Good news, I finally found bgrishinko and shadow again and we teamed up with a few others to go check out this really cool space cruise ship thingy.  Bad news, I'm super lost.. again.

bgrishinko was going on and on and on about realms and codes and RedGas extra dumb IT while I was jumping around exploring.  I might have fallen off the ship a couple of times, but it really wasn't my fault... ever since I got my light back my jumps really don't carry the same momentum they used to.  There was a time where I could harness the pulse of consecutive jumps and out run even the fastest hunters, now I'm slow and often miscalculate how far I can jump.  Anyways, after my last failed jump I re-spawned inside a maze of industrial hallways.  I swear I've explored every route, but I get the feeling I'm going in circles... oh and guess what that new map/radar I got... yeah it doesn't work here..

UPDATE - found them, though I'm still not sure why I wanted to..  Perhaps the fumes from the blue flames and purple floor had gotten to them, because the second I got there I was asked to join a dance party at the feet of a giant yet barely clothed cabal while bg lit him self on fire near the door.  I never turn down a dance party though, so I obliged, and i thought fatty was about to join us as well, but no..  he stomped us.. and only moments later we found ourselves transported into a nightmare that I can't describe.

shadow said it was all part of the plan, a plan that I was promised included some easy loot, but we all left empty handed.  Apparently the plan needs some work, If I know bg, he'll have some ideas for next time, and I'm a sucker for loot, so I'll probably join.. also I want to see fatty go down..

We entered the great beast of a ship in search of he who controlled it. The extravagance on display was beyond comparison. The walls of this so called Leviathan (it must have been named after the ancient massive creature the Hive fought against with the same name) seemed to be made of Gold at every turn. Mud baths, Gardens for their animals, gladiator style arena games… it all felt very disconnected to the purpose of this massive ship. Was not this ship intended to destroy planets as it sucked them into its gaping maw? Calus taunted us over the ship's loud speaker inviting us to be tried against a variety of challenges, but rather than participate in the silly games that Calus intended for us, we managed to find our way into a service corridor. Well jumphish kept falling off the edge of the ship and couldn't find the corridor, but that's another matter. We received an encrypted message from the IT department of a mysterious group called "Radegast's Extra Detailed Data." I'd received good anonymous advice from this group before when fighting the Hive general Crota.
They'd informed me previously about the details in which the Hive's Ascendant Realm was linked to our own. Between our dimension and the Hive's, there is a link of sort. As a Warlock, I was familiar with the concepts of Hive Sword Logic and how these dimensions were connected. Referencing Stijn's 3rd Law of Quantum Entanglement, actions in one dimension have a direct link to at least one or more other dimensions. Depending on nature of the particular quantum connection, results may appear psychic in nature or could have real physical manifestations. In the case of the Hive Ascendant Realms, the Hive's thought processes and physical forms are dependent on this link existing. Even when the Hive are destroyed in our world and retreat physically to the Ascendant Realm, their mental link remains. Normally the Hive's mental link cannot be severed, and any attempt to do so would just reconnect via other paths piggybacking on our own mental link between dimensions. I believe this might have what led to Eris Morn being so…. well never mind. The advice I'd received from Radegast's IT department was that if this mental psychic link between our realm and Crota's Ascended Realm was severed at just the right moment when Crota was at his most vulnerable, he'd be torn between dimensions and his mind would no longer function to control his body correctly.  The dangerous part was that I'd need to also sever my own link between the dimensions and risk being lost forever. However, the risk was worth it. After destroying Crota's protective barrier and he knelt to recharge, I severed the link between our worlds just briefly including my own, the pain was unbearable, but only lasted a short time. With effort I was able to re-establish my own link across dimensions, but he was unable to re-establish his psychic link. He was unable to move. It was from this experience I learned to trust the Radegast's IT department.

Anyway, they'd provided me a six digit code (much like they'd provided me the codes to decrypt SIVA clusters in the past) to gain access to underground tunnels for the Leviathan. After a few hours of wandering aimlessly in the bowels of the ship (I'll never be able to get the soot stains off my favorite vestments…), we finally found his "Throne Room." The floors were made of what appeared to crystalized wine. We found Shadow continually trying to lick the floors, which… ugh… I just can't. Anyway, as we began to do battle with the Cabal forces that this Emperor Calus sent at us, we were all of a sudden transported to another dimension. He must be proficient in the art of Hive Sword Logic as well! This made me recall my experiences for being torn during my fights with Crota. If this Calus had a psychic link to another dimension… there must also be a way to manipulate this link between worlds to effectively sabotage his control on this world.

Indeed there was! Radegast's Extra Detailed Data's IT department came through again! Our fireteam would distract Calus with various awful dancing techniques right at his feet. This would cause Calus to become angry and destroy my companions, and while it would be painful for them I'd be burning myself alive… so it's all fair play. As our Ghosts worked on bringing us back from the brink, I'd utilize my knowledge of the link between dimensions… the burning myself alive created an interesting scenario in which my mental link was inserted into Calus's psychic link in which he'd control his troops. I found that if I transmatted myself out of his chamber at just the right second, the link to his troops would dissipate and as we'd confront him the next time, he would have no reinforcements. This was a major boon for us. Unfortunately he was still able to transport our team to his other realm. This other realm seemed to defy all physics as we know it. It did not abide the laws of the Hive Ascendant Realms as I knew it. It seemed to be only a shadow of the other dimensions we'd visited before. This caused much confusion in communication as well as movement patterns that prevented us from destroying Calus. We decided we needed to regroup to understand Calus's other realm.

OH MAN! You shoulda seen jumphish jumping around like a damned fool. It was amazing! Shadow and I could barely keep it together. That being said, I was able to take some interesting notes about the movement patterns of Titans from it, which was my real goal in the end. It is interesting the extended float time they have despite not being trained in the mystical arts like us Warlocks. You don't see Hunters hovering while jumping, they drop like a rock. Yet despite the Titan's mass, it manages to stay afloat. I will have to speak with jumphish in a non-descript way to try and gleam more information about the subject. Anyway, Shadow's "Twitch" experiment seemed to have failed as well. We could not efficiently remotely monitor jumphish. He's proceeding with a beta program that has much the same capabilities of the twitch program code named "Beam." We will have to wait and see if that will serve as useful. In other news, I overheard some kids talking about some man called "The Rat King" while I was doing my cardio while taking my daily track run around the tower grounds. I'm not sure what that's about, but apparently there's an army of some sort out there under his command. I'd be interesting in finding the origin of this rumor, one of the kids mentioned Titan. Another reason to speak with jumphish again.

I'm sitll 90% convinced that Shadow is certifiably crazy, but he's not dumb.  To assist in walking me through getting this HUD radar figured out he boosted our party coms and found enough bandwidth to allow me to patch through a live 3rd person video feed from my ghost, there are connection glitches here and there, but he's pretty proud of it and affectionately named it a "twitch feed".  After breaking down a handful of random scouts he talked me through putting the parts together to form a MIDA scout, which basically just collects stats on its usage.  Where it gets really interesting is that the manufacturers hid an easteregg in the telemetry module, unlocked by boosting certain stats.. really dumb stats... like jump in the air and shoot stuff while airborne dumb.  I'm almost completely convinced that BG and Shadow never really needed twitch to walk me through building the weapon, they just wanted to watch me, the bulky midnight lumos "salmon pink" titan, try to stealthfully sneak up on low level enemies and then awkwardly jump and flop around trying hopelessly to hit my target..  After a few minutes of painfully awkward attempts, the hilarity of the situation wore off for BG and he politely informed me that hitting my targets while standing on any elevated object tricked the telemetry module into counting the stat..  anyways I have a radar now, and by this time tomorrow I should be teamed up with BG and shadow.

I made audio contact with Bgrishinko and Shadow today, I'm ecstatic that they're alive, but equally frustrated and bewildered that we have light that can literally resurrect us from death, yet we have a communication system that struggles with even the most rudimentary failover of protocols.  What good is a coms failover if it doesn't notify you or your fireteam that you've been relinquished to fireteam coms due to temporary interference and also fails restore you to your primary coms when the interference has dissipated.  Enough with my ranting, we're all still separated, but shadow says he has some ideas about how we might be able to get radar linked up to our HUDs so we can locate eacother again.. something about collecting scout rifles..   -jumphish

IT WORKED...  IT FREAKING WORKED!!..  I knew that if I would have any chance at survival it wouldn't be from hiding, so I redirected my efforts towards building up some defense.  I read a while back about kessler syndrome, where there's so much debris in orbit you can't place a satellite without it getting demolished, so they started equipping warsats with ACD (active contact defense)..  They can obsorb energy from smaller debris, and when something bigger gets in the way it releases a blast to clear a path.  Anyways I found a downed warsat and was able to modify its superconductor to make my own ACD in the form of gauntlets.  I think I'll call them AC-DC feedback fence.  I'm still trying to lay low, but I feel a little more comfortable engaging smaller enemies now.

It turns out remaining in the shadows is much harder than I had anticipated.  I'm not a dainty hunter and I have quickly come to the realization that my hot pink SRL midnight lumos shader was a horrible choice for this expedition.  You might be wondering why I don't change it out, well its the same reason I can't change anything out right now, BG and Shadow had the wonderful idea of relinquishing all of our excess inventory to our vaults in order to make room for the "sweet loot" that we would pick up from this Raid.  Now here I am, no loot, no backup gear, trying to hide as a giant hot pink princess with no clue on whether or not the rest of my fireteam is even alive.  I can't stay here any longer if I don't go punch something I'm going to end up wasting my super as an anxiety bubble.  wait... I have an idea...  I'll get back to you tomorrow

While the indicator shows one other active guardian in the area, but I can't help but feel I am the last.  My ghost has been malfunctioning for days now and I fear that my light may not be sufficient for regeneration.  I'm hiding in the shadows
