Randomizers for Dragon Quest / Dragon Warrior


Recommended Posts

Sorry if there was a topic for this somewhere else that I missed (feel free to point me at it if so), but has anyone else tried out Dragon Quest / Dragon Warrior randomizers? There are very complete ones for Dragon Warrior 1 and II NES, which can change what equipment does, where you find equipment, what enemies appear where, and even rearrange the entire world map. They're awesome! A few people on Youtube do races of them sometimes. but I've just played casually on my own a few times.

I'm curious what all the Dragon Quest randomizers that currently exist are. I know of:

Dragon Warrior randomizer, by mcgrew
- Randomize chest and store contents
- Randomize character stats and spell-learning order
- Randomize enemy zones and stats
- Randomly generated world maps
- Change EXP / gold amounts and encounter rate
- Character costumes

Dragon Warrior II randomizer, by Gaemboy9
- Randomize chest and store contents
- Randomize character stats, equipable equipment, and weapon/armor stats
- Randomize enemy zones and stats
- Randomly generated world map
- Change EXP / gold amounts and encounter rate

Dragon Warrior III randomizer, by Gameboy9
- Randomize chest and store contents
- Randomize character stats, equipable equipment, and spell-learning order
- Randomize enemy zones and stats
- Change EXP / gold amounts and encounter rate

Dragon Warrior IV randohacker, by Gameboy9
- Change EXP / gold amounts and encounter rate
- Randomize enemy zones and stats
- Randomize character stats and equipable equipment
- Randomize what characters appear in what chapters, and where they are found in chapter 5
- "Solo Hero challenge" mode
- Rename characters

There may be randomizers for newer games, but I'm not sure. I love that these exist, though, since I was the type to replay the games from time to time already, and it can be a fresh experience not knowing where things are or how they'll work.

It's nice to have links to these all in one place.  I've done a few DW1 randomizers which were a mix of fun and crushingly difficult.  Going to start a DW4 randomizer today with some light randomization to it since it has been a while since I last played through it.
