Show Notes – Ep 171 (Invitations of the Nine)

This week, the team walked through the Invitations of the Nine, a recently completed series of mini-quests within Destiny 2. Joining us for this particular conversation is our good friend, DwyerFire. Fair warning that we go on a healthy number of tangents with this particular episode, especially in the connection to the mentioned Tarot cards.

Summary of Episode

A new quest that focuses around Drifter, the Emissary, and the Nine themselves, the Invitations of the Nine is a 9-week event that kicked off each Friday from March 15 to May 10 with the arrival of Xûr. The Invitation costs the Guardian 9 Legendary Shards each weekend, and had an additional interesting twist in each of the weekly events being presented as various Tarot cards (all chosen from the Major Arcana cards).

 

We stand at the precipice of history. What you do here changes the cosmic balance forever. You have made allies of dangerous beings. Gods and god pretenders. How long before your company involves you in something you can’t come back from?
