Fall of Reach – Chapters 1-3 [/r/HBC]

Afterbang over on /r/Halo has started a Halo Book Club, and we’re currently going through The Fall of Reach by Eric Nylund. I have permission to post the trivia and discussion points afterbang comes up with, and it’s a good thing – my answers wouldn’t make sense without them!

The original /r/Halo post can be found here.

Please note I had to peek for most of the trivia answers.

/r/Halo’s Book Club – a journey begins

As I mentioned in the last post /r/Halo has been a discovery for me, and one that I’m glad to have had.

One of the reasons for this is the book club they recently started, with The Fall of Reach being first on the list.

It’s always hard to find time to read, and having a schedule like this really helps me to plan ahead and carve out a space so I can keep up.

I’ve received permission from the mod who set this up – Afterbang – to post my answers to the questions he poses from each chapter here on Reactive Bias. That way you can follow along with me and I get to keep all my Halo thoughts in one place. Nice!

Feel free to join us over on /r/Halo or leave me your thoughts in the comments as I post each set of questions and my reactions. I’ve found AB’s questions help me look at the text in new ways, and I’m seeing things I didn’t notice before.

Halo Ann. Ring

The more you look the more there is

Good stuff, and reminds me of one of the strengths of the Halo Universe – the more you look, the more there is.

3 Good Finds – /r/Halo, the Halo Archive and Haruspis

The Halo Community continues to surprise me, not only in all the ways it expresses itself but in the all the different places it can be found.

Another way of putting it is when I hear of millions and millions of people buying a Halo game it’s easy to forget that it doesn’t just mean another campaign to play – it means all the people who directly contribute to the community just got a shot in the arm.

More inspiration, more content, and more things for me to react to! I like it 🙂

That said, here are three locations I’ve headed to recently and I encourage you to check out all the Halo goodness they have to offer:

/r/Halo – I’ve spent more time here after CGP Grey put me onto the helpfulness of Reddit, and I have to say it’s the best format I’ve come across for talking about and seeing the new shiny about anything Halo.

There’s even a /r/HaloStory subreddit (among others) where you can go specifically just for good Halo Universe bits. Should you check it out? Yes you should!

Halo Archive A lore-centric Halo site with the goal of “asking the ‘whys and hows’ of our favorite universe”, the site has a lot to offer including their own forum, in-depth articles, and a podcast – the first one just up this week and definitely worth a listen!

One of the things I enjoy about the site in the professionalism – these guys care about what they’re doing and it shows.

It must also be stated that I’m partial to the admins of the site, as they are fellow Ancilla. I may blog on Reactive Bias, but there a few other biases you need to know about. Head over to the Halo Archive!

Haruspis – Written by a man who loves both reading and gaming, you’ll find a detailed level-by-level analysis (here’s the first) of each level in Halo 4 as well as his “30 Days of Halo” on his site.

Great postings here on different parts of the fiction, and that’s something I always enjoy.

While these sites are not new and I’m certainty not the first person to discover them, they’ve recently come to my attention and I’m a better Halo fan because of it.
