CROSSING ACHERON 2
Description
CROSSING ACHERON is the second level in the INFERNO series. Having passed through DANTE'S GATE and survived, you now find yourself in a keep on the shores of the river Acheron. This is the second leg of the journey in your search for Beatrice. Your guide, Virgil, is nowhere to be found. "He's buggered off!" you think to yourself; but you have no time now to even think: you are immediately challenged by several Demons, and in the distance you hear the eerie purring of the Arch-Vile. (Just be sure not to stare at him for too long before you start running.) As usual, you dispatch what fiends you may and begin the task at hand.

Description             : CROSSING ACHERON is the second level in the INFERNO 
  series.  Having passed through DANTE'S GATE and 
  survived, you now find yourself in a keep on the
  shores of the river Acheron. This is the second 
  leg of the journey in your search for Beatrice. 
  Your guide, Virgil, is nowhere to be found. 
  "He's buggered off!" you think to yourself; but 
  you have no time now to even think: you are
  immediately challenged by several Demons, and in 
  the distance you hear the eerie purring of the 
  Arch-Vile. (Just be sure not to stare at him for 
  too long before you start running.)  As usual, 
  you dispatch what fiends you may and begin the 
  task at hand.

  Your goal?  To get the hell out of this place as
  quickly as possible and find your beloved Beatrice.
  You only hope that she has already passed through
  this hell-hole to a safer haven beyond.  If only
  you could hold her in your arms again, you know
  what you would say:

  "Give me some sugar, Babe."
   
  CROSSING ACHERON (pronounced 'ak eron) is the second
  level in a series that began with DANTE'S GATE. The
  third is VIRGIL'S LEAD. For any of the two or three 
  of you out there who have read Dante Alighieri's 
  THE DIVINE COMEDY -- or even only "Inferno" -- 
  I'm sure you've been able to appreciate the many 
  allusions to this work in DOOM. I have tried to 
  take a tack of my own along the same lines. (I do
  this not only because I think the idea is neat, but
  so that people will think that I'm very clever.)
  I'm not so na‹ve as to expect everyone to rush out
  and get a copy of "Inferno" (I mean, it IS pretty
  tedious stuff, at times), but it's well worth the
  read -- and a little patience is a virtue that is
  often well-rewarded.

  (By the way: Acheron is a river in Hell (basically).
  But don't look for any rivers in here: I tried it
  several different ways and just wasn't convinced.)

  Thanks.  Hope you like it.

Instructions: Put ACHERON2.WAD in your DOOM directory, type
  "doom2 -file acheron2.wad -warp 3 -skill <#>"
  (Or, to play moderately at first, also put the file
  ACHE2.BAT in your DOOM directory and type ACHE2.)
    To play the DEMO, just type DOOM2 -file acheron2.wad,
  sit back, and enjoy the show.
  
Disclaimer: I assume no responsibility for anything of any sort
  in any way, shape, or form--now, then, henceforeward 
  in this life (or the next several) for any screw-ups
  or even minor inconveniences this PWAD causes you,
  your family, your relatives, friends, ancestors,
  associates, employers, pets, neighbors, lovers,
  congressional representatives, nor any other person--
  living, dead, or undead -- that you have or will ever
  have any contact with in even the slightest form.
  This PWAD has been tested and tested ad infinitum, so
  it shouldn't mess with your computer or anything else
  remotely associated with it.  But if it DOES, then
  that's the way the cookie crumbles. Don't come cryin'
  to me.  It must be something YOU did.  If you don't
  like it, lump it. (I ran out of clich‚s.)
