There is no story in this hold, it's only about puzzles.

Big thanks to mxvladi for testing the hold and finding lots of US and also for helping me with some scripts in the hold.

Well I am a *long* way from finishing this hold but I am having a good time with some of the clever tricks. I like the simple lynchpin rooms in the JtRH, TCB, and GatEB areas.

EDIT: Wondering if this was the intended solution for JtRH elements, 2S1W.

I'm glad you're enjoying this :)

About 2S1W, yes that's the intended solution though it's slightly more diffficult but the main point is the same.

Ok so I mastered this a couple days ago and kinda forgot to write a post about it, but I guess this counts now.

All in all I really enjoyed this hold, mostly since the majority of the rooms were lynchpins and required some sort of clever approach. Some of the AE rooms less so, and a couple rooms were annoying trial and error, but for the most part it was fun lynchpins (TCB especially). I didn't have too much trouble, but there were some rooms that were definitely tough. I probably found some unintended solutions, but that's never that important.

It's worth playing, I gave it a 9 for fun and a 6.5 for brains.
