Names
Firetop Mountain version 2
Description
The idea for the map is based off of those old Fighting Fantasy books where you used dice and a pencil. It gets its name from the first book, The Warlock of Firetop Mountain. Back in the mid to late 90s I sketched out the map as described in the book and decided to make a Doom level based on it. The floor plan I sketched is long lost, so apart from the beginning of inside the mountain, the rest has been newly created from scratch.

Description             : The idea for the map is based off of those old Fighting Fantasy books where you used       dice and a pencil. It gets its name from the first book, The Warlock of Firetop 
  Mountain. Back in the mid to late 90s I sketched out the map as described in the book
  and decided to make a Doom level based on it. The floor plan I sketched is long lost, so apart   from the beginning of inside the mountain, the rest has been newly created from scratch.


Story: Zagor, the Warlock of Firetop Mountain has risen again, this time drawing on
  the Doom Demons to power his resurrection. His spiritual being of fire & brimstone
  has been infused into the physical body of an Archvile... needless to say he is 
  now quite a formidable foe.

  It's up to you, you Doomed Guy, to cut a bloody swathe through his bloodthirsty
  demonic hordes and once and for all slay Zagor, The Warlock of Firetop Mountain.


Additional Credits to   : The usual: id, Randy & Graf, CodeImp & MaxEd for GZ/DoomBuilder
  SlumpEd, Slade 3, and the Realm667 Bestiary.

  A big, BIG, shout out and mad props to Rex Claussen whose advice and help kept me
  motivated to improve the project. Also, Rex did the preliminary work on sloping the
  outside of the mountain which really inspired me to take it further, and he provided
  the rock texture as well... what a top bloke!

  Eriance for Decorate questions on the Warlock/Diabloist

  Enjay and his thread on EndSequence Cast stuff on the ZDoom forums.

Resources used: Main mountain rock texture provided by Rex Claussen.
  
  Some textures procured from the Realm667 texture packs of Blood, Witchaven, Duke 3D,
  5th Episode, and Plutonia/TNT; and a couple others which I can't pinpoint. There             are some textures & images that I've procured from Google Images, and some                          textures, images and graphics created and modified by myself.

  The Warlock is from the Bestiary on Realm667 and is based on the Diabloist created by
  Eriance.

  Skybox from 3D Ely Visions, who have a free skybox site which is worth checking out.

  Music created by myself and recorded through the condenser mic on an old dirty
  cassette recorder in a haze in 2002 & 2005.

* Construction *

Base                    : Modified the my Firetop Mountain, which was about 10% of what you see here
  when I first started this project in March 1997. Second modification on the
  original FTOPMTN.WAD which I released in May 2012.
Build Time              : 100 hours or so over 5-6 months. 
  I'm slow and my mapping sessions aren't very long, but frequent ;)
Editor(s) used          : GZDoomBuilder v1.12, Slade 3, Paint.net, Audacity v1.3beta
  Doom Builder v2.1.0.1356, SlumpEd v0.7
  Originally used Deu 5.21 and BSP v1.1TC in 1997
Known Bugs              : Negligible in GZDoom, for normal ZDoom see below
May Not Run With...     : ZDoom, other source ports. 

  Doesn't run well on standard ZDoom. There are some graphic glitches and some
  HOM-like effects present.
