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[edit]

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.
