Description             : GROVE- THE STORY CONTINUES (...from where?)-
In your garden, you can sometimes see an 
  angry looking fat dude steal your mushrooms. He's 
  Smugla. Whenever he takes them, he leaps into a deep 
  hole in the floor like a rabbit. You've never 
  catched him. One day you think "Gee- I wonder why 
  he lives in the ground?" So one day, taking your 
  pistol to blow that mushroom stealer to bits, you 
  jump down the hole. "Lets see how he enjoys my 
  mushrooms now!"... Whatever that means. You hit the
  bottom of the hole, and you see the hole continue
  horizontally down. So you go down it, and hit a 
  dead end. But then, you look up, and see another 
  hole out "ha HA!" you retort. You climb out the 
  hole, and look around- "Umm... where the hell am 
  I?" You say, as you see the red skied, gold stared, 
  tree covered, 7 frame per second frame rate world 
  of Grove. You get out of the hole, and see Smugla's
  house infront of you, with HIS mushroom garden, 
  which are really your mushrooms that he stole. You 
  might as well take them. They are yours- even if it 
  would anger him. Where is he anyway?

There is a map in his house, showing
  his X on it. Hmm. I wonder why he wants to go 
  there? Well, he IS a trans-galactical mushroom 
  stealer - maybe its a huge mushroom grove? or maybe 
  an opportunity to get other mushrooms from other 
  dimensions? Who knows. Do you? You do don't you- 
  don't lie. Tell me- TELL ME!! 

  END OF STUPID STORY
  
  
  P.S- Sorry about all those trees. Its a relatively
  small level anyway. You just have to be observant 
  at times and a good shooter. The ammo can be pretty
  tight at times I guess. You'd probably just IDDQD, 
  IDKFA it to the end won't you. Tsk tsk. 

Additional Credits to   : Whoever it is who owns the images of the mushroom, 
 crystal, hand and various trees and the backgrounds
 for the titles that I used. All the other graphics 
 I did.

Known Bugs              : Oh god yes. Where do i begin- 
  *I had a lot of bugs and crashes when making this
  wad. I hope its still alright, I didn't fully play
  it when I completed the thing, so there could still
  be stuff-ups. I hope it actually plays at least.
  * The room that 
  'transforms' into a tech room should have its floor
  change to that SHAWN type texture (flat32 I think).
  though it doesn't work, and stays on the blue 
  texture. In fact, none of the floor textures 
  in that room change. The whole thing only seems to 
  work in Edge. I've given up trying to fix it- doesn't
  really matter anyway I guess *tear rolls down my 
  eye as I wish it could work* Still it might work 
  on some other version of the other doom engines, 
  but not on the ones I have.
  *Do not use Boom- It still works on it, sure, but
  all the monsters in the level can hear when you 
  cap off a single shot. This is bullshit and isn't
  supposed to happen. At least, this happens on my 
  version of Boom, there may be later versions that 
  it might work correctly on.
  *The textures of the back of the various sign posts
   around the level are way off in some engines, like
  Boom or Edge. In Zdoom it looks correct. Go use 
  Zdoom.
  *When I try to use Boom, I get like 149 column 
  errors. What columns? Did I put columns in the 
       level? So is that it- It won't work because I 
  didn't put any columns in the level? What a 
  picky interior-decorating engine. Na- but seriously,
  its some dumb texture problem, that only happens in 
  Boom from what I've tried. Use Zdoom.
  *When you enter that house at the beginning of the
  level, your hard drive might get terminally 
  corrupted. I know, I know. It sounds bad. I've had 
  three hard drives get corrupted and have never 
  worked since. Theres about a one in three chance of 
  it not corrupting though, so you have a chance. So
  before entering it, utter a short prayer or have 
  the good book near you. Remember 'The penetant man
  may pass, the penetant man may pass...'
  *Heres a weird one- when you're about to enter the 
  forest part, your monitor may implode and create a 
  sort of weak black hole, sucking in your pieces of 
  papers and stuff from your table. This is due to 
  linedef #2334, and I can't really fix it sorry.

May Not Run With...     : the original Doom2, and Boom

P.S those last two Known Bugs are a lie. No seriously, I was just kidding.
You can put your prayer book down now. All the other Known Bugs are real 
though.
