So, is this a good place to post if we need help? :-)

In "Don't Look Back", is there a way to get back north (i.e. into the main hold) after going south into 5N13E?

And, in "The Icy Dungeon", is 1W completable?

I hate to ask for hints, but I'd also hate to not vote a hold as high as it should be voted because I can't finish it.

I just started Don't Look Back but I am taking a break so perhaps someone else can help with that.

Game on,

Buh? Do you mean 5S3E? Because I think the answer is no.

Hints are good.

Has anybody played my entry yet? There are, indeed, some tricky rooms in there, but I don't think it's anything nearly as taxing as some of the other entries I've seen.

Oh, so it is. Thank you. I'd already realized I'd need to follow that hint; my problem was that, as Swivel mentioned above,

And yes, I did mean 5S3W, not north.

I was afeared that this would happen. It's my fault anyhow, but I couldn't get such visible crumbly walls.

By the way, the trapdoor/red door/brain puzzle in Don't Look Back got me thinking about trapdoors and brained pathfinding. Such a simple thing, but I realized that it had more possibilities than I had thought.

Err... Yes. I found it very easy, but I suppose that could differ. I am impressed by how goodlooking the hold are :)

Here's a fixed version of my entry (#13: The Pit) that I'd like to be used if someone makes a compilation hold of the entries.

It fixes 2 trivial solutions in 1S and 1S1E along with minor changes in the Museum to reflect those changes. I didn't release (or even mention) these before to not affect the voting in any way.

Other than that, it's the same as before.

Well, now that the contest is over, who's going to be making the compilation hold?

I would suggest an extremely graphically elaborate main hold with a very high visual effect. This just proves that King Bandago is a rich, stingy king. Also, I wonder if this compilation hold is going to use pits instead of walls again.

May I comment on the contest itself? Well, one thing that this contest really communicated to me was what Erik calls a ďspirit of generosity.Ē As I continue to make my Great Latent Hold (capitalized like the Great American Novel) I just might include an extra obstacle, just because I can. Iíll make Beethro comment on something to amuse the player, just because I can. I'll add a serpent here, just to add a dimension of interest. Just because I feel a little generous today. I didnít previously understand that as much, but now I do better. Thanks, MeckMeck!

Iím so proud to have gotten 8th place in the 8th.

Well, the beginning of my hold suggests that Beethro just finds my entry in the plains by King Bandago's castle, with it's own little seperate entrance. So, I should think the main compilation hold should be King Bandago's castle and the grounds around it.

I just realised I left out a green door in 2W. I wonder if it affected people's impressions? And if so, which way? :/

Here is a corrected version.

Yes, I did. I don't see how I'm going to push off the goblin for that, however.
