Tantegel is a town that appears in Dragon Quest, and is the capital of Alefgard. In the Nintendo Entertainment System version, the town is named Brecconary.
Tantegel is associated with Tantegel Castle, and is one of the first location that the Hero can access. It is a basic town and does not serve much purpose, although there is an inn, an item shop, an Armoury, and a Repellent Shop, which can only be accessed with a Magic Key and only sells a repellent for 12 gold coins. There are five buildings, and three of them have stairs that lead to a small upstairs room. These rooms are not of gameplay importance, and only have one or two characters who provide advice to Hero.
In Dragon Quest II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line, Tantegel was integrated into Tantegel Castle.
