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.

Ep 88 - Lore Update (Guardians)

Episode 88 brings Blue, Green, and Justin together to chat about the updated information we have on our Guardians (along with some other...stuff). Get ready for some more fun chatter about things (including, but definitely not limited to: mental processing and how your brain works, the 'starfish of death' and how it affects Ghosts, Blue not understanding electrical terminology, and questions on Ghosts's emotional stability).

Extra Lore 15 - Titanfall

Our 15th installment of the Extra Lore series brings Blue, Green, Justin, and special guest co-host Taylor-B together to chat about the rich details of the Titanfall universe - a game which got a pretty bad reputation from it's first title, but managed to completely reverse directions with the second title. As you'll find here, the details are immensely intricate - in a gameworld that is presented in a very episodic fashion - and draw from a number of different influences (at least it seems to from the hosts's points of view). Starting off with a general summary view of the Titanfall universe, the team quickly dives into a summary of the two titles storylines - which if you haven't had the chance to experience yet, definitely comes recommended by Taylor and Justin.

Behind the Scenes: Artwork w lazesummerstone

The fifth installment of our Behind the Scenes series gave us the chance to sit down with lazesummerstone (Jake) to chat about the questions that our Discord server had about artwork - specifically about comics and video game concept art. It was a true pleasure getting the chance to chat with Jake (also, this was our first BtS episode that we recorded live - which was a treat in itself) about how he approaches the challenges that he faced in getting started and still comes up against even today.

Ep 87 - Lore Update (The City)

Episode 87 brings Blue, Green, and Justin together to chat about the updates that we've gotten over the last few months concerning the Last City within Destiny. Due to a lot of the new information actually being contained throughout a variety of fragments of different Grimoire cards and items instead of any signle card, the conversation does meander through topics a bit - so enjoy a conversation that delves into the philosophy of the Factions, the implications of the political structures of the Consensus, and even a bit of a chat about the underlying nature of the Guardians themselves (which will also be next week's topic!).

 

Oh - and we have a new website.

Ep 86 - Lore Dive (Clovis Bray)

Episode 86 brings Blue, Green, and special guest co-host TTL Goose together to chat about a few different things. Fair warning, this episode is a bit longer than usual, because we actually start off on something of a non-lore note: Goose's Destiny 2 reveal experience and some amazing details about the well known app, Destiny Item Manager (DIM). Once we get done hyping over the reveal (we know - we're still excited, okay?!) - we get down to brass tacks and open Pandora's box: we start talking about the infamous Clovis Bray. 

It's a good chat - but get ready for some deep tangents and debates on the importance of morality (queue Jurassic Park theme - believe me, you'll understand when you get to the part in the episode).

Ep 85 - Lore Dive (Nightstalkers)

Episode 85 brings Blue, Green, Justin, and special guest co-host RYNO-666 together to chat about the Nightstalker Hunters. But first...we chat a bit about the recent Destiny 2 reveal that Justin had a chance to attend (we get a bit distracted by the hype...but it's a good conversation, so Blue left it in). 

RYNO and Blue chat a bit about the potential nature of the Void in regards to the Destiny universe as well as the potential impact of the nature of that flavor of Light has upon the subclasses that utilize it.

Ep 84 - Lore Dive: Sunbreakers

Episode 84 brings Blue, Green, and Justin back together to chat about the lore that we have currently about those indomitable figures of titanic might, the Sunbreakers. The team (admittedly not Titans - fair warning) dives into the information that is presented within the Grimoire, items, and even a few specific missions (thank you, Bungie for those new sub-class missions!!) to dig out some intriguing nuggets of information about these fiery warriors. We also strongly recommend you stick around after the signoff - there might be a 'googly eyed' surprise for everyone.

Extra Lore 14 - Forgotten Realms

Our 14th installment of the Extra Lore series brings Blue, Green, Justin, and returning special guest co-host Damoel together to chat about the immense world of the Forgotten Realms (and the general Dungeons & Dragons series). Join the team and get ready to gear up with some good, basic knowledge (and some great side stories) about the world of Forgotten Realms and the joys of tabletop gaming. Also - Justin needs help figuring out what bits are on Twitch.
