The Day of Chains is a vanilla-compatible Episode 2 themed techbase map, created by Serious MOod for ChaingunnerX's birthday in Fall 2016. The mapset consists of the main level Rough Place (truncated to Rough Pl. on the automap and named Bitter Place in the MAPINFO lump), followed by a brief The End map to block progress into Doom's original episode.

In their review, ONEMANDOOM praised the map for its visual design and enemy variety, but noted a lack of ammo, especially for the rocket launcher.
