Queen's Blade Rebellion Bitoshi Senki Volume 1

Whew, now this was a lot of work, but here's a decently packaged compilation of the first volume of the Illustrated Stories. I revised the chapters translated by fiwasaki for a better flow, translated most of the blurbs (with interesting tidbits about Cyan), corrected the retcon from chapter 3, and even threw in the "Setra's Room" freetalks fiwasaki once translated, but that literally didn't exist anymore (lucky thing I'm a collector ^^U).

So, it's a great chance to remember the origins of Rebellion's story, or to start reading it if you haven't already. It's still missing a couple of blurbs and the profiles, but eh, good enough for now:

You can also get the CD accompanying it, that seemingly summarizes the story pretty well.

Rebellion story: Mirror/Sendspace
Drama CD: Mirror/Sendspace

Next, shall we start a little vanquishing?

    1. I wanted to get it done sooner, but I just couldn't ^^U

      And yeah, he was basically the best source of QB news and translations... and one day his blog vanished.

  2. Here's Red Sonja!

    http://www.4shared.com/rar/ZN0D2pjo/Red_Sonja.html?

    She is obviously a hot character for any fantasy artist who wants to channel their inner Vallejo...I went through thousands of pics and found so many great ones....

    Maybe you can have her pics with axes represent her "berserker" or "barbarian" mode...I don't remember her using bow and arrow often, so maybe her arrow shot would be more of a de-stabilizing move...and she should be a pain for anyone...I mean, you have to be a masterful swordsman if you survive so many fights just wearing a chainmail bikini...

    Enjoy!

    1. Well, bear in mind that most of her opponents probably aren't fighting to kill; after all, she has made a vow to have sex with any man that fairly defeats her in combat.

    2. Which bugs me...with such a hot body I want her to have some fun...not just waiting for Conan to slap her around...

    3. And I think most of her opponents are fighting to kill...she gets into many adventures fighting monsters other barbarians, etc...she mentions that part about the man who beats her from time to time but the bulk of her fights are to the death...

    4. I wasn't be serious about most of her fights being non-lethal in nature; I know that they are - that was just me being cheeky regarding the bit about her being just that good that she can survive while wearing such flimsy armor (something I attribute to the power Scathach bestowed on her).

      Likewise, it's because of those powers that she can't have sex with a man unless he defeats her first in fair combat; it's the price she pays for Scathach's power.

    5. ah...that part I didn't now or didn't remember...looks like you know your Red Sonja!

    6. Can't say I understand much of what you guys are going on about... ^^U

      But anyways Okami, fantastic job with Red Sonja, that sure is a whole lot of pics with really varied and aggresive poses.

    7. You know, given that Red Sonja is supposed to have sex with whomever defeats her (okay, technically only a man, and even then it's ambiguous if she HAS to or she can then CHOOSE to; but overlooking that for now), it might be fun to turn that into a game mechanic.

      I'm still very unfamiliar with the actual Lost Worlds rules (mostly because I can't seem to find another person to play the game and learn them with), but maybe there could be some sort of "extra" your character gets for defeating her? It doesn't have to be anything huge, but I think it'd be amusing to have.

    1. Ah, right, can you try the ones in the Translations page? All of those should work, let me know if they don't.

    3. Took me a while to go through all those, but I fixed all the Sendspace links that weren't working.
      The Mega links will have to wait until I get back to my old PC, since Mega is apparently very picky about letting you recover your password :p
