Description             :

    You wake up in your UAC bootcamp, with your fellow marines. You're the
first one up. That is unsettling. Most marines sleep like a cat, you don't,
you're always up last, the last to get some grub, the last to be chosen for
basketball teams.  Strangely enough, you are up first... it's only two in
the morning.. yet you sense something is happening, something bad...
    Later that morning, about ten, nobody is up.  You walk to the gates of
the bootcamp and look outside.  A newspaper. You pick it up and, in horror,
read the front page-
        "MARINES AT IO ARE DEAD, MONSTER FORCES MOVE TOWARDS DEIMOS, PHOBOS,
AND CALLISTO"
    That can't be right, you think. You're on Io right now!
    Quickly, you run into you cabin and discover the hideous truth.
The bootcamp members aren't sleeping. They're dead.
    Your expression turns blank. You're the only survivor. You mutter to
yourself, "I guess being last isn't always that bad."
    You can't even smile with that remark.  The demons must have killed off
all marines at Io, missing you. With the weapons at the base, not to mention
the high-tech machinery that the government of the United States put out, they
could already be out of this solar system, treking unknown distances far beyond
veiw of the naked eye, or even the hubble telescope. They could be out of this
galaxy by now.
    A shiver runs through you. You are isolated on a deserted moon, no humans,
no food, no water, no machinery.
    Wait. Machinery. You notice that the garage door for the equipment room
hasn't been opened. You lift it up and...
    Yes! All the monsters left for you was a pistol, a knuckle-duster, 50
bullets, and a one-use teleport device. Good enough. However, stepping on the
platform, you notice this is already set for a certain area, and you can't
change it. Oh, well. Better to die in honor than to live in cowardness.
    The landing place is set for Callisto, a moon of Jupiter. The icy planet
shouldn't be too hard.
    With a click of a button, you land in a teleporter pad, looking towards
a marble face with a pentagram on the floor, and a shotgun nearby.
    Oh, no.
    The demons are here.

    Easy and small. Your mission is to go through the rock mines, grab the key,
go through the storage area, get the other key, and make a break for the larger
area of the storage bay.

DIFFICULTY: easy                                    SIZE: small
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A distant UAC supply outpost overrun by demons, blah, blah, blah.....
(does anyone really care)

MISSION 06: Area 32                                 AUTHOR: Andy Olson
DIFFICULTY: medium                                  SIZE: medium
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You ?and your buddies? are sent to a secret alien base built into a crater in
the middle of Io, where it is rumored that they are experimenting on humans.
You mission is to kill every last one of the dirty bastards and their tortured
victims. Be warned, however, that the former humans have been brain washed, and
will fight to the death for their evil masters. Since the cave you entered
from has collapsed, you will have to find the teleportation pad deep within
the complex.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MISSION 07: Time Gate 3                             AUTHOR: Michael Reid
DIFFICULTY: hard                                    SIZE: long
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    True to its name (though not as realistic as its prequels), TG3 lets you
choose five different eras of time to go through. The choices are: metal,
brick, mideavel(sp?), brown/stone, and wood.  You need to access 4 of them, the
fifth is just for a major health boost. :)  Also, there is a very hard cyber-
fight in one of the parts, find it yourself then enjoy >:)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MISSION 08: Ends of the Earth                       AUTHOR: Michael Reid
DIFFICULTY: hard                                    SIZE: long
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    You need all three keycards to get out of this mission.  There are three
places you must warp to in order to get all three keycards, the last is the
exit. This one is hard because of it's low ammo. As well as its devious tricks
and traps.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MISSION 09: More Barrels Of Fun                     AUTHOR: Simon Russel
DIFFICULTY: medium-hard                             SIZE: long
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A sequel of sorts to my favorite Doom2 level.  But, for a level with over 280
sectors, it isn't very long.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MISSION 10: Research Lab                            AUTHOR: Roger Moraga
DIFFICULTY: medium                                  SIZE: medium

MISSION 11: UAC Archology Dome                      AUTHOR: Michael Reid
DIFFICULTY: medium                                  SIZE: medium
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A very fun level. You've invaded the UAC dome, and now you have to get out
before the demons kill you. Um, that's it.  Watch for the exciting super battle
with the revenants - that's what makes this level a medium and not an easy.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MISSION 12: Warp Zone                               AUTHOR: Roger Moraga
