  1. There's been a few ideas pitched around in my server. Zeke/Nyna, a few Jugdral pairings like Leaf/Nanna, something with the Awakening kids in Fates, or just repeating the Tellius pairing (literally anyone could do the trick.)
  2. There's some surprising creativity in bringing along a minister for the Bridal set. Also a pair of canonical lovers, a piner, and... someone with only occasional romantic teases for no one in particular, and someone so straight laced that romance almost never comes up for them. They'll just throw anybody in these gowns.
  3. From looking at the tags on the PEGI site, I thought it was the "bad language" that got them the 12. The tag as described on the tag description set doesn't list what Bad Language looks like in a 7+ game and 12+ has "mild bad language". I think Seiros stabbing Nemesis in 3H would push them over the 12 for Violence these days, though. Cutscenes have gotten a lot more intense since PoR.
  4. Honestly, sometimes Supports in the modern games just read like RD Supports but extended to fifteen lines each. https://forums.serenesforest.net/index.php?/topic/94525-support-conversation-branches 3H compared to PoR is anything but smaller scale. PoR has like five Supports that change based on circumstances total, and only one of which is not in response to permadeath. The fact 3H is the first game since PoR to return to the idea of Supports that change is also rather telling. This point is one I heartily agree with, but sadly, I don't see Supports going away. If you count the total chains across the series, you'll notice that the total amount per game slowly started dying off from Binding Blade to Path of Radiance before they were removed outright in RD, and they weren't considered vital enough to backport into SD. Both games got panned specificially for lack of Supports, and now Awakening and 3H have more Supports total than Binding Blade, and Fates had like twice as many. SoV and 3H have represented them starting to go back to Base Conversations and the like. I think another argument I've seen a lot in this thread in general for keeping Supports over other means has a bit of a flaw: namely, how costly they would be to include. Supports aren't exactly a zero-sum inclusion, there is active development time being put into each one, and saying "either remove or cut down on these" opens up time to start brainstorming and writing these alternate ideas. Other than the "this is the way it has always been done" advantage, Supports should really present no less of a narrative challenge to justify.
  5. If you look at the detailed results for the ratings boards for both ESRB and PEGI, you'll notice that Camilla's introduction scene is mentioned. I think PEGI actually adds a sexual content warning to Birthright that Conquest doesn't get in one region's boards- the other one considers the Conquest boob bonk as equally worth mentioning.
  6. Not quite the point I was making. Rather than "well, technically, this unit didn't actually need magic to get here" applying case-by-case, the entire banner is like that this go around, and people thinking Dimitri is off for not being magical is causing them to miss the fact that the same applies to the other four. And besides, despite getting to where they are their own ways, Corrin, Ashnard and Berkut are all cured, in whole or in part, by having the magical portion of their condition removed by magic. This banner's selection of units focuses on the human element of their redemption (or death) in their original circumstances, too.
  7. The following is what I expect is the vast majority of changes that Supports undergo based on the circumstances in which you view them- time-based, route-based, progress elsewhere, etc. The source was https://fedatamine.com/en-us/, and as I recall when I compiled this, they're missing at least one example that I know of from other sources, which is why I believe there might be more. They also don't know some of the triggers, and some Supports have triggers listed but no actual changes listed- I suspect the latter is not the case in other languages. "Minor student references" are moments where a character talks about school mechanics like exams or studying that is replaced with a war mechanic post-timeskip. "Timeline references" are when characters date things and correctly add five years if the timeskip's five years have passed. "Social position references" are when characters will correctly change the titles a person uses if they change over the story. Marianne will use a different expression based on Part when referring to Dorte and other animals that make her feel comfortable.

  8. I think Dimitri has been a bit of a lightningrod to hide the fact that no one on this banner is being magically compelled to become Fallen. The entire banner is dedicated to people whom a societal construct has failed in a critical way- the devotion to ideals, upbringing, familial piety and grief for the beloved. The previous Fallen candidates- even Corrin, Berkut and Ashnard- can and should be supernaturally treated to restore their normal faculties or ideals, but this set requires something a bit more foundational.
  9. On Ao3, who drew the image you have as your avatar?

  10. This morning, I happened to be in a discussion with an alternative theory. For some reason, the CGs related to Fleche's betrayal and Rodrigue's death take place in a setting where massive castle walls loom in the background and the floor is made of some kind of tile, which suggests that maybe rather than Fleche joining team Faerghus and betraying Dimitri at the last moment, perhaps Fleche was camping out in Fort Merceus and would've attacked him there. I'm not sure what that'd mean for the chapters after that theoretical one, though.
  11. I'm in a relatively similar boat. After playing all four routes, I can't side with Rhea or against Edelgard. Aside from an extra AM run to finish my non-S Supports with Dimitri/Dedue/Gilbert, the only non-CF runs I feel up to are VW runs. At least when Byleth goes "I miss Rhea we need to save her", I can pretend like she has the same motivations as Claude. I also didn't get much out of the "Dimitri's awesome character arc".
  12. ...Are you thinking of Advanced Tutoring in Explore? I'm thinking of the Seminar option. Being too low in comparison to Byleth shouldn't have mattered to Hubert, since my Byleth had E+ Bows and E Reason. (Her Lances would've given Bernie pause). I successfully got seminars from them with randomly filled participants by using Renown to push them to B main/C sub (D sub on Hubert, I haven't pushed his bows to C before).
  13. Does anyone know what the requirements are for a character to run a seminar? Or even that characters can fail to run seminars at all? I wanted to read Hubert and Bernadetta's blurbs, but because I'm not building them in Bow/Reason and Lance/Bow, the option for them to run a seminar doesn't even show up. I tried using Renown to give them C Reason and C Bow and stuck some bench fodder with Bow/Reason goals, and still Hubert couldn't pull it off.
  14. While not under your command, they don't gain Authority, Movement Ranks or Mastery Skills. There aren't a lot of units where the extra stats are great enough to justify those, mainly Caspar if you're after the Scythe.
  15. ...Now that you mention it... I think I might be in the same boat.
