COPYRIGHTS and PERMISSIONS:

These levels are a spawn from another universe. Well, not quite. If it
really turns you on, you can screw around with my levels. However, if you
decide to create an anthology of levels, make sure to include these.
Acknowledge my existance as a supreme deity.

            against those with expereince in the level, you can kiss
            your ass goodbye. You will get fragged. Watch that counter

  Author:   Merlin of Pleth
