You don't have to capture him. He doesn't start out with it equipped, so you can simply have Thaddy steal it.

Oh. Okay, that would've been nice back in my second run, when I spent 15 minutes trying to capture the bastard.

I can't think of anything that wouldn't inspire foolhardiness in her.

It's kinda her character.

Oh, Clifford is the "respecting your children's choices" type. Guess I got the wrong impression back when he slapped his daughter for disobeying him.

"Yeah, if my daughter wants to kill herself, I'll support and encourage her."

"...she better not get any funny ideas about becoming a knight and doing something with her life, though, unless she wants to take a trip to Daddy's world of hurt."

Found the Awakening Art Director.

Ahahahahahahahahahahahahaha... Really, I think it goes for all modern FE except Echoes. Three Houses may be Better Than Fates, but still, every single class other than general team fortress knight 2 finds a way to show off women's cleavage or legs. Obviously doesn't happen with males. Seriously, why is there a boob window in the gremory's dress?

Well, it's Ruby's decision and it's got nothing to do with you.

That should've been Ward's response, honestly.

They must spend a lot of time practicing that formation.

The renowned Verian "Crotch Trap" formation. It is speculated that the tactical genius who made it up accidentally sent the wrong plans to the base. But it is undeniable that it was a genial idea. Because who the hell is gonna dare to move with four spears pointed at their crotch?

I hope you didn't forget about the Freeze Arrows.

What? Why would I buy those? They're so shitty...

...Ohhh, wind damage...

...Well, fuck. Guess who's played through this game twice without realizing the hidden potential those arrows have.

Since you said you rarely used Thaddy, let me just say that Riddle does NOT start out with the Assassin Knife equipped. Stealing it will not only provide you with an Erzheimer item, but will also render the boss virtually helpless, as none of his other daggers have any crit.
Just make sure he takes his turn before moving in Thaddy, so he won't have a chance to switch weapons. I think he always moves last, but the reinforcements won't trigger before you talk to the NPCs. If he is the only enemy on the map, he has no choice but to move at the start of a turn.

Thanks for the advice!

Though at this point you're just telling me how to play the game. I get that it's frustrating to watch me do everything wrong, but if you just beat the game for me, that'll be...

......

Wait, what the hell am I complaining about? Keep at it.

 It seemed to suggest that because they'd been on the other side so long that when they went to Elibe they would break down. This isn't unique to BS actually and I can think of examples where it actually works well (not spoiling). I'll agree this is not a good example.

Oh, I absolutely think it's a concept that could work if it wasn't for the small detail that it directly contradicts the sequel that came out first.

And it's so easy to fix as well: due to the process involved in resurrecting someone their quintessence is quite severely drained leading to reduced life (what I'd personally pick if writing a remake), the energy exerted stopping the dragons took a lot more out of her than expected (which considering her combat in the game beforehand is 1 0 1 shouldn't be implausible), on dying her quintessence was being broken down and she came back with less of it, some examples just off the top of my head.

Good ideas. Then again, Ninian in general has Deus Ex Machinas pouring out of her every pore. Her character has more things to be fixed than her inability to exist properly.

It certainly has its uses in Genealogy (says the guy who in his first playthrough didn't pair Lex with anyone, but Wrath + Vantage is a consistent meme), Thracia (where it neutralises PCC on that attack and wrath so it's not that perfect. No HP threshold though), PoR has no HP threshold and you can use it on a tanky unit thanks to the scroll (Mia's alright and Naesala's Naesala), RD has it precentage procced (Why? Nolan worked fine with it to be fair, but still.), in Awakening and Fates can use it really well if you use it in conjunction with other skills and same with 3H (Again, good guy Dimitri in that thing you called a trap). But Vantage is reliant on the unit's stats, the other skills they might have, what they're using and what scale of foes they're facing, so alone it can be bad, but that's what I like doing, planning out what can be done to improve stuff like this.

I like how half of these are just listing the skill's weaknesses. Seriously, how's RD being percentage procced supposed to prove that it's actually good?

And, to be frank, it seems more difficult than it's worth to make this skill truly work. You more or less have to one-shot the enemy, otherwise it's no different than a regular enemy phase fight.

Also useful in Heores but that's a different discussion because of how Heroes works.

Ah, yes, you see, the problem here is that Heroes might as well not exist as far as I'm concerned.

Berwick Vantage only works like it does because of Berwick's combat to begin with, so I wouldn't say just copying it would work imo.

I never said it would. Just said that Berwick Vantage is awesome.

Also accuracy in Berwick is as nervewracking as a shoddy zipline, so its reliability is also up in the air.

That's why Adel has Supporter, isn't it? Adel in Leon's range is a damn great tank, long as you can keep him away from ranged units.

Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby

(AA AA AA AA AA AAAAAAA)

Do you really think he'll listen?

(AA AA AA AA AA AAAAAAA)

Now why you trying to get to him?

(AA AA AA AA AA AAAAAAA)

Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby

(AA AA AA AA AA AAAAAAA, AA AA, AA AAAAAA)

Turnabout?

It's official: we have a scale of good husbands from Clive to Clifford and according to horseshoe theory Mathilda's the element it loops around.

When you really think about it, Clifford looks like a genderbent Mathilda. Y'know, crippling alcoholism aside.

So he really doesn't want her to die. Maybe if he'd do something other than slur his drunk ass out on occasion he could actually do something there.

To be fair, his solution is pretty effective at keeping her from dying in the battlefield: He just wants her to sit at home and look like his wife.

...Which is, uh... rather worrying.

(Come to think of it why should both be deployed on any map before they resolve their issues?)

Because they have no say in the matters of army management, and Reese has no emotions, so he can't care about their personal issues.

Poor father wrecks awful father

The fight of the century.

I know now why the caged bird kills brigands.

Pent up rage?

I see the social distancing squad are a regular presence among the knights in Navaron.

But... they're extremely close to one another!

At least he's giving him a chance, I feel like this guy's just a cog in the machine and doesn't really like doing this.

He doesn't really seem to have much animosity towards Arturo, yeah.

Not gonna lie, I was expecting a paralogue from that.

Nah, there are only four paralogues in this game. Well, when I say "paralogues" I mean chapters that can be unlocked at any point, like Knight's Pride. If we're just talking character-based chapters, there are a few more. Arturo doesn't get either.

The mother has a portrait.

And maybe was a witch, I dunno.

Goddamnit! I knew I was forgetting something... I wanted to make a reference to that in her filename, but it slipped my mind! Baaah...

Oh fuck right off.

Why do you think it's taken me so long to play this one? If I had gotten any other paralogues I would've played them first, too.

Not Narga?

Man the knockoff was so close.

Hey, Kaga made the game.

This is a busy-ass month come to think of it.

The paralogue, Arthur and Ruby being recruited, the two maps, I think they mightn't have time for it all.

Everyone gets a piggyback ride by Speed Blessed Derrick. That's how they are able to travel so fast.

OH FUCK IT'S ANRI'S WAY

Well... there's only one wyvern. But one's enough.

But does it create a giant lightning bomb?

...No. Sorry.

Really, this powerful?

He learned thoron, it's not that amazing.

Having a deathray in your pocket, the powercreep has to end eventually.

Morgan for Heroes.

Man, imagine you didn't even matter after learning the kamehameha.

Not even Krillin had it that bad.

Since when has Morgan been anything more than a punching bag?

Maybe because he found you to be a pompous ass who dared to take the fashion of two good characters (Hanneman came after NMotE) and try to rub it in the dirt?

Nah, that's just you projecting.

That said, I hear you.

Also, I love how you went out of your way to acknowledge Hanneman to prevent me from ranting on my reply. Because I absolutely would've ranted if you had forgotten Best Character from Worst Game.

...No, sorry, that's Titania's hair.

Well that's just rude.

She defies the rules of cutscene. Hubert wouldn't last five minutes against her.

Also Imhullu in action.

Kinda.

Oh man, Pretzel-stu just really wants to kill them.

What would he even want besides anyways?

...He's insane and dumb. Not a great combo.

yeesh, Reubhen get out of the knife queue I'm more likely to actually stab him than you after the very thing you decided to save elaine over.

Hoo boy, how things have changed...

Also, jeez you white knight just dig up, dumbass he is being here.

...This is a bit too much slang for me, I have no idea what you just tried to say. What is he supposed to "dig up", exactly?

I mean, they made sure he lived.

And this is how he repays them.

Sometimes you think about the classics. 

What does that have to do with anything? I mean, I love it, but what?

Other times you think about how monocles are not used often enough.

Morgan had the right idea, for once in his life.

Anyway, I agree with you there. Monocles are great. Imagine if more characters had monocles... Like Eugen. Imagine if Eugen had a monocle.

Qe4cnxvr o

There. Eugen with a monocle. We may all die in peace now.

Yeah this was very cool, however that phrase at the end is mostly made-up. Like really, I think people are just using pareidolia to imagine the tombstone says that when it's just some random texture.

Yeah, well, in other news, Wario doesn't really say "D'oh, I missed!", Luigi killing himself in Luigi's Mansion 1 was just a glitchy shadow, and the ocean isn't really blue, it's just the sunlight reflecting off it.

Who cares at this point? Just the fact that Luigi's beta model was discovered 24 years and 1 month after the game's release is epic enough that it no longer matters that's not what the texture actually says. Not that it ever did.

Seeing these types of stories always amuses me. I understand believing these rumors at first, but then trying them for 8 hours straight, at one point you gotta realize it's all bull no? I guess I wouldn't know since I never looked up these kinds of cheats, otherwise I would have done the same thing... maybe.

I was like 10, my dude. I was also a particularly gullible and naïve child.

On the other hand, I had fun in my search for Luigi. I still fondly remember the day I discovered a youtube video explaining how to trigger the Toadstool 64 easter egg that swapped Mario's model with that old fanmade Luigi that looked more like Waluigi than anything else. Back then I didn't even know the very concept of hacking or modding, but I still downloaded a modding tool that I didn't understand just so I could get Luigi. It was a great day.

Strange, in my LP I remember being able to edit my updates.

Weird.

Now this is a true Erzhemer momento. I meant FEUniverse account. Though it wasn't a typo so much as just the wrong word.

Big boner.

No seriously, back in the day "boner" used to mean "blunder". It's just that the... other meaning, has become more popular nowadays.

No I'm editing the most dull vanila FEGBA experience there is and it's a small scale project. However if I'm sure what Ostian Princess is, then you're very close.

Hmm, I see.

I also haven't made anything, though I have released it for a few people on discord has a very early beta, it is not publicly available elsewhere. And like I said I intend to release it once I finish it.

Please do.

(Mejicano = Erzheimer momento si ya se que lo dices jugando porque yo digo Espania no me expliques el chiste ... adentroantes de que Ruben diga que no lo puedo mandar y me explique el chiste )

Vale, vale, lo siento. A partir de ahora lo diré bien.

Lo que pasa es que no utilizamos cojon aqui en Mexico, es mas, estaba buscando palabras "estereotipicas" usadas en Espania que no en Latinoamerica/Mexico.

Pues ahí tienes una, Mejillón.

This Forum is super clean too with good colors to distinct itself. It is very easy to navigate here. Meanwhile FEU is like I enter and it's just a list of many threads there it's... a bit confusing for me at first glance.

FEU is kinda weird, yeah. Still not as bad as the subreddit, but the lack of navigation options doesn't help. Still, it's worth making heads or tails of FEU. Unlike in the subreddit, there are worthwhile things to be found there.

Also Dorothea in a swimsuit... yeah they do be like that, mega horny.

Only mega? I swear the only thing that ever pops up there is horny fanart of Three Houses's waifus and husbandos. And bad memes, lots of bad memes. It has to be the most predictable FE community out there.

Well I am fond of the xDDD thing. I say it often with my irl friends and they too maybe it's just we are weird but I find "Equisde" to be so much better and easier to say than "exdi" (written as it would be pronounced in spanish).

Hey, I never said xD was the problem. It's the fact that all these guys do is copy what the video says and add nothing of value. Same deal if they say LOL or LMAO or I FUCK DONKEYS, it really doesn't matter.

Anyways, sometimes I see two different "first" comments, but this reminds me of the "49 views but 100 likes? hurr herr youtub drunk???!?!" like shut up 9 yr old you aren't funny... though I don't like to lash out at people or small businesses that use memes wrongly because it's probably their first time saying it or are very ignorant and innocent, I wouldn't like to yell at someone who behind the screen is like 8.

I like how you compare 8 year olds to corporations that have no idea how to use memes. You know, like... every big corporation in the world.

Agreed on last point.

Okay cool.

It's from the Rick & Morty show, a lot of people like to say the meme (I realize while typing this that I'm explaining the joke but whatever) of "and then he turns himself into a pickle! funniest shit I've ever seen" this meme was so forced and I don't know how people eventually thought it was funny. I'm glad this meme is dead. Fucking Reddit should stop normiesizing the memes.

The memes are the only thing I've ever known about Rick & Morty. Beyond that it just looks like your average adult cartoon. Hideous, relies on dirty shock humor above all else, and not much else. I'm probably mistaken, but that's what it looks like to me.

You aren't wrong I do have some not innocent things. Well only 4chan and Gamefaqs. Other than that it's social media or FEA and a bookmark for FE6 routesplits taken from WOD.

4chan!? Are you fucking kidding me!? Out of my thread! Leave this instant!

 I also don't frequently use 4chan, only sometimes to ask questions in the /his/(tory) or /sci/(ence) boards.

Oh right, 4chan's more than /pol/

...out of curiousity, how are people in those boards? Are they also nazis? I... really hope there aren't nazis in the history board.

Hey no worries I understand too as I suffer pretty much the same thing. And I hate movies and their cliches, two of them is the classical school setting where everybody but one guy likes math... I despise how society has come to shaft math just because nobody is willing to pay attention in school, if they did they would see it's the most fun class of all!

I had a weird relationship with math. Some years I actually enjoyed it, other years I hated it. It's like a lot of stuff in school, actually: potentially fun thing, but completely ruined by the shitty education system.

And the 2nd cliche is when someone explains something complicated but instead of the person replying "Huh cool!" or "Interesting, that sounds super cool" instead they say the most comedic shit ever (not) "Huh... English please?" It just bothers me...

Ahahahah... That was a running gag in one of my favorite childhood shows.

...I only had one. So yeah. It was a running gag in that one.

Yeah it's definitely cool how he can reclass into a dancer and with his hips use the dance command. Really cool 😄

If only. But the only person that can be a dancer is Feena. Besides, Etzel is better off being better at using Excalibur than Merric.

That's absolutely hilarious, by the way. Who's the best Excalibur user: the designated wielder of the thing, or random monocle guy we picked up in the desert?

Perhaps, that smile shows my cringe memer status.

It's the face people make when you make jokes.

Just kidding, just kidding.

Damn that's sad...

Yeah, it is. A few times I've been tempted to buy the game and see what the hell it's all about. If only so I can say that I played the bootleg version of The Last Promise.

also agreed on the TWD thing. Though I never cared about it from the start.

The original was good, but rather overrated. Then it got worse.

*sigh* I already did and I don't care enough to do it again. Here I will "Erzheimer". Laugh.

Ey, congratulations! You finally wrote it correctly! Boy am I proud of you, my man!

(ok but to be fair I have also beaten jokes into the ground, like the inb4 thing oh that reminds me inb4 Ruben says I can't boss him and doesn't laugh. Just a saddened frown of dissapointment towards me... Ruben you're gonna make me cry if you look at me so angrily.

Uedfz3v4 o

It's decently fun in some maps, not so much for others. It's ok and decently fun but not one of the best. The writing is ehh and it sucks a bit but the newer patch fixed a bit of it iirc.

Hmmm... Well, right now I'm having too much fun with Sun God's Wrath.

I am dissapointed you did not personally modify each and every one of them as you do. My dissapointment is immeasurable but my day is yet not ruined if this update is fun (and they usually are)

I understood that reference! Also, disappointed*

Anyways, EUGEN EUGEN!

E U G E N

I just realized, you probably have no idea who Eugen is. You poor fool, you've no idea what you're missing out on...

Again it seems like this conversation works better because of his daughter's death... though I would also imagine it is the logical next step for a human to think about when they debate this point.

To be fair, if his daughter's alive he comes across as a hypocrite. With her dead, it's as if he's trying to save Clifford from ending up like himself. Which is just... so tragic.

Isn't this the guy in the pfp of that youtube channel Aggro Incarnate with Berwick music?

That does seem to be the case, yes.

Erzheimer momento

Yeah, not gonna deny it. I can't write that guy's name.

Ruby is Enoch's father??????????

Maybe why Clifford is also depressed is because his son is a drag queen? Haha sorry that's a bad joke

Ahahahahahahah... Oh God, that's terrible... But seeing how Clifford behaves, I wouldn't be surprised...

uh ok.

Lasers!

Awww I feel bad for him now...

You'd feel worse if you'd been here since the FE6 LP. The guy's been a joke since then.

Also the villain is Pretzel?

Yes. Worst avatar in the history of avatars.

Huh I guess me saying they are delicious didn't come off right. Does he have good hips too?

That guy?! That bastard has nothing good to his name! He was worse than Wrys! Wrys! The FE12 avatar, worse than Wrys!

You mean the last one I did before I stopped before I got distracted with my own LP? (I went back and found it). Though rate he's going he'll earn another.

Ahhh, yeah, that one. Well, I mean, this is Volcens. All the words in the world wouldn't be enough.

My complaint would have been the Claude one... which quite honestly has very little to even do with him. As others have pointed out elsewhere... it has more to do with Seteth and Flayn than Claude.

That's not an issue with his paralogue, though. That's an issue with Claude in general. He barely exists.

The joke is Rick & Morty fans like to circlejerk on reddit about the fact you have to be an intellectual to get the show (resulting in the copypasta)... but Rick arbitrarily turning himself into a pickle was literally "raises spork XD so randum" tier as a joke yet for some reason the same people who circle-jerked about it being a show for intellectuals rather than slapstick comedy thought it was the second coming of Christ. Mind, this isn't a rant about EVERYONE who watches the show, or everyone on reddit. Just a... very vocal cross-section of both. Mind you, this wasn't a minute long joke that got turned into a meme. Pickle Rick was a full episode.

I see... So somebody once said something along the lines of the copypasta unironically? That's a depressing thought...

Or perhaps, this is just my interpretation of what the joke is, and maybe there's really a super-clever hidden meaning that only a true genius would understand to someone turning themself into a cucumber that has fermented in vinegar for a set period of time.

Hmmmm... So let's see...

Pickles have a round, elongated, somewhat crooked shape, not unlike bananas. Bananas are often jokingly compared to male genitalia. A coloquial word for male genitalia is dick. Now, pickles are most commonly green. What else is green? Richard's hair. Richard, best known as a dick. Now, one is a coincidence, two is a pattern. This most definitely has to do with Richard. Richard, called the Lion Prince. Lion, like the Sea Lion, Holmes's ship. Holmes's best scene is the one where he gets the living daylights beaten out of him by Eugen.

Eugen. There. That's your deeper meaning. It's Eugen.

I mean, we did this exchange before. I don't remember when. But I mean, any chance to blame Pretzel for anything.

Pretzel was, like, reverse Marcus. Young, pathetic, supposed to be a godly unit but turned out horrible...

Oddly symbolic that idea, given the terminology references the Rime of The Ancient Mariner. The albatross was a bird of good omen he killed while out at sea, placing a curse on his vessel. The albatross was hung around his neck as a result of the curse, and said curse resulted in his entire crew dying.

In this game, it's a devil sword that Erzheimer wants. Which I guess is kiiinda fitting?

I can imagine the argument went something like this:
VICETOLUCT: "The moderators at serenes forests are left-wing SJW cucks and tyrants. They banned me for wanting to kill jews. Even the worst tyrants of history wouldn't stop someone from killing jews. Did you see Hitler stop anyone from killing jews? No. Serenes Forest is worse than Hitler"
Other guy: "There's so many things wrong with that argument I don't even know where to start".

Hoo, boy... I'm glad I missed the guy. He was mostly gone by the time I became active here.

Seriously, tell me it's not the argument he would have used. I mean, when you look at any of his posts, he used insane troll logic quite extensively, and loved calling everyone left-wing SJW cucks. I mean, he called me one once for reasons I don't even remember but am certain made no more sense than anything else he posted, and that's how he got on my radar to begin with.

He definitely seemed like a loose cannon.

So, the old "he was too dedicated to his work and paid for it" bit.

More or less, yes.

I mean, that was the joke. Though the dodge might have made it more ambiguous.

True enough.

Humans. The one species that can thrive in every clime on the planet from the most frigid wastes to the barren desert. That can reshape an entire world to their favor and even defy gravity to reach the moon. But still dumb enough to mismanage resources to the point they are no longer available due to overuse. Or trust people to be honest in a pandemic resulting in a second wave.

We are... we are weird beings, all right.

Mind, the Barst quad-crit was less useful, seeing as every one of the crits save the first was on someone he'd have finished without it anyway. So it's just funny. Why is it the extremely low percent things that proc are always more hilarious than useful?

You know, it wasn't as hilarious when it got you killed. Remember that?

I mean, given that in Awakening and Fates characters other than avatar could get an S-rank.. why do you assume I wasn't using it in slightly different than literal manner? Besides the fact the literal means the most from a logical perspective.

...Wait... Are you implying I would S-rank Sylvis with someone else?

......

Well, Derrick only deserves the best.

Well, if he had reinforcements, he obviously had men who were slacking off. Possibly taking that nap to avoid being sleep deprived. Like him.

Ahahahahahahahah... Good point.

I mean, I assume it's not his birth-name. That said, he is right. I have no idea what he could have accomplished pumping himself full of BBQ sauce. Is it ironic/hypocritical that I find Dr. Weird hilarious despite the fact the segment is nothing but constant non-sequiturs when I just blasted Pickle Rick for being slapstick? Maybe. Do I care? No. If anything I find it the irony hilarious.

People tend to go into things with a different mindset when they're put up on a pedestal. Probably the reason why everyone keeps bashing Berwick Saga in response to my endless praise.

I've been thinking about doing a version relating to a certain character when he inevitably returns for a while now. No, not Volcens either. He barely goes away.

Hmmmmm... Any hints you might be willing to share, as to who this mysterious person is?

Incidentally, why am I reading the "guy is brought down to 1hp" with the Windows error message sound in my head? That's not even part of the song.

I mean, a guy going down to 1 HP without being crippled is as garbage as getting an error.

I mean, if it were a different colour, she'd be Sapphire (no really, rubies are just red sapphires).

But there's already a Sapphire in Berwick! Err, more or less.

General Ward destroys Clifford with Facts and Logic.

I like how the part you quoted wasn't even Ward destroying Clifford.

This is Reese taking the reigns hard. I'm surprised Volcens doesn't bother to remember to screw this up later.

Volcens probably doesn't even know who Arthur is. Or his father, for that matter. He just heard the word "traitor" and screamed "KILL HIS WHOLE FAMILY". Sienna convinced him to only banish them instead.

Desert of death 2.0. Getting flashbacks to New Mystery. ABORT. ABORT.

Don't worry, it's far less awful than that.

why is my brother's hammer an axe now? wtf? Didn't they test this name before they released it?

Now I'm wondering if that's a typo or you're legitimately complaining about a name not being tested.

Either way, this may not be a hammer, but it's definitely going to hammer in some heads.

Classic Morgan. Still the most generic villain in FE/Kagasaga.

I like how you include him in KagaSaga even though he's only there because I put him there.

Hah! That's actually so appropriate.

Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever asked - have you played Berwick Saga before, or is this LP your first exposure to it?

(Incidentally, that's the 3rd in the chain of posts and reposts that got me banned from that place)

Wha... why would that get you banned? Unless you neglected to give credit to the original creators of the things you reposted... that's always a big no-no in Reddit, from what I've seen. And, well, rightfully so, I believe. Why should anyone get credit for things they didn't make?

Huh... that's legit interesting.

Also, what's with the horns? Why does everyone have horns or bunny ears? Why can't anyone just be normal?

Phooey...

...Wait, did Doc just decapitate Martel and put her head in a bag? Huh... I approve, but... damn.

It took me a moment to realize it was an edit. I was wondering what was with the bat.

You've already seen all of them though, and already commented on them at least once.

Yeah, but only just now I'm starting to notice the names. Look, they're hidden behind textboxes, okay?

(Also, don't you mean "Cuora... Give me the bat..." instead?)

That'd work too, I suppose.

That's WESNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTH!

I figured, I just wanted to point out that it was different.

(Incidentally, Rapphlesia and Tinytiger were doing a co-op LP of that: RIP them both i guess)

Yeah, that kinda died, didn't i-- Wait, Rapphlesia and Tinytiger? Where'd Tinytiger come from!?

Among other things...

Did she just lift that with one hand? Wow...

Nope, but:

(Which heavily clashes with this, but eh...)

Wait, what...? The game made Derrick's daughter playable but not Derrick. How gutless.

(Also, he actually got to make a return in the current event... as a generic miniboss with no story or dialogue or anything else beside a freakton of stats)

What an absolute disappointment.

Who's the japanese guy? Game creator?

I think i already said this, maybe multiple times even, but GFL is a great game held down by idiotic developers.

It's not even a matter of greed or anything, as they gain absolutely nothing from any of that: at this point the only sensible explanation is that they are trying to sink their own game so they can shut it down and concentrate on the pletora of new games they have recently announced (kinda like Gamevil did with "Knights Slinger" and the game that replaced it)

(Also, i'd like to mention i didn't have a single technical issue with the game since i changed emulator: that obviously didn't fix the awful balance and other issues though)

Team Fortress 2 is overrun by hackers and Valve has left the game to rot for three years now, but at least it doesn't get ruined by awful updates. What's better, being forgotten or being worsened? Turns out being dead might be a slightly better fate than being murdered.

The hell is that second comment?

HandmadeJubilantGrayfox-small.gif

Moe.

They all work fine for me, but then again Reddit has been acting up in the past couple days so maybe that's the reason.

Could be.

Hah!

That's what everyone in non-CN AK has been wondering: they are rushing events and banners at mad pace to make the new servers catch up with CN, but none of the QoLs that CN got from a while ago have been ported over, including certain operators' rebalances...

Goodness, this is terrible... How incompetent do you have to be?! We live in the era of the internet! The only difference allowed should be caused by timezones!

On the other hand GFL has been doing a great job at making their new servers catch up to the old ones ar a reasonable pace, and updates have been ported almost instantly after the old servers basically beta-tested them...

A reasonable pace?! Not at the same time is already unacceptable! Do they have to code the update all over again for the new server? Because that's just an entirely different kind of ineptitude!

which unfortunately means we also got the shitty new client (which is visually a downgrade of the old one, and also makes the GFL's UID and other things look like a pitiful copy of AK's) very soon too.

Ahhh, how many times have I heard or seen this story play out. I used to be an Imgur user. Then I took a terrible update in the knee.

What a waste of a perfectly good cinnamon roll.

They are in a tropical paradise in summer: if anything it's Ceylon that should take off hers.

Then move to the north pole, and put on a jacket. In that order.

See, this is the point where the meme gets too persistent for its own good. First one was fine, leave it at that.

Also, you might have already noticed but there is a new meme around now:

(There was a MUCH better version of this exact same post, but i can't find it anymore: most likely got removed by the stupid mods for being a duplicate)

I'm afraid I haven't noticed it.

What's with this game's cast and hating specific pieces of food?

It's not piss though...

Link seems to be dead, so I will conclude that I am entirely correct and it is piss.

Hah!

?

To be honest, I forgot why I even said that.

tenor.gif?itemid=15696429

Ouch...

Which is NOT an italian word...

What!? Do you mean to tell me not all Italians speak like stereotypical mobsters? That cannot be...

In other news, all of Spain isn't Andalucia. Shocking, I know.

That's her all r--

...Granny. This one is called Granny. A... Amazing.

"Wait, it's all Belgrade?"

"Always has been"

Maybe the real Belgrade was the friends we made along the way.

I'd also like to mention that in GFL all enemy factions are hostile towards each other as well as the player, which works perfectly fine with the context... until Isomer, where you are forced to kill or avoid Belgrade's forces (which are labeled as KCCO aka neo-KGB for some reason) even though it's explicitely stated in the cutscenes that you are working alongside them AND that they won't be targeting you: which is idiotic, because they could have easily made them into friendly NPCs (like they did with the KCCO forces in Chapter 10, before their betrayal) or at the very least design the maps so you couldn't access them and viceversa (like they also did in Chapter 10 when the KCCO was still on your side) and failing all that they could have adjusted the story to explain why the [email protected] you need to battle your way through your allies as well (like they did in CT when you briefly coperated with SF against the KCCO), but no!

And that's not even the biggest plothole of the event...

Yeah: as i said, the game wasn't perfect but now it's almost as if they are ruining it on purpose!

Maybe they're just trying to test how far they can go before people stop throwing cash at them. Kinda like Nintendo with their increasingly worsening online service.

They put Ruby in GF and called her Granny. Interesting maneuver.

See, that's why it broke. You don't just sit on a ballista like that. It's bound to break the more fragile components.

Her coat looks about as oversized as my coat in TRS.

15bceccd-ce35-4199-858a-016a86471fe7.jpg

I just realized, if Ruby is in this game, then this one's Clifford.

Tell me, is there any piece of fanart or whatever that features this one slapping the shit out of Granny?

Des. Des is the name.

3a34a6d1-421d-4efe-a463-20872b4445e7.jpg

I agree wholeheartedly.

 

Next part tomorrow or during the week-end: hopefully you won't spawn another update before that...

I am truly sorry... You just happened to fall behind for the fastest update I've gotten done since the beginning.

 

Do it:

Spoiler
0fqb6lao o

All right, goddamnit, I'll buy these stupid arrows.

E9xkxx7q o

There's a very desert'y song in the ost, but instead, they just put this one here for some reason. Oh well.

1mnzwjqe o

Aegina? Why, yes. You'll see why in exactly five images. Sadly, I decided not to bring Ruby, which means that we're going to miss out on free Clifford for mission 8. It's unfortunate, because I'm probably going to want to hire him.

Oh, and Derrick misses out on another map. This time, I simply cannot afford to bring him. He cannot move through sand, which means he'd be stuck in those four dirt tiles that Sylvis and Enid are standing on.

Ndyh9wuk o

So this looks like shit at first. However, here's the thing: in this game, it's not just mages that get full movement in the desert. Every single light infantry unit gets to move around without restrictions. With the team I have deployed, we only benefit from the desert, as we can move just fine, but the enemy fighters cannot.

3og0yxix o

Beyond that, there's not much. We've got Nagra and three generic pilgrims to the south, surrounded by enemies that, thankfully, won't immediately start attacking. The boss is currently hiding in the temple in the middle of the oasis.

...Okay, let's address the elephant in the room.

Mzkio58o o

Oddly shaped elephant, I must say.

Gua2qtig o

This is how wyverns work in this game. They have magical weapons. This one in particular deals 21 damage. They also have a shit-ton of defense, as you can see. I'm pretty sure nothing short of a crit could possibly put a dent into this thing. Of course, they also fly, which means most weapons can't even reach them. So how in the world are we supposed to beat these guys?

Simple. Magic.

Cn5m8acp o

Each wyvern in the game has a scale like this. It deals elemental damage when they're hit by physical weapons, which makes it even more of a terrible idea to try and fight them with melee weapons. It also makes them invincible against the corresponding type of magic, fire in this case. However, and this is the important part: they all have a distinct weakness to one type of magic.

This is why Aegina is coming today. Sure, 3 magic, but there are only so many ways to go wrong with -8 wind resistance. Pallas Riana will tear this guy to pieces, and Sylvis's freeze arrows will help too. It's just a matter of luring the wyrm closer...

Afb074lu o

As for the reason we want to fight it, well... Final fortify material. Yeah. I want this.

C4zgttwz o

It's go time. Oh hey, a bounty target. Here is a riddle to guess if you can: who is the monster and who is the man?

...Volcens. Volcens is the monster, and generic flamewyrm is the man.

Tzzncogf oAny priest-folk are also worth a good amount o' gold, so try not to kill 'em if ya can! But if anyone else gets in yer way, go ahead and kill 'em dead.

V5gjislt oUsual rules, then. You got it!

B0p2t7ul o

Tzzncogf oLooks like we might be gettin' a sandstorm in a bit...

Lgjkwhcy o Oh, no... If it isn't clear enough, this means fog. Better Fog Of War on top of Better Desert. It's like Kaga wants to make a better Arcadia than IntSys. It even has NPCs. Though Nagra is no Pent.

Wv5ylpxy o

Oki-dokie, simple rules for today.

A0ugxbbj o

What's the deal with this guy? There's just an old guy randomly waiting by the small oasis. And his name is Horus? Why is there just some random old guy named after an egyptian god?

Oroa2kjf o

The thief closest to us has a panacea. Panaceas are always handy to keep around. I might try to steal it with Thaddy.

Qgomxvlt o

I put Thaddy in his range. Surely daggers don't count as swords, right?

Wvjl56sj o

Well, didn't even matter. Thaddy just dodged.

Bomeab5i oPogswzmf o

Oho! Well, shoot, that changes everything. I might not even have to waste a steal here!

Gnrugoc7 o

Damnit, Owen just about kills with lightning. Perceval can't get to level 7 soon enough.

Nh3iztpf o

'Kay, then. The old-fashioned way it is. Even if it doesn't work out, well, the panacea is the only thing I really want out of that guy.

Tyrfewc4 o

Damn...

2ykah7ic oAb8g2gng o

Okay, Sylvis. Your turn. I like how the ice is green to signify it's actually wind magic.

Ugkvjejl o

Son of a...!

Kisr3wdt o

Finally! Now, please. Let me see that red cross.

Mwtff87s o

Yay. Panacea is mine.

Dhckn8sm o

It was at this point that I realized I sent Sherpa to fight with only his super sword and this piece of shit.

Wfqb4fvt o

The idea of having anyone without cheap weapons to use on fodder is unacceptable, so here, have this.

Bjhg0xrh o

85plsoz5 oThere's a wyvern in this here area, and there ain't a man who she can't burn to a crisp...

Az9mpupq o

...What the hell was that interaction?

Som8iiio o

Oh, and he just disappeared. He summoned a fade to black and left the field.

That man is the most powerful wizard of our era.

Bfiefny2 oCzmyhbty o

Anyway, let's uncover Riddle.

N7tgdlrw oPlcyhlta o

Well, this guy looks fun.

Otdqbbpw oE499s8bn oYhbdhmgz oXv2zloi7 o

Like Garos some chapters ago, this is an assassin, and as such, he's armed with the 80 crit knife. 20 free damage against anyone? Sure, why the hell not! However, here's the trick: He doesn't start with it equipped. This is something that I totally noticed on my own. If we can steal the 80 crit away from him, we can hand it over to Erzheimer, and the rest of Riddle's knives are no problem. We're on a time limit, however: Riddle eventually starts running towards the western escape point. I'd rather not let him leave, thank you very much.

Notice, by the way, that the sleep knife becomes a regular dagger if stolen. Same deal with the poison knife. Thanks, Kaga. Way to be a dick.

U5mjp4nd oSg0wejwo o

Riddle's protected by a guy with Axe Guard and a guy with a sleep knife. That could be annoying.

Ps8mhxbp o

Oh, dangit. There's the fog.

3zzp9abk o

G7jy5qyy o......

V5gjislt oYou got the right idea, keepin' quiet... Wouldn't want to wake HER up...

Lgjkwhcy o He means the wyvern. And yeah, it'd be pretty terrible if the wyvern went after the NPCs.

Huu9ndlh o

Okay, capturing time.

Al52uzk2 oGmnegoav oFnj2nfko o

The knife could have some situational uses. I'm glad I could get it.

Hhm5peis o

Oh boy. An enemy.

At73bkdr oNdffrwus o

I like how the desert clan have desert-colored clothes. Neat detail.

5ak7yl0r o

Kramer can get the kill.

Jcbzz1w6 oOs5gctpc oXp29ulkv o

60 more exp for the paralogue.

Kvcrpopg o

...What? Why would you do this!? This is the stupidest idea!

0hozjeyn oAice0lh0 o

Desperation, too, so even if he didn't have Counter he'd still counter!

Kjlxlxdq oElvpehrq o

Well? How'd that work out for you?

Qo6i9qzq o

Nice, money.

3tiruvdo o63yg7xtt o

Ah, crit!

Xeohbrui oKnsnsmcn o

Sheesh, this is as tough as these puny brigand archers get. Well, aside from that one named guy in the evil Ward map. That one had crit.

Aucxdqmk o

Anyway, the fool made the mistake to sit on a hill, so let's try harpooning an injury into him.

U9dp0cnh o

A shame.

Cdt3ndck o

And there he goes.

3kyjjy0b o

Nice, the injury happened when he died.

4kmomdpq o

31 points to go.

Hsvwq1sl o

Ah! Sleep asshole!

Jr4l2sp0 o

Hahahah-- Adept!

7kpaa2wr o

Oh, no...

Cfuryqms o

Phew... Okay, he didn't fall asleep. Wonderful.

Pcfilpl3 o

Pilum time.

Xw6g8agg o

Disappointment time.

4pbcgcmk oBzqvbqa4 o

C'mon! Stop this already! How hard is it to down one thief?

1f5cfeiv o5xly32ge o

Wonderful. Well, that's more experience wasted on Sherpa.

T20e0jrj oYgsurxvn o

A crit, too. Well, at least he saved up some weapon uses.

Owzfsq2l o

More pocket change.

Ljdmlvkk o

V5gjislt oAll right, listen up, you lot! Better start coughin' up the goods, or I'll kill each and every one of ya!

G7jy5qyy oO God, please save us...

Lgjkwhcy o Hang in there, Nagra, we're c-- Wait, "God"? I thought you guys followed a goddess! The only god here is Raze!

Vvummygm o

Well, anyway.

Wb9wwwhs oW6qa0kci o

Sylvis takes care of this guy.

85atbmhn o

That done, let's not waste any time. Sherpa, rush ahead and protect the priests!

Hvwh96c1 oAhce9sfg o

That's the way you do it!

Ulhmnbyu oZx9hkq6g o

Back with the main group, Larentia windsweeps the axe guard guy.

Qncxnoul o

He healed. Wonderful.

Rfwzejkt oAhvx2s7h o

Sure, whatever. I'm in no rush.

Em2i3vi3 o

Why is there a brigand just chilling in the corner of the map with Supporter?

Qnz9doyr oHwah hah hah... Any second now... They'll come here aaaany second now, and then I'll ambush them and kill 'em dead and rob 'em robbed and beat 'em beaten... Hah, I can't wait to see their shocked faces when I unleash my fury upon them!

Jeftnluq o

Enid jeigans a guy. I know, that's really weird. I'm starting to think I won't get her any kills today. We'll see. There still are enemies left.

Bi61fiaz oYboovw0u o

Whoa! He actually got hit!

J7bmxpko oOveiael3 o

For all the good it did 'em.

Drugaxcq o8nfa6lgo o

It's been a while since Aegina last got a kill, hasn't it?

Qvmgzcxn oYrphxo3s o

Wind skill. Hurray.

X0toxqbx o

See, this is why Aegina doesn't really get fielded much. She doesn't have bases and she refuses to get any.

N7t1enr7 o

The time has come. Let us confront the wyvern.

W5eb3ghf o

First, though, Sherpa returns and gets healed.

Eabfgyiv o

Here it comes...!

Fujabd1c o

I love battles between fliers. They look badass.

Jn48omb3 o
 
7umbubkk o

Awesome.

526dipva o

Anyway, Larentia's alive and the wyrm is within reach of Sylvis's arrows.

Canebjqd o

...You get out of the way first, Kramer. I'd like to have Aegina jump in next turn.

Jn56vlww o

...You know, I think I may've been overly hasty. I should've waited one more turn... Owen and Aegina have both waited, and Sylvis's damage isn't great.

Jtwamrte o

I hope I can at least get a hit in... if she misses, it's going to be terrible.

O7fwdwzc o

Ahah! Ahahahahahahahahah! Heheheheh! Bwahah! Yes! Why did I ever doubt you, Sylvis? You're the greatest archer in the world!

7ytjaabg o

Oh? Who are you, and what are you carrying?

Un9scoif o

3000 denarii and a letter opener. Yeah, I don't think you'll make it out. Let me just down the wyrm first, and then I'll see to it that you suffer an, uh... accident, on your way out.

Xbtplzjx o

So yeah, this is where the mages shine: fighting wyrms. That's 13 damage per pop, right there. She could potentially one-round the beast, provided she nailed all of her shots.

K62szuus o1z0avd2q o

Of course, risking everything on those four shots would be stupid. I feel more confident about two.

Nawxuoxd o

Ahh, nice!

...Honestly though, that could've been ugly if Sylvis hadn't gotten that crit. Once again she proves that she is the best of the best.

Vd0emfoc o

95 experience? That's a shit-ton, in this game.

F53puxpq o

Eyyy, about time! She got an actually good level! Her magic's no longer tied with unpromoted Enid's!

Ng5kbzof o

Yeeoouch... I nearly missed the popup. Thankfully, you can just barely make out that Fortify is mine. Or, well, I guess I could craft pacify. Pacify cures berserk. Berserk is extremely rare and Owen has a pacify orb in his starting inventory. Yeah. There's no reason in hell to craft that over Fortify.

Jirezni4 o

And now-- GOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAAAAAARRRRRGGHHHH I frigging missclicked. I was going to have Sylvis shoot that guy down, but instead I just made her overwatch. Gosh darn it all... baahh!

G0moh5m7 o

In that case, I guess we'll have to rely on everyone else's shitty accuracy.

Hn5k1bmu o

Good. Thanks a ton.

Whwxiqbb o

...aaaaand he didn't move. He's frozen in fear or something. Well. Not gonna complain.

Pwkoehav oIjn1mf4g o

Buh-bye, moron!

Orzjmqfz o

"Just a little further"? Dude, you literally just waited there! What do you mean, "a little further"? You had 100% of the way left to tread when you went down!

Agfvrvqt o

Hurray, money.

N11ncddt o

Now, let's set up the pickpocketing. I can't wait to see that guy's face when I nab his priceless knife off his hands.

And then his life.

Dfu70b3u oSeyio9xv o9qonmecd o

Relief for Larentia. I don't know why I used physic, she could've waited a turn. I'm pretty sure there's nothing left in the map that can harm her. I'm paranoid, all right?

Ld7oshgn o

Okay, Owen. Get me some magic or HP or somethin'.

Typvpprg o

Well, speed is not the gain I would've picked, but eh. Dodge could be useful for those occasions where I screw up royally and you get attacked.

Rjwdwx1i o3maeqmkw o

Ahahahahahah! Yes! Erzheimer's gonna lose his head over this.

Tzzncogf oWha-- my knife! That cost me a fortune! Is there no honor among thieves, ya thief!?

Bda25u8h o......

Tzzncogf oWait... Thaddy?!

Bda25u8h oHello, brother. I didn't think this is where you'd ran off. Judging by the knife, I'm going to assume you are still a despicable murderer.

T6l4q13v o

Oh boy, now we've made him angry. How unfortunate that you can no longer one-shot him with your fancy knife, hmm?

8oykplfj o

First, there's no "our" way, everyone is dead except you and that one guy in the corner of the map. Second, not with that knife, you won't. Third, your sprite looks nothing like you.

8ncdacgs o

Oho!

Masmmcam o

Meh... Well, still. Good show, Thaddy.

Tzzncogf oDamn you, Thaddy! You always were a goody two-shoes, and look where that landed you! How'd you get so filthy? Do you clean chimneys for a living? Pathetic!

Bda25u8h oMaybe, but at least I have a real family. What do you have, brother, other than the blood on your hands?

Tzzncogf oFamily? Who cares about family?! This blood has gotten me more money than you'll ever see in your worthless life!

Bda25u8h oYes... and it will end yours.

Tzzncogf oWhat?!

Bda25u8h oYou've got a bounty on your head, brother. They will never let you escape.

Tzzncogf oA bounty!? That cannot be... Valery, you bastard! After all I did for you, now you're just gonna dispose of me like I'm nothing more than a pawn!? I gotta get outta here...!

25xydjkk o

Ahhh, look at that hitrate! The man in the bright bow was right, the Rossweisse really is an amazing bow.

Qd0tfmq7 o5scsllxf o

Also, Arrowbane, because I cannot read, apparently. Doesn't help that when the enemy has it, it means 100% extra chance to dodge my attacks. When I have it it's more like 30%.

Cwl0d7xq o

Aegina is completely useless, too, due to the wind ring. They thought of everything...

1hzyrauy o

Let's give it another turn, then... Oh, the fog is gone! Excellent. Now we get to confirm that there's absolutely nobody left on the map.

Cz80aeow o

Well, this guy's still here. Still just chilling in the corner.

Qnz9doyr o...Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaany second now...

4mhtkcvi o

Okay, let's give this another shot, with a more expendable bow and arrows. Surely this has to work eventually, no? I mean, last map those axemen got a ton of hits on Ruby despite Axebane.

8amgbqsc o

Figures. Well, time to come up with something else.

Joqy19sc o

Oh, damn, he's running already! Well, no matter, I can block the escape point with Laren--

Ogngxosl o

Tzzncogf oYou think I'll just lay down and die for ya, little bro!? Hah! Hahah, ahah! Never! I'll be around long after you're gone!

...Wha-- Why would you ever do this!? Riddle, I would've thought a guy with a bounty as high as 5000 on his head would be smarter than this!

Tfgoxke9 o

Seriously though, assassins are worth a ton of experience. I hope he survives this.

1xweb0ru o

Nooooo Sherpa! Stop! Okay, this is good, but now stop!

Xtqlexdv o

Fuck! Fuckity fuck, blistering barnacles! The fuck was that!?

Jcgfdwmz o

Goddamnit. Well, I guess that's still 5k cash, but... Bleh.

Bda25u8h o...There goes the last blood relative I ever had... Can't say I'll miss you that much, brother. I've a new family now.

Lttjk1hu o

Can you at least get a good level so this isn't a complete waste?

2kxut8zs o

Hah! Perfect. Fuck my life...

Lhvvjbtp oJzq11yf0 o

Here, have some healing. You cretin.

8pgg95nj o

Okay, Nagra. Time to go back to the base.

M37tmmnb o

G7jy5qyy o...Big mistake.

9y2hcric o

Imagine my face when this happened in my first run. The absolute madman Kaga did the Lentzenheimer trap again.

Kw4svtrv o

V5gjislt oBet you wish you'd thought a bit more before coming here, eh?

Lgjkwhcy o No, not really. I sprung your trap so I could kill you for experience. Heck, you all start disarmed. If I'd taken a couple turns to prepare, Thaddy could've robbed half of you blind before you could even move. But that wouldn't be worth the trouble. Your gear's pretty bad.

V5gjislt oWell, you'll have plenty of time to regret being naive while you're sitting around in the afterlife!

Txzubig9 o Hah! I'd like to see you hit Larentia up there!

Qsze5bqi o

Oh, dear... See, this is why you don't bring Derrick or Marcel to this map.

Lm27xain oQtmtqv0c o

Ah! Erzheimer items! Well, item, actually. It's only the gambler's brace. But while playing the chapter I was for some reason convinced that so was the giant's brace.

Anyway, I want that brace. For Erzie, not for myself. -10 hit in Berwick is awful. However, it won't be easy to get it, for reasons we'll discover soon enough.

Ceugf4ps oFcajr2sp o

For now, let's take care of the phony priests. I don't want to get sandwiched between two groups of enemies.

Pvol7fm2 o

And now, back to the team.

Zi4dbhpt o

Hah! Ahah! Yeah, right. That's going to work.

2fnvswty oVukpbuje o

Well, it kinda did...

Zuxriiw5 oFh3twrm9 o

I'll never get tired of thief archers, I swear. Look at that garbage! They're pathetic!

Op0vlaaq oJ5idem24 o

Nice sword skill. I mean, you're still just Worse Sherpa, but if you keep this up you might be worth recruiting and promoting. This is an Ironman run, after all. I cannot count on always having Sherpa. Hell, he almost died in the main mission already.

P7bwzxvw oRbhpotpx o

And with that, Enid scores a kill.

Ta26k9pu o

Next step, Sylvis one-shots a dude.

Kkeh34uv oIk8ru6jr oPanlv2j6 o

Heheheh... Extra accuracy for the rapid crossbow? Don't mind if I do!

U3outbom o

Finally, let's provoke this guy so he won't even have a chance to attack anyone this next turn.

Wqswbv1l o

Oh dear, fog again... Seems to come and go in this map.

Si5oatug o

Can you guess what's going to happen?

Avyqywur oCnu0vi7p o

A failure. That's what happened.

L2lsvayo o

Thankfully, provoke is actually working this time, so the guy didn't attack anybody.

Xkdflujx o

Still, risking Sylvis isn't what I'd call a great idea. Let's protect her.

Ofy4b4wb o

In the meantime, let's have Kramer go after the provoked guy. Nice, an injury! I... I can only hope you guys'll get this many random injuries on the gambler's brace guy.

Ancptodi o

Predictably enough, the remaining enemy goes after Enid.

4eimflbo oA16ecr66 o

He failed.

3ltxsdv4 o

Aegina Jeigans the guy for somebody to kill next turn.

E1trwfbg o

...Hah! Random cripple, now. Amazing. Seems like the girl is angry I don't use her much.

Mte0cgqo oCwuw5pff o

As the last move of the turn, Enid Jeigans the injured guy for another easy capture. Wow, those wind particles look choppy.

C3z3u23w oBc7ppw5v o

...Aaaaand so does Larentia (Jeigan, not look choppy), because Enid failed to cripple.

Ocwnfeox o

...so you're telling me the injured fighter didn't get crippled, but the guy who was just peachy did. What the heck is going on...

Pdizlquq o

Well, then. Might as well give this kill to Thaddy, since he doesn't often get any. He can use the assassin's knife, but it loses the absurd crit bonus in his inexperienced hands. A shame.

Cukelnbd o

Anyway, here we go.

Z2we2efg o

No? What did you expect, then? You just instantly blew your own cover instead of trying to play along and then stab us in the back!

C1cbcque o

Anyway, Thaddy levels. Strength would be nice.

Ndpzjj1n o

See, this is why you don't ever get kills.

5ky4ntdn o

Enid gets to do the honors with the crippled guy.

V967aacs oQo8fcfno o

Not gonna lie, this kinda sucks. But I can always sell it to axesman.

4f7glult oDid somebody say axes!?

Lgjkwhcy o Not right now, Reiss. Next update.

4f7glult oAxes!

Gb5arg69 o

With all the impersonators taken care of, Larentia ventures ahead to spot the oncoming enemies. There they are!

4groku3p o

Fun fact: "Gorras", in spanish, means "caps". As in, the hat. This guy's name is literally "caps". Well, I guess he does live in the desert. Would make sense to wear a cap or three.

Bda25u8h oHey! This desert stinks and so do you!

Mlrzpfwg o...What? Did someone just talk to me? Damn this sandstorm... I can't see anything!

Xudczcrb o

It was at this point that I decided to take a look at his skillsheet, and noticed he has Vengeful. Jikes...

You know what's funny, though? My dumbass noticed Vengeful, panicked, and then failed to acknowledge the other two skills. Who wants to bet that's going to end in disaster?

Eacuivsg o

Oh, boy, and he's got company, too...

Qqm5xd2w o

...Ergh... What? Why are those two lagging behind? I don't understand, it's a straight line! How can you have fallen behind so badly?

6q7mhurh o

Hey, I just had a brilliant idea! Instead of moving Thaddy to safety, let's set up an ambush with Sylvis!

Assmmiql oEluy35yr o

Hahahah... So long, sucker!

Yrflkpvj oRiebdj18 o

Aaaaand fuck.

Np8ughgz o

FUCK!

Qwfwgco1 o

NO! NOT MY LAST THIEF! THERE ARE STILL CHESTS TO BE OPENED IN THIS GAME! DON'T! NOOOOO--

Ut59e9fl o

Gwwwwaaaa...! Hoo... Oohh... Okay. Okay. Good. Fine. We're fine.

K8msdc4k o

GWAAHAHHHH VENGEFUL

Sd91bg8q o

......

I have no idea how we survived that.

Okay, let's just... look let's... Let's use blizzard now.

Qokqcdmk oDukzpft1 o

If he could get injured immediately, I could disarm him and then take my time to cripple him.

Relsswdf o

Shit, no luck...

7hkoe95t o

Well, fuck, Thaddy's gotta run like hell.

50havdtx o

Thankfully, Gorras has two vulneraries. That'll mean... roughly 2 more chances to injure before Owen can no longer use lightning without killing him. If all else fails, I can Jeigan with Thaddy or Larentia. The most important thing is taking his weapon, really. I don't want this monster running around freely.

Mlwsljvi oGxni12nt o

Nor his friends! You guys don't have Erzheimer items. You're all going down immediately!

Gib5fxfg o32uptqoi o

For fuck's sake, really?

Pahnqfza oUcjzmc2r o

Die! Die!

Rhwntr6k o

Nice, you got your dear sword skill.

Tgo2civs o

Now, is it too much to ask that you... don't get any more in your level?

O5nfn3t2 o

...Yes.

Yes!

YES! YEEEEAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! SHE DID IT! SHE REACHED 4 MAGIC! BEFORE LEVEL 10, TOO! AHAHAHAHAHAHAH, HELL YEAH! SHE CAME THROUGH IN THE END!

Now we just need to survive this map. C'mon, Gorras. Don't you do anything stupid now! Not after she's come so far...!

Psudjoph o

AH! SHE'S RIGHT NEXT TO GORRAS!

...Which shouldn't be too much of an issue, to be fair. If I know anything about this game's AI, he's going to heal next turn.

That doesn't excuse the fact that I only found out he had Pulverize while writing the update, though. Damn my blindness... And I had my glasses when I read his statsheet, so I can't even use that as a serious excuse!

Fhdammr1 o

Anyway, Aegina runs away. She has absolutely nothing to do anywhere near Gorras.

Le49p5lz o

Hurr durr let me heal Kramer, risk Enid's life because I can't read.

C9giegjm o63palhhp o

...Well, she does have that miracle charm, doesn't she? Kramer would die if anything hit him at this point, so this is still the correct course of action.

2fuovpuw o

See?

Lggrkx4k oA7hhm8fe o

I mean, it's a bit of a crapshot, but you know how it goes. If it can kill, hitrate turns into 100%. Most of the time.

Also, that's a miss. Well done, Kramer.

Av1xmxgf o

I don't want Gorras attacking anyone who can retaliate against him, so Thaddy will draw his attention.

U3mw9osp oLnvxmfdc o

Euthyphro time. These two need to die right now. I want no distractions as I fight Gorras.

Yc4lipr2 oWegcwtxx oArvztsbr o

Damnit, Kramer! Your hitrate is immense! How come you can't stop whiffing your shots?!

Bzmkhirs oDmasgbfp o

Oh my God. Please stop.

Kfjjrj6g oAkq7urqe o

Eyy, that worked in the end. Look, I'm using the zanbato for something! It wasn't a complete waste of money after all!

Xnsbcgwm o

Fuckin' finally, Kramer!

Grgop0pd o

Now, let's have a good one. Let me see those green arrows!

Mmtwzqhz o

You know what? Who cares. The most important thing is that LV has become 10. Now I just need to make him happy enough to unlock the paralogue.

Zlxwe0ze o

...Wha... Huh?

Bpjcdw8j o

Gorras just waited! He did absolutely nothing, he didn't attack, he didn't heal, nothing!

Hlfbb01c o

Meh, fine by m-- Oho!

7if3r2af o

Hahahahah, yes! Maim did something! Second time in the run it does something! That's more than I've ever seen in all my past runs combined! She's definitely showing off for the cameras.

V6ptjke0 o

Sadly, he's not the dude with the giant's brace. That one is already dead. A shame.

Tsyc488n o

It was at this point that I began to have doubts about whether or not that brace was an Erzie item, and so I checked. Turns out, it isn't, so we can still get all the Erzie items in this map!

Gj9v80w7 oKbl3u6fa o

Nobody else is anywhere near the guy, so I guess Enid might as well get the kill, even though she's already reached her one goal.

Bsl4ztwr o

...This is getting more and more weird. Now I can't provoke Gorras. The hell is happening? Did he stop to take a shit, or what?

Mlrzpfwg oYes, that is, as a matter of fact, why I've stopped.

Uedfz3v4 o What!?

Mlrzpfwg oNow, if you'd be so kind as to let me finish, we can resume our fight later.

Uedfz3v4 o...Fuck that, I'm taking you down right now! Owen!

Caqfdime oJqtdkztl o

Uedfz3v4 o Owen, what the fuck? What happened to that +33 injury rate?

Mlrzpfwg oYou'd attack me with my pants down? Ohhh, now you've made me mad. I will utterly pulverize you!

Iflp0rvd o

Mlrzpfwg o...After I'm done healing, that is.

Gptsasut o

I... still cannot provoke him. He really is going to remain stationary on that random tile.

...Why?

7jobuh8b o

Again. Try again. It has to work at some point!

7jobuh8b o7todt2al o

C'mon, please... Pleaseeeeee...

O29usa0t o

AAAAAAAA-- No, no, wait, hold up. Why isn't he using Pulverize? The first time around, I didn't even notice he had it, so this was scary enough, but now... Now this just begs the question. What the hell is this enemy's deal? He randomly became stationary, he doesn't use pulverize, he just... What!? Is the game just taking pity on me for being unable to read!?

Mlrzpfwg oWell, I want to give the guy a fair chance. He's clearly not suited to fight, and yet you have him do it anyway. The least I can do is give him a chance to defend himself.

Kexfg14m oI can't believe this random brigand is a better person than our tactician.

Uedfz3v4 o Owen, you damned fool! Vengeful! He has Vengeful, it's a trap!

Wvrcipvu o

Oh, thank God... For once, I'm glad my unit failed to dodge. If he had missed, Owen could've triggered Vengeful on the counterattack, and that... would've been his undoing.

Crgn1u7k o

Okay, so here's my next idea. Everyone unequips their weapons so they can't counter and get a faceful of Vengeful.

8ja4ick6 o

And now Owen runs for dear life.

Dwhednr0 o

...yep, he officially does not move. What the fuck.

Mlrzpfwg oWhat did you expect? I still haven't finished crapping! 'Sides, I've no quarrel with you guys. The boss is dead, so just... get outta here, and I won't pursue you.

Queomkal o

Might as well take advantage of the situation. Now that he's waited, he couldn't possibly attack Owen!

Tnldujhw oIewp6bnx o

Yes! Yes, that is great! Took you long enough, Owen, but it worked in the end!

Mlrzpfwg oFigures... your tactician is a seriously ruthless man, you know that?

Kexfg14m oI am truly sorry...

Mlrzpfwg oSigh... Oh, well. It was a shitty life, anyway.

4rkkv452 o

D'awww... He didn't unequip the brace. Well, no matter. We wouldn't have had time to take it, anyway. The axe comes first.

Xywebdg4 oWaarvlay o

Joink! Hoo, boy... that was so dangerous on so many levels, but we somehow made it.

Mlrzpfwg oWha... My axe! You won't even let me die fighting!? You're the worst kind of person!

Qhkcpzgg o

Now, just in case he decides to start moving, let's surround him.

Kexfg14m oTactician, sir, I really don't feel comfortable with this--

9qk5ifz8 o Nonsense. You may go. It's almost turn 20. I don't want you turning into a garbage bag and killing someone.

Kexfg14m o...! H-How could you know...!?

Uedfz3v4 oJust leave, damnit! I command you!

Gkrqmjnu o

Kexfg14m o......

Tbeas9yr o

And now, it's Jeiganing time. The crit annoys me, but lately I've noticed that, when you can't do something like Mercy + lightning, it's best to give the enemy paper cuts before bringing them to 1 HP. More chances to cripple that way. So as risky as the crit is, it's best that we do this instead of just bringing him straight to 1 with Larentia.

1azrdhb6 o

Mlrzpfwg oAnd now you're torturing me... Toying with me... I know I'm a brigand, but isn't this too much?

Uedfz3v4 oWill you stop complaining already? I'm trying to take you alive!

Mlrzpfwg oWhat!?

9qk5ifz8 o Yeah, that's the only way I can get that brace you have. Erzheimer wants it, you see.

Mlrzpfwg o...what... Erz... himmer...? Who's that?

Lm39qar6 o

...No, c'mon, don't do this to me now...

B6dandh9 o

Okay, we've one more chance if this fails...

8ausoodx o

Oh thank God.

Z48giiqo o

He's all yours, Larentia.

Mlrzpfwg oHuh... You really did take me alive. I was wrong about you. Other tacticians wouldn't have spared anybody. Here, take this, since you wanted it so badly.

Xkeqchs8 o

Mlrzpfwg oI won't need it from here on, anyway. Now that the rest of the crew can't come after me, I'm going to turn my life around. Thank you for giving me a chance to escape this lifestyle. I won't waste it.

Mlrzpfwg oBut first... would you kindly mind letting me finish my shit already!?

R57jkbwn oPj4xatdi o

Larentia gets a garbage level. Wonderful.

Nn9ucgqf o

...Oh right. This guy's still here. Hah! You know what? I think I'll just leave him. I really don't feel like walking all the way overthere for 30 experience points.

Fbadlhvr o

That's a wrap.

What a weird update. Not only did we fulfill a ton of game-long objectives in this one random map (Enid's magic, Kramer's level, fortify), but there was also the whole business with Gorras and the dude in the corner. I can't say I understand them, but their actions led to their survival, so... Huh. Maybe they were the smarter brigands, after all.

Anyway. I went ahead and checked, and there are no more paralogues, so next time, we will move to the next chapter. We'll get our first promotion in the next update - contrary to my predictions, it is neither Arthur nor Ruby, but Enid. It's a pretty cool event, so look forward to it. Also, Volcens. That is always great. Until then, you know exactly what I'm going to say.

Stay hydrated. It's too hot, this summer.

Seriously, why is there a boob window in the gremory's dress?

Well, in demonology Gremory was a male demon who held powers of seduction over women.... despite, you know, having the appearance of one in spite of being male. Does this mean every female in Three Houses is a trap? Did they simply not think about the implications? Didn't they test this name before they released it?

Now I'm wondering if that's a typo or you're legitimately complaining about a name not being tested.

Long story short, the Third-Rate Gamer, a parody of the Irate Gamer, used to have a tendency to ask "didn't they test this game before they released it?" every episode. Then came the Paperboy episode where he complained the character had grey hair, which implicated he was an old man. Leading to him questioning "didn't they test this name before they released it?"

Ahahahahahahahahahahahahaha... Really, I think it goes for all modern FE except Echoes. Three Houses may be Better Than Fates, but still, every single class other than general team fortress knight 2 finds a way to show off women's cleavage or legs. Obviously doesn't happen with males. Seriously, why is there a boob window in the gremory's dress?

The best, aka worst, thing is that everyone has to wear a thong and show of their butt cheeks all the time. Totally doesn't look silly if it's done by a big, bulky unit like the Awakening Great Knight. 

In any case, I'm most definitely not going to defend anything the post-Awakening games did in that regard. Not even Echoes. Worst has to be this embarrassing porn shot from Mathilda:

Notice, by the way, that the sleep knife becomes a regular dagger if stolen. Same deal with the poison knife. Thanks, Kaga. Way to be a dick.

Yeah. So many knives, so few worth stealing. The Bolt Knife would be nice, but it also happens to be the one he has equipped.
Although I don't actually know which weapon he favors when attacking. Maybe he goes for one of the status ones. In that case I suppose would be possible to get both.

In any case, Riddle is just weird. He has the largest bounty by far, and yet he is so easy to catch. Sure, he can swim and will try to run away after the first round of combat. But the escape spot is easily blocked. And if it's done by Larentia, he can't even attack her.
Also, while he can reach the escape point in 2 turns, his first turn will put him on a cliff, where he is an easy target.

I like how half of these are just listing the skill's weaknesses. Seriously, how's RD being percentage procced supposed to prove that it's actually good?

And, to be frank, it seems more difficult than it's worth to make this skill truly work. You more or less have to one-shot the enemy, otherwise it's no different than a regular enemy phase fight.

Multiple of those can be combined with Wrath with some effort, sure. The results are usually beautiful. And maybe I'm actually willing to list the limitations of things and admit it's not perfect?

So this looks like shit at first. However, here's the thing: in this game, it's not just mages that get full movement in the desert.

This is how wyverns work in this game. They have magical weapons. This one in particular deals 21 damage. They also have a shit-ton of defense, as you can see. I'm pretty sure nothing short of a crit could possibly put a dent into this thing. Of course, they also fly, which means most weapons can't even reach them. So how in the world are we supposed to beat these guys?

Simple. Magic.

Really, so you could get softlocked if you have no magic and archers.

Each wyvern in the game has a scale like this. It deals elemental damage when they're hit by physical weapons, which makes it even more of a terrible idea to try and fight them with melee weapons. It also makes them invincible against the corresponding type of magic, fire in this case. However, and this is the important part: they all have a distinct weakness to one type of magic.

This is why Aegina is coming today. Sure, 3 magic, but there are only so many ways to go wrong with -8 wind resistance. Pallas Riana will tear this guy to pieces, and Sylvis's freeze arrows will help too. It's just a matter of luring the wyrm closer...

Friendship with Sylvis ended, I now use the Aegina.

Okay fine, I know you're using Sylvis anyway, but it's 1 damage, I say it counts. (Okay, -8 res, but why is the res reduction so high?)

Like Garos some chapters ago, this is an assassin, and as such, he's armed with the 80 crit knife. 20 free damage against anyone? Sure, why the hell not! However, here's the trick: He doesn't start with it equipped. This is something that I totally noticed on my own. If we can steal the 80 crit away from him, we can hand it over to Erzheimer, and the rest of Riddle's knives are no problem. We're on a time limit, however: Riddle eventually starts running towards the western escape point. I'd rather not let him leave, thank you very much.

Notice, by the way, that the sleep knife becomes a regular dagger if stolen. Same deal with the poison knife. Thanks, Kaga. Way to be a dick.

Ah Kaga, harkening back to Thracia only when it hurts.

That is always great. Until then, you know exactly what I'm going to say.

It's Reese time, isn't it?

MRW Lysithea gets Dark Spikes right before the DK fight and I have Rally Spd and Str as well.

Really, so you could get softlocked if you have no magic and archers.

Just lovely.

No, you won't get softlocked. For one thing, it's an optional side mission you can cancel at any time. In fact, these guys never show up in main missions at all.
Also, the objective here is Seize. You can easily do that without ever getting into the Wyvern's attack range.

I am Pikachu here.

In my defence, I wasn't thinking on this map being where you could softlock because of wyverns.

Also really? I've been saying Kaga got lax as a joke but it seems doubly strange that there would be no wyverns on any main maps when they're clearly the kind of enemy that could be a lategame threat and still be designed around.

Also, either the devs got tired halway through the process of lorebuilding and half-assed the rest or they are playing big favouritism there.

For instance, canidaes are neatly divided into dogs, wolves, foxes and furries hyenas, whereas felidaes are all lumped together (furries included) just like that.

But wait, lions actually get their own race instead... WHY???

Same for rabbits and onis vs. all other rodents and demons, or reptiles being classified so neatly they went as far as to distinguish between dragons, wyverns, chinese dragons and kirins more chinese dragons while birds of all kinds all share the same single race, and Aegirs are basically just "things that swim".

Yeah, well, in other news, Wario doesn't really say "D'oh, I missed!", Luigi killing himself in Luigi's Mansion 1 was just a glitchy shadow, and the ocean isn't really blue, it's just the sunlight reflecting off it.

Who cares at this point? Just the fact that Luigi's beta model was discovered 24 years and 1 month after the game's release is epic enough that it no longer matters that's not what the texture actually says. Not that it ever did.

Well that's true, on the other hand I always wondered why people though Mario said "So long Gay Bowser" not only is that not what it sounds like as he says "Long-ge" not "Long-gay" but it's just some italian accent on "Long"

That is true I'm not saying it ain't cool, in fact iirc I said it was pretty cool but you cropped that out I think. Eh.

Back then I didn't even know the very concept of hacking or modding, but I still downloaded a modding tool that I didn't understand just so I could get Luigi. It was a great day.

That's absolutely hilarious, by the way. Who's the best Excalibur user: the designated wielder of the thing, or random monocle guy we picked up in the desert?

You mean random desert monacle dude that can use his hips to fool me? Also yeah his magic is better by a bunch lol.

That is always great. Until then, you know exactly what I'm going to say.

Btw how do promotions work in this game? I know it's reaching stat benchmarks but is it like an honor bestowed upon them or what?

The bane skills trigger when the game calculates that an attack would have hit. If that happens, it rolls again with the hit rate lowered to a max of 33%.
In other words, no matter how overkill your accuracy is, you will never have a chance higher then 33% to actually hit.

Well that's true, on the other hand I always wondered why people though Mario said "So long Gay Bowser" not only is that not what it sounds like as he says "Long-ge" not "Long-gay" but it's just some italian accent on "Long"

I always heard it as "so long king Bowser" myself. Mind that made 100% sense so I didn't question it one bit.
Speaking of Mario 64, I'm not sure if this just came up for me because of the youtube algorithm but...

He was the avatar FE12 ironman avatar (Ruben's first LP). He was a mage that grew terribly. He died repeatedly.

He also got benched as soon as he filled the requirements needed to get that paralogue that requires the avatar to be level 5 promoted.

Oh wow. Yeah this is why I don't like modern stat inflation FEs, they require your level ups to be luckier when growths only increased on an average of 10-20% though FE12 isn't a stat inflation game and I love that.

That legitimately sounds super cool.

Edit: @BrightBow That's helpful to know, thanks... hmm so I suppose it lowers the chance to hit by 1/3 and that's why 33% is the max?

No. It's just the cap.

If you attack with a 10% hit chance and your first roll is successful, the second roll still has only a 10% chance for success.
If you attack with a 33-100% hit chance and your first roll is successful, the second roll would always only have a 33% chance of success.

So, I checked the Berwick Wiki ("Berwicki"?) to see what was up with Gorras's AI. But first, let's talk about the various AI patterns! Units will be programmed to follow either one or a couple of the following patterns:

  • ATTACK - Attack enemies in range, otherwise move towards nearest enemies.
  • ATTACK(RESTRICTED) - Attack a specific targeted unit if in range; otherwise move toward the target; otherwise wait on the spot. Will not attack units other than the target, even if the path is blocked. If target leaves the map, becomes regular ATTACK type.
  • ATTACK(MOVING) - Attack any enemies in range; otherwise move toward a specific point. When that point is reached, switches to a different AI pattern.
  • INTERCEPT - Attack enemies in range; otherwise wait on the spot.
  • INTERCEPT(HOME) - Attack enemies in range; otherwise return to designated "home" tile.
  • CAUTIOUS - Attack enemies in range; otherwise move out of enemies' attack ranges (or try to); otherwise wait on the spot.
  • CAUTIOUS(APPROACH) - Attack enemies in range; otherwise move out of enemies' attack ranges (or try to); otherwise move toward a spot just barely out of enemies' attack ranges (or try to).
  • CAUTIOUS(ALERT) - Move out of enemies' attack ranges (or try to), otherwise wait on the spot. Will not attack.
  • WANDER - Move around randomly. Will not attack(?)
  • WANDER(AGGRESSIVE) - Attack enemies in range; otherwise move around randomly.
  • PATROL - Attack enemies in range; otherwise follow a specific set route.
  • FIXED - Attack enemies in range without moving; otherwise, wait on the spot. Can only be provoked by units that can be attacked without moving.
  • MOVE - Move toward a specific point. Will not attack.
  • FLEE - Move toward the nearest available escape point. Will not attack.
  • FLEE(AGGRESSIVE) - Move toward the nearest escape point, attacking any enemy in the way, if possible.

Note 1: Units using any of the AI patterns in red cannot be provoked, and those with the FIXED pattern have a strict limitation on when they can be provoked.

Note 2: Also, units that are crippled or have no usable weapons left will usually switch to regular FLEE type.

Note 3: The CAUTIOUS patterns have an oversight: they only look at your units' attack ranges for weapons in the inventory itself, not for weapons in bags!

 

Now that we know all this, let's see Gorras's AI. He is programmed to:

  • Start the map on ATTACK. 
  • After attacking/being attacked for the first time, switch permanently to FIXED.

Which seems like the dumbest idea ever, but more power to him, I guess...
