Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the southernmost part of the level, there is a pillar bearing a super shotgun. At the northwestern part of the area is a skull switch on the eastern corner of the building. Press the switch to lower the pillar, and then run onto the pillar before it rises back to get the super shotgun. (sector 1049)
  2. To the south of the building containing the red skull key, one of the bookshelves appears brighter than the others. Push it to lower it, revealing a box of rockets. (sector 1064)
  3. Beyond the red door, the southeastern side of the building to the west features a patch with more prominent gaps between bricks than the rest of the wall. Press on it to lower it, allowing access to 12 health bonuses, two rockets, and a rocket launcher. (sector 641)


There are strips of sky (sectors 1000, 1001) with the wrong color near the yellow skullkey.

In the drop below the red skullkey is trigger linedef 1497. It is placed in front of a door and does not have the pass use flag set, making it block use of the door until the player gets closer than is normally required.

Technical information[edit]

Inspiration and development[edit]

At the start of the project, the MAP06 slot was occupied by Black Void, while MAP27 was occupied by Gimmer. Because of a death in the family, Black Void had to drop out of the project on May 23, 2007. The MAP06 slot was subsequently occupied by Gimmer on June 9, 2007, leaving the MAP27 slot vacant. Two days later, the MAP27 slot would be taken by Eric Baker (The Green Herring), who would contribute MAP27: Ruby Abyss to the project.

This level started development on June 9, 2007, and was completed in only three days. Upon its completion on June 11, 2007, the level was briefly released to the public by mistake, but was subsequently removed and submitted privately.


  • "Foregone Destruction" is also the title of a music track in Unreal Tournament, best known for its use in CTF_Face map.
