I heard through one of the various news sources (I forget which) that there was going to be these strategically placed collectible Destiny Cards at Gamescom in Germany. They piqued my interest, hoping for some new tidbit. As expected, cool art, but the tidbits we may have to dig up through tranlation or drawing other connections.
Found these images of 2 of the card backs via eBay Germany, thanks to user 'Hellmika666'

Card 2
"Hüter:
Jäger

Sie finden Möglichkeiten dort, wo andere nicht zu suchen wagen. Sie Sind unsere Wegbereiter, die jedes Mittel einsetzen, um in Grenzland zu überleben

Jäger lernten in der Wildnis zu überleben, indem sie die Energien des Reisenden auf clevere Art manipulierten. Manche befürchten, dass sie zu gefährlich seien, doch ist es ihr Mut, der uns zu den Wundern unseres Goldenen Zeitalters führt."

Shaky Google Translate:
"Guardian:
Hunter

You will find opportunities where others do not dare to look. Are you our pioneer who use every means to survive in the border country

Hunter learned to survive in the wilderness, by manipulating the energies of the Traveler in a clever way. Some fear that they are too dangerous, but it is their courage, which leads us to the wonders of our Golden Age."

Card 3
"Hüter:
Titan

Wir betrachten sie als gesichtslose Ritter, doch tatsächlich wirken sie durch ihre Stärke und Entschlossenheit eher wie Götter.

Titane perfektionieren seit Langem die Fähigkeiten, die ihnen der Reisende gab und geben diese an jede neue Kriegergeneration weiter. Die Gründung der stadt beruht auf ihrer Stärke und sie haben einen Bluteid geleistet, sie zu beschützen."

Shaky Google Translate:
"Guardians:
Titan

We view them as a faceless knight, but actually they work through their strength and determination more like gods.

Titan has long been perfecting the skills that gave them the traveler and pass it on to each new generation of warriors. The foundation of the city based on their strength and they have made a blood oath to protect her."

After I did these ^ I decided to quick check Google. reddit led me to a photo from Twitter user Desti_Nation7 from desti-nation.org Who offered this photo of the front of the cards:

Maybe we can add them all here and get a more accurate translation from someone who speaks German natively? German Lars wo bist du?

Very big for "trading" cards.

Everything's bigger in Old Russia.

I hope the ViDoc is all about the new Destiny trading card game. While Old Russia is in play: lay down Rixis, Archon Slayer for massive damage!

Link to DeeJ article

Only accessible by those who know the link, it's not posted publicly as a "news story".

There are codes on the bottom of those cards and DeeJ says it's cool to share them. I do have a pic of them, can I post them here? (You can find it really easily on bungie.net in the #Destiny forum)

Or anyone who's subscribed to Bungie's RSS feed. The article popped up in my reader last night, and I immediately felt jealous of Gamescom attendees. :)

The Hunter's card translates roughly to:

"You find opportunities where others dare not look. You are our trailblazer, employing every means necessary to survive in the borderlands/frontier/wilds."

"Hunters learned to survive in the wilderness, through clever manipulation of the Traveler's power. Some fear that they are too dangerous, but it is their courage which will guide us to the wonders of our Golden Age."

More Accurate Translations...

I have a German friend who was more than willing to help us out here! Here are what the cards translate to.

As a side note: My friend also mentioned that the Google translations were also not that far off. It's impressive!

Card 2

Guardian:
Hunter

You will find opportunities where others do not dare to look. They are our pioneers who use every means to survive in the border country.

Hunters learned to survive in the wilderness, by manipulating the energies of the Traveler in a clever way. Some fear that they are too dangerous, but it is their courage, which leads us to the wonders of our Golden Age.


Card 3

Guardian:
Titan

We view them as a faceless knights, but actually they seem like gods through their strength and determination.

For a long time Titans have been perfecting the skills given to them by the Travelers and pass them on to every new generation of warriors.
The foundation of the city is based on their strength and they have sworn a blood oath to protect it.

Transcript of the official English version of the cards

by Hypertrooper, Germany, Thursday, August 22, 2013, 14:13 (2954 days ago) @ Pyromancy

They gave away a English version of the cards at the special Community showing. So here are their texts:

Guardian:
Warlock
They look to the intricate powers that live far beyond the Traveler's veil, seeking ways to unlock more of its secrets.
-----
Warlocks were the first to tap the power of the Traveler, wielding its light as they ventured beyond the safety of the Shield. They know each discovery offers new possibilities and may hold the key to our survival.

Visit: bungie.net/gc13 Code: YKA-RJG-MH9

Guardian:
Hunter
They find opportunity where no others even dare to look. They are our trailblazers, surviving the frontier by any means necessary.
-----
Hunters learned to survive the wild through crafty manipulation of the Traveler's energies. Some fear they are too dangerous, but it is their bravery that is leading us to the lost wonders of our Golden Age.

Visit: bungie.net/gc13 Code: 3DA-P4X-F6A

Guardian:
Titan
We like to think they are our faceless knights, but their power and resolve gives them the air of rising gods.
-----
Titans have long honed the power of the Traveler, passing these skills to each new generation of warrior. Their strength gave birth to the City, and they have taken a blood oath to ensure it will always stand strong.

Visit: bungie.net/gc13 Code: MVD-4N3-NKH

Fallen:
Rixis, Archon Slayer
A scourge of Old Russia. Some say he once ruled the House of Devils.
-----
Rixis haunts the ruins of Old Russia. Once he's stirred, keep your distance. He's unpredictably elusive and quick with a pummeling wave of power. Tag him with gunfire and look to your abilities, or just avoid him until you're ready for a real showdown.

Visit: bungie.net/gc13 Code: TCN-HCD-TGY

Destination:
Old Russia
Occupied:
Fallen House of Devils.

-----
They say this was where mankind first reached beyond the confines of Earth. Whatever promise this place once offered is long gone -- now it just holds the bones of that long-forgotten time.

I wanted to get more of these cards, but I was only able to get 3*Hunter/Warlock/Titan sets in German. :( They didn't give the English ones away somehow. You normally get them when you enter the line for the public Destiny presentation.

Does anyone have a picture of the other sides of the other cards? I'm particularly interested in the Fallen card.

thank you both
hmm, there's a symbol above Rixis that looks familiar but that I don't specifically recognize, and to me it seems too angular to fit into the writing system we've seen...
