This is a fairly short and easy, and hopefully fun, hold.

Inspired by Tar Ballroom it demonstrates the interaction of serpents and brained monsters of various types.

Thanks to Ezlo, Rabscuttle and RoboBob3000 for their help with beta testing.

I really liked this hold in beta, I doubt it changed much, so I'm going to give it 6.5 brains and 7 rating now, and double check later.

If you try to insert a drod image of a room from this level, the image of the level looks wrong. However, the room comes out okay.

Great little hold. Had me stuck a few times (esp the goblins).
Excellent intro to Tar Ballroom too...

This is a fine set of rooms. I think it is an excellent complement to Tar Ballroom -

The master room is awesome.

I enjoyed this hold. It seemed that things could be solved after a little playing around usually.

I liked 1W because with a little thought you could reason what needed to be done. The secret room with the assortment of monsters was my favorite room. Very nice!

And yes, the master room was very cute.

Mastered this hold. (Haven't been able to beat the room behind the master wall, but have had fun trying.)

Very well put-together, with good puzzles. I didn't much care for 2E, as the trapdoors meant I had to keep trying the same thing over and over again (OK, I was also frustrated because I solved the hard part and then messed up and had to go back and redo the hard part...and it took me forever.)

But a very enjoyable hold, and it got me ready to go back and tackle Tar Ballroom.

I give this hold a 9 with 6.5 brains of difficulty.

Keep up the good work!

Josh

I'll be honest. I didn't really like this hold. Maybe it was because I didn't always understand what I was doing and was just moving semi-randomly to make something happen. But I found it pretty tedious. It is well-designed to do what it's trying to do. So: good execution, lousy concept.

And the master room was cool, but it didn't interest me enough to make sure I finished it - either I would have to spend a lot of time working it all out, or just keep trying stuff until I got lucky.
