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 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 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.

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.

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.

Episode 27 (05/29/2016) - The Once and Future War Cult
This week brings us to Part 3 of our look at the Factions of the City, which can only mean Future War Cult. Before we do though, we’re presenting this special episode covering the first four Ghost Fragment: Vex Grimoire entries. 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.

Join us as we discuss the origins of Dead Orbit, the tenets and philosophies of the Arachs, the mysteries surrounding “The Fleet”, some very interesting Grimoire cards and what they may mean for the future of Destiny, and a whole lot more. We’re all also very punchy this episode (since we missed a week) so stay tuned for a colossal amount of sidetracking, derailing, and outtakes while we discuss Arach Jalaal’s mysterious puddle, Gabbleratchet’s horrible face, pronounce Russian names poorly, and all agree that Cayde-6 said it best with “I gotta get out of this Tower.”

Episode 58: YOU DIED

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.
