Letters in italics refer to marked spots on the map. Sector, thing, and linedef numbers in boldface are secrets which count toward the end-of-level tally.


At the start, open the door to your left. Proceed left and approach the wall at the dead end to lower it. Ride the lift up and go to the left to find the yellow key. Return to the start and open the yellow door in the room. Follow the instructions for the yellow key to find a switch. Flip it and backtrack to the previous area to find it has opened up. Go around the central structure and press the switch on its southwest. This will reveal various alcoves around the room. Enter one of them fully to lower more alcoves. Repeat the process until you've stepped on five alcoves and you should hear the sound of a door opening. Move towards the north of the room to see an arrow on the ground pointing to the lift. Ride the lift up and go left. Next to the switch you pressed earlier is a pedestal with the blue key. Collect it and drop down to the library. Move towards the northernmost alcove on the east side of the room to find the blue door. Open it and use the switch to end the level.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the southeastern corner of the map, there is a part of the upper wall with the lion and gargoyle heads. If you use a southern lift and manage to shoot the gargoyle head, you will reveal the satyr switch (that you can still press while it is in the ground). Pressing this switch will temporarily lower two pillars across the map. The pillar on the eastern side has a mega armor. (sector 134)
  2. While the western one has a soulsphere. (sector 135)


The hanging corpses in this map can impede your movement if infinitely tall actors are enabled.
