Hello all, this is my second hold, and it is of a higher quality than my previous one, both in terms of difficulty and fun. I hope you enjoy the puzzles.

Thanks to mxvladi for working so hard to make sure that this hold was free of unintended solutions, and that everything worked as intended.

I really liked this hold. It's full of really, really tough puzzles (which either require lots of planning or are (fairly neat) lynchpins) - I'd say it will stump many DROD veterans - and definitely worth playing. Anyone who wants to see what really tough puzzles look like should try this. The third level also gains points for originality: I won't say exactly what it is, but it's quite different from the rest.

The puzzles here are doable, they just require a lot of thought and persistence. I suggest that you try to complete this hold: it's worth completing!

JFYI, I did some research and found out it' s the only unconquered hold among 500 of them. I'm giving this hold some karma points, maybe they will be helpful in removing the curse.

There's also Due Payment, which is unconquered by everyone but me, but since I was a tester for that hold it's no different from the situation with this hold.

Looks like it worked, I just finished it today.

Most of the rooms are actually pretty fun once you get going, the thing is that a lot of them are quite intimidating and hard to get started on. Also, there are a few rooms that rely on obscure mechanics.

Still, overall I found it pretty fun as high difficulty holds go. If you have a thorough understanding of weird interactions (or are willing to check hint threads, as I am), this is a solid hold to break your brain against.

I'm usually too lazy to rate holds, but under the circumstances I feel I should toss this one a ranking. 8 for fun and 10 for brains.
