Hi all,

I'd really like to publish a hold this year and over the last couple of years have produced a bunch of rooms which I consider to be of good enough quality to go into a hold. This currently single level hold is a selection of them.

While this is sort of a spiritual sequel to an earlier hold, the rooms are more thematic and the difficulty far more uniform across the rooms. The rooms mainly focus on lynchpin puzzles with monster manipulation and magic sequences being kept to a minimum.

There are three puzzle levels. Oasis focusses on Time Clones, Caves focusses on snakes and Fortress is a miscellaneous level which has a variety of different puzzle types.

While the hold is not yet finished, I don't have many rooms left to build and so I would really appreciate any feedback you might have.

Update!

I've decided structurally that the best way to split out the hold is into 3 thematic levels:

-Caves: snakes (currently has 6 puzzle rooms)
-Oasis: timeclones and some puffs (currently has 7 puzzle rooms)
-Fortress: miscellanious (currently has 3 puzzle rooms)

There's a one room hub level from which you can access any of the puzzle levels.

I've also added in a few new rooms, so any feedback is much appreciated.

Also this one as requested in chat.

Since I'm terrible at time clones and route planning, I'd like to encourage others to test this as well in the spirit of keeping the public DROD community going.

Thanks for these Dischorran.

First one: not really intended - thinking at the moment I might just can that room and go build another in its place.

Second one: definitely not intended.

In light of this ^ I've posted an update!

-Fixed Caves: 1W to hopefully prevent solutions in the vein of Dischorran's solution (I *think* this will work, but am not 100%).
-Added a new room in Fortress

Update:

I built a room! It's in Oasis.

On that note, Oasis has got 9 puzzle rooms so is nearly complete (I might build one more room, depending on whether I get any inspiration).

Update:

A bunch of new rooms. Yay!

Also, I'd really appreciate any comments anyone has as I've still not had very much feedback at all. Even if it's just 'I couldn't do these rooms they are hard', all feedback is helpful!
