Unread post Forerunner question that will have a point once answered...
Here is a question that has been bugging me for quite a while, and I have looked everywhere, but can't find an answer. Maybe someone a little more informed could help a guy out:

Have we/anyone located any Forerunner home worlds? Where are they? What was there?

This, I promise, will have a point and tie in to the Iris story no matter how this question is answered, but I would like to start the discussion here. I want to keep this out of the realm of speculation, so please just stick to things we know. Maybe you already know where I am going with this...

Edit: rewording for clarification

I don't have it handy, but I believe there's a reference in Conversations from the Universe to the Prophets being from (or claiming to be from) a Forerunner colony world. Beyond that I don't think we have anything. No apparent homeworld discovered, no cities, only the one ship powering High Charity, etc.

It may not be in there, but I'm certain I've read it before. I haven't read the novels, so I'm not sure where else I could have picked it up. Maybe not in the Conversations but the character-class descriptions in the instruction manual proper?

From what I remember being said in the books, the Prophets believe that they truly are religious leaders because they evolved on a Forerunner world that had a great deal of Forerunner technology just sitting around......like a disaster (halo firing) had occurred and only the people not the constructs were gone. This let them to believe that their gods (the Forerunners) had blessed them and gave them charge to be the leaders of the Covenant. I think that the Prophets then used what they found in the remains of the Forerunner technology to search for them, found out about the halo constructs, and found the other races who they then converted to their religion in order to use them for their own purposes. Religion can delude people. What would we do if faced with a physical power we could see and experience but didn't understand, and it was being called an act of God's messengers? This could explain how the Covenant came into being, because no where else have I seen evidence that the Grunts, Elites, Hunters, or any other species besides the Prophets could have developed a space faring technology. The Hunters appear to have VERY limited brain power, the grunts obviously aren't that intelligent, and would a warrior race like the Elites or Brutes have a weak being like the Prophets as their leaders if they didn't show some kind of godlike power?

i think i remember some references (or at least some inferences) to the prophet/forerunner connection during the deleted "mural scene" on the bonus disc that came with the Halo2 limited edition. i would double check but i lent my friend my copy of Halo2 >_<;

Also, that crystal was found under Reach. There had to have been some Forerunner there.

And Sigma Octanus, where they found the rock that led them to the first Halo.

Onyx. Has the only known Forerunner City. Also is a Dyson Sphere and they have that slipspace rift in it so that the Forerunner can save themselves from the pulse of the Halos.
