Map Type : Deathmatch 2-4 players
Map description : A small gothic based indoor map for 1v1, FFA, Teamplay,
and just for the heck of it, CTF too :-)
The map is based on 16th century fighting arenas.
Notes : Inspiration came when I was watching the film "Rob Roy"
one night when I was on my snowboarding season holiday
in France, luckily I had my laptop with me so I set
about creating this little level for you all to enjoy.
Gameplay : It plays well with bots, who roam the whole level
quite happily. The gameplay is very standoff-ish which
is intended. The weapons were carefully chosen (LG, RL)
to bring this out even more. There is only just enough
health available which helps keep the players moving
around the level. The lack of LG ammo *IS* *INTENDED*.
I didn't design the map with CTF in mind, but it's
actually kinda fun :-)
