To get hold published on cnet, it needs to be rated at least once.

Since someone rated this hold now, restart DROD and it should work.

Allright, can someone explain me how topscore for wilderness: 1N 2W is possible?

There is cutscene in the room which makes Beethro wait for about 70 turns. I've checked the scripting - the event triggering the cutscene is gel growth.

In the topscore demo, however, there is no cutscene. How is that possible?(gel mother wasn't killed before gel grew)

The thing I want to know: is that topscore possible to tie/beat in current version? Maybe that room had no cutscene in beta version of hold?

What can you expect from this hold? More of the same from previous war holds - lots of monsters, mimics, potions, scripting and scrolls, although no ducks or disturbing images are present either.

Things I liked:

The little sound effects
Some of the rooms have non-hoard puzzles which makes a change

Things I disliked:

A few too many of the "room full of roach queens and mimics" variety.
Some unintuitive scripting - special mention to wilderness: 4N2W for a 500 move cut scene that repeats everytime you enter the room - even after you clear it!

In the end, this is a war hold and it doesn't try and pretend to be anything else - it doesn't have to be about lynchpins all the time...

My verdict:

Difficulty: 5
Fun: 6
