I'm perfectly fine with contests. It's starting big holds and other extended projects that I'm more concerned about.

One question:

Would it be a good idea to start building the general layout of the dungeon with the materials I have right now, then start bartering and get particular monsters I need?

Hey Schik, can you get your hold-item-counter back up and running? It's kind of broken. I tried an AE hold in case that was the problem and it choked again.

We weren't given any seeps, so I'd say yes.

Good Lord, we don't even have arrows to start with? Well--count me in, bearing in mind that I have literally never made a hold before....

Hm. I'm gonna need some force arrows, a couple queens, and a brain thus far, but I'm 3 rooms in and I've still got most of my supplies.

No. Because of the seeps and the optic.

I'm still a little confused about what we can use, what we can buy and what we can't use (or possibly won't be able to)

Is every object and monster in the game buyable from someone or are there exceptions? It would be good to know beforehand.

Wait, objects don't count as walls? Even if you don't use seep in your hold?

Everything will be buyable. As soon as the barter phase starts (tomorrow), IŽll post a list with monsters and prices. Monsters that are highly demanded will become more expensive....

What happens if I join the contest but then am too lazy to talk to people I don't know very well to barter, and therefore have no chance of winning, so it's essentially like I wasted my entry?

Maybe I'll become inspired to try tomorrow. Count me in, if you can. :D

I don't know if it's already asked, but are obstacles payable?

And if it is, why?

Please set up a barter board.

In the meanwhile, I will sell my WWs for 10 roaches if anyone is interested.

I'll take 2 Organic Sets. That should be plenty for one level.

I think we should take entries until the holds are due, if you ask me, which of course no one has, but anyway I will tell you my thoughts cuz I want to. :lol

After all late comers just miss out on the good deals the rest of us have bartered with each other, let them come the more the merrier. More holds to play more potential new hold builders in the future.

By the way I took my deal, I recommend sending a request for what you need the most. Think big :w00t who knows what you may get.

I'll gladly trade almost anything for tar or mud - that's probably going to end up being my hold "theme".

I may have some extras, but that will require some tinkering with my hold first.

I am with you about why are obstacles so expensive or cost anything at all. I think the rooms will look very boring without some decoration from obstacles. Hey what about if the obstacles is in the puzzle it costs you otherwise if it is just decoration it doesn't? :?

Yeah, obstacles cost money if used in the same room as monsters, but are free otherwise (less maintenance as they are not being bitten up by roaches and being stained by tar)

You know, at first, I was thinking this; and then I realized that, well, the room will also look very boring without monsters. Spend your money wisely--on monsters if you need them, on decoration if you need it (and after all, custom floors aren't free)--and may G-d thy gold refine.
