Let's play Conquest (Normal Classic) - WW2 Pacific Theatre Edition! Chapter 27 Gameplay: Father vs Children

Recommended Posts

Okay, I'm just about to start writing up Chapter 9, but I have some trouble here. I can't figure out what to do with Fort Dragonfall. Shall I just make a fictional POW uprising at Camp Tracy in California (incorporating the Cowra uprising as well), then have combinations of a fictional Battle of Los Angeles with aspects of Steven Spielberg's 1941, Battle of Fort Stevens and Battle of Santa Barbara added in? I'm still technically in Nohr, so I don't really want to use historical raids on Japan just yet.

I don't know what to tell you, that chapter doesn't even make sense in its own story. How exactly has an advance group of soldiers managed to penetrate so deeply into Nohrian territory so quickly and managed to secure a fort that Garon and Iago have the power to turn into an acidic deathtrap at will?

Some sort of secret military base where they're testing out long-distance weapons, like weather balloons.

Yeah, a POW uprising works.

Okay, for some reason, Imgur has changed its upload interface, because apparently, they're undergoing changes. And I can't upload my screenshots as a non-member. I'll have to ask everyone to wait for a bit, while I prepare for my Chapter 10 playthrough. Sorry folks. :(

Use Photobucket. It's so much better for uploading pictures.

Oh, that's weird. I just gave it a shot, and it was fine.

Actually, I managed to sort out the upload. Here is the update:

Chapter 9: Camp Tracy Uprising Another Trial

[spoiler=Debriefing and Camp Tracy]
EooHX4L.jpeg

KWEZEyt.jpeg

Well, it looks like Father and Commander Garon was quite happy with my progress with the quelling. It was kind of surprising how he valued the lack of deaths in my campaign, considering how much of a monster and a fascist he turned out to be. (Thank goodness he wasn't the President!)

9tvmuY9.jpeg

Anyway, I made it back for another debriefing at Camp Pendleton near San Diego. Both Garon and US Army Chief of Staff George Marshall congratulated us on our exemplary mission...

xTGFDNO.jpeg

...that is until Iago butted in to smear us with allegations of our disobedience with the specifics...

G477uje.jpeg

MsXDygO.jpeg

But as always, not only my siblings took cover for me, but also Chief Marshall roared at Iago for "making up gobbledegook instructions which [he] never issued".

zjGNRB0.jpeg

ndGEmsf.jpeg


President Roosevelt, belatedly arriving to the meeting, also mentioned that the "end justifies the means". While Iago stammered at his words, Roosevelt ordered him away with further paperwork.

Nu5W8NM.jpeg

Inevitably, this means that I will start fighting against the JapaneseHoshidans. While I have some reservations fighting against my former family and friends - which is one of the reasons why many Hoshidan-Nohrians enlisters were sent to the other front with Nazi Valm and Fascist Plegia - it has to be done to teach the misguided people of their fascist follies.

NkXMV0m.jpeg

Further words of wisdom came in from Xander, who told me to seek the Rainbow Sage in the jungles of Indonesia (Notre Sagesse) for his divine powers and abundant resouces necessary to defeat the Hoshidan fascists.

And thus we embark again. But first, we need to deal with urgent reports of an Hoshidan POW uprising at Camp Tracy in Byron, CA. Given the high tension along the uprisers, we had to be careful not to provoke them...

fQOuDKA.jpeg

It was no use persuading them, however. While some commited suicide, others have decided to kill the Nohrian managers of the camp, and yet others took up arms to fight to the death! To Arms, everyone!



[spoiler=Camp Tracy Uprising]
wqHNEaG.jpeg

What was somewhat tricky was that with them Azura was held hostage. Being a former visitor and resident to Hoshido under late ambassador Arete she is being threatened with her life as an alleged spy! This shall not stand! We managed to intercept the radio room she was in, giving maneuvering instructions. With good wireless communications (something that the backwards JapaneseHoshidans do not have) she would successfully evade the Hoshidan captors.

KcZZ1PM.jpeg

Meanwhile some of our main troops held off the banzai charges from the main entry while Elise, Odin, and I snuck to the side of the camp grounds. Although not without some healing needed, the main troops successfully held off the outbreak, and charged inside.

IyWuvC8.jpeg

As for myself, I've found a lone wanderer by the name of Nyx, who has been hobo-ing across the land as a proficient Mage.

cEoMRW0.jpeg

While initially reluctant, she eventually enlisted to our noble cause of freedom and justice! (Actually not really...I pretty much benched her as I already had Odin as part of my main team, and as eventually Elise would most likely attack with tomes after promoting.)

ju2zgYL.jpeg

jT161fq.jpeg

We would then regroup on the south corridor, while Mozu would take out the two archers in the Chief Manager's Office (boss chambers).

ekkdjWq.jpeg

tf4l3Rw.jpeg
SHE CAN DOOOOOO IIIIIIIIIITTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!

Some of the surviving camp staff also managed to sneak out building plans for us. Via radio, we gave instructions to Azura in incapaciating the Hoshidans POW rebels with in-built overhead nerve gas sprinklers (the dragon's acid rain). With the help of her dragon powers, the gas incapaciated those in the main room. Not a moment sooner did we overwhelm them. Some we had to kill, others we captured, yet some others committed suicide to avoid the shame.

We nearly got caught off guard by the reinforcements, but they too were not that difficult to subdue. Also, little sister Elise's baseball bat swing practicestaff abuse have paid off!!!

UrCyNuT.jpeg
SHE CAN DOOOOOO IIIIIIIIIITTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, on a more gameplay note, I decided to toy around and boss abuse Haitaka with Arthur, Mozu, Silas, and Odin to gain some extra levels, and also dance-abused Azura, and staff-abused Elise. All of these took an extra 30-40 turns, with a total of 70 turns upon clearing the chapter. After some level ups, and esecially after Azura caught up with us, Effie gave the rebel ringleader a good beating.

c2SLks4.jpeg
MuHhNDo.jpeg

XFYy9iB.jpeg
yTYJPTK.jpeg



[spoiler=Deportation of Azura]
gJkvQCd.jpeg

BR8jMYN.jpeg

xFS4tU4.jpeg

Unfortunately, since the war started, Arete was lynched and killed by the Hoshidan mob, and Azura had to flee for her life from Hoshido back to west coast Nohr. Further complications arose after she lost her identification papers on board, and she was sent to Camp Tracy with many of the Hoshidan POWs. Eventually, word came around to President Roosevelt who confirmed that the Nohrian girl is indeed Azura, and was about to escort her home to Washington DC... when the uprising started. She was eventually captured to be executed, although we arrived just in the nick of time. But because of complications with her (and my) family back in the capital, she decided to to join as the foces sweetheart and dancer of our army.

E8GQAn2.jpeg

Both to get away from the political game of Father Garon, and also to disarm the Hoshidan fascists. Onwards we go to Los Angeles to board our ship to Indonesia/Notre Sagesse!

Nazi Valm? I always thought Daein was the more Nazi-y country in FE.

I guess Valm will do here?

Though can't say if Valm even fits as a Nazi allegory...

Hey, everyone, I'm really sorry for taking longer than usual with my next update. I've been doing quite a bit of photoshopping, due to this being a bit of a special episode. I'm just going to upload a couple of teasers for you.

EDIT: Chapter all updated! http://serenesforest.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=64837&p=4486136

@Squidmark Iggy: Yeah, sorry, mate. There's a lot more image photoshopping to go through than usual. It's probably not until another week. :sob:

@Alastor: Thanks! Mind you, the other option was to do a different version for each. (Chrom x Avatar, Chrom x Sully, Chrom x Sumia, and so on.)

@Blah the Prussian: * :(: stammers* but...but...but......think about Brady! Which other father (besides Gregor) has the DNA to create Brady's barbaric face????

How do you think Brady happened? :P:

I do not know, and I do not give a jack shit for the purpose of this story. :P:

Also, I edited my teaser to show a full-scale brawl.

Actually, I managed to sort out the upload quicker than I thought. Here is the update:

Chapter 10: Battle of Los Angeles (Unhappy Reunion) a tribute to Steven Spielberg's 1941

[spoiler=A brief respite and shenangians Part 1]

*The Wistful Wilds starts playing*

So we came to the gloomy port village of Port Dia...

TUpe2nq.jpg

*Abrupt stop with needle scratch! Commence track: Swing Swing Swing from 1941, by John Williams* ...NOT! We came to the swinging metropolis of Los Angeles! Woohoo!

IeF1VaX.jpg

6QYDoZt.jpg

And what better way to spend the night at a swing bar, picking up the ladies?

SZxA3H7.jpg

HELLO! FELLOW PATRIOTS! TIME FOR OUR JITTERBUG CONTEST!!!

lWwckxs.jpg

All right let's dance everyone! *Benny Goodman's music swing music plays*

2SUHxSe.jpg

1wSJQnJ.jpg

PfTS2eR.jpg

oe5qT45.jpg

Uh, oh! Looks like someone's gone a bit too far with their drinks!

6DqnKPN.jpg

No sooner have they decided to pick on us! This ain't gonna stand! Boys and girls! Get im!!

[spoiler=Trouble from the coast]

Meanwhile, Felicia and her friend Lucina are on alert after warnings are issued of a large submarine fleet heading towards the city.

W5BwNz8.jpg

They even have a nearby farmer/hillybilly named Hollis P Wood as a hostage.

QiIZdBp.jpg

Takumi and the submarine rears its ugly head...

OhOae9o.jpg

Felicia & Lucina: AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

But as if we care! Because we're having the time of our life! Everyone's drinking and brawling like it's the Civil War and clobbering each other!

[spoiler=A brief respite and shenangians Part 2]

kmKboH5.jpg

Soon the drunken brawl spills onto the street, with us picking on any bystanding soldiers we could find!

MA16YcV.jpg

Soon the whole block became one big Super Smash Brothers session!

7Nw4PzQ.jpg

Oops, a couple of innocent bystanders!

vmpig9W.jpg

"YOU WANNA PIECE OF ME, YOU SON OF A BITCH???"

The whole brawl suddenly came to a jolting halt as Lucina came out of the arriving tank and fired warning shots from her Falcion Mk-2 machine gun.

Gv6pQIC.jpg

ogQTydx.jpg

Oh wait, there's also Felicia. What's going on???

2QSDZnE.jpg

"FREEZE!!! ALL OF YOU TOJO STOOGES!!!"

7KSMVxZ.jpg

"We've got actual trouble! And you all lunatics are drinking like bums!"

fpTBO6v.jpg

Aaaand the young general's daddy's busted too...

Turns out that there's a JapaneseHoshidan submarine on the loose! As such, all ships are on red alert, unable to leave Los Angeles.

lDFZeIa.jpg

RtyN1Zn.jpg

No sooner has she said those words that...not just a submarine, but an entire fleet of J**Hoshidon't fascists arrived!!! Oh f***!!!

One of those on the ship was Takumi, who last time I heard, vied for vengence! And he is with the

Submarine Captain Mifune. The whole city went into a panic with all the marines and navy personell stampeding to their positions, and Army Tanks hastily deployed. One guy has decided to wing it and camp out at his house to return fire. Anyway, we shall hold our positions to protect our country and domain! To arms everyone!

[spoiler=Battle of Los Angeles Turn 1-5]

Okay, so before battle, I prepared a couple of medicine and meals for this high-tension chapter.

I've given the following boosts:

Myself: Meal (Str+1, Spd+1), HP Tonic

Felicia: Meal, Str + Spd + Def Tonics

Elise: Sp Tonic

Silas: Spd + Def Tonics

Arthur: Str + Spd + Def Tonics

Effie:Sp Tonic

Odin: Meal, Def Tonic

Niles: Meal, HP + Str + Spd + Def Tonics

Mozu: HP + Str + Spd + Def Tonics

To be frank, I don't really know how much that helped. On my first try, I lost to a 3% critical hit

from a Hoshidan warrior on the east side on Turn 3. On the second, Severa got ganged up with Ninjas and a Naginata Soldier in Turn 6. Third time was the charm.

Anyway, here's a turn by turn analysis of my actions:

1st Hour (2100 hrs):

ZPrQCPb.jpg

Silas and Effie moved down to that one narrow passage on the east-west docks, while Elise and I head for Beverley Hills and Santa Monica areas (the northeastern house) to warn the residents. Odin took the magic artillery to fire at the warriors coming in from the west. Mozu (and Azura with her singing) did double time in firing the ballista at the landing Hoshidan forces on Sunset, Long, and Manhattan Beaches(the immediate southeast and southwest of Dia). Niles also led the anti-air division at El Monte (north west docks of Dia), firing at the advancing snipers (archers) coming in from the southeast. Felicia and Arthur were also deployed in the southeast to take out the aforementioned snipers. We were all to hold the line just south of Central Los Angeles (basically our starting position) - once the troops reach Glendale and Burbank (shown as the green tiles at the north gate of Dia), then we would lose our strategic city to the J**sHoshidon'ts. On the enemy phase, for some reason, the soldiers just parked in front of Sila (paired up with Effie) - denying me the counterattack.

2nd Hour (2200 hrs):

AHbgg0j.jpg

Niles fires at the two sniper divisions. Felicia and Arthur take their (attack) stances to take care of the approaching snipers. Odin rotates the magic artillery towards the south, and bombards the enemy infantry landing at Manhattan Beach. (Shown as the naginata soldiers on the southwestern piers.) Silas had a bit more trouble due to having to spend an attack on the blocking enemy unit, and have Azura sing for an extra turn. Mozu also fired on the approaching infantry and motorised divisions (naginata soldiers) and ninjas from Manhattan Beach.

On the enemy phase, the Ninjas clobbered Silas, partially disabling his defense. Another bad news comes in the form of bomber and fighter planes (sky knights) approaching central Los Angeles. We were just about to have Mozu and Niles take them down when...

3rd Hour (2300 hrs):

yb3R7o7.jpg

p4mIrIv.jpg

0Oy1Ubw.jpg

...a trio of deranged fighter planes led by John Belushi started wrecking the place! They were Camilla and her two retainers, SeveraSelena and Beruka!

vg21jKd.jpg

As soon as they joined, I directed them to take the planes down. Everyone else were doing better this turn, with especially Felicia and Arthur taking down the Archers navigating through Anaheim Hills (the far eastern docks). Selena paired up with Beruka, with the latter at the front, and taking down the incoming planes.

4th Hour (0000 hours +1 day):

AeY59iN.jpg

Silas and his light tank fleet needed repairs and refuelling, prompting their evacuation from enemy range. Camilla took the chance to visit Orange and Newport Beach area. (They are shown as the southeastern house to warn the residents.)

3LIF86h.jpg

N7LcfHJ.jpg

In the enemy phase, she took on, and defeated Oboro, proving her worth as an overpowered B29 Superfortress Bomber fit for Hiroshima's Little Boy...and a valuable Royal unit. A stray bomber (Sky Knight) decided to have a go at Niles...the fool.

5th Hour (0100 hours +1 day):

...And Niles responded with a well-deserved anti-aircraft missile attack, with some ballistic artillery help from Mozu. Meanwhile Elise healed Silas, who would have to brace himself with the next onslaught of Hoshidan warriors. Odin again fired his magic ballista down south onto the advancing heavy and light riflemen (oni warriors and naginata soldiers), while Felicia and Harold still taking down the advancing snipers like nobody's business. Also, during the enemy phase, why did a Sky Knight stopped in front of Effie at the front of the docks??? (She was attack-stancing with Camilla.) Another idiocy by the Hoshidon'ts.

[spoiler=Battle of Los Angeles Turn 6-11]

6th Hour (0200 hours +1 day):

QuppUi7.jpg

ytWRowO.jpg

So Effie and Camilla responded by taking that plane down.

4dvWTK3.jpg

As there are no enemies within Nile's ballista's range, he made a quick visit to the residential areas of El Montelast house on the northeast.

yOfEVvp.jpg

As for the paired-up planes, Silas and Camilla took them down, while Beruka (with Selena) took down one of the Ninjas.

7th-9th Hour (0300-0500 hours +1 day):

Unfortunately, Takumi used his dragon vein to dry out the docks' waters. (How the hell can the Hoshidans only use 1 movement cost between the dried trenches and the dock platforms? Are everyone secretly Ninjas??) So we had to group Silas, Camilla, Effie, Felicia, and Arthur to face the last onslaught of land and air units from the southeast.

7KDCG0t.jpg

Turn 7: Note the enemies on the SE corner of the map.

MMhZWil.jpg

Turn 8:

DUx8Lja.jpg

Thankfully, they all did the job by Turn 10, with no surviving enemy units sneaking through. Meanwhile, Odin and I took on the advancing warriors from the west side. That was surprisingly not as easy, due to the Fate's RNG being unreliable for dodge-tanking.

10-11th Hour (0600-0700 hours +1 day):

5whaMXg.jpg

As I lost over half of my HP, I retreated to get Elise's healing, while Camilla came over to take out those warriors on my behalf. Also...during the enemy phase...

FXTfXHA.jpg

BUDDY SILAS CAN DOOOOOOOO IIIIIIITTTTTT!!!!!

fVKJVfP.jpg

By the final turn before victory there were only 3-4 units left, and none of them were within reach of Glendale and Burbank (the green tiles). Victory assured.

[spoiler=Takumi's retreat]

NYMJaj4.jpg

And no sooner did we see Takumi's forces retreat! Hooray we won! But not without a utterly destroyed amusement park and a defiant Takumi taunting us...

GHNkdvQ.jpg

9WAgokF.jpg

No matter how we convince Takumi that we are bound by the Geneva Convention (which Hoshido did not sign to, ironically), Takumi consider us as the stooges to the bloodthirsty Satanic devil.

U6UKGlY.jpg

Js1NmR5.jpg

This has started to rile Camilla the wrong way, but I stopped her, convinced in our moral superiority over the Hoshidans.

tW7VwEq.jpg

taQXLJf.jpg

Takumi then further taunts us with the knowledge of Ryoma receiving the Rainbow Sage's power and taking control of the natural resources in the country. Not knowing that my brother Xander has done the same thing ages ago, helping to fuel the Nohr's mystic and industrial power...

N7Bkb6t.jpg

The ships are now ready to sail again. May our expedition to IndonesiaNostra Sagesse be successful! As Joseph Stilwell mutters, "It's gonna be a long war..."

This was gold. I really liked all of the edits you did with the images and such.

Since Lucina and Ike appeared, does that mean you will recruit them as well?

So if Valm is Germany and Plegia is Italy, that would make Ylisse Britain, correct? And then Chon'sin is France, with Yen'fey as Petain. I'm putting way too much thought into the FE WWII...
