So yes, a good friend of mine and I were wandering through the Redwood Forest and we unwittingly stumbled across the fabled Pit of Despair. Intrigued and amused by the signs surrounding it as well as the reference to The Princess Bride we valiantly set off to embark on our Pit Journies. We have made the following discoveries of the Pit. First of which, if you let gold sit for too long it disappears. We had made elaborate paths of gold marking our ways. Basically, all one would have to do is press Z and you could get out. As we were backtracking at one point we suddenly noticed our gold markers ended in strangely abrupt locations. Rather disconcerted we pressed forward solving in just around 5 hours the skull puzzle and the artifact puzzle. In retrospect, we took far longer than needed. Delighted by our ingenuity despite the amount of time it took us to solve the puzzles we pressed through the final maze. Just after opening the chests and seeing the contents spill over the floor we went to pick up the first item. It was at this time my computer crashed leaving us with nothing except five hours of our lives gone forever. In an act of masochism we are planning our return to the Pit to conquer it once more and reap whatever crappy items it may hold.

Dude you have a sick mind ! Good luck! I've actually never tried the pits... I've done pretty much everythign else in the Peninsula, but never had the ambition (or stupity) to tackle the pits. Tell us how you make out next time!

The gold disappears for two reasons (both which must be true for objects in DS to disappear)

1) The object(s) are outside the current frustrum (the part of the map that is currently loaded)
2) After a certain time
