As of January 1, 2013, there will be a new Echo Company group coming to dA. This group is meant to reboot the timeline and create consistency in the fiction that will allow for members to cooperate and collaborate with everyone on the same page. Our goals are to:
-Involve all devoted group members in the recreation of our origin. (Founding, Training, Location, Timeline, Time frame...and future as SPARTAN IVs)
-Erase any inconsistency in the canon of the Halo universe. (If there is any conflicting events, vote on the one that make the most sense)
-Give members more power of authority. (Organizing in-game events as well as group contests)
-Establishing formatted personnel files. (For original SPARTAN IIIs and upcoming SPARTAN IVs as well as any other UNSC characters)
-Create content for the Echo Company website. (Still in development)
This will be to reward the active members who are focused on expanding the story and creating a richer and more diverse universe for others to experience. Those who prefer watching posts and viewing art will not need to switch over because any art that is added to Echo Company Elite will be shown in the original group.
In the meantime, I ask that anyone who has plans for the creation of SPARTAN IV characters hold off on posting their thoughts until the creation of ECE. This will prevent those without the game from having anything spoiled as soon as it comes out and it will allow those interested to create their characters together, possibly with a common history.
Halo is not dead. There are 3 new games and Echo Company will be following every step of the way.
