Goshiki no Maryuu is a follow-up to Haiiro no Majo and is set in the Lodoss War universe in the 6th century NRC (New Royal Calendar), about a decade after the War of Heroes ended with a dramatic battle between two former companions, King Fahn of Valis and Emperor Beld of Marmo.

Haiiro no Majo is one of the several different games set in the fictional Lodoss War universe created by Ryo Mizuno. The game's introductory plot loosely follows the events of the first novel, The Grey Witch, centering on the enigmatic character Karla and her influence on the world's politics.

Fukujinzuke has little to do with the Japanese pickled vegetables it was named after. Rather, it is a small humorous mini-game tribute to Humming Bird's role-playing game Record of Lodoss War: Haiiro no Majo. Besides a sound gallery feature, the game consists of three mini-games. The first is a puzzle which requires the player to assemble a picture by sliding disarranged fragments of it one at a time. The second is a recreation of a typical battle from the role-playing game, featuring a party of high-level characters entering a castle and fighting enemies in a turn-based encounter identical to...

The follow-up to Fukujinzuke is a more elaborate supplement to Humming Bird's Record of Lodoss War computer RPG series and can be considered a mini-RPG. The game introduces six new pre-made characters in various races and classes. The player can choose to either export these characters to Record of Lodoss War II: Goshiki no Maryū, or import player-created characters from there. The player then builds a party out of any of these characters to go through either of the two modes: a series of battles in different locations and an exploration of a pseudo-3D third-person dungeon. The first mode...
