Misc. Author Info       : I've been playing Doom since v. 1.0 (0.99),
                          and creating levels since DEU 5.0.  I've
                          created somewhere around 20 levels, but this
                          is the first time I've made one publicly

Description             : This level replaces GRINDER1.WAD dated
                          5/12/95.  There's now an exit, for those who
                          like to see the "who-killed-how-many-of-who"
                          screen when they're done, and the four
                          corner pillars have been lowered to open
                          the whole level up some more.

                          This level is intended for DeathMatch, and
                          DeathMatch only.  The layout is quite simple:
                          A large, octagonal courtyard, surrounded by
                          four raised ledges and four sunken pillboxes,
                          with a raised, octagonal kiosk at its center.
                          DM start-points are located on each ledge and
                          in each pillbox.
                          A Mega-Sphere (or "Skin" as one of my buddies
                          calls it) is located at the top of the central
                          kiosk.  The top of the kiosk is accessible
                          via any of four lifts.  However, when one lift
                          is lowered, all are lowered, which makes it
                          easy for all players to go for the "Skin" at
                          the same time...  ;>  However, getting to a
                          lift may be difficult, as each is positioned
                          just a short distance away from (and directly
                          in front of) a pillbox where other players may
                          be waiting...  ;> ;>
                          Weapons and ammo are in abundance, both on the
                          ledges and in the pillboxes.  The ledges,
                          however, are only accessible by players who
                          start on them.
                          To get into a pillbox, a player must jump
                          through a teleporter.  The sound of the
                          teleporter will alert players who are already
                          in the pillbox.  There are two such entrances/
                          exits to each pillbox, one on either side.
                          When playing at skill-levels "I'M TOO YOUNG TO
                          DIE", "HEY, NOT TOO ROUGH", and "HURT ME PLENTY",
                          two Soul-Spheres and two sets of Blue Armour are
                          available in the pillboxes.  For "ULTRA-VIOLENCE"
                          and "NIGHTMARE", these turn into four sets of
                          Green Armour.  The "Skin" is available at all

                          The exit requires the cooperation of at least two
                          players, which should keep the level from ending
                          until all players are ready.

                          This level has been thoroughly play-tested (DM),
                          and has proven to be a good fragger.  I tried
                          to keep it simple, so people with slower
                          machines could still enjoy it.  (My 486DX2-66 is
                          ISA-only, and has a pretty slow video card, and
                          this level plays well on it.)

                          The idea for this level was conceived under the
                          influence of the adrenaline rush produced by
                          playing a two-hour 'Dead Simple' DeathMatch.  ;>
