My WAD "Tribute" won a Cacoward in 2009.
Description : Hexen style crypt with Doom and Realm667 monsters to
kill and secrets to discover.
This map started as a wrap around the song that I
planned to use for some time now. As the music comes
from a Fantasy Dungeon Crawler RPG game "Lands of
Lore" I decided to go with the Hexen theme for this
map. Texture pack provided by Realm667 has proved to
be very helpful in acomplishing this task.
The other thing that I wanted to reuse was the Vulcan
Cannon sprites that I have already used in my somewhat
primitive Terminator WAD. This time it is even
more powerful and even more noisy.
The usual "Gloomy-Why-We-Have-To-Kill-Everyone" story
has been provided in the section below.
So, go play this not too long but also not quite short
map and have fun.

Story (Who cares about story? Let's just kill some stuff!)

time. Hell Legions are endless and humanity is slowly being defeated in this
war - war that has already taken all your friends and everything you cared for.
One day you heard a legend of a Raven Crypt - an ominous place located somewhere
in the outskirts of the galaxy. It is said that in this crypt lies a device
that grants one wish to whomever finds it. Many have gone to seek it and
disappeared in deep space - until finally someone, someday found the exact
Up to this day no one who ventured in has ever come back. Having nothing to
lose you decide to try your chances...
