So Dragon Quest V won the poll and I have to say I am very excited to play it.

With that being said, the game doesn't run properly. I may have found something to fix it, but no guarantees. So if this Let's Play stops suddenly, I apologize. I really want to play this game, so it would be great if I can.

I have the option to name my hero, but I don't know what the default name is because there is none! So I name our hero after my son, Michael.

We start out in a castle

55169

Apparently Dragon Quest V will be good for my Spanish studies :lol:

55170

That's an interesting description of both a baby and an ox.

Then our hero's father, who has an absurd moustache, comes up with some really dumb name that I can't remember like Madison or something. His wife than smartly suggests Michael

55171

Don't you be insulting my son's name :nonono:

Then the woman coughs

55172

Is she alright?

55173

Doesn't matter! Logo time!

55174

My moustachio'd father than laughs at the absurdity and I find myself on a ship in an interesting purple outfit. I do some exploring.

55175

My father must be very special

55176

What's he looking for?

55177

That's a long time!

Anyways, the ship docks and I meet a man with a very rude daughter who storms by loudly.

55178

Mr. Briscoletti references spaghetti a lot which, coupled with the Spanish man from earlier, makes me think that Dragon Quest is very much not in to stereotypes.

He also introduces us to his other daughter, who is much more polite if not a bit delicate and sensitive.

So me, basically.

I go socialize with the daughters before we leave because yay kids my age!

55179

She then tells me that's her job and I am so far very unimpressed.

55180

And this is somehow her sister. I like her a lot more.

So we head off the ship and say our goodbyes.

55181

Business :erm:

Is my dad a mafioso?

55182

Look how adorable little Michael is :jess:

Anyways, since I'm a little kid I of course go get myself in to trouble.

55183

Kay

So he drags me all the way to our destination

55184

Literally everybody stops to say hi to him, ask how he's doing, comment about how big Michael is getting, etc. My father has charisma like nobody's business. Everyone loves him. Even his rival confesses to missing him

So we head to Mr. Spanish's house and there is another girl there because her mother came to town for some medicine. Grown up talk is boring, decides the little girl, so she drags me upstairs.

55185

No.

She says this is okay because we were really little when we played together.

55186

Thank you!

She tries to read me a story but says its too hard and gives up. Its pretty cute because any attempts to read myself are met with "It looks interesting, but Michael can't read it!"

I also get to shamelessly dig in people's closets and drawers for treasure :greenie:

Any time I read Pancho's dialogue out loud he sounds Italian to me. o_O

So my father leaves again because he likes ditching me, and Bianca goes away.

5518755188

There there mi amigo

So I wander around town exploring and I buy some stuff from the weapons shop

55189

Thank you, judgmental weapon shop owner :|

55190

:omgomg:

55191

Bianca's mom needs some herbs. Hmm... I feel a connection

He tells me he went in to a cave and hasn't come out. To the cave!

55192

:stare:

Anyways, I rescue him and he's super happy and goes home. I also talk to a slime who asks me not to hurt him and he tells me stuff that I already forgot.

55193

Okay, bye

55194

*sigh*

So we accompany them home and the woman brings the herbs to her husband.

55195

Yeah, I figured

So while the adults are talking AGAIN they shoo me off AGAIN and tell me to bring Bianca along.

I find these awful kids picking on a poor "cat"

55196

I suddenly like Bianca much more

They agree to leave the cat alone and give it to me

55197

What the heck kind of request is that?!

55198

That doesn't even... what?!?! :stare:

I try to leave the village so I can go do this but the guard won't let me leave :(

55199

I went through all of that for a cold?

Then I get shoo'd off to bed.

But what about cat :G

55200

Is it Bianca?

55201

It's Bianca.

Alright, this is what I'm talking about :smug:

+20 respect points for that girl.

Next time, I will attempt to rescue the kitty!

Some first impressions:

This seems like a really cute game. The map kind of reminds me of FFT, where you rotate the screen to view things from different angles. The characters also remind me of that. Michael looks like he could be selling weird magical charms at a bazaar :P

There also seems to be an option to talk with the characters in my party, which seems pretty neat and I'm excited to try that out!

Man, I had so much fun playing this game. Hope it doesn't crap out on you!

Me too. I'm scared :cry:

NeoCracker

Now you think it's cute. Just wait until fucked up shit starts going down and you are all 'no this is so sad why did this have to happen!?'

And then you get awesome puns and it's okay again.

Pumpkin
05-21-2014, 11:02 AM
So far I am conflicted about Bianca.

Part of me feels :nonono: and then another part of me feels :love:

Pumpkin
05-21-2014, 09:32 PM
If you remember where we left off, Bianca and I were sneaking out past my father

55218

Who sleeps with his eyes wide open

in order to go defeat some ghosts and rescue a cat. Such is life.

55219

GO HOME

I finally get to try out my talk feature

55220

And learn a bit more about Bianca

55221

Look how adorable she is :jess:

Also, I do enjoy the way the world map works in this game. The spots get filled in and more vibrantly coloured as you explore them.

So after worrying I might be lost, I finally find the tower thing. The front doors are all locked so I have to sneak in the back (hee hee)

As soon as I enter, however, this happens:

55222

I get locked in.

If that isn't bad enough

55223

Some skeletons nab Bianca.

After some searching, I find this:

55224

Well this is disturbing :stare:

55225

:|

Which means the next grave is probably

55226

Yep

55227

YOU'RE WELCOME :stare:

I do some more creepy castle exploring and run in to this lady

55228

Good name

5522955230

But it turns out Mister and Miss Count couldn't have any children, which she believes angered the monsters who then took over her castle.

55231

*sigh* I gueesss

Then I find some more ghosts hanging around, including this fellow:

55232

Who also wants me to free his ghost people from the Egyptians monsters.

55233

Ugh this is getting awfully complicated.

Anyways, after sneaking in to the kitchen and watching some ghost slaves being forced to dance against their will for all of eternity, I find the torch and head to see the ring leader.

I find him and he offers me to come to dinner. No thank you, I've played enough of these games to know you plan to cook me. But he keeps asking until I accept

55234

I told you

So the chef, who is uncomfortable cooking kids, gets threatened with his life (non-life) and immediately begins to season me. Then I get raised up for a skeleton feast, which I refuse by defeating them in battle. At this point I'm pretty angry and I head back up to see whats his name

Which leads to my first boss fight!

55235

I have the most adorable battle party

55236

Yeah you'd better you jerkface

55237

Uh huh, sure.

He asks if I can forgive him and I say yes and I hope I don't regret this.

Meanwhile the Counts prepare to rest in RIP peace.

55238

D'aww. I also find a weird gold orb on one of the graves.

55239

Quickly indeed :erm:

55240

He's not stupid :nonono:

Then Bianca asks what we should name him, while also mentioning that her mom is allergic to animals so I have to keep him yaaay :love:

She suggests Saber, which seems as good of a name as any!

55241

D'aww :love:

I have my new friend, what kind of shenanigans will I get in to next? Find out next time!

Psychotic
05-21-2014, 10:45 PM
Sorry but Bianca's face is the stuff of nightmares!

Pumpkin
05-21-2014, 11:22 PM
55242

And so our ghostly adventure comes to an end, and we head back to our village. But not before Bianca stops and gives me a present.

55243

She ties it around Saber's fur awww :love:

55244

I have a feeling we will.

So off we head back to our village.

55245

Then my dad gets all busy AGAIN and tells me not to leave the village. Always crampin mah style

Here is our new friend :jess:

55246

So I head out to try and get in to some trouble and meet a man who looks suspiciously like me and asks to see my gold orb.

55247

Okay :erm:

Also, there's been some suspicious disappearing stuff happening around town.

This old man gossips about my father

55248

:erm:

Finally I head to the bar because... you know >.>

55249

Turns out this fairy needs help and has been pulling all of the pranks to get someone to notice her.

55250

Kay

55251

Uh huh

55252

Gah, you're just the lamest, dad. You don't know what it's like to be my age!

So he leaves and fairy lady brings me to magical fairy land

55253

Oh my

552545525555256

Looks pretty nice here to me

Pumpkin
05-21-2014, 11:33 PM
So the Queen Fairy lady, who is much loved across fairy land, sends Honey with me to help get the flute back.

55257

What does Honey have to say?

55258

It's funny she says that because she NEVER HEALS ME! I always have to do it!!! Darn it Honey :stare:

I had to point this out:

55259

That bad apple is literally named bad apple, like a bad influence. It made me chuckle :lol:

So I head North where it is said the flute stealer went, but I couldn't go through because the door was locked. Then I remembered what the NPC's had said about a certain dwarf being banished because he wrote a book about picking locks. So I look around for another area to find him.

Also, one thing I am not liking about this game is how I never wake up where I go to sleep. Stupid Inns.

So, I find the cave and the 'banished' dwarf guy and it turns out everything was a misunderstanding. The dwarf who stole the flute though, Dwight, doesn't know that.

55260

Way to shamelessly push your book on me.

So I find the book but then another issue comes up. Michael can't read! He couldn't even read the warning sign let alone a book. What are we going to do about that?

55261

:|

Anyways with my newly absorbed wisdom I head back to the north and unlock the area in a very annoying dungeon that has me slipping and sliding all over the place.

Eventually I find Dwight

55262

Yeah.

So I beat him up to get the flute back (violence is always the answer)

55263

I feel like the whole fight could have been avoided here

But then the Ice Queen shows up out of literally nowhere and tells me she is really the one responsible

Look, it's like Final Fantasy end bosses, just happening a lot sooner in the gmae!

55264

Another boss fight!

55265

I defeat her and head back to Fairy Villa

55266

The Treacle gives me tons of compliments :smug:

55267

Honey also gives me a stick to remember her by.

Treacle plays the flute and calls spring

55268

Yay a happy ending! And I get sent back home

55269

What kind of trouble has my dad gotten in to this time? Stay tuned and find out!

Pumpkin
05-22-2014, 04:26 AM
Why sad :onoes:

Sephex
05-22-2014, 04:32 AM
....no reason...

Pumpkin
05-22-2014, 06:45 AM
As I'm heading out to see my dad, I drop something from my pocket. It's the branch Honey gave me!

55290

He asks if I want to keep them in my room as decoration and I say yes.

55291

Pretty :jess:

Then I go looking for my father

55292

Wonder what that could be about

Also, relevant to what I just did with the fairies:

55293

I meet my dad at the Church as he prays and then we meet by the front gate

55294

So I head out. My father mentions something about settling down soon because this is a lot of mysterious traveling for a young boy.

55295

He shows me the river, saying what a pretty sight it is.

Then for some reason he back tracks before turning around to the castle despite being in a hurry?

55296

WELL THEN WHY ARE WE BACKTRACKING

Anyways we arrive at the castle and once again my dad shoo's me off

55297

I'm not allowed to hear any important conversations :colbert:

So I go explore the castle

I meet the Queen Consort

55298

Prince Wilbur, however, has a different opinion

55299

I go exploring some more and get a lot of badmouthing about Prince Harry

553005530155302

Seems there's some family drama going on.

I then meet the infamous Prince Harry, who asks me to be his lackey. I finally agree, because he makes me, and then he says this

55303

Really losing all sympathy for you, Harry :nonono:

With that, I head back to see if my father has finished his grown up talk.

55310

Great :|

I find my dad who is apparently not allowed in Harry's room because Harry dislikes him. The first person to dislike Pankraz!

55304

Just because we're both kids? The guy is a jerk :colbert:

So I go see the Prince and he tells me I have to go get a lackey badge from the chest in the next room. I know there's nothing there because I already examined the chest, but that doesn't matter.

When I come back, Prince Harry has disappeared. So I go get my father and as I bring my father in to the room, Prince Harry has reappeared.

55305

Then I go back in and he's vanished again

Gettin real tired of your crap, Harry.

So I examine the spot he keeps disappearing from and find a secret staircase.

55306

Likewise :stare:

Then some random dudes bust in and grab Prince Harry

55307

I follow them out but they're just gone

55308

So I go and find a responsible adult

55309

He says we should keep this on the DL and goes chasing after them. And might I say, he can certainly move

Pumpkin
05-22-2014, 06:56 AM
A little girl I spoke to mentioned something about Northeast, so that's where I'm heading!

I eventually find some weird place with what appear to be child kidnappers

55311

Why... why are you telling me this?!?!

55312

Uh oh, this doesn't sound good!

I eventually find my father beating up effortlessly on some baddies. He tells me he's surprised I made it on my own

55313

:blush:

We rush to find Prince Harry, who is napping in his cell

You can't see it well, but father guy busted the cell right open. If you look on the top right corner, you can see the door flying away

55314

:eek:

55315

Pleasant as always :|

Harry takes a fit because he doesn't want to become king and Pankraz slaps him for being selfish

55316

Then we run in to some more enemies, and he agrees to hold them off while I escape with Harry

My new dweeby looking ally

55317

I reach the exit BUT

5531855319

That's one special bishop.

This leads to a boss fight

55320

Which is long and drawn out and I just lose in the end :(

My father shows up

55321

Apparently the two are familiar with each other

55322

He summons two baddies that Pankraz takes down quickly.

Ladja, however, doesn't much appreciate this

55323

And threatens my life.

Which leads to this very sad battle

55324

:(

After the battle, a weakened Pankraz has some words for me

55325

Oh my

The bad bishop then hits him with a huge fireball, literally turning him to ash

55326

:(

This is very sad

He plans to use Michael and Harry as slaves and to set Saber off somewhere in the wild.

He also takes my gold orb

55327

And crushes it :(

I'm then carried off as Saber is abandoned and lonely :(

Many sadface

553285532955330

Where am I after 10 years? Stay tuned and find out!

This game is pretty brutal at times. And it is so sad. ;_;

Pumpkin
05-22-2014, 07:03 AM
It really was sad ;__;

And the way it happened too. He was a great man and now he's just a pile of ash :G

Sephex
05-22-2014, 07:18 AM
Yeah, that part was rough for me. Kind of glad I didn't play this game when I was younger.

Pumpkin
05-22-2014, 09:38 AM
So 10 years have passed and I've been dying to see what happens next (too soon?)

55335

This is the sad state of our hero now. All that remains is his will and his purple hat.

55336

Apparently the Church came and destroyed the existing Church in order to make one that suits their religion. They are obviously using slaves to build it. They are also preaching that they can bring about peace

This is our now 17 year old hero:

55337

I speak to the slaves and its really just an incredibly sad state of affairs.

55338

Apparently they plan to kill all of the slaves afterwards. Some of the guards, however, are saying that everyone will be set free so long as they convert.

55339

This soldier is very distraught about his sister now being made a slave

I go find Harry who has changed a great deal in the past 10 years

55340

He then mentions how it must be tough knowing my mother is still out there and wanting to find her.

55341

We then get sent to bed and Harry talks to me about behaving more so I get whipped less

5534255343

It's good he's become a less obnoxious person, but this is still a sad turn of events. These were the wrong circumstances for this to happen.

So we start another day of work and I feel bad because I am doing no work, just going around talking to people. Then I find this scene:

55344

That is the soldier's sister. She was made a slave for arguing with one of the guards.

Harry and I are disgusted by their treatment of her and step in for a fight. After its over, some guards stop by

55345

The girl gets medical attention and we

55346

Go to jail :stare:

Harry is just chilling in prison, using it as an excuse to finally relax, when suddenly the soldier comes and unlocks us.

553475534855349

He says the bodies and the slaves things get sent away in the barrels so he suggests we hop in and escape.

55350

And away we go....

Pumpkin
05-22-2014, 09:45 AM
We are lost out at sea before I finally awaken somewhere

5535155352

Apparently they found some of my clothes and I now seem to have a super cool cane :cool:

I don't care if it isn't a cane, don't ruin this for me

Harry says hi and what have you

55353

We watch her get baptized and she gives me somethings and the nuns are all super friendly. It's a nice change of pace. I do feel guilty about all of the other slaves, though :(

55354

A budding romance, perhaps?

So we say our goodbyes

55355

And Prince Harry joins me once again since he has nowhere to go.

55356

So I head to Fortuna, which seems to be a bustling city

55357

Apparently that happened conveniently 10 years ago!

I run in to some jerk who makes me buy stuff if I want to pass through his alley. Then I find this man

55358

Oh, exciting!

Someone mentions a special shop that's only open at night, I'm guessing this has something to do with it.

In the meantime, I find a casino

55359

AND THIS IS SO FUN I GET TO PLAY ON A BOARD GAME :omgomg::omgomg::omgomg:

Then I look up how to make it nighttime because I'd done everything I cared to do in town. I thought it would be event triggered, but apparently you just hang out on the world map until it changes. Oops :shobon:

55360

YAY :jess:

55361

And here I am with my horse and wagon. I do like how Harry is behind them :lol:

I miss Saber :(

Will I find Saber? I hope so! Tune in next time!

NeoCracker
05-22-2014, 09:48 AM
"Nun of the Above' is my single favorite Pun in the entirety if the DQ series. <3

Pumpkin
05-22-2014, 09:13 PM
Small update, will update more later!

First, let's hear from our new horse friend

55366

Indeed Dusty. Indeed.

So I head back to my village which I've noticed is very close on the map

55367

Only to find it in horrible condition! Mr. Spanish's house is burned down and in a pile of poison, which means my flower is gone too :(. Houses everywhere are burned down and the town is largely abandoned.

I talk to that old man who asks about my father. I fill him in on everything, which he is saddened about.

55368

I think I have my new destination

55369

And now we have our villain. Except the nun says something about blaming my father because Harry is gone. This all seems very unfortunate

So we head in to the cave where we make a new friend!

55370

I think Whacka is a he.

Also, apparently the monsters don't listen properly until their wisdom hits 20, which would explain why Saber would sometimes not do what I wanted.

Nice to meet you Whacka!

55371

Hmm, yes, very.

I find a little area with some stuff and a chest that contains a note from my father

5537255373

Oh my :erm:

55374

This is already getting confusing

55375

Apparently the hero is the one who can make and use the Zenethian equipment. We need to find him because something about him being able to connect to the dark world.

5537655377

And now I have my new mission! I take the sword, which I cannot wield (and neither could my father) and head out of the cave to begin my search.

But where do I search?

5537855379

And I have my next destination!

Am I in for a reunion? Find out next time!

Pumpkin
05-22-2014, 10:53 PM
So I head to Bianca town and gather some more information

55382

Meanwhile, Whacka

55383

:erm:

I decide to rest at the Inn which triggers a scene with Harry

5538455385

Whatever dude, I'm just trying to sleep.

I then wonder if Bianca is still around

55386

Oh :(

55387

Well this is poopy.

Anyways, I bring Harry to the castle since he wanted to go so much he woke me up for it.

I do love the talk option with your party. They comment on the most random stuff, like the woman behind the counter at one of the shops. It's neat!

We are forbidden to cross the river until Harry reminds the guard about his fear of Frogs

55388

So we get to go through and head to the castle. Some people there are obviously unhappy.

I manage to get in to the castle, but my access is limited.

55389

So I get on a raft and sneak in through a waterway under a bridge. Sneaky sneaky.

I find a prisoner who tells us the Queen is behind it all, which we knew

55390

This is concerning :erm:

Also, make a new friend :love:

55391

What does he have to say?

55392

:lol:

I don't know why that makes me laugh so much. I guess just the fact that he's going around saying this in casual conversation

55393

I don't know. It's awfully suspicious that the queen would be in jail :shifty:

55394

Yeah, okay, that sounds like her now. Sadly for her, I can't unlock her jail cell! Oh well, I'm not too torn up about it

I make my way up through the castle and find this guy:

55395

Darwin

And then I head to see King Wilbur

55396

Sure enough, he changes his tune when he realizes his green haired half brother has returned.

55397

So we tell him about stuff

55398

Yep

55399

So he gives me the key to the castle and sends me to the vaults, but I don't know where they are.

Eventually I find them by pure luck investigative skill

55400

So the mirror has something to do with a tower which has something to do with the queen. I head down the stairs which leads me to some weird portal and I end up south of where I was.

The tower is locked and remembering the monks thing, I head north, back to the Church of the Nuns of the Above.

5540155402

Hearing this, Maria volunteers to bring me

55403

And off we go! My little entourage is getting pretty big.

What's up with this mirror and the tower? Find out next time!

Bolivar
05-23-2014, 04:57 AM
Man I'm really catching nostalgia off this.

Pumpkin
05-23-2014, 07:57 AM
With Maria in tow we head to the tower

55429

And this works! The doors open and I find a ghost of my father, who disappears as soon as I speak with him

5543055431

Interesting. So I head around getting lost for a while until I finally find where I'm going only to find a hole in the bridge. Thankfully the handy dandy talk feature gets me out of this one!

55432

So blindly I walk to acquire the mirror!

Then I have to head back to the castle. I try to take the portal thingies but APPARENTLY portals are closed at night :stare:

After wandering around meaningless, I finally get to go back to the castle

5543355434

Ugh doppelgangers

55435

So he makes Harry do it of course.

55436

This is Harry's opinion on it.

So I use the mirror to find out who the real villain is

55437

It was of course the one no one was expecting. This leads to a boss fight

55438

Ew :Oo:

55439

LIKE WILDFIRE

55440

What.. that's.. aww hey, come on now.... hey, shh...

55441

Harry immediately refuses but decides to leave me anyway

5544255443

He then gives me a ticket so I can take a boat to continue my search for the epic hero and my mother

55444

Yea you'd better

55445

So I have my new destination!

55446

That man confirms it for me.

So I board the ship and off we go!

55451


55452

Oh am I going to meet Mr. Briscoletti again :jess:??

So I head in to town and am warned about an Ogre in a tower and am told to stay away.

So I of course immediately head up the tower. Unfortunately, it isn't an Ogre, just a man named Ogar who is very confused about all of the hate he's been getting.

Fortunately he lets me use his sweet telescope and read his journal (that last one he may not have known about)

55447

Except the chosen ones can climb it, of course.

55448

I WANT THIS SPELL

I enter the tavern and there are these dudes picking on this other dude. So I save him and instead of just thanking me, he decides he wants me to do him ANOTHER favor.

Ingrate

5544955450

*sigh* Off to save the crops!

Will I run in to Mr. Spaghetti again? What about Bianca and Saber? Find out next time!

Pumpkin

So I head to Hay to do that thingy the man wanted me to do and they're surprised I actually showed up. I need to for story progression!

554585545955460

To the West we shall head! Gosh I have a hard time reading what they're saying.

So I head to the cave and find the beats they speak of

55461

:omgomg:

55462

I... I so happy :crying:

Not only am I reunited with Saber, but Saber gives me a gift

55463

Well this has been a great little adventure!

My new old friend:

55464

The villages, however, are less than happy for me

55465

Whatever jerkface :nonono: Don't be hatin cuz im better then u

So I'm not sure where to go now and no one is giving me any hints, so I just explore until I find something.

Also, a new ally!

55466

D'aww look at that face

55467

Yes...

Also, I'm liking the assigned battle commands in this game. I don't have to worry about paying attention to healing now, because one of my monsters does it for me!

Eventually I find another town, hoping it is where I need to be

55468

Well this seems to be a good plot point!

55469

Harry got married :eek: I've only be gone for like a week, geez man

Anyways, I eventually find weird old guy

55470

:excited:

55471

At least he's telling me where I need to go

55472

That was easy

So I bring it back, the old man is happy, and he uses the zoombloom in his weird poisonous looking potion thing

Where do you even buy a cauldron that size? How did he get it through his door?

55473

Oh my :erm:

So the house fills with smoke and we see some sparkies

55474

The Zoom spell is the super awesome spell I wanted that lets you teleport. I teleport right to this village so I can report back to the old man.

55475

Yaaay :jess:

Then I am once again stuck not knowing where to go. Then I remember people talking about prince Harry getting married, and now I can teleport, so I guess it's worth a shot?

5547655477

Well thank you Wilbur, that was great!

Wilbur insists I go see his brother and their new wife, but I'm a bit worried of interrupting them with their newlywed relations

But sure enough they're just sitting on the couch :|

55478

Most importantly though, they got a cat :omgomg:

55479

Um... thanks?

Harry also told me he saved me a souvenir which I really hope is cake




It's just a letter :(

5548055481

He tells me he considers me a friend. D'aww :jess:

So we have our next destination! Will Bianca and I be reunited? Maybe Mr. Spaghetti and I? Tune in and find out!

Pumpkin
05-23-2014, 11:22 PM
So I head south and find this small little (ugly) village with some nice people in it.

Nun lady tells me Nera has left

554885548955490

I guess I know where I'm going next!

But since it's night by the time I arrive, I head over to this place right next to it

5549155492

I feel like this is relevant

I head to that place people were talking about and a dog comes running up to me

55493

It's the girl from the ship!

5549455495

Seems like Nera is up for marriage

55496

That's always a good quality

So I head over to the mansion and apparently get roped in with the people who want to marry her.

Debora or whatever the older sisters name is comes down thinking the men are there for her

55497

He then tells her to stop making a spectacle of herself

Burned by her father

5549855499

Just as I'm thinking that Nera should probably choose her husband based off of love, trust, and respect, as opposed to some ridiculous and dangerous errand

55500

He basically completely ignores us and tells us to go find the rings

5550155502

I feel like I have to do this for story progression.

So everyone leaves and I head upstairs to talk to people

55503

She sort of recognizes me and feels bad because she doesn't want people getting hurt for her sake.

Such a sweet girl :jess:

55504

Thank you!

The woman says she isn't looking for a husband for her other daughter because that would be too much to ask of someone

Burned by her mother

55505

I see where her mother is coming from :|

Will I acquire these ridiculous rings and find myself with a bride? Tune in next time!

Skyblade
05-23-2014, 11:38 PM
Reasons to wed: Love. Trust. Respect. Dangerous Quests. And the most important: Plot Progression.

Pumpkin
05-24-2014, 09:08 AM
So I head to the very unpleasant volcano and find the ring

55510

Oh yay :jess:

But sure enough, things can't just be that simple and so I end up having to do this rather difficult boss fight

55508

After which I FINALLY obtain the ring

55509

Then I head back to show my accomplishment

55511

Apparently, Crispin hurt himself in the volcano WHICH I TOTALLY ALSO DID BUT STILL GOT THE RING! And now he has Nera all over him :nonono:

Well, at least it shows she's a sweet girl

55512

That's fascinating *walks away*

55513

Oh my! This is one of the things I've been looking for

55514

Of course! That's all! Might as well be going to buy milk hahaha

:|

55515

So he lends me his ship to go searching. I go in the one direction I can

55516

To the village that is like 5 steps away!

Turns out this is where Bianca and her father live!

55517

So I head over to their house

55518

He asks how I've been and how my father is and I tell him my father died by fireball

55519

THIS ISN'T ABOUT YOU

55520

Bianca is happy to see me

5552155522

I thought she said turn-on and I was like, well :erm:

55523

She makes breakfast before we embark on our gate unlocking journey as I talk to her father

5552455525

Well this got complicated

Pumpkin
05-24-2014, 09:18 AM
55526

Okay then!

Here is our new not new ally

55527

Her face is still a bit off

55528

Alright :smug:

So we eventually find where we're going, under a waterfall

55529

I agree it is beautiful scenery, but the way she talks bugs me a bit.

55530

I had wasted some items in preparation of a difficult boss fight, like the one fought in the volcano, but there was nothing!!! :stare:

So I head back and seem to interrupt a family dinner (minus Debora)

55531

Since I have, he gets super excited and confesses he's already planned my wedding for me.

Goodness this man is a control freak

5553255533

Nera is so sweet :jess:

55534

OKAY

55535

I apparently can't sleep so I go around town talking to men who encourage me to marry both

5553655537

There are my options, summed up

I go talk to Bianca who puts on a brave face

55538

And I go talk to Mr. Spaghetti

55539

Well how kind of him!

I go back to bed, wake up the next morning, and am summoned to the mansion

55540

Then Debora comes down and decides she wants in on the action

55541

Mr. Spaghetti is displeased about this behavior, but Debora lines up next to her sister anyway

55542

Who will I marry?

55543

Stay tuned to find out!

Skyblade
05-24-2014, 02:20 PM
Ok, I wasn't expecting this. It's suddenly like we're playing a Harvest Moon game instead of a Dragon Quest game. Except we don't have as much opportunity to get to know the bachelorettes.

Do you want us to vote?

Personally, I'd go for Bianca. I always preferred the old friend as the romantic interest, and you do know her better than any of the others. Plus she likes Saber, and Nera might be a dog person for all you know.

Also, I feel kind of bad for Deborah, but that's not really a reason to marry her.

NeoCracker
05-24-2014, 07:49 PM
Deborah is fucking awesome.

Bianca and Nera are both kind of bland as far as characters go, where as Deborah is a constant swirl of ass kicking.

I also like that she's the only one who, rather then being picked for marraige or having it arranged for her, steps right up and goes 'Yeah, fuck this noise. You're marrying me'. :love:

Pumpkin
05-24-2014, 07:50 PM
I know who I want to marry so I'm going to pretend you guys vote for her :P It took some debating with myself between two of them, but I had follow my video game heart

I'm super excited about this :D

Pumpkin
05-25-2014, 09:53 PM
~*~WEDDING TIME~*~

It is time! Who shall I pick to spend the rest of my life with?

55712

:jess:

55713

Well that is disappointing :(

But now, to choose my wife!

I based this off of if these were real women and I wanted to marry one of them, who would I be happiest with?

55714

IT'S NERA!!!

She says all she can be for me is a good loyal wife. She isn't as adventurous or whatever as Bianca

I have chosen my bride!

55715

:mymelheart::peachdance::pinkelephant:

55716

:|

5571755718

Why am I running errands for my own wedding?!?!

So I head over and fetch it and arrive back to everyone apparently skipping town on me?

5571955720

Oh, hi Harry!

Harry had informed him that I can use Zoom. So I Zoom us to his Casino ship, despite never having been there? Zoom has been holding out on me

55721

:lol:

So I wake up in a strange bed

55722

Her father and someone else walk in and walk me through the wedding steps

55723

Oh dialogue!

IT IS PERFECTION ITSELF

Coming up, the wedding scene :excited:

Pumpkin
05-25-2014, 10:03 PM
TIME FOR A WEDDING :omgomg:


55724

Nera then appears in front of and behind these giant flashing casino signs

55725

They even have casino bunny girls here. This is a classy afair

55726

We exchange rings and move on to our vows

55727

I lol'd at the resurrected part :lol:

It's hard to see, but Nera and Michael are kissing behind that heart

55728

:cheer::squee::plumcheer::peachdance::mymelheart::cake::kaocheer::pinkelephant::party::monkey:

55729

Also classy

5573055731

I think this means we had to wait to consummate our love

Nera wakes me up and apologizes for her father forcing me to magic them all over the place

55732

OH MY GOSH EVERYTHING IS RED THE WORLD IS ON FIRE

Nera says she wants to help me find my mother. How sweet!

55733

Interesting...

Nera suggests we talk to her father about journeying with me

55734

In case you are wondering why you can't see Nera, it is because we have merged in to a single being

So we go see our dad who is shocked at the thought of her traveling with me.

55735

Then he comes up with a compromise

55736

HOW MANY THINGS DOES THIS MAN OWN

He tells me I have to go check on this pot because apparently he owns a shrine for a pot.

55737

We agree to this!

Also

55738

Exciting :jess:

55739

Oh my :erm:

And this is my new bride!

55740

Yaaaay :jess:

Tune in next time!

Bolivar
05-25-2014, 10:23 PM
If we can get EoFF apparel, I want this on the shion shirt:


:nonono: Don't be hatin cuz im better then u

HOW COULD NOT PICK BIANCA SHE'S THE CHILDHOOD SWEETHEART!?!?! That's cool it's on the Casino, though, I think the Bianca wedding was like a nighttime ceremony at the church iirc.

Pumpkin
05-25-2014, 10:34 PM
I JUST DON'T LIKE HER THAT WAY BOLIVAR I'M SORRY

NeoCracker
05-26-2014, 04:00 AM
I don't see how you could pick either one of them over Deborah. The they both suck.

Pumpkin
05-27-2014, 07:20 AM
Nera and I head over to the place to check on the thing

5585355854

Alright. That was rather anticlimactic

55855

Something is fishy about this...

Then Nera brings up traveling again

55856

Yay :jess:

55857

Oh pasta jokes

55858

HOW RICH ARE YOU?!?!

55859

That is where casino ship is

55860

We have a new destination!

Also, I cannot stress this enough, Nera is the nicest person ever. She doesn't have a bad word to say about anyone. She says something if you speak to her after speaking to almost every NPC and it's all nice and positive. Even when giving constructive feedback, its still very kindly presented

Creepy guy? Compliment. Drunk? Compliment. Possible scam artist? Compliment.

55861

Is she a jealous wife?

55862

NOPE

(btw the women all look the same)

So I head over to the plac with the ship, the dock town, remembering only after I got there that I had zoom to teleport me. Oops

5586355864

I bought a cook ship in a bottle

Then I head over to casino ship and have a lot of fun and play a lot of poker and stuff

55866

I really would have liked nighttime Church wedding, honestly.

Also there are these super cute slime races

55865

They fall down and fall asleep and such. Much fun.

So I head south and find this small island

558675586855869

This is all very interesting




to someone

5587055871

We have a goal! I do know this isn't where I was told to go, so I think it's a sidequest?

Anyways I head to the King Domiblah blah place which I stumble upon by pure chance and not by consulting a walkthrough :shifty:

55872

Apparently he tried it for lots of things like a seat but found it hurt his bum

55873

*sigh*

55874

She had tried to use it as a chopping board among other things

55875

GOODNESS

So I head outside and rescue a poor crushed slime

55876

Alright :cool:

So I head back to the old dead guy and give him the medal

55877

YAY I GET A KNICK-KNACKERY!!!!

What will happen next? Tune in next time!

Pumpkin
05-27-2014, 08:29 PM
Alright, I just want to start this post by saying I am loving this game! It's sweet and cute but it also has an interesting story. I look forward to playing it and I can't wait to see what happens next. I would highly recommend this game to anyone. It's awesome.

Now we were searching for that desert place and I find this old man

55888

Thank you random old man

So west I head and find a desert castle and I talk to people and someone mentions something about a desert rose

55889

I MUST HAVE THIS!!

55890

He recommends I stay at the Inn and get myself one in the morning. Which I do. It isn't as pretty as I was hoping :/

People here are all about talking about the Legen- wait for it DARY hero

5589155892

So at least we know we're on the right track

55893

I think she might be a relative.

I speak to Nera afterwards and she says she may seem that way but she isn't and says I should know.

YOU'VE DONE NOTHING BUT BE THE NICEST PERSON EVER NERA WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT

So I find Cleoharta (hehe) who brings me to see the legendary Helm

55894

It doesn't fit me so she decides I'm not the hero

55895

Apparently the hero won't reveal himself until absolutely necessary. Nera theorizes that the hero probobly doesn't even know he's the hero and I suspect she's right because chances are its me.

Because I'm the main character in an RPG. That has legendary hero written all over it. And apparently I'm a prince too

Cleohatra tells me some stuff about myself

558965589755898

East it is!!

I head east and stop by some hippie commune (I swear they're all hippies) and the nun tells me about some bad chakra or something in Gotha

5589955900

North it is!

55901

Her dad has literally sent 2 soldiers to drop stuff off for me. One was a piece of equipment for Nera and the other was like 2000 G or something. Geez man

So as I climb the mountain that I am told is dangerous (it is quite a feat) we find a weird old lady who laughs creepily and offers to let us stay in her house.

55902

I try to go check it out but I'm frozen to the bed :eek:

The old woman then comes down and tells me she cast a spell on em to make me sleep like the dead but it apparently didn't work :eek:

Then she tells me she found my sword and sharpened it :eek:

Am I going to be killed by my own weapon? BOSS FIGHT???

No, none of those things. She gives my sword back and I get +5 strength and then we feel like an ass for being so suspicious >.>

I continue though the mountain and arrive at a really nice snowy looking village where someone comments that Nera looks a little pale

5590355904

We bring her to the Inn and are told she's just fatigued

55905

After some rest, she wakes me up apologizing for passing out and excited to continue the adventure

55906

It should also be noted taht at this point in fights, Nera casts Death and makes the fights rather short

Will we find out more about Michael in Gotha? Tune in next time!

Pumpkin
05-27-2014, 10:15 PM
Now that Nera has recovered, it is time for some exploring

559125591355914

Hint hint

55915

:smug:

55916

Almost there!

55917

And we have officially confirmed me as Prince of Gotha :bounce:

55918

Is the game trying to tell me something?

Anyways, I head down the mountain which, I gotta tell ya, is a job and a half.

55919

I though Sancho was dead :onoes:

I finally arrive at Gotha where everywhere except one house is inside the castle walls.

55920

Ah

55921

Hmm

So I head outside to the random house and find Sancho! Who is incredibly happy to see me

5592255923

Ees a happy moment :crying2:

55924

Yeah they weren't subtle about that.

So he takes us to see King Albert

55925

BY JOVE

55926

Nera also introduce herself and then collapses.




Again

5593255933

Albert is actually a really cool guy

5593455935

Yeah, JEEVES!!

55936

Ugh I hate these tasks

55937

:nod:

Honestly I'm not sure sure why people dislike him as a king. Someone said he's too kind and someone else said the Chancellor is really running the show.

Is the Chancellor going to turn out evil?

55938

And next destination!

Sans Nera :G

Tune in next time!

Skyblade
05-28-2014, 06:09 AM
Is the Chancellor going to turn out evil?

Either that, or a monster in disguise. Have you forgotten that bit of Chrono Trigger already? :D

If there is a good king, he has an evil chancellor. If there is an evil king, he has a good chancellor. If these conditions are not met, there will simply be no chancellor. Rule of fiction.

See also: Rule 131 of the Grand List of Console Role Playing Games Cliches (http://project-apollo.net/text/rpg.html).


First Rule of Politics (Chancellor's Axiom)
Any advisor of a major ruler has been scheming after his throne for quite a while. Thanks to the miracle of timing, you will arrive at the king's inner sanctum just in time for the coup.

Pumpkin
05-28-2014, 06:49 AM
So I head to whatever place they told me to go to and find this stone slab

5595955960

Okay. Then I have to solve a series of puzzles because they don't want their king to be stupid. So I get the crest or whatever and start to head back

5596155962

Ugh always problems.

So I fight the guy and the other guy who is named Robbin' Hood. I defeat them and return to the castle.

55963

yea boi

55964

Well we know something bad is going to happen

55965

:omgomg:

55966

My goodness she gave birth fast. HOW LONG WAS I GONE?!

55967

D'aww :love:

I am then asked to name them and I choose Logan for the boy and Millie for the girl

55968

I think my wife just politely insulted my baby names :stare:

Divorce

good job delivering twins I'm leaving you

55969

Word spreads quickly everywhere it seems

55971

Then she drops some stuff on me

55972

Well that would explai-

55973

Or... or not.

You had an out there, Dragon Quest. You should have taken it!

55974

I always let fortune tellers tell me how to raise my children

55975

Interesting.

Let's see what the babies think of this

5597655977

Mmhm Mhm, yes. Valid points.

Time to be coronated

5597855979

Sancho just cries at everything my goodness

So we celebrate and dance and party. But then things go black and I wake up and literally everyone is passed out on the floor.

55983

:|

Time to go check on the family

55980

WHAT :onoes:

55981

:G

55982

So Jeeves is missing and Nera is missing and I'm betting these two things are connected.

Before I leave in search of them I apparently decide to leave the Legendary sword with Senor Sancho

55984

Sure

Off to rescue my wife! Was it Jeeves? Is Jeeves a monster? Will I find my wife?

Tune in next time!

Skyblade
05-28-2014, 07:09 AM
Ending with some rhetorical questions, I see.

I wonder if the twins are going to be the new playable characters as Michael goes and gets lost trying to rescue his queen.

TWO BABIES ON A QUEST TO SAVE THE WORLD

Yeah it would be sucky for that family if history keeps repeating itself

Pumpkin
05-28-2014, 09:54 PM
So I go check the Chancellor's room for clues and find some special flying shoes, which I use.

They bring me to a Church

5607456075

Looks like I know where I'm headed!

So I head to the tower and I've got to see it is an awful place and I hate it.

Eventually I find Jeeves

56076

Yeah really?

Jeeves dies and I'm okay with this. It's a very anticlimactic death scene really.

Eventually I find this dude

56077

And beat him up

Then I find this dude

56078

And beat him up

Before I finally go find my wife

56079

I've missed you Nera :G

56080

Kon doesn't like her confessing all of these plans and zaps her with a lightning beam

56081

Puns DQ, really? Now of all time?

56082

Look familiar?

So I take a few turns barely damaging him before Nera steps up, shines brightly, and breaks whatever barrier he is using after which I kick his butt.

56083

:erm:

So he teleports away and we get a visit from an old friend

56084

This is quite the entrance

So the monster who killed my father arrives and tells me that the legendary hero would be born of noble blood according to legend.

56085

So our son, then. (Let's not tell him we just had babies)

Anyways he is not for this legend and decides to turn us to stone

5608656087

What a jerk :stare:

Pumpkin
05-28-2014, 10:01 PM
What's this?

56088

How did you guys even get here?!

56089

Ugh.

56090

So looks like they've found me a bit too late.

56091

So Michael gets auctioned off as a lucky statue for 20k

56092

He says he has special plans for the other one and I am deeply concerned :erm:

Reunited with my wife only to be separated again :crying2:

Michael just has awful luck doesn't he

56093

So Mr. Pogie buys the Michael statue to celebrate the birth of his son

His son grows older as I stay the same

56094

This continues

56095

Then suddenly (I'm told this is a good storytelling phrase, so I'm using it here to express a sudden unexpected event)

56096

Georgie... Porgie (sigh) is kidnapped by monsters.

56097

Mr. Porgie comes and kicks Michael over, yelling at me because I was supposed to be lucky.

If the game indicates anything its that I am NOT lucky. Please get rid of this statue ASAP

56098

We then watch as statue Michael lays on the lawn as days pass and seasons pass

56099

Will they ever find the supersoft to rescue me? Stay tuned to find out!

Skyblade
05-28-2014, 10:04 PM

Oh, the poignant sadness of being stuck as a statue. You sit, through the years, watching a child grow up, bearing witness to its pain and its joy, and that of the parent; precisely what you are losing as the youth of your own children slip away in a distant land, not even really knowing who you are. What a terribly cruel game you are, Dragon Quest V.

This will be a small update as I have much things to do today.

8 years after Michael became a statue, he gets some visitors...

5615656157

My good old Spanish friend is overjoyed by this

56158

:omgomg: its my kids

She pulls out a staff and this happens
56159

Oh my

56160

:jess::jess::jess::jess:

That's the number of smiling faces in this pic

56161

I am all for this!

56162

My son is pumped!

56163

.....................................................

I was wrong


I am not the legendary hero



my son is

Now how am I supposed to stay the alpha male in this game

56164

He doesn't talk much anyways so its not really a big deal.

So we are brought back to Gotha via Millie casting Zoom

5616556166

Hands off the purple cape, please

56167

Gotha likes to party is what I'm noticing

The next morning the umm nanny lady gives me something

56168

Apparently the king wanted a picture of her in it, but alas

56169

Sancho was debating giving it to me or not

56170

The twins find me and insist on following me on my journey since I was journeying with my father at their age

56171

Oh :omgomg:

56172

That's... that's cool too I guess

56173

Oh, some family drama here

56174

That is my next destination

Let's find out about our twins before we leave off for today

5617556176

At least he's honest :greenie:

5617756178

Oh my gosh they are so adorable :omgomg:

AND HAIR RIBBONS :omgomg:

Is my girlyness showing?

Tune in next time!

Oh my gosh they are so adorable :omgomg:

AND HAIR RIBBONS :omgomg:

Is my girlyness showing?

Yes. Because your love for hair ribbons is the first instance of your girlyness showing through in any of your Let's Plays. :shifty:

Alrighty guys, taking a break over the weekend. I've had a hectic week and I have a full weekend, but I should be able to update again on Monday

Pumpkin
06-02-2014, 09:12 AM
Okay so I have no idea how to get where I need to go so I instead end up exploring and return to the castle of Prince Harry

56296

This is ironic

So I go see Harry and the kiddies play together and we talk

56297

What is up with you guys :stare:

So I go collect my children

56298

Yep, it's that trick again.

Also, I find some random dude stealing a treasure chest and fight him off. Then I head to Nera's village and see her father quite distressed.

Also funny conversation:

Random Man: treat em mean, keep em keen [laughter]
Millie: That's disgusting. I hope you don't ever turn in to that
Logan: That is so cool!

56299

Turns out its some jar troubles

56300

This again

56301

:eyebrow:

56302

This is all concerning

So of course the jar is red. I also say hi to Bianca who is now married

563035630456305

oh dear

56306

:erm:

56307

:erm:!!!

56308

:-/

56309

So this is me after doing this fight for about 20 minutes.

Can I win it?????

Nope :lol:. I spent about a half hour trying and I just got bored. Will complete it later on.

Next time is the hunt to find my wife!!

Skyblade
06-02-2014, 02:18 PM
Why are you being mean to Bjorn?! The dude just woke up, and he's immediately attacked by adventurers. How do you know he's a bad guy?

Pumpkin
06-02-2014, 04:21 PM
He said he would eat me

Freya
06-03-2014, 07:02 AM
Holy crud i didn't know you could marry someone in this game. I need to play it...



Yes that's a selling point for me....


Good job on the let's play though!

Pumpkin

Little update

So after many many in game days and realizing I was on the wrong ship, I finally found where I'm going.

56639

Lofty Peak! The village Michael's mother is from. Also, I'm supposed to find a flying carpet, which Logan informs me would be a good present for all of those birthdays I missed.

I speak to a stranger who tells me I seek truth and enlightenment.

56640

How do strangers always know so much about me

56641

See, what is this? I just got here like 40 seconds ago

So I find some people and do some things, the town is a bit overwhelming with the camera angles until you get used to it. Then I go and see the elders

5664256643

Guard dude knows his stuff

5664456645

Good to know

56646

So my mother is the only one who can do what they need her to do

56647

This sounds very concerning. Millie has a theory that the evil monsters are using Michael's mother to open the gate.

So of course I have to rescue her!!!

Tune in next time~

Pumpkin
06-07-2014, 08:19 AM
Okay so we are off to rescue Michael's mother with our flying carpet!

56755

Did I already use that screen? Oh well

Anyways, I use my carpet of magical flying to find the Zenithisomething tower, where I find this old man

5675656757

Unfortunate

56758

Well thank you, how very generous!

He then tells me to seek out a cave and he vanishes, ghost like.

I then find the cave and use the magma staff which does this

56759

And gets rid of the mountain blocking the entrance.

I go in to a weird trolly system and I eventually meet a strange man claiming to be Zenthinian

5676056761

He says he has been trapped in that cart for 20 years before I came along

56762

I agree

So more carting around

5676356764

Oh dear :erm:

56765

So as you can see, I have arrived at the now underwater city of floating castle place

56766

What an odd expression.

So there is a gold orb missing, which he thinks fell from that giant hole in the ground. He then decides to meditate to find out where it went

This is what meditating looks like

56767

The fact that the orb fell is why the castle fell. It apparently needs 2 orbs and now it only has one.

So here we see his vision

56768

There's the castle, tralalalala

56769

Those clouds look concerning :erm:

56770

Aaaaaand there goes the orb

It lands here (somehow without shattering)

56771

Look familiar?

56772

Then the game does a tl;dr version of our hero's entire childhood up until this point

56773

And the orb is broken.

Oh well, its now an underwater castle I guess

56774

But apparently we aren't giving up that easily

56775

So now we have our next destination! Time to go see the fairies again~

Tune in next time!

Skyblade
06-07-2014, 02:31 PM
"Dr Agon". Subtle. I wonder why the DrAgon would be looking for gold orbs. I'm sure that Dragon is well known for donating to charity and acting for the good of the kingdom.

Pumpkin
06-08-2014, 08:05 AM
So I find the fairy forest place thing

56868

I can't see the fairy, but my kids can!

So I head to fairy land and Millie is loving it.

I have to admit, the water walls are pretty amazing

So random fairy tells me I need to find the fairy palace

5686956870

:|

56871

Oh thank you :jess:

Honey is doing just fine, btw

So I find the lake surrounded by forest surrounded by mountain and I blow the horn and this happens:

56872

A wild castle appears!

56873

Logan and Millie both kind of wish that Millie was also a legendary hero because... well let's face it, she's a good deal more competent and together

56874

One of the best thing in the game so far

Anyways I find the Queen

56875

But apparently they no longer have that power

5687656877

So she thinks I must somehow have the power. I'm not some kind of magician, people. Plus, my son is the legendary hero, not me.

Anyways, I am instructed to take the bauble and show it to a paining upstairs.

I dunno, ask the fairies.

So I show it to the painting and this happens:

56878

And I am brought to the past! Remember when we were little and we met the man who looked suspiciously like me?

Yep

56879

:cry:

So I find younger me, who is a good deal more talkative than I remember

5688056881

Oh ho ho, I see what's going on here

56882

And now we get to head back to castle water place thing! Tune in next time :monster:

Pumpkin
06-11-2014, 07:17 AM
Time to bring the gold orb back!


57042

Which means

57043

WHOOO

57044

Zenthinia rises again out of the water

57045

Very pretty, but Dr Argon is still not happy

57046

Ugh

But the Zenthinians are back and giving me some info

57047

Turns out I can fly this castle around!!!

5704857049

Well I have my next destination

Also, turns out some people don't remember Dr Agon

57050

Surely

Also, in case you were wondering like me what happened to all of the Zenthinians and why they are back suddenly

57051

That's why

So I head over to the place and have to climb on top of a tower and jump down

57052

I suspect a boss fight coming my way

57053

That name sounds familiar....

So I defeat him and get the chest behind him containing a dragon eye.

Then I go through more of this long annoying dungeon

57054

Ah yes, this guy. Did he always talk this oddly?

So, sure enough, boss fight.

570555705657057

Nimzo is a very threatening name :|

So I bring the two dragon eyes I got from defeating the two baddies and I put them back in the dragon statue and a new path opens and other typical RPG like things

57058

YAY A DRAGON ORB

I WONDER WHAT DR AGON THINKS OF THIS

57059

You don't say

So I go speak to Dr Agon the imposter and he takes the dragon orb

57060

What's this :erm:

57061

:|

57062

:|

57063

Well, he says he will help me because I'm cool :monster:

Where do I go from here? What will he help me with? WILL I EVER FIND MY WIFE?!!?!?! :stare:

Tune in next time!

Pumpkin
06-16-2014, 10:33 PM
Okay sorry guys for the slow updates, been busy irl and also was doing some item collecting and such

First thing of note is that I finally beat Bjorn much more easily since the twins had gained about 15 levels. This gave me the key to unlock everything ever, hence the item collecting

57322

Yay!

57323

Indeed. Next i take my dragon friend and find some shrine on top of a mountain, on which I also find the Zenthinian Armor for my son

57324

I say no, we fight, I win, I get armor

57325

I enter the temple and find these people worshiping Michael's mother

And yes, that is my wife's statue behind her :omgomg:

57326

Apparently they are soulless people.

5732757328

Hi mom :jess:

Why are you working with the enemy?

57329

Well that's awfully rude :erm:

57330

All the time with this stuff :|

57331

So I defeat Ferz, Nera is still a statue, and I find a secret staircase.

It leads through one of the less annoying dungeons in this game. It also leads through the place where I used to be a slave!

I really feel bad I never went back to rescue those people :/

57332

So I find that guy who engages me in a very difficult battle. After a while, I win

57333

He says he will open the underworld for me, but something goes wrong!

5733457335

So Ladja kills him and then mocks me and leaves. Once he is gone, I find a ring called The Circle of Life

As I start to leave when

5733657337

Is this my actual mother this time?

57338

I'm getting some conflicting directions here :-/

She says I should chill with my family and not worry about her

In the meantime

57339

:jess:!!!!!!!!

We are brought back to Gotha, my family reunited!!

Tune in next time to see what happens next! This LP is almost over actually :(

Skyblade

shion totally isn't predicting the massive plot twist that occurs at the midway point of the game.

Pumpkin

Pumpkin
06-19-2014, 07:55 PM
Small update

Now that I am reunited with my whole family, Albert wants to see me

5746257463

I tell him I am and he discourages me from doing so. He says to listen to my mother who spoke to me through the ring.

Everyone knows everything in this game

Meanwhile, my Spanish friend tells me he will support me since my father wanted me to find my mother. My wife of course says she will support me no matter what

So we head out on our journey and find a shrine with three angel statues.

The three angel statues want the three rings I've obtained throughout the game

57464

When they get them, a weird portal opens up and I go through it and end up in the underworld like place

5746557466

She gives me an item that I can't remember what it is and gives me her blessing to proceed

I find this pretty town

5746757468

Very interesting

5746957470

Turns out that my mother has purified the monsters which has made them turn human!

57471

And now I have my new destination~

Tune in next time!

Skyblade

Ooh, goody. I wonder what twists and turns await us in the underworld.

Pumpkin
06-30-2014, 09:48 PM
Update time!

I find the evil lair of evilness, head inside, and then run in to some goons

57918

I doubt that. So I defeat them of course and am surrounded by a shiny warm light

57919

Yes?

5792057921

Oh is that what's going to happen?

57922

She tells me she is going to sacrifice her life and such

57923

Before she can continue, a giant fireball, much like the one that killed our hero's father, strikes her down.

5792457925

This of course leads to a boss fight. Not super difficult, but not easy, either

Afterwards, the shiny warm light from before surrounds Ladja

5792657927

Apparently it is possible

579285792957930

She then gets struck by lightning. This poor woman just can't catch a break

579315793257933

A mysterious voice suddenly appears!

5793457935

Pankraz comes down to get Mada

57936

Aww :cry:

That's all for today! I think I'm almost at the last boss fight, so stay tuned~

Skyblade
07-01-2014, 04:30 AM
Wow. Michael's parents are kind of awesome.

Epic boss theme music next?

Pumpkin
07-02-2014, 05:57 PM
Its time, are you ready? The finale of Dragon Quest V. I'm so sad :cry: I'm going to miss Nera

So we head through the underworld some more and find some things and eventually come to this pool of lava

http://i.imgur.com/yjIOKNV.png

Apparently it isn't recommended I step through lava, so instead I am told to use an item full of water I just found 5 seconds earlier. How convenient!

http://i.imgur.com/xdhQpPP.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/6h5wl8r.png

Uh oh, this is it, almost time. But not before a long annoying puzzle dungeon of course. After about an hour, I clear the things and find none other than

http://i.imgur.com/NPylOzK.png

:eek:

http://i.imgur.com/lQKjcgX.png

It's nice that he's trying to learn English so we can understand him.

http://i.imgur.com/sJdb6ji.png

I figured as much

http://i.imgur.com/fkQSrlY.png

A bit full of himself isn't he?

http://i.imgur.com/tNqTQYh.png

Little bit

http://i.imgur.com/HKCBZLx.png

Boo, can't we just resolves this with our words instead of our fists :(

http://i.imgur.com/dswuxqy.png

Apparently not.

So we fight and things and then I defeat him yay :jess:

http://i.imgur.com/K2L1PpB.png

Why is that never the end of it :|

http://i.imgur.com/0xa9bU7.png

Hey, ease up, he's a child :onoes:

Then he merges in to this ugly thing and I have to fight him AGAIN

http://i.imgur.com/ZupfSar.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/RTE9dNO.png

Ew :stare: Why can't final villains be more attractive

http://i.imgur.com/kcp4FHC.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/qtYFP3X.png

Apparently you can

http://i.imgur.com/4CzdVwa.png

Oh dear, that doesn't look healthy. So he explodes and some weird stuff happens

http://i.imgur.com/9sO4Vvi.png

Like that and I am brought to the... upper... world...

http://i.imgur.com/HYlrnei.png

Yes, we've been acquainted

http://i.imgur.com/06xfYzG.png

then he apparently gets tired of his stuffy speak and chooses to go back to the way he spoke as the wily and cleverly disguised Dr Agon. The Zenthinians are not super pleased

http://i.imgur.com/Qja9SFB.png

Let's see what everyone has to say about us saving the world!

http://i.imgur.com/gX9yGht.png

Yep Millie, it is

http://i.imgur.com/xclIoem.png

Insight from Logan

http://i.imgur.com/cROL96f.png

Nera being a sweet mom

The Dragon then flies me around the world so I have a chance to talk to people now that I saved it! I think this is really neat!

http://i.imgur.com/erxT4Qa.png

D'aww. The children also express happiness at being related to her

http://i.imgur.com/h599WJQ.png

:cry:

Then we go see Harry and co. and Harry says something about Logan being a chip off the old block and his wife says not to forget to mention Nera

http://i.imgur.com/NGMHBdm.png

D'aww :jess:

http://i.imgur.com/C4JNgOU.png

Yeah remember when you were a jerk and then when we were slaves for like 10 years. Haha good times

Also, I talk to the lady about her brother who was at the slave place

http://i.imgur.com/HpSemeB.png

More people:

http://i.imgur.com/VPH3PUX.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/Ep0L52X.png

And the inlaws:

Aww so touching

Then we go see Bianca

http://i.imgur.com/8JTCVLe.png

Do you ever not bring that up? :stare: How about, "Hey, remember that time you saved the world?" YEAH

http://i.imgur.com/Qbtag8Y.png

Me too

And time to head home

http://i.imgur.com/yvsv7Ma.png

Aww Sancho

Soon there is much rejoicing and celebrating, when suddenly, some voices can be heard in the wind

http://i.imgur.com/CzOnOEs.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/HZuHgYW.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/oIMEUqP.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/ROFGDJg.png

The feels :G

Some rose petals come down as everyone dances in joy and laughter and then the credits role. I save the game and apparently there are sidequests for me to complete, but I'll leave it at this for now. I hope you all enjoyed! I really loved this game and I would recommend it to anyone who liked RPG's. I had a lot of fun

Thanks for reading :monster:

Awesome run. I'm glad that you included visiting people after you won. Such great stories (and the inspiration for my beloved Rune Factory).

Sorry that it had to end. Only, what, nine other games to go?
