"Today, I will be presenting D4RKF1R3's remarkable creation, Sanctum. Read on and find out a little bit more about the map.
Q. Who are you and why do you forge?
A. My GT is o0 darkfire 0o but to everyone else my name is Chris. I started forging back when Halo 3 came out though I wasn't very good at it, my best map involved a rather bland box. Reach's forge really opened up the possibilities for me, the simple phasing tool cut down forging time for me from days to minutes.
Q. What was your inspiration for Sanctum?
A. I looked at Reach's maps and noticed there was a real lack of symmetrical. I wanted to see some competitive maps akin to Sanctuary from Halo 2 and Assembly from Halo 3. I guess Sanctum was born out of that initial idea.
Q. Where is Sanctum located and why did you choose that location?
A. I picked the Coliseum mainly for the flat floor. I experimented with making it up on the Quarry which didn't offer the flat flooring I was after and building my own floor cost too many walls. The Coliseum just fit perfectly for my needs.
Q. Did you employ any unusual forge techniques in making Sanctum?
A. Unusual? I wouldn't say so, but one thing I did with Sanctum that I recommend to any other forgers would be to start in the center. The sword and invisibility rooms were the first things I made. I just built around that main structure, everything seemed to fall in place.
Q. What separates your map from other maps?
A. Honestly? I have no idea. I love the two bases I made for red and blue, though I wouldn't say its entirely unique in design.
Q. Anything else people should know before they download?
A. Please leave me some feedback if you try it out. And I just want to thank all the people that helped make my map better. Not only The T00l Box for noticing Sanctum but also The Forging Assembly
for looking at the map and helping suggest ways to make Sanctum better. I honestly would not be answering these questions without all those great people.
