Well, talking and arguing on forums about what's cannon or not, if we would see Shephard in the future or not ... is pointless. Let's start somewhere. I wonder how many Half Life fans really want any slightest reference of Shephard in the next Half Life games. I'm not a huge fan of Adrian (I like Gordon more), but I would really (as in really, really, really) love to see how big is Adrian's crowd. So, start signing please: "We want Adrian Shephard back!" Petition Note: english is not my language, and the way I wrote the petition could be a bit rough. If any of you think there is need of improvement in the petition's text, please advice me, and correct me with whatever may sound improper. If this works and if we raise a lot of signatures, I intend to advance the petition to Valve. Who knows, maybe we will be heard! Also, I would like to thank to any moderator who might help at this by stikying it somewhere (wherever he thinks it's best). I am serious and I really want to take this action into developing and any help would do. Let's spread the word into Half Life community. Maybe we'll get an easter egg in Half Life 5, a toy-soldier on a desk in an abandoned room with this inscription on the back: Adrian Shephard, corporal, HECU Corps. I would die happy after that.
