E4M5: They Will Repent (Doom)
|Ultimate Doom maps|
|Knee-Deep in the Dead|
|The Shores of Hell|
E4M5: They Will Repent is the fifth map of Thy Flesh Consumed in Doom. It was designed by Tim Willits, with the original layout created by his sister, Theresa Chasar. It uses the music track "Waltz of the Demons." In the Doom Classic port, it has a par time of 3:00.
The map title comes from Luke 16:30: "No, father Abraham, but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent."
In the starting room, turn left and go southward to a door. Enter the door. Go to the right in the next room and open another green door leading north. In the hall, go north to a lift and use it to rise. Grab the red skull key in the northeastern corner of the room.
In the room you are now, you can see the green door requiring the red key. If you want to collect the blue key do not enter that door and backtrack to the previous room. Head westward to the second door requiring the red key. Enter it and, in the next room, go north and lower a lift. Grab the blue skull key on the lift.
Because the blue key is optional to collect in this level, there are two ways to go further. In case if you have just collected the blue key: 1) From the lift room where you have found the blue key, rise on the lift and open the door marked by red torch in the next room. Go northeastward in the marble hall and open the green door marked with two blue skull bars. In the next room, not falling down jump on the platforms toward the lift.
Otherwise, if you do not collect the blue skull key: 2) In the room where you have found the red key, open the red door in the southwest of the room which is noted in the Blue key paragraph. In the room, use the lift ahead to go down. In the marble hall, drop into blood and rise on the stairs in the northwest of the room. Instead of going into the blue door, drop into blood pool to the north. Collect the soulsphere and go into the corridor north. Turn right and proceed southeastward in the next room to get into another room.
Drop down into blood pool northwestward. Open the gargoyle marble. Head into the teleporter. In the other place, walk on the ledge and grab the yellow skull key. Backtrack by using the teleporter pad. Now open the yellow door. Flip the switch to finish the level.
- Go through the red door in the same room where the red key is found. In the following area, open the 45-degree-angle wall to reveal a small secret closet. (sector 76)
- Just before the yellow door is a narrow river of blood you must cross. Follow this to the left and open the gargoyle-faced wall. Open the wall to the left (with the gap in the bottom) in the next small room to get a berserk pack. (sector 151)
