Maid's Story Walkthrough/FAQ Version 1.0 Table of Contents: 1. Introduction 2. Guide 3. Thanks 4. Credits Written By: Daniel Lee Hill E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Introduction Maid's Story is a hentai game published by Jast in 1996. In this game, you're a collage graduate who's been recently hired to train three women to be maids in a mansion in the countryside. It's your job to teach them the correct skills, while managing the condition and finance of the mansion. Characters Tatsuaki - This is you. Alice Tachibana - The secretary of the mansion. She's described as a beautiful, intelligent woman. She was previously a corporate secretary, and has now been at the mansion for 2 years. Hitomi Matsumoto - Brown hair. (More to come). Sanae Yuki - Red hair. (More to come). Azusa Kobayakawa - Black hair. (More to come). Guide Once all the introductions are complete, the gameplay begins. You'll be presented with a complex series of menus and buttons. Each girl has their respective file with their name and picture identifying them. Next to their picture, you'll see a green bar labeled Stamina. This is how much physical energy they left; it's very important to keep this at an acceptable level, otherwise they won't be able to complete their work. Next, you'll also see a sort of dialogue box with hearts in them below the stamina bar. This indicates how much they like you. The more they like you, the more cooperative they'll be. If this is too low, they won't perform their assigned duties. Below those, you'll see a chart showing numbers for Washing, Shopping, Cleaning, Cooking, and Service. These numbers represent what level that particular skill is at. Naturally, the higher the level, the more productive they'll be at that task. This can be very important when the house gets really dirty. After that, you'll see a menu labeled Today's Schedule. The girls will pick out a schedule on their own, but it may be necessary to make some adjustments. Do this by clicking on Morning, Noon, or Afternoon on the schedule you wish to change, then the desired task from the buttons towards the bottom-centre of the screen. Clicking Auto will generate a random schedule automatically. I'd recommend making your own however, since some tasks require more immediate attention. To determine this, look in the lower left corner of the screen, where it says Kinbikan Information. You will see Garbage, Dirt, Laundry, Food, and their corresponding status. It's important to keep these in check, otherwise your maids will be unhappy. If a maid is exhausted, she will need to have Rest in her schedule. In the lower right corner, you'll see Today's Guest and also the date. If you have a guest that day, one of your maids must have Service in their schedule. Once you've set your schedule, click Confirm. During the day, you can pick a girl to patrol; one each in the morning, noon, and afternoon. You'll be given the opportunity to either encourage or get angry. I believe getting angry will cause the girl to work harder, sometimes improving her skill at her current task. At the end of the day, the secretary will report to you, followed by the night lessons. This is where the hentai part of the game comes in. Select a girl, and then off you go. If you didn't patrol a girl during the day, you won't be able to choose her for night lessons. Once you begin, you will be presented with various choices. Don't expect new activities to go smoothly, especially if your relationship with the girl isn't good, or if their stamina is low. Your progress can be seen in the lower left corner, as well as the girl's stamina. There isn't really much different in the options, except for the images you'll get to see. Basically just keep at it and they'll come around. Later on, you can purchase toys for use in night lessons. Be careful not to overexert the girl, or her stamina will be too low for the next day. That's the basic concept of the gameplay. In the future, I hope to update the FAQ with more details. Thanks to. Jast for publishing this, as well as other hentai titles. Alicia Belliveau, for having the patience to teach me how to play this game in the first place. ^_^ Credits This guide is c2002 Daniel Lee Hill. Maid's Story is c1996 Jast and Blitz!
