Description
This map begun with a blood-marbled room as a possible candidate entry to CC2, but soon evolved into a textural experiment involving two facing worlds, tech vs marble. I tried to find a good tex combination, since most tech(*) textures do not fit well with marble. I hope I can satisfy this. The "Three" in the map title refers to the early textural map design where a lot of structural objects came in groups of three due to the limited texture set. I mean, there are three faces (LION, GARG, SATYR), three daemons (MARBFAC*), three key(color)s... and that's pretty limited.

Description : This map begun with a blood-marbled room as a possible candidate
              entry to CC2, but soon evolved into a textural experiment
              involving two facing worlds, tech vs marble. I tried to find a

================================================================================

Game        : Doom 2
Engine req. : Boom compatible
Map #       : MAP19
Modes       : Single Player only,
              no Cooperative or Deathmatch starts

Difficulty  : implemented
 settings     The ammo/health/skill distribution is laid out in a way that it
              does not depend on monster infight or finding secrets, and as
              such may seem easy even on skill 4 for those who do not rush
              through the monster mass.

              And a hint: "Hide" behind projectile-firing monsters to
              protect against hitscan weapons.

Known bugs  : - Under non-ZDoom, the red skull accelerates, which should not
                happen. This has been worked around, it now gets "out in
                time" in all ports.
              - not all secrets may be reached due to the fact that Legacy
                is not fully Boom compatible
              - [Legacy Software Renderer at least] the light is different
                (dark areas are darker, and light areas are lighter than
                other ports have it)

Base        : from scratch and memory
Build time  : according to Erik it must have been 250 hours
              /me says 300 hours.
              Or 8 months, depending on how you look at it.
Editor used : WinZETH (yes, _Z_eth)

===============================================================================

Where to get this WAD:

    http://linux01.org:2222/

    or your favorite 3dArchives mirror, currently at
    ftp://3darchives.in-span.net/pub/idgames/

    sunet.se is also a nice one!

(*) To clarify: "tech" means the E1 tech textures like CEIL1_1, EXITDOOR,
    DOOR2 and such, while "tek" refers to the Doom2 green textures TEK*.
    TEK would never fit with marble.
    I had to crunch the filename to 8.3, though...
