From Dragon Quest Wiki

Fortuna is a bustling town in Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride, and is the first major town visited during the second era of the game.

It features a casino, as well as one of several monster den's run by Monty. It also is where the wagon is purchased, allowing monster companions to be recruited.


Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride[edit]

Fortuna is north of the Heaven's Above Abbey, and is the first town that most players will explore after beginning the game's second generation. Fortuna does exist in the first generation, but the bridge leading to it is still under construction: an old man in town mentions that after the bridge was built, the town practically blew up overnight. The sisters of the abbey travel to Fortuna to buy supplies (with some staying behind to gamble), but they consider the place to have an obscene air.

After the Hero and Harry say their goodbyes to Maria, who decided to become a nun in the abbey, the duo enter Fortuna and begin to readjust to life as free men after their decade of slavery. Though Harry admits that they stick out like sore thumbs, the volume of excitement that the town brings keeps them in high spirits. As befitting a hustling and bustling hub of activity, Fortuna has several shops, a bank, the aforementioned casino, a fortune-teller, and a curio shop run by a Dwarf. The little man sells odds and ends unable to be found anywhere else, and most important of all is the wagon.

Fortuna does not change significantly between generations, though the dialogue of the citizens will. In the beginning of the second generation, rumors of Coburg's decline into despotic degeneracy abound, and after the conflict with the Faux dowager is settled whispers of the disappearances of children and the Order of Zugzwang begin. One of the men responsible for kidnapping Harry is locked away in the town dungeon.

Curiosity shop[edit]

In the northwest corner of Fortuna is the Curiosity Shop. Only open at night, a man there will offer special deals for the Hero at a discount. When first arriving at Fortuna, he will offer a wagon for a marked down price of 300 gold coins. This is required in order to recruit monsters, and allows a rotation of extra party members. Not only will this allow the Hero to tame monsters after getting some tips from Monty the monster monitor, it is also necessary to have in order for the game's programming flag to activate and allow the party to leave the continent through the Littlehaven ship.

After resolving the situation in Coburg, if you return to Fortuna, the man will have a new offer: 'The Big Book of Beasts' for 1000 gold coins. This allows you to review all monsters encountered throughout the world.

The third offer from the Curiosity Shop is the Slime curio, for 5000 gold coins. This knick-knack can also be worn as armor by any slime companions, which restores HP each round. This offer is only available when he's not selling the wagon or book.


The only knick-knack available in Fortuna is the Slime curio mentioned above.
