Description             : 10x10.wad is a modest set of 10 BOOM-compatible maps 
			made as mapping exercises in which I restricted myself 
			to using ten stock textures and ten stock FLATs in each 
			(with some universal textures such as switches, doors, 
			DOORTRAK, lights, etc.)* Pistol starts are intended 
			but I won't put a gun to your head. In addition, 
			there is a secret map that will probably be unpopular.

			*An out of bounds area in MAP01 showcases this 
			universal texturebank for any nerd interested. Also,
			I cheated with ALLBLK for the void sections, sue me.

                                MAP LIST:
===========================================================================

==================
MAP01: "Ten By Ten"
==================       

Introductory techbase map. Sets up some of the gameplay style and visual 
motifs for the WAD. Interconnectedness was the M.O. here.

================
MAP02: "Lockjaw"
================        

Small map. I don't normally work around item scarcity, and can bitch about 
it in playtesting notes sometimes because of that bias so I forced myself 
to try my hand at it, although it probably still has more ammo than needed.

=================
MAP03: "Salvia"
=================        

The first map I made for the project. A mostly nonlinear map with a bit of
a step up in difficulty. Cyberdemons and plasma guns are introduced. There
are three similarly shaped arenas with unique combat chess in each. 

===============
MAP04: "Hey! This Is Library"
===============         

Starts with a double archvile/single-barrel SG fight that might annoy some
people. You can do the big slaughtery fight early or wait until you have 
the red key, up to you.

=======================
MAP05: "No More Zoomer Girls"
=======================

I allowed myself to be "lazy" about some design aspects here such as using 
more symmetry than I like to, and linking the arenas together in linear 
fashion with a central hub. All turreted monsters with blue lights behind 
them will be crushed. There's only one secret in this map but it's a BFG.

===================
MAP06: "Sad Bastard"
===================         

Two-shotting cyberdemons isn't strictly necessary, but the ammo 
distribution doesn't allow you to make too many mistakes with the 
BFG unless you find the secret caches.

===================
MAP07: "The Zzul Method"
===================  

This map is an homage to Killer5's 2021 mapsets The Event Horizon and Zzul
Bases. It comes with all the expected baggage of hazardous platforming,
puzzley progression, cryptic secrets, and about twelve-hundred enemies. 
Just going for the regular exit is quite easy though since the majority of 
the monster count lies in over-the-top secret fights.

===================
MAP08: "Cocoa Puffs Breath"
===================         

This contains what I consider to be my first full-scale slaughter fight, 
with about fourteen-hundred enemies at once (Only two archviles among them
surprisingly). Watch out for the U-shaped staircase, it's a tricky fight.

===================
MAP09: "Abuse Me, Darling"
===================  

Mostly Sunder-inspired though it doesn't go anywhere near as hard as
Gazebo does. Still, you can use saves, ya know.

===================
MAP10: "lunchlunchlunchlunch"
===================  

omg wtf there's less than 800 enemies in this map and the fights are all
small, I wanted some huge epic finale with a million enemies, what an 
anti-climactic end to the mapset, omg bad wad
... "Wow, lunch seems quite defensive and insecure, what a bitch lmao"

===================
MAP31: "The Anna Dream"
===================   

If you don't want to play something that's in the vein of The Sky May Be,
The Ana's Dream, or MAP12 of Auger;Zenith, then don't play this. Or at 
least, I'm not particularly interested in concerns about this specific
map. It's a stupid experimental map made after replaying The Ana's Dream,
though I do believe if one gives it a chance they'll find it surprisingly 
playable.
