How to do the challenge? The only sword position where Beethro can survive after striking the orb seems to be Southwest. Unfortunately, after dealing with first part of roaches and coming back for the rest, I'm ending stuck at the two rightmost columns of the middle section of the room.

I also tried using the eastern arrow rotator twice (because that's different thing than using both of them). I'm able to kill all roaches that way, but unfortunately that doesn't score a challenge.

That seems to be the sensible way to approach this. The scroll states 'use only one token'. It does not state 'only rotate once'. I don't see a different way of solving the challenge either (but there may well be a way).

Still, your solution should award the challenge i.m.h.o. Perhaps someone around here knows what the script is actually checking for. That'd be helpful.

I already solved my problem by moving a little bit differently in the middle - less roaches came to me and I was able to get out.

Can anyone provide any hints to help with this? I'm extremely stuck.

Thank you! I was missing the second bit. It is very easy to prematurely write things off as impossible.
