This is a reblog from Halo Waypoint:
By GrimBrother One –
Needless to say, it’s been incredibly exciting for us to finally be able to share this encyclopedic feature with all of you, and we wanted to take a few minutes to talk about some of the plans we’ve got for growing the content both now and in the future. The word “growth” is important to focus on here. Halo’s universe is absolutely massive, and giving the rich palette of characters, worlds, and technology the care and attention they deserve is something that takes time and planning. Very soon you will begin to see the stable of content grow through regular updates and additions. Through it all, you can be confident in knowing that we adore this universe just as much as you do, and are excited to create and grow new ways for this incredible community to experience it all.
The feature you are reading right now is just one of those ways we are looking to bring you more fiction and narrative content. After a successful stint as part of the Halo Bulletin, Canon Fodder is now being spun off into its own blog! Each week, we’ll be bringing you various glimpses into the vast Halo narrative, from highlighting new Universe articles to deep dives into some of the more hidden corners of the fiction. (HFFL: Hmm, sounds like something I just wrote about, huh? Oni Masks…) We’ll also be bringing you insight into some of the creative processes that go into both crafting and curating an ever-expanding universe across multiple mediums.
We hope that fiction fans will find the Universe section of HaloWaypoint.com and the Halo Channel to be a place where you can dig deeper into the Halo lore, even when exploring subjects you might think you already know everything about! Keen-eyed fans have already spotted some of the brand new information we’ve begun seeding into various entries, from finding out Fred-104’s full name (HFFL: It’s Frederic Ellsworth) to the reveal of the Arbiter’s Sangheili faction (HFFL: Known as the “Swords of Sanghelios”). Looking for more details on vehicle and weapon variants? Want to learn more about the Yonhet, the new species introduced in Halo: Nightfall? We’ve got you covered. As time rolls on, we’ll be adding and updating more and more entries and information, from factions and locations to technology and timeline events. It’s our hope that each one of you in the faithful and fervent Halo community will come along for the ride as we aim to make 2015 Halo’s best and most exciting year ever.
