I don't know about you all, but my family had a blast playing Rise of Iron last night. I had to make Kara promise not to do anymore story missions until I get home from work. My son Gabe was worried and asked if his Mom and I planned on doing quests after he went to bed. It was clear he thought this would be unfair. I smiled, messed up his hair and said "of course we are son."
One of the best parts of my job is getting to work with developers on games I love. Before PAX I designed a set of Destiny Pinny Arcade pins and they were for sale during the show at the Bungie booth. Well now they are up on the Bungie store! I am really proud of this set and it's pretty special to me. I actually based each of the classes on the characters in my family fireteam. That's Kara's Warlock, Gabe's Titan and my Hunter. These pins are a little bigger than normal and the finish on them is beautiful. They ended up looking like little stained glass windows in my opinion. I posted one of the original sketches over on my Instagram if you're interested:

The Thornwatch Kickstarter is going amazingly well. I have to thank everyone who has backed it or even just grabbed the print and play. We've added a number of big updates to the campaign so if you haven't looked in a few weeks, I'd recommend checking it out again. Also any help you can give us spreading the word would be much appreciated. Penny Arcade has a big audience but we certainly don't get out to all the folks who I think might really dig This game.
