icon King Dugan's Alternate Reality (+5)  
King Dugan's Dungeon is the very first DROD hold, and set the stage for all later DROD installments. Over 25 levels, it introduced many of the classic DROD elements - roaches, orbs and goblins to name just a few. But what if it had introduced an additional element? What if something from the future was instead introduced in the past? In this contest, you will have the chance to reshape history! (But not actually. We don't want to create some kind of DRODpoint paradox and unravel time.)

The aim of this content is to create a level from an 'alternate reality' King Dugan's Dungeon. To do so, you'll pick something from a later version of DROD, and use it with other elements present in KDD to peer into another world. To keep things simple, you'll only pick one idea to introduce ahead of schedule, but some ideas come with multiple elements.

Rules

1. You may only use elements that were present in the original King Dugan's Dungeon, plus either a single element or a group of elements from the set of restricted elements.
2. You may not create forbidden elements via the Generate Entity, Build and Build Marker script commands.
3. You can't change the player role.
4. Your level has to be masterable.
5. Your level has to not break any forum rules.
6. Checkpoints are allowed.
7. As funny as I'm sure it would be, you can't just submit a level from KDD with one element swapped with another.
8. Your level can have a maximum of 15 rooms.
9. You may submit up to three entries. Each one should be in a different hold.

Scripting

Don't.

Okay, you can use non-visible NPCs to award challenges and make characters speak. You may also place build markers if an element set allows it.

Unrestricted elements

You can use these elements as much as you want. While a few are not 1.0 elements, they are functionally identical to actual 1.0 elements or only provide cosmetic value, so they get in.

Restricted Elements

To create your alternate timeline, you'll need to add something that wasn't in the original King Dugan's Dungeon. Of course, some DROD elements can stand alone, while others need a little more support. All the restricted elements have been grouped into Singletons and Sets. If you choose a singleton element, you may only use that in addition to the KDD elements. If you pick a set, you may use any element in that set. You don't have to use all elements in a set. If an element appears in multiple sets, your level can still only contain elements from a single set.

Singletons:

1. All directions
2. You may only connect pressure plates to doors
3. Both active and inactive
4. If you use these elements, you can connect orbs to their active and inactive forms.
5. If you use Rock Giants, you can't place individual Golems. It's fine for them to appear when a Giant is stabbed.

Sets:

1. You may only connect variant orbs to doors

You can't use any of this stuff.
