The whole game is the blunder. It's not a singular event, it's Gunthro blundering about blindly for the entire duration.

Not trying to be the Voice of Canon here, but I think you got it.

The clue is that the story structure was copied from The Battle of Frogs and Mice. At one point, we were working on a game called Frogs and Mice that would be separate from the DROD world. That game got canceled, but Mike Rimer and others took the levels and brought them back to the Eighth.

Let's not forget *ALL* the Rasarun leaders getting themselves lost and/or captured in the second part. That's a pretty bad blunder right there.

And Gunthro blundering about, falling right into the hands of whoever was trying to stage the whole war.

I would do it but I had to suffer through a world where you had to do it all in one playthrough, the scrolls weren't a specific color, and you couldn't do any restoring.

I feel I should share that with you.

I don't want to get into another debate about this, but I will just say a few things about this issue.

In the original hold - you could always use restore to find and read the scrolls. The only issue was that the Spider cave could only actually be accessed once a couple of things had be done

If you restored to before the latter of these two requirements was achieved, the game recognised this as unachieved (true for most variables in DROD, with the exception of challenge completion and mastery).
Also, the colour of the scrolls made no difference, since there were no additional scrolls in the hold to confuse things.

In the current version, I am pretty sure that neither of those conditions in the secret text above is required, and now scrolls have to be coloured as there are a lot of new ones (e.g. challenges).
