You are the young Hero of Aliahan. The character sleeping in the bed is YOU. Your mother says you have to see the King of Aliahan today. Follow her and she will show you the path leading to the castle of Aliahan.
GO TO SEE THE KING
Go straight ahead and enter the castle. Take the stairs in front of you to get to the second floor. Approach the King and listen to what he has to say. "Thy enemy shall be the Archfiend Baramos," says the King. Trusting you to succeed, he will give you 50 pieces of Gold.
RECRUIT YOUR ALLIES
The King and his counselor say traveling alone will be too dangerous. You need to organize an expedition party. At Luisa's Place, the eatery located in the northwest corner of the castle town of Aliahan, you can recruit up to three allies to help you in your quest. Walk up to the counter in the back, face Luisa (the woman behind the counter) and press the A Button. The Command Window will come up. Select TALK and press the A Button to talk to her. When asked what you want, select ADD MEMBER. She will record the current conditions in the Imperial Scrolls of Honor and show the list of available characters. A customer in the eatery recommends you recruit a Soldier, a Pilgrim, and a Wizard. Initially three ready-made characters are available, but you can register characters of your own creation. To do so, go upstairs to the Adventurer's Hall of Registration. You can register up to 11 characters. You will probably enjoy your quest even more with your favorite allies.
--From the NES Dragon Warrior 3 instruction manual.
Dragon Warrior 3 was the first of the series to let you start the quest with a party of people. The graphics were stepped up just a little from its predecessors. Also these two additions made this chapter in the series very interesting. With a good size party came the ability to carry more items. Dragon Warrior 3 is yet another great addition to our RPG collection.
Build a party and save the world from evil once again.
