In Topic: Campaign Game contradiction with Fiction (SPOILERS)

PD:By the way, i just read Dani?s article in Forward, about the datapads this weekend. I recommend it so much. It made me remember the day i was reading an article about Medicant Bias in Ascendant Justice and I became a Fan. Great Work

MB was one of the greatest stories in a game that you dont have to know about to play that game. I dont think we know all about the datapads yet, but i do think its on track to being up there with MB in that category :)

New finalized cover jacket up, with a summary of the plot. Precursors, Forerunner society, and some odd naming conventions. But yeah, seriously excited for this book. I've already preordered mine.

not all the odd a naming convention since the engineers (who were made by the forerunners) have pretty long odd names themselves :D

also do want this book!

i guess im somewhere in the middle - i am not too impressed with her desire to shoehorn current themes into a plot that already has its own insurrectionists and morally questionable things, but since i havent read any of her halo stuff besides evolutions it is hard to tell if she is gonna shoehorn in. That said she wrote a decent piece in evolutions - she managed to make it human without making it too cheesy or forced. Ill reserve judgement, but frankly im more exicted by the forerunner trilogy :D ps. after the debacle of canonicty that is reach I dont think we can hate too much on her if she goes wild :P

i keep a halo timeline of events on my own to keep some halo comic makers i know informed, and ever since reach came out I havent had the heart to try and wade through the poor work that was put into keeping halo reach and halo FoR in sync. Its a mess and its going to require a new rewrite of FoR at the least (and they just did that in amoney grap ironically).

hahahahahahaha. Boba Fett? He who has problems with Jedi since they killed his father? This lady sounds like a real winner.

guess what, shes writing a trilogy of halo books :P

If you haven't checked out the Sparkcast, I really suggest people do. Bear sounds like a grandpa, but he seems keenly aware of what he's doing and it sounds like 343i is giving him the space he needs. On one hand I feel like I should pick up his earlier work to read before this one, but I'm a busy guy and who am I kidding? I'm gonna get the book when it comes out anyhow.

i was very impressed with the sparkcast, and it only made me more excited for the awesomeness of the new book
