A little hold I made as a palate cleanser while working on my main project, the sequel to Witherwood Castle. The entire idea is finding ways of getting others to kill monsters for you, or killing monsters without stabbing them with your sword.

In other words, a hold where you have to be a lazy, manipulative tyrant who doesn't do a bit of the work himself. It's a useful kill to have.

Put your swords away and get to it. An excellent hold and 9 for fun from me.

And mastered...

There were some rooms that I liked quite a bit, and some that seemed a bit random.

First the rooms I liked:

I'd agree with you about 1N1W, I've tried to learn from the mistake. 2S, I think I'd just gotten so frustrated with trying to get the idea to work that I did scripting rather than try to get it to work legitimately :)

This is a short 1-level hold where you'll not be getting your sword dirty as you'll be manipulating other elements to kill things for you.

I will admit that my first thought on seeing the entrance room was slightly negative as I've played many rooms of the trapped guard variety, but once past that there was a differing selection of rooms that could be tackled in any order (with the exception of 1S1W which is very similar to the entrance).

I would agree with the comment above on 1N1W but 2S was probably one of my favourite rooms and I also enjoyed 1S as well.

Overall this is a decent little hold - probably a bit too much for a beginner but well worth the effort otherwise.

My Verdict:

Difficulty: 6
Fun: 7
