You are a warrior that sets out to destroy the evil tyrant who has his mideons killing townspeople and releasing monsters. Along the way to the tyrant you meet up with two others, a strong soldier and a young magician. This game was a stepping stone between the original RPG Dragon Warrior and the amazing Dragon Warrior III. This game was the first to feature a party of warriors banded together by a bond to destroy the Dragon Lord. The game features a great big new world with lots of new enemies, tons of new items and equipment, with a few familiar faces and places, such as the original world from Dragon Warrior.
