A massive demonic invasion has overwhelmed the Union Aerospace Corporation's Mars Research Facility, leaving only chaos and horror in its wake. As one of only a few survivors, you must fight your way to hell and back against a horde of evil monsters.
(This is not a Dark Mod mission. Also, I am not the author.) A terrific (and scary) castle themed map.

It appeared from out of the mist.
"Every century, it materializes under the full moon" says the
inhabitants of a secluded European village. They say that a dreadful
king of demons inhabits this mystical castle and that his curse is what
allows this fortress to return every 100 years.
"Nothing but superstitious fairy tales." That's what people would have
thought the last time this anomaly appeared. But things have changed.
Two decades ago, Mankind was nearly exterminated by an army of pure
evil. This "curse" would not go unnoticed this time!
Mankind needed to act quickly. They did not waste time sending in a
recon team to gather intel. Instead, a strike team was immediately
dispatched to neutralize whatever threat is lurking inside that
mysterious stronghold. After all, we don't want them(whatever is in
there) to make the first move. It's too risky.

Hello, Marine! You've been assigned to this crummy job. Your squad
has set up camp in a secured Gatehouse at the castle's main entrance.
Service lights, beds, and supply crates cover the floors and walls
of this ancient brick structure.
The past few days has been nonstop killing of any and all demons that
lurk in the dark corridors of these looming structures. Most of the
squad have ventured deep into the heart of the castle. Only a handful of
marines, including yourself, was left to guard the entrance and dungeon
perimeter, just in case the demons try to trap you all inside from the
only way out.
For the past few hours, you have sat out in the brisk canyon just shy of
the drawbridge, listening to the radio chatter of gunfire and growls.
Guard duty sucks.
Suddenly, you hear pistols firing off in the Gatehouse nearby. It
was supposed to be secure! Get the hell back in there and help
your squadmates! If these monsters are ever allowed to leave the
premises, Humanity can once again become endangered. The source of this
threat must be eliminated. Your mission is simple: kill without
question. This place needs to be cleaned up before it becomes

---Super Special Thanks---
To my sister Sarah, who not only supports my decision to someday make
games for a living, but was kind enough to help test the map.
Thanks to both eVolution and bladeghost from the Doom3World forums for
helping me find some suitable ambient sounds. I just barely found the
right amount of sounds to breathe life into the atmosphere, save that I
had to do a little editing in Goldwave, which is NOT my specialty. XD
To www.findsounds.com for providing the sound effects.
To the entire Doom3World community.
* I hope I didn't leave anyone out. I apologize to anyone that I have
forgotten to thank.

link to where the Gatehouse will be hosted so that people can download
all the required custom media from there. I just want to avoid any

textures, static models, or sound design. This will become apparent once
you play through my map. XD
