Seven puzzle rooms and two tutorial rooms built around carrion beetles; custom monsters that can only be killed by stabbing. Plus a little story.

Why not "Duncan the Graveguard"?

This is pretty neat and challenging hold!
This scripted monsters has great potential and Kallor really proved this; the first rooms are pretty easy so you can get confidential with this monster pretty fast but after a while it will become way more harder even because some rooms require a good strategy.
My favourite room is definitely 2N.
Overall this was really funny to play and if you want to try something slightly different then this hold is perfect!

When I first read the monster description ("can't be sliced, only stabbed"), I wondered whether a monster like this has any puzzle potential. Turns out it does, especially combined with its movement rules. And puzzles with it can be pretty devious.

I enjoyed every single room in this hold. My favorites were 2N 1W, 1N 1W (I didn't expect that beetles on orthosquares would be tricky to dispose of) and 1N 2W. The last puzzle room, though, felt uninspired compared to the rest, but still a good room.

My only complaint about this hold is that it's so short... :( It would be great to see more puzzles/holds with these beetles in future.
