This hold is set after Beethro's adventures in King Dugan's Dungeon, but before he journeyed to Rooted Hold.

As such he has not yet encountered any of the elements in JtRH or TCB and this hold only uses simpler AE elements, plus one new one.

There are two paths to play, one of which has easier room variants for more novice players.

This hold was intended to be used with the volcano style (created by vylycyn) and original (3.0) pressure plates. It looks nicer that way.

Thanks to the beta-testers: Blondbeard, BoyBlue, Chaco, mxvladi.

This hold has some very cool puzzles, mostly lynchpin-based but also some manipulation ones.

You don't have to solve hardest puzzles if you want to just conquer the hold. If you want to master it, however, you'll need to solve Empirical Research.

Except Empirical Research(and secret rooms), puzzles are quite easy.

My favourite rooms are: Empirical Research entrance, 1N 2W, 1N 1W and secret in "A Demonstration"

This is another good hold by Jacob, with quite a few nice rooms.

One word to the wise: If you enjoy solving harder puzzles, you should avoid the 'easier' level before you finish the main level. The easier level presents very similar puzzles, and understanding the solutions to those rooms makes the harder rooms a lot easier. (Not *easy*, mind you.)

I give this hold an 8 for fun and 7 brains of difficulty.

Josh
