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.

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.WAD is a damn big new level for E1M1 registered
DOOM which I think fulfills all the above definitions.... 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.
