I'm starting to think there's something a bit wrong with me, always trying to improve on what already exists instead of doing my own stuff. Oh, well. I threw this together, and now you get to have it.

This is the Twenty-Fifth level of KDD, using only the hard-coded 'Neather. However, through liberal use of the select tile feature in the "speech" command, I have given him all the speech cues I know about from the 2.0 version.

Edit: This version of the hold was meant to be put in a separate post, but I had a stupid fumble with the post submission process. The following is what that post would have said.

I should probably give some credit for the peices I put together to make the 'Neather's portrait.

The 'Neather himself was taken from the wiki, and I think they pulled that from the Webfoot Drod site.

The background is part of a preview screennshot for DROD 3D.

Edit: Added a slightly unreliable achievement for killing him early.

That's right, I'm still not letting this go, but this time, it's not just for my own delusions of artistic-ness.

From what I understand, community consensus is that a player should never have to go to the restore screen to get themselves unstuck. So I made some additions. These scripted instances of the 'Neather will let you through the rooms that are impossible without him if they're already clean. There's also something that generates a spider in an unreachable part of 1S if he escapes to the north. You should be able to chase him through the loop an indefinite number of times.

There's a second shot of him on the Architect's Edition ending:

I know that, but if you try to make it into a portrait, part of the stab wound is in frame. It just didn't seem right to have that visible when he's still in good health.
