Description

This is a side-story in Rance series, released shortly after the fourth game, but dedicated to an entirely different quest. All kinds of troubles are happening to a factory where a new Happiness Medicine is being developed. The mercenary Rance is hired by the manager to investigate the source of these troubles. First task: clear the factory of the monsters...

This is a RPG with turn-based combat and strong adventure elements (menu with command verbs such as "Examine", "Talk", etc., at every given screen). Unlike the previous Rance games, the battles do not allow free movement on the screen, and are carried out in a more traditional Japanese-style way. There is no physical movement in the game; hostile areas (dungeons) are also explored by choosing menu commands. As in all other Rance games, there are explicit sex scenes in this game.

Description

Protagonist of the Rance series.

A warrior affiliated with the Keith Guild; when he's short on cash, he takes jobs from them. Most of the time, though, he simply travels around having adventures of his own accord, accompanied by his slave, Sill.

His goal in life is to assemble a harem consisting of all the hot women in the world and live it up.

Recently, though, he's taken it into his head to "conquer" the princesses of each of the four main kingdoms in the world - Ria from Leazas, Magic from Zeth, Kouhime from JAPAN, and Siera from Helman. At the moment, he's managed to snag Ria and Magic, with Kouhime being on hold for a few years until she grows up a little more.

Because of this recent pursuit, he's ended up heavily involved with events of historic significance in Leazas, Zeth, and JAPAN, with Helman next in line.

Description

Sill is a slave purchased by the great adventurer Rance in the year LP0001 prior to the events of Rance 01. Rance purchased her for 15,000 GOLD and has been forced to travel alongside him wherever he goes since then. However, Sill developed strong romantic feelings for him and, even though the "Absolute Obedience Magic" once cast on her has long since worn off, she remains single-mindedly loyal to Rance regardless. She was originally from a rich family in Zeth but under "certain circumstances" ended up in the slave market sold to Rance.

She is capable of using both offensive and healing magic, in addition to the creation of magic barriers. She is also known to have a large knowledge of worldly culture and history, as well as an understanding of many creatures. This is apparently due to her studying from a wide variety of books at a young age due to her origins from a noble family.

Description

Sel is a priestess of the AL Church living in the town Red of the Free Cities Alliance. She has helped Rance in a few extreme situations and she's always trying to change him into a better person.

She's a very faithful believer of the church's teachings and believes that god is a gentle spirit that wishes nothing but his son's "happiness".

She's very popular with the kids and the elders of the town. Despite her serious nature, she's also an extremely gentle and pure individual. Would never tell a lie or do something for her own benefit. Unfortunately, Sel is extremely naive as well, often believing in what anyone says, regardless they are thieves or rapists, and she sometimes ends in itchy situations because of this.
