Map Info:
After your “Escape from Zanzer’s Dungeon”, you entered the nearby village and told the tale at the tavern. Unexpectedly, you were seized by guards and taken before the magistrate.

Without Zanzer’s protection the woodland bandits could move in and take whatever they wanted. The villagers forced you to seek out a magical stone capable of summoning a celestial guardian to protect the town.

The Guardian Stone is located in the abandoned dwarven fortress “Stonefast” beneath Zanzer’s Dungeon, which is rumored to be inhabited by a young white dragon.

What to Expect When You’re Exploring

  • Estimated Play Time: Between 1.5-2.5 hours.
  • Lore Heavy: Being literate helps (not just able to read, but willing). You must read the lore books for vital clues. However, an in-game walkthrough is provided in case you get stuck.
  • Non-Linear: Though reviewers everywhere are giving high praise to games for their linearity, Stonefast dares to require the player to make choices about where to go.
  • Resource Pack: One is included, but not required. It mostly provides a title screen and converts gold ingots and nuggets to gold pieces.
  • Difficulty: Easy by default, but you may adjust it if you like. Anything but peaceful.
  • Keep Inventory: ON, due to a number of key items you cannot afford to lose.
  • Key Items: Items important to completing the adventure are indicated by accompanying XP bottles. You can leave behind the written books, but other items (including normal books) should be held on to.
  • Game Mode: Adventure: You cannot place crafted torches, cakes, or any other blocks except where you are supposed to. Special torches have been provided, but night vision potions are recommended. Stay in adventure mode to ensure that command blocks detect players properly.

Advice and Final Statements
Take it slow and take note of the little details.

If you make a video of your gameplay, would you kindly send it my way.

+1 Derpus I had a lot of fun with this one, I just had some trouble finding what to do next, so I had to keep going to the walkthrough. Could use more dialogue to explain where to go, but outside of that a very fun adventure.

+1 Axcalibar Just a note that this map is also not forward compatible. I have tried it in 15w39c and it breaks the redstone (among other things) in some pretty fundamental ways. Please continue to use Minecraft 1.8.x. No, I will not update it to 1.9 even when it has an official release.

+2 Person Hey, I just found the secret underground city. What exactly are we supposed to do there? The only significant structures are a palace in the corner which leads to an empty throneroom and three towers. I have no idea what to look for or why they're there. I assume that it was where all the monsters who took over Stonefast are from.

+1 Axcalibar I would've liked to include "Invisiclues" for this map... less spoilery than the walkthrough. So here's an idea: I'll ROT13 some tips, then you can decode only the ones you need at www.rot13.com.

How do I light the lamps in the training center?

We are currently stuck on Vilhem's Crafting quest, it says we don't have the required tears of appreciation even though we have 6. What should we do?

1) Make sure you are in adventure mode!
2) Place the tears in the chest in the center of town. It shouldn't matter, but for the sake of argument, put only four tears in the first slot.
3) Step on the pressure plate in front of the chest.

How do you beat the dragon?

Everything is explained in the walkthru, but nevertheless:

1) You need the "Heart Shatter" pick which is located in the ruined building in the caverns.
2) When you confront the dragon, quickly kill the Frost Wight's, then switch to the pick.
3) When the dragon raises up to breathe ice, notice how its neck changes... hack away at the bottom block to reveal its "heart" (redstone).
4) Continue swinging at the heart with the pick. When it breaks, get out of they way or Kamro will collapse on you.

+9 sonicfan0001 I've just gotten done with your map! And man, Zanzer Tem was good, but this was 5 times better! Great puzzles, great D & D feeling, and the dragon was really cool, too! It was a bit complicated, but then again, D & D is, too. :P Overall, really fun. I sadly did no manage to get a recording of it, though.

+3 TheDonDon I recently did a walkthrough of the map and people let me tell you, it was a joy to play. Aside from like 1 or 2 small bugs(which have most likely been patched) the map was put together perfectly.

There are even walkthrough books readily available to anyone who gets lost which is a nice touch because I am really bad with direction!

Anyways here's part 1 of my walkthrough if anybody is interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mY4JpnvMkoE&index=9&list=PLNU5rxTgExFKH5LDjf-GvQQHpeA5eYA_l

Great map Axecalibar, it was a ton of fun!

Playing Zanzer Tem's Dungeon before this map is not required -- I summarize the events at the beginning of this one -- though it would be a nice gesture and certainly more immersive. ZTD takes 30-45 minutes (1.7.10).

alright i will make sure to play it then. i will also make a playthrough for it on my youtube channel
