Holds Download

So, what are holds, you ask, with a slightly pointed expression? Good question!

A hold is a set of levels, like King Dugan's Dungeon, that represent a complete DROD dungeon. A couple are made by the designers of DROD, but most are made by DROD players, and a fair few are even better than King Dugan's! (Naturally, we kidnapped the designers.) You can make your own hold to play yourself, with time and effort, but then you'd know all the solutions, which does get in the way of the fun a bit.

The holds you see below have been uploaded to CaravelNet by members for other fans to play - if you'd like to try one out, just click on the hold's name to download it, and then select the "Change Location" menu option in DROD, then "Import".

The difficulty of a hold, judged by the players, is represented by how many brains it has. The (probably more important) overall 'fun' rating is represented by the yellow bar. More details can be found by following the "Discuss" link, which opens in a new window. You can sort the table by clicking on the columns (clicking on the same one again will sort it by descending order). Clicking on it several times might be fun if you're bored.

If you're building a hold of your own, stop by the Architect forum where there are lots of helpful people that want to help you get the kinks out of your hold and make sure it's ready for prime-time.

If you haven't registered, you might want to. Because, you know, we like new people, and we kinda need people to have registered to post... yeah. (The worst that will happen is that you'll occasionally get CaravelNet news, but you can opt out of that in your profile.)
