Cabal (Approved)

Reason: This is an extremely comprehensive and well-constructed article based on what we know from the Cabal Grimoire cards, Guardian equipment, and various quotes and mission dialogues, especially given that they are one of the least known races in Destiny compared to others like the Hive and the Fallen; even the Vex, as alien as they are, have more stuff to their name than the Cabal. In light of all this, the article has been well-sourced, full of images, and illustrative quotes heading each section.

Dreadnaught (Approved)

Reason: After a complete and thorough reconstruction spanning two days, the Dreadnaught is now fully sourced and filled with images, and has a proper template outfitting it in addition to all of the prerequisite sections filled out, including: article introduction, history, design, interior, activities, and trivia.

I'll also note that it was User:Observance who inspired me to reconstruct the Dreadnaught article with his insightful edits. I credit him here. stickΔαντε τηε Γηοστ Ι ωονδερ ιφ Ικορα γιϝες ηυγς το Γηοστσ. Ηεη... ανψωαψς, νιξε ωορκ. Τηις ις ωηατ Ι υσεδ. 23:59, 3 May 2017 (EDT)

Books of Sorrow

Reason: Thanks to the collaborative efforts of several users this page has become a true article worthy of recognition. According to the Special:LongPages it is just under 4000 bytes smaller than the actual Grimoire Books of Sorrow, yet is fantastically well-written and comprehensive after numerous revisions. Designed to be a "Cliffs notes", this article fulfils that purpose by describing in laymen terms what is happening in the Books, allowing both the casual fan and experienced "loremaster" to find their way around.

It contains a short summary with link brackets to each section for easier navigation; a roster for describing the various characters and other entities which have prominence in the Books; the synopsis itself, and a Trivia section which in addition to describing interesting things also contains a section which explains many of the hard-to-understand or unfamiliar terms that have become synonymous with Destiny lore. Its main source has been linked in the very top of the article for people wanting to read the transcript for themselves, so that fulfils citation requirements.
