  1. I had some hesitations, but still ended up shelling out $175 for it. Noting that The Witcher 3 included lesser versions of everything above just in the standard game (paper fold-out map, soundtrack, art book, DLC, and stickers), I still couldn't pass on this. It's Dragon Quest!
  2. Twinkie, for what it's worth, I did figure both out, but I had to look them up online. I thought the trickiest thing about the garden was that it had to have a tree as part of it. I couldn't get a planted tree to grow anywhere except my base, and though I channeled water to my base, it was too low underground. I had to go off-base, to the south a little bit, where there was a pond and tree. I walled the area off (plus a door and light source, of course), placed some plants, and that's what did it. I just wonder how anyone knew to do that... The rule about things needing to be within t
  3. OK, I'm absolutely loving this game, but I feel like I'm missing important information sometimes. Twice now, I've progressed only because I looked it up online. 1. In chapter 2, you have to make a watering hole. It gives you clear instructions for how to do it, but they're way more strict than they let on. It was, I believe, that you need a stool, a washtub, 10 units of water, 2 pots, a chest, and a light source. All of the other buildings without blueprints thus far have been super open--in other words, so long as you meet the criteria, it can look however you want. So I made the bu
  4. Awesomeinblue, thanks for your help! I forgot to respond, but I'm well into chapter 2 now!
  5. Possible spoilers: Can anyone help me out? I have no active quests, and no one offering any quests. Rollo wants to be mayor, Larouche wants me to lay off the advancements, and the blacksmith, another guy, and the warrior are here too. The only thing is that Primm tells me I should come up with a recipe for something meaty, but I'm not sure how to progress that--she says there's a ghost chef in the desert, but I already found him, exhausted the conversation options, and now he's gone. Anyone know how to proceed?
  6. Hanging around Cantlin, building stockades and beating giant scorpions. Love it so far!
  7. Hello, all! King Zenith, good to see you as well! Indeed, I flew a little too close to the sun with DQ IX and fell off the wagon--played way too much of it. I played and enjoyed the heck out of VI when it came out a bit later, but didn't blog through it. Hehe, I had to lay that to rest. I think I'm back for good, as DQ VIII has seriously rekindled my love for the series. After many attempts, I finally beat Dhoulmagus. He was HARD. I will say that I have no patience for grinding--maybe that has something to do with it being on a phone? So I powered through the fight at level 27 (far
  8. Well, holy crap. I hadn't played a DQ game in... quite some time. VI was the last one I played, and that's when it was re-released on the DS. Still haven't touched II or III yet. But I recently got a new phone and saw that VIII was available for purchase! I had already played the game before, but I couldn't resist picking it up a second time, only because I was curious how it would handle on a mobile--it works great! Yeah, it's a little awkward for me with one hand, but, man, the shortcuts! Auto-run, zoom and sabre cat hotkeys, no waiting for the alchemy pot to cook, maps available by d
  9. Thanks for the interest, you guys! The game is actually 8+, and is not a pencil and paper RPG at all! (Just a board, bits, and cards) For the sake of ease of play, I purposefully developed Baldrick's Tomb with the idea of distilling the roguelike down to its essentials: each floor has only one large room, I have done away with level building and even equipable items, and I've taken a page from Dragon Quest where you only lose half of your treasure points if you die (as opposed to the roguelike staple of permadeath). This has made it easier for all sorts of people to enjoy who normally might
  10. Hello, everyone, It has probably been over a year since I've been here--I've been busy busy busy working on something, and I'd like to share it with all of you now. The last time I was here, I was trying to spread some awareness about a little board game that I had put together. Well, since then, it's gotten a couple of reviews, seen a couple of revisions, and just recently, scored a publishing deal with a small company called 5th Street Games. It has been an interesting challenge, trying to find a happy medium between the trappings that make roguelikes unique and what makes a comp
