I'm Chan "Ventro" K. and I'd like to welcome you
to my project, the Half-Life Saga Story Guide.
the purpose of this site? The
Half-Life Saga Story Guide was created
in order to provide a concise, accurate,
user-friendly overview of the events
dealing directly with the events of the
Half-Life Saga, and allowing users to
easily get a better understanding of
the story behind the games.
did you make this site? This site
was created simply because I found that
there were far too many people confused
with the saga. It's being told in a method
far different from the way normal stories
and games are told, in a very passive
nature. It's up to you, the player, to
piece together the information and make
conclusions on it. Inherent in these
games is the fact that Gordon Freeman
simply isn't supposed to know what's
going on all the time; he's being kept
in the dark for a reason. If you're diligent
enough however, it's easy to put together
a pretty accurate account of what exactly
is going on around the game, and what
events preceded them. I've tried to do
this and document it here.
do I get started? The
main navigation is on that
column over there on the
left. Going by section, most
of the information about
the saga is laid out in
the Saga Timeline in
chronological order, so you're
best to start out with that.
Extended information about
the Combine and other specific
elements of the games can
be found in the Expanded
Info section. More specific
answers to frequently asked
questions can be found in
the FAQ section. To
read up on the latest updates
and goings on of this site,
check out the Latest News section.
If you still have a question,
feel free to contact me at the
else I should know? Remember,
this site contains massive
the events of the
two HL games. The
content of this
guide assumes you've
beaten both Half-Life
and Half-Life 2,
so if you haven't,
steer clear. Lastly,
enjoy! I hope you
can get something
out of the work
of this guide have been kind enough to translate this site
into other languages. However, I can't comment on the accuracy
of the translations. Please note that these translations
aren't always current.
Life: Aftermath Announced If you don't know already,
a expansion pack for Half-Life 2 has been announced!
This means a lot of things in the guide will be confirmed or
denied when this expansion pack is released. We'll also get
a lot of new information allowing us to refine the guide even
further! Expect a major overhaul of this guide in the days
following the release of Aftermath.
I'm looking forward to it!
Hits! Yup, we just reached our millionth visitor.
We've gotten visitors from over 153 countries spread
out over 7 continents. Thanks for recognizing this site
as the premiere location for information on the story
of the Half Life games! I'll continue to update this
site when new content comes out, of course. Thanks for
job! Marc Laidlaw pointed this out to me as
being pretty darn accurate for the most part."
