This level occupies the map slot MAP32. For other maps which occupy this slot, see Category:MAP32.

MAP32: Bitter Herb is the super-secret map of Requiem. It was designed by Adam Windsor, and uses the music track "Tides of War" by Jeremy Doyle. It is unusually small and short in comparison to most of the levels in the megawad.

Completing this level takes the player to MAP16: Escape from Chaos.


According to both the text file and the Requiem info pack:

Who knows where you are now ... somewhere deep in demons, you're sure. Hmm .. big courtyard, building on the far side ... no sign of anything yet .....
.... No, wait. Here they come. Right on time.
