The 'Neatherhood is a fairly short hold where the numbers remain small and the focus is on collecting resources at the right time. With no equipment and the item multiplier remaining at 1 throughout the hold, you will need everything you can get to beat the odds and defeat the big bad.

Thanks to all who tested and I hope you enjoy the hold!

Note: There are no hot tiles, aumtlich beams or greckle doublers in this hold.

This is a nice hold, not too difficult. Bonus points for the cute frame story.

So I've finally mastered this hold the other night, and it's really good. I haven't played a lot of RPG holds, but I wouldn't be surprised if this was the best-balanced hold released so far, which might be connected to the fact that the architect is one of the best RPG optimizers out there, so he must know how to create interesting choices.

This hold is small and about the right difficulty for casual players like me. It consists of four different areas connected by a central corridor. All of these areas have their own set of custom monsters and a each of them a very unique but clever layout.

Plus, the story, though it's more or less just an excuse plot, is really funny thanks to the framing device.

I'd love to see more RPG holds like this :)

(Fun fact: I decided to give this hold another go because I wanted to figure out how the custom brains work. Turns out you just have to give them brain appearance. D'oh! Totally worth it, though)
