Well, to put it simply I was inspired by a sprite set that my friend Chronoteeth sent me one day.
That set had Strife HUD arms graphics and an overall futuristic look, so I thought about creating
a modification that would have exploited such great resources in a DOOM context. I also took this
opportunity to focus on a minimal arsenal design (loosely based on the HeXen formula),
that would have exploited all ammunition types and weapon canons typical of the DOOM games, by
condensing them in very few weapons. A rich gore and death system complements the gameplay.

   This special combat kit mainly consists of a shock-capable biomagnetic handheld device (Tazer-)
   that is completed by an extremely light, synthetic-sapphire hardened blade (-Fang).
   The Tazer exploits its internal auto-recharging battery to deliver electrical bursts that shock
   any flesh or biomechanical target for a few seconds, rendering it paralyzed and harmless. Such
   target can then be quickly injured / finished with the Fang.
   Avoid stressing the Tazer too frequently with repeated discharges; should the battery fail to
   sufficiently recharge in time for the next attack, a backburst shall be experienced by the wielder
   with lesser damage.
   And if you stumble across a Berserk pack, don't underestimate the power of your fang...

   Primary Fire)   deliver a reverse slash/direct poke to a foe in proximity.
   Secondary Fire) send a single shocking discharge to a nearby opponent.

   This weapon acts as the new standard-issued firearm granted to Space Amazons as replacement
   for the old semiautomatic pistol. 'Unicorn' is a high-precision, efficient assault rifle
   that exploits single 11mm rounds much better than its 'Manticore' (*) cousin (the damage ratio
   is grossly doubled). On top of this, the rifle sports an additional mini acid tank that
   can be refilled with the contents of a single gyroscopic grenade (*), and allows up to four
   acid streak alternate attacks before discharging completely!

   (*): see subsequent weapon descriptions

   Primary Fire)   fire one single round (the weapon supports trigger-speed fire).
   Secondary Fire) emit a single acid gas streak.

   'Phoenix' is a new concept weapon developed by UAC engineers, in an attempt to better exploit
   the auto-rechargeable battery that most of their soldiers need to carry for their tazers anyway.
   Its main purpose is that of a slight damage / high rate stunner device that can help keeping
   large demon groups at bay, while planning a better strategy to escape or defeat them - all
   without sacrificing ammo.
   With a full power supply, the weapon is even capable of delivering a spectacular top-tier attack:
   a globe of pure electrical charge that after a slow hum shall start discharging in all directions
   with blue lightning - it needs to be seen.
   But don't forget - if you run out of power, you'll suffer the same consequences as in the case
   of TazerFang.

   Primary Fire)   deliver quick bursts of electricity that stun and slowly kill enemies.
   Secondary Fire) quickly charge and hurl a power accumulation... Then take cover!

   'Hydra' is the new design of standard-issue shotguns assigned to UAC operatives. A very capable
   pump-action shotgun implementation that sports smaller rearm times, but most of all,
   and extended shell chamber. This latter feature allows to load up to three shells in a row
   to be all fired at once, augmenting the versatility of this weapon and making it a de-facto
   singlehanded replacement for the older pump-action/double-barreled pair.

   Primary Fire)   if 1..3 shells loaded, fire all loaded shells at once;
                   if 0    shells loaded, pump one shell into the chamber - if available.
   Secondary Fire) pump one shell into the chamber - if available. Also, discharge
                   one exhausted shell casing from the chamber (if any still present).

  %$%&#!*$%&#!*$%&#!*$%&#!*$%&#!*$%&#!*$%&#!

   Who said that Nordenfelt-style guns were dead? 'Manticore' proves exactly the opposite: a modern,
   variable-asset tri-barreled machinegun that fires a random combination of its three barrels according
   to probabilistic overheating management circuitry. And if it wasn't enough, the weapon also mounts
   an underneath missile launcher that propels special 'Torpedo' missiles: these can detect the proximity
   of over/underlying surfaces and thrust themselves accordingly, to avoid premature collisions.

   Primary Fire)   Fire one machinegun round:
                   - first round    is more accurate and always consumes one bullet;
                   - ensuing rounds are less accurate and consume up to three bullets each.
   Secondary Fire) Fire one Torpedo missile.

  %$%&#!*$%&#!*$%&#!*$%&#!*$%&#!*$%&#!*$%&#!

   Although Torpedo missiles are more than handy when dealing with most 'explosive' situations,
   sometimes they don't offer the sheer power needed to deliver the carnage. This is where
   'Basilisk' comes into play: a powerful rotor-based grenade launcher that propels special
   'Gyroscopic Gas' grenades. These babies are unpredictable and dangerous, since they conserve their
   momentum a lot with every rebound, and bounce against foes while dealing damage on them a lot of
   times before deflagrating. Heck, you can finally play pinball with 'em! >-D
   But in case you want a precise timing for the grenade to explode, press the alternate trigger
   and the grenade will explode immediately, leaving around a cloud of toxic gas that shall literally
   liquefy the weakest creatures.

   Primary Fire)   lob one gyroscopic gas grenade, that shall exhaust on a time limit.
   Secondary Fire) remotely dispatch an immediate deflagration command to all deployed grenades.

   Plasma has always been the preferred fuel for dealing with the largest hellspawn; however,
   traditional weaponry such as the dedicated Rifle or BFG-9000 always consumed and propelled this
   powerful matter in very different ways - each one sporting its peculiar purpose anyway.
   The new 'Gryphon' warfare module finally combines the firing modes of both weapons and
   enhances them to grant unrivaled power: the old Rifle plasma stream is now twice as fast,
   and two times powerful - only at the cost of a small warmup / cooldown delay.
   The trace-spreading attack now consumes half the power and deals half the damage, but also
   gains extreme speed - and multiple rounds can be stringed together very effectively.

   Primary Fire)   if <BOLT MODE> selected, starts chargeup and then fire plasma in a continuous,
                                            sped-up stream;
                   if <WAVE MODE> selected, hurl a fast, small-sized plasma wave immediately,
                                            and then promptly cool down.
   Secondary Fire) toggle between <BOLT MODE> (blue light) and <WAVE MODE> (green light).

   The following auxiliary devices might be found throughout levels:

   MECHSUIT: a robustly-shielded vest-like robot uniform for our Amazon, whose special titanium-
             based plating absorbs a good fraction of any suffered damage. The mech normally
             comes equipped with a lefthand grenade launcher that sustains high fire rates,
             and a righthand heatseeker pod that can be directed towards the largest targets.
             But beware: when riding the robot, movement speed is slightly reduced and if
             its shields get completely overcome, chances are that you can die inside the machine.
             Always keep an eye on the "eject" button...

   INVICTA SYMBOL: a special protection module working on the principles of radial shielding,
                   it gets activated immediately at pickup, and grants all the following improvements
                   at once, for a total of 20 seconds:
                   - 'active shielding' that partially hides the activator, and eludes the
                                        heat-seeking ability of hostile projectiles;
                   - 'repulsion'        that gives the wielder a distorted appearance and
                                        keeps most foes at a safe distance;
                   - 'tanking'          that implements a safe damage-canceling barrier around
                                        the possessor, rendering him/her totally immune to damage.

   PROXIMITY RADAR: a special functionality tied to her latest-generation space suit, she owns it
                    right from the start: an indicator of moving / living beings in the near
                    surroundings, this radar can prove crucial in supporting certain raids or
                    ambushes to monsters around corners or behind walls.

   Sometimes the Amazon might encounter one of her fellow marines, trapped as hostage of the
   Netherworld forces. Luckily for her (but mostly for him!) a few TazerFang shocks should be enough
   to free prisoners like these - if they are helped in time before any hellspawn around is able to finish
   them, they might give a good hand in return...








Footnotes:

(1) The suggested commandline for launching the modification is the following one
    (assumes that the modification has been decompressed in subdirectory 'RSL' of your (G)ZDOOM directory):

    (g)zdoom.exe -iwad <IWAD_PATH>\<IWAD_FILE> -file <CUSTOM_LEVEL_PATHNAME> RSL\rslamaze.pk3

    (if under GZDOOM, add option '+gl_nogl 1' to disable hardware rendering)

     >>> enables Sheila Doe,   T H E   S P A C E   A M A Z O N   V 2   (full arsenal of 7 weapons)

(2) Do not forget to bind a key for MechSuit-ejection under 'Options > Customize Controls'
    in (G)ZDOOM.

(3) Similarly, you might want to bind a key to toggle automatic 'Hydra' rearming after fire, always
    under 'Options > Customize Controls' in (G)ZDOOM.

(4) If the provided special effects happen to excessively tax your system resources,
    use the following commandline to enable a lighter explosive barrel / teleportation effect /
    gore system in place of the default ones:

    (g)zdoom.exe -iwad <IWAD_PATH>\<IWAD_FILE> -file <CUSTOM_LEVEL_PATHNAME> RSL\rslamaze.pk3
     RSL\FXTamer\rslamaze-FXTamer.wad

(5) If a reduced set without the starting 'Unicorn' rifle is preferred, extract 'rslabase.wad' and 'rslamaze.wad'
    from the .PK3 package and adopt the following commandline:

    (g)zdoom.exe -iwad <IWAD_PATH>\<IWAD_FILE> -file <CUSTOM_LEVEL_PATHNAME> RSL\rslabase.wad RSL\rslamaze.wad

     >>> enables Constance/Anna Lingus,   T H E   S P A C E   O P E R A T I V E   (arsenal of 6 weapons)
              or Tomaza Turbado,          T H E   S P A C E   P I R A T E S S     (faster and fragile)

(6) If the base set only is to be used together with its own coordinated HUD sprites,
    extract 'rslabase.wad' from the .PK3 package and adopt the following commandline:

    (g)zdoom.exe -iwad <IWAD_PATH>\<IWAD_FILE> -file <CUSTOM_LEVEL_PATHNAME> RSL\rslabase.wad

     >>> enables Peta Röthen-Köhl,   T H E   S P A C E   V A L K Y R I E   (arsenal minimally reduced to 4 weapons)
              or Maria Tihocan,      T H E   S P A C E   H U N T R E S S   (slower and resilient)

(7) To obtain the complete set of weapons and/or carriable items for quicktesting
    without breaking the weapon set at your disposal, type 'rsl' in the console.

(8) The modification is compatible with the following IWADs: The Ultimate DOOM, DOOM 2, Final DOOM.
