    From Community Customs:

    It’s begun. They dropped in just under an hour ago. Swarms of them. Hundreds more than our outpost around Jupiter lead us to believe. At first, we thought it was an all-out invasion. That we were doomed. But now… Now it’s as if they’re searching for something. Something that could only be provided on a slow, tedious, Monday morning. The Questions are streaking overhead again right now. The loudspeakers blasting the population below demanding the truth. The truth? Are those Questions sure they can handle the truth? It’s time to find out. Suit up, Spartan. Winter Contingency has been declared. All Answers are mobilized and ready. It’s time to launch the Spotlight.

    Pete isn’t an active member of Community Customs. In fact, if you ask him, he’ll say he’s not a member at all, and that’s alright, because we don’t consider ourselves some sort of exclusive club or clan. To us, “member” merely means, “registered on the site,” or perhaps, “regular player.” What Pete is, however, is a well-respected and outstanding member of the greater Halo Community at large, and that makes him more than worthy of some time in our modest little Spotlight. If you’ve played in any of our Customs Nights, you’re guaranteed to have been subjected to a minimum of five rounds on Knockin’ Zombs, which is, by far, our favorite creation of his. But that’s not all he’s known for… Pete is the author of the Flaming Ninja Challenges, Last Forger Standing, daily (for a time) single panel Halo-related webcomics, and so much more. His most recent claim to greatness, however, is his “Forge with Pete” series on Halo Waypoint. It’s a series where Pete showcases a simple minigame before explaining how it works and how to build it. The results are often, as expected, ingenious in their re-purposing and twisting of Halo’s mechanics. But enough of my glowing comments, let’s see what he has to say for himself.
