Good idea that you have to

take your clothes and stuff to progress in level 8. What a joy when you get them back at the end, much easier to clean up the level after that :D

One door still closed though :

I hope it's not important..

1500xp per dragons? not really a bargain ;) well, i managed that two of them get destroyed each other (fire d. with ice d.) otherwise it was mission impossible :D . Still 3 dragons left !

Looking for the gear key at level 11 :) . I have no clue where it can be.. I tried to break the eggs but it wasn't inside (suprisingly) :) . I have a topaz key too btw..

Ok, Dark Soul is no more, some of my stats and notes:
SpoilerShow
playtime 18:02 (about 3-4 hrs was walking in circles)
1319 monsterkills
797 items
20/22 treasures
4 skulls
and hundreds of skillbooks :D

- ambient music/sounds are fantastic and make strong atmosphere(first time i heard dragon snoring gave me shivers)
- also i like complexity of the first half of dungeon, which make me feel lost sometimes and reminds me of csb :)
- dragon hunt at lvl9 was nice challenge (although it was not necessary, i simply couldn´t leave it uncleaned :) )
- some open places could be smaller, because it occasionally leads to feeling of emptiness
- first encounters of dark soul often end up with some dead characters, especially when you dont waiting it
- respawn of ghosts at lvl7+11 and spiders at lvl13 is very quick, which makes it very annoying and boring.. slow down will make it more meaningful i think
- deep trip fall drives me crazy, when i got about 20 attempts before my both mages survive the fall(and yes, i fall from lower level), that was definitely not cool :(
Anyway, i really enjoy your mod most of the time, thanks again ;)

thanks for report, I think you are the first who finished it
18 hours, you are good ;)

about the ghosts respawn, it only depends on you ;) it is not a timer respawn but hidden pressure plates, then you can rest without moving

To get to the 2nd plate, check the map (with circles). It's level 5 btw.

You should be able to access one of these paths. There's also a riddle : "35 secondes". you have to activate/deactivate the plates with some items.
SpoilerShow
Can someone explain the "35 seconds" puzzle? I can get the first three doors open, but the last one I just can't figure out.

Any help for the gear key to open the gate at level 11 please ? I also visited a bit of level 12 but nothing so far.
