The Dark Tower
Description
Well, um, I think the title sums it up right? ;) Seriously, the level is fairly simple (like most of my levels) consisting of an outside playing field and a central tower with no interior lighting that contains the more powerful weapons. The most power- ful weapon (depending on the skill level) is positioned on one high end of the arena, which is reachable by a risky teleport on the opposite side of the arena.

Misc. Author Info       : An all-around Doom/Global Wars nut!
                          Love kicking back and listening to L.A.'s very
                          own Loveline show on the world famous KROQ.
                          Mail me with any info on who this bigfoot a**hole
                          is! (you hafta listen to the show to know who
                          this f00l is...)

                          Author of the short-lived Bacardi series. Thanks
                          to all the people who sent tons of info on the
                          five levels. I really appreciated it. I have now
                          switched to releasing my levels as I construct
                          them, to quicker satisfy all you doomers with the
                          insatiable hunger for really good deathmatch levels.

                          I currently reside in a Los Angeles suburb and
                          am attending a nearby state university for my under-
                          grad studies. Well, enough about me. Onto the LEVEL!

* Closing Notes *

This level implements the use of skill levels. The weapons appear as follows:

 + Skill 1/2: Shotgun, and some ammo at startup
              Super shotgun, and chaingun in the tower
              Rocket launcher on southern "pedestal"

 + Skill 3:   Shotgun and Super shotgun and a little ammo upon startup
              Chaingun and rocket launcher in the tower
              Plasma gun on "pedestal"

 + Skill 4/5: Shotgun, chaingun, and super shotgun available at start
              Rocket launcher and plasma gun in tower
              BFG 9000 on the "pedestal"

The exit contains a RESET switch ONLY! I decided that much alike MrBlonde's
EXCELLENT deathmatch levels, I knew the player would load this level to play
this level ONLY. The music I inserted keeps the adrenalin pumping. I hate
who get fragged the twice get frustrated and decide to leave the level for
another non-deathmatch level and thusly bomb out. So I included two "niches"
on each side of the exit switch to sneak upon a wussy enemy trying to leave
a level too early! ;)

The sky texture I just had to include! It's the best one out there TRUST ME!
The blue storm sky from heretic I think is much overused now, and heck, I dec-
ided to act on my individuality. I hope you have many a good fragging time on
this level. Send me e-mail's telling me whether or not you like this level,
and what could be done to improve this level, or any suggestions for a new
level.

"As always, Mahalo."
