It first began as a series of [[TabletopGames role-playing game sessions]] (first-edition ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', no less), [[AfterActionReport recorded and transcribed]] into a series of novels by Ryo Mizuno. In 1990, it became an animated 13-part {{OVA}} series, and from then on it branched into movies, manga and TV series (some of which were alternate universe versions of the OVA, but which followed the story in the original novels more closely). It even returned to its roots as the most popular Tabletop Role Playing Game in Japan. The ''Lodoss'' RPG was created after Creator/{{TSR}} turned the world down as a ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' supplement.

What is "it"? It is ''Record of Lodoss War'', a sprawling epic which incorporates nearly every Tolkien-esque fantasy cliche in the book, but does so with style. The lovely art and character designs by Yutaka Izubuchi and Nobuteru Yuki make the OVA series a visual feast, in spite of its rather limited animation. The swelling orchestral score by Mitsuo Hagita makes it an aural feast as well.

* VirginSacrifice: In order for the dark priestess Naneel to be reincarnated, it must be done so with the body of one who is of pure blood. The high priestess of Marfa Leyla was the first contender for this position, but after giving birth to a daughter, it was passed on to her. It makes you wonder why the good guys didn't just put Spark and Neese up in the honeymoon suite at one of the inns where they stayed during their quest and let them [[IncrediblyLamePun screw up]] Wagnard's plans for another generation. Garrack and Ryna were both pragmatic enough to come up with that solution, and [[ShipperOnDeck Leaf]] was rooting for them to get together anyway. Aldonova wouldn't have liked it, but he was enough of a naif and a pushover, despite his size and magic, that the others could probably have either distracted him or just told him to shut up and mind his own business.

** Parn and Deed have a CrowningMomentofHeartwarming when he ''finally'' clues in after the fight against Shooting Star. He's still tongue-tied around her, but manages to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B51qNuzPrcw express his feelings via a white rose]] -- and she understands the message perfectly.

* OmnicidalManiac: Kardis, the Goddess of Destruction, [[CaptainObvious no doubt]]. Of course, the kook of a black wizard who wants to reincarnate her also deserves mention. Parn even said that the world would be better of if Falaris, the God of Darkness, was to be resurrected. That's saying something.

* InherentInTheSystem: During the war of the gods, Kardis lay a curse on the continent of Alecrest as she was dying. Then, in an effort to counter that curse, Marfa performed a miracle and split the continent in two, one half being saved and the other half being cursed.
