Ep 96 - Lore Dive (Stormcaller)

Episode 96 brings Blue and Justin back together to discuss the electrifying figures of the Stormcaller Warlocks. Blue also takes a few minutes at the start of the show to discuss some developments that had been posted about over on the website for those who might not be in the Discord chat (jump in if you're not!) - so please be sure to weigh in on that as well! As always, the pair bring a sense of humor to the topic, and we truly hope you enjoy the conversation about those wielders of space magic who have a strong tendency to make it rain.

Ep 95 - Lore Update (Dead Orbit)

Episode 95 brings Blue, Green, and Justin back together to discuss those in the City who look beyond. Beyond the walls, beyond the earth, beyond even the Traveler and the supposed salvation that it offers humanity. They see another future among the light of other stars. They see the Traveler and Earth itself as nothing more than celestial bodies caught in a dead orbit - a name which, appropriately they have taken for their own.

And yes, Justin and Green have decided to go with the themed names - so bear with Blue while he tries to keep up with the shenanigans that are happening in the Discord server.

Extra Lore 17 - Horizon Zero Dawn

Our 17th installment of the Extra Lore series brings Blue, Green, Justin, and special guest co-host InfestedPotatoe together to take an introductory look into the rich world of Horizon Zero Dawn. While most of this episode is concerned with a general summary of the title (small spoiler warnings), there is also a discussion on the details of the different types of mechanical figures, the various purposes of the subroutines experienced in the game, as well as a very brief look at the history of the story-world that led to the events that the players experience in game.

Ep 94 - Lore Dive (Defenders)

Episode 94 brings Blue, Green, Justin, and returning special guest co-host, PurpleChimera together to chat about the Defender Titans - those stalwart warriors of the Light who protect the Last City from the forces of Darkness and who literally put themselves in the path of any who would do their allies harm. There are a few great side conversations (one of which is the exploration of Facebook that Justin details out...you have to hear that one to believe it) in this episode - so definitely be sure to stick around for the whole chat!

Ep 93 - Lore Dive (Bladedancer)

Episode 93 brings Blue, Green, Justin, and returning special guest co-host, PurpleChimera back together to chat about the Bladedancer Hunters - and discuss other important things (tangents are Purple's favorite thing EVER). Justin amazes the crowd with his knowledge (and excitement) of how the abilities of the Bladedancer can be seen in our world via the electric currents, Blue (as always) dives into a tangent about the interesting trivia of the Mask of the Third Man, all the while Green and Purple put up a valiant fight to keep everyone on topic (they're really good at this, folks).

Ep 92 - Lore Update (Cabal Empire)

Episode 92 brings Blue, Green, and Justin back together to discuss the various ideas that have been debated about the Cabal since year one as well as begin the discussion about Ghaul, the newest adversary in Destiny 2. The team enjoys the antics of Justin's inability to make his computer behave as well (auto muting is a real thing, people) and even get to discuss a fair amount of Roman history (forgive Blue for the tangents). 

 Be sure to also stick around until the end of the show for a really special announcement from Blue.

Extra Lore 16 - Halo

Our 16th installment of the Extra Lore series brings Blue, Green, Justin, and returning special guest co-host PenHalo together to discuss the universe of Halo - specifically the mysteries of Dr. Catherine Halsey, the Spartan-II program, and Cortana. The intial conversation focuses around a recap of the timeline discussed in the previous Halo Extra Lore episode, but once we have the basic facts mostly out of the way, the debate over the morality of Halsey truly starts. We would love to hear your thoughts on this one especially - so be sure to send 'em in!

Ep 91 - Lore Dive (City Festivals)

Episode 91 brings Blue, Green, & Justin back together to chat about the lore behind the handful of festivals that are celebrated in the Tower of Guardians overlooking the Last City - starting with the figure who seems to thread all these smaller stories together, Eva Levante. The team is glad to be headed back to a more normal schedule after the brief insanity of the Destiny 2 Reveal and then Guardian Con 2017 quickly afterwards (stories weave themselves in from those still) - and we're excited to see what the future has in store.

Ep 90 - Lore Dive (Destiny Universe & Dimensions)

Episode 90 brings Blue and Green together to chat about the amazing universe in which Destiny operates and the various dimensions which blend together to offer such a rich source of entertainment for all of us. Prepare for some deep dives into theories on the nature of the Void, the perception of time, and even a summary of string theory as they all apply to the universe of Destiny. And remember: We are ill-equipped to understand [entities] that [defy] simple causality. Let us accept these limitations and proceed...and accept that all of this is speculation.

Ep 89 - Lore Dive (Deep Stone Crypt)

Episode 89 brings Blue, Green, and Justin together to talk some deep theories about the Deep Stone Crypt and it's connections to the Exos within Destiny. The team talks about the brief nods that the Grimoire offer to this infamous subroutine - and then dive into the theories (Why are Exos made the way they are? What is the connection between Bray and these machines of war? What exactly is the Deep Stone Crypt?). Get ready for a trip through the theories that the community has about the tower which calls to the Exos in their dreams.
