Loved playing this hack. Just finished Chapter 14, and I was very impressed. I like that it allows for varying strategies, and Warren being a boss and a playable unit just made him even more fun, though like Silas, he forgot a couple things about weapons, as he couldn't weild Silver weapons when he joined.
I used almost all of the mounted and flying units (Dita and that Wyvern girl in chapter 14 are the exceptions), and it made a HUGE difference in chapter 13. Saving those villages would have been impossible without Lani and Sven.
Speaking of him, Sven was a boon during my playthrough. Though he never leveled resistance, he was still useful because he hit like a truck, and giving him a hammer just trivialized most armored units.
On to the rest of my final roster.
Algimas was great. No two ways about that, he gave Ephraim a run for his money in terms of sheer killing power.
Wayland was good. Hit real hard, but couldn't quite one-shot.
Tactician was ok. Had difficulty doubling, but no difficulty making the enemy suffer.
Aceline was a godsend. I loved having an Armor Knight that could use bows, and she ended with B ranks in lances (barely) and bows (easily), and got a couple axe swings in while she was at it.
Negu was an exemplar of what Paladin's should be: fast, moderately strong, and rather difficult to hit. Doubled everything, and rarely got hit back.
Gerwulf was awesome. I'm a Great Knight fanboy, and seeing one with 8 movement by default was a joyous experience.
Elaine was essential because she was better than Haylyn in every respect.
Lani was used because she was there.
I kept Celia around after recruiting Brendan, and she killed a few flyers and was a very good chip damage unit.
Brendan did much the same thing as Celia, except he could actually kill things, being a magic-user and all.
Meila was awesome. She actually managed to get a lot of kills in when she was in a combat area, and I promoted her in chapter 14, and being a Rogue fanboy, I was once again delighted.
As I hate dancers in most circumstances, I was surprised by how much I actually used Katarina, and she has definitely secured a spot on my endgame roster.
Warren was not quite as good as Aceline, but those two held the left side of the map on chapter 14 all by themselves, and Aceline wasn't even hogging the kills.
Franck was great to have on the field, and excelled at keeping the right side of the map in chapter 14 down with the rest of the mounted units.
And that was my team, and my opinions, having finally beaten chapter 14, after 3 days of frustrating restarts. Keep up the good work! I would have left most hacks if I had failed as many times as I did, but this one kept me just close enough to victory to want to see it through.
Also, the story is very well done. Actually having politics in anything related to Fire Emblem was really nice, and kept me interested in the dialog, instead of just hitting enter to skip and get to the fighting.
One of my last points: I checked out Al, Wayland and Tactician's promotions, and I can not wait to see how they work on the field, Wayland in particular. That particular type of mobility is a favorite of mine.
I love this hack, and I want to see where this goes. Raider, you and your team are very talented and it shows.
