Wow. MAYhem 2012 (Get it here), what I thought to be a one time spur of the moment thing actually got some manner of response!
So, by popular demand, and because exams are a few weeks earlier for me this year...we are doing it again!
Only this time, there was some manner of preparation into planning. Also, I learned how to slade3, so I may very well be doing stuff this time (Thanks again Phobus, for doing pretty much everything!)
But for those of you unfamiliar with last years antics, the goal of MAYhem was to make a boom compatible megawad of decent quality in the course of one month. While the quality of some maps was iffy, and it took a wee bit more than a month, the final product did come to pass, and caught the attention of the DWmegawad club...I guess that makes it a megawad then?? I dunno.
The point is, this time it is going to be bigger, it is going to be better, and it is going to be a more streamlined process, in hopes of making MAYhem become an annual thing. This is where you all come in, as this is a community wad. Mappers, music makers (maybe), titlepic and interpic designers (I'll be your fwiend) are all invited!
UPDATE: July Fucking 21st
UPDATE: May 1, 2013
As promised, here are da rules for MAYhem 2013
For this year, the second annual MAYhem, the theme is DOUBLE TROUBLE.
Your objective is to make a single player (coop and DM certainly appreciated, but not required) map that revolves upon one particular rule
You can only use two different monster classes. (See 1monster, and replace 1 with 2.
Certain sub rules with this, just to make things a bit more clear.
Whoever has map07, your two monsters really should be Arachnotrons and Mancubi.
In keeping with the gold standard of monsterclass limitation, Pain Elementals only count as one monster type. Lost souls that are not spawned by PE's are one monster type. (You can have Pain Elementals and any other class, despite lost souls inevitably appearing as a third class...you cant have PEs, independent Lost Souls, and a third prespawned class)
You can change the two monster classes, depending on difficulty level, if you are so inclined.
Barons and Knights are two different classes. Some people like to stick the nobles as one "class", so I will just clear that up now.
Same goes for Pinkies and Spectres.
The Icon of Sin (RomeroHead) totally counts as a monster. Boss shooters are a no-no, hence the hesitation on somebody who wants a boss map. (If you wonder how to do a map with an icon but no shooter, play 1monster)
Please dont use Nazis unless you are doing a secret map.
If you plan to use Keens, let me know. Those things are rare enough as it is, but some people have use them before.
If you wish to use only one class, you can.
Standard rules, that have nothing to do with the theme.
coop and dm encouraged, but not required
Pistol Start kept in mind for all maps.
Dont be a dumb dumb with textures
Custom (MIDI) music is welcome. Give credit where credit is due though.
SPEAKING OF TEXTURES!
The texture pack is cc4-tex. One of the best ones out there now, imo.
I hope this is more tolerable than last time. I didnt realize how seriously folks took their texture packs.
MAPS! Will be given order and whatnot soon.

That is ten if I am not mistaken. Now to actually scour these and get an order.
I apologize for my lack of presence this past month. I had a death in the family three days into the month and the services and whatnot were held during finals week. I spent the second half of the month settling back in and then I almost got laid off one week into my summer shift. Thankfully, most of this worked out as best it could but, consequently I was not able to give this project the attention I had really hoped for this year.
I have enjoyed what I have been able to see thus far, from at least a visual perspective.
