Welcome to Dragon's Dogma, the game where you can romance any NPC, but you probably won't know that until it's TOO LATE.

Hey, at least he didn't get Symone.

Same shit happens with Aldous

If Fournival is your beloved you can find him at your house 24/7, is not it's hard to buy stiff from him because if you go near his house in the main city all the guards attack you. I got him on on my last few playthroughs so its easy to get makers fingers easier and kill the online Ur-dragon quicker.

I don't know which is worse Fournival or the court jester? :D

Y'see, this is why I draw my daggers in shops and be a complete asshole to everybody except Selene and Barnaby.

Literally just had this happen ;_; he's already been taken so I can't change it.

I had a very weird time with this. Here's how it went:
- I got Mercedes to max affinity
- I went to the Tainted Mountain
- ALDOUS turned up
- I killed the dragon
- I watched my character make out with Aldous
- Got home and both Selene AND Aldous were there
- Fought the Seneschal
- Washed up the beach
- Fucking FOURNIVAL turned up and grinned at me like that one creepy uncle

The "romance" system in this game is 110% broken and I LOVE IT.

i remember how i got the... the warrior lady forgot her name for a soul mate but after fighting god and killing myself at the end the blacksmith just up came to my pawn as if HE was my soul mate. so im not sure what happened. 

Though to me it kinda look like a father finds his son moment.

I was mildly surprised when I spoke to Valmiro and there was this chiming sound and the glow and those tiny blushes on his face. I was like what...? Dude, seriously...? And then I had to talk to Quina duo to a quest and the same thing happened.
So I got curious as to what that meant and checked out the DD Wiki. Needless to say I quickly learned about the Afinity and Romance issue. I literally stopped talking to Valmiro, giving him the cold shoulder and started showering Quina with gifts XD; I'm just miffed I missed the opportunity to give her the Arisen's Bond :T Ah well... As long as it's not Fournival... *looks at comic and shudders*. Madeleine... or Miss "I got the hots for you because you had a stupid looking hat". God, I hate her.

you do if you give an npc arisen's bond

i sure the hell didn't sacrifice jack shit for that two timing queen lady.

I fell sad for the 1st soldier in the DD game who was eated by that weird Manticore.

Damm.... I was so worried to find him and just heal him with at least 1 of my potions... ohh damm.

this is my greatest fear...
krimsonfury Featured By Owner Edited Jan 20, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
Ironically after I made my comment about a year ago, my male Arisen ended up with Valmiro. I wish I could had just fed him to the dragon... I TRIED TO GET MERCEDES, THE STUPID ARISEN'S BOND CUTSCENE EVEN PLAYED DESPITE THE FACT THAT I GAVE IT TO HER!!! NO FAIR!!!

On a side note, I did give him to the dragon. But I was still stuck with him... I should had bought the art of metamorphosis so I didn't have to see him and my Arisen gay kiss...

I have nothing against homosexuality, I just wanted to get the girl.

Before you face the Dragon the person you choose must be the last person you talk to.  They must have a pink aura anyone you don't want simply sheath and unsheathe your weapons until pink aura goes away.   
krimsonfury Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
That's common knowledge. To be honest, I actually killed Valimiro a few times before completing the game. I ended up with the Selene ending. I just think it was funny that every time I fed Valimiro to the Brine, his corpse would end up in front of the fireplace at my house sprawled out.

Man I hated that! When I first played the game I got Madeline, then my friend delete my saves so the next time I got the shop keeper in Gran Soren
TheGrandOleRuski Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2015
Feed him to Grigori...FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DON'T RESCUE HIM!!!!!!!! 
TheCelesticWarrior Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2015
Still got Selene at least. XD
Twilitblade Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2014
... Well, THAT's good to know. I'll just start being more careful with which NPCs I interact with from now on.
NallCalmer Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2014
Yeah... I had the Walrus Man on my first try in the game, too. I wish i knew about that affinity crap before hand. lol 
slayer218 Featured By Owner Edited Nov 6, 2014
My thoughts when I got Valmiro on my first try.
Arisen: "God Dammit Valmiro why are you adventuring again when I thought I told you to stay in the f*%king village" 
Of course I didn't hear the Dragon say that he was my love and boy was I was surprised when they started to make out 
DoaWin Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2014  Student General Artist
My brother got Alalam as his ture love. He wanted to sacrifice him, but he did not want to risk loosing the store discount and his most visited merchant. So he saved him. Then they run of in to frolic in the fields. Oh jolly what good time of unwanted romance. All he wanted was a professional relation ship and he got so much more. :heart:
PrincessEnnui Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ha! I finally got someone I wanted to get taken by the Dragon, as messed up as it sounds. I got... Ser... Maximilian!

Every time I got the Aelinore, I would thousand kiss her to death (oh, the irony). I also like throwing her at every opportunity during Duchess in Distress. This includes obstacles she won't normally go across! >=)
SenkawolfMC Featured By Owner Edited Sep 18, 2014
You know when I played the game and I saw this part (yes it happened to me) I killed the dragon then when back home I picked him up and threw him in the ocean, no more fornival, problem solved 
GeryfromVAC Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2014
:lmao: Did the exact same...just with Valmiro. Though...I did try to sacrifice him at first :rofl:
SenkawolfMC Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2014
Ooooh that's clever 
GeryfromVAC Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2014
Well at first thats what I thought as well. But he kept re-appearing from time to time.

Had to throw him in the sea again...and again...and again...every time I met him. It became ritual, every time I returned to Cassardis.

Not that I'm cpmplayining though xD

It's fun to do some evil things from time to time
SenkawolfMC Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2014
Ahh the satisfaction of killing people, never gets old 
Gekigengar Featured By Owner Edited Sep 12, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
AHAHA, This is so true..! x)

Its worse when you get the inn-keeper as your soul-mate, he stays at your fishing village all the time.
(Nobody to talk to to rest in the inn at Gran Soren).
Demons-Cat Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2014
I always seem to get the duchess or Madeline even though i try to get Reynard. On my last playthrough, i tried to set it up so that i would get him by doing his quest and giving him lots of stuff, but when i went off to fight the dragon, i found Fournival waiting for me >.<
VespyFox Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha, I was so worried that I would accidentally be forced to take the Duchess as my soul mate. Luckily, I captured Ser Maximillian's heart before I left to fight the dragon. Wink/Razz Nice comic, it certainly made me giggle. If I had gotten Fournival, I would have sacrificed him without a second thought. 
LittleClumsyMonster Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I stay with Quina, Selene and Alinore... It was so traumatizing when I got Selene and then her father Shocked

AG-107 Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2014
my beloved was the dragonsbane...just to c him doing the weird moves in the dragon scene
Goldeneyes2 Featured By Owner Edited Jul 6, 2014
The struggle.  ha ha  I got Selene and then Madeleine!  This was after showering the GUY I wanted with gifts and conversation the entire game.  ERGH.
QuadForceFive Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'd love it if the game actually knows very clearly who you want to romance, but it just intentionally sabotages you.
Goldeneyes2 Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2014
Yeah!  ha ha  That wouldn't surprise me at all, seeing as how far off it always is for everyone!
SmilingCrows Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2014
The dragon, he will only pick his OTP
Pereyga Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, I wanted someone else as my romance than I got.
But Symone is just a kid, can you really get her as a romance? xD
xtoturnwithinx Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2014
Spent the entire game romancing Mercades.
Go to fight the Grigori and he's kidnapped Caxton.
Finish the game, and Selene greets me on the beach.
ShadowMan-DDT Featured By Owner May 29, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
I didn't have this problem. My beloved was Selene. An under-aged girl. And I was playing a female Arisen. I was somewhat conflicted by this.
Goldeneyes2 Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2014
Exactly what happened to me.  ha ha
KingletQueen Featured By Owner Edited Jul 8, 2014
And me... twice! I also found Selene really annoying so I said the Dragon could eat her but apparently the game does not approve of that!
Goldeneyes2 Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2014
I never knew until I read all these comments that the game wouldn't actually let you do that.  I never took that option, even if it was someone I didn't want. 
KingletQueen Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2014
I did the first time just to see what would happen because I really didn't like Selene and basically you get a game over screen after a cutscene so you HAVE to go back and fight...
