About

The Curse of the Crimson Cauldron is the 3rd Quest to be added into Rec Room. It is the sequel to the first quest, the Quest for the Golden Trophy.

CrimsonMap

In the #RecRoomOriginal room ^CrimsonCauldron, 1 to 4 players use medieval and fantasy weaponry to team up and fight through 9 acts of fantasy "monsters" put together by the art department. Successfully completing all 9 acts and defeating the final boss rewards each player with a chest containing one item from the Crimson Cauldron Cosmetic Sets, the rank of which is determined by your Quest Rating. The room ^CrimsonCauldron is a #pickup room, i.e., teleporting and "walking" VR players as well as Screen Mode players may play in the same room.

A mini-update in December 2018 added back holsters to the game. This allows players to carry a weapon in each hand plus one on their back.

Walkthrough

{Work In Progress}

Castle Courtyard When you first spawn, go to the left and take out the cannon goblin, than destroy the shield goblins. When you walk to the right, there is a chance an imp and a red imp will spawn, if they do, turn around and destroy them. Be sure to take out the cannon goblins first, unless the other goblins are getting close to you.
Forest Path
Campsite
Deep Forest
Bog Kill a hoard of imps, and use the floats to cross the swampy water (if on walk, it is possible to climb over the large rock to the right). After killing all the imps over the bog, there are plenty of witches, red imps, and red goblins for you to defeat. After killing all the enemies, don't be too quick to cheer, a bog monster will appear right after someone steps on the pad. Bows and attack potions are recommended, although it is possible to jump on it with swords...
Mines The steam kills you, be careful! Have patience, but this is one of the easier levels with more green enemies than red ones. The first enemies you encounter will be 4 cannon goblins, there are exploding barrels to shoot, but running into all of their lines of fire is a bad idea.
Deep Mines
Bell Tower Stairs Ascend slowly, leaving one person to guard the stairs and another to go to the top and kill the imps that spawn up there. Use the exploding barrels to your advantage.
Finale Hit the magic ball back at the witch 3-4 times while fending off countless other enemies.

Scoring

20170425030832 1

Two sizes of pots that contain various quantities of points. You can hit them, or pick them up and throw them.

Scoring in the Curse of the Crimson Cauldron is very straightforward. Points are shown in the form of gold when you earn them. Contributing to killing an enemy gives you gold proportional to how much you contributed; although the game will often award additional points due to latency in the tracking of all players actions. Breaking pots also gives you gold, though significantly less than gold earned from killing enemies. All gold goes directly to your point total the moment you earn it.

Dying to an enemy costs you a large amount of gold, and friendly-firing a teammate with a ranged weapon is a moderate gold penalty.

At the end of the run, the total gold score of all teammates put together determines the Quest Rating of your team, and the reward rarity you get.

The Final Boss

The Crimson Cauldron Witch launching a purple orb

The final boss is the crimson witch/wizard at the top in the bell tower. To defeat him/her, you must use a sword to hit back the purple orbs he/she launches at you (similar to Paddleball) just like that you do to the other regular witches you encounter earlier. While fighting, various mobs will spawn around the arena, including cannon goblins on the battlements at the edge of the arena.
