Good dungeon that's longer than the original?

Post by Xombium » Sun Jan 13, 2013 8:18 am

Hey. I loved the original dungeon. I haven't even got one mod yet. I was wondering if there are any that are longer then the original dungeon. I'd like to be able to get my characters from level 0 to max level (or close to) in one dungeon. Obviously if I do this, it would have to be a good dungeon. Hopefully as good or better than the original. Is there such a dungeon that can achieve this?

Even if there is a max Character level (maybe 100) i doubt anybody will every reach it without a mod providing massive amounts of experience and/or entire level-up rewards. The experience needed for higher levels is simply insane:

Thanks! But is it fun? A good mix of puzzles and monsters and a decent dungeon design. Custom wallsets and items and the like are always a good bonus. Ya know, an overall good quality dungeon crawling experience!

And as for max level, I guess what I meant was a high enough level to max out a few of your skills.

I'm working on a big dungeon that's a balanced mix of combat and puzzles. I think it's already a good deal bigger than the Grimrock dungeon. But even so I think you'll be hard pressed to max out two skills since the XP requirements are so high at the later levels. But maybe if you luck out and find the right tomes... I'm working on the final level right now, but it's going to be a while still since I need to do a lot of testing and take care of a few details here and there.
