I found this sight and it has a LOT of Halo story on it.
---->Halo Story Page<----
If you look at the side links and find “Time Line” near the bottom click on it. The time line starts off at year 2160, when the hell did bungie make Halo story so prior to the ORION Project? I thought the ORION Project was one of the earliest parts of the human section of Halo’s story.
If you go to Feb11 2525 at the end it seems like a grunt triggered the human, covenant war.
I just thought it was odd that such an information rich sight would be so unknown to the community, I found it months ago and just remembered it today, I never see anyone talking about it.
