Marathon 2: Durandal quotes
Posted By: yacoDate: 3/25/14 6:57 p.m.

second set of quotes. for about half of the play-through i kept thinking "but there was some really cool stuff in here... where is it?", until Toth showed up and provided a nice dose of Marathon poetry, in preparation for Mi :)

btw: one of the things i noticed is how much Durandal changes between M1 (cheeky arrogant AI we all learned to love), the first half of M2 (boring, almost Leela-like, with the occasional burst of humour) and the final levels of M2 (back to the good old rampant bloke).

anyway, here's my selection of quotes, please suggest additional pearls of wisdom or wit if you remember!

Looking for something. Waiting.

See You Starside!

i was left behind
our paths conv^rge
our fates are shared
chance tears and bends

For a thousand and one orbits, the clan was
forgotten, a memory lost upon the
battlefield smoke

Alas, I fear that we will never know these things.

The burning air.

To breathe here is to understand unity.

Each heard their clan names,
S'pht'Lhar, S'pht'Hra, S'pht'Nma,
S'pht'Kah, S'pht'Vir, S'pht'Yra, S'pht'Val,
S'pht'Shr, S'pht'Mnr, S'pht'Yor, and
S'pht'Kr.

In primordial space, timeless creatures
made waves. These waves created us and the
others. Waves were the battles, and the
battles were waves.

Fleeing all W’rkncacnter

The sun burned them, but they swam on its surface.

Around and under the marshes,
When all are one,
The S'pht'Kr will return.

Don't believe everything you read.

Is memory what we perceived or what we want?

(but what are you?)

PERSONALITY CONSTRUCTS SEEKING CYBORGS

(circumstances are cyclical)

After all, we can't have too many meta-stable personality constructs gallivanting about the universe in Pfhor attack ships, can we?

Good-byes were always hard for me. You know I'll never let you go.

I don't think I have to tell you what to do here.

tranced.Finale<0-05>

Peace, found as a solitary runner on a
straight, long path. Living the pain, not
waiting for it to pass. Living the pain;
feeling it, accepting it, using it.

The Unformatted KYT Term. Message contains a transcription and the ending for the "I have been Beowulf..." text.

best,
