//////   THE STORY SO FAR...   //////

During the summer of 2011 an enthusiastic and diverse group of doom
mappers decided to work together and create a megawad consisting
entirely of slaughter maps. For six hard months they labored to
complete the project. These brave level designers spent day after day
working away, creating sector upon sector and placing monster upon
monster, in what would become one of the most thoroughly crafted wads
of all time. Their work paid off; by the end of the year they had
constructed a masterpiece which would undoubtedly influence all Doom
wads to come. The project, entitled with the magnificent name
“Slaughterfest 2011”, stood above the usual heap of doom wads as work
of art perfect in every conceivable way.

However, the megawad didn't receive the reception that its crafters
had hoped for. It received no prize at the 2011 Cacowards, a great
disappointment because, like most mappers, the Slaughterfest 2011
designers made their wad mostly for the sake of getting one of the
awards. Most of them then realized that the wad must have been spared
an award because it was simply too good: Slaughterfest's level of
quality was so high that putting on the same platform as Cacoward
winners would be an insult.

Before this issue could be resolved another dilemma emerged: once the
wad was uploaded to the /idgames archive a group of jealous trolls
began giving it negative reviews. One went as far as to call it a
“very worthless ugly megawad”, a statement no sane person would make.
Others gave it 1/5 ratings, tragically bringing the masterpiece's
score down to 3/5, heartbreaking to all the determined mappers who
spent weeks on end making elaborate levels in order to get a 5/5 (as
well as a Cacoward). On top of all this, the /newstuff review for it
was one of the worst in the publication's history. The reviewer not
only refused to classify the wad as the magnum opus which it clearly
is, but she went as far as to state that it “fails to impress” and
that most of the maps are “ridiculously unfair”. While it was obvious
that she was just a troll who probably couldn't even beat E1 on
ITYTD*, her review was a massive insult to the entire Slaughterfest
2011 team, because, just like all other mappers, the only reasons
Slaughterfest 2011's designers made the wad were to get a Cacoward,
get a 5/5 on the /idgames page, and get a favorable /newstuff review.

Despite these setbacks, the Slaughterfest team regrouped in 2012 to
begin work on another megawad with another highly original name:
Slaughterfest 2012. They worked even harder on this one than they had
on its predecessor, and they gave themselves double the amount of
time. However, many of the mappers were reluctant to publicly release
the project, based on the disappointing reception of the first one.
They worried that the wad was be too perfect that it would be
impossible for average lowly doomers to appreciate its quality.
Intense debates occurred within the team over whether the new
masterpiece should be kept private or not. Some argued that the public
didn't deserve to lay eyes upon the wad due to how they treated the
first one. Others argued that not releasing the wad would prevent it
from receiving enough praise to make the project worthwhile. After
weeks of bickering a compromise was finally reached: the megawad would
be released if somebody succeeded in slaughtering all the trolls who
criticized the first project. But who would undertake such a crazy

YOU will!!!

Your mission is to go through 35 ball-bustlingly difficult maps,
killing thousands of trolls who dared speak low of the first
Slaughterfest. You'll travel through a diverse selection of
environments, including derelict hospitals, sprawling cities, imposing
castles, and generic abstract zones. You'll face off against hordes of
angry trolls (who coincidently look just like doom monsters) within
epic blood-splattered arenas. The chances of survival are low, but if
you're successful, the Slaughterfest team will be able to get all the
praise, Cacowards, chicks, fame, cash, power, etc., that they

//////   MAP INFO   //////

MAP01    - Exodus
Author   - cannonball/Ribbiks/j4rio
Music    - "Dark Groove" by Alexander Brandon from Jazz Jackrabbit 2
Comments - This map I designed specifically really for the first map of
           this wad. Starting simple but with enough threat, the
           difficulty increasing until you reach a slaughter climax.
           I think this map went ok. Special credits to Ribbiks and
           j4rio for tuning this map up to the current level it is.
           I went AWOL for a week without being sure of regaining
           internet access so good job there :)

MAP02    - Cashews
Author   - Death Egg
Music    - "Upon the Grave of Guilt" by Falconer
Comments - A map that took quite a few revisions before it wasn't a pile
           of shit, and even then took some more adjusting by another
           member before it was finally actually decent. This was
           originally meant to be the continuation of what I was
           planning on doing in Mixed Nuts at the end of Slaughterfest
           2011, but I realized that map was pretty awful, and so was
           the map this was becoming, so I revamped the layout into what
           it eventually became.

MAP03    - Island of Mystery
Author   - Ribbiks
Music    - MegamanX4 Web-Spider Stage
Comments - A green jungle/wood island of monsters! This was based on some
           ideas I sketched out during lecture one day, and the map was
           completed pretty much in one sitting.

MAP04    - Pure Hate
Author   - darkreaver
Comments - Kind of small and cramped map, but UV-maxing turned out quite
           OK. Quick and easy.

MAP05    - Fortress of Damnation
Author   - cannonball
Music    - "Bergschrund" by James Paddock
Comments - This was the last map I made for this wad. It's pretty quick and
           easy with a similar style to map01 if a little more difficult.
           I liked using the quake textures and this is prevalent
           throughout my maps here.

MAP08    - Tingsryd
Author   - dannebubinga
Music    - Some halloween midi. credit goes to no one since it sucks.
Comments - Tingsryd is a village in the south of Sweden, not far from where
           I was born. It's known for it's hockey team "Tingsryd Allmänna
           Idrottsförening" (TAIF) which has crazy redneck fans who once
           threw a dead cat on the ice after the referee didn't judge in
           TAIF's favour. They also have "Börjes". A big store where you
           can buy alot of cheap stuff. It's like wall-mart, but less
           commercial and just more redneck. They have a well known
           caféteria that serves coffee and a "räkmacka" for only 20:-
           (~3$)!! The did however raise the price when we removed the
           "50öre-coin", so a coffe that used to cost 1,50kr was increased
           to 2kr (~1,5 cents). The old people who always used to drink
           coffee at Börjes RAGED! 
           Welcome to Tingsryd.

MAP09    - Core Annihilation
Author   - cannonball
Music    - "Sigma Stage 1" from Mega Man X
Comments - Fast paced map with plenty of plasma and rockets for the start.
           I tried to make the map as frenetic as possible, a lot of edits
           later and hopefully this does the trick.

MAP10    - Total Recall
Author   - cannonball
Music    - TNT's Daedalus (map02 music)
Comments - A remix of GrainOfSalt's maps from Sf2011, short and violent,
           this is a little less brutal than the GOS maps due to imps
           replacing hellknights as the main opposition on the floor.

MAP11    - Warborn
Author   - Rayzik
Music    - Warborn, Black Dahlia Murder
Comments - A throwback map with the idea of Plutonia's MAP32.

MAP12    - Damnation
Author   - darkreaver
Comments - The beginning areas of this map isnt exactly slaughtermap'ish,
           but there are some hordes later on. dobugabumaru made some
           finishing edits to the map, so thanks to him!

MAP13    - Unleash the Fire
Author   - Rayzik
Music    - D_e3m8, original doom
Comments - A hellish romp through a lava tube. Totally original

MAP14    - Damned Legion
Author   - Archi
Music    - Cataclysmic Impact by Jimmy91, pl2 map30
Comments - inspired by phml's map26 from sf11. Done in about 4 days.
           bugfixes by j4rio and dannebubinga.

MAP15    - Doomherolandia
Author   - GRB/j4rio/dobugabumaru

MAP17    - Electric Wizard
Author   - Ribbiks
Music    - Chrono Trigger Undersea Palace
Comments - First slaughter-type map I've ever made. relatively low monster
           count, and lots of green!

MAP18    - Last Cup of Sorrow
Author   - Bloodite Krypto
Comments - N/A

MAP19    - Split Wide Open
Author   - TimeOfDeath
Comments - Named after the Cannibal Corpse song. I tried to make a weird
           ugly 90's style map. It was fun.

MAP20    - True Grit
Author   - cannonball
Music    - State of Rage by Maxime Tondreau
Comments - This was the second map I ever made (serious), this went under
           a major facelift since it's first incantation, and then j4rio
           got his claws into it and finally this happened. Hopefully it
           is a good episode ender.

MAP21    - Walk With Me in Hell
Author   - Rayzik
Music    - Walk With Me In Hell, Lamb of God
Comments - Open map with many monsters. Came to me in a dream

MAP22    - Royale Arena
Author   - cannonball
Music    - Fortress of Doom (last Duel) from Lufia 
Comments - This map was taken from a boom compatible megawad I was making
           but due to laziness that wad looks unlikely to come to fruition.
           This map is heavily inspired by Map28 of Hell Revealed and only
           uses top tier monsters. Add some non-linearity in the mix and
           there you go. I like this map a lot and uses a lot of intereting
           architecture (rare for me haha)

MAP23    - Castle Lava
Author   - TimeOfDeath
Comments - I started making this for one of GRB's speedmapping sessions,
           but ended up spending a bit more time on it. The theme was a
           castle surrounded by lava, duh.

MAP29    - Degrassi
Author   - TimeOfDeath
Music    - by Wolf Kraft (Eli Litwin)
Comments - I started making this a while ago but left it for a while. Then
           I picked it back up again to submit it to CC4 before the
           deadline. Then it didn't really fit in with CC4 so I submitted
           it to SF. The building in the south was a deathmatch map I made
           for one of the 32in24s and was inspired by the mansion in the
           game Undying. The area in the south-east part of the map was a
           separate map I started earlier and then pasted it into degrassi.

MAP30    - Anathema
Author   - Ribbiks
Music    - Blut Aus Nord "Epitome 2"
Comments - Probably about 200 hours or so constructing and playtesting this
           elaborate beast. The theme is mostly a sort of abstract
           wood/metal/hell base, with a twinge of gothic thrown in. There
           are only ~8k monsters on UV so it's not quite as ridiculous as
           the finale of sf2011, but I was aiming for diversity, a larger
           number of encounters usually with a couple hundred monsters a
           piece. The difficulty is very high overall, largest challenge
           being the sheer magnitude of the map. If anyone manages to max
           this I anticipate the run will be between 1.5 to 2 hours, a long
           time to keep up a high level of play :). A little luck doesn't
           hurt in a few rooms, but with the right strategy there should
           be more than enough health/ammo/secret-goodies to reliably
           complete the map. Good Luck! Also a big thanks to j4 for testing
           nearly every version as it came along, his gameplay suggestions
           and bug-finding were helpful in balancing and polishing the map.

MAP31    - sworf
Author   - Sir Gggmorkian Bellend the 3rd
Music    - Please supply yore own farts and+ burps.
Comments - This is a map about the lice that have infested my nipples.

MAP32    - Brookhaven Hospital
Author   - TimeOfDeath
Comments - This is a remake of the Brookhaven Hospital from the game Silent
           Hill 2. I had the game playing on my tv while making the map.

MAP33    - Boom Town
Author   - Eli "ProcessingControl" Cohen
Music    - Gothic Deathmatch II Map 13. Probably by Mark Klem
Comments - This is not only my first slaughtermap, but also a 2 hour
           speedmap. As you'd expect, it's nothing groundbreaking or
           particularly memorable, but it at least provides a few minutes
           of decent action. I was originally planning to improve the
           visuals, but I ran out of time, leaving the map a big ugly box.
           Thanks to Phml for improving the gameplay.
