  1. Hmm, you're quite correct, yes! Runan might have some minor blood, there's no way to be sure. Holmes is definitely a commoner, though. Quite interesting. Oh, forgot to chime in about this bit! I think it’s Tatus who mentions in an offhand comment that Runan has “only a maternal connection to the royal family,” so presumably his mother was a minor princess or something. So there’s Carluon Hero #1. Tia is of course the Earth Shaman and King Grauss’s great-granddaughter (through her mother), which makes her Carluon Hero #2. Sennet is both Canaanite royalty and Sage Eisenbach’s grandson (not to mention that his sister is the Wind Shaman), so he’s easily Carluon Hero #3. And here’s the kicker—since Holmes is Liza’s daughter, he’s Sage Octavus’s grandson (and thus the first cousin of Renee, Rishel & Mariel, and the Pegasus sisters) giving him the status of Carluon Hero #4. Freakin’ family trees. It turns out Richard is the only of the “new 8 heroes” to have no established connection to Carluon, which may explain why he didn’t use the Bhaumastra against Guenchaos. As punishment for your hubris, Berwick will now be delayed until the after release of FE19. P.S./Edit: I had a bit of a grin seeing the "Mayor Villains" section tierlist... maybe the Mayor of Ocus, slimy as he is, should be included as well. (Definitely not a typo from villanos mayores, no sir!)
  2. Man, what a wild ride. Would you believe that I wasn't able to bring myself to play TRS for years after redoing the script? It was so jarring to play through it, wanting to change and re-word every little thing again. I still hate the first line of Chapter 1. "Eugen, do you believe that the kingdom of Wellt will be sympathetic to our cause?" I'd see it every single time I recompiled the game to test menus and such, since I was stupid and didn't get a save to load. Fortunately, the weirdness has worn off after a couple years, though Let's Plays like this have still been the main way that I've enjoyed the story since then--and I've been thrilled to have been able to do so again. Boy, I really started to get lazy/tired in some of these epilogue scenes, didn't I? I remember the nights sitting on my couch and editing those, thinking, "Damn it, Kaga, when is this going to end?!" I was really pushing myself to get it done so I could relax (and finish Zero Escape 3, as I recall). Today, my coworkers were a bit confused when I started chuckling uncontrollably at my desk at Enteh's "I do" response to Runan. I look forward to your future LPing (Let's Play-ing? Let's Be Playing? Let's-ing Play?) endeavors, and I'll try to get Berwick in everyone's hands as soon as life lets me. :)
  3. Thank goodness things worked out in the end with posting! My condolences for the hoops you had to jump through to get it working! With a retrospective view on the whole story of TRS, I feel like Zieg is the main core that I always liked best. Which is funny, since he was actually a pretty late addition to the story! He's not present at all, to my knowledge, in the demo versions. Imagining the story without his full subplot just seems sad. What an inferior game that would be! As a tribute to Zieg, I shall share one of the few good pieces of fan art I've found of him: The names of the four holy swords were a bit of an issue for me, since I was on the fence for a long time on what to call them. As @Interdimensional Observer mentioned on the last page, the Japanese names all start with 聖剣 seiken "holy sword" followed by Reeve, Salia, Leda, or Canaan. (Naturally, this means that the sword Seiken Reeve was probably named after the girl, country, river, and/or word for "compassion" in Jugudi.) Wanting to spice the names up, I looked for mythological theme naming to call them, and when Western mythology didn't give me any options I liked, I turned to the Indian epics and Vedas, which have lots of gods and weapons. From there, I picked the four weapons seeming most closely related to the elements: Agnēyāstra "fire weapon," Bhaumāstra "earth weapon," Vāyavyāstra "air weapon" and Varuṇāstra "ocean weapon." Never mind that astra often signifies a ranged weapon like a javelin, arrow, or magic spell. If you look on the FE Wikia, I wrote little descriptions of each weapon's mythological role on their respective pages.
  4. Fun fact, the second portrait was originally Carla's portrait before she was given her current one. Personally, I think the this one's lot more fitting, given that she looks like an empress. Plus, her final one looks a bit too young to be 34 years old. The first guy's name is Sollo (ソロ). He was part of a beta versus mode team representing Erial. The other portraits you have here are completely unused in all versions, to my knowledge.
  5. Guten tag, meine Freunde! Wie geht es euch allen? Ich bin—I mean, uh... hello! We're now up to Chapter 11! Yippee! Here's the new patch.
  6. Hello! This is just a guess, but I think the problem might be a missing path to the output file. Try copy-pasting the path of the source file and typing a new filename from there, like in the attached image. If that doesn't fix anything, send me a PM, and I'll help you sort it out.
  7. The entirety of Holmes's route is just a fever dream after he had one too many pints of mead. That explains why everyone thinks he's a hero and why nothing makes sense.
  8. I’m not aware of any differences besides some names of files. Still, could be some important differences. I don’t have internet on my laptop at this exact moment, so I can’t copy the whole hash over, but for the unpatched ROM: the SHA-256 starts with 77a280686, and the MD5 starts with a6d226e51.
  9. Aha! They called me crazy, but I knew Hardin was Big Boss all along! Also, I spent much more time than was healthy trying to decipher what Derrick was saying in your dots there. My best guess was “And there really are,” but that doesn’t seem to fit that well. Knowing me, I’m probably crazy, and you didn’t actually mean any secret message. (In case people couldn’t tell—in the translation, I made up actual lines for each of Derrick’s text boxes and just replaced all the letters with periods... though deciphering it must be a nightmare, since ellipses and periods are also still periods.)
  10. Hello everyone! After a bit shorter of a gap than usual, I've come once again to release a new update (Version 37), this time with all of Chapter 10! You can download it here.
  11. @Saint Rubenio, throughout this LP, you’ve opened my eyes to the glory that is Ahab. When I retranslated the game, I didn’t really give him much thought—all my focus during the Salia Arc was on making Zechariah’s slightly less idiotic. Man, he’s even got posthumous character development... Oh boy, I do love me some glitches! I have no idea what is going to happen now that you’ve split them into different parties, but I look forward to the results. My money’s on the clone vanishing or teleporting back into the original’s party. Okay, so here are the rules about Krishna, assuming I remember things properly. I’ll go over everything so all the readers can be on the same page: 1. Though they look identical, there is indeed an “original” and a “clone,” as Ruben has surmised. 2. If you do something to the clone’s inventory or stats (gain experience, swap items, etc.), the original and its stats/items will be unaffected. 3. If you do anything like that to the original, however, the clone will be overwritten with the new status of the original. (I’m going to call this “re-sync”ing the clone.) To check which one is which, trade an item to one of them, then check the other. If the item appears on both, you gave it to the original. If it stays just on the one, you gave it to the clone. So, to dupe items, you give something to the original, then trade it off the clone. Voila! You now have two of the item. Re-sync the clone, and you can repeat as desired. (You can even abuse this to teleport-clone items all the way across the map, iirc.) Not that you’d want to, but you can also do the reverse—delete items permanently! Give them to the clone, then re-sync the clone. Congratulations, you just deleted a key item and soft-locked the game. Remember, with great power comes great current squared times resistance.
  12. I don’t know if you’d necessarily want to do it for this LP, but I think you might’ve done all the necessary steps to perform the Krishna Duplication Glitch. ...... ...Oh boy, two useless units!
  13. Garo, Arkis, Kreiss, and Krishna all get new titles upon learning certain skills. (Lethality, Lethality, Vantage, and Draco, respectively.) Plum, Lyria, Kate, Enteh, Mel, Shigen, and Raffin (the 1st time) all get new titles through events or story progression. The rest of the title changes happen during promotion, though not every character gets a new title.
  14. Bit of info about "Stealth Hunter" -- the Japanese name is ハイドハンター Haido Hantaa, which seems to be "Hide Hunter." (For what it's worth, there's also ハイドナイト Haido Naito "Hide Knight" unused in the game.) No clue if the first word was supposed to be "hide" as in "hidden" or as in "animal hide," so I went with the first and made it clearer as Stealth Hunter. Earlier ideas included Captain, though now that people mention it, Admiral would've been good, too.
  15. Thank you very much! Shouzou Kaga certainly poured his heart and soul into these games, so it's my pleasure to do what I can to spread them to the English-speaking audience. I'm always surprised how many people see my efforts on niche games like this, and I'm very glad to hear that you enjoy the work I've put into the translation! Best wishes to you!
