Here is my attempt to create a hold which isn't as insanely difficult as my previous offerings - and unlike my other holds, no knowledge of serpent timing is required. It is based on level 6 of KDD.

Enjoy!

This is a somewhat tricky hold - it's basically a set of 3 Constant Room Templates, each of which develops on a particular theme. The early rooms aren't too hard, but you'll need a good handle on monster manipulation skills in order to beat the later rooms.

You can probably complete this da rogu3 hold in only a day or two, instead of a month or two.

This is a wonderful little hold.

Just a few monsters in every room and a tricky solution.
Once you discovered the idea the solution is not very difficult.

Unfortunately, the idea is never obvious - except for mxvladi :)

2W drove me crazy - very elegant and very surprising - at least for me.


I really love these minimalistic holds.

What a pity it does not have more rooms :(

Very nice hold.

These rooms kicked my butt, in a nice way.

Elegant solutions for rooms that are not jam-packed w/ elements.

Finally conquered this toughie :)

The puzzles were well designed and mostly fun. Some of them drove me crazy, but after all there's nothing too cruel.

It is indeed unintended. I put the warning in the initial post so that people will automatically rule out solutions involving careful timing (which I think are much more difficult to pull off, so well done for finding that). If you're interested, the intended solution for 2W is to
