On the 1st floor of a keep, is there a way to get into the empty courtyards?

    Just as title says: On the 1st floor of a keep, is there a way to get into the empty courtyards?

    I think i read something along while back that you could place a house tele in there some how.
    I have tried to find info on it but to no avail.

    Anyone know if its possible or not?

    I have not had a keep but would it be possible to use an icy patch to "fall" down a level?

    Im not 100% sure, but once saw someone posting a picture with a house teleporter inside the closed room. Although the post also said that he was unable to lock down the teleporter, so I think that you cant use the rooms even if you get inside.
    I believe the trick here was to have someone standing in the room when the keep was placed.

    I heard ages ago that you used to be able to place a mouse hole and then polymorph into a mouse and go through it. Would be cool if that was true, but I think this may be a myth and can you even get mouse holes anymore?

    This was also my understanding. I guess a trip to test centre would be the answer.

    I don't know if it still works, but you would mark a rune in the area, place the Keep, then make it public. It was a waste of time though, because you can't lock anything down in those areas. I have had pets go into those areas when you release them from a statue. Those pets are always bonded, so it is easy to get them out.

    Use a mouse hole from Spring Cleaning and Polymorph into a Slime still works.

    I believe that exploit was fixed after people started dumping statues all over the landscape impeding movement. In any case it was/is an exploit so the 'how to' could not be shared here in any case.
