Sadly, I only have 2 rooms complete, and no exit stairs. Enjoy the randomness!! :blush :blush

Well... it lives up to its description. Gotta start somewhere, right?

But honestly, I don't much like the hold, as admirable as your work is. Both riddles had obvious solutions, the decorations were random, the bridge went nowhere, and like you said, there's just not much content here. The first few problems are readily fixable. (If you're looking for better riddles -- or better ways to implement riddle answers -- look at A Quiet Place's titular level in 2N, 2N1E, or 2N1E. Link to a playthrough.)

The last problem simply requires time and effort put into your hold; easy enough, right? But from personal experience, adding to a hold becomes much harder if it's already on the Architecture board. It leads to feature creep, failed deadlines, and disappointment all around. If you genuinely want to keep working on this hold, I'd recommend not updating this topic until you have a finished product for testing. This is a great way to end your projects.

The bridge is to keep the center in focus. If yo keep going east, you will see the water get out of sync. I am wondering how far it takes to get them back in sync.
