Misc. Author Info : Still making Doom maps.
Description : This map is one of the many parts of the Secret
Santa Imitation Project, led by Brian "Snakes"
Knox. It was meant to imitate the style of Chris
"lupinx-Kassman" Kassap, and is designed for
Single Player, Co-op, and Deathmatch play.
A lonely medieval outpost overlooking a large sea
sits on the edge of the world. In it lies a
magical sword of power, waiting to be taken by a
brave adventurer. But be warned - rumor has it
that the sword was sealed away in order to keep
an alleged curse placed on it at bay...
Additional Credits to : - Brian "Snakes" Knox for the opportunity to
create a map in a style that I'm not accustomed

- James Paddock for the song "Fallen Sun".

places that stop the player. They are in
out-of-the-way areas, but they may pop up in one
or two places.
