Really cool hold! I like what I've seen so far a lot. It must have taken ages to script, too! Kudos.

On a side note is it possible for an admin to make a general H&S topic which would come up on any H&S search for any room in this hold? That way futher strategy disscussion could be moved there.
I believe that we've always used the Holds thread for that.

Access to Piedyl is NOT specifically dependent on the Goblin King quest or on the Brainy Roach quest. You need to gain one renown point for access to Piedyl. There is another way to get that point.

Yeah, Mxvladi said she was a thief, so that must be the more sensible answer to Mxvladi's confusion about the quests. Btw, a tip while playing the game, it would save quite a bit of money to buy the infinite healing at the entrance room of the town before piedyl level

How to pay 500 coins to the blacksmith?

Edit: Hey, look at the date of my post and the previous one! :fun

Edit 2: Some other questions.
1) I robbed jewel shop in Piedyl, but I got trapped with the guards in other building! What to do?
2) In Piedyl mines, where are the gems?
3) Where's the wizard?

Edit 3: OK, I've managed out that you have to bring a speed essence and a bright sword. But where's the speed essence?

And also:
4) How can I steal money in Fegundos' House?

There is, but it leads to a tunnel which can't get me anywhere!
(edit: why was so stupid! I can move diagonally!)

The third section? What's it?
(edit: I found the wizard! Never mind!)

And I also realised that speed essence is in the strong roach... :(
(edit: and defeated this roach! :D)

And also some other questions:
1) Does being a smitemaster give something or it's just for 'start job'?
2) What do harmless roaches, wubbas, pet cages and pet food give me?

Edit again: I killed the rock golem, found a fragment of green orb, robbed the bank, found a scroll, and many more, but what do I have to do to finish the game? :~(

So this is my last question: I can't even find a monster to kill it. I can't even find a quest to complete.

What is the goal? What do I have to do to finish the hold?

What's that? Nobody has finished this hold?
It's too hard to find hints in H&S for an RPG.

I can't see the room, but I understood what was it. Piedyl?

Edit: Yes, I finished the hold. Final score:

A really good and fun hold, although I thought it would be longer ;)
Luckily I managed to get all the quest for the first try, and my final score was 12,678,120 :w00t.
I only used the j-sword after I completed the first quest, I don't think you really need anything else. As for the rock golem I used:

Hmm..yeah, I didn't try that...I guessed golems are not exactly "dark" or "fire" creatures, well this makes ending the game much easier ;)

I think they count as dark creatures. I used magic too.

I struggled a bit with this...

I knew of it and it's reputation long before I actually played through it so it's possible I built it up more in my head.

It's clear that the scripting work in creating this is incredible but the main issue I found was a lack of information and guidance at times. Given the limitations of the game engine this is understandable.

Although I dabble in the occasional RPG they are generally a lot more "hand-holdie" than this - this puts me more in mind of older RPGs like the early Ultima games and I never really played those kind of games at the time.

In terms of mechanics, I found the battles to be a bit clunky although I don't think you really need to grind too much in the hunting grounds to finish the hold.

Ultimately, this is a very impressive hold, if maybe not for everyone, and I felt a sense of accomplishment at finishing it.

Difficulty: 5
Fun: 6
