Nightmare Fuel / Dragon Quest I

  • The deserted town of Hauksness uses the eerie dungeon theme and is filled with wrecked shops, grown-over pavement and poisonous marshes. The really bad news is that "deserted" doesn't mean the town is empty, no; it's filled the strongest enemies in the overworld.
  • Accepting the Dragonlord's offer to rule at his side. He tells you that your quest is over and then, with an Evil Laugh, invites you to take a long rest. Your surroundings then cut to black, the text turns blood-red and... that's it.
