FUTURE WAR CULT

A faction is a group that Guardians can join and earn reputation with. Most factions are based within the Last City at the Tower. Completing an activity for a faction allows Guardians to increase their rank with them and earn rewards.

There are three factions that form the City’s government, the Consensus, and seek champions among the Guardians to represent them in the Crucible. Guardians may pledge themselves to a faction for a fee of 2500 Glimmer, in doing so they can earn faction-specific rewards, such as Armor, Weapons, Emblems, Shaders and Ships. Guardians are permitted to change their allegiance to a faction, but can only do so once per week, and must pay the fee each time. When a player reaches Reputation level 25 within their faction, they’ll unlock a faction quest that rewards an Exotic Class Item that increases reputation gains with that faction. This Exotic Class item has the ability to be equipped with one other Exotic piece of armor.

Earn Future War Cult Reputation by trading in materials such as:

  • Mote of Light (x5) [Yields 100 Rep]
  • Weapon Parts (x25) [Yields 75 Rep]
  • Armor Materials (x25) [Yields 50 Rep]
  • Special Ammo Synthesis (x4) [Yields 25 Rep]
  • Heavy Ammo Synthesis (x1) [Yields 25 Rep]

The following looks a the Future War Cult.

Future War Cult

In the earliest days of the Last City, various factions vied for the hearts and minds of the masses. The struggle because so strong that an ensuing war developed between the, The following conflicts, known as the Faction Wars, brought the City to its knees. A gathering of Guardians fought to end the conflict and a new peace brought a new order: the City Consensus and the Speaker ruled together, and the surviving great factions worked through civil channels to pursue their agendas.

The Future War Cult was one of these factions. Led by a group called the Inner Circle, members are known for their military prowess as well as their secrecy. They believe they must always be ready for the impending war with the Darkness. In their opinion, preparing for that confrontation should be the sole, driving purpose of the Last City and the Guardians. They are also deeply concerned with fate, and whether or not it is possible to alter history altogether.

While the origins of the Future War Cult are greatly debated, their mark has been found on ancient chambers and encampments throughout the system, dating them back to the late Golden Age. The Future War Cult was founded by Dr. Maya Sundaresh and her team in Lhasa, as a result of their experiments on a Vex-inspired mind-forking device used to look into the future. This device caused its users to become mentally unstable, and they began worshipping the device as a god. The modern FWC recovered the design of the device and rebuilt it in The City. Use of the device was abandoned when most users became insane. Those who did not reported different timelines where the Darkness is victorious or the City has fallen. This device forms the basis of FWC’s beliefs.

Though their secrets are vast, they have proven indispensable in our struggle against the Darkness, earning them power and respect in the City Consensus and among Guardians.

Lakshmi-2

Lakshmi-2 is the Future War Cult’s representative within the Tower. Guardians who have pledged allegiance to the Future War Cult can finder her upstairs within the Tower Hanger. From here she will greet Guardians and reward them for their endeavors. There is nothing Lakshmi-2 likes more than secrets. Her origins are unknown; her appearance in the City was abrupt. She courts select Guardians for initiation into the higher mysteries of the Future War Cult, espousing a brutal philosophy of endless struggle.

Those who can tolerate Lakshmi’s mocking hints and bloody-minded philosophy find her surprisingly good company. She seems to take genuine joy in her work, as if the secrets she guards have taught her to treasure every moment.*

“There is no future but now. No truth but war.”
