I won't mod you down (yet ;) ), but seriously, you couldn't convince her to at least let it be posted in Architecture first? Because nothing lets the hounds out like posting an untested hold to the Holds board.

Ah well, the ratings system will mostly take care of it.

Game on,

I got all the bugs out, but she wouldn't let me change any puzzles designs. All rooms are possible. Even the secret ones.

I see there is a level called Tehehehehehe (or some such). Is there any way into it? There are no high scores for it. Also having completed the hold (and all the secret rooms - judged from the restore screen) I seem only to have 66% completion (judged from the change location screen). Is the missing 33% this other level?

I'm fixing it as we speak. What happened is, the last level I tested to make possible on the third level had a bug in it. Once I fixed it, I tested the fourth level, forgetting to check the stairs! :unsure

Updated.

I'd have to say, not bad.

The hold is fairly easy, but pretty well done overall. Several rooms were a bit tedious which older DROD players will probably not enjoy;however, this hold might well appeal more to younger players.

Nice hold, not to easy.
Hope she makes more holds like this.
(and maybe let her register on her own name, so she can get the mod points ;)

Nice hold though agreeing with Larrymurk regarding certain tedious rooms which I just didn't want to try and optimise (in particular Tehe 2 North).

Some very good rooms however.

[Bootnote]

Isn't this the 2nd hold produced by your sister ?
If so, she's really improved or maybe... just maybe... you made this one ;)

[EDIT]
Disrespectful typo!

This is her first. I'm helping her with her next one, so hopefully it will be less tedious.

Blech. This resembles That Annoying Hold and Bad Evil Restaurant, except the author was actually trying to make a hold.

:nugget

Are you using 'DROD: Architect's Edition' or 'DROD: Journey to Rooted Hold'? This hold is not importable in the former, so you need the demo/full version of DROD:JtRH to play it.

If you are using DROD:JtRH, you should try downloading the file again, and make sure you're not downloading from your browser cache.

Did you ever have a bad dream where you thought you were trapped inside a hold with globs of monsters tossed in, and serpents wrapped around the entirety of the room for no apparent reason other than to make the player wait? If so, you probably a) play too much DROD, and b) were playing this hold.

Er... not much to say except that obviously the author (Ezlo's little sister) had a lot of fun and I'm glad she did. Did she complete the other hold with Ezlo's help? 3 for brains, 5 for fun. It wasn't a bad lunch hour.

Shouldn't this say "actually authored by Bunches"?

Edit: Also reassign this hold to that account instead of Ezlo's?
