"And what sort of idea?"
Chris shakes his head. "Not really, no. The outfit and distinct lack of apparent hardware is kind of misleading." He chuckles a bit, holding his hands up to show his teasing was in good intent.

Chris then pauses a bit, scratching the back of his head. "Well...I've kinda been wanting to build a house somewhere. HALO's nice and all, but I still feel like I should be providing somehow, plus it makes sense for personal reasons...I'm saying 'for personal reasons' a lot lately, aren't I?" He shrugs a bit. "Anyways, I figured that I'd find somewhere in between HALO and GLoG, and set up a place there. I'd then get a couple of portals that connect to both places so that we can just pop in whenever we like without a lot of hassle. We can then stay connected to HALO, while giving the kids the benefits of being here, among other things."
