Description             : A set of 3 rather difficult maps designed to be 
                          played from pistol start, each one approaching 
                          said difficulty differently. What these maps have 
                          in common is Quake-influenced visual appearance, 
                          though once again, the actual themes vary from map
                          to map.
                          
                          01 is an aggravating gimmick map where I was
                          experimenting with annoying things, so I don't
                          expect for many to like it (thankfully, it's fairly
                          short). Moreover, it's very different from the
                          other two, and is also a rather misleading opener,
                          yet for my own obscure reasons I have to insist on
                          leaving the map order as is.
                          
                          02 is notably easier than the previous one, and
                          it's also as close as this mapset gets to "normal"
                          contemporary maps, relatively fast pace and some
                          upbeat moments throughout but overall this map's
                          rather lenient and generous with all kinds of
                          supplies.
                          
                          03 is essentially 02 on steroids, more open-ended
                          and free-form, yet it's also notably harsher, with
                          several moments of slaughter-grade goodness, even
                          though the majority of the map is still dominated 
                          by low-key "incidental" encounters. The secrets 
                          also contain optional battles and powerful goodies.
                          
                          PROTIP: I quite like using candles and various
                          "showy" decorations (demon faces, altars etc.)
                          purely for the sake of atmosphere and environmental
                          detailing, so if you're hunting for secrets - these
                          aren't really going to lead you anywhere, you
                          should look for other clues. Apologies for the
                          confusion.

                          The music tracks (.OGG) are by Marc A. Pullen (goes
                          by Fanatic on Doomworld), it's definitely worth
                          noting that they played a major role during this
                          mapset's development and made a huge impact on its
                          final shape. In fact, I can't thank Fanatic enough
                          for what he's been doing on musical front all these
                          years, so making some maps largely inspired by his
                          tracks is the least I can do to express my
                          gratitude and utmost respect.
