Doom metal is generally written in minor keys (duh). That's it really, depending on what subgenre of doom you like... There are general BPM restrictions for certain subgenres of doom, but otherwise it's a pretty lenient genre, the focus is just on slooooow and mournful.

start with a polygon and put some windows in and scnery, make your maps interesting. Don't be scared to over use demons or shotgun zombies. Any good map has a boss, the Cyberdemon and Motherbrain motherfucker are the funnest to fight. Make them as hard as possible so hardened guys like me can play them. Put in a bfg and get ready fpr carnage!! ps plenty of ammo

Wow, at first that almost sounded like visual music theory.

*edit- You've read the Doom books haven't you?

A chord, a slow descension of a scale... a lower chord, even lower descension of a scale... Pretty basic but.. you're set!
