This is the sequel to one of the best known Half-Life mods. It continues the original storyline. If this mod is new to you (What part of Mars were you on?) you can find the original here: Poke 646.
Mr Freeman has once again been “recruited” by the elusive and stone-faced G-man to handle a “situation’ that could prove catastrophic if not handled immediately. It seems that a rift in the space-time continuum has allowed the minions of Xen to establish a stronghold inside one of the main reactor cores in the Lambda Complex.… Read More
After defeating the alien leader Nihilanth, you, Gordon Freeman, declined the mysterious G-Man’s offer of employment and narrowly escaped death at the hands of several alien grunts.
After battling your way through the Lambda Reactor Complex and realigning the antenna dish you were able to make contact with the outside world.
Word has spread of the strange events at Black Mesa and the government is attempting to coverup the truth by reporting “a terrorist plot to obtain U.S. military secrets has been uncovered at the Black Mesa Complex. An undetermined number of civilian personnel have been killed in the well-organised terrorist raid which has been met by U.S. rapid-deployment forces.”
“Our hero has become very bitter toward the government for sending in the storm troopers to kill every living thing at Black Mesa.
He locates another installation where the government continues experimenting with the world of Xen. With the taste of blood still fresh in his mouth, his path is clear.
His HEV suit, torn and battered, is of no use and he must penetrate the lab complex to get a new one.
If he can blast his way through the gauntlet of enemies, an F-16 sits poised for his escape.”
After the exhaustive, confusing and deceitful experiences that you suffered during your first day at the Black Mesa Lab you finally arrive back on Earth. The mysterious man in the suit had left you little choice but to agree to his “offer” of joining the government department that he worked for. Without the knowledge of who, exactly these employers were, you nervously stepped into the teleporter.
On Earth you materialize in the “incoming” portal of your employers military station. Scientific work extends only to fulfil the military needs of your employer, but at least the workers include some familiar faces that put you at ease.
You are a scientist called Gordon Freeman, following a convey with some high-tech weapons to a secret base called “Black Mesa Research Facility”.
The convey got ambushed by a group of revolutionaries.
The way back is blocked.
Forward is the only possibility, as is fighting for your survival.
You play the young lawyer Dr. Alan Green, who was sent to the desert as a safety evaluator to carry out a safety report of Black Mesa.
After a brief walk towards your temporary office you suddenly find yourself in a situation you are not prepared for.
Can you use what you have around you to escape this nightmare?
It was written in the ancient scrolls of Xian that, during the last Crelat of Xen time, a portal would be opened between two universes and a being would cross the void and cause the second re-birth of Nihilanth, and all Xen would be drained of their lifeblood, their knowledge.
And that, in this time, the Xen race would be oppressed by the armies from the far side of the portal.
It was also written that once the portal was opened, a human known as “Freeman” would cross the galactic transverse into Xen space, and set free the three sacred Telnorps, the guardians of the gate who had been captured from the ancient enemies of the Xen, the Zan from the Theldran galaxy.
And so it was that the prophecy came to pass, and the weakened Xen were powerless to resist an onslaught from the Zan. In the dawn of the first Ashaan of Xen time, the elders of the high council sanctioned an uneasy alliance with the perpetrators of the impending disaster, the Human race, in order to restore the sacred telnorps, and thus sealing the Zan gateway… forever.
The ambassador of the Alien Investigation Unit on earth was called upon to “redeem” the situation by employing the use of the very individual who had inadvertently caused the situation…
This is April’s Classic of the Month mod.
It’s 2137. There is a War between Earth and the Mars Colony.

A scientist has discovered that there is a Xenian border world close to the ship.
This will give you the chance to beam out the ship but then….
