No, it's not wrong to pick up dungeon relationships. It is, however, important for players to realize that like all relationships, dungeons need proper management and care if they're going to thrive and multiply. As always in life, the journey is worth more than the destination, and we sincerely hope that gives you critical thinking material for your next DnD campaign.
Wrong or right to pick up dungeon relationships? We don't know!
Of course, everyone has their own preferences. Some people don't mind dungeon relationships and others feel attachment. But if you are interested in a DnD relationship, there are things you can do to improve the odds of it working out. It's all about communication.
I think it's interesting to note, though, that this trend towards relationships in dungeon crawling games is a relatively new phenomenon, at least from my perspective as a thirty-seven year old gamer. I know a lot of gamers who are far younger than I who are just now forming communities around the games they love and discovering the camaraderie that comes from playing with individuals they may never meet in real life. In the end, while taking up romantic relationships in dungeons will likely lead to trouble, there is nothing wrong with meeting like-minded individuals, fostering those relationships and enjoying the benefits of fellowship. After all, if you're going to do it in person why not do it virtually?
I have spent many hours in random parties and have never regretted picking up a relationship with a monster girl. However, that doesn't mean that it is not pointless in some cases.
Ultimately, it's up to you to decide what is best for your dungeon. You can continue to beef up your stats and focus on training, or you can go out into the field and meet other dungeons through battle and the Love Panel. Whatever you choose to do, take your time and enjoy the game's intriguing story.
Dungeons don't just serve as an avenue for gameplay and story, but also as a metaphor, allowing the player to reflect upon various themes within the game and their implications in real life. I can think of no better way to get to know someone than by going on a dungeon with them.
If this is your first time through the game, I suggest waiting until you've done everything else we discussed and have a good idea of what you're doing. There's a lot to do and explore as well, so it's hard to balance things if you don't have a grasp on the general idea going into this. Each route has its own pros and cons, and some are much more difficult than others. Even if that means you miss out on some great characters (well, not really), keep in mind that your first run is meant to be learning experience. Getting a handle on each route makes it easier to pick one later down the line when it matters.
On balance, I believe that some FF relationships can be romantic even when one is not romantically inclined. There may be kinky dynamics at play or as with the case of Chrom x Lissa there may just be an attraction to the bad boys.
The Conclusion is uncharacteristically factual for this website, but it's a good resource for the tabletop RPG community. It's great to see something written from a designer's perspective.
The DMW is still a game that relies on player interaction and cooperation. But with these concerns in mind, we were able to set these small issues aside and enjoy the game for what it is: an interesting concept, filled with creativity, wit, and passion.
If there's one thing you should learn from this game, it's that honesty is the best policy. It may not work out every time, but at least you'll have a better chance of success if you're straightforward about what's going on. Of course, even then, things might not turn out quite like you planned…
