Ode to Destiny: How one game captured the hearts of many

Three years ago, this very week, you came into our home,
With promises of friends and foes, of fantasies and woe.
With much deliberation, I took my time to choose,
The Titan would be my class, I felt, and with it I could not lose.
With its protective Ward of Dawn and mighty Fist of Havoc,
I knew that the fight ahead, would prove to be dramatic.

Laying dead for many years, don’t really know how many,
With a start we are brought to life, a voice one would call quite cheery.
Our Ghost had come across us, in the vast Cosmodrome,
“Eyes up Guardian” he said with haste, our fate is much our own.
As I head towards the safety of the massive city walls,
The Fallen follow close behind, the air full of their calls.

A few short hours later, after facing Fallen, Hive and more,
The great story had ended, but left me feeling sore.
For now one had to go online, to check out the full story,
Tales hidden out of site, unlocked throughout the glory.
The Exo Stranger leaves us, knowing less than we did before,
She has no time, you see, to explain Destiny’s true lore.

Now it’s time to face our fears, within a group of six,
We must head to the Vault of Glass, and learn a few new tricks.
Facing Templar, Atheon, Praetorians, Gorgons and more,
The Vault of Glass proved a mighty task, which would shake us to our core.
As Guardians around the world found out, Atheon was but a tease,
With Solar Grenades, and perfect placement, we killed him with great ease.

A few months passed and throughout the Tower, Guardians grew uneasy,
Without something new to do, the numbers were decreasing.
The Dark Below introduced a new challenger, someone quite unknown,
Crota was his name, and he had come to take the throne.
TDB, unfortunately, proved to be quite the disappointment,
And with great ease the story with it, was dispatched with much resentment.

Crota’s greatest moment came, and Guardians took the challenge on,
However it didn’t take long to get to Crota, and send him far beyond.
Solo runs, and silly modes started to appear, and made Crota quite the fool,
But for those who wanted loot, and gamerscore galore, he was quite the useful tool.
However until the Wolves appeared, we had nothing better to do,
So spent the next few months, raiding until we were covered in Glowhoo.

Skolas is now our greatest threat, looking for Fallen power,
The Kell of Kells is on the loose, and has eyes upon the Tower.
With the help of Petra Venj, we hunt down the mighty beast,
Not until Venus we catch up with him, but captured him with ease.
Off to the Prison with you, great Kell, where Variks is your keeper,
Dismantle mines, you say? I think I’d rather stay here.

Destiny hadn’t changed much, within the first year of its life,
Restricted storage everywhere, and poor quality of life.
It’s not until Oryx appears, and rings in a new age,
That we start to see, the true Destiny stage.
The Taken King comes bounding in, making changes aplenty,
From questlines, swords, and much more to keep us quite busy.

Oryx is the biggest foe that we have yet to see,
His army of the Taken, are quite the enemy.
A mix of our previous foes, no species is safe,
From Oryx’s murderous calls, and attacks upon the Reef.
It’s time to head into the Dreadnaught, and extinguish this vast foe,
Go left at the penis room, and you’ve not too far to go.

For months and months King’s Fall keeps us busy,
The introduction of challenges, and new loot makes us dizzy.
Destiny is starting to take it shape,
Giving hope to everyone, who has played it in all states.
Eververse caused much controversy, with real money spending,
But once we saw her wares, the silver was soon pending.

The final adventure came, with a story full of sadness,
The mighty Lords of Iron, and how they succumbed to madness.
This madness was unusual, in the way it would take over,
The Fallen were proof of this, with how they used the Siva.
Augmented Dregs and Vandals prowled a now snow-capped Earth,
While Lord Saladin and his mighty few, saw through a full rebirth.

Saladin and Efrideet proved to be too strong,
And were the ones left standing, as Jolder knew where she belong.
It’s time for us to avenge them all, each fallen Lord,
And as we finish our adventure, are given a flaming sword.
We know what we must do, to push back the Splicer threat,
Take down their augmented leaders, in a flurry of blood and sweat.

With Aksis vanquished, and the Lords avenged,
It’s time to take our sweet loot, and start it all again.
For it is time to follow the quest, for a gun that is most sexy,
The one and only Outbreak Prime, with nanites so deadly.
One Hunter, Warlock, and Titan, in a group of three,
Must work out the equation, to hold the gun of glee.

The final challenge we all would face, was not one of destruction,
But the endless grinding, which would end with satisfaction.
The time came to those who wanted, to wear their accomplishments with pride,
And so began the Age of Triumph, and everyone would try.
Fill the book to really show, that you were there from the beginning,
And a t-shirt of great quality, would be yours for the taking.

With little left to do for now, this time is for relaxing,
For Destiny 2 is nearly here, and a new challenge quite taxing.
For Ghaul has reared his ugly head, and wants the Traveller for his own,
The deadly, planet eating Space Rhinos have made their intentions known.
While everything we loved and cherished, lies broken and ablaze,
It’s time for us to take up arms, and destroy Ghaul and his ways…

Thank you for taking the time to read through this rather long piece I put together, to show my love and appreciation for Destiny. As a gamer, Destiny has changed the way I play games forever. Joining the Dames of Destiny has been a real life changer, and through them I have made many new friends, who I can’t wait to start the new adventure with.
