MAP27: Paldorian is the twenty-seventh level of Eternal Doom. It was designed by Dave Brachman and uses the music track "Barabbas Reprise".

This level was not added until the final (Eternal III) upgrade, and the same is true for MAP28-MAP30. However, it is not the first level in the entire progression from the Eternal III upgrade, as MAP15 and MAP31 were also not added until that upgrade.

  1. In the northeasternmost room, get on the high ledge and press on either wall with the lights. Use the switch in this corridor, then run to the north side. Get the berserk pack, but look out for the monster that ambushes you here. There are two secrets to get in this room. (sector 702)
  2. See Secret #1. (sector 895)
  3. In the zigzag staircase area, find the cage with the chaingunners and use the switch next to it. Get to the bottom of the steps and climb the first set. A new opening is to the right, and you can open up the wall to reach the chaingunners' cage. Inside, collect the medikit, box of rockets, and box of shotgun shells. (sector 315)
  4. In the southwest room with the berserk pack on the lift, the central column has switches on the right and left sides. Press both, then go to the east alcove and through the open walls to find a box of ammo and a backpack. (sector 762)
  5. Northwest of the nukage-filled room, use the switch to open the northern gate, then jump into the nukage and go that way. There is a gate to your left. You can walk through it. Behind it, you can find a soul sphere. (sector 390)
  6. On the high level of the yellow key room, the wall you saw when you entered the room has a backside you can shoot. Do so to open up a corridor to the southwest. Here you will find an energy cell pack and a switch, which opens a nearby door allowing you to reach a radiation suit, soul sphere, and BFG9000. (sector 837)
