Welcome, DirgeOfCerberus111, 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|DirgeOfCerberus111}} 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|DirgeOfCerberus111}} ~~~~~.

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.

ONI did outcompete all others eventually, but I think the MID still existed up to the early H-C War. That or I'm remembering someone else's fanon on the subject.

I see. I must've been thinking of SpecOps306's work, where ONI eventually overtakes the intel divisions of all branches just as it helped usurp the Colonial Military Authority. Still, if you want GOLIATH to remain an Army program, you could use the Military Intelligence Division to specify a different branch's version of ONI. Office of Army Intelligence would just sound uninspired, while the Military Intelligence Division would supposedly be the combined intelligence organizations of all branches (even if ONI's really taken over in practice).

I would figure some sort of Army special projects group would still exist. And if that doesn't work out, you could always turn to ONI itself, even if it's the Army asking the Navy to give them an advantage against the Navy (sorta hard to get). But then, Colonel Ackerson who headed up the S-IIIs held a position in the Army.

If you mean whether the concept of an Army program to create Spartan-like augmented soldiers is plausible, I'd say yes, absolutely. It's just a matter of execution, and I think you've got the ability to pull it off. I'd recommend taking a look at some of the other project/programs on the site for inspiration, the VOLSUNG Initiative and TROJAN Program (LOMI/Baccus) in particular. These articles are huge old projects, and they can be a little intimidating sometimes (oy, what I wouldn't give for the skills of some users here), but don't be discouraged. If you look to learn from others, look to the best.

There's really no policy for making a fanon species other than it should be Halo-related and that it fits into canon. This section of the Canon policy could probably help you out and could also relate to other Species that are not Tier 0. Canon Policy

Greet'ns again. Good Articles can be nominated on the talk of this page, and the requirements for a GA nominee are there as well. Articles can be nominated by any user, even self-nominations, though you ought to be very certain of yourself before doing that. Not that it's bad, but self-nominating can just feel weird sometimes.

As for images, you can get screenshots directly out of Halo: Reach by taking a screenshot in Theater, uploading it to your file share (if you have XBox Live), and then you're able to get it from the Halo Waypoint website by looking for your Gamertag and Reach Service Record. There're probably guides on Youtube or Google to help navigating the Waypoint site, since its interface can be a little confusing.

Hi Dirge, thanks for replying so quickly! To answer your question, no, you don't need your articles to be fully developed. Just pick which three characters you favour most and use them as your major characters. For more details and such, I hope the rule page will be helpful to you. If not, you can always come see me on the IRC and we can talk directly. Regards!

It'd be good if you create a "Skills and Abilities" section for each of your characters, so I get an idea of what they're like in combat. And there's no actual timeframe for this event since it's in an alternate universe, so just decide for yourself what part of your characters' lives they're in when they join.

Hm, I don't write Covenant operations, so I don't think I'd be the best person to answer that. Maybe ask Actene though, I think he'll be more helpful on the matter.

I was actually asked a similar question recently, and my answer was that instead of the more technical UNSC terminology a more religious tone should be taken. "Inquisition" is a good term; the one I suggested and the one I adopted was "meditation", as seen in the article Meditations on Ascended Servants. As the Covenant are studying Spartans, a possible that comes to mind is "Inquiry/Meditations on the Demoniac Heresy" or something similar.

I hope this helps; as long as your title carries appropriate levels of religious reference it should be good.

I'm not that good at the "how" part myself, particularly when it comes to Spartan-esque recruitment and training. I would say that you should work on the concept a bit; as the S-I and S-II projects were highly classified by ONI, it's unlikely that the Army would be privy to the dirty details behind what was going on in Section Three. We also don't know what the Army's role is within the UNSC military machine; it's possible that it mainly exists as a planetary defense force and thus wouldn't have the same need for supersoldiers the way the Navy or Marines might.

That being said, the Goliaths could have originated as part of some sort of "supersoldier race" in which multiple branches competing for funding from HIGHCOM were fielded. In this case, you could make the case that the Goliaths were less effective than the Spartans due to the lower requirements (the S-IIs were handpicked for being physically, genetically, and mentally exceptional; their childhood of nonstop training probably had as much to do with their effectiveness as the augmentations did) and because the augmentations used were less effective. The program is then discontinued, but you can have ex-Goliath soldiers go on to perform heroic feats during the Great War, like Johnson and other former ORION members did.

An interesting way you could tie this program into future canon is that the concept of a Spartan program without the use of child soldiers is exactly what the UNSC is going for with the S-IVs in Halo 4; in the case of the S-IVs they are recruited from all branches of the UNSC military. You could add a caveat to the article saying that elements of Goliath were incorporated into the S-IV program when it was organized in 2553.

Also, since Goliath is all about being a more regular special forces program, I recommend not giving the recruits the Spartan-esque "Goliath-XXX" designation. It works just as well if you provide their full name, rank and then maybe in parentheses what their designation was.

Ahoy there, SotF season 5 begins in 24 hours, and you still haven't made your request for supplies! Unless you want your characters to go in unarmed, see the resources here, and check your balance and character stats here. When you've decided what you want for each character, write it down here. Just a reminder that each character can only use one of the two resource shops every episode. Dual-wielding is also permitted with weapons marked with the 20px-SotF_dual_wieldable.png icon, but make sure that your character stats match the sum of both weapons' requirements. Thanks and good luck!

Not at all, I'd be happy to answer your question. Health packs and stim-packs are not vital, and no, your characters will not die of thirst. They exist only to replenish your character's endurance and energy, respectively. You can get a couple now if you want to hold onto them, or you could always get them later if you feel that you need them. Either way, you lay out your own strategy in SotF :)

Yes, I can move the weapon. I'll have to adjust Nusra's stats so he can use it though. And you're down to 42 SP, so you can't afford the camo. As for objectives, I haven't set them up yet, but I will soon. First there's the extermination round to deal with. Keep your eyes peeled.

No, endurance does not recharge itself. It can only be replenished with a health pack. Also, the resource shop can repair any damaged weapons (or if any weapons are lost, they can be returned to the character at the end of the episode for free). Any resources you get off your opponent you can keep or sell to the resource shop for SP.

Yo!

Your article looks fairly solid so far, no real complaints from me. Since the GOLIATH Program seems to be intended as a failure in the long run, you could mention what happens with the research afterwards. For example you could have the chemicals somehow ending up in rebel hands and inspiring the creation of Rumbledrugs, or have the data contributing to SPARTAN-III or IV procedures years later somehow. It's always good to have projects tie into other events in the Haloverse in some way. Otherwise, the article looks pretty good so far, looking forward to seeing more from it.

I think the short time frame can actually make for a better story. Pressed for time, he has little in terms of materiel or men to rebuild what is otherwise a destroyed military formation, and his struggles to overcome this can become central to the story. And there's plenty of adventures an individual can have after the war, such as becoming a warlord, or Covenant sympathiser/remnant commander, or taking his spec ops forces and forming a resistance movement that tries to attack the UNSC and Sangheili in a clandestine manner, like [en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Werwolf Operation Werwolf] by Nazi Germany.

Well, you've certainly stumbled into a quagmire here. There's no right or wrong answer. Now, if you want my two cents on the matter, here's my opinion. The Covenant has no distinction between the forces of the navy or army, both serving as one single branch. Ultimate, ground officers dedicated to ground operations would probably be subservient in rank to similarly ranked naval officers. Given that Sangheili are rigorously trained in matters of military affairs, its reasonable to believe that most would have a rudimentary understanding of ground and space combat. Now, lets say there's a gap in command, and the only officer they have to fill that gap is a ground officer, that's believable, especially given that most officers seem to perform both roles regularly. Also given that in the gap between Halo 2, and a Halo 3, Rtas, a special forces officer, took command of a fleet, and commanded it damn well. Hope that cleared the waters a little.

I dunno, I kind of like the name. It's long, sure, but that seems like Covenant for you. The only change I'd recommend would be saying "into" instead of "in", but that'd just make it longer, and you want to go shorter.



RE: Few Questions

From what I've seen, I'd imagine that while the Colonia Militia would most likely defer to regular UNSC forces when necessary, they'd most likely follow orders from a colony's Governor or similar authority most of the time. In the event of Insurrectionist activity they would be the first to respond and take care of it, or at least take care of things until backup arrives. While pre-war Colonial Militia had ties with the CMA, they are officially a branch of the UNSC Army and would fall under their command in most cases. In terms of rank, it's not entirely clear how far one can go in the CM. The highest we've seen is Colonel Randall Aiken/Randall-037 as head of Sedra's Colonial Militia, though I don't see any reason why it can't go higher and it may vary from planet to planet. I've got a Wet Navy 'Admiral' as head of a planet's CM in my universe, for example.

Your GOLIATH Program seems fine from what I can see, looks like you've put a lot of effort into making it. While some might have their misgivings about other supersoldier programs coming into play at around the same time as SPARTAN-II, I can see why they'd be so desperate to try all these solutions with mounting Insurrection across multiple colonies at this point. Good work so far, though.

I was planning of having my character be someone the vehicle specialist for the GOLIATHs, leaning towards making him an airborne trooper and pilot of the Air Force, though I can change that if the GOLIATHS only recruit from the Army. He's still young and inexperienced though, merely joining it in hopes of using it to climb the ranks to achieve the same reputation his ancestors had. He'd also find out about the illegal brain surgery, something which might make him a bit aggressive to his superiors.

I'd like to know what sort of training they go through, the missions they're expected to go on, and of course what their equipment's like. I'm on the Irk atm, so we can talk there if you want.

Battle of Hollow Point

Hi Dirge, I was wondering if when you expand your Battle of Hollow Point article, if the ships that I have written could have taken part in the engagement? The were largely assigned to the outer-colonies for deep-space, convoy, and long range patrol as an operational detachment of the UNSC Third Fleet. At the outbreak of the Covenant War, the ships were present at many of the futile outer colony battles. As the outer-colonies became thinner and thinner, HIGHCOM started to withdraw expensive ships like cruisers from the outer-colonies, so it would make sense that the UNSC Pride and UNSC Haskell would be at the battle, since Admiral Elliot's defense fleet composed of a number of warships limping back from the few outer-colonies that remained which FLEETCOM deemed too risky to defend in force.

My only stipulation is I would like the ships to have escaped the battle, however Rear Admiral Borden can be killed in the battle and both ships can be heavily damaged both on arrival and departure from the engagement.

What do you think?
