  1. If everyone else is ready, I will begin the drafting process. I'm not bitter List Randomizer. I just wanna talk. We'll begin with @Bjarne. Remember to begin with FE9 characters, and if your choice has an *, choose an additional FE10 alternate.
  2. Only English since my mom doesn't even speak Spanish and only my paternal great-aunt speaks Hawaiian so that's also a bust. However, I am learning Italian at Uni currently (third semester). Unfortunately, my Italian class is online-only for second-semester Italian on (first semester was in a normal class). As such, there's almost no opportunity to practice with other students, and since distanced learning, it's even harder.
  3. I was in a particular mood about an hour ago, one that made me really wanna do a draft of of these games. As such, I played around with the generic rules for both of these games to make a transfer draft ruleset. Looking for 4 other people to join in. Drafting: • This draft is for 5 players • Draft stretches across both FE9 and FE10 • This draft will be done on Hard Mode for both games • Ike, Titania, Micaiah, the Herons, the Black Knight, and Lehran are free for all to use • Any of the three laguz options are free for FE9 Endgame • Sothe, Geoffrey, Jill, and Lucia are free for FE10. If these units are drafted for FE9, you may choose one FE10 exclusive unit to draft additionally. • Haar is banned for FE10 • Haar and Largo are draftable for FE9 and allows for the same rule as the units in the above rule. • The draft will go for 12 rounds • Drafting will begin with FE9 characters, then move on to FE10 characters. The only exception are the special cases listed above • Drafting will follow a "1-2-3-4-5-5-4-3-2-1-1..." order Rules: • Undrafted units may recruit characters, Rescue and Shove/Smite undrafted characters and NPCs, trade, Escape/Arrive, find hidden items, and transfer items/skills between teams. • Undrafted units may not do anything not listed above, including but not limited to meatshielding, building Supports, opening Doors and Chests, and giving Blood Tide/Night Tide/White Pool bonuses. • Partner and Other units may do as they please without penalty. • Defend chapters count the last played Player Phase for turns if the timer is waited out. • FE9 Chapter 27, Part 2 is not counted for final turncounts. • Transfer bonuses are allowed and expected Exceptions: • Reyson and Janaff/Ulki may be used to obtain the Knight Ring if undrafted. They may not perform any other disallowed actions without penalty. • One of Edward or Nolan is free for each of 1-P, 1-1 and 1-2. • Volug is free for 1-5. • Elincia, Marcia and Nealuchi are free for 2-P • Nephenee and Brom are free for 2-1. • One undrafted unit is free for 2-2. • One undrafted, 7 move unit is free for 3-1. • One undrafted, 6 move unit is free for 3-3 Draftable Units: 60/60 Oscar Boyd Rhys Gatrie Shinon Soren Mia Ilyana Mist Rolf Marcia Lethe Mordecai Volke Kieran Brom Nephenee Zihark Sothe* Jill* Astrid Makalov Stefan Tormod Muarim Devdan Tanith Janaff Ulki Calill Tauroneo Haar* Ranulf Bastian Lucia* Geoffrey* Largo* Elincia Ena Nasir FE10 Nolan Laura Aran Meg Volug Fiona Vika Nailah Nealuchi Heather Kyza Lyre Sigrun Skrimir Naesala Sanaki Tibarn Pelleas Stefan Oliver Bastian Caineghis Giffca Kurthnaga Renning Gareth Teams: Bjarne - Oscar RedMageRBM - Crimsonvolt - Burgerkong - Shimmerfang - Free Units: FE9 - Ike, Titania, Reyson FE10 - Micaiah, Sothe, Jill, Lucia, Geoffrey, Ike, Titania, the Herons, the Black Knight, Lehran
  4. I just can't fathom any story requiring 900+ manga chapters to convey, and I know if I read it, the pace will be unbearable.
  5. I'm back! You may be wondering "Why did it take so long for Shimmerfang to update?" Well, it was because I got stuck on Chapter 8 for almost a year. I was so frustrated and despairing that I pondered just giving up. But a few weeks ago, I decided "No, I will not give up!" So I restarted the run. It went quite a bit better than my first attempt, and I was able to get all the way to Endgame with comparative ease. Hopefully, I will be able to keep this momentum going, but I'm not looking forward to Elincia's Gambit T-T. Part 1 Chapter 8: Glory Unwanted Turns – 13/96 This chapter is the reason that it took me so long to update this draft. On my previous attempt, I only had Micaiah, Nolan, and Sothe for combat, and no matter what I did, they always ended up overwhelmed. After attempting to beat this chapter for months, I said “Screw it!” and restarted the run. I can say that it felt worth it once I finished this chapter. Nolan’s ability to OHKO the mages is such a pleasant development. Sothe seemed to forget how to dodge, but I can forgive him for that. This draft is really making me appreciate Tormod and Co. during Part 1; they really do provide a good strength to work with.

Turns – 11/117 My favorite Part 1 chapter, Endgame has the possibility to be a really bad time. However, I think it went very well, in spite of a few missteps here or there. Black Knight taking the stairs is a great way to do it I find. It would have gone easier if Rafiel had Celerity, but it’s on Ilyana so she can ferry it to the GM. I would have tried to have Micaiah slay Jarod, but that would have been risky and add a turn, so overall, I’m happy I didn’t.

  6. I personally think it would be better to just play the original FE6. I find that the difficulty is largely overemphasized, and the FE6 weirdness is manageable. But if you are determined to use a balance patch, Numbers is the better choice if you are trying to have an authentic experience.
  7. The news recently has left me very tired and very demoralized. I was already a bit down, but the current state of affairs has put me in a very dark place. Yesterday I even removed Twitter from my phone just so I could stop thinking about the issues that are going on. Which was hard for me, because I care a lot about current affairs and believe that staying informed is important. For now, I'm just going to wish everyone here the best and I hope that you are all safe. Take care of yourselves the best that you can, and try to find some positives in these times.

  9. Well, if a system like this was implemented, the units would have to be balanced with them in mind. Plus, classes really need to be rebalanced a bit more anyhow, so that any unit type isn't centralized, like fliers or mounts. I just really enjoy the ability to use whoever I'd like for a map, but it's not really an option for FE games. If someone wants to use a different unit for a map, I feel like it is better if they can.
  10. I only said that because level factored into EXP calculations (as far as I can recall). And I only said this to support the possible idea of playing as the Dawn Brigade in in 3-E.
  11. While there is a genuine possibility I'd really enjoy FE3, there is also the unquestionable fact that I have a hard time playing older games. GBA is the farthest I can go back without pulling my hair out. It's the reason that I have never gotten past FE4 chapter 3 in any attempted run.
  12. In this hypothetical remake, they could do some tweaks to make it so the Dawn Brigade is also at 3rd tier. Like, increasing experience gains in Part 1 with higher level, but otherwise same difficulty, enemies. And adding a few more available seals and crowns would also help with that.
  13. So, one of my favorite game series is Valkyria Chronicles, and one thing that game does is have units level based on class. If something were to be implemented like this in FE, I'd prefer it to be instead that units all level up by chapter. One benefit to this is that it allows for the use of the entire cast, as units can be swapped out freely by map when the situation necessitates. It does come at the cost of the ability to train units, and it may not pair well with RNG growth systems. How would you feel if something like this appeared in FE.
  14. TO be fair, Thani was the only thing that kept Miccy dear from being a dead weight in RD. It let her do more than chip.
  15. Well, there goes my orbs lol. I can't go an miss a Micaiah in my barracks now can I?
