Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the bat-shaped room, press on the demon face on the north wall. Return to the curve staircase and there will be a new compartment to the north. Enter it and open the back wall to get a green armor. (sector 574)
  2. Open the east door in the ring-shaped hall. Open the recessed wall to the south and follow the path to a berserk pack. (sector 577)
  3. In the marble halls, go south from the first big room, and just before entering the next big room, open the south wall. You will find stimpacks and a box of ammo. (sector 598)


An armor (Thing 141) in the northwest has no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, so it does not actually appear in the level. It is at the same spot as an armor bonus on skills 1-3, so probably was intended to appear on skills 4-5.
