Description : Hehe, just a random weaponset I cooked up one day.
However, this one is designed for maximum
compatibility, so it can be used on Skulltag as
well, for some online multiplayer action. Still,
That doesn't mean that I didn't have room for
a couple of sweet effects here and there. :P
So anyway... uh... enjoy and stuff!!!!!!!!(insert
lots of 1's here)
Teh Story : Once upon a time, there was this seemingly average
Zdoom forum-goer named Destroyer. He was one
hell of a cool guy and an awesome Doom player
(Especially in Deathmatch mode), yet for some
strange reason, most of the people online disliked
him for no apparent reason. Was it because
Destroyer kicked their asses all the time or
because they didn't like the color of his shoes?
Actually, it was for another reason, but I'll
get to that in a minute. So anyways, Destroyer
was feeling kind of down and sad and stuff
because of the things the Evil Guys said. Then,
one day, something happened that would change
his life forever.
Destroyer was lounging around in #truezdoom with
his friends Xaser and MasterOFDeath, when Xaser
sent Destroyer a wad to playtest (a fairly common
occurence). However, when he opened the wad,
Zdoom started spitting out all kinds of garbled
code and other assorted strangeness. Suddenly,
a flash of blue light appeared, and the monitor
screen of Destroyer's computer grew brighter and
brighter and the blue light started to envelop
the whole room. Pretty soon, Destroyer could see
nothing except blue. Then, for no reason at all,
he experiences total weightlessness for a few
seconds, then he blues out (you know, like
blacking out, only with blue instead of black).
When he comes to, he sees that he's in a small
bare room with two other guys in it. One is
wearing a green suit and sunglasses and
the other has night vision goggles and a suit
that seems to be changing colors rapidly.
The first man then speaks: "Hiz0r!"
Knowing that nobody in their right mind would
ever say something like that, Destroyer deduced
that it had to have been Xaser himself who said
that. "Xaser, is that you?" asks Destroyer.
"Heh. How'd you guess?" was the response.
"Wait, if he's Xaser, then you must be MoD!"
Destroyer says to the guy in the rainbow suit.
"Hehe, yep. It;s me!" exclaims MoD.
"Okay, now could somebody please tell me where
the hell I am now?"
"You're in #truezdoom", says Xaser. "Say what?"
responds Destroyer. "That wad I sent you wasn't
really me newest weapon replacement. It was a
gateway that transported you through time. We're
in the future now."
"Huh? Wait, so I'm in the future, and I'm talking
in #truezdoom? I don't believe it.", says
Destroyer. "Haha, it's like on The Matrix when
Neo gets told that nothing's real!", exclaims MoD.
Everyone stares blankly at MoD.
"So anyway, can you please telll me what the hell
I'm doing here?", asks Destroyer. "Well, It's
simple. Benjamin deciphered some ancient texts
saying that you were really some super guy who
is supposed to save the world, so I built a
time machine so I could bring all 3 of us here,"
was Xaser's response.
"Well, okay, I guess." Says Destroyer. "Hey wait,
"He's one of the characters from Death to Chainsaws.
He's the head scientist guy who always creates
new weapons and deciphers text and does all that
other cool Scientist stuff," replied Xaser.
"Okay, makes sense."
"Man, you should see how D2C is doing! It was a
smash hit and won the award of being teh best
Doom wad in existance! Hell, they even made a
movie out of it! It's even more popular than
Spider Man 3 and the Matrix Returns!!!"
"Uh, we're getting a bit off topic here," says
MoD. "Heh. Yep, he's still the same old Xaser,"
says Destroyer. "Still, I want to know why
exactly you think I'm some sort of super guy."
"Well, you know those people who always made
fun of you? It turns out that they're really
a society of evil geeks that call themselves
the Assholes. They stole the plans for my
time machine and they traveled to the future
and took over the internet! You're the only
person powerful enough to stop the Assholes!"
"Uh... did you ever realize that if you hadn't
made the time machine in the first place, the
Asshole guys wouldn't ever have taken over?"
"No, er... shit."
"Well, no matter. I hate those guys anyway and
I would do anything to kill them!", says Destroyer.
Suddenly, Xaser's figure disappears and a bunch of
text appears on the wall, which says "Xaser has
Quit IRC: Ping Timeout".
"Argh, dialup sucks.", says MoD. "No matter. I'll
fire up the teleporter and send you into the evil
realm where the Assholes live."
A teleport thingy appears and Destroyer enters.
"Hey, it's just like the beginning of Doom2
Map01!!!", says Destroyer. "Actually, it can
be any doom level you want. You just have to
concentrate really hard," replies MoD.
"Okay." Destroyer closes his eyes, and when he
reopens them, he's in Mock2 Map01.
"Whoa, don't get too carried away. Playing
Mock2 can yield some pretty strange results."
says MoD. "Well, it can't be as bad as Warzone,
though. Some of the stealth monsters were
nonexistant and stuff. Hey, can I even make
this a deathmatch if I want?"
"Hehe, sure! You can do just about any type of
Doom game, thanks to it's compatibility setting
so be exceedingly high."
"Oh, never mind. So, have you noticed the new
"Oh, heh. Damn, these things are pretty damn
cool! All these effects using DEHACKED only?"
"Yep. No Dehsupp or DECORATE present. Those just
seem to kill the compatibility of the wad.
Now go out there and kick some Asshole asses!"
"Okay, thanks, MoD!"
"NP and stuff."
So Destroyer sets off with his really cool arsenal
of weapons to "kick those Asshole asses." In fact,
He's not just Destroyer anymore. From now on, he
will be known as The Great Destroyer.
(I apologize for making absolutely no sense.)
