3. MAP DESCRIPTION
================================================================

**** NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR **************************************
This is my first foray into mapping, no doubt it includes
some newbie mistakes, but I must say that I have learned a
lot from the process of creating this map, and no doubt would
have done things much differently if I had known everything I
know now when I started the map. Nonetheless I think that it
can be a very fun and engaging map, and hopefully you will think
so too. I encourage you to send me feedback or to get in touch
with me somehow to give me your ideas / complaints / suggestions
/ whatever. Once again THANK YOU for playing my map hopefully
it provides an enjoyable experience for ya :)
****************************************************************

See bh_castlemertz.txt (map briefing) for scoring/play info

**there are 2 secret rooms with some pretty useless stuff in
them, to see where they are located, go spectator and look at
the overview image, their are buttons to open the doors, I leave
them for you to find (both are in the yard area between bases)
Also for your information, since this is such a small map,
only scouts and medics are given secondary grenades, as to keep
it from becoming a total spam-fest. Also, to curb any ideas
people get about going offensive HW, I have a little 'surprise'
for them at midfield.
