* WithThisHerring: Myers goes into Rubas's demon-infested castle with only a short sword, no shield, no items, and what appears to be crappy leather armor. He at least has the sense to bring 50 ludder coins.

In addition, the rooms in some of the dungeons [[CopyAndPasteEnvironments look the same]], with only a difference in color palette setting them apart.
