In Response To: Re: Rampancy Shake It! (Narcogen)

: Well, to be honest, I'm not sure there's much relevance to what Tycho's
: original role was, except perhaps insofar as helping identifying certain
: terminal messages that aren't explicitly labeled as to their origin.

: Durandal's menial role (doors, etc) is relevant in that it informs his
: attitude towards his job and how he responds to that through his rampancy.
: I don't remember whether or not Tycho's role as the science and
: engineering AI has much to do with what happens later, but as Tycho's role
: in the story gets more significant I'll try and watch for that.

: I'm using the spoiler guide to try and avoid too much pointless wandering
: during the playthrough, but I'm actively avoiding using the Story page too
: much because I'm trying to recreate at least some of the feel of a
: "blind" playthrough, without all the disadvantages that implies.

No problem.

Tycho's role in Marathon 1 is pretty minimal, if non-existent. It was radically cut from the original story and what bits were left were mainly consigned to secret terminals which the average player would never find or be able to get to.

But you can't keep a good AI down and there are little snippets of his existence in a number of other terminals which were never fully rooted out.

One day we might be able to piece his story together and learn the... tru7h.

Cheers
