Baron's Realm is a vanilla-compatible single-level PWAD released by SMG_Man in December 2021, who originally created it back in August 2021 for a speedmapping project held on the Doomworld forums. It is a loose remake of Baron's Den, it requires TNT: Evilution as the IWAD, and it features the MIDI piece "Astral Dreadnought" by Jimmy.
