Names
White Plume Mountain II (HWHITE2.ZIP)
Description
This is a HERETIC version of TSR's Dungeons & Dragons module: White Plume Mountain recreated by Stephen Woods. To call this a SuperDungeon is no understatement. (I've refereed the module no less than five times! It still gets requested by rpg gamers to this day and blows 'em away every time.) TSR produced about a dozen classic adventures in the late 70's and early 80's and White Plume Mountain was one of the best of the bunch. While other role playing games were striving for more and more realism (most gamers really don't like gobs and gobs of rules), TSR, the creators of Dungeons & Dragons, did just the opposite. Sticking to a simple system (with gobs and gobs of supplements) and a small group of designers/writers/artists, a style emerged that remains a standard for fantasy games, even today. (The Telengard-Wizardry Factor) They gave the adventure-hungry gamers exactly what they wanted: interactive entertainment that was CHEAP, PORTABLE and, above all, PLAYABLE. But I digress... White Plume Mountain was very famous for two or three of its rooms and extremely famous for three of its weapons: "Wave" was a magic trident of some reknown. "Whelm" was a great hammer of which many unbelieveable stories are told. "Blackrazor" was, perhaps, the most infamous of the three, being a great two handed sword of the damnable kind that drinks souls. In this version there are some considerable differences from the original adventure but most of the features are included thanks to Steve's immaculate drafting skills. I merely added a few HERETIC essentials and some spooky areas for those D&D buffs to explore.

Title                   : White Plume Mountain II (HWHITE2.ZIP)

Original Author         : Stephen J. Woods created the original DOOM
                          wad. 

                          This HERETIC conversion is by Rich
                          "Zdim" Carlson. (your humble narrator)

Misc. Author Info       : Steve spent hours getting the DOOM textures
                          right... I did a simple conversion and added
                          a few HERETIC specials and some creepy new areas.
                          I loved Steve's version but immediately saw
                          the need for a HERETIC (or even HEXEN) version.
                          (Hey, it's based on a D&D module, right?)

                          I couldn't, but I did - Sorry - I couldn't
                          resist!) Please play Steve's wad, or I'll
                          feel very guilty. (And Steve... Where the
                          heck are you? I've been trying to get in
                          touch with you for months via email!)

* Construction *

Base                    : based on Steve's WHITE.ZIP DOOM wad (which is,
                          in turn, based on TSR's White Plume Mountain
                          game module... Oh, right. You knew that...)

Editor(s) used          : DEU, BSP and WadAuthor (conversion by DM2CONV)
Known Bugs              : Pentium 100 or better for this version - there
                           are a large number of elements/animations in
                           some areas
                          

* Copyright / Permissions *

Do not distribute this wad via TAPE, FLOPPY, CD, etc., etc., etc.!
Steve would get very mad, too, and I don't need the bad karma.
If you must use this as a base for some other level, please do a HEXEN
conversion. But I wouldn't suggest it as I've already pretty much tweaked
the hell out of this wad, so don't blame me if it corrupts.
