Misc. Author Info       : I'm 16, and have been an avid gamer for about 12
                          of those (I started out on Parachute on the ZX
                          Spectrum!).  I've been playing DOOM since only a 
                          month after its release, and I'm pretty hot by now. 
                          Since then, I've blown an alarming portion of the 
                          last two years of my life playing DOOM and building 
                          levels and patches for it.  My complete "By Same 
                          Author" list is below.

                          Other: I'm English, live in France and America, and
                          out of everyone I've ever played, 4 can give me a 
                          hard time, and only two of those can beat me with
                          any regularity.  OK, so I've never exactly played
                          anyone like NoSkill...
Description             : The Villa of Death is a Deathmatch level.  It is a 
                          square single-story house, nicely stocked with 
                          shotguns and chainguns, with some ammo, health,
                          armour, and other stuff.  In the centre of the
                          level is a courtyard, and around the rest of the 
                          house is a large garden.  There are about 13 
                          deathmatch starts, and all players appear near, if 
                          not on, a weapon, none larger than the rocket 
                          launcher.  The exception is the person who spawns 
                          in the 13th spot, who is near a Soul Sphere, Combat 
                          Armour, Plasma Gun, and BFG.  Unfortunately for him, 
                          he can only get one of them, the poor bugger...

                          In the centre of the level is a pool.  In the 
                          middle of that is a large waterfall.  As people 
                          move around in the house, parts of the waterfall 
                          lower.  When they do, run in, and you can grab a 
                          gun or bonus (available are the Plasma Gun, BFG, 
                          Soul Sphere, or Combat Armour, you can only get one 
                          depending on which section opened for you), and once 
                          you grab it you will be teleported somewhere near an 
                          opponent.  There are four possible landing points, 
                          one in each quarter of the villa.  
                          The main weapons in Villa of Death are shotguns, 
                          super-shotguns, and chainguns.  Rocket launchers
                          are there, but few and far between, plus there are
                          only 9 available rockets (including backpacks and
                          launchers), so don't go wild with them.

                          Another feature is the Wardrobe of Death.  You 
                          climb in, and you will find a backpack and a small 
                          window.  Open this window to snipe at anyone in the 
                          courtyard, and slam it shut when they try to shoot 
                          back.  Although this sounds like a good setup, a 
                          black arrow will appear when you enter the Wardrobe, 
                          pointing at you.  This will give anyone running 
                          past an easy frag; all they need to do is pop the 
                          door and blast you in the back.  Charming.   And if 
                          they get you just right, you may even fly through 
                          the window!  Be careful when sniping with rockets, 
                          as the hole closes often, and firing while it's 
                          closed will end with you blowing your own fragging 
                          head off.
                          Around the villa are eight teleporters that take 
                          you between the central courtyard and the outside.  
                          This gives plenty of opportunity for telefragging
                          (the best way to frag!).  There are 12 doors into 
                          the villa, 8 from the courtyard and 4 from outside, 
                          and there are also lots of windows to snipe through.  
                          Watch out that you don't get whacked from behind 
                          while sniping, though.  The level is devoid of 
                          furniture, to allow you to run around better, and 
                          secrets, apart from the waterfall, are non-existant.  
                          This should make the level mildly playable.  Have
                          fun, and mail me with praise, comments, or (gulp) 
                          constructive critism.
