About This File

After you entered the core of the volcano in Fiery Descent, you found yourself in the middle of a smoldering crater on the other side. This map picks up where that one left off, as you journey deeper into it, discovering an ancient fortress built into the side of the lava mountain.

I was heavily inspired by the designs of Gothic DM when I built the fortress areas of the map.. and because of that came very close to Heretic's limit on lines displayed. I also brushed up against the savegame buffer limit (as I did with Water City), and so that's why the area around the blue key seems small. If I made the map larger like I was planning on doing, then you wouldn't be able to save. Not worth it..

This level has been designed to be extremely difficult, so only Heretic masters need apply. There is just enough ammo to get through things, but don't count on not ever having to fall back on weaker weapons. Also, use those Time Bombs! I didn't put a dozen of them in the map for nothing!

Excellent work ! I wonder how that map would be big and detailed without vanilla Heretic limitations, heh. 5/5 of course. ~Naan

A more than worthy sequel to "Fiery Descent." It's bigger and tougher, although the ammo isn't quite as tight as the author states--I had 150+ hellstaff charges at the end (playing on "smite-meister"). Anyway, the terrain is varied but does an excellent job of sticking to the theme, and the same can be said of the fights. Like its predecessor, it's still generally cramped, but there is in general more room to run than before. --TDotW

      Some large trapping maps and some tricky small ones. I didn't find Eye 1 the episode replacement with that creepy green imp. My favourite its the first one. Awesome classic original midis.

      95' old castle with cool midi. Like the prison and dinning room.

      Love it or hate it, you have to admit that this mod has easily one of the best atmospheres ever made for a Doom mod. The idea for your home being a hub where you can access levels is really cool! When you open new areas and collect keys it gives a great feeling of progression.   Even though I gave it 5/5 stars doesn't mean it doesn't have flaws. The problems I had were getting a little lost while trying to memorize the doors and areas that require specific keys to unlock. Also later the game becomes a little bit slaughtery with the absurd amount of enemies that you have to fight against. Fighting against tons of enemies in tight corridors and small rooms were not really fun at all and the final boss was kind of lame.   Lastly, a really solid, fun and creepy mod to play. I played this mod on October and it boosted the atmosphere by a ton. It was also cool to see new monsters that have been also seen in some of Tormentor667's levels.

      What a classic. One of my favorite Joke Wads of all time.

      Really fun and good map! Unluckily a switch at the start doesn't work on vanilla engine, but works fine on boom 2.02.
