: Well, I know of no one who has put together a timeline thing, but a while
: back Ben Potter made some database thing which included many different
: scenarios. I believe you can find it at the Archives (searching for
: "Ben Potter" should work.)

: Anyone else know more about this?

Heh, as the aforementioned party, I can say that indeed my effort is at the archives at:

http://archives2.bungie.org/info/marathon.scenario.guide.hqx

The project was nothing less than a database of every solo map (including some net maps for solo practice like Rockets of Fury) produced for the various Marathon incarnations. I've been updating it, but I haven't released anything recently. I just burned some CDs for all of the maps not on the 1997 Trilogy box set (it took 1 CD for Infinity, 1 CD for M1, M2, and 3rd party, and 1 CD for extras (shapes, tools, etc.) -though the last was only ~ 200 MB).

For my own part, I tried to keep Marathon: Fell within the confines of the broader logic of the series, essentially having a character from an earlier time period, developing the Enforcer backhistory a little, and introducing a new alien species. Hope this helps. If I had it all to do over, I might have spent more time with the terminals regarding backstory, though I do think I had quite a bit

Cheers,

Ben
