Feel free to suggest the topic for the NEXT Weekly Site Poll in your response! SD, out!
Was anyone kinda shocked when they seen the crew for blue team? I mean these are Spartans that Cheif knows not some pick up team but people he grew with. I read some of the books and was thrilled to see Kelly is back R.I.P Sam but wow this was a huge reel in for me. I just want to know is 343i going to include some of Chief's past in this game will we really get an inside peek at behind the Spartans II program and how they manged to find each other
Laugh with me.
Nafus posted a topic in Offbeat ItemsOur online school library is kind of derp. In most books in stock they usually have a summary of the plot, characters, setting and often times the first chapter, right? I was poking around online and found they had a pretty good selection of some of the Halo books. The Flood, The Fall of reach, Cryptum, so on. So I believe it was The Flood I clicked on and, well... Look for yourself. Master Chief Male Soldier Orphan Known as Spartan 117; bioengineered technologically advanced; super soldier; taken from an orphanage as a child and turned into a super being through surgery, drugs and military training; designed to be deadly in wars; disguised as an alien race; fighting with the humans an alien race called Covenant Cortana Male Artificial intelligence Fighting with the humans against a race called Covenant So, disregard Cortana's boobs and everything else that this conflicts with. If the School library says it, it must be true. Seriously?! XD
What do you think of Raiku?
Sniper0092 posted a topic in Member Created WorkMy book I've posted here, what do you think of the story so far?
This will have accurate guesses for the upcoming Halo games. I based these theories off of the books I have read which indeed will contain spoilers. Books I have read - Halo: Glasslands, Halo: The Thursday War, and other Halo insights I will begin to discuss the manner of ONI's plan for the planet, Sanghelios, home of the Sangheili (aka Elites). In the book, Halo: Glasslands, Jul 'Mdama (the head of the Covenant fleet in Halo 4) sets off to find what his partner 'Telcam is up to, for 'Telcam was acting suspicious. Jul and 'Telcam are both planning to overthrow the Arbiter and 'Telcam is to take his place as leader. So, when 'Telcam leaves, Jul follows him then to discover 'Telcam is recieving human aid against the Arbiter. I'll explain later why humans are doing this. Anyway, Jul is caught, but not by 'Telcam, however by a spartan. Jul is then taken prisoner by humans. 'Telcam doesn't know about this, nor did he know he was followed by Jul in the first place. This eventually leads to the next book, "The Thursday War." While Jul is imprisoned, which was at ONIRF Trevelyan (aka Onyx), he was tested on (via food) to see how he reacts to certain chemicals and so. Basically being poisoned. Eventually, Humans tell Jul what their plan is. To poison the food supply of the planet Sanghelios. To basically torture Jul, making him feel hopeless. Eventually he escapes through a portal (humans let him wander outside in Onyx, for they didn't know there were portals), where it drops him on Sanghelios. There, he appeared in thin air, and a few Sangheili had seen this. There was actually a 'prophecy' to find the Didact that these Elites knew of, and Jul matched it. Jul then also finds out that his wife died during the Civil War. Thus Jul (he doesn't believe in the gods anymore) uses this prophecy and gods to create a fleet against the humans, for vengance of his wife and to stop the human domination. Basically, ONI is wanting the Elites to kill themselves out via Civil War. To weaken themselves, and then ONI would poison the food supply. This would kill off nearly all of the Sangheili (Plan proven in books!). The ones who survive would be weak, and most likely their reproductive systems would be damaged. Thus completely wiping out the Sangheili race. If Chief does find out their plan, and the plan to kill Catherine Halsey (she was like a mother to John), he may go rogue. Also Cortana's death may factor. Now, there was actually a race before the Forerunners, called the Precursors. The Forerunners killed them off, supposidely, but the Precursors created the Flood. They seem to be very important in this manner. Possibly, the Precursors will return, maybe they all weren't dead. If so, this would be too much for humanity to handle. And if they kill off the Elites, they got rid of their best line of defence. Now to ONIRF Trevelyan (Onyx). Onyx is a shield world that is a shelter from the Halo Rings... Hmm.... Which was in the book Glasslands and The Thursday War, which they make it seem to be very important, very. Quite possibly, this is a huge theory, this will factor in another Halo launch. The books kinda seemed to foreshadow something, but it's unclear. Possibly, the Precursors, if they come back, and the flood will be so powerful maybe a Halo launch will be humanities last resort? Chief would probably factor in big time. Maybe the gift the Librarian gave Chief was to survive the Halo Array, for he survived the Composer. He might only be the one who can fire the rings, possibly if this were to happen. So then humans/other races will try to get to Onyx, and maybe not all life will make it to Onyx, maybe most life will be wiped out from the Halo's. I'm sure this will become pretty dark if they do this. The Halo's however will have to come into play again. What do you think of this theory? Give me your thoughts!
Why do people ignore the story outside the games?
Bergs posted a topic in Halo 4 (360)This has been bothering me since halo2. People wondering how he got back to earth as an example... How about if you care about the campaign enough just read the books? I thought the story told in Halo 4 is the best yet and it annoys me to see people bash it due to not reading up on it.
Actually Read the book/ Ancient Enemy Revealed
Mat Burke posted a topic in Halo 4 (360)I've been reading a lot on different discussions about who is the new enemy? and people keep giving their opinion on who it will be and what their motive is the biggest issue I have with their opinions is that they don't have all the facts They take the information they know from online and tell their opinion on something they have barely touched their feet into the halo universe is vast and has gone across many platforms from game to book to comic book to legos.....yes legos count having read almost every aspect of it and watch every video i can i have a very different opinion than most do !!!!!!!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!! in one of the books they talk about a dark enemy locked in a jail that was put there before even the forunners came into existence they said that anytime they came across this ancient civilizations structures even the forunners were unable to break destroy or alter anything bout them this enemy was release at some point in the book and he begins trying to escape one of the rings from what i gather they got him onto a shield world which was the Didact's world he built in secret in response to the halo's being built the artificial intelligence then has "custody" of him and although they have been able to keep him from escaping they have not been able to kill him or stop him so i feel he basically has taken over most of the computers in the shield world and has been fighting with the convenant who were sucked in there and the shield world even if its systems are compromised will not allow anyone to leave that is why you see a lot of things getting sucked into it often because it can't allow outside interference otherwise it could risk exposure to the outside universe this is just my thoughts on my information most of it is debatable but i do strongly believe the enemy is the Captive although the forunners couldn't break the mysterious prison that held the Captive the humans were able to find away basically we broke enough away where we could have a look inside and have a talk with "the captive" and only one person talked to him and they basically said yea shut the thing back up again we cannot let this thing out also lets bury it so no one can find it yea so thats my thoughts on the enemy
B1ue D3vi1 posted a topic in Member Created WorkI'm a bit confused on what ONI actually is and I was wondering if someone who really knows a lot about Halo could explain it to me. I understand some things about ONI, but I don't comprehend what ONI's actual purpose is. Thanks in advance for you guys' help.
