Misc. Author Info : This is my second wad, of many...
I am a sci-fi/fantasy writer and avid Dungeons
and Dragons player so I had to make a castle of
my own design. I also run the Dungeons of Doom
website and welcome any Deathmatch challenges that
come my way... oh yeah, in my spare time I try to
work on my bachelor degree... on my breaks between
editing and node-building...
Description : Littlefang. First stop on your journey to the
Planes of Desolation. A lone wooden keep stands
at the center of a grass-covered slab of rock that
floats through an endless cloudy sky. The gate
that brought you here closes behind you with a
familiar flash of green light. You know what your
mission is: Find the master of the keep, the
Arch-Duke of Vileness himself and destroy him.
From his dead hands you must wrest the golden skull
key and activate the final portal that will lead you
to the Elemental Realms. You believe that portal
is hidden deep underground somewhere, and is
probably guarded by more than just the Duke's
demonic minions. The old wizard's final advice to
"You shall never be alone, keep moving, and
WATCH YOUR ASS!!"
Design Concepts : A few definate principles went behind the creation
of this wad. First, I wanted it all to be very
open as well as centralized. There are few areas
that cannot be reached very quickly from practically
anywhere else in the wad. Secondly, I wanted it to
be versatile. There are hundreds of different
attack routes to choose from... the trick is to
find the right one! Third I wanted the basic
structure of the wad to suit Deathmatch maneuvers.
I believe I have achieved all this and way more.
This wad is amazing for Deathmatch competitions,
just the way it's built inspires players to try out
moves they never would have imagined before. I
seriously recommend mouse play... but that's a
matter of preference.

For providing me with a constant source of
inspiration with the crazy things he was always
trying to do in his wads! Also my most diligent
playtester ("I'm addicted to this wad!") and the
only man besides myself to pass it on UV.
Shawn Gerty, Mike Johnston, and Joshua Ransen.
My wife, Ilana Noten, for putting up with my
obsession with wad-editing.
David Wexler for sounds from his WEXMAN4D.WAD...
I'm not totally sure where I got all the sounds
from (my DOOM II directory is kind of messy..) so
if you recognize one of them: "Hey thanks for the
sound man!" -from me...
And, of course, the Wizards at Id for making DOOM!!

**Note about Difficulty Settings:

There aren't enough for fun single-player action....
I seriously recommend getting to know this wad a little on skill
setting 3 (Hurt Me Plenty) before taking a crack at it on UV.
Skill settings 4 & 5 are intended for master Doom players and so far
have only been mastered by people AFTER they learn the dynamics of

* Important Notes *
I have named this Litlfang version 2.0 for a reason. I built this
entire wad twice because the first version had to many visplanes. I was
unsure what the problem was so I scrapped it and started over. Therefore I
have spent countless hours tweaking this wad to perfection but as I am still
just learning about wad-editing I consider this as really just the first
fully playable version. If you are a wad designer and can recommend any
changes or texturing tips I would greatly appreciate hearing from you. If
you simply enjoyed this wad and would be interested in further versions of it
keep your eye glued to my website. I see a ten-level wad in the making here...
If you want to complain about having problems passing this wad on UV,
you can find a demo of the author showing off his own route through the wad
at my website. If you don't have any connections to the Net... GET SOME!
A final note about the sounds: turn them up REAL loud when you run
into the Arch-Duke!
And pay attention to what the Sergeants tell you to do when you start.
