Description                  : This map was originally built for Doomworlds speedmapping contest,
                               base theme. A WadAuthor error 70 minutes into the contest deleted the map.
                               Since I was pretty happy with how the map had progressed to that point,
                               I rebuilt the map from memory, plus added a lot more. However, I never submitted
                               the map to Doomworld for the contest since I was way to late. The map, I believe,
                               still rates as being considered small. Depending on your style of play and skill,
                               it should take you about 10 to 20 minutes to finish.

                               My aim was to have the finished map have a clean uncluttered look and feel to it.
                               I tried to work in enough detail to make the overall appearance look interesting.
                               I'm not entirely happy with the flow of combat in some areas, but it's close enough,
                               as I was making myself crazy constantly tinkering with the map. I hope you enjoy.

Pay attention to blinking lights

All 3 keys are used and needed

The map is small and tight. You will die. Often.

Once you learn the map and the places to fight from, it becomes a piece of cake.

No BFG. All other weapons are scattered about.

No Cyber, Mastermind, PE, Archvile, Mancubus or Aracnotrons. I was tempted to slip an Archie in, but no.

A smart cautious player will end with mucho health and ammo

That's it. What? You expected a walk-thru? Bwahahahahahaha!!!
