As much as I'd like to work on my magic hold, I have a feeling it makes more sense to learn the ropes of RPG hold building now. So I've started making this.

It is pretty old school, at least regarding scripting (only some cut scenes, custom monsters and an inventory script), but there are some things that haven't been done often before but which I really like. The most obvious is that it's a no backtracking hold, since I really like the idea and DCoD worked out pretty well in my opinion. Other things are secreted as they might be a bit spoilery and you might want to discover them yourself first:

I'm not really sure if the direction in which I want to take the plot will work out, but I guess I'll just have to see. So far, it's a pretty standard "stalwarts have bigger mouths than swords" theme.

I must admit I'm not entirely sure how the whole RPG architecture process works, but it seems like a good idea to post what I've got so far now and wait for feedback and stats before designing the next level.

So yeah, I hope you like this more traditional effort. :)

Apart from the Gel puzzle I'm enjoying this. It's no good to add a hard-core execution puzzle with such a high reward in a RPG hold. One small potion (15 HP), would be a good reward. I don't want to solve that puzzle, but I seem to miss out on a lot of HP :(

I solved it once, and then saved the solution so I don't have to solve it again. ;)

Got to the end, but without the second accessory. I think I can improve to get there, but won't worry until there's more content.

My one complaint is making the first accessory your backpack means that either you get it, which is hard, or you're forced to find random places to use any others you get along the way. I understand the premise of making all the accessory challenges difficult, but I would suggest making just this one closer to the difficulty of the boss (and then maybe remove some of the health behind it).

Oh, and perhaps it should be "Feyglin's Descent"? Just asking in case that was what was intended.
