Description : The Pit and the Pendulum is a map designed
for one on one action. Or it can be
used as a 3 to 6 player dm arena or a
2vs2 battleground (my favourite :).
It was inspired by an E.A. Poe's novell.
The first of my maps with curves in it.
Hope you'll like it :)

Comments : Bots bots bots... I had a lot of trouble
with them. They were too lazy to jump at
the Pendulum, so I had to put a
DO NOT ENTER brush on that place...
So they shouldn't go in there anymore.
Also they had the habbit of camping the
PIT not realising it is a teleporter...
Anyway I dont really recommend playing
this map against bots. Thats why I put
a * next to the Single Player option...
Be carefull with the Pendulum. It might
not be there where you see it on internet
games. Sould work ok for LAN I suppose.
Additional Comments : There is a small Dust Puppy hidden inside
the map... Try and find it :)
