It's come to my attention just recently that we don't have a dedicated thread for talking about the beautiful Canon Fodders that our Lorelord GrimBrother One does his absolute best to put out for us on a weekly basis to give dedicated Halo Universe fans that extra pinch to get them through this wait for Halo 5: Guardians. Each week Grim does things like answer community lore questions, interview writers and other employees from 343 Industries, and lets us know when Universe entries have been added or updated. He even gives some hints in his Canon Fodders for what's to come sometimes. This is why he is our Lorelord.

 

The latest Canon Fodder - Infinity & Beyond - was a really juicy one. We got a good interview with Duffy Bourdreau, writer of Halo: Escalation, about what some of his favorite parts of working for 343 are and about Escalation of course.

Grim went more in depth on Fleet Battles which is really starting to pique my interest!

 

This week we finally see BB's in-universe appearance, he is as you would imagine trust me. And Iona's entry was updated but don't read if you haven't read Saint's Testimony yet. Which you should have! It's only a dollar!

 

Lastly though, something that I mentioned earlier was about how he even sometimes leaves hints in his Canon Fodders. He saw us off by saying, "If you're hunting for details on other upcoming Halo fiction, you'll probably want to turn in next week, just saying."

 

His wording definitely teases at Hunt the Truth Season 2! I'll post weekly links and anyone interested can discuss here. Cheers lore lovers.

Not going to lie, I'm loving that we got the classification of the Infinite Succor.

Same but I'm actually more interested in The Minister of Etiology. And Hunt the Truth Season 2. I'm very eager for this next Canon Fodder. I hope he answers some community questions too.

My favorite part was a little tease of the Ground combat equivalent of Halo Fleet Battles(which I still want) and that makes me so happy to see 343i continuely expanding their board game presence. The best [art was the *maybe* inclusion of optional rules that allow you to play both games together. THAT IS FANTASTIC.

 

Seriously we need more Halo Fleet Battles discussion.

I'm waiting to see how much money is left on my card after the release of Halo 5 and Fallout 4. That will determine how quickly I get fleet battles.

I don't even want to play it, I just want the models of the ships.

As a massive Warhammer 40K fan I am surprised that I haven't already picked up Fleet Battles, despite seeing it in store a lot. Like Bacon said, i'll have to check the finances after  Halo and Fallout release. 

 

Great idea Doge! I'll make sure to "follow" this topic (Geddit?) Looking forward to more updates :D

Meh. Little on the light side this week. Even on the universe articles.

I was really looking forward to some info on Hunt the truth 2.. Also was hoping for a little info on the whereabouts of some prophets but I guess that's what Shadow of Intent will be about.

 

Starting to wonder if we're even getting hunt the truth season 2 this month

Loved the content this week. Frankie's last reply made me giddy. I also liked how Petra's Universe update mentioned her helping Ben in his story but didn't mention her capture which we heard about in Hunt the Truth season 2 at that point already.

Last week we got model names for some of the variants of Covenant we'll be seeing and this week we got the same but for Humanity's side and I love it all. A lighter Scorpion, a tougher Mongoose, Gungoose with grenade launchers. Too good too be true.

 

Love the new universe entries.

SoS getting fleshed out as a faction = Amazeballs

SoS getting fleshed out as a faction = Maybe HW2 MP faction? I'd be happy to see it.

I'd love to see some different classes though, SoS Hunters (the red hunters in Warzone maybe based on them like the elite in the SoS banshee?) SoS Jackals, and maybe SoS themed weapons?

Swoot DD!

Wasn't sure if it was possible but Grim actually one-upped the last Canon Fodder this week!

Model names for the weapon variants and currently used weapons for UNSC and Covenant and awesome new Universe entries including one Kamchatka, the setting where the first mission is played as Fireteam Osiris.

This week Lore Lord Grim gives us the names of the fauna life forms we find on the settings scene in Halo 5: Guardians during Campaign and multiplayer such as the flying creatures of Genesis and the whale-like creatures outside of Fathom. There are also some great Universe entry updates.

I'll start posting these in a weekly basis if everyone is cool with that.
 
This week in Canon Fodder is Issue 91.
 
COSPLAY. CANON. CAMPBELL.
 
This canon fodder goes over cosplay, and undersuits you will see in multiplayer for Halo 4 and Halo 5.
 
This is a great update. I admit I am a sucker for info on armor.

Please do post here. I like to discuss on Archive about this each week but it'd be great to have another lore enthusiast aboard to help ignite discussion and possibly enlighten others.

This week in Canon Fodder is Issue 92 - Halo-ween handoff
 
This canon fodder goes over summaries of Tales from Slipspace. But the real meat of the update is not in the canon fodder but in the Blitz interview. Seeing the awesome look of the new Hellbringers is well worth it.

I'm really looking forward to Blitz. Admittedly the original beta was not so fun for me probably because I sucked at it because it didn't play exactly like the first Halo Wars but I'm really happy they're doing a Blitz beta. Canon Fodder was good this week!

 

Bravo <3
