The Journey of a writer and artist who loves the Lord

boxfrontMy brother and I continue our RPGTrek with Dragon Warrior II.

Originally released on Jan 1987 on NES (in Japan), Dragon Quest II, (Known as Dragon Warrior II in the US -the name was changed due to copy right issues), continues to epic (yet short) story from the first game as adventures take off on another adventure to save the world from the evil forces of Hargon.

As a sequel to the original game, everything in Dragon Warrior II (DWII) is bigger as you get more party members, larger lands, vehicle transportation and much more!  While this makes the game feel more epic, bigger is not always bigger. Read the rest of this entry »

This is my last entry on our game for July 2014, Dragon Quest II.  Follow me as I wrap up this insane quest.  While a bit on the spoilry side, I’m presuming I’m safe to post plot details of the game given its age.

“I have been writing this volume while residing in Germany for a teaching trip. I am humbled by penning these 95 theses in the same country as Martin Luther did many years ago. I submit these to the evangelical church of our day and pray that God would allow anything of truth in these pages to bend and change men’s hearts back to God.” – Greg Gordon -

It is useless for large companies of believers to spend long hours begging God to send revival. Unless we intend to reform we may as well not pray. Unless praying men have the insight and faith to amend their whole way of life to conform to the New Testament pattern there can be no true revival. – A.W. Tozer

I am currently reviewing and commenting on  95 theses to the modern evangelical church “revised” by Greg Gordon.  The following discusses how we preach.

Now to talk about those of us on the RPGTrek are currently focused on… Dragon Quest II.  Anyway, what follows are my journeys from this insane quest.  While a bit on the spoilry side, I’m presuming I’m safe to post plot details of the game given its age.
