Misc. Author Info : N/A
Description : The Soulbruiser of Hell is a custom monster that uses Vader's
Bruiser Demon sprites and core concept (i.e. a strong mid-boss
Baron-like creature that hurls fireballs).
It's made with a DEHACKED patch (well, a BEX patch to be more pedantic)
and replaces the Commander Keen thing.
Test map : Also included is a test map (wh_soh_TestMap.wad). It's a small hellish
fortress with four different battle scenarios involving the
Soulbruiser of Hell.
Warning, these fights are very dangerous and are a good show-off for the
new monster's abilities, I think.
How to use : If you want to use the Soulbruiser of Hell, just extract all of
wh_soh_v2.wad's resources, put them in your own wad, and place a
Commander Keen in your map.
Please note that the Soulbruiser of Hell uses a lot of frames from the Wolf3D
SS nazi (and from the Pain Elemental resurrection sequence), so the nazi
is now replaced by a blood pool.
Gameplay notes : The Soulbruiser of Hell has 1500 health points, i.e. 50% more than the
Baron of Hell. It's also much more dangerous due to its retentless barrage
of fireballs and flaming comets.
Its purpose is to be a demonic mid-boss that puts quite a lot of pressure on
When paired together against a Cyberdemon, two of these creatures stand a
good chance of winning.
There's also a twist : when the Soulbruiser of Hell dies, its whole body
ignites before turning to ashes and bones, and the resulting fire surge can
still kill the victorious player. Don't say you haven't been warned !
