Level Number 14

Followed By Woodly Rhyme
Enemy Keepers 2

Sleepiburgh is the 14th level in Dungeon Keeper. The dark corridors of Sleepiburgh are contested by two allied local Keepers and a cadre of Heroes. The player's sole objective is to kill or capture the Lord of the Land (Thane Seamus[1]). The briefing text advises that only he and his companions stand against the Red Keeper here, but the Portals elsewhere on the map immediately give lie to that. Still, the green and blue dungeons seem to exist only to complicate matters.

There are severe restrictions on Red's available creatures and hardware; nevertheless, it is possible to wall the foes off and work through the difficulties in a calm setting.

HeroesEdit

The heroes occupy a small temple-complex at the center north end of the realm. The Lord of the Land appears through a Hero Gate in their sealed chamber when all the Wizards have been slain or converted. When he meets his fate (even at the hand of the enemy Keepers!) the map is won.

Thief-icon Thief (Level 2) x6 - sealed corridor
Wizard-icon Wizard (Level 8) x5 - sealed chamber north of the Thieves
Knight-icon Knight (Level 10) - Enters through Hero Gate
Giant-icon Giant (Level 7) x4 - accompanying the Knight

ChallengesEdit

Unlike Buffy Oak, Red has a lower creature limit than Blue and Green this time. The player initially has access only to Warlock-icon Warlocks, whereas these rivals have access to ample quantities of Dragon-icon Dragons and Bile-demon-icon Bile Demons, and both of which can flatten Warlocks. A Barracks Icon Small Barracks can be researched and built, but it won't draw any Orc-icon Orcs. The Workshop Icon Small Workshop cannot be researched.

Even if the neutral Workshop is captured and the Torture Room Icon Small Torture Chamber built, and Troll-icon Trolls and Dark-mistress-icon Mistress start coming in through the portal, there are no Bile Demons for the Red side to complete the Horned-reaper-icon Horned Reaper recipe.

The Keepers are a serious threat if the player challenges them for the gold seams during the period when they are attracting these superior creatures and training them. With Gems present, there is no real reason to do this. Blue is running a more expansionist AI than Green, and may penetrate neglected spots in Red's walls.

HintsEdit

  • In theory, the level can be completed by going AFK for a few hours. The enemy Keepers will gain the Gem seams, and despite the vast distance to their Treasure Room Icon Small Treasure Rooms, may be able to retain a moderate force indefinitely. But there is no guarantee that they will bridge the hero position and, if they do, defeat the Wizard-icon Wizards or the Knight-icon Knight's group.
  • Holding territory and staying alive gets very hard if a confrontation occurs outside the player's own terms. Wall off the Gem tiles, and build up strength in isolation— whatever form this strength eventually takes— and things are far more relaxed. There are several chokepoints that can be fortified to establish territory. All players can eventually research DestroyWalls Icon Small Destroy Walls, but the computer players appear indifferent towards using the spell.
Sleepiburgh Routes
  • The Level 10 Troll's workshop, warded by a Trap Boulder Small Boulder Trap, may be worth a visit. What he has been doing in there and why he keeps a Horned Reaper locked in his closet isn't clear (though it is claimed that the Workshop is abandoned and implied that the Horned Reaper had been left behind when its workers last had a party[2]), but claiming the Workshop denies the other Keepers the ability to produce any traps and doors. It enables further Workshops to be constructed and Trolls to enter through the Portal.
  • A simple way to fulfill the mission objective is to wall off the Gems, research Trap Lightning Small Lightning Strike, and use the SightofEvil Icon Small Sight of Evil spell to get a bead on the Heroes for it. When the Wizards are down, the Knight enters their chamber through a Gate, ready to be zapped.
  • A simple way to clear the map entirely is to wall off the Gems and max out an army of Skeleton-icon Skeletons, with their own Trap Lightning Small Lightning spells, out of the remains of the Warlocks that enter the dungeon. Other plans might involve Mistresses or Vampire-icon Vampires.
  • A Wizard transferred from a much earlier stage can Scavenge the powerful clutch of Level 8 Wizards. A transferred Bile Demon is also an extremely useful Scavenger here. As always, any strong transfer can go solo and hammer into at least one keeper early, but this more changes how the map is played than make it easier.

EventsEdit

Briefing Text
"Only the Lord of this Land stands between you and hectares of desolation and woe. I bet you can't wait to meet him."
Player researches Chicken
"You can't swing a cat for Dungeon Keepers fighting over the destiny of this region. It should fall to you to settle the disagreement once and for all."
Player researches Destroy Walls
"So, now you have a spell that turns fortified walls to dust. It's expensive to cast and it's also possible that your enemies possess the same magic power. This could still turn out to be one of those days."
Lord of the Land defeated
"Your continued success makes me sick. Thank you, your wickedness."

Sound BytesEdit

"Sleepiburgh. A settlement in the fertile farmland near the mountains. Nothing ever happens here, apart from some good deeds and the odd exchange of kindhearted greetings... a disgusting pit of Hades, in other words."
— The Mentor, Intro
"Mormondflach. We have developed this area. It is now a breeding ground for our legions of Beetles and Flies. To think it was once pointless farmland providing food for the weak population which lived there in so-called "peace.""
— Canon Outtro


TriviaEdit

  • The map shares some features of Skybird Trill, the final campaign level, in that the player can mine unlimited wealth, and the enemies cannot; and that furthermore, killing the enemy Keepers is not even necessary. KeeperFX increases the difficulty of these levels.
  • The message for researching Chicken Icon Small Chicken, "You can't swing a cat..." was probably meant to be the initial message posted for the level. The message intimates that Blue and Green are fighting one another, but they aren't.
  • The official guide book claims that this level has a Locate Hidden World.[3]
  • This realm's outtro speech file, BAD14.WAV, makes more sense if renamed to BAD13.WAV to correspond with the previous realm Buffy Oak. Woodly Rhyme's outro file, BAD15.WAV (Mormondflach), makes more sense renamed to 14 to correspond with Sleepiburgh. These files are in the game subdirectory \SOUND\ATLAS\.
  • The names for this level in other languages are as follows:
Translations: Sleepiburgh
Language Translation
French Hann Nuys Moortell
Italian Borgo Dormiente
German Pennburg
Dutch Slaapburg
Polish Śpiochowice
Czech Spánkov
Swedish SOVLANDA
Russian Слипиберг
Japanese スリーピーバラ
Chinese 寂静城堡 / 睡眠城
  • The Dungeon Keeper Premium guide book erroneously spells this level スリーピーバーグ,[4] which is pronounced (roughly) Sleepi-berg, not Sleepi-burgh/borough.
