Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the start, go to the first open area and then southeast and up to a soul sphere. (sector 15)
  2. Go to the backside of the altar in the southern part of the map. When you press the skull switch, you teleport above it. Turn right and run between the torches near the south wall to teleport again. Again, turn right and move between the torches on the wall. Turn slightly right towards the bend in the road above blood, and when you move between these two torches, you will teleport into a new room. When you go through the middle part of this room, two spectres and two arch-viles appear on the sides. Press the switch in the left compartment to open a teleporter out of here, as well as the megasphere which is the secret. (sector 601)
