Ok, I've tried this room enough times to know that there is some specific trigger to release the demons, but I can't do it reliably.

I'm perfectly happy at this point to battle them, IF I can get them released.

Any clues?

Thanks,

BobKberg

It happens on a specific turn. Just prepare the trapdoors and then wait.

Hi Dragon,

Thanks for your reply, but the number of moves is not sufficient to trigger the release of the goblins. There is something else required.

Based on what I've seen, there seems to be a requirement for both the number of moves AND certain specific square(s).

I'll keep experimenting though.

Regards,

Bob

It should just be time? There are character mimics on the darkened squares. The top one turns, when it completes a full circuit the middle one turns, then when that one completes a full circuit the bottom one turns. And the orb that releases the goblins is south of the bottom one, which starts facing southwest.

I can't actually check the scripting due to the hold settings, though. But as far as I can tell it should just be turn count.

Edit: Just tested by waiting at the entrance and the doors eventually opened. You can complete the room without stepping on the trapdoors at all.

Hi Dragon,

Thanks! I was spending time making intricate patterns in the trapdoors and didn't realize how many turns I'd used.

Regards,

Bob
