I have just started playing Halo... yes its been out for a while, but I just decided to get an xbox. So Ive been looking through the forums and such theorizing about the back story. But nowhere did I see any reference by anyone to Larry Niven's Ringworld. It looks like much of Halo comes from his stories which was written in the 60s I believe. Just wondering if you knew about this.

The Ringworld books are quite an interesting lot, but you might find that the ideas garnered therein lie slightly off-Halo. Something a little closer to at least part of the actual storyline might be the oft-touted Starhammer. ;-)
