    For this trial in particular, there isn't support for multiple floors aside from putting them on the same map. In the future I definitely want to have a few trials with that option on the table, but sadly it won't be for this trial. Apologies if that throws a wrench into any plans you or someone else had for the trial!

    I think we can define a dungeon as "an unsafe location, that isn't a route". Towns can be considered save because usually they wont have random wild encounters there. This doesn't mean your dungeon most contain wild Pokemon, but it needs to impose some sort of challenge for a trainer.

    If one has puzzles that might be confusing to work through in a still image, should/could one include a game file of the map in the entry?

    Up to you! Feel free to attach some diagrams/additional images with how they work, a text explanation, or even a video/gif. Map files work too.

    Just popping in to say: the results for Trial III will be up within the next day, and a day or two after that we'll be starting Trial IV. Trial IV will conclude on December 20th, so you should have lots of time for that!

    Edit: And the results are up! Congrats to @artcanary@artcanary and @xThatOneGuy@xThatOneGuy!

    Congratz ArtCanary and xThatOneGuy! I loved the many interpretations to the theme, I expected to see more caves for sure! I love the puzzles in the Temple of Zapdos, and the theme of the Jeweled Forest is so unique. I doubt I could've done it any better. Thanks to Deo again for having me as a judge, it's been really fun. There I think I've said that now on every platform XD

    oh, wow, thanks !!! O:

    there were so many great entries, I really loved seeing them all come in (especially the lore on leilou and techskylander's maps)!

    and hm, yeah - I was having trouble placing the red switch in a symmetrical layout, but I'd placed it up there before I greatly expanded the switch puzzle section (the first draft was a lot less big and cool, and a lot more small and confusing) - putting that elsewhere in the switch puzzle would probably have been a good idea, and make something else you have to backtrack to as well. thanks a lot for the input!!

    Only four days left! Please make sure you're plugging away at your map with your partner! If you haven't started, there's definitely still time but get those maps in!
