Map of the Novice Labyrinth.
WalkthroughEditStarting point is the top left corner, depicted by the white "S".
The start square appears to be a safe zone. (No spells, potential rest point)
Forks are obviously intended to confuse the player. They are points (A: 10, 7; B: 17, 10) in the puzzle where multiple valid paths exist. They always wind up back on a real path.
Big squares are those that you will need to walk through to get to the goal. Small squares are those that are optional - the shortest path through the puzzle is shown.
The puzzle seems to include every creature you will likely kill before you reach level 30.
Thus: bring as many potions as possible and/or attempt with a party.
