Description Bent double, like old beggars under sacks,
Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge,
Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs
And towards our distant rest began to trudge.
Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots
But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind;
Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
Of disappointed shells that dropped behind.

GAS! Gas! Quick, boys!-- An ecstasy of fumbling,
Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time;
But someone still was yelling out and stumbling
And floundering like a man in fire or lime.--
Dim, through the misty panes and thick green light
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning.

In all my dreams, before my helpless sight,
He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.

If in some smothering dreams you too could pace
Behind the wagon that we flung him in,
And watch the white eyes writhing in his face,
His hanging face, like a devil's sick of sin;
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud
Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues,--
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,
The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria mori.

Slow AGD

The rocket was pretty effective, and the mines were well placed. The gold was a bit awkward to get, and the jump into the exit key room was quite annoying. The tiles were quite odd, but looked kinda pretty, I guess. All in all, it was an ok map - it felt a bit empty, but the things that were there were good.

Not to be mean

but I'd have to agree with you there.
I'll be back later with comments actually on the map, I promise.


I'm a sad bastard I can recite this in latin.
Next map.

And a ded.

To whoever knows who wrote it. Not hard if you study history. This is the weirdest map I have made.
