Hello there. My name's Rhyme. The Coordinator's hired me and my friends to help you get through the dungeons of Bastion. The Dungeon Creator's not too happy about this arrangement already so, for your sake and mine, I can only help you by providing instructions on how to solve some of the puzzles in here. The rest is up to you and your league.

The underlined stages below show your league's progress into the dungeon. You can go back and forth between these stages. The stages without the links are locked. They'll be made available when the right number of people have solved the puzzle in the previous stage.

Dungeon 1. Stage 1

Hold it! The right number of people need to answer the previous puzzle before your league can continue.

There are five main dungeons in the fortress of Bastion, all created by the omnificent Dungeon Creator. While the Creator's works are random and devious, she does follow a certain pattern. Kid and I have amassed together a summary of what to expect in every dungeon through our experiences and individual research.

Levels & Stages

A dungeon always consists of 10 stages; 8 puzzle stages and 2 boss stages. There is also a bonus level in which the Creator will host a game that pits the members of the league against each other. She will explain more about them when the bonus level is unlocked.

Dungeon levels breakdown:

  • Levels 1-4: Random puzzles
  • Level 5: Mini Boss
  • Level 6-9: Random puzzles
  • Level 10: Main Boss
  • Bonus Level (optional): Contest

You can find more about the specific puzzles and how they should be solved in the Puzzle Guide.

Stage Advancement

When enough people have solved the stage, the league's level statistic will raise and the next stage will automatically be unlocked. The entire league is free to travel back and forth between the already unlocked levels. If you couldn't complete a puzzle on Stage 2 for example, let someone else solve it, move on and come back to it later (or don't go back at all).

Of course, the Creator gives special achievements to those who complete the latest levels and to those who complete all the stages within a dungeon.

Bosses

The bosses are really all just video gamers (Don't tell them I said that!) They scour Neopia trying to rack up the highest scores in games throughout the globe and finally settle in Bastion to show off their skills. The Dungeon Creator, being a fan of games as well, hired them to protect her dungeons as they make a formidable challenge. Plus I think she figures that if you can beat them, you deserve whatever reward is in that dungeon.

There are two steps to defeating a boss. One, your league's stats must match or beat the stats of the boss. Find out more about stats here.

Once you've matched the stats, you're free to challenge the boss. Defeating a boss is similar to that game show Better Than You . Only in Bastion, the Creator's told the bosses to go a bit easier on you guys. After all, what's the fun in it if no one can beat the game? In any case, upon facing them, the bosses will show off their scores in any Neopian game of their choosing. The league claims victory if someone (anyone!) sends in a screenshot of them beating the posted score. Easy!

Statistic Requirements

There are 3 stat requirements that all must be met before your league will be able to challenge a boss. You will be able to view these stats in the side bar.

  • Level
  • Attack
  • Defence

Leveling Up

For every person who submits an answer to a dungeon puzzle or participates in a site event, the entire league gains one level. Reaching a certain level will unlock the next room in a dungeon and you'll need a high level stat to face upcoming bosses. Basically, the greater your league's level, the less often you'll be halted in your progress through the dungeons.

Kid's Weapons Workshop

As another dungeon master, Kid excels at making weapons that boost your stats and help you pass quickly through the dungeon. You'll need these stat boosts to defeat bosses and other enemies within the dungeons. You can visit his workshop here.

  • A banner or icon increases your league's morale and thus increases your attack power by one.
  • A shield increases your league's defence power by one.

Remember, the whole league works together to boost the league stats and these benefits are cumulative.

Individual puzzle rules will be explained at the beginning of the dungeon level in which they're used. This page is for specific examples on certain puzzles, what to do, what not to do and how to submit your solutions.

How To Solve Graphic Puzzles

Graphic puzzles are puzzles where I provide a picture and you must draw on the picture to solve it. This can be done through MS Paint (Start Menu - Accessories - Paint). Copy & paste the image into Paint and start solving. The Dungeon Creator isn't too picky on form and colors and such for your solutions as long as the answer can be clearly seen. TIP: If you want to write a comment or something on the image, the text tool (the "A" button) is a better idea than hand writing it.

How To Submit

Please neomail me your dungeon solutions with the title Dungeon #.# Solution. Replace the first # with the dungeon number your solution(s) pertain to. The second # is for the stage/level number. Include your name with your solution otherwise I will just use your full username.

For graphic solutions, upload your solution to an image hosting site (ie: imgur, photobucket, imageshack etc). Copy the direct link of the image from the hosting site and paste it on a blank petpage as a link or image. Then, send me the url of your petpage.

Specific Examples

If you need specific examples for certain puzzles please don't be shy. Just ask and I'll provide one!

Flow Puzzle Example:

The Shadow Boy

Bastion is frequently visited by a little Shadow Boy who will randomly appear and ask people if they want to travel with him. When you click on him he'll take you to Limbo where you can view site extras and/or events. Site extras include my portfolio, pet customizations, habitarium gifting, a summary of Bastion's history and links to some of my favourite sites and personal petpages. These site extras do not raise any stats.

Limbo Events

On rare occasions, the little Shadow Boy will appear right at the main gates (main menu) and ask for your help with an event in Limbo. These events can be anything from a new boss to graphics competition to whatever. For every person who helps the Boy, the league gains a level. The Boy himself will reward the top helpers with a special graphic, badge and/or render. More details will be provided by the Boy himself as he makes his appearances.

Somewhere out there, the mysterious Dungeon Creator is always revamping her dungeons. The Creator loves to ask me what puzzles and tricks she can implement within a dungeon and now I pass on this question to you.

If you have an idea for a puzzle. Suggest it here. We are looking for simple puzzles whose concepts can be reused and range in difficulty. Puzzles should require nothing more than your brain and perhaps MS Paint software to complete.
