About This File

An Episode 3 replacement for HERETIC. The episode is laid out so that levels 1-3 are inspired by E1, levels 4, 9, and 5 by E2, and levels 6-8 by E3. Expect a boss fight every 3rd level. I tried to make the difficulty progress nicely so that the beginning is easy but by the end you'll be given some tough fights. I also tried to balance ammo so that each level could be completed from "elvenwand start".

A source port that can support DECORATE (ZDoom or Vavoom) is required to run this episode. However, the wad was designed and plays in a rather old-school manner. If you choose to play this levelset you will see why I did it this way. I hope this doesn't stop purists from enjoying the levels. I disabled crouching and jumping, and to make the experience more classic, you should refrain from using freelook if you can. I STRONGLY recommend ZDoom because it renders the levels exactly as I intended them; Vavoom does not.

This manages to be classic yet doesn't rehash well-worn territory. An awesome set of levels for Heretic!

Best WAD for Heretic ever... because just when you think you've finished, you realise that there's even more. It's good to see a new Boss in Heretic that actually feels like it belongs. Problem is the Morph Ovum can turn him into a chicken :P 6/5

Very high quality - the design of these levels brilliantly encompasses all default Heretic map themes in a very stylish way. 5* (played with Heretic++, very recommended too!!)

And out of nowhere comes...a wonderful new Heretic episode! Might not quite be the next Curse but actually it's currently rated higher and I'm adding to the five-train with another deserved 5/5.

Excellent work, with a nice "old school" feeling and a very clever placement for the secret areas. It is one of the few wads which made me replay it just to try to get those secrets I missed the first time. Again ! Magma/07-2011 - 5/5

A new fantastic Heretic episode. It's the fourth best episode I've played. I prefer Carnage Galore I&II and Curse of D'Sparil, but this is the way. 5/5

A very nice map set for anyone who enjoy classic Heretic like I do. An unfortunate rarity. Please everyone make more of these projects that respect the source material. 4/5, Kristus.

the maps are good. the final fight with avatar, can however be skipped if you go back, activate the 2 switches and dodge his attacks. this is the general flaw of wad but overall it's good! i will give this 3/5 for effort! :)

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
