This is a work in progress. I would really like suggestions, though telling me more smiting won't help.

I would also like some quest ideas as well as ideas for more dungeons that you can play through and solve quests in. Otherwise, test my hold and tell me what you think.

Okay, I feel that the hold is pretty much done but i really want people's feedback. This feedback will determine if this is the final version to be submitted or that somewhere something is really missing.

So, I played through the hold, and I think you have a good start. I have a question though: I think I've finished all the rooms I can reach, but I can't figure out where to go to deal with the pirate problem so I can take the voyage to Tueno. There don't seem to be any jobs left for me to do, and I don't see any way to end the hold, either.

I also have a few comments about rooms and hold structure ideas that could be polished further, which are included in the attached text file.

The empire 2E seems to be impossible, unless there's some way to switch to a different player role. The room doesn't have to be cleared, but I assume it's intended to be.

Forest 1S struck me as a little unfair. You kill the monsters, only to find out that the scripting won't allow you to clear the room.

The pipes 1S can be cleared in fewer than 10 moves, if you enter from the south. That's okay, but be aware that rooms like this can be annoying to players who compete for good scores on CaravelNet.

This can be a very short hold, if you happen to choose the right path. By my count, only six rooms actually have to be cleared.

I don't understand the ending text when it seems to ponder whether there's a way to conquer the hold before you master it. You always have to conquer a hold in order to master it.

I don't know if you care about typos and spelling errors:

City - Entrance: recomend -> recommend

Empire - Entrance: gaurd -> guard

Stalwart Fortress - Entrance: estimante -> estimate, finish of -> finish off

I was just about to update when I found the reply. I have fixed the spelling, and I have also added the idea of quests to the description as well as to a scroll in forest: the entrance as well as a scroll in forest: 1s pointing out where you get your first quest.
There are also two new rooms in the grotto and the count of rooms required to finish the hold is at least 10. also the speculation at the end is for players who mastered the hold to complete it

Well, I truly feel that this hold is done. I might do a more conventional hold and wait on the sequel. So I have submitted
