Absolutely masterful. From the excellent architecture to the careful placement of ammo so that you never have too much of it and the enemies are aplenty.

Yes, one of the most tense maps in terms of ammo and baddies. You´re nearly forced to axe some knights early on to make it a littlebit stressless, but thats fine. Architecturewise, this has to be one of the best looking maps ever, no doubt. When i grow up, i wanna map like this!

A great map indeed, right up there with Marcher as one of the best Quake castle maps. The opening is a great tribute to The Ogre Citadel, and I love how it takes you to that map when you go through the exit.

What a map! What a map. 5/5

A very impressive map, let down only by a confusing layout - I found myself forced to noclip in order to figure out where to go next when it came to looking for the final rune, and even then it took me quite a while. Plenty of beautiful architecture and challenging combat though, which makes this a blast to play when the pacing doesn't fall apart.

This is a great map! A huge castle with lots of monsters.

Very well designed, and mostly custom textures, making it exiting to explore the whole thing.

Takes a while to finish the first time through.

Good 30 minute game play. Nice challenges. Overall design well done.

This map is.... insane. Almost too good to be true. Damn, it' 2019 and I still feel no need to play any other shooter as long as there are maps like this. I begin to fear that maps can't get any better. Only gipe is... I can't find the fourth rune... seems to be a bit harder to find, eh ;-)

Olivero Guest 19 November 2019, 22:37

Yes, I did it!! I found the fourth rune and completed the level! Without cheating. Ok, some useful (?) information: Yes, the map is on the dark side (technically), but that gives it a unique feeling as that matches the environment rather well, I think. There is a lot to explore in this map, and not always totally clear which way to go, but if I managed I am sure you will also! And, btw, I'd call it a cathedral, not a castle.

Really fond memories of this map, as it was the first Quake map I ever downloaded and played back in the day. And what a map to start with! Great architecture and theme, atmosphere is tense, the layout and scope is huge, especially considering this is vanilla Quake. Collecting the runes and finding all secrets and kills is quite the challenge. While it may pale in comparison to modern large-scale maps like Forgotten Sepulchre, this is a total classic and has aged like fine wine.

It seems broken on the "easy" difficulty; cannot complete a sequence with two Vores, to open the gates after the silver key grab, since only one Vore does appear.

I saw the two Vores thing on a playthrough.

One of the best maps I have ever played. I wish it could be added to official Add-Ons like "Honey", I mean in rerelease. The layout of the map is ingenious, windy & twisty & lot of verticality. Battles are very inventive and interesting to play. All those 4 runes are guarded and fighting guards was a plain pleasure. Recommended to all players but also to all mappers, since layout is something to learn here
