I actually found the M2 Outline much more interesting than the level notes, but its a well know fact roughly 50% of my brain died from playing StarCraft for a few months, so... what was I talking about? Anyway, here's the beginnings of an ASCII translation: Hand-written stuff is in italics It's rife with errors, most of them mine, but its somethign to stard with.
Lh'won razed (marshes into deserts) tedran . (geograhie)
700,000 S'pht taken as slaves
S'pht have excellent aptitude with computers and become the Pfhor's
cybernetic computer operators (bug like intelligent being, cybernetic cineill toe mcBilu B T
S'pht royalty is slaughtered
royalty can communicate and influence thousands of S'pht
genetically engineered Pfhor cyborgs take over this role (kill on Marathon invasion)
best-effort to assure no S'pht remain alive ?
long abandoned under&above ground
some mutated native life (breathing native atmosphere), equally hostile
to pfhor, humans and each other
lots of Pfhor and their slaves
mostly reactivated by the Pfhor occupation force
computers operational, network in disrepair
some oxygenated areas; pfhor oxygen/energy stations in most others
Pfhor reinforcements arrived 3 months after Durandal left
reached Tau Ceti after receiving ansible (FTL) distress signal from the
original Pfhor scoutship shortly before Durandal's takeover
the colony is destroyed and enslaved
Durandal knew this would happen; he discovered a distress signal
which had been broadcast from the scout during the takeover, and knew
the Pfhor would be coming. this is why he transported you off the ship
instead of leaving you behind as he had originally intended
lead to Lh'won by Tycho
they bring Tycho, leaving the Marathon nearly intact but with Leela
purged, and a large number of human slaves
arrived nearly 17 full years ahead of Durandal, free S'pht
Durandal knows only vaguely the location of Lh'won (ex-marsh world
in a specific cluster in the core)
the Pfhor have Lh'won autodial; they take slave revolts seriously
trying to discover the whereabouts of the lost clan before Durandal
but not doing a very good job; work has almost entirely stalled
the Pfhor have been unable to locate the rogue scoutship and believe it
lost after so much time.
the garrison becomes frat and razy
Pfhor arrive; reactivate S'pht'Kr complex and begin search
Durandal, free S'pht arrive with player
Oxygenated areas? Leela Purged? Garrisons that are "Frat" and "Razy"?
The plot thicks...
