MasterMcDanil plays MIDNIGHT SUN

Recommended Posts

Hello Ladies and GentleGeeks to the super amazing MIDNIGHT SUN LETS PLAY BY MASTER MCDANIL SO MANY CAPS LOCK
reR7sNN.png
This is an amazing in-progress hack of Fire Emblem 8, the Sacred Stones, by our lord and savior Alfred Kamon! This hack was originally called Sunpath of Midnight (which is a pretty clunky name... and yet still super cool... hmmm), but got a total remake recently with some mug help from Arcfalchion. Set in a parallelish futurish version of Magvel, with some custom mugs, recolors, splices, custom animations, custom maps and lots of other cool stuff that I don't know about cause I'm going in blind. You can check out the progress of the hack at this link, and while you're at it, why not check out Arcfalchion's custom mugs and sprites here, at her deviantart page. :D (SPOILERS: They are flippin' awesome)

At the start of this LP, i'll be using version 1.2, which has 10 chapters, including Chapter 5x and the prologue! WOW SO MANY CHAPPPPTTTTERRRSSSS

Alright, here are links to each prelude, for those who want to catch up/start (some of them are the ending of the chapter before them, and THEN the chapter prelude):

Chapter 1

Chapter 2

Chapter 3

Chapter 4

Chapter 5

Chapter 5x

Chapter 6 (http://serenesforest.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=50861&page=4#entry3487227)

Um, I do not have the minimugs... so the dialogue will be written out in a script-like format. I WILL TRY to get the growths for each character, but this run will be mostly based off my own experience, so if I use a bad character... oh well. Tough luck for me, I suppose.

But enough lengthy chit-chat. Here it is..... THE PROLOGUE
VJY47RV.png

*Trumpet Fanfare*

THE PROLOGUE - PLOT AND PREPARATIONS

Narrararraartor: This is the continent of Magvel

vMJQqm9.png

N: the one of ancient tales and legends. It’s a parallel universe.

DUM DUM DUUUUUMMMM

Best explanation I’ve ever seen for not being able to hack the world map. (Although I think they’re working on it…. *tears of joy*)

N: Some centuries have passed since the War of the Stones and Magvel has quite changed. Of the 5 Sacred Stones, only one remained, and it contained the Demon King’s soul.

A hundred years passed and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar… and airbender named Aang…

N: Nations have been working hard to avoid conflicts and maintain an era of peace.

2sg2UnF.png

I’m cool with this recolor, and I like the name of the region. Sounds vaguely Japanese…

LlISjXd.png

mxdUpTs.png

Alright. Hold the phone. HOLD THE PHONE. TURN THE DAMN THING OFF

This guy… This guy is super super super cool. Maybe he’s a splice, maybe not. WHO CARES. LOOK AT THAT CHISELED JAW. THE EMOTION IN HIS EYES. Seriously, I really hope he shows up later, he’s like a fancy Amon.

5hfaXSd.png

Don’t know if plot detail… or no mug. Hmmmm

DTWBMbb.png

LlgCZ9R.png

Like the Greek name… but not the recolor. Caellach just doesn’t work for me here, even if it is a lawless place. :/

N: In these times of peace, tales of past conflict have drifted into legend… but one person in particular is destined to carry the wicked weight of the past. This is the story of that person… the princess of Hoikade. After some unfortunate events, she found herself lighting the flames of a war. The conflict spread quickly.

GgsHQ23.png

N: Even the ever-peaceful lazulis was involved in the end. Whose fault was this? Hoikade’s?

O2kJChjl.png

N: Is that everyone, from all sides, lost precious comrades and friends.

y4AcAjql.png

I like this mug too, she looks very….. peaceful. And pretty. And probably a light mage or dancer of some sort. CALLING IT NOW

N: And so this chain of hatred finally…

eM60Gycl.png

SPOILSPORT.

This is one thing that’s a bit off for me about this hack, sometimes there’s weirdly placed humor, or jokes that don’t fit in with the style… still funny, but something just feels a tad off about them. Just my thoughts on the matter.

N: Why don’t you find out what happened for yourself? Ready?

N: OK, then. It all began when…

VJY47RVl.png

Phew. Finally to the actual chapter. All that world-building.... man. It was pretty swell. Yet tiring. As it should be. Short sentences.

OYzjb88l.png

Moonie: It's a great honour being one, Fa. I've told you many times.

What? Fa? Like the dragon? IS SHE A DRAGON?! MANAKETE LORD

Moonie: After the War of the Stones, the soul of the Demon King had been sealed in the stone of the holy country Pylum.

(read: Rausten=Pylum)

Moonie: However, the stone alone couldn't endure that tremendous pressure, and soon scholars started to seek a way to avert a new catastrophe. Eventually the found that is was possible to the contain the King's terrible power.... within a human body.

ZqRwV3Dl.png

WHOA so.... they purposefully put Formotiis (or whatever) into someone's body? Like... Lyon. Except on purpose. hmmmmmm

Fa: Tsk, is it necessary to tell this tale every single time?

Moonie: Since it seems clear that you don't understand your position, yes.

Fa: Oh, come on! Maybe I'm just--

91np9u2l.png

Aww, Motherly affection. So awdowable.

Bzh0TUXl.png

Moonie: Please don't forget this, and try to follow Alvano's teachings more.

Fa: ... Yes. ... As you wish.

Princess Bride. Calling it now. The Dread Pirate is actually Westley.

3P43ESWl.png19tb4yrl.pngfAKGn3Nl.png

Is this a game show? Wheel of Demon King Possession?

Fa leaves the area, but not before showing us her class. A shamanish person it seems?

lBYgUvYl.png

Fa: I'm either the "Demon King's Vassal" or the "Princess"! It's always like this! Why can't I be treated like a normal person?

Somebody has got a bad case of Princess Jasmine Syndrome...

Fa: I mean, Moonie says I'm lucky and she may be right... But damn, how heavy is this "luck" of mine...

aCLokBil.png

I realize I never commented on her mug. I like it. It seems a bit splicy, but her outfit is really cool. I like the red and yellow (OF COMMUNISM)

Fa: Why isn't there anyone here?

ZNRZ9U4l.png

Fa: Oh, a soldier. Hey there! Do you know why--

Mean Green Machine: D-Die...

Fa: What?!

MGM: D-Die!!

jscfeZYl.png

AHHHHHHHH A CLOSE ONE

nOiUfXMl.png

Oh wait. He doubles with a 73 and misses twice. Must be scripted. Whew.

Fa: Whoa whoa whoa, the hell are you doing!?

Mean Red Machine: P-Princess...K-kill the princess

BPVeD1ol.png

Well no shit Sherlock.

MRM: D-Die..

Fa: Ugh, stay back! I can't kill my own people!

???: Don't touch her!

LLSUhIAl.png

AH UNNECESSARY CRIT

Y7AIRhsl.png

Hmm.... something's just... off about his mug. It's still nice and all but I'm not a fan.

Fa: I-I am, but...This soldier... You killed him.

Cause he was RED. Can't you see?! Red people are bad. Always. Unless you can recruit them.

Fa: What's happening here? And why... Why do you have red eyes like mine?

RED IS ALWAYS BAD KILL THEM NOW

Fa: Only descendants of Hoikade's royal family possess those eyes. Who are you?

Hoodlum: I'm sorry, but we don't have time to chat now. You must flee.

Fa: What? But why?

Hoodlum: Listen, just trust me--

LYIXdprl.png

There is something oddly sexual about this...

Fa: That's Master Alvano's voice!

Hoodlum: Shit!

Language!

Fa: Hey, where are you going? He disappeared... just what kind of sorcery is this?

Vul3I66l.png

We get to see here that her "Master" (if you catch my drift, wink wink), is a shaman.

Fa: Master Alvano! I'm here!

Ikokk7Hl.png

I think I've seen this guy before... regardless he's a much better hoodlum than that other loser. Also... he's green. An ally! Great.

Fa: Master! Thank God you're here, now!

God? Does that even exist in Magvel?

Fa: Something strange is happening here, you have to help me!

Alvano: Yes, it's strange indeed... where is everyone?

Fa: That's the point! There was only a soldier here when I arrived and--

8gul0yTl.png

WHAT

Fa: What? How?

(the dead body on the ground? Maybe?)

Alvano: The curse I cast upon him has disappeared. I wanted to see if everything was going according to plan. As I suspected, he's dead, and the others aren't here yet.

h0chIAIl.png

I could say the same thing.

Alvano: I'm not your Master any more, Milady. Please forgive me.

Off-screen smexy voice: Alvano!!

Alvano: Here they are.

af2vpk7l.png

Are they? Where, exactly? In this country? Or just from disease?

Alvano: What did you say!?

Fa: Ah!

zf2ZAxXl.png

TWO CRITS IN A ROW IS THIS GUY A SWORDMASTER

Hoodlum: I'm sorry to have kept you waiting, Vassal. I was busy killing off some of the people this man brainwashed.

Alvano: What? You did--

Fa: YOU DID WHAT!? You're killing MY soldiers in MY castle? Are you INSANE?

oVBXdLjl.png

Ummmm...... this is awkward.

Hoodlum: That's none of your business.

Fa: Plan? What are you talking about?

Hoodlum: I have already told you we don't have any time to talk, Vassal.

Alvano: A single knight won't change you fate Lady Faratrass. You're only the shell of a being that trascends (sic) mere humans.

I know we heard it before... Faratrass? Sounds like Sassafrass. Which is a good thing. I think.

Alvano: A being that doesn't belong to you!

Fa: Just what's going on? I must talk to them! T-There must be some sort of understanding!

Hoodlum: Clear your mind!

Search you feelings Fa, you know it to be true.

Hoodlum: These soldiers want to kill you, don't you realise that? You should at least fight back!

Fa: Are you mad? These are my people!

h49SUe4l.png

Nope. Ethics are useless.

Hoodlum: I'll deal with the elite soldiers coming from over there, all right? You go to your "Master" and have a nice little chat with him. Now fight back or get killed, it's up to you.

RbIQRHbl.png

Blink frame or sadness? Who knows anymore...

jRHFJf2l.png

AND WE'RE FINALLY HERE, TIME TO GET SOME ACTION

Next Time: Killing helpless brainwashed people!

I know I'm going to enjoy this one... heeehehehehe

but the games not done yet

Yeah, but I couldn't wait to do my first LP, plus this game just looks awesome. Lot's of LPs do unfinished games so... yeah. :D

Hello again, Ladies and Gentlegeeks, and prepare yourself for

THE PROLOGUE - KILL THE INNOCENTS

Alright, Sassafrass is BACK IN ACTION! but before we start to take out the poor brainwashed dudes, let's see some stats, shall we?

BtXfAUvl.pnglEqqTBEl.png9TVB8fPl.pngveTXGo3l.png

WHOA IS THAT COOL. And not, I'm not talking about the stats. Alfred and the team decided to redo ALL the backgrounds, and most of the icons, and let me tell you... they are AWESOME. If you look closely, you can see that the Affin icon has been changed, along with the more obvious Fancy-dancy background.

Onto our mysterious hoodlum, he's got decent stats for a pre-promote. He's got a new class too, Warp Knight, that allows him to wield cool swords and schtuff. He comes with weapons appropriate to wreck shop with, and he is this games CRUTCH character. I have played to the third chapter at the time of this writing, and I will say that he reminds me of Seth. Both start out alright, and have decent enough growths to keep them in your team. ANYWAYS MOVING ON

(also, sorry for the wall of pictures, I like to show off everything. :D)

yVozPGUl.pngFaPRCGul.pngo0J8CSrl.pngpJqWnprl.pnggMQQqvnl.png

This is our main lord. She's a dark mage. A DARK MAGE. Pretty cool. Now, I'm no analyst, but by looking at those stats, i'd say she's pretty well off! 8 MAGIC? WHAAAATTTT?!

Pretty much, from what I've heard and seen, Sassafrass can become a great unit in terms of Magic, Defense, and Speed. And what else do you need? Plus, she seems to gain XP really, really quickly, so she is a surefire choice any day of the week!

She also comes with two new tomes, (I show off Umbra later). Oblumbra is a dark magic Rapier. Pretty nice.

uSaUItJl.png

Oh! Guess not. It's really just a renamed flux tome... but it's cool nonetheless. Plus, Umbra is just a cool word. (Oh, and 1 less Wt. and Mt. hmmmm Nice.)

IrpHTy6l.pngTFOkclFl.png

The enemies in this chapter are mostly pushovers, even this guy. He's really, really not that tough if you sit on a pillar. (how does that even work?)

bC0F4Dcl.png

Alright, so first turn I move Fa down to this pillar. She has a short convo with the enemies...

6JpdUwOl.pngnWG27EQl.pngdZ3Jtt6l.pngdT4h0mgl.png

Ugh.... I just hate this!

In a good way. Leaving her no way out puts our main character into a hopeless situation from the start, and we really feel terrible for Fa. As the levels go on, this just gets worse... But that can wait. For now, let's kill some innocents and feel guilty!

FPzv0cxl.png

Fa easily takes out the bottom enemies blah blah blah, stuff happens...

(AKA I lost screenshots)

BUT EVENTUALLY THIS HAPPENS

xecXgJnl.png

DAMN. Better restart...

DfDrqJTl.pngaCwA12ql.png

Nevermind.

I actually like the decision to keep Hoodlum as a green unit, as it gives us more time to focus on Fa. On the downside, if he gets RNG screwed, and gets beat up by the enemies, he can make your life a lot harder. Those "Elite units" (Who Fa can either one-shot or double) will start to swarm from the top, and then you are DONE.

WC8sapSl.png

With the initial guys gone, I start to head downwards...

j7PDAEEl.png

FA WHAT IS THIS

ir723gSl.png

Now I have to waste a valuable Tonic due to YOUR FAILURES

3DFjXxQl.png

HE MOVES AGGGHHHHHH Better restart....

IJYv0e1l.png

Fa has a really lengthy convo with Alvano....

Alvano: I'm not your master Fa, I never have been.

Fa: But why? Why did you decieve me? Why are you trying to kill me, Alvano? All the time we spent together, learning how to control the Demon... Was it all meaningless to you, Alvano? I thought you cared about me, about the Vassal.

Alvano: Please, stop. What's done is done. Let's see if I had taught you well, Milady.

b1adpOZl.png

I like how Alvano seems to be doing this against his will... it makes the whole scene so much more tragic...

uaIzZOLl.png

Fa gains her first level, and it's a goodie!

qlq9Uz0l.png6WiIgYRl.pngZVvLn6al.png

She murders some dudes as the Elite warriors climb ever downward....

hxK9A49l.pngh7EcYOkl.png

HA STUPID BRAINWASHING TWERP

SMdYSc7l.pngl0kuuuRl.png

Well dang. Guess it was all for Naught. I really like how his coloring is green, like an ally, but Fa's is red, like an enemy. Puts stuff in perspective.

2X5Ft9Zl.png

Fa gains a GREAT LEVEL. Now all we need is some skill.... to counter the weight....

TUNE IN NEXT TIME FOR RUNNING

I really enjoyed this chapter. It's frantic, the pacing is good, and characters are introduced well. Plus, Fa's sadness is totally believeable. THUMBS UP

Finally, Ladies and Gentlegeeks, the ending of the Prologue!

So here it is:

THE PROLOGUE - FEELING REALLY GUILTY

hlwbtUC.png

Hoodlum: ...

Fa: This is insane.... Those soldiers did nothing wrong. They were just controlled. Yet I...

See, this is really interesting. Alfred said in a post that Fa is struggling with the Demon King, which causes her to be aggressive and irrational. It does a good job of explaining some of her emotions throughout the game, and really gives her great character depth. Alfred also called her a lunatic... now I don't know that description is still current but.... hey. Interesting stuff.

Fa: Haaah.... Master Alvano, why...

Hoodlum: ... I could explain (to) you (sic) what I know, but that can wait until later. Right now, I have to escort you out of this place.

Fa: What? But why?

R700Lnr.png

Aha! Like... in the intro! I geddit now!

Fa: It doesn't make any sense. Alvano is dead, and even if I won't ever know what he was scheming, he won't have the chance to hurt Hoikade any more than he already did.

x2tOgiM.png

Fa: I'll just have to explain to Queen Moonie what happened today. Just wait and see.

Hoodlum: ... Umh, as you wish.

Fa: There he goes again...Well I have to find Moonie. Oh? Thank the Gods! This soldier isn't brainwashed.

Scared Green Machine: Stay back, you monster!

Fa: Uh?

SGM: EVERYONE! I'VE FOUND HER!!

8nrig4z.png1Me9uwU.png03Hkjmf.png

THE GUILT!!! YOU KILLED HER BROTHER

YOU MONSTER

YOU TRAITOR

WOW

Fa: P-Please stop, I.... Ah! Moonie! Please, listen to me....

Moonie: ...Why did this have to happen, Fa?

Fa: Those men were brainwashed by Master Alvano and tried to kill me. I didn't have any choice, I was just defending myself! You know very well that if I die, the Demon King will resurrect!

ll4S3ms.pngDgSWgr3.pnglk13fYE.png

Hmmm.... that any cost part seems a bit out of character... It feels like she's trying to justify her actions, even if she WAS wrong.

Moonie: SILENCE! Faratrass, Alvano was a strong mage, but he couldn't have controlled all those people at once. It was far beyond his limits. Which means that... You're lying, Fa.

nwtQQRg.png

Moonie: It has happened once before, during the War of the Stones.

veVXwW8.png

Oh yeah! Parallel universe Lyon! So, it seems like that progressed pretty much the same way...

Fa: No, you're wrong! How could you even think something like that, Moonie!?

Moonie: Fa... I'm sorry. But I know that the Faratrass would have agreed with my choices. Soldiers! Capture her alive!

We'll find a new host for the Demon and transfer his soul from Fa to him!

Fa: Are you serious!? That process would kill me! And we still haven't found anyone else who could be the Vassal!

xoojdAl.png

Fa: You must be kidding me! That child isn't strong enough to endure this sort of power!

Moonie: People! Don't be fooled by the Demon's words! She is not our beloved Vassal anymore...

k14SC7q.png

This.... I like this. All these green characters suddenly turning red.... very interesting.

DID THEY HAVE CANS OF SPRAY PAINT? HOW DOES IT WORK

Fa: No... It can't be...

tdzpR2H.png

Fa: Haaaaah.... Y-Yes...

H02ZaAd.png

AND THATS ALL SHE WROTE

Next time: Feel even more guilty! Also, creazy religious people.

Sorry for the shortness, I'll space em out better in the future.

EDIT:

Here are our first character growths!!! (I hate saying our are. Makes me wish I was british, so I could say Ouuwer are without being laughed at.)

Faratrass

Class: Lord (Dark Mage)

HP: 85%

MAG: 60%

SKL: 40%

SPD: 35%

LUCK: 60%

DEF: 50%

RES: 25%

Hmmm... my expert analysis tells me that... Fa will usually end up being a hard hitting Magic unit. She can dish out TONS of punishment, and is a real physical tank with that high Def and Luck growths. However, her low Skill and Res may prove problematic, and her speed is tied for lowest of the lords with Hector.

Actually.... she and Hector have incredibly similar growths.... IS THIS AN AXE DARK MAGIC LORD??

Sorry for the lack of Updates guys! I lost my screenshot when my hard drive crashed. Luckily I was on the Prologue, so I'll only have a few level-ups to show here. I'll edit them in when I get finished.

:'( Sorry for the wait....

I SUCK AT TECHNOLOGY

EDIT: HERES THE NEW LEVELS

EO0RJbQ.png8og9rMA.png

Just showing off how Fa can One-Shot these Armors, and double the Steel Lance luzers.

RG1HdO1.pnglCblA5r.png

An EHHHHHH level waitaminuteshe got res and no luck?! And a much better level SPEED AND RES?!!

kr5GV0a.png

Oops. Killed em all.

pUZjlRC.pngAE7EfOd.png

Another EH level, and a pretty nice one. That's my Sassafrass.

To compare our leading lady at the end of the Prologue in the two playthroughs...

2X5Ft9Zl.png

FIRST ONE

AE7EfOd.png

SECOND ONE

Holy crap! Two levels higher..... and not a lot to show for it. :/ She's actually BEHIND a point in speed.

PICK UP THE PACE FA

HELLLLLOOOOOO LADIES AND GENTLEGEEKS TO

MIDNIGHT SUN CHAPTER 1 - THE PURSUIT

(sorry for weirdly timed posts/double posting. Still new to all this.)

Uczz8yIl.png

Hoodlum: You look shaken. Are you still thinking about what happened earlier?

Fa: ...Yeah.

H: They might be following us. You have to be prepared to fight them again, if necessary

Uczz8yIl.png

H: Lady Faratrass?

F: I-I know, okay!? It's just... killing is something I'm not accustomed to, especially if the ones I kill are my own people.

9jDlqQOl.png

Yeah you have, dickface. Tromping around, killing everybody. WHO EVEN ARE YOU, UNNAMED STRANGER?!

F: No, it's okay. There is no time for hard feelings, after all.

MIudAvdl.pngooVqBxRl.png

It's interesting what roles Fa played in the Hoikade government. It kinda... changes randomly throughout the hack, but it's cool to see she took an interest in the military.

F: Moonie surely sent them after us. To think that that idea of mine would be turned against me...

Xuc6krcl.png

It's like getting killed by an Ambulance!

H: ...Mmmh... This could also be used to our advantage. Since you're the Vassal, you should know your troops in detail, right?

F: Yes, and this squad sent after us has a solid formation. In fact, for this kind of operation, quality is preferred over quantity.

This is where Alfred introduces a new gameplay element that is both good and bad... :/ Well, just look.

VkSPWocl.pngVVty4I3l.png

This first one is relatively simple, but in later chapters, the RED TEXT are hints on how to beat a chapter, or recruit a character, or get an item and so on. It's really cool, seeing as how this hack has some VERY unorthodox ways of doing those things, but it does feel like a bit of hand-holding. I'll always make sure to post the red text though...

BECAUSE RED IS BAD! IT'S EVIL KILL IT

c7POwPtl.pngoDc45RZl.png

Finally a lord with tactical skill

H: It's well thought out indeed. How can we deal with them?

F: I'll think of something. We should hide in this forest in the meantime.

H: Mmh, I have an idea. Maybe we could--

80mBm2kl.png

Yeahhhhh! How do I know you're not a bad guy, huh?!

XOyKJgWl.png

Oh, like the old Greek Sun God (before Apollo). I get it... mysterious dark man, Sun God. Perfect sense. XD

BlU3uNhl.png

You tell him! Good argument.

Hellios: Well then, let's go. We don't have time to waste

yg370ZJl.pngqhnJg97l.png

First off... Hood- I mean, Hellios, can finally gain experience! And guess what.... he lost his silver sword. *facepalm*

What'd you do, drop it by accident, you scruffy nerf-herder?

XFIYrHgl.png

Well... the map is empty... I assume they'll show up later.

I'll show off the stats and such when they appear.

NEXT TIME....

pesKKWFl.png

EXTREME FADE-OUTS!

I am realy grateful for the red text, but what do you, lovely readers think of it? More will show up eventually... it's like a little helpful tutorial.

HELLO AGAIN Ladies and Gentlegeeks, and welcome tooooooooo

MIDNIGHT SUN CHAPTER 1 - Cristoph is a bad unit McDanil is bad at Fire Emblem

Alright, so where we last left off....

nfEZFDol.png9wCzVjEl.png

There was nobody around (which is a nice touch) and we're running away. Good times.

As you can see in the pictures, there are two house. Alfred made the hated cool decision to have any house give you items soo.....

E7YGQgDl.pngOTQMr98l.png

After trading Hellios' Elixir to Fa to replace her lost Tonic, I send him off to the houses. Sassafrass is pretty strong, she can take care of herself. Also, Hellios is a prepromote so I dont want to use him.

3G3cI9zl.png

Second Enemy phase, three Wyvern dudes show up on the NorthEast mountain.

Generic Wyvern (who's not really a generic sort of): The Vassal has always been so nice to us soldiers. Is this the right thing to do? What if she really is innocent?

VxZ9xQal.pngNoF1dN3l.png

AH! IT'S THE BOSS WE HAVE TO DEFEAT HIM

EVENTUALLY

GWWNRAGSO: I-I'm really sorry! I'll fulfill my duty, no matter what!

Ramov: Relax. I can understand you anxiety. We're all feeling the same. However, you must not forget that we're soldier of Hoikade.

NpWUJRTl.png

Yeah, that traitorous witch! But, I see where he's coming from. Loyalty to country, over one specific person. It's a dilemna.

R: We can't disappoint her. We don't have the right to...

XoFyxlnl.png

GWWNRAGSO: ... I understand, Corporal. My apologies for before, I won't forget my duty again.

jawwTcWl.png

Hellios: Yeah.

F: It's important that we defeat those wyvern riders quickly.

H: That's what I was going to suggest to you.

ANNNNNNDDDDD TIME TO START THE BATTLING

First up... some stats.

7wYqyJnl.pngDnrtIGRl.pngxr946sXl.png

A cool thing in this patch is that Wyvern Riders can use Lances and Axes, even though Ramov doesn't have one. We should be able to take him out with Fa, but sending in Hellios could be a problem due to that Horseslayer....

ZwjQyrYl.png

I think this is turn 3... Hellios is nearing those houses.

ET75NVdl.png

AHA I knew he wasn't THAT generic. Actually... this conversation is kind of heartbreaking... :'(

F: Do we have to fight, soldier?

GWWNRAGSO: S-Shut up! I know it's the Demon who's talking! Princess, if you can hear me, please forgive me!

0rifrmBl.png

GWWNRAGSO: You've been a great Vassal.

F: I guess you won't believe anything I say. Bring it on, Great soldier.

GWWNRAGSO: Haah, don't try to confuse me, you Demon! For the Queen!

52R5Mvxl.png

In the name of the miss, the crit, and the Holy RNG... AMEN

d6dNJsTl.png

Dang... but the second knight hits. Forget what I just said.

rmrDvQyl.png

Two more pop up by the boss, who hasn't moved.

F: There shouldn't be more... I don't know if we can endure all of them at this rate, though.

H: Mmh, it looks like I'll have to use it.

AHHHHHH WHITE SCREEN FLASH

SEIZURE SEIZURE

WHY ISNT THERE A...

oh. nevermind

TwNvreRl.png

Whoa! What is this new item?

F: Whoa, Hellios! Where did that sword come from?

qHGhjrGl.png

H:That's how I managed to avoid the security back in the castle. Also, this sword is a bit special.

z2wPK5pl.png

H: Just watch and see.

I just feel bad for the dimension where a sword blade just stabs out of nowhere!

AjtQ3AKl.png

Rather than show off his new sword, Hellios visits the house. WHICH PLAYS ZELDA HOUSE MUSIC

Thank you Alfred... I love you for always. <3

Spawn of the Devil: You're a soldier, aren't you? There are some Hoikadian troops out there, you must be with them. Here, take this. I don't know what you're fighting for, but as an (sic) Hoikadian I'll support you.

YyCqLc4l.png

Oh, mistaken gifts. This will be useful for Eirka!

... oh wait.

GG77w3Nl.png

Bless the great RNG gods! Not that it really matters... but still.

Also, it took me this long to realize that enemy attack music is Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories boss music!

Thank you Alfred... I love you for always forever <3 <3

oJhGZLal.png

Ah yes... Alfred changed some weapon descriptions, just for the hell of it. This is one of my favorites.

ALSO SCIENCE

8A4uToKl.png

Can't touch this. Dumdumdum dum... dum dum. CANT TOUCH THIS

knKPJVzl.png

Beautiful. Just beautiful. Could you maybe get some speed, Sassafrass?

4sccK9yl.png

Oh hey. Those Cavaliers we heard about.

F: There they are! Hellios, listen, I've got a plan!

H: Tell me Vassal.

rM1H4f7l.pngbA0hGlpl.png29RuPmzl.png

H: Now, that's strategy!

Asshole

H: Good job, Vassal. That's why we had to get rid of the wyverns as soon as possible. Since they can fly, they'd have crossed the river and flanked us.

F: Yes, that's it. Let's be sure there aren't any more.

yDQ5zdyl.png

H: We have to consider any strategy that could bring us victory.

Just some Over-explained examples of how to win. Nice, but kind of unnecessary.

zg6FJk5l.png

I'm not scared! I just have a premonition that something is going to happen in this direction.

xhOIRDFl.png

Hellios visits the second house. Obviously.

Yo Mama: We don't recieve visitors very often, you know? Do you want some tea?

H: T-thank you, but I'm in the middle of a fight....

YM: I've heard that there are a lot of wolves around here lately. Here, take this then. It'll help you if you get hurt.

9fykje6l.png

YAY. To replace the 5 Tonic uses I wasted in the last chapter.

9USLlTbl.png

Had to happen sometime.

u9QY2Bxl.png

See, normally I'd be happy with Defense.. but LOOK AT IT

Res though, that's nice.

VQhpTTVl.png

Ug. They never stop.

H: Tch, they keep coming. I wonder if just the two of us'll be able to get through all of them.

Hmmmm... I WONDER

7WCmnjpl.png

AN ARCHER AND A FIGHTER. Who woulda thunk it. Thank god too, I don't know if I could have taken Ramov by myself.

Handsome German: The Hoikadians have invaded Magnolia, lead by the Vassal! Evil scum.

Christmas Eyes: I don't know Cristoph. Their behavior is confusing.

Cristoph: Please, Rya! Don't be blinded by demonic tricks! Those are the Devil's bloody agents! The vassal conduced (conducted) her evil forces here just to ruin our beloved natioN!

qi2rVV6l.png

Rya: Whater the reasons, it doesn't matter right now. We'll wipe these few troops out and report the situation for the empress.

C: So it's time for some blood! God wouldn't like this, Rya.

pPUUbT5l.png

Oh great. Psychopathic Religious dude. Wonderful.

Also, interesting to note that their does seem to be some sort of Monotheistic religion along with perhaps a polytheistic one. I want to know more...

C: I'm sure He'll forgive me if I say a little prayer before fighting.

Pjjrjnrl.png

Oh, so they're both violent.

C: Please, dear God, forgive me for the lives I shall take. I and my axe will dedicate you a dance of blood and grace.

xStUVUhl.png

Me neither. I'm scared. Thank goodness they're greenies.

R: Let's move.

C: ... Amen.

STATSCREEN DUMPS

n3cOBzXl.pngIlkdOkYl.png

Warp sword is cool.. I'll show it off in a bit.

Also, another funny description.

gvkVCVtl.pngR6RzPvil.png

Eh. Average fighter. I've never been a fan of Axe users... so he'll probably get dropped eventually. Decent stats, I suppose...

DrRJThPl.pngm8PsJkEl.pngVVP5ZBOl.pngG5kYeuol.png

Here's another custom class! The lightningrod is affected by resistance. She's a decent enough archer as well. 5 def is pretty good for her, so she'll be seeing some use.

A4ec0ZOl.png

WARP SWORD

I don't do this, I want to save the sword... but it's SO COOL. I love the animation.

8dfK3bBl.png

NO WAIT UNTIL AFTER I RECRUIT YOU

Vl4B5Zal.png

Fa can talk to Rya... wonder how this will go.

F: And even if I was?

R: I'm Princess Rya of Magnolia. Your armed troops crossed Magnolia's borders, meaing you have violated Lord Ohm's treaty of 892, which granted mutual aid between our countries.

F: This is Magnolia's territory!? Just what--

FPWPZXHl.png

Yes, please do insult this heavily armed Princess.

Mm2FGdhl.png

DUH

R: What did you say!?

2d7J6zZl.png

Fa... *facepalm*

Insult her hair. YES good plan.

F: I said that those Hoikadians are trying to capture me.

R: That's absurd. Why'd Hoikade fight it's own princess?

K6VHI6hl.png

YOU CANT HANDLE THE TRUTH

F: I just have to fight them, even if I don't want to. I don't have any choice.

R; I see. But Magnolia won't tolerate any infringements of the old pacts. What happened in Hoikade isn't out business. You must leave. Now.

F: I've a better idea. ... Since we both want to get rid of these soldier, Iet's fight together.

lgUaowql.png

oooooo Political ramifications oooooo

R: But beware: If you lied about your true intention, I'll be the one wanting your head.

F: Heh that's fine with me.

R: Let's go then.

Yeah right, Rya. You couldn't beat Fa, please.

33h5Ceql.png

Told ya.

R: Cristoph.

2kV8E7Vl.pngPXpexcPl.png

R: That's right. Be ready.

bKSasdXl.png90zYMhAl.png

C: Here I come!

*facepalm*

X6npqn9l.png

Cristoph doesn't do so well his first turn...

IRwZ402l.png

Rya does much better. She has this cool animation that is really cool and lightning and stuff. Check it out.

swAHpGAl.png

He drops an Iron Axe, which we give to Cris along with a Tonic.

He heals, and then suddenly.....

p1TxzWll.png

THE LAST WAVE

Shamans and a cavalier...

BUT IT DOESNT MATTER BECAUSE.....

nkzhPlel.png87gpvgZl.png

This is why I don't use Fighters.

Some savestates later...

ur9JoC5l.png

And he makes it.

Anyways, Fa says something...

ZXC59wFl.png

F: That should be the Last platoon. Just one last effort...

R: This outcome... is a total disaster. Is this our punishment for having gone against the Demon King?

UMO7MhUl.png

Man... I don't know. I'm so sorry...

R: ... It doesn't matter anymore. All I have to do now is join my men down there.

36cvy3jl.png

Valiant to the end.

He moves over the North West of the Map, to flank you, should you have crossed the bridge. I didn't.

5PY34kll.png

Here's our setup.

1DYHZU1l.png

Dat RNG though.

9Cs4Ca9l.png

Cristoph... get outta there.

aqap5fBl.png

Ugh... fighters.

i44VoYJl.png

La la la... RNG GODS REJOICE

6HKEHSwl.png1IBfDD6l.png

I take it all back.

Eh...

Oh wait... NO I WASN'T PAYING ATTENTION

Good dodge! Maybe I figured it out!

7lfDGqEl.png

*snaps GBA in half if I was playing on a GBA*

AaPFiAol.png

I mean.. IT HITS!

bmwLpywl.png

*grinds GBA into a fine powder*

Fa has a convo too...

MFg8C14l.png1PAI1Wkl.png

There's a piece missing, but he calls the Demon King pathetic for using Fa as a shield.

ANYWAYS WE WON

It was rough.. this hack is either harder than I anticipated, or I just suck.

NEXT TIME- CHAPTER 1 CONCLUSION - O, Brother where art thou?

Whew. Did it.

Growths for the characters....

HELLIOS

HP: 80

STR: 45

SKL: 50

SPD: 40

LUCK: 40

DEF: 30

RES: 45

His growths are really solid. He's not just a crutch character, he can be an important member of your team as well! I still try to avoid using him, as he probably won't cap anything. That said, I'm doing this blind so I have NO IDEA what his averages are.

RYA

HP:

STR: 35

SKL: 60

SPD: 55

LUCK: 35

DEF: 28

RES: 42

I dunno. I really like her so far. High skl and spd, and a pretty good res stat, added to pretty fine bases for an archer, and you've got yourself a unit. Add in the fact that she can use Magic Bows, and suddenly that 35 strength doesnt look too bad. Heck, it's higher than most myrmidons...

CRISTOPH

HP: 80

STR: 50

SKL: 35

SPD: 45

LUCK: 45

DEF: 30
RES: 25

Yes, yes. His growths are solid. 50 strength is never a bad thing, and 45 spd?! Wow. But the fact that he is SO incredibly squishy, and usually inaccurate.. he is a good Axe user, I just personally don't like him. His character though... XD

On the whole "Use Pre-Promotes or Not" discussion, I've always felt that prepromotes are an experience hog. From the first time I played the game... until now, when I'm playing hacks, prepormotes always end up the bench. Why use Duessel when a Great Knight Amelia will hit her caps more often?

The best way to illustrate WHY I use underleveled units is to show it. It is more evident in Pent's Average Stats, and in Nino's Average Stats. Why use Pent and waste experience on someone who won't reach their true potential... when Nino will CONSISTENTLY be better them him at Lv. 1 Sage? Plus, the EXP that you use on Pent in the chapters before Nino shows up could be used SO much better on other low level characters.

Of course, there ARE exceptions to the rule. But as a rule of thumb for me.. I don't use PrePromotes. XD NAILED IT

Anyways....

HELLO AGAIN LADIES AND GENTLEGEEKS TOOOOOOO

MIDNIGHT SUN CHAPTER 1 CONCLUSION - TEXT DUMP

ySlEi7k.png

F:.....

H: Lady Faratrass? Are you okay? You look so pale...

F: I don't think I'll ever get accustomed to this, it's just... too much. Those idiots... why did they have to act like that? I can't just sit here and let them be, but...

pX0LRsO.png348RgvN.png

Fa... you ask the toughest questions. See.... random rant right now... (kinda)

When I was looking through the Midnight Sun forum, a lot of people were telling Alfred "Story is not that important, gameplay is everything", to a certain extent. And while that is true, I would prefer to play a game with a great story and great characters, over mind-blowing gameplay. Sacred Stones is a an example. I'd rather play FE7, even though Sacred Stones has more classes, better weapons, and smoother gameplay, because FE8's plot is pretty weak.

What I'm saying here, is that the gameplay is pretty darn good. Maybe not perfect, or innovative... but it's a really fun game. What really pulls me in is little conversations like this, where Faratrass is questioning her entire quest, and even considering her own death to stop the deaths of others. It's heartbreaking really, and it gives her character a depth that I have NEVER felt in a Fire Emblem game, except maybe for Hector and his brother's relationship. ( I always though was really well written)

H: If you get caught you'll die, Vassal.

QGDyvgX.png

More depth.

H:The Demon King't power is far beyond our imagination

F: ....

cVT8lQK.png

Rya: Did you forget about us?

F: ... You. You said you're the princess of Magnolia, right?... Thank you for your help.

C: T-That's most certainly one of her demonic tricks!

HHnNdPt.png

*facepalm*

F: Is he another enemy?

R: No, he's just a numskull, but he's an ally of ours.

MmEgFWE.png

R: Despite the circumstances, you still are Hoikade's princess and you must represent your country's motivations.

F: I understand your point of view. However, I formally ask to talk to the empress herself about my situation.

te5mj2F.png

ITS A TRAP

R: Very well. I'll escort you to Magnolia Palace.

C: sigh.

eZfrzRw.png

So, I heard that Alfred is working a new Map Screen. That would be cool... because I feel that the fact that the world is Magvel takes away from the terrific world-building.

NARARARTATARTARTATOR: Still shocked and heartbroken by her new circumstances, she decides to ask help of the Empress of Magnolia, the nearby country which has always been Hoikade's ally.

zcIIUWM.png

Gen: Princess Rya, Sir Cristoph, welcome back. The empress will receive you soon.

R: Thank you. You're dismissed. Cristoph.

C: Yes, Milady?

kurdmVI.png

Classic Cristoph. What a complete and utter douchebag.

C: I’m sorry, Rya, but I can’t trust her. I can’t respect someone gifted with a power she can’t even control. You heard those Hoikadian soldiers, didn’t you? She may be—

R: watch your tongue and be smarter!

tcB8Gqb.pngswetWiL.png

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_burn_centers_in_the_United_States

You may need this, Cris.

C: … You’re right. I’m sorry

R: You also have to consider that she has been through a lot.

ZUXb1Rx.png

Oh great. And she's an orphan. As if her life story wasn't tragic enough as it is.

KXxXHDW.png

Explains their really weird relationship though... still confusing as to why she sent her off...

C: and she also bore the weight of the Demon while going through this… I have to apologise to her later.

601oEOb.pngP3IJeBD.png

Oh no, Mr. Hellios! I ain't dropping no eaves, sir!

F; Oh, it’s you Hellios. …

H: Why are you staring at me like that?

bHpKosa.png

Yeeeeaaah! Why were you there? Why do you wear a hood? WHY ARE YOU SUCH A DICK

F: What’s the ‘plan’ you and Alvano were talking about that time?

H: Oh, that. Well…. Queen Moonie betrayed you. The brainwashing idea was hers.

F: W-what did you say!?

G51rHEr.png

ooooooo.... and now she has an evil-stepmother. The only thing that could make this worse is if she had long-lost sibling...

H: I was there when she asked Alvano to brainwash those soldiers. She obviously lied when she said that Alvano wasn’t strong enough. Her only purpose was to set you up.

sK79z2J.pngJti1H1O.png

I'm not the hero Gotham needs... I'm the one it deserves.

SeVOd90.jpg

IM BAT-HELLIOS

Lg2DZ0I.png

WHOA DID NOT SEE THAT ONE COMIN

not.

F: N-no… you’re lying…

H: Do my royal red eyes lie as well?

F: Hah!

H: I know that this is sudden. I’ll let you think about what I’ve said. Later.

T9gBDbg.png

*titanic music plays*

F: Hellios, please! Don’t leave me like this…

E8Gc0SNl.png

dick.

F: I-I sorry miss, I just had a quite unusual conversation.

Evil Minion of Satan: Hey it’s cool. No worries, pal.

cg7Pz7Sl.png

Ugh... I caught the worst possible moment... :P

F: Yes, it’s me.

EMS: Oh! Yo!

6xaTiWIl.pngPoBLBYVl.png

*claps*

Now you've insulted the Princess, AND the Empress. Now, if only you can just insult the other world leaders...

F: Pleased to make you acquaintance, Your Highness.

Phoebe: Please, call me Phoebe. I don’t like colloquialisms.

F: Fine then, Phoebe. Me neither.

P: My sister, Princess Rya, told me about today’s battle. I was a bit astonished. Did you really fight your own people?

0WYXyg8l.png

Flashback.... oOOooooOOoooOoooOooooOooOOOOO

F: Okay, so this morning I…

P: So, you were defending yourself from a bunch of brainwashed soldiers… And the one who planned all this was Moonie, the queen of Hoikade?

F: So it seems. At least, that’s what Hellios said.

P: Faratrass, tell me.

CyH2ZTrl.png

Hell no! He's some random dude. Who is also my brother. And a jerk.

H: he saved my life. He knew about the plan and he thinks I’m innocent. This is enough for me.

tiVt6CTl.png

F: Princess Rya.

P: I understand your doubts, sister, but she may be telling the truth.

XLsKRfVl.png

F: … I don’t want to kill anymore. All those innocent lives, their weight is too much to bear. I also fear that these feelings may corrupt my control over the Demon.

dPArgDVl.png

Ohmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm madi padme ohm

F: And there is only one place I would feel secure, right now.

dUp7L5jl.png

Isn't that the blue stuff in Minecraft? Who knows.

F: That’s right. Lazulis is protected by strict anti-war laws.

SsdIHCrl.png

Will she? Because you are the reincarnation of the most powerful evil being ever.... a little war couldn't hurt..

F: But I can’t go alone. Hoikade will try to capture me again, and this time they’ll be prepared.

ZWWD8lZl.png

P: Helping you now would paradoxically result in a declaration of war. Queen Moonie also sent me a messenger asking permission to cross our borders.

F: I know. That’s why I wasn’t expecting anything/. Sorry, I wasted your time.

Lx1szevl.png45tUno8l.png

Wait a second.

P: This way, Hoikade won’t have the right to say anything.

LkjjqANl.png

WAIT A SECOND.

From a political point of view, this move is perfect. She is removing the threat of the Demon king from her land, while keeping Hoikade off her land, AND clearing her conscience, all at the same time. Pretty flipping shrewd, if you ask me.

P: So, you may end up fighting ‘em again.

8C9QTjTl.png

You know, I never commented on the mugs. Phoebe and Rya both look WONDERFUL. I really like the designs.

P: Please, no teary eyes. I’m doing what’s best for Magnolia. If you were truthful, I’d have helped the innocent Vassal in her mission.

4NGav2Pl.png

P: That’s all.

F7MwXJel.png

Alfred.. you screwed up. It's Chapter 2... but triumvirate means three...

WELL PLOT

SO MUCH TEXT OH GOSH

I'll try to do more regular updates... (it's finals week... >:( )

I give a shit.

But here's the thing. The key word being "I". You don't have to like using Nino! Maybe she IS more trouble than she's worth. Perhaps Pent IS the better unit. The thing is, I was just explaining why Hellios isn't going to be used... Pent and Nino aren't even IN this game. XD

You don't like Nino, I do... it doesn't matter really. Different play styles. No need for hate.

MIDNIGHT SUN CHAPTER 2 - THE TRIUMVIRATE

Lw2ZYUV.png

NARARTOTROAOROAROTOR: Phoebe, willing to help the Vassal out, entrusted some chosen warriors to her. However, the empress let the Hoikadians into her territory to avoid disputes. Faratrass knew she had to cope with them again, sooner or later. She decides to go to Lazulis, knowing that it is protected by very strict anti-wair laws.

SDLkiji.png

No no no... you never stop at abandoned fortresses...

e7KYTKN.png

Faratrass: …

Hellios: …

FNXl9yV.png

This is like... Skywalker levels of awkwardness...

H: … Yes, Lady Faratrass?

F: Please, just Faratrass is okay.

l3CqUtN.png

Neither can I. I don't trust this hoodlum...

F: I thought I was alone since the day I was born… But now, now it’s different. I….

XQx5izY.png

Oh gosh, you mean you need time to figure out your feelings? How very realistic of you.

H: … I too, have been hidden in shadows for my entire life.

affQr7j.png

RESPECT THE DEAD JERK

H: Due to my eyes, I couldn’t just pass for a normal child. So, I was hidden in a secret room in the castle, far from everyone.

F: brother….

MtK1ZM5.png

And MAN are they cool. Kudos to you, bro.

H: I didn’t tell anyone about these skills. I had only one chance to get away from that hell, I could not fail at all. Then, I head what Moonie was planning and in that moment I knew for sure…

gSJEz5Y.png

Better save my sister that I have never met.

F: And that’s when we first met.

H: Correct.

F: You saved my life, and I’ll forever be in your debt for that. I’m just surprised to find out that Moonie is that kind of person… When my parents died, I was a newborn, and the throne was left empty.

ZKPQcgC.pngIFHhIE2.png

Hmmm... I think the pieces are beginning to fall into place...

H: Also, she raised you only because she couldn’t do otherwise.

jBnCszY.pngsBRVrGX.png

I get it now. Rather shrewd on Moonie's part, to also move the Demon king to a more controllable child... that lying witch.

SOME FINAL FANTASY TUNE IS PLAYING AND IT KILLS ME THAT I DONT KNOW WHICH UGHHH

F: This is horrible. Moonie…

H: …

Really? I think I read the job description wrong...

R: If we fail in this mission, Magnolia will suffer serious consequences!

Puledra: You’re right, Milday. Please forgive us. We know that the situation isn’t one of the best, but at least Hoikade will be surprised by a bunch of “brainwashed” Magnolian veterans.

tYt9zVj.png

Strategy hint is obvious

heh. I geddit. Nice one, Puledra.

R: Well. Andre!

A: Y-Yes, Your Highness.

Strategy hint is obvious

A: Yes, Princess…

R: I have sent Cristoph ahead to scout the terrain. I’m going to talk to the Vassal in the meantime. You two wait here and be sure no one is following us.

P: As you wish, Milday.

sOAK3o6.pngsUG9zyK.png

AWWWW YEEAHHHHH

R: … And that’s it. We’ll be resting in this abandoned fortress for today. This way we’ll be protected from any kind of attacks.

F: Seems reasonable.

UutG0HW.png

Thank gosh! We still had no money until now.

H: Heh, quite generous, I should say.

R: Magnolia knows how to treat its allies.

Oh, that beautiful armor shade... this guy means BUSINESS

Manly Purple Guy: The Vassal has brainwashed some Magnolian warriors. All the troops! We have to stop the Demon King from proceeding any further! Don’t let yourselves be intimidated by the difficulty of this task!

tumblr_m3ipx7wAAu1rskj3to1_500.gif

F: If we manage to defeat the coporals, the others will probably surrender.

R: It’s not that simple. The coporals won’t stand in the front lines. We’ll have to pierce through their forces.

H: We could also hold them off for quite a while. If the battle turns against them, they might consider a retreat.

F: We can surely approach this battle in many different ways.

Zxv8VT2.png

sigh. It's unavoidable...

s5aNLhg.png

Well... It's technically a survive chapter... that has THREE BOSSES, TWO CHARACTERS TO RECRUIT, AND 7 DIFFERENT ENDINGS

Anyways, here's the stats...

UxkEoHa.pngW2FydZx.pngqMVFpwx.png

So... Puledra. Not a new class, a renamed Bishop... but still cool nonetheless. He's a very useful healer, but an AWFUL experience hog. As his stats are really, really lackluster, but he is a magic TANK, milord look at that RES! His growths are... surprisingly good. My idea is to bench him when we get our troubadour eventually, and then maybe pull him out again when everyone else catches up. We'll have to see...

pZE2xKJ.pngi0Z3RTn.pngo3IAu8L.png

Alright.. Andre. He's our first of three Trainee classes.... and I love him. I love trainee's in general, they're always my best units in FE8. He starts off with really crappy stats, but pretty good growths will have him HOPEFULLY turn out. He can only promote into two classes now, Wonder Pupil (which I think is a better Super Trainee?) and Mage. If he really doesn't get good level-ups, he WILL be benched, you can count on that.

And finally, the boss. (at least, the only one right now)

hmmm... not too bad. The hardest part of this chapter is the number of enemies, and all the STUUF you want to do. He's pretty easy to take out, which I WILL be doing. It's a requirement for somebody else to show up, and I want that Topaz! The gems are some of the coolest new icons around, and I WANT IT

Oh, also, there are two house, an armory, and a vendor. Will be visiting.

NEXT TIME - Can I get everything done in time?! Can I visit that house that is inaccessible by our units?! WILL HELLIOS ACTUALLY BE USEFUL?! Tune in at 9pm on CBS

This chapter... has the most convoluted recruitment process and ending process EVER.

AND ITS AWESOME.

Alfred really put thought into this chapter... the amount of events it would take are incredible! While I probably won't show off every ending, and only get the "best" one, I highly encourage players to try them out for themselves. Here's a short list of the differences. Also, spoilers for Chapter 2. Just saying.

(taken from Alfred's post in the Midnight Sun topic)

1) All the corporals are alive

2) Menmus is dead, Tirado is alive

3) Menmus is alive, Tirado is dead, Cattleya is alive (Best Ending)

4) Menmus is dead, Tirado is dead, Cattleya is alive

5) Menmus is alive, Tirado is dead, Cattleya is dead

6) All the corporals are dead

7) #Menmus' autorecruitment scene if you haven't talked to him during the chapter, and if he's still alive by the end of it.
