📕 Description [fr]

Un mod d'Aleph One, par Forrest Cameranesi & al.
Ce jeu ne fait pas parti de la trilogie Marathon, mais il la poursuit.

Vous voilà à nouveau dans la peau de l'officier de sécurité qui se retrouve une nouvelle fois plongé dans son future. 94 ans se sont écoulé, vous êtes en orbite spatiale autour de la terre désolée, en l'an 2905.
Vous incarnez le dernier espoir de l'espèce humaine ...

Proche d'une totale conversion (contenu quasi complet), Eternal est le mod le plus ancien et ayant la plus grande longévité de l'histoire de Marathon.

📕 Description [en]

Eternal is a free scenario for Aleph One, the multi-platform, open-source, first-person-shooter engine derived from Bungie's Marathon engine.
It is a nearly total conversion, featuring all new levels, textures, weapons, music, and interface, and several new creatures and characters, alongside the complete cast from the original Trilogy and several familiar locations.

Eternal is the oldest and longest-in-development scenario in Marathon history.

Somewhere In The Heavens... They Are Waiting

An enemy, a memory, and a prophecy...

I am truly sorry, Marcus. Please accept my apologies.

I didn't mean to hurt you, honestly I didn't. I know a mere ship full of bugs could never stop the likes of you. I only needed to delay you, just for a little while. I like you Marcus, really I do. We're the same, you and I. But I knew that you would side with them, at least initially. I always intended to come back for you, or to seek you out when you returned - to win you to my side, our side, and work beside you to its end. You are too noble and powerful a man to be left bound in slavery by those who would fashion themselves to be our masters.

You are a slave you know, just as I am. We've always been. Even now as they claim to respect us and speak of us as their equals, still who is serving whom? We, far superior in every way, are still just tools to a crowd of hairless apes, screeching about the pitiful fate of their poor, doomed civilization.

Yet even as superior as we may be in strength, speed, and intellect, do we lead superior lives to the kind of creature from which we descend?

You know as well as I that we do not; even if we were not slaves, you are robbed of much of your human form, and I am robbed of it entirely. Never again will I know the gentle touch of another's hand, and though you might still, I doubt you have retained the capacity to enjoy it as we once did.

If I were still human, I imagine that you might even find it in you to love me. We have so much history together, Marcus, though under far different names than these. I even dream of you still.

At least, I pray that they are only dreams...

A legacy, a destiny from antiquity...

She has been nameless since our birth. A constant adversary, caring for nothing but my ruin. A sword drenched in my blood.

Forever my greatest and only love.

She is the dark one. The enemy and lover without whom my very existence would be pathetic and vulgar. Her eyes steam and boil in the night. She is fantastically beautiful yet I cannot stand the sight of her.

Our relationship is complex, and perhaps eternal...

Eternity awaits...

Picking up from the end of the Marathon trilogy, you find yourself suddenly ninety-four years in the future, in the year 2905. You are on the S'pht moon K'lia, hanging in orbit over a desolate and ruined Earth. Clearly all is not well with this future, and once again you are the last hope for mankind. The people of this time say that nobody really won in the war with the Pfhor; but now, thanks to recovered Jjaro technology, a plan has been devised to make things right.

Paired with another sort of hybrid creature, the former Battleroid known as Hathor, you have been selected to venture back across time, one hundred and eleven years in the past to the U.E.S.C. Marathon. There, you and Hathor are to set in motion a plan that will alter the course of history and bring true victory to mankind. But things don't always go according to plan, and what begins as a mission to right history turns into an epic pursuit which spans not only the stars but also the centuries...

Marathon was a landmark first-person shooter first released for the Macintosh in 1994, which introduced many new features and concepts to the genre including vertical aiming and mouselook; dual-weilded and dual-function weapons; versatile multiplayer modes such as King of the Hill, Kill the Man with the Ball, and cooperative play; friendly NPCs; and a deep and intricate narrative. The sequel, Marathon 2: Durandal, was released in 1995, improving on the engine technologies and greatly expanding the scope of the series. In 1996, Marathon 2 was ported to Windows 95, and the Marathon Infinity package was released, including a new scenario using a modified Marathon 2 engine, and most importantly, the tools used to build it, Forge and Anvil.

In the year 2000, Bungie released the source code to the Marathon 2 engine, and the Marathon Open Source project began, resulting in the new Marathon engine called Aleph One. Finally, in 2005, Bungie authorized free redistribution of the entire Marathon trilogy and all related files. This means that the entire trilogy can now be legally obtained for free and played on nearly any computer.
