icon Arky's Revenge Compilation  
Compilation of entries from the Arky's Revenge contest. Contestants were asked to make a room in the style of the Arky rooms in TSS.

Complete with voiced Arky scrolls. A big thanks to Erik Hermansen for reprising his role here.

Two problems with the challenge scripting you might want to address. (Since this doesn't affect scoring demos, I guess it's okay to update these in published holds?)

I'm a bit confused--there's ties, but I can only find one room for their respective placements (there was allegedly a tie for 33rd but I can only find one 33rd room). Are these ranked based on tiebreakers?

No, there's two 33rd places, I just checked and they both have scrolls saying "33rd place tie". You must have just overlooked one of them.

Ah. Speaking of, would anyone happen to have a list of rooms and their respective placings? I'm playing in order of lowest ranked to highest ranked, and that'd be a VERY helpful resource to have instead of constantly scrambling to-and-fro.

Well, it doesn't have the locations in the hold, but you can see the placements in the original contest poll:

http://forum.caravelgames.com/viewtopic.php?TopicID=43967

This at least tells you when you need to look for a tie.

I can see about putting together a location list a little later.

Dragon Fogel did a terrific job both running this contest and putting the compilation together. The rooms themselves are a bit of a mixed bag as is often the case with contest compilations, but on the whole they were pretty fun. But The voice acting definitely puts this one over the top and it's well worth checking out just for that.

A couple of forum members have recorded LPs of this one too. Here are links to the playlists.

Lastly, here is a map of all the room placements and list of where to find each one to assist in navigating the hold.
