Northwest Isle

From Dragon Quest Wiki
(Redirected from Dark Ruins)

The Northwest Isle[1] is an island in Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King.

It is the location for the Dark Ruins. As the name hints, it is northwest of the Baccarat Region. The party is able to visit the island as soon as they acquire the ship, but the ruins are inaccessible until the party has the Sun mirror after the events at Argonia.

Story[edit]

When the party first arrives at the island, they come across an adventuring party hired by Cash and Carrie from Baccarat who have hired them to avenge their father Golding's death at the hands of the evil jester Dhoulmagus. However, Dhoulmagus has sealed away the entrance to the ruins with a barrier of darkness, leaving both groups out of luck.
