What does DQ mean to you? - Deadline April 6th

Reminder that the deadline for the "What does DQ mean to you project" is April 6th. If you would like to help with this project check it out: http://www.woodus.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=31511
 

I've had this idea for a while, and I thought, "I'll wait until I see what Holey Heroes and Masters of the Masks are." However, I realized that it would be best to finish this sooner rather than later, so that if neither of them are related to DQ, this can persuade them to start localization (if they haven't already).

So yes, welcome to the "What does DQ mean to you?" topic! This is a small, simple project that I've been thinking about for a little while, and now I'm finally posting about it.

What is the project about?

The project is a small and simple one that probably won't take too much time, but if pulled off successfully, it could do quite well for our chances of getting Dragon Quest games localized to the West.

"What does DQ mean to you?" is a project with a very simple idea: the same question it's named by. What does Dragon Quest mean to you? That simple question is all you need to answer. In a way, this is a petition of sorts, but it's not really; it's a collection of what the games mean to us, DQ fans.

Dragon Geo updated to 1.09

Hey guys, it's been a while! Just wanted to let you guys know that I just posted a new update (1.09) of Dragon Geo on the Google Play Store! Here's the list of changes:

* 1.09:
- New maps added for Dragon Warrior III [NES]: Castle of Baramos, Castle of Zoma, Cave of Necrogond, Cave Northwest of Tantegel, Cave Southeast of Samanao, Cave Southwest of Tantegel, Tower of Arp, Tower of Garuna, Tower West of Kol.
- Several new backgrounds added for the title screen.
- Optimized for 240p and 540p devices.

With this update, all the maps from the NES version of Dragon Warrior III are available for viewing in Dragon Geo! The update is now live on Google Play!

Now, onto something that's not Dragon Geo (or Dragon Quest) related, I released a new app called CHRONO MAPS, which is map app that is similar to Dragon Geo, but for Chrono Trigger. It's kind of my tribute to Chrono Trigger, as Chrono Trigger celebrates it's 20th anniversary this year! It is on the Google Play Store, in which you can check it out here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ycorner.chronomaps

Announcing Kiefer's #QuestToTheWest

DQForTheWest_Logo2.png

 
  
Welcome to the third campaign in a series of contests called "Dragon Quest for the West".  The purpose of these contests is to create a social media firestorm with the intention of increasing awareness of the Dragon Quest series and getting the attention of the series' creators and other parties who have the power (but not yet the incentive) to bring these games to the west.
 
Your mission in this contest is to create an advertisement for Dragon Quest VII, focused on Kiefer!

kiefer01.png
 
 

Each entrant has to come up with at least one piece of art done in the concept of an advertisement for DQ7 using Kiefer.  The sky is the limit, anything you can think of. 
 
Are you a lousy artist who thinks this contest is not for you?  Well don't run away just yet!  There are plenty of options for you to not only participate in this contest, but also to win!  Instead of a drawing or a beautifully Photoshopped design, you could try doing some cosplay and taking photos.  Or you could even make a video advertisement of sorts.  You could even just partner up with someone and help them out in some way.  Both of you will earn badges!  The winning advertisement will receive a twitter blast and all kinds of glory. 
 
 
Details can be found in the official contest topic
 
In case you missed the Arus campaign results, you can see the submissions from that campaign here.

SquareEnix Player Survey

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8L8WHJR

Complete this survey if you have the time. List Dragon Quest as your favorite series and please ask them to localize Dragon Quest 7 and Dragon Quest Monsters for 3DS. I know it's a small chance but the fact that they even listed Dragon Quest as one of their IPs is incredibly promising to me.

What does DQ mean to you? (A Project)
If you would like to help with this project, here is the Topic link: http://www.woodus.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=31511

I've had this idea for a while, and I thought, "I'll wait until I see what Holey Heroes and Masters of the Masks are." However, I realized that it would be best to finish this sooner rather than later, so that if neither of them are related to DQ, this can persuade them to start localization (if they haven't already).

So yes, welcome to the "What does DQ mean to you?" topic! This is a small, simple project that I've been thinking about for a little while, and now I'm finally posting about it.

What is the project about?

The project is a small and simple one that probably won't take too much time, but if pulled off successfully, it could do quite well for our chances of getting Dragon Quest games localized to the West.

"What does DQ mean to you?" is a project with a very simple idea: the same question it's named by. What does Dragon Quest mean to you? That simple question is all you need to answer. In a way, this is a petition of sorts, but it's not really; it's a collection of what the games mean to us, DQ fans.

So how do I participate?

Participation is simple, and I said it above, actually; answer a single question:

"What does Dragon Quest mean to you?"

It could mean anything to anyone who plays it. Basically, I want to get fans to answer and have a huge collection of fans' passions for the games, which will then be sent to Square Enix. Also, if you'd like to write more, go for it! Say which games you want localized, what you want to see from SE, or anything else.

What exactly will this project be?

The project will be in a few steps:

1. Get fans to answer the question the project is named after.
2. Compile the responses together into a document, such as a text document.
3. Write some things inside, like a summary of what the file is.
4. Get fan art and works submitted to the project, which can be added in.
5. Touch it up, and then get multiple people to send it off to people who could make localization happen.

The end result will be a digital book, which can then be e-mailed to SE. I'm hoping to get others to send in the book, too, in the fashion of a letter bomb.

Why should I bother participating? What if I don't think VII, X, or any other DQs will ever come West?

This is something I can't stress enough: participate anyways. If you're one of the people who says "Square Enix has abandoned DQ. We're only ever getting mobile releases out West. VII and X will NEVER come West.", participate anyways. If you even want these games, just say what DQ means to you. It doesn't matter whether or not you think it'll amount to anything: a simple question, and you've helped the project.

Projects like this never seem to take off. Why should I believe this one will?

Well, to be honest, I can't really tell you whether this'll end up going anywhere or not. One of the big reasons why I think this one might do something is because of how simple it is. Dragon Quest fans, for whatever reason, are one of the hardest fanbases to get together for a cause, unlike others like the EarthBound fanbase, who finally got EarthBound re-released about a year or two ago. With this, all you're required to do is answer a question. Heck, you could answer with a single word. If all DQ means to you is "Fun", go ahead and answer with that! I just want the most submissions possible.

How can I help out further?

You could choose to submit fan art, write other things (like a small section for the book), help me organize this, or be one of the people helping to mail it in! If you'd like to do any of those (or anything else), simply post here or PM me!

Who's helped so far?

These people have answered the question:

Spoiler


These people will be e-mailing the document to SE when it's finished:

Spoiler



...And I think that's it! Think this is a dumb idea? Tell me! Think it's a good idea? Please, spread the word, and try submitting to the project! Thanks for reading this, and I hope to get lots of submissions!

Dragon Quest X Wiki Started
Re-quoting here, great idea to get info together to help out people who want to play Dragon Quest X :)

http://dqx.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Quest_X_Wiki

I figured this was something long overdue but also understood that wikis were a fairly big undertaking to get started, but once the information would be there adding additions would become more and more easier. So without further ado, here it is, the DQX wiki and yeah I'm still spending time adding in info as much as possible. This was all created last night and some of today and my big priorities are finishing the vocations pages and then taking that info and creating the Skills pages.

The big thing is I want people to have something to consult that is an actually easy to browse information source. Very few of us speak Japanese and I feel really bad for everyone else who has to shuffle around xn--10etc using Google Translate over and over again, or have to browse through threads on here that may or may not have all the info organized just right. Let's make this easier for not just us, but people who want to play the game!

Especially over twitter, I've had a lot of people wanna get into it from screenshots and GIFs I made, but have been worried about the ease of entry and the fact that it's hard to go in blind.

This isn't a way of saying this forum isn't a wonderful resource. In fact, it's the only real resource for English players and it's been immensely helpful. I was hoping they could maybe co-exist or we could all help by contributing to this, if we have time. If not, it's okay. I'm willing to and already am doing all of the info myself (Dee helped on image stuff and organizing/coding some sections that needed repeat values). The big thing is I want to just make something everyone and anyone can use to play this game.

But hey how does it look? I've done the most work on the Vocations category page so far and Warrior is all but done as far as basic description and skills go. I don't know what else to add from there. Probably stuff about its vocation quests. AND YEAH I know that Dragon Quest IX's wacky localization puns are very frown-worthy but in the heat of the moment I decided to adhere to it when putting this info in. We can sort out later. After all none of the info is like, set in stone. It's a wiki. The real thing is to get it on there in the first place and edit later. I'm going out for now so I figured I'd show you guys what today gave way to.

http://dqx.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Vocations

http://dqx.wikia.com/wiki/Warrior

also wanna color code the Weapon skills and Passive skills like, maybe light red and light green, so the skill charts read a lil better.
