====Alternative timeline====
 
 
====Griffin in a Syndicate helicopter?====
 
Griffin and his two men (why not more?)<!-- Try „var int extra_guys=1“ ^_^ --> arrived in the mountain complex by using a helicopter that looks like a Syndicate machine. Strange, isn't it?
 
*Maybe bungie hadn't enough time to create another heli type.
 
*Then again, you might think that they stealed this machine at BGI or a smaller Syndicate base to get into the mountain complex area with more ease. I'm thinking in direction NCW and ID-tagged vehicles.
 
 
 
====About the families Kerr and Hasegawa====
 
Anyone who want to make a poll about the forenames?
 
My suggestion is "Momuto Hasegawa" and "Lorenz Kerr" (for no special reason).
 
 
* Lorenz and Jamie are brother and sister. When Jamie (Kerr) married Momuto she changed her name to Hasegawa.
 
* Momuto is now Lorenz' brothers-in-law.
 
* Now Muro is Lorenz' nephew, Konoko his niece, and he's their uncle.
 
 
 
====Hasegawa kidnapped, Kerr escaped====
 
How did Kerr get away with a Chrysalis prototype and Mai while Hasegawa were kidnapped? Do Kerr saw Syndicate's raid coming and didn't warn Hasegawa?
 
 
Here's a gap filler scenario:
 
* Both saw them coming and knew that the Syndicate wanted the Chrysalis. This was a problem because the prototypes were based on Mai's and Muro's code. -- 13_65_23 ''Kerr: They had been watching us very closely. When they figured out what the Chrysalis was they raided our lab. We'd only grown two prototypes, based on the genetic codes of you and your brother...'' (So the Syndicate could have knew the prototype's "reservation" as well.) To make sure that at least one would made it out they fled in different directions (both weared a protopype on their side). Hasegawa was caught. Kerr went to the kindergarten and took Mai with him. But the time wasn't enough to save Muro also. The Syndicate appeared at Muro's school at first... (This means that the kids aren't twins.)
 
 
 
====Konoko's sub-dermal transmitter and the Sytropin====
 
How did Konoko get her [[Quotes/Speech#Outro_4|sub-dermal transmitter]] implanted when surgery fails on her? Obviously they did it before or little time after the Daodan implantation. When the Daodan was already implanted why did the implanting succeeded? The transformation takes time and regeneration potential becomes stronger when more Daodan cells are already presented. My problem was to get why [[Quotes/Consoles#Sytropin|Sytropin]] should slow down the growth since it seems to be a human growth hormone. So now I think it’s meant to enhance the original cells – slowing down the Daodan growth indirectly by giving it no reason to spread out. Then the resistance refers also to the original cells – simply meaning drug resistance because the Daodan normally adapts only to negative stimuli.

* There's something like a Daodan "aura". You can see it when being over-powered or when using the cheat "chenille". That let you guess that it is a bio-electric field which concentrated Daodan particles. It's always there but not visible all the time. Now the theory is that Mai feels Mukade's field or his particles like pheromones or both.

Gapfilling

This section's goal is to create list of things that influence a sequel, which means to solve some question about plot gaps and what can be ignored because it is just a in-game thing made up for the player.

For example: Why has Muro transformed into a huge mutant when Konoko kills Griffin?

  • We can say it is a gamplay element. Why kill Griffin when nothing changes afterwards?
  • Or we create a plot-wise filler. It could be a hallucination from Konoko because the Daodan corrupt her mind when killing Griffin.


Time setting

Looking at the timeline the story can be seen as direct sequel. But RS is set into the year 2055. Didn't Oni take place in 2032?

Well, (in my opinion) neither Oni's original nor RS's timeline is that much fitting into 2032.

  • This point of view is supported by some footnotes of Oni's Wikipedia Article (following footnotes are from 21 August 2006)
  1. There have been debates as to whether 2032 is the actual year of the game's setting as the manual has never clearly stated this to be so. It is only given that the World Coalition Government was formed in January 12th 2032, and as the game progresses, the possibility of the in-game storyline actually being set in 2032 gets lesser.
  2. According to Konoko's in-game diary, November 22 was a Monday. This is true for the years 2032, 2038, 2049, et cetera.
  3. Officially confirmed to be set in 2032 by Bungie.net's Oni FAQ, although this is still debated due to how tightly the events of Oni would have been packed together, and that the FAQ went up during the Bungie/Microsoft take over.


Some conflicts with the manual:

There's no explicit statement that WCG established the TCTF but it's most probable.
So Hasegase invented his miracle in less the 3 years? (The time is bordered by Jamie's death and Konoko arrival at the TCTF.) That seems very less time for such a super project. Maybe he worked on the idea before he met Jamie. The Daodan's origin is unclear after all.


What happen if I take my thoughts into "2032 - today".

  • Oni's technology is for 2032 more unlikely (in my opion).
  • The TCTF would not be established by WCG but maybe expanded into a secret police.
Nothing is said about the time here: "They told us that abuse of technology was the enemy and that the Technology Crimes Task Force was our guardian."
If WCG was founded in 2032 then Kerr and Konoko were already 20 years at the TCTF.
"his entire life" should be more then one year.


What would be the minimum difference to 2032? Guessing Konoko's age and Griffin years at the TCTF. It might be around "plus 20 years".


Phase stream projector

One and only mentioned: Freedom Riots in 2012. A typo maybe -- should mean 2032?

  • [keywords: phase stream projectors, 2012, Freedom Riots; source: Quotes/Weapons#ph_stream (in-game)]
    "This device is a miniaturized version of the vehicle-mounted phase projectors deployed during the Freedom Riots of 2012. It emits a continuous beam of energy that can stagger or topple enemies."


All other violent events are described as following and let guess 2032:

  • peacekeeping forces [1]
  • time of unrest [2]
  • Uprising War [3]
  • border skirmishes [4][5]
  • Great Uprising [6]


  • [1][keywords: WCG, "peacekeeping forces", infighting; source: THE WORLD COALITION GOVERNMENT (manual)]
    "They created "peacekeeping forces" capable of putting down any infighting [...]"
  • [2][keywords: Network, new geopolitical order (WCG), time of unrest; source: History of the Syndicate (in-game)]
    "During that time of unrest they found that they needed a more centralized armed power base to maintain their operations and so began to arm and train their operatives in a consistent manner. In doing so the faceless Network evolved into the highly trained and heavily armed force that we now know as the Syndicate."
  • [3][keywords: WCG, Uprising War; source: Mercenary Sniper (manual)]
    "Mercenary Snipers are veterans of the Uprising War that left the World Coalition Government in control of the globe. [...]"
  • [4][keywords: World Coalition Government, border skirmishes; source: THE TECHNOLOGY CRIMES TASK FORCE (TCTF) (manual)]
    "One of the excuses World Coalition Government used to grab the reigns was the use of biological weapons by a few of the countries involved in border skirmishes at the time."
  • [5][keywords: leaders of the new regime (WCG), endless border skirmishes; source: THE WORLD COALITION GOVERNMENT (manual)]
    "The leaders of the new regime gave us all kinds of rationalizations for their actions, ranging from endless border skirmishes between impoverished nations to environmental problems that they claimed could only be solved if all of the "citizens of earth" worked together."
  • [6][keywords: Great Uprising, WCG researchers; source: ammo (in-game)]
    "Coordinating the arms of mercenary and corporate forces during the Great Uprising had WCG researchers scrambling to solve their logistical problems. [...]"

What's the connection between Mai and Mukade?

11_39_05 Konoko: There is something familiar about him...I can't quite place it.

  • This statement leaded to the thought that Mukade is/was Hasegawa.
See: TNZ article

Other might want to explain the connection by the Daodan only. Here it goes:

  • There's something like a Daodan "aura". You can see it when being over-powered or when using the cheat "chenille". That let you guess that it is a bio-electric field which concentrated Daodan particles. It's always there but not visible all the time. Now the theory is that Mai feels Mukade's field or his particles like pheromones or both.
See also: (RS) Daodan Theory

But there's still Hardy's concept. We (re-)discovered his statements after had created our own theories.

Posted By: chef
In Response To: Re: Quick question, somebody know this? (Mukade?) (Harry)

People with a Daodan Chrysalis inside them are "super predators" of sorts, so they are very aware of each other: imagine a tiger moving into another tiger's hunting grounds. Anybody who has ever been to the zoo can tell you that you always know when the tigers are about to make their entrance: tigers have a very distinctive odor that you can smell for miles.

Konoko's internal lines in that level were meant to show her own predatory response to the threat that Mukade presents. And when she ends up talking to Mukade he tries to get her to admit that she's feeling the "thrill of the hunt" and that the creature she is becoming likes to kill, but she denies it.
Still we all know how that level ends ;^>

: Hardy LeBel explained on this forum that he has a chrysalis too, so both Mukade and Konoko can sense each other.
: Mukade has a highly developed Chrysalis so he's very experienced in it.
: -Harry

(source: http://carnage.bungie.org/oniforum/oni.forum.pl?read=19468)

The following notes focusing on the mentioned "thrill of hunt" (blood lust).

  1. Consoles, Superhuman During routine physical training Konoko experienced a drop in latency that precipitated a Daodan power spike.
    Her strength, speed and endurance were temporarily improved to what can only be described as superhuman levels.
    [...] While boosted, she demonstrated an uncharacteristic aggressiveness that frightened her instructors. She was asked to stop working out so we could monitor her but she refused. [...]
  2. Diary, chapter 3 Barabas! I can't believe it! I know his record...he's very strong. I know I'm not supposed to enjoy combat but this guy will be the first real challenge I've had.
  3. Diary, chapter 10 That ninja...why do I react to him this way? He feels familiar and I hate him for it. We're like animals whose territory is threatened. I know when I find him we'll be nothing but claws and fangs. The strangest part is that I'm looking forward to it.

Her blood lust got stronger, hadn't it? Now you can interpret that the blood lust set her into a state being able to imagine subconsciously how her enemy would react. Ironic is that she denied it by killing Mukade.


STURMANDERUNG and TITAN

The section has been mostly replaced by the material on the RS technology page.

You have found a possible weakness in Muro's plan. If the Sturmanderung Pulse can be activated before all the orbital transmitters are aligned, some of the Atmospheric Conversion Centers will survive.

And what wound be a problem for a Striker about activating a second pulse while Muro fights Mai? She had better destroyed the last access console or the generators or the dish by using a SBG.

However, there are some more tricky questions.

0) What do "regional processors" mean, how many exist actually?

Is it only Japan with 417 ACC?

1) Is it really the STURMANDERUNG transmitter dish?

Why the blam it seems to suck air and release it ionized? Is it an Atmospheric Processor of a house-own little test ACC? You don't need such a big dish to reach some satellites, right? I mean it wouldn't be that easy taking action against the WCG. They would be advised to build a own little ACC at first which would allow their mad ideas to become deadly praxis. Then they could had copied the modified parts and infiltrated real ACCs.

2) How strong is the environmental pollution, how fast will spread out?

At least we can guess how strong it is by looking at the outro.

The poison will reach non-triggered ACC areas via the global air circulation. (Jet-Streams are around 400 km/h fast.)

3) "ssob" and "uwlb" are still unclear.

What could they stand for?

  • ssob = Senior Scientist on Board (would refer to Hasegawa) / Ships and Subs Operations Board ?
  • uwlb = universal weapon logistic base ?

The idea comes from a TCTF report about Syndicate's history: During that time of unrest they found that they needed a more centralized armed power base to maintain their operations [...]

Other possibilities for uwl(b):

The interpretation goes as following:

  • if "ssob" refer to Daodan's planing phase then "uwlb" is either the note that they are ready for Daodan (mass-)production
  • or "uwlb" stand for the complation of a digital research of the Daodan (Why do they need a "megacomputer"? Not for weather forecasts, right?)
4) Why do they wrote "STURMANDERUNG mountain compound construction" two times? (Point six and ten.)

Maybe they have two mountain compounds? A production base ("uwlb" in Africa) and a commando base (in Japan).

5) Oh, and where went point four, eight, and twelve?

This reminds me somehow on "Donnie Darko". The author wrote a little book about time traveling but each second chapter was missing. Even more strange: There was a fan having that book on a convention but it was never printed. xD

6) There's too many stations: they could never be disarmed before Muro activates them. Who?

What is this supposed to mean? Would WCG fight local Syndicate troops around the ACCs in panic so they can try to repair them? Wouldn't that be too late? If Muro would had blown up all ACCs (like Konoko did) then there would be no problem (no reason) in disarming the Syndicate there.
