Dragon Warrior Randomizer tools


Recommended Posts

So I don't think a thread's been made for this yet, but if you love playing with ROM Randomizers in the same vein as those made for Pokemon, etc, you might be pleased to know that Randomizers for Dragon Warrior 1 and Dragon Warrior 2 have been made available recently. And someone is planning to work on one for Dragon Warrior 3 as well.

 

The Dragon Warrior 1 randomizer can shuffle encounter regions, treasure locations, shops lists, among other things. It can even generate a completely random world map.

The Dragon Warrior 2 randomizer functions largely the same way, although it cant shuffle the world map. And this one can even assign random attributes to weapons and armor. Perhaps the Princess of Moonbrooke can equip a Sword of Roto with 2 Attack Power! Who knows!

 

Here's the links to them if anyone is interested:

Oh neat!

 

Is it all random or can one control how things change?

I'd definitely try this out. Thanks for sharing.

I'm familiar with the Legend of Zelda randomizer that's been in the works for awhile.

 

My only concern is that if you're shuffling encounter regions in DW that can make the game a huge pain to play through.  There may be entire parts of the game where all you're doing is running from Charlock level enemies early on in the game, for example.

I dread to think what a Randomized Road To Rhone would entail. That dungeon was brutal enough with its false floors, looping hallways, Hork Basement, etc...

 

 

Although, instead of encountering four Green Dragons over and over, maybe it'd be nothing but Big Rats.

Haha.  Hork basement.

I started up the DW3 randomizer last night. My 2nd battle netted me the Golden Claws. Then I got another pair a few fights later. Guess I'm gonna have a team of Fighters now.
