The Perilous Catacombs

Underneath Neovia lies a vast network of tunnels and chambers built by dark magic. The evil family that had it constructed is long gone, but many strange and spooky things lurk down here. It's the perfect hiding place for a monster on the run from our favourite Monster Hunters...

Click on a door in the map below in order to proceed. You must find your way to the exit... before too many curses pile up!

Ok, there is no official guide up yet, but the theory in boards is that each door has a solution that works most of the times (unless there are some random evil dudes behind the door). Below is what discovered this far.

  • Glowing door = Slip
  • Growing... = Offer your services as a mediator
  • A faint whisper rustles behind the door, -- rhyming in couplets, = Say hello friendly
  • An unearthly moan ripples through the door, echoing around the room. = Knock on the door politely
  • -- old camping song in the next room. --They sound sort of hoarse, though. = Stomp your feet emphatically
  • All you hear past the door is silence. -- This is just an ordinary silence. = Knock on the door politely
  • Behind the door, you can easily hear an argument. = Take sides in the argument
  • Talking about weather or luggage = open door boisterously
  • Banjos = Hum along
  • Huge snores = Slip in all quiet and sneaky-like

Also, some curses disrupt your ability to use the correct solution. For example Curse of Clobbering seems to make you clumsy and make polite knocking fail.
 
I try to keep this updated and link any in-depth guides that I come across. :)
 
edit: Jellyneo has a guide up: http://www.jellyneo...._eating_contest Currently just a basic how-to and some curse effects.

"Too bad you have no way to remove curses. Let those wear off before you head down."


You must wait 7 hour(s), 39 minute(s), and 31second(s) for Curse of Fatigue
 
 
A big F U too! -_-

Behind this door you hear loud chanting. The chanters are quite enthusiastic, though one is particularly bad at rhythm and keeps joining in late.
   
Burst through the door violently
Knock on the door politely
Hum along with the cheery tune

 

which one should i chooosseee? i'm scared! :S

 

EDIT: pick the last one and was cursed with curse of fatigue but i can still keep opening doors. :unsure:

That is much more helpful, thank you! I hope I'll get that curse of foresight, could do with some more items, as I keep losing/devouring them :(

Most often the prizes/treasures will curse you too, but better to have a curse from a treasure than only a curse :)

I don't know. Do you still suffer from curse effects? Because if not, then this curse might be one of the beneficial ones.

Just make sure that if you find the exit before you have tried all the doors you don't go down to the next level yet. Keep on collecting treasures. Then when you've tried all the doors click on the exit and you get to choose some treasures to keep, if you have any. The more treasures you've found, the more you can choose as prizes to keep. I haven't gone further than these steps yet because I'm under a Curse of Fatigue which means I can't play for now. Good luck!

some curses are just plain silly... like curse of snow that i got just now only turns the text white. annoying, yes, but you can still move...


so what's up with all of these small images (zombie ixi, hooded creatures, etc)?? do they mean anything?

Yes you can still move, in fact you'll have to if you want them to go away, the number in brackets behind a curse is the number of moves that the curse will last.

 

I don't think the icons mean anything other than to show you what you've found so far?

Runic Door

The glowing runes on this door keep out anyone who doesn't possess a Magical Scroll.

Researchers at the NC Mall recently developed a scroll that might come in handy here.

(Once you purchase a scroll at the NC Mall, reload this page.)

 

How was I NOT Expecting that?
