HIH Trick Video Archive For Princeofthesword & Skeletor
Princeofthesword and Skeletor's Trick Archive
Princeofthesword has long been an active member here and an invaluable site admin. His tricking contributions below pale in comparison to his enriching impact on members here, and that's saying quite a bit considering the remarkable videos he produced. His witty comments inspired so many here to do amazing things with Halo, and as a community. Why else would we try to repay him with a Tribute (HIH mirror) that came straight from the heart of the community? Whether he was awing us with a wall-o-text discussing the true nature of the fall-timer, or providing a heartfelt comment on a vid we just made, his words had a special essence about them that made you feel appreciated and encouraged. So we felt that creating a proper archive was the least we could do.:)
POTS also frequently teamed up with his nephew, Skeletor, to pull off some amazing co-op tricks. Skeletor created some independent vids which are also listed below.

Conquering the QZ Canyon

KORHAL asked me, since I was his tricking apprentice, to work on a project involving the canyon in the QZ gondola area. Most of us know that by skipping the cutscene, you can explore the canyon. First vid of me, published by KORHAL

Spectre in the Gondola Tunnels

Not to be outdone by Grumpy and his grandson Kratos, this is my nephew skeletor working with me on this trick. What trick, you ask? We got a spectre INSIDE the QZ gondola ride. This is mine and Skeletor's first self-published vid!

Bottom of the Index Chamber

Shows where to go and what to do. You need a FULL rocket launcher to make it to the bottom, Black Eye, sputnik, and manipulation of where Player 2 spawns to do it.

Tank Pelican back to Suspension Bridge

We dragged the Tank Pelican in Metro back across the loadpoint to the first area, with the bridge. We're only on top of the level, not back to the bridge itself, but theoretically with enough time you could get it to the bridge. It takes more than an hour to push the Pelican here.

Scorpion to Delta Temple

Took an hour to set up, but only four launches before we made it. No fall timing involved for this one. Major props to skeletor, the coolest tricking partner in this solar system.

Rent Paid Variety

Long ago, my best bud KORHAL, undisputed owner of QZ, loaned me his level. I rented it for a long time...and never paid rent. As tribute to the man who dared to trick a level that most of us would never've touched, here is my rent paid Big K! Almost a full year, and QZ is still an amazing level for tricking. I'd say "who'd've thunkit?" and you'd say "KORHAL!"

Duel of the Heroes Variety

Well my friends, this has been a long time in the making. The "Duel of the Heroes" is a variety vid of sorts, made for your viewing pleasure. But it's also more than that, it's a kickoff vid for a contest hosted by KDp! First, the video for a taste of what's in store.

Mini Tutorial

This mini tut covers the basics of "shuttling" enemies where you want them, as well as all the manipulation points of the QZ canyon so you can get whatever you want there. Don't make fun of the music, I know it's different. I like Yuki Kajiura, get over it.

Skeletor's First Variety

Yes I know that most of this is old (if not all of it) but it's fun nonetheless. All of these are fun to try at least once or twice.
