I am new to HSL, but am enjoying it very much.
Today I got the human wizard to level 4 in Mask of the Boy King, and then promptly got killed by two spirits in the first room. :( Still fun.
So I started over.
My current game, same quest, Mask of the Boy King, has seen the intrepid wizard completely clear level 1 of the tomb. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a way to get to level 2.
Perhaps I am blind, but I've been all over the level numerous times. On the minimap, there is a blinking dot representing the wizard, and another one representing the square from which the quest began, the one that has the rope to the entrance shaft. There are no other blinking dots on the minimap.
In my other game, there was another rope on every level that lead upwards to the next level, and as soon as I found it, there would be a blinking dot for it on the minimap. But I just can't see one in the present game.
Since I am new to the game, I thought I'd report it here. Is it supposed to happen that in some games there is no exit? Or that there is something I'm supposed to do to reveal it? Seems odd that I didn't have to do that in the previous game.
