  1. Okay then if they aren't like explicitly elemental, then, like, is that relevant to the conversation?? I mean, if their element = jobs, than that's kind of cool, but I'm not sure if that's the case? Idk I think I'm a bit confused by your points. ^^" If they expanded it, that could be really interesting - obviously it shouldn't distract from the lighter tone, but what if say, an earth-based dragon, who, in this example, usually makes pottery and the like, wanted to work in a forge? Or a "wind" dragon, who makes kites, wanted to fish or something? I think that could be p interesting honestly ^^ I think I'd want to try the Reignited Trilogy, just because of how GOOD Spyro looks in that game and just EVERYTHING is SO pretty!! I do have the systems for Spyro, it's just that I think that I'd rather wait for Spyro to be sexily reimagined in HD :D
  2. For my money, I vote Grima was super destructive - which would explain why so many things (geography, kingdoms, history even as people who knew what had happened and history books get destroyed in the fell flames, etc.) are changed or outright gone. Also probably why most people don't seem to know the origins of the Fire Emblem, Medeus, or any of that - because Grima burnt it all to the ground when he first rose, and when he was sealed, people were too concerned with coming back from the ashes and rebuilding to initially concern themselves with why the kingdoms fell. The First Exalt just sort of came down, slew the dragon, and offered an easy out by becoming, well, the First Exalt and offering structure and protection. Also, I personally love a headcannon in that the First Exalt actually erased the existence of Grima as best he could, making sure no one knew of this horrible creature and tried to revive/didn't want this to forever scar the people. Then, when Chrom's father found out about Grima (i.e. his religious crusade on Plegia that ended up getting him killed), he did everything he could to make sure Grima never rose again (also hence, his super violent reaction). Most of this is just my personal headcanon, but I think it would be cool ^^ Also, I don't remember where, but apparently it was said Nowi came to the Ylissian continent because she "noticed the movements of the Grimleal", so what if she had a slight history of them?...What if she knew Chrom's father personally?
  3. :3c Thaaaaaat's really weird because they keep offering up their time? But yeah, w/e I guess o -o" You mean like being able to start topics? I originally had the number you had to hit to start them, but it got edited so that spam bots didn't start flooding the site ^^" You into Pokemon? :D There is no such thing as liking Fire Emblem too much, young, foolish child. That's healthy! :DDD
  4. (Just in case anyone hasn't played Echoes/Gaiden yet...Even though the twist is super obvious in-game) But by the by, I actually love JelloApocalypse's stuff - all of his "So this is basically", "Welcome to _", and "_ in ten words or less" are all really funny imo ^^ Although I think this one was one of his best yet :D
  5. That's it - discussion over I literally cannot say anymore - this is just perfect This whole post is just??? ...On the topic of Nowi and her possibly being around in the time of Grima...I wonder if she ever met him? Like, it was sort of implied by him needing "another" person of a "certain bloodline", being struck down by Alm, and his body being present in the game before rising, it makes me wonder if a very young Nowi, possibly lost and looking for her (unbeknownst to her at that time) dead parents, and she met Grima's Vessel, maybe even growing attached to him while not knowing that, thousands of years later, she would have to kill him? Idk food for thought I guess - shrugs - But I do like the idea of Nowi just being...Cool with eh clothes - I mean, as much as she would prefer being treated as less an adult and more like the light-hearted child she acts like (looking at her S-support with Virion), she makes points to Gregor, Frederick, and, as you showed in the video, Tiki how old she really is - and she accepts both that, and that people view her as a child? She's just...super chill and I love her.
  6. Mmm, they were my OG pair, before getting Henry with Cherche, and Tharja with Ricken (fight me, I barely had anyone left to get her with), but like, as fun as the relationship is, I'm wondering if it's really healthy for either of them?? Because like, they both have issues, and is it a good idea to compound those issues together by hooking up? Like You get Tharja's anti-social behavior and her semi-sadistic habits mixed with an enabler who is V E R Y sadistic
  7. WELP Guess who's been busy and dying time to die trying to say hello to everybody x.x Nice to meet you too! And don't say you aren't a real fan of Fire Emblem because you've only play two main series games! I've only played three (counting Fates as one game), so I'm in a similar situation, but not having experience with the older games dones't make you any more or less of a fan! If Awakening and Fates are considered Fire Emblem games, and you liked them, then you're a fan! Oh don't sweat it! Welcome! What kind of in-game data are you talking about? (And honestly same - I'd love to get around to actually playing stuff like FE6, 7, and 8 ^^") ...Tabletop Fire Emblem game? NOW you're speaking my language That is literally one of the coolest things I've heard - Welcome! Welcome indeed :D Heyo and, well, don't be shy! People around here tend to be pretty nice and talkative, so don't hold back! ^^ It's nice to talk to you too! :D Pffffft just because you play Normal!Awakening doesn't make you a baby - don't listen to those kinds of comments ^^" (Especially if you've played the older games ^^""") And what do you mean, building your characters? Stat-wise, or in a writing sense? (The latter like...for fanfiction ^^" But I can help with both of those! ...I didn't think Heroes was a game you could "finish" per say, but regardless Heyo and welcome!! What do you think of Awakening so far? MILADY (someone stop me) Yeah it can be a bit - what are you having trouble with specifically? The mods are there to generally help, but I can try to answer any questions you have? ^^" (No one can help you now) Oh? What other RPGs? Hey ho! What kind of game calculations are you talking about? Hey, I like Awakening too! Even if it's a bit rough around the edges sometimes, the writing is so earnest to me (if that makes sense), and the game is just fun :D I look forward to that too! Ooh, the GBA games look fun ^^ Hello and welcome! I hope you enjoy it here! (I will - Lucina, Nowi, Cynthia, Cherche, E S T IS BEST And also yes eff those ambush spawns [I thought only Awakening suffered badly from them?]) Hey, I lurked really hard on these forums too before making an account - I can't blame you for doing so ^^" I mean, who isn't excited? What's your hopes for the FE Switch game? (I mean, besides it having a good story, plot, gameplay, etc. - we all want that I'm pretty sure ^^) Fan-project? Ooooooooooooooooooooh what about?? What sort of needs? *eyebrow wiggling intensifies* AND WITH THAT I'M DONE *dies*
  8. You can just delete them? Like other text? Nice to meet you, @JustASin! Heyo and welcome! Man, I wish I could get around to playing the Tellius and Elibe games ^^" A Corrin only run of BR sounds fun (and one of the few ways to make BR challenging :I) - what are you planning to reclass Corrin into, besides Hoshidian Noble (Since you're probably going to max that out before the end of the game)? @illegal knight Regarded :33 Welcome! I haven't really perused the entire length of the forum to be completely fair, but I've found some pretty friendly people around, so don't worry about that! @Scepers It's nice to have a chance to talk with you too!! :D
  9. That deserves a great answer?
  10. *Just checked out the F4 Thread* ...Huh, it looks fun, but I don't know much about FE4 besides the Deirdre and Arvis situation (*nervous sweating*), the royal barbecue, holy blooded people, Julius is literally the worst person, and Naga has a bible now (oh and so does, I think, evil Naga, Loptyr). Idk I'm just guessing - I am interested in the game though, so I'm trying not to spoil it beyond that ^^""""""
  11. FFTF? I'm a bit new, so I'm not sure what that means? O-O" Oh, you go to medical school? That's cool ^^
  12. That's a possibility - I'd love to see a story that world builds dragons as being malleable and affected by their surroundings as they grow (maybe they're attuned to the physical characteristic of their surroundings?...I'd love to see an urban dragon ngl). I mean like, very rapid evolution as the dragon ages, rather than the gradual, more normal kind. I think that would be cool ^^ Do the dragons of OG trilogy of Spyro develop magic based on their jobs? Like, as a learnable practice? To help them do better at their jobs? Otherwise though, that's actually pretty cool, and makes the dragons as they're like actual citizens, as each dragon of each area has a primary craft they do and pass down to the next generation (I think - I never played a single Spyro game, no matter how good the OG Spyro games look ;-;).
  13. @grinus I liked (SOME) of Conquest's maps - stuff like chapter...10? The one where you have to defend the town and where you get Camilla, at least, were pretty good (frustrating, but in a good way). But yeah the game mechanics and especially the writing were definitely sore spots :/ And by "system" I meant a weight system, not a weapon triangle. Hey welcome!! It's great to meet you! :D I'm totally up for talking about FE! I started with Awakening, mostly because when I saw Corrin released as DLC, I got interesting in Fire Emblem as a franchise, but since Fates wasn't out yet, I borrowed Awakening and loved it. Got Awakening myself, and then got my hands on Fates, had some mixed feelings with it (if you couldn't tell above ^^""""""), then got Valentia, and love it too!!! I got into Heroes late, but I still managed to get some good pulls! My current, and favorite team is (Horse) Chrom, (Brave) Lucina, (Grima) F!Robin, and M!Morgan ^u^ Also don't worry about typos or anything like that! Oh, can I see your drawings? Can you link me or something? Heyo!! How's it going? ^^
  14. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ku34c1SKxIs Best clip I could find to illustrate my point (picked a clip to show of the voice of the character, since the art style is heavily stylized). This is Maruruk, a character from Made In Abyss. This is a boy.
  15. Well, by warmer environment, I meant like...Desert, or Tropical islands more than volcano, and I rephrased the whole "fire dragons tearing up their environment" line to make more sense - I meant like being able to set things on f i r e to fight and hunt. I was also going with the idea of more...the way Fire Emblem depicts dragons, where they would be able to make impassable walls of flame with the forests to kill their enemies. But for more traditional dragons, they could use it to show of their power and scare of competitors. I've read Wings of Fire - I liked the depictions of the characters, but I thought the ending of the second series gave a very mixed message to me; but more on topic, I DO like their depictions of the dragon species. The closes they have to "Fire Dragons", I feel, are the Skywings, but they can also double as "Wind Dragons" because of their natural affinity for the sky and mountains. Fire-Breathing Desert dragons (like Sandwings) make sense to me since their flames would actually be effective, since the desert, A: gets REALLY cold at night, and would be effective towards keeping ones self warm, and B: wouldn't be made negligible by the fact the environment would literally be spitting fire frequently, according to most fiction that depict Fire Dragons in volcanoes. Icewings feel very well thought out, since their claws are designed to grip slippery ground and they have camouflage...actually, now that I think about it, a Dragon with low body temperate might actually do good in a Glacial habitat (not necessarily something like, Boral Woods, but still) - they wouldn't melt the ice and slip. If the dragon in question could control their body heat, that could be really useful - stay cold when traveling on ground, get warm and blast fire when it needs to melt something and, say, start ice fishing. (So long as it had some form of anti-freeze in it's body to keep it's body from fulling freezing when lowering it's body temperature, or it was like one of these lovely fish who require oxygen to be pumped into them due to their lack of red blood cells [this is assuming this is an Icy Sea Dragon]) So I can see Icewings (And some Icy dragons) working in Icy areas, so long as they had some form of blubber...however, I still don't see Ice Breath being that useful in an arctic environment - unless you want to create more ice to cross water, but even then the dragon probably wouldn't be able to breathe enough to create reliable crossing without tiring itself out. (Idk though) The Mudwings felt the most grounded (ha) to me, with them lacking an internal combustion system, and needing to be warm. Actually, I like all of the dragons, save for maybe Nightwings, as I thought the reveal of them actually having powers was a bit...like, I like weird powers in fiction, but I also like the idea of the fear mongering and spreading rumors that caused them to be feared, rather then them actually having powers. Idk, I like Moonwatcher, Winter, Kinkajou, Darkstalker, Peril (although I think they played up her exuberance too much when it was in her perspective...I liked her better in the first series), but I felt like the second series was just sort of...It dropped the ball for me is all I'm saying, though I do like the world building quite a bit. Seawings using bioluminescence to communicate underwater, the Rainwings having one of the most terrifying biological weapons of all the dragons, and also just Rainforest dragons in general. I can go about my issues over WoF and Warrior cats (which Tui used to/still writes for, I'm not sure) on some other forum, but either way, I digress ^^" Never played Spyro, so I wouldnt't know...Idk the gist of this is that, unless the dragons are directly taking the element from their environment like the Archer Fish (like, say a dragon maybe "absorbing" the heat to be able to shoot fire kind of thing), instead generating it like an electric eel (I keep referencing fish and I don't know why), I just think they would be more useful in an environment that wouldn't be used to that element. Deserts, tropical or humid habitats, those kind of things for an Ice dragon; and frigid, but not icy wastelands, Boral woods, snowy mountain tops, those would be the kind of places for a Fire dragon, imo.
  16. It can ALWAYS get worse :3 This feels a lot more fair than just Fates' "you get a very hard to recover from debuff for existing with these weapons" system, and I can see why come games may have dropped the system (like Awakening and Valentia...although I don't know if Gaiden even had a system like this to begin with), but it does seem like an interesting mechanic to play around with ^^ And yes it does, thank you ^u^
  17. So mostly just messing around until something sticks? I can respect that, honestly ^^ Yeah, it's almost as if we're a bunch of anti-social nerds trying to socialize with each other using an anime-aesthetically driven tactical roleplaying game as a means to that end. almost @Scoot But it was removed in older games, and replaces with just Speed as the determining factor? ...Also what's Constitution? I'm so sorry I'm trying v hard to understand the older games because they look so cool ;-; It feels like Fates was trying to replicate this weight system with the weapon debuffs? That every time you try to use a Silver Weapon, it would, say, debuff you -5 STR and SPD. ...I always had a problem with the system because you recover from debuffs very slowly (recover one point of whatever stat every turn, regardless of how much you loss from the debuff x.x)
  18. Yeah know I'm even less sure if I want to add in Mage/Demon Dragons, since I came up with a "Breath Advantage Table" if you will, and I think it's pretty okay? Idk what would happen if I threw in more than five types of dragons into it...But I think I could make it work, if Mage dragons end up fitting but idk honestly ^^" Yeah it's not made super obvious? But the reason is so spam bots don't flood the site - a completely understandable reason, to me at least. Either way, welcome!! I'm not what you would call...a veteran of this site either (I'm fairly new too), but I hope we get along ^^ I'm looking to hack FE 8 too! What are you trying to hack it into? @Scoot (would have quoted you, but you responded on the page before and I didn't want to deal with the headache of trying to quote you over here, so ^^") FE7, 6, and 8 - those are games I really want to play. Although, as someone who has only played FE13 and above, can I ask you a question? ...What the heck is weight in the context of Fire Emblem, and what does it do?
  19. Np!! Hope you really enjoy your stay! So you like Blazing Sword, huh? Never played it - how is it?
  20. No problem! Glad to have you in this forum! ^^ Yeah of course! :D Because DRAGONS! And honestly no? Because Mage and Demon Dragons sort of get lumped together, and I can't decide if they should be their own race, corrupted dragons, or something else along those lines...*shrug*
  21. So A common (and fairly understandable) trend I've noticed among fantasy incorporating dragons tend to live in habitats that correspond with their associated element - Ice Dragons live in Tundras and Polar Icecaps, Fire Dragons live in or outside of volcanoes or on mountains, Lightning dragons either live in the desert (for some reason) or open fields, etc. Now, I'm not talking about like, dragons that, say, live in the water primarily, and may or may not have a water-based elemental affinity - it's basically a fish dragon, so I'm fine with that. I'm more talking about a creature that has the ability to warm itself very easily living in a volcano, or vice versa, where a dragon that is very good at cooling it's surroundings down living in sub-zero temperatures; the latter being a bit more frustrating to me than the former. While I'm not saying don't make dragons that live in the tundra not white to blend in with their surroundings, I'm just saying that wouldn't it be more useful for a creature like a dragon to have an internal combustion for keeping itself warm in harsh blizzards or melting holes in the ice caps to catch prey or something? Or an Ice Dragon living in a blistering environment and taking advantage of the fact that it can freeze things on a whim and cool them down - like idk a very moist, humid area with lots of water to make the most of it's abilities? Because how much more damage could a Fire Dragon do to a landscape already scorched by fire? And how useful would Ice Breath be in a land covered in ice? Just because you have mastery over a thing doesn't mean you have immunity to it (snakes can poison themselves - so I think it stands to reason that dragons could burn themselves too, in the face of the argument that they'd probably be resistant to the cold/heat or otherwise) But what do other people think? Do you think the elemental correlation of Fire dragons living in fiery places makes sense? Or would you prefer to see them living in Boreal Woods and using their wooded environment to their advantage? EDIT: Rephrased something that was kind of confusing ^^"
  22. I love these!! Faye looking different from her Valentia version makes sense, looking at characters like Clair, but I love the way Berkut and Conrad came out in particular!! ^^
  23. While I haven't played PoR or RD, I can say it sounds no more strange than a random villager suddenly being given the authority to spearhead an entire revolutionary militia (*glares at Clive and everything he stands for*).
  24. No idea about anything that happens in Tearring - haven't gotten around to playing it ^^" I thought Ice and Fire in the original were good against each other? I know that, but I think it would be overpowered if every unit could fly - Ice Dragons are rarely depicted with wings, usually even being partly sea or water dragons, and Fire Dragons are sort of half and half. I just didn't want every unit to have the power to fly at the touch of a button. What kind of ideas? Wow people have Fates editors?? That's actually really cool o-o
  25. Oh of course! I was thinking of using the SD version of Manketes, where you turn into a dragon separate from your attack, and transforming would take up an action, like dancing or rallying - most enemies would be able to transform, BUT that doesn't mean they can't use other weapons. Generally, fully transformed Manaketes would be good at dealing damage against untransformed enemies (attacking with magic always instead of physically, save for maybe Earth Dragons, if I include them), however, Manaketes in this version would be more favoring Resistance rather than Defense generally, so while they'd be able to tank magic, physical weapons, like swords and the like, would deal pretty decent damage against them. Additionally, while Manaketes can fight other Manaketes without too much problem, Fire and Ice breath would deal extra damage against each other, and (if I use them I'm still not sure) Earth and Wind(or Flying) dragons would be resistance to each other; while Divine Dragons (you probably only get one in the game as a playable character) would be able to deal bonus damage to all types - including themselves. Also, effective against dragon bonuses would only apply when the manakete is transformed. Obviously different characters would have different strengths as transformed dragons, but the idea is to encourage switching between the forms. No idea what I'm doing for mounted units - obviously no Wyvern Riders, but I was thinking of maybe throwing in Griffons as the replacement? Mostly I say this because most dragons probably wouldn't have wings when transformed, with only Wind (Flying) and Divine dragons being able to fly. Also if I do throw in mounts, the manaketes would automatically dismount when they transform into a dragon, and remount when they go back to a humanoid form. The main tribes I know I'm adding are Ice, Fire, and Divine, with all of the tribes being kind of independent, with their own leaders, but with Divine being really in charge (like, the leaders of their tribes being governors, but the Divine Dragon council being king). And when the Divine Dragon council suddenly collapses, with the royalty completely disappearing, the other tribes are thrown into chaos. It's kind of bare bones at the moment, but I was thinking of setting in the the perspective of a young Ice Dragon princess, at least, and her trying to preserve the life she once knew through violent bloodshed; by killing those who would threaten her homeland.
