  1. Ahhhhh I just had a lovely idea for Dragon Quest 7 AU and two roleplays...tbh I'm more invested in writing the AU than making/designing the roleplays. I literally got the idea of the AU from this song. The AU is simply hard for me to explain as of now so I'll just write it out in story format when I have the time :P

  2. Curious to see what y'all would think, but would my team be considered insanely overleveled or simply overleveled (as of now) in my current Dragon Quest 5 game? As of now I just completed the Abovitall Tower and about to fight the Faux Dowager, and I'm thinking of grinding some more because I simply just like grinding for the fun of it. Here's my current team and their equipment: Silver (Hero) - Level 23 - Metal king sword - Iron armour - Iron shield - Iron helmet - Crude image Harry - Level 23 - Gringham whip - Iron armour - Iron shield - Iron helmet Jayie (Grudgerigar) - Level 15 - Edged boomerang - Iron cuirass - Pointy hat Topaz (Restless armour) - Level 13 - Metal king sword - Iron armour - Iron shield - Iron helmet Steve (Slime knight) - Level 18 - (Had the Metal king sword but gave to Topaz) - (Had the Iron armour but gave to Topaz) - Iron shield - (Had the Iron helmet but gave to Topaz) Hatchet (Brownie) - Level 14 - Stone axe - Iron cuirass - Iron shield - Iron helmet If it helps, I currently have 228,487 casino tokens and 15,811 gold coins carried and 17,000 gold banked (32,811 total), which I plan on putting a good chunk of the carried gold into the bank before fighting the Faux Dowager. So...would you say I'm just overleveled or insanely overleveled? I was so hecking tempted to grind to level 30 but I didn't
  3. Honestly as of now I'm fine with any of the games (that potentially need it) being remade, but would prefer a IX remake or a I - III remake, mainly IX. As for what I want for a IX remake... ~ More post game content. Got bored after beating the main story and ended up deleting my save file to replay the main game because the post game is just so...boring unless you have the DLC quests (I never could get them), and even then it still would be pretty boring. ~ Bringing the casino back. I for one love giving my characters Metal king swords and Gringham whips during the earlier (ish) portions of the game and brutally destroying everything in my path (cough cough what I did in DQ4, DQ5, and DQ6 cough). ~ I'd rather they just allow you to do the DLC quests from the start of post game instead of having you download it, but that's just because I'm still salty about DQ9's DLC. ~ Online and local multiplayer. ~ Giving weapons like the whip and boomerang and spells more use. I'll have you know that the whip and boomerang weapons were some of my favorites but I'm disappointed by the lack of usage for them and how useless they are at times. ~ Allowing you to recruit previous DQ characters as post content honestly sounds really epic, imo. ~ Idk, but I've always felt like they could've given at least a few more options when customizing characters? That might just be me, though. ~ Better graphic designs for NPCs in general. It's always irked me that NPCs have this generic, boring, and plain 2d sprites while your playable characters and *important* NPCs get 3d sprites (and even then some/most of them revert into a 2d sprite after their story is done). As much as I like both styles, there needs to be more consistency. ~ Might just be me, but I honestly wish they had a few more classes from previous games. Although I wouldn't mind a DQ3 remake either, but I'd rather a IX remake. DQ3 is still on my 'to play list'
  4. I just revived my Dragon Quest + Warriors roleplay and I'm already having fun just imagining the chaos that I'll (accidentally) cause since I'm the admin

  5. I've recently been listening to a music box version of Bad Apple by Touhou and I really like it for some reason https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeQbLmDigZg That's the one I've been listening to, although I like the one version with the rain in the background too
  6. I dropped out of the Warriors fandom because people can't handle the words "I don't want to debate" and can't act mature at all.

    I'm going to keep reading the books but I sure ain't interacting with the toxicity of the fandom anymore.

      I would say that's a very wise decision.  Always good to learn when not to engage, and when to move on, especially earlier on.  Some people take a very long time to learn this, some never do.

  7. Why am I so tempted to make Maribel into a Stubborn Scientist in my Miitopia fanfic why brain why

  8. Too little story In all seriousness, I loved the heck out of this game and I really wish we'd gotten more story...*sigh*
  9. I can't be bothered to progress the actual plot of DQ8 so I'm just going to mindlessly grind for a bit, I guess.

  10. Huh, interesting. At the current moment I'm writing a DQV fanfic so this actually makes me feel a lot better about writing it actually. ^_^' I'm just wondering how long it'll take before we get it in the West...
  11. Honestly? I'd prefer a remake of one of the previous games that haven't been remade yet or XII. As for remakes, I'd really like to see I, II, III, or IX get remade. Preferably on both portable and home consoles, but you know that's just my bias speaking because I only own a 2ds As for XII, I'd like it to be a mixture of the previous games. But I'd really like the class system to be in place for too, but it seems unlikely imo. *** For a more valid answer, I'd want a DQ fighting game like how Dragon Ball FighterZ played out. It'd just seem really cool tbh. That or a Heroes 3.
  12. I'm going to try playing Dragon Quest 8 and seeing how far I can keep at it before I get bored lol. (Don't be surprised if I do get bored tho)

    1. Marrowfrost


      No, it's just that I've been losing interest in playing video games in general / not having the time to. (I feel like it's more of me not picking up the game in a while and then forgetting where I am in the plot but ehhhh)

      Whenever that happens to me, I typically take breaks.  Maybe give that a try for a good period.  Like just spend time working on your drawing skills.  When I was in 9th grade, this was the first of many drawings I made:


      I never finished it...it took a very long time, and by the time we were required to start a new project, I just put it aside...the air brushing came way later when an art teacher in 11th grade suggested other methods of adding some flare to it...the original work was in soft pencil, and I wanted to make it misty looking, which is really difficult after the fact with pencil, so I spray painted the top lightly with white paint.  LOL.  It looked better then.

      Anyway, growing up, I was heavy into games...pretty heavy.  Though I preferred spending more time outdoors doing other things, mostly shooting hoops, and playing pickup games with friends, or riding a bike, or hiking up a hill just to see the top (despite being afraid of heights I love being in high places).  So I guess what I'm saying is focus on other pursuits for now.

      Are there any books you like to read, or any genre you like to read?  I find when games become way too much, but I feel like spending time indoors, it's either a movie or a book, and I tend to prefer books.  If you like Fantasy or Sci-Fi, I can give you some options to look into.

      Then when you feel more comfortable, come back to games, and they'll be more fun again.  It's kind of cool how that happens.  Similarly to being cooped up indoors for too long, taking a long walk or hike, then coming back and it feels really nice to be home again.

      Yeah, recently I've just been writing and drawing and briefly playing video games when the mood strikes me. Tbh I prefer writing DQ fanfics at the moment instead of playing the actual games, but that may change eventually. That and roleplaying but the only DQ-ish rp I'm in is mine and it's pretty much dead atm so that's fun

  13. I'm kinda just in a really bad mood, so I'm going to rant about the current happenings in my life if that's okay. It's really long, though since it's over the course of this month. ^_^' So yeah...January has not been a fun month for me lol and my parents are acting like huge jerks. I really want to get away from them, but...*sigh*
  14. Alright, here's some more DQ content: My DQ7 AU and DQ9 story! DQ7 AU: Shadowing Tides Chapter 1 (so far): Okay, this one probably needs some explanation: I was reading Warriors recently and one of the main characters/POVs is named Jayfeather, a blind medicine cat (healer cat). Since in the games Auster seems to have an affinity with healing spells and is a main character, I thought, What if he was blind?? And cue the creation of this story. I bet he's very upset about it but doesn't like being babied, which is why he insists on going somewhere by himself. Plus, I can imagine Maribel being his body-guard because he's "blind and needs protection" and is slightly arrogant about it, yet it shows her hidden kindness. The two argue often but are close friends. I BASICALLY JUST WANT TO SEE THE TWO BICKER FOR ONCE, ALL RIGHT??!! DQ9 Story: The False Apprentice Summary: Victoria is the newly pronounced Guardian of Angel Falls, now tasked to watch over her flock as their shepard. However, when Yggdrasil bears its fyggs, a mysterious force ravages the Protectorate, scattering the fyggs down to the land along with Victoria herself. Surviving a brutal blow from the fall, Victoria must find her way back home… Chapter 1 (so far): It's about my lovely DQ OCs, my favorite of them all (I only have a few). The main POV is Victoria, and the latter ones I'll share now: Sandee the thief, Olga the warrior, and Gabriel the priest. It's just a matter of introducing them properly. And I made the crash do more damage to the MH because who doesn't love torturing their own characters, right? (Sure know I do.)
  15. Put in spoilers because it's too many to list normally (and I myself prefer putting everything in spoilers for some reason). Most of the music is video game music, something fanmade (most likely Warriors), or some other random genre. It's been a mixture of these 14 lately, with half of them being Miitopia battle themes (it's not my fault the music's good).
  16. Why must roleplaying be so hard for me when writing fanfiction is so easy at the same time? Especially when it comes to the fictional kitty cats that kill each other (Warriors)? *sigh*

  17. True, although I've never used Steam but it's always an option.
  18. This just reminds me of how salty I am about not getting the 3ds version lol. But in all seriousness, I like the graphics and even though I'm not really a fan of the switch, I might try it out when it's released (I'm behind on this stuff but I'd rather play the PS4 version instead tbh).
  19. I find it hilarious that this thread has being going on for a little bit over 2 years. But as for Maribel herself, she's not my favorite DQ character any more (ahem that title is tied between Gabo/Ruff and Alena excuse mE), but I do rather like her flaws and strengths. Okay but I am writing a DQ7 AU fic so I'm a little biased anyways.
  20. Here's what I have for The Phantom Calling - Dragonwood so far: Prologue: Silverfire's POV I'll rewrite the prologue at some point, but not now. My main goal is to get Draft #2 done and then begin Draft #3. Chapter 1: Violet's POV Some things need to be rewritten, especially the beginning half. Chapter 2: Holly's POV Eh. Chapter 3: Tristan's POV: That's all the complete chapters, but in the meantime I might begin posting some of Chapter 4.
  21. Okay. So. I drew some DQ. But my sister has the art since I drew her favorite DQ character on her chromebook (her favorite character's Terry btw). So, here's a DQ theme-ish picture she sent me that she drew alongside putting her OC in it: And some others: That should be it for now.
  22. More art! I have been bored recently. Here's an animation I made recently (a week ago):
  23. So basically, this is like my other thread except these aren't DQ related at all. I'll post what I have for my stories once I get around to posting more on this thread.
  24. I prefer the remakes better, especially the ones on DS and 3DS. I've never gotten to play the originals first, so I had to start with DQ5 DS, DQ4 DS, and DQ6 DS first. I later got to play the originals (okay but not 5 because I don't have that one) and I still think the remakes are better. Same with DQ7 3DS and DQ8 3DS (okay but for DQ7 I played the original first but I gave up. I've never played the PS2 DQ8). Call me biased, but the remakes had a lot more to offer with added content. DQ4 DS had that post-game added onto it, which kept my attention since if it had just ended there, then I probably would've just stopped playing/delete save file and replay the game. As for the graphic debate, the DS remakes just ripped off of the PS1 games. I checked- there is literally no difference at all, so I don't get how one is 'better' or 'worse' than the other.
  25. I've drawn some more! I'll try to draw more DQ tomorrow/on the weekend as it's 12:24 am right now where I live (I need sleep but it won't come) and I wanted to post the ones I've done today/yesterday. Here's yesterday's art (put in spoilers because space reasons): Today's:
