I need to build a module that will intercept a page request, check if a user has a cookie and then redirect the user/show a different view and set a cookie. This is the standard "splash" page functionality seen on many sites. I'm looking for some pointers on how I should go about writing something like this in Orchard.  I'd like to release the module to the Orchard Gallery when it is complete.

Does Orchard have any specific hooks I should utilize , or should I just do this in a straight-forward MVC manner? Is there a specific Orchard best practice of hooking into the request pipeline early on?

You can use the Rewrite Rules module for that. It handles testing and creating cookies. Look at the link for documentation and examples.

And if you happen to have a blog, a blog post on how to make it would be great.
