“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending.

Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

The gates of Hell are locked from within

The fundamental story of the Bible is of God’s attempts to reach out to His Creation and repair it – and of His Creation’s stubborn refusal to pay attention to the loving ministrations of a God that cares deeply about us. We have grown prideful and...
