    Alright lets get this started.

    You are Gunnery Sergeant Roland M. Lowell. You are an ODST of the 22nd Tactical. The year is 2253 and it is the month of October after the end of the Covenant War. Humanity and the Sangheili have begun to rebuild and a budding alliance is in the works.

    You and the entire 22nd have been assigned to the UNSC Autumn's Rebirth, a tribute to the 22nds old assignment and the venerable frigate UNSC Pillar of Autumn. You are currently on deployment on a patrol on the outskirts of Human space, near several Jiralhanae controlled planets.

    You are part of Bravo Squad. Your CO is Lieutenant Samuel P. Winthrop. You have yet to make the acquaintance of your four other squad mates. You are currently in the armory and have picked up your equipment from the Quartermaster.

    The quartermaster prods you "ODST right? Okay, then here is your gear brand new shipment from the resupply the other day. You won't need to trade in your old beaten gear, but if you bring it in you can trade it for some extra credits. All depending on the condition of course."
    >> Helljumper/ODST Quest Ouroboros !!QxtsrZs7+PX 10/23/10(Sat)19:26 No.12548446
    "Oh... Wait a second there boy! That's the wrong equipment, hmm. Let me see this list, it appears I have mixed up your requisition with someone else. So then, what was your name again? Lowell, okay. Now what's your specialization? I'll need to know to get you the right gear? So what'll it be?"

    The quartermaster awaits your response.

    >So what type of specialist will you be /tg/?

    Alright well you could be a comms man, but that's not usually how ODST units operate. You are given a mission brief, get dropped and complete the mission. Not much contact with command until after mission is complete and then you leave.So Comms man is not very viable, Demo or Sharpshooter is more common.

    Sorry about that. I just read that it was Halcyon and just didn't write that correct.

    You quickly return the salute, pickup your trunk and leave the armory. You travel the halls down to your quarters. The room is setup with 6 beds, low on the floor, along the opposing wall. Only one of the beds does not have a trunk in front of it, the one farthest to the left. You take your gear to the open bed and place it down. You open your trunk and go through your equipment.

    You have been issued a:
    BR55 Battle Rifle
    M6D Pistol
    A MK. VIII Special Comms System
    ODST Battle Armor w/ additional power supply for Comms
    Combat Knife
    M7S Caseless Submachine Gun
    Various Ammo, grenades, and general additional pieces.

    As you are going through your gear you are approach by a female figure. She walk up to you and introduces herself, "Good to meet you I'm Adrianna. You must be new squad member. What was your name again? Roland, ah right? So what's..."

    "Stop bugging the newbie Adry. Let him get settled before you go bugging him?" A man calls from across the room on the last bed to the right.

    "Shut it Charles, I'm just trying to be friendly! Don't mind him. So what is your specialty?"

    Also, what is our assignment? Just monitor the brutes before something goes wrong and we have to fight? Like, why are we even landing? Shouldn't we just observe from space and maybe try to fuck with their communications so they start infighting and forget about raiding humie colonies?

    In case it's not obvious, most of us are/were hoping for something other than a pen and paper version of Halo 3, which is why we're not trying for super tough badass heavy weapons guy or lone wolf badass marksman stereotypes and why I'm disappointed the OP decided to set a helljumper quest after or during the human/covenant war rather than during the insurgency, though that last part is just personal opinion, I'm sure something good can still come from this.

    ""Earth? Very nice, although in the past year it must be really fucked up. Covies did a number on her when they attacked. Hopefully she's been fixed up a little, some mighty beautiful places there. And from America no less, well then."

    She looks off for a second wistfully. "Oh me? I'm from Ariel. Got attacked a while back during the War. But now its been running rather peacefully."

    "As for why we are out here? Well the brutes may not seem like much of a threat, but they can be rather nasty given the chance. They still hate us from the War and they started to keep to themselves. However its come to attention that in recent months small brute fleets have been popping up and raiding colony worlds. So we're out here patrolling to keep them in check. As for our planetary patrols, well your guess is as good as mine. They tell us its too keep our presence known. But then why don't we just shoot off a few MACs in orbit and scare them a little. Honestly I have no idea why."

    Didn't the Covenant (minus the Saghelli) still continue to exist after the events of Halo 3? I mean, sure, High Charity and the top three Prophets were destroyed, but the rest of the Covenant remained. In fact, wasn't it kind of hinted at that the war would continue?

    Brutes still held top spot but the Prophets vanished, either died off or fled. Eventually the Brutes turned against each other (2559). Jackals went back to marauding, nothing about the others through. New Halo book coming out (Not the Forerunner trilogy) takes place post-war, should help clear some up.
