A quick 12-room exercise I made over a few days. My goal was to create something quick but with heavy restrictions on the resources available (minus time).

So! This was my first hold that made it past approval (though there's only one other hold I tried for approval so far) between main-series DROD and DROD RPG. I've got a few holds that I've been working on and off over time, so expect some others from me across the next few months maybe! No story present here, it's just a quick mini-hold.

This is a really good first RPG publication. I had tons of fun playing this one. My first playthrough was a success and took just under 40 minutes. Which sounds like a lot for just 12 rooms but isn't when you consider that the choices on display were all really tricky and agonising, which is fantastic.

There's no gimmicks, just high quality core RPG gameplay on offer here.

I decided to record my first ever look at this hold.

I enjoyed this hold a lot. I liked just how valuable health was as an resource in this hold. If you consider opening a green door for a single large health potion, you know health is well balanced.

The final boss just being a roach queen was a bit underwhelming, though, IMO. Sure, you lose the sword, but there's quite a few monsters in the main hold that are tougher than that.
