Quake1  

The House of Chthon is the seventh and last level of Dimension of the Doomed. It consists of a large pool of Lava surrounded by corridors and a series of catwalks. At its two opposing ends are a small balcony with the first Rune on it, and a deep shaft leading to the Exit Gate.

Suspended above the pool is a large device that can produce a powerful electrical discharge called an Electric Pylon. The Electric Pylons can be moved down, in order to zap the fearsome guardian that emerges from beneath the lava's surface, Chthon.

This is the last map of shareware Quake, and one of the shortest levels in the game. The player must collect the Rune and defeat Chthon to gain access to the portal and complete Episode 1.

Quick Level Completion

  • Take the Rune straight ahead.
  • Go around either side to the elevator.
  • Go to the left or right Floorplate at the top.
  • Run to the other Floorplate.
  • Run to the Floorplate in the middle.
  • Drop to the new platform below.
  • Drop into the hole in the middle to the exit room.

E1M7 - The House of Chthon

Take the Rune in front of the player and Chthon will rise out of the pool of Lava. Take either the left or right hand path around the pool and grab a 100 Health before riding the lift to the first floor. Activate the two Floorplates to either side of the arena to lower the Electric Pylons. Dodge Chthon's Lavaballs as you do this. Activate the Floorplate at the far end of the arena to activate the Electric Pylons and electrocute Chthon. Chthon will sink back into the Lava, and a platform will slide out on the first floor below the Floorplate that makes the Electric Pylons fire electricity. Fall down the hole in the wall next to the middle of the platforms to arrive next to the Exit Gate. As you step through, 12 Shamblers and 8 Zombies will die in a celebratory fashion that resembles confetti.

  • The 100 Health has been removed.
  • The Floorplates that lower the Electric Pylons are closer to the wall, forcing you to stop briefly or at least change direction in order to press them.
