    Default Inroducing the Dungeon Keeper 1 "No Portal Challange"

    Hello, my friends,
    I'm playing Dungeon Keeper since it's release and I wanted to add a new challenge to the original game.
    Beating the game without attracting a single creature with a portal.

    The Rules are simple.
    Things which are not allowed are:

    1: Attracting creatures through portals
    2: Transfer Creature Specials

    I kind of mastered this challenge a few years ago but only with some compromises. So now I'm trying a complete "clean run"

    In some levels, you will start with a Portal or it is way to hard to prevent the Imps from capturing one.
    In this case, I edit the "map0000X.config" file in the level folder and change MAX_CREATURES(PLAYER0,Y) to MAX_CREATURES(PLAYER0,0) [X is the Level Number and Y is the maximum creature count]

    The first levels have triggers which are connected to the portal (or with creatures coming out of this portals) so you have to capture it. (I will try to edit the config files to handle this problem)


    If I have the Time I will make a "No Portal Campagne" for Keeper fx. editing the config files a bit.

    Level 20 is a challenge but totally possible without a portal.

    If you are interested in my strategies just ask me and I will post them in this thread.

    Greetings from Germany

    Edit: Level 7 beaten

    I don't think later levels will be possible, plenty of heroes that can one-shot a lvl 10 imp, including the Avatar which has a heal as well..

    Unless this isn't an imp-only run, in which case Lightning spam will solve all your issues, just need the gold for it, but since plenty of levels have enough gold + you don't have to spend on rooms/training I guess that's quite doable

    Update:
    I did it. It's completely possible to beat the game without attracting a single creature. Most of the maps have neutral creatures you can use. Level 20 was quite a challenge. (Tentacle lvl 10 are hard to fight)

    Impressive. But I guess the prison is your friend.

    Did you allow capturing/converting heroes, or use neutral enemies then?

    I think an imp/spells-only run is more interesting :P

    I regularly did this challenge when I was young, and just used a and Graveyard/Scavenger/Prison/Torture Chamber to expand my roster.

    Wouldn't be possible with Skybird Trill.
    or that is the question

    Everything is allowed besides getting creatures out of your portal and/or Creature Transfer.
    Neutral enemies are the main way to go. Prison/Torture Chamber was rarely used by me, you have to kill enemies first which is quite difficult without a creature.

    Sometimes the strategies are quite cheesy (like Lightning Strike the whole enemy dungeon) Maybe a few extra rules would be doable. I think of no spell and/or no prison.
    A solo Imp run is impossible in my opinion.

    How about no possession.
