Hide 'n' Seek
« on: September 14, 2011, 08:14:21 pm »

Recently started playing Genesis mod, and more recently got good enough (read: figured out how to make void masters) to survive the significantly harder bandit fights. So I've come to see the local law giver and he sent me out to fight a minotaur. All fine and good; I effortlessly dropped a giantess I stumbled on earlier, so I'm not really afraid of losing.

Thing is, I can't find the fucker.

I am in the area that my map insists is a labyrinth. It has none of the trappings of a labyrinth. It's basically an open field with a bunch of murky pools. No stairs, no nothing. The little thing in the left corner also insists that I'm in the right place, but I can't find anything that looks remotely like a labyrinth entrance. Is there something obvious I'm missing?

Yeah, that's just it. I'm skirting the boundaries of this patch of land (the point where it stops giving "***" as a direction) and I'm not seeing anything that resembles the usual labyrinth entrance. Though based on your post I can assume there are not, er, other possibly entry appearances? As I had hoped?

Ah no the entrance to a labyrinth is usually just a staircase leading into the ground. Easy to miss if you arent looking.

No, yep. That's what I meant too. I want to come out of the theater completely fucked up for weeks.

I've always seen them with pillars and floors. Sounds to me like the ops labyrinth got bugged in worldgen somehow. Maybe if you try sleep as close to the edge of the area as possible for a while the minotaur will come out to curb stomp you and you can find him that way.

Go down a z-level, and look in the wall for an entrance, a la night-beast lairs. You might find the entrance then.
