Misc. Author Info       : Ennead lives in Amherst, Mass, with
                          many housemates, an irish setter, and
                          too much time on his hands.

Story                   : A Mauser .486: the finest gun ever invented
                          by man, God or demon.  See how it gleams in
                          the half-light!  How beautiful its curves... 
                          like the smooth hip of a lover, except you 
                          can shoot people with it.  My daddy had a gun
                          just like it... how I loved that man!  I 
                          haven't felt truly alive ever since that 
                          cyber-demon caught him with his pants down...

Description             : This wad replaces episode 1, is quite large,
                          and features a lot of twisty passages, big 
                          rooms and violence.  The layout is reasonably  
                          interesting; most things interconnect, one way 
                          or another.  There aren't any misaligned
                          textures - I hate seeing that - or pits that
                          you can't get out of.  There are a few secret
                          areas, but none that you need to find to be
                          able to complete the level.  You do have to
                          flip nearly all the switches, though.
                          The "gimmick," I suppose, is that you'll have 
                          to go nearly the entire wad with nothing better 
                          than your trusty pistol (and guts of steel,
                          natch).  There's nothing here you can't kill 
                          - but you won't be able to kill everything,  
                          or finish every room, the first time you 
                          encounter it.  If you hate wads in which you 
                          need to pay attention and dodge a lot, DON'T 
                          download this!

* Play Information *

Episode and Level #     : Doom2 episode 1.
Single Player           : Yes
Cooperative 2-4 Player  : No
Deathmatch 2-4 Player   : No
Difficulty Settings     : YES!  1-2:  Few monsters, lots of healing & ammo.
                                      Probably still to tough for beginners,
                                      though.  What's the point?
                                  3:  More monsters, a bit less stuff.
                                      Fun carnage.
                                4-5:  Many more monsters, much less stuff.
                                      Should be a challenge to all but the
                                      most invincible doom-gods - but it
                                      IS possible to do without cheating.
                                      It'll probably take more than one 
                                      try, though.
New Sounds              : No
New Graphics            : No
New Music               : No
Demos Replaced          : None

* Construction *

Base                    : New level from scratch
Editor(s) used          : Deu, dck.
Known Bugs              : There are a couple of places where razor-thin
                          vertical lines appear that I can't get rid of;
                          they don't hinder play in any way.

Time spent constructing : At least 50 hours (I work slow).

* Copyright / Permissions *

Authors may NOT use this level as a base to build additional
single-player levels, but if anyone wants to modify this for
multi-player or deathmatch use, feel free (but do let me know
when you've done it).  Pistol.wad is too big to make a good
deathmatch, imo, but it might be fun played cooperatively.
