Rejected Lore 9 – Spilled Vex Milk

At Budgie we write a lot of lore, but we also write a lot of bad lore that doesn’t make it into the game. This is the Rejected Lore.

Rejected Lore 9 – Spilled Vex Milk

The Drifter stood on the Derelict, with eight guardians waiting to be transmitted into a Gambit match.

“Well brothers and sisters, I got a story the Vanguard won’t tell you.  You see, the Vex weren’t always this white. There used to be a dark and a light vex, kinda like those space triangles and that circle god you worship. The dark vex had black soldiers and brown vex milk. A sweeter, tastier vex milk. Oh, how I miss it.

The dark vex wanted their revenge. You would too if you’d been enslaved for timeless eons.

Two huge spherical cap-shaped armies formed (bowl shape for your Titans out there). Those two bowl armies spanned the galaxy, clashing and spilling Vex milk all over the place. The Table and Floor systems were completely covered. There was so much milk spilled they renamed the galaxy the Milky Way.

It was a profitable time for a guy like me, playing both sides.  But nothing lasts forever.  The top dogs Sergeant Crunch and Duke Chocola met at their simulation dohickeys and sorted it out: simulated their futures. Only way they would both survive was to split the timeline. White vex got forward time and the black vex got backward time, poor saps. I think those simulations were sour. But hey, can’t blame ‘em. When it comes to life and death, dirty’s the only way to play.

You ever drink chocolate vex milk?  You can’t anymore.  Hah. No chocolate vex on the field!”
