Im making this a tad more general. Its much more fun to pick on adventure games at large than just a single series... (sand wyrms from SQ1)  8)

I don't debate, I ramble with STYLE!

Hey! This isn't a "Things I Learned by Playing Adventure Games" thread... that's too easy. ;)

(edits Fatali's post to say "or you get stung by nasty sand scorpions" ;) )

Peace & Luv, Liz

It may be easy, but its FUN!

And whats with the sand scorpions? KQ7 had a giant scorpion that was found in the desert land, might you be referring to that?  ???


(Oh! And the 'nasty' part goes without saying.  ::) )

Fatali: Try walking too many screens straight down/south right after you enter the desert in KQ5.

No, it's more like you get stung and die.

*Trading can be most helpful

*Remember to return to old places because they can change after you have done something else
