Steel Halo is the rumoured sport played by the Huristar, the legendary Holy Guard of the Emperor. Named in honour of Emperor Zaquen, known to citizens of the Empire as
the Steel Halo, the brutal contact sport has gradually filtered through to the outer rim colonies, spread by disgraced Huristar trying to relive their former glory.
Competitors form teams and use a variety of Gravity Rifles to vie for possession of the crown, which must be shot through a goal to score. There are no rules, no
penalties, no umpires - the highest score wins.
