Ok, time for the voting people.

Unfortunately I've been on holidays for this contest, which means I've been unable to check the entries before hand. Please, contact the author if you feel that there is a bug, large or small, in their level set.

As for voting, focus on the:
Visuals.
Not artwork, but in terms of effects, design, lighting, layout, variety and atmosphere.
Gameplay.
One thing I really loved about DROD RPG was that there was a huge amount of choice. Usually, this either dumbs down the content, in order to make each choice equally viable, or makes it tedious while you try to pick out the right path through a range of variables. DROD RPG did neither, instead offering a fogiving journey that kept challenging you. Ideally, the gameplay in the holds should be the same. A sign of good gameplay is one that keeps you thinking about it.
Entertainment.
Very subjective, but consider how much joy a level set gave you.
Bonus points for good intergration of Sand Tar.
Remember, Architects, to give youself 10, and everyone else a fair score. Also, if you would annouce how you feel towards a complitation including your level set would be appreciated.

Scroll down for entries.

Can you explain this a little more to me by PM or Secret. I tried this as you said and had no issue. I must be missing something you did.

Non-Spoiler Information: In my entry "The Drain" room 3N9E do not pick-up the health potion it has an error. If you pick it up you will be locked into a cut-scene with no exit. Good thing you don't need that health potion.

I added some time to the poll to make it expire in 2009 rather than 2008.

I have fixed the issues raised by Nuntar in this attached hold. It is not the contest entry but if you want to play it without the problems Nuntar points out and judge it with those issues in mind than you can play this hold. Again, judge me on the original hold.

The original hold is playable and winable even with the issues Nuntar raises. I encourage you to use a save or use your backbutton if you get stuck with this potion issue. You do not need this potion to succeed.

Gah! Imperial Santa's Diversion killed my DROD! Whenever I try to play or change level set, it crashes! I think that it might have something to do with killing something as the last move in a scene showed when you enter the hold select menu...

EDIT: I managed to delete it, and it's all good now. I might test that bug later, but I need to go now.

EDIT 2: Nope, I have no idea what caused it.
