About This File

Once upon a time there existed an amazing little well know as the Leaf Well. Every Autumn, magical little elves, who lived at the bottom of the well, would start making millions of little autumn leaves, and throw them up out of the well. The leaves would float up and up and up into the sky, scattering themselves all over the land, and covering it in a rich brown Autumn blanket.

Only this Autumn, a bunch of greedy warriors decided to go to the top of the well, and steal all the leaves for themselves, thus monopolising the leaf market, and forcing the creatures of the land to pay them gold for the leaves..

The only problem was, the warriors that went to the well to steal the leaves wanted them all for themselves, and so a fight started, and they all started trying to kick the shit out of each other.. there... great story eh?

Anyway, the actual level is a standard arena, totally symetrical, with plenty of weapons, mana, and a few artifacts here and there. If you fall down the leaf well in the middle, then you're dead..

As this was made when the editors just came out, it's design is a little limited. No cool Hexen scripts, or rotating/sliding sectors and stuff, just a standard level. It's still fun for deathmatch though, preferably with 3 or 4 players, but 2 will do. I've tried to keep it pretty balanced, with the level not giving an advantage to any class, so it should be pretty even no matter what class you choose..

If you make any cool lmps on this level, or have any flames, comments, or critisms, then send them to me! You can also find me on irc most days.. look for Snail..

      It's a very impressive megawad with a nice themed ancient Egypt atmosphere, with very nice choosing of textures to contribute to that theme, very nice architecture and impressive (and very risky) twist on the story going from ancient Egypt to alien spaceships, without using hi-pitched colors like in Ancient Aliens. Also, very tough megawad, if you're masochist enough, you can play it with Complex Doom and add LCA for more doses of pain.

      It's okay. Quite easy due to the abundance of artifacts, mana, & health. The level design is fine, nothing special. The only truly bad part was the unmarked puzzle bookcases, forcing you to wallhump the entire library as a last resort. Otherwise it's pretty simple stuff, running around finding keys and smashing monsters. The texturing and lighting aren't fantastic but aren't noticeably bad either. The only glaring issue is that many windows just show a wall textured with the sky texture rather than an area with a sky ceiling. Yet there are perfectly normal outdoor areas. Perhaps the author only figured it out skies halfway through development? Anyways, this is worth your time if you want an hour or two of simple Hexen fun.

      It's a nice wad overall, nice map design, textures and monster placement, enjoyed playing on D-Touch (GZDoom1.8) with Dude4th weapon mod.  My only complain would be the secrets, they have very few to no clues about their position.  There was a problem on E3M5 on the secrets around the squared starting room with stairs, the wall closes and let me stuck inside, had to use idclip to get out from those secret rooms.

      I recently played through this continuously twice on UV. Overall I feel this is an expertly crafted WAD from start to finish. Beautiful scenery, great soundtrack, and intense gameplay. Maybe a little too intense sometimes, and with that it's probably not a WAD I'll recommend to newbies. If less experienced players absolutely have to try it, I suggest playing on the lower difficulty modes as the included readme suggests. Describing the later maps of this WAD as "brutal" on UV is an understatement to say the least.
