Letter From The Author

If you were to tell back in 2006 that I would be writing such an important part of this community, I'd tell you to get your head checked out. When I joined this community in the summer of 2006, I had only done so the enjoy playing with an organized, fun, respectable group of people while simulating a galactic war. The concept was cool, and at a young fourteen, I was thrilled to be apart of it.

Here we stand now, at the unveiling of the new Forerunner Conflict Lore and it's main story, Forerunner Conflict: A History of War.

When writing this simple and smooth backstory to Forerunner Conflict, it struck me how important the Lore is for this community, even more than I had first thought. The Lore is the reason we are all here, why the R.E.D.D. and B.L.U.E. fight every Sunday. It is the rank you hold, the faction you serve, the color you display on your Halo Spartan. It is the face you put on when on these boards, and the voice you speak on Battle Nights. You are the lore, and I want to bring that to the forefront.

With this new story and setup, small, detailed stories of the universe will always be appearing to satisfy those who require more. For those who would rather contribute, you also have the option to do so now, thus adding to the community for years to come.

Forerunner Conflict: A History of War will continue the saga as you, the members live it. The battles you fight, the events in the community you partake in, and the name you make for yourself by benefiting the community, will all appear in our epic as time weaves onwards. The story will be determined be you Forerunner Conflict, you will determine how this story ends.

It has been an honor and a pleasure to be asked and entrusted to write such an essential part of a community I have truly loved for the six plus years I've spent here. I look forward to seeing it progress onwards into the future. With my activity time becoming limited as I approach my deployment, I want to pass this along to you, the community, as a thank you for everything it has done for me.

I offer one anecdote that struck me while writing these words. Learn The Lore. Live The Lore. Love The Lore.

To you, the community, and the members, I officially would like to welcome you all to Forerunner Conflict: A History of War.
