And here's a little key for quickly finding what you want
- Written Key on the map
- Notes and Important information
- My thoughts during the process of mapping this map
- Any credit needed to be give to other dreamers
The key may be hard to read, so i'll rewrite it here, also you may have to squint your eyes to read some of the numbers apologize for that, i'll keep that in mind when shrinking down the other maps so i can actually fit them upon here.
Correct portals: Green line Fake walls : Blue line The centre pillar : Gray circle
Portals out of maze: Red line Decorations: Red boxes and circles Stairs: Badly drawn stairs
Notes and important information:
Originally i had place notes on the map, however due to having the press the map into itself to fit it into the scrolls here, i removed them, So here they are instead, along with some more information.
Note 1: You will have to jump to get through hidden walls
Note 2: There is a shamblix at step 10, you may want to chamele before entering the room
Note 3: Any red line on the map means that portal will lead you outside of the maze, and you'd have to do the entire maze again, Any step beyond step 9 has rooms that look alot like rooms in chasm of souls, However, despite what it looks like, you are not in the same room, but instead what i call a "Mirror room", a term you may end up seeing me use a lot in these map scrolls, a mirror room is just a room that looks like another room on a plane, but isnt the same room.
Note 4: The map has a section in the top left, showing you each step you need to take to get to the centre, it can be hard to make out the steps as the map is rather small, but generally they are separated by lines, some are harder to see however, and so if you look for the weird black blur just above each part, know that says "Step" and whatever step it is. There are 12 steps in total.
Note 5: Once you complete step 12, you will be back inside the first section of the maze, However this time you can walk off the platform, Be mindful though, You can still active the other platforms portals.
Note 6: There is a portal in the centre, for once you make it through the portal, to get back out.
Note 7: There is apart of the map in the top right section, where one platform is marked 5(6), and there is no further markings, that is because the two entrances to the shrine meet at that point, I marked the rest of the maze as "Second entrance A" and "Second entrance B" as i was marking it from the second entrance at that time, and found that the first connects up to the second, So while on the first entrance on platform 5, you are on the second entrance A, platform 6.
Note 8: There is a second entrance, if you stand at the stairs leading up to the breach portal, on the right side as the enter the room from the chasm, and line yourself up with the stair in the centre leading up to the breach portal, and run forwards activating a portal you should enter through the second entrance, Though i recommend going through the first entrance, as it's easier to find your way through and get into.
Note 9: If you ever find yourself lost inside this maze, Try heading to whatever corner faces the centre and active a portal, if you on the right track, all but one platform will allow you to get to the end of this section using that method, The only platform that does not work with this trick is the second platform, instead you have to do the opposite corner.
If that explanation was bad then let me try and explain it how Nmoto did to me. Think of the centre pillar as north, The direction you always want to be heading, when you go onto a platform, if you look at the centre you will notice one wall will be more in line with the centre than the other, that is the portal you want to go through, The reason for the second platform being different is because both walls face the centre almost exactly, And so the next best tell is behind you, If you think of the platform being on the other side then it would be nearer.
My person thoughts while mapping this maze:
When i started mapping this maze i thought it was going to take forever, I mean it's the lucidity maze, Maze of fate sender, surely it's going to have many tricks and turns, and that it did, I know i certainly would still be mapping this place if those at the explorers guild didn't help me out, it was the first map i had actually started while being apart of the guild, without Laieus' help with mapping the maze to begin with, i would have little to no idea which portals lead to what still, and without Nmoto's tricks on how to remember getting through, i'd still be trying to figure a way on how to remember it easily. This map was one of the harder ones to map, with its many portals and tricks, Even a shamblix, i was thrown around wondering if i was inside the maze or not, Of Course there was some easy ways to check, i would create a codex, and leave it on the ground, Leave the room and re-enter, It's more than likely that if i re-entered and there was a codex there, then i was no-longer in the maze, and if there wasn't, it means i was in the maze. The mapping of this maze signified my new passion for exploring and sharing the dream with others, i hope to later do more maps of, well where ever.
There are definitely things i'd like to improve on with mapping in general, this map was the second i created, though first i've finished, including placing it on theses scrolls. I wish to edit my other maps some to make them more clear and readable, also, this map gotta a little burnt, due to all the fire the paper got a little red, and...ashed, gonna try protecting my maps better next time.
I've already mentioned them once both Laieus and Nmoto have been a great help in creating this map, I would feel it wrong if i didn't credit them both here as well as myself, hopefully we at the explorers guild can provide more maps, Hopefully good ones, for the dreamers of this city.
