I found it to be a very interesting dmod, but I encountered some problems while cleaning the basement:
1. I killed all the pillbugs within the locked screens, I even killed the slimes in the room with 25 gold (without a screenlock), but the guard won't let me out;
2. Do I have to pass the "game for a cake" with the slimes? Without buying the herb boots killing even one of them is impossible while I only have 4 strenght and 2 defense, they hit me for 8 hit points and two hits and I'm dead.
3. About the secret - a remark: with the stats I do have it is impossible to kill all the pillbugs and all the blocking people in the given time (also without the herb boots), will I be able to get back to this secret later with better stats?

Yo Herbie.

1. You need to clear the Slimer boss encounter explained below to get out.
2. Read what the Slimer boss says (he is a lying rug ), survive for 75 seconds, you win! (you will get extra xp if you manage to kill the cocky boss slime)
3. Yes, you can definitely clear the secret by only being level 2 at this point. And yes, you can get back here later.

Ok, I survived, but I cannot enter the basement anymore to try to get through the secret. The guard is not talking anymore and there is no entrance nearby.

I just forgotten to say something, in "FIAT" there is a dialogue:
"Behold I am FIAT"
"Behold you are ugly!"
I say: "Behold you are a sadist by creating this d-mod!"

He has like thousands of HP. I have a fraps of me beating him to a pulp at level 6. I can upload it if you want.

I changed so that the slayers target you right away after you've picked up the items in the forest. After you picked up the log, if you don't have the Ice Orb, things will get difficult as you have to get the first punch to make the slayer target you. And Dink is right next to the slayer at that point sooooo the slayer will often hit you right after you hit it.

Also added a cool midi for the Elixer botique, fixed a typo and other small things.

Ok, so I must be missing some tactical approach in fight against him...

Have you dropped all your items except the SLASHMASTER and filled your inventory with elixers?

With tactical movement, backing off and coming back to attack I can make it for all 2 minutes with 10 elixers, but I can't just stand in one place and fight him, because by touching he hits me for some 15-16 hit points at once.

Go fill up your inventory at the elixer botique with elixers and things will surely work out. So that you have your fists, SLASHMASTER and 14 elixers.

Yup, it's all about the tactical movement and not getting touched.

Oh yeah? Me and what army? Maybe it wouldn't be so hard if I could freeze him for more than 2-3 seconds and - oh yeah, how it is possible that a frozen man can use hellfire? That's illogical So using hellfire is rather more effective. But of course the Author prevents the player from possibilities of rising magic stats, who needs this anyway?
By the way, how many people you know who won the fight against him in the hard mode?

YESSS! Finally! But no experience bonus for all that fighting!? You've got to be shootting me! He should be worth at least few thousands! The game also finished, in fact in comparison to Bob, Darius is relatively easy

Oh, I almost forgot, It can happen rarely, but it can. At the first time I killed Bob in the same moment when the time went out and the effect was that Dink was sustaining 1 point damage, there was no message and the game froze, probably because the program received conflicting information.

By the way, what program are You using to create/edit d-mods? I'm asking because it is nicely done, no bugs, hardness errors etc.

Hm, sounds annoying, I may have to look at that bug. Thanks! And thanks for liking my mod!

I'm using WinDinkEdit+ 2 for making DMODs. The overview of your DMOD in the making is outstanding making hardness errors detectable. Not to mention the mod has been updated lots the past years, being polished and more polished.

I'd love if you left a review too, Herbie!
