(Instructions: Click adjacent rocks to make your way to the goal.)

Swim Back to Shore

You jump into the lava and swim back to where you started. And, boy, is it hot!
HPYou lose some hit points. (hot damage)

  • After 7 swims back to shore:
After getting stuck and swimming across boiling hot lava back to the beginning of the maze several times, it occurs to you that you could shortcut this whole stupid sonofabitch by simply swimming to the goal. However, your adventurer's instincts kick in, telling you that your final rewards will probably be lessened if you take the easy way out.
(The following option then appears below the Swim Back to Shore button.)
Skip This Bastard Maze (10)
  • After losing all of your HP while swimming back to shore:
You are way too weak to continue exploring this cave. You should heal up before you continue!

Introductory Text

Seal Clubber

The temperature steadily rises as you make your way deeper into Gorgolok's cave. The tunnels twist and turn, but fortunately Gorgolok's shuffling waddle makes an easy trail to follow.

Turtle Tamer

You follow Stella's trail through the hallways of her factory/warehouse complex. Eventually, you find yourself passing through a door into a rough stone tunnel -- it appears that your Nemesis built her hideout adjacent to a system of natural caverns.

Pastamancer

The hole beneath the Spaghetti Elemental's altar has a ladder bolted to one side, fortunately. You climb down for thirty or forty feet, until the shaft ends in a natural cavern underground. You cast a simple location spell to determine which direction the Spaghetti Elemental fled in, and pick up the chase.

Sauceror

You don't see Lumpy anywhere backstage, but fortunately its trail isn't hard to follow -- even without the sludge, the smell would probably be sufficient. A stairway leads down into some basement corridors and storage rooms, and then to a large metal door that swings open to reveal a natural cavern. Looks like the chase is heading underground.

Disco Bandit

You jog down the back hallway of the Disco Temple, and soon find yourself at the door of an ancient elevator. The door creaks open when you push the button, and you nervously inspect the interior. It looks okay, I guess. I mean, you kind of have to trust that the ancient Temple-builders knew what they were doing, right?

You hum along with "The Girl From Ipanema" as the elevator slowly descends. After a while, the doors open to reveal a natural cavern underground. You're not sure which way the Spirit of New Whatever went, so you pick a direction and trust to the laws of narrative.

Accordion Thief

You track Lopez through the hallways of his mansion, then down some stairs into the basement, and then even further down, into a rough natural cavern. As you suspected, Lopez didn't build his hacienda right up against the mountain for reasons of simple defense, but also to provide an escape route through the underground tunnels. You quickly pick up his trail in the dirt and dust, and give chase.

All Classes

Soon, the cavern branches into a smooth, almost glassy-surfaced tunnel -- obviously an ancient lava tube. It appears that you're heading directly into the heart of the volcano. On reflection, this was inevitable, really. I mean, you can't just have a Final Boss Battle near a volcano. It would be like having a car chase in which the fruit cart doesn't get knocked over. Or fighting crime in a giant robot and never using Rocket Punch.

You wipe the sweat from your face as the tunnel ends at a massive lake of bubbling lava. In the distance, through the shimmering haze of the heat, you spot a small island. You can just make out the form of your Nemesis -- at this distance you can't tell what (s)he's up to, but 'no good' is a safe bet. You'd better get there fast and put a stop to it, whatever it is.

You survey the little stepping-stones that periodically rise and fall in the boiling magma, and realize that this is seriously going to suck. In fact, this is going to suck so much that I kind of feel like I ought to apologize in advance. Still, it wouldn't be a final battle without an especially fiendish final puzzle, now would it?

Combat Adventures

All of the demon Nemeses possess the special ability to hit you at much higher moxie levels than they would be able to if they were normal monsters. However, the amount of damage you receive (and the amount of damage you get hit with) can be reduced by raising your moxie.

Notes

  • This area is unlocked after you defeat your Nemesis in the Secret Tropical Island Volcano Lair for the first time.
  • It is possible to bail on the lava maze and leave (say, for a rest at your campsite), but when you return, you will resume at the stone you were on when you left.
  • Despite the seemingly confusing nature of the maze, there are in fact only 6 possible platform sets, each of which has 5 configurations. There is no overlap between the configurations within each set, with the exception of the goal. The configurations cycle around, with 1 leading to 2, 2 to 3, 3 to 4, 4 to 5, and 5 back to 1. Maps of all 6 sets, their configurations, and solution paths exist for the adventurer who cannot figure them out, or wishes to complete them without going through the puzzle-solving process. There is also a Greasemonkey script that automatically walks the path for you.
  • During the final, final confrontation, your Legendary Epic Weapon will change into your Ultimate Legendary Epic Weapon, and you will have access to the skill it grants. You will keep this weapon if you win the fight, but if you lose, it will turn back into your Legendary Epic Weapon.
  • If you choose to skip the maze, neither the heart of the volcano nor an Instant Karma will drop from your Nemesis.
  • There is no message for skipping the maze; you simply enter combat as if you had done it normally.
  • If you lose all of your HP while swimming back to shore, you gain 4 adventures of Beaten Up, instead of the usual 3.
  • All the spaces have float over alt-text, either "(X,Y - Platform)", "(X,Y - Lava)", "(X,Y - Goal)", or "(X,Y - You)", as the case may be.
  • It is possible to solve the maze with no adventures remaining; however, it is not possible to confront your Nemesis without any adventures.
  • Possible maze images consist of:
