Hi all, this is an improved version of the original, and quite acclaimed pwad, WANTON. I've taken all the suggestions from the original post (wanton was actually one of the first full levels created for doom) and tried to implement them to make a better pwad. This level will also be released for doom2 as WANTON2. Enjoy! ================================================================ Filename : WANTON.ZIP Author : Jason Franklin Email Address : <email removed> Short Description : Wanton is a large level split into four trianglular sections and a large middle arena. This level is a slugfest! I have gone to great extents to make it a good deathmatch level as well as a good single player level. Description: Take on the hellish creatures of doom on their own turf! First, you will face flying skulls on a precarious path in their dark and fiery home (with teleporters should you accidently slip "ooops"). Then it's off to the playground of the cacos a place of great heights and quite a bit of slime. Should you be lucky enough to survive that, you will be plunged into the blood maze of the demons. A rather disgusting place where even the walls bleed and most likely so will your knuckles. You will find very little ammo here, bezerk is your only friend, and the return trip is even worse. Finally, you will be roasted in the cave of the barons and that's still not the end. To reach the exit you will return to the arena, which should be filled with corpses already, and cower in front of the final and the largest (quite possibly) horde of hell spawn ever assembled. This level is WANTON. Additional Credits to : Id, the authors of DEU, IDBSP, WAD_DWD, and all my playtesters. ================================================================ * Play Information * Episode and Level # : E1M1 Single Player : Yes Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes!

Ok, so it may not be that lewd or lustful but the imps do wear spikes which does kinda remind me of bondage r sumthing. Wanton can be played solo, cooperative or deathmatch and the difficulty levels are active. I definitely suggest playing hurt me plenty or easier at first and working your way up if you feel brave. This is a very large level (average play time is 40 mins to SUCKS) and it will challenge your dooming abilities. In order to complete this level you will need to be quite effective with ALL the E1 weapons including a good right uppercut. This is not a "puzzle" level though there are many secrets to be found, and it's also not a "ooh ooh I got an editor I think I'll make you fight 3 Cyberdemons and a Spiderdemon or two but it will be ok cause I'll give you a BFG and 10,000 enegypacks in the first room and it will be fun yeah" level either. Most importantly, the default deu wall texture isn't used anywhere (I reallly hate that texture.) Wanton was created using DEU 5.0 and BSP1.1x both of which are bitchin' programs. Kudos to the authors. Ok, enough ramblin'. Enjoy! Lemme know what you think of this level, comments and flames welcome. <email removed>
