Minsipone did a lovely Spotlight here. Thanks, Minsipone!

Jaedrian of PUG TV did a fun walk(run?)through of the maze. Click here to see the video.

It's that time of the year! That time of the year when dead things walk (more often than usual).

In honor of Anashti Sul, the Goddess who brought undeath to Norrath, Lilith has opened her home to us.

What does this mean to you?

It means a maze, of course! A maze, with a riddle at the center. Find the maze, run the maze, answer the riddle, and win prizes!

So get a head start on Nights of the Dead with the MazeMansion and The Crypt Maze to Anashti Sul!

This maze was from last year, and so only token prizes will be awarded for completion. The Crypt Maze is this year's maze, with better rewards (although what reward can be better than plain ol' fun?).

There is a place in Gorowyn

Where spirits dance and vampires spin.

To Timorous Heights you should go;

Find Lilith's mansion deep below.

For Nights of Dead, a prize to win;

Find the end, or thy life forgo!

Such an incredible job on the graveyard, I'm in love with all of the detail there.  The maze itself was totally awesome! I finally made it through Thanks Jaz for the fun time!

*edit* I should add that I only made it through after I started to diagram where I'd been on paper LOL Yes, it's that hard SMILEY

One hell of a maze... really, I got lost. Very lost. I'm one of those people who could get lost in a hallway, and I was cruelly reminded of my own brains' very limited capasity in this aspect when entering this place. Curse you, Jazabelle! SMILEY

To be frank, this is a real kickass maze. Best one I've seen so far. The whole place is wonderfully creepy, without getting cheesy. Very, very well done. I really enjoyed touring this home.

Updated the first post with a (really bad) poem, and the Riddlemasters. Keep up the good work guys! There are several people trying to figure out the riddle at the moment, and quite a few more making their way through the maze. Join in the fun!

I've also published the house (I know, I know. I dislike the leaderboards, but I'll be leaving the house up there until the 31st, for easy travel for people). It's under "Large Homes" as "The NotD Mazemansion: Open through 10/31."

Edit: Oh yes, and thank you very much for the kind compliments. I'm really glad everyone's enjoyed it so far.

Ok  I had my turn in the barrel.  I can only guess that this must be a really well done maze as I was thoroughly lost for way too long. After I got some hints and made myself larger it was a little easier.  I still  never found the end.  Very nicely done

Kudos,

Cloudrat

Wonderful!  and so much fun!

Ingeniously built.  I ran though it once "properly" (getting lost en route) and then a second time, making a map (cheating?  Nooo!  Just being a good rogue!).  It's so cleverly put together! Very disorientating ...

I got the riddle very quickly but it's because it's a style I'm used to SMILEY

Thanks so much for building this!

Wow, this looks great!  I'll be headed out to see this home, pronto.

Edited many long hours later to say:  Jaz, your maze is fantastic, and I have no idea how to find the secret BUT I'm not done looking yet.  I was getting a bit dizzy and cross-eye, so I needed to take a break.   Someone commented earlier that they can get lost in a hallway.  Well, I can lost in a closet, so finding the secret might take me a good long while!  

Incredible job!  That maze is a brain-twister.

Hijas,

so you hooked me up on that and some other guildies  and finally some of us made it some not yet....

But what I want to say:

What a clever idea.

What a great execution.

So much fun we had.

So....thank you for doing this and adding some extra fun to the game.

All can participate, no level restrictions.

Tradeskill is not requiered.

Mitigation is not a must.

U never know what comes next.

Greetings Mu!

It's been open two weeks, and only ten people have completed both the maze and the riddle! Don't be shy, feel free to send guesses if you aren't quite sure what the answer is.

I know that at least 15 people have made it to the end of the maze (which means at least 5 of you haven't sent Lilith your guesses yet. Guess, guess!) This doesn't count the number of people who have made it to the end of the maze, but haven't yet sent in their guesses or told me they've made it. You can do it!

Prizes will only be awarded for another 20 days, so come on down to Lilith's Timorous Heights mansion on Antonia Bayle. Remember, you can also visit by using the Leaderboards. Look for "The NotD Mazemansion: Prizes thru 10/31" under Large Homes (changed the name since I kept getting tells asking why it was only open through the 31st...).

My poor Slipps got so very lost and dizzy in there...  Of course she will just have to go back and try again!

Excellent job Jaz!  Especially the creepy Freeblood wandering about the cemetary late at night >.>

First let me say this place is just amazing.  I love the colors and the feel that it's a mansion. It reminds me of Nektropus Castle but much more beautiful. 

I thought about doing something like this on my server but after trying three times and even attempting making a map I figure there's no way I could be this creative.  I'm officially giving up!!!!! You win Mazemansion!

I brought my boyfriend along to visit and we both loved the maze. It is perfectly creepy and it is easy to feel lost and hopeless in there.  While my navigation skills are rather lacking I felt I came close to finding a way to the book SMILEY  When dungeon builder tool comes out you should give this maze a try in a new context!

Everytime I thought I'd figured this out, I realized I was still lost--but I didn't care, because this is one of the most incredible things I've ever seen to date. Thanks for all the work you put into it. I'll have to give it another go soon!

Thank you so much for the kind compliments!

I'm starting to wonder if I need to send out search teams to look for people who've gotten lost. It started off as a flood of people answering the riddle, but it has since died to a trickle. Come on in and take a break from your NotD farming! Unlike NotD, prizes will only be awarded through the 31st

Wonderful job to everyone who's done the maze. An amazing 24 people have run the maze and collected their prizes (sorry to the 7 of you I didn't get until this morning!).

Thank you to each and every person who's visited the maze. I had fun building it, but knowing people are enjoying running it makes all of the hair-pulling I engaged in worthwhile!

I've updated the list of Riddlemasters yet again. There are only a few more days for prizes!

Also, if Tully of Avalon Knights reads these boards, or if you happen to know Tully, would you inform them that their mailbox is full and I cannot send them their prize?

Happy Hauntings!

Due to popular demand (all right, only a couple of people mentioned it, but still!) the NotD MazeMansion is opening its doors for prizes again!

Only token prizes will be offered for those who complete the MazeMansion, as it's not actually this year's maze. That would be The Crypt Maze to Anashti Sul.
