"Prieth Callas was a hard, cruel man, fond of torturing his enemies before sending them to their deaths. He raised creatures of great size and ferocity, setting them against his prisoners in arenas of his own creation. Grendelkeep is the last of his diabolical constructions, left to fall into ruin after Callas was dragged from the battlements by his own men and fed to the creatures he bred in the dark kennels below. The rain has washed away the blood, but the evil that bred here has left a much deeper stain."
Map description

DM-DE-GrendelKeep (whose full name is Grendelkeep) is a map appearing in Unreal Tournament 2003 and Unreal Tournament 2004 . It comes with the UT2003 DE Bonus Pack.



Map description Edit

An ancient castle in ruins during a rainstorm. It contains a big, multi-story area at the east, the Great Amp Hall. It's connected at mid-level to the Great Room via a small corridor, the Great Room Hall. Above this area there's a hall, Upper Rocket Hall. At north and south, the Great Amp Hall is connected to these areas via corridors. One of these, the Mini Hall, is located south of the map, and connects to the upper bridge over the Great Room and the upper level of the Great Tower, located at the southwest of the map and comprised of two corridors in the upper and lower level, and a curved staircase uniting both. The northwest area in the upper level is the Sniper Nest, and, as expected, it houses the Lightning Gun. From the lower level of the Great Tower to the Great Amp Hall there's a corridor, also called Great Room Hall. Finally, northwest of the map, but in the lower level, there's another corridor, the Lower Flak Hall.

Tips and tricks Edit

  • The platform in the Great Hall allows you to reach the upper level ledge and the bridge by lift-jumping, allowing you to bypass the Super Shield area and the stairs to it.
  • A properly placed Shield Jump allows you to reach the Double Damage without having to go through the Upper Rocket Room. Wall jumps and boost jumps from the platform area also allows you to reach it while avoiding the Adrenaline corridor.
