Help us transcribe Forsaken!

This is a follow-up to our previous posts, Help us transcribe Destiny 2!, Help us transcribe Curse of Osiris (and Destiny 2)! and Help us transcribe Warmind!.


If you’d like to help us transcribe here’s what you need to do:

  1. Pick an activity from the list below. Edit this post to replace [assignee] with your @name.
  2. Record a video of that activity.
  3. Edit the video to remove any irrelevant parts.
  4. Upload your video somewhere (it doesn’t have to be youtube, but we might upload it to the Ishtar Collective youtube channel if we can’t embed it).
  5. Transcribe the audio following our Transcript Guide.
  6. Post your video and transcript in a new topic, and edit this topic to replace [link] with a link to your topic.
  7. Receive the love and adoration of all of us at the Ishtar Collective! :heart: :heart_eyes: :heart:

Don’t forget to follow the rules laid out in Transcript Guide.

What about variations in dialogue?

Recording variations in dialogue is awesome, and if you can edit them into your video, great! But don’t worry if you can’t capture every variation. Our philosophy is that it is better to have one variation finished than to have every possible variation in progress for weeks. Using playlists it is possible to add videos of dialogue to a Transcript later.


In Forsaken, the ‘Pilgrimage’ patrols in the Dreaming City offer a lot of additional information about the nature of the Awoken and the Reef. To help transcribe these please visit the Pilgrimage Patrol Tracker.

Ghost Scans

There are hundreds of Ghost Scans and we can’t easily compile a list of them like we can with missions and strikes, so if you would like to help us with Ghost Scans, follow the above guide but submit your new post to the Ghost Scan Transcripts category and update one of the following tracker posts.

Should we add a section to make a collage of character’s reactions to Cayde’s death? Like Amanda, or Devrim?

I think this is a great idea! I don’t think it would fit on the site right now, but it would be good to put together the video.

Could you start a new thread for it?

I updated the list with everything that was submitted to Commons and some missions which weren’t there.

@VulshokBersrker The missions/adventures you added to the list have transcripts which have already been uploaded to Ishtar. I removed them from the list so that it’s easier to see which ones still need transcripts to be done or need to be uploaded to Ishtar.

Hi all… my clan leader has given permission for his videos to be used as long as credit is given to ‘King Arthur Pendragon of the Knights of Pendragon’ (lol I know). Link to the channel below

@Raven85 thank you to your clan leader for offering to help but we require videos for transcripts which only have footage of the dialogue, not fighting enemies etc. Here’s a guide on how to do transcripts.

As per a suggestion from @Baxter, I’ve added a Completed section to the bottom of the list which has all the completed transcripts from Forsaken and Black Armory (excluding the pilgrimage patrols and ghost scans, as the list would be even longer if I included those). Transcripts will be added to this section once they’ve been uploaded to Ishtar.


Can there be a raid grouping too? Also do y’all have a ps4 clan that you use to set up grouping up to do these collections, I mean I would love to help take video but I only have a ps4 (pc is on back burner now), and scripting is always weird to me.

By raid grouping do you mean transcripts for dialogue in raids? There’s posts for transcripts of the Leviathan and Last Wish raids, but they don’t have many dialogue variations at the moment. Are you interested in helping with raid transcripts or transcripts in general? Clips recorded on a ps4 can be used for transcripts, they don’t have to be recorded on a pc.

There is an official Ishtar Collective clan called 227 Simulated Scientists. I believe most of the people in the clan are on ps4.


Can you join the clan even if you are on pc?

As far as I’m aware people from any platform can join the clan, but I don’t know if there’s many members who are on pc.

Ok. Thanks for the response.

Thanks I really appreciate it. Also, yeah I meant that I had only seen sections for strikes, story, adventure etc.

You’re welcome! If there’s any particular transcripts you’d like to help with let me know :slightly_smiling_face:
