Flood History Revision Prep Work

Some of you may know that early this year I released [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=41481924]The History of The Flood Forum 2nd Edition[/url]. It was a continuation on the work of xTRIGGER092x, and his original History of The Flood forum. Well, more or less immediately after I first released it, I was given requests for events that needed to be added to the history, and I remembered events that I had yet to add. Beyond that, there's been another entire year of Flood Forum history to catalog and report. However, like last time I simply don't have the manpower or manwillpower or manperseverance to try and search through all of these events, and make sure I don't miss any. So, I'm calling on The Flood, like I did last time, to help me in the effort to create a comprehensive history of The Flood forum. Here is a list of the events that I know need to be added, that were not added last time. If you have a suggestion of an even that needs to be added, I will take it, and then post it in this list so that more people can provide information. [i]Known information will be in italics or a [url]url[/url] under each selection[/i] ^-^Birth of The Flood [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=12054]Thread[/url] ^-^VII Toast [i]Recieved messages with information[/i] Element Leaf's group(The Agency) [i]Recieved messages with information[/i] ^-^Failed Porch Day 2010 [i]recieved messages with information[/i] ^-^Laser Wars [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=7304752]One Thread[/url] [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=3803928]Another Thread[/url] [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=204959]Another Thread[/url] [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=257990]Another Thread[/url] [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=432010]Another Thread[/url] ^-^Invading Bungie Studios [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=53039516]The Thread[/url] ^-^Schwippy Christmas tree [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=14928579]2007[/url] [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=28197813]2008[/url] I would also be open to any revisions or extra information that could be added to events currently in the forum history. Go through and read it, and post any changes you might make to it. I plan to post The Flood revised history, some time before the end of January. Now get cracking Flood forum. I'll be bumping this thread up, and I don't care who knows it. [Edited on 01.20.2011 7:58 PM PST]

  • Does anyone know when Element Leaf's Group, The Agency, was active. I can't seem to find anything that would show me when that was going on, and I would like some specifics. I'm removing slender man because he is more of an internet phenomenon than a Flood phenomenon. [Edited on 01.20.2011 7:57 PM PST]

The latter will be indicated with a ^-^. The original list will be kept here. Kitchen 8: I already had it. Showering with sister&Complete Story Thread&14 inch butt hair thread&My Brother Just Died: Singular threads won't be recorded unless they highlight a larger phenomena, or part of a group thing. Davestar, l8te, Mr. Crapper: Nothing provided that was negative about either member. I put members who had some effect on the community in this, or in the Flood Hall of Fame. Wasn't enough for either to happen. Halo2girl Christmas, MW2 Thread, Flood School Day: Nothing found, or there was too many threads that could be construed to be that thread.

  • Anyone remember that Porch Day '10 and Injury Day? Both of which I started by asking a potentially catastrophic question.

  • What about that Reverend Brown guy I think his name was, I can't quite remember for sure but he had some solid trolls about religion that really had some people going for quite some time. If somebody saved any of his threads i'd like to read them again.

How close did it actually come to exceeding.[/quote] "It was cold, but our very sweat and blood warmed us to overcome our challenge. Our goal: Poop on Achronos desk, Bungie HQ. General Troll, his team and I were sent in first. My blood chills me when I think back to the events of that day. We had cleared the first 5 floors marvelously, I was impressed. It was a trap. Bungie employees were sent to rid of us. I couldn't allow any more of my troopers to die. I grabbed General Trolls rifle. I sprinted into the heat of battle. Firing my weapon, I could see the Grim Reaper waiting for me. I felt the warmth of the bullets shredding through my skin, and the cold of the sinister ice of death reaching me. I was dead, but it was not in vain. I had seen my team advance. I gave General Troll my pistol. "Tell them to make it count," I said. Alas, the floor was empty. I could hear my troopers on the next few floors in the cold and silent hallows of death. I had awoken moments later. I stared at my hands. I jumped right off the ground. "Floor 10." My team had breached through the door as I shot the Bungie sergeant. General Troll was shocked. I reached my hand out. He shook it, and as he pulled it away, I noticed my pistol in my hand. He nodded, and walked. I heard on the radio that one of the generals had encountered the secret, ultimate weapon of Bungie, Stosh' mom. The poor soldier, he did not make it. We, we found the body. No pants. He, he did not make it. He, he was one of the bravest soldiers on our front. We cleared through to floor 47. Spartans. We were all -blam!-ed and we knew it. But, our goal could, infact be accomplished. We were not going down without a good fight. The Spartans. We knew everything about him. Though, it was tough. We cleared through, barely. Over half of our army was dead. We could win. We had made it to the top floor. As we made it, General Troll was killed. He was killed in an ambush. General Troll was one of the bravest men I have ever known. He would always sacrifice himself to the forum mods to give us lolz. Instead of accomplishing our goal, he died, like a rat in a trap. He was not to die in vain. His final words. He said that the building was not real, but an illusion. A decoy. The Achronos clones were deployed. All was lost. We radioed some evac. Our army a mere quarter had survived. We still fight to this day, hoping to find the real Bungie studios. Now, Squirrel Dude, this is why we fight. This is our goal.

  • Also, from Cortana 5 About becoming "Queen of The Flood" "So there was a poll back in 2006 about who should be Queen of the Flood. I was in the "other" category. Jennelle4Now was actually the first queen, while I ended up as the Flood Princess. It was discovered that Jennelle4Now was actually a guy who went under the name L8teRunner (or something like that). As a result I took over as Queen of the Flood because I was already the princess. There have been other Flood Princesses, but they never stuck around much."

  • I think you should talk about how two of the "Top Forum Topic" threads were locked. I became very sad the day i came on The Flood and saw that the Most Disgusting Thing to Ever Happen at Your School thread was locked. And put stuff about the Bungie Towers Attacks.
