Heretic Treasure Chest was a Heretic community project much in the same vein as the Community Chest series for Doom. It was initially organized by Torn and later managed by Ler and Vermil. Like many community projects, quality is a bit all over the place. The maps range from decent to pretty good. I guess its technically the first Heretic megawad. Anyways, my map is E2M7 “Sky Gateway” (it was originally sitting as E2m8, but was moved to accomodate rf’s much more suitable E2m8).  Though Heretic Treasure Chest was wrapped up and released in 2010, my map was submitted several years before that in 2006. It wasn’t too hot in its original state, but thanks to Vermil polishing it up it sits comfortably with the others.

Dumb fact: It was called “Sky Gateway” since the map originally was supposed to be a castle floating in the sky. Pcorf correctly pointed out that the E2 sky looked a bit silly in this setting though, so the castle was put in water instead. After Vermil’s updates, the watery areas became more hilly.
