To mod user - have you thought about making some of the less important unique commanders capturable in battle before their nation being defeated? That's generally ffa problem but it takes too much time to actually capture a few interesting commanders and you need to stall to make a good roster.

Kayblis wrecks shit in AI.v.AI, so it prevents him from cleaning up humanity too fast. The AIs don't have neutral, you do.
Yeah. There's a tad to many uncapturable commanders right now. I should make some of the fiends capturable to start so Kayblis isn't at full force the entire game.
Maria is perfect. She'd look better preggers though.
Maris's Recovery Rain 2 skill is broken. It's supposed to heal one action point from every character, but it clearly doesn't. Once it works, it should be borderline-OP if used right.
Camilla should be attacking, she's a melee character.

I'm making changes and I'll probably post 1.0.2 in 12 hours or so.
Also: I nerfed Earthquake so it takes 4 action points. i.e. Kayblis can only use it once in a battle.

Should I give Redeye Annis beam????
He's a pretty reckless guy, and it prevents him from wiping out your entire party. He's honestly more dangerous than Kayblis.

Annis uses Annis Beam
Redeye sees Annis Beam

It makes sense.

Stark_Naked
Stark_Naked

Maris's Recovery Rain 2 skill is broken. It's supposed to heal one action point from every character, but it clearly doesn't. Once it works, it should be borderline-OP if used right.
I'm not sure about that. Half the time, she only gets to use it very late into the fight and sometimes she doesn't even get to cast it even if I use it on her first move. She's just too slow. Even if she returned moves, there won't be time to make use to them. It's okay that it depletes all her actions but maybe it should be casted without preparation for it to be good.

Techpill
Techpill

RedEye is retarded but I don't see him attacking his own allies by accident like Annis does.

Harmless_Venom

Well we'll see how Maris goes with that change.

Nah. It's quite clearly just an Annis special.

Inmate

I wouldn't be an accident, it would be on PURPOSE, because it's ART! It's DRAMA! You might think he's just slaughtering his allies indiscriminately, but it's all part of his grand design, it's the ultimate drama by the ultimate life form! Of course a filthy human wouldn't understand!!!

Agreed, it'd still be awful even with action point restoration to the whole team. That's how bad it is right now. If you want to keep the charge as necessary you'll have to increase her speed.

StonedTime

To be fair, half of the blame for that one goes to Hornet.

Firespawn

In my experience Kayblis is worse, you can at least cancel Red Eye's preparation. Also I'm not sure if it is your intention or unavoidable but Annis beam puts the bar in her team's favor even while hitting allies.

in that game it wasn't exactly an option. hornet was down to her last territory by turn 15 and was in such a bad shape she wasn't even attacking. Was winning a couple defenses but kayblis was winning too.

so I did the only thing anyone who played KR would do. I neutralized hornet and threw myself at kayblis in a attempt to relieve some of the pressure.

I wonder how long it would take to roll a god-tier commander from that event. Like, are there limits on the stats and stuff, or could someone theoretically just roll a 9/9/9/9 six action general with a 40+ level cap and great skills?

Lunatick
Lunatick

There's statistical limits on all the stats unfortunately, and they'll only ever a tech skill (last slot). At least unless you're playing (vanilla) FFA, in which case they can have one of the twin action/intelligence skills with 1/30 chance.

Emberburn

I think stats are bound to be in the shit zone, I don't know about levels though.

TalkBomber
TalkBomber

Actually it's reasonable easy. The damage is calculated all at one place, and then it adds/subtracts at the end. I just need to add some code to better control it. It worked most of the time earlier today, but it failed for some edge cases.

Is Demon King Rance implemented in the mod uploaded? How do you get him?

likme

Current level is 15+rand(15) // rand output starts at 1
Max level is current level + 5
30 is added to the max level 1/40th of the time

Search/negotiate/construct have a base value of rand(3)

50% of the time, ONE of the s/n/c stats has rand(4) added to it

So the best s/n/c stats you can get are 7/3/3

Warrior combat stats are 0 + rand(3)

Archer combat stats are 3 + rand(2)

Foot soldier combat stats are 3 + rand(3)

If you need a dungeon grunt, grind footsoldiers.

20% of the time, the unit will have one of these as their tech skill: pastebin.com/raw/tzCbFbpJ

current level above 30 is literally impossible, though the max level can get high

I once tested the shit out of it, there's limits somewhere but without looking at the code I don't think I can know them.

Levels can be okayish. Ones in high 30 are not rare and could be quite helpful in early dungeons.
Debatable, they seem to glitch weirdly. Pic related, although I think that could just be a general problem with the dungeon mechanics rather than the units.

Good to know, that'll save me some work in the future.
Where on the Wiki could we even put this?

Asset tech is never a waste of an action fan senpai
If we're going to stick to insane methods. H-ing Sill for 1 SAT per fan and then getting the Amazing Old Men (and therefore their Merchant skills) is probably better gold per fan than rolling the dice with the students.

You can also get Merchant from the students, funny enough, but the Amazing Old Men are actually useful aside from that. I think it's theoretically possible to make the students useful, but basically only if you mod them so that the RNG is rigged in favor of utility commanders.

Things that make the game "easier":

- Made loading saves faster if you don't hold ctrl
- The prison is now unlocked automatically without spending a fan.
- You have at least 9 points to spend for 1-star or higher games and the third action fan only costs 9 points (compromise. playing 1-star or higher until you get three actions is hell on earth unless you're following a guide)

Things that make the game "harder":

- Niwa's starting troop count has been reduced to 380
- Ranmaru's starting troop count has been reduced to 300
- True generics (such as the ones from "Force a student to become a commander") now cannot have "Asset tech".
- The search/construct/negotiate stats of true generics are now independent of eachother. Before, there was a 50% chance for a random one of them to have a random boost. Now there's a 1/6 chance for each of them independently to have that random boost. This slightly reduces the chances of having any boost, but allows generics to theoretically have good search/construct/negotiate skills, and allows them to not be completely worthless.

Incredibly minor changes that only affect early game OCD.

Stupidasole

His earthquake should consume all actions or require preparation to be honest. I know he's meant to be super strong but he's unbeatable if he spams it.

idontknow
idontknow

I think making it cost 2 action points would make it more balanced
But as you said, he is supposed to be one of the strongest being in the Continent, so it make sense for him to be that powerful

farquit
farquit

It's pretty absurd that an all-out attack that destroys all opposition is as costly to use as the normal attack that hits one unit.

FastChef
FastChef

it'd be nice if it was either not instant or front row only.

the one small advantage I have is that the AI keeps putting generics up front an the dark lords that can one shot me in the back. All kayblis does is spam dark lords in defenses and attacks now, there's minimum 2 in each battle, one is manageable and typically one is in the back row, but kayblis is just auto lose if he's anywhere. front or back.

farquit
farquit

Why is Lelyukov a diviner?

New_Cliche
New_Cliche

Since it's called "Earthquake" it would be weird if it was front row only
So I think with 1 turn of preparation with 2 or 3 shurikens to cancel it would be better

Firespawn

It was an error
It should be fixed in the next patch (when there will be a new one)

Flameblow

So I think with 1 turn of preparation with 2 or 3 shurikens to cancel it would be better

and that would make Kanami not so shit too when fighting him

Hornet get.

I've formed the maginot line, being the only one to border Kayblis now and all along are barrier 9s. Now that the human realm is safe I can turn my attention to others, such as the AL Church who were abusing Hornet.

One step closer to being able to reasonably fight Kayblis.

CodeBuns
CodeBuns

By the way, don't know if this is intentional or not, but you can't reduce dark lords troops. which is a bit troublesome if you are using mansion 2s that will skyrocket troop counts, on top of them gaining some each win.

Not entirely sure if the troops even do anything for them.

BlogWobbles
BlogWobbles

IIRC, for solo commander, troops counts are used for the counterattack damage
But since Dark Lords don't do counterattack damage, I'm not sure

BlogWobbles
BlogWobbles

Some of them do some counter damage. Not sure which ones specifically but Silky does counter damage to everything and I definitely have taken counter damage while fighting some from Kayblis.

Anyting more? Probably mindset related... Ah, just play rance games and listen to motivating Rance songs.

Ithere really loved Shizuka.

So that was drawn by Gyoukai and posted on a blog post.

No he's not, he's a complete lazy asshole who spends all his money as soon as he gets it, does the bare minimum at everything, treats people like scum... He's basically a huge scumbag, the opposite of a role model. I think that's the point, he subverts the trope of heroes being heroic.

Booteefool

It seems the series just so happens to minimize the number of cute girls responsible for the deaths of countless people.

Has Camilla gone out of her way to kill girls? She's just following Kayblis's orders in Rance VI. I'm not sure how many demons Rance tries to fuck since I haven't played Kichikuou Rance, but the number wasn't that high in canon. I may be mistaken, but Lia has only been directly responsible for the deaths of like maybe 10 people in total, the bad guys in Zeth and JAPAN were dudes.

Crazy_Nice
Crazy_Nice

It's more like Rance himself minimizes it, rather than the series as a whole.
Gele was around for 1000 years and a lot of people were killed on a daily basis. The number of people that are born and die in a period that large is absurdly high. The farms ensured that the population was high regardless of the slaughterfest.

RavySnake

Rance 5D is short, cute and at times very stressful. Rance VI is pretty good if you can tolerate Rance starting the game by being a total asshole. I think the first redeemable act Rance does is kill the leader of the white team because Rance is more qualified and less of an asshole than him.

Does Rance Quest have a performance test like Rance VI does?
It doesn't have an in-game one, however before the game was released, Alicesoft released a separate benchmark program you can run to see if your system can run it. There should be a link to it on the wiki somewhere. I think it's even translated. So I guess, in a roundabout way, Rance Quest got a translation after all?

How many girls did Rance sleep with in Rance IX? If there's only like 20 girls around, it makes sense that Rance would sleep with them over and over again. Especially when compared to Rance sleeping with 300 women in Sengoku Rance in like six months.

It can be just that a demon was spotted near Leazas and they call Rance to deal with it. They don't even need to be attacking anyone, like Rei visiting his lover, just by being a demon people would be scare of them.

I love Daibanchou and keep coming back to replay it all over again every other month. Trieds Daiakuji once while I was learning japanese and it was pretty fun, but I got nuked into a gameover and decided to go find something else to practice japanese with so I can know what the fuck I'm doing when I come back to Daiakuji.

What did you like in Daiteikoku? If story or theme, each has their own so liking one won't tell you anything about the others. The main characters are pretty different from each other too.

If you like the type of game, where you choose the direction you will conquer, fight different factions and can get many different character on your group depending on your choice, then you will likely like the others.

On gameplay / difficulty, Daitekoku is quite different from the rest of the series and SR. It's gameplay is more math based, where you can calculate which ship will attack first and exactly how many damage will be done. The other games have more time limits than Daitekoku, so you need to run against time and can't take your time to do events and build up as often as you can in Daiteikoku.Which make them quite more challenging than Daiteikoku, and also in need of more playthroughs to see all content.

Ero and art wise the other two dai games are older, so expect and older art and shorter scenes. Also they don't have voice (daibanchou only has for battle lines), if I remember correctly.

If you liked the gameplay in Daiteikoku/SR, you're going to like Daibanchou. Can't say for Daiakuji since I don't know jap but it looks similar too. Also, the soundtrack is amazing. And the scenes imo are more fappable than alot of the newer AS titles.

Need_TLC

Daibanchou was supposed to have so much more voice acting, especially on Rouga's front. They cut out a lot of his lines for the introductory scenes for each of the six heroines to fit in with that visual novel cliche of where the protagonist is supposed to "be you" sort of thing.

If you open up Daibanchou Sound Files in ALD Explorer, it should be in the 150's somewhere.

Thanks for the link. The modern setting game that they're making looks pretty interesting too.

The two main criticisms I have seen of Daiteikoku are that the protagonist is bland and that all of the battles are binary win/lose encounters with static formations. Both of these criticisms have merit, although they need to be considered in context.

Togo definitely does fall short compared to a lot of Alicesoft protagonists. Akuji is ruthless and a womanizer, Rouga is hotblooded and a womanizer, and Rance is hilarious and a womanizer. Togo is a womanizer whose only other defining trait is trying to be a decent single father, which is honestly not all that interesting. Then again, the Japanese faction is, as a whole, not all that interesting, and there are other Alicesoft protagonists who are even less compelling than Togo (sup Nanas, sup Aster).

In theory, the battles being binary win/lose encounters with static formations sucks because it greatly limits both your strategic and tactical options. In practice, it's actually not so bad. This is because the enemy formations have scaling based on how many planets you've conquered, because every planet has optional objectives that can be very challenging to capture, and because you can attack planets in any order that you want. The highlights for me were taking on the Pacific fleet at Hawaii and helping Germany actually win at Stalingrad by conquering it from the eastern side.

The main reason the game gets a bad rap is not because of these failings, but because it did not live up to the massive hype it had. People were expecting another Rance VII or Daiakuji, and they got something that was alright but definitely not of the same quality.

The first passage is your classic "On a continent floating in space, in a certain place..." and then it points to the place where the story begins. But since the people translating it didn't actually know Japanese, they ran it through and it came out as "A huge continent somewhere in space. A phrase worth one point." The second part doesn't even make any sense.

Probably Otakon if that does happen since VI was also announced at Otakon.

If Sengoku gets announced at Anime Central, the chances will be a lot higher. I personally think that even if it gets stalled for Sengoku, it would be best for MG to announce the same year as Sengoku to acknowledge how well Rance VI did. It helps that Maria is almost done with Sorcery Jokers, so Quest could theorectically be released half a year after Sengoku. I think a non-Rance Alicesoft game is more likely though. There could be 3 Alicesoft games announced in one year, but IIRC, only Softhouse Seal managed to get that many titles at once.

I'd honestly be ecstatic if it was Escalayer though. I didn't buy Haruka just for Rance. Evenicle too, but that goes without saying.

Additionally, I want to see Aurora in as many disguises as possible and her being poorly dressed up in a BSDM suit with a half bald wig on is on my wish list.

Togo is a womanizer whose only other defining trait is trying to be a decent single father
When that actually comes up anyway. It's mentioned a few times then kind of dropped. Like a lot of things in Daiteikoku really.

Daiteikoku has no events happen when you're not conquering things, whereas Sengoku had plenty of timed events and H to keep you occupied. Dividing most of the events into a single one you choose each turn, along with the strict requirements for conquering planets, you turn down actually doing character events, or events for fun, over recruiting more of them, or other things to benefit you from a gameplay standpoint.(Of course, most of them aren't translated in the patch we have either, which also discourages doing them). So this doesn't help matters when Dokutsu loses and you lose the one story thread that actually keeps the game moving.

Togo is a poorly done womanizer, because with little effort on his part, he succeeds all the time. Rance, in comparison, has as many failures as he does successes, with women and in battle. He's humbled plenty of times. Togo is the great tactician of Japan, and basically never fails. We mostly never see him plan, make strategies, or put much effort towards girls, so it's mostly informed.

With Togo, girls liking him seems more like a rule than a development, which introduces plenty of jarring scenes where girls just start thinking about him out of the blue, or just 'being okay' with him flirting around. How many girls are shown not being okay with Rance's monogamous nature? Lia and Copandon off the top of my head have shown it, and that introduces standards to their character. When a girl likes Togo, they lose character, because they're suddenly okay with things that they previously wouldn't be, or prioritizing a man who's talked to them twice over their previous ambitions. Rance girls often continue their own goals regardless of their feelings for Rance. They continue being characters.

2- Bitch was killed by Upsilon the instant he was activated and there was nothing no-one could do about it.
3- It wouldn't matter if it was Bitch, Lelyukov or even Stessel, the Toushin wouldn't have ended in Helman's hands because they can't control it.

this. I've seen a couple mention this on the thread the last few days.
The realm boundary is there to protect that AIs, not you. Fiends have a +10 percent chance of a winning an AIvAI battle, so they cream humanity pretty quickly. Kayblis and Rance have a +20 percent chance. Satella has a 100 percent chance of winning.
I might as well just give the whole formula. It's base 50%, plus 5 * (the troop difference / 500), plus a modifier. If a country is in a riot, they have a 0% chance of winning.

You need a least one. The AI draws a number from 1 to 20, and the barrier blocks if 5 + num of barriers is higher than that number. Each barrier is a 5% chance, except the first which is 25%.

Biggest problem is Maginot line not having Castles. FFA destroys the outermost defense, which was the maginot line's castle. Will fix.

Anyways, I've posted this before, but if anybody can create a new version of this, I can update the title screen. Your artwork, on the front page of DHR.

It's bad because the pretty much same strategy nearly works at all times, and there are only few planets where a special strategy is needed.

She has 4 version of scenes:
1) Shizuka goes to Rance room for the "payment". Longer scene.

2) Shizuka goes to Rance room when he calls but not expecting sex as the deal was done. He rapes her anyway. Also a bit longer scene.

3) Shizuka won't fall for it again so Rance suddenly shows up on her room and rapes her. Shizuka thinks that she need to comes up with a counter measure. Short repeatable scene.

4) Rance suddenly shows up on Shizuka room to rape her but is caught by a magic trap and is denied sex. Short repeatable scene.

Those 4 scenes happen for the first time in that order. Then after you do the 4th scene, you get either 3 or 4 randomly.

But considered 3 is the "I need a countermeasure" every time even though on 4 she already thought of something, my guess is that while gameplay wise the player can do it as many times as they want, story wise Shizuka is fucked by Rance 3 times in 03, as after that she starts setting the magic trap.

It's glorious. I plan on doing it for healing spells too. SR doesn't feel the same when you don't spend half the time waiting for lightning to cast. I could make a patch for normal SR, but it involves three files I've made heavy edits everywhere, so there's a decent amount of overhead time.

I was referring to the !==. I found it as weird syntax, but I guess some people use it.

Anyways, I spent a few hours making a much needed improvement, and it feels good. I'll take the chance and go to sleep when I can.

On an unrelated note, I accidentally dumped my Q-Tip container into the chicken-nabe I cooked earlier, so they're all ruined. It's a pretty rough life

If Rance X really starts about 10 months after the end of 9, how many woman would have given birth to Rance's child already?

Pastel, Isoroku, Fellis, Lia, Teru, Senhime. Magic also is pretty much confirmed? Also possible Kanami as she gets pregnant during 9 considering the child is born just a bit after Lia's. Although they may hae just shoehorned that for the Kanami end and it isn't supposed to be canon.

TreeEater
TreeEater

Magic, Lia, Senhime and Teru. Kanami was only pregnant in a non-canon ending.

kizzmybutt
kizzmybutt

I'm sure Kanami could have asked Sill to not cast the birth control spell on Rance for a bit as she tried to conceive.

Fried_Sushi
Fried_Sushi

But for Kanami to have her child born at the time it did, she need to get pregnant before the non-canon ending, during 9 events before the part where it divides in routes/endings. Which means she may be pregnant in canon too.

Kinda like Senhime too. We learned she got pregnant during her ending, but it happened during her scenes in 9 before the ending, so it makes sense and comes to no surprise when the same is revealed in her true epilogue.

whereismyname
whereismyname

What are the odds that Kanami became pregnant at the tail end of Rance Quest?

Techpill
Techpill

On a Tomino-memo Alicesoft said that Kanami got pregnant during 9 and that Lia announced that she was pregnant when she was so for 3 months (she does that at the end of 9 so she got pregnant about a month before it starts?). In that case Kanami probably got pregnant early 9.

The text in question:
○ランス9のかなみルートでリアは子供が産まれて、ちょっと後でかなみも子供が産まれました。
じゃかなみはランス9前に妊娠していましたか?

リアが妊娠発覚して発表したのは妊娠3ヶ月ほどらしく、
かなみが懐妊したのも9時点よ。

The list of things Rance did on Bolgo Z which resulted in he being wanted when they pass by there on 9:

A passing by diviner came to him and aid something he didn't like so he did her.
A young girl tried stealing his wallet so he fucked her and left her naked on the street.
A couple was being unpleasant so he tied the man and taught the woman what a real man is like.
He is attacked by the garrison but turn the tables on them and do one round with a female member.

And some people says he isn't that brutal on the later games.

It doesn't matter that he may continue to adventure around. The main reason it's the last game is more a question of scale, there just won't be anything nowhere as big left for him to do.

For around the half of the series he was intended for it to be a build up to a conclusion.

I think that the story will end, but the games and content overall will not. Remakes, anime adaptions, and extra stories untold from some of Rance's adventures. Once Alicesoft is done in Japan and have finished the story, they can focus on the west.

Why is Leazas underpowered relative to mages
If Leazas started extremely strong, campaign would be too easy. While Asuka/Melfeis may be too strong, most Zeth mages should be mid-late game units.
I can give two versions of characters like Rick so that he's sufficiently strong in FFA. i.e. pre-unlocking By La Way.

Also, do you guys believe that mages aren't "underpowered" now? It's just the ones in SR (Rizna) were lackluster.

BunnyJinx
BunnyJinx

Mages are fine I think, the AI uses them terribly though. I know zeth doesn't have much for commanders but they are very often in the front row. Also in FFA Rizna comes with an absurdly lowly troop count, at least when I played. I know she's a mediocre mage so she shouldn't be too good but at least a reasonable troop size, or being a warrior instead would be nice.

Stupidasole
Stupidasole

Oof, that reminds me. I need to add some possible unit set-ups. There's default unit setups like archers and tacticians in the back, but because no AI has mages, the set-ups don't have rational places for mages.

I still believe that even if you mod the stats of the available units, the Mage class sucks in an unmodded game. If that's in any way debatable then I've missed something huge.

In theory this would mean that a second Honda Masanobu spawns when the Tenshi Sect falls.

One of the reasons I finally got ad-block is because the wikia's shit got too annoying.

He's purposely looking backwards because he's a coward that always runs away and makes girls fight in his place. A real hero and all-around stand up guy, like Rance for example, always faces the right way of course.

Jesus christ how horrifying. I haven't seen an ad in years, honestly. Watching TV is unbearable to me now because of how much the ad-free internet has spoiled me.

just put up 1.0.2

There's a shit-ton more that I want to do, but I figure it'll be a while before I catch up to my ideas. If there's anything noticeably jenky let me know. Other than that, I'm heading to sleep and getting ready for the research grind tomorrow.
Patching is by copying the existing files. Refer to Installation if it's the first time.
character edits like Essential flags will only take effect on a new run

I thought this was to make him even more useless, I'm sad to see it go. He was so terrible he basically sabotaged his own army by taking up turns.

Raised Earthquake turn cost to 99

What does this mean?

Turn cost of 99 is hardcoded to take all actions

I hope Rance 10 at least tell us that Mekill is now working as a maid on Rance's castle, she doesn't even need to appear (or appear just in a CG with the other maids).

Maid that was whored out by Helman in 03.

I'm sure she is. Even the bread thief from Rance 1 is there.

I keep looking at that Katakana and trying to see if there would be a more feasible way of translating her first name but I'm either getting Mekill or Miki-Lou

Yeah, she would have been there in Quest if it came after 03. It's a pity the remakes, which made some of the previously minor characters quite more interesting, were done after Quest.

From what the wiki says, she's the daughter of a mayor and a wealthy family that just so happened to be forced to act like a maid due to Helman's demands. Chances are that she has a similar education level as Hikari and has been doing higher payed work if she didn't get married off.

She really wanted to become Rance's maid though. The scenes with her and Rance in 03 are quite heartwarming.

Hate rocky at the start, why do I have to have this dude following me around?
Right around the time Rance accepts Rocky, I have gotten over it and accepted him as well

The writing for this game is incredible

When I can I do the event where Rizna becomes immune to magic in VI? I'm close to fighting Camilla, maxed Rizna's FR, had the event where she overhears Tamanegi and beat King Hanny. Is it post -game or something?

Did you have her graduate?

Fair enough, I've been adblocking ever since YouTube started having adds. Fuck, that's probably over a decade by now.

Can confirm. I don't even own a TV.

When exactly does Rance accept Rocky? Right now, I'm stuck at the "Rocky kinda an idiot but at least he's learning to be a better person." phase but at least got out of the "Rocky is kinda a hypocritical jerkass teen" part.

AwesomeTucker

I dont know if there is an actual "Rocky man, I love having you around" or anything like that, but I havent seen Rance abuse him in like a dozen story events, so I can only assume that he has accepted him

Is it a mission where she get's immunity? If so, that might be it since because I haven't beaten the game I still have an active mission

So how do I interact with Athena and Calory in KR? I know they're in the game, as are Toushin Toushi and the Greening village, but I've been to both and seen neither and the guides don't say a word either

I'm pretty sure it was just an event for me. Sometimes events don't show up until you finish missions, but I can't say whether this one is of that case or not.

Are you on the post game (chapter 7) already? Her magic immunity event only unlocks there.

Oh no, I'm right before post-game. I thought it was available right before Camilla, thanks for the info

Athena is in Ice isn't she? Calory is in Greening Village, probably only accessible after events in the war with Kayblis.

Thanks, just found Athena
Weird how you can't do anything with her in the game, you'd think she'd be more useful than Asuka at the absolute least, especially if Freak made her another robot army

One thing I could say about Athena, she would make a great idol because she's an idiot, she's cute and she has a voicebox that can duplicate any voice.

Dreamworx

I know what you're referring to, but I've not bothered with that character and probably won't since I'm near the end of the game. I'm only a month or two away from the monster war triggering on its own

Soft_member

Is there an event in Kichikuou Rance where Athena 2.0 becomes an idol? I never played KR and I remember someone saying that they added Athena as an after thought just because they had enough time and money for her image and text.

viagrandad
viagrandad

Oh, I guess not. I knew there was an idol character and made the assumption that the other user was talking about the idol character and Athena having something to do with each other, but apparently they don't

Kapalla Uchi, she's a mage, a crappy unit in Quest. I wish she had some special interaction with Athena or something, maybe it'd have made her less pointless.

Kay seems a lil too weak now.

He brought sandal to 1k by attack, then the demon mage did his aoe, then kay earthquaked and no one died, the following turns were Feliss and Hornet two shotting everyone but a out of actions kayblis with charged attacks. Meglass only took ~500 health damage and Kenshin only ~800 troop damage between the demon mage and the earthquake.

Not to say it's worthless, if he had the rest of his army at full health it'd have been a pain in the ass.

What if it canceled preparation?

Carnalpleasure

Maybe it could take two actions instead of all? Or just increase the raw damage even more.

Haruka is the strongest

he has 6 actions, so 2ap might be a bit low.

It's her clearing event. Not sure if you can do it in the main game or not.
