For those of you playing Dragon Quest IX: Sentinel’s of the Starry Skies (or not playing for that matter), every other Friday is always a lot of fun because not only do we receive new downloadable quests to undertake, along with a new shop theme at the DQVC for the upcoming week, but we also see the arrival of new guests at the Quester’s Rest from past Dragon Quest/Warrior games who come to visit the inn (what with Erinn’s Inn’s reputation growing throughout the lands).
This week sees King Trode of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King fame. He’s jolly enough on his visit and you can receive the following items from him by visiting him in his room at the Quester’s Rest:
- Discarded robe for speaking with him
- Face mask for speaking to him on your birthday
- His shoes for speaking with him with a fully upgraded inn
Admittedly, equipping his items on one of your heroes is more than a little disconcerting…
[DQVIII SPOILER: It appears that this visit takes place prior to his major transformation (ha) back into the human King Trode in DQIII. So this is where he was while my party adventured on day after day!]
*Thanks to King Zenith at the Dragon’s Den for the full list.
