As a stalwart (called Redemption for now) gets lost in a dungeon, he finds a young boy under attack. He decides to help the boy.

This hold contains 8 levels of RPGing.

The first two levels are rather easy, the third is hard, and the fourth is hard if you're looking to get the optional stuff.

The four other levels are more based on choice making, as I had to try many times to get it right. Enjoy! :)

Happy RPGing! :)

EDIT: Fixes were made, scenery was added... enjoy v1.1!
EDIT The 2nd: Four new levels were made! Also, some glitches were fixed... and the blacksmith is gone. :(

Very nice hold. The boss battle in Level 2 really shows off what the game is capable of. Only one bug this far. When striking the boss for the first time, and then moving west, you get stuck in a cutscene.

I agree! Good job Jeff...

I loved the boss battle

Spider Steam: 1S 1W: Slight bug here. South room needs a yellow key, otherwise you won´t be able to make it to the west room.

Spider Steam: 1N: A slight advantage when using this room. 160 HP at the end of level by using this room and 144 by not using it.

The cutscene in The First Trial freezes if you had killed the W-most wraithwing first (and so are standing E of Halph).

Must say, I finished it without upgrading, with lots of HP left. Upgrading makes it easier though.

EDIT: Got the 2 green keys without engaging any spawned mud babies. You can achieve this by clever cutting in the west/most mud room.

EDIT2: Bug when choosing the sword upgrade on the 4th level. Cutscene gets stuck.

Yes, completing it without upgrading was what I did the first time too. My point was that the potion in that room is actually superfluous if you do it right (and I've just played through the level again without taking the potion to prove it), so when I played it I had enough HP to kill the antlions without getting that potion.

Bug: When purchasing a new weapon on level 4, the cutscene freezes, at least for me.

Note: You may want to add background music to your rooms. sometimes it just stops and the next 4-5 rooms don't have music, until you change level, another music starts playing or you go to the menu and back.

New version was uploaded!

Insane: Maybe you have the demo DROD RPG. It's a common bug in that version of the game.

I just have one problem with this hold. For all the choices that you make there is little difference in the outcome. For example, in the first two levels there is almost no way to do it badly. You can't chose attack over defense, health over keys, or any other kind of choice. The third level is done well.

The level 2 boss cutscene freezes for me before it even starts.

The First Trial: Terrible. No challenge at all. You have no choices.
Winding passages: Same thing.
Spider Steam: This level was good, even if the premise was fairly annoying. It still wasn't hard, but at least it made you think.
Grassy Flow: Not too bad. The room with the pressure plate under mud is bad, as you can't see under it. Add a vision token.

General comments:
Doors that require all monsters in the room to be destroyed are bad! It doesn't fit in DROD: RPG. You should stop doing that, and get other people to stop as well. It's easy to force people to kill something (force them to go past it in a hall), and if you can't, how does it increase the puzzle? Please, please, in your next hold, don't use them.

Well, I haven't used any of these doors in the later levels. However, I think that the first two levels weren't the best either, as they were my first levels. Maybe I should revamp them... -_-

I have just finished the first version of this hold and really enjoyed it. I've just noticed that you've uploaded a new version or five...

I will try to complete it now.

Your hold really improved after the first two levels but I agree with Someone Else that the doors that require all the monsters to be killed isn't very good.
