Description             : This level is meant to be a deathmatch 
                          level, but it can also be used as a 
                          "quickie" single player level.  In 
                          single player mode, it is intended to
                          be quite difficult to finish in ultra-
                          violence, challenging in hurt-me-plenty,
                          and a piece of cake on any other level.
                          I've included a demo of me finishing
                          most of the level in ultra-violence 
                          mode if you need some hints to help
                          guide you.  To run the demo, run:

                          doom2 -playdemo paradox9 -file paradox9.wad

                          The challenge is to finish the level, in
                          ultra-violence, no saving, in around 5
                          minutes! Have fun!  My demo takes 6 1/2
                          minutes, but that's cuz I had to use a
                          crappy mouse to record it =O)

                          Care has been taken to make sure the level
                          is balanced in terms of weaponry.  You can
                          grab the plasma gun, but that might cost
                          you your life!

                          My first WAD ever was based on his
                          ULTIMA.WAD, about 8 WAD files ago!

                          used some of the ideas out of this
                          awesome .WAD file)
