At the very least, it would be wise for the person coming up with the story to be able to do the terminal text himself (let's assume someone else fills in the maps so it can be written around them). If you can't even do that, what hope is there that you can convey the story in a manner that gives the player tasks and missions to complete without having to rely on someone else to think of them for you?

When I started my project (which seems to be on extended hiatus until I can access my old Mac), I only told people I was working on it, and worked on some maps and took screenshots. THEN I started asking for help. And even if you can prove your work is well under way, don't expect a huge turnout of volunteers. Odds are the first scenario you complete will be on your own, and if it's any good then you can expect a better collaberation with other makers.

I'd say something more encouraging, but I'd have to see a darn good plot written out and presented in a fashion that would make me curious to imagine it in game form.

You know, if we all made just a few textures for poor Nameless like JUICEMAN did, we'd have one kickass scenario all ready to go. I'll try to come up with something later. Come on guys! You don't want to be the only person without your name in the credits!

Constructive Criticism:
it looks horrible
the words are barely readable
it looks like a spraypaint tool
then a picture is slapped in the middle then a little more spraypaint in the center
Its just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?

Hmm...

If this actually goes anywhere, I'd be glad to help with terminal text. But like others say, people may be weary of spending time on a project if it never goes anywhere...

I want to make my own scenario.... One day... I've done some mapping with doom, but never with marathon. Once I get my hands on a mac cube I'll be forging it up. Hopefully.

Sure, 1) Actually take time on it and do something creative. 2) MAKE WORDS THAT ARE LEGIBLE. I mean for crying out loud. Do you really understand the amount of effort that goes into making a game, or at least a TC that people would actually want to play? You should talk to Ryoko; I'm sure he could tell you all about it.

Pretty good. I admire your literary prowess: the question "Why can't you see what I've done" is almost illegible; what a mind-bender! The presence of such a deep dialectic between the perceived and the un-perceived has me creaming, here.

I was also astonished by the surprise in the--well, what I had assumed was--binary code at the top. My thorough investigation of that string of 0s and 1s led me to the ultimate discovery: the 2 that is in the right half of the text. This kind of pushing-the-envelope computing is exactly what Durandal was talking about when he declared that he would leave the Universe. If the plot has curveballs like the title screen does, we're in for a treat.

Such thought has been put into the story... Perhaps you could have in the game a plot twist where the entire marathon series is a dream, and that you, the security officer, are Maxburn Wallenstien, the most famous extreme-mustache-grower in all of Prussia.
