Misc. Author Info      : Avid Doom player and designer who thinks Doom
                         is still the best game to make levels for

Other files by author  : DUNGEONS.WAD - Medium-sized wad centered around 
                                        a rocky maze and a castle-like area.
                                        Does not require BOOM to run.

Description            : A marble castle and the surrounding caves and
                         mountains. The name comes from the music, "The Call
                         of Ktulu" by Metallica. The music fits the mood of
                         the level perfectly and I thought the name did, too.
                         I think this is a pretty hard wad, but I spent a lot
                         of time implementing the skill levels so hopefully
                         everyone will find a level corresponding to his or
                         her skills.

                         If you have any comments about this wad I'd love 
                         to hear them!
