So... Here I am. Hello everyone, my name... or.. my nickname... is 810... All rigth, long story short:
I was a Halo Fan. I knew that Halo had a lot of references to Marathon, so I wanted to give it a try. And... I fell in love with it. The story, characters, weapons, enemies... everything. I finished the three original marathon games and Rubicon.

I wanted to make a scenario for Marathon, but I didn't find any tool to do so... Neither a way to use the existent ones... maybe I'm too dumb for it. I have windows and I've never touched a Mac, never in my life.
I forgot about that... I tried to fill the vaccum and I decided to make a game, I was thinking in something like sci-fi+horror. And marathon came to my mind, I wanted to make a new game, but I also wanted something that could explain a little more 'bout marathon.

So... My game is Marathon based. It has it's own story, but it attempts to be in the same universe as Marathon.

And finally, how did I get here?
I was searching for Marathon 3d models, I found some, but I never used them.
I'm used to read your pfhorum, see what's going on, try to figure out the role of every one of you...
But I think it's to better to ask this: How the things work here?

And some people will tell you what's good about it and what's wrong with it - sometimes technical, sometimes just opinion, but always informative.
There are some films too. The one below, I copied from a Tour of Duty post on the Story Forum (another good place to read). It plays on Marathon: Durandal.

Here and here are a couple o recent creations with criticism. Here's a commentary on Rubicon.

I don't know anything about mapping, etc., but I read these then play the scenario to find if I can see the point of the criticism. There are often differences between the opinions of a creator and a player. All my opinions are strictly from the point of view of a player (me).

Be patient. Take your time. It's about art. It's about style.
Smooth talkin slow walkin Marathon style.
I just play 'em; I don't know how they work.

We all know the CLIQUE is a very real thing... at least until Ryoko single-handedly destroys this place.
