Episode 52: I See You’ve Played Swordy-Gunny Before

June 9, 2017

Episode 52: The DGS Variety Hour 3 Hours

Welcome back, Guardians! Due to swamp gas from a weather balloon trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected off the light from Venus, we were short exactly one GabbleRatchet and one Cosmololgy this week. So this episode will be a light-lore show with Xray, drop, and Sherb doing some podcast housecleaning. We're talking about general Destiny news, Guardiancon, what's going on around the podcast, answering user questions, and a ton of other random stuff. We'll be back on track and back into the Vault of Glass on the next episode!

Episode 50: Vault of Glass: Part 3

May 16, 2017

Episode 50: It's Not Lupus

Part 3! Welcome back, Guardians! On this episode... uh, well, drop and Cosmo go off the deep end exploring organic nature of the Vex and their architecture as well as the connections between Alpha Lupi and the Vault of Glass. This episode is really designed to be some "food for thought" as we start in on the Guardians experience with the Vault, focusing on the Templar and the Oracles. 

This is a dense episode, so be on the lookout for some follow up from the team as well as a very special next show when we discuss some exciting unnanounced content as a refreshing break between Vault shows. Enjoy!

Episode 49: The Vault of Glass - Part 2

May 2, 2017

Episode 49: It Means "Tomb".

Welcome Guardians! This is Part 2 of our look into the Vault of Glass and this show is going to focus heavily on the the story of Kabr, Praedyth, and Pahanin; the most famous Guardians to enter the Vault. We'll be discussing some of the mysteries surrounding their experience in the Vault, what happened to each of them as a result, and how their legacy affects our Guardian's journey through it. Cosmololgy is back with us for the ride, so expect some delicious quantum mechanics and metaphysics discussions along with the usual DGS shenanigans.

We know we've been running a little late with episodes, but the pace will be picking up soon. Our apologies for the wait! This episode is the first peak of this rollercoaster of a topic. It's all downhill from here, so get ready for a wild ride!

Episode 48: Vaulting the Glass

March 26, 2017

Episode 48: CosmoVaultlolgy

Welcome Guardians! After a bit of a hiatus, we're back! At the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017 we started down a road to lay the groundwork for future episodes. This is the last one of those episodes as we set the stage for an our epic, in-depth, series exploring the Vault of Glass. This episode is going to introduce some of the Vault's mysteries as well as get some necessary groundwork about the Vex out of the way. This is the last lore-light episode before we dive hardcore into every aspect of the Vault of Glass

This is also a much more light-hearted episode since we've been away for a while. We get off track a lot discussing what we've been up to the last month or so (spoilers: Horizon Zero Dawn) and talking with this episode's special guest, Cosmololgy, aka Astrophysics Jesus. It's a silly ride this week, but one we had to get out of the way before we confront the mysteries of the Vault of Glass.

Episode 47: Community Artists Interview

January 25, 2017

Episode 47: Community Artist Interview - JeredB and Matt Oishi

Heads up, Guardians, this isn't a lore focused episode!

On this episode of Ghost Stories we're thrilled to welcome two Destiny Community Artists, JeredB and Matt Oishi! You may recognize JeredB as the artist who created our one year anniversiary t-shirt, the hilarious Thanotanauts video, and a whole host of other awesome Destiny artwork. Matt Oishi is best known for his silky smooth, anime and pop culture inspired, Destiny animations and chracter class profile artwork. Join us as we discuss art, the community, Destiny, lore, inspiration, and a whole lot more.

This episode contains a few moments of adult language, and should be considered PG-13. Listen responsibly, parental Guardians.

Episode 46: The Fruit of the Garden - Part 2

Welcome Guardians! We're back for the conclusion of our look into the "Fruit of the Garden" Missions, which serve as a jumping off point for a bunch of future episodes on some pretty big topics. As discussed previously, these missions introduce us to the Vex, the Cabal, Venus, Mars, Clovis Bray, the Black Garden, and a whole lot more. On this show we're picking up right where we left off and following the Guardian to Mars for the first time and following all the way through to the conclusion of the main Destiny story.

Special Episode: Merry Vexmas!

December 24, 2016

Merry Vexmas: A Visit From St. Everis

Merry Vexmas and Happy Dawning everyone!

Twas the night before Vexmas, when all through the ship,
Not a radar was blinking, not even a blip;
The vault space was cleared in the Tower with care,
In hopes that St. Everis soon would be there;
The Risen were nestled, all snug in their beds,
While Visions of Confluence flowed through their heads;
And I in my Battlecage, Greaves, Grips, and Wrath,
Had resigned my brain to a warm, briny bath;
When out in the Ruin there arose such a clatter,
I summoned my Sparrow to see what was the matter.
Away to the Spire I sped like a flash,
Praetorian Foil... Two goblins... now ash.

The distance of Earth in the dark Venus sky,
Gave rise to memories of days long gone by.
When, what through my Praedyth’s Revenge should I see,
But a red Sparrow there... with a Ghost in its lead,
The driver drove on, not a thing was amiss,
I knew in a moment it was St. Everis.
More rapid than rushing Fanatics he came,
He looked at me then, he called me by name;
“Now, Kabr, your friends await not at your leisure,
You must provide us with some Corrective Measure.
To the back of the Well, in the depths of the Vault!
You must find a way! Create some crack, some fault!”

Like a Dreg on a Pike he flew past in a rush,
Though clearly ashamed, Neville never once blushed.
Then up to the door, which I opened with friends,
He carried a pack full of old odds and ends.
I followed him then, with no way I could know,
How I could explain standing right here alone.
If six were required to open the door,
What happened to those I remember no more?
He seemed unaware, or at least unconcerned,
With this Paradox on which my troubled mind yearned.
I shook off these thoughts, it was time to push on,
To follow St. Ev’ris before he was gone

He was dressed in odd armor, his shader obscure,
As a statement of fashion, I saw not the allure.
A bundle of engrams was flung on his back,
And he looked like a pedler just opening his pack.
His eyes-how they cut through my soul with a stare,
Like only Awoken can do, when they dare.
His lips they were blue, like the oceans of home,
No beard on his chin, his hair dusky gloam.
He lead me down paths of impossible age,
Eventually landing upon Gorgons Maze.
His engrams he scattered, where e’r he felt best,
Though he never once touched the Spirit Bloom chest.

Within the Glass Throne, one last time he stood,
His work then completed, he knew it was good.
He looked to me once, with a wink in his eye,
Then pulled out his Ghost, and to orbit did fly.
Unsure what to do, I fell back to the maze,
Attempting to dodge one more Gorgon’s Gaze.
But it snuck up upon me - I knew what to do,
I let loose a rocket - the Wolfpack knew too.
To the wreckage I bound myself, body and soul,
To let in the Light, to bring hope to this hole.
And so I cry out, though I know not to whom,
“Push back the Darkness, Merry Vexmas to you.”

Episode 45: Fruit of the Garden - Part 1

December 20, 2016

Episode 45: The Fruit of the Garden

Welcome Guardians! We're back to our reguleraly scheduled programming! This episode is going to be all about a series of Quests and Missions that open the doors to a lot of the topics we're going to cover in 2017. Lots of those shows will be diving deep into subjects that all get their start right here with this Story Mission. So join us as we pick up a thread we left dangling in our Dark Below / Crota's End episodes and diverge into the other main story in Vanilla Destiny, the search for the Black Garden. We're talking the Deus Exo Stranger Machina, Venus, Vex subtypes, our idiot Ghost, our idiot Cryptarch, Prince Uldren's glass cage of emotion, vague Dr. Strange spoilers, some cool stuff that got left out, and a whole lot more.

Episode 44: These aren’t ideas, they’re nonsense.

December 10, 2016

Episode 44: These aren't ideas, they're nonsense.

Welcome back, Guardians. Ok, first things first... THIS IS NOT A LORE EPISODE. It's been a month since our last show and as we get back into the swing of things, we felt it was worth spending some time back on the mic together and talk about where we've been, what we've been up to, and the future of Ghost Stories. This is a long, rambly episode, so don't exepct a lot of hardcore Destiny talk. If you want a quick TL:DL, you'll find a link below to our site with a post outlining the important parts of this episode.

If you're still reading, well... this episode is a doozy. A LOT has happened in the past month and we're all a bit loopy. No topic is off-limits as we rant and jam on a million different things. This is what a really freeform DGS sounds like. XD We will be back with lore next episode, but for now, we just wanted to get back on the mic and wax silliness.
