    LEAD THE FIRST
    MANNED MISSION TO MARS

    While commencing the landing sequence, a strange force field surrounding the Cydonia region is encountered forcing an emergency crash landing. Communications with mission control are lost and as the only uninjured crew member, you are challenged to locate and eliminate the force field that has you trapped on the surface.

    This quest will take you to a time and place uninvestigated by humankind... until now.

    Re: REDMOON MISSION
    Our home, the planet Earth, is in jeopardy. Our continued existence is being challenged by the Earth herself. Ten years of severe global upheaval has claimed the lives of billions. The Earth has sent a message loud enough for all to hear. And that message is... change.

    Humanity's future hinges on the prospect of colonising another planet. A planet nearby... a planet akin to our own. Surveying the Red Planet for the prospect of colonisation must begin now, and that is your mission.

    Your destination is the Cydonia Mensae region of Mars. Photographic data received from probes has revealed the existence of structures that appear to be of intelligent origin, including a giant humanoid face over a mile long.

    It is here, in Cydonia, that the first human shall walk upon Martian soil with the hope of finding a new home for mankind.

    Good luck and Godspeed.
