This project has been originally created by zackla21 (aka Lutelian) and continued on by others such as Dpheonix7 and Krast. You can adventure around the world joining with other players as you battle monsters and explore dungeons.

Heavily inspired by the Dragon Warrior series for Nintendo and some inspiration from other MMO styled games, SoE has it's own charm all it's own. Plans have been made to move SoE to an original game, but programming issues have proved too much. Enjoy the game as it is and see why this game has held it's community for so long.

SoE had a planned sequel but it was canceled. Though a prequel, Dragon Warrior Hero's Destiny, was created using that engine. You can see it at http://www.byond.com/games/Dpheonix7/ DragonWarriorHerosDestiny.

Just an idea but how about making the ability to change classes kind of like the shrine of Dharma in the official DW/DQ games or in Hero's destiny so we don't have to create so many accounts to experience all the classes. BTW what would you say is the best class combination? Also how about a standings and medal system like Hero's Destiny too. And maybe tiny medals that can be traded in for prizes.

Well this was some interesting late night reading I must say.

You're welcome to have as many accounts as you want. I've got 5 keys, two of which I rarely use. I have looked into expanding character save slots, but I haven't found any definite ways to expand our current amount of 3.

It could always happen at some point.

No I wasn't talking about quadkeying. I've never quadkeyed. I never have had more than 2 keys on at 1 time. I'm talking about having multiple accounts that you alternate between so you can have a class for each key. I know you get 3 slots but did you think maybe people want to play around with different combinations since they can have 2 keys on at a time. For example people might like to alternate between say ranger/soldier, ranger, thief, ranger/pilgrim, soldier/pilgrim, ranger/wizard, pilgrim wizard, pilgrim/goofoff, pilgrim/monk and so on. I never have more than 2 keys at a time because I know it's against the rules but i like to experiment with different combinations using 2 keys logged in at a time if you get what I'm saying and I shouldn't catch shit just for wanting to experiment with different combinations during different logins since I do follow the 2 key at a time rule but never have i saw anywhere that were not allowed to have more than 2 keys that we play at separate logins as long as we don't have more than 2 on at a time. And for the logging on and off why don't you give people the option whether they want it to show when they log on and offas i really would rather it not show when i log on and off and I don't really care to know when someone else logs on and off . It's really noones business when I log on and off and i would like the option to hide my log on and off and not see when other people log on and off as thats none of mine or other people's business either. That would fix the whole annyance of login/logoff and I'd really rather not people see my logins and logoffs and i really rather not see other people's logins and logoffs anyway and think there should be an option to hide logins and logoffs.

If you're referring to quadkeying, that's against the rules and has always been against the rules. I am not changing that. As long as you keep to two keys logged in at one time, I don't mind. As for the situation you're referring to, I believe I stuck up for you and said that I can understand someone using a name from Dragon Warrior/Quest in a Dragon Warrior fangame. My names would be unoriginal as well, seeing as they're both misspelled character names from other RPGs. Rodyle from Tales of Symphonia and Karst from Golden Sun are where I even got the idea for Rodile and Krast to use in online games. Remaking characters is not against the rules an no one would bat an eye at it. If you constantly log on and off, however, it becomes mildly annoying.

Worldsay and Say are a feature in the Byond client as Byond is based off MUDs, which are the primitive form the MMORPG. I will not accommodate removing such a feature from the game, although you are welcome to not speak. (There is a turn off Worldsay verb in your command bar.)
