Description : Crumpets is a set of 9 bite-size boom-compatible
maps, designed to be played from pistol start. The
levels are small, typically 50-100 monsters a
piece, and loosely follow a plutonia / marble-ruins
aesthetic. UV is designed for experts, so I
encourage most players to start off on HMP.

MAP01: "Earl Grey"
Build Time: 1.5 hr
Midi: "Chains of Ocean and Flame" - Xenogears
I think someone put something in my drink...
Build Time: 5.0 hr
Midi: "Dragon Roost Island" - Zelda: Wind Waker
Cute little opening map. Easy fights, nothing special.
Build Time: 4.5 hr
Midi: "Home Sweet Home" - The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall
Tiny map that can be deceptively tough on UV.
Build Time: 3.5 hr
Midi: "Character Making" - Final Fantasy Tactics
First level I made for the set. I originally was just scribbling around
trying to hash out texture themes that would eventually become Sunlust
map14, but I decided it would be fun to sharpen the old speedmapping claws.
Thus "Crumpets" was born, a way for me to entertain myself with some
relaxing mapping in between the development of maps for other projects.
MAP05: "Mint Chocolate"
Build Time: 6.5 hr
Midi: "Subterra" - Original composition by Ribbiks
Super compact little map. A few tough fights on UV, a glimpse of what's to
come. Several aesthetics were inspired by map24 of CChest2, as was the midi
I made for the level.
Build Time: 4.5 hr
Midi: "Stage 4" - Alien Vs. Predator (SNES)
A tight, slightly awkward layout with predominantly claustrobic fights. I
really like this progression in this map, though I understand that many
players will probably dislike it for being so cramped.
MAP07: "Frog And Toad"
Build Time: 8.0 hr
Midi: "Trisection" - Final Fantasy Tactics
A layout that was originally drawn up during a speedmapping session of some
sort (one of the Tango TV ones maybe?). I didn't complete it in the alotted
time so I put it on the backburner and eventually polished it up for this
set. Hard as nails! You can finish it super-quick with a ballsy rush on the
YK, but there's plenty of neat optional content as well.
Build Time: 6.0 hr
Midi: "Egypt" - Original composition by Ribbiks
Delicious curves! This one ended up being more spacious than I anticipated.
The enemy composition and darkened visuals introduce an oppressive
atmosphere to the mapset.
Build Time: 12.0 hr
Midi: "Under The Stars" - Final Fantasy Tactics
Piggybacking on the darkness aesthetic, I wanted a grandiose finale chock
full of dickery. I spent quite a bit longer on this map compared to the
others, mostly due to its larger scale. Every perched boss monster can be
telefragged, don't waste your ammo!
