Doom written media.

Recommended Posts

So now that Id are creating a Doom universe, why not expand upon it with written media?


It seems any game with a large universe has novels but why not do something original?


I was thinking about an epic poem about the Doomslayer, like Paradise Lost, The Iliad or Odyssey. I read the last two last year and kept thinking how cool it would be to have something like this in the Doom universe. It could even be written by a demon!



Rage—Goddess, sing the rage of Peleus’ son Achilles,
murderous, doomed, that cost the Achaeans countless losses,
hurling down to the House of Death so many sturdy souls,
great fighters’ souls, but made their bodies carrion,
feasts for the dogs and birds,
and the will of Zeus was moving toward its end.
Begin, Muse, when the two first broke and clashed,
Agamemnon lord of men and brilliant Achilles.
