Misc. Author Info : Student at Worcester Polytech. Member of Army ROTC,
future infantry officer (gee, wonder why I like
DOOM :) ). Plays computer games way to much.
Description : The Apocalyspe has finally come to pass... all of
Earth lies in ruin after a world-wide nuclear war.
You are a lone infantry soldier who has managed
to survive. You were lucky (depends on how you look
at it) to be in an underground bunker when a nuke
hit near your location. After the radiation levels
dropped off, you left to search for more supplies.
After many days of wandering.... you have come to
realize the awful truth... the Earth as you knew it
is no more. You can find no signs of civilization
or life... except of course if you count the
undead. The spawn of hell now roam the Earth...
You never really believed so strongly in the
super-natural untill now (and you think that pissed
them off). You are about to give up and accept
death when you come across a city! Maybe there
are people alive there! Maybe there are fresh
supplies! Or worse yet... maybe the undead, or
even worse... perhaps enemy soldiers could be
lurking in that city. Only one way to find out.....

sky1 textures :) ). My 486 dx2 66 laptop :) (great

support and for making realize that there IS a
world outside of DOOM :). Everyone on alt.games.doom
and the rec.computer.games.doom groups that helped
me with any questions I had. The creators of DEU,

how long you can last on nightmare)

All levels Have weapons (duh), ammo (duh again), Armor, Blur spheres,
1 and 2... Also has medkits, stimpacks, (and other healing powerups), along
with the BFG. Plus- there is a Computer Map, an Invunerability
Sphere, and Light Amp Goggles.

Invunerability Sphere, and Light Amp Goggles.
4 and 5... None of the above
This is a pretty complex deathmatch wad and is for those who like some tricks
and hunting in their deathmatch games and not just a square room with a frag
every second. There are a good deal of secret areas and traps, I have checked
everthing over and over... there are NO good places to 'set up camp', even
places that look great for that, have a safeguard (something like a crushing
ceiling activated from elsewhere. It may be a good idea to have allow all
players to have a quick look at things before getting started). There are,
however, MANY places to hide. Many nooks and cranys and lots of shadows :).
However- everything seems to balance out... email me with any comments or
Also... watch out for bullet-proof windows. I came up with these babies while
just playing around with things (I was determined to build one). Both players
can see one another but neither can shoot each other... not with ANY weapon.
Also... some of these windows are not windows, but force fields (they can be
turned on and off). So... watch out :).
One more thing... almost all the good weapons are in traps... that is-
after you grab the weapon... a door closes behind you and doesn't open for
30 sec.. In that time you are trapped. Be sure to stay close to the door
so that when it opens and you try to leave, you don't accidently activate
the linedef again (and trap yourself for another 30 sec. :) ).
