"...9.6, a score not easily achieved..."

Marathon|Rampancy
Prepare yourself for some old school Bungie-style gaming! Introducing the beta version of Marathon|Rampancy, a mod for Unreal Tournament based on the multiplayer part of Bungie's classic FPS game, Marathon Infinity. Marathon|Rampancy includes all new weapons, new physics, and 10 gametypes to choose from. Also included are about a dozen converted maps by the Frogblast team and BDB's MapVote utility.

New since the alpha release (almost a year ago) are a set of redesigned weapons, a marine model, the previously missing weapons, and several new gametypes such as King of the Hill, Roving Hill, Kill The Man With The Ball, and Tag. Hereěs a quick rundown:

Kill the Man With the Ball: Pretty much sums it up. The ball physics add a large twist to the game since it can be punched, shot, and blasted around.

Tag: Donět let the guy who's it kill ya, and don't kill him or suicide.

King of the Hill: Old school Marathon at it's best. Well suited for 3-8 players.

Roving King of the Hill: Inspired by Perfect Dark's gametype and based on domination maps. Will probably play much better once Rampancy specific maps are made for it. (Any volunteers?)

CTF: Includes a variable flag drop time. Plays best with smaller maps, long flag-stay times, and a large number of players. The enemy flag can be capped at any time regardless of the friendly flag's status to improve the flow of the game.

Also included are Domination, Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Last Man Standing, and Assault.

This updated was missed at the actual time it was done. But OA has been updated... Go forth and read!

Open Source
Cranberry 2.0 preview 7 has been released. s.b.o has all the details on this release. Along with those details, s.b.o also has the new Texture Enhancement Pack for A1.

I can't forget an update on the progress of getting network play to work again. Actually... It's quite a large update on the network progress. Worth a read, if you understand that technical stuff.

Story Page
Mark Levin provides us with Volunteers: Ne Cede Malis. Really is worth the read. Just a little bit of Halo backstory is up for reading as well... Just a little bit, though.

Marathon Story

A look at the forum will win you a collection of excellent reading in the form of the Volunteers. These people (Mark Levin mostly) are really keeping of the vigil. If you enjoy taking a look back at these three wonderful games, be sure to post a few levels your self. Also check out the forum for a chance to see Duality's website through the ages. You know, this is more fun than a barrel of exploding ticks.
