  1. Hello everyone! It's been one and a half years since the latest SRW draft was started, and a day since I finished it. So, of course, it's time to start up a new one. My usual partner in crime, Wen Yang, has unfortunately not logged in for a year, and I've copied more or less his rule set, which he copied from me, so its all good. Rules: You start off with a fresh save file, New game+ is not allowed. The Banpresto Original unit (Including Vorlent) as well as the Archangel and Nadesico are free to use the entire game Every other unit has to be drafted to be used without penalty, though there will be a lot of exceptions to this. The penalty for using an undrafted unit is 4 turns Undrafted units are allowed to persuade and sit their asses in a battleship. They are also allowed to cast skills like accel, zeal and enable(on themselves) if it keeps enemies from attacking them. All other skills are forbidden. They may not be used for support attacks or team attacks. They may also not be used for friendship, love, rivalry or command aura bonuses. There are exceptions to this and this comes into play with forced deployment. You are allowed the use of any and every forced unit who can't retreat into a battleship. This exception only lasts till they can retreat into a battleship. Also on the one beach episode map, you're allowed one free unit if you have no drafted units on the map. This exception lasts till reaching the unit deployment. This draft is for 4 people UNIT LIST: Nadesico: Aestivalis - Akito Aestivalis - Hikaru Aestivalis - Ryoko Aestivalis - Izumi Aestivalis - Gai Aestivalis - Akatsuki X-Aestivalis Mazinger: Mazinger Z > Mazinkaiser > Mazinkaiser KS Great Mazinger Aphrodite A > Venus A Boss Borot Million Alpha Lonesome Supers: Combattler V Voltes V Zeorymer > Great Zeorymer Dancougar > Final Dancougar Tekkaman: Blue Earth Tekkaman Blade + Pegas Sol Tekkaman 1 Sol Tekkaman 2 Tekkaman Rapier Brainpowerd: Nakki Brain Kant Brain Brain Child (Kanan) Brain Child (Higgins) Yu Brain > Nelly Brain Hime Brain Nanga Brain Lasse Brain Baronz Iiko Baronz SPT Layzner: Layzner > Mk.II > Enhanced Baybull Buldy Greimkaiser Bloodykaiser Gundam SEED: Strike Gundam Freedom Gundam Justice Gundam Buster Gundam Duel Gundam Moebius Zero Sky Grasper 1 Sky Grasper 2 M1 Astray Strike Rouge Gundam Eternal Full Metal Panic!: M9 Gernsback > ARX-7 Arbalest = Bonta-kun M9 Gernsback (Mao) M9 Gernsback (Kurz) G Gundam: Shining Gundam > God Gundam Rose Gundam Maxter Gundam Dragon Gundam Bolt Gundam Rising Gundam Nobel Gundam Input on random.org gave the following drafting order: 1.

  2. Alright, now follow me on this. We could obviously do the "Walhart is one letter off from Walmart" thing, but there is an obvious connection between the two if you look deep enough. Well, there are multiple, so lets go down the list. For simplicities sake, we'll start with Walhart. 1) Walhart rules the continent Valm. Valm is Valencia, the Kingdom of Valencia was started by Alm. What color is most prominent on Alm? Blue. What color is Walmart famous for? Blue. Connection number 1 2) Walhart has multiple generals, one of which is named Excellus. Excellus is also the name of an iphone app. Phones are sold at Walmart. 3) Walhart comes with the skill Conquest. Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest can still be found at Walmart. 4) Another one of Walhart's generals was Cervantes. Cervantes is the last name of a famous Spanish writer. In his most famous book, "Don Quixote" (which could probably be found at a Walmart, but that's the easy way out), the main character lives in the La Mancha region. With La Mancha, we get to the movie "Man of La Mancha", an adaptation of a book by Dale Wasserman. Dale Wasserman died in Paradise Valley, Arizona, and guess what's at Paradise Valley, Arizona, A WALMART SUPERCENTER. 5) Walhart is voiced by Richard Epcar, who also is Ansem in KH3. KH3 is coming out for PS4 and Xbox 1 (again, can be bought at Walmart, but we're going in further). PlayStation is made by Sony, whose head office is in Minato, Tokyo, Japan. The Minato region of Tokyo is well known for the Tokyo Tower. The Tokyo Tower is 1,092 ft tall, making it the second tallest thing in Japan. You know what else is the second tallest of something? John Rogan, who is the second tallest person in the world (or was, he is dead). He lived and died in Tennessee (there are Walmart in Tennessee, but that's too easy, we did that last time). Tennessee is currently going through it's midterms, and has a few candidates. The Democratic nominee is Marsha Blackburn, who was just endorsed by Taylor Swift. Taylor Swift is a friend of Ed Sheeran, who recently played at the Nashville's Nissan Stadium. But while in Tennessee, you know where Mr. Sheeran went? That's right, he went to Walmart to get some pajamas. BOOM! If you have any other Walhart Walmart connections, please inform me of them immediately
  3. Even Sacred Stones is my fav game in the series, when you put all bias aside and look at it as a game in general, it's pretty meh to be honest. The story has one of the best villains in the series, Lyon, and other than the dual lord story, thats really all the game has going for it. The overall plot is kinda messy, but in a way where it still works but very oddly so. And may I mention that the game is EASY. Compared to FE 6 and 7, this game is a cakewalk and doesn't show any real signs of difficulty until really late chapters, where your team will be super buff anyways so it all cancels out pretty much. I beat this game four times and I can say, with certainty, that this is the best, worst Fire Emblem game.
  4. So I was surfing the Romhacking.net forums a few days ago...and apparently, someone named "Cirosan" released this! https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/3961/ That's right. Patch that puppy, and you'll always go through the Prologue on all difficulties! And if you want, you can use the version of it that also gets rid of Gaiden requirements. No more having to kill off your characters! You'll wanna be careful though; H5 Prologue is no picnic. The guy had to make some drastic changes to Prologue I and II just to make them possible. Giving Marth a Vulnerary at the start, making certain enemies drop Vulneraries, and even changing the class and equipment of some of those enemies...those are all things he did. And even then, the difficulty was still comparable to Lunatic Reverse on FE12... ... Course, on the other hand, Chapters 1-3 end up being a lot easier; to the point where my Marth was doubling the Chapter 1 pirates . But yeah, anyone else hear of those?
  5. Greetings, Serenes Forest! I hope everyone's having a great Easter. As it happens, today is the day I have finally completed my magnum opus, THE BEGGINING. I sincerely believe you will find this game to be an epic and scintillating quest for revenge that will keep you on your toes. The game patches to FE8. DOWNLOAD SCREENSHOTS: SPECIAL THANKS:
  6. So, having just about beaten this game, I am indeed pleased at all the obvious love that went into it. It didn't have a lot of the silly things that dragged Awakening and Fates down, had a lot of neat mechanics changes, made fantastic use of the secondary characters (for example, May, Boey, and Saber remaining relevant all the way to the very end), GREATLY expanded the story and dialogue, had wonderful voice acting...it was a treat. So before I go into the things I miss, I wanted to make it clear that I still consider this to be a good remake. That said...I'm someone who also really liked the NES version, in-spite of all it's flaws. And while this remake was great in it's own way, I felt there were a lot of little things that I missed. I'm only going to cover the atmosphere, this time, as this post ended up being WAY longer than I thought it would be. But, I'll get into other nitpicks in the future. For now, here's just the atmosphere. Number 1: Atmosphere One of the things that always stuck out to me about Gaiden was just how...bleak it was. From the minute you start, to the very end, the tone is generally very somber and tragic. Where the remake feels like you're trying to prevent bad things from happening...the original felt like the bad stuff had already happened. Part of the whole point of this game (and why Celica was so willing to offer herself to Jedah) was because the world was on the brink of dying. The land was dark and ominous, the literal dead were walking the Earth, and the soundtrack was EXTREMELY depressing (with only a handful of "positive" tunes in there). Celica's decision to sacrifice herself to Duma wasn't because she was naive and stupid (as you'll recall, she asks him WHY she should believe what he says). It was her believing that the whole world was dying. If she did nothing, everyone and everything in the world would die (as far as she knew). She wasn't stupid, she was desperate; and Jedah actually did a really good job of playing upon that (seriously, props to the writing team; these characters were really well-written). In any case, the original Gaiden did a WAY better job of selling me on just how desperate things were. The villages were a lot emptier, the color palette was significantly darker... ...The characters weren't nearly as handsome and well-groomed as they are in Echoes... ...and the soundtrack was generally a lot more depressing. There were a lot of new songs composed for this remake; and many of them were a lot cheerier and/or relaxing than the original songs. And even some of the original songs that were used were radically changed and/or used less frequently. For example, compare this... Village Theme (Echoes): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkAjHxLKTfE A fairly neutral piece of mood music that's just kind of...there. It's not CHEERY or anything, but it's relaxing enough that you feel safe and confident. The grass is green (even in the supposedly "baren" Rigel Empire), the houses are standing, the sky is blue...you're feeling pretty good. The GAIDEN music, on the other hand... Village Theme (Gaiden): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGg97xkg4DQ Yeah. IMMEDIATELY, it sets this somber, outright oppressive atmosphere. It's depressing, and extremely monotonous. However, it's monotonous in a good way. Alm's argument with Mycen, as well as Lukas' speech about how desperate things are, hit a lot harder with this song droning in the background. And that isn't the only time it's used, either. It is used in every village you come across in the original game, save for the Sage's Hamlet and both port towns. Every village you come across is supposed to be in a state of desperation; and the original song reflects that a lot better. That said, Echoes DOES use this song once. Though, sadly... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=io2yXqWVa4g It now sounds a lot more uplifting; as this has been turned into Alm's triumphant "I'm going to rise up and join the army!" theme. Still would've at least worked well for Lukas' recruitment speech, at least...but still missing the sense of despair the original had (to me, at least). The other town theme (the one that played for the aforementioned port towns and Sage's Hamlet) is also the same way. In Gaiden, you feel very...emotional, when you hear it. Encounter (Gaiden): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Hj0eM_YkuA Like, the characters themselves are happy...but they're happy in the context of a world of tears. The song is just as much sad as it is happy; being played as the recruitment theme AND the theme that plays when random villagers are talking about how many people Barth and Grieth have slaughtered. Like, the way the song is cheery, but desolate at the same time. The characters are smiling, but they're smiling in the face of unspeakable pain (or so it sounds to me). The Echoes version, on the other hand, is just happy through and through. Encounter (Echoes): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXF8HFGRvgU And it IS great, don't get me wrong! I love the way it's used in the Remakes, too! I just wish they had maybe...I dunno, constructed two different versions of it. Maybe the above piece could have been the "holy cow, Est has been reunited with her sisters!!" theme, and the other could be the "port town of sad and lonely people" variation. And finally, there's "Celica Map 2/The Sacrifice and the Saint". Once again, this is the case where I like what they did with the remake...but still wish they had found a way to recapture the mood of the original. The Sacrifice and the Saint (Gaiden): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCAfEHiuI6E Now, instead of playing exclusively as Celica's "Chapter 4 Battle Music", this was, instead, the "Victory" theme. The theme that played whenever there was only one enemy left, in ALL Celica battles. In a vacuum, it's obviously not as well composed as the remake. But, it DOES do a better job of supporting that aforementioned "oppressive atmosphere". It's faintly triumphant, but it also sounds desperate at the same time. Like, the characters are winning, but, it's just one step in the long, LONG ordeal that Celica has ahead of her. She's won the fight, but she's still got the entire war ahead of her. But the Remake... The Sacrifice and the Saint (Echoes): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxI9G3v-n4o Well, it works fantastically as an endgame battle theme. But, once again, it is WAY more triumphant and hopeful than the original. And that's something I find regrettable. Had they kept that same sense of despair throughout the whole game, it would have made Celica's decision to sacrifice herself to Duma make a little more sense. It wouldn't have been smart, necessarily...but I could totally buy her just being really desperate to save her dying world.
  7. So I just finished playing Binding Blade, which is my last gba title. I want to jump into the NES/SNES era of games and thought Genealogy would be a good snes era game to start with. But is there any other title I should play before that? And what tips should I know before jumping in? Thanks in advance.
  8. Ok, I just looked at the Wikis on this information. Are you telling me the Fire Emblem ISN'T present in this game??? I know that the Fire Emblem in this universe is the Shield of Seals and is still in Archanea (if I'm correct), but... what's the point of the title Fire Emblem if there is no Fire Emblem present? I guess the Fire Emblem couldn't be removed from Archanea without plot holes, but seriously just why? "Let's make a Fire Emblem game... but let's not put the Fire Emblem in the game." Great logic Nintendo. Must've been hard to do that while taking out the Waifu Simulator at the same time when making the remake.
  9. ok, I finished the game for the first time( amazing game). but the ending got this weird text( probably because of translation maybe?) afer seizing the final castle and then froze on this screen. Is it a bug or maybe it was a translation bug?
  10. Do forgive me if there is an specific help section for this kind of stuff on the forums and I could not find it. I'm kinda new here. My problem is that I'm having a bit of trouble trying to emultion FE4 with the Naga translation. I tried updating the patch using Lunar IPS and neither the headered or unheadered patches work, the game just boots up the screen on the screenshot provided and then remains dark forever. the Delta patcher doesn't work for me either, so I'm not really sure what to do. Could anyone help me?
  11. Guys if you like Fe4 and want to watch an LP of it with a twist make sure to watch this.

  15. A little backstory here: On this Spyro fansite I once created this Survivor style general trivia challenge game. Didn't host but it was still really fun to do. Even after I left that site, I loved the idea. Here's my proposal: This game is based on the honor system. That means that looking up answers is not incouraged, but no one could really stop you. The game operates on Days. There will be 12 or so Days where a member from the losing team is eliminated until the merge occurs. Then it shall be one large team with individual invincibility. People will be voted off each day, except for possibly one or so non-elimination days. Contestants will send their votes by PM to the hosts. This of course means any hosts will probably need a good inbox or something. Looking to have around 10-12 competitors. Also would like to have a host, but it'd probably be a pretty difficult job. They'd get all the credit if this goes well. I know I've had this go well before, but it was never thanks to me. Teams will be randomized I guess. Contestants: 1. Franziska 2. Power Master 3. Draco 4. Glaceon Mage 5. Icemario 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11 and 12 to be added if space is needed. Host: Baldrick Teams: Team *host choice #1*: Team *host choice #2*:
  16. Does anyone know where I can find it? I know its very similar to paradise scramble but I prefer this due to the guitar in the battle theme.
  17. The first Shining Force is one of my favorite games ever, so it's kind of a surprise that I didn't play this remake until very recently (like, a day or two ago). But it really did seem perfect for drafting, and I personally really want to do something like this myself, so...here you find me, making this draft. With some rules, no less! EDIT THE DIFFICULTY IS DEFAULT (NORMAL) AKA WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU START A NEW GAME ON A NEW CARTRIDGE (SO NO CHAPTER 1 BANNED MAWLOCK) 1. This draft is for 4 players, who will each draft 7 units in standard snake style format (no last round reverse going on here). 2. Since they can be undeployed immediately, unless there are any exceptions of units forced into a chapter (besides Max, Narsha, Zuika, and Mawlock), there is a 4 turn penalty for each undrafted unit who is deployed, per battle. 3. Max (main character), Lowe (healing chump), Hans (backup combat chump), & Narsha (to make her gaidens worth it for everyone, also requisite non chump/MC) are free. 4. Mawlock is banned, except for the epilogue chapters. Sorry, he's just too much of a game-changer, and I'd prefer not to have him for this draft. 4. You may use Egress to grind during battles, however turns taken in this period will still be added to your total turncount....So kind of a bit counterproductive. 5. On a similar note, if Max dies (and you opt not to reset), the turns will still be added...so yeah, save a lot? 6. However, you may Egress/retreat as long as no Attacks have been made for that battle (for either side) with no penalty...if you actually clear a map while doing this, 20 turn penalty, JERK! 7. The epilogue chapters will be free for up to 20 turns. 8. If there's anything about the rules that needs fixing, feel free to drop a comment on the thread, even if you're not in the draft. Teams 1. Refa- Luke, Zylo, Gong, Arthur, Pelle, Bleu, Jogurt 2. Ice Sage- Gort, Hanzou, Mae, Anri, Zuika, Alef, Lyle 3. BBM- Earnest, Domingo, Kokichi, Amon, Khris, Musashi, Adam 4. SRC- Tao, Balbaroy, Vankar, Ken, Diane, Guntz, Torasu Units List
  18. I asked you all if you snorted coke (coca-cola). Now you can ask me a question. Sorry no butts, I false advertised. ...Wait, where are you going?... ...Please don't leave... ...Please...
  19. If anyone could make a Sacred Stones revision of Seliph from FE4, that'd be awesome! Seliph/Celice btw vvv and by revision I mean his portrait (ghasty edit, don't double post please, just edit this one) Sweeeeeeet!
  20. Hiya, I'm planning on making reviews of various video games on Youtube, and I was wondering which of these gems of gaming Serenes Forest would like me to review Fire Emblem 1 on the NES Sonic 06 on the 360 Metroid Other M on the Wii Note that FE 1 and Metroid Other M I'll be heading into blind if picked I'll review what does the best in the poll, but I plan to get to each one eventually. You have till 6 PM Central time, as that's when I'll start filming
  21. ^Basically the topic; what are the craziest instances of the RNG screwing with you that you've seen? Lemee start things off: This is my first time playing FE6. Somehow, I don't think Lugh is supposed to have 11 defense at level 12 (see: 15% defense growth, 3 base defense). I'm sure I've had other equally ridiculous cases of weird RNG, but this one is super fresh on my mind because it's in progress. You guys got anything?
  22. What are your thoughts on how the Kalos Pokémon, and old blokes like Azumarill who got some new tools to utilize, will work out in the X/Y metagame? Talonflame I feel is definitely OU material. Gale Wings is just too amazing with priority Roost/Acrobatics/Brave Bird, and it helps that it also has Flare Blitz access as well as Bulk Up/Swords Dance. Stealth Rock blows, but at least it can Roost it off. Slurpuff is hilarious. Unburden + Sitrus Berry + Belly Drum is quite the combination. Though other than that hilarity, I think it'll be NU or RU. Contrary Malamar and Superpower, along with its awesome Dark/Psychic typing is definitely UU material. I'd list more, but I'm tired.
  23. The "The War For Our Future" thread is starting to become popular now, and in typical role playing fashion we're starting to make personalities and back story for our characters. This thread is where you write down your character bios! [spoiler=Bio template. This is optional, so use it if you wish]Name: Birthday: Birthplace: Last Known Residence: Class: Speciality: (List special skills). Voiced By: (Can take out if having trouble. You may list JAP and/or ENG voices). Crit/Skill Activation Quotes: [spoiler=Dusk]Name: DodgeDusk (Dodge and/or Dusk is acceptable) Class: Was a Sniper, but has recently reclassed into a Warrior Birthday: 30th July Birthplace: Small village in Ylisse Last known residence: A Valmese inn Critical hit/skill activation quote: "This is for them..!" "You never stood a chance!" "Meet you in the afterlife!" (He no longer says this, due to believing that he now has a reason to live) "How unfortunate!" "Your death will please me" Voice actor: Steve Valentine Stats: HP: 80 Str: 50 Mag: 5 Skl: 46 Spd: 42 Lck: 45 Def: 35 Res: 30 Axe: A, Bow: A Appearance: Has very similar hair to Narbarl/Naverre but is coloured white instead. He dons a light blue fedora with a white feather on the right side. He wears an asymmetrical white jacket, which reaches to the back of his left leg. Wears white trousers, white top and light blue gloves, boots and a light blue muffler, which covers most of the lower half of his face. Ever since chapter 1, his left sleeve has been mostly ripped off, due to being stabbed in the arm with a killer lance, and there is a gaping hole in his jacket, due to being shot in the shoulder by Breezy. He'd repair his clothes, but he thinks that the rugged look matches his personality and past Bio: Puts others before him, but his exterior is moderately cold. Has good intentions but can be a bit blunt and condescending but ultimately respects everyone in the army. Is very sarcastic and is the one who plays with his hair the most He never knew his parents, as they were killed by bandits before he could even remember. Somehow avoiding them, he ended up wandering into a small village and was adopted by a young couple out of pity. The couple weren't very nice however, as they forced him to study in isolation with little food or water. When he was around 9 bandits yet again attacked the village, killing the couple, as well as the others. He hid whilst this savagery was going on, and when it all finished the village was pretty much beyond the point of repair. Armed with a bronze axe one of his carers used trying to protect to village, he set off on his own. Not used to the outside world, he quickly fell unconscious out in the wilderness When he woke up, he found himself in a bed. Realising he was in a house he quickly found the owner outside chopping wood with his axe. After a conversation he found out that his man was a retired Feroxi soldier who used to fight representing Basilio in the arena until he was bested and nearly killed by the now-current champion, Lon'qu. The man decided on teaching Dusk everything he knew about an axe and trained him up until he was about 11. Around this time, Dusk noticed the man had an old iron bow in one of his closets. Explaining to Dusk that he used to be a warrior, warriors wielded both axes and bows. Dusk though that bows were a lot cooler and asked if he could be trained with a bow instead, which the man happily obliged to. This carried on until Dusk was around 13 or 14 when his training was finished. Thanking the old man, he decided to wander off and try life as a young mercenary. After a year or so, he found a quiet Ylissean village not too far from the Ylissean-Plegian border and decided to stay there. He tried joining the local mercenary group there (which consisted of a bunch of kids around his age, with the leader being a young adult) but none of them were happy with it and mocked him. Infuriated, he challenged the leader in a 1v1 to the death. After blundering wit his bronze axe the axe broke under the sheer strength of his opponent. Switching to the iron bow his old teacher gave him, he showed an excellent display of archery and nearly killed his opponent. Surrendering, the leader gave up his title and gave it to Dusk, thinking he was the better fighter. Thinking that he was much better with the bow than he was with the axe, he disregarded the axe and carried on training further with the bow. The other mercenaries quickly grew fond of him, and they eventually all became friends Was in the war against Plegia during Emmeryn's rule commanding a small force of close friends protecting a village. Would've won the day without any problems but the Plegians did a dirty trick which ultimately had the whole village burning to ashes and was the only Ylissean who walked out alive that day. Has survivor guilt because of this and doesn't want anybody to be too close to him, as the pain of losing another close friend could prove too much. His cold demeanour was somewhat forced by this event, but he was never exactly open arms to begin with After this he became a mercenary with morals, which is a rare trait for someone who had little money and barely any emotion. One day he was offered 50000G to be the husband of a daughter to a man who was an important figure in Valm. He accepted and is now officially married, although he had no special feelings towards this woman, until she was killed by a bunch of local bandits. Promising her he'd always be by her side protecting her he felt even more guilty about being alive. Since then he told himself he'd never get too attached to anybody ever again. In memory of her he still wears a chipped ring on his ring finger, but is covered up by a glove so nobody can see it. After the events of chapter 8 he no longer wears this ring, since he is in a relationship After chapter 3 he starts to question himself, seeing most of the things he believed in was crushed in a single night. He hides himself from everybody as he sees himself as a failure, only showing his face for important discussions. Otherwise he's either in his room or in the courtyard during the late hours of night, practising his bow (and maybe something else?) After the events of chapter 8 Kat and him started a relationship. For the first time in his life since his friends were killed he felt happy for once. Since that night his attitude has been a lot more upbeat and optimistic, but snaps very easily when something gets brought up that involves negativeness and Kat mixed together, or when his feeling of guilt is brought up [spoiler=Kat]Name: Kat Original name: Agrona Zaphikel, though if your name is Alicia, Sorin, Dusk, or Phoibus, call her that at your own peril. Most recent name before Kat: Elspeth Zatara Age: Appears 25. Her current body is over 200 years old, however, and her mind is even older. Birthday: No longer remembers. Celebrates it at the end of the year. Birthplace: Her original country is long gone, and forgotten by history. Last Known Residence: Ylisse, which is how she came across the Dreamers Class: Currently FE2!Priest Speciality: Assassinations, Rallying, Convoy management, Black Magic, Scolding Voiced By: Tara Platt Crit/Skill Activation Quotes: "Goddess Rally." -> For the Goddess Rally only "Yeah, no." "You're boring me." "Enjoy the afterlife." "I'm sorry, Mila…" Appearance: Currently has short black hair, with a bright blue right eye and a blue-green left eye, courtesy of Dan. Wears an assassin's outfit that's not quite as tight as the typical female assassin garb. Weapons: Swords and Black Magic, though she keeps a dagger on hand in case of emergencies Bio: Known as Mila's Warrior, Protector, and Assassin, she's far older than she looks. Due her contract with Mila, she has a type of immortality where she can be killed, but is instantly reincarnated as a baby again. Once she reaches a certain age, varying throughout the years, she regains her memories and takes her place again as a neutral guardian. Due to reasons she still hasn't truly revealed to the others, however, she has chosen to not be neutral in the Anna conflict, instead fighting alongside the Dreamers. However, the fact that they'll all eventually die on her scares her, due to how close she's becoming to all of them. ​In most of her lives, she's leaned towards the assassin profession as it's the most familiar to her. However, she has trained in many other types of weaponry and magic, though daggers, swords, and black magic are always her best. Since Tabitha's death, however, she hasn't practised and, to her chagrin, she's very rusty and practices often to regain her skills. Recalls only having one loving family in all of her lives, her most recent one. Thus, their loss was absolutely devastating to her (especially her little sister, Tabitha), and triggered events that separated her from Phoibus, her one constant throughout the many lives, due to his own contract with Doma. Has recently started up a relationship with Dusk, and, while this makes her incredibly happy, she's also very scared that his insistence on heroics will lead him to an early grave. Due to coming from a time where kissing wasn't kept just for couples, she freely kisses people, as a sign on admiration of affection, something Dusk hasn't realised yet. Remains the army's biggest enigma, due to everything she's seen, yet also appears to be one of the few people capable of holding all of the Dreamers together, something she doesn't quite understand. Her loyalty, or the faith she has towards a person can be lost if the person commits genocide, or something similar. A couple of days after chapter 11, she has been rendered bedridden and thus, can not do as much as she wants to. Yuffie has allowed her to travel via his dead wife's horse, which will make transporting her to and from places easier. [spoiler=Sorin]Name: Sorin Age: 20 Build: 1 Hair: 5 Hair: Silver Voice: 2 or Calm Birthday: August 29th HP: 80 Strength: 41 Magic: 41 Skill: 42+5 Speed: 44+5 Luck: 40 Defense: 38 Resistance: 42+5 Weapon Ranks (Awakening) Swords: A Magic(Anima, Light, and Dark): A Class Change "I will grow stronger.

"C'mon, fight back." "There's no escape for you." Partner Defeated Enemy "I didn't need your help." "...Thanks I guess." "Well done." Enemy Defeated "Try again." "Did that hurt?" "*Sigh*" Voice actor: Brandon Karrer Appearance: A Grandmaster but with the clothing of Izanagi-No-Okami from Persona 4 The Golden (minus the helmet) or at least the cloak and chest guard. Roster A tactician found by Chrom in a field outside Ylisstol. He has a very rich bloodline that started back in the days of the Holy War. Also where his family blade, the Purgatorial Abysm was made. Refuses to use magic(Well this incarnation does.) no matter how proficient his is and chooses to hone his rather amazing sword craft. He mysteriously has both the Mark of Naga(On his chest from his mother, Chrom's Half-Aunt) and the Mark of Grima(on his right hand from his father, just guess) but tries his best to keep them hidden. Isn't afraid to get his hands dirty in wartime but loving to his allies and family. Fell into this outrealm and began helping the resistance somehow becoming its leader. Tries not to crack under the stress but... The most easily hid emotions of the army. His mother is the bastard child of Chrom's grandfather and a mistress of his. Although this making her Chrom's father's half sister, she was still shunned by him and the rest of House Ylisse despite her pacifistic nature(Which was later adopted by her half niece, Emmeryn.). Eventually she ran away and by chance met Validar. She somehow fell for him and bore him a son. Afterwards however she found out about his sadistic Grimleal desires and in attempt to save her son tried to return to Ylisstol but was denied by her half brother and exiled. The rest was lost to history....or was it? Due to Sorin's lineage of having Exalted and Grimleal blood along with many other bloods, using either Light or Dark Magic make the symbols of his hybrid blood cause him great pain. Using Thunder Magic is extremely easy for him and yet very powerful(During the Holy War, his blood becomes mixed with Tiltyu's Freege Blood.). Sorin himself has been reincarnated and has taken place in many major conflicts throughout history. It follows his bloodline and so far, he has been in Jugdral, Archanea, Elibe, Magvel, and Tellius. Once they die, that reincarnation's soul is sealed into Abysm to aid the future ones. His ancestors found the Purgatorial Abysm. Purgatorial Abysm was made back during the 12 Crusaders battle against the Dark God, Loptyr. Due to all the positive and negative energy from Naga and Loptyr this it was made from the mixture of both energies and took the shape of a blade. The blade was found by the original Sorin's family and was passed down eventually going to him. Abysm "infected" Sorin's family's blood with both Naga and Loptyr energy changing it into the only blood accepted by it. The Naga and Loptyr blood eventually fused many generations before the first Sorin was given the blade forming the Holy Blood known as, Purgatorial Since it was made from Light and Darkness it has an aversion to both while having a slayer effect on both and has been sought after because of the immense boost in power it gives. It is a powerful channel for light and dark magic as well as a unmatched physical weapon. Due to the blade's neutral alignment and the fact that the first hands laid on it were those of Sorin's family there is now a seal preventing those other than family from harnessing it's it because now Sorin's blood is the complete median. The blood can be replicated though. Just not easily. In Awakening, Abysm is acquired by Sorin from Tiki once they climb the Mila Tree. It was found by one of her followers once his mother lost it. [spoiler=Anonymous Speed]Name: Anon Class: Hero Birthday: 4/22 Birthplace: Unknown, somewhere on the Altean continent Residence: Wayfarer Specialty: Axes, science, surprise and variable tactics, preparation, deduction Voice actor: Nolan North Class change: 'Let's see what else I can learn this time...' Dual Strike: 'Impress me!' 'May help?' 'I love the feel of a fight during all times of the day!' Dual Strike: 'Excu-se me,' 'Worthless protoplasm!' 'Double the power!' Dual Guard; 'Access denied!' 'Ah-ah-ah,' 'Failure! You okay?' Critical: 'You think you've seen it all? I can do so much more!' 'Breathing is strictly prohibited among the enemy ranks!' 'Heheh, behold!' 'Strike a pose!' Partner defeats enemy: 'Well, color me impressed,' 'Hm, I must do better!' 'Well, I could learn a few things from you,' Defeats enemy: 'Heheh, I love a good fight!' 'Quite the experience!' 'Whoo, glad that's over,' Appearance: Tall, pale faced with curly brown hair. Has a flawless jawline. Bio: A high end mercenary, Anon has spent almost half his life trying to better his faith, fighting and mind, and over the years has accumulated an impressive collection of texts, weapons, scrolls, and other trinkets and trophies. He has very high professional standards, believing that any qualified professional should be able to complete their job without collateral damage or civilian casualties. Despite his love of warfare and obsession with weaponry, he is picky about who employs him, and has a strong hatred of unnecessary death, such as slaying surrendered humans and slaughtering individuals not directly involved in the fighting. He has vast array of fighting techniques and facts at his disposal learned from intercontinental travel and devoted study, to the point of his having a web if contacts in several underground circles if battle and theorization. Generally, Anon is boastful, difficult to deter and upbeat, taking joy in every moment of his fights and every so often making some snark remark. He's also very scientific, thinking through even the most ludicrous of possibilities and explanation and being well versed in a handful of fields of research. He is rarely worried or somber, except in scenarios were he perceives himself unable to protect close associates of his, such as his family or allies. However, he has a difficult time getting over his failures. His many possessions make his quarters the most cluttered of anyone in the army, he despises waste or time or resources, and is very strict about being prepared. One last defining trait about him is his over-zealously celibate tendencies, taking pride in his single life style and having high disgust to the point of hatred towards explicit sexual material. He has a brother named Block, an archer of engineering ability to rival Anon's genius. Anon puts a lot of faith in his brother and is on good terms with him, as he writes when time allows and has left him in charge of looking after his family while he is busy in the Dreamers campaign, never showing doubt in Block's ability. [spoiler=Carter]Name: Carter Birthday: October 21st Birthplace: Ylisse Last Known Residence: Ylisstol Outskirts Class: Dark Flier; War Cleric on foot. Speciality: (Timeless) Tomes, Singing Voiced By: Karen Strassman Crit/Skill Activation Quotes: "You can try..." "Get ready!" "Slow down!" "Not today!" Appearance: Long, smooth brown ombre hair. Usually puts hair as a bun (w/ side braid) or high ponytail (just in case any of you don't know what these look like). Has her share of dresses, usually shirtdresses or wrap dresses. If not, she normally wears crop tops with high mini skirts, or her tank tops with skinny jeans & UGG boots, or short shorts and sperrys'.. (LOL I feel like I just described my dream wardrobe). Bio: A generally nice girl with an alter ego.. that is if you can trigger it. Is honestly blunt, and extremely rude. If you can get onto her soft side, then kudos. A normal girl in Ylisse, living with her brother and sister. She joined the group after reading said recruitment. Being one of the first to sign up, she has become the Master Tactician, alongside her old friend, Sorin, who has become the commander. Her reasons for being mean are unknown, but you should never do anything to upset her. Gets upset real easily, and likes to have things her way. Is smart academically, but physically weak. When in a tantrum, adrenaline rises a thousand fold, and her strength becomes uncontrollable. Doesn't spend much time fighting with most of the group, as she just stays behind and practices her magic. She spends most of her time singing, regardless of others' opinions. She is usually shy and withdrawn, and extremely self-conscious. She aspires to be a singer. The one with the loudest scream. [spoiler=Polydeuces]Name: Polydeuces (Poly for short) Birthday: April 25th Birthplace: Regna Ferox Last Known Residence: Ylisstol Outskirts Class: Hero Speciality: Ranged Swords, Diversions Voiced By: Katsuyuki Konishi (JP)/DC Douglas (ENG) Crit/Skill Activation Quotes: "Time for the showdown!" "I'll rip you in two!" "Witness the impossible!" "Your ass is mine!" Appearance: Short, messy, greyish-white hair and a scar on his face. His battle model is more akin to Linus & Raven's models from FE7, as he wears a dark blue and black longcoat with the Roman numeral 'IV' on it, signifying his past as "The Emperor of North Ferox" as well as lending to the tarot motif. Under the coat, he wears light armor akin to that of the Bow Knight or the traditional Mercenary class. Bio: A young man from Regna Ferox with a chip on his shoulder and a flair for dramatic entries into battle. He joined the Anti-Anna Brigade alongside Kat and several others, but due to a supply snafu, he did not appear until later in the liberation campaign. Poly is a classic case of split personality syndrome; on the battlefield, he was formerly known as "The Emperor of Northern Ferox" due to his wild and vicious fighting style - which he pays homage to with the 'IV' on his coat - whereas off of the battlefield, his scatterbrained intellect allows him to be the ideal diversion specialist for the army, though he occasionally gets lost in the woods if he ventures too far in. He's known for being a great cook amongst his friends, though he is generally reluctant to showcase this side of himself. As a former Khan of Regna Ferox, Poly holds considerable influence amongst the Dreamers, but rarely acts serious in relation to missions due to his rather lackadaisical nature towards life in general. His family is considered a very touchy subject, as his parents were both high-ranking Grimleal priests from Ferox and his former wife, Sumia, was murdered and devoured by the Risen after an ambush led to the fall of Regna Ferox to the control of the Annas and their legions. His daughter, Cynthia, remains alive, and is currently travelling with Chrom and several other survivors in order to find a safe haven whilst the Dreamers attempt to purge the world of the Anna infestation. He has an eye for romance, at least where it concerns others, and often attempts to pair people in the army up with their comrades in order to promote chemistry (or something like that). Despite this, he has no eye for romance relating to himself now, since his wife was killed. He's also noted as the one who slayed the former Khan of Ferox, Basilio, in combat, though he claims it was out of respect for him as opposed to a grab for power. [spoiler=Ace Tactician]Name: Ace Tactician (or just Ace) class: Grandmaster Birthday May 1 Birthplace: ??? Last Known Residance: Ylisstol Castle Voice Actor: Wendee Lee Critical hit/skill activation quotes: "Keep your hand raised to the level of your eyes!" "Rest in ashes and dust!" "You can't stop Chaos" "My appearance means doom for you all!" Stats: HP: 80 Str: 39 Mag: 44 Skl: 37 Spd: 42 Lck: 45 Def: 39 Res: 42 Appearance: Long brown hair kept in a high ponytail with long side bangs, wears glasses. Wears the standard Grandmaster outfit but with a red sash around her waist. Has on her right hand, a brand consisting of a golden bird flying towards the rising dawn sun. Bio: A kind, cheerful and idealistic woman who is an expert with swords and magic tomes. She values friendship, honesty and loyalty. Ace was born with strange powers, although she had trouble controlling them until she was eighteen years old. Whenever Ace gets angry or upset, her normally brown eyes turn deep red and she becomes a formidable opponent in battle. She watched her best friend, Gaius die before her eyes by an Anna, and because of this awful tragedy, refuses to let anybody else that she considers a friend die. Due to slipping into an extreme grief fueled blind rage, Ace suffered from memory loss afterwards for a time. Due to spending time with the Azure Dreamers, Ace remembered that her best friend's name is Gaius and that she married Ylisse's Prince Chrom after defeating Mad King Gangrel and that she has a daughter, Lucina. And there were events that suggested Gaius might not have been dead after all, and that she was from an outrealm. Ever since meeting her twin sister, Alicia for the first time since being separated at birth Ace learned that Gaius was alive thanks to Alicia’s powers of Soul Judging. The two have since formed a close bond despite their separation for so long. Ace has since then become a bit protective when it comes to Alicia, even going to far as to pummel those who would hurt her, physically or mentally. She has also developed an aversion to watching people die, either by suicide or an enemy. Ace fights on for the day she can see her husband and daughter again, though after hearing what Alicia went through in life Ace also wishes for her twin’s sisters. happiness. Outside of battles, Ace can be found constantly studying to improve her skills and tactical prowess as to not lose her edge. The one most likely to lose her temper. Ace’s powers include: super strength when Chaos Mode is active, taking the form of either a bird or blue flames and empowering her allies by channeling her power into her friends. And occasionally dreaming about events. Tumultuous Arrangement's (AKA chaos mode) limitations is this: 1) Ace has to get angry at something, eg a foe or something the foe did. 2) There has to be enough chaos around her to tap into the skill, like a raging battlefield with lots of fighting and bloodshed. 3) There's also the risk of Ace losing her perception on who's a friend and who's a foe if she stays in Chaos Mode for too long since she hasn't mastered it yet. So Tumultuous Arrangement is purely a battle skill since it requires Chaotic energy to be used. [spoiler=Alicia Taylor]Name: Alicia Taylor (or just Alicia) Class: Grandmaster Birthday: May 1 Birthplace: ??? Last Known Residence: Somewhere in Eastern Ferox Voice Actor: Caitlin Glass Critical Hit/Skill Activation quotes: "Rulebreakers shall be punished!" "Your actions shall be your undoing!" "Your time on this plane has ended!" "Farewell." Dual Guard quotes: "Overruled!" and "Motion denied!" Stats: HP: 80 Str: 44 Mag: 40 Skl: 41 Spd: 37 Lck: 44 Def: 42 Res: 40 Appearance: Long brown hair with half in a bun and the other half down to her waist. Also wears glasses. Wears the standard Grandmaster outfit but with a blue sash. Also has on her left hand, a brand consisting of the morning sun rising over a blue set of scales. Bio: Ace Tactician's twin sister and the Heiress of Order, also skilled with blades and tomes. She was raised in Ferox by her uncle, an assassin known as ‘Twilight Jack Taylor’ who she referred to as Father in public to make everyone think she was his child. Alicia values honesty, order, friendship and written rules and regulations. Alicia used to come off as cold, logical and emotionless to most people, but now she's better about being herself around others. Alicia deeply cares about her twin sister, Poly and the friends she makes. Alicia being the Heiress of Order has the duty of guiding the souls of the deceased to their proper plane of existence, which means she is capable of reviving a select few people who are not ready to move on to the next plane of existence. Her powers include turning the vilest of evildoers into stone and the Risen since they are unnatural creatures, dismissing the bound souls inside Risen under the right conditions and empowering her allies. She can also cast magic without tomes, though doing so tires her out since it uses her own energy to power the spell. Her limitations are these: 1) Alicia's surroundings must be calm for her to use her powers, it can't be in the middle of a raging battle. 2) Alicia herself must be calm and collected. 3) For dismissing Risen, the souls used to create said Risen must be displaced from their proper plane. If no soul was used, this ability doesn't work. Also doesn't work if they are souls Alicia hasn't guided to the correct plane yet. Alicia as a child discovered she could sync with the emotions of others, given the proper environment and the person allowing her to peer inside. Though this ability was sought after by many people seeking answers their loved ones, leading to Alicia’s empathy power being abused for purposes without the best intentions in mind. Tired of being someone else’s tool, Alicia ran away and discovered a place where the planes of Earth, Heaven and Hell intersected, creating a neutral ground where secrets could not be concealed. It was also where the souls of the deceased would often gather before moving on. This place became Alicia’s safe haven where she often expressed her feelings, locked away from the outside world below her. When Alicia’s uncle died from walking into a trap set by his rival, she found out first when she encountered his spirit in the Neutral Ground. Alicia would later find out her crush was the one responsible for setting up her uncle’s demise. This added grief caused Alicia to become disillusioned with romantic relationships, and resulted in the young man being turned to stone. Even after taking over leadership of her uncle’s assassin group as ‘Emotionless Judge Taylor’ people still sought after her empathy powers, now even more so after being refuted to lack emotions of her own. Alicia fled to the Neutral Ground one night, frustrated over being used to solve other people’s relationship problems and inadvertently summoned her uncle’s soul from heaven. At his advice, Alicia resigned as leader of the assassin group and freely wandered around Ferox, Ylisse and Plegia as a freelance mercenary. Though years of having her empathy power used for other people’s personal gain rendered her unable to freely express her emotions around other people out of fear that her gift would be discovered, thus adopting a façade of being logical and stoic. Her only safe haven at that time was the Neutral Ground. After noticing the disappearance of many deceased souls from other planes, Alicia traced their disappearance to the very outrealm where she meet her twin sister for the first time since birth. It was in this same outrealm that she met and eventually fell in love with Polydeuces, the ruler of Regna Ferox, after seven years of believing she’d never love again. Alicia has since then decided that her true home is here by the side of the man she dearly loves, using her intellect to help the country prosper after the war. Outside of battles, Alicia is normally found reading books pertaining to legends, rare weapons and items and/or tactical strategy tomes. Has the best control of her emotions of the army. [spoiler=Crizix]HP 63 STR 21 MAG 42 SKL 35 SPD 40 LCK 43 DEF 20 RES 47 Bio: A modest, self-effacing girl that loves to help others when she can. She is very kind, but quiet and somewhat of a doormat. She values solitude, but is always happy to hang out with friends. The one who stutters most. She spent her childhood reading fiction and studying magic in a convent. As her "sisters" always spoke against violence, she started learning to use Staffs at a very early age, avoiding Tomes until she was fourteen. Even then, she had to train with her offensive magic in secret. After she was given Luna, her trusty steed, for her sixteenth birthday, she decided to travel around Yliesse to learn more about the world. However, the Annas started trying to wipe out humanity after some time, so she joined the fight against the unnatural family tree. Although she tends to shy away from everyone in the army, deep down she truly cares about them all.
