Hi all, this is an improved version of the original, and quite
acclaimed pwad, WANTON. I've taken all the suggestions from the
original post (wanton was actually one of the first full levels
created for doom) and tried to implement them to make a better pwad.
This level will also be released for doom2 as WANTON2.
WANTON.WAD is for registered DOOM.

Short Description : Wanton is a large level split into four
trianglular sections and a large middle
arena. This level is a slugfest! I have
gone to great extents to make it a good

Description : Take on the hellish creatures of doom on
their own turf! First, you will face flying
skulls on a precarious path in their dark
and fiery home (with teleporters should you
accidently slip "ooops"). Then it's off to
the playground of the cacos a place of great
heights and quite a bit of slime. Should you
be lucky enough to survive that, you will be

rather disgusting place where even the walls
bleed and most likely so will your knuckles.
You will find very little ammo here, bezerk
is your only friend, and the return trip is
even worse. Finally, you will be roasted in
the cave of the barons and that's still not
the end. To reach the exit you will return
to the arena, which should be filled with
corpses already, and cower in front of the
final and the largest (quite possibly) horde
of hell spawn ever assembled. This level is
