**** Strategy/Rules ****
I have had to work around some severe limitations of the Hexen scripting.
1. The flags are Skull and Gem. Skull Team needs to get the Gem from the
opponents fort, return to home base, and put the Gem on the pedestal.
Gem Team needs to get Yorick's Skull and put it on the headless statue.
Just select it from inventory and press enter (or your "use" key).
2. You CAN pick up your own flag. Agree ahead of time if this is acceptable
to your opponents. It will be respawned five minutes after it was
picked up but not used. (i.e. Player carrying the item died, or team
picks up their own flag.) Or when the item is used. Any picking up of
flags _is_ intentional.
3. No class has a definite advantage.
4. Play with monsters on. You will miss out on too much with the -nomonsters
5. The score is announced when a player uses the item. Make sure your
teammate is in the fort when you put the last item in. You'll see why.
6. This level is not focused on frag counts. Although you never know if
the opponent is carrying a flag.
**** One last note ****
For all you wad authors out there, I have included my script file.
Strangest of all, the code is documented.
If you have found better ways of doing things, please e-mail me.
This is also why there aren't any poly objects in this level. I was
too busy learning how to program the game engine to get into the
