In this one post I do quite a number of things that are important to advancing in Dragon Warrior. I start out in Cantlin and travel off to Hauksness. There I find and retrieve Erdrick’s Armor, which is one piece towards defeating the Dragonlord. Then I obtain Erdrick’s Token in the swamp, the Rainbow Drop south of Rimuldar, create the Rainbow Bridge and retrieve Erdrick’s Sword in Charlock Castle, the home of the Dragonlord.
I try to go to Cantlin, but I have to level up, a lot. I spend quite a bit of time in the tomb behind Garinham leveling up. On my way to Cantlin I encounter three new creatures for our bestiary. I finally make it to Cantlin where I learn a LOT of very useful information as to the whereabouts of Erdrick’s artifacts.
That’s right, run PyGame (in all it’s Pythonic glory) IN THE BROWSER! All in all, it’s a rough draft. The code isn’t fully documented because really, it’s ported from other places where there IS documentation (pygame, gamejs, etc.) Anywhere where the functions/classes don’t QUITE act like their pygame equivalent I make a note of though, so that you aren’t tripped up.
Garin’s Tomb, Staff of Rain, Stones of Sunlight, and levels, oh my! Here I gain the Silver Harp from Garin’s Tomb, and then obtain those other items from where else I need them. Once I obtain these items I gain some levels, reaching level 16 before I try my next stint.
So that’s what we got going, a new online store selling lots of pop culture collectibles. At least, that’s the idea. I’d appreciate it if you need some sort of collectible give me a holler and I’ll see what I can hook you up with. I’m hoping this can provide me with an additional income source, as you know, my part time job won’t last forever (as it stands now).
I got three new Pokémon, evolved two new forms of Eevee, hatched three eggs, and earned some medals. In between I caught a bunch of Pokémon. Then I gained a level. I hope to try to employ my morning Pokémon GO routine this week during the week as well, at least Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. We’ll see how it goes, but it should be fun. It’s better than sleeping!
In this episode I head from Kol down south through the Marsh Cave to Rimuldar. There I explore the town and get some magic keys. Rimuldar is FULL of clues about how to get through the game, so it’s important we talk to everyone. Also, go around the town to the key shop. Lastly, we gather some gold and experience to buy some magic armor.
I’ve decided that my new morning routine while it’s summer, that is the days I’m not working at my job in the morning, where I have to leave at 10:30, I’m going to take a walk and play Pokémon GO. It’ll help me from dozing on the couch in the morning, and maybe I’ll even rake in some extra experience now that they’re doing those daily streak things. You know, first pokéstop streak, catch streak, etc.
Now that we’re level 9 I venture off to get the Fighter’s Ring from the Marsh/Mountain Cave south of Garinham. I accomplish my mission, and then decide I’ll venture around the cave for a bit and gain some experience. Unfortunately, I die, but that doesn’t get me down!
Asher covers ending rank “H”, and then endings rank “F” through “A” in chronological order (that is progressing from shortest to longest and fullest). This game has trouble making sense, and there’s a lot of backtracking. Is the final ending worth it? We shall see…
Hitting level 8 we venture off and to the north and east to the village of Kol. In Kol we learn a couple interesting things, including picking up a hidden item (that we knew of beforehand). It turns out we actually want the Large Shield from Garinham, but we also do want the Half Plat from Kol, both things we accomplish (as well as getting to level 9).
In this post I will be going through ending ranking “G”, as it requires a little different activity than the other endings. However, this ending also introduces us to Chapters 2 and 3, which I’ll use for reference in the coming post about endings H, and A through F. Can Alyssa make it out of a zombie ridden hospital intact, or will take a little Bates to take care of things?
Once I got enough gold for both the Chain Mail and the Hand Axe by fighting the monsters in the early part of the southern continent I called it a day. At this point you should be level 7 or 8. Stay tuned for further adventures in the land of Dragon Warrior!
The first game in the Dragon Warrior series came out for the NES in 1989. It’s still regarded as the great-grandfather of the console RPG genre. I have written a review of the game, but decided that I’d do a Let’s Play Classics play through of the game. This is episode 1, featuring the the first approximate hour of game play.
We work through endings I through M in this post, complete with videos. There’s a lot to cover!
I outline here what is covered in the guide along with accompanying captured graphics. Afterwards I include the hints that I was able to gather throughout the game. WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD!
I mean, there was something about getting all the endings that was somehow somewhat satisfying for me. In Clock Tower there are two character arcs, Jennifer Simpson’s and Helen Maxwell’s, and each character has the complete full ending, “ending A.” Each successive ending after that is basically a somewhat truncated version due to various decisions or things you did or didn’t do in the game.
