Nice hold, however, I got stuck in 1S1E. After completing the room, I went east to 1S2E (using upper and middle path), which I hadn't completed, and that resulted in me getting stuck behind a yellow door when going back, which led to a restore.

There's probably a room (or two, since you've only got 98%) with no monsters in it that you haven't visited yet. Loony Labyrinth is a 10x10 square, so it should be easy to tell from the minimap what you missed.

You won't have to replay the whole hold. You must just have missed a room or two. I'm sure you did play all of them, but what could have happened is that you played a room, then restored to some point where that room is unconquered, and forgot to play it again. Look carefully at the map on the restore screen. All rooms should be white. (More exactly, floor tiles should be white.) The rooms you missed will be red, or shaded out (it will look kind of green and brown).

There is a bug in the calculation of the explored status in the latest version of the 2.0.15 patch, see here; http://forum.caravelgames.com/viewtopic.php?TopicID=12999.

When you are looking on the mini-map for rooms you may have missed, look out for rooms like 1N1W which is made up mostly of walls and trapdoors. It's harder to see whether these are completed.

If you are really stuck, post a screenshot of your minimap and I'll have a look to see what you missed. (or try comparing your minimap to the map in the Hints forum)

As for the hold, I completed it last night. It was fun with some fun rooms, but it did have one major downpoint. When I was down to a few rooms left, I didn't like having to hunt around to try to find my way into them. For example, it took me five minutes to get into 1N1W to kill a brain in a few seconds.
There was some good stuff here too, specially the two mazes which were small enough to be fun.

Now, onto the next challenge....

Steve.

If you are on a windows PC, double click on the minimap while in DROD so you can see the full map, then press the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard.

Open an image application and paste the results. Save as something.jpg and attach to a post here. If you know how, you could crop the image so it only includes the minimap to reduce the image size, but it isn't important.

Due to the nature of some of the rooms in this hold, the diffence could be very small. It shouldn't take too long to have a quick run through all the rooms in game as a last resort.

Steve.

A very entertaining hold. It's nice to note that several rooms can be solved in fairly different ways of varying difficulty.

Most puzzles are, with a few exceptions, fairly easy. There are a couple of more painful ones hidden in there, though.

I give it an 8, with 4 brains.

Just finished this hold and enjoyed it. Gave it 5 brains for a medium difficulty. And a seven for fun - you lost a point for that last room trying to find the orb that let me to the stairs. sigh.

On the contrary I raised up the vote from 6 to 7 because of that last room. :P

I seem to be stuck in the western section of the hold. In particular, the rooms

3s 6w
1s 3w
1s 2w
2n 2w
2n 3w
2n 4w
2n 6w

are uncleared and prevent me from leaving.

This was a very interesting hold. Nothing was particularly difficult, and if you like rooms that can only be solved from one entrance and enjoy trying to figure out how to get to that entrance, I think you'll like this hold.

The puzzles themselves have a variety of different ideas, most of which are interesting. Exploration aspect was also satisfying, although if you hate mazes in general it's probably best to stay away.

That being said, the maze aspect only really comes up when you're trying to hunt down those last few rooms to finish the hold. As long as you clear as you go, most of this hold is just fun little puzzles.
