Third round I thought was A-game all the way. The staircase is a great setting -- think about it, a place where there are a variety of hazards . . . and the spiral staircase really feels three dimensional as you work your way down . . . and there's very little way to get far away from the threat of the long drop down the stairs . . . I think that encounter was terrific.
You've made my day, Radiating Gnome.
Credit must go also to Adrian for taking my evil sundae and adding sadism sprinkles for extra flavor.
