Other levels by author : Baby-1, Beyond-1, Bigcity, Asylum
Game : Doom2 1.9
Description : The design of these wads spans three or
four time periods thus the name Immortal.
It also reflects the game itself.
Many changes have occured and we have
Quake, Boom, Xdoom and Zdoom to name a few.
Some of them include nice enhancements but
for me nothing matches the feel and play of
the original game.
These levels are designed for all skill levels
but they are not easy. UV is better left to the
advanced players. All three skill levels present
a good challenge and all are fun to play.
I recorded each level in UV as part of playtesting.
It would be great to see them all recorded as
fast as possible. If done I'm sure John Blackburn
would post them on his Home Page. Or perhaps the
fastest recording of each level by different people!
PLease record, we'll post the fastest UV lmps.
The textures are beautiful and reflect what had to
be a great amount of work on the part of the
Gothic Crew. One of the wads is a showcase for all
of the stained glass and was built especially for
my wife, as was Camelot.
Additional Credits to : My son (Rich) for his encouragement.
My friends Steve and Byarr for their encouragement.
My friend John Blackburn for all his help and
support. He encouraged me to build this megawad.
He also created the title page and the deh
patch to add the map titles and playtested
and recorded every map in Grandmaster style!
John is a good friend and a great player.
He has a great Doom/2 Home Page at:
Many thanks to the Gothic Crew for the textures.
Jens Hykkelbjerg for his RMB.
Olivier Montanuy for his Wintex.
Bill Neisius for Dmaud
Digital Expressions for Midi2Mus.

Thanks to all!
