Welcome to the Halo Universe!

Welcome to the Halo Universe forum!

If you have come looking for awesome discussion about the fiction of the Halo Universe, then you’ve come to the right place. Here are some handy tips to help you get the most out of your stay!

What’s on the menu?

The Halo Franchise is blessed with an amazingly rich and far-reaching fiction covering over 100,000 years of human & alien history, honed over a decade of incredible storytelling. This forum is for fans to come and discuss the various elements of the Halo story in fun, passionate, and respectful conversation.

Where can I find the story?

The Halo Universe spans 10 years of multiple mediums, including books, games, comics, and animated films. Oftentimes even long-time fans are surprised at how many ways there are to find pieces of the Halo story. At the bottom of this post you can find a handy list of different ways you can experience the Halo story, though there is always more just around the corner!

What is this “canon” you speak of?

This is a term you will probably hear quite a bit throughout this forum. Generally, “canon” refers to the aspects of a story that are considered “official” or “genuine” in relation to the entire franchise as a whole. That being said, it is important to remember that large works of fiction such as Halo are certainly always a work-in-progress, and can sometimes have different elements that might see their position in the overarching fiction become adjusted over time. Halo isn’t the first franchise to see this, and most certainly won’t be the last.

What DOES & DOESN’T belong in this forum?

Here are some examples of topics that you might see, and whether or not they go in this particular forum…

“What is that crazy planet thing in the sky during ‘x’ level?!” YES!

“What do you think happened to Jun?” YES!

“Hey, look at my new fan-fiction about Sgt Johnson and that Elite from the Halo CE Legendary ending!” NOPE! That would go in the Community Creations forum.

“Theories About New UNSC FTL Technology” YES!

“Armor Lock is AWESOME! Look at my stats!” NOPE, TRY AGAIN! You are probably looking for the Games Category

Lemme guess, there are rules?

Correct, my good friend! This forum, like all the others on Halo Waypoint, fall under the general Forum Rules and Guidelines. In general though, we want to foster an atmosphere of informative and enlightening discussion, where fans of all experience and knowledge levels can come and talk about this universe we love so much. Feeling overly aggressive? Go shoot a Brute! You keep it clean, we don’t get mean. <3
So, enjoy your stay, and Happy Halo Story Talk!
