Game Series: Dragon Warrior (NES) Episode 9

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.


Game Series: Dragon Warrior (NES) Episode 7

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.


Game Series: Dragon Warrior (NES) Episode 6

I venture to rescue Princess Gwaelin from the Dragonlord minion, the Green Dragon. From there it’s a jaunt around Tantegel Castle, then Garinham to find out more and explore the depths of the Tomb of Garin. All in a day’s work!


Game Series: Dragon Warrior (NES) Episode 5

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.

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!


Game Series: Dragon Warrior (NES) Episode 3

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).


Game Series: Dragon Warrior (NES) Episode 2

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!


Game Series: Dragon Warrior (NES) Episode 1

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.


Tomodachi Life Saga

So, I’ve got this nifty game called Tomodachi Life. Such is the life.


Finishing Geometry

I finished my geometry book today! Now my next book is Grain Brain, so I can learn how carbs are ruining my mental health. My brother Asa recommended that one. I know how to do all sorts of strange things, like tell the width of a chasm with three people and a plank, or the height of a telephone pole with a mirror. I have mental super powers! Maybe, if I get rid of my grain brain… the results could be frightening.


Christmas Presents 2014

Christmas time is all over for 2014, and now it’s 2015. But, there’s still the matter of presents. I got presents this year! I can’t remember if there was anything else, if there was and I forgot, I still treasure it!


Broken Fingers, Broken Dreams

Broke my finger, had deja vu, helped pack meat, made a cake, visited nephews and nieces, sold game, just a week in the life.
