That's kinda terrible, not gonna lie. Wait, but what does the link have to do with what I was talking about...?

Actually, the relevant part was only the first couple panels there, but i didn't feel like downloading the whole thing, cut it, upload it and then link it, so i just skipped to the last step.

I... sorry, but it's still difficult for me to take this seriously when one minute we're having this absolutely badass, serious, no-nonsense sequence with Beardman getting arrested, and then suddenly, Yellow Anime Girl with Bandaid on her Nose.

I forget who mentioned it, so I'm not sure who to quote for this, but I want to clear up a misconception regarding in-universe history: The Lazberian Empire was not founded by Jugudi people, but by citizens of the Empire of Gerxel fleeing from Lieberia after Carluon killed Kalbazan/Gerxel in Lieberian year 34. So we can't directly blame Jugud for Lazberia's problems. (For those of you who haven't seen it, I have an overview of the TRS series timeline in the OP of the Berwick Translation thread. I also wrote almost all of the article on Lazberia on the FE Wikia, which gives a bit of a deeper look into Lazberia's history, though I do need to respell some place names.)

Confusingly, I have no idea where the inborn ability to use magic comes from, but I assume that nebulously "from the emiyu" is a good guess. The Jugudi as well as all the native tribes of Lieberia (i.e., Zoans & Salians) were able to use magic, so it's a little unusual that the natives of Lazberia were unable to use it whatsoever before ethnic mixing post-antiquity.

 

But while I'm at it, I'd also like to bring up a completely different backstory for Berwick Saga that never came to be, as the setting apparently underwent an extensive rewrite early on. (Translated from an old deleted post on Kaga's blog) :

Spoiler

To the west of the Lowland Continent, there is a smaller island continent called Arcana. In the days when the Lowland dwellers still lived in caved, there was already a unified and highly civilized nation in Arcana.

This "Empire of Arcana" prospered for the length of a millennium. They built many colonies on the savage western coasts of the Lowland Continent. They gave the name of the two-bodied god Lazberia to this remote region, but the Lowland aborigines later called the region Berwick.

  • The god Lazberia symbolized destruction and creation; it was half-male (Raze) and half-female (Veria).

  • "Berwick" comes from the legends of the divine beast Wyrrock (a dragon) that had been handed down in Istonia, syncretized with the legends of Veria.

Those who resisted the Arcana were slaughtered without mercy, and the aborigines feared the Arcanans as devils.

But approximately 600 years after coming to Berwick, the Empire of Arcana disappeared, destroyed--specifically, sunk into the sea--overnight by the eruption of the volcanic Mt. Rivera. (This marks the first year of the new age.)

The remaining Arcnans living in the coastal cities tried to rebuild independent nations, but each one fell to ruin due to squabbles among them for supremacy, as well sat he rebellion of their slaves. By the end of the 6th century of the old Arcana calendar, only the ancient republican city-state of Anise on the Beltria Peninsula remained.

These Arcanans of Anise, fearing attacks by their "barbarian" neighbors, committed an act of desperation. By analyzing ancient techniques that had been sealed away, they created a gemstone that emitted terrible magical power. They gathered the best children from among their remaining slaves and brainwashed them, training them to become a powerful order of mage knights: the Holy Knights of Raze.

The courageous and daring aborigines could not hope to lay a hand on the powerful mage knights, and within a few years, the Lazberia region was unified under the Republic of Anise. With that, the Republic became dominated by the sorcerer-priests who pulled the Holy Knights of Raze's strings, and they reigned for about 500 years over the new Holy Empire of Lazberia.

In AC (Arcana calendar) 677, the Lazberian Empire's ruling clergy—with their harsh laws and harsher caste system—were overthrown by a populist revolt, and the Kingdom of Veria was established. In the following year, the Berwick League was formed by the Kingdom of Veria and 12 other smaller realms that had been freed from the Empire.

This League lasted nearly 200 years, and after a number of transformations, it is now a union of 15 provinces of Veria (5 ruled directly by the royal family, 9 by dukes, and 1 by the Head Temple) and 17 smaller states (kingdoms and free cities).

It is now the 3rd century JC. A priest called Mik Galma, who had been assigned to oversee lands to the east, declared independence and formed the Kingdom of Raze. Galma, whose heart burned with the ambition of ruling the continent, invaded the neighboring countries alongside his four children, and ten years later, he formed an Empire. This Raze Empire stands in opposition to the Kingdom of Veria, which is now embroiled in its own civil war.

 

>> This was the setting for the early days of Berwick Saga. This whole new system and setting ended up seeming a bit too crazy/convoluted, so to avoid confusing the TRS fanbase, we decided to re-design the setting for the new game from scratch.

 (Don't ask me how these calendar dates work, or where Istonia is, because I haven't got a clue.)

Worth noting is that "Ar-Cana" (with an interpunct ・ in Japanese) is the name of Morse, Mimae, and Rebecca's race of immortal humans. They accompanied Miradona when she came to Lieberia, and then just fucked off and left her all alone. Great job babysitting the all-powerful toddler, guys.

Yeah, that's probably me.

And that's a shame, because I was having fun calling racists idiots who ruin everything they touch, but alas the joke's ruined now.

I'll now just have to make some jokes about the overzealous, but I feel like they won't land as easy.

Grrr...

Also Ruebhen is super evil now, neat. 

Neat's the word, yes...

 

On a serious note, I have to agree with Golb here - don't take this the wrong way, but making a reply that spoils the two important things that happened in the update, barely an hour after the update was released, and with no spoiler boxes was a bit of a dickmove. It's not easy to avoid, you know?

In the future, could you please use spoiler boxes like everyone else? Your replies aren't anywhere near as long as the rest, but since you always, without fail, quote all the deaths... Well, it'd be nice to avoid spoilers. Thanks in advance.

Well, you're not missing much. Just an old sprite webcomic about the original Final Fantasy. It was popular for sure and had a huge impact on the genre, but it didn't exactly age well. Nor did it really improve during it's 10 year run, be it art or writing.

I see... well, I haven't played much of anything Final Fantasy, much less the original, so I doubt this'd be a fun read for me.

I get the presence of the D-man

Good.

but I'm not sure what Axel is doing here. He can't hit things at the best of days, let alone speedy thieves in the forest.

He's here because I was hoping he'd rob Erzheimer items. Not... not much else, really. By all means I should've brought Sylvis instead.

Kramer, you can of course do what you want. But don't expect other people to die for your sword boner.

Sigh...

Yeah. I would rather not do the lategame without a bulky unit with Provoke. And I think I'd rather get Ruby to Paladin then Elbert to 20 Spear.

Ahahahahahah... I'm going to have to do both fuck my life

Technically there is a second one on the final map. But it's not like you can give Erzheimer that one.

Yeah, I... I think it's a good idea to get this one instead.

Surprised you didn't comment on the hilarious 50% chance of backfiring. This weapon literally averages the same amount of damage to it's user then to it's targets.

Didn't comment on it because I figured it spoke for itself. Like the divine brace, this is one Erzheimer item that you cannot easily get otherwise... but unlike the divine brace, you don't want to keep it. This is an accident waiting to happen. Erzie can have it.

I have this keep happening too. Pretty embarrassing considering they are not even using the same icon, even if they are very similar.

Similar enough that, if you don't see them back-to-back, it's easy to confuse them.

I can't help but notice you didn't mark the range of the guy with the Sleep Orb.

You don't say?

Maybe a Lance would have been better since it prevents any chance of getting countered.

All in all, it was a dumbass move.

Well, there goes Watchful. And maybe Larentia too, depending on what else this guy is packing.

In a way, Clifford saved Larentia's life. If he hadn't been around, the sleep guy would've started to attack her with swarm.

So this is you playing it save?

This is me trying to play it safe and failing horribly because I'm a piss-poor tactician.

At least Derrick will be fine. Can't die if you never even reach the enemy.

See, Derrick is invincible. 10/10.

This is an accurate assessment if I've ever seen one. No need to rub it in, though.

Baaahhh...

Well, unless you can seize immediately, that's a dead Clifford. Not like any of the bandits surrounding him will capture him.

Yeah... about that...

Or that's a dead Clifford. Oh well.

Eyup.

To think Ward was praising Clifford's skills in front of Reese and then he goes and gets himself killed the first day on the job.

This whole situation is so stupid...

Sooo... who's gonna tell Ruby? Or Ward, for that matter.

0oeawyck oNo... My father is... dead...? It can't be...

3cxl4xfi o...What a tragedy... and just after... oh, Goddess...

Or Alex. Poor guy is gonna go broke now

Xhqpmjzv oNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! NOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRGHH... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...! MY BUDGET!

So Clifford woke up just in time to experience his body being broken, defenseless and no doubt in excruciating pain before the poison finished him off.

Yes.

Damn. Couldn't have been more cruel if you had tried to make him suffer on purpose.

Yes. That tends to happen when you're a horrible player but you still decide to do Ironman runs.

Not to mention the only remaining character with Watchful.

Derrick is more important.

Clifford's life, Ruby's happiness and Alex' business.

Goodness...

Ward's probably gonna be fine though. His wife is dead, his daughter is dead, god knows how many of his comrades are dead. At this point he's probably gone numb from the pain, so this shouldn't even register.

Damnit... why must it always end up like this?

Ah! Ah! AH! AH! YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSS!

Are you kidding me?

Oh.

Oh...

Oh god, he actually died. Wow.

Yeah. I got Clifford killed. Aren't I amazing?

Well, there's really not all that much that Clifford can do that the other pallies can't... He just does it better and easier.

There's lances, and Provoke with bulk Elbert cannot match, and mid shields with Shieldfaire...

Wait, this is because there's only supposed to be 24 paladins! That means Arthur's also in trouble!

Oh my God... Oh, no, please... Don't tempt fate. If that's the reason there were only 24 paladins in the world, then I think this may be a good time to quit and dedicate myself to LPing golf games.

 A typical rapey/slaver Berwick Saga boss?!

eJI1fn8.jpg

Ahahahahah... In fairness, I don't think he ever swore to do that.

Kramer is good character.

Very.

Hey.  Better than Ward in chapter 2's main mission. That was embarrassing.

Didn't I lose Ward in chapter 4, though...?

Well, he did give rise to a "You know I had to do it to em" meme too because of his yearbook photo being nearly identical to the original one. Sadly, I wasn't taught by him the next year, so he remained only a meme.

Ah...

...Or that's what we told the police, anyways.

Jesus Christ on a bike--!

Ah, the classic "Corona" style-cut. Totally in style right now.

Also known as "I don't want to go to the hairdresser."

My parents tried to get me to try out the bun that's so in style these days, but... to be honest, I think it looks terrible.

Of course! I mixed up Perceval with Marcus.

I forgive your blunder.

Nice! I need to rig some luck levels for everybody...

Uhh... no. Just... no.

Or death, if you're Christine or Arina's physical integrity.

Fucking hell, really...? Don't bring these things up!

Meanwhile, I chose Micaiah to kill him pretty much because I just imagined Sothe and Almedha going "GoOd JoB mIcAiAh" after thinking about that memey line and I just couldn't not do it then

...What?

(Also Micaiah having to kill her king feels like a significant hit to her).

It probably would be, but c'mon, it's the guy's final request. It feels in-character for her to grant it.

Raised in it, because that's what happens when you are born in what is considered the most Cathoilic of countries, with Catholic parents, in Catholic schools.

I ended up feeling differently as I got older, nothing too controversial there (as opposed to being frustrated with the church for obvious reasons, that alone wouldn't have made me atheist).

I understand.

Owen looks not so distinguished when he's unleashed his inner bag.

True enough...

It's more like an anti-romcom.

Satire of romcoms.

That's a good putt, it's in the hole and HOGAN'S HO-GONE.

Hulk Hogan? What's he got to do with anything?

...Ooohhh, Phil Hogan. Right, right... sorry.

Sorry, had to do it.

So did I.

In all seriousness, I have a feeling the media's trying to make this the end of it and I wouldn't be surprised because I doubt anyone acted as mad lad as he did. But others are coming under scrutiny, which is no bad thing. And Hogan is in a rare camp of commissioners having to go: the other lad I've heard about took bribes.

Jikes... Leave it to the media to be dicks.

I mean, Disaster Taoiseach did have that hangover interview, while helping act to crash the economy and have no idea how to deal with the aftermath, while the Minister of U[Turns lost his post in under 20 days because of a drink-driving offence four years ago. Point being, drink has damaged both forever.

Amazing.

Nah Faye's not on their level, though I wonder about the father.

Uh... Why are you bringing up Faye, though?

He can smell Razite items.

Also other expensive stuff.

Is that how he became rich?

Ahahahaha... This makes so much sense. He doesn't need treasure maps, he can just sense buried treasure.

True, but you'd wonder how much it would take to have smaller defences that could call upon larger forces when attacked.

Too much for Volcens, clearly.

Course Volcens wouldn't give a crap, but still.

You answered your own question there, pal.

How many others have that chin, mouth and nose?

From what I can tell? Nobody. Besides, it's not just that. If you look closely, the hair is exactly the same. It's a different color, and partly obscured in Lane's portrait by his jacket, but the shape is the same.

Kyza'a also got the unfortunate luck of being a gay character who got censored and who was portrayed badly already.

Yeah, I got those vibes from him. Unfortunately, he had no character and no screentime, so it wasn't even all that clear that he had a crush on Ranulf.

Not that I can blame him. Ranulf is awesome. Shame about him sucking hard as a unit.

Legit, it could die depending on what happens.

That could be... problematic.

Shagaal you say..... Hmmmmmm

I feel like that's familiar somehow.

Like there's some prick who hates the man under him because he's not him.

It's slipped my mind.

Oh, yeah? Nah, you must be imagining things.

This Chagaal will probably die anyway.

His underlings, on the other hand...

Their names are Ent bandits.

Ent bandits.

I can't help but imagine tree men turned to crime.

Hah!

I'm not so surprised. How long have the racists been here?

I've... no idea, but I would hope not long.

For comparison, Grannvale's history was about 750 at the start of Genealogy, Tellius 780, Archanea 140 after Anri, 800 for Magvel and so on (I did look some of these up on the Wiki wiki.). 500 might be smaller, but I'd argue more realistic.

I love how everyone has been around for centuries and centuries and then there's... Archanea, barely old enough to house three generations of people. I already knew that, of course, but it's always funny to realize that Anri was only Marth's great grandfather.

Yikes.

Albatross is some slippery sword.

Friendly reminder that this guy is the only one who has it until the final chapter of the game. And he stands a fair chance to kill himself and erase it from the world.

Clifford is doomed.

Yep.

This 0 defence should have been a thing in FE honestly.

Yeah, it does make sleep a lot more threatening.

This chapter I swear.

Yes. I swear too. I swear a ton.

Clifford stopping drinking has led to him falling off a cliff.

Clearly the drinking was the key to his power.

RIP bad dad.

He didn't even have time to redeem himself...

You're not even as mad as I felt you would be. Therefore, I will not meme on his end.

I'll be honest: when this happened, I laughed for like a minute straight. If anyone else died, I would've been heartbroken - and don't get me wrong, I hate that Clifford's dead too, but... the whole situation was so absurd that I couldn't help but find it hilarious. It's like, every time I start thinking "yeah I think I'm improving, haven't had deaths in a while, doing good", I do something spectacularly bad as a reminder that I am, in fact, still me.

This text.

Read this text and realise three units could have died.

Fate is a strange mistress.

Not gonna lie, for a moment there I was extremely worried that this map, of all maps, would be the one to destroy my army.

That's just disastrous.

Almost everything is wrong.

"Almost"?

I hope you know bad dad died for you to hold this.

And nothing of value was lost byeeeeeeeeeee

Nothing of value? Lances, man! Now I have to promote Adel! Or... well, Leon, but to be honest, it'd be easier to disarm some guy with big defenses and have Adel waste a bunch of spears hitting him, than to pray Leon gets 8 more shield points.

Sleep needs to be more dangerous in FE.

This would be hilarious on, say, that map in RD where I got stuck on the stairway.

Yeah, hilarious is the word.

How that resulted in Imhullu not blowing her up I'll never know.

I did a bad job conveying it, but the purple and black circle was supposed to be Imhullu charging up. Pretzel didn't have time to blast her.

Poor Elaine, being let know she's in the dunce corner for him.

A lot of people are in that guy's dunce corner.

Pretzel is (finally?) slain.

Yup. Or is he? Nah he is.

There should be more tortured souls in the spell, maybe make references? 😛

I don't have the artistic abilities for that, I'm afraid... besides, I took the Shadow Dragon animation as reference. Minus the demonic face, because, again, if I tried to draw that it'd look like shit.

This...... this doesn't end well.

You think so?

This is an apology I guess.

I will not accept it, because it is insufficient.

Hey, they're completely wrecked. It's the best they could manage.

Harriet:

tB2Yt3ZYkNSDnQLiURpZeBDxLoTwhLjSjdGj7yX5

Nice, the image is bugged. Thankfully I saw it before it was deleted.

(I swear I'm not making Harriet and Elaine animals intentionally.)

Well, there does seem to be a pattern...

I also swore he was kinda into Elaine, but I'm dumb.

Well, it could just be me failing to make it clear. Though I did try to give him and Harriett a few scenes together.

Harriet should just be up front about coming out. I don't know that she's into Elaine for sure, but it's the easiest option.

Ah, we'll see about that.

And yes Ruebhen, you are making bad excuses. Build a bridge.

Hah! Funny expression.

That sounds like he's about to be a school shooter.

Damm immortals, right?

Wrong.

That cave isn't a school.

Of course Arran would be the one who doesn't realise Ruebhen thinks he's in a lover's squabble. Too noble and old to think of such things?

Even way back when he never gave any signs to care about all that stuff.

Never go full fedora.

Old men will throw rocks at you.

Or, the ceiling will drop rock shards on you. Either works.

RIP bad parents Albertus and Margaret.

Oof... even to the bitter end, that's what they're known as.

I can't help but laugh myself at the gif, it's like he's laughing so hard that he's shaking it.

Plottwist: the cave only caved in because Ruebhen laughed too loud.

Winter's coming, I can't wait for this track to be appropriate again. I'll miss the sun though.

You will? I fucking won't! For the entirety of July and the first half of August, it was absurdly hot here. Like, "shirt sticks to my back" kinda hot. Every. Single. Day. I'm glad we're going back to the cold, that shit was unbearable.

I also probably destroyed my multi-usb adapter (Well, I mean I could actually still use it in US mode, but why would I want that?), so that's not great.

Clifford is one of only 3 units capable of using Lances. The other 2 are Adel and Leon after promotion. Getting them promoted isn't just a journey on it's own but they also end up in a straight up worse class. They will still be limited to Spears and Small Shields after promotion. No Swords and Medium Shields like Clifford can.

Yeeeaaah... But think about it. Does using Clifford give me the same bragging rights as promoting Adel or Leon?

Clifford shares a lot of traits with Elbert. They both are fairly bulky Cavalier units with Provoke. They also share Shieldaire, which further helps their durability. But even after promotion, Elbert still doesn't have Lances.

Yeeeaaah... But think about it. Does using Clifford give me the same bragging rights as promoting Elbert?

Something I did in my first run, by the way. As early as chapter 8. That won't be possible now, of course, but... there's that.

And Lances aren't just great because of their fantastic power. Since they prevent counterattacks, they can be used to circumvent nasty skills such as Vengeful.

I just... I just want to be happy. Can you let me?

No.

...In all seriousness though, you're definitely right. I don't know why I though Ruby/Artur/Leon/Adel/Elbert could be better than Clifford.

Adel does have Vantage. That's something Clifford doesn't have... right...?

Only on paper: in practice, the slow is pointless when you are actually supposed to one-shot enemies pulling them into pits (and the damage would generally be more useful otherwise) and the AOE is moot when you'll most likely be dragging 2-3 enemies at most anyway.

She actually DOES have anoher ace up her sleeve that lets her carve her own niche, and it just happens to be a rather useful niche for the current content, but she needs to be promoted twice for it and it's not really worth the cost...

Soooo what you're saying is, she's Ruby. Check.

97b1055e-9317-40a0-a23e-2b52b26f01d1.jpg

She's still good enough to do her job, but outside of that Rope and CH would generally perform better when you need them to, and you get the latter for free as a newbie reward while the latter is relatively easy to get and cheaper to raise due to lower rarity.

Mm. Still, this one does have one advantage: her name isn't Rope. Urk...!

e1fd7ca3-32d3-404c-90ee-5d90aa11529c.jpg

She's kinda in the same spot as Vanilla (or Kramer): perfectly usable, but with no reason to do so aside from favoritism.

To be fair, everyone in Berwick Saga is "perfectly usable". With the debatable exception of Derrick. But even Derrick can get some work done, in the maps that allow him to leave the beginning.

It's still being debated wether that's a bug or a feature (not like anyone's complaining about it though)

It's a bug turned into a feature. That happens more often than anyone cares to admit.

Incidentally, Ceia apparently managed to succesfully nab 8th place this Theater.

(And i managed to stay in the 1%-5% bracket too, out of my 10%-15% target)

That's, uh... quite the dedication.

And whose fault do you think it is?

Ahahahahahahahahahahahah!

Also, I'm glad that I was consistent with him wanting to be a fisherman. I'd actually forgotten I'd established that before. Guess he just has a fisherman face.

I pulled her instead:

Absolutely excellent. That's probably how Milady felt the entire FE6 LP, where I insisted on calling her Minerva.

Ah, the memories...

You think so?

Yes. Yes I do.

 

One day i will resume reading the actual LP. Maybe.

Well, this is fine too. Any way you get entertainment out of this thing is good enough for me.

I see foreshadowing.

You don't see nothing. For sure.

Elephent Bandit.

Bwahah!

He almost looks like a recruitable edgelord.

He does, doesn't he? Well, no. He's just a generic.

Is this even provoking him, or just encouragement?

Considering how long it lasted... maybe I should try writing positive provoking dialogue more often.

There's some irony that Clifford was worried about Ruby dying... but died instead.

The worst kind of irony...

Also, now that Ward's lost his daughter and Ruby her father, maybe Ward can adopt Ruby?... wait.

Doubt that'd end well. Ward has no patience for young girls.

It's because he got a major confidence boost from Thaddy's words of encouragement, and is eager to show him what the sword does.

A shame that, in the end, only Erzheimer shall.

...speaking of, someone should probably warn him before handing over the sword. Imagine he starts to swing it around and kills himself.

Ah! well a-day! what evil looks
Had I from old and young!
Instead of the cross, the Albatross
About my neck was hung. ~ The Rime of the Ancient Mariner,  when the curse was placed on said Mariner.

Now if my health were usual, I'd modify the poem to relate to the situation, but dear lord is it a long poem to re-write when your head pounds and throat aches... so I'll have to settle for direct quote. Perhaps for the best. This chapter's too short to write a whole poem on... and it wouldn't be right to do it without the sequence where the albatross is removed... which obviously would be the Erzheimer scene.

This was the right call. Today is indeed the best day to make songs about Albatross. Keep reading, and you shall see.

I got lucky, because I read the whole thing before doing replies this time because I'm a little out of it lately (couldn't you tell?). Total fluke.

That was lucky indeed.

Though... if you happen to be able to use control f (that is if you're on a computer), you might be able to skip back to where you were. This would make it easier to avoid spoilers in the comments. If you're on a phone, I have no advice. But I hope that's of some use.

Good advice.

Seems to be the chapter's theme that people who failed in their duties as protectors die this time, be it parents like Clifford, Albertus and Margaret... or a retainer like Pretzel. I kind of feel a degree of pity for them, in the sense it means they never will get to adequately make up for their mistakes....

Well, without the two of them the entire OC squad would've died here (or worse, in Harriett's case), so... I'd say Albertus and Margaret got to do something, at least.

Clifford, though... he just died a pointless death due to my stupid mistakes. So sad...

or in Pretzel's case even acknowledge he made them.

Pretzel was just insane. I hate him. I'm glad I got to write his death a second time.

Mind, I fully get if you feel different. They were pretty severe mistakes.

I understand this point of view as well, yes.

Personally I just prefer the "Grigori Rasputin" look. I mean, if I got the eyes.. I may as well try to steal the beard and hair... and I've got the genetics for it.

I would try, but my stache doesn't connect to my beard.

(I read them all, just not quoting them) I see then

Glad you have eyes.

I do remember seeing the tank from the little bit I did see of the LP, I remember saying some stuff in there too.

That may be. I remember being confused when you first showed up, because your rank was the exact same as Goddess Serra's. Wait, no, that was Benice... wasn't it? Shit, now I can't remember for sure... well, the point is, yeah. Whatever happened there?

Then's I's Guess's I's won't's do's it's again's.

Urgh's.

Hehehe, sounds funny.

Hence why one of these days I have to do it.

I mean we were made to his liking according to the bible. That doesn't mean an exact replica but I don't think he'll look like a fish or whatever else (I know it's not what you said, it's just an example) either.

Still... sounds a bit pretentious of us to claim that we are God's favorite kids that he made to look like himself, he loved us so much. Us, some insignificant tiny speck in the universe that will cease to exist one day.

Don't get me wrong, humans have done some pretty awesome things, but this nonsense sounds like that old "the entirely universe orbits around the Earth" bullshit that the folks of yore liked to believe. No, I'm sorry, but we're not that important.

I take more of a problem to the fact he can solve the world's problems and doesn't? Like what's the point of making Venezuelans or Africans suffer? Maybe God himself doesn't know what the fuck we humans did with politics lmao.

To be honest, when you start thinking about it God either sucks majorly at his job or he's a heartless psychopath. Neither of which is all that great.

I wonder what the ratio is, like is it more good priests than bad ones or the other way around?

I'm... not sure.

Yeah I'm telling you, the creator is like a Lunatic Reverse FE12 dude so if good gameplay is for you go for it. The game lets you customize the gameplay at the start like with 100% hit and/or crit, or minimum growths or 0% growths or reverse mode! The intended mode is Lunatic Reverse but it has been beaten on 0% Luna Reverse and 100% Hit and Crit... yeah it's insane but it gives you the tools for it.

Hey, I like good gameplay, but I'm not that good at FE. If the intended mode is lunatic reverse I think I'd rather wait until I can, y'know, actually beat lunatic reverse FE12.

The vietzeimer wars lol. And yeah AW can just become long and... long lol. 

"Can"? It always seems to do when I play, without fail! I feel sorry for all the fans, but I don't think I'll ever cry over Advance Wars's corpse. It just seems worse than FE in every way, to me personally.

I uh... well you never know who may not... I mean I knew he was Hitler's right hand man, I just don't know much about it so I guess I assumed you didn't... 

you got me at the start btw, thought it wasn't sarcasm.

Hahahahahahahahah... It's okay, sarcasm is a bit difficult to get when just reading plain text.

Which game is it then? Hmm....

The name is Payday 2, and it's a piece of dlc-ridden shit, plagued by bugs due to its ancient engine - which was intended for racing games, I might add.

It is also my biggest guilty pleasure. God, I love this game.

More so like the type of guy that is "If I can buy it then it's legal" or sth... I mean he isn't shown to be evil just super collector so it probably wouldn't work.

There's a lot of things that could be done with Erzheimer. Mostly involving vases. But it wouldn't be PG13, if you get what I'm saying.

Good night at the time of me writing this, which equates to well like 5 AM over there, so in 2 or 3 or like 6 hours idk what your sleep habits are you'll be up and running!

6 hours is more like it. I am an extremely lazy person. I like sleeping.

Wh-wha-what?! Kramer! No, his hair I mean it has a bit of Orange I can see but the bulk of his hair is... not yellow?

Nope. It's all orange. Not even yellow-ish orange. It's a full-on, perfectly neutral orange.

Wh-how fucked up is my color perception? At this point idk if it's colorblindness or I need to go back to kindergarten. I'm telling you I do see orange in his sprite but not his portrait I... damn.

I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Incidentally, the colors in your list of beaten FEs in your signature are... still not consistent. Yeah... sorry.

In the US? Well yeah, it's very disconnected. It's the center of the world nowadays but the people there live pretty differently.

Yeah, I see.

In Mexico we definitely aren't on a dictatorship (more or less a controversial president loved by one half and hated by the other because he's left-wing and not right-wing) and not everyone is brown, though it depends on whether it's north or south u are speaking of. But it's got a mixture of both, not in proportional amounts though.

In other news, spaniards don't spend their days eating paella and watching bullfighting. Bottom-line, stereotypes suck.

But I love this song! Awww....!

So do I, but it's time to move on.

Shut the hell up, I'm still trying to figure out your hair color... I guess in a way it is orange? Ah... rrr!

Completely orange, man. Unless I am colorblind, but I doubt it. I've never shown any signs of it.

Quite interesting, definitely.

Indeed.

Reminds me of the guy whose name is imperial and he had a portrait and all (I think I came back on the update we saw him) but only difference is that guy sucked.

But that one had story importance. This one doesn't.

Pfft lol hahaha... that sounds funny but I know it's not fun to be reminded of it...

It was pretty funny, but goddamnit so frustrating.

Lol, and after he stabs Thaddy he goes "Well that's it man, wanna go get a sandwich?"

Bda25u8h oI'd rather get some bandages.

Hiyigysd oSure! Here, hold onto my shoulder.

Bda25u8h oThanks... ow...

Damn it stop scaring me by cutting off sentenc-

Never mind then.

Heh... Urgh...

Bruh I just have no idea what the hell. Like how did this map go so wrong? Was it deploying Derrick or sth? Hot damn.

Deploying Derrick? Heck, that's probably the reason nobody else died! Nah, it was entirely my mistake. I should've moved Clifford out of sleep range, and I didn't.

What were the exact things Adel needed for promotion?

30 spear level. Also 20 shield (which he's already gotten) and 10 level (which would be easy enough), but... 30 spear level. With a 30% growth. It's... it's hell to get him there, all right. If you want it to happen early, you more or less have to disarm someone with high defense and have Adel eat through there or four spears just whacking away at the enemy over the course of 200 turns.

Not gonna lie, his and Leon's promotions aren't well-designed at all.

And also how good is his promotion? I know a few points in strength aren't that much in Berwick when your damage output comes from weapons (I think).

He gets lances.

...That's it. A few stats nobody cares about, and lances. Still stuck with only spears and small shields. It's... not a great promotion, to be honest. But now that Clifford is gone, I might want to get there, for the sake of having a lance user, if nothing else.

Shut up Kramer.

I agree.

Wait until I LP FE7 HHM Ironman Ranked. Yeah unless I pull it off somehow, I'm not getting the 5 star survival like that... that is if I ever wanna play FE7 too.

Look forward to it!

See, this is why you bring a healer in every map no matter how easy it may seem, especially in this game.

Yeah... To tell you the truth, I didn't bring Owen not because I didn't think he'd be needed, but because this is such a fast-paced map that I thought he wouldn't be able to keep up.

This reminded me so much of me playing this map for the first time, I had a sleeping Larentia, Arthur and Sherpa...all three died to the sleep guy, atleast I wasn't doing an ironman. 

Jesus... Heck, compared to that, I got lucky!

Losing your only lancer was rough but your Adel and Leon are doing much better than mine at this point, so you might still be able to get one of them to promote.

Leon... I don't see Leon, he needs to get 8 shield points, and that's not easy. Adel, though... if I can just find an enemy I can easily abuse, perhaps I could make something out of him. It's not like I care about my turn count, anyway...

I forget who mentioned it, so I'm not sure who to quote for this, but I want to clear up a misconception regarding in-universe history: The Lazberian Empire was not founded by Jugudi people, but by citizens of the Empire of Gerxel fleeing from Lieberia after Carluon killed Kalbazan/Gerxel in Lieberian year 34. So we can't directly blame Jugud for Lazberia's problems. (For those of you who haven't seen it, I have an overview of the TRS series timeline in the OP of the Berwick Translation thread. I also wrote almost all of the article on Lazberia on the FE Wikia, which gives a bit of a deeper look into Lazberia's history, though I do need to respell some place names.)

I mean, I'm not sure how much of an improvement it is that we are the villains of TRS.

Also, I hope I'm not too late, but SPOILER ALERT FOR THOSE LINKS. I mean, obviously, but just in case, there you go.

Confusingly, I have no idea where the inborn ability to use magic comes from, but I assume that nebulously "from the emiyu" is a good guess. The Jugudi as well as all the native tribes of Lieberia (i.e., Zoans & Salians) were able to use magic, so it's a little unusual that the natives of Lazberia were unable to use it whatsoever before ethnic mixing post-antiquity.

Thinking back to how bad the TRS mages were, maybe they just had so little magic in them that they were unable to pass it on to their heirs? Only Shigen and Sierra's descendants were able to do anything. Because Sierra is awesome.

But while I'm at it, I'd also like to bring up a completely different backstory for Berwick Saga that never came to be, as the setting apparently underwent an extensive rewrite early on. (Translated from an old deleted post on Kaga's blog) :

  Hide contents

To the west of the Lowland Continent, there is a smaller island continent called Arcana. In the days when the Lowland dwellers still lived in caved, there was already a unified and highly civilized nation in Arcana.

This "Empire of Arcana" prospered for the length of a millennium. They built many colonies on the savage western coasts of the Lowland Continent. They gave the name of the two-bodied god Lazberia to this remote region, but the Lowland aborigines later called the region Berwick.

  • The god Lazberia symbolized destruction and creation; it was half-male (Raze) and half-female (Veria).

  • "Berwick" comes from the legends of the divine beast Wyrrock (a dragon) that had been handed down in Istonia, syncretized with the legends of Veria.

Those who resisted the Arcana were slaughtered without mercy, and the aborigines feared the Arcanans as devils.

But approximately 600 years after coming to Berwick, the Empire of Arcana disappeared, destroyed--specifically, sunk into the sea--overnight by the eruption of the volcanic Mt. Rivera. (This marks the first year of the new age.)

The remaining Arcnans living in the coastal cities tried to rebuild independent nations, but each one fell to ruin due to squabbles among them for supremacy, as well sat he rebellion of their slaves. By the end of the 6th century of the old Arcana calendar, only the ancient republican city-state of Anise on the Beltria Peninsula remained.

These Arcanans of Anise, fearing attacks by their "barbarian" neighbors, committed an act of desperation. By analyzing ancient techniques that had been sealed away, they created a gemstone that emitted terrible magical power. They gathered the best children from among their remaining slaves and brainwashed them, training them to become a powerful order of mage knights: the Holy Knights of Raze.

The courageous and daring aborigines could not hope to lay a hand on the powerful mage knights, and within a few years, the Lazberia region was unified under the Republic of Anise. With that, the Republic became dominated by the sorcerer-priests who pulled the Holy Knights of Raze's strings, and they reigned for about 500 years over the new Holy Empire of Lazberia.

In AC (Arcana calendar) 677, the Lazberian Empire's ruling clergy—with their harsh laws and harsher caste system—were overthrown by a populist revolt, and the Kingdom of Veria was established. In the following year, the Berwick League was formed by the Kingdom of Veria and 12 other smaller realms that had been freed from the Empire.

This League lasted nearly 200 years, and after a number of transformations, it is now a union of 15 provinces of Veria (5 ruled directly by the royal family, 9 by dukes, and 1 by the Head Temple) and 17 smaller states (kingdoms and free cities).

It is now the 3rd century JC. A priest called Mik Galma, who had been assigned to oversee lands to the east, declared independence and formed the Kingdom of Raze. Galma, whose heart burned with the ambition of ruling the continent, invaded the neighboring countries alongside his four children, and ten years later, he formed an Empire. This Raze Empire stands in opposition to the Kingdom of Veria, which is now embroiled in its own civil war.

 

>> This was the setting for the early days of Berwick Saga. This whole new system and setting ended up seeming a bit too crazy/convoluted, so to avoid confusing the TRS fanbase, we decided to re-design the setting for the new game from scratch.

Holy shit, that's too much. It was probably for the best that they scrapped this, but... still, it's quite interesting. Thanks for sharing it with us.

(Don't ask me how these calendar dates work, or where Istonia is, because I haven't got a clue.)

Istonia is clearly General Lawrence's birthplace. Truly a remarkable place.

Worth noting is that "Ar-Cana" (with an interpunct ・ in Japanese) is the name of Morse, Mimae, and Rebecca's race of immortal humans.

Ah yes, Rebecca. The character I bypassed because I wanted Kreiss to get laid, and thus we missed out on all the lore.

They accompanied Miradona when she came to Lieberia, and then just fucked off and left her all alone. Great job babysitting the all-powerful toddler, guys.

So... what you're telling me is that, essentially, everything that happened in TRS was the fault of Gotoh?

Damn Gotoh...! I knew I hated him for a reason! That being Anri's Way, but now I have ANOTHER reason!

Last time, Clifford died because I'm a complete idiot. Clifford. Now, we try to forget the last map ever happened.

Xzxwjjvk oYes, he believed it would be prudent to do so.

Lgjkwhcy o Tianna didn't mention that we failed to recover half the treasures, did she...

Xzxwjjvk oThese treasures of the Church will be much safer being in your hands than scattered at various shrines.

Ps4nmuuw oBut what of the sword Balmung? Surely he wishes to keep that?

Xzxwjjvk oIt is certainly a valuable relic, but it is ultimately an ordinary sword. We have no immediate need of it.

R7nmws8l o

Ps4nmuuw oI am glad to hear it. On behalf of Lord Reese, I thank you, Madam Quescria.

Xzxwjjvk oNo, it is I who is thankful! Pleaes express my gratitude to him.

Ps4nmuuw oI will. Take care, Madam.

Lnmhwk62 o

Ps4nmuuw oYes. Archbishop Lebough has also given his approval.

Meoilxpy oI must be sure to thank the two of them later...

Ps4nmuuw oOne more thing, Lord Reese... I have a suggestion to offer.

Meoilxpy oA suggestion?

Ps4nmuuw oRegarding who should wield the sword Balmung...

3cxl4xfi oAh, that is a pressing issue... Such a sword as that of the hero Alcyone deserves a fitting wielder! Upon whom should such an honor be bestowed, I wonder?

Wqewarn9 o

Lgjkwhcy o He already has its namesake. No need to get greedy. Let someone else have it. Preferably someone who can participate in more than one map per chapter.

Meoilxpy oMe? That sword is so massive, I can barely lift it, even with both arms...

9qk5ifz8 o Well, that, and Balmung is a blade, not a sword. Reese doesn't have the Blade skill. Incidentally, neither does Kramer.

Ps4nmuuw oI think the sword should be entrusted to Mr. Kramer.

3cxl4xfi oKramer?! That foolish lad?

Lgjkwhcy o No, but-- wait! He doesn't have Blade either! He can't use it!

Ps4nmuuw oThe soldiers who accompanied him said he looked upon Balmung as if he was talking to a lover.

Lgjkwhcy oYes, he... he also did talk to it as a lover.

Ps4nmuuw oI think he may have an affection for swords far beyond what we imagined...

R90hfzba o

Ps4nmuuw oIn addition, he has certainly proven his worth in the battles thus far.

Lgjkwhcy oReally? I cannot remember a single remarkable thing he has ever done. Heck, I mostly used him just to get the Albatross! I shouldn't have...

Ps4nmuuw oI also have no doubts he will take excellent care of Alcyone's sword. To give the sword to him would only benefit your forces, milord.

3cxl4xfi oHmm... But still, Lord Reese... To give it to that boy Kramer... Is that truly all right with you?

Dvoc79by o

Oh yeah, the game actually gives you the choice. Well, since Kramer doesn't have Blade, there's no point in giving him a blade, so let's just...

Meoilxpy o...There are others who I believe can make better use of it.

Ps4nmuuw oVery well... I will notify Kramer to hand over the sword to you, Lord Reese...

3cxl4xfi o......

And there we go. Rank 1 legendary sword that anyone with the correct skill can use.

Prte9f55 o...Lord Reese, is this for real...? This isn't a joke, is it...? Are you... Are you really giving this sword to me?!

3cxl4xfi oEnough, Kramer! This is neither the time nor place to be speaking such nonsense!

Prte9f55 oLord... Lord Reese...! I will repay this honor with my own body and soul! I vow to be your loyal servant!

Oco0tfxj o

Meoilxpy oSinon welcomes you, Sir Kramer. Henceforth, you shall fight alongside us as a Knight of Sinon!

Prte9f55 oYes, milord! I swear it upon the sword of Alcyone!

Ahhh, there we go. He just obtains the skill out of thin air. How convenient.

Same sword, but it's locked to Kramer and max level units. I don't think I've ever had any unit reach max level in this game, so... yeah, it's locked to Kramer. The upside is that now Kramer is ours forever.

It's a fine sword, but I think it's worth leaving it with Kramer. He can use it well, and more permanent units is not something I'm about to refuse. He may be Worse Sherpa, but Sherpa isn't immortal.

Aavljjon o

All right. Erzheimer.

Nbyhx8l2 o

Please, for the love of all that is holy, do NOT try using this thing.

Pgeqccci oJbbarqet o

If I'm not mistaken, the Albatross is one of the most valuable Erzie items. I guess it's a bit unfair that I've savescummed these denarii into my pocket, but... C'mon, I lost Verda's treasure and Clifford. Cut me some slack.

9xrpb6zl o

All right, so the famous Erzheimer scene. Let's have it.

N4ga3hxe o
 
Bav7z4am o

3cxl4xfi oAh, you are Mr. Erzheimer's maid... It's Clara, correct?

Z1vpznqw oYes...

3cxl4xfi oWhat ever is the matter? You look so panicked...

Z1vpznqw oGeneral Ward, please! Save my Master!

3cxl4xfi oMr. Erzheimer?! What's happened to him?

Z1vpznqw oLet me explain...

4auebvpf o

Z1vpznqw oYes. He hasn't been eating properly, either... He simply spends all his time in the storage room gazing at the sword...

3cxl4xfi oHmm... Perhaps that sword really is cursed...

Lgjkwhcy o So yeah. We handed a cursed sword over to Erzheimer, and now he's all possessed. Who could've possibly foreseen that?

Z1vpznqw oSir Ward, please help me! I don't know what to do!

3cxl4xfi oI will go and see him. I will try to break him of the spell.

9qk5ifz8 o Thankfully, Ward is on the case!

9rmmcqto o

There's the guy.

Hl9rwjfe oHow beautiful you are... For you, I'll do anything... Heh heh...

Hl9rwjfe o.........Heh...

9qk5ifz8 o You know, so far he doesn't seem that different from his usual self.

A9esyl8j o

Okay, so here's Ward. What will he do now, I wonder? Perhaps he'll remind him of all the loved ones, like his vase, and his orbs...

Dnkkyuha o

Or, he'll just bum-rush the guy. That's fine too.

99vcmvdg o

Z1vpznqw oSir Ward, what did you---?!

3cxl4xfi oHe will be all right. A good blow to the head will do him some good.

Rbclvnd4 o......Uuu...uuuh...

Txzubig9 o Bwahahahahahahahaha... Ward: General of Sinon, part-time ghostbuster. He literally busted the ghost out of Erzheimer!

Kg5lq4lq o

Hah! No doubt he just bashed the sword against his knee and called that an exorcism! And it probably did work, too...

Rbclvnd4 oOf course, Sir Ward. Thank you so much... To tell the truth, I can remember nothing since I first held that sword. What a frightening artifact...

3cxl4xfi oI was told that it would take an extremely spiritually disciplined man to temper its dark powers.

9qk5ifz8 o Does this mean Axel is awesome, since he carried the thing all the way here without issue?

Rbclvnd4 oI am ashamed... The mystical hatred sealed within that sword corrupted my mind! How wretched is the accursed life of a collector, that I must be made to suffer such terrible things!

3cxl4xfi o......

5um7cmhm o

Txzubig9 o Hwahahahahahahahahah... I love these two, seriously. Best friends forever.

Krb4oyld o

It's here at last. The riveting conclusion to Lane's lame arc.

Wtedhc5l o

Ah, finally! Savat is here, for once! Lane won't be able to get to Cecily today!

...She's... She's not here, though...

Ps4nmuuw oMr. Savat?

N2dit7qa o...Oh, pardon me, Lady Tianna. My mind was off somewhere else. Can I help you with anything?

Ps4nmuuw oNothing in particular... But Mr. Savat, your face is rather pale. Are you feeling quite all right?

N2dit7qa oIt's nothing serious. I'm just a little tired, is all. You don't have to make a fuss over me...

Ps4nmuuw oStill...

Jtoqyjjc o

N2dit7qa oHow did you---?!

Ps4nmuuw oAha, so I was right after all. In truth, about a month ago...

Wxtv1qma o

N2dit7qa oShe must've got taken in by that man calling himself a baron, and now they've gone and eloped...

Uedfz3v4 oOh, goodness... No!

Ps4nmuuw oIt certainly seems that way...

N2dit7qa oShe also grabbed a good handful of cash from the store here while she was at it...

Lgjkwhcy o Ooooooooooookay... so that's a dickmove.

N2dit7qa oI might not be the world's greatest father, but I would've thought I raised a better person than that... Is this her way of rebelling? Was I too strict on her? Even so, this is taking it too far...

T0gm0izx o

Ps4nmuuw oDid he ever say where he was supposedly the baron of?

N2dit7qa oNot to my knowledge. He's just a no-good crook, anyway. I have no doubts that he wheedled Cecily into stealing the money. And on top of it all... Of all people, she goes and runs away with a man like that?!

Ps4nmuuw oMr. Savat... Have you truly found no clue as to Cecily's potential whereabouts?

N2dit7qa oIt's not much to go on, but an old friend of mine saw a shifty-looking couple making their way out of town.

Inyfxjlp o

9qk5ifz8 o The Pyrenees? Ah, so they're coming to Spain, then! I'll be sure to intercept them.

Ps4nmuuw oAt this time of year?

9qk5ifz8 oMay, to be precise.

Ps4nmuuw oThe entire area should still be covered in snow from the winter... Not to mention that slavers

Uedfz3v4 o NO! NO, DON'T SAY THAT WORD, TIANNA! IT'S FORBIDDEN! DON'T--!

Ps4nmuuw ooften take that route to avoid the eyes of the law...

Lgjkwhcy o Wait, if it's a known fact that they take that route to avoid the eyes of the law... How come the eyes of the law haven't reinforced the security in that route? Oh wait, right, Volcens is in charge of the eyes of the law. Carry on.

Ps4nmuuw oI will investigate this. Lord Reese will konw what to do. If we act quickly, we may yet save Cecily from coming to harm. I will do all that I can to ensure that she returns home safely.

N2dit7qa oYou will, Lady Tianna?! But isn't this too small of a job for the military ot get involved? Especially in times like these...

4kpgcpdb o

Ps4nmuuw oI believe that we can find Cecily and help make things right again. You can place your faith in us, Mr. Savat.

N2dit7qa oThank you... Please do everything you can.

Narulfv5 o

It's not over yet, though. If you recall, Marcel had one scene with Cecily way back, in which he showcased that he's almost as emotional as Reese. That means this is his character arc and he's coming to this mission.

Rlqt4d9d oIf that is your command, Lady Tianna.

Ps4nmuuw oSir Marcel... You were already aware of the circumstances before I informed you of them, am I correct?

Rlqt4d9d o......

Rlqt4d9d o...I heard that she deliberately ran off with this con man.

Hzk0fmxt o

Uedfz3v4 o Jesus fucking Christ, Marcel! She's been manipulated into going to Slaver Central, which is... apparently in northern Spain! Is this really what you should be saying in this situation!? Way to blame the victim... I would never have expected these words to come out of your adorable baby face, Marcel!

Ps4nmuuw oSir Marcel, perhaps you were not aware, but women are more than just dolls that can walk and talk. They have hopes, dreams, and worries, and sometimes they make rash decisions about them.

Lgjkwhcy o Hey! Hey, Reese! C'mere, I think you need to hear this as well!

Ps4nmuuw oIn troubling times like these, many young women look to strong men who can promise to protect them. ...And so, Cecily admired you, and she found she had feelings for you. And despite her reasons, I don't think her feelings were meaningless. I, too, once went through such a time, so I know how she must feel.

Lgjkwhcy oWait... is she trying to guilt-trip Marcel into coming to this mission? What is the need for this!? She's going to be sold as a friggin' slave! Surely that should be enough for him to go and save her!? Or, y'know, anyone else with a conscience!?

Rlqt4d9d oLady Tianna...

Ps4nmuuw oThat is not to say that Cecily does not share some of the blame for her poor decisions.

T9yywige o

Mqravmco o

Ps4nmuuw oYet if we do not act, that purity will be sullied by crimes unspeakable. Surely you cannot allow that. Is that not so, Sir Marcel? Will you or will you not fulfill your responsibilities as a knight?

Rlqt4d9d o......

Rlqt4d9d o...I understand.

Lgjkwhcy o About time you did, too! Goodness gracious, you're almost as bad as Reese!

Tal7xewq o

Ps4nmuuw oAn excellent answer, Sir Marcel. Thank you for understanding. It is our duty to protect all the people we can.

Myz5nkvv o7qa87fp5 o

Interestingly enough, there's a special scene if we decline this mission. Usually we just move on and nothing happens, but in this case...

Pn6v1kmc o
 
96rrixpc o

N2dit7qa oNo, Lady Tianna, it wasn't your burden to bear. And as you can see, Cecily is safely back home again. She actually managed to escape, and she was picked up by a passing peddler and brought here. It won't bring the money back, but I'd give up any amount of money to have my little girl back.

Oxm8ceei oFather...

9qk5ifz8 o That was painless enough, but there's goodies to be found in the map, so it's not what we'll

Nimrixkw o

AHHHAAAAAHAAAAAHHH! FINALLY, I REMEMBERED! I GAVE AXEL THE RIGHT CHARM! HE'S SAVED! YES!!

Bbz7r4u6 o

Anyway, let's go do some preparations. Thankfully, we can still purchase shields even though Cecily is gone.

2wzfebz7 oMr. Savat asked me to fill in for Cecily while she's away. If you're in need of any shields, please don't hesitate to ask!

2wzfebz7 o...Oh, where is Cecily? I'm afraid I don't really know. I hope she comes back soon. I'm worried about her...

6dqazd8z oC34rqzmp o

First, Marcel picks up enough shields to solo a couple maps, and some healing. To be honest, I'm not sure two vulneraries will be enough. Maybe I'll have to give him more later, just to be safe.

Qbwdue5x o

Sylvis sells her freeze arrows and picks up ember ones.

Idi4xdwd oPhx7y8ih o

That's the best description I've seen since the Phantom Corpse.

That is that. Next time, snow map with force-deployed knight. Sounds good? Yeah, it's gonna be great. Pick up your coats, because we'll be heading on an expedition to the frozen peaks! Until then, you know what you're supposed to do. Same as always! Haha, bye!

On a serious note, I have to agree with Golb here - don't take this the wrong way, but making a reply that spoils the two important things that happened in the update, barely an hour after the update was released, and with no spoiler boxes was a bit of a dickmove. It's not easy to avoid, you know?

In the future, could you please use spoiler boxes like everyone else? Your replies aren't anywhere near as long as the rest, but since you always, without fail, quote all the deaths... Well, it'd be nice to avoid spoilers. Thanks in advance.

Will do. Uh, starting now. (Really wish that SF would let you put a whole post in a spoiler box after you've written it.)

I don't think it's too impressive of a weapon. Basically just a Bastard Sword with +20% accuracy.

So I don't think it really gives him that extra oomph that he needs to stand out in the late game.

I guess first impressions can be deceiving.

That is that. Next time, snow map with force-deployed knight. Sounds good? Yeah, it's gonna be great. Pick up your coats, because we'll be heading on an expedition to the frozen peaks! Until then, you know what you're supposed to do. Same as always! Haha, bye!

Next time on Berwick Saga:

Not that this mission makes you long for a version of the game where you would have 3 whole chapters with nothing but snow maps.

To be fair, everyone in Berwick Saga is "perfectly usable". With the debatable exception of Derrick. But even Derrick can get some work done, in the maps that allow him to leave the beginning.

Talking about being good at FE, I played FE7 today trying to go ranked and if it weren't for Boies dodging too many Marcus 80%s, I would have gotten a 5 star ranking on tactics, but everything else was 5 so hoorray!

If you want it to happen early, you more or less have to disarm someone with high defense and have Adel eat through there or four spears just whacking away at the enemy over the course of 200 turns.

Not gonna lie, his and Leon's promotions aren't well-designed at all.

Incidentally, I feel like I'll have to start learning what I see and what it isn't, so whenever I see a color I see as, for example, red I should just say it's blue so as to not look like a fool... that is very difficult however.

Ahah, I gotcha again. The update is on top once more.

Xhpa52fl o

Elbert gears up. He's coming today. Would've prefered to bring Clifford, but that would be rather difficult.

Ezexmcz3 o

Featuring no armories, but plenty of situations.

Yqdrpywk o

Rnwsddzf oA new city, a new name, and a new life await you!

Oxm8ceei oYes, Baron Lane!

8obdcmkj o

Oh boy.

7tvi2eey o

...Well, that didn't take long whatsoever.

97hcubes oMnzh9xmo oPjq7w5te o

I wonder which of these three is the leader here.

Oxm8ceei oW-Who are you?!

Azmq8jmu oYou're pretty late, Lane. Two whole days?

Rnwsddzf oMy apologies, Gomez. This egg took much longer to crack than I'd expected. You can deduct those two days from the price, of course.

Oxm8ceei oBaron... Lane...?

Rnwsddzf oDear Cecily, these gentlemen will be escorting you to your new life. You'll be with them from now on.

Lgjkwhcy o Ahhh, goddamnit... The thing that everybody expected to happen has come to pass. Who could've possibly foreseen this?

Oxm8ceei oWhat...? But then... Did you... lie to me? Baron...?

Rnwsddzf oCecily, Cecily, Cecily... Let me give you a piece of wisdom:

O9orq4te o

Rnwsddzf o...And my friends here are in the business of turning lovely ladies like you into money for me.

Lgjkwhcy o...Well, as it turns out, we were wrong all along: Lane isn't a serial rapist. He doesn't really care for the merchandise, just the dough. That... is not better. He's still going to get shanked if Kaga lets me.

Oxm8ceei oYou can't mean that... We were destined for each other...! I helped you... I even took the money from the store, just like you said to...

Rnwsddzf oYes, that was rather foolish of you, wasn't it? Really quite astonishing.

Osyrmdvf o

Rnwsddzf oYou can take it from here, Gomez.

Azmq8jmu oGot it. Nice work, as usual.

Lfewabca o

Yeah, that's right. You walk away. We shall see whose time is running short...!

C1opjprv o

Azmq8jmu oBoys, let's get her dolled up and ready for auction before the day is out.

Qnz9doyr oGot it!

Oxm8ceei o...Father...

97yeutfh o

Let us begin!

No Owen again, because he moves one hex per turn and that's awful. I... I hope I won't regret it. Again. 'Sides, in this case I absolutely need everyone that's been deployed.

Tqpbk91t o

So you know how Kaga made a Good Desert Map? Well... here's a painful snow map to compensate. In this map, everyone gets movement reductions. No exceptions. Funnily enough, cavaliers are the best for this map, because they can move as far as... four hexes. In the roads, of course. Everyone gets to move one hex at a time in the forest. Joy.

Wait... Did I say "no exceptions"? Ahh, sorry, that's not right. There are exceptions. Namely, Larentia, which is pretty cool, and... every single enemy on the map other than the boss. So yeah. That's fun.

4t3n4hed o

Because Kaga is a cheeky man, Marcel gets a huge head start on everyone else. This might seem good, until you realize that he's stuck in the middle of the entire enemy army.

Wxdicmpu o

...And also that he can only move one hex per turn. There's that, too. I think if you get him to level 15 prior to this mission he might be able to move two? But that's too difficult.

7d3jdqhs oDud4ulxi o

Gomez will attempt to reach this village I'm highlighting. It's not game over if he makes it, but we do lose the chance to kill him, and since he's a bounty target and also a despicable slave trader, we don't want that.

Hbzomtcb o9vak6p5g o

Gomez has mediocre stats and no skills other than Blade, but he has a veritable bucket of HP, and with the terrain impeding our movement, the only ones with a real shot at him are Larentia and Marcel. It's doable, but it may require some luck on our part.

Ykai4djp o

Oxm8ceei o...How did this happen...?

Lgjkwhcy o Well, you failed to see the blatant red flags. But this isn't your fault, don't beat yourself up over it. That's what the slavers are there for. Which is why I'm going to kill them all. What I'm trying to say is, please hang in there, we're coming to the rescue!

T7cch741 o

Suddenly, Serkis! He'll explain the sidequest's sidequest!

Peomilfr o...You'll just fight back? Hey, it's your life, not mine... Still, if you do take it down, its scales would be real useful protection. There was a man who used to make 'em into shields in the olden days. I think the man's great-great-grandson or somethin' lives in the village west of here.

Lgjkwhcy o So yeah. Later on, a wyvern will appear. It'll be aggressive against both factions, but we'll want to take it down sooner than later. Once we have, we bring the item it drops to the third village on the map, the one to the left of Marcel.

8xc2nsry o

Beyond that, there's not much. Kill Gomez, then seize the village that he's heading towards. We lose if Marcel dies, which isn't good, considering his current position.

Sfdiwo5t o

First things first, let's not allow the enemies to keep him from advancing. His own terrible movement does a good enough job of it already. Thus, he moves first.

Keyo0wk1 o8m0c49t9 o

Oh yeah, as if stranding Marcel all the way overthere wasn't bad enough, he's surrounded by assholes with magical axes.

Frzgtjyg oWzgqycps o

Neat palettes, though.

4xe1hu41 o

Hah! For all the good it did 'em. The axe, not the palette.

Xsl2hpuu oWdhxktd8 o

Come now. You fools could never hope to touch this. This, uh... guy who calls a kidnapping victim "loose woman."

Zkkbd109 oC8kjmvjt o

Son of a bitch, really...?

Qutyqgpb o

Hoo, boy... Is there any chance I could down him with Larentia?

H25kefb0 o

Of course. Of course! Fuckin' Kaga knew what he was doing... And yeah, I know she can use swords, but she's so bad with them that it might as well not even be an option.

Yzvutp79 o

Ruby advances. She'll try to lure some heat away from Marcel.

Also, for some reason, this archer guy moved but didn't attack. Pretty sure he could make it to Marcel, so... eh. Not gonna complain.

Qrx8hs1i oSnteybey o

Thankfully, the remaining enemies are carrying battle saws. Accuracy is nice, but not when the might is so low that Marcel can tank the hits entirely.

Cbg3hcgz o

There we go. Naturally, the rapist assholes couldn't resist the sight of Ruby.

Sur0aaqs o

I don't think so. Anyway, Ruby's new palette. She's kept her green cape, but switched her red shirt for a golden one. Which is funny, because in her map sprite, she's wearing red armor.

A9cymkpl oNqa5zitk o

Ah, well. Berwick's color inconsistencies, as always, do not detract from its beautiful animations that, sadly, I cannot fully show every time. Gifs are a little cumbersome to make.

80jzjc4p oRvmdfwsl oUcrwdbzf o

That's my Marcel, saving uses of the shield. Next turn he'll begin downing enemies.

Saz5mpav o

Larentia flies next to Ruby and picks up the verutum (Verutums? Verutem? Verutae?). Not sure why I gave those to Ruby. Ruby already has the Angon.

Rcqpndnd oXsjzhmmx oOwyfqn7p o

Some nice softening up, completely risk-free.

80sd2nfi o

This move has revealed three facts. First, Gomez can't speed through the map while carrying Cecily. Thank goodness. Second, Marcel is completely surrounded, which is hilarious.

Ock6ho9g o

Third, this guy was hiding in the woods. Thankfully, he's pretty pathetic. Thieves without crit chance basically never amount to anything.

Etjhdgmx o

Well, he could avoid harm if he hits her. That's something, no?

F8ztryxf o

You? Don't make me laugh.

19zkno1o o

Too late, you made me laugh! Hahahahahahah!

Pkuxuum9 o

Eh. That could be worse.

Opt9p7nv o

Oh dear. Look who's made its grand entrance. It's the wyvern! Icewyrm, to be precise, which means it's strong against wind but weak against fire.

Dnyaiicl o

I hope this doesn't mean they'll move faster...

Iy7m84hr o

We've already seen what promoted Ruby can do. Time to check out Arturo!

9knzvj5h o

Uacy7kn3 oXh14n6ej o

Oh, he's the spiritual successor to Clifford and his sword uppercuts!

Yes, that would've been a great idea.

6omuvdgd oTeotddff o

All of Marcel's hard work, undone... Such a shame.

8btnqjhb o

Ah! Yes! Attack the enemy!

Bncibb3o o

...What?

Well, here's the thing. The wyvern is passive at first, and heads towards the mountains. Once it gets there, it immediately leaves again, and then it's aggressive. Why? I haven't the faintest idea.

Vjmontp5 oOmj5z2sr o

The death edit does not match up with the cause of death. But it would've been difficult to draw a spear through the neck. So let's say she just grazed him. Grazed him real hard.

Zpau3mvf oQ0grf2f7 o

Eyyy, almost at a level! That's cool.

Misvdlm6 oWponn9yw oVupdo88z oS8h1chqk o

If this succeeds, perhaps Marcel could keep moving forward.

8gguz7vj oFskrovmc o

Oh, fuck's sake, it's this guy! Noooo...

H2ipvdey o

Another guy heals.

Gnvux9kp oRzzm0x5f o

Whoa... Marcel's doing an exemplary job today. I was expecting him to have far more trouble against all these enemies, but he's handling them like a champ.

Gyb0a8mc oMrdnkdcp o

That's the end of that. I'm hoping for him level up today, once at the very least.

H562cdem o

This is what I was hoping for. With that enemy out of the way, Marcel is free to--

I7fkmisc o

...You... You...! He can't move through forests! All right, then!

S6dc1chs o

Guess he'll just kill this asshole.

Frfylfbe oUosylt9z o

Gwaaaahhh....

E0fsqfco o

At least there's that, I guess...

Zjidena8 o

Gomez creeps ever closer to the place...

Qapq4gh4 o

...And we aren't any closer to intercepting him.

E1m7z1rb o

That's it, these people have got to die now. Larentia, help Marcel out!

Kdtzjlsn o

Good.

J4tgmsjo o

G A H !

Gsr17wnq o

A miss would be nice.

Otf8pmfu oDdkyf7vg o

Very, very good. A shame he's not using a bastard sword anymore, so his damage output could be better.

Uwifssxd o

There goes the dragon. You may've noticed Elbert, Sylvis and Enid are heading up. Can you see where this is going?

Rw4a2qpc oOclxqqhh o

Well, for now, it's going to Ruby getting hit by an axe. Because what's an Axebane?

Ln85qv70 o

...Ehhhh it's fine. She has to get M Shield skill at some point. Better here than in a more pressing situation.

33mcrrpv o

Yey, movement. I think he may be in range of Gomez now? If Gomez came after Marcel, it'd be great.

D5cmfeor o

To that end, Marcel equips the good sword and shield. I don't want him to be downed by a crit. Not easily.

Tm6xiiu4 o

He attacks this fellow on his way up.

U6gunjdv oW3hccbc2 o

Oh, well... was bound to happen at some point, I suppose.

Brvuuzy9 o

Get him!

Huq848ms oFcbaqym1 o

You!

D3caokb2 o

Ahh, that's better.

Mjdgxk0c oIo58oijk o

That is the funniest spear swing I've seen. She just grabs it like a hammer and thwacks the enemy on the head with the tip. Amazing. I don't think that's how you're supposed to use that, but... amazing.

Kb4lzzz4 o

Eeeeyyyy that's great too!

It83g2i4 o

...Damnit, stupid snow!

5m3zgcjw oRrft69kw oGzyqdkoy oEu41nxnp o

These battle saw guys are my favorites.

B0l6knxe o

Another kill for Arturo.

4eceolaq o4odc0njr o2y5rirpx o

Not too shabby, my man!

Nferzjzu o

Ahhh, that's great! Gomez went after Marcel!

Ymleddlg o

Now I just need him not to crit...

Yqgx36ez o

Are you fucking kidding me? This is going to be hard enough without going for a capture!

B1tva2fd o9psmwoh1 o

Very good. Thank you.

B0lzc4q0 oGgv5avzy o

Great! Yes, great!

Cxycn7x2 o

Even more points? Goodness... I don't know what the cap for these stats is, but Marcel may very well ram it at this rate!

Qindww6h o

Hmmm... Gomez can't make it to the village this turn... on the other hand, Marcel can't make it past those two enemies...

Jy55sxlp o

Well, whatever. Let's set up the other boss kill I'm hoping to get.

29epr1gl o4qpmutvb o

Assuming I can provoke him next turn, it'll either attack Elbert (being unable to kill him) or get caught by Sylvis's Overwatch. Either result is good, as they'll both place the dragon within reach of Enid.

M9dk8eho oYswqzo8t oPg2lxpyg o

More of this.

Qwllmv1p o

Ahhhh, what a shame... Wyvern's still not aggressive. I can only provoke this guy.

Ohgonrqq o

Well, might as well get him out of Marcel's hair.

Zlagxehg oNice place you got here! You probably need this cold, otherwise your brains might overheat when you try to think.

Qnz9doyr oGrrrr... C'mere! Imma warm you up with me axe!

Lf7w31oz o

This... may've been a mistake, all things considered... Ah, well, we'll see.

Ldhimzh2 oFmhdpncd o

Heal up, Marcel. Don't want to take too many unnecessary risks.

B4da3vbd oIdmnbsl0 o

Another enemy falls to Larentia.

Diqtxxes o

Good?

Pzfrhjn8 o

Eh. Could be worse, could be speed.

Bywgvf4p oNunpmtda o

Oh, please... Marcel, keep up the luck! Don't start faltering now!

Y6fflrci o

Gaahhh...

5shst90s o

Okay, no problem, we can still do this.

4biufypy oZpxd8git o

...uh, can we...?

Nkfsyqtf o

No. No we can't.

A2fucb60 o

Anyway, reinforcements! A single axeman. Meh.

Kunnqlmi o

Soooo here's the thing. Larentia can't easily block the village, because she can't stop on it with her wyvern. She can do it if she dismounts, but then she'll be in grievous danger from way too many enemies. To say nothing about the 3% chance of instant death. Not worth it.

My only shot is to keep using up my moves and hope the thief moves before Gomez. Then we'll have one shot to kill this guy with Marcel and Larentia. Fingers crossed!

0drq1h20 o

First move, however, has to be to protect Elbert with an Overwatch.

8lp5issv o

Well, that wasn't what I intended to happen, but it's fine I guess?

Xpfpmmwn oPnqkzhem o

At least she didn't miss. Hurray.

Xpglhlcx o

And in the end none of this even mattered, because the wyvern went after... the boss? Please! The boss! Kill that bastard! Pretty sure we get the bounty even if he dies to the wyvern...

B1va4pcp o

Son of a-- Okay, then at least kill this arsehole so Marcel can get through.

I0068efw o

...You can't be serious... The frightening wyvern, everyone!

Svseehsp o

Forward, Elbert! After it! I can't let it have free rein to do as it pleases!

R8mvcd3u oWphbyhgr o

Guess we'll just have to resume our prior plan to pray the thief gets out of the way before Gomez moves... To that end, Arturo kills another guy with Desperation.

Evvqewzz o684e2vz1 o

Another one that's almost at a level? Please...

Gowy9mnn oS7i1cqwb o

Okay, then... has he moved where I want him to?

Bsagiplh o

...Well, I forgot to screenshot it, but yes, he has. Marcel can reach Gomez. Now we just need a lil' bit o' luck.

N6trnkzv oHkcobzrb o

C'mon. Don't fail me, you two.

Ld2nugrp o

Nice! Thanks, girl. Now...

V4kgv01c o

Oh hey, this one finally decided to get his ass moving and do something.

Spkgodog oMq3kakgy o

Clap clap clap.

Ndnfurei o

And now...

...Oh, you son of a fuck-- He's just one point short of killing him with the longsword! Really!?

Y1z56fi2 o

Okay then. This is our hitrate. Bleeeehh...

Jtuquatz o

C'mon... c'mon... You can do it, Marcel... c'mon, c'mon, c--

0svdbuxl o

COCKSUCKING COCK! MARCEL!

Qdcs3qkq o

No way I can hope for a double, right?

Tzocfgl7 o

Yes! Yes! Kaga actually lets me murder the slave trader this time around, and I go and fail miserably! Aren't I just amazing!? Fuck yeah, Ruben! Ruben! Say my name, Ruben! Hurray, give 'em a medal! A medal made of solidified shit! Aaaaaaaarrgghh!

Azmq8jmu oWe ran into some trouble. Here's the girl.

Oxm8ceei o......

Vnb1whik oHey...! Not bad, not bad at all...

Uedfz3v4 o ......

Vnb1whik oGuess she was worth the wait. Here, there's your money.

Azmq8jmu oThanks. See you.

Vnb1whik o...That's it? You're not gonna stick around for a drink?

Azmq8jmu oNah, I've got a little bounty hunter problem to take care of.

Lgjkwhcy o Does this mean you're going to come and kill us? Please come and kill us. I'm begging you, put yourself within reach of my units.

Lmzveeoj o

Uedfz3v4 oNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HE'S SMAAAAAAAAAAART! DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMNIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!!

Bxmyaxqk o

Uedfz3v4 oHe got away. I hate myself.

Vnb1whik oRun if you want. I won't stop you. It's nothing but snow and ice for miles around.

Lgjkwhcy oOne: Are you sure you should be letting her kill herself when you just paid money for her? And two: there are two other villages in the area. If you just let her run, she stands a pretty good chance. Maybe that's how she pulls it off if the sidequest is declined...

Vnb1whik oThere ain't a soul in these parts who'd save a whelp like you.

9qk5ifz8 o Dude, that's not true. I'm sure my man Serkis would do it. He's a good guy, I'm sure.

Oxm8ceei o......

Hdqnszcw o

Well, the trader may've gotten away, but we can at least kill the auctioneer. He's a regular rogue with a pitchfork. Nothing remarkable to him. Not even worth showing his statsheet.

En55qiog o

New objective is to just seize the village.

E429qetj o

I swear, Ruby, if you get hit here...

1jtsa2gr o0dvcmeen oTduhfbeg o

Good.

Lxc1axbm o

Okay, new turn time.

Vv3kbmul o

Ahh, about time! Elbert, please provoke the wyvern.

Zlagxehg oWhat!? You want me to... wave at the wyvern?

9qk5ifz8 o Yes. What could possibly go wrong?

Zlagxehg o...I swear, tactician, if this goes wrong--

9qk5ifz8 oI've got everything planned. You don't worry about a thing.

Zlagxehg o...Nngh...!

Bzdrjsa8 o

Sftlhzud oGRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWRRRR!

Zlagxehg oOh...! I think I may've bitten more than I can chew this time...

Elbia9ks oJebwd16i o

The deed is done. For the rest, we just have to survive.

Lyvkt1cj o

Here it comes...

I9maxnx6 o

Jesus Christ... okay, but no crit means this is completely fine.

33xkwscn o
 
Kv0oj60t oYp90osal o

Uhhh, cool effect! In fact, too cool to remain a mere still image.

Aj76gfui o

Here's a gif I just recorded. Alongside the terrible realization that the Icewyrm's breath has a chance to inflict sleep for no reason. It's probably stated in the weapon's description, which I didn't check because I'm an idiot. I'm... glad we sidestepped that in the actual run. I didn't even know this was a thing...

Yo1wl9hb o

Ohhhhh, fuck off! It had enough movement left to canto out of Enid's range...

U3s82grd o

Damnit, I want that scale!

While we're here, can we talk about wyvern-related items? There's the wyvern scale, an Erzheimer item that has no other practical use. Then there's this ice scale, which is a particular type of wyvern scale, but not quite the same kind, that is only good to craft a shield in this same map. Then there's the wyvern pearl, a material used to craft fortify.

It's a little confusing, when you're trying to figure out if the next wyvern item you're gonna get is going to give you money, a shield or an orb. Just a thought. Anyway, let's carry on.

Oy1wkjcp oKjsdb1ew o

About time I remembered to have Marcel equip a regular shield again. No more need for the overkill defense.

Pegwxsqh o

One shot!

A5kxhlyq o

Yeeeeaaaahh one shot!

Xj75uaf9 o

Arturo level? Hype, hype, hype!

Pacehnam o

For fuck's sake, Arturo... You're a paladin now! Act like one!

Ue3o5ib7 o

Coin.

Agpiw9ru o

What are you even doing anymore? You're mostly alone! Admit defeat. You have failed.

...No, wait, I am the one who's failed. The leader got away. Urrgghh...

Vjlmcpl8 o

You know what? Better this than wasting shield uses.

Yld1ofjr o

We down this guy, and it's just the archer, the slaver and the wyvern left. And I still have a pretty good plan for the wyvern.

Z5atmslx oE1lqp5ng o

C'mon, let's have some stats!

Hiw6xwjf o

Ohhh, that's just... totally fubar!

Pp4mydmf o

Coin 2: Financial Boogaloo.

Pevo5wgs o

Oh? You fool... Is this really a contest you wish to attempt? First you want to throw away your purchase, now you want to throw away your life... What's wrong? Guilt getting too hard to bear?

Fjlvpejb o

Hah! That's an interesting word. I wonder if he'll drop an F bomb when he dies. Let's find out, shall we?

Ygf34fsn oDfobltsg o7xbyqane oM2xpqngv o

Marcel, please...

Wtpyvksn o

More! More skill, more! Give me more!

J3uwogyg oCcz8bcor o

Buckle up. It's time for you to go.

N73nyx6m oO9ngsebg o

Sigh... Axebane...

Fg9mbnlz o

Okay, turn is done. Another random fighter... well, no matter. Elbert can now die to the wyvern. I must heal him. That is the correct move at this point in time. To have him use his vulnerary.

Ay8ouume o

...Or, I can have Sylvis use the Rossweisse to set up another Overwatch, because at this point I was completely tunnel-visioned by my desire to stop that wyvern within Enid's reach.

Ahhh, well. It'll be fine. The wyvern will be stopped in its tracks, and then Enid can just erase it before it can finish Elbert off.

3xtc6upm oNpbonjgc o

I don't want to kill this guy just yet, because I've only just now realized that Marcel has barely gotten any kills, and-- damnit, I want him to level up today. So, might as well keep this guy around. Not like he's, y'know, a threat, or anything.

Skewxpam o

Ahah! Fallen right into my trap!

Nhzswfp4 oBxjv9nr8 o

Heheheheheh... ahah--!

6umvqhpg o

......

...You know, maybe I really should consider LPing golf games. What do you guys think? Would you read that?

Acuvqrl0 o

Ahem.

ELBERT! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

1le0yjq6 o
 
Cpelmswk o

Excellent! Great! Marvelous! Fuckin' A! There goes the second Provoke user! I can already think of at least one map that's going to be Hell on Earth, because the only unit that can provoke things now is Thaddy! What a goddamned joke!

And again, it's entirely because of my dumb mistakes! Over half a decade of playing FE, and I still can't come up with such basic tactics as "probably should heal the guy in danger of death", "probably should move the guy in range of sleep" and "probably shouldn't do Ironmans when I lack the skill for it"!

Urgh.

At least he's with Christine now. Fuck me sideways... That's another face to haunt Ward in his nightmares.

84i4ajki o

And, of course, what do you know, it's moved away. Again.

You know, this whole plan seemed a lot more foolproof in my head. But I guess I am a fool, so...

Ihcluti4 oHvh55bnl o

Look, let's just... Can we accomplish one goal today, please? Preferably without losing anyone else, thanks.

6hrbvm21 o6szhk5o7 o

Whoop-de-fuckin'-do.

Yey6x0j7 oPhzeiu3h oWcqyrobd o

Ah, yes, please. Tell me more.

Okbv5lxz oNpix2uzf o

That'll be another kill for Marcel, next turn.

Xob3had2 oTwmjkdet o

Most definitely.

Xtr6nnxz o

Okay, so here's the deal. I cannot provoke this asshole any longer. Its damage is magical, so Marcel's bulk won't make a difference. In fact, it's less likely to go after Enid! What I'm saying is, if this thing goes north, Elbert's death will officially have been for nothing. Because there's no way I can kill it then. Heck, we'd stand a pretty good chance to lose more people then. We still have to kill the slaver and seize.

Cjugwsty o

Blistering barnacles, I'll kill that fucker if it's the last thing my army does.

Eyhygeuu o

No! No! Reckless bastard, you're supposed to be killed by Marcel!

X6jki2ze o

Nice. Thank you. Of course, the one time I don't want you to be competent, Arturo, you--

X5f2da8j o

Oh.

...Thanks, Art. Appreciate it.

Ubpymrcg o

You know what I said earlier? About it being less likely for the wyvern to target Enid because she has more resistance than the rest? Yeah... turns out, I was wrong there, too.

...Then again, it does have that nasty sleep chance that I didn't know about. If it puts her to sleep, not only will it be impossible to down the wyvern, we'll also stand a fair chance to lose Enid as well, since, again, we have to kill the slaver before we can seize.

Fowdtixp o

So yeah. Probably should've thought things through before I tried this again immediately after it failed horribly.

Gcea146x o9jl6dum6 o

How nice. One turn too late, but how nice.

8habrbf9 o

I am going to enjoy this.

Idzlxyox o

 

Owzxxscs oXkqudbfj o

 

U6sy7n6p o

Elbert is still dead...

Zrrmlgur o

My, 100 experience! Let it be a good one. Magic, defense maybe, fire skill--

Ndsk9xz7 o

...hah... hahah... aaaaaaaaahhhhh, KagaSaga mages. You never fail to piss me off. Theodel, where are you when you're needed...

Fjwjppl1 o

Hurrah. We've gotten this, and it only cost us Elbert's life.

Interestingly enough, units that can equip accessories can use this thing. But not only is wind resistance completely useless for 99.99% of the game, this also grants a flat -12 crit resistance. Which means everyone gets at least 12 crit on you at all times. Yeah... fuck this thing.

5wwuqvpn o

Now Enid needs to leg it to this village so she can have that scale turned into a shield.

Ozzglkuy o18c0rqmv o

But first-- D'ooohhh...

Q5yyaxss oKarafzg1 o

He lost his sword. Wonderful. At least he got even more skill points... Can we make that 40 in this map? That'd be beautiful.

Mskbrhxi o

Huh?

Mcr19bav o

Ooohhh, this one has a throwing axe! I didn't even notice!

Giurlhni o

Okay, attempt number 2. Go!

Zsrex4na oX2f0lb3z o

Thank you. I think with that second axeman and the slaver, he'll be able to level up.

Wpoidpjs o

Good thing, too, because they're the last enemies on the map.

Metx52ap oQmf1spxq o30ynfx04 o

The cattle brings itself to the slaughter! How kind of it.

Fhqksj3w oEpdvftqr o

That's it.

Zwgeg5gu o

Rest In Pepperoni, longsword.

Gqt1oyn3 oItlm13ju o

It matters not. Three more levels for movement. That's all I care about.

Sdv5isea o

Coin 3: The Coining.

Ibfgv6pb o

Now, how about we end this fellow's sorry life?

Kidwjliy o3jamk9za o

I mean, who cares? He isn't going to kill anybody, and we need to kill some time till Enid gets to the village, anyway.

Dtstu6pi o

There.

Hxu2xooj o

That he did, and successfully, too. Bah...

Ooekj5sn o

Okay, let's have this.

Juljcbzi o

Oh hai, Carmal. I would question the wisdom of reusing the face of one of the shopkeeps in Navaron, but... I mean, what do I know? I'm the guy who is too stupid not to lose Elbert to a single enemy.

Y1y65ybu oI can hardly believe it... You want me to make a shield? Of course I'll do it! My family's technique has been passed down for generations, but I've never had the chance to put it to use...

3tdlz3ni o

Y1y65ybu oFinished! Here it is... a Wyrmskin Shield!

Db8qgkmc o

He just made a masterpiece shield and gave it to us for free! What a kind man.

R6b5ygnx o

What a shield, too. 14 defense, A durability... the 40% chance is a little iffy, but other than that, this shield is great.

9u8psgvz o

Not much else to do in this place. Let's go.

...Fuck me... I can scarcely believe it, but that was... almost as bad as last time. Couldn't even get Marcel to 40 L Shield skill! I didn't even get that tiny satisfaction! Good lord... I never thought I'd say this, but I am so looking forward to leaving this accursed chapter behind. Even if the next main mission is going to be excruciating and I'm probably going to lose someone there, too. At least then it'll feel half-right for me to lose units. This is downright shameful.

Sigh... So, yeah. Next time, we do things, and hopefully noone will keel over and die because I'm the worst tactician ever. Please fare better than units under my command.

Gah.

True. How could I forget such a crucial detail?

You knew it was coming in fairness.

I'd say you could be doing worse.

I guess it's true that I could be doing "worse". I could have no units, for example.

Also, what is Ward doing not using lances?

Ward can use spears, not lances. Don't forget that they're two different things in this game. Spear = FE lance. Lance = jousting charge thing that I can no longer use because fuck me.

(Shush, this was the first thing I could find that looked like two people on screen possibly pointing at each other that wasn't the Office.)

That fits, to be honest.

Arran's next then. No way is he safe now.

Well, we'll see, won't we?

Unrelated, of course Albertus and Margaret died. In good old slasher tradition, the people having sex died first!

Well, actually, the first to die was the killer. So, uh... that usually happens in slashers, too?

Unless you want to count Morgan. But then again, we didn't see Morgan die onscreen, did we?

That makes me realize, right now Ruebhen is the most successful of my fanfic villains. Two kills so far. Last LP's guy got two too, but they were undone. Pretzel only got Morgan. Humphrey got diddly-squat. The powercreep is real.

JUST BUILD THAT FUCKING BRIDGE.

At this rate you'll be under one hoping to ambush them.

I think it's a bit late for that. He's just gonna run up to them and blast 'em.

I want to make an edit with this.

Please do, but take care to avoid giving people yellow faces.

The future is not yet written, but I think we're not looking so good as it stands, because we're idiots. I'm almost expecting a surge at some stage. Pessemistic? Yes/

Damn...

I'm also also just kinda rambling because I've no idea what I'm saying with this. Besides admitting that my racist Jugudi lines are now useless.

Ahah... That is the real tragedy here. Whatever will you joke about in the future? Your "racist Jugudi" lines have been proven wrong, Clifford, Albertus and Margaret are all dead... who will you bully now?

Also, TIL the 3H special edition in Europe has the soundtrack on a usb key which was in the keychain. That's neat, I left it on writing this.

How cute. That means you don't have to google the stuff.

Also, I want to confirm if I can use it to store stuff, because if I can I will.

I don't see why not. Check its contents out first, just in case, but by all probability it's just a regular USB stick with sound files in it.

I'm... not sure Kramer should be enabled like this.

It gets him to join. I'm good.

Plus, who knows how he's gonna desecrate this priceless relic when he thinks he is alone.

Dude, it's a literal weapon. I think it can take care of itself. I'd be more worried for Kramer's gonads, frankly.

Man, Kramer really drew the short straw when it comes to the characters with paralogues.

Ruby: Goes to save a village from bandits all by herself, so as to protect her father's honor as a knight.

Faye: Faces off against one of the main villains in a sacred site built by the Razites in a swamp poisonous bog. Fails miserably, but hey. The intention is what counts.

Sylvis: Accomplishes her greatest goal while simultaneously realizing that she's not a very good person.

Kramer: Erzheimer 2: Erotic Boogaloo.

Yeah, I'm gonna have to agree with you there.

I don't think it's too impressive of a weapon. Basically just a Bastard Sword with +20% accuracy. And at this point in this game, my impression is that the damage output of a Bastard Sword is no longer anything to write home amount. So I don't think it really gives him that extra oomph that he needs to stand out in the late game.

At this point in the game? Bastard sword still mostly two-shots the cannon fodder. I think it's a decent weapon. Its crucial downside is its poor accuracy, and like you said, the Balmung doesn't have that.

They are just throwing poor Kramer into a big ceremony without any warning.
Well, Reese did do the same thing with Marcel, so he is most certainly consistent.

He's such a prankster, that guy. Who woulda imagined.

Interesting use of the kneeling animation. You can't say the game doesn't get it's money's worth out of them.

Would've been cool if Erzheimer himself also knelt. As it is, he doesn't seem all to fazed by the blow.

He's no doubt been suppressing the urge to do this since they first meet. So good for him.

They're clearly the greatest of friends.

Who knows? He might seem fine right now. But for all we know, he might go on a killing spree in the near future.

...Ergh...

...Oh, blistering barnacles-- Can't I have ONE favorite character without either the game killing them or the readers bullying them!? Leave Axel alone, damn you...! Do I constantly bully Hoelun for... Fuck I like Hoelun a lot uhh, for not having a proper promotion!? Maybe I should start!

Oh yeah. I'm this bigshot baron, but I'm really gonna need to borrow some greens from your dad's cash register.

Not that predators manipulating young girls in this manner is unheard of. But trying to pass yourself of as a goddamn baron might be putting it on a bit thick.

Yeah, to be honest, he could've put more thought into his ruse.

Man, I wish we could have cut to this conversation like 20 seconds earlier. Because I would have really liked to hear why she thinks it's a good idea to send a 3 movement unit on a chase mission through the snow.

In fairness, he does get a head start on the army. For... some reason.

You know, Marcel: I didn't expect that Mr. "I will defend the townspeople with my live even if it gets me executed for not following orders" would be such a whiny baby about pursuing a predator who may also be a slaver just because you happen not to care about his current victim. I guess first impressions can be deceiving.

That's true. This is rather inconsistent with how his character is first established.
 
...Unless he's just really, really shy, and would rather let Cecily get sold off as a slave than confront her and her feelings. That's... not really better, is it...

Girl is running two shops at the same time like a boss.

Maybe she dug a secret hole from her bedroom to Cecily's, and that's how she can get from one place to the other so fast.

Unfortunately for Teresa, Cecily is only into dumbass knights and """"""""""""""""""""""""""""barons""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""", so her plans were foiled.

...Dang it, I went there! And here I wanted to preserve their wholesome friendship months ago...

Not that I want the game to make it impossible to buy shields right now. Would likely be really bad news for Marcel.
Too bad this seems to be the only time the game has someone else fill in as a shopkeeper while they are gone.

Heh... Yeah, I do seem to recall that it is.

True enough.

Yeah, I noticed. Thought about sassing you for it, but there were more important things to say.

True.

Never forget that creepers were a glitch in one of Minecraft's earliest versions. Fast forward a few years, and they became the icon of one of the most important games in the recent history of the industry. Go figure.

Hah! Hey, I've actually heard of this group!

accurate

Meanwhile here's me. I swear, half the games I've played in my life, I've discovered through major spoilers. This encouraged me to try and find the context for those spoilers.

Maybe this is why I can't be bothered with shows and movies most of the time. Unlike games, there's not much else to be gotten out of those than the story, and if I get the story spoiled first and foremost, well...

O RLY?

I should've known it'd be an existing community joke... it is too easy!

Ever heard of "Plants vs. Zombies"?

Yes, but I've never played it, so yeah.

I was referring to the one above: i quoted the first one too to show their respective placement in my previous comment if i could have edited it.

Ah, right.

I only needed one minute though, and it usually takes at least half an hour before they become uneditable.

I found it somehow, I don't remember how but I did.

Isn't that how it happened for everyone? I've never advertised my stuff anywhere. Unless you count the links in my signature as advertisement. Then I guess I advertise my LPs everywhere I go.

Yeah.

Yup.

I mean, it's still fun, I'm not that good and yet holy hell do I love Lunatic Reverse of Souls of the Forest, it's easier I would say. Do tell me once you pick it up, and play it on Lunatic if you wish, it's still hard.

All right, I will keep this in mind. But I've got a bit of a backlog right now, so it'll take a while.

Talking about being good at FE, I played FE7 today trying to go ranked and if it weren't for Boies dodging too many Marcus 80%s, I would have gotten a 5 star ranking on tactics, but everything else was 5 so hoorray! I think one day I'll try an ironman of FE7... ranked... so like no deaths ever, that doesn't go well together... wait did I mention this already?

Maybe you did. Either way, good luck with your endeavors!

Ah yeah, despite me grabbing the same color box it fucks up so I stopped caring. You get the idea of what they are, I hope.

Yeah, sure.

I should eat Paella someday, I asked my grandpa if he had tried it and he said it was good, might try some day, I mean I should.

It's a great dish, actually! I recommend it. Though I'll admit, I'm more fond of the rice than anything else. But it's some damn good rice.

Only a little bit orange... ok pull up the portrait please. I will finish this once and for all.

Let us, then.

Hey you wrote a fanfic for me! Kewl.

You provided a good opportunity.

Ok it;s a 30% growth, but is it also a 30% growth for when you have him whack things and stuff? What are the calculations for skill points in battle?

Quote

For each time a unit attempts a hit with a weapon, uses a non-attacking orb, or is hit by an enemy attack, the game rolls several times for EExp gain. For weapons that multiply number of hits, this does not multiply the chances of gaining EExp, but weapons that add additional hits do add additional chances at EExp.

The chance of gaining EExp is calculated as follows:

Value Calculation
EExp Growth Rate (usage) (Equipment Skill Growth Rate) x (Usage Correction Factor)
Correction Factor (usage) minimum[1, 1.9 - (0.003 x Weapon Experience)]

The exact conditions for each roll depend on the current turn number and the unit's Equipment Skill:

Equipment Skill Turn Limit Weapon Condition / Orb Condition / Shield Condition
Equipment Skill < 10 Turns ≤ 24 hit attempted / orb used / unit is hit
Turns ≤ 24 hit attempted / orb used / unit is hit
none hit successful / orb successful / shield successful
10 ≤ Equipment Skill < 20 Turns ≤ 24 hit attempted / orb used / unit is hit
none hit successful / orb successful / shield successful
Equipment Skill ≥ 20 Turns ≤ 24 hit successful / orb successful / shield successful
none hit successful / orb successful / shield successful

For each successful roll, the unit will gain EExp:

Equipment Type Equipment Experience Gain
Weapon +1
Shield +2
Non-Attack Magic +4

In other words, the growth for skill points in battle is... less.

(unbolded is me as you may have already reasoned) So I had said it... I found good strategies today at school, hey this will be the perfect moment for you, someone who doesn't wanna play FE7, to see it again! 

At school? What? How would you find FE strategies at school? Don't tell me there's people in your school who... actually play FE!

And I'm already seeing FE7 again in Benice's LP. Not that I'd be opposed to another LP, mind. Might be good to have someone who wouldn't entirely validate my extremely negative view of FE7, like Benice does.

Ah... AH! Did other people say this too? Whoops!

I think so, yes.

All the references! Tell me!

It's a reference to Portal 2. And I won't go any further because it'd be some pretty huge spoilers, and that game doesn't deserve to be spoiled. Go play it, and you'll see.

You are now obligated to make a photoshop edit where Kramer is in a hentai cutscene with a sword.

Uh... Okay?

Now that I said it again, why do you dislike the word hentai so much?

I... I dislike it? When have I said that? I don't really mind hentai's existence all that much, to be honest. I think it's fine. What I don't like is when otherwise serious anime stories get those dumb "funny" moments that are basically just "haha wahmen funny because boobs, watch guy unintentionally touch/see boobs, isn't it amazing?" Out of the animes I've seen (which aren't many to be fair), only one does not suffer from this. Which is, incidentally, also the best of the bunch, for me. So there's that.

I know it's kind of a big thing in Japan, but personally, I think there are ways to introduce comic relief and levity without oversized breasts flopping about the place, thank you very much. I'm not saying that all of anime comedy relies on this nonsense, but there's definitely enough to make me facepalm more than I'd like.

That, and the fanservice. God, the fanservice in anime. It's absolutely unbearable sometimes. Guys are allowed to wear proper attires, so why the hell must 80% of anime women have clothing five sizes too small for them? Jesus, take a page out of Thracia's book and let the women wear pants and shirts, goddamnit!

While we're talking about this, here's a little story: There was this anime called No Game No Life (Great Truth, as I called it at first) that my friend recommended to me. I kinda liked the concept, but between the shitty fanservice, the "funneh" moments, the very... let's say questionable treatment of one particular female character and the humongous asshole that was the main character... well, by episode 2 I was so thoroughly disgusted by the show that I quit, never to come back.

So yeah, that's been my experience with anime. I guess I'm too stuck-up to enjoy most of it. But what do I know. I watched Another when I was 12 and I thought it was fun. Not that I'd call that show high art, but at least the fanservice beach episode in that one wasn't just boobs for the sake of boobs. It had a pretty nice surprise at the end.

Kramer be quiet, go put the sword into your p**hole or something, but not yet I must examine your hair.

Uhhh...
.
.
.
Yes.... Yes. Yes! YES! YES!!! I have seen it! I can see it! His hair IS orange... well I still see a hint of yellow but maybe it's just a light orange... I've done it! I can see colors!

To be fair, the top of his hair is a lighter orange, but that's just the lightning. After all, every hair color out there looks black when in almost total darkness, right?

Incidentally, I feel like I'll have to start learning what I see and what it isn't, so whenever I see a color I see as, for example, red I should just say it's blue so as to not look like a fool... that is very difficult however. Because I can see yellow, green, orange perfectly fine (sometimes I have a harder time distinguishing them) so I fear I'll lie but actually be wrong still!

I can see how that'd be tricky.

... Fuck me, if we ever discover how to genetically alter children, I am taking away color-blindness from my child.

Probably for the best. Be careful you don't take the wrong thing away, though...

So uh... is there a difference to Blades and Swords other than Blades > Swords?

Blades are bigger, so usually, they have better might, but worse weight. And, well, only certain units can use them. Mostly units that are characterized as stronk bois. With the notable exception of Faye after promoting.

Absolutely, and for the age-old question, what the hell is up with Erzehiemr??

Diogenes syndrome. Among other things.

I'll be going there tomorrow, pick me up on the way.

Good, I'll be there. Shame about the pyrenees being a 9 hour car ride away from my home.

Reese: "What are hopes, dreams and worries? ... Wait women? What the fuck is a women? All I know is I suddenly talk shit to people with a bigger chest, and that they are lazy people that don't battle"

Lazy people that don't battle... Ahahahahahahahahaha! Meanwhile, Sylvis loads her bow in the background, while Tianna facepalms.

Alright then, once again the bar is long so fanfic time! I would check for number errors but I'm back in school and I don't wanna waste time cuz I've got some homework to do. So I'll just read it and quote as usual.

Back in school? So soon? I don't start for another two weeks!

Arran has a moustache... hmm yes I can see it if I change my point of view... still weird though.

Well, I'm not a great spriter. That's the best I could do.

 

That's weird, I quoted the to be continued part to say "WTF Ruebhen moment #796985" but I pushed the quote box somewhere up and I can't find it. If it's there well now you know.

It's nowhere, but with a title like that, I think I get what you were going to say.

Eeesh...

I hope he doesn't all but toss his life away like that.

Well... he did something to that effect. Thankfully, Ward was there to employ the age-old Eugen method to curing all ailments.

Orangutans Use Rainforest/Grassland Habitats.
Check it.

Makes sense. Let's go for it.

Now I feel sorry you killed him off. He could have been this wholesome guy who everyone just assumes is an edgelord because he looks like one.

I didn't kill him off, actually. He was just captured. Hmmmm...

Incidentally, that's a pretty good description for Vestaria Saga's Haldyn. He looked and acted like your average Navarre, to the point where I benched him pretty hard... but then it turned out he was just a dork who enjoys looking tough and cool and goes out of his way to help people even if it gets his ass handed to him.

Wysosdsu o

He said this gem, and I ended up training him like 8 chapters after he joined.

You've heard of the pottery pervert, now meet his cousin... the sword scoundrel.

I wonder what the conclusion to this riveting trilogy will be.

Clara should've. Her surname's Voiyant. Though, between us, I think she had it legally changed because it looked better on resumes.

Clearly Erin Voiyant doesn't look so great.

What about Ward, who apparently just performed the equivalent of an exorcism by using his beard?

Ward is the Endgame Beard. In his case, it goes without saying.

Goddamn it Marcel. I know Clifford had to be replaced and all, but that's not what was meant.

Sheesh... Fuck. Marcel, how could you! You were supposed to be the baby-faced knight with no personality! Why did you have to get... this personality, of all personalities!

Hello, I'm Saint Rubenio, and today we'll be playing Mario Golf.

Remind me to make that this LP's "Ruben fucks off to play a different game" gag. A worthy successor to Super Mario 64 DS, LEGO Star Wars and Indiana Jones. And TearRing Saga, if you want to count that.

Nah, I'm the one who got him killed in chapter 2.

But did you get Clifford killed too? Well, did you?

A timeless style.

Timeless is right.

It doesn't work on everybody, that's for sure.

I mean, my parents said I looked great with it. But I personally hated it. Then again, what do I know. I'm the least fashionable person.

Yiss!

Noh!

Indeed! Adel sure does make great work with a Lance + Vantage!

...Graaaahhh...

In all seriousness though, I wish Adel got Prepared when he promoted so he could actually Lance + Vantage.

That would've fixed one of Adel's many, many problems.

Oh wow, that's really good! It looks like it'd be worthwhile to Kramercilessly take the sword away from Kramer, since someone like Faye or Sherpa would probably make better use of it.

Well...

BOO! BOOOOOO!!!

Sorry. But if I refused him, he might become obsessed, and, well... We don't want him to end up like my OC, do we?

Me neither. I don't need to know what happened to Cecily.

Maybe she was put up for sale, and Savat found her and bought her back, and that's what he really meant when he said he'd "give up any amount of money to get his little girl back."

Marcel best husbando 2020 change my mind.

I don't think I can, to be honest.

Good ol' Bob Ross. We need more people like him.

His spiritual skills have obviously Axelerated since he started living at the Abbey.

Hahah! Excellent! Or should I say, Axelent!

This still hurts to look at...

It's gonna hurt me to copy paste it onto every single update from here on out.

But hey, at least you didn't manage to kill these two!

And Harriett, I've seen that nickname be used for one other person. She also was gay. I'm onto you.

So I decided to look at stuff I'd heard about that was on Netflix.

One of those things was Aggretsuko, which ended up having an unfortunate casting in a minute. To be precise, the main character's voiced by Erica Mendez.

Who's also Bernadetta.

The voices are too similar and I can't let go of a red panda Bernie AU. Not as shut in, but that's AUs for you.

And I'm already seeing FE7 again in Benice's LP. Not that I'd be opposed to another LP, mind. Might be good to have someone who wouldn't entirely validate my extremely negative view of FE7, like Benice does.

Haha... if only people played FE at school... I mean there probably are some people there. But I would like to find someone that has played something besides Three Houses. I found new strategies by playing and trying wacky stuff out, which actually ended up being so satisfactory to get a better clear and it made the game more enjoyable. In fact I'm on a roll recently of new strategies for most maps, and it's been a blast.

Well I do have negative views of FE7, but maybe it'll become a game that I can accept is flawed but will love because when you try to go faster and come up with strategies it's actually super fun (Like FE15 for me???)???? That's what I like about FE, to break it into a puzzle and make it my bitch. Well I mean, not the... bitch... part lol. (Also Rebecca is being used for EXP rankings and she got a good level up!!!

What I don't like is when otherwise serious anime stories get those dumb "funny" moments that are basically just "haha wahmen funny because boobs, watch guy unintentionally touch/see boobs, isn't it amazing?" Out of the animes I've seen (which aren't many to be fair), only one does not suffer from this. Which is, incidentally, also the best of the bunch, for me. So there's that.

Agreed, those scenes are hella dumb "Kyaa you touched my breast? [Random-name]-kun... do you like me????" and I dislike them. Also which anime was it you liked again? You mentioned it before I'm sure.

While we're talking about this, here's a little story: There was this anime called No Game No Life (Great Truth, as I called it at first) that my friend recommended to me. I kinda liked the concept, but between the shitty fanservice, the "funneh" moments, the very... let's say questionable treatment of one particular female character and the humongous asshole that was the main character... well, by episode 2 I was so thoroughly disgusted by the show that I quit, never to come back.

So yeah, that's been my experience with anime. I guess I'm too stuck-up to enjoy most of it. But what do I know. I watched Another when I was 12 and I thought it was fun. Not that I'd call that show high art, but at least the fanservice beach episode in that one wasn't just boobs for the sake of boobs. It had a pretty nice surprise at the end.

...Oh, blistering barnacles-- Can't I have ONE favorite character without either the game killing them or the readers bullying them!? Leave Axel alone, damn you...! Do I constantly bully Hoelun for... Fuck I like Hoelun a lot uhh, for not having a proper promotion!? Maybe I should start!

I mean, I could do it. A complete joke of a unit with terrible strength and an even worse growth. Got a crappy pref that really does not compensate for her terrible strength. ...also for some reason the weapon's description implies that it inflicts a status effect, which it clearly does not.
Her class changing options are also clearly meant to be rejected in favor of the Knight Crest, considering her "promotion" doesn't reset her level and her reclass options can't promote at all. So she is essentially stuck in tier 1.
Even if she does pick the promotion, besides missing out on a proper promotion item, it will also change her movement type from Light Cavalry to Heavy Cavalry, nerfing her heavily on a lot of the remaining maps she can be deployed at. If you do chose a promotion option, you'd probably get more out of making Ma'aya a Dragon Knight since not only does she get a decent power boost, she also gets +1 movement. So hey, she could be a 8 move flier if you also give her the movement potion.

Yeah, to be honest, he could've put more thought into his ruse.

His successor in Vestaria Saga was at least smart enough to go with the "I am a knight eager to help Princess Atholphis liberate our homeland" route. Kinda funny how he basically pretended to be Marcel, come to think of it. But he probably wouldn't have needed to bother, seeing how Tasha is even more of an airhead then Cecily.

In fairness, he does get a head start on the army. For... some reason.

I'd like to imagine that he actually fell behind. It's just the rest of the group picked the wrong direction for their search.
That would actually make kinda sense. Considering Gomez starts in the North West too, and moves East. You'd think his meeting point with Lane would be closer to Navaron then his slaver contact (because otherwise why not move the meeting point closer?), which implies Navaron is in the opposite direction from where he is moving towards.

There goes the dragon. You may've noticed Elbert, Sylvis and Enid are heading up. Can you see where this is going?

Towards disaster most likely, since Elbert won't be able to get into position by the time the wyvern gets aggressive. It's why I usually use Thaddy for the job, since he can move two tiles in forests. Well, that and the whole "Provoke out of hiding" thing.

Even more points? Goodness... I don't know what the cap for these stats is, but Marcel may very well ram it at this rate!

Of course since he has Shieldfaire, anything higher then 42 wouldn't do anything for him. Since no Large Shield has less then 40% accuracy. So once he hits 42, every shield he can use will have a 100% block chance.

Eh, Gomez DID say to you that bounty hunters were after him and that he should better get out of dodge. Your own fault for deciding to stick around instead of following his example.
And he couldn't have specifically told you that they were after the girl and you should therefore run, because his boss quote shows that Gomez really did believe he was dealing with mere bounty hunters. So he wasn't aware of that.

Not much you can really do about this unless you know the Wyvern's exact movement in advance.

Elbert gears up. He's coming today. Would've prefered to bring Clifford, but that would be rather difficult.

I see you already put up the flags before the map even started.

17 hours ago, Saint Rubenio said:

Lgjkwhcy o...Well, as it turns out, we were wrong all along: Lane isn't a serial rapist. He doesn't really care for the merchandise, just the dough. That... is not better. He's still going to get shanked if Kaga lets me.

I don't remember, do we see him again?

17 hours ago, Saint Rubenio said:

So you know how Kaga made a Good Desert Map? Well... here's a painful snow map to compensate. In this map, everyone gets movement reductions. No exceptions. Funnily enough, cavaliers are the best for this map, because they can move as far as... four hexes. In the roads, of course. Everyone gets to move one hex at a time in the forest. Joy.

I hate this map, not just because of the snow, but because I had to beat it with a untrained Marcel, you can imagine how many times he died before I could get anyone to him.

17 hours ago, Saint Rubenio said:

Oh dear. Look who's made its grand entrance. It's the wyvern! Icewyrm, to be precise, which means it's strong against wind but weak against fire.

I had to restart at this point because I din't have anyone with fire weapons. Not that restarting helped much since I didn't train Aegina and my Enid din't promote yet, so all I had was Owen with his below 40% accuracy and Sherlock with Ember arrows.

Oh, he's the spiritual successor to Clifford and his sword uppercuts!

Hope he doesn't follow Clifford's fate as well, his character arc is one of my favorites, hope I didn't jinx it...

17 hours ago, Saint Rubenio said:

Well, here's the thing. The wyvern is passive at first, and heads towards the mountains. Once it gets there, it immediately leaves again, and then it's aggressive. Why? I haven't the faintest idea.

I guess it is passive at first so that it doesn't kill Marcel by accident before you even have a chance to save him.

17 hours ago, Saint Rubenio said:

There goes the dragon. You may've noticed Elbert, Sylvis and Enid are heading up. Can you see where this is going?

Like someone else said, towards disaster...

Yes! Yes! Kaga actually lets me murder the slave trader this time around, and I go and fail miserably! Aren't I just amazing!? Fuck yeah, Ruben! Ruben! Say my name, Ruben! Hurray, give 'em a medal! A medal made of solidified shit! Aaaaaaaarrgghh!

I only managed to kill him thanks to Larentia blocking the village, every other enemy going after Marcel did help a little.

18 hours ago, Saint Rubenio said:

Ahh, about time! Elbert, please provoke the wyvern.

Excellent! Great! Marvelous! Fuckin' A! There goes the second Provoke user! I can already think of at least one map that's going to be Hell on Earth, because the only unit that can provoke things now is Thaddy! What a goddamned joke!

Only one? I can already remember three maps, not even counting the final map.

Elbert is still dead...

Still, one shotting a wyvern is something I really envy you for. Only reason I could beat it was thanks to Sherlock critting it twice, since Owen missed both times I could reach it with him.

What a shield, too. 14 defense, A durability... the 40% chance is a little iffy, but other than that, this shield is great.

This thing is great, lasted me almost the whole game.

18 hours ago, Saint Rubenio said:

...Fuck me... I can scarcely believe it, but that was... almost as bad as last time. Couldn't even get Marcel to 40 L Shield skill! I didn't even get that tiny satisfaction! Good lord... I never thought I'd say this, but I am so looking forward to leaving this accursed chapter behind. Even if the next main mission is going to be excruciating and I'm probably going to lose someone there, too. At least then it'll feel half-right for me to lose units. This is downright shameful.

This chapter had so many side quests, I don't even remember which chapter this was, had to look up the wiki... "Breaking Bridges"... this is gonna be fun, I already feel sick just remembering the map.

Sorry for not commenting on the fanfiction, not following it as much anymore.

Incidentally, that's a pretty good description for Vestaria Saga's Haldyn. He looked and acted like your average Navarre, to the point where I benched him pretty hard... but then it turned out he was just a dork who enjoys looking tough and cool and goes out of his way to help people even if it gets his ass handed to him.

Sounds kind of like Owain from Awakening... minus the fact Owain's so over-the-top it's obvious he's a dork by the end of his recruitment. Point is, his class would have you think he''s a Navarre type... but he's anything but edgy.

It has a nest in the mountains. The slavers found it and ate the eggs when they had to wait for Lane due to his slow arrival. It's now pissed because it's offspring are dead.

Here's a gif I just recorded. Alongside the terrible realization that the Icewyrm's breath has a chance to inflict sleep for no reason. It's probably stated in the weapon's description, which I didn't check because I'm an idiot. I'm... glad we sidestepped that in the actual run. I didn't even know this was a thing...

Probably a bot, yes.

And yes: i took it back then (April 21) and just randomly found it again at the right time.

Ah.

Actually, that was the first and last time that joke was ever mentioned afaik.

You disappoint me, Arknights fanbase.

Why should i have waited if i didn't know i should have waited until after i realized i should have waited?

Maybe if you had waited just in case, then the reason for you to wait would've made itself clear before it was impossible for you to wait.

Bottom-line, be patient, damnit.

Why not though?

Errrgh... okay, then.

Pretty sure it's black though (brown for the italian TV)

Hah! Please don't tell me you missed that reference, of all references. It would be completely unlike you.

It probably has to do with the fact that he used to be hidden (hentai haircut),

I could go on.

Martel.

Okay, sure. Martel. Let's go with that.

Looking at it I probably can.

Sadly there's only 33 tracks as is but it has Between Heaven and Earth, so no complaints here.

Good ol' Ninty. The one time they offer the soundtrack for something, it's missing tracks for no reason. "One step forward, three steps back" seems to be their motto. Goodness, at this point I think the only thing I like about Nintendo are their games. In every other aspect they suck hard. Which, hey, I suppose if you have to pick one aspect to be good at, make it the games, but... Sheesh.

1/10 not enough tackle.

Meh... I'll take that rating.

Gomez looks a little off to me.

Course the colour could be at fault (RIP laptop)

He has a bit of a tan and crimson hair. If it looks different, your laptop is to blame.

Kaga must have looked at BS and thought "how do I make that worse?".

Yes. Sadly... yes.

And once again, fucking wyverns show up.

And once again, I wonder if this could be incompleteable.

Not incompleteable, the wyvern's AI is not too bad (usually it attacks enemies), but it could definitely get ugly fast if one's not careful. As... as I proved myself.

Rlqt4d9d oThe Black Knight always triumphs! Have at you! Come on then.

He's like the Black Knight but he can actually back up his bravado.

Yeah, lance downswinging is dumb.

A fun dumb.

Agreed.

I see the AVGN is in you. 😛

Occasionally, yes.

And of course when you actually can get him everything goes pearshaped.

As per usual.

I see the wyvern is sick of smash with Elbert's attempt to wavedash.

Pfft.

*clicks tongue

I mean, the second ice blast looks like it comes from above, but it's a dragon, I'm not going to argue.

You and your nitpicks...!

Dammit all Arthur.

Good ol' unreliable Arturo...

I would expect that to work as well.

Christ is hopping on that bike, he can't save you.

I should've known it wouldn't. It's not a Saint Rubenio LP until someone dies to terrible RNG coupled with bad choices.

RIP angering boi

Gaah...

So much blood in these side chapters.

Too much, man. Too much.

At least he'll have someone to be with.

The graveyard becomes more and more crowded each day... Soon they'll be able to hold legit parties.

If only you had him in her range.

Hah! Yes, that is the Pallas Leia's theme song. Probably.

If you'd listened to me when I said Berwick's fucked you'd have him by now.

Well, I am replaying Vestaria right now, so... I guess I got both?

That's something Martel can use right?

Nope. M Shield. He can only use L Shields.

I mean, Dutch is right.

The Arnold impression is too good.

Well, there's that. I kinda hoped they'd stay friends, but I guess it's friends+ now.

Maybe so.

And Harriett, I've seen that nickname be used for one other person. She also was gay. I'm onto you.

Hah! Well, not exactly my inspiration, but we'll see what happens.

So I decided to look at stuff I'd heard about that was on Netflix.

One of those things was Aggretsuko, which ended up having an unfortunate casting in a minute. To be precise, the main character's voiced by Erica Mendez.

Who's also Bernadetta.

The voices are too similar and I can't let go of a red panda Bernie AU. Not as shut in, but that's AUs for you.

Ah yes, Bernadetta. The best character in Three Houses.

Yeah ok I like math but I ain't reading that shit, thanks for the table tho.

Awww... I was hoping you'd make heads or tails of it for me.

Haha... if only people played FE at school... I mean there probably are some people there.

But I would like to find someone that has played something besides Three Houses.

Preach.

I found new strategies by playing and trying wacky stuff out, which actually ended up being so satisfactory to get a better clear and it made the game more enjoyable. In fact I'm on a roll recently of new strategies for most maps, and it's been a blast.

You play at school? Huh... I mean, I've spent the last two years playing flash games in class, but that's because I was studying a programming course and thus I get to have a computer at all times in class. I can't see how you could get away with it in regular school.

Well I do have negative views of FE7, but maybe it'll become a game that I can accept is flawed but will love because when you try to go faster and come up with strategies it's actually super fun (Like FE15 for me???)???? That's what I like about FE, to break it into a puzzle and make it my bitch.

You'd enjoy FE5. That's what everyone who loves it says. It's fun because you can break it.

Personally, I find that to be more of a flaw than anything. I hate how warpskip-heavy the lategame is.

Well I mean, not the... bitch... part lol. (Also Rebecca is being used for EXP rankings and she got a good level up!!! GO WAIFU!

Archer waifus. Best in KagaSaga... and uh, they exist in FE.

DO IT!

I shall consider it.

*goes on to rant about other things I happened to skim a bit*
Well first update I believe, the eye-less guys I call them hentai protags... you did... not like that word.

I was probably just exaggerating. And does the rant really surprise you? By now you should know you run the risk of triggering my ranting side every time you speak to me.

Me neither, it's there for your own time and that's it, I don't get how it could be more shameful just because the woman/man there isn't real, as if you're ever getting a chance to bang either lol, it's such a moot argument imo. And it also has some advantages over 3D pr0n, but I digress.

Probably best to digress, yes. The point is, live and let live. Anything's fine in my book long as you don't touch anyone who won't or can't consent, really.

Agreed, those scenes are hella dumb "Kyaa you touched my breast? [Random-name]-kun... do you like me????" and I dislike them.

I wouldn't say they ruin all anime for me, but they definitely get me to roll my eyes. I'd take almost any kind of anime stupidity over that tired nonsense, to be honest.

Also which anime was it you liked again? You mentioned it before I'm sure.

It's called Paranoia Agent and it's about how the world sucks, but also about how Detective Ikari's wife is the most amazing person ever and she deserved so much better. Oh, and not a single fanservice moment. That was great.

And Thracia's women are still beautiful.

Frankly, I think I like them better because of the pants.

Understood, or well I would say something about how I am the sea but it has gotten too repetitive by now that I must find other phrases.

You must indeed.

lmao.

Yes, let us go with that.

oh thank me, or you whatever! ... some comfort!

It's still nowhere near yellow, but I can understand the confusion, given your color-blindness.

That's a new thing I learned today!

Glad to be of service.

Yeah man it suuuuuuuuuuuucks... you're lucky! I have another spaniard friend or well "friend"... long story so anyways, he's also starting 2 weeks from now *sigh*

Ahahahahahah... Sorry.

The effort counts, I can't sprite for shit.

It's not that easy. I mean, have you seen my first sprites? Here, see if you can guess who the hell this is supposed to be.

Ok I'm back, now to read the top update.

Chop-chop! On the double!

Read the name of the image, and yeah why are bandits called Gomez? Are we brigands? I don't get it.

I always found Gonzales to be a bit offensive. I mean, yeah, the whole point is that despite his appearances he's a kind-hearted man, and don't get me wrong, I like Gonzo as much as the next guy, but... c'mon, really? Why is it brigands 80% of the time? And, heck, even when it's not brigands, it's people that look like this!

84-clip0021056439.png

I do hope you do one day, make a GIF of a battle I mean, maybe just record it instead.

I do definitely intend to record the final battle. Maybe. We've still a long way to go, and I may very well not get to do what I intend to do... Suffice to say, if I get my way, it's getting uploaded to my Youtube channel, no questions asked.

The wyvern just woke up, he's gonna go take the morning piss man.

Hah! Good one.

Pain...

Without end.

Maybe his shield growth is higher????? Nah I don't think so, but I hope he caps.

It is pretty high, actually. 70% L Shield growth.

Clever one, Elbert.

His last one, too...

Cool GIF!

Yeah, wyverns get kick-ass animations. And when Larentia fights a wyvern it's even more badass!

I guess I would.

It's settled then.

God damn this just sucks... don't beat yourself up over it it happens to everyone.

I guess, but... dang it, that could've been avoided!

Amazing kill! The icewyrm I mean, 53 damage holy fuck! ... Elbert though... damn...

Yeah, I would've been a lot happier with the kill if it had taken place before Elbert's demise.

You cut yourself off, something bad will happen.

Yes. Yes it did.

The girl likes someoneeeee~.

You think?

Of course it's a mandatory thing lel, not that I dislike it.

Hah! Well, patience. We'll see what happens.

I dunno, I dig Elbert's look. Sorta reminiscent of an 80's greaser, actually.

I like his design too, but I like Clifford's better.

Not that it matters anymore. Ward's beard is the sole survivor of the slaughter of everyone even remotely close to him.

Oh god, when you did that in the FE6 LP, I almost died. I couldn't read for about half an hour.

I do fondly remember that update. One of my personal favorites. And I got to use it as a sort of testing grounds for the following LP!

Also, fun fact: I was using Arkis in my run when I did that FE6 update. How ironic, considering what happened in the actual TRS LP.

I use bad units, for goodness' sake! Why would I use Clifford?!

See? See!? You didn't get him killed, but I did!

Enemies with prepared are NO GOOD.

I agree. If only we got someone with Prepared too, I'd at least get to hit them back...

Sure. Let's go with that, the creepy guy who looks even worse than Lane definitely just wanted her for the resale value.

I mean, Gomez outright orders his men to get Cecily dolled up "for the auction", and the guy tells her to wait while he concludes his business even though Gomez was already gone. Pretty sure he was just a middleman.

...not that that kept him from enjoying the merchandise. Either way, I'm glad he's dead, sad Gomez isn't.

I hope for your sake that he survives the LP. Well, and for mine too because I miscounted his happiness and thusly didn't get his event in chapter 9. And my first run through didn't get far enough to finish Axel's arc.

I am at least going to get his next scenes. As for his ending, well... I hope. But my hope has little worth, as we've seen far too many times before. I will definitely make more of an effort with him than anyone else. I won't be subjected to such heartbreak yet again.

Berserk + unlucky crit against her + 12,000 WYVERNS LANDING 35% HITS ON HER did the trick.

No magic involved outside the berserk? Huh...

Not a trap!

May very well be the worst map in Berwick. Well, it's the worst that I've played. Why would you surround the Armor Knight with Magic axes?!

To be honest... yeah. I can't really think of any maps that get much worse than this. Still, says something about Berwick that I don't even think this one is so abysmal. It's not pleasant, but it's a hundred times better than a stinker like Battle Before Dawn.

And it rarely actually attacks someone it can kill-I think it's entirely RNG-controlled. I'm not certain, though. It could have killed Enid, who OHKO's it, but nope! Axel and his 30-something HP.

I mean, it is a wild animal. I suppose that may've been intentional?

This will go well.

It would've if I wasn't a failure of a tactician...

Oh dang, that looks amazing! Every single time a wyvern does anything, my computer goes down to about 18% speed that it's supposed to run at.

Ahah... Ah, well. Yeah, that's kinda the problem. PS2 emulator is rather demanding. I am lucky enough that both rigs I've played this game on have been powerful enough to handle it. Though, to be fair, from here on out my minimum requirement for all my computers is going to be the ability to play Berwick Saga.

Oh... I'm...I'm so sorry...

It's all right. We'll get through this.

It's okay. Elbert's not all alone anymore. He has Christine...

...Gaaaahhh...

Uh, erm... Ophelia? Volcens? Webber?

Webber... Hwahahahahahahahahah! Ahhh, God, Webber... That's the one positive side-effect to Christine's death. We got to bypass Webber.

Anyway, do you really want that girl to pick between Webber, Volcens and Ruebhen? Is that the options you want her to have? Ophelia doesn't count, she's taken.

Oh no...I could have sworn I saw...No...Say it ain't so...

...What? If you don't tell me what you saw, I can't confirm if it is so or not!

  You do realize that, by your logic, i should basically NEVER post anything and just keep waiting instead, right?

It's either all or nothing with you, isn't it...?

"My logic" isn't to wait forever, it's to wait a little bit, maybe a day. Then, instead of five addendums, you just have to do one or two, because you have the time to remember about things you forgot or for new things to pop up.

I mean, I could do it. A complete joke of a unit with terrible strength and an even worse growth. Got a crappy pref that really does not compensate for her terrible strength. ...also for some reason the weapon's description implies that it inflicts a status effect, which it clearly does not.
Her class changing options are also clearly meant to be rejected in favor of the Knight Crest, considering her "promotion" doesn't reset her level and her reclass options can't promote at all. So she is essentially stuck in tier 1.
Even if she does pick the promotion, besides missing out on a proper promotion item, it will also change her movement type from Light Cavalry to Heavy Cavalry, nerfing her heavily on a lot of the remaining maps she can be deployed at. If you do chose a promotion option, you'd probably get more out of making Ma'aya a Dragon Knight since not only does she get a decent power boost, she also gets +1 movement. So hey, she could be a 8 move flier if you also give her the movement potion.

......

But. She can become a magical girl. So your argument is invalid.

His successor in Vestaria Saga was at least smart enough to go with the "I am a knight eager to help Princess Atholphis liberate our homeland" route. Kinda funny how he basically pretended to be Marcel, come to think of it. But he probably wouldn't have needed to bother, seeing how Tasha is even more of an airhead then Cecily.

Oh yeah, I remember that one. At least I managed to save her, unlike Elbert. Damn Merida, getting kidnapped... I had to intercept Athol so she wouldn't end the map befoer I could get Merida back, but that ended up resulting in another person's death instead! I can only hope this time it'll go better.

I'd like to imagine that he actually fell behind. It's just the rest of the group picked the wrong direction for their search.
That would actually make kinda sense. Considering Gomez starts in the North West too, and moves East. You'd think his meeting point with Lane would be closer to Navaron then his slaver contact (because otherwise why not move the meeting point closer?), which implies Navaron is in the opposite direction from where he is moving towards.

This makes a lot of sense. Funny how falling behind ironically left Marcel closer to the target.

Don't you want to give the Angon to Larentia, so she has an easier time killing Gomez with throwing spears?

...See, that would've been a good idea. I'm not known for having good ideas.

Towards disaster most likely, since Elbert won't be able to get into position by the time the wyvern gets aggressive. It's why I usually use Thaddy for the job, since he can move two tiles in forests. Well, that and the whole "Provoke out of hiding" thing.

Funny how this didn't happen. Elbert was successful. Mostly. It was Sylvis that fucked everything up, surprisingly enough...

Of course since he has Shieldfaire, anything higher then 42 wouldn't do anything for him. Since no Large Shield has less then 40% accuracy. So once he hits 42, every shield he can use will have a 100% block chance.

He already has 97% with his regular shields at the time of writing. That's... damn awesome.

Cue the "Decline Sidequest" ending, where Cecily makes it back without any real issue.

This has to be the most incompetent slaver I've ever seen.

If this goes wrong, you will be dead and Ruben will walk happily into the sunset.

"Happily", are you fucking kidding me? I'm not happy! Why would I be happy with this outcome!? I'm gonna have to bait ballistae with Thaddy! Thaddy!

Come to think of it, you didn't actually show Clifford's grave yet, did you?

No, I forgot. I will do it today.

Oh hey, it's FE5's Blizzard.

Yes.

Enid's magic is above average currently. Due to bracketing, she won't be able to gain more magic until level 11.

True enough. Well, still can hope for those defense points, I guess.

Eh, Gomez DID say to you that bounty hunters were after him and that he should better get out of dodge. Your own fault for deciding to stick around instead of following his example.
And he couldn't have specifically told you that they were after the girl and you should therefore run, because his boss quote shows that Gomez really did believe he was dealing with mere bounty hunters. So he wasn't aware of that.

All in all, that guy is dumb.

Not much you can really do about this unless you know the Wyvern's exact movement in advance.

Too bad about the Ironman, no? Fuck this map... I should've just skipped it!

I see you already put up the flags before the map even started.

Ahah... hah... aahhhh, fuck me...

I don't remember, do we see him again?

In the post-map scene, at the beginning of today's update. Never afterwards.

I hate this map, not just because of the snow, but because I had to beat it with a untrained Marcel, you can imagine how many times he died before I could get anyone to him.

True enough. It's a strong contender for the worst map in the game.

I had to restart at this point because I din't have anyone with fire weapons. Not that restarting helped much since I didn't train Aegina and my Enid din't promote yet, so all I had was Owen with his below 40% accuracy and Sherlock with Ember arrows.

Hah! That's how I did it in both my previous runs. Aegina failed to hit the wyvern both times, and then Owen had to save the day with his shitty accuracy.

Suffice to say, I'm happy Enid is promoted this time around.

Hope he doesn't follow Clifford's fate as well, his character arc is one of my favorites, hope I didn't jinx it...

At the very least, I'm hoping to see the events in the next map. Surviving to the end is another matter altogether.

I guess it is passive at first so that it doesn't kill Marcel by accident before you even have a chance to save him.

It's possible.

Like someone else said, towards disaster...

It wouldn't even have been a disaster if I had healed Elbert instead of trying to Overwatch again...

I only managed to kill him thanks to Larentia blocking the village, every other enemy going after Marcel did help a little.

Yeah, well, I wasn't about to try that. My Marcel's trained and I can't afford to risk Larentia's life that much.

I will miss his provoke dialogues.

So will I... Maybe something will have to be done.

Have to say, all the animations are really cool in both TRS and BS.

I agree. TRS is already pretty good, but BWS is just... wow. Absolutely gorgeous.

Can't really blame you here, I would probably do something like that as well, and missing a 85% hit was just unfortunate.

At least there's that. I lost Elbert, but I get validation from the readers. Wonderful.

Only one? I can already remember three maps, not even counting the final map.

Please refrain from crushing my morale.

Still, one shotting a wyvern is something I really envy you for. Only reason I could beat it was thanks to Sherlock critting it twice, since Owen missed both times I could reach it with him.

Hah! And all it took was Abus dying twice in the prison camp map.

This thing is great, lasted me almost the whole game.

It is pretty damn good. Only problem is that it's yet another item for the pile of items I need repairstones for.

This chapter had so many side quests, I don't even remember which chapter this was, had to look up the wiki...

It has lasted way too long, I agree. It'll be nice to see Reese and Ward in combat again after so long.

"Breaking Bridges"... this is gonna be fun, I already feel sick just remembering the map.

...scratch that, it's not going to be nice.

Sorry for not commenting on the fanfiction, not following it as much anymore.

Don't worry about it.

If he cuts off Ward's d, that''ll just make War.

Then we could call it War's Beard, and it'd be a very Sun Tzu-esque title.

Sounds kind of like Owain from Awakening... minus the fact Owain's so over-the-top it's obvious he's a dork by the end of his recruitment. Point is, his class would have you think he''s a Navarre type... but he's anything but edgy.

He does look pretty edgy at first glance... what even is his FE15 artwork? He looks like's having some serious troubles taking a shit.

I think it's one of those "edgy phases" where he sees the need to try and have a personality... not realizing his charm is his lack of one.

And his baby face. Can't forget the baby face. I still have trouble pinpointing his age. He fights like he's on his 20s, speaks like he's on his 50s, and looks like he's 8. What the hell happened here...?

Maybe Cecily should run away and join the Serkis.

I love how you managed to come up with a pun for Aleatory Old Guy.

I so wanted to do a song about Lane here, and I know the perfect song. But I still can't think clearly enough to lyric. First the Albatross... now this.

Write them down, and you can make the songs when you recover. I, for one, wouldn't really mind if you released them some time past the relevant updates.

It has a nest in the mountains. The slavers found it and ate the eggs when they had to wait for Lane due to his slow arrival. It's now pissed because it's offspring are dead.

Good headcanon. I'll take it.

They say a blizzard makes you tired... but if you go to sleep in it you will never wake up.
I imagine it's the same thing here on two levels.

...That is... too appropriate for my liking.

I am really going to miss those provoke conversations.

I think everyone will. But I do have a little idea...

Also... this gives my last statement a grim second meaning.

Yes. Yes, it does.

Guess that's the one thing that can be said about my health. At least it isn't killing me. Though maybe I should be more careful about the sleep status, considering how Clifford went and Alternate reality Elbert.

So far, everyone who's died has done so after following my commands. Clearly the lesson to be learned here is that doing as I say is a bad idea.

...Then again, don't I tell you guys to farewell at the end of each update...? That's kind of a paradox, isn't it...

9qk5ifz8 oOhh, it's this asshole. We caught him? That's perfect.

Rlqt4d9d oWhat's so funny?

Rnwsddzf oYou really think I'm with them? I'm a victim here, too. They dragged me along and forced me to do their bidding.

Lgjkwhcy o You really expect that to work when you started with an evil laugh? Come now...

Jxtbmp0h oDon't try and weasel your way out of this now, slaver scum!

Rlqt4d9d o...Do you have anything else to say in your defense?

69sic63j o

Rnwsddzf oJust look how fast she changed her tune going from you to me. Don't you think that's funny? What an idiot...

Uedfz3v4 o Thank you very much for your input. Can we kill him now?

Rlqt4d9d o......

Rlqt4d9d oI've got no right to speak on her behalf, but... I'd like to see what will happen if you say that line...

Jl3gye2g o

Txzubig9 o Oh, yeah! Actually, that's a great idea. Let's not kill him yet.

Rnwsddzf o......

Rlqt4d9d oA man like him will have many other crimes to be uncovered.

Lgjkwhcy o"A man like him"? He's the most conspicuous asshole in the world! He just laughed in your face, made the most half-hearted, piss-poor attempt at covering his ass, then confessed to his crimes for no reason at all! And let's not forget the "wet" line, too... How hasn't he been caught already? He's the second-worst con man I've ever seen!

Rlqt4d9d oTake him away.

Jxtbmp0h oYes, sir!

K7evyojj o

Oxm8ceei o......

Ps4nmuuw oCecily, don't you have anything to say to your father?

Oxm8ceei oI'm sorry, Father... I was stupid... and childish... I even stole money from the store...

N2dit7qa oAll right, that's enough of that. I'm just glad you're home and safe.

Tnqvldnf o

Marcel attempts to walk out in the middle of the conversation because he's a rude asshole. Savat stops him.

N2dit7qa oI can't let you go without rewarding you in some way. Take this. I'm just a simple shop clerk, but I can't tell you how grateful I am to you, Sir Marcel.

9safuzgx o

Zweihander! This is Marcel's personal weapon. We'll check it out later.

Rlqt4d9d oIt's a zweihander... But isn't this an incredibly valuable sowrd?

N2dit7qa oIt's worth nothing to me compared to getting my daughter back safe and sound.

Py0ct9zu o

Lgjkwhcy oAhahahah-- Wait, hold on a minute! Didn't we bring him to Savat, then? And... what do you mean, if he ever shows his face around here? I assumed we would lock him up tight! What the hell is going on? Surely we didn't just let him go, did we...?

Rlqt4d9d oBeg your pardon?

N2dit7qa oNothing, forget it. Thanks for all your---

Hftqbqrh o

Iao6rr4e o

8lf3ndne oHa ha ha... Like father, like daughter! Guess eloping runs in the family, eh? Must've been twenty years ago now that you and your old lady... Wait, who are these people?

3vtj77ec oDngtewut oFcmtzuuc o

Yeah... Probably not the best time for that. Bwahahahahah!

8lf3ndne oW-What? Why are you all staring? Did I say something wrong...?

Icyw8xpg o
 
Ozxmuflh oYgovxgpy o

Marcel is training. In the dead of night, on a hill overlooking the sea, for some reason.

Oxm8ceei o......

Ij6s6f0q o

Oxm8ceei oUm... Sir Marcel...

Rlqt4d9d oYes?

Oxm8ceei o...Back then... Why... Why did you come and rescue me?

Lgjkwhcy o Alarmingly enough, the answer is not "because he's a decent human being and that was the obvious course of action."

Rlqt4d9d oIs that why you've been watching me this whole time? To ask me that?

Oxm8ceei oAh... I'm sorry...

X8cjuwte o

Oxm8ceei oI'll go home now...

Rlqt4d9d oCecily...

Oxm8ceei oHuh...? I-I mean, yes? What do you need?

Rlqt4d9d o......

Lev67lkc o

Oxm8ceei oSir Marcel...!

9qk5ifz8 o Hurray! It's a happy ending! Marcel has discovered what it means to be a human bean! He's... still pretty bad at it, but at least he's trying now. He and Cecily have absolutely no chemistry at all, but... I guess they're better than Reese and Lynette, at least.

 

 

 

Ons14mdv o......

Rnwsddzf oHah hah hah... Took you long enough to arrive. The poor fools. I'd love to see their faces when they find my cell empty!

Ons14mdv oLane... You misunderestand.

Rnwsddzf o...?

Ons14mdv oIf both you and Gomez get out of this unscathed, even I won't be able to keep the knights from conducting a manhunt. A manhunt for him, for you... and for everyone with ties to the two of you.

Rnwsddzf o...What are you getting at?

Ons14mdv oFor this ugly matter to die out, someone has to die with it. Blood will satisfy the parties involved, and allow them to move on and forget about it. And, well... I'm afraid Gomez is far more valuable than you. That, and he actually got away. That certainly helps his case.

Rnwsddzf o...Ah, I see... So I'm to end up in a ditch... Though, in my case, I imagine you'll want to make it look like a suicide.

Ons14mdv oYou know me too well, Lane. It truly is a shame that I have to do this. But don't worry. I won't mess up your face. I know how much you love staring at yourself in the mirror.

Rnwsddzf oHeh... Ahahah... To think, the dumbest, most gullible girl I've ever handled would be my downfall... Pathetic... It almost feels like the Goddess is playing a joke on me... Hahahah... Ahahah...!

Ons14mdv oThe Goddess, huh? Hm. Perhaps. Why don't you try asking her yourself? Oh, and... give her my regards, if you would.

Rnwsddzf oHahahahah! AHAHAHAHAHAH! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA--

 

 

 

Ons14mdv o...Ever since the Knights of Sinon arrived in Navaron, I've had to cut ties with so many associates... Perhaps I shall have to double my efforts to deal with them.

 

 

 

Jcjomn7c o

So, the Zweihander! 17 might, B durability, brave effect? What's not to love? This thing more or less fixes all of Marcel's problems as long as it exists. Well, all of them except the movement. But we're working on that.

O26yjxcd o

I forgot to visit the cemetery in the last town update. "Thankfully", another death has occured to remind us that we should probably go there.

Khvtmyi0 o

No music in the graveyard, only the sound of waves. Just saying, because I'm not sure if I have mentioned this before.

Anyway... fuck me, it's starting to look far too crowded for my liking... Also, why does Clifford's grave look so shitty?

Sveflioq o
 
Oi39hdam o

5ppfqll8 oThese are the deceased's belongings. Please, take them.

Ph16wvzi o

Okay, that's our items back. As well as the lance that nobody can use now.

2kqqn0y9 o

Next up, Elbert.

Xle3rc4z o
 
5ppfqll8 oExcuse me, yada yada have some items.
 
Tuuqlhkl o
 
Enbq8ouw o

Oho! What's this? Well, for starters, a mistranslation. I already reported this. I imagine it's supposed to be something along the lines of "this was found among the belongings of the deceased."

Ffrwnw6f o

I was hoping we would never see this, but this is the first of the bonus items the game hands over to the worst of the worst. Four dead units (unrecruited folks, like Esteban in our case, don't count - there needs to be a grave) nets us this charm.

0zmgjhx8 o

17 avoid?! That's... huh. That's not bad at all, actually. I can give this to Faye and turn her into an unhittable juggernaut.

9tuxlnwf o

All right, let's go. I use what little cash I have to hire all the mercs I've left, sans Perceval. I'm pretty sure Thaddy will join after this, and it is imperative for Axel to come to the next main mission. And, well, Owen is always great to have.

E1owoemx o

 

Qmfoju2v o

Not wasting any time, eh? We're immediately thrusted into the throne room, where we find Volcens doing what he does best: whine.

Pobpolog oNow that Fort Remagen is lost, I am afraid that it is our only option, Your Majesty...

2xdxkwpj oHerman! What has that cretin Rosecchar been doing?! I ordered him time and time again to take his 5,000 men and guard Fort Remagen with his life!

Jhvoux35 o General Rosecchar has lost his nerve and surrendered to the enemy, your Majesty.

Uedfz3v4 o What?! Not our ally Rosecchar! But he was such a great man! He wanted to execute his men for the crime of protecting innocents!

Jhvoux35 o Those who served under him have all been captured or killed.

Jyaetwcl o

Lgjkwhcy o Oh? Is that so? How... interesting. Oh, I'd like to note that I enjoy Volcens's animations on the throne. He sits up to scream at Herman, then goes back to his usual "resting cheek on hand" pose. His sprite has a lot of personality, but I can't show it off all that well in screenshot format.

Jhvoux35 o I have no excuses. Clearly, I had a lapse in judgment.

2xdxkwpj oWhat would you have me do, Roswick? Can this city successfully fight an enemy invasion head-on?

Pobpolog oUp until now, we have made do with the resources available to us, but Navaron now shelters more than 50,000 refugees within its walls. If our sources of water were cut off, we would quickly run out. The battle would be lost before it could even begin.

Fblhvnzn o

Txzubig9 o I wholeheartedly agree! Let's go, Padolf. Time to go. You two as well, Volcens, Herman...

Pobpolog oI beg your pardon, Minister Padolf? You suggest that I condemn 50,000 innocent people to their deaths?!

Hxq4hdqj oNot all of them... Just the elderly, the children, the women staying at home...

Uedfz3v4 o You know, I feel rather filthy just by transcribing these words.

Hxq4hdqj oIn emergencies like these, we can only afford to save those who have some sort of use to the city.

Pobpolog oMinister Padolf, have you gone mad?! What would be left of this country after such barbarity?! This is my city. Its people are my people. Now hold your tongue!

Jhvoux35 o Calm yourself, Duke Roswick. If we did as Minister Padolf suggested, then the entire army would desert. Honestly, Minister, how could you even suggest such idiocy?

Gcupx1qp o

Lgjkwhcy o ...Was what? "A great plan"? "A mistake, I apologize"? Or, no, wait... "your idea"? Did Herman use you as a means to put this absolutely bonkers idea into Volcens's mind without risking his own credibility? Nah, that can't be... Herman isn't so much of a snake. Is he?

Jhvoux35 o I agree with Duke Roswick. Destroying the bridge may be our only option at the moment. But how shall we accomplish this? Do you have a plan, Duke Roswick?

Pobpolog oOrdinarily, I would leave the task to my military engineers. However, they were stationed at Fort Remagen and were captured during the battle. Still, it seems that rather than kill them, the Empire has kept them alive to help repair the fortress.

Jhvoux35 o My scouts have reported as much as well, yes.

Pobpolog oWith so many soldiers now lost, we cannot hope to retake the fortress without leaving Navaron vulnerable. But the previous battle was a costly one for the Empire as well. They will be weakened and waiting on reinforcements to assist them.

9qk5ifz8 o Hah! I wish this was true. This mission is tough as nails.

Jhvoux35 o ......

Ydcncfa3 o

Pobpolog oThen, the raiders will hold off the Imperial counterattack until the engineers can destroy the bridge.

Jhvoux35 o But do we have the manpower to undertake even such a small mission? And who in their right mind would undertake such a suicidal attack?

9qk5ifz8 o Gee, I sure do wonder who it'll be.

Jhvoux35 o Do you have someone in mind?

Hxjgqlcu o
 
 
K7qiqmtx o

That was smooth. I imagine he was standing outside the chamber, ear on door, waiting for somebody to make the question so he could make his dramatic entrance.

Meoilxpy oThe Knights of Sinon will gladly accept this mission, Your Majesty.

Hxq4hdqj oYou again?! Have you not learned your lesson, boy? How dare you brazenly waltz into this chamber uninvited! Oh, I see how it is... You must have conspired with Duke Roswick again...

Lgjkwhcy o Conspired with Duke Roswick = accepting yet another suicide mission that may very well save all our lives, apparently.

Jhvoux35 o ......

Udl6bzh6 o

Meoilxpy oYes, Your Majesty! I will not fail you!

Aycyozsv o

Oh yeah, if you haven't noticed, Sienna's here. She's honoring her promise not to roast anyone. I can only imagine the pain she must be in...

Nhtifkqg o
 
 
S7wqyubu o

Zlonc8lu oHello, Sir Ward. Well, he's...

Vzp5kark o

9qk5ifz8 o ...Having a fun little chat with Maria, apparently.

3cxl4xfi oWhat on earth is going on back there...?

Zlonc8lu oSister Maria! Leave Mr. Burroughs alone!

Ghpmbzfp o
 
Zczu5nlx o

Hwahahahahahah... She just bails immediately.

6ulefpiz o

And here's the man of the hour!

B39aykcf o

3cxl4xfi oYou're looking well.

Stqgibtb oYep, thanks to you. All back to my old self!

3cxl4xfi oThen what are you still lazing around here for?! Get going! I am sorry, Sister Luciana. I should not have brought you such a troublesome man...

Stqgibtb oHey, I'm not all that bad! In fact, I want to repay you for saving me the other day. So how 'bout it? Let me join your army!

Txzubig9 oYes!

Drrjcf0g o

Uedfz3v4 o Ward, I said yes! Who's the tactician? You stick to being a badass and let me do my job.

3cxl4xfi oBesides, you are a ballistician, correct? We do not have any ballistae for you to use.

Stqgibtb oI'm no deserter! And I've got an idea of where to get a ballista.

3cxl4xfi oHmm... I will speak to Lord Reese. If you do manage to acquire a ballista, then bring it to the West House.

Stqgibtb oYou won't regret this, old-timer! All right, Sister, I'm heading out. Time for me to get to work!

Aluuomie o

I do hope "work" does not mean "Maria". 'Fraid that kinda experience won't give you experience points. Nor will it kill my enemies.

S4yclwka o

Burroughs's idea, naturally, is to go to Mr. Klamping Cheeks and manipulate him into giving him a free ballista.

Jnyzls3c oPlus, I've already got my hands full with orders from the military. I can't go making exceptions for you.

Stqgibtb oWhat kind of talk is that? Aren't we friends, Klamp? Hey, Bianca darlin', why don't you try asking him?

9rms7yfx o

Oh yeah, like that's gonna work. Your friend couldn't be convinced, and you try asking the girl who hates you?

C8jklrac o

5dudyczy oKlamp, don't listen to a thing this loser says to you if he can't even foot the bill.

Stqgibtb o...Guess I've no choice. All right, don't tell anyone, but... The truth is, the Empire is coming to attack this city directly soon. We soldiers will do our best to hole ourselves up safely, but if we lose, the city will be taken... If that happens... Well...

Jnyzls3c o...Then what...?

Dw11itkf o

Jnyzls3c oH-Hey! Don't even think about stuff like that, Burroughs! I'd never let that happen!

5dudyczy oDon't you give this idiot the time of day, Klamp. He's just trying to use you.

Jnyzls3c oBut still... What if he's right? If the Empire captures this city, then what will happen to you...?

5dudyczy oI'll be fine, Klamp. We're not gonna lose to them.

Lgjkwhcy o That is debatable. The fate of this city hinges on whether or not I can succeed in the next mission. And I dread the next mission.

Jnyzls3c oBut still... what if...?

Stqgibtb o...You guys still listening to me?

Jnyzls3c oWha...? Oh, what did you want again?

Stqgibtb o...As I was saying, I've made up my mind to join the Sinon Knights so I can help protect the city.

Jnyzls3c oYou, a Sinon Knight? They'd really let you join them?

9qk5ifz8 o Of course! Ballisticians are cool as hell!

Stqgibtb oYep, Sinon doesn't have ballisticians, so they must've been attracted by my considerable reputation.

F0aog4m6 o

Lgjkwhcy o ...Uh... I-I do not remember this particular part, though...

Stqgibtb oIt's a bit of a drag, but they seemed to be in such dire straits that I just had to help them.

Jnyzls3c oWhoa... That's amazing, Burroughs! You always were impressive... Good to have a friend in high places.

Stqgibtb oBut today, I am ballista-less... Doesn't my arm look lonely to you without a crank and lever to pull?

Jnyzls3c oIt does a bit, yeah... And, well... If the Sinon Knights are gonna help with defense, we'd better get prepped as soon as possible...

31yspi0h o

5dudyczy o*Murderous glare*

Jnyzls3c oBut I still neeed at least enough to cover the material costs...

Stqgibtb oOh, don't worry about that. The Sinon Knights will pay for it.

9qk5ifz8 o Hah! You serious? You joined the wrong company if you intend to send us your bills. We're fuckin' broke!

Stqgibtb oLike you said, you've got friends in high places now!

Lgjkwhcy o High places. The King's most despised people in the dukedom. Yeah, sure.

Jnyzls3c oAll right! So that's one ballista and, let's say, 20 bolts, too.

Stqgibtb oYou're the best, Klamp!

Jnyzls3c oJust promise me, Burroughs... You've gotta protect the city!

Stqgibtb oYou can leave that to me! Those Imperials will have to walk through a veritable deluge of my bolts before they reach Navaron's gates!

Uwzpxkow o

Meoilxpy oThat's enough, Burroughs. I believe you.

Stqgibtb oThank you very much! Excuse me, Lord Reese.

R1zcmllr o

Meoilxpy oI think he'll make a good soldier. ...But it seems you don't agree, do you, Ward?

3cxl4xfi oI have no objections to your decision, milord... but...

Meoilxpy o"But"...?

Qip6d2hk o

Lgjkwhcy o Oh, we're just gonna leave it there? Sure, that's fine by me--

3cxl4xfi oMilord, do you truly want to place one more life in the hands of our tactician?

Meoilxpy o...Ah, you've got a point there...

Uedfz3v4 oWha-- Hey!

 

Meoilxpy oAn invoice? For what?

Ps4nmuuw oOne bronze ballista and twenty bolts,

Lgjkwhcy oIs it too much to ask that this costs 90D?

Ps4nmuuw ofor a total of 5200 denarii.

Lgjkwhcy oFigures...

Ps4nmuuw o...Shall I pay them, milord?

Ybu42p7u o

I'd love to, but I can't.

Ps4nmuuw oAccording to the invoice, the fee is due by the month's end. Otherwise, this order we allegedly placed will be cancelled. If you change your mind about paying them, please let me know anytime.

9qk5ifz8 oWell, that's fine. I'll just pick up this month's Dad Funds and pay the fee...

Ujecmzls o

...Hello? Any time now, Tianna. Where's my letter?

Fwpqjf9k o

......

Ah, balderdash.

Epxcq2gn oGiegh1of o

Well, Burroughs has joined us regardless. For some reason, he starts with 87 experience. Not sure what's up with that. Anyway, even if he's unarmed, let's talk about him.

Burroughs is a great utility unit only held back by his mediocre availability. He has 2 move and terrible stats, but they don't matter. His job is to hang back behind our lines and shoot bolts at things. Ballisticians in this game are extremely strong, and Burroughs is no exception. He has the following skills:

- Battle Cry on top of ballistae is a special sort of carnage.

- Armsthrift, always useful, more so when your weapon type is rare and expensive, as ballistae are.

- Hurry can help Burroughs to get to locations slightly faster.

- He doesn't have it now, but it's worth noting that he learns Aim at level 7. It helps him immensely, especially due to how ballistae work.

This guy can erase plenty of troublesome targets if you use him well. However, ballistae in this game require some proper thought to be used correctly. For starters, they cannot attack after moving. There's a glitch that allows Burroughs to do so, but I don't know how to perform it, and I'd rather avoid such tactics in this playthrough. Also, Burroughs, like all ballisticians, only covers one particular area in front of him. He needs to spend a turn turning around if he wants to aim elsewhere. Then there's the fact that he's extremely fragile and cannot dodge for shit. That... could be a problem.

In a few words, Burroughs can be a little difficult to use, but if employed well, he can be a great asset to the team. Enemy healers? Thieves escaping with loot? Troublesome archers with one thousand arrows chilling on top of an objective? Fear not, for as long as they do not have Arrowbane, Burroughs is on the case. And, in one particular case, even if they do have Arrowbane!

...Not just yet, though. He's unarmed, and even if he wasn't, I wouldn't dare to bring him to the next mission. We'll get to see him in the sidequests, though, never doubt it.

0fynbwxw o

...Well, I mean, I could sell the fortify and the wyrmskin shield to get the money for the ballista, but... no. It's not happening. He can wait. He cannot cross hills or shallows, and in the next mission, that means death.

Sqcawj9k o

Citizen request time. First off, long-lost dad.

Kgblooy0 o
 
P8shjlpn oTbohyhq8 o

H24blq3o oYou asked to see me?

3cxl4xfi oAh, Adel. Excellent timing. Would you mind paying a visit to the atelier for me?

H24blq3o o(...The atelier...) I-I...

3cxl4xfi oWhat is the matter, Adel? If you have other business to take care of, I can ask someone else...

H24blq3o oNo, that's all right, General. I will do it. However, we will be departing on our mission soon, is that not true? I would not want to make the others have to wait for me to return...

3cxl4xfi oFrom the message they recently sent to us, it seems to be urgent.

Ananv42m o

H24blq3o oUnderstood, General. I will go there immediately.

For4lw19 o

I like how, in spite of their awkwardness due to Leon's shitty advice, Lumiere still called for Adel first and foremost. Guess she hasn't forgotten about the time he took points for her, even if he did follow up with a completely dumb attempt at flirting.

Biklshgy oSorry for calling you all the way over here...

H24blq3o o...I don't mind... I heard it was something urgent?

Biklshgy oYes, that's right... I'll let Mr. Virgil explain.

E8siu84l o

9qk5ifz8 o You may remember Virgil as the then-nameless man who helped Ward bring Clifford back to Alex's in his introduction. Virgil helped bring Vergil back to the tavern. There's no way this was an accident. Heck, Aethin told me that in japanese their names are exactly the same, he just gave them different spellings for convenience's sake. I love it.

Tsv5se0h oI'm an apothecary. I sell herbs, medicines, poutices... those sort of things. Right now, I need your help regarding a particular medicinal herb.

H24blq3o oAll right. Tell me more.

Tsv5se0h oI make a living by buying ingredients here in Navaron and selling medicines to villages around the countryside. But just recently, I went to a village only to find that it was quarantined...

Lgjkwhcy o Oh, dear. This is going places.

Tsv5se0h o...due to the plague.

H24blq3o oThe plague?!

Uedfz3v4 o Not the PLAGUE!!!

Tsv5se0h oThankfully, it's not as deadly as it used to be. It can be cured now... If you have the medicine, that is. But distribution is scarce because of the war, and the village didn't have much stored up to begin with.

0hmkqssj o

H24blq3o oHow dreadful... I can see why this was urgent.

Tsv5se0h oYes... What I need your help with is getting proper medicine to them. Specifically, I need to stock up on cigusa herbs, which are the main ingredient used to make the cure.

H24blq3o oWhere can I find those?

Tsv5se0h oJust northwest of here... at the town by Fort Remagen. That's why I need your help. I can't go there with the front line of the war so close.

H24blq3o oTrue, thanks to us, it's about to become a battlefield yet again. It's far too dangerous for civilians like you to get close there...

Z5iholoh o

9qk5ifz8 oHah! Adel knows who is in charge of his movements.

Tsv5se0h o......

H24blq3o oThe plague... Without medicine, it's as deadly as the Imperial Army itself. So why endanger yourself? Why go so far as to risk your life and travel to that village?

Tsv5se0h o...To keep a promise I made to my father.

Txzubig9 o To your LONG-LOST FATHER!?

H24blq3o o......

Tsv5se0h o......

9qk5ifz8 oThat's not my addition, by the way. There really is an awkward silence after that line.

H24blq3o o...So, where exactly in Remagen Town can I find those herbs?

Tsv5se0h oYou mean... You'll help?!

3jdgrtty o

Biklshgy o...R-Right... Growing cigusa herbs is very difficult, so there's only one place near the city that cultivates them... There's an old man who lives just by the southern end of Remagen Bridge. Once you find the house, ask for Matthew. He'll help you.

H24blq3o o...All right. We'll be in the thick of battle, so I can't make any promises, but I'll do my best to get the herbs.

W18a82tt o

That was wholesome enough, minus the real life parallels, I suppose. Next up, fancy tactical terminology.

B7x0gebn o

Brighton?! First there was that one guy called Halvan, now Brighton. All right, then.

Meoilxpy oWhat would that be?

O57kowqy oOne of my operatives has been infiltrating enemy lines and gathering information for some time now. I need you to get in touch with him and exchange information.

Meoilxpy oIn the middle of the battle?

O57kowqy oYes. This information is vital to us. Even a small hint of knowledge can save the lives of thousands. There is always more than one kind of battle being fought in times of war.

Meoilxpy oI understand. Where can I find this man?

O57kowqy oAs a part of his cover, he is posing as a regular Imperial soldier.

Meoilxpy oIs there anything in particular that would make him stand out?

O57kowqy oThat would rather defeat the point, wouldn't it?

Lpp4nnkr o

Txzubig9 o Hahahahahahahahahahah... That line is so funny. Also, this is gonna be the sequel to Arkis, isn't it? Ah, well, no matter. Thankfully, I am an omnipotent entity within the Berwick Saga universe, so I know who this person is. Getting to him will be another matter altogether, though...

Meoilxpy o......

O57kowqy oMaybe this will help. Look for someone who isn't actively trying to kill you. And of course, for the love of the Goddess, don't kill him, either.

Meoilxpy o...I understand.

O57kowqy oExcellent. I'll leave it in your hands, then.

Meoilxpy oI will do my best.

V1ryayct o

Finally, it's the atelier again.

Uh1jaidv o

Tb9vqadg oHmm... This Imperial design has a lot of waste that could be trimmed... But I think you're right. Refurbishing these would be cheaper and easier than making new ones.

Ilrbpdns oJust thinking long-term, you know? The longer this war goes on, the more our men's equipment will wear down. Gotta be careful with supplies so they can keep fighting at their best. It's times like these when craftsmen like us really shine!

Tb9vqadg oThen I'd better get to work, eh?

Notice that Lumiere has moved around back there. Cute little detail.

Ps4nmuuw oGood day, Mr. Danton. What are you up to this afternoon?

Ilrbpdns oHello there, Lady Tianna! I was just talkin' with Orlando here. We're workin' out how to best reuse some of the old materials we've got.

Ps4nmuuw oYou seem quite excited about it. What does that entail?

Ilrbpdns oWell, we've got all this equipment taken off Imperial soldiers... But even though it's made of quality stuff, it's honestly all a load o' junk.

Lgjkwhcy o I agree. 40% accuracy is no good.

Ilrbpdns oBad design, awful craftsmanship.

K4zvzdy3 o

Ilrbpdns oThat's the plan, anyway. Orlando's gonna work out the details.

Ps4nmuuw oI am happy to see that you two are as dedicated to your work as always.

Tb9vqadg oWell, the Empire's got more supplies and resources to work with than us. And as we lose more sharp minds to the Imperial conquests,

Lgjkwhcy o Because the "sharp minds" keep getting conscripted, as stated in update 2. Thanks, Volcyboy.

Tb9vqadg owe're starting to fall behind in our engineering.

Ps4nmuuw oIs that so?

Ilrbpdns oOh, yeah. Loads of Imperial artisans have been makin' strides in technology over the past couple o' years.

Y8bvgqeb o

Ps4nmuuw oI see... Interesting...

Ilrbpdns oBut as we all know, there's nothin' in this world that's infinite. Someday, those Imperials will start needin' to conserve materials too.

Ps4nmuuw oWell, for the time being, I am glad to know we are in Mr. Orlando's capable hands.

Tb9vqadg oYou're too kind, Lady Tianna. I'm just doing my job as a craftsman. Say, since you're here, can I ask you to pass on a message to Lord Reese?

9dtzqvts o

Ps4nmuuw oTheir spears in particular?

Tb9vqadg oYeah, that's my current project. Three of them should do it.

9qk5ifz8 o I think we already have three of them. There'll be chances to get some more in the actual chapter, but these spears are bad, anyway.

Tb9vqadg oI'll pay for them, too, of course.

Ps4nmuuw oVery well. I will communicate your request to Lord Reese before he departs.

Tb9vqadg oThanks, Lady Tianna!

Qwv0hjdj o

That done, it's time for some character events. First off, Arturo.

It5jyz7z o

Aawyimei oYes, Mother?

8xymwwsc o...I've heard a rumor regarding your father's whereabouts.

Aawyimei oWhere?!

8xymwwsc oIn the town of Omrle, which is now occupied by the Imperial Army.

Aawyimei oOmrle... That's by Fort Remagen.

9qk5ifz8 o At first I thought it was an inconsistency that the town by Fort Remagen is given two different names here and in Adel's request, but... Actually, they're separate enough that I could believe they're two different towns. Omrle is on top of a hill, you see, and Town Remagen is down below by the river. We'll see it next update.

8xymwwsc oA Narvian soldier heard from a local that there was a man fitting his description in the town.

Aawyimei oAre they certain it was him...?

8xymwwsc oI cannot be sure... But they said he was wearing the uniform of an Imperial soldier.

Aawyimei oThat's not possible... It must be someone else...

8xymwwsc oI want to believe that as well... But still, if there's any chance that he is still alive...

Kw8emwod oBaqtxqpl o

Aawyimei o...I understand, Mother. The Knights of Sinon will be heading to Fort Remagen soon. I will ask Lord Reese to allow me to search for this man you heard of. Perhaps this will be our chance to finally learn the truth...

8xymwwsc oArthur...

Aawyimei oI don't know where Father is, but if there are any clues to be found, I will seek them out.

8xymwwsc oGodspeed, Arthur...

X6xbtgfp o

Next up is Faye's return.

O7vz79zj o

There she is! Back after two whole maps in which I probably wouldn't have deployed her anyway!

Kvbwgecb oLord Reese... Lady Tianna...

Meoilxpy oWe got your letter, so we've been waiting here for you.

Kvbwgecb oThank you...!

Ps4nmuuw oWe tried to get General Ward to come as well, but he mumbled something about young girls and then left in a hurry to pay a visit to Mr. Erzheimer.

Kvbwgecb o...Oh.

Oingjg8x o

Oh, shit!

Cfwi7tfd o
 
Vyngllin o
 
Azo59idz o

That... was beautiful.

Tq6qoxkn o

Meoilxpy o......

Ps4nmuuw o......

Kvbwgecb oLord Reese... Are you unhurt?

Iq3zvgli o

Meoilxpy oF-Faye... You saved my life... What was that technique...?

Kvbwgecb oI learned it from my father. It's the power that I'm going to use to defeat Chaos.

Ps4nmuuw oAmazing... When you rushed past, it was as if you had become the wind itself!

Ifbpmruq o

(Notice, by the way, her new portrait. Her vest is red now. It's such a minor change that I don't even need to upload a new portrait)

Kvbwgecb oMy father bestowed the honor upon me to learn of this ancient skill.

Meoilxpy oThe Celestial Dance?! Until now, I had only heard of it in myths and legends of swordmasters from the ancient Orient... Such a magnificent display of swordsmanship...

Kvbwgecb oThank you...

Ps4nmuuw oDoes that mean you have become a swordmaster of Izmil yourself, Miss Faye?!

Kvbwgecb oYes... When I followed Chaos to Narvia, a new strength seemed to take root inside of me. It is thanks to you, Lord Reese, and all of the Knights of Sinon, that I have been able to accomplish this.

9qk5ifz8 o Don't forget Faramir, saving you when the game demanded I killed you to keep Sakhalin from dying. And... y'know, the two other times I got you killed because I'm bad at this.

8dfujv2w o

Uedfz3v4 o Yeah-- Wait a second! Do my eyes deceive me?!

7gbfesgo o

...Holy... Moly. That's... even more subtle than Runan's smile!

Kvbwgecb oLord Reese... When I journeyed to my homeland, I had much time to think about all I have done so far. I did not try to understand others, nor did I truly understand myself... All I could think about was Chaos... I had to recover the Divine Twins and restore my father's honor... And even now, my drive to regain that which was lost is undaunted. However, it was foolish of me to insist that I had to do so alone.

89npk0dz oIndeed, there is no shame in trusting in the assistance of others. Without Tianna or Ward by my side to help and guide me, I never could have lived this long.

Lgjkwhcy o Emotionless bastard forgot the most important person: Derrick. Grrr...

89npk0dz oAnd so, as long as this war continues, let us share in the same glory and victory together.

Kvbwgecb oLord Reese, you would be willing to help me in my task?

Meoilxpy oChaos is a servant of the Empire. I see no reason why we should not collaborate against our common foe.

Lgjkwhcy oThere goes the smile. Blink and you'll miss it. Squint and you'll also miss it. Will we ever see it again? Who knows.

Meoilxpy oHowever, our battles ahead will be harsh and difficult... There may be little reward in it for you.

Lrnq7zeh o

Kvbwgecb oThat is more than sufficient for me. Then I swear to you, Lord Reese. On the honor of the people of Izmil, I vow to dedicate my sword and life to your cause, Lord Reese!

C6inrnfl o

Hurray! Recruitment and promotion!

Geqllhwm o

Astra, Blade, and stats. Not bad, not bad at all!

Astra is as you'd expect. It has a long-ass cooldown, but when it is done charging up, you just use the command, and Faye will unleash a volley of five blows upon the enemy. In most cases, this will result in the enemy's painful demise. Temble in fear, Chaos! This girl's all powered up now, and not only that - she's got friends to back her up! Ahahahahahaha...

Romrm4zl o

Vnr7otde o......

Vnr7otde oLooks like you've been training...

9qk5ifz8 o What gave it away? The very slight change in clothing signifying her promotion? The buff myrmidon muscles?

Vnr7otde oStill refusing to give up?

Kvbwgecb oThe next time Chaos and I meet, he will be the one who falls!

Vnr7otde oDon't you get it yet? You're throwing your life away. No matter how hard you train, you'll never beat him alone.

6spmfdrq o

Vnr7otde o......

Kvbwgecb oTwice, you've saved my life. I am grateful to you for that.

Vnr7otde o......

Lgjkwhcy o A most riveting conversation, this.

Kvbwgecb oWhen I first fought Chaos, you were the mysterious man who saved me. Is that not so? Faramir... I will not ask you why you've chosen to protect me...

Q7sjpow8 o

Vnr7otde o...Even with your new friends' help, you might still be killed.

Kvbwgecb oJust like you've fought to protect me, I also want to protect others. I've come to learn that my sword should not fight for my own sake. I have you to thank for helping me to realize this.

Vnr7otde oI honestly don't know what you're talking about... "To master the sword is to become a master of killing others." That's what I always learned from the man who raised me.

Kxclxskf o

 

J5um0fdo o

It's flashback time.

Cqefmtnl o

Fun little tidbit: there's an unused portrait in the files that's Cowen but with red eyes and a garbage man getup. I wonder what's up with that...

Kvbwgecb oFather...

Sofj1tk4 oWhat you still lack is not skill... That is the simple part. At its core, to master the sword is to become a master of killing others. In other words, those who follow the path become weapons themselves. Thus, we must make our own hearts into a sheath for that weapon.

Kvbwgecb oA sheath...

Sofj1tk4 oYes. We must have the wisdom to restrain ourselves. In learning to become a killer, we must also learn how not to kill.

P2gake0p o

Lgjkwhcy o Are you sure about that, Cowen? Because personal experience indicates otherwise...

Sofj1tk4 oThe devil inside us all must never be allowed to run loose. Use your gifts for what is right. Do you understand, Faye?

Kvbwgecb oYes, Father...

Pdlrawhd o

Vnr7otde o......

Kvbwgecb oMy sword fights for the meek and the downtrodden of this world.

Vnr7otde o...In that case, I've got nothing left to tell you.

Kvbwgecb oThank you... Faramir...

Kznjmbor o
 
D0tp5fiy o

Oh, snap! The world's most obvious plot twist! He claimed to not know Cowen, but he did! Most likely raised by him, even, which makes him Faye's big brother. I just hope they don't go down the same road as Reese and his own little sister-in-heat...

Anyway, this scene may seem to imply that Faye's casual mode is gone, but... nope. Faramir will continue to come and save her, as many times as it takes. I cannot thank him enough for that, I'll probably be needing his services a couple more times before the credits roll.

Incidentally, I'm probably going to have to hire Faramir once or twice. Faye's ending (which I've never seen, by the way - didn't use her in my second run, missed it in my first for reasons) requires that Faramir is permanently recruited. He needs 3 happiness, which should be pretty easy to get. Just gotta hire him when I get money. Some money. At all.
