FORWARD ELEMENTS OF THE LEGION EXPLORE SILVERMINES.

Sunday November 30, Outskirts of Silvermines

The old stories all tell that when Balor freed the Watcher from his prison under the Cloudspine, one arm was left trapped in his prison of solid rock. Bound by a powerful confinement dream, it should have remained there forever. But it didn't.

We're a hundred miles from Bagrada and two days ahead of the rest of the Legion today, outside a town called Silvermines, looking for the Watcher's arm. You have no idea how small it makes you feel to be poking around the ruins of an abandoned town looking for the shriveled arm of the second or third most powerful sorcerer in living memory.

I don't understand how the arm got to Silvermines, or how The Nine knew where to look for it, but I can tell they want it bad. They hope to use the Watcher's arm against him, if we find it. Rather like knowing his true name, only better. Again, I don't pretend to understand.

Problem is The Deceiver is thinking the same thing. Some of The Fallen are over a millennium old, and their rivalries go back just as far. We know The Deceiver is looking for the arm too, and has been digging up Silvermines since last summer.

We're going in this evening to grab it.

 

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

Mission Objective: Recover the Watchers' arm.

Interesting Scenery: On the east side of Silvermines there is a mine entrance which is worth looking at.

On your way out, be sure to check out the headstones in the graveyard.

If you win this level you see looks like the zerk just spotted the arm and is pointing. Although the landscape looks like that trail at the end of the level; is the zerk pathfinding for his buddies? From his posture it looks like he's just examined something on the ground before he looked up and pointed.

Victory Screen

    Was this scene from a movie somewhere? I can't put my finger on it.

If you lose you see your dead troops just outside the little miner town.

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.
