The Story So Far...DOOM

You're a marine, one of Earth's toughest, hardened in combat and
trained for action. Three years ago you assaulted a superior officer
for ordering his soldiers to fire upon civilians. He and his body
cast were shipped to Pearl Harbour, while you were transferred to
Mars, home of the Union Aerospace Corporation.

The UAC is a multi-planetary conglomerate with radioactive waste
facilities on Mars and it's two moons, Phobos and Deimos. With
no action for fifty million miles, your day consisted of suckin'
dust and watchin' restricted flicks in the rec room.

For the last four years the military, UAC's biggest supplier, has
used the remote facilities on Phobos and Deimos to conduct various
secret projects, including research on inter-dimensional space travel.
So far they have been able to open Gateways between Phobos and Deimos,
throwing a few gadgets into one and watching them come out the other.

Recently, however, the Gateways have grown dangerously unstable.
Military "volunteers" entering them have disappeared or been stricken
with a stange form of insanity-babbling vulgarities, bludgeoning anything
that breathes, and finaly suffering an untimely death of full-body
explosion. Matching heads with torsos to send home to the folks became
a full-time job. Latest military reports state that the research is
suffering a small set-back, but everything is under control.

A few hours ago, Mars received a garbled message from Phobos.
"We require immediate military support. Some fraggin' evil is coming
out of the Gateways! Computer systems have gone berserk!" The rest was
incoherent. Soon afterwards, Deimos simply vanished from the sky. Since then,
attempts to establish contact with either moon have been unsuccessful.

You and your buddies, the only combat troop for fifty million miles
were sent up pronto to Phobos You were ordered to secure the perimeter
of the base while the rest of the team went inside. For several hours,
your radio picked up the sounds of combat: guns firing, men yelling orders,
screams, bones cracking, then finaly, silence. Seems your buddies are dead.

It's Up To You

Things aren't looking too good. You'll never navigate off the planet on your own.
Plus, all the heavy weapons have been taken by the assault team leaving you
with only a pistol. If only you could get your hands around a plasma rifle
or even a shotgun you could take a few down on your way out. Whatever killed
your buddies deserves a couple of pellets in the forehead. Securing your
helmet, you exit the landing pod. Hopefully you can find more subsantial
firepower somewhere within the station.

As you walk through the main entrance of the base, you hear animal-like growls
echoing throughout the distant corridors. They know you're here.
There's no turning back now.

Ummm. Well. That was, ummmm, "informative" for those, ummmm, "unfortunates" who have never played Doom in their life... but I don't think there's a single person on here who's never played Doom...

Yeah... that prologue is in the instruction book for EVERY doom game that came out. PC, PSX, Doom 64, SNES, etc. Everyone's heard it before.

Good story, but too bad iD wrote and not you....that would have been cool. What's up with just DooM and no DooM3?
