Sorry, but how do you end the hold using an NPC? I can find the "Wait until room conquered command", but where's the End Hold command?

"Go to level entrance" can be set to "(End Hold)".

Do waterskipper nests count as monsters?

Yes.

P.S. Tried your hold, calamarain! Really good, made me think, but I conquered it. Keep submissions coming!

I think I may be bending a couple of the rules here, let me know if this still fits the contest.

That's an evil little room :P I turned on the lights in the editor, and I still can't solve it even with illumination!

It's not dead... I'm just waiting for some more submissions, even if I wrote a ending date in the first post. I thought more submission were coming.

The time left says "seven days".

Seven days from when? Now?

I might actually submit something if you'd clarify when the actual deadline is.

That's very good! But it breaks the rules :

2) You can't remove already placed elements.
3) You can't create elements over pre-placed ones (excluding floor), except monsters.

You deleted the walls to make a tunnel and a black door if I'm exact. Fix it and then repost it :)

As far as I can tell, this entry seems to be valid.

Please tell me if I messed up anywhere, vittro.

Anyway, I think the idea of making a room based off of a template is a very good idea, and I certainly enjoyed the process of figuring out exactly what was possible and what wasn't.

Chaco 1: Very clever room. I was convinced it was impossible for quite a while. I had thought there was no real way to take advantage of being surrounded by water, but you found a way and made a very good room. :thumbsup

Chaco 2: Luckily for me I saw the trick fairly quickly... but I could easily have gotten stuck there for a while. I liked your first entry a little better, but this was a close second.

Roach Strangler 1: Your room was a bit random, but still fun. Not sure if all of the decoy were part of an intended solution, but I didn't need a couple of them.

RS 2: Much better, IMO. All of the clones were necessary, I think, and thought was definitely needed to get the order correct.

Calamarain: Neat idea... I'm just not really a orb puzzle fan, so it wasn't really my cup of tea.

Okay, here's my second entry. Although I've used this lynchpin before in Chaco's Hold, the main point I'm making here is that force arrows can be used as walls.
