"Harley!" Gerald shouted, "Don't let this guy up!" Harley quickly turned towards the collapsed man on the bed and attempted to restrain him, looking back to Gerald who was now leaning against the wall with a syringe in his hand. "Summer? I need some help." Gerald had said, in what sounded almost lik...

"Hold this," Summer instructed Harley as she handed the alien staff off to him. He reluctantly took it, and held it in one hand as he braced himself against a wall. Realizing how exhausted he really was, he nearly lost his balance and knelt down, leaving his rifle leaning his rifle leaning against a...

"Thanks," Harley said as Simon helped him onto the elevator that they had finally gotten moving. As he waited for Gerald to start the elevator's ascent, Harley asked the group, "Well since we've finally solved our dilemma with th elevator, what's our next plan going to be?"

I'll try and slip in some more of Harley's back-story to develop upon his sub-plots next time I get the chance (perhaps the next time Summer or another character starts a heated argument).

Harley looked at the twitching alien corpse with his Assault Rifle raised, forgetting about how taken aback he was by Summer's previous rant. "That thing shoots little balls of lightning?!" Summer had asked Simon. Without saying anything, Harley walked closer to Summer and gazed at the burnt alien, ...

OOC: Just so everyone knows I have left on a two-week vacation and will have very limited internet access until I return, as I am using a computer in a landromat right now. I'll try my best to post in the EFM topic whenever I get the opportunity.

Simon ostentatiously displayed his new weapon as Harley searched through the security station until he discovered the burnt and mangled corpse of a Marathon Security Officer. Harley staggered back, but noticed that across from the body lay some sort of assault rifle. Carefully stepping over the rema...

Replies: 69

I've downloaded a few scenarios and played the first couple of levels of each and I would say Rubicon is the one that fascinates me the most. I love the idea of the non-linear plot, and would I be right in thinking that once you finish the game you could play it again and wind up doing completely d...

Well the major scenarios I've beaten are Rubicon X, Squadron, Eternal X and Red. I'm sure you've heard a lot about Rubicon X; its storytelling, atmosphere and level design are truly remarkable. The scenario is nonlinear, however, as its 80+ levels are divided into three planks?the Salinger plank, th...

Harley's ears were ringing horribly from the explosion that had happened in front of him?his wound had started bleeding quickly again, and the trooper killed by Gerald's grenade launcher was completely eviscerated on the floor in front of him. Feeling sick, Harley staggered back and braced himself a...

Harley, still disoriented from from what was happening, fell over and crawled over behind a large crate. Peeking out with his pistol still in hand, he spotted several more of the alien soldiers?five staff-wielding ones and one armed with a rifle. Looking back, he saw Summer and Simon attempting to e...

Should we do anything about the posters whose characters haven't taken any action for a long time (i.e. Goron, Vikingboybilly, some of the members of the other group, etc.)?

Harley quickly took in what was happening around him?the man named "Gerald" had his rifle trained on the end of the hallway. Something was coming. Trying to overcome his past trauma, Harley shouted, "Hey, pass me a rifle!" He stood up?his legs felt tired and weak, but he felt confident enough to ste...

I would prefer it if we try to keep the original Marathon cast (i.e. Durandal, Tycho, Robert Blake, etc.) uninvolved in this story for the most part, and try and stick to our own original characters; using original Marathon characters too much could contradict with the Marathon canon and would likel...

As the group gathered around the elevator, Harley began to regain consciousness. Seated against the wall behind him, blood still dripping from his wounded ear, he looked ahead to see the woman that was coming towards him shortly before he blacked out, and the the two men that he had also encountered...

The one you're thinking of is most likely the Director's Cut of Aliens; there's an added scene about two-thirds of the way through the film where the aliens attempt to find a way to get to the main characters, but the machine-guns stop them.

"What the hell happened to you anyway?" the woman had asked Harley. He looked up at her curiously. What happened to me? Oh right... my ear. "One of the rifle-wielding ones fired a grenade at me... It exploded against the wall behind me, and?" He stopped mid-sentence and grimaced with a pained expres...

"I don't want to die..." Harley whimpered. The man in front of him still hadn't answered him; he was still calling to the other two men running their way. Harley looked down the hallway to his left when he heard what faintly sounded like a scream?the scream of another bug. What he saw, however, was ...
