Background: The old priory is being excavated and studied by archaeologists and
art historians. It seems to hold among other things some fresco walls by the old
master Piero della Francesca which are strangely similar to those found at the
church of San Francesco in Arezzo.

Terrorists: Supported by the Holy Scriptures and the Fathers, you declare
unanimously, in the name of the Holy Trinity, that there shall be rejected and
removed and cursed out of the Christian Church every likeness which is made out
of any material and colour whatever by the evil art of painters.Blow up the fresco
wall or the mosaic floor to stop the archaeologists' excavation and destroy the invaluable but blasphemic artwork.

Counter-Terrorists: Protect the old priory ruin from any harm!

Thanks to csmapcentral.com and warcry for testing beta1.

I have also decided to publish the textures I made for the map. I ended up making over 220 textures, but only 137 of them are actually used. I have packed 209 of the textures, both used and unused, into a wad for you.

I've calibrated the light settings in Valve Hammer Editor / Worldcraft with the light settings in the program in which I made the sky, Terragen, so that when you step in to the shadows of the map, you can't see the sun. It took a while to figure out how to do it, so I've written a small tutorial for interested mappers.
