* Misc. Information about level *

I have tried to keep this level interesting while keeping it compact
so that it is good for single player and muli-player games.  I've found
that a lot of good single player levels are too spread out for deathmatch
games and you spend most of your time trying to find anyone to FRAG.  All
the items necessary to finish the level are present, so don't try and tell
me otherwise.  The level has been significantly play tested and there seem
to be no bugs.

* Key tips *

There are usually two ways out of places.
Things are not always what they seem.
Use your map - sometimes it can be helpful.
Preserve your ammunition.

* Prolog *

Life has been hectic for the six months since you returned from your
venture into the jaws of Satan.  You were given a heros welcome on 
your return to Earth, although your sudden appearance in the middle
of the busy Y59 interstate at peak hour caused a few minor headaches.

Some wierd computer software company even created a game about your
exploits in deep space! - everything went wild.  Finally it was 
starting to die down, especially since you moved house ten times just
to get away from the crank callers, and the people looking for you to
autograph their favourite gun.

Your mind is off on some other track when you are suddenly snapped back
to reality by a knock on your front door.  Great, you think, probably 
abother crank come to call.  You walk up to the door and peer through the
peep hole, only to see there is no-one there.  You open the door to see 
if you can catch a glimpse of the brat that knocked on your door, give
him a piece of the action when you hit the Bezerk packs!  Opening the 
door you are suprised to find an old man standing in front of you.

"Yes", you ask, "can I do something for you?"

"I am Lucifer" the old man croaks.

"Yeah, and I'm Madonna's right buttock, go away old man."

"You dare to mock the Master of Hell!  Hold your tongue fool, or you will
 be holding it."

"Look, I appreciate that you have probably seen my face on TV, and that you
 think you'll come and scare me, but, unfortunately for you buddy, I've been
 to Hell once, I saw it all, I kicked all their demonic arses to Heaven and
 back, so chew on that."

The old man smiles, but his teeth don't look that attractive, he seems to 
have a set of teeth that a shark would be proud of.  Quietly at first he
starts to emit a rather guttural growl that even a Bear couldn't beat, and
his eyes glow red, burning so bright that you still seem them when you
blink.  Again he speaks, but this time it isn't the voice of a weak old man.

"I know what you did!  I saw it all, you did not go to Hell, Hell is a 
 place where no living human could ever survive."

"What about my first marriage then?" you ask Lucifer.

"Silence you fool.  Your insolence is to be punished.  Jehova will not be
 your saviour this time.  I will make you kneel down at the Gates to Hell."

"O.K, but only if I can meet Elvis."

Lucifer (yeah, it is him you realise, either that, or someone with a lot of
free time), reaches into his pocket and pulls out a service issue pistol. 
He hands it to you and says "I have no desire for you to die without first
having tried to beat my army of darkness.  This pistol should be enough to
see you through, oh, about 3 of them."  He breaks into a very hearty, demonic
laugh (how else would it sound?)

"You know I'm going to toast them all again."  You say to him.

"No", he says, "this time they have all the weapons and the ammunition, and
 you have nothing!  Before you make it to the Gates of Hell you will need to
 find your way through my castle of tricks.  Live short and don't prosper!"

Everything becomes dark, then suddenly you materialise in what seems to be
a high walled court yard, already filled with some Lucifer's army.  You grit
your teeth and think 'It's time to go to work'.....

* Epilogue *

Well, you stand on the far side of the Gate of Hell and think.. so much for
that challenge, and what about that piss weak gate!  You think Lucifer
definately needs to get a perspective on what he is talking about!  Suddenly
Lucifer materialises before you, this time he isn't an old man, and he is
floating in mid air ("Neat trick!" you think).

"Now that you have made it to the Gates of Hell, you will have to fight to
 gain freedom to your pathetic Earth.  Now you must do battle in the
 catacombs that make up the subterranea of my castle."
