  1. Happy Easter! In this much belated installment, I develop more affection for the party now that it isn't as stupid. So the game now has a couple of minigames available, the horse races, the target shooting, and the casino. I tried my hand at an entry level horse race and scraped by with my severely overburdened laptop, but I knew better than to try again after Sylvando blew me out of the water. (I have it on good authority that he *is* beatable, but I wonder if doing so would change the storyline any. I doubt it). The Gallopolitan letters of transit allow us to leave the burning des
  2. Happy Easter to the Den! So my family does this thing where we still do Easter baskets (even put one together for my dad this year). Turns out the Easter bunny left me some of last Halloween's leftover candy.
  3. Welcome back! (As if I can talk, hahaha). I've asked on the Discord to see if we can rustle up a story summary of some kind.
  4. Happy Easter to the Den! I got to be one of the lectors for tonight's Vigil Mass and was assigned to read about the parting of the red sea and subsequent destruction of Pharaoh and his armies.

      Fairly significant passage and honor.  You must feel rather proud for being chosen to read.  Happy Easter to you as well!

      It was an honor. I got some positive feedback from the congregation and I'm glad they enjoyed it.

      I went to an FSSP vigil done pre-55 style, before the Holy Week reforms of Pius XII. The Feeneyites from the St. Benedict Center were there too. 

  5. Happy New Year and a Merry Eighth Day of Christmas!

      The forum won't let me answer your message, no matter the lenght :(

  6. Merry Seventh Day of Christmas to the Den! (And a belated fourth, fifith, and sixth)!

  7. Merry Third Day of Christmas to the Den! (And a belated second).

  8. Merry First Day of Christmas to the Den!

  9. Hi, Woodus. Just learned that All Games > Mobile Games > Dragon Quest Walk actually brings the user to the Dragon Quest of the Stars page.
  10. Happy St. Nicholas Day to the Den!

  11. You know way more about the demon-at-arms lifecycle than expected.
  12. Who knows whether the forum will convert this to a double-post or late addendum, but I'm fond of the idea of Bianca, Nera, and Debora being blood sisters; it tidies up the long-lost Zenithian angle to one family's children rather than three random girls who all just so happen to be of Zenithian descent.
  13. It's not far off from canon; several characters are appointed specifically to be adventurers, and the hero of DQ3 was literally raised to be one.
  14. There are only so many ways you can conveniently translate "feathered garment of water" into English; they've also called this thing the water robe and the water flying clothes. I think they should go with something involving the word "plume", a word that refers both to feathers and certain behaviors of fluids in physics. Maybe even something like "plumed mantle", just for kicks.
  15. Some mysteries are not meant to be solved. More seriously, the mizu no hagoromo is technically a robe or mantle, not a dress specifically, so the issue is a dub-induced one. There's no issue with Ruff or Melvin wearing it.
  16. The half you don't recognize are probably the half original to DQotS. Divinatus, Jyro, Zenel the Anoinkted, Albatrassin, and Nebetta/Amenemopet are DQotS-original derivatives of Exorsus (DQMJ2), Aamon (DQ4), Slon the Rook (DQV), Gryphons, and Hatshepsut (DQX), respectively. Everybody else places directly to one of the other games, barring the DQotS-specific take on the Zenith Dragon. (Although, did they really call the demon overlord the demon orverlord)?
  17. I like how y'all include dunking Charmeleon into the pool of lava when talking Pokemon Snap.
  18. Gotta give props to @Bluestar for her description: "It's not 100% useless to run around the battlefield, unlike in Dragon Quest XI."
  19. @ignasia, @Woodus it sounds like the forum has bad (maybe just iffy) text handling. I don't know what database the forum is running on, but SET is a command in SQL (and other languages) that is used to, say, update values in a database, so it sounds an awful lot like sometimes the forum misreads "Set" as a database or other programming language command. I will see about trying to reproduce the error.
  20. Hi, Woodus. Earlier today I tried sending a direct message and got a failed reply error. Just checking in to see if there are any established limits on response length or whether this might have been too much for the server at once. There was nothing in the browser console that seemed especially useful.
