Welcome, Andromeda Vadum, to Halo Fanon: the wiki where you can write fan-made article(s) about the popular Halo series! Just follow these 3 basic rules and you will be guaranteed to be successful on this wiki!


Rule #1: Follow Canon! — What is Canon? By definition, it is the body of works considered genuine or official within a fictional universe. For example, Bungie and 343 Industries have officially stated that there were only twelve Halos. So, face the facts and try not to be stupid enough to create another Halo, otherwise it may be tagged and namespaced.

Rule #2: Mark Your Property! — Whenever you make an article, it is appropriate that you label your property with: {{Writer|Andromeda Vadum}} at the top of the article. If at some point you have not finished that article, just insert {{Under Construction}} to notify other users that it is not complete.

Rule #3: Sign Your Name! — Whenever you place a comment on a talk page, please sign in your name, insert the —~~~~ at the bottom of your comment. When you press the "Save Page" button, Halo Fanon will automatically convert the —~~~~ to your username along with the time and date you posted. If you still have any problem on this method, just insert this alternative signature:
—{{Name|Andromeda Vadum}} ~~~~~.

For more information on creating an article, visit the Halo Fanon Guide Manual.

Visit the rule page for the full list of rules and policies on Halo Fanon (link in the slider below). Note that other users will point out when you are breaking rules, so it is strongly recommended that you read them before you begin writing.



So I heard you like trolling? Well, heard/seen. Anyway, I wouldn't bother trying that on here otherwise your stay will be quite short. <Death to Heroes>[The Damned] [The Lost][The Forgotten]|Deus Ex Ajax

Thanks for your interest in Hammer Fall! To answer your questions, the guide to creating characters and factions is here, with necessary templates here and here. For posting your faction and characters go here. You don't need pages for the characters, but I must ask that you fill out as much of the character's stats as possible. For the RP, I (And maybe later, a few others) will play the role of game master, where we do a mostly one on one RP, posting back and forth where the game master issues objectives, adversity, challenges, etc. For posts, I#d prefer 1 every every 2-3 days, but more would be better. The RP itself starts on the 1st of March, but don't worry about having everything all ready on that date, it goes on for quite a few weeks and will go through major story arcs.




S013-Banner.png
Ajax 013 - <Death to Heroes>[The Damned] [The Lost][The Forgotten] ObscurumVictoria :
TALK - Greenwich Mean Time
Concerning your faction, the 'Russian Criminal Syndicate' faction on Hammer Fall, each faction must follow one of several types, such as mercenary groups, Sangheili Keeps, Jiralhanae Clans, etc. Yours would fill the 'Criminal Cartel' type, not 'human'. As such, it would have the following attributes: Criminal Cartels have a population and military cap of 1, so they can't spend more than 1 point in either of those, 9 points to spend on attributes and 3 to spend on resources, with a bonus 1 points to wealth. Their abilities should lend to avoid fights, not starting them. However, if you wish them to be a more Insurrectionist-style faction, then they'd be a 'Paramilitary' type. They have a population cap of 0 and a military cap of 4, with 15 attribute points to spend and 5 resource points.

Now the other things to bring up with your faction concern the rules of Halo Fanon itself, which Hammerfall should oblige. First concern is realism. Issues include things like using dollars, which aren't used, the being the most powerful faction on earth, when earth is governed by the UEG/UNSC, having energy shields, an incredibly advanced and new technology to humans with horrendous price costs. Gorbachev would have to be much older to have the experience for the rank of general. Also, the M4A1, Desert Eagle and Semtex have been out of production for 500 years, meaning there's no way he'd be able to get them. I'd use contemporary weapons like the MA5 rifle and M6 pistol series. Similar concerns exist for Khrushchev, along with the fact the Red Army was disbanded with the fall of the soviet union, and its successor, the Army of the Russian Federation, would of been disbanded with the rise of the UNSC. Also, Stalingrad was renamed to Volgograd in 1961. There's also lets of spelling that needs to be checked.

RE: Not canon friendly

At minimum, you have two weeks to make appropriate changes before the article is namespaced. However, if the author of the article is clearly making an effort to make the article canon friendly, there is effectively no deadline. Thanks for your quick response and understanding.

TALK CONTRIBUTIONS — Eastern Standard Time
First off, to answer your project-related questions:
  • This is not an RP, at least not at this stage of its conception. It's a shared universe/story in a similar vein to Brodie-001's Red Flag and Vae Victus. As for completion, I sincerely hope that it will be completed at some point.
  • Not everything that is submitted will have a central role in the story. That being said, there will be multiple storylines happening over multiple planets and environments, which will allow for a more clear story that can still focus on as many characters as possible.
  • I have not yet determined how much user agency will be at play. This project is still very much in its infancy and thus how the story will be arranged has not yet been laid out. As of this writing, I do not intend to kill off characters without their authors' permission. As far as worries that your characters will be presented in ways that you do not approve of, I and any guest writers will try to adhere to what is presented on their articles. That being said, that is a risk taken when participating in a project in which your characters will be written by others.

Now, regarding your own characters.

  • Andromeda Vadum remains NCF due to the use of real-world technology (namely the helicopter) in the images. Aside from that, I suggest you do a spelling, grammar, and formatting check on the article. Once this is done, I see no reason why the article cannot be submitted.
  • Gorbachev is more problematic, as while the article has not been NCF-ed, the idea of a nationalistic, Earth-based Insurrectionist movement does not mesh with the ideals of the canon Insurrectionists, who primarily want independence from the Earth government as they believe the colonial system only benefits Earth and the inner colonies. The powerful figure you describe in the article doesn't mesh with the 343i-based universe the project takes place in and thus major details would be altered in his translation within the project. If you are indeed worried about your characters not being presented properly, you will most likely not be pleased with seeing Gorbachev transposed into the project.

I hope this answers your questions.

Well, there's a number of flaws present with this.
  • Dr. Charet is unlikely to still be the incumbent President as of 2570. Most democratic governments have legislation to limit the number of terms a governmental head can serve. I'd just use a throw away president you can kill off at the drop of a hat.
  • In the event that the president dies in office, there's one of two things that could happen.
    • In US politics, he is succeed by the vice-president, who functions as acting president for the rest of the term.
    • However, few democratic systems use this, and instead the incumbent party select a member of the political party to succeed.
    • Now if you want your guy to succeed as president following the death of the incumbent president, I would suggest he be a long standing member of their political party, and be in a high position prior to his predecessor's death, probably vice-president.
  • There's lots of problems with Titan Corp, but I'll save those for the end.
  • Now for his son's political career
    • Vice-President isn't a consolation prize for not becoming President. Most political positions are quite fluid, and decided internally prior, and then after the election. He'd need to be part of the winning political party for a hope in this.
    • Now to succeed after the assassination, he'd need the backing of his political party
    • Now, the whole martial law, totalitarian state, disbanding the military, etc. In most democratic systems, US government included, the President holds surprisingly little power, and serves more as a figurehead than anything. The real power is held by the parliament (Congress in the case of the US). In order to pass any changes, laws, powers, etc, anything he attempts has to pass through the parliamentary system. This parliament would be made up of members of his own party, and members of other parties, politically opposed to him. He'd also suffer rebellion from inside his own political party as they disagree with his extreme measures. There's a larger issue of corruption. Using his position as head of the UEG to further his corporate gains, especially in so obvious a manner would be immediate grounds for his impeachment, and given the severity might even be grounds for treason. His entire scheme would back fire, exploding in his own face. Also, given the size and political clout of the UNSC itself, attempting to disband it, would, at best, see him ousted from office politically, and at worse see a full scale military coup.
  • The Titan Corp thing is fraught with peril as well. A governments gross domestic product is so outrageously huge that no corporation can compare. For instance, the most profitable company in the US is ExxonMobil, with a revenue of $421 billion, while the US's own gross domestic product (Essentially what the nation earns in a year) is $53,143 billion. Now a single, privately owned company, attempting to take the place of the UNSC, is infeasible in the extreme, as the cost to run it is simply not profitable, and would put the company into the red, bankrupting them. Also, PMCs acting as standing military force is also extremely unprofitable. Look to modern day PMCs for what they do, since most of it tends to be mid level security, technical support, etc. Most have a handful of transport aircraft and a few lightly armoured vehicles.

I was thinking that participants would choose a faction to RP as and then write characters of that faction; however, I don't see why participants couldn't write characters for other factions as well. I assume the Russian Criminal Syndicate is based in the Outer Colonies and you're claiming it and the Sangheili Alliance as yours (which is allowed but I haven't written it in yet)?

There will be more opportunities to earn greater cR later on, and I'm afraid the way I determine whether or not factions are overpowered is by looking at the fleets they have with the cR they have and deciding "Yeah, that's good enough" or "Whoa, that's more than I thought it would be."

and it will work without adding the arrow. Note that if there are spaces in the name you have to put in the _ for each one and then have them as spaces on the other entry field.

Hey there Vadum I was wondering if we could go through how you had planned the story play out in big length, like how how and who finds the Pandora first and how does the others follow after them, Why did Vincent King recruit Fireteam Cell to come with him and so and and so fourth. I get it that the different faction will fight/ betray each other to get their hands on the many artifacts on the planet but other then that I would like some more details :). Hope you'll have a fine day.



Sounds like an awesome story and the style sound like it could be lots of fun. As of how the Ember Coalition can be introduced is maybe easily done... They have ONI deserters still working within ONI that could gather the information and send it to the coalitions command who then sends a recovery force team to the Apple of Eden. I think the LEGION the Coalition could work together on this one as the two organizations have much in common.

As for Fireteam Cell and Lhor Konar I'm glad you would like to introduce them in our story. Fireteam Cell can't really disobey orders due to the micro bombs in their head (If you have seen mission Impossible 3 or Batman: Assault On Arkham yu what their in for) and can easily be deployed under Vincent Kaisers command and Zeta Primes (The Fireteam's assigned dumb AI that monitors the team and updates their objectives according ONI priorities).

As to who gets the Apple of Eden I think it shouldn't be the Ember Coalition because they will later get the Guardian of Norma... Let's say they fail in getting to the artifact or is betrayed by LEGION who takes the artifact for themselves and the Coalition then, somehow, finds the map, or at least pieces of it, to the Guardian of Norma. That way we can link this story to the one where the many factions will fight for control over the station later.Revan180193 (talk) 07:26, July 7, 2015 (UTC)

With all due respect, I actually don't care what you call it. I modified them both so it's not visible that both templates were your's, and at this point, they aren't your's anymore. It's also in my right to doubt if you created these templates yourself in the first place, meaning you copied them as well. Unless there's proof of this template existing nowhere else I will continue to to doubt this. I hope this carries my point across. Nicktc 21:02, September 8, 2015 (UTC)

Even though there's still no valid proof, since I can't log in there to check or anything, in face of an easier solution I've decided to remove it after all. You can also have the members only template back, I don't like it anyway. Nicktc 09:29, September 9, 2015 (UTC)

I think it would be a great idea with the shared google doc. I already got an Google Account ;). My Spartan, Arn-G290 is part of a fireteam I'm about to create so there'll be four more Spartans in the near future. I'm still scaling down the Ember Coalition so they operate on a much smaller scale than I first had planned for them... I'm still not sure what I'm going to do with the fireteam right now. It was just an idea that popped up in my head while I played a little with Vanity :P.

Yeah, I can get some work done on it. The thing is, I'll be kinda concentrating on the conflicts between the Yanme'e and Sangheili, which a pretty major event for me since the Sangheili government splits apart. One group wants to ignore the UNSC's peril and defend themselves, and the other still wants to band with them to share infrastructure and common borders. That's what I have on paper, anyway.

If its a group of planets banding together for independence, then it'll obviously be a lot bigger.

No, I'm not leaving the Vadumverse. I was actually gonna ask you if we can have a crossover with Vadumverse and Cebverse :D Also, I'll try my best. I'm not much into coding, but hey, you can just copy the code, change the color and replace it with our news.

Cheers.

Hey Vadum, I've noticed that many of your pages have a special quote coding. I just wanted you to suggest to make it into a direct template, so you don't have to paste the coding every now and then.

Cheers!

Hey Vadum. So are we still going to collaborate for the Earth Riots, or have you decided you don't want to do it?

Well, I'll try to make it once, under my namespace. If it succeeds, then I'll move it to mainspace.

EDIT: I've tried it, and it works! I've moved it from namespace to this page, under your name. For the first time, my trial at coding actually works! Seriously though, may I use that template for one (or maybe two) of my pages?

Hey Vadum, I just wanted to add a bit more to the Earth riots of 2558 page. Basically, in this Indian city of Delhi, criminals accidentally activate a bio-weapon they obtained from the Covenant Remnants. And as such, the city is evacuated and then small gangs with low-quality weapons go into the city to recover money and stuff like that. It's copied from Division, and can be a reasonable explanation for the "'File:Earth_riots_of_2558.jpg'" picture, since it contains 21st century-ish weapons. This is just a suggestion, and we can we change the city if needed. And maybe, I can create a char affiliated to the gangs.

Cheers.

Hey Vadum, I've added the east coast of Australia to the list where the riots occurred, since Sydney got hit hard by the Covenant and its citizens would be worried about another attack (push it might have a few racial divisions after the war), while Brisbane may be just worried about a possible attack. Anyway, you said in the update to let you know of any cities we should add.

Hey Vadum. Delta Company's intended to be a stand-alone article, where the Delta's will be kept together until their deployment before going off into other universes. The reasoning for this is so people who really want Delta SPARTAN-IIIs haven't got any restrictions stopping them from joining. If it causes too much trouble, I'll to talk with CB and King about it to see what they want to do about it.

Don't worry about the waiting time. I haven't been on the site much myself in the last few days. For the stuff I have done (John Kain, Spartan Amy Hall) is it okay if instead of abandoning them I just integrate them into the vadumverse. If they are not good enough that's fine. I am going to abandon my first story in the alpha verse (stranded) but I hoped to use the characters for a different story.


RE: Weekly

Greet'ns. By the way, sorry if I ever seem brutal with my feedback on the Weekly, since I think doing it week after week has worn me down from "always softball it as hard as you can by suggesting them as changes for the better" to "calling out each nitpick and straight saying it's bad". But, the latter is usually more helpful by cutting right to the chase and getting at whats and whys. So, let's have a look. Wow, that's a really old article you're drawing from. It might seem more recent because it's got that Revenant Era badge, but I think that might be just because Ajax edited the Necros badge in Era to be Revenant's; the article hasn't been touched since 2009.

Right, so, first off, I can see the sense in there being some sort of bureau that represents the interests of law enforcement in the UEG, but I don't see the guys giving out parking tickets being part of the same group that would handle counter-terrorism across multiple planets. To me, the name UEG Police Department just doesn't fit. A department of police I think is more associated with places like a city or county, so one department that covers all of human space just seems . . . well, odd. So I really would recommend changing the name to reflect what exactly it deals with more closely, which with "criminal apprehension, counterterrorism, counterintelligence, and criminal investigations" sounds to me like the FBI, who are the US' primary federal law enforcement, security and intelligence organization. They handle interstate crime, and a similar organization for the UEG would probably coordinate to handle crime on an interplanetary scale, and you wouldn't need a bunch of sub-division articles for it. The Imperial Security Bureau, or ISB, from Star Wars is about the kind of thing I'd look at. Acronyms seem to be popular with them. I suppose if you wanted to keep Department in the name, Department of Law Enforcement has the same structure as Department of Defense and would sound like a federal agency. There was, in canon, a Department of Colonial Security, though it was absorbed by ONI.

I do get the concern about changing names on a lot of pages; it's a pain, but not so hard when you have ctrl+f to find specific phrases. I had to do the same with my Gamma Company characters, since originally they were in a class I'd come up with called the S-II Betas. In the end, it made collaboration way easier for me to be part of an established canon group, though. Sidenote, as long as I'm on the subject of names and renames, I'd also take a look at Sanghelios Police Department, though only because it doesn't sound Covenant-y enough in my opinion. I was considering a Sangheili law enforcement officer on High Charity at one point, and was going to call him an Inquisitor, with High Charity's 'police' force being the Inquisition. Getting into my own ideas here, but I imagined the Covenant would have something not quite the same as police. They'd be enforcers of the Covenant religion as well as law, the two being inextricably connected, and hunt down dangerous heretics in their holy city.

I'm with you in thinking cop shows are great, and law enforcement in Halo is neat to explore. There's a lot of places it can go, from precincts in human cities like New Alexandria to lonely sheriffs on sparsely-populated frontier colonies. I just think your scale of organization should match the type of story you want to tell; if it's inter-planetary, chasing down terrorist leaders, an FBI-like bureau is what you want, but I could also see a smaller-scale story about a cop precinct on earth having to deal with petty crime made dangerous by including humans and aliens in the same neighborhoods. slowfuture just had a stub about the Covenant asylum-seekers mentioned being in Rio and their own neighborhood, and that's sure to make for all kinds of tension. So I'm excited to see what you do, but do all you can to make sure your ideas and names for them are as accurate for each other as possible.

Hi. I just wanted to apologise for my inactivity. Being a fifth year is hard. I'm going to be working on a new story for the Vadumverse.


Yo how do you do the little profile pages on the side of the wiki articles, like the one on most wiki profiles? I'm new, so if you could help that'd be great. -Tre

Hello, Andromeda Vadum. I am Tre 'Yaeumai, a new writer of the fanon category, and I would like to contribute to the "Vadumverse" you made. You and your articles that you and the rest have made are very great, all in all, from the lore to the ideas you have. Pretty creative. Anyways, as stated, I would respectfully request to contribute to your storyline. If you were to accept, I would be grateful. -Tre

On Vadumverse

I understand how you'd want to decline, as English isn't my strong suit, as I get C's a lot. But yes, I would like the help. I'd greatly appreciate it. And I was going to make my own universe while contributing to yours, so you do know. Anyway, I thank you to the highest degree possible for even reading what I do, and I would love criticism. So again, if you were to help me, I'd be grateful. Thank you. -Tre

Greet'ns. Just wanted to ask what your immediate plans for David and Kyle are in The Hunted, since they're both in a Bumblebee, right? I've got Kestrl's characters and mine in a Pelican looking for any Bumblebees that've been left behind, and are picking up Kestrl's other character, a Spartan. Wanted to know if you're planning on having your lifepod make it to ground itself, or if you want to have Alpha-002 help them out.

Righto. I'm aiming to get a post up tonight, and I'll make mention of their life pod. Kestrl might have a post up next, getting his Spartan aboard, and probably then you could post about us picking you up. Then we can catch up with the others on the surface.
