Created by Axcalibar

Map Info:
The local wizard, Zanzer Tem has been abducting people and putting them to labor in his salt mine. You are his latest victim. Will you meet your end at the hands of the wizard's ogre taskmasters, or will you escape and render justice unto Zanzer?

Based on the classic D&D adventure "Escape from Zanzer's Dungeon" included in The Classic Dungeons and Dragons boxed set (published by TSR in 1994).

Play on Easy or higher Difficulty.

Minecraft Version: 1.7
Using any other version guarantees a clusterflip of awfulness.

Resource Pack:
CrEaTiVe_ONE's Medieval Pack
Required for story elements to make sense.
Note: If the minecraft.net skin server is down, the enemy heads will not display properly.

Conclusion:
This is my first adventure map. I hope you enjoy it. Any constructive feedback would be appreciated.

Read the rules in the initial room. Seriously... do it! Take special note that the "keys" (named levers) should only be used on the specifically marked doors. There are iron doors elsewhere, but they are only meant as scenery.

On your first playthrough, take it slow and take note of the little details. In D&D it's a bad idea to blaze through the dungeon and it's no different here. You miss a lot and it increases the chances of the DM creating a grudge dungeon for not appreciating their work. Enjoy the journey. It's a short map, but there's much to discover.

The map set in the world of my Pathfinder campaign: heroshi.pbworks.com

Changes in 1.3:

  • Tiledrops are back on, making being unable to escape the pit just sad.
  • Creative Mode blocker is no longer lethal.
  • Want to use creative mode? Finish the map to earn it.

Changes in 1.2:

  • Cannot skip over encounters.
  • The pit is now very escapable.
  • Secret rooms now have incentives for finding them.
  • A closer encounter with Zanzer's golem.
  • Brutal retaliation against going into creative mode. Trust me... you want none of it.

Changes in 1.1:

  • Harder to get off the plot railroad.
  • Difficulty is set to Easy by default.
  • A Difficulty switch has been added to the starting room.
  • Some NPC dialogue has been changed.
  • Tiledrops are now off, so you can't reuse levers.
  • There is a consequence for going too far behind the scenes.

The explanation of why they don't work for you occurs at least 3 times on this page. XD Read!

My Friends and I played this map yesterday really fun, we are going to play the sequel soon.

How did you set up the not going into creative mode thing. I was trying to explore the commands you used in the map, but cannot get into creative mode until i complete the map, how did you set that up, It would be an awesome feature in the map I am making.


Thanks for playing! As for the Creative Mode Blocker, I've made a video explaining that.

+3 Phineas Rage Hey Axcalibar,

I really enjoyed this. It is short, but I liked that about it. Nice job.

It's a great length for a Let's Play, so maybe I should do that. :)

+3 Axcalibar Thanks everyone, for the support of this map. If you enjoyed it (and perhaps thought it was too short), you'll be pleased to know that its sequel, "Stonefast", is being beta-tested. However, I will likely wait for the official release of 1.8, as there seem to be some odd bugs in multiplayer at this time.

@APERSON: ZTD seems to work well in multiplayer. This should be obvious, but expect the difficulty to scale downward with more players.

+8 Mel It's great, just really short (it took us 30-40 minutes, but it felt like we had just started the adventure and hadn't come apon any hard parts yet) and it was too easy (We even played on medium) - If you extend the map, it would be AMAZING.

-30 THATGUY This map was horrible, the story was nonexistant (Or at least, EXTREMELY poorly explained), there was no aparent linearity at all and all i did was run around empty halls with chests full of loot. No progression, bad explanation and NO fun at all.

Im sorry, but this map was extremely poorly explained and very boring.

+13 PrinceofSha This was an amazing adventure map! I loved every second of it, and decided to record it for my gaming channel. I'll upload the video soon. But kudos to you, sir! I loved the map, and I'm very excited for part II.

+2 Axcalibar Just a notice until I can update again: I've decided the Creative-Blocki ng mechanism I implemented is too heavy-handed. I will be removing the lethal element. In the mean time, to diffuse the device (if you really must use creative mode) in the starting room "/give [yourself] wooden_hoe" and plow the block under the "Discoveries" sign. You will be able to reach a lever underneath that deactivates the blocker.

+11 Axcalibar @MyName: I frankly don't see how that's possible. If you were playing on peaceful, didn't search any chests or pay attention to anything, and you knew where you were going prior to playing... it would still take longer than 2 minutes. Check your difficulty and version against what's specified above.

+4 Damion Its 1.8? I didn't notice. Thank you.
Yay! My first comment that actually got a response!
