Protocols

From Memories of Mars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Protocols tab, and list of categories

Protocols in Memories of Mars are missions/quests that will make you discover the game from A to Z. You will discover every aspects of the game: building, crafting, locations (biospheres, outposts, platforms, secret lab, PvP zone...), every enemies (from tiny spiders to the huge Boss), lore (Intelligence fragments for launching the capsule to Earth), etc. This is why you should do them as soon as possible.

There are 39 protocols divided in 7 categories:

When you finish a category of protocols, you will receive an audio Neural Transmission with advice and lore.

Here is the detailed list :



AUDIO NEURAL TRANSMISSION : MISSION BRIEFING

Greetings, Young One.
If you are hearing this message, we did not make it.

I am... was... Stephan Fall, Chief Engineer of the Unified Security Corp.
I have implanted this program into your cerebral cortex, so that it would activate itself upon your awaking.

Listen, Young One, something strange is going on here on Mars...
We never fully understood what caused the system failures...
Time was short – too short, the solar flare was inbound...

Seems like it is up to you now, to find out what happened to us and the Martian Colony.

Search out the planet, gather intelligence – our memories, and send them back to Earth.
This emergency routine is set up to create a sequence of protocols that may guide your path.
I know this wasn't the original purpose you were designed for, but you are our only hope in telling our story.

You might run into other young ones here in the colony that are also waking up just like you did.
They will no doubt be as disoriented as you are.
Help them out as much as you can, together you will be stronger than as individuals.

This is a barren planet, but we have found resources that allowed us to survive.
I'm sure you can do equally well.

Good Luck, Young One.

Greetings Friend.
I see you have been busy.

You found the messages sent out from our Governor.
He was a bonehead and had no idea what was really happening behind the scenes.

You need to dig deeper.
Search every place you find for data.
Follow the Protocols.

Those that have the real information will have left it where they worked or fell.
I believe there was much more happening here than any of us realized, even those of us who thought we knew everything.

Find these secrets for us, we are counting on you.

AUDIO NEURAL TRANSMISSION

Greetings Friend.
As you have realized, there were many competing factions here on Mars:

Zhao vs Bell
USC vs DGC
Scientists vs Engineers

None of us seemed to get along, at least that’s how it looked to everyone at the time.
While we carved out our own little pieces of turf on Mars, plotting our plots, something else was operating behind us, in the shadows.
Something was growing, learning, working in concert; unlike us.

Find out what that is, learn its secrets, and figure out how to deal with it, if you want to survive.

AUDIO NEURAL TRANSMISSION

Greetings Friend.
You are uncovering one of our stories behind the scenes:

Two households, both alike in dignity,
On fair Mars, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-crossed lovers meet their fate.

Yes, Shakespeare can even appear on Mars.
They are but two families in the plot here.

More needs to be found, more needs to be revealed...
... and you are our Bard here, creating this new tale.

AUDIO NEURAL TRANSMISSION

Greetings Friend.

Scientists and Engineers, waging war with their creations.
You are uncovering their secrets, but have you grasped the meaning yet?

When new life grows beyond its makers, when code starts thinking for itself, how... why did this happen?
This wasn’t something any of us meant to happen, at least not me.
But was it just fate or something else working a different plan, something none of us knew was even there among us?

Keep searching, more information is needed.
You are getting closer to the truth, closer than we ever came to it.

Then again you are better than we ever were...
At least I made one thing right.

AUDIO NEURAL TRANSMISSION

Greetings Friend.
Your findings about Dr. Carter are troubling.

She was like a mother to all of us, in both science and engineering.
Mother to Mother, she was her creator, the one that gave us purpose.
Was she betraying us, her children?

Or was she just helping her other child to survive?
To grow into something more than we could ever be, to be the one that would do on Mars what we were not able to?

I fear this tale is not ending well.
You are our Bard, this must not be our ending, just an intermission.

Close the story, give us a true ending.
Complete the protocols and find the remaining pieces.
Do not let this become a tragedy.

Greetings Friend.

A glooming peace this morning with it brings;

Than these Memories of Mars.
