  1. The first or second? I'd say, much as I'd like to play a game like that... I'd probably go straight for the second one.
  2. It's hard to say. Little is known of the Braggi Blade outside being usable by anyone with Holy Blood. So, to be more exact, a blood-bond with dragons. We could speculate it was made by Braggi himself. Perhaps his dragon was a Divine for all we know. Though one weaker than Naga, naturally.
  3. Because, again, it's the same kind of effect. Consider this, it's possible the Braggi Sword carries holy/light power. If you consider the Magic triangle to be more than just gameplay, Dark beats Anima, while Light beats both. So, an Anima power like Forseti will be disadvantaged to Loptyr's dark power; and likewise to the cult's curse of the Loptyr Sword; but the likly Holy power of the Braggi Blade will not. However, the holy power of the sword isn't as powerful as the holy power of the Naga Tome, so while powerful to dispel a cultist's curse, Loptyr's power can still be more powerful to be overridden.
  4. Loptian Fang? Oh, you mean the Loptyr Sword of Reydrick? Is that from the Exile fan translation? Anyway... While the effect is the same, it's not quite the same thing. THe property of the tome comes from Loptyr himself. While the sword has a curse made by the cult that is meant to emulate the tome's. So no, the Braggi Sword wouldn't be able to negate the Loptyr Tome's effect since it's a more powerful condition than the sword's.
  5. I'd say, I'm still waiting for this bad boy to show up in SRW... I wish Hero Senki could get some sort of remaster/remake. Even if it remains Japan-only...
  6. Honestly, at the end of the day, I won't have a definite opinion over who is the most powerful until we have concrete evidence over how any given power, ability, item, weapon, etc. of any given continent would actually fare against each other.
  7. Truthfully, this is something that can be very subject to what one defines the words. At least how I interpret it, power isn't just strength. So, being the strongest doesn't mean you're the most powerful if you aren't the most dexterous, fastest, resilient, intelligent, etc. For your tower definition, it depends if you mean big in height, big in length, big in width, an average of the three dimensions, etc. With large being or not the length and width, or just the height, or all three, etc.
  8. Not sure on most skilled, either. Strongest, sure, won't deny that. Outside that, though...
  9. I would say "not entirely". On one hand, being called the strongest, even if it's by IS itself, doesn't mean it's true. Ike has always been hyped to a degree. It's warranted to an extent... but only to an extent. And on the other hand, even if he's the strongest, that still doesn't say he's the most powerful.
  10. On that record, this exists: The thread is still okay to be posted with without breaking the necroposting rule, so if the conversation here isn't fully on-topic, it can be moved over there. Whatever I had to say, was already stated there.
  11. The chance to put Lycia in their SoI, yes. Thing is, once it's in, they will make sure it won't get out. They have to keep Lycia in their good graces, since even a hostile takeover will be a distraction that Bern can take advantage of. It's not that simple. The winners can be liars, after all. A morally right (or wrong) action will not stop being such even if people will want to say otherwise. I have a very good example to give; but I'm unsure if to actually say it. Want me to PM it to you? Sure, if people are willing to ignore the fact Eric chose to betray Lycia for Berm... and that he was the one who attacked first. In fact, two of the three villages you can visit outright throw their lot with Roy (and the third simply talks about Door Keys). IT's the same situation in places like Thria and Ostia. Wanger killing Orrun, and Leygance and Devias wanteing to sell Lycia to Bern... those are things hard to ignore. It also plays against what Lycia is meant to be, an alliance of nation-states that sticks together. So the idea people would actively ignore, or not being smart enough... that's very unlikely. If anything, their emotions would drive them to support Roy and Eliwood. On the contrary, it is because they had to bail them out from Bern that made them better accept the idea of Etrurian protection. If they start to do the very things they declared they'd protect Lycia from, they loose face; and regardless if Lycia starts looking back to Bern, or they start to fight back, it would only serve to weaken Etruria's position. So... they have to play nice. In tying Lycia to them... they tied themselves to Lycia in return.
  12. Well, once again, it only matter if Roy fails while actively supporting the rebels, not if he falls against the bandits. The King is not much of an issue. He isn't on the same plane as Arcado and Roartz. Cecilia even says they don't quite do what little King actually bothers to say. Perceval and Douglas only followed the revolutionaries because they managed to capture the King, not because the King supported them, which then they wouldn't have the need to keep him prisoner in the first place. Not to mention, the King didn't even ordered the Lycian Army to head for the isles, Cecilia says Arcado did it without consulting the King. It's that kind of behavior that makes the man not well liked within the Etrurian court. If the King bothers to say anything on the matter, Arcado's detractor have the very known fact he was overstepping his authority in the first place; and so the King is hardly going to side against Lycia in this case. That still depends on how much it is believed on the nature of Roy's actions. Once again, Roy is not a stranger in Etruria, being once Cecilia's pupil and all. What is written in the history books is not going to change if the actions were moral or not. Because it's not coming from a non-bias and omnipresent source. Specially if the truth is being withhold as to why exactly they did it. That's why I said Eliwood wouldn't do it. It's only the possibility that he can that might have Etruria not daring to do anything to Lycia's detriment. Besides, it was a hypothetical action in the case of the hypothetical situation of if Etruria were to start treating Lycia bad. If that happened, how much the people of Lycia would take it? The sentiment would become "We traded a possible tyrant for another"; and would see Eliwood's possible action for what it is: A threat to make Etruria stop. It's not that Eliwood would actually do it, just that he can do it to act as deterrent. The people of Lycia could understand this, that Eliwood might use Etruria's worry of Bern to Lycia's benefit. Besides, if this was a result of Roy failing... well, keep in mind Lycia would know even better of Roy suddenly deciding to betray the pact with Etruria. Few would think Roy turned their backs on them, so more the reason to not doubt of Eliwood's gambit, either. Ultimately, regardless of what would trigger it, instability in Lycia is not what Etruria would want, so they won't do anything that could trigger it. If there was a real threat Lycia would be in danger for his actions, I'm sure it could qualify as inmoral, as Roy would trade the safety of a group of people for the safety of another. An equivalent exchange is not quite morally right. However, since he knows Etruria has to treat Lycia well or else loose their support, it then becomes inmoral to not help the islanders when there's little fear of Lycia suffering from the fallout.
  13. Largely it depends on when Roy fails. As I said, if it's against the bandits of Ch9, then nothing can pin him as disobeying orders. If the soldiers of Ch10 succeed, they'd have to come up with a very good lie painting them as the aggressors instead of them, otherwise they'd just say the bandits got them. THen by Ch12, Arcado and Roartz are too panicked, so even if Roy fails to capture Djuto, the rebellion will start anyway, and Lycia becomes a minor issue at that moment. Roy can only be said to be supporting the rebels after 11A, or 10B, both times a letter is already on its way to mainland Etruria to explain his actions... and once again, it's all about character. Arcado and Roartz are well known for their shady behavior. They'd jump on the "Lycia has betrayed us!" dialogue to discredit them; but their opposition will know something's not quite right, specially since Roy's action seem quite sudden. Roy knows this, Cecilia told him people in Etruria weren't on board on the idea to send Lycia to the isles to begin with. Once again, Roy doesn't have a record for such behavior, which helps him, while Arcado and Roartz do have past behavior that puts their word and actions into doubt. The thing is, regardless, it's in Etruria's interest to keep Lycia on their SOI. They can't abandon it to Bern since then the balance of power reached when each country now effectively had half the continent in their control/influence would be broken into Bern's favor, which Etruria wouldn't want. Lycia itself, while a protectorate, is still autonomous. If they start imposing themselves too much on them, Eliwood can start making noises of "Keep going and perhaps now our next call of help will be to Bern". Even if Eliwood may not want that, it's leverage at his disposal; and Etruria knows this and might not want to press their chances. The main Army may have been sent to the Western Isles; but Lycia wasn't left completely defenseless. Considering how the army itself was at ARaphen yet places like Laus, Thria, and Ostia still had plenty of soldiers around, that means Lycia still has an army in the form of their local levies to defend themselves; and a war with Lycia, even if Etruria will win, won't be good since then BErn can capitalize on the situation. The important detail to consider here is that: Roy is quite aware of this situation. He knows Lycia is protected enough from any possible fallout of his actions, which is why he's willing to disobey orders to help the people who aren't as protected.
  14. Being morally right or wrong is not a matter of succeeding or not, though. Once he knows the people of the isles are being oppressed, turning a blind eye will be morally wrong, not deciding to help them out and fail. Roy is putting belief in the system. He hopes that by ensuring the mistreatment goes public, the Etrurian council and many members of the court will finally take action against Arcardo and Roartz; and thus Lycia itself won't be affected negatively by his actions. Just after arriving at the isles, Cecilia tells Roy those two were already not well liked, because they're taking advantage of the King's grief of his son's death in only looking over themselves and being self-serving. It was Arcardo himself who asked for the Lycian Alliance Army to deal with the problems at the isles, because it's his mining operations and profiting that were at risk. If it wasn't for the fact he'd be helping the locals, which would be morally right, helping Arcado would be inmoral, helping a shady character with his selfish desires. Ultimately, it boils down to what sounds more suspicious. Arcado already has shady spots on his record. The LAA suddenly siding with the rebels, specially when you have people like Cecilia vouching for Roy's character; and the fact Roy spent time in Etruria so he's not quite a complete stranger, as well as his actions in Lycia to quell down the Bern-friendly rebellion, is going to put more suspicious on Arcado. There's also the fact that Roy himself doesn't outright goes against Etruria's orders. Before he sends his letter to Cecilia, he's fighting against bandits (Ch9), Etrurian forces who deliberately attacked him first (Ch10A), or Etrurian forces outright attacking villagers (Ch10B). Only in the last case he'd be outright accused of disobeying orders; which he hopes to explain. Which, again, Arcado's shady behavior is already well-known by the people from whom their opinion on the matter, well, matters.
  15. If it's just to have one more archer, then Asaello can do just fine without disrupting the story, as it were. As the "Hitman of Conote", he'd have to have good stats, too.
