Notification to Players of Grendel's Cave

Grendel's Cave 2.8

Version 2.8 is Retired

Repeatable Quests

Version 2.8 added repeatable quests. All quests can be repeated an unlimited number of times, and there can be multiples of each amulet type in each kingdom. If an amulet is lost or destroyed, you can complete its quest again and recreate the amulet. Even Yggdrasil can be completed multiple times in each kingdom and more than one thane can posses an Yggdrasil amulet at one time.

Semiannual Cash Prize

Players competed for one, semiannual cash prize that I awarded on February 16, 2014 to the then highest ranked thane. I based the prize amount directly on the number of lives sold during the six-month game period.

Thane Ranking

I ranked players based on points earned in the game.
