I am generally following common practice, but
Special notes: My comments are purple, I use tables* for formating, tables* with thick borders for the boxed text, and I mark alternates as follows: ["__"? "__"? "__"?].

Level #: 14 Durandal #2 It seems like another numeral is hiding under the four
Level Name: Habe Quiddam
Author: Jason
Collection: #3 (lava)
Environment: normal
What monsters: wasps, lookers, fighters, bobs, assimilated bobs
Items: rocket launcher (the ["lost"? "last"?] weapon?)

Retrieve part (?)
Get Alien Interfacer from Tycho.

Computer Terminals:


Tells you saving
Marathon is like
being a slave["..."?]
You have no choice.

Get object from Tycho
Compilers willing to revolt.
Durandal wants you to save Marathon but himself
wants to jump ship.

Perhaps I should've just transcribed this linearally? I.e., should I have kept the text positioning in my transcription or allowed the original scan graphic to satisfy that context?

Humanity is corrupt and no better than the
pfhor [sic], really. Slavers, all.

Discuss. Feel free to denigrate my transcription. It was fun, but is it useful or done well?

(BTW, choosing font color "bright green" is red, and "brightgreen" is purple.)
*One can also mess up the tables used to display your message, causing strange results, if that one is careless with the Table markup. Use Preview when including tables in your posts.
