#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Shadow the Hedgehog  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

Shadow originally appeared in Sonic Adventure 2, and at the end, he fell from
outer space due to wearing out his Super Form in the battle with BioLizard
(the prototype of the Ultimate Life Form). It was assumed that he had died,
but then he reappeared in Sonic Heroes.

There, he was sealed inside a capsule in one of Eggman's bases; and Rouge and
Omega set him free (Omega doing his part in a roundabout way). At the end of
the Dark Story, Rouge and Omega found a room full of Shadow clones on the Egg
Fleet. Rouge was depressed, thinking that the Shadow she found was a fake, but
then Omega said, "You know the thing about cloning... the original must exist
somewhere."

As Eggman revealed in this game, the Shadow in SA2, SH, SB (S-Battle), and ShTH
were all the same one (the original). After Shadow fell from space, Eggman sent
one of his robots to save him - he just lost his memories is all.

Also told in ShTH, is that Shadow was created by both Gerald Robotnik (who we
knew about before), and Black Doom. Doom helped Gerald with Project Shadow by
infusing him (Shadow) with his own blood, and in exchange, asked Gerald to one
day have Shadow give him the Chaos Emeralds. He wanted them so that, when the
Black Comet returned in fifty years, he could teleport it down to the surface
of the Earth.

At the very end of this game, Shadow looks out through a window on the ARK and
says, "Goodbye forever... Shadow the Hedgehog." Most likely, this is his way
of saying that he's moving on from the past.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Maria Robotnik  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

Before Maria died on the ARK fifty years ago, she was a friend of Shadow, and
also she was Gerald's granddaughter. The moment prior to Shadow being ejected
from the Colony in an escape pod, she said the following as her dying words...

"Shadow... I beg of you... please, do it for me... for a better future... for
all the people who live on that planet... give them a chance to be happy. Let
them live for their dreams. Shadow, I know you can do it. That's the reason
that you were brought into this world. Sayonara, Shadow, the Hedgehog."


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Gerald Robotnik  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

Gerald was a scientist, and was both Eggman and Maria's grandfather. He lived
aboard the first Bernoulli space-colony named "ARK"; which, at the time of its
creation, was the most advanced research center of its kind. Not very many
people were aware, but Gerald and the others on the Colony were secretly
developing powerful weapons - among them, a laser with the capability to
decimate an entire planet; codenamed as, "The Eclipse Cannon".

He was developing that Cannon because of his meeting with Black Doom some time
prior. Back then, he was working on "Project Shadow" (a.k.a. the Ultimate Life
Form), but he needed help. So he asked Black Doom for his assistance, and Doom
agreed under a condition - that in the future, Shadow would give the seven
Chaos Emeralds to him. Gerald said he would, and so Doom used his blood to
bring Shadow the Hedgehog to life. What Gerald didn't know, was that Doom
wanted the Emeralds so that he could teleport the "Black Comet" down to Earth,
and eradicate the humans. So, in an attempt to lessen the effects of the
arrangement, Gerald began construction of the Eclipse Cannon. (He intended for
it to be used to obliterate the Comet).

But when GUN shut down the laboratory, and Maria died, Gerald went insane; she
was the only thing he had left to live for, and with her gone, his life was
meaningless. He made modifications to the Eclipse Cannon's programming, so that
if its power were ever boosted by all the Chaos Emeralds, it would begin a
descent towards Earth, and destroy the planet. He also installed a safeguard;
should anyone try to deactivate the program, the BioLizard - the prototype of
the Ultimate Life Form - would attach itself to the ARK, and override its
controls, thus making it impossible to alter its course.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Doctor Eggman Robotnik  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

In Sonic Adventure 2, Eggman found Shadow sealed in cryo-stasis inside Prison
Island (a secret GUN base). He freed him, and in return, Shadow promised to
"grant him a wish"; to fulfill that wish, Shadow also said that Eggman had to
bring more Chaos Emeralds (he used one to unlock Shadow's imprisonment) to the
central control room on the Space Colony ARK.

When Eggman got to the ARK, Shadow told him of the Eclipse Cannon - a weapon
strong enough to tear a planet apart. But as it had been shut down for fifty
years, a large surge of energy was needed to reactivate it. That energy source
being the Chaos Emeralds.

At the end of that game, Shadow fell from outer space after fighting the
BioLizard. It was believed that he had died, however Eggman sent one of his
robots to save him. The reason that the Shadow in Sonic Heroes didn't remember
anything wasn't because he was a copy, but because he had lost most of his
memories due to the trauma he experienced.

Despite that, some of the paths through this game have Eggman telling Shadow
that he (Eggman) made him (Shadow). Most likely, Eggman was just attempting to
get Shadow to surrender and give up.

Here is the exact quote that Eggman says to Shadow nine minutes into his fight
with Devil Doom...

"Shadow... can you hear me...? This might be the last chance I have to speak to
you, so... What I said, about having created you... it was all a lie. Everyone
thought you died during that horrible incident... but I rescued you, with one
of my robots... You lost your memories, that's all... You really are the
Ultimate Life Form my grandfather created!"


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Black Doom / Doom's Eye  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

Black Doom is the ruler of the Black Arms, and has three eyes; two that are
parallel and somewhat glazed over, and one other above them that is more
normal. He told Shadow to gather the seven Chaos Emeralds and bring them to
him; something which Shadow promised to do in the past.

That promise was made fifty years ago, when Black Doom helped Professor Gerald
create the Ultimate Life Form, "Shadow". Gerald was having difficulty with
Project Shadow, so he asked Black Doom for his aid. And in return, he requested
that the seven Chaos Emeralds to be brought to him by Shadow in the future. The
professor agreed, and Doom used his blood to bring Shadow to life.

His reason for asking for the Chaos Emeralds was so that he could teleport the
"Black Comet" - home of the Black Arms - down to the surface of the Earth (the
Comet isn't fast enough to enter into another planet's atmosphere, so he needed
to warp it directly).

Also, Black Doom has a floating eye - "Doom's Eye" - that he has follow Shadow.
It has the capability to project his transparent image, if he can't be at the
specific place in person.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  G.U.N. Commander  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

The GUN Commander lived aboard the ARK fifty years ago, and knew Maria very
well, thinking of her as an older sister. When the ARK was destroyed, and she
was killed, he blamed Shadow for it; since if he hadn't have been created, the
ARK likely wouldn't have been "shut down". Even now after all this time, he
still hates Shadow deeply.

Ironically, it was GUN itself that killed Maria; when she was running away,
one of its troops shot her.

* - Shadow is standing near a tree on a cliff overlooking Westopolis. The wind
    blows a newspaper to him, and it gets stuck on his leg.

NEWSPAPER: "FIRE-IN-THE-SKY" Celebration! 50 Year return of Black Comet!

* - The paper floats away.

SHADOW: ("Shadow the Hedgehog"... Why does that name haunt me? It's the only
        thing I can remember. And that gruesome image...)

* - Maria runs through the halls of the ARK was several GUN soldiers chase her.
    They catch up when she arrives at a dead end, and block the door. She gasps
    as one of the soldiers points a handgun at her. The screen goes black as
    the sound of the gun firing rings out.

SHADOW: Maria!!

SHADOW: Who am I... and why can't I remember anything? And... who is this
        "Maria"?

* - Red clouds approach Westopolis, completely covering the sky, leaving a
    circle open in their center from which thousands of Black Arms pour out.
    One of the larger ones lands on a car, then knocks another vehicle away.

SHADOW: Hmm, look how pathetic they are. I don't have time for these humans.

* - As Shadow starts to walk away, Black Doom speaks.

BLACK DOOM: Shadow...

* - Doom's Eye flies up to the cliff, then projects Black Doom's image from its
    eye.

BLACK DOOM: As you can see, the day of reckoning will soon be here. Find the
            seven Chaos Emeralds, and bring them to me - as promised.

SHADOW: Huh? Who are you and how do you know I'm Shadow? And what are you
        talking about?

* - Black Doom leaves; several explosions trail behind him. Shadow reaches out
    to BD, but one of the blasts knocks him off balance.

SHADOW: Just what was that all about? If he says he knows the truth about who
        I am, then like it or not, I have to believe him. The only way I'm
        going to get the secrets to my past, is to get those Chaos Emeralds!

* - Shadow dashes towards the city.

* - An alarm sounds; a soldier runs in through the door*

GUN SOLDIER: The black aliens have hit six major cities around the world, and
             every city is reporting significant damage and casualties. Among
             them, Westopolis has received the heaviest casualties, due to its
             weakened defense system. Downtown Westopolis has been almost
             completely destroyed. Unconfirmed sources have also reported
             seeing a black hedgehog in Westopolis.

GUN COMMANDER: Shadow? Deploy the troops, NOW! And if you find Shadow with the
               black aliens... then kill them all.

GUN SOLDIER: But sir, isn't Shadow on our side--

GUN COMMANDER: I gave you an order, soldier! He's evil and he's the enemy!

* - The soldier leaves.

GUN COMMANDER: You can't fool me, Shadow. This time, you're mine.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Epilogue - Westopolis  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

* - Shadow is standing near a couple of GUN soldiers. Another soldier begins
    speaking over the radio.

GUN MEMBER (radio): Attention: emergency broadcast to all mobile units;
                    headquarters to all mobile units. All points bulletin, be
                    on the lookout for Shadow, the black hedgehog; wanted in
                    connection with the terrorist attacks. Last seen in the
                    vicinity of downtown Westopolis. Orders are... capture him,

SHADOW: Who am I...? The key to the mystery lies with the one who calls himself
        "Black Doom". He told me to gather up all of the Chaos Emeralds, and
        then, disappeared. I don't know what, or who he is, but the answer must
        lie with the Chaos Emeralds... that much I do believe. GUN soldiers
        were foolish enough to try and get in my way. After defeating them, I
        was able to get my hands on two of the Chaos Emeralds. I'll stop anyone
        who tries to get in my way!

    the phone rings.

SECRETARY (phone): Mister President, we've received a report from the Central
                   Information Agency. Our troops have successfully pushed back
                   the black aliens from Westopolis. We've also managed to
                   suppress enemy forces in five other cities. There's also
                   reports that the CIA's mainframe has been compromised. We're
                   investigating the incidents now. It is a strong possibility
                   that this was also committed by the black aliens.

PRESIDENT: Tell the Commanding Generals that the United Federation will never
           surrender to terrorists.

            Hidden inside that space colony ARK is the most powerful weapon,

BLACK DOOM: That's right. The seven Chaos Emeralds are needed to demonstrate
            its full power, or tomorrow's prosperity ritual will all be for
            nothing.

* - Shadow is standing near a tree on a cliff overlooking Westopolis. The wind
    blows a newspaper to him, and it gets stuck on his leg.

NEWSPAPER: "FIRE-IN-THE-SKY" Celebration! 50 Year return of Black Comet!

SHADOW: ("Shadow the Hedgehog"... Why does that name haunt me? It's the only

* - Maria runs through the halls of the ARK was several GUN soldiers chase her.
    They catch up when she arrives at a dead end, and block the door. She gasps
    as one of the soldiers points a handgun at her. The screen goes black as
    the sound of the gun firing rings out.

SHADOW: Maria!!

SHADOW: Who am I... and why can't I remember anything? And... who is this

* - Red clouds approach Westopolis, completely covering the sky, leaving a
    circle open in their center from which thousands of Black Arms pour out.
    One of the larger ones lands on a car, then knocks another vehicle away.

SHADOW: Hmm, look how pathetic they are. I don't have time for these humans.

* - As Shadow starts to walk away, Black Doom speaks.

BLACK DOOM: Shadow...

* - Doom's Eye flies up to the cliff, then projects Black Doom's image from its
    eye.

BLACK DOOM: As you can see, the day of reckoning will soon be here. Find the
            seven Chaos Emeralds, and bring them to me - as promised.

SHADOW: Huh? Who are you and how do you know I'm Shadow? And what are you
        talking about?

* - Black Doom leaves; several explosions trail behind him. Shadow reaches out
    to BD, but one of the blasts knocks him off balance.

SHADOW: Just what was that all about? If he says he knows the truth about who
        I am, then like it or not, I have to believe him. The only way I'm
        going to get the secrets to my past, is to get those Chaos Emeralds!

* - Shadow dashes towards the city.

GUN SOLDIER: The black aliens have hit six major cities around the world, and
             every city is reporting significant damage and casualties. Among
             them, Westopolis has received the heaviest casualties, due to its
             weakened defense system. Downtown Westopolis has been almost
             completely destroyed. Unconfirmed sources have also reported
             seeing a black hedgehog in Westopolis.

GUN COMMANDER: Shadow? Deploy the troops, NOW! And if you find Shadow with the
               black aliens... then kill them all.

GUN SOLDIER: But sir, isn't Shadow on our side--

GUN COMMANDER: I gave you an order, soldier! He's evil and he's the enemy!

                    vicinity of downtown Westopolis. Orders are... capture him,

    them.

SHADOW: Outta my way. Coming through!

GUN SOLDIER 1: S-STOP! Don't move o-or we'll shoot!

SHADOW: Stupid humans.

BLACK DOOM: Very impressive, Shadow.

SHADOW: Who are you?

BLACK DOOM: You don't remember anything, do you? But you will... in time. But

        "Black Doom". He told me to gather up all of the Chaos Emeralds, and
        then, disappeared. I don't know what, or who he is, but the answer must
        lie with the Chaos Emeralds... that much I do believe. GUN soldiers
        were foolish enough to try and get in my way. After defeating them, I
        was able to get my hands on two of the Chaos Emeralds. I'll stop anyone

SECRETARY (phone): Mister President, we've received a report from the Central
                   Information Agency. Our troops have successfully pushed back
                   the black aliens from Westopolis. We've also managed to
                   suppress enemy forces in five other cities. There's also
                   reports that the CIA's mainframe has been compromised. We're
                   investigating the incidents now. It is a strong possibility
                   that this was also committed by the black aliens.

PRESIDENT: Tell the Commanding Generals that the United Federation will never
           surrender to terrorists.

SECRETARY (phone): Yes, Mister President.

PRESIDENT: This planet was once saved from tyranny and annihilation by you two

        to the humans. These humans... they don't value life... they're going

SONIC: Shadow... Why... why are you siding with them?

        Black Comet that was approaching Earth. Knuckles was already there,
        and he lead me to the alien hideout; where I found the sixth Chaos
        Emerald. The truth will be mine once I get the last one!

EGGMAN: How dare you defy... ME?!

SHADOW: I am Shadow the Hedgehog. I and only I know what is best! No one can

    circle open in their center from which thousands of Black Arms pour out.
    One of the larger ones lands on a car, then knocks another vehicle away.

SHADOW: Hmm, look how pathetic they are. I don't have time for these humans.

BLACK DOOM: As you can see, the day of reckoning will soon be here. Find the

    to BD, but one of the blasts knocks him off balance.

SHADOW: Just what was that all about? If he says he knows the truth about who
        I am, then like it or not, I have to believe him. The only way I'm

GUN SOLDIER: The black aliens have hit six major cities around the world, and
             every city is reporting significant damage and casualties. Among
             them, Westopolis has received the heaviest casualties, due to its
             weakened defense system. Downtown Westopolis has been almost
             completely destroyed. Unconfirmed sources have also reported
             seeing a black hedgehog in Westopolis.

GUN COMMANDER: Shadow? Deploy the troops, NOW! And if you find Shadow with the
               black aliens... then kill them all.

GUN SOLDIER: But sir, isn't Shadow on our side--

SHADOW: Who am I...? The key to the mystery lies with the one who calls himself
        "Black Doom". He told me to gather up all of the Chaos Emeralds, and
        then, disappeared. I don't know what or who he is, but the answer must
        lie with the Chaos Emeralds... that much I do believe. The city was
        caught in the midst of an alien invasion; coming here, I was able to
        find two of the Chaos Emeralds. Now there are five left... I will find
        the truth!

    the phone rings.

SECRETARY (phone): Mister President, we've received a report from the Central
                   Information Agency. Our troops have successfully pushed back
                   the black aliens from Westopolis. We've also managed to
                   suppress enemy forces in five other cities. There's also
                   reports that the CIA's mainframe has been compromised. We're
                   investigating the incidents now. It is a strong possibility
                   that this was also committed by the black aliens.

PRESIDENT: Tell the Commanding Generals that the United Federation will never
           surrender to terrorists.

SECRETARY (phone): Yes, Mister President.

PRESIDENT: This planet was once saved from tyranny and annihilation by you two

SHADOW: Black Doom claims to have knowledge of my past. He claims that I
        had promised to deliver the seven Chaos Emeralds to him; I don't know
        if that's true or not, but he's the only one I can trust for clues
        about my past. In this city, I was able to find two of the Chaos
        Emeralds. Black Doom sent me to a scorching wasteland. Making my way
        through an unfamiliar and treacherous canyon, I managed to find the
        third Chaos Emerald. Now there are only four Emeralds to go, and I
        swear that I will find them all!

        next Chaos Emerald was on a jungle island; I found it in an old GUN

        floating ruins, the doctor's fleet came to attack. At the end of the

        got to the jungle, I saw something I just couldn't believe; the doctor
        had Androids with him that looked exactly like me. I followed the

SHADOW: The truth is hidden in my memories; but I don't know what I can trust
        about what I think I know. However, since this all started, something
        has begun to stir inside of me. I made it to the jungle, and I followed
        the doctor again to the entrance of his secret base. The doctor told me
        that I was an Android. There was a battle between me and one of his
        robots, but in the end, I got the fifth Chaos Emerald. I'm... an
        Android? I don't want to believe it, but to know for sure, I need the

    the other capsules housing other Shadow Androids. He then sees the original
    Shadow fighting BioLizard with Sonic, and the original Shadow falling from
    outer-space.

SHADOW: The pieces are coming together. This "Ultimate Life Form" they keep
        referring to is the black hedgehog, and he... died. And I'm its copy...
        I must be the Android Doctor Eggman created. Then it's clear what needs

        of my past, I went to the doctor's base in order to stop his plan. I
        fought my way through, and took the sixth Chaos Emerald as my prize.

        you really think that YOU could challenge ME?

OMEGA: Doctor Eggman, I will destroy you, and reign supreme!

        straight to Hell!

SHADOW: I am Shadow Android; the ultimate battle life form created by Eggman.
        You may have created me, doctor, but I will now lead this Empire and

$#  Recap  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#

SHADOW: My search for the truth is about to come to an end. After the battle
        with the doctor's robots, I got the fifth Chaos Emerald. To gain an
        understanding of my past from fragments of my memory, I headed to the
        doctor's base. At his request, I activated his base's volcanic
        defense system, and got the sixth Chaos Emerald. There's nobody else
        to stand in my way; and doctor, you're not getting away from me again!

#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

EGGMAN: You did very well, Shadow Android. You have surpassed expectations...
        equal to that of the real Shadow. Excellent! Now give me those
        Emeralds!

SHADOW: Never!

EGGMAN: What?!

SHADOW: I didn't collect them to hand them over to you. I collected them to
        DESTROY you!

EGGMAN: How dare you! I created you... I gave you life... I gave you an order,
        or have you forgotten? Idiot! Perhaps I need to teach you a LESSON!!


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Ending  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

* - Eggman lies under the Egg Dealer. The final Emerald floats to Shadow; as
    it does, the other six encircle him as well.

SHADOW: Finally... I've got all the Chaos Emeralds!

EGGMAN: I made you... and this is how you repay me?!

SHADOW: I am Shadow Android, the ULTIMATE life form... A copy of Shadow the
        Hedgehog. With the power of these Emeralds, I will be stronger than
        him! This is WHO I AM!

EGGMAN: What?!

SHADOW: Goodbye, doctor.

* - As Shadow slams his hand down to Eggman, the screen goes black.

EGGMAN: GAAAAHHHH!!!

* - Red clouds approach Westopolis, completely covering the sky, leaving a
    circle open in their center from which thousands of Black Arms pour out.
    One of the larger ones lands on a car, then knocks another vehicle away.

SHADOW: Hmm, look how pathetic they are. I don't have time for these humans.

* - As Shadow starts to walk away, Black Doom speaks.

BLACK DOOM: Shadow...

* - Doom's Eye flies up to the cliff, then projects Black Doom's image from its
    eye.

BLACK DOOM: As you can see, the day of reckoning will soon be here. Find the
            seven Chaos Emeralds, and bring them to me - as promised.

SHADOW: Huh? Who are you and how do you know I'm Shadow? And what are you
        talking about?

* - Black Doom leaves; several explosions trail behind him. Shadow reaches out
    to BD, but one of the blasts knocks him off balance.

SHADOW: Just what was that all about? If he says he knows the truth about who
        I am, then like it or not, I have to believe him. The only way I'm
        going to get the secrets to my past, is to get those Chaos Emeralds!

* - Shadow dashes towards the city.

GUN SOLDIER: The black aliens have hit six major cities around the world, and
             every city is reporting significant damage and casualties. Among
             them, Westopolis has received the heaviest casualties, due to its
             weakened defense system. Downtown Westopolis has been almost
             completely destroyed. Unconfirmed sources have also reported
             seeing a black hedgehog in Westopolis.

GUN COMMANDER: Shadow? Deploy the troops, NOW! And if you find Shadow with the
               black aliens... then kill them all.

GUN SOLDIER: But sir, isn't Shadow on our side--

GUN COMMANDER: I gave you an order, soldier! He's evil and he's the enemy!

SHADOW: Who am I...? The key to the mystery lies with the one who calls himself
        "Black Doom". He told me to gather up all of the Chaos Emeralds, and
        then, disappeared. I don't know what, or who he is, but the answer must
        lie with the Chaos Emeralds... that much I do believe. The city had
        been destroyed by the black creatures; it seems like they were after
        the Emeralds. I was able to stop them, though, and took two of the
        Emeralds for myself. Now there are five left... and they will all be

        ran into Sonic along the highway that had been destroyed in the black
        creatures' attack. I followed the creatures, and succeeded in

        fight you either. I'm collected the Emeralds to find my own answers.
        So why don't you just back off?!

    the phone rings.

SECRETARY (phone): Mister President, we've received a report from the Central
                   Information Agency. Our troops have successfully pushed back
                   the black aliens from Westopolis. We've also managed to
                   suppress enemy forces in five other cities. There's also
                   reports that the CIA's mainframe has been compromised. We're
                   investigating the incidents now. It is a strong possibility
                   that this was also committed by the black aliens.

PRESIDENT: Tell the Commanding Generals that the United Federation will never
           surrender to terrorists.

SECRETARY (phone): Yes, Mister President.

* - The President hangs the phone up. He looks at a picture of Sonic & Shadow.

PRESIDENT: This planet was once saved from tyranny and annihilation by you two

* - The younger GUN-C gets to the door to Geral'd lab, and looks in the glass.
    Inside, Gerald and Black Doom are talking near Shadow's pod.

GUN COMMANDER (voiceover): Witnessing it all... the plan to create that
                           horrifying evil creature... that black creature,
                           and that insane professor who unleashed it all!

* - As the pod starts to move, the young GUN-C starts screaming. The pod sits
    upright, and Shadow opens his eyes.

SHADOW: So... the professor created me... with Black Doom?

GUN COMMANDER: You don't fool me! It's not just about Maria. Thanks to you,
               everyone I knew and loved was killed when the ARK was destroyed.
               Worst of all, my family! Finally... justice is served!

* - He fires his gun, but Shadow's now standing behind the Commander, faced
    away from him, with his eyes closed.

SHADOW: If what you say is true, then I will respectfully accept my fate.

GUN COMMANDER: You mean to tell me that, you really don't remember a thing?

SHADOW: But I just need some time... to uncover the real truth.

* - As Shadow walks off, the Commander looks at his gun and falls to his knees.

SHADOW: My search for the truth is about to come to an end. I found the fifth
        Chaos Emerald aboard the Space Colony ARK. The ARK collapsed after the
        black creature's attack, and I was left behind. I ran into Vector, and
        I helped him find the computer room, along with one of the Chaos
        Emeralds. There's only one more Chaos Emerald to go. The truth is
        within my grasp!

    Black Doom floats down from above.

BLACK DOOM: What is this defiance?!

SHADOW: Black Doom... I need to know the truth. Am I the one the humans refer
        to as the "Evil One"? Tell me... I need to know!

BLACK DOOM: It is true. I created you... you are a part of me.

* - Shadow looks down, and Vector walks a bit closer to him.

VECTOR: Hey, Shadow... you okay?

SHADOW: If that's true, then I'll have to accept my responsibilities for my
        crimes. I will avenge the victims who died aboard the ARK on that
        tragic day.

BLACK DOOM: The humans seemed to have convinced you with this absurdity
            Therefore, I have no choice but to kill you too!

BLACK DOOM: Shadow! This isn't over yet! The Black Arms will rise again...

SHADOW: I am Shadow the Hedgehog; a research experiment... gone deadly wrong.
        I've caused so much destruction... I should never have been created...
        This is who I am...

    circle open in their center from which thousands of Black Arms pour out.
    One of the larger ones lands on a car, then knocks another vehicle away.

SHADOW: Hmm, look how pathetic they are. I don't have time for these humans.

    eye.

BLACK DOOM: As you can see, the day of reckoning will soon be here. Find the
            seven Chaos Emeralds, and bring them to me - as promised.

SHADOW: Huh? Who are you and how do you know I'm Shadow? And what are you

    to BD, but one of the blasts knocks him off balance.

             completely destroyed. Unconfirmed sources have also reported
             seeing a black hedgehog in Westopolis.

GUN COMMANDER: Shadow? Deploy the troops, NOW! And if you find Shadow with the
               black aliens... then kill them all.

        lie with the Chaos Emeralds... that much I do believe. The city had
        been destroyed by the black creatures; it seems like they were after

$#  Recap  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#

SHADOW: For what purpose do I exist? The only clue I have to regaining my lost
        past lies with seeking out the Chaos Emeralds. I defeated the black
        creatures in the woods, but I was unable to locate a Chaos Emerald.
        Having cornered Black Doom, he summoned an enormous creature from the
        ground. He apparently wanted me asleep until some upcoming "ritual",
        but I was able to drive him back. Mark my words, Black Doom... these
        so-called "pathetic humans" are not my enemies!


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Prologue, part 1  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

* - The ship from before has now entered outer-space, and the ARK comes into
    view. Inside the ship, Shadow is looking at a Chaos Emerald, which is
    fueling the engines.

SHADOW: A Chaos Emerald? You've gotta be kidding me, guys! This is like taking
        candy from a baby, which is fine by me.

* - He smashes the glass concealing the Emerald, and takes it out. The lights
    start flickering, and an alarm blares.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  prologue, part 2  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

* - Shadow is looking out the window of the ship, and hears Maria in his mind.

MARIA: Shadow! Help me!

* - He sees himself inside the ARK fifty years ago, when Maria died.

SHADOW: Maria?!

MARIA: Please, Shadow, I need your help! My grandfather's experiments...
       something's gone horribly wrong! *grabs Shadow's hand*

SHADOW: What is it?

MARIA: The research lab... it's going to be destroyed. Something must be done!
       Please Shadow, I beg you! Help grandfather and those aboard the ARK!
       Please!

SHADOW: I'll be there, Maria. I swear, whatever it takes, I'll take care of the
        ARK and the professor!


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Epilogue  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

* - Shadow is inside a capsule, ready to launch to Earth. Maria falls down to
    the floor outside the capsule, then looks up.

SHADOW: Maria!

MARIA: Please, Shadow... I need your help! Everyone's fate depends on...
       you... *collapses*

SHADOW: MARIA!!

* - The capsule ejects from the colony, speeding downward to Earth.

$#  Recap  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#

SHADOW: The truth is hidden in my memories, but I don't know what I can trust
        about what I think I know... However, since this all started, something
        has begun to stir inside of me. I defeated a giant monster that Black
        Doom summoned from the ground. Aboard the ARK, I clearly remember
        something that happened fifty years ago, as I got the fifth Chaos
        Emerald. I stopped a rampaging experiment aboard the ARK, to protect
        Maria and the professor. Wait for me, Maria. Soon, the truth will all
        be clear. Very soon...

#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

* - Sonic and Shadow are running through a room.

SHADOW: Maria...

SONIC: Shadow! Look, up there!

SHADOW: Huh?

* - The Black Comet is in the sky, encircled by fire.

SHADOW: What is that?

SONIC: Once every fifty years, that "Black Comet" passes by this planet.
       *laugh* Oh? Do you think those black creatures are somehow connected
       with that Comet?

SHADOW: Black... Comet... Ugh!

* - Shadow falls to his knees, and holds his head.

SONIC: Shadow, what's wrong?!

SHADOW: I think you're right... I feel it... they're up there... *stands up*
        That's where the answers are... I've got to get to that Comet!

$#  Recap  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#

SHADOW: My search for the truth is about to come to an end. I remember saving
        Maria onboard the ARK of the past, when I got the fifth Chaos Emerald.
        I knew the key to this mystery lay within the Black Comet, so I went
        with Sonic and the others. We headed for the center of the Comet to
        find Black Doom, and got the sixth Chaos Emerald. There's nowhere else
        to run, Black Doom! Let's end this, once and for all!


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

BLACK DOOM: You've done well, Shadow. I'm very impressed you've made it this
            far...

SHADOW: Black Doom! Your rule ends here, and it ends NOW!

SONIC: So you're behind all this. Like it or not... the game's over!

BLACK DOOM: *chuckle* Fools! The Black Arms are more than superior... we are
            perfect! Do you really think you have any real chance of
            defeating us?! *laugh*

SHADOW: It's you who should be scared, Black Doom. I made a promise to Maria
        to save the planet she loved so much... and I WILL!

BLACK DOOM: Then get ready to die! Let me show you the ultimate power in the
            universe!


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Ending  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

* - Black Doom lies on the ground. The final Emerald floats to Shadow; as it
    does, the other six encircle him as well.

SHADOW: Finally, I've got all the Chaos Emeralds!

BLACK DOOM: Shadow! This isn't over yet! The Black Arms will rise again...

SONIC: Let's do this!

SHADOW: I'm Shadow the Hedgehog, and I made a promise that I intend to keep.
        With the power of these Emeralds, Black Doom and his army are
        finished! This is WHO I AM!

        raised, I got the sixth Chaos Emerald. One more to go! I'll crush

        goes up against you. This time you're going down, Sonic!

BLACK DOOM: Well done, Shadow... Our ritual can now commence as planned. Give
            me the Chaos Emeralds.

BLACK DOOM: *laugh* Ignorant fools... We're here to save the humans from their
            own demise. We offer... salvation.

SHADOW: What?

BLACK DOOM: Their greed, thirst for power, and affinity for betrayal has
            them on a path of self-destruction. Their actions will lead to
            extinction of their species. We're here to save them from

SONIC: Those black creatures just warped the Comet down to the surface using
       Chaos Control!

ROUGE: No! That's impossible!

SHADOW: That's why you needed the Chaos Emeralds...

BLACK DOOM: *laugh* Precisely. The Comet's velocity isn't powerful enough to
            pass through another planet's atmosphere. The Emeralds amplify the
            space-time control powers of Chaos Control. We need them to charge
            to full power. It's the perfect plan. That's why I needed the
            professor to help me.

BLACK DOOM (voiceover): The professor was in development of the ultimate life

                        helped him, and he promised to deliver me the seven
                        Chaos Emeralds. That's how you were created, Shadow.

KNUCKLES: Yeah, let's do this! I'll crush that cosmic rock ball! Ugh!

* - As Knuckles throws his fist in the air, he freezes in place.

SONIC: Knuckles! What's wrong?! *freezes* Ugh!

* - Everyone else freezes as well.

BLACK DOOM: *laugh* A special weapon... this gas, once released, is quickly
            absorbed into your bloodstream. In a moment, total paralysis will
            hit your nervous system. The end is near, now... *laugh* Ahh... my
            dear offspring... Eat and devour these savory dishes!

* - A few blob-like Black Arms start sliding over to everyone.

AMY: Help me! Stop it!!

* - They all start pleading randomly. Shadow begins recalling several things
    that he was told.

BLACK DOOM   : "Remember..."
GUN COMMANDER: "I will avenge those whose blood was spilled!"
SHADOW       : "Did I... die?"
EGGMAN       : "I gave you life, Shadow!"
BLACK DOOM   : "That's why you were created..."
MARIA        : "Please help me, Shadow..."

* - Shadow opens his eyes, and stands up. He stomps on the Black Arm by him.

BLACK DOOM: What?

SHADOW: I am Shadow the Hedgehog. I've left the past behind me. No one can tell
        me what to do now! I will destroy you, Black Doom!

BLACK DOOM: I gave you life, and THIS is how you repay me? *laugh* The irony
            of it all, is I gave you life... now... I'll take it back! *laugh*

* - He turns and floats away. Shadow follows him.

            ...What's this?!

* - Shadow stands up.

BLACK DOOM: Well, well, well... seems like you're immune to my mind control.

SHADOW: You have no control over me, Black Doom. I now understand why I am
        here. I made a promise and I'm here to keep it. Today, I put my past
        behind me.

* - He jumps up to attack Black Doom, but he (Doom) teleports away.

BLACK DOOM (off-screen): Have it your way, Shadow. So be it... be prepared to
                         meet your maker. Your past, present, and future ends
                         here... today! Prepare to die! Say "Goodbye", Shadow,
                         as you witness my true wrath!

* - The seven Chaos Emeralds fly around Shadow. He raises his arms up and
    closes his eyes to concentrate, causing the Emeralds to move faster.
    Shadow floats a bit off the ground and is enveloped by a golden light
    as he transforms into Super Shadow. He flies upward.

quotes started/ended. I don't know if it's set in stone, though, so they may

DEVIL DOOM: I gave you life, and yet you defy me? So be it! You shall pay for
            your ingratitude with relentless pain!

EGGMAN (radio): Shadow, can you hear me? We've managed to escape from that
                Comet. There's no need to hold back; cause as much havoc as
                you need to!

TAILS (radio): Go for it, Shadow!

SONIC (radio): With the power of the Chaos Emeralds, you can launch the Chaos
               Spear! Use it to impale that thing!


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  00:36 - 00:48  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

KNUCKLES (radio): Hey Shadow, can you hear me? You need Rings in order to
                  maintain your Super Form. You'll burn through your Rings over
                  time, so keep an eye to make sure you don't run out!

AMY (radio): You can get more Rings from those balloons!


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  00:57 - 01:13  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

EGGMAN (radio): Is that thing invincible?! No! He's got to have some sort of
                weak point!

ROUGE (radio): That's it! The eye! His weak point HAS to be the eye that's
               following you!

KNUCKLES (radio): All right, then! Shadow, his eye keeps moving - you've got to
                  track it down.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  01:56 - 02:06  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

SONIC (radio): Shadow, you may be invincible in your Super Form, but getting
               hit will cause you to lose time!

AMY (radio): It's all over if you run out of Rings. If you're running low,
             focus on getting more first!


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  02:56 - 03:07  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

TAILS (radio): Shadow, can you hear me? If you're too far away, your Chaos
               Spear will be useless. But if you get too close, he'll warp away
               from you. You need to keep the right distance!


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  03:57 - 04:06  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

EGGMAN (radio): Shadow, it's useless to attack those flying objects. Listen
                carefully: Use your full-power Chaos Spear to attack his eye!
                That's his weak point!


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  04:57 - 05:22  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

DEVIL DOOM: Why? Why can't you understand that these humans are the parasites
            of this world? Absolute power is the only way to bring order to the
            planet... The humans must be eliminated! Shadow, open your eyes.
            Realize, that sympathizing with these humans, has all been a
            mistake!


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  05:57 - 06:16  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

EGGMAN (radio): Shadow... can you hear me? The gas from that Comet has... still
                made its way into our shelter...

AMY (radio): Aah! *cough* I... can't move...!

KNUCKLES (radio): Sh-Shadow... Don't, worry about us... You've got to...
                  destroy that thing!


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  06:57 - 07:12  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

DEVIL DOOM: Before long, the gas from this Comet will have spread over the
            entire planet... Shadow, cease these futile attempts to resist.
            You alone cannot change this planet's fate!


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

                you... it was all a lie. Everyone thought you died during that

* - Shadow steps out onto the ledge of the Comet.

SHADOW: Only one thing left to do...

* - The camera shows a far-away view of the surrounding area. Shadow leaps into
    the air, and flies to the underside of the Comet. He positions himself,
    ready to move the Comet.

SHADOW: To put the past behind me! Chaos... CONTROL!

* - An incredible gold light emanates from Shadow. The Comet teleports away,
    reappearing under the ARK; in the firing range of the Eclipse Cannon.
    The Cannon starts charging a blast of energy. It fires, and tears the Comet
    apart in a massive explosion. One of the debris collides with the camera,
    and everything goes black.

EGGMAN: How about giving me back those Chaos Emeralds now?

PRESIDENT: How ironic... After the way we all treated him, he saved us all in
           the end. We were all wrong about the professor. Let us pay homage to
           Professor Gerald. Let's work to ensure peace and prosperity for a

(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!)
(Yeah!!)
(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!!)

It's been a long rough road, and I'm finally here.
I move an inch forward; it feels like a year.
Everything I'm feelin' seems so unreal--
Is it true? Is it true?

I take one step forward and two steps back;
Got a hundred thousand pounds sittin' on my back.
Up, down, all around; don't know quite what to do, to get through.

But I'm on my way! (On my way!)
(On my way! On my way!)

Here I am! (Here I am!)
Made it to, the end of you!

Never had a chance, but I'm around!

(No! No!)

(No! No! No! No!)

Well, now I'll never turn back! (I'll never turn back!)
I'll never turn that way!
No matter how life tries to face me,
I turn the other, WAY!

Now and then, (now and then!)
My head starts to spin, (my head starts to spin!)
But I'll never turn back, again!!

(No! No!)

From this moment on, (moment on!)
I am moving on, (moving on!)
And I'll never turn back!!

(No!)

(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!)
(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!)
(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!)

I guess I'm moving all right and I'm on my way,
Facing every moment every day-by-day.
Take a chance; sleep a while; take some time for it to [?],   <(Probably wrong)
And get straight; and get straight.

What will I become if I don't look back?
Give myself a reason, for this and that?
I can learn, I'll return, I will stay right here,
Where I'm at; where I'm at!!

But I'm on my way! (On my way!)
(On my way! On my way!)

Here I am! (Here I am!)
Made it to, the end of you!

Never had a chance, but I'm around!

(No! No!)

Well, now I'll never turn back! (I'll never turn back!)

But I'll never turn back, again!!

From this moment on, (moment on!)
I am moving on, (moving on!)
And I'll never turn back!!

#$#$#$#$#$#$#

* - Shadow, atop a cliff, loads a clip into a gun. He looks over at the camera
    and cocks the weapon.

    On a motorbike, Shadow is riding through Westopolis. Black Hawks swoop down
    from above as a large Black Arm throws a car at a couple of GUN troops -
    it explodes. Shadow gets closer to the large Black Arm. He rams the
    motorcycle into it, leaping away as it blows up.

    Several GUN soldiers are firing at the aliens, as hundreds more pour out
    from the vortex in the sky. One of the Black Arms lands on a car, then
    throws another one away. The troops continue to fire on the aliens. Shadow
    stands on a ledge, overlooking the chaos below. He uses Chaos Control to
    teleport away.

    A view of Shadow slowly walking through a forest comes on, before switching
    to him in Westopolis, firing at the Black Arms.

    Sonic, along with everyone else, run through Westopolis.

    Shadow warps behind a few Black Arms, and kicks them away. Elsewhere, GUN
    soldiers fire at a thick smoke from which Shadow emerges. Their gunshots
    bounce off him as a dark aura surrounds him. He uses Chaos Blast to knock
    them down.

    Black Doom motions for the Black Arms to continue their assault.
    In GUN's headquarters, the Commander also gives the signal for his troops.
    And Eggman, in his base, orders his robots to move out.

    Above the Earth, the ARK comes into view as its Eclipse Cannon charges up.

    A GUN soldier tries to crawl away on the ground. Shadow stands over him -
    his eyes reflecting the nearby flames as he trembles with rage.

    Sonic, covered in dirt, collapses on the ground as Shadow stands behind
    him. Shadow looks on ahead; activating Chaos Control, he flies at the
    camera.

    The "Shadow the Hedgehog" logo appears.

You cannot believe,
But when we rot, you will!

Well, we're almost dead,
Almost dead,
Almost dead to the world!

Almost dead,
Almost dead,
Almost dead to the world!

*Slight instrumental break*

Well, we're almost dead,
Almost dead,
Almost dead to the world!

Almost dead,
Almost dead,
Almost dead to the world!!

*Instrumental break*

Well, we're almost dead,
Almost dead,
Almost dead to the world!

Almost dead,
Almost dead,
Almost dead to the world!

Well, we're almost dead!

$#  Waking Up  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

Waking up; breaking out...
This is what it's like to be free.
Rip it up; tear it down...
This is what it means to be free.

Jet sounds a distant roar behind you,
As you try to clear your head.
You start to look, and answers find you;
Your inner purpose lies ahead.

Waking up; breaking out...
This is what it's like to be free.
Rip it up; tear it down...
This is what it means to be free.

Waking up; breaking out...
This is what it's like to be free.
Rip it up; tear it down...
This is what it means to be free.

One step to calm the storm inside you;
Unlock the secrets in your head.
Not another day; no more, confusion...
No more living like we're dead.

It seems it's just out of sight!
Those with answers always get their way!
But I think they should know,
That we're coming for them! (Now!!)

*Slight instrumental break*

Waking up; breaking out...
This is what it's like to be free.
Rip it up; tear it down...
This is what it means to be free.

Waking up; breaking out...
This is what it's like to be free.
Rip it up; tear it down...
This is what it means to be free.

Waking up; breaking out...
This is what it's like to be free.
Rip it up; tear it down...
This is what it means to be free.

$#  Chosen One  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

I can't remember, anything at all...
I've been turning it all around.

I'm sorry, oh so sorry...
Is this what I have become?

Wish I may, wish I might,
Be someone else tonight.
Sometimes I wish I was never born at all.

I keep on trying to save the world,
'Cuz in the end I know...
I'm the chosen one!!

(I'm the chosen one!)

I can't remember, what I used to be...
Something's turning me upside-down.

You made me, and I love you...
But I can't change the things I've done!

(I'm the chosen one.)

Wish I may, wish I might,
Be someone else tonight.
Sometimes I wish I was never born at all.

I keep on trying to save the world,
'Cuz in the end I know,
I'm the chosen one!!

(The ch-ch-chosen one! One! One! One!)

(The ch-ch-chosen one! One! One! One!)
(I'm the chosen one.)

$#  All Hail Shadow  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

All hail, Shadow;
Heroes rise again!
Obliterating everything that's not your friend!

Nothing can stop you now;
No ghost to bring you down!
When there's nothing left to lose, you win!

(Come on! Let's go!)
(Follow me in my shadow!)

Suffer alone, and it will set you free.
Only through trial do we, find the strength we need!
It's never over; it's just another day,
Of hope and tragedies, and everything that comes our way!

Determination of the strong~...
Found the meaning that you searched for so long!

All hail, Shadow;
Heroes rise again!
Obliterating everything that's not your friend!

Nothing can stop you now;
No ghost to bring you down!
When there's nothing left to lose, you win!

(Come on! Let's go!)
(Follow me in my shadow!)

Somewhere in chaos, we all find ourselves.
This destruction is the only tale we tell!

White is black, and black is white;
Right is wrong, and wrong is right!
Nothing ever fills this hole inside your heart!

Determination of the strong~...
Found the meaning that you searched for so long!

All hail, Shadow;
Heroes rise again!
Obliterating everything that's not your friend!

Nothing can stop you now;
No ghost to bring you down!
When there's nothing left to lose, you win!

(Come on! Let's go!)
(Follow me in my shadow!)

(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!)
(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!)
(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!)

(Oh yeah!!)

(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!)
(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!)
(Yeah!!)
(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!!)

It's been a long rough road, and I'm finally here.
I move an inch forward; it feels like a year.
Everything I'm feelin' seems so unreal--
Is it true? Is it true?

I take one step forward and two steps back;
Got a hundred thousand pounds sittin' on my back.
Up, down, all around; don't know quite what to do, to get through.

But I'm on my way! (On my way!)
(On my way! On my way!)

Here I am! (Here I am!)
Made it to, the end of you!

Never had a chance, but I'm around!

(No! No!)

(No! No! No! No!)

Well, now I'll never turn back! (I'll never turn back!)
I'll never turn that way!
No matter how life tries to face me,
I turn the other, WAY!

Now and then, (now and then!)
My head starts to spin, (my head starts to spin!)
But I'll never turn back, again!!

(No! No!)

From this moment on, (moment on!)
I am moving on, (moving on!)
And I'll never turn back!!

(No!)

(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!)
(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!)
(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!)

I guess I'm moving all right and I'm on my way,
Facing every moment every day-by-day.
Take a chance; sleep a while; take some time for it to [?],   <(Probably wrong)
And get straight; and get straight.

What will I become if I don't look back?
Give myself a reason, for this and that?
I can learn, I'll return, I will stay right here,
Where I'm at; where I'm at!!

But I'm on my way! (On my way!)
(On my way! On my way!)

Here I am! (Here I am!)
Made it to, the end of you!

Never had a chance, but I'm around!

(No! No!)

(No! No! No! No!)

Well, now I'll never turn back! (I'll never turn back!)
I'll never turn that way!
No matter how life tries to face me,
I turn the other, WAY!

Now and then, (now and then!)
My head starts to spin, (my head starts to spin!)
But I'll never turn back, again!!

(No! No!)

From this moment on, (moment on!)
I am moving on, (moving on!)
And I'll never turn back!!

(No!)

(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!)
(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!)
(Follow my heart! Follow my heart! Oh yeah!)

I!
I!
I'm never turning back!

Just a few notes...

Assuming what information you send in does make it into this guide, then your
name will be added to the Credits section. In the event that you would either
like to keep your name private ("anonymous"), or if you don't want any credit
at all, please make a note of it in the email, and I'll act accordingly.

Now, if you do want your name added, please give a name to which I can
attribute credit. If you don't have any particular alias in mind, then I'll use
the first part of your email (i.e. SomeDude@SomeEmail would be "SomeDude").

Thank you in advance for any contributions.
