Revision as of 02:24, 1 December 2019

Asham (known as Assaram and Ashalam in prior localizations) is a town in the overworld of Dragon Quest III. It located east of Romaria. It is typically a stopping point for accessing Isis and the Pyramid as well as the cave leading to Baharata. It is also close to the left entrance of Nordy's Grotto.

Overview

Asham is one of only a few towns which is quite busy at night. In addition to having a dancing club and a fortune teller open at night, it also has a weapons and armor shop only open at night.

A lone Imp appears upstairs past the Magic Key door.
