Welcome, The Pale Kestrl, 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|The Pale Kestrl}} 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|The Pale Kestrl}} ~~~~~.

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.

Unfortunately it seems you're not in AAO, so neither the article you write for it will be canon within it, nor can you use the template to mark it as such.

If you wish, feel free to put the article in your namespace, or make your articles in general Halo canon for us to assess your skills. It is actually good of you to ask beforehand, and will be taken into consideration should you apply for AAO.

If you do decide to put your article in your namespace, they can easily be moved out of it once they become part of AAO lore.

Thank you.

Technically neither. As an RP setting, it exists in its own universe, per say, though there's elements from AAO and Necros in there. In short, you don't need to be a member of a project, its open to everyone.

Its just an idea for now, in all honestly. While I highly doubt that the UNSC would ever create mechs the size of scarabs, I am considering the plausibility of suits similar to the one seen in Prototype for possible use in future stories, possible as an improvement to the Mantis mech seen in Halo 4. Again, these are just ideas and I'll have to figure out a way to fit them into my universe before going forward with the plan.

Most of us live in or around the Eastern Timezone (5 hours behind GMT/UTC), which means Brodie-001, who also lives in England, sometimes has to stay up until 4am (and on some occasions, 9am) to finish the RP with us. Which is why we usually don't RP until the weekends, when no one has to get up the next morning.

If I ever get around to trying to launch the JAILBREAK RP, you can absolutely participate. But it's going to be a long time if ever until it actually happens. While I love the idea of it, there are a number of other projects I want to make decent progress on first, for example my short story collections and a number of articles.

As for writing tips? Well, I can link you to a forum from a while back where many of us put in our two cents on the matter, and an online guide site Sona linked me to and has proved very helpful for me. As a personal note though, I'd tell you to just do it. Accept imperfections in a first draft, because as much of a pain as it can be, going back over it and rewriting will result in something that flows more smoothly, is less repetitive with some descriptive words (having that trouble now, but I'm catching myself), and has less of those subtle errors in grammar and spelling (like to and too, that don't show up as wrong in Word programs). And one more, that sounds easy but is just about impossible to live up to, is write every day, even if you don't want to. It doesn't have to be something long, or sticking to the same project. Just write something short that takes advantage of a bit of combat in your head or a clever dialogue line you thought up. Anything to practice more. Good luck, That Damn Sniper.

Aye, I think most if not all of them would have participated in the Battle of Earth.

Certainly, it is after all the intention of RPs to foster collaboration. I'll be using Gavin Dunn primarily, running around trying to stay ahead of his bounties for the most part until he finds something worth risking his fragile existence to fight for, and I'll also have a part in the Freelancers faction, as Reginald Harding is one of my characters. If you're bringing in Shoto, I would be interested in having some Gamma reunions, but I doubt I'll be bringing Ion Team in on this one. All the same, though, if you're interested in joining our perspective little Gamma Company article, you could sort your Spartans and team name into the lists here.

And good on you for keeping up the writing. I still haven't been as diligent as I ought to be, but perhaps I'll redouble my efforts to match you, eh? Collaboration and friendly competition: excellent motivators.

I'm open to any sort of interaction for Hammer Fall. Simon's meant to be my "fun RP" HF character while I do my serious strategising with my Cleansing Blade faction. I've decided not to use Kahn for HF, though if you want to discuss future stories and such feel free.

Of course you can contribute, just be sure to follow character guidelines and read up on the important information first. As for the IRC, simply follow the instructions on this page and you'll be able to get on in no time. I'll let you through the filtering channel. People working on the story have to be on the IRC very frequently so that they can discuss what to do with events, characters etc.

Well, Hammer Fall is supposed to be something of an alternate universe, so we could do almost anything we like. Mainline Gavin I have to work on sometime soon, because I need to get his article to the point where he's a freelance Captain and able to do all kinds of cool stuff. For now, use this list to determine what Gavin was doing and when, whether it be that he crossed paths with Tal through the Insurrection or Syndicate or even Department of Commercial Shipping. Shoto, I wouldn't know about, because I'm gonna find it hard enough just to write for one Gavin in Hammer Fall and keep up. Chakravartin is entering a couple Gammas, so if you have the energy and desire to write for Shoto at the same time, he might be a prospective person to collaborate with on that front.

Right, saw your message before, got tied up and forgot, sorry. Anyway, aye, I think having them meet up post-war instead of before would be the way to go, as civilians would be a little more likely to shoot a member of the genocidal aliens first and ask questions later before.

Augmentation troubles in the IIIs, you say? Well, it would be only Gamma Company since they were the ones to get the brain augmentations, but I'm always interested in story ideas, if you want to share. I have an inkling of one for the Chancer V when Simon's first month without the stabilization drugs run out, possibly with Gavin trying to infiltrate and steal some onboard Infinity.

And Harvest . . . well, it seems almost every user has had their retelling of its events, and mentioned that many other Spartans were there but not by name so they could potentially collaborate, but I don't think there's ever been an RP on the subject.

We might be able to combine the storylines if we have the events set to happen at the same time. When Gavin boards the Infinity, he inevitably gets caught when he's trying to steal the drugs, but is rescued by Kodiak and Shepard once they realize what he's trying to do and then leave with him. The big thing to figure out is why the booster shots - set up for the Gammas to receive every month - have finally stopped working.

It would also help establish a bit of a timeline for me. Dyne and Morgana's romance which I've alluded to for years without expanding on can finally happen just before this as they start losing control. And since it'll cross Ion and Chancer V, it can set up the relative timelines for them, too.

Heh, yes indeed. I heard "Ballad of Clay Carmine" once, and then "Sovngarde Song" got me hooked.

That's what I'm doing with Machete, although unofficially they still retain their old naming as a matter of pride.

It might take me a couple posts just to get there, but currently I'm headed for the trade world of Fell Justice, somewhere in neutral space . . . I think it used to be listed in the Frontier page, it might've been lost or removed when the map was redone. I'll have to ask Ajax about that. Anyway, it's a huge center for trade, crime, secrets, and just about anything else you can think of. It's also one of the places less prone to large-scale raids, though the planet has a whole slew of dangers all its own. That might be a good place for you to start out or make your way to.

I'm not sure yet, as Ajax hasn't replied to my last post. The situation as I imagined it is a bit like Garrus's recruitment mission in ME2 (hope that means something to you) so there's a bit of confusion with the gangs as to how they're going about hunting their target. Lots of action in the warehouse district, so there's plenty of room for violence without running into each other just yet.

Once we have the story about it play out in Hammer Fall, then it'll just be a matter of time until we get it adapted into the characters' histories.

No worries on the RPs, I'm farther behind than you are. Actually, though, I did get a post up for the Gears one, and I've got Hammer Fall and Fell Justice both open in tabs to write a landing-on-Fell-Justice post. As for Shoto, you can absolutely use the TOC era tag for their members and team page, but not Russell, since he doesn't actually show up on Onyx (to my knowledge). Also, you should seriously consider adding a fifth member to Shoto, just to even things out, even if they end up removed for the Headhunters or quickly killed during the Battle of Earth.

Speaking of Earth, yes, I am doing a bit of reworking for Machete's participation. Basically, I'm rewriting a bunch of old posts from RP: Dwindling Flame (a well-known joke on the site was how Dwindling Flame dwindled, since it was supposed to revitalize the site's interest in RPs), and they'll be taking part in the defense of Japan. Those are mainly going to be just snippets about Machete, but if you want Shoto to cross over in one of them as they pass through Japan, I'd be up for it.

Sorry it's taken me a while to get around to this. Hectic life is hectic, but moving on, I'd certainly be willing to advise and proofread for Shoto. I did the same with Minuteman a while back for Jonathan Watts, and between us we managed to create a Good Article. So, do you mean the Team Shoto page itself, or all the Spartan articles within it?

Also, check AOA's sandbox wiki. There's a possible Tal image up.

TALK CONTRIBUTIONS — Thursday, December 3 2020 (Pacific Standard Time)
I figure the image would be later than earlier, since it looks like a human design.

Now then, Shoto. Well, you've already figured out that the Gammas were born around 2539, and if you want to go by what I have on the Onyx Chronicles timeline, they're abducted in 2544. Between those dates, there are only a few canon battles where they could have been orphaned, those being Kholo in '39 very early in their lives, 18 Scorpii System and Psi Serpentis System in '43, and Miridem in '44 just before conscription begins. Emerald Cove is also abandoned, but in my mind it's never attacked or glassed because more unique story opportunities come up with it just being abandoned.

Those are the options of where you might come from, and now you need a how. At first, when I was making my Gammas, I wanted to have my characters come from elsewhere instead of doing a dead-parents-revenge story because it seemed common for Spartan-IIIs. Later, however, I realized that by making them have these alternate origins, they were missing the point of being S-IIIs. They were supposed to be conscripted because they had that drive, so with Kodiak, Morgan, and Tara, I'm having their parents killed by the Covenant, though the level to which this motivates them varies. Dyne and Amber still have separate origins, so I recommend that at least some of Shoto have the classic S-III background: orphaned by the Covenant, be that civilian parents killed in the crossfire of a battle, or military parents killed in action. If you particularly want one of them to be unique, however, it's quite acceptable to have a different background. I'm just cautioning about using too many backgrounds that aren't classic S-III. Think of the classic orphaned background as a challenge to find new ideas to work with inside that. Perhaps some had siblings, not just parents, that they lost. I'm having Morgan lose both her parents while she's safe in her home on Earth, possibly (still finalizing her ideas). Point is, they should be war orphans to be selected for Spartan-III, and I can provide the machinations of my ONI agent Erin to help wrangle in any others.

Right, also, have you talked to Actene yet about putting one of his Headhunters in with Shoto early on instead of Donovan? I know he's got three in Lancer Team which would be available.

TALK - 15:43, May 30, 2014 (UTC)
I saw your message on Ahalosniper's page, and I wanted to know that you are not letting anyone down. Some people can churn out a few chapters of a story in a few days, while others can only manage a chapter a month, and there's nothing wrong with either of those. I fall squarely in the latter category, so I can certainly sympathize with you. What's important to keep in mind is that this isn't a job, this is a hobby. This is meant to be fun. You are not required to put out a certain amount of content every so often; you are instead free to work at your own pace. Don't shoot yourself in the foot by thinking that you have to keep pace with the other writers here, and don't make promises that you probably won't be able to keep. Be mindful of your limitations, and change your attitude and expectations accordingly.

As for ideas that go nowhere, anyone who has been producing creative works for some time will likely tell you that most ideas will never see the light of day. But that doesn't mean they're a waste of time. The creative process is not an exact science, it is a never-ending cycle of trial and error. You will often learn more from the ideas that don't work than you will from those that do.

Finally, on the subject of feeling like you've failed the site, trust me when I say that no one thinks that. Halo Fanon would do well to have more users like you frequenting the site. The only thing you could do to disappoint us (short of vandalism, of course) would be to leave the site altogether. We would be losing a valuable asset to the site and that would sadden us greatly. So I must urge you to keep at it and keep on trying your best, whatever your best may be.

Russell and Shepard, hm? Well, there's a 28-year or so gap between their births, but I suppose you could always have Shepard cryo-frozen for a few years to make the difference less steep. So it's possible if you want to go that way.

Always. When another writer wants to use your characters, it's always flattering.



Thank You

Hey there, I only just recently saw your message to me and your feedback. Thank you for the kind words, I still don't know my entire way around the Wiki, however I quickly took to learning how to link things to other wiki's namely Halo Nation. Any Machinima scripts or stories I have written are usually tied into the Halo Canon Story so they could technically be implicated and still work.

As far as Number/Tags go, it was only temporary as I still configure new numbers as both Jake and Trey represent my friend and my Birth dates :P Don't worry I know full well the numbers of Alpha, Beta and other known Spartan (I, II and III) Companies/Squads/Classes.

RE: Thank You

Again thank you for the kind words and hopefully I can add some content users would like to see.

Still not quite sure on messaging, talking and contacting users properly so I hope this isn't incovient.

It's great to be able to get your help cause I do actually have a problem I can't seem to fix, my new article Dan-A248 doesn't seem to show the image linked to it that I uploaded for it. It instead has a [ 1 ] and is only able to click towards the link instead of show the image. As you are a frequent and say a veteran of the site I am hoping you might be able to help me, if it isn't too much of a problem. Again thank you for your warm welcome,

Regards, Cameron

TALK - Thursday, December 3 2020
Sending this message out to all my co-writers for Halo: Vae Victis. Now I'm just going to point out the obvious here: It's November now. The story's been going on for about ten months, and I'm pleased to say that we're nearing completion. This is not to berate any of you; I'm really proud of all we've done so far with this community project. With the Annual Awards swiftly coming up, I'd just like to ask if you guys could please try to get your respective character stories written up by the end of the month, if at all possible. I've got two (very lengthy) chapters to go and an epilogue, while the rest of you are at various places within the story. I know we've got School/College/University to attend to, but if you can spare the time then please do so.

So to quote Lord Hood, one final effort is all that remains. Let's see if we can finish this fight, shall we?

Heh, the items on the checklist certainly seem applicable to who we've got already. I'm not sure about Amber, though, considering it's the Covenant Hegemony faction (or a pirate faction) which Ajax's created that will be our opposing force.



Halo: Capti

Shit, dude, I wish you would have asked sooner, I would have loved to have you involved. I don't think there's really any openings at this point, though. You can talk to me on the IRC if you think you know something that would work, but otherwise, I don't think there are any openings. Sorry :(.--IndyRevolution (talk) 20:53, February 22, 2015 (UTC)


So, uh, this is sorta awkward to ask, considering the last message, but I actually do need your help. I haven't planned fully ahead for the Covenant perspective, and it would be great if I had someone to write for their commander, Uslo' Montagee. I'm not so sure about Shoto, since there are already a bunch of characters involved as it is, and I don't want to make things too complicated. Anyways, if you're still interested, it would be great if you could contact me via the IRC.--IndyRevolution (talk) 02:45, February 26, 2015 (UTC)

Irk RP, and stuff

Yeah man, just shoot me a message on Xbox if you wanna brainstorm or next time on IRK. Also, was dickin around and reading on the site, stumbled onto your sandbox and saw A109.

I think I trust you by now. Mind your punctuation in it, though. I've gotta catch you on Skype at some point, I wanted to ask about combining RHO AIAS with a similar concept I've got on the Gamma Company page called HUMILITY, since they both fill the same role of cancelled operation which might've seen all the Gammas killed.

Aye, I'll be around, but I've got a few projects to square away today, so I'll be on late, probably in the AMs your time. Tomorrow has a better outlook, and if we miss each other then, I'll just show up bright and early Sunday.



HUMILITY or RHO AIAS

We're terrible at coordination. So screw it, we'll do this the old phone-tag talk page way. On The Missing Wall, you bring up an Operation: RHO AIAS, which is basically an aborted plan for a PROMETHEUS/TORPEDO-esque op in which all the Gammas get killed. I've got a similar idea on Gamma Company's page, HUMILITY, which is basically the same premise, just fleshed out a bit more to include the canonical Unyielding Hierophant. I think we ought to double up and combine them, as we did for Forsaken Solitude, so would you prefer it to be HUMILITY or have you fleshed out the idea for RHO AIAS much? Regards, That Damn Sniper.

Ah, Lomi got one of those, too. It's called Windows 10.

Aye, sort of. Meridian was planned to be the op's launch point, but it was glassed before the op could be gotten underway. What with it being related to the events of Halo 5, though, if it means there's some conflict there, we could always just make it another original creation planet.

I've actually got some details on Gamma Company's page, under the Deployment section; since we have so many users with their own teams and wanting to do their own things with them, I'd written it that they never fully reunited after being split up for the Battle of Earth. Most were rolled into the S-IV Program, so there'd be Shoto on Infinity (though some precautions, I'm sure would need to be taken to wall them off and prevent the knowledge the IIIs were child soldiers from spreading too far, though given how important Infinity is, I'm sure everyone aboard has signed ONI non-disclosures anyway); some were recruited by ONI, and others went their separate ways, a few even into the civilian life. I wrote it so anything's really possible for whatever anyone wants to do.

There's a note about the story on the Gamma Company page, but yeah, I'm up for trying to alternate posts or something to fill out the storyline. We may need to re-plot it, though, as I can't remember entirely if everything still matches up to where the new, accordion-scrunched-up timeline is, what with Halo 5 moving everything back. I still have the plot we'd worked out, I believe. I can send it on Skype if you never got it.

Certainly, sounds good to me. In terms of early plans, I imagine they'll make a push for an embattled hangar to get a Pelican out while most others run for the Bumblebee life pods.

Even without an article, have any general concepts for Fletcher yet? Scenarios you'd like to see them involved in, got a particular idea for a way to start out?

I dunno, I think we should probably move to regroup immediately to get us into contact with other players. When we go off on our own, we essentially bottle ourselves. It makes us less reliant on posts by others, but isolation's not gone well in my own history with RPs. But we'll see what happens--I anticipate the two of us having a Pelican while everyone else's in Bumblebees would make it important we help the Captain regroup everyone, but I could be overestimating our importance.

I did have a bit of an idea for leaving the ship, and that's to really turn it into a struggle--one of our characters pulls the other out of a collapsed section, miss their lifeboat, and resolve to brave the dangers of the hangar: Covenant shooting at us while we try to prep and launch a Pelican, even risk trying to pick up a Warthog or Tank to bring with us as the hangar burns and falls apart if a Spartan shows up to help.

Well, where we're currently at in plans, thanks to the giant accordion-style crushing of timelines, Blake is about 9 years old, so he's not really gonna be doing much (if he even exists anymore, which I kinda doubt, really). We've gotta do some more working out about Dyne and his timeline, though, because he's only on Talitsa for a few months, now. There's a timeline on my sandbox page, though I may move Dyne's departure back a month or two.

Not a problem friendo. The first one was more of an introduction to get people used to the whole thing, I posted a summary on the talk page of the RP if you want to know what happened.


So, by popular demand, the RP's next session will be occurring tonight, please arrive at 1900-1930 Eastern Standard Time (EST) if you're up for it.--Minuteman 2492 (talk) 21:44, May 10, 2017 (UTC)
