As I had some extra free time on my hands, I thought I would do a playthrough of FE7 for fun. Before I begin, I just want to note a few things about the run:
This will be an Ironman run, so no resetting for character deaths or any other reason. With that being said, I would like to know how I should handle game overs. Should the run be considered dead, or should I try again but force some kind of penalty like intentionally killing someone off?
The run will also be Randomized for things like growths, bases, and classes. The full details of the changes can be viewed HERE( Current set-up as a download as I couldn't figure out how to make it viewable online. If someone knows a way to do that, let me know and I'll make the change!) I haven't looked at the log myself in order to keep things a surprise, but I thought it would be fun to let you guys look into the future a bit if you would like. I only asked that you don't spoil things like unit growths or upcoming classes.
For full discloser, I had originally tried the game on hard mode, but after losing a lot on the first map, I thought I would just lower the difficulty. To counter it a bit, I did increase enemy and boss strength by a little so I hope that's okay. I'm not too great at the game, so we can still expect to see deaths due to my poor playing, or bad RNG with units.
Lastly, this is the first time I would be doing something like this so any suggestions for improvements are encouraged. While it is just a fun thing I wan to do, I still want it to be somewhat entertaining to read or there wouldn't be much reason to share it in the first place. Feel free to tell me to focus more on certain things or to cut down on other things.
Now that all the long intro stuff as been said, lets get into the first chapter.
