Welcome to the Hold-Junkyard!

If you take a quick look at the architecture board index list, you'll notice that it's a quite long list. In fact a great part of the holds posted in this board are or seem to be abandoned. Many of these abandoned holds contain a lot of good ideas. It's a pity that they are just lying here and rust.

So I had the idea of creating a Hold-Junkyard. Architects can post their abandoned holds here and we will recycle it and use it for a hold compilation. This compilation will then contain selected rooms/ideas/story components/puzzles of the abandoned holds. It will be called.... "Junkyard's Selection" (JS). Junkyard's Selections will appear between 2 and 4 times a year.

Do you have an abandoned hold?

Post it here and we will use your work together with the work of other authors! Just post it here with a "Public Domain" licence and with "Anyone Edit" premissions.
You'll be credited in the hold compilation of course and may also get a few rank points from the recycling team.

Do you want to be part of the recycling team?

Post here and you'll be in! As soon as there are enough holds dumped, I will create a private Beta board and invite you.

Deadline for submitting holds

You can submit your abandoned holds for the first "Junkyard's Selection until 31th May 2007. If we don't have 5 or more holds then, we'll expand the deadline.

Here's my first hold, called Arctic Plight. It has some pretty good puzzles in it, but it never made it to Architecture.

Edit: I'll have to go dig up some old holds from my KDD files. (This one is from my JtRH file.

I might revive Sudoken's Dungeon, actually, so no need to touch it.

The trouble is that many abandoned holds are by abandoned architects.

Decoy Cave. A unique idea, but it never made it to Architecture. I still might use this idea in one of my upcoming holds. But still, recycling is good for the world. :P

You know, I think the Super V's Dungon is a bit to big for this compilation. But your tutorial should work out fine.

I guess I can contribute with Dungeon2. It's already on the Architecture board but I'll upload it here again. Feel free to do whatever you want with it.

Here's my hold that's been sitting in a partially-completed state for ages... I can't remember what I was planning on doing with it, unfortunately, though I think I may have put it on hold because I had a character I wanted to have run around backwards... may as well put it up here so that we can make use of the rooms/floors I created, at least.



Also, I want in on the team.

Would it bother anyone if I took care of SuperV's tutorial?

And I would also like to be part of the recyling team... if possible, that part of the team that does the finishing touches.

I believe the deadline is over, if you still wish to continue the project. :)

Welcome back to the Hold-Junkyard!

After the solid sucess of the last project "JYS - First Contact" it's now time again to gather the scraps for the next JYS.

Do you have an abandoned hold?

Post it here and we will use your work together with the work of other authors! Just post it here with a "Public Domain" licence and with "Anyone Edit" premissions.
You'll be credited in the hold compilation of course and may also get a few rank points.

Deadline for submitting holds

You can submit your abandoned holds for the second "Junkyard's Selection until 20th December 2007. If we don't have 5 or more holds then, we'll expand the deadline.
