Hey--are blue doors free? [Oh, and...] Are "secret" and "broken" walls free, or just walls and hard walls?

Obstacles arenīt free ! They cost money.... even if they are just standing around. ;)

Also I read that someone traded things for tar/mud with another player. I cant confirm this deal until both players PMd me.

OK, so clearly broken/secret walls cost you. I still wonder about blue doors, but I suppose we'll see.

Someone remind me: a mē is a single room square? (never mind, he answered that in the other thread)

And, MeckMeck: is "obstacle" per obstacle, or per square? That is, if I want one of those 4x4 statues, do I need to pay 1 Greckle, or 16? (I somehow suspect it's 16.)

4x4 obstacles cost 16... (because they have a higeher optical effect)

The blue door is free... like Characters (if I sold one by accident Ill refund it)

I will sell three Invisibility potions for 15 Greckles, or best offer received by tomorrow when I wake up and check. (Not precise, I know, but.)

Also, if anyone has a spare Scroll, I will pay 10 Greckles for it.

Chalks is out. We shall miss you, Chalks! And you too, coppro! :~(

If everyone submits something, there will be 20 sets of levels -- 6 more than the Unfortunate Architect content. How long will we have to vote? The compilation (I'm hoping there is one) should minimize time between holds. For example, navigating in The Wrong Way is interesting but time consuming. Even better, just have the compilation open for editing.

I was just thinking / worrying about this myself, will we have enough time to really play all the holds that are submitted? I was going to make mine bigger or some of the rooms really challenging but decided that might make it less appealing if there was only a short window to play them in. I never did get to finish every room in the Unfortunate Architect contest.

To bad Feb's contest can't be who scores the highest or something like that, then we rate them at the end of Feb. :w00t

Added Later: I just noticed that while it says "unlimited walls" we now have "secret walls" that we can buy, does this mean that we will have to purchase crumbly walls also or are they under unlimited walls. Also what are hard walls vs walls and do hard one have to be bartered as well?

Sheesh, trust someone who got his internal clock screwed up by playing JtRH for an entire night straight. I got it Tuesday, quickly finished a lot of levels, but Level 22 is giving me a gigantic headache. That's why!

Boy, I'm glad that I was thrifty with my greckles.

Questions:
If you buy 1 tunnel, is that 1 entrance and 1 exit or just 1 square?

In the first Barter session I got this:
"Organic Set (30 squares of tar + 30 squares of mud + two mothers of each) : 34 Greckles"

Earlier I read:
quote:
MeckMeck GRE wrote:
No. They will be bought in mē. Mothers will be bougth in pairs (you may use 1 mother as 1 eyepair or 1 single eye but not as 2 single eyes)


Now that I am building with the mothers I can't figure out if the "two mothers of each" means:

A) I get 1 set of two eyes each. Which means I can use a set in one room each (or together in the same room), at the most 2 rooms.
OR
B) I get 2 sets of two eyes each meaning at the most 4 rooms.

I am under the impression that the statement of "two mothers' means 2 sets of 2 eyes of each kind, with the set remaining a pair. Because a mother is either one eye alone ( in which case you lose one eye - that is a pirate mother ye hearties) or two eyes together.

I do not want to get this wrong and get disqualified. :blush

Question: does this mean that 30 trapdoors can be bought for 2 greckles?

In greckles:
2 * 3 = 6 = 2
3   1   3

In trapdoors:
10*3=30


If so... *eyes gleam greedily*

Will this be the last offer?

Maybe it is really only 2 sets of 10 for 3 Greckles which would mean you get 20 for 3 Greckles and only 13.1 tiles. This 2/3 has me confused too. :fun
