It's filled with similarly stupid shit. There's even a gunshot on the glass.
She's really hot so everyone wants to assault her.
It doesn't work.
It's not confirmed if she has level 3 luck because RWN hasn't been updated but nothing happens to her if she doesn't want it to happen
Is it possible to win in daibanchou without visiting the SU? Considering doing it cause I'm so bored right now.
I'll pirate it.
Apparently someone made Sengoku Rance themed drinks.
Rance is an old classic in a new place, the tastes of the old Zeth colliding with those of JAPAN. He’s not a drink that needs to think twice, whether it’s conquering a nation or deciding what to do with the maids.
Senhime's is cute because of the gummy worm.
Senhime is harsh but civilised, her peppery flavour looking to tear across your tongue and occupy your throat before the other flavours even land. This is for those who love the rush of a good struggle. (If you can, use good 100% agave tequila rather than lemon-and-salt paint stripper. I used a Killer Python for the garnish, but if you can find long white or clear snakes that would be the best!)
Nope. Spite towards Maria aside, I just don't think nukige is worth paying for.
I will be buying Gahkthun from those cunts though. And KnS3 however many years from now that is.
A bit late, but thank you! I think I'll like this series.
Tried Sengoku years ago but never really got into it, so I'll start elsewhere.
Yes, inside the game code it's even tagged as Arios.
Rance just needed to try and be tactful in 03
/tg/ asked a good question... pick your favourite character from an Alicesoft game.
>After many years the character and the group he/she was in have found some Big Bad Evil Guy and killed him.
>The battle was long, half of your character's companions died and the character is heavily wounded but in the end it won.
>Suddenly you see a crying little girl, too young for Rance... maybe Kou's age in SR, tops.
>"Why did you kill my daddy?''
What would the character do?
Come to think of it, I think the variety of answers I'll get to this will show off just how well Alicesoft write their characters.
03 suggests she did because she did compare Rance to him during sex and she thought quite highly of Rance.
Picking one character is really hard
Some won't give a shit (Kamilla. She'd probably have the kid killed if it makes too much of a fuss)
If necessary someone like Maris might have her killed.
Some might feel guilt and would take the kid in and raise it.
Rance wouldn't feel guilt but he'd take in the kid and get someone to raise it incase it turned out hot.
I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Rance just kills her, mostly because of the "half your character's companions died" part. Depending on the party, chances are it will probably have a large amount of cute girls. Some of which he's very protective of.
>Rape a woman to death
>Kills a cute girl to become Demon King
Killing lolis wouldn't be that out of place if he loses say Kanami, Shizuka, Sill, Sheila and Maria at all once.
Unknown, The whole Dragon business in Evenicle doesn't make much sense due to the lack of male dragons. We're missing a large chunk of the dragon backstory in Evenicle, Regardless QD is probably the broodmother of the Evenicle Dragons
Nice to see Alicesoft still acknowledges that KR exists despite being non-canon
There was some thread on Reddit about how great Steiner was and how he was reasonable, talented, and was pleasant to everyone, so someone posted a summary of Ludo's mental breakdown and tantrum. The next day, literally everything he ever uploaded had been taken down.
Because translator drama. It's explained just above it in the OP
>On permanent hiatus unless localised by Mangagamer. Late 2016 at the earliest for the next Alicesoft game after Haruka.
5D has next to no chance of getting localised
Shit. Oh well, no sense being an entitled nancy here. They translated it then decided to privatise it.
Now we just have to wait for another group to take a hack at it.
That UI looks more like YsI/II rather than anything alicesoft did unless you meant that the MC looks like KR rance
When does Widenyo become fun? It just seems painful.
*casts sleep spell*
hmph... to weak...
>Are you using permits by any chance?
Not yet, they come at like turn 60 don't they? Pic related is my current map and army... the map hasn't gone as well as it could have, but it probably doesn't help that I've kept savescumming to an absolute minimum (I've usually only reloaded for genuine mistakes like silly misclicks).
Have you tried to beat them on 5 Star no bonus? They take far more investment that what they're worth.
By beating them you get:
1) 5 SAT from Akihime, or the ability to recruit her (I'm pretty sure she gives no SAT if recruited, even when cleared).
2) Hara Shouji (only useful for his Neg stat).
3) Whatever small bonuses you get from the extra battles.
But to get this you need:
1) To waste Action Fans, usually far more than the 4 you'd expect - their final castle battle is pretty tough.
2) Waste troops (and therefore both money, and the opportunity to use the commanders for other things) to defend from their attacks while you beat Ashikaga and build up a large enough army to actually beat their castle (there's no fucking way you'll beat Hara's castle before you've beat Ashikaga, unless you've wasted an absurd amount of turns preparing).
In short, it's not worth it. The only real benefit from conquering is the 5 SAT, which is even a debatable benefit in itself, because I can easily get 5 SAT with two fans (do a dungeon) and I doubt you can beat their castle with only one fan if you're not scumming.
kek, I've been looking at the run of the last anon here to do 5 Star no bonus, just to see where he struggled (in hopes of answering my earlier question).
Look how he conquered Hara! Look at the commanders he has in that pic, Hara is hard as fuck on 5 Star no bonus.
>Has anyone here done 5 Star No Bonus SR? I've started doing it myself and now that I've got Kenshin, Natori, Uruza and Dousan, it feels easy. When does it get hard again?
Page 10, anyone?
Some faggot said that it is much better than first game, so I'm looking forward to it. I played it too much to give up now.
Haven't played this game but I remember its CGs.
This is the cutest blonde haired girl in all of the Rance series.
She is so cute!
I wish I could be there to stop the rape just so that I could then have consensual reward sex with her afterwards.
Exactly, the person who is literally invulnerable isn't the one who's at a disadvantage in this scenario, besides, Rance needed to fight him with a full party to take him down after that happened. I find it entertaining that Chaos has been used to not kill two demons in basically the same way.
I wonder if the plot twist about fated girls will be that Rance starts beating the dark lords and killing them left and right, then the demon king turns Rance into a dark lord and all his fated girls as well.
There is no plot twist about pointed girls.
Originally it was just to point out the obvious, namely that Sill, Shizuka and Kanami were still the main girls but now it's just a thing so fans of particular girls don't get mad
Aroduc isn't so rude for no reason. Therefore I declare you are not Aroduc.
I don't think there are any slots left unless Miki turns some people after Sengoku.
I think there are already so many demons that they're going to have trouble doing them justice in X.
Given the scope of X, Red Eye is pretty much Late Mid Game and he's a monster compared to what Rance has fought
I want to know why in the Isoroku route the war with the demons happens when Rangi is already around 10 and why it's going to happen in canon when he's about 1 or 2.
Maybe without Sill getting frozen MALICE spent her time trying to get Rance and Lia together instead of advancing her plans?
They'd have to retcon the 24 limit or make Miki turn yet another person which is highly unlikely. We already know Rizna is going to turn into one which is a pretty cruel fate for her
Episode 4 should e the final part of the story.The only chance we are getting Millie's scene now is if after ep 4 they make an ep or two extras with some of the side story scenes.
From extra games info, the ones before the games are set to be the same Dark Lords we know. Any new one would be recently turned ones, either by Miki's blood or by absorbing one of the Demon Blood Souls.
At the start of the series we have
Start of Series
6. Red Eye
22.Lexington (Blood Soul)
24.Berksham (killed by Noce)
Berksham's blood soul I think was absorbed by Noce so there is one slot for a new demon.
At the start of X we have
4. Kamilla (sealed)
6. Red Eye
18.Kite (blood soul)
19.Ithere (not dead but biding his time)
20.Noce (completely dead)
21.Sieg (completely dead - slot taken by Abert)
22.Lexington (blood soul)
23.Xavier (completely dead)
24.Berksham (completely dead)
Between Berksham, Noce and Xavier there are three slots for Miki to make new demons but of course Kentarou took up one.
It also seems unlikely that Miki would do that before X.
I can't remember if Aurora has Abert's blood soul with her but I think she does.
I guess it's possible that Aurora made a new demon while trying to revive Sieg but that would have had to have happened after Quest.
Lexington is a possibility given that Atlanta now has much greater access to possible bodies. But I really don't seem the going down that route.
Any demon would have to be extremely new, possibly even turned during the game.
If someone becoming a demon is handled well it could become interesting.
I don't really see the point in an unaligned new demon in Rance X because it's a distraction from the main plot and if they want a rogue they could possibly just use Kamilla for that.
But on another note
Given the AL Church might be enemies in X I find it interesting that they have Kite's blood soul. That is the only way that I think a new demon could work.
Aurora doesn't have the blood soul IIRC, it's either sealed in Zeth of the Church
Is she is still alive after the island fell in IV?
>If someone becoming a demon is handled well it could become interesting.
We already know it's happening with Rizna, Still hoping it has something to do with Red Eye
Friendly reminder that Rance owes Lia a "reward" for giving Rance Kanami, Tilde and Rick to use in IX
Rance did send Leazas, JAPAN and Zeth letters about what he was going to do in Helman, requesting them to not take advantage of the situation and declaring war. Lia sent him a letter saying he could use Kanami as he wishes but she'd need to give her a reward next time they meet.
I don't remember the exact reason behind sending Rick and Tilde (Other than helping Rance) so I'm going to guess she wanted Helman in Leazas's debt.
I really should replay IX someday
I don't remember he getting a letter from Lia about Kanami. He didn't even had Kanami come along, but was actually going on his own. Then on the way when he needed something he realized that as usual, she would be probably tailing him and called for her.
>she would be probably tailing him and called for her.
Then Kanami appeared saying she wouldn't help which lead to the letter (>>127884835) being brought out and read. Kanami's response is also there
>Leazas send it's Best Swordsmen, upcomming head of the bodyguards and Lia's pesonal ninja
>JAPAN sends their best tactician to assist
>Zeth does nothing
Why is Zeth such a shit country?
Considering he didn't, it's safe to bet that Rance sent the letter to Magic instead then who probably isn't thrilled about being pregnant. Once again Magic is to blame for Zeth being shit
Wow, I turn up to post on a run to give us something to talk about, and I find we're on page 10, although it looks like >>127919021 beat me to the bump.
Pic related, I'm doing 5 Star no bonus, DA turns up very soon. How am I doing?
Things I've learned during this run:
By far, the hardest part of no bonus is beating Hara and Ashikaga, once you've beat them, and maybe the Miko Institute and Uesugi, the game becomes easy again.
Seriously, just vassal Hara... they're not worth the effort in 5 Star no bonus.
Convert Action seems to be a quicker move than Standby, and you can also Convert Action the unit who is using Convert Action, meaning that if your Convert Action unit doesn't have any good targets, it should target itself to make sure it moves fastest.
Natori is even more broke than I though... and I'm saying that after multiple playthroughs.
The time pressure caused by money, luck and Xavier in no bonus means that you'll probably never succeed with any tactics along the lines of "get SAT, spam affection +3, make multiple Battle Rating Up 2 units and win".
Savescumming doesn't significantly decrease the difficulty of the game, almost all of my scums have just been misleading because of misclicks or decisions I've regretted before even seeing the consequences.
Battle Permits shouldn't be as much as a priority as they're often made, in the True Route at least. With broken units like Natori and Dousan, you don't really need all 5 Permits. 3 is usually enough, by the time you've got the money to get all 5, Xavier will be taking them away soon.
I still need to figure out what to do with unequipable stuff like the Emperor Ring, I can never figure out who to give them to, particularly when we're talking about Rance's Love.
Himeko is a fucking good unit.
He was away from JAPAN stalking Rance house in Ice waiting for an opportunity to fight under Rance again. He wasn't sent from JAPAN. Rance didn't ask for anything and actually wanted the other big countries to no get involved. Lia just sent people anyway.
Sounds like she's going to be taking retreats to Rance's castle from time to time to "unwind from diplomatic tensions". Still have no idea how Lia plans to get away with having a child out of wedlock and not have anyone raise an eyebrow.
She must be a contortionist or something. If she was a human, she's lose her arms and legs after one night of sleeping in that from lack of circulation, and that's assuming she doesn't straight up die from carbon monoxide poisoning.
Haruka's all but said for February's release. Considering it's the only game said out of beta-testing, it's either that or My Boss’ Wife is My Ex, which hasn't been mentioned at the last update or quite a while actually. Which would move Haruka to March at most.
Unofficial work doesn't really count though. You don't actually have a schedule to keep in that regard. You can endless delay things, for one thing.
I mean JAST does do that, but it's JAST and they don't really something once a month.
No, Thank You
Forbidden Love with My Wife’s Sister
Warrior Princess Asuka: The Final Chapter
Kara no Shojo 2
So 12 things in total, not counting physical copy re-releases, Higurashi chapters or Go Go Nippon 2015.
Well, that's that done... time to move onto another game. BBA?
It's longer than most of the list, but it's still on the shorter side compared to most VNs out there, especially ones released around the same time it was. The bloat is real.
Yes, obviously. I a word.
By my count, MG has at least 8 active translators and that's not counting people who are already working for the other companies like Conjuerer or koestl.
And Maria translated like maybe 3 of those(KnS2, Free Friends, and Forbidden Love)? Cafe is probably the one who did the others as Cafe does all the messed up nukige games for some reason.
>Zeth was made by demons and human mages working together
>11 years later it's ravaged by Kayblis and then Medsua the following year
I do wonder how they had a falling out with the demons or did Gai's persona turn dark again?
>Zeth was made by demons and human mages working together
As far as we know it only Berksham's apostle helped directly, although considering Berksham's position the order either came from him or Gi directly
Southern Proxy Wars. Leazas, Hellman, and a faction backed by the Demons waged war in the region for control
The faction backed by the Demons won. The kingdom of Zeth was founded as the haven for magicians.
Demon forces, Demon army is also a acceptable translation
We also know that Berksham's apostle was the one leading or part of the group leading the forces due to the position that was granted to her.
That translation is. There was a proxy war in the south where three factions influenced by Helman,Leazas and the Demon War fought. But none of the three win, but actually a new faction that wanted to stop being manipulated by all the three under the mage Parsley. Parsley was helped by Lucy, and won using excavated Holy Magic Sect tech. Zeth was founded and lots of mages went there.
You can also see it on the Helman history blog post as translated by Maria, on pic.
She got hurt sometime before. A passing priest (Mi) healed her mostly but she still had some bandages. By 03 she kept them like an accessory, even thought she wasn't hurt anymore.
Her luck isn't luck so much as that nothing she doesn't want to happen will happen to her.
which has made her quite jaded about life and at times made her flirt with wanting to die.
Whatever she wanted she would get, without needing to put any effort. There was no challenges She started to feel like life had no meaning.
It was very likely a present from Planner, and he loves to give people what they wanted in a way that makes them ultimately regret it.
Evenicle's background images are really gorgeous, its a shame you can't actually access them like CG's
>since I don't believe any other AL church members wear a cross.
Most of the official members we see have objects shaped like a cross in their formal clothing. Crook's pope clothing has a sword shaped like a cross on top of 4 crosses on her clothing, Tortoise (w/e his name was) has a upside down cross on his clothing and Mi has a cross on the cuffs of his shirt. Crook's official pre-pope gear also has crosses as well
