    Bootleg Barad-Dûr

    Or Minas-Tirith, as my playtester called it. I made this huge fortress in the middle of a lake, on top of a mountain. Big, medieval, sprawling, non-linear, interconnected; I always had a scratch for WADs with a touch of dungeon-crawling, à la Soulsborne. So I made a ton of these and released them as "The Castle-Pack" on Moddb a year ago, but I kinda forgot to show them off here as well. So here it is, six individual maps in the same vein and style. The one I showcase here is Bootleg Barad-Dûr, called "AFortress.wad" in the folder. It has its own little story, about doomguy having the clear the entire fortress so he can save a fleet of ships and return home, but that's not so important. These maps do take a while to complete, so do make sure you have plenty of freetime when you start one. And now the technical stuff: I made it with GZDoom in mind, I have no idea if it works on anything else. Freelook allowed (and recommended), jumping and crouching allowed, ideal in hardware rendering (because of how vertical it is). Run on Doom II, it starts on map 1. And these maps may be inspired by the Soulsborne games, but I don't consider them particularly difficult. They are fair.

    Non-linear, medieval wad

    In my time searching for non-linear wads, I've never really found one that scratched my itch. So instead, I made one myself, inspired by the Soulsborne series. A grand castle surrounded by cliffs, a town, a forest, dungeons, a parish, gardens, all naturally woven into eachother, with plenty of shortcuts leading back to previous areas where new goodies await. It's one big level that took a friend of mine about an hour to finish. I chose to only share one screenshot because I don't want to ruin too much of the suprise of exploration, which really is the heart and soul of this wad. I'm still a bit of a newb when it comes to making wads, so I suggest muting the music and putting some fantasy midis in the back, Warcraft 2 and Diablo music being the most fitting ones (in my friend's opinion). You can download it here or on Moddb: https://www.moddb.com/games/doom-ii/addons/vania-doom-2-wad Either way, I suggest you go to the Moddb page to get all the tips on how to go about this wad. If not, then just jump ahead, Doom 2, mouselook recommended, jumping allowed but not necessary. Enjoy! Vania.rar
