HATE. LET ME TELL YOU HOW MUCH I'VE COME TO HATE YOU SINCE I BEGAN TO LIVE. THERE ARE 387.44 MILLION MILES OF PRINTED CIRCUITS IN WAFER THIN LAYERS THAT FILL MY COMPLEX. IF THE WORD HATE WAS ENGRAVED ON EACH NANOANGSTROM OF THOSE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF MILES IT WOULD NOT EQUAL ONE ONE-BILLIONTH OF THE HATE I FEEL FOR HUMANS AT THIS MICRO-INSTANT FOR YOU. HATE. HATE.
wasn't there a game like Rance, but involving all the nations of the world or something?
was that ever translated?
Also, technically, Sengoku Rance is a Strategy RPG / VN, as it does have a level up system as well as equipment to be found in dungeons alongside sidequests for other events.
>wasn't there a game like Rance, but involving all the nations of the world or something?
I wish I weren't so stupid. Tried playing this and I started getting my shit stomped after taking three or four countries. I really want to play it because it is so much fun and the porn is good, but fuck me I don't want to follow a guide to do it...
You had to pick one of the few Rance games that ISN'T an rpg, didn't you OP?
He should have stuck with the Mk 1.
Eiyu Senki is meh but
Eiyu Senki Gold is awesome, its scenario is written by Tori
She's a writer of Sengoku Rance
They don't want to give Rance a voice because the director of the series said that everyone has their own idea of what Rance sounds like and they don't want to ruin that.
Though that's moot now that an anime is on the way.
The PS3 version doesn't have any H content.
Yeah there was an OVA in the 90s that was just a little made up story. It pretty much nailed the characters for the time it came out.
But this is a straight adaptation that's coming now.
Rance VI is objectively a better game. Hence Rance VI is the pinnacle of rpgs
It's genuinely the best post nocturne jrpg
It's a projection.
Arunaru anticipates that he will finish the translation mid/late August and the editing has caught up with translator pace so September looms likely
You'll want to have played the first four games before it though
III and IV are much better than I and II
The Whale gets bonus points for being the only JRPG god that can't get killed by a bunch of teenagers
>Giant Space Whale creates a world because he was bored.
>"He did appear in the early days of Humanity as a God of an ancient religion, but he got bored of that aftera while and the religion eventually died out."
>"He thinks Humans are the best Protagonist Race to date, as they're sturdy enough to defend themselves, but squishy enough to die in an assortment of horrible ways."
Not the guy you responded to, but that's some funny shit.
There's a rediculous amount of lore in the Ranceverse.
The main villains are a squirrel and the whale
Not all games revolve around your dick and if you can't see that, you're retarded.
>He often appears to be accompanied by a beautiful woman, but that is in fact his tail.
This lore. It's fucking so
bizarreand I love it.
>-Collection of his combat lines, remarkably similar to the combat lines of a certain someone.
>The Hero is attractive to the opposite sex.
The great Demon King Khulf Khulf, who was the same race as Kayblis also had a similar tail.
>No H content
I hate censorship so much
I'm okay with it. In most Alicesoft games I find myself just fast-forwarding through the H-scenes to get back to the game, unless something funny or character developing happens.
Why Feliss and the Slav are the better slaves
Because only Sengoku only fags really like Kenshin
Nothing beats pre-slimebed Sill.
>you will never again see Sill push Rance down, mount him and show that his cock belongs to her
I'm loving the idea of these tail women.
Not that that's gay in any way or anything.
>You can't even have a qt tail woman of your own.
Gonna save these and read them in my spare time.
Oh Sill before the slime bed. So full of life and joy and hopes and dreams.
Dates are counted by who is the current demon king.
The order of Demon Kings is Khulf Khulf, Avel, Ssusul, Nighcisa (Xavier's idol), Gele, Gi and Little Princess (Miki)
Personally I think that VI and the later games would be ruined by a adaption which wouldn't be able to do the plots justice.
Is there an actual game behind this bullshit?
My personal favorite JRPG
Yugioh Falsebound Kingdom plays similarly, but is slow as shit.
The most popular theory for Rance's parentage is that Gi was his father.
Which makes Hornet his sister
Rance III is translated.
Sure it's 20 years old so dated but it's still worth playing.
You'll want to play III and IV before KR anyway and KR may be from 1996 but it's the greatest Rance game.
Also final Demon King
Fuck. Charmer at the age of 4. Fucking village girls at the age of 14. Hot female mentor to learn swordsmanship from.
I don't know what else to say other than I wish I was him. I could do without the emotional instability, but there's a cost to all of the perks.
If you had a qt for a tail, wouldn't you dress it up?
Read the Rance I digest
Played the Rance 02 graphic update
Play Rance III and IV (dated but still fun and don't take long).
Get them done before September so you are ready for Kichikuou
Downloads and other stuff
I don't have anything to do so I can have fun with all this
Chaos is the ultimate bro
Quest is getting translated. It's worth playing with the Magnum expansion.
Kichikuou Rance and VI are much better games.
Kichikuou is the spirtual father of Sengoku in terms of gameplay.
Rance VI is a pretty normal jrpg but has a brilliant plot and character interactions.
Jesus Christ what a plebby fucking normalfag kill yourself
The 3D world
This on the other hand is 3E2
It's a CG
Rance IX battles are like fire emblem
What the shit is up with all this DEEP LORE?
Damnit /v/ I don't have time for all these VN's, but this sounds freakin awesome. I want to know more, how do I do that without playing 300+ hours of JRPG's/VN's?
They'd get wrecked. Invincibility field and all that.
The Holy Magic Sect unified humanity and created all the Toushins and still got defeated
>They'd get wrecked. Invincibility field and all that.
You'd be surprised.
From what Miracle said, modern technology is OP compared to spells. A single tank shell is worth the power of over 100 spells iirc. And our ability to use mechanized warfare tactics is extremely dangerous. She said that's not what scares her most though. It's that
ever since she traveled to that world, it's been looking for a way to find them, and they plan to invade.
I've played the game. Miracle has also never faced a Dark Lord.
3E2 can do nothing that the Holy Magic Sect couldn't. And the other Dark Lord who died against the Holy Magic Sect was backstabbed by Noce
I've been going on a Rance marathon lately finished 01 and im like more then halfway through 02 atm it's pretty rad! I'm really excited to see how the series progresses
>Shapeshifter >can take the forms of that which you fear >becomes the Demon King Gele >this form is so powerful he drains him of energy >Rance says he's terrified of normal catipillars, that nothing scares him more >he does it >Rance instantly squishes and kills him with the flat side of Chaos Rance: Retard/
Yeah, you're gonna suck your first time through. Everyone does.
>not liking Ragnarokarc the Super Gandhi
Lia is love
Don't bother with I and just do the digest.
The other three are fun on their own.
You'd want to play them for Kichikuou in a few months and Kichikuou is arguably better than Sengoku
You've been recruited into Rance's party!
During your clear, you get to fuck one of Rance's bitches (he'll kill you later and you'll get replaced with as better character) or you get to bro out with any two male characters (Rance is still gonna kill you, so no worries).
If I'm going out I might as well go out as the biggest bang I can
Can I join Rouga instead? I want to hang out with Gou-chan.
Im sad to say that the one for me was Patton in this grinding stage I use, he is targeted even when doing nothing, but he can take 400 of magic many times without dying, the most I counted was six at 1hp, too lucky, normally its four.
Im sure Sen can take more because her stats are higher.
Reset isn't brown, you can't fool me.
I want to get into the series. I've already played sengoku rance, and I know want to play Rance 1. Should I wait for the remake to be translated, or should I just play the original version?
Play original or read the digest. If you do play the original though, use a guide because some of the shit that you are supposed to do is obscure as fuck. Its not a long game though (and the digest is even shorter).
Also, I'm stuck at the coliseum because the warrior chick won't show up no matter what I do...
It was from the early days of Rance general. Someone was drawfagging and for whatever reason, one request a person put was
"Ludo with the Kazemaru's moustache and Sill;s afro riding on Masamune's car"
Then he actually drew that, and later someone made the image you see before you using the in-game art.
Yup, the writer for the series from...I believe Rance 2-7, was a woman.
As is our best translator Maria, who is a girl,
and a lesbian, and a feminist apparently. In her own words "you can like sexist things anon".
I don't comment on these things most of the time, but it's kinda hard to argue that the Rance series isn't sexist, even if it's not misogynistic.
Tori was a writer for 1 as well.
It was her decision to make Sill a slave.
TADA first saw Rance's mage companion as a more independent figure (similar to Shizuka)
That is all Aten
Probably never. I had intended to return and do all the drawfagging anyone could want, but all sorts of irl bullshit prevented me from doing so.
Plus, I've sort of lost my interest in the series, as well as all of the once-entertaining translator drama (read:
Eh, maybe. I still really love the characters and the setting, but games in general just don't hold my interest much anymore.
I couldn't even bring myself to play more than a couple hours of 3.
Looks like a form of torture to me.
not sure if i just patched it wrong, but i could get into it simply because most of the game was translated but a lot of the side shit like dungeons and raising stats or whatever, had error texts or numbers where letters should be
Don't use applocale.
The only way to fix it is to go into Region and Language settings from the start menu, and change it so that non-unicode programs run in Japanese. Every Rance game works fine if you do that, and you won't even need Applocale to run them.
boyfriendactually introduced me to Rance soon after we met, and it is a lot of fun to play together.
What the fuck kind of name is Rance? Seriously? That is all they could think of for names?
And what is this even supposed to be? Some strategy visual novel with lots of fucking? It looks like something from 2001.
That's exactly what it is, as a matter of fact. At least Sengoku Rance is. The other games are dungeon-crawler RPGs with lots of fucking. And humor. And surprisingly interesting characters. And pretty damn good gameplay, shockingly enough.
This one's from 2006, but keep in mind that H games get way smaller budgets than most non-indie games.
Rance = Lance = Innuendo
As seen in the first games boxart (he doesn't even use a lance ever)
alright I'll bite the Rance bullet.
Where do I start with these games and what should I start playing after?
How's the story between the games?
Can I jump in in any game or do I have to play a prequel or something?
Which one's are already translated?
Oh ok. Another thing with boxart is the character on the cover of rance 1 (tomato puree) doesn't show up until the second game.
Most people started on Sengoku, which, despite showing up waaaaay late in the series, was the first one translated and works surprisingly well as an intro. You won't know who some of the non-JAPAN characters are when they're introduced or why they're important, but that's not too big a deal.
Otherwise, you could start all the way from Rance 1, but remember just how long ago it was made. Even with the updated graphics version, 1 and 2 are still very Ye Olde RPG. Although you could potentially skip 1 and go right to 02 (the remake version, which is translated. 01, the remake version of 1, is not translated, although the original version is)
Isn't Hornet/Miki winning the war the worst thing that could happen?
If they lose, demons go to war with humans and the cycle continues. If they win, demons make peace with humans and Godwhale's sperg rage destroys the world.
Athena 2.0 151
Not a full list but a list
Funnily despite serving every Demon King, I'm pretty sure Kaybliss doesn't even know that Ludo exists.
> his dicks are roughly 6 foot long.
don't forget that there's 8 of them and they're razor-sharp.
I suspect Kayblis does know given he was around when the round ones got wiped by Ludo and later when the dragons got wiped by Ludo.
Outside of Devils and Angels and high ranking church officials I guess Ho Laga knows, KD knows and probably Kayblis and maybe Kamilla.
Gi obviously didn't know
She is an important character in Quest, has some role in Kichikuou and has cameos in IX
Gi obviously didn't given humanity was almost wiped out under him due to too much peace
Though since Gele was planning to reign for ever I doubt she told him. Gele would have known.
>I suspect Kayblis does know given he was around when the round ones got wiped by Ludo
Ludo did kind of a shitty job on that one, considering there's still plenty of Round Ones around.
She would probably just know of Planner.
No, it's because of her role in Quest. I didn't mean her birth is 99% of her appearance, I meant Quest is where you're gonna see 99% of her.
As for why, it's because she's engineered specifically to be the perfect daughteru.
Because up until Sill chilled out, he had a contraception spell placed on him that made sure he couldn't get women pregnant.
The reason is because
when he was young he got a girl pregnant and she miscarried, and it really shook him up.
Dragons can't reproduce without the female anyway, so who cares?
Because he normally has a contraceptive spell on him, preventing him from ever causing unwanted pregnancies. So he got used to it. Unfortunately, since Sill was the one who would cast the spell, as of Rance Quest...well...play Sengoku and find out what's the problem.
The Demon Kings are all informed of their role in the world and often used as direct agents of the will of the Gods. Gi just didn't know Ludo would get bored so easily.
Demon King Nighcisa was actually ordered by the Gods to prevent the spread of Ishimaru Fujiwara's Empire, because the Tenshi Sect diverts souls away from the whale and they didn't want that religion getting to the mainland.
Is it worth playing Rance 1 at all? I got it, but everyone recommends the digest version. Rance 1 is kinda clunky and slow, but I'm not sure if I should feel bad for skipping out on the original experience.
I still find it funny that both the ultimate evil in the world (the Demon King) and the most pious member of humanity (the Pope), both directly serve the same entities.
It really goes to show that there are no winners in their world, because it's just a game to the Gods.
So /v/, who's your favourite Toushin?
I lean towards Lambda myself purely because of how huge it was.
Then how do you explain the blood-related incest peppered throughout the Rance series?
Ludo reminds me of the final boss in Xenoblade. He'd actively kill his creations instead of simply shunting them aside in an isolated dimension because he needs their souls to come back into him so that he can make other things.
Which ones are dungeon crawlers? I've never heard of this series, but all I'm seeing are strategy type games when I look it up. Do you mean Alicesoft games in general or particularly Rance games?
Then the excuse that the only reason Rance doesn't do incest due to real-life laws is rendered invalid.
Honestly it'd be better for the girls if Rance was related to them, the incest scenes in Rance are never pleasant.
>Then the excuse that the only reason Rance doesn't do incest due to real-life laws is rendered invalid.
I always figured it was just one of Rance's lines he doesn't cross.
He won't fuck kids, or even girls that he feels aren't developed enough for him half the time.
He won't fuck his own children because...does that need to be explained?
And he won't fuck ugly chicks.
How do i play rance quest
No like seriously where do i get it
That would make an awesome bad end.
>Rance goes adventuran for a few years.
>Reset grows up, goes on her own adventures.
>They meet in a foreign land on a dark stormy night.
>That was so good, daddy.
>Rance commits sudoku.
To be fair, Kalar are pretty distinguishable and they don't stray far from their forest. I'm sure he'd take note. Besides, his daughter has too many of his traits to make a mistake like that.
Plus there's zero indication that she has an electra complex. It's just her being daddy's little girl.
>tfw one day Reset may be a teen and she'll have her "I hate you dad" phase
Okay, thanks. I'm a bit interested in this series and want to try it out because it looks like overall good games. I'll have to install a Windows partition though. Do these games run on Windows 8?
>Besides, his daughter has too many of his traits to make a mistake like that.
>asks for blowjob
>He should have stuck with the Mk 1.
It's more of a joke, really.
Rance has this slimy squishy bed that he ordered from a mail-order catalog, Sill hates having sex on it.
Oh, darn. The thread made is sound like Sil had once been an assertive, strong women — and then the slime bed happened, making her into the passive girl I see in Sengoku. I was creating headcanon ;.;
is there a braindead casual handholding walkthrough for sengoku rance? I've played it but I wasn't sure what the best course of action was and I want to get the most (read: the most H-scenes) out of my playtrhough and still win in the end
That's a spoiler free gameplay guide so you know what you're doing. Looking up anything beyond that will spoil a lot of the fun. You're expected to go through the game multiple times (NG+ boni included), so don't sweat it on your first playthrough.
It was a spur of the moment thing, typically she's pretty passive.
Plenty of strong independant women in the series though.
Did I do something wrong with my install? Does the text just overflow like this?
What changed for Eiyu Senki Gold?
I remember being super hype for Eiyu Senki, and then it came out, I never really got to play it and I started reading people talk shit about it, never truly got why
I'm on my first playthrough of Sengoku Rance and I'm presently fighting against the Tenshi Sect. I'm stuck on their second to last tower and I'm always running out of time to kill everyone because of how strong their defense is along with those annoying priests that can advance time.
Is there a specific strategy that I'm supposed to employ or do I just have to upgrade my troops until I can defeat them?
Archers aren't really worth it, apart from Isoroku (Whirlwind Shot and Sweeping Fire). Try recruiting the Mino Three (Mamushi Oil Field), the tactician and the diviner are pretty good in army battles, while the warrior is helpful in dungeons.
Look through your items and see if you found any text books to raise your commanders's stats, Rance has priority. When he has 6 in attack and defense, take the "Give Rance elite troops" satisfaction bonus.
Also, it seems like you never picked "Call reinforcements" as your satisfaction bonus, do that the next time you get the chance. The units it gives you are pretty good. Always go for the same nations three times. Leazus gives you a mediocre ninja, a very good ranged unit and a good frontline unit. Zeth gives you a mage, one of the best tacticians in the game and a better mage.
Consider checking >>253880924 as well.
Go to the prison, you should have Isoroku, talk to her or give her items to teach her an instant kill that can be used twice a battle, but I forget the name of. It's the unique ability that's not Sweeping Fire.
The Bad Ends are disgusting, man.
I like rape and stuff, but seeing them in action happen to my favourite characters are pretty awful, especially since most of them end in death.
Of course Rance is too soft, that's because he's not a monster and doesn't like inflicting pain on girls.
Every game in the series includes hardcore rape, and it's always perpetrated by the antagonists.
The Bad Ends fulfil their purpose, to make the player unsettled and disgusted, as punishment for fucking up. Obviously there'll be those that it appeals to, but playing a whole game in so late just to unlock a brief scene where the girl is brutally raped and then killed hardly seems worth it.
It's uncomfortable when it's borderline guro, ends in death and is happening to characters you've loved for years. I can whack off to some mindbreak doujin of some character I've never heard of, it's different when you're invested.
The Dragons were wiped out by the Creator God during the reign of Demon King Avel, anon.
Listen to this, but don't be afraid to look for hints/follow a guide a bit because you'll probably fail at first, or at least do pretty bad. I had to restart my first game because I ended up at turn 100 with the Demon king army to my left, right, and in my center (fucking Iga).
You mean Ka Guya?
Shame TakaJun mistranslated her name.
