Episode 60: When Some Flab Hits Your Face Like a Big Rock From Space, That's Imoli   Welcome, Guardians! This is officially our first Destiny Lore episode since, um, a long time ago! Today we kick off our examination of Emperor Calus and the history of the Cabal. Part 1 explores Calus's ascent to Emperor, his People's Revolution against the Praetorate, and his eventual downfall in the Midnight Coup. Along the way you can expect plenty of shenanigans and poorly pronounced Latin.   Mentioned in this episode: Destiny Reset Podcast - http://destinyresetpodcast.com/ Gaming Community Expo (Formerly GuardianCon) - https://www.gcxevent.com/ Find us in the world: Twitter @DGhostStories @XRAY441 @GabbleRatchet98 @scoobydeezy @Sherbet_Pop Discord discord.gg/yvuH3Gb Facebook facebook.com/dghoststories Instagram instagram.com/dghoststories

Episode 59: Holy Crap It's Real Welcome, Guardians! It has been forever, but we are finally ready. Ghost Stories is back and ready to dive into the lore of Destiny once again. Its been a long, strange year, but we are excited to be back in the game and on the air. This is a lore free episode, but we wanted to talk through our return, the reasons why, and set expectations in its own standalone episode so it wouldn't bog down next week's release, which will be a full-on deep dive into Emperor Calus and the Cabal.

Episode 58: YOU DIED ADULT LANGUAGE HIDE YOUR KIDS WARNING This is Episode 58 and on this show we’re saying it's Episode 59. What does it mean?! This wasn't the Vault episode I was expecting! In any case, we're finally back behind the mics to take a stab at making a show without the kind of rigid structure you're probably accustomed to from us. We'll talk about why during the show, along with a whole load of other things including where we've been, what else we've been doing, and desperately racking our old man brains trying to figure out what happened between the last episode and this one. We know we forgot stuff. This is essentially DGS VARIETY HOUR PART 2, so set your expectations accordingly. Also, Xray swears a lot. It's been a while.

Episode 57: Saltcast Redux This is Episode 57 and on this show we’re… having a “do over”. We recorded an episode last week (a fortnight ago), a casual three and half hour conversation about the state of Destiny 2. While extremely cathartic, we decided that horse has been pretty much beat to death, and then rezzed by it’s Ghost, and then beat to death again. We’re all well aware of the issues D2 is having and while we’re going to mention them on this show too, the entire show won’t be about them.

Big thanks to SherbetPop for taking the lead and pulling our noses out of the proverbial books to get back behind the mics. Join us as we talk about our early experiences and observations playing Destiny 2. There is a ton of lore and discussions to be had...so don't worry, we will get there. "The lore is lovely, dark and deep, but we have promises to keep, and miles to go before we speak."

Episode 55B: Mo Beta Blues Clues - Part 2...(you're half way there) Welcome back, Guardians! Two shows in two weeks? What is this, 2015? This is the second part of our look at the Destiny 2 Beta and, per usual, what we thought would be a quick show turned into a 3.5 hour epic. We’re taking a look at armor and weapons, talking about some of the call back, references, and story hints contained within. Join us as dropslash complains about flavor text… A LOT, SherbetPop recites classic literature, and Xray tries to keep this fireteam of Hunters on the rails. Maybe we should hire a Titan… NAH! Also, spiders. Enjoy!

Episode 54: Swing Beta Beta - Part 1 Welcome back, Guardians! It’s only been forty five thousand years since the last show, so we decided to make another one! This episode is Part 1 of our look at the Destiny 2 Beta and we’re talking about mostly about lore and story hooks we noticed during our time playing it. We also chat about the Farm and all the potential secrets hidden there. The next episode will be dedicated to the armor and weapons of the beta, which hold some pretty interesting details about what may be in our future. Until then, enjoy drop mentioning how much the flavor text bothers him ad nauseum, Sherbs experience with amazing Australian high speed internet, and Xray just being better than everyone else… like always.

Can a lore show have its own lore? Find out as XRAY and Gabble recount their experiences at GuardianCon 2017. Along the way we'll meet listeners, streamers, friends, and, uh, not friends. We hope these stories are just as fun to listen to as they were to experience. Except one. One of them was really awful to experience. If you are anticipating our return to the depths of the Vault of Glass as much as we are, fear not, dear listeners. We will resume that dive in one week's time!

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: 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.

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: 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.

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.

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.” Contact Us: Web: DestinyGhostStories.com Twitter: @dghoststories Email: destinyghoststories@gmail.com Facebook: /DGhostStories Instagram: @DGhostStories Great Resources: The Ishtar Collective Destiny Timeline r/DestinyLore r/DestinyTheGame

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. 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.

Episode 43: Crota's End - Part 2 It's that time again. Your favorite Elder Scrolls podcast is back! This is Episode V and today we're headed to Skyrim! No... wait... that can't be right... can it? It's totally not. This is Ghost Stories and today we're wrapping up our look at The Dark Below with Part 2 of the first expansion Raid, Crota's End. We're short one Xray on this show, so get ready for off topic shenanigans and rambling as we discuss the mechanics and lore behind the final encounter with The Son of Oryx, Crota. We're talkin' Oversouls, Chalices, Crota's demonic legacy, more church architecture, music, the Ascendent Plane as well as all the cheese to be found on this part of the Moon and how Crota is like, a C- student, at best. This is a long one, so don't yank out the LAN cable mid-encounter.

Episode 42: Crota's End - Part 1 Happy post-Halloween, Festival of the Lost, Samhain, Dios de Muertos! Last week we wrapped up The Dark Below and stopped right at the edge of the pit. Today... we're jumping in. This episode is Part 1 of our look into Crota's End, The Dark Below's Raid. We're covering the initial descent, the Stills-formerly-known-as-the-Abyss, picking locks, gothic architecture, lots and lots of Moon cheese, s-words, and a ton more. We also check in with First Crota along the way and listen to the laments of their ill-fated leader, Eriana-3, with the assistance from the vocal stylings of @neonbath (Chioma ffrom our Vex Fragment episodes). It's going to be a good one Guardians, sharpen up those blades.

Episode 41: The Dark Below - Pt. 2 Season 2 of Destiny Ghost Stories continues! This week we're finishing our look at Destiny's first major expansion, The Dark Below, but not before we do a full breakdown of all the major Hive Sects and their significance in the game. After that's out of the way we cover the two big TDB post-Mission Quests, "Extermination" and "Urn of Sacrifice", which culminate in a quest that is no longer available in-game, "Ritual of the Forsaken". We've also got the Union of Light Contest winners and all the usual sidetrack and derailing you've come to expect from the DGS Crew, including a lovely chat about one of our favorite events in Destiny, good ol' "Enemies Moving Against Each Other". It's a fun ride that takes us right up to the pinnacle of The Dark Below, Crota's End. Enjoy! Episode References: Penny Arcade: "Vorvax, The Forgotten" Union of Light Contest: Winners!

Episode 40: The Dark Below - Pt. 1 Welcome to Season 2 of Destiny Ghost Stories! This week we're not talking Rise of Iron... well, not directly. We know, we know, it's the new hotness, but it's also not even close to finished and there's still so much we don't know. So, as we kick off Y2 of DGS, we're going to be looking back at a lot of the important content that lead us to Rise of Iron and how they really set the stage for what we're experiencing now. It's going to be a big build up and we'll definitely be talking RoI along the way as we explore all the divergent story threads. To kick it all off, we're starting with the first Destiny expansion, The Dark Below. There is a lot in TDB that had major repercussions for the world of Destiny and many that are still ongoing in the current story. So join us as we explore some of the Guardian's first encounters with both the Hive and the Fallen, the first real clashes between the Hive and the Fallen themselves, more of Eris's craziness, more of Toland's awesomeness, the differences between pre and post Taken King quests, questions that never got answered, some that did, and a whole lot more.

Episode 39: Rise of Hype! Incoming Transmission, Guardians! With Rise of Iron less than 24 hours away, this episode is all about recappping what we know so far, posing important questions for what we don't, and taking a look at some of the implications for both. We talk a bit about the #TRANSMISSION event, the major Rise of Iron characters, what the SIVA threat may mean for Humanity, the lore behind critical events that have already happened, and a whole lot more. It's an episode full of announcements, questions, and things to look out for while we play. We are super excited to dig into Rise of Iron and we hope you are to!

Episode 38.5: Endotics We did it! It was a monumental undertaking, (we'll talk stats next episode) but we made it to the end of Exotics! This will be the last Exotic focused episode for a good long while, as we have now covered every Exotic weapon and armor in the game... and even some that aren't. This episode is picking right up where the last one left off, covering Titan Helmets and Boots. We discuss the super recent changes to the Mk.44 Stand Asides, the power of Peregrine Greaves, the missing Dunemarchers, the deep lore of Helm of Saint-14, and a whole lot more.

Episode 38: Traveling to Exotic places, meeting new and exciting aliens, and then murdering them. Well, we’ve come this far. It’s time to end this insanely long run of our look at Exotics with the first of two episodes devoted to Titan Exotics. To help us out with this, we recruited two hardcore Titan mains, dropslash’s clanmates, Nightfork and Crono42. We’re talking Body Armor, Gloves, and Marks this episode so get ready for an Armamentarium love-fest, airborne police acrobatic shenanigans, witch hunting, sweet holograms, MOAR HEAVY AMMO, butts, shaders, and a ton of other hilarious topics. Laugh along with us as Xray trolls us from the notes, we discuss a bit of our gaming origins, Guardian names, and learn how Sherb makes a bit of Glimmer on the side. It’s Titan Exotics, Part 1!

Another double episode week! We're cranking hard to get every Exotic covered before Rise of Iron, so this week we're bringing another lore master (and the show's #1 fan) onboard to help us finish up Hunter Exotics and to give us a decidedly non-Hunter viewpoint on things. We're so happy to welcome Capt. Kex of the L.ORG Chart project to the show! His keen Warlock mind keeps us on track this episode as we talk about more Dark Souls references, spider biology, hilarious 90's movies, amazing 40's movies, poop bugs, Ahamkara jewelry, commiserate over the sad state of Gunslinger "adjustments", and a bunch of other ridiculous things that frame the history, lore, and secrets of some of our favorite Hunter Exotics. This is a long one, enjoy!

Suffice to say, on this tangent filled episode we're talking Hunter Exotic Body Armor, Boots, and Cloaks... oh man, THE CLOAKS. Damn, we're good looking. Ok ok, lets keep this point! (the point of our sweet knives). Join us as we dig up obscure references to raspberries, do some radiant Italian (blade) dancing, try to figure out who Eao was, take a look into Sherb's cloak closet, talk about all the things Radiant Dance Machine's can't do, and listen as drop descends into madness chasing his white whale, Alpha Lupi. INTELLECT. We also have a special message from GabbleRatchet about his amazing time at Destiny Community Con. Episode References: Husky Raid: Saw something weird at the Venus Gate Lord...

Episode 36: Exotic Sandals Vacation MOAR EXOTICS! We’re really jamming to get them all in before Rise of Iron, so we’re moving on to Armor. In what was originally supposed to be a single episode focusing on Warlock Exotics, we somehow managed to drag it out to a 2-parter. We were missing Gabble (our resident Warlock) for this episode, so we hope you like dropslash’s (part time Warlock) voice because you’re going to hear him say “uh” 15,000 times. We chat about creatively naming 3 different Exotics “Nemesis Light”, “Light Beyond”, and “Light Beyond Nemesis” (seriously), lava stones, [...]

Episode 35.5: Strength of the Pack  Well, we made it all the way here. The last of the Exotic Heavy Weapons gets a special show all it’s own. That’s right, this episode is all about Gjallarhorn. Per usual, we’re diving into the history of Gjallarhorn, both in the lore and among the Guardians who wield it, but on this show we also invited our listeners and members of the community to send us their stories. So join us as we tell some truly legendary tales of loss, love, engrams, pronunciation, strange coins, glory days, rage, revenge, regret, insane luck, and a whole lot more as we look back on the Exotic that made us gods of the Year 1 battlefield. Huge thanks to everyone who sent us amazing stories for this episode!

Episode 27.5 (06/05/2016) - This War Is Love This week we’re picking up right where we left off last time with Ghost Fragment: Vex 5. These series of entries are really the genesis of what we believe to be the modern Future War Cult, and this last one really establishes a lot of themes we’re going to encounter when we get to the FWC in the New Guardian Age. We discover the origins of RECORD and CHASM, the Device, it’s early subjects, Rasputin’s involvement, and how Maya’s love sets her on a path to defy all of space and time in an attempt to be with Chioma again.

This series of entries is really the genesis of what we believe to be the modern Future War Cult, with its origins stretching back deep into the Golden Age of Venus and the research of the scientists of the Ishtar Collective. It’s a fascinating tale and it’s repercussions could reshape what we know of the Vex, the FWC, the Exo Stranger, the Device and so much more.
