Mapper: Sp234

**Greetings fellow Beat Saber players !**

Today I am finally honored to present you my *20th* map !
2 years of mapping in this amazing community, thanks to the modders, mappers, testers and players alike I managed to drastically improve my skills and get to release my most ambitous projects yet for the franchise I have grown to love !
Months of careful audio editing, mapping, lighting, reading, writing, testing and patiently waiting for the release – and now the time is nigh!

This map is a combination of 2 soundtracks from Halo 2.
The first – Pursuit of Truth, was the original soundtrack by **Martin O’donnell** and **Michael Salvatori**.
The second – Charity’s Irony, is the Anniversary edition adaptation of the same soundtrack by various artist like Paul Lipson.

Both of these soundtracks each have their strong and weak points.
However, together they form an amazing and majestic opera with the mix of hard bass and drums !

Thanks to Kaidon for the remix I was given the idea to release this version !
Also, I would like to thank all the amazing people that tested this map and helped improve it as best as I could !

The backstory of the map………………

(In a nutshell here, heavily detailed in the doc file below and forwarding to the Cloacked in Blackness map)

A mad alien prophet wishes to activate an ancient weapon for his own religous causes.
However, his ignorance on the consequences of such an act endangers the entire universe as this artifact will wipe out all living life in the galaxy !

The conflict over the control of this artifact weapon became the new power struggles between humanity and the aliens.
A human super soldier, codenamed Master Chief was sent to stop him.
What he did not expect on his journy though, was that other organic forms also wished to stop this mad prophet from fufilling his mad religous beliefs…..

Master Chief, infiltrating the aliens HQ, stormed through their command center and was in hot pursuit of this mad prophet who held the key needed to activate this artifact.

**You**, the player, **will have 3 choices** on how you wish to approach this pursuit.

**Option 1 – Standard mode – accurate lore, Master Chief POV .**
Take on Master Chief’s role and rampage through the aliens holy city – lone wolf style !

**Option 2 – One Saber mode – Hypothetical , ODST POV .**

While Master Chief has his goal to stop the activasion of the ring, an organic parasite who followed his rampage had other ideas….
Taking advantage of the infiltration, the center intelligence of this infestation outbreak, codenamed The Gravemind sent his infested soldiers to take over the aliens homeworld…..
Will you lead them into combat or assume the infected soldiers role and smack all those before you ?!
