I wouldn't mind seeing sort of global events, like in Talisman, which would affect all the players, so you might not even be safe when it's not your turn. Earthquake for example, forcing all characters to test X (Agility or Armor, whichever lower perhaps), taking damage for each point they fail by.
Yes, that would certainly make the gameplay more exciting. I would even suggest more dramatic events as **teleport the heroes with eachother clockwise** for example. More randomness = more fun when it comes to DQ :)
While neither Hero reached the Treasure Chamber today (as opposed to three characters in the previous two games getting out with3,500+ Gold each), but as usual, I always shuffle all the decks, even those that might never be needed. While shuffling the Dragon deck, what came to mind was that if they add more Dragon cards, I would like to see something like this spread (if they add another 8 cards):
2x Dragon Rage
2x Dragon Dreams: find nothing (something like Kalladra is making worrying noises in his sleep so the Hero just stops looting in hopes of not waking him).
1x Deep Slumber: draw 3 Treasure
3x Troubled Sleep: draw 1 Treasure (Kalladra shifts in his sleep, not as bad as Dragon Dreams, but still concern enough that the Hero only gets one treasure)
Would not only add to the chances of getting breathed on, but also add turns where you might not get anything.
A dirty mind is its own reward.
