This is a one-room hold, featuring an open layout with puzzles that involve a lot of planning ahead and various advanced tricks.

Inspired by entries to the unofficial contest Golbeno's Security System, The Room of Humility and other complex rooms like the postmastery challenge in Putting the Pieces Together.

Thanks to blorx1, Dragon Fogel and Chaco for playtesting. Much fine-tuning was made based on their feedback.

A word of warning: This room is very difficult. I was able to work out the overall process in testing, but there were a couple of steps I never managed to figure out how to execute.

Nonetheless, there are some cool evil tricks here and if you like seeing those sorts of things in action, definitely check this one-room monstrosity out.

When Doom rates a hold 10 brains...

Solved, and I agree wholeheartedly with the 10 brains rating.

The part of the solution I was dreading turned out to be not quite as bad as it seemed. Still, this room is very demanding - although some of the nastier parts were made more lenient during testing.

Working out the process is very hard - and the execution isn't simple either. I didn't enjoy this quite as much as puzzling through the Room of Humility, but it was still very satisfying to solve.

Good luck to anyone else who attempts it.

I haven't solved it, but I have made a lare number of key insights. This room is harder than anything I have solved before. That includes the Room of Humility, which is super hard in its own right.

An update was pushed through that moves the shallow water to fix a major skip (thanks to IQubic and Dragon Fogel).

Terribly sorry for any inconvenience.
