Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

The tablet we found in the cave between Tantegel and Garinham mentioned that we'd need three items. Chances are, these are the Staff of Rain, the Stones of Sunlight, and Erdrick's Token. If that's the case, we're in business. It does raise something of a question. Erdrick built a rainbow bridge to t...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

Just like that, we take Princess Gwaelin home. I know I said we got our final sprite when we bought our first shield, but this is something else, right? http://lpix.org/3122979/hold1.png http://lpix.org/3122980/hold2.png http://lpix.org/3122981/hold3.png http://lpix.org/3122982/hold4.png Not only do...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

Hmm... If I was anyone else this would be a great idea but I gotta admit the thought of it stresses me out a fair bit. I mean, we have The Best People around so that's not the issue, and I can handle collaboration if it's a job or something like that, but I need what leisure/hobby time I have in a d...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

Dang, nice work Mothra! It's an honor! :grin: Well, that's why I asked. 2 and 3 are much bigger games and it's a lot of work, work that I don't know if I want to do or would be able to deliver on once started, so if you're planning to do it then that's kind of a load off, because you're doing a real...

Re: Pros and Cons of Punching a Nazi Just Square in the Dick

Yeah, we've had our share of various far-right shitheads for a long time, especially at least since Adrien Arcand started his vile work in the late 20s. (In case anyone's wondering, Québec fascists have historically been fiercely opposed to separatism and have gained their original footing largely o...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

For all the vaunted and deserved shit that grinding gets, it's only when the double grind falls apart that grinding -really- becomes intolerable for me. As long as you're saving up for new gear AND leveling at the same time at a reasonable (even if slow) pace, I will happily kill the same thing ove...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

Before we start today, I'd like to go in detail on something that I haven't really mentioned yet: encounter rate and terrain types. Dragon Warrior rolls its encounter chance every step you take, depending on what kind of tile you're entering. This is very different than with certain other games, tha...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

About a year ago, I tried playing through the DQ1 SNES remake as I've never actually played through a single DQ game to completion other than Rocket Slime. And I still haven't, as I ended up getting sidetracked and not returning to the game, but I got what felt pretty damn deep into it! So I'm curi...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

Yeah, the game's re-releases make the Ring give you like +2 attack power, IIRC. Which is a pretty big deal worth the inventory slot, considering how low the mechanical numbers are in this series.

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

And we're back, two levels stronger. Level 9 gave us 8 Strength, 2 Agility, 4 HP, 6 MP, and a new spell. http://lpix.org/3118781/DW1-005-001.png RADIANT is a Torch replacement! It costs 3 MP, and unlike Torches it has a set duration. It keeps its initial 3 tile radius for 80 steps, then shrinks to 2...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

Yeah there's definitely some strategizing to it but it probably works better on paper, like the way it's implemented feels like a kick in the dick half the time. I... do tend to hate timed sections in games though so maybe that has something to do with it.

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

In pure gameplay terms, the darkness mechanic is an obnoxious trainwreck and I'm chuffed that they threw it out of an airlock for the sequel. It's clearly a relic of Wizardry's limited first-person perspective that they tried to approximate in bird's-eye view. But man, that screen's really effing bl...
