Hello Stranger,
you rather want to come with me, this road leads no where.
Kalgorath? You must have lost your mind if you want to go there. The gates have been locked and there is no evidence the plague has dispersed.
... If you stand near those old walls you can still hear the suffering of the people locked inside...

Good luck traveler. Be cautious.



this is my entry for the Maze Maker Contest.

The Abandoned City Of Kalgorath.

Kalgorath was a blossoming town, built by traders. Life was hard, but good. People had enough to eat and no one had to suffer.
But then a plague appeared. Caused by some dark magican, jealous of the wealth of the traders, he created an ominous virus that turned good people to wild beasts.
The people of Kalgorath turned against each other, families got torn apart, everybody was afraid of getting in contact with others.
The money of the people was worthless since there was no cure...
And since the plague kept spreading the high priest of Kalgorath and the Captain of the towns Guard agreed on a plan:

They sealed the Gates. No one should be able to leave and spread the plague beyond the walls of the almost lost town.

The Guards built a barricade at the western gate and the priest seal the eastern one. Two Sigil Crystals are necessary to break the priests spell. And to make sure no one could do so he gave one crystal to the captain of the watch, while he hid the other in the chruch.

Now, 100 years later, the King set a reward for the one who opens both gates. Hoping to find the wealth of Kalgorath he sends every keen adventurer to this place, not knowing that unlike the virus, the infected have not disappeared.

The west gate of Kalgorath has been broken through by force, the city is open, but the gate in the east is still sealed...
Will you find both Sigil Crystals and unlock the gate?


Kalgorath is full of hidden paths and enemies.
You will need to search the place for food and maybe even gear up to reach the goals crystals.
Armor and weapons can be found in hidden chests or even be dropped by infected guards...

I hope you have fun exploring Kalgorath.

Excellent intro book and starter gear gets you excited to start. I set to night. City was very complex and detailed. Geared up with more than enough food after a few blocks. Good use of player heads and can see a ton of work went into creating the modules for the city and splitting more complex buildings into parts. Nice job.

Impressive city, feels quite dense, as if the city just expended in height due to the constraints of the city wall.
Speaking of the walls, I guess you'll run in the height limit, but some kind of watchtower /rain shelter for the guard on the corners wouldn't hurt in my eyes.

Excellent done fellow contestant!

Hey there :)

thanks, yea i've already thought about smth. like that, but unfortunatly i am already at the limit :/

The density and narrow streets provide some sort of claustrophobia feeling i guess, which is what i want to reach :)
+ making it a little more confusing :)
