Simple hold with scripted elements and with small storyline.

At the moment this is Playtest version.

It seems you've modified official character portraits and tilesets. You'll need to ask Caravel for permission if you haven't already. Also, you'll need permission to use RPG music in a classic DROD hold.

Moving on,
First Level: 1N: Nice introduction! I wonder how many other testers just rushed in and died.
1N 1W: Not bad.
1W: The challenge was pretty easy.
1N 1E: I got stuck here. I can't think of any way to deal with all the roaches, even if I try drowning some. Maybe I'm missing something obvious?

You should make your holds Anyone Edit when they're on the Architecture board.

I really like the new potion element you've created! I foresee a lot of great puzzle potential with it! (Again, make sure you get permission from Caravel to modify the potion graphics, if you haven't already.)

Just some general comments:
First Level is totally fixed now. Puzzles are fun!
The Second Level's tutorial is blocked by a closed red door.
The monsters in Second Level move kinda oddly. They don't respond immediately when the player drinks another stealth potion. If you want to change that, go to the stealth potion's default character script, click on Options, and set the Processing Sequence to 1. That should make enemies be much more responsive.
I can't solve 1S1W. :( Could you give me some hints?
The hold isn't set to Anyone Edit yet.

Overall, I like this hold a lot more now! I can't wait to see where it goes! :)

The side effect of this change is that the monster will then become immobile at the turn the player steps on a stealth potion, which would then make 1S unsolvable.

I have saved demos if you want to see proof for the following two solutions I discovered on the Second Level:

On Once South, Once West, it is possible to clear the room without using the stealth potions.

On Once East, you can actually step on the force arrow trap and get away with clearing "trapped" roaches without being stuck yourself by moving diagonally after you have cleared all the roaches.

It would be interesting to take a look. :)

My computer doesn't let me create zip packages, so I will have to make separate posts for the two demos.

This is the demo for 1S1W.
