Foetid Manse

[Source]

Field of Judgement is the eighth and final level of The Stagnant Demesne, the fifth episode of Heretic. It is the site of the game's fifth and last boss battle; also, the second time Maulotaurs are used as bosses. This encounter is considerably more difficult than the previous one.

Synopsis

E5M8 heretic

Walkthrough

The level begins in a fully enclosed metal structure, which seemingly has no exits. The room gives you a very generous loadout, with every weapon except the Firemace, a full stock of armor and health, a Tome of Power, a Bag of Holding, a set of Wings of Wrath, a Ring of Invulnerability, a Shadowsphere and ammo for everything, including a full complement of large Phoenix Rod spheres in the center. Gather everything that you can and prepare yourself, because you will need it all.

Once you step on the Serpent Riders' symbol (either through the Wings of Wrath or through jumping if you're using a source port), the walls will open, revealing a large (but completely enclosed by solid walls) arena, where you will have to face D'Sparil's personal guard - a cadre of vicious Maulotaurs.

The key to surviving this fight is to keep moving and do not get boxed in -- especially on Smite-Meister and Black Plague, getting boxed in by Maulotaurs will be the end of you. Try to bunch all of the Maulotaurs into one group so you can hit them easily with the Hellstaff or the Phoenix Rod's primary fire while circle-strafing them. The pillars are good cover against the Maulotaurs' fireballs and ground fire, and the arena is large enough that you do not have to get close to them if you don't want to. Like all final levels in the game, don't worry about saving ammo and powerups for later. Use everything you've got because this is it.

Once the last Maulotaur falls, the eight pillars of the arena will lower, revealing the final exit portals. Entering any of them will end the episode and the game, as Corvus journeys on towards an unknown fate...

Notes

  • It is never revealed why these bodyguards were not present during Corvus's battle with D'Sparil. One possible explanation is that the Serpent Rider deliberately left them behind, to watch over the Stagnant Demesne in his absence.
