Not too long ago, I lamented the fact that the DBO Fan Fiction section was somewhat neglected. Ragashingo took this comment pretty seriously, and did two things: he submitted a new story called 'The Red War' for you to read, and he announced a new writing challenge he calls 'No Longer Neglected'. Twice a month he'll issue a writing prompt; submissions will be added to the Fan Fiction Archive here. Winners will receive loot directly from Raga. Sounds like a win all the way around! The first prompt went live this morning - you can find it on our forum. Join in! (While we're talking about Raga's writing, you might want to also swing by the Bite-Sized Backstory section - I've been remiss about mentioning recent entries, and you can find 6 new - well, not-front-paged - entries in the archive!)
One of the things that tickles me the most is how people find creative ways to challenge themselves within the confines of a game environment. Two examples surfaced this week that I really enjoyed. WiLLiSGaming and crew successfully completed the Vault of Glass with a Sparrow (think about that for a minute)... while DattoDoesDestiny and friends made Crota kneel using only the exotic weapon No Land Beyond. (This is akin to knocking down a building with a Tonka bulldozer.) When the game doesn't provoke you enough out of the box... don't worry, there's always some new mountain to climb! (Thanks to Gamespresso for the heads-up on the first video, and to Korny for the heads-up on the second video.)
It's time for Week 6 of the DBO Challenge! Check this thread for details, then show us your favorite television show through some (intentionally) low-fidelity art! While you're at it, don't forget to read back through Week 5's weapon ideas and all of the crazy stories they inspired.
(If you're in the mood for something off-topic and of a higher-quality than MS Paint usually provides, be sure to check out this gorgeous 10-page preview of "Mayflower", an original comic from our resident artist Leviathan.)
The DBO Challenge returns! Check the thread for highlights from week four's limerick competition and learn about the fresh challenge for week five, where you can earn points by inventing a new weapon for Destiny and giving it a backstory. Get to it!
We missed it on Monday, but Bungie tweeted about an Earth Day-inspired "artist challenge" that they have going on right now:
Enjoy, then go get those paint brushes warmed-up!
ncsuDuncan wrapped-up Week 2 and kicked-off Week 3 of the DBO Challenge last night.
