My advice is try and talk to people who stand out from the crowd

I found the Undercity by looking through the room images on this very website and looking for green citizens, as they refer to scripted elements, and then seeking them out.

Hmmm . . . I think after finishing the Pirates' Hideout I'm supposed to come back to this level and do something, but I don't recall that one of the many cryptic characters actually told me what. Am I on the right track, or am I supposed to move forward somehow?

Thanks -

Um . . . sorta. Sounds like I need to wander back through the City, and the Library, and so forth . . . I started this game about a month ago and have no idea exactly where Beethro has been.

I'm having trouble with this 'hunt' - I think I remember speaking to 2 people (and no-one in 3N2W or 3N3W will tell me anything more), but I can't remember the second hint (I wasn't taking too much notice the first time through :( ), so I'm stuck on the third person. The 'MASSIVE UBERSPOILER' square doesn't work for me yet though, so I've not accidentally found them, as far as I know.

Help - thanks!

Edit: Never mind, I got it after a restore to hear the hints again :)

This is my second visit to the city after completing Pirate's Hideout. I met the 3 people, found the secret passage and found 1N5W. I understand that you can't get thru the gates until after you complete all levels. So what do I do next? How do I get out of this level. There is no one to open the gates at 3N3W. I'm so confused that I don't even know which room to go to to look for some advice; so, I apologize if this is a repeat question. Please help me!!!

After completing Pirate's Hideout, there are more puzzle levels to find. Remember that you need to walk there; don't use restore, or you may accidentally go back to a time before you completed Pirate's Hideout.

When you return to the City after completing Pirate's Hideout, the first place you should go is:

After that, you should then return to:

I have now wandered through the City more times than I can remember and I just can't find the way to get down the stairs in 3N 3W, presumably to the Archival Catacombs. Can someone please take pity on me. :? :weep

I've been to the Archivists' Lobby uncountable times on this journey but, from when I played The City Beneath last year, I seem to remember needing a pass to get in and I don't have one. I've obviously missed some necessary move. And I guess I'll eventually arrive in The Rooted Hub or do I need more help with that too? I'm feeling quite dopey. Please put me out of my misery.

I have entered the lobby enough times to stand on each tile on the second row from the guy with the purple hat and each time I've been welcomed — but no matter where I stand after that, nothing further happens. I've gone across to the orb to release the gate but as I don't have a sword nothing happens there either. Have I lost my sword somewhere along the way perhaps? :glasses

Sorry for taking so long to reply but I have finally understood what's wrong(haven't played TCB for ages so forgot most of things)

Thank you so much for getting back to me – I went on to other holds instead. But I've now reverted to TCB, went back to 5N 3W and I can't find the house and there's no–one there, let alone a slayer. What should I do next. Perhaps I should begin TCB again.

Check if you really arrived in 5N 3W and not, say, 5N 3E or something.

5N 3W looks like this:

Thanks for your help. You're never really alone when you play DROD are you? Looking at your screen shot I realise I should be in the NE corner of this room so it's back to the drawing board – I haven't done 6N2W! :no

Story progression. You'll get it at a certain point and it's impossible to miss.
