insists that the enemy has learned to travel through the Knots. If we don’t destroy this portal we might hold the mountains only to be outflanked by forces emerging from the Knot behind us."

Here we see Soulless and Thrall coming through the knot.

Also note the clear marking on that world knot...

What can they possibly mean?

If you win this level you see a victorious dwarf treating us to a closeup of a marking that was on one of the worldknot pylons. (Or perhaps it's one of those Irish [Scottish?] good luck charms, the weird-shaped ones that I never understood. Anybody have a clue on this?).

    Now what does it mean?

If you lose this level you see rolly polly dorf heads.

Victory Screen

Ouch (?)

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.
