Story . . .
"BOSS1999 the wad"
It had been customary in the land of IMM, (It'll Make Money), to overlook the errors of
those involved in leadership. To exist even under lurid abuse of power was better than being cast
into the prison complex known only as THE JUMPZONE.
Unbeknownst to the Wargod monarch, Vihlyom, and the reclusive harlot queen, Moneeka,
-- a rebellion was forming. It was started by a man known by codename, the boss. Not nearly
finished in planning the first stages of revolt, the boss was betrayed. He was given a mock trial
before the ruling priest-class of the Mass Medeeya.
Condemned, the boss, was sent into the certain doom of THE JUMPZONE. Of course, the

Boss1999.wad is . . .
. . . a many-halled, many-roomed maze of danger and challenge. Survivors are permitted to
leave the maze and re-enter the REAL WORLD. Losers, quitters, and the unskilled have their

This is a two-part WAD with two levels. Level one, the Jumpzone, being a huge affair, is

Type, doom2 -file boss1999.wad, enter, and get infected.
Hints, secrets, blurb:
Boss1999.wad is named in honor of my "day job" boss who is one of the most prolific
wad/level creators I know. Here's to you CAP! It is composed of the following levels:
MAP01- Once named "jumpzone.wad" as I was just learnin' the the fun of running, leaping
and shooting like a crazy. Mirror image confusion, "sweet spot" shooting angles, and trip lines all
are resident here. Shotgun ammo is scarce so improvise with other weapons.
MAP02- First monickered as "endzone.wad" in honor of an old tradition
known as THE BLITZ. Remember that switches used at the right time can be very helpful in
Have a nice day.
