Unread post AdjutantReflex has posted once again!
I hate having to do this, especially since the forum is locked down to avoid spoilers. The topic itself was locked and unlocked multiple times, and it's now deleted. Was AR hacked into? No one knows. But here it is everyone.

At approximately 9:53 PM PST, AdjutantReflex's Superior returned. It created a topic entitled An Empty Casket, and then edited its post a tad bit later with one final line at the end. Here is the post in its entirety:

Quote:
AdjutantReflex: 09.13.2007 10:22 PM PDT

This vessel I have stolen is leaking
A jar too small to hold an ocean
I cracked it open to bear me up
Another soul snuffed to speed my passage
Another life desiccated and scattered to the Grand Cycle
I wish to say, just once and truly
This was not a whim
I shared Adjutant Reflex’s pain as it passed
It knew who I was
And why I came
It knew that there was purpose to this
And that a sacrifice had been forced upon it
As it was on trillions past
Another sacrifice comes
But for whom?
The answer lies very far from here
Eleven days
One hour
Thirty eight minutes
And untold light years
Look for me in the dark
Where he cannot find us
And pray as you have never prayed before


This is the way the world ends.


I now link you all to Unfiction where all of this is being discussed. Ragamuffin observed:

Other info:
* AR (almost certainly NAR) apparently edited another user's post, quoting it and adding "Gravemind much?" Since the thread was deleted, evidence supporting this can't be found, but most people on Bnet right now seem to agree that it happened. A poster's summary of the quote editing:
Quote:
Yeah, he edited a post quoting his first post. He added Gravemind much? to it. Then after it was unlocked again, that post was completely changed to say something about being hacked and a system error. I tried to quote it but then the thread got deleted.

Apparently, the thread was locked and unlocked multiple times before it disappeared.
* From the time of the post, the "eleven days, one hour, thirty eight minutes" part matches almost exactly with 12:00 AM, September 25, the release date and time of Halo 3 in North America.
* Also, many people are speculating about the rampancy of NAR. While it's a stretch, this could relate to the fact that another, almost certainly OOG poster has been trolling the Bnet forums and posting tons of fake spoilers and such, before, during, and after the incident.

Many were also quick to point out that the "Empty Casket" appeared to reference the moment in the "Pillar of Autumn" part of HALO: CE where the screen cuts to a view of words stating: "Unseal the hushed casket."

Also from Unfiction, Locohoco stated:

Apparently he also edited two other user posts in a thread entitled "AdjutantReflex".

The ARG posts were deleted due to the Great Bungie hacking (wasn't really great).

I have no idea what they said originally.

Many are wondering why AdjutantReflex would "break character" in any way, shape, or form by literally referring to the "ARG" and "Bungie."

Some members of Bungie.net believe that in light of this new post, AdjutantReflex's Superior is Cortana. Others believe that someone (from Bungie) logged onto AR and posted these things to try and exclaim that "All questions will be answered in HALO 3." This is all speculation.
After speaking with Narcogen for quite some time, I personally believe that this is neither Cortana, nor a fake. With permission from Narcogen...

If you want to predict what'll happen in H3, look at H1 and H2-- not the ARGs and not the novels. Those will just confuse you with extraneous information. The novels, the ARG... they're backstory. They don't impact the main plot. Not one bit. I mean, there were people who thought Durga was going to be in the game. And the artifact. And Halsey. And Kelly. And the other Spartans. And any number of other cockamamie things. And yet the one real significant character development in Halo 2-- the arbiter-- not mentioned at all.

Bungie won't go to all the trouble of keeping H3's plot super-secret and then give real clues to it in an advertisement. Why be so aggressive about leaks and spoilers if a clever person could deriive what they've kept secrets by decoding the clues in an ad?

Narcogen brings up EXCELLENT points to consider.

And, again, apologies that the forums had to be shut down. I'll keep this topic as updated as possible.

I want to make a point here, NAR also mentions in his countdown light years, i.e distance. Maybe we don't find him in the ark.....

What's weird to me is the time reference is just about 12 hours or so (and many light years, of course) off from when Halo 3 releases.

I want to know why the topic creator at B.net was blacklisted...I honestly don't know what to make of this. It doesn't seem to be in character.

He was blacklisted for participating in some spam thread somewhere else on B.net entitled "lololol" or something.

I've been sufficiently frightened away from bnet for the next two weeks by Achronos' warning post.
No way do I want to be banned for something dumb (and I've been known to make a dumb post here and there :| ).
