Endor (エンドール, romanized in official Japanese guidebooks as Endohr) is a kingdom and a castle town found in Dragon Quest IV. It is one of the few locations to use the same localization from the earlier NES game. The castle town is the only location in the original NES game with a casino.

Endor is featured in Chapter 2 with Alena, Chapter 3 with Torneko and Chapter 5 with the hero.

Kingdom of Endor[edit]

The Kingdom of Endor is composed of Endor, the Cave of the Silver Statuette, a shrine leading to Zamoksva and the entrance of the Tunnel to Casabranca.



Dragon Quest IV[edit]

Endor is one of the largest castle towns in the game, with multiple weapon, armour, and item shops. Introduced in Chapter 2, the king of Endor is holding a tournament to attract powerful warriors. The prize for winning the tournament is the hand of the princess in marriage. Alena enters the tournament not only to prove her strength but to save the princess from an undesirable marriage. Alena is able to win the tournament by defeating five opponents and by the forfeit of Psaro, the only other person to defeat five opponents.

In Chapter 3, Torneko is able to mend the bad feelings between the king of Ballymoral and the king of Endor. Because of his expert mediation, the king of Endor allows Taloon to set up a shop in Endor. Torneko moves into the shop with his wife and child. He later provides a set of Steel broadswords and Iron armours to the king in exchange for 60,000 gold coins. Prior to the casino's reopening, Ragnar McRyan is looking for a lead on The Hero in the area.

At the end of Chapter 4, sisters Maya & Meena arrived here from Havre Léon after being defeated by Marquis de Léon.

In Chapter 5, the hero meets the sisters in Endor, where they join the hero's party.
