Misc. Author Info       : I have made 4 other wads... if you'd like to get 
                          them or know what they are, just use my MANSION
                          BAT file to load DOOM II with the wad, then quit 
                          out of the game... and read the screen!
                          I created this Mansion wad becuase I like old 
                          houses.  They provide great areas... (Visually and 
                          otherwise).  They also have incredibly awesome 
                          secrets, hopefully you'll agree that this level has 

Your Mission : 

First off, the story begins in the year 1839, in London... 
Westminster to be exact... Alfred Von Helsing was a very respected
Doctor who specialized in the extinction of Vampires. 

Your Great Grandfather Alfred Von Helsing left you his Mansion...

Well, let me explain... Alfred Von Helsing had a beautful daughter, 
but, she was mentally unstable... so he built this Mansion for her to live 
in, and when she died... he vowed to make every Von Helsing relative stay in 
this Mansion... 

So he wrote this into his will, but he died 2 months after he wrote it, 
and left it hiding in a secret place, where no one could find it... 

Years and years went by... then finally a woman in her 50's claimed to 
be the daughter of Alfred Von Helsings first Daughter.  She carried the 
name Von Helsing, but had no other proof besides that...

Well except for you!  She is your mother.  The police officals looked over 
both you and your mothers records, very cautiously... then they found 
dramatic proof they you were indeed Alfred Von Helsings Great Grandson!

...what proof did the police find?  They found Alfred Von Helsings will... 
It was discovered while searching the was brown, book like... 
and had a peace symbol on you and your mother were granted possession
of the VON HELSING MANSION.  Unfortunately, your mother became ill, and 
perished in her sleep... 

Now you live in the Von Helsing Mansion all by yourself...

Everyone in town heard of this tragic tale, and knowing you are the soul heir 
to the Von Helsing Mansion, many people are trying to take your life, and the 
women are trying to marry into the Von Helsing riches! 

You have to stop them!  Yes you...
Already some grotesque people have invaded the Mansion, while you were away.
Now you must use your knowledge of the Mansion to defeat the evil that lurks 

Good Luck!

Additional Information: 

1. Why does this look like a Castle from the outside?

Well, because Alfred Von Helsing purchased King Henry the II's castle, 
after the King had had passed away... not wanting a Castle, but liking the 
outside, he decided to keep the outside they way it was, while completely 
reconstructing the inside.  He created his dream Mansion with many secret 
doors and hallways...

2. Why is the bridge across the moat broken?

Well you may think that was a dastardly move on my part... but in all reality,
the bridge was in great condition until the invasion of the Mansion.
The giant spiders who walk the moat destroyed it so they could move from one
cave to another.
