  1. You'd be able to cover the map faster, so the recruitment conditions for Karel rather than Harken might be a bit easier. I can even see Harken requiring a bit of slowing down and dawdling to recruit, but it'd take playtesting to know for sure.
  2. So, I've been using Ohana3DS to check out different weapon models, just to see them up close. I discovered something I haven't seen anybody talk about - there's models for the last two Chinese Zodiac scrolls, Dog and Boar (or Pig, but the model seems to have tusks...). The files are wep_mg037B.bch.lz and wep_mg038B.bch.lz and they look pretty complete. Attached are the weapon textures (never mind the weird transparency, apparently the game uses that to represent specularity). But what's a spell without animations, right? Well, in the effect folder I found them - Crs_12_Inu.arc.lz and Crs_13_Inoshishi.arc.lz . I found a tool to extract them, and they look about as complete as other spell models, so they might just work. I also discovered models of the Mire and Grima's Truth tomes, still in Awakening style. I imagine they were going to be overwritten with more dark spells, but that was cut. ...And that's where I hit a roadblock. I'm not really into ROM hacking so I have no idea how to get these lost spells available to work. I'm guessing they don't have stats, so somebody would have to make them up and insert them or something. I hope this sparks the interest of somebody more competent than me, I'd love to see if these unused animations can be re-implemented.
  3. This actually works fine, because Nino can't die, just retreat,. This is true for most characters who are important to FE6's plot, though I think Rebecca gets permadeath despite being Wolt's mother.
  4. I'm still inclined to think that Trump is an impulsive idiot, but he's rich enough that his various...let's call them consiglieres, because he really does act like a mafioso a lot of the time...can craft these schemes and do the dirty work. We've seen it with Cohen, with his campaign, and even with Giuliani (though his competence is dubious, especially after he's had a few...) Trump has what I've seen George R. R. Martin call a "low cunning," but he's ultimately a Joffrey surrounded by Varyses and Littlefingers.
  5. Project Naga has a really nice translation. I know the translator isn't 100% satisfied with it and has some revisions planned, but it definitely has more care put into accuracy and characterization. The Gharnef patch is more or less a continuation of a series of patches that started somewhere around 2000, but the translation has a lot of liberties and oddities and most of the editors in the last decade, who didn't actually speak Japanese, left the script as-is with a few changes. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the work everybody put into the J2E/Twilkitri/Gharnef patch, it let an entire generation of FE fans enjoy Genealogy, but at this point I think its only value is historical.
  6. Graphically I can live with what we got, but gameplay-wise I feel that even though Radiant Dawn is possibly the biggest FE game, it actually needs some expansion to give the non-Ike factions more room to level up. Plus some proper supports to flesh out the new cast.
  7. https://www.imore.com/how-fix-controller-drift-your-joy-cons I have some drift too, try this. I've had to do it a few times, but it absolutely helps. I am a bit miffed that Nintendo, formerly known for their insanely resilient products, has allowed this to happen because the inside of the analogue stick is covered by a rather flimsy rubber ring. I don't know what possible advantage the design brings that could balance out the bloody nuisance of it, especially for people with me who live in a house with ambient cat hair.
  8. I read the title as "Walhart". I was extremely confused.
  9. The Dragon's Gate doesn't lead to Arcadia, that's the village in Nabata. It leads to an unnamed realm where there's some humans. It could be Fateslandia if the Elibean dragons migrate there post-Fates, but the thriving dragon civilization Nils describes doesn't mesh well with Fates' backstory, in which there seem to be twelve and only twelve dragons of note throughout the land. I tend to favor the Elibean dragons settling in an otherwise unexplored world, but if it is somewhere we've seen in other games I'd say that the best fit is prehistoric Archanea.
  10. Dismounting sucks a lot, one obvious solution (as mentioned) is removing the weapon lock. I think Radiant Dawn may have solved the problem, though - giving a movement penalty to mounted units. Maybe also disable canto indoors and make it impossible to fly over indoor walls. Of course, this would come at a cost - re-working maps so that the enemy also has mounted/flying units indoors.
  11. I look at it as inheriting a family business - that's pretty normal in our world, and in a setting where lineage is everything (except for the various Laguz tribes with meritocracy) it makes sense. Ike had good advice and grew as a leader, but what sold it for me was having two members leave for a time. Most of the time in FE everybody falls over themselves to follow the lordling in question, so having a few seasoned warriors decide that being employed by a teenager wasn't in their best interest was refreshingly realistic.
  12. I...don't think he actually is? He and Gerik go back a ways, but in their support Gerik specifically says "Imagine! You and me fighting together. Life's full of surprises, isn't it?" I don't think he's part of the mercenaries, just an ally.
  13. I pronounce it "Throatwarbler Mangrove", but Doe-lur is probably what's intended. I feel like Shadow Dragon (especially the US version) was the extreme of localized FE's "make it sound exotic" tendency.
  14. Just gonna mention that the recipe for Grima is more or less how the alchemist Paracelsus described the creation of a homunculus, less the dragon's blood. This also leaves no doubt as to which human fluid was used.
  15. I don't know if there's any official word. I think that Rath and Lyn's paired ending, which states that they returned to Sacae and had a daughter pretty strongly implies that it's Sue.
