Destiny 7th Anniversary

Cool writeup including a story about the live gameplay reveal that almost went horribly awry.

A snippet of one of the word vignettes

Silent space. A dead moon sits cleaved in the starred sky like some accident of the gods. Regolith and rock suspended.

Above. A perfect circle gouged into the surface, ringed with dense inscrutable geometry. Dust slowly pours over the edge of a gaping maw like a slow and giant hourglass.

Descent. Dust turns to mist, mist turns to thick, unnatural fog. An endless chasm bored to the very heart of the moon.

Darkness. A flicker of light. Shadows dance across shifting slab. Six runes ignite, tracing the ground like some kind of cosmic gasoline. Cröta stands between. The Relic held. An ancient and evil sound erupts from even farther below. The ground begins to open. A tomb.

Upwards. A Dozen eyes shimmer in the black.

Upwards. Hundreds more.

Thousands.

THE DARK BELOW
