SWORD OF KINGS! / Fee non-payment at Houses of Healing
If you decide not to pay the fee for various services at the Houses of Healing in DRAGON WARRIOR III, the guy who detoxicates / uncurses / revives your party members will lecture the survivors! "The donation is a token of gratitude and respect! Ingrates! You should be ashamed not to give anything!"
There is a SWORD OF KINGS in the DW3 town of Kol - it's not just EARTHBOUND! (you first have to get Oricon from the Hauksness stables, then sell it to the swordsmith from Jipang)
