On another world on the continent of Harlan two young lady adventurers are locked in the hold of a slave ship. One is blue-green haired and is named Efera. She can use a sword, but her main skill is that of a magic user. The other is red hair and is named Jiliora. She is quite adapt at using a sword.

All right, maybe "lady" was not the proper word...

With the assistance of Orin, the last member of the Enchanted Race, Efera and Jiliora manage to escape the slave ship along with a boy named Kilian. Kilian is mortally wounded, but before he dies, he gives a family heirloom, the Gude Crest, to Efera and Jiliora.

This begins an adventure that includes a mad deity and a power hungry baron and a set of triplets.

The animation quality in Gude Crest is fairly decent and the story is typical sword and sorcery.

More serious then Dragon Half, but a little lighter then Record of Lodoss War.
