So earlier today I had sort of an idea played in my head and then it got serious. It was a simple thought; why does Garon remind me so much of Ganondorf from Legend of Zelda. If your not familiar with LoZ (I've met hardcore gamers who don't know much about LoZ) Ganon is a dark wizard who is perceived by chosen oracles known as Sages or the warriors of the triforce goddesses (Farore=courage, Din=power, Nayru=wisdom) who chose to embed their gifts into, as an evil omen. No seriously all the townsfolk almost never mention Ganon, only the things hes done and to that they don't even know if he did it. The three warriors are always set in a certain time (or dimension) and events seem to always revolve around, if not in, the kingdom of Hyrule. So I was in the shower and suddenly I was making comparisons about the two kings. Garon as we know uses faceless to fight for him which are basically undead. Either that or he has Leo do it for him, but something makes me think he can summon them himself since a lot of his subordinates can. Ganon summons redeads to guard his castle and if you look at a redead upclose he looks a bit like a faceless just not as much muscle and crazy mask... Anyway Ganon sends out minions and guardians to stop Link the main protagonist, so does Garon with his subordinates. In some of LoZ's dialog some of Ganon's minions actually don't like fighting for him or are fed up with Ganon's reign but know they will die or be destroyed if they don't comply. Same lies true with Garon. There's a lot more comparisons to the two but I don't want to bombard you with a wall of text. But hey last thought, this wouldn't be the first time Fire Emblem had a play on names.
Hello everyone! If you haven't gotten to Paralogue 18 this will have spoilers for that, just a heads up! I've played through Awakening twice now on Normal/Casual and very few recruitable characters ever give me trouble as much as Gangrel (not including Paralogue 17 good lord). So I've thought about it, and would like to know, what do you guys do for that chapter to recruit him? I'll share what I usually do, but I'm almost positive there is a better way to go about it. My strategy is to make sure that I at least have two flying units. Frederick is a Wyvern Lord with A support for Chrom who is a Great Lord. I pair those two together and put them in the mountains right until Gangrel comes close enough to them, which ends up happening at the bottleneck of the two mountainsides. I'll fly out and switch to a weaponless Chrom and talk to Gangrel. Meanwhile, my other flying unit (it doesn't really matter who it is, my first time playing through was Grand Master Female Avatar and Falcon Knight Cordelia) will pair up with the Avatar and make their way to the village. My other units, besides Lissa and Libra, would go and clean up the spawn area but avoid going near the bottleneck just in case they pull Gangrel to them. Lissa (Sage) and Libra (Sage) were on standby in case anyone needed healing. With the village taken care of and the spawn area clear, I just wait on Chrom to finish talking to Gangrel for two more turns, meaning Chrom is weaponless during that time. On Normal difficulty that isn't a problem, but I think this plan would fail on Hard and up. Needless to say, Chrom finally gets Gangrel to join. Since I'm Casual scum, I just send Gangrel off to fight everyone by himself, but when I play on Classic I planned on just having Lissa or Libra to rescue him so he doesn't get killed by his former comrades. After that, everyone charges in and cleans up the map. It doesn't seem too hard of a map, it's just Gangrel makes it difficult if you really want to recruit him. Like I've said, I know my strategy isn't that great, so I'm curious on what others on Serenes Forest have tried.
