Deathmatch Fava, distributed as 01dmfava.zip

Introduction
============

In the summer of '95, I released an episode replacement for
the original DOOM entitled Fava Beans (originally distributed as 
01fava.zip).  To my surprise, that modest assemblage of levels 
received high acclaim from WAD authors and DOOM fanatics from around
the world.  Well, perhaps the levels weren't modest.  They actually
boasted quality and design elements paralleled only by Id's originals.
The goal all along was to create levels with the same feel and
complexity found in Knee Deep In the Dead, while still giving
everything a fresh, unique appeal.  From the overwhelming positive
feedback I've received over the years, I think it's safe to say that
I was successful in doing what I had intended.


Description
===========

Deathmatch Fava is a mini-episode composed of four levels from
Fava Beans, remastered to take advantage of Legacy DOOM enhancements.
There are no monsters - these levels are purely for deathmatch.

Note: The Matrix is a DOOM2 replacement level that was designed by
Ben Gates (he also designed Charon Lab, e1m5 of Fava Beans [e1m4 of
Deathmatch Fava]).  The links to Hangar 18 and Shadows of Darkness
are pre-Fava DOOM2 versions - originally I did not think that I
would ever design enough levels to compile an entire episode, so I
distributed everything on an individual basis.

Level Names
===========

The names are completely arbitrary.  For example, "Gaspra Armory."
Gaspra is an asteroid.  Asteroids are typically very small.  So small
and lacking mass, that they are held together by electrostatic forces,
not gravitational.  Therefore, the surface would be very loosely packed,
and you'd probably have a difficult time finding firm ground to stand,
much less walk on.  Further, an athletic run and jump (well, if you
could perform such an act given the surface conditions) could quite
possibly exceed the escape velocity. All things considered, it is
unlikely that you'd find any kind of an Armory on Gaspra.  This also
holds true for the Martian satellite Phobos (remember Phobos Lab in the
original DOOM?).  But, it's a game, so forget I said anything.
