Another something on my hard drive. For this one I played through the first three dragon quests and then got inspired to make a dragon quest like game. I made a mockup which is pretty much a exact replica of one of the DQ1 maps, but with my tiles. 

I've made the tiles so theres no reason not to make the games. I've written scripts and quests for it too and even went as far as getting the movement working in gamemaker.

I tried using current topics at the time to push the dialoge. I hope the one about misgendering a gnome doesn't offend anyone. I'm not sure if I thought at the time if it was clever or funny, the point was to make people aware that there are consequences to making assumptions in a funny way, but not sure I pulled it off. I actually removed some notes from this post because I'm sure only I would find them funny. The notes lead to a quest and depending on how you do the quest there are concequences to the characters Sigril and Erril.

I bought GMS2 just before christmas so I do plan to make this game at somepoint, but first I plan to program Checkers, and then chess as an excersice to improve with GML. Once I've done that who knows, maybe I'll finally make this.

I actually made this well over a year ago. At the time it was supposed to be an emulation of the early DQ games to help me learn to program better, but story wise its not like dragon quest at all. Infact it was going to be very silly. Here's a few examples of notes that would be left in the game world. I've never written in my life so its probably not all that great.

=========  Sigril The Distinguished Gnomeosipher - Self titled.
- Only few alive today study gnomes as I do, or ever did. Which is why so little is known about their habits, their past, races and cultures.
Note to self: The local Funguy Gnomes aren't to keen on my intent to study them. One named Erril threw a rock at me.
- I know more about gnomes than any other Gnomeosipher alive. Some might say I gnome more than any other!
- If you see a gnome with a floppity hat, be sure to tell it. A gnome can't tell if its hat is floppity, unless it was on the toppity of the tip of its nose.
- Did you know, some gnomes doesn't grow, but grow does its hat. As tall as a tree some say. A very small tree, but its all the same so they'll have you know.
- A gnome isn't a he, a her, a him or a she. It's best you learn that now, before you learn it the hard way. 
"Alright sir, it was an easy mistake!". "Oh, My aching head!".
- Ever wonder how fast a gnome is? Faster than you and me my dear friend, much faster. Don't...anger...a...gnome! 
"Alright, yes I know sir. That was the third time this week".
-Note to self: twice as fast, if not more.
- A magical note: 
Between you and me, Gnomes aren't too pretty. I've used magic to give you an idea of just how not so pretty they are.
__The page starts to tranform__
__On the page is a picture of__
Note to self - "Truely terrifying I'm sure".
- Gnomes send messages by birds I hear. They're calling it twitter. 
- The local Gnomes are starting a new mail deilivery service around here. "Gnome mail", or Gmail for short. 
-Note to self: Not sure it'll catch on.
- Fun fact about Funguy Gnomes. They're one of the Horticious races. Which is the reason why their hats grow, they're actually mushrooms!
- --The--majority--of-- All Gnomes are inquisitive, intelectual creatures. 
"There we go Erril, does that make you happy? Yes I've written it down!"
Note to self : Who don't share their knowledge :@

This would have been a pretty fine entry into the weekly challenge if I hadn't known the context. But I'm also interested in what your plan is with GMS. Are you planning on a small proof-of-concept to show you can recreate the Dragon Quest experience, or are there plans to branch out from the template the early games provided or create new mechanics/combat/travel/etc from scratch?
