"Some believe the Forerunner preferred desolate places. Others suggest that few other sites survived the Flood."
Epitaph know primarly during the Moderation War as Epitaph Tower, is a multiplayer map featured in Halo 3. Situated in an enclosed Forerunner "Cathedral", this asymmetric map is best for free-for-all gametypes, such as Slayer, King of the Hill, and Oddball, and small team games, such as Team Slayer and One-Flag.
The Map, that was once used as a fun Forge map for Matchmaking became a massive field Head Quarters for the Seven Sages during the Moderation War against Condemned after the Fall of Sandbox, but the Server was eventually found and Overrun by Chaos, who had somehow managed to break the Kill Barriers of the Map and spawn an army down in the Desert including a Single Scorpion Tank.
The Fall of Epitaph would eventually force the Seven Sages to abandon Halo 3, completely and take Refugee in Halo 2 Anniversary of the Master Chief Collection on the Server Map AWASH, where a new Island Field HQ was created, in order to temporarily replace both Sandbox and Epitath.
