Continuing from the Fanon discussion thread. A thread for the editors of the Bravo Wiki to collaborate, plan and discuss. If you are actually, surprisingly and/or strangely interested in this series then come on down, we won't bite!
The Ship template is broken; when I put it in the Sword's page, and press preview, it's all messed up: the Introduction, Service History, and Weapons and Complements texts go to the right side of the page and suffer some sort of infobox-mutation. It's hard to explain. What's up with that?

I don't know. I went through all protocol, but decided not to make it. I thought about adding it then Rollbacking it, so as to allow Dab or Sean to see the problem, and use an earlier version, but decided against it.
I figured out that for some jobs some kinds of stones are actually better then some of the best mettles! So long as you keep in mind the concept of "mettle dents but stone cracks" stone and mettle joining forces is actually better then both alone.

Fire is unique. I think it is similar to plasma though.
Fire the energy may not be plasma the energy, but fire isn't solid, liquid, or gas. The state of matter fire is in is plasma, but the energy plasma is not the same thing.
All plasma is is ionized gas. I do not know what fire is, but it seems closest to either gas or plasma. Plasma actually is considered the fourth form of matter. Or at least I think I read that somewhere. Do not take my word for it. Look it up first.
Fire is state of matter plasma yes, the energy plasma is in fact ionized gas. Did you know the light from ionizing gas focused down lenses into as small a light as possible will cause so much radiation to travel with the light it will burn what its shown on?
Their is something I'm currently trying to figure out.
I most certainly hope so, but sadly in the world out side the internet, I'm not the one who pays the bill, and natural selection thinks it is selecting them, but its actually selecting me, and I have to be a sacrifice for their sins. Lesson to be learned from this, if some one else has to depend on you to pay the bill, be competent.
You know Arbiter, I just had a horrible realization, if you can't have me in your life you will be left with only 4 fingered Kig-yar who are hired to sabatash peace treaties. I've looked around, I haven't found any other Kig-yar you can call friend who are still alive. Although I admit I haven't finished looking for remnants of flaming grunt studios.
Today I have taken a hand made wooded club, a shard of stone, and combined them making a club that simulates a axe. I know the stone will shatter if you tried using it as a axe for its not a axe head worthy stone, its not as sharp as mettle, dose nothing againced modern armor, but it is very pretty looking, produced happiness endorphins to do something crafty, and its still pretty cool.
On a important note, I was thinking of making a page for Kai and Slightly Drifts, but am not sure that's necessary.
No one can actually make a stone blade. You can make a stone head for an axe or spear, but you cannot make an entire blade out of flint or anything like that. It gets to a point where it is just to delicate to be of use.
Stone age tools aren't meant to be a perminate solution in the first place, in fact the only stone age people ever to exist either lived that way on purpose, of after a few years they got settled then built a house with a fence and begun planting seeds. The first cities to ever be built where built for protection and defense.
A lot of stones are actually stronger then mettle if you ever find them, but mettle can still break them with ease because it dents while stone cracks, and like wood stone can be split. Such tools are unnecessary when you have more perminate tools, but they do have their time.
Say you have 30 men, they are in a forest full of rocky terrain and you can't or shouldn't contact a drop ship for supplies, and of the 30 men, only 1 of them has a gun and only 30 shots. You could either have only 1 man armed, or you can have 1 man with a gun and craft some "this will do for now tools". A stone age axe or spear for the other 29 can mean only using the gunshots for something its worth it on.
This wiki's about a series of RPs focusing on a group called Task Force Bravo (composed of ODSTs, exceptions being the experimental SPARTAN-I DAB-101, the Heretic Elite named Sasuun 'Grtam, and ONI agent Locke) and their missions throughout the War. Currently, they are participating in the Battle of Installation 00.
ReDquinox wrote: Alright, his name is Damian Christopher Bristow, service number 83765-72694-DB. He has green eyes, and brown/red hair. He stands 1.94m tall. He has a scar from a plasma burn on his neck.
The wiki says they were used in airborne assaults: they were transported in Pelicans and dropped off near their objective. If you look at the ODSTs in Halo 3, they have the emblem of the 7th on their shoulder pads.
Lance Corporal Damian Christopher Bristow was born on March 14th 2526 on the planet Charybdis IX. When Charybdis IX was invaded, his father was killed. His family went to the Rubble, like many other refugees. At the age of thirteen, he saw his mother commit suicide in a depression. With no one left but his older brother, who was almost always out of house, he decided to leave the Rubble and start a new life on Reach.
In 2541, he enlisted in the UNSC Army. After a couple of years, he was transferred to the 5th Shock Troops Battalion. He fought in multiple major battles, such as the Siege of Paris IV, the Fall of Reach and the Battle of Earth.
During the Battle of Installation 00, Bristow and his squad were deployed to assist John-117, however almost all of the squad died in a surprise Flood attack before they even had reached the Spartan.
you know that reminds me, the other night I was thinking, I understand why odsts don't wear Spartan armor. *relives the horrors of watching a unagmentated human try to put it on* But theirs no reason in the world a odst can't have a over shield.
Akatosh, I personally do not think it makes sense when a UNSC soldier has hair longer than a crew cut. That white haired spartan in Halo: Legends/ The Babysitter and your ODST character do not seem to fit with the UNSC dress and appearance. Wouldn't it be easier to just put a helmet on instead of having to bunch your hair into it?
I wouldn't know as I do not have hair, but I am curious.
Regardless she is your character to do with as you will. I am merely offering advice on what I think makes more sense.
Different battles and chapters in the Bravo story come to a close, but the actual RP doesn't. Vlassamee will be a bit of a recurring character where it makes sense for him to appear, but with sangheilian politics in turmoil and his handler dead he is essentially a mercenary with access to some of the best equipment the Covenant ever produced. I'm thinking he will be independent but still allied with the UNSC and Swords of Sangheilios.
In Halo, it will take 21 assault rifle shots to kill, and in CoD 8. When a shotgun blast can do the work of twenty-one assault rifle shots, and a sniper round the work of twelve, a power weapon becomes truly powerful. When a shotgun blast or sniper round can do the work of eight bullets, it loses some of its power - if, in Halo, you could spawn with shotguns, rocket launchers, snipers, and grenade launchers, it would be chaos everywhere - rockets would fill the air, and you would be sniped as you spawn. But I have seen that CoD is not filled with RPG-wielding morons, nor do they have the power they would in Halo - because eight assault rifle rounds will do same work.
I don't agree with all this anti-COD harshness. Sure, it's not the best game, but it's not bad. I get it, Halo and COD have a huge and understandable rivalry, and it's "not right" to root for the other side. But, COD used to be a great franchise, just like Halo. It still probably has a great community, just like Halo. And it has a majority in its population who look down on the rivals, just like Halo. We're not too different after all.
The screaming players of any game are the only ones who represent their age group: one does not hear, thus not judge, the silent ten-year-olds, thus one assumes they are mature and older. As for the screaming fifteen-year-olds, one assumes they are ten.
ReDquinox wrote: But concerning the community, the people playing CoD usually are a bunch of jerks and screaming ten year olds.
*Stereotypically. Just like the stereotypical RPG fan (According to the internet) is a 40 year-old living in their mother's basement. I don't know you well, Red, but I'd like to assume that you don't fit that description.
I know just how it feels, everyone says that Kig-yar are nothing but pure evil, but, I have observed this....
Covenant first discover them, they have no true military but what they do have they use to fight back with guerilla tactics while hiding in the asteroids, hundreds of years less advanced then the unsc and only having 1 star system, it took decades for them to be conquered while the human race nearly went extinced in 25 years having many star systems. But the reality is they lasted so long by hiding not by fighting, and did not truly stand a chance. They never wanted to join, they wanted to just stay alive.
Contact harvest, unggoy invasion, after many Kig-yar nesting grounds got obliterated the Kig-yar fight back to protect their children.
contact harvest, chur'R-yar gets called a heretic, in the covenant this means your going to die, so her mate Zar attempts to protect her, showing that male Kig-yar have honor.
the rubble, after living peacefully with humans for some time truth orders the attack, the Kig-yar heartbroken cry out "do we really have to betray the humans?" showing they have a sense of friendship.
on halo, a group of Kig-yar get put under the command of a unggoy, they in the end learn he isn't so bad and call him a friend, despite unggoy being the enemy of Kig-yar.
human covenant war ends, Kig-yar emedeantly go right back to trying to be friends with the innes, showing they still, never wanted to betray them.
how ever the name of that one human planet is spelled, Kig-yar in large population live peacefully with the humans and do not try to kill them, showing they are willing to bond with non Kig-yar.
also in canon Kig-yar get along with humans better then any other species in halo, possibly except sangheili, but as in halo 4 both sangheili and Kig-yar attack humans that is still up for debate.
mother Kig-yar, they have been known to continue to fight to protect their nest even when they know they are going to lose, showing they are caring parents.
yes a lot of Kig-yar are evil, but no 2 clans are alike and their is good among them, same as everyone else.
So, with multiple image types (screenshots, Landfall, Nightfall) on the "Bravo Collage" on the main page, should we decide upon a single source type for images? Games would be the best, for being the most abundant, but as new Halo 3 and ODST screenshots are inaccessible, they might be difficult to find.
As it it, the "Collage" looks a but strange, displaying Chyenka with an image from Landfall, whereas Hartley is an ODST from Halo 3.
