Description

Jurio is a young boy who must travel to five sacred shrines as part of his warrior initiation rite. The lovely magician Chris accompanies him on his journey. But soon the two young people discover that they must face dangers far beyond those they have imagined. The prophecy of the mysterious White Witch is about to be fulfilled: a great wave will destroy the entire world of Tirasweel if nobody stops the man behind it...

The third entry in Legend of Heroes series (and also the first without the reference to Dragon Slayer universe in its title) introduces a new battle system: the battles in the game occur in pre-set locations, and evolve automatically. The player's task is to program the actions of the heroes (up to four in the party) before the battle. There are eight total "programs", with five moves each (for example, "attack", "attack", "cast healing magic", "attack", "cast offensive magic", etc.), and the player can switch between them during the battle.

Other game elements in Shiroki Majo are fairly typical for a Japanese-style RPG, including reliance on plot events, linear progression through the story, automatic leveling, etc.

Trivia

The Gagharv trilogy is unrelated to the previous Iselfarsa saga (Legend of Heroes 1 & 2) and the later Sora no Kiseki trilogy (Legend of Heroes 6). It is comprised of three episodes: Legend of Heroes 4 (Akai Shizuku, which takes place in Gagharv Year 936), Legend of Heroes 5 (Umi no Oriuta, GY 943) and Legend of Heroes 3 (Shiroki Majo, GY 992). Although the latter was the first game of the trilogy, the events that it describes happen about 50 years after the other two games.
