This is my first stab at creating a deathmatch wad (or any wad) for Doom II.
By all means, criticize away.  After playing countless hours and countless
other wads, I felt I had a pretty good idea of what makes a successful 
deathmatch wad.  Most people I've played appreciate a small, well designed 
level with a high encounter rate.  However, they *don't* appreciate numerous 
respawn frag possibilities common with Maps 1 and 7 of the original 
doom2.wad.  Using these criterion as guidelines, I proceeded with the design 
of FUEHRER.WAD.  

As for those who haven't tried creating a wad of his or her own, I'd
recommend trying.  After hours of thought, learning the editor, and texture
alignment (did the best I could), I can now appreciate what wad authors go 
through to bring us more variety and excitement to our deathmatch games.
Please keep it up.

In the future, I may try to build yet another deathmatch wad.  While designing
this current one, many new ideas came flooding into my brain all at once.  I
hope I can remember some of them.  Oh well..enough of my babbling.  DOOM ON!!
