We called it the Traveler, and its arrival changed us forever. Great cities were built on Mars and Venus; Mercury became a garden world. Human lifespan tripled. It was a time of miracles. We stared out at the galaxy and knew that it was our Destiny to walk in the light of other stars.

But the Traveler had an enemy. A Darkness - which had hunted it for eons, across the black gulfs of space, centuries after our Golden Age began. This Darkness... found us. And that was the end of everything.


That is, until Peter Dinklage Nolan North found you, Guardian!

Destiny: Penny Arcade G&T Saves the Universe and Everything in It is an online multiplayer action role-playing sci-fi-fantasy *deep breath* first-person shooter for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Xbox One, and Xbox 360 and the first title in a proposed 10-year, zillion-dollar franchise from Bungie and Activision. It’s MMO-like – think gear, skill trees, leveling up, and party play – with an emphasis on exploration and discovery. As of September 20, 2016, we have entered Year Three of Destiny, which has ushered in a host of new content, quests, gear, weapon balance tweaks, and a brand new raid.

Still relevant: The game is set in our own solar system, 700 years in the future, following a prosperous period of exploration and colonization ushered in by the arrival of the “Traveler,” a mysterious celestial body (pictured above). The Golden Age came to an abrupt end as a result of a momentous event called “the Collapse,” a calamity that wiped out human colonies everywhere. Humanity has retreated to the Last City on Earth, our shared home and the launching point for our journey back to the stars, and from within its walls, we have begun to rebuild. We have begun to fight back. But even as we stand tall, our Light visible in the canyons and craters of far-off worlds, blinding our enemies with its brilliance, the Darkness threatens to close in around us. And everything we know about our enemy is about to change.

Rise of Iron

In Year One of Destiny, the Wise and Noble Guardians of Pax Arcadia traveled through space and time in defense of Human, Awoken, and Exo, rising to meet every challenge and ultimately emerging from a year's worth of adventures bearing the spoils of war and the bounty of exotic weapons, sturdy and stylish armor, fortune, and fame. The Tower stands today because of our bravery and sacrifice in that first year. Our legend is known far and wide across the bloodied fields of the Crucible. We have earned the favor of the Queen and have protected her Reef from those who sought to tear it apart.

At times, our successes have seemed inevitable, almost routine. We've traveled backward and forward through time; we've crushed our foes underfoot in encounter after encounter; we've destroyed the heart of a god - more than once. But we have faced trials as well, true challenges that required complete cooperation and tested our limits, especially in the depths of the Dark Below, face-to-hideous-face with Crota, Hive Prince and Son of Oryx. In time, he fell like the rest. We took his wretched, cursed husk and held it aloft as a trophy.

In Year Two, we braved the Dreadnaught, a terrifying frontier, and we beat back the Taken, a twisted menace. We competed against our fellow Guardians, sharpening ourselves into efficient, highly coordinated soldiers of the Light. We returned to the Prison of Elders and tore through its denizens, leaving our mark on its every arena. We remained relentless, undeterred, in the face of overwhelming odds, and together we struck down humanity's greatest threat to date: Oryx, the Taken King. He refused to tolerate our insolence; we refused to tolerate his existence.

Now, in Year Three, a new threat has emerged. Fallen mutants, scavenging the tombs of the Golden Age, have unearthed a plague more dangerous than even they understand. Corrupted enemies bear down on the walls of the Last City. Lord Saladin has called upon us to embark on the next step of our journey and to take up the mantle of the Iron Lords. We must retreat; we must regroup; we must rediscover the history of the Iron Lords and continue their legacy.

Eyes up, Guardians. Our work is just beginning.

Join the ranks of Pax Arcadia! Our clan is on both systems!

oys3p1lw64ty.png

We've assembled a Bungie.net group - and within that group, a PlayStation clan and an Xbox clan - so that PA G&Ters can play together. We're Pax Arcadia, and we're currently making our way through endgame content and crushing the Crucible in six-man fireteams on a nightly basis!

Edit (Sept. 20, 2016): We presently have room in the PA clan on Xbox One, but we're full up at the 100-person cap on the PS4 side for both PA and PA2. That being said, we're typically cycling people out for inactivity lasting over six months and spots tend to open up frequently! Follow the instructions below!

To join:
1. Send @GMaster7 (on the PS side) or @ObiFett (on the Xbox side) - or preferably, both - a PM, letting us know that you're joining the group(s) and applying to the clan.
2. Join the Bungie.net group for Pax Arcadia (right here, at this link). If necessary, you can hit up the group for Pax Arcadia II (right here), either instead or in addition, and join that, too. You don't need admin approval to join the groups.
3. Once you're in one or both Bungie.net groups, click "Set as PlayStation Clan" in the banner if you're on PS3/PS4 or "Set as Xbox Clan" in Pax Arcadia's banner if you're on 360/XB1 to officially request admission to that group's respective clan (either PA or PA2). If you're on PSN, you'll probably need to apply to PA2, the overflow clan. If you're on Xbox, you can apply to PA and don't need to mess with PA2.
4. Add yourself to the Pax Arcadia Mega-Roster that we've created to keep track of membership. Use the tabs at the bottom to select your console, and put yourself at the bottom of your tab's list. We'll bump you up to your proper alphabetical placement.
5. If you've sent us a PM and added yourself to the Mega-Roster, we'll accept you as soon as we can.
6. Friend some PAers, hop online, and take to the skies in the name of Pax Arcadia!

Find teammates with The100.io!

If you're looking for teammates for any activity, check out PA's console-specific groups on The100.io, right here:
•Pax Arcadia - Xbox One: https://www.the100.io/groups/1397
•Pax Arcadia - Xbox 360: https://www.the100.io/groups/1398

    Mostly yes - it's missing Extended Mag, so I don't know how many rounds it will hold. If you like scouts, get that gun! It hits so hard it's like a long-range hand cannon. =D

    Extended mag takes it from 10 to 16 so its a pretty big increase

    But I think it would still be worth it with triple tap. Plus it seems like it has the sights that everyone wants, Torch, while the one I have with extended mag has Candle (which I like still)

    If you're going to trade in Extended Mag for any perk, I think Hand-Laid Stock is the one I'd want most. I realize that extra stability on a slow-firing Scout is a bit like putting bacon on your bacon, but I really like bacon.

    I took that analogy to a weird place. And now I'm hungry.

    Yay, new Destiny thread! perfect time for me to jump back in before RoI launches!! so i've been away awhile. not played much since the last big content drop, not sure if there's been any smaller additions to the game since then. only kinda followed the RoI news so not 100% up to date on that either. what do i need to know fellow Guardians?

    also, would be nice to finally get the Touch of Malice for my Titan before the expansion hits. and to unlock the 3rd sub-class for my Hunter, but god does he have a tonne of old story content to do before that happens, and i'm really not a fan of Hunters.

    but other than that, looking forward to jumping back in, exploring the new area, killing cyborg Fallen.

    Yes... always yes. Watching you guys play gives me ideas of how to play more effectively (movement, positioning, when to rush, etc).

    Somewhat related... after watching some of the videos you guys had posted recently and seeing how some of you Xbros approach when shoulder charging I thought I'd see what I could manage. Only had time for one match before bed (inferno 6v6) but I ended up with 17 kills (9 of those were shoulder charges?) and I topped the rest of my teams score by a pretty decent margin. (Running Shoulder charge, Armamentarium, Chaperone, Hung Judy).

    I even managed to evade a couple of enemies using charge and then finish them off with my Chaperone after I'd landed, like I've seen posted in here.... I was super happy with myself (even if my team lost... I still kicked ass).

    E - Also, after watching your vids Siri I really want a well rolled Grasp. Just seems sooooo good.

    So I've been away from Destiny for a while due to to several life events (most good!) and I'm looking to jump back. My tag in-game says Pax Arcadia II and I'm on the spreadsheet - is it safe to assume I'm still in the group/clan (not sure of the distinction)? I wasn't sure if I was removed due to inactivity.

    More importantly, is there a link between the Pax Arcadia official clan/group and Pax Arcadia on the100.io? I am unsure if I need to join that separately as I have never used it.

    Looking forward to having some adventures again! I'm around light level 291, so still plenty of stuff for me to do. Any particular activities that would be useful/fun until RoI?

    Fun times last night in VoG with NATburn. I think my LL was ~180-ish while rocking old-school guns like Fatebringer, Vision of Confluence, Swordbreaker, Praedyth's Revenge, and Gjallarhorn. It reminded me that Gunslinger is still awesome, and that I miss Chains of Woe and Gunslinger's Trance.

    Looks like you're still in PA2. Feel free to request to join PA1 on Bungie.net (http://www.bungie.net/en/Clan/Detail/120365) and I'll approve, as we've been trying to condense the two rosters into one as much as possible. Then again, clan services are all coming offline tomorrow in preparation for Rise of Iron, but... I'd still do that now.

    No official/formal link between the clan and the100.io group, but that remains the best way to schedule activities in advance. I rejoined, because it may be increasingly useful moving forward, with fewer people playing. Or maybe everyone's going to jump back in for RoI. Anyway, welcome back!

    Edit: Btw, the distinction between group and clan is that you can belong to as many groups as you want, and they don't have a member cap... but you can only join one clan, and that's what shows up on your in-game tag. Also, in RoI, you're going to get a clan roster (which is why we're trying to condense into PA1). Clans have a 100-member cap, though.

    And as far as fun activities to do before RoI, I would just goof off, do some pvp, raise your LL some, do level 41 PoE, and then CoE once at 315+ LL.

    Most of us are in full waiting game for RoI or doing minor prep stuff like

    I also realize from watching these videos that some of the players in-thread have their sensitivity set at something close to 17/10.

    And @Sirialis ... do you just mash your trigger, or is there an Elite controller function that lets you shoot that quickly? I think you're dumping 5 rounds for every 3 that I can crank out of a Mida.

    "Hung Jury Roll" is Extended Mag. Really don't understand why anyone uses Hand-Laid Stock. It's completely stable as it is, no reason to take a range penalty. And most importantly, Extended Mag allows you to get the most out of Triple Tap.

    Hung Jury Base Mag: 17 + 8 Free = 25
    Hung Jury Extended Mag: 21 + 10 Free = 31 (Net +6)
    Cocytus Base Mag: 10 + 4 Free = 14
    Cocytus Extended Mag: 16 + 7 Free = 23 (Net +9)

    Deaths:
    * Bogey was murdered by Obi's malicious Sparrow usage
    * Obi fell to his death due to aforementioned Sparrow usage
    * Dongs fell soon after for reasons?
    * Obi died due to hitting a rock at the wrong angle when falling 5 feet in the Templar's Well
    * Booker died like a hero, courageously Gjallarhorning the inside of his Detain bubble. Saladin would be proud!
    * Obi fell on the jumping puzzle, knowing it was going to happen

    OK. I am tight on time tomorrow night (I'll be able to make Motorboat Kitten after all) but we'll see about it then?

    E - Also, after watching your vids Siri I really want a well rolled Grasp. Just seems sooooo good.

    Not going to disagree, but don't forget who's wielding it.

    Oh completely... I'm pretty sure Siri or any of our Lighthouse frequenting Pax Arcadians could rock most enemy fireteams at my play level with only a spoon equipped (Ladle of Crota?).

    I also realize from watching these videos that some of the players in-thread have their sensitivity set at something close to 17/10.

    And @Sirialis ... do you just mash your trigger, or is there an Elite controller function that lets you shoot that quickly? I think you're dumping 5 rounds for every 3 that I can crank out of a Mida.

    Mash the trigger, Grasp shoots pretty fast and with Counterbalance I can usually keep it stable anyway, I use a sensitivity of 5.

    I'm always striving to improve, I'm nowhere near where I want to be, I'm experiencing some inconsistency in Crucible/Trials lately, feels like the exact same scenario with the same choices will play out differently at times... Because latency.

    Hoping my new 80/10 (up from 20/2 and at no additional cost!) connection that will be ready in a few days will make a decent impact on my Destiny PvP.

    Just miffed I have to wait 3 weeks to get back to Trials to see if I'm right...

    I don't know if this is common knowledge, but you can queue your shots with any semi-auto gun.

    Feather the trigger to fire one round
    > immediately release trigger
    >> hold trigger until 2nd round fires
    > immediately release the trigger as 2nd round fires
    >> hold trigger until 3rd round fires
    > etc etc ...

    The above method guarantees maximum rate of fire. Much easier to do with slower-firing weapons, but doable with any semi-auto.

    You don't get to make that joke...

    Also, I think its deliciously ironic that NATBurn makes fun of me falling all the time every once in a while, yet relies on me to run the spark in each and every Oryx run during which I never fall

    I have a flight to catch Thursday evening, but hopefully I'll have time for Crooooota!

    Also, @Peen, sorry, but I'll be out of town on Friday and won't be able to join you on your first Vault run. :(

    If I were a graphic design sort of guy, I'd make you a signature that reads "ObiFett" where the cross-bar thingers on the lower-case T's are actually the blur/motion lines while some tiny guardian is falling off to the right of your name. So it looks like "ObiFell" and a dude falling.

    Can anybody else visualize it? xD

    <3 ya Obi
