Beethro is paying off a favor to a friend by checking on his missing wife in the abandoned Temple of Kurath. Of course, things turn difficult. Luckily, Beethro was cynical enough to have brought his sword.

Nice various puzzles with a fun story to tie it all together.

Many of the puzzles are unique, and are not too difficult...although I would say that the average difficulty is about equal to Dugan's. However, I really like the storyline...in fact, I really wish that I had played this hold through before I made Treasure Hunt because there are several parallels between the two holds.

I highly recommend this hold...it's one of the few that even when I got frustrated with a room I just kept playing so I could see what happened next instead of putting it aside for a while.

Game on,

That's really what it's like with a lot of the holds I play (especially Dugan's)

I liked it
especially the underground city
I like rooms where you have to figure out the starting point for yourself like that

Do you make a lot of mistakes like your Training Grounds Demo?
It was quite a quick death :|
