    Famous Quote: "I don't hate you. I am just morally ambiguous towards your well-being."

    "The Interview"


    Q: Carpe! Missed you buddy. I have not heard from you in a long time. How have you been? What's New? Oh, and Congratulations of being the member spotlight of August? You must be feeling special.
    A: Thank you sir! Things have been going well, I am about to head back to school soon where I can resume my life. This summer has been pretty slow, and FC has been turbulent. I am looking forward to getting back to my studies.

    Q: Tell me again the story behind your gamertag.
    A:Carpe Vexillum means Seize the Flag in Latin. This originates from an Old Halo PC clan that I use to be apart of from age 13-19. They were big in the scene of Heavy Weapons game types. That means Rocket launcher and fuel rod starts only. (the old arching fuel rod) They are still around today with a few other large clans of about 40-60 members. That group literally raised me, guys and gals from 17-63 years old. My original internet Alias was . . . Anodyne. Here is an old relic from that time. A clan game of Blood Gulch.



    Q: Interesting... Carpe. I know you have been around FC awhile. How long exactly? How did you hear about Forerunner Conflict?
    A: Three years I have been in the community. I first heard about FC after my old community DRO gaming fell apart. My recruiter was Bodacious Bacon.

    Q: Everyone went through a boot camp. Do you remember your boot camp? Who was your drill instructor? Any "memorable" moments?
    A: I do not. I did not. I am kinda sad, but my bootcamp was relaxed and very unmemorable.

    Q: Did FC have any major impact in your life at all? Maybe it helped you see things in a unique perspective?
    A: Yes, FC has had both positive and negative effects in my life. Its helped me understand more about people in large numbers and niche groups.


    Q: Any chance we will see you making another LASO/Co-Op Campaign series?
    A: If the proper people got interested and there was time. maaaybe.

    Q: If I made you a pizza, what toppings would you want on it?
    A: Pepperoni. . . and PAIN! *Arnold impression*

    Q: If you could be anything in the Halo Universe, what would it be, and why?
    A: Probably an AI. I love knowledge, helping, and lasting life.

    Q: Master Chief collection is coming out in November this year. FC is preparing for it. What would you like FC to capitalize on when we move to this game?
    A: I want FC to make a big push to make this place a fun and respectful place to play Halo. A place that new and returning Halo players can feel comfortable and will want to go when they pop that disk into their fancy new console.


    Q: Lastly, this is your chance to say anything to the FC Community. Keep it respectful. Any words of wisdom? Say your peace!
    A: Some people don't know what its like out of the city on their feet, at night anyway. Standing out there you can look up and... stars, you've never seen so many, they sky is blazing with them. You need real darkness, to see stars. When things are really dark, as dark as they can get, you see so much more. So many wonderful things. Sometimes things will get darker for you than they do for the rest of us. You've got to see those moments as something special, because their showing you things. A way of looking at the world that no one else will ever, ever understand. That's a blessing, not a curse. So remember to stay strong FC. We can and will get through the hard times together.
