Topic: A 'Glossary' in Silentium... please?

Greg... may your Word Processor live forever!

Initial confession: I am not a 'gamer', and have spent minimal time with Halo in game format. Hence, I am a hard-core sci-fi guy stepping into unfamiliar territory most things 'Halo'... which is, obviously, a well-developed mythology and ethos to the gamers...

When reading Book 1 of your Forerunner series, I became a bit lost in the details... so I back=tracked, started at the beginning, and constructed a Glossary of terms, concepts and important characters (pencil-scribbles in every open space in the back of the book, with annotations of chapters). This helped me immensely in Book 2, and I continued to add to it along the way... bread-crumbs for Book 3... I'm ready, bring it on!

Greg, can't wait for Book 3... but for the non-gaming Halo people, the sci-fi readers who don't 'do' gaming... ? a Glossary in Silentium to help the un-initiated thru the Halo Universe??

Thanks.

A good idea, but I don't know if we'll have time to construct one. The Internet is full of excellent glossaries and definitions for HALO, so first try

and see what resources are available.
