Re: The 3D Realms Vault: 1994 Design Tips from Tom Hall - Part 1
My favorite part of this document was the "don't draw things in the walls". This was part of the design used for the original Rise of the Triad.

I went to Tom and asked for permission to violate that, because I thought of a loophole. I asked if I could draw a message in the walls using Standard Galactic Alphabet from Commander Keen.

Tom agreed, and that was the origin of the "Dopefish Lives" message in my "Eight Ways to Hell" level of Rise of the Triad.
