The Truth About The Forerunner

In ancient eastern Asia, humans made rocket ships and colonized foreign worlds. They became... the Forerunner!

 

Or so I gather from The Babysitter.

 

Seriously, what

i don't at all see how that's a bad thing

 

tbh i had high hopes for this and haven't been let down

It's a bad thing because it goes against all the design features that we've seen previously of the Forerunner. I guess there could have been different groups with different styles, though.

 

The rest of it was good. Also, that Jiralhanae was awesome.

given the difference between delta halo and every other bit of forerunner architecture ever I'm not surprised

 

also what's to say pagodas as stuff weren't based on forerunner stuff in the first place?

Well, the Delta Halo stuff was "ancient Forerunner" in design, similar to the stuff they found in the Babysitter, I guess. In terms of age. But I suppose the Forerunner had different styles of architecture, different cultures, which would explain the differences.

 

I guess that's a possibility, but seems unlikely. To me, anyway.

 

Still doesn't explain why there were statues/carvings of humans in an ancient Forerunner ruin.

Mahayana Buddhists, to be precise. Which is odd because Buddhism is a relatively recent religion. And Mahayana Buddhism is even never then that.
