  1. So it's been a while since I've played Radiant Dawn Hard mode and seeing the thread about the rate the units kind of gave me the urge to play it so anyone want to join me in these masochistic adventures? Rules: Note: I'm fully open to suggestions on these rules so feel free to make any if you have them, I've bolded the stuff I've changed. Drafting:1. This draft is for 6 players.2. Micaiah, Laura, Sothe, JIll, Rafiel, The Black Knight, Leanne, Geoffrey, Ike, Titania, Reyson and Lehran are free for all to use.3. The drafting order is NOT reversed for the last round of picks.4. Haar is banned from drafting.5. The game will be played on Hard Mode.Rules:1. Undrafted units may recruit characters, Rescue and Shove/Smite undrafted characters and NPCs, trade, Escape/Arrive, and transfer items/skills between teams.2. Undrafted units may not do anything not listed above, including but not limited to meatshielding, building Supports, opening Doors and Chests, finding hidden items, and giving Blood Tide/Night Tide/White Pool bonuses. I'm thinking about changing it so undrafted units can find Items seeing as that's how it is in all the other games but I understand that RD has items in almost every level unlike other games where it's usually one map so see what people think.3. Allied and Other units may do as they please without penalty.4. Defend chapters count the last played Player Phase for turns if the timer is waited out.Penalties:1. Undrafted units have a 4 turn penalty, per unit per chapter (1-6 counts as 2 chapters, and 4-E counts as 5 chapters).Exceptions:1. One of Edward or Nolan is free for each of 1-P, 1-1, 1-2 and 1-3.2. Volug is free for 1-5.3. Elincia, Marcia and Nealuchi are free for 2-P4. Nephenee and Brom are free for 2-1.5. One undrafted, non-Lucia unit is free for 2-2.6. One undrafted, 7 move unit is free for 3-1.7. One undrafted, 6 move unit is free for 3-3. Explanations for Rule changes: 6 players because firstly 7 is hard to get and it results in 60 draftable units so everyone gets an extra scrub to help with Shoving or something. Free Jill and Titania, these units are clearly superior to any other choice I think and especially having Titania be a draftable unit would be way too good for whoever gets her, less so for Jill as she starts off weaker but still clearly a dominant unit. However I think that making Titania free permanently would lead to everyone having every Part three map basically just be Titania W+M1'd the enemy with Hand Axes while scrubs just milled about. Therefore the idea I thought of was to give her a quota of deployment slots and you can choose which maps to deploy her on, she has 13 maps before end game so I think 7 should be a good number. Jill has 8/11 maps depending on whether you recruit her over to the GM's so I'm thinking 7 maps for her would seem about right seeing as she has to actually get going first unlike Titania. Could possibly make Jill permanently free as well if everyone feels the DB need the help. Finally free Laura is just to make it so that the number of draftable units is divisible by 6 and she seemed like the most obvious choice as a free unit to me. Edward or Nolan free for 1-3 as well seems like a pretty obvious choice as that map is pretty notorious on Hard Mode I think so having them until you get to the Base seems fair. Units remaining: Teams: Zihark72: Ilyana, Mia, Aran, Naesala, Astrid, Lethe, Rhys, Volke, Stefan, Oliver. Shimmerfang: Nolan, Gatrie, Callil, Mist, Giffca, Makalov, Rolf, Bastian, Kurthnaga, Pelleas. DarthR0xas: Nephenee, Boyd, Zihark, Tibarn, Kieran, Tormod, Caineghis, Muarim, Gareth, Renning. Joe Cool: Elincia, Shinon, Nailah, Janaff, Ranulf, Leonardo, Meg, Danved, Ena, Fiona. Junkhead: Edward, Volug, Marcia, Heather, Ulki, Sigrun, Tauroneo, Skrimir, Vika, Nasir. Sturm: Oscar, Soren, Tanith, Brom, Nealuchi, Sanaki, Mordecai, Lucia, Kyza, Lyre.
  2. This thread is a concept. I will introduce each character of this game and explain how to use them properly in normal and hard mode. The difficulty spike is quite big for some units which change their usefulness and role. This is not going to be a rating thread although of course one character is more usable than the other one, but this thread shall serve for new people to this game and people who like certain characters, but could not figure out and exploit the best possible of them. Some characters who are more arguable like Edward or Fiona will get more explanation than the OP units like Tibarn and Caineghis who have a simple as clear role and purpose. The order of the unit's presentation will be in the chronological order of appearance time, so I will start with Micaiah and end with Lehran.
  3. [Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn - Reverse Recruitment] Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn has always been my favorite game from a gameplay perspective. And since I didn't really mind the faults/inconsistencies with the story, it is a game I keep coming back to. However, the balancing of the game is quite horrendous, and at some point I'll want to start a balancing patch. RD is not the most hacked game and since there's not as much in the form of resources compared to FE7 etc, I thought I'd start this by learning the hex editting one step at a time. So that's where this patch comes in. The premise of the Reverse Recruitment is rather simple, and also fun for the drafting community, since there probably hasn't been one of those yet. It's also a great way for me to learn the inner workings of RD one step at a time, since you have to apply the same basic action to pretty much every character; swapping them with another. However, script dialogue, base convo's that recruit people, talk conversations te get people to join and other events all pop up sooner or later and complicate the process of inserting a new character. It's always one thing at a time though, which gives me a great way of easing myself into the depths of the game's code. And thus we arrive at this topic, where I'll be posting updates sporadically since I have a job and busy life (and the weather is just too good to stay inside atm). I would really appreciate it if people would give me feedback on what can be done better, point out bugs and tell if characters need buffs or nerfs. I hope you all enjoy, and thank you for playing! [Patches] Patch is up, you can download the patch file here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1FjMj8djNNnEeyOaSsVNAleL_bFv6muij Do note that the patch only goes up to 1-5, Volug is the last unit to have been changed. However, I highly encourage players to keep going, just to see if the promotions for characters like Renning and Volke line up and if in the end, they do reach their correct tier three classes with appropriate models. [How to patch] The patch is made through PPF-studio, which can easily be found through a quick duckduckgo search. The program needed (PPF-o-MATIC) is rather intuitive, the only thing you'll need besides the patch file is a RFEP file, which is the European Radiant Dawn ISO. [Discord] If you want to discuss the game on other platforms, a Discord link can be clicked here: https://discord.gg/EyPv9py [Excel character swap sheet] You can find the link with the character excel sheet below, you can also find some notes about the excel sheet below, which go into the though process of making the sheet. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1lOCAemlJgxrmXI2BeuSfuAnlZ9zptVF58qzuUwZ_etI/edit?usp=sharing [Notes] 1] Ok, so there are some things that had to happen to make this a workable Reverse Recruitment. Mostly because there are three herons in this game and if you at some point get two in the same army, the game turns into a one-turn curbstomp. To work around this you'll notice that sometimes units that join at the same time are in a different order than the "recruitment page" on the main site. For example, Nasir and Gareth join at the same time, so you could swap Leonardo with Gareth and Edward with Nasir or vice versa. This is important because it allows you to play with the order Leanne and Nealuchi are listed in. By putting Nealuchi first in the list and Leanne second, you almost match Leanne with Reyson. They barely swap places, being only one space apart. This makes for a simple last desicion regarding the last Heron Rafiel; he does not partake in the Reversal. Rafiel is the only regular unit that isn't swapped, which allows Leanne and Reyson to line up, thus having all three herons seperate at all times. 2] The Black Knight is not a unit that is allied for the entire game, so he also does not partake in the list and is regarded as a free unit as long as he is part of your army. 3] When you remove Rafiel and the Black Knight from the list, you are left with 71 playable characters. So unit number 36 does not switch places since that unit is smack dab in the middle. The units who is exactly in the middle is, in this case, Ike! Having Ike stay as the main character makes it a lot easier since this does not require me to alter seizing ability and things like godslaying skills. 4] The Light mage and Light Sage classes now promote into Chancellor, since Micaiah arrives in Tier 3. They all keep the chancellor model and as seen in the excel sheet Lehran has altered growths and promotion gains. 5] The worst unit in the game swaps with the best one, Lyre swaps with Haar. Which is rather amusing. 6] Elincia arrives later, so she has altered growths and bases, since she does not have a Tier two model and all falcoknights are already in use so I can't immediately throw her model over them. [FAQ] Q: "How exactly do I play this?" A: You'll need a working emulator (dolphin is recommended), a fresh FE10 (EU) ISO, and a program used to patch the file (to the ISO) I have provided. PFF-O-Matic works fine. Patch the ISO file using that program. Q: "What are you trying to accomplish with this hack?" A: Mostly this Hack is a challenge to myself. I have thought about impproving Radiant dawn for years and now I'm finally taking the steps to learn how to do that. Besides this, a Reverse Recruitment hack would be a nice new way to play the game for casual gamers, but also for drafters. This is possible with most Fire Emlem games at the moment, but not with the GC/Wii games. Q: "The game offers almost the exact same items as before, why do I get a Brave Sword when i need laguz items?!" A: Adjusting items to suit your new units is something that will be added. Currently units get some items that will benefit them directly, like laguz stones, but also some more indirect advantages. Expect the Cards to be valuable in the early stages of the game when you need to be able to attack without taking a counterattack. I welcome any and all feedback regarding items. I do not want to bombard the player with laguz stones, so things like shine barriers and pure waters are items i would like to play around with. Q: "What difficulty should I play?" A: Normal mode. Q: "Any general tips?" A: You will be getting only a few Olivi Grasses and Stones in the beginning of the game at the moment, but you will also be getting two blood tides, night tide and white tide, so positioning is key! Q: "I will be getting Royals in part one, this game will be a cakewalk!" A: I would not count on it, most laguz are balanced in such a way that while they may be strong and have high Hp, their defenses are lowered quite a bit. This also means growths are adjusted, which means BEXP might be more useful for them now, instead of just giving HP, Skill and Luck. High level early laguz hardly gain exp however, so be sure to not overly rely on them. Q: "You want to make a balance patch, but why would you, Dunal is already working on one!" A: "So? There are multiple Fe7 hacks, and even if I also wanted to wanted to make a Balance Patch, my ideas and thoughts about balance will differ from Dunal, so it'll might (if i ever get to make it) have similarities, it won't be the same.
  4. Since I will have my fifth year of membership in this forum on 19/03/01, I came up with the idea to do a little special by letting you vote a LP of a game / mode I have not done before. However since I am unable to do videos with my tablet I must take Screenshots with my phone. Hopefully it will work out. The voting will last till 28th February, so I can start on 1st March.
  5. Sorry if it's the wrong board to ask it, but could someone tell me the process/the needed programmes to edit a unit's joining level/base stats? I'm a complete layman when it comes to hacking so I would love some detailed explanations, thanks in advance!
  6. Hello, I'm doing a run of Path of Radiance at the moment and was planning to do Radiant Dawn after that. Since I know you can data transfer your stats I wanted to ask you if it'll make the game too easy to do so.. Considering I'll be playing on the highest difficulty level. I planned to have a really good Sothe on Path of Radiance, but if it makes Radiant Dawn too easy I think I'll just skip that, since Sothe stats transfer totally. Has anyone played hard mode FE10 with a uber Sothe ? Does it remove the challenge ? :/
  7. I've been looking into trying a 0% growths run of Radiant Dawn but I had a few questions for the community. 1: I understand generally how to burn rns and whatnot in FE10, what I'm not sure on is how one actually determines the numbers to begin with. I know there's software for a lot of the older games that reads off upcoming rns and allows players to burn through until they get something favorable. Is there anything like this for FE10 or is it just trial and error, loading a save if you don't get the outcome you want? 2: Setting 0% growths involve modding the game file. I'd rather not spend several hours sifting through my files and the internet to do this so if anyone can tell me where exactly in the game files this is done (or if there are any existing 0% growths roms out there) I'd greatly appreciate it!
  8. For me, one of the stranger idea introduced in Radiant Dawn was arcane cards. I felt there were poorly implemented in the game due to few non magical characters in the game having a high enough magic stat to use it properly. In addition to the 1-2 range, and low which made it difficult to use. If it were going to be in up coming Fire Emblem game, it can benefit hybrid classes the most. Perhaps it can have different properties such as debuffing, or lower movement?
  9. I don't know where I got it from, but I thought to read somewhere that Ashera only attacks units who attacked her auras. In my latest run she decided to attack Gareth although he never attacked her auras. Does granting support count as attack as well, or is my theory just as random as wrong?
  10. I've done sth. like this before, but only on normal mode. This time I'll do it the hard way, means hard mode. It will be a new experience for me since I Never ever have done such a challenge like this in hard mode. My self set rules: in endgame each weapon type has to be represented with the worst rated character from this tierlist Sothe, Micaiah, Ike, Herons, BK are free to use at anytime in part 1 everyone may be used before Ilyana joins (means till 1-2) one Laguz may be used in 1-8 anyone may be used in 2-P - 2-2 and in 2-E before the CK's join one other unit besides Astrid may be used in 2-3 and maybe 3-9 (not sure yet) in part 3 everyone may be used before Heather and Ilyana join healers / arch sages may use staves at any time but not fight undrafted units may do anything except for fighting with a weapon; Laguz may not even counterattack untransformed bexp. may be used for the drafted units at any time I won't care for turncount at all, even if might take > 1000 turns.
  11. So i started modifying FE10 - Radiant Dawn a few days ago. All i can do is change already existed skill of classes and characters to another skills, every time i try to add more skills ( adding more byte to FE10data.cms) the game crash. Is there any rules for adding more byte to game data that i may try ? I also want to learn how to add more enemy to chapter.
  12. This thread should serve as a little guide for all the people who are going to play FE10's hard mode for the first time. Credits go to Quintessence and RadiantDragon who supported me in this. 1. What are the exact differences between normal and hard mode? 2. Which units should get FE9 boosts in which stats? 3. Which Dawn Brigade characters should be used and how? 4. Supports 5. Skills 6. Which items should be bought and stolen? 7. Who shall get which items? 8. Strategies for endgame 9. Other things
  13. Hey everyone, I'm posting this thread for Illumina25, who is a new user and thus can't make threads. We've both tried to solve this problem with no luck for a few days, so I hope one of you can help him. Here is his problem in his own words: I have been hacking Radiant Dawn recently, and have understood editing weapon/unit stats and text in general. However I have been having trouble editing the animation for weapons in battle. My exact problem is that essentially I want to make Leonardo's bow into a spear. However, the weapon keeps the animation of the original weapon even if you switch it, i.e. changing Ragnell into an axe and giving it the Urvan icon, it still looks like Ragnell in battle, but has Ike's "axe" model on the map. I have tried a few things as follows: In FE10Data.cms, that file really only affects the stats of a weapon, I basically know what each pointer and byte does in the item stats, as explained in the FE10 hacking notes. The only thing that affects the model of the weapon in any way is the ID, the first 4 bytes of the weapon. For example, changing Ragnell's ID into Caladbolg's ID removes Ragnell from Ike's inventory and replaces Caladbolg in the convoy. Its name is still Ragnell, it's still Ike only, and everything else, however the weapon model in battle is Caladbolg. However, this replaces a weapon which I do not want to do. Since I figured that the Data file did not have to do with weapon animations, I went to FE10Battle.cms and looked there. I sort of have an idea of how this is broken down (as its not in the FE10 notes I believe), which I can post if necessary, but changing the pointers there did not really do anything. The only change that worked was essentially changing the EID pointer of a weapon, which changes the "hit" effect when hitting an enemy. Then I just decided to look through the rest of the game on WiiScrubber, and found toward the end files labelled under "xwp." This seemed to have every weapon in the game, including ones not used. I tried replacing Urvan with the Ragnell file to see if that would change the model, but instead just caused it to crash only when using it with animations on. In short, I've tried all I know and don't know what else to try. I feel like changing the model of a weapon in battle should be easy. I understand pointers/offsets/etc in HxD and understand how to use WiiScrubber to extract and replace, so feel free to explain how in any way. TL;DR - I tried what I know, not sure how to change the model of a weapon in battle.
  14. Hello all, I've been busy the last few weeks working on a reverse recruitment patch for Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn. So far I've been able to change al units to their corresponding counterparts up until 1-4. from that point onward, you have a Base, with Base conversations. To trigger the base conversations, you need certain characters in your party. (E.G.: Micaiah & Sothe for the Recruit Meg convo) This is where I started running into trouble. Since Micaiah had been replaced with Lehran and Sothe has been replaced with Caineghis, the conversations cannot be triggered. I've tried editing the SCRIPTS file, however, changing the PID.[Charactername] offsets did not yield any results. So far I haven't been able to find out how to change base convo requirements. If anyone is knowledgeable about this, I would appreciate the help. The other method I was thinking of was just adding Meg(Or her counterpart rather) to the party immediately, nullifying the need for the convo. Sadly, My work in de DISPOS_C and DISPOS_H files once again failed to deliver any results. I couldn't locate the part in the 68(hex) bits for whether or not a character is part of your current party. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have read the entirety of the RD hacking notes, which were a great help, however, this piece of code is unknown as far as that topic is concerned.
  15. Since I saw sth. like this about 5-6 years ago, I'd find it interesting to do sth. like this again. Each day an unit of FE10 is represented to be rated. The rating is based on hard mode and a normal run. I made an own calculation how to determine the score of each unit. You can copy this, but you can also rate everyone individually. current ranking: Day 1: Micaiah level 1 light mage personal skill: sacrifice affinity: darkness bases / growths HP: 15 (40%) strength: 2 (15%) magic: 7 (80%) skill: 8 (40%) speed: 7 (35%) luck: 10 (90%) defense: 2 (20%) resistence: 4 (90%) bases 4.5 / 10 (30%) Her base level is in average three leveles lower than the enemies. At least in the prologue no generic can orko her which will change in the Next chapter if she has leveled either HP or defense. growths 6.5 / 10 (20%) Her growths are fitting for her class she will become a powerful range weapon user and good staff user later on thanks to her high magic. With her mediocre speed she won't be able to double (even with resolve if her speed is low). Sine her magic and resistance are capped fast her speed ban be fixed with bexp. ease of use 7 / 10 (50%) Since Micaiah is a fragile and slow she belongs in the second row. In earlygame she's the best chipper and can oneshot early game bosses. In part three she'll be mainly busy with healing. She fulfills the role of the classical mage perfectly. The fact that she's a lord and is being killedis a minor issue but justified by her class. Still a bit more speed would be nice. Sacrifice is a pseudo-healing skill. Unfortunately with her low HP she can't heal all that much, but it's still good to have in emergency cases.. And it gives her the opportunity to make use skills like wrath or resolve. Darkness is a good affinity for sure. It increases her attack power and her supporting unit benefits from Evasion. Her default Support with Sothe is really useful. overall 6.15
  16. Enemy unit leadership stars Pros: Encourages you to approach combat differently, since assassinating enemy sub-commanders will allow you to debuff armies rather than fighting them at their full strength. Cons: Flat stat bonuses aren't always a good way to create a challenge. Especially in the case of hit and avoid. Fire emblem AI does not focus on walling off it's support characters. (although it's not a complicated AI to program as shown by games like Vantage Master). FE4 and FE10 use enemy's starting position to forcefully provide a simile of this, but they can be forced out of it far easier than a human or a strategy game AI would and make no effort to get back into this position once they get out of it. In some cases, if you can kill an enemy leader, then you are probably done with the map anyway (or 1 seize turn away), so sticking around to fight weakened becomes tedious and non-threatening. (grind abuse VS something like an early finish bonus) This can be avoided with larger maps or multiple bosses, but those open up their own problems. If the stat bonuses are too large then killing leaders overshadows all other aspects of the combat design (Ogre Battle SNES and N64 being examples of this) Visual confusion if you have enemies benefiting from both an overall leader and a sub-boss leader at same time, some units only receiving bonus from their own group, etc. Maps designed to allow for assassinations are often unnatural (even in other genres) and tend to go ham on player advantages or forcing players to follow a "script" Player unit leadership stars Pros: Encourages you to deploy units that you might not otherwise. gameplay advantages of more hit/avoid Allows a representation of charisma or tactical ability for characters in the story rather than the cursor and unit selector. Cons: In FE10 the effect was free and map wide, which allows for a version of FE 13-14's "backpacking" problem - leadership units could be deployed and left at your base or out of combat solely for the bonus with no risk and don't really add to the scenario. You don't need to position the leadership unit to get the advantage of the effect as with more conventional support bonus buffs or abilities like FE5's charm. (Or something like Langrisser's / Days of Ruin leadership zone) Protecting your VIP to keep the leadership boost as long as possible doesn't really add a gameplay dynamic in a FE context the way microing a "Stimpack" unit in a strategy game does. This is because of the encouragement to keep ALL troops alive, which means that most players will already be moving units conservatively to being with. FE10 overbalances the mechanic, to the point where it's possible to totally ignore it during a blind playthrough. If it was too beneficial, you would have a situation where players would feel obliged to always commit a deployment spot for these characters, which works against the freedom of army composition that Fire Emblem traditionally encourages. It's generally suggested to be placed on Lord units for story/flavor reasons, but in cases where those characters are force-deployed (a design choice of most FE games), it has no functional difference than having all the characters have higher base stats.
  17. What if the fire emblem heroes were to fall and all their adventures were given to random people? The fire emblem has been corrupted by the presence of the fell dragons, now a lone group of adventurers must travel to the different worlds and pick up where the fallen heroes started. (roleplay is welcome to everyone, would prefer it if we roleplayed on discord. Canon and ocs are allowed

  20. I feel like Jarod is under credited as the main antagonist of part 1, and when people bring up villains done right in the Fe series I'm surprised that Jarod is never mentioned. This is just my opinion and I'm going off memory here so correct me or tell me if I missed some things or was wrong, but Jarod was not your average staple on plain evil doer villain that so many people categorize him as. From the moment you see him you know he means business by killing his own soldier for letting the DB escape, and by his other actions you can see how bloodthirsty and power hungry he is from the prologue. The player gets see his interactions with his men and higher-ups and such as Numida and Fiona. These things let us really understand his personality and give us a good reason for us to want to DB to succeed making him a more satisfying enemy to defeat. The big parts that separate him from the rest of the pack of basic villains in the second half of part 1, where he gets betrayed by Numida and is left to answer for all of his crimes. Instead of begging for mercy and looking pathetic, he takes it like a man and decides to take his sworn enemy down with him. He gets even better when the Black knight kills his Soldier (I think his name was Alder) and Jarod says to himself "He was a good soldier", and swear vengeance for him. This is by itself makes him so much more than your common villain because it humanizes him and makes him relate-able without making you feel sympathy for him which so many people think is the only way to make a villain good. Lastly he never asked for a sliver of pity throughout all his actions and died a proud soldier, and in his last words he even said "I regret nothing.... because I did it my way". His speech to his men before the endgame was legendary as well and I'll post it for you guys so you can remember, but this is the kind of villain I want to see in FE switch and I would love to see your opinion on this subject. Feel free to correct me or state his faults as much as you desire, just remember that this is my opinion. Tell me if it's yours or not as well. “Listen up, all of you. This is our last chance to die as we've lived. As proud soldiers of the empire. If we survive this fight, imprisonment and a hushed-up execution await us. If we run from this fight, dishonor and pursuit will dog our miserable days. So I say, let's give those Daein curs a fight to remember, and let the glory of our deaths light our way! We've lived as proud soldiers of the empire! Let us die as proud soldiers of the empire! Now GO!” -Jarod's last speech to his army in Part 1, Endgame
  21. I guess this is the most hypothetic question I've asked yet, so I don't expect too much from this thread. Anyways if a possible remake of FE10 should make it, would you like to have two separate routes where you fight the other army? One route is the DB and the other one the GM's. It should work as in FE8 where you can choose your army (probably works best in the beginning). The reason why I came up with this idea is that FE10 is a very long game already. I'm fairly sure it has the most main story maps of all FE parts yet. And it's still not enough for the DB. It lacks on maps compared to the GM's. They tend to be underleveled and need more chapters to grow. As for the story part 3 is rushed. You don't get to know anything what happened after Pelleas's crowning. Izuka left, that's it! Suddenly Micaiah decides to start fighting against her own will just because Pelleas wants. There are too many plot holes which could and should be fixed in a remake. Some chapters are available in both routes like 3-7, 3-13 and 3-F where you contral the army whose route you chosed.

  23. I like the ability to grind in FE games, And since FE10 is hard, Maybe the tower of Guidance could fix that a little?
  24. First of all: I've never ever done a reiew before, so constructive criticism is appreciated to learn from it. I think it's time to review the videogame which has inspired me probably the most in my life yet. It introduced me into one of the most exciting videogame franchises and to this forum. It is Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn, the 10th part of this series, and the sequel of Path of Radiance. Story RD plays three years after Daein's and King Ashnard's fall. In this game you control different parties who have their own independent task and intentions. Each party has a lord, to be more precise a main character who may not die in their part. The first part deals with Daein. The Dawn Brigade with their leader Micaiah tries to free Daein from Begnion's cruel occupation. Begnion's leader tries to prevent it with all the possibilities he has without any consideration towards the Daeins and his own men. Micaiah has the hard task to stop Begnion's cruel schemings. His childhood friend Sothe (familar character from Path of Radiance) fights along side with her. Otherwise you'll see some new faces in the beginning and some familar characters later on. Part two is about Crimea's restore after the war against Daein. Elincia, the new and still unexperienced queen of Crimea, tries to look for freedom with Daein. However the nobles are scared that Daein takes the chance after its recovery to start a war against Crimea once again. This scepticism and fear propagate to the simple folk who start a rebellion against Elincia. The leader of the rebellion tries by all means (including hostage taking) to dethrone Elincia. The Crimean Knights have the task to stop this guy and to bring freedom back among the Crimeans. All units except for one are familar. In part three you control all three parties including the last one, the Greil's Mercenaries with their leader Ike. They also fight against Begnion but for a different reason. They support the Laguz because it came to light that Begnion is responsible for the burning in Serenesforest and the death of the former empress. As consequence the established Alliance of Laguz declared war against Begnion. The problem is that Daein's new king is helping Begnion quite suddenly who was Daein's biggest foe before its liberation. Micaiah, as loyal she is, follows his advices and fights for Begnion and against the Alliance of Laguz which means that Micaiah and Ike will become opponents. The result is that a total war is going to happen in Tellius. If you played the prequel, you will know what might happen... Gameplay RD has pretty much a similar gameplay to its prequel with a few improvements: skills can be removed without losing them third tier class system ledge feature which gives you a massive hit bosst / nerf when you attack from a platform above / below a few more mission objectives are added like defeaing certain number of enemies, destroying things in a turncount skippable battle animations biorhythm is more important dark magic exists knives are an own weapon type new weapons (a few were removed) introducing of authority stars (= leadership stars) unlimited forging in each chapter I'm pretty sure RD has the largest number of main story maps in FE with 43 and their variety is also large. A mix of defat, seize, escape, turnlimit and defend missions. Especially the defend chapters are really fun and challenging. Of course there are few less enjoyable chapters in the game but overall the map design is really good. However this game also has its issues. The main problem is the units's and difficulty balance. The difficulty curve isn't constant straight and the availibility of several units is horrible. The Dawn Brigade is that this is the party with the hardest chapters. The main issue is that Micaiah and some other DB members are really squishy and you lack on tanky units who can withstand several hits. Sothe is the only one who can, but he's basically your Jeigan, a prepromoted unit who steals the exp. early on. Micaiah herself is really squishy and sorta slow. Keep her out of any enemy attack ranges to keep her alive because she may not die at any time of this game. Same goes for all the other DB members till the fourth map. In general: This game has different Game Over conditions than the other parts. Many (side) characters may not die in certain chapters, so make sure to read the losing conditions every time not to get a bad surprise. Another issue is that Micaiah is the only one who has no authority stars so she can't grant her allies any hit / evasion boost which makes it for her group even harder. The other two parties start already second tier who even fight first tier units partly so they have a much easier time with the enemies. Now about the units's availibility, FE10's main weakpoint in terms of gameplay: Some units are going to leave in midgame and return (unautoleveled) close before the endgame. It's pure pain to let them catch up the others. It's really sad because it disqualifies some potential good units with a nice character. Also two allies for the DB join either underleveled or with below average bases. On harder difficulties it's very bothersome to train them. The graphics are really improved compared to FE9. The battle animations aren't static anymore, but they're really authentic now. Still my favorite animations in Fire Emblem up to date. The maps and characters are really well designed. Same goes for the soundtrack. Some tracks from FE9 return remixed and lots of new tracks are added. Most of them are enjoyable to listen and fit to the situation. Not my favorite soundtrack in FE but still a good one. Radiant Dawn has a better gameplay than Path of Radiance (close tied with Thracia 776 and Conquest) despite mentioned issues (there are still a few more minor issues). Storywise it's really good too but it has a few plotholes and it's a bit rushed mainly part 3. I don't really care for this because I prefer the gameplay over the story in a FE game. The main issue could be it's not really the best game for a newcomer to this series. Not because you have to play PoR first to understand the story, but because the difficulty of the DB chapters can cause you serious trouble. A few of your allies are so "weak" that they can be oneshotted. I highly recommend for any newcomer to read the really well explained tutorial guide. Radiant Dawn was my first game too and its difficulty almost made me want to ragequit it but the tutorial helped me to get into this game and series. If you're not aware of PoR's story and characters, RD has a dictionary about all the existing characters and some terms reagarding Tellius, so it will help you to get into the story. Overall it's a really enjoyable game especially if you play FE because of its gameplay. However it has not a massive replay potential (however still one replay guaranteed) because several units are really hard to use because of their limited availibility.
  25. In this thread I'd like to discuss the personality and quality as unit of all DB members. I define DB members as the ones who appear only in FE10 and fight alongside with Micaiah till part 3. These units will be discussed: Micaiah Edward Leonardo Nolan Laura Aran Meg Fiona Results Edward Leonardo Micaiah Meg Fiona Nolan Aran Laura #1 Edward I've argued with other people several times about this guy in other threads because I think some people don't see his true potential. He's easily the character in FE I could talk about the most. For me Edward is in amazing unit in the longrun and could be easily the best myrmidon / swordmaster in the game for me... but he's suffering on a few things. He's member of the party with the strongest enemies. Edward is a myrm so very fragile. In HM he can barely take two hits, mainly only by cats, swords and a few lance users with weapons not stronger than steels. If you're a lucky with his def and establish a support which gives him +3 defense, he can take two steel bows. Yes, Edward is definitely not the best front unit. And wrath is rather a suicide skill in close combat. His earlygame is hard. He needs one speed point to double the enemies in the next chapter and one strength point to finish weaken enemies by Nolan off. Since the possibility of getting strength and speed in one level is only 36%, he usually needs two levels in the prologue which is possible to get if the gets all the kills. After 1-3, the worst chapter for Edward, you can grind him quite well to make him fast enough to double some stuff. In 1-5 he can ORKO all the mages with the wind edge from the ledge. The best chapter to give him some levels. In general on HM you will mainly focus on very few units. Edward and Nolan are the ones who need level the most until Jill shows up. He has strong competion in person of Zihark. Many people tend to bench Edward when Zihark joins. Does it automatically mean that Edward is worse than Zihark? No! Zihark just joins with a level at a time Edward won't reach in 99% of the cases so Zihark has the bases to take several hits. Tbf if Edward is level 15 at the end of 1-6-2 (not impossible at all) and has a A-support with Leo, he'll have the same strength and defense as Zihark in 1-7. Only his speed is worse which doesn't matter too much. With his 19 speed he'd still double the soldiers in 1-8. If you give him a bexp. level to max his speed, he'd even double some brigands. Edward will reach the same close combat perfomance as Zihark. However there's another point which speaks for Zihark on paper. He has earth affinity, and earth affinity is the lifesaver for the later DB chapters. You need as much evasion as possible because the enemies hurt like trucks. Zihark with best biorhythm, A-support in earth and resolve will be untouchable. Does it mean that Edward is worse in combat than Zihark? Absolutely not! They're just different to use. While Zihark is amazing in close combat, Edward is great with wrath + range swords. It's a great way to get some free kills. Just bring his HP down by letting him attack by a tiger unequiped. And for the rest of the chapter attack him from wind edges / storm swords. If you really want to have a good hitrate, then support him with Meg who can be brought in each part 3 map for free and can be used as support at least. Unfortunately Caladbolg is the worst of Daein's holy weapons. As for the growths Edward is more powerful while Zihark has more speed and resistance who reminds me rather on a female swordmaster. In general I prefer Edward's growths because his strength and defense are better while resistance doesn't matter. That's the reason why he always turns out better than Zihark and I bring him along with Mia to the tower as second SS sword user. I find Edward underrated because he's a great PP unit. The only first tier unit aside of speed transfer Jill who can constantly double.
