If only Rickard could follow in her footsteps as a archer (or better yet hunter of vengeance), but alas the path of a thief cannot be abandoned.

I would be awesome to have Thief as a normal reclass option.
It does make more sense than having the Ballistician class there, or Manaketes and freelancers/chameleons.

Ouch poor Wrys, he is always such a beloved character. Although its interesting that this is the death that makes you think the run might end prematurely.

This chapter was a bit of a turning point, I suppose.
My army ended up being in shambles by the end of it.
And I just really like Wrys, he was getting blessed too.

Bantu is getting a lot more use than I expected him to. I guess I never gave the old guy a chance to shine like this.

Bantu was basically a Devil Axe user without the chance to get recoil.
I wouldn't use him in normal runs, but his damage and bases with the Firestone bonus hold up against cavaliers and knights until late in the game.
 

23 hours ago, Eltosian Kadath said:

Oof, now there is the death that would make me worry about the future. Although if you can get Sedgar enough a few levels, you will be in better straights at least.

I should really give some more levels to Sedgar.
I'll be relying on him a lot in the coming chapters.

Is this the first boss whose weapon had to break?

Mannu was the first boss who had his weapon broken.
Breaking Firestones is really easy, though.
Since they waste a use, even if they cannot counter.

8 hours ago, Eltosian Kadath said:

Its funny how many of these forges are just memey picks. Now Rickard shall wreck his vengeance against the world.

Training Rickard will be fun, even if it's quite risky.
Still, we have two Master Keys and two or three Door Keys left in the convoy, so I'll figure something out.

8 hours ago, Eltosian Kadath said:

There still being people on the bench after all that death...I guess they give you a lot of replacements even before the generics.

We'll most likely be recruiting generics soon.
We only barely reach the deployment cap with our current units after all.

8 hours ago, Eltosian Kadath said:

Ouch. Well seeing as I think this is Roshea's first battle after his recruitment that isn't the biggest loss, but Cord has been chipping around in the background for a while.

Vyland can take Roshea's place.
We don't really have a magic replacement for Cord, sadly.

8 hours ago, Eltosian Kadath said:

Having to break a normal enemy's weapon to succeed sounds utterly ridiculous (and tedious), but fortunately the enemy AI is dumb enough to make that work.

We'll be making use of this strategy in two more chapters.
Once in the next chapter and once more in the Battle for Altea.

8 hours ago, Eltosian Kadath said:

I was kinda expecting Jagen to go out to a crit like this, but Wendell falling, especially so late is utterly tragic. With the death of the Pontifex some wondered if the gods themselves had turned their back on Marth's army, and humanity as a whole, but still they persevered...

His death was on me, since he would have died to a normal hit too.
I do wonder if he would have still been crit if I healed him beforehand.
We'll never know now.

8 hours ago, Eltosian Kadath said:

I was kinda excited to see Bantu being used in a run, but alas it seems he falls here. I guess this means you will be trying for the Naga gaiden chapter then (assuming you make it that far...)

This run will become boring once I get past the Camus chapter.
Then it'll just be warpskips all day, every day.
Unless luck fails me and Nagi misses Medeus once.
Though that would truly be a sour end.

8 hours ago, Eltosian Kadath said:

Finally some luck to turn things around. Before that crit I was starting to worry you wouldn't be able to take that hero down with some more sacrafices...

I did start to panic after Caesar missed, Roger or Sedgar could easily have died...

8 hours ago, Eltosian Kadath said:

I like the other generics better, this "Radd" is just not living up to the legacy of Ida and Zas

His stats don't really matter, since he's just a walking Staff.
I do miss the underdog story of Ida and Zas, though.

8 hours ago, Eltosian Kadath said:

Once again Shiida lives the boss counter on 1 (and gets a great level to boot).

Shiida really carries the run during chapters with cavalry and knights.
Her promotion should allow her to survive more than one hit now.

5 hours ago, The Roger The Paladin said:

I feel like I've lowkey been insulted.

Twice.

I take it that you like Roger?
I shall choose my words more carefully in the future.
Besides, he's contributing considerably due to his immense 15 base speed as a mercenary.

5 hours ago, The Roger The Paladin said:

Interesting. Our Shiida/Caeda basically have inverted strength and defense stats on promotion. I hope yours can serve you as well as mine has me. Though the fact we both made it this far with their aid kind of says something.

edit: No. Looking it up, I'm wrong. My one still has 12 def. Anyway, mine also had another 5 levels by then and a seraph robe, so take it with a grain of salt, as yours is definitely still quite solid, and has the potential to carry you to victory given adequate care and proper use of the wing spear.

I look forward to comparing our units in the future.
Hopefully, Shiida won't fall to any tactical mishaps.

5 hours ago, The Roger The Paladin said:

May Knorda market bring you improved fortune, or at least an opportunity to plan around anything where luck is a factor, and I will catch up on this thread when both our paths through Archanea intersect again.

There's one luck based thing on this map.
That accursed enemy sniper with a Killer Bow.
Besides that, I'll be able to prepare well enough.
I shall take a look at your playthrough after I finish today's update.
 

Chapter 11 is upon us.
Knorda Market, the area close to Akaneia Palace.
There have been rumors of human trafficking in the nearby town.


Malledus advises us to intervene if we're able, then demand compensation for our troubles.
Nyna slapped him down.
We'll be doing our best to reach the village in time.

Current death count: 22

Chapter 11

This chapter will be somewhat challenging.
Luckily, there are no reinforcements.
Just two annoying fliers who'll harass us at the start and some ballisticians.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6800.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27003.png

Maria got her wish and was reclassed to a combat unit.
Her defense is suprisingly high for an archer.
Her speed is terrible, though.
She will help us deal with one of the fliers at the start.
How, you may ask?

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32266.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19161.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22950.png

Witness the "Zas"!
A forged bow made specifically to 1-hit KO the flyers on her counterattack.
Forges can really make anyone useful, heh.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20358.png

The bench is empty for this chapter.
That means that it's finally Vyland's time to shine.
Clearly.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16699.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__908.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__508.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21363.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25061.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12923.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32675.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__864.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32444.png

Witnessing the death of her parents must have traumatized her...
Of course, Nyna has it more than rough.
We'll bring her home.
Only for her to then continue to travel with us, leaving the palace unguarded again.
Hm.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24670.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18949.png

Hardin got an Iron Lance from the convoy.
Everyone moved to the right on the first turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1117.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18079.png

Maria and Caesar both wait in the range of a different pegasus knight.
They should kill them on their counter.
Unless they miss, of course.
Maria kind of looks like a reincarnated Zas, doesn't she?

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26215.png

Shiida and Minerva are moving up to intercept the thief.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25626.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25041.png

Targets defeated.
This'll probably the only real thing Maria accomplishes during this chapter.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6765.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22727.png

Radd healed is best bud, Gordin healed our former cleric.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11486.png

Everyone advances.
Slowly.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27673.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__281.png

The thief was taken out by the combined efforts of Shiida and Minerva.
I'm hoping to get Minerva to C Rank in Lances eventually.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31347.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5122.png

Maria and Caesar were both healed back to full health.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27249.png

Sedgar attracts the upcoming mercenary.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8705.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7720.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1761.png

Vyland the valiant made the first move by throwing a Javelin at the mercenary.
Coyote did the same, bringing him in range for Rickard to exact vengeance on.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9240.png

Roger is in position to lure another mercenary.
All is going according to plan.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14715.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6316.png

Shiida just doubles the mercenary like it's no trouble at all.
Maria finishes him off with Zas and gains a level.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10679.png

Maria, the skillfull, swift and lucky.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1199.png

Everyone gathers above the town, preparing the lure the remaining mercenaries in a few turns.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15281.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10328.png

Roger was healed back to full HP by Gordin and Radd.
Gordin seems to be lost in thoughts sometimes.
Thinking back to the first chapter.
Only Marth, Shiida and him are left from those days.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12557.png

Shiida plans to lure the mercenaries.
If one moves, they'll all move.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24546.png

Caesar goes for the kill and misses.
Why is it always you who misses, Caesar?

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6576.png

Shiida cleaned his mess.
She's bulky enough to be able to survive another hit from them due to her promotion.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30163.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28536.png

Sedgar is aided by our two healers.
There are whispers that the two healing men have started to worship a false deity.
Rumors are just rumors, though.
Or are they?

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6219.png

We formed a nice wall, everyone should survive.
Unless they get hit with a 3% crit or something.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23739.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27523.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11667.png

Vyland the valuable threw a Javelin.
Caesar harmed the mercenary, opening the way for Rickard to extinguish yet another life.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3045.png

He grows stronger.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5595.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4586.png

Shiida and Sedgar defeated the middle mercenary.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30171.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4063.png

Hardin and Minerva teamed up to take the remaining mercenary out.
Sadly, Minerva missed.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17855.png

We could originally end up losing Roger or Minerva.
Malledus commanded Bord to stand in range, since he's expendable at this point in our journey.

Another turn ends, who shall fall?

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22537.png

The mercenary took the bait.
Bord is no more.
He'll be remembered for his biggest contributions to our cause.
Giving a free Hammer to Minerva and dying instead of her.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1626.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2318.png

Sedgar recieved healing from Radd and a pamphlet about the church of Ida.
Saint Ida granted his wish for better health.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24684.png

Caesar missed again.
He doesn't really seem like himself today.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25235.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3911.png

Hardin and Sedgar finished the job.
Sedgar is also in range to lure the final mercenary to us.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19424.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31079.png

Shiida was healed by Gordin, he didn't give a pamphlet like Radd.
No blessings for Gordin.
He did gain a B Rank in Staves, though.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1159.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12025.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30561.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1379.png

Minerva entered Anna's house uninvited and smashed a few pots looking for gold.
Radd told her to do that, at least.
Anna wasn't too pleased and charged Minerva with a hefty fine while sharing some sage advice with her about how to recruit Jake.
She subtly implied that Minerva just didn't have the looks to recruit him.
 

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10848.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__77.png

Caesar confided to Rickard that he's worried about Radd.
He hasn't been the same since he started worshipping the late Ida as some kind of deity.
Honestly, they had barely even met the guy before he bit the dust.
Nothing holy about that, he reckons.
Apparantly, Ida was a rising star before he died.
Growing faster when no one thought he could.
But that's hogwash.
Rickard just nodded at him, mentioning that those tales about him were greatly exaggerated.
They both felt at ease after this talk, with Caesar landing his shot and Rickard increasing his kill count.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23049.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31679.png

Both Radd and Gordin shoved a pamphlet into Sedgar's hand.
They even threatened to not heal him unless he converted to Ida-ism.
He reluctantly agreed.
Both healers were rambling about having some dark robes laying around that would suit him perfectly....

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1421.png

Marth barges into the village.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26696.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6360.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12623.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3104.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26365.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19622.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20575.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8394.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28593.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2484.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4597.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30471.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3134.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1414.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7255.png

Marth got a fist released into his face.
Jokes aside, Linde just joined our group.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1942.png

Linde is on the slow side in this game.
She'll do some hefty chip damage with her Aura tome, though.
Think of her as Bantu if he could attack at range.

Her bases
18 HP
0 Str
2 Mag
4 Skill
7 Spd
7 Lck
3 Def
4 Res

She comes with a D Rank in Tomes, allowing her to use Fire and Thunder.
Also Aura, though all female magic users can eventually wield it.

Her growths
40% HP
0% Str
50% Mag
40% Skill
35% Spd
60% Lck
0% Def
15% Res

I've never really used Linde.
Her village is usually compromised during my Iron Man playthroughs.
She can do some nice chip damage, I suppose.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20405.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20213.png

Minerva got some pamphlets to join the church of Ida.
She said that she'll think of it.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10957.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10540.png

Roger gets some free healing from our two cultists, I mean, curates.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23623.png

Everyone heads up.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19584.png

We're going to break another weapon in a bit.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25256.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8553.png

Radd is going to face the Thunderbolt for 10 turns while getting healing from Gordin.
Gordin would take no damage from the weapon, but we want that juicy healing experience.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__102.png

Radd decides to move out of the way, making room for a target who'll take more damage.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29923.png

Radd strong.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31107.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16907.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12071.png

He reached a C Rank in Staves.
It took 10 turns to drain the Thunderbolt.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30187.png

It took one turn of walking, but Roger now waits in range of the enemy horseman.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4297.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26210.png

I wanted to give Sedgar a level, but he missed.
Shiida got the kill instead.

We'll be luring the sniper with the Killer Bow on the next turn.
We'll have to pray to Ida, I mean, the RNG gods to not get crit.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22507.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15752.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27256.png

He got some last-minute healing and placed himself on the fort.
He has a lot of resolve, if nothing else.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25860.png

Roger survived.
We can't actually kill the sniper without putting either Shiida or Minerva in range of the Arrowspate.
So...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24894.png

Sedgar will choke the point.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6436.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23332.png

Roger was healed after.
He already moved, and everyone else would die if they tried to choke the point.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18881.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19199.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24371.png

Sedgar was healed and Roger took his place.
This is going nowhere, I'll retreat during the next turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7486.png

Our luck ran out, I'm sorry Roger.
You showed some real promise.
We'll avenge you.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27609.png

We tempt fate once more.
Looking back at this, I should have just retreated out of his range.
I hope that I won't lose Sedgar over this.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15298.png

Our light is fading...
Sedgar has fallen.
His sacrifice won't be in vain.
I hope...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22283.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27030.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13421.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32114.png

Both Vyland and Darros miss.
Rickard and Marth will slowly slash this fiendish sniper to death.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21238.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31007.png

Rickard slashed the guy and gained a D Rank in Swords.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10548.png

Darros went into a sudden frenzy and used the Devil Axe.
Never punished.
I mean, it did not backfire.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11579.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12422.png

We gave the kill to Vyland the fabulous.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21490.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3951.png

Shiida and Minerva tried to clear the way, but the unarmed Ballistician survived.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8870.png

Everyone is moving again.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13097.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4502.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15135.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20998.png

Minerva, Shiida, Darros and Caesar worked together to take this guy out.
It seems that Darros is blessed by the Devil Axe, he eludes yet another backfire.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27901.png

Caesar is getting faster.
Wahoo.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28287.png

Minerva waits here to attract a shot from the stonehoist.
I vaguely remember that this will cause the cavaliers to start moving.
Either that, or we need to activate one to activate them all.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24181.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10726.png

They all activate when one attacks you.
Minerva got some free healthcare.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11796.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23252.png

Gordin was especially thankful for these bountiful blessings.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28042.png

There's no real way to trigger these guys without a major chance of death...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19670.png

I have a plan.
Shiida will lure one of the cavaliers on the next turn using the top route.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4317.png

She's in position, all should go well.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26230.png

She got a good level while luring the guy, yes.
But...That wasn't the guy who I expected to attack her.
Wait...No....Please....

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27216.png

This is the end of an era.
Good news for shippers who want Marth and Nyna to get together, though.
Oof, also, RIP recruiting Jake.
I'll manage somehow.
Though, this is a devastating blow...
Goodbye Shiida, you helped me remember just how good the Wing Spear was.
Thank you for all the good times.
Rest easy now, we'll reach the end, no matter what.
I promise.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21445.png

We might activate our emergency plan.
Everyone is in position for a warp skip.
Darros and Caesar choke the point.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28555.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11837.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11465.png

Darros made room for Minerva.
Minerva and Linde defeated the only Javelin cavalier.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28462.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25622.png

Healing as usual.
Everyone is uneasy after Shiida's death.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11909.png

I attacked the cavalier with Linde while using Marth to choke the point with his Rapier.
He can't die.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31606.png

Caesar was healed by Radd.
He got a pamphlet for the church of Ida.
Needless to say, he wasn't happy.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22745.png

Marth ran from the fort, getting healing from Gordin.
He really seems about ready to give up.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22843.png

Maria demonstrated her fighting spirit and defeated the cavalier.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7913.png

Minerva flew into the range of the Stonehoist Ballistician.
She'll reach a safe tile on the next turn.

Minerva dodged the Stonehoist shot and took three turns to take this Ballistician down.

So close, yet so far away.
At least we can get Beck later.
Also RIP Arrowspate.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7716.png

Everyone heads over to the gate.
I honestly don't think that we can defeat the boss manakete.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17412.png

More walking.
Probably RIP Energy Drop.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32178.png

Just a little longer...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8426.png

He'll hopefully hit on the counter.
I checked the Manakete boss, we're just short of chipping him to death.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4072.png

Hardin got a level.
The gate is free.
We'll actually be able to get the energy drop if Hardin chips too.
I'll seize immediatly if someone misses.

Hardin missed.
We're going to run.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28653.png

We made it...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32027.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17292.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1658.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6749.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10847.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12874.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25059.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28538.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23101.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25932.png

Sorry Nyna, but we'll only be rescuing 2 of the 5 prisoners.
Also, nice foreshadowing, Marth.
The reinforcements in the coming chapter are absolutely dreadful.

All that aside, we somehow reached the end alive.
Though, certainly not without bloodshed.

Our death counter has gone up to 27.
Rest in peace, Bord, Roger, Sedgar, Shiida and Jake.

Thank you for all your hard work.

It must be quite amusing to follow this trainwreck of a screenshot let's play.
Still, no matter how badly things go...
I will reach the end.

This chapter went quite a bit differently than it usually goes for me during my runs.
Still, I had fun.
I look forward to tomorrow.

We'll be taking the Milennium Court tomorrow.
Many chests to open.
Many reinforcements to defeat.
All will be well.

See you again in tomorrow's update.

Only one response appropriate enough to sum up both of these:

Also, if I had to rate how screwed you are on a scale of 1 to 10, I'd say 13. As in, chapter 13 is likely going to be your end after these losses.

Targets defeated.
This'll probably the only real thing Maria accomplishes during this chapter.

It is a solid accomplishment for someone that has never wielded a weapon before in her life

Vyland the valiant made the first move by throwing a Javelin at the mercenary.
Coyote did the same, bringing him in range for Rickard to exact vengeance on.

With Sedgar drawing him in, the remains of the Wolfguard all worked together to take this guy down (with the aid of Rickard's vengeance)

Maria, the skillfull, swift and lucky.

I guess she heard you complaining about her speed...

We could originally end up losing Roger or Minerva.
Malledus commanded Bord to stand in range, since he's expendable at this point in our journey.

Another turn ends, who shall fall?

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22537.png

The mercenary took the bait.
Bord is no more.
He'll be remembered for his biggest contributions to our cause.
Giving a free Hammer to Minerva and dying instead of her.

Poor Bord, but without the triangle attack he gets next game, that probably is the most he could contribute.

Anna wasn't too pleased and charged Minerva with a hefty fine while sharing some sage advice with her about how to recruit Jake.
She subtly implied that Minerva just didn't have the looks to recruit him.

Wow, what a B----, basically telling Minerva she isn't pretty to her face...

He reluctantly agreed.
Both healers were rambling about having some dark robes laying around that would suit him perfectly....

I've never really used Linde.
Her village is usually compromised during my Iron Man playthroughs.

Seems like a good recruit to me, as you are in desperate need of some magic after every tome wielder died last chapter...

Darros went into a sudden frenzy and used the Devil Axe.
Never punished.
I mean, it did not backfire.

It seems that Darros is blessed by the Devil Axe, he eludes yet another backfire.

You really like to play dangerously don't you (although I suppose the only risk of death would be a crit backfire on that one...)

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27216.png

This is the end of an era.
Good news for shippers who want Marth and Nyna to get together, though.

Now the only promoted unit left is Minerva...Yikes you are really running out of usable allies.

Well done, although your army is really depleted at this point. Hopefully you can save enough of the prison gang next chapter to help round out the ranks, but both Sedgar and Shiida are good enough that they are hard to replace.

The Wooden Cavalry will be the most difficult?
Chapter 12 will be harder due to all the super strong reinforcements.

He'll be our savior, somehow.
Risking his own life by wielding the Devil Axe.

I'll at least be able to save the two that matter the most.
I think.
I hope.

We have infiltrated the Millenium Court now that chapter 12 is upon us.
The palace is filled with treasures and prisoners alike, will we be able to save them all?

Nyna really wants her palace back, so we'll try not to fail when we're so close to reaching her goal.
Our chance of failure is high, be ready for a rapid end to our adventure.

I do like the backstory which we get to learn due to the chapter introductions.
Also, conspiracy theory time.
You remember the Hauteclere, right?
It also has the effect of a vulnerary when used.
Wrys was turned into a Vulnerary in FE3.
Hauteclere = weaponized vulnerary Wrys?
I'm just joking.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19059.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12523.png

I gave Caesar the Speedwing to facilitate a strategy.
We'll still have to run like mad, though.
Minerva got the Goddess Icon to hopefully avoid any crits.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32170.png

Our final formation, the bench remains vacant.
Believe it or not, I actually planned ahead for this chapter.
So, we should get through this with minimal casualties.
Hopefully, maybe.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21222.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4714.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6513.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20952.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9635.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17137.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12776.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7567.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18790.png

What you see is what you get.
I used to think that Midia was just a very flamboyant man.
Most of the prisoners are doomed, though.

I did have a strategy in mind to save them all, but I just don't have the manpower for it.
Well, unless I do something crazy like warping Darros in there to KO the mage.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28712.png

This is Dolph, a big man.
He wears armor.
I've literally never used him, so I have no fun stories to tell about this guy.
Maybe he's a gentle giant?

His bases
22 HP
8 Str
0 Mag
6 Skill
5 Spd
3 Lck
13 Def
0 Res

His stats are decent enough, I suppose.
His base C Rank in Lances does give him some extra value, though.
Ridersbane at base.

His growths
70% HP
30% Str
0% Mag
40% Skill
30% Spd
10% Lck
45% Def

He seems like quite an unlucky guy.
I really don't know what to say.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22785.png

Macellan, probably Dolph's twin brother or something.
He probably has a lot of pent up anger for being the inferior one.

His bases
20 HP
8 Str
0 Mag
5 Skill
3 Spd
4 Lck
12 Def
0 Res

He comes with a D Rank in Lances, which gives him access to Javelins.
I'll find a use for him if he survives.

His growths
60% HP
35% Strength
0% Mag
25% Skill
25% Spd
30% Lck
30% Def

I'd make him a sorcerer if he makes it through this mess.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13132.png

I've used Tomas once before.
I reclassed him to a cavalier because all my green haired units ended up being really good.
That was the run with a fantastic Paladin Merric.
Tomas underperformed.

His bases
22 HP
7 Str
0 Mag
6 Skill
5 Spd

Nyna's royal guard is filled with sub-par units.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8531.png

Midia, the survivor.
I've tried making her a Jagen replacement.
It didn't go well.

Her bases
24 HP
7 Str
1 Mag
11 Skill
9 Spd
7 Lck

She also comes with a D Rank in Swords and a C Rank in Lances.

30% Str
0% Mag
50% Skill

She has some decent growths for a pre-promote.
Will she be the hero we need?

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28215.png

I always end up using Boah.
He's a very good utility unit, if nothing else.

His bases
22 HP
1 Str
4 Mag
7 Skill
10 Spd

He comes with a B Rank in Tomes and a C Rank in Staves.

20% Mag
20% Skill
20% Spd
20% Lck

30% Res

His growths aren't anything special, but his bases will carry us in the chapters to come.
He'll be able to oneshot Dracoknights with Excalibur if reclassed to a Sage, I believe.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22929.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7332.png

Linde and Vyland will work together to get the Warp Staff.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4727.png

Well then...
RIP Vyland.
Ended by an unlucky miss.
This is not the best start to the chapter.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8623.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7775.png

Rickard didn't really know Vyland too well, so he didn't even waste his Vengeance on this hapless thief.
He acquired the Warp Staff.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14643.png

Caesar missed.
This thief may keep his life, since the Armorslayer isn't worth it.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11356.png

Minerva will be the one who'll deal with the knights.
It's Hammer time.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2949.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2184.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13497.png

Maria decided that she wanted to help the prisoners.
She took the Warp Staff from the convoy and gave it to Gordin.
Gordin warped Hardin all the way over to the prison.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11882.png

He has just enough speed to double.
The mage is no more.
The knight below him shouldn't move, unless I'm remembering things wrong.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20155.png

All the prisoners squished themselves into the left side of the cell.
This will hopefully keep the archers from moving.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27916.png

Everyone is sprinting towards the cells.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24054.png

Minerva hammered the knight and gained a level.
She's hearing some odd whispers in her head...
She shakes them off, thinking nothing of them.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2710.png

Gordin heals the princess of Medon.
He asks her about the whispers.
The whispers of Ida...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7632.png

Minerva flew off to defeat another knight.
It's a thing only she can do for now.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4926.png

Everyone is still sprinting towards the prison.
We need to get there before the reinforcements arrive.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30289.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20728.png

The thief desired more treasure, a foolish choice.
Maria and Rickard made him leave this realm.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2964.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14717.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7734.png

Gordin heals Minerva with his psychic abilities.
She destroys the final knight after Gordin's assist.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19869.png

Marth has almost arrived.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31728.png

Caesar lures one of the archers.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27625.png

Hardin gets healed in order to deal with one of the mages approaching from the south.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31174.png

The reinforcements have spawned and the secondary boss started moving, we have to hurry.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27250.png

Minerva took care of the lower mage, killing him in one hit.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15900.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25987.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3532.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26723.png

Darros and Maria worked together to defeat the wounded archer.
Maria decided to show off and crit him.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4469.png

Hardin was healed to take the other mage out.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4652.png

Marth took a Levin Sword from the convoy and equipped Darros with a Hand Axe.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26867.png

I didn't plan for this.
This mage has two more speed than the other one.
If only I'd checked their stats beforehand....

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13253.png

I decided to block him off, keeping Maria and Rickard safe.
Maria may lose her sister.
And I may lose our last hope...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6156.png

He went for Linde instead.
May she rest in peace.
At least Minerva yet lives.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18035.png

Minerva gave this fool a painful death.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27959.png

Her wounds are being mended for our strategy later.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22513.png

Caesar is vital to this part too.
He needs to survive the horsemen.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23519.png

We'll be doing our best to clean up this mess.
Marth will block this archer.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8241.png

Darros, the man o' the sea is fearless.
Once more, he takes up the cursed Devil Axe to protect his comrades.
He is aware that he may perish if it backfires now, still, he persists.
Once more, he is spared.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19866.png

The run could have ended after one unlucky miss.
That did not happen, though.
Marth shocked this fool into oblivion!

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22066.png

Caesar is ready to what he must.
We'll be in need of a lot of healers.
Luckily, Boah is available too.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18978.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17560.png

Hardin needed to hit this attack, which he did.
Sadly, his life will most certainly end on the following turn.
His sacrifice will buy our victory.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5144.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25570.png

One last level for our the final member of the Wolfguard.
Rest in peace.
Marth x Nyna is going to happen now.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2262.png

The prisoners are freed.
Wooo!

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12147.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17372.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21455.png

Caesar and Minerva recieved healing from everyone, including Boah.
We'll block them all, I swear it.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19101.png

Maria will chip the boss for free experience and a Master Seal.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1967.png

Minerva was aided by the old Bishop, Boah.
She'll be tanking for a while yet.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27572.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12004.png

Radd healed his good friend and was rewarded for his efforts by Ida.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5325.png

Gordin healed him too.
He wishes to contribute even though he's currently unable to grow.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7451.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15555.png

Caesar defeats the horseman in the just in time.
He grows.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16389.png

Maria does the same, she's really looking forward to winning that Master Seal.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11203.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29548.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31094.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5946.png

It's really just the same as our last turn.
I'll update again when something new happens.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6522.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32388.png

Caesar got another level on the following turn.
He also reached a C Rank in Bows.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20665.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18448.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__604.png

She seems to be getting speed on every level.
She'll become a good unit at this rate.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29684.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31082.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26428.png

All horsemen have been eliminated.
Caesar reached level 10 and the prison is still blocked.
Phew.
I'll only be updating when something interesting happens.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21951.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8717.png

Meet bishop Gordin.
We'll be relying on him a lot.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2946.png

Radd also got a level.
Strong curate.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23604.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6753.png

We're not going to wait any longer, let's clear these fools out!
Also, Darros coming in clutch with that speed proc despite his 10% growth.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2242.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21973.png

We healed Minerva for the next round.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11556.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5647.png

Gordin and Minerva defeated a cavalier together.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20341.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17600.png

Minerva was prepared for the coming enemy phase.
I'll get back after all these cavaliers are cleared out.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18076.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2369.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24661.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22276.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13411.png

Everyone got some fantastic levels out of this.
Minerva's level was very respectable.
Boah is defying his own growths.
Maria clearly wants to become a speed demon.
And Rickard defied all odds and got a fantastic level, even getting his 2% Res growth to come through.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30830.png

It took a long time, but here we are!
Safety!

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30343.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16771.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25834.png

Maria was healed.
Midia got some items from the convoy and everyone is heading towards the treasure room.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12566.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7963.png

Radd is spreading more pamphlets to our new recruits.
The word of saint Ida must be heard!

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15452.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20955.png

Gordin thanked his lord and savior Ida for protecting Minerva from death.
She wasn't too pleased with having her accomplishments ignored in favor of false belief, so she flew off.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8198.png

Rickard opened the door and Darros was healed.
Gordin tried to convert him, but Darros already worships the Devil Axe.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17983.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11096.png

Boah retrieved the legendary Excalibur tome, it being dormant no more.
Gordin persisted, but failed to sway Darros.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5876.png

Our holy bishop, Gordin, was healed by his student, Radd.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23768.png

Midia throws a Javelin to trigger this guy into moving.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9394.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9605.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27414.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3769.png

Tomas wanted to make himself useful, so he's going to fetch the boots for us on the next turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8572.png

Midia succeeded in luring the general.
Minerva hammered him to pieces.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8224.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12185.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3695.png

Tomas got the Boots, Marth a Large Bullion and Rickard a Master Seal.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31709.png

Radd healed Midia as a thank-you for luring the general.
I'm contemplating if I should promote Caesar immediatly.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16568.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2531.png

Rickard acquired an Arms Scroll.
Minerva recieved healing.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27034.png

Caesar murdered a curate and got into position to take the sniper on.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20867.png

Caesar got another level, he's becoming much better than I expected he would.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6801.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15161.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11065.png

Rickard opened the door, allowing Minerva to swoop in and wound the sniper.
Caesar took him out.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21759.png

Maria helped her sister equip the a proper weapon to counter the boss with.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23367.png

Minerva missed.
She did feel the burn, though.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10964.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3441.png

Marth and Rickard got the two remaining treasures.
Marth does seem to enjoy stealing.
He already has a backup plan in mind for if he fails to save the world.
He'll just go around stealing from Doluna with his 'ol pal Rickard.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18554.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10931.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22072.png

Caesar was healed for his upcoming fight with the boss.
Gordin got a level.
Speed.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30858.png

Boah traded with Gordin and healed Minerva.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4260.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16914.png

Radd healed Caesar.
He tried to convert him, but Caesar slapped him in the face.
Radd seemed more lucid after that, not even remembering all the "Church of Ida" nonsense.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7105.png

Boah healed Minerva to prepare her for the boss.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29499.png

Caesar will counter the boss with his Iron Bow.
The curate next to him won't heal him because he will still have more than 50% of his HP left.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29678.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32356.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4991.png

All went as planned, no unlucky misses this time.
Doluna is undying?
This run is undying!

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26663.png

We're leaving this guy be, he's not even as threatening as Manaketes later in the game, but it's simply unwise to face this one.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23033.png

Marth seizes, ending this chapter.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29203.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27204.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25767.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8014.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14805.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29434.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13514.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20815.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6355.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25146.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__154.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26222.png

You do speak the truth, Marth.
The Akaneian League fought hard to get here.
Many have fallen...
We've finally freed Akaneia.
Nyna rewards us with some weaponized Pure Water, also known as the Parthia.
No one can use it yet, though.

Our death counter has reached 30.

Rest in peace, Vyland, Linde and Hardin

We've made it, somehow.
I am happy with this result.
Sure, it could have gone better, but we're still here.

Tomorrow's update will be about chapter 12x
See you then.

Do you have a plan for chapter 13 then? Because I'm not sure the Thunderbolt can one-hit the ballisticians.

I decided to block him off, keeping Maria and Rickard safe.
Maria may lose her sister.

Once more, he is spared.

Hardin needed to hit this attack, which he did.
Sadly, his life will most certainly end on the following turn.
His sacrifice will buy our victory.

Oof. Hardin dies a hero, before living long enough to become the villain. Wow every wielder of the Rider's Bane you had died didn't they. I guess it will have to go to one of the new recruits...

Caesar got another level on the following turn.
He also reached a C Rank in Bows.

I guess giving Caesar those speed wings is really paying off. I was skeptical of him for a while, but he is really coming in the clutch at this point.

Oh a gaiden chapter. This should be a bit of a breather, as the difficulty scaling is noticeably less extreme in them. Good luck avoid Horace long enough to recruit him.

My strategy would have failed without him.
He needed the Speedwing to avoid getting doubled by the horsemen.
That way, the 1-range cavalry would swarm the chokepoint while Caesar defeated all the horsemen just in time.
Hardin secured our victory by defeating that first horseman, we would have been in trouble if he missed.

Horace and his group don't move.
They'll only attack if you stand next to them.
This map does have one weird quirk, though.
There's a fort on the map which spawns reinforcements.
However, that tile is actually outside of the map, it's onscreen, but no one can traverse it.

We've arrived at chapter 12x.
One of Shadow Dragon's infamous Gaiden chapters.
We're pursuing a general who defected.

This general is named Horace.
We'll be recruiting him at the end of the chapter if all goes well.

Our first Gaiden chapter.
It'll be a bit of a breather compared to other chapters.
I'm not expecting any casualties here.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9155.png

This fort to the right can't be traversed.
Yet reinforcements will spawn from there for some reason.
I once lost someone because of that.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10177.png

Macellan's malice has been building for years.
He isn't going to be inferior to Dolph anymore.
He joined the dark side and will use the arcane arts show everyone his worth!

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5046.png

Marth got some new boots.
I might feed him some kills to better prepare him for the coming chapters.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32256.png

We sold the Large Bullion and did some shopping.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13011.png

This is our final formation.
Tomas guards the bench alone.
Well, technically not alone.
Malledus and Nyna keep the guy company.

Horace won't be a threat on this map.
Also, is that other guy also called Dejanira in the American version?
That name is quite unique.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27201.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7876.png

Minerva lures one cavalier, Darros the other.

We should be able to walk into the range of Horace's units without any trouble.
We might even be able to wait next to them.
They'll leave us be if we play our cards right.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6130.png

Maria defeats the cavalier her sister wounded during the first enemy phase.
She's contributing to our cause.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7617.png

Minerva gets some healing from bishop Boah.
She must survive, for our sake.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19779.png

Caesar awaits an incoming mage, he'll defeat him even with just an Iron Bow.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1308.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12007.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4151.png

Darros, Macellan and Marth defeat the other cavalier.
Macellan is certainly enjoying his new powers, he should have picked up a tome ages ago.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6179.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25848.png

Darros is healed by Radd and Gordin.
They've really started to respect this man o' the sea.
Risking his very life time and time again to use that cursed axe for the good of us all.
They're just glad that he doesn't have to resort to that during this chapter.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22553.png

Everyone cautiously takes the route to the right.
They'll be evading the majority of Horace's army that way.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7050.png

Caesar really showed this mage who's boss.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15786.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2336.png

Caesar is healed by his good friend and the Akaneian bishop.

Minerva lures the two cavaliers up north.
Everyone else continues to follow this path.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32755.png

Caesar takes the cavalier out.
He's really becoming one of our more reliable units.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3658.png

Minerva gets healed again by our friendly bishop Boah.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10844.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26771.png

Minerva gets ready to lure another cavalier.
Everyone else follows closely behind.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32663.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27331.png

Caesar takes two shots at the cavalier and gains a good level.
His speed will allow him to double most enemies for a while.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26884.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32164.png

Dolph tried his best to hit, but failed.
Maria took the kill instead.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25994.png

Gordin heals Minerva back to full health.

I thought that I could double this guy, but I've been bamboozled like last time.
Looking back, this was a very risky move.
Marth barely survives the enemy's counter.
He got slightly faster for his troubles.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10988.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18090.png

Darros took care of the wounded mage.
He gained another level, beating the odds and getting more speed.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20693.png

Caesar is healed back to full health by bishop Boah.
He's a healbot we can rely on.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21523.png

Marth's going to visit the village on the next turn.
Everyone is still relatively safe.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30540.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4149.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24939.png

Gordin and Boah help Marth back to his feet.
He looked death in the eyes and never wanted to do that ever again.
He entered the village to ask about the knight Horace.

Well, that was enlightening.
And we got a free Killer Lance out of it.
Everyone walked forward again.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5486.png

Marth was healed once more by the holy bishop of Ida, Gordin.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10685.png

Caesar is going to lure an archer while wounding him just enough for Maria to get a nice kill out of it.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21538.png

Everyone will advance once the archer is taken care of.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18346.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23255.png

The speed demon did not gain speed.
Still, having 10 defense on an archer is ridiculous.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17967.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2813.png

Caesar gets some healing from his good friend Radd and the holy Gordin.
He's been acting a little erratic lately...

We'll be reaching the boss soon enough.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20670.png

Everyone runs forward.
The people in range of the knight have unequipped their weapons just in case.
A lone pirate reinforcement runs up to us from the back.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5382.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4881.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32506.png

Caesar plans to lure the sniper.
He gets healing support from our two bishops.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29969.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24968.png

Minerva flew up north to make more room in the safezone.
Everyone is waiting for the next turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31582.png

A lot of pirate reinforcements appeared.
We're changing the plan.
This chapter will end on this turn.
We'll skip the second village.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28122.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32094.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25880.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18828.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28155.png

Boah, Minerva and Caesar defeated the boss.
We won't end the chapter just yet, though.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23866.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17415.png

Darros and Rickard defeated this sniper for some juicy EXP.

"No more?"
All your soldiers survived, you fool.
Be more thankful.

Nyna, you too?
All his soldiers survived this ordeal thanks to our masterful tactician, Malledus!
That aside, Horace does indeed need to show a traitor's worth.
Nyna is quite good with words when she needs to be.
She has his life, so he has no say.
I do wonder if he can actually keep his promise of not dying, our track record with promoted units is quite poor after all.

Well then, we made it without any deaths this time.
Hopefully, we can keep this up.

That concludes chapter 12x.
This was a nice chapter to relax in, being a bit lower in difficulty.

We'll be facing the Wooden Cavalry in the next chapter.
Will we survive the shots raining from the sky?

You'll see it all in tomorrow's update.

Macellan's malice has been building for years.
He isn't going to be inferior to Dolph anymore.
He joined the dark side and will use the arcane arts show everyone his worth!

Arise Darth Macellan, and let the hate flow through you .

As far as I can tell this name is the same in both regions.

Macellan is certainly enjoying his new powers, he should have picked up a tome ages ago.

Using that force lightning already I see.

My first instinct is to be surprised that you are fleeing from the weaker enemies of the gaiden, but on further reflection, after all that death, this better safe then sorry mentality is probably warranted.

They really made Horace an interesting character with the story if this gaiden. Too bad you rarely see him on a regular run.

He's already getting more use than in all of my other runs combined right now.

I've never actually attacked Horace's soldiers.
Maybe it's out of fear of all of them spontaniously moving when attacked?

He does have more dialogue and development than the other gaiden characters.
I'll try to keep him alive.

We have reached chapter 13 after clearing our first gaiden chapter.
Ammunition will rain from the sky, threatening our meager army.
Will we survive?

If all goes well, then we'll be adding two new members to our army.
One ballistician and one hero.

This will be one of the more unique chapters in the series.
Still, we won't really be in too much trouble.
We're facing mostly ballisticians and two thieves.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31712.png

This is Horace.
He joined us at the end of chapter 12x.
It's possible to miss out on him if you don't get the gaiden chapter or kill him during it.

His bases
32 HP
15 Str
1 Mag
12 Skill
8 Spd
7 Lck
17 Def
3 Res

He also comes with a B rank in lances and a D rank in bows.
Honestly, his bases are quite fantastic when compared to everyone else in our army.
He can also use the forged Ridersbane and the Silver Lance fine.
And look at that base strength!
He's just what we needed.

His growths
60% HP
15% Str
0% Mag
35% Skill
10% Spd
15% Lck
35% Def
0% Res

His growths aren't anything special.
But he'll pull through for us.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26990.png

We'll be taking it somewhat slow during this chapter.
No one is on the bench today.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26899.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1384.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16914.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27846.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18816.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24573.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3319.png

Nyna is right to be worried, you know?
One would easily get overwhelmed if they approach this chapter without taking the proper measures.
I recall that some ballisticians won't attack when you're in range.
I'll deal with the two moving ballisticians first, then slowly defeat everyone else.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4460.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3031.png

Dolph will lure the moving Arrowspate guy.
Horace will take care of the moving Stonehoist guy.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3520.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9046.png

Horace and Boah lure the moving guys just a little closer...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28031.png

Boah defeated one of the moving ballisticians.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24436.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1205.png

Caesar and Horace defeated the other one.
Caesar might be in a bit of a precarious position, depending on if I remember the AI correctly or not.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7748.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1421.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1023.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15154.png

Both Gordin and Radd used their psychic abilities to heal Boah from far away.
Radd reached a B Rank in Staves.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20399.png

Everyone advances carefully.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12008.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6755.png

I was correct, some of the stationary ballisticians won't attack.
Boah defeated the last ballistician on top and gained more speed and res.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21756.png

I decided to block the village, moving everyone out of range of the thieves as a precaution.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23978.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8540.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8838.png

Caesar chips the thief for Marth to take out.
I know, it's still a risky move to use Marth for combat, but I kind of have to.
I haven't really paid much attention to it, but Caesar really is starting to have a lot of HP.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18934.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25545.png

Horace and Minerva defeated the remaining thief.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29468.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18224.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15227.png

Dolph was healed by both Radd and Gordin.
Gordin is acting a little strange, though.
He wants to be referred to as Ida nowadays.
Radd suspects that Gordin may be possessed...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26870.png

We'll be getting Beck on the next turn.
He'll make it a lot easier to deal with the remaining ballisticians.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28062.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29646.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12917.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6597.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30007.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32048.png

Marth recruits Beck.
He comes with the Thunderbolt, which is immediatly useful.
He mentions being a part of the battle of Castle Deil, the Maria and Minerva chapter.
We didn't see him there, though.
Then again, we don't know.
Maybe he's just some maniac who wished to join up with Marth to give his homemade ballista a spin?

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27405.png

He does a lot of damage with it.
We'll be forging it in the future.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21007.png

This is Beck, our first and only ballistician.
We're not counting Jake, since we were unable to recruit him.

His bases
20 HP
6 Str
0 Mag
4 Skill
3 Spd
5 Lck
14 Def
0 Res

Honestly, his stats don't even matter that much.
Just strength and magic do.
Strength for normal weapons and magic for the Thunderbolt.
He also has very high defense for some reason.
Though, you really shouldn't be putting him in harm's way to begin with.

His growths
60% HP
25% Str
0% Mag
30% Skill
40% Spd
35% Lck
25% Def
0% Res

His growths exist.
By the way, can ballisticians double?
I've never seen them accomplish that, at least.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1390.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__912.png

Minerva gets healing from Radd and green Ida.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3099.png

Horace waits in range of Astram.
We'll be recruiting him on the next turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18069.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17421.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2400.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29408.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29157.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19064.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26439.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26359.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18562.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6462.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16742.png

The two lovers are reunited.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19081.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30783.png

Horace recieves aid from our one and only Ida Gordin.
He defeats the wounded ballistician.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27118.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25055.png

Beck wounded another ballistician while Minerva flew down.
She'll be taking care of the three ballisticians at the bottom for us.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6849.png

Marth is healed by the red legend, Radd.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14060.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21292.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7320.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21631.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25652.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29443.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8252.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4433.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__710.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4989.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22659.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28831.png

Astram is loyal to Nyna, yet he switched sides after Akaneia fell.
Isn't he basically in the same situation as Horace?
Except, his hand wasn't forced.
He already thought that Midia was killed, so he had nothing left to protect.
Unlike Horace, who was blackmailed.
It's just an interesting contrast.
Heads will roll, alright.
But it will probably be Astram's.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19635.png

Well then, here's Astram.
A hero.
He doesn't really do much for me during my runs.
He's decent.

His bases
26 HP
8 Str
1 Mag
14 Skill
14 Spd
3 Lck
8 Def
3 Res

His weapon ranks are quite good, coming with a B Rank in Swords and a D Rank in Axes.
He can use all swords except Mercurius at base.
He also has access to a decent 2-range option with Hand Axes.

His growths
90% HP
50% Str
0% Mag
40% Skill
20% Spd
50% Lck
10% Def
0% Res

His growths are suprisingly good.
Those 10% growths in speed and defense sting, though.

Luckily, his bases hold up against almost all of the normal enemies the game throws at us.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32113.png

Minerva decides to train her Lance Rank while slowly defeating the lower ballisticians.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17844.png

Beck defeats the wounded ballistician.
We'll just need to take the other one down too.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8485.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26391.png

Marth is healed by Radd.
Horace gets support from the bishop of Ida, who also wants to be called Ida.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28061.png

He's muttering something about how the Ida is not strong enough in him yet.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28008.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7846.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30972.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24564.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18576.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30687.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10619.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9529.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21177.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12475.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18724.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30413.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7823.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5317.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10913.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31942.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5024.png

If Akaneia's best knight is Astram, then it really is not suprising at all that they fell.
Anyhow, this talk conversation does provide some nice lore.
You'd have to wonder if Nyna was pressured into marrying...
Her tale really is tragic.

Technically, Marth would be the best choice for her.
Politically speaking.
Also, because Hardin is dead too.
Camus would be a fine choice too, but he's no king.
Besides, he'll be off exploring Valentia soon.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3554.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28309.png

Beck wounds another ballistician.
Strength is nice, I suppose.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31296.png

Minerva pokes the lower ballistician some more.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14691.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21312.png

Beck defeated his ballistician, Minerva hers.
I'll be clearing the lower ballisticians out with Minerva.
I'll update again once that's out of the way.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18122.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5112.png

Minerva took care of them and got another good level.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13177.png

Now we're going to break the enemy's Thunderbolt.
I'll only mention the interesting parts.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1162.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29836.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25879.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21298.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1374.png

Minerva barged into this place because she felt like it.
Luckily, she didn't get insulted this time.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1616.png

We're going a little farther into their range to get them to attack.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22091.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25171.png

Impatience got the best of me.
I realized my mistake too late.
The ballistician had to be defeated now, or else we would lose Beck.
So, Midia sacrificed herself to take the ballistician out.
Let's just say that Astram was not pleased with this decision.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11520.png

Well then...
We've decided to take a different approach.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6298.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2839.png

Horace is going to deplete the Boss's weapon.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7760.png

This is going to take a while.
Your cavalry still seems to be mostly wooden, Grigas.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7709.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31102.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__371.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23545.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29475.png

Radd gained 4 levels.
Boah gained one level and reached a B Rank in Staves.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32674.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20894.png

It took 25 turns to deplete his weapon.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27884.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16431.png

Beck and Minerva defeated the last Arrowspate user.
Only 3 enemies remain, of which only 1 can still attack.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3090.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30673.png

Marth pokes the curate while Minerva hits the ballistician.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9485.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28641.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27645.png

Minerva and Marth worked together to take him out.
Marth reached a B Rank in Swords for his trouble.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9548.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26155.png

Boah and Macellan damaged the boss.
Bishop Boah was shocked to see Macellan like that at first, he just never expected the guy to turn out like that.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15387.png

Everyone approaches the boss.
He must be nervous by now.
Getting surrounded while having no weapon at all.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5071.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22169.png

Boah and Macellan finished this guy off.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27958.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5730.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30213.png

He's the first boss who has three boxes of text for his defeat quote.
Wonderful.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7956.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32684.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28551.png

Rickard and Dolph defeated the final enemy on this map.
Dolph did actually hit this time.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15424.png

Marth seized the gate.
Tomas, Maria, and Darros wondered why they were even here, since they didn't get to do anything at all.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19883.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3413.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8838.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5784.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20195.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6704.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1710.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5426.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28699.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1197.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27906.png

Marth mentions that commoner no matter what.
Even if you don't visit that house.

This concludes chapter 13.
Only one casualty due to impatience.
Rest in peace, Midia.
Yet another promoted unit falls to the unseen curse.

This increases the death counter to 31.

That was chapter 13.
I think that we did well enough, especially compared to other chapters.

Chapter 14 is next.
Marth will finally get revenge on Gra for their betrayal.
I already have a plan in mind for that chapter.

Well then, see you all again tomorrow.

Caesar might be in a bit of a precarious position, depending on if I remember the AI correctly or not.

That is a serious gamble after how well Caesar has been turning out...

I was correct, some of the stationary ballisticians won't attack.

...but I guess it payed off. How strange, I wonder why some of them simply don't attack like that.

Caesar chips the thief for Marth to take out.
I know, it's still a risky move to use Marth for combat, but I kind of have to.

A bit worrying to see, but you have less than 1/2 a percent chance of death from that once you factor in true hit.

He also has very high defense for some reason.

I think its an old reference to what Ballisticians were in FE1, which were basically tanks, 2 range units with the base defense of a general.

Impatience got the best of me.
I realized my mistake too late.
The ballistician had to be defeated now, or else we would lose Beck.
So, Midia sacrificed herself to take the ballistician out.
Let's just say that Astram was not pleased with this decision.

Its made all the worse by seeing it as avoidable after the fact. One of thing that feels so different about Shadow Dragon from many of the other games in the series is how permanent actions are, you can't use the rescue command to drag someone out of range, or canto back to a safer position, it doesn't even have a dancer to let someone act again, or a rescue staff to really drag someone to safety.

This is going to take a while.

That is annoying to have to deal with. Hopefully there aren't too many more bosses you have to break weapons with before dealing with them.

It's probably a measure to keep the chapter from being too much of a pain.
Still, it has been a blessing for me.

My luck has been all over the place during this run.
Especially with Caesar missing near-guaranteed shots.

Really, they've been buffed massively, in that case.
They really only had 2-range back then?

The only thing we really have to correct mistakes with is the Warp Staff, but using that is far from ideal.

This should be the last one, I think.
There may still be some generic enemies who will have their weapons broken on the way, though.

We enter the land of betrayal in chapter 14.
Gra, our former ally, stabbed us in the back at the start of the game.
Now, it's our time to seek vengeance against them and their traitorous king, Jiol.

We'll be gaining two characters during this chapter.
There's a village, but it's not worth the effort to visit it.

Current death count: 31
Names of the fallen by chapter

Chapter 2: Draug and Castor.
Chapter 3: Cain, Lena, Julian and Abel.
Chapter 4: Ossa, Matthis and Merric.
Chapter 6: Wolf.
Chapter 8: Nabarl, Ida, Zas, Barst and Jagen.
Chapter 9: Jeorge, Wrys and Ogma.
Chapter 10: Cord, Roshea, Wendell and Bantu.
Chapter 11: Bord, Roger, Sedgar, Shiida and Jake.

Revenge for Marth at last.
Also, regarding former allies like Gra...
"Fire Emblem, trust nobody"

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30546.png

We're deploying everyone except Beck.
I have a strategy in mind for this chapter, so we shouldn't be losing anyone.
Hopefully.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30508.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27378.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15506.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27662.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12020.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30437.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7957.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20648.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32506.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9875.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25869.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25343.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29043.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20461.png

This is an example of reinforcements done right.
They're foreshadowed, so you know that they are on their way.
We'll be taking our time with this chapter.
I also have a plan to take care of the pegasus knights.
But we'll get to that later.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28398.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5129.png

Boah flexes his magical muscle and crits the ballistician.
Even the malicious Macellan is against wasting uses, so he helps Boah equip his Fire Tome for the coming enemy phase.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11140.png

Minerva flies straight down, hammering the knight with the forged Javelin.
The knight to the left can only attack her on the next turn, and she'll survive the hit just fine.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11868.png

Everyone else moves forward.
Rickard is in position to unlock the bridge on the next turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4396.png

Boah was healed by Radd.
He discussed the possibility of an excorcism to be performed on Gordin.
His possession seems to be progressing with each chapter, soon, there'll be no Gordin left.
Boah shook his head, saying that he needed some time to prepare for this.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4388.png

Caesar weakened the knight with the legendary Parthizas.
He did take quite a bit of damage in return, though.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6324.png

Darros, the man chosen by the Devil Axe, used it once more.
No backfire, the knight's armor was gruesomely dented after the strike.
Needless to say, Darros is a scary opponent to have.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10640.png

Rickard ran behind him to open the bridge.
Though, he helped the man o' the sea to equip a safer weapon first.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1673.png

Caesar was healed by the second coming of Ida.
He's grateful to be healed, sure.
But he can't help but feel uncomfortable in Gordin's presence.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28264.png

Astram lures the cavaliers on the right side.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29211.png

Everyone is awaiting the coming enemy phase.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19964.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31383.png

Minerva is healed from afar by the amazing Radd.
He gained a level.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5247.png

Astram took this cavalier out with one normal hit and a crit.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1616.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22066.png

Caesar and Macellan teamed up to defeat this knight.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2744.png

Macellan defies everyone's expectations by gaining a good level.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1048.png

Marth blocks this area, he won't die from one hit.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2258.png

Minerva wounds the cavalier for Marth to take out on the next turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18178.png

Astram was taken out by an archer.
It seems that I forgot to check their range...
Astram was right, heads will roll.
At least he can join Midia now.

The pre-promote curse demands sacrifices if I want to spare Minerva, apparantly.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2695.png

Darros threw a Hand Axe at the wounded cavalier.
He's practicing his throws for the axe throwing olympics.
Then again, the only other participant who would still be alive by then is Minerva.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23599.png

Minerva blocks both thieves while equipped with her Steel Lance.
She should be fine.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3903.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18402.png

Caesar was healed by his good friend, Radd.
Boah was healed by the erratic Gordin.
Witnessing Gordin's troubling behavior was quite unsettling for the old bishop.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2736.png

Rickard killed the cavalier without hesistation.
An act of revenge for harming Marth.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5519.png

Everyone takes the right route.
Caesar lures the murderous archer into attacking him.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28359.png

Caesar is healed by Radd.
He gains an A Rank in Staves for his efforts.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23188.png

Caesar defeats the archer, surviving with just 2 HP remaining.
Still, this is all part of the plan.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16902.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6038.png

Gordin heals him while in range of the archer.
Boah heals him from a safe position.
It's done like this because Gordin can survive a hit.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3551.png

Everyone is squeezing further into the passage.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13826.png

Caesar defeated the remaining archer.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3279.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2617.png

The Medonian sisters take care of one of the thieves.
The thieves don't seem to want to attack on their own.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32314.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18541.png

Caesar, our hero, recieves aid from Radd and Boah.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30306.png

Everyone is safe for this turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2375.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29429.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9414.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__245.png

Minerva and Maria defeat the final thief.
Maria wanted to show her talents off to her sister, so she crit the thief.
Her level wasn't as spectacular. though.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7410.png

The possessed green man gets healing from bishop Boah.
He takes this opportunity to take a good look at this poor soul.
He's looking quite pale...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26386.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24412.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8112.png

Marth is healed by resistant Ida and Radd.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7051.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2087.png

Gordin is whacked by Radd's heal Staff.
It still heals him, though.
Caesar is healed by Boah.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7608.png

Marth waits in range of the two pegasus knights that spawned earlier.
Palla and Catria.
Catria will recruit herself during the coming enemy phase.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5894.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22669.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14679.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24005.png

Catria just recruited herself.
Her dialogue does make me wonder, will the Whitewings still join you if Minerva is already dead?
Or if you never recruited her?
I've never tried it myself, but I'm curious...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14148.png

This is Catria, one of the Whitewings.
She's quite a good unit.
She ended up as my Gradivus user in one of my Iron Man runs.

Her bases
20 HP
6 Str
2 Mag
7 Skill
13 Spd
7 Lck
8 Def
6 Res

She also comes with a C Rank in Lances.
So, instant Ridersbane access.
She's pretty much ready to go and contribute once you get her.

Her growths
60% HP
45% Str
0% Mag
80% Skill
65% Spd
40% Lck
25% Def
5% Res

She'll grow quite well when trained.
She will cap her speed with ease.
Though the 23 speed cap of a dracoknight hurts a little.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17629.png

Marth hasn't been well lately.
All the deaths he has witnessed have taken a toll on his mental health.
He saw Palla and mistook her for the late Shiida.
I suppose that he just saw what he wanted to see....

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17026.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14389.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9578.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25680.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32697.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8735.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9787.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15470.png

And so, Palla joins our ranks.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9461.png

This is Palla, the oldest of the three Whitewings.
I didn't get her during my last Iron Man run.
Why, you may ask?
Castor shot her down by accident.

Her bases
22 HP
7 Str
2 Mag
8 Skill
13 Spd
5 Lck
8 Def
6 Res

Her bases hold up well.
And, she comes with a B Rank in Lances.
Which means, instant Silver Lance access.

Her growths
60% HP
55% Str
0% Mag
70% Skill
25% Spd
10% Lck
25% Def
10% Res

Her growths are decent.
Though, 10% speed is quite embarassing for a flier.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29165.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8080.png

Minerva is healed by Boah and Radd.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8310.png

Horace gets ready to choke the point.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27144.png

Darros is healed by Boah.
He asks him why he insists on using the Devil Axe.
Darros says that he's the only one who can safely use it.
The only axe that is stronger is the legendary Hauteclere, and Darros cannot wield that one.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11125.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17393.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32418.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13011.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22374.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7270.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4779.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1978.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27110.png

I hope that they'll both make it to the end.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25739.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8592.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29269.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31865.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27875.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8852.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4712.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24357.png

Hyah indeed.
I really do enjoy these little talk conversations.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30574.png

Caesar will one-shot every pegasus knight who wields a Javelin.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31109.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32534.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17620.png

Gordin and Radd heal our noble hunter.
Radd gains resistance for his troubles.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17022.png

Darros's wounds have been healed by our friendly bishop, Boah.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9796.png

Caesar gains a level for defeating another pegasus knight.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18513.png

Maria takes Horace's place.
Apparantly, the pegasus knights will line up just in range to be shot down by Maria.
She one-shots them exactly with Zas.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3833.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13766.png

Caesar gets healed again.
The next few turns will be more of the same, so I'll be skipping them unless something of note happens.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3458.png

Caesar reached a B Rankl in Bows.
This allows him to use Silver Bows.
Only one more Weapon Level before he gets to use the Parthia.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11413.png

Maria got another level.
She's seeing a lot of use in this chapter.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31862.png

The legendary Parthizas broke.
This is a sad day for us all...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26036.png

Boah seems to be blessed in speed.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16072.png

Maria gained another level by clearing the last reinforcement.
It took a while, but all is well now.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22230.png

We'll be dealing with the sniper in the treasure room soon.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16318.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24833.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23482.png

Marth produces a key for Caesar to use.
He opens the door, allowing us to all attack the sniper on the following turn.
The sniper does have a 4% chance to crit against Caesar, so this will be scary.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14519.png

Caesar survived the encounter and gained skill.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16438.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31878.png

Minerva attacks the sniper and gets a fantastic level out of it.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1180.png

Caesar finishes him off with his Silver Bow.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21756.png

Marth acquires the Silver Card.
We'll be doing some shopping later.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2786.png

Caesar gets more healing from Radd, the red legend.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4433.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28181.png

Radd just keeps healing his friend for more experience.
He gained a fantastic level for his troubles.
We'll be promoting him soon.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3650.png

Catria will be doing some shopping for us later.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13885.png

Everyone advances to the left.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24824.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1075.png

Rickard takes the Small Bullion and Radd squeezes some more experience out of Caesar's injuries.
Everyone else marched to the left.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19949.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15720.png

Rickard trades to Catria, Catria trades to Palla.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5165.png

We walked for one turn before putting Darros here to lure the knights.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16048.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5987.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5767.png

Darros is healed back to full health by our two bishops.
The malicious Macellan shoots one fireball at the enemy knight.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1939.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2676.png

Darros recieves healing from Radd and Boah.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23416.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2153.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23248.png

The possessed bishop and the man o' the sea take the knight down together.
Darros gets a typical level.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27738.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8232.png

Rickard opens the door and Horace chokes the point.
Maria waits behind him to provide cover.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__871.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30180.png

Darros got the usual healing from Radd and Gordin.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16695.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20620.png

Gordin might be an unfit vessel for Ida.
He's still too slow...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__398.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30905.png

We'll only be healing with Radd for now.
Darros defeated the knight without any trouble.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16153.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18695.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12800.png

Caesar and Minerva defeated the cavalier together.
Minerva reached a C Rank in Lances, which means that she's now able to wield our cursed Ridersbane forge.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18682.png

Caesar defeated the final cavalier.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7116.png

Radd healed for that juicy experience.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29633.png

Palla sold the Small Bullion and bought 5 Pure Waters, 10 Door Keys, 8 Heal Staves and 8 Vulneraries.
Yes, I probably bought way more than I needed.

Darros attacks the curate and misses.

We spent 4 turns doing two things.
Darros attacked this Curate for 3 turns and reached level 10.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12841.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19436.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4980.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32471.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6824.png

And Radd healed for 4 turns to reach level 20.

Radd is now a holy man.
He trained hard for this day, always healing and never backing down.
He abandoned the path of the sword for this.
And now, his efforts have been rewarded.
Still, some parts of his old lifestyle remain.
He has 5 strength, which is quite ridiculous for a bishop.

He'll serve us well.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7761.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13286.png

I decided to make a quick end to this chapter.
Minerva hammered the boss, but he miraculously survived.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28692.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2486.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17281.png

Marth wanted revenge for all that was taken from him.
He took his Rapier and plunged it into Jiol's throat.
The king of Gra was no more.
The RNG gods are telling Marth that he shouldn't be fighting on the front lines.
He still wishes to press on and help out.
To avenge all those comrades who have lost their lives.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28287.png

Another turn passed, then, he seized.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24343.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2182.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27335.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30668.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1810.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__302.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31297.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31558.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3117.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21386.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11629.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30019.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11503.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26958.png

Malledus decided to show his face again, which is nice.
Marth may not know it now, but we won't be getting Falchion, at least not the real one.
We're just going to use Nagi.
Unless my luck decides to make her miss when the time comes.
Then I'll be in some real trouble.

We had one death in this chapter.
Another pre-promote, Astram.
Heads did roll, alright.

The death counter has increased to 32.

Well then, that was chapter 14.
We conquered Gra, woo.

We'll be heading to Khadein next, only to hear that we cannot defeat Gharnef.
Still,no worries.

Look forward to tomorrow's update.

We're visiting the desert in chapter 15 of our adventure.
Khadein, the city of magic, is our target.
Or, more specifically, Gharnef.

There are two chests in this chapter.
Also a lot of walking.
We shouldn't lose anyone this time.

Current death count: 32

They are certainly good with words.
We're advancing on the mecca for the magically inclined.

The Parthizas has been recreated and improved.
This will allow Maria to one-shot every dracoknight on this map.
Though only barely.
Caesar is actually just short of one-shotting the dracoknights, even with a Silver Bow.
Luckily, we also have Boah, our wielder of the legendary tome, Excalibur.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21744.png

Tomas was inspired by our visit to Khadein.
He abandoned the path of the bow and picked up a tome.
Will he actually get to see combat?
Probably not.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9652.png

The bench is empty once more.
The dracoknights in this chapter will be somewhat troublesome, but we are prepared for them.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24734.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22497.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10597.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15459.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9339.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8686.png

This is Gharnef, we cannot defeat him.
We can stall him, however.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32147.png

Caesar defeated the left mage with little trouble.
He even dodged their counter, which might help us later.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20252.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19401.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26072.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31639.png

Beck and Marth worked together to defeat the remaining mage.
Beck gained an unimpressive level and Marth gained a better level.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4619.png

Everyone heads to the middle island area.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32072.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20144.png

Boah waits in range of one of the dracoknights.
He'll barely survive one hit.
Everyone is in range to cover Boah on the following turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1101.png

Boah defeated the first dracoknight without running into any trouble.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31853.png

Our holy man, Radd, bravely went ahead to face the Dark Pontifex, Gharnef.
He drank some Pure Water to better withstand the fiend.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17878.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7725.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22946.png

Caesar and Macellan worked together to defeat the other dracoknight.
Macellan gained another level.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29515.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13795.png

Tomas was excited to try his Fire tome for the first time, so he blasted the nearby thief with a fireball.
Minerva finished the job with one poke from her Steel Lance.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9294.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18342.png

Boah and Gordin healed the mascot of our run.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7748.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29477.png

Radd withstood Gharnef's onslaught.
That pure water is really helping out.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23105.png

Gordin appeared behind Radd to provide some healing.
Only one magic enemy would be able to attack Gordin, so he's in no danger.
Well, unless he crits the enemy mage.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25571.png

We're just standing around and healing Radd.
Eventually, Gharnef should leave.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31117.png

Radd gets healed once again.
It's turn 6, so Gharnef should leave at the start of the enemy phase.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4749.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9348.png

Gharnef decides to leave us alone for the time being.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22254.png

Gordin heals Radd.
We're just waiting for the mage reinforcements to stop.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18742.png

Caesar lures one of the other mages above.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20089.png

Radd heals Gordin, they are equals now.
It even seems that Radd would be a more worthy vessel for Ida compared to Gordin.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__74.png

Caesar kills the mage, gaining a decent level for his troubles.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25659.png

Beck defeats one of the mages.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20911.png

Gordin and Radd retreat while staying out of range of the dracoknight.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27947.png

I've made one mistake.
Beck is in range of one of the Bolganone mages.
He'll die if he gets hit.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8224.png

I was careless.
Having a ballistician would have helped with quite a few strategies.
Alas...It wasn't meant to be.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9269.png

Maria one-shots the dracoknight with the renewed Parthizas.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31114.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27514.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15312.png

Darros, Minerva and Marth take all the nearby mages out.
Minerva dodged the counter, so she's safe.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9358.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14466.png

Caesar gets healed by Radd and Gordin.
We want him to be at full health in case of an emergency.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16327.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6021.png

Caesar was healed again.
He then got into position to defeat an incoming mage from the northwest.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25300.png

Minerva holds her position, having once again dodged an attack.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30653.png

Radd healed Gordin a little for later.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18739.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1585.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21830.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18254.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16143.png

Everyone heals Caesar to prepare him to face another mage.
He can only be attacked by one of the approaching mages from that spot.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27436.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30181.png

Maria awaits the next dracoknight, ready to take him out with one shot of the legendary Parthizas.
Caesar defeats the remaining mage on the left.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13461.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32542.png

We'll be waiting for all of the reinforcements to run out while healing Maria in the meantime.
I'll post another picture if anything interesting happens.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__974.png

We waited around for a bit, but no more reinforcements arrived.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4172.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1237.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23582.png

Everyone decided to take the path to the end.
Boah healed Radd on the way and gained even more speed.
He has gained speed 5 times in a row now.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28358.png

We'll be looting the treasure room on the next turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1970.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15089.png

Marth got a Talisman and Maria got in position to defeat the another dracoknight on the map.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5403.png

Maria absolutely refuses to gain strength.
Of course, that is to be expected with her low 10% growth in the stat.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8471.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2858.png

Maria is healed by both of our young bishops.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19085.png

Caesar is going to lure one of the mages on the coming turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23675.png

Rickard pilfers the Energy Drop.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7067.png

Maria awaits the final dracoknight.

Caesar gets healed by everyone before taking the mage out.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20875.png

I completely forgot about Dolph.
He would have been fine if I hadn't forgotten to move him out of range.
I guess Macellan can finally be the superior one now.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13266.png

Maria deletes the final dracoknight with the almighty Parthizas.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12279.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9672.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19463.png

Caesar is healed by everyone.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12001.png

We just have to walk for a few turns to end the chapter.
I'll only post moments of interest for now.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32642.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29763.png

Radd healed Boah to gain his first level as a bishop.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11140.png

Minerva attacked the generic boss and missed twice.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10466.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23639.png

Caesar defeats a curate and reaches level 17.
Speed and strength, good.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16507.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21748.png

Minerva defeated the boss and gained a new level.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24463.png

Marth casually seizes Khadein.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1945.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6172.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27680.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16669.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27129.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26400.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31469.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1647.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5406.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__928.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7645.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15754.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29769.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11242.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23000.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22601.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28729.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10965.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32557.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4945.png

I've wondered about a few things in this conversation.
Is Gotoh one of the original dragons?
He's old, at least.
But he's also one of the few who wield magic.

Also, we won't be getting Starlight.
But, is it true that you only need to hit the real Gharnef once with Starlight to make him vulnerable to other attacks?
I've never checked myself.

Anyhow, this was a fairly calm chapter.
Though, those 2 deaths were regrettable.
Rest in peace, Beck and Dolph.

This brings the death counter up to 34.

That concludes chapter 15
We got to meet Gharnef.
We walked through the desert for a while.


Not much to say, really.
We'll be attempting to free Altea in the next chapter.
Let's see how well that goes...

See you again in tomorrow's update.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10636.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25283.png

Boah snorts our Spirit Dust.
This allows him to one-shot every dracoknight here.
He's also just bulky enough to survive one hit from this specific dracoknight.
The others would just kill him in one hit, but this one doesn't.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21866.png

Everyone is deployed, except Tomas.
He's mending some of our equipment and shooting some fireballs for practice.
He might have hit Malledus's tent with one of them...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2442.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25521.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30974.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24641.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15784.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4561.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7789.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12996.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1771.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22500.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14814.png

Marth speaks the truth.
He would not be alive right now were it not for the sacrifices of many allies.
We will reclaim Altea, even if the only person left standing at the end of this battle is Marth himself.

It's nice that Malledus also gets some screentime here.
Also, who is looking after Akaneia at the moment?
It's been liberated, sure, but shouldn't Nyna be there instead of with us?
Then again, she is the face of Akaneia, and thus, also the face of our banner alongside Marth.
Hm.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7596.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31685.png

Boah lures the dracoknights while Marth heads to the villages.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4322.png

Math did not fail me today.
Boah barely defeats the dracoknight while surviving with just 1 HP.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8062.png

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO
Ahem...I mean, they were supposed to go to the right.
Marth was supposed to stroll to one of the villages to recruit either Samson or Arran.
Of course, we can't do that now.
We're aborting the mission and running back to the right.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13630.png

Marth ran away, he had no choice.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27893.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23064.png

Boah is healed by both Gordin and Radd.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10988.png

Minerva is going to tank both of the dracoknights.
She should survive without any problems.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4277.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2173.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20455.png

Caesar and Macellan finish one of the dracoknights off.
Macellan's malicious magic grows...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11990.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28213.png

Maria shot the wounded dracoknight out of the sky.
She's one lucky girl.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26749.png

Everyone will soon try to squeeze into the prison before the cavalry arrives.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10664.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2706.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7497.png

Caesar acquires a killer bow for later.
He takes a shot at the enemy hero.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7348.png

We're just attacking the hero until he finally falls.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12274.png

RIP Arran.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22824.png

We'll be defeating this guy in one or two more turns.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11870.png

RIP Samson.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3876.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4810.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__97.png

We needed just a little more power to take this guy out.
So, Maria graciously allowed Caesar to borrow her almighty Parthizas.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20147.png

Caesar got a level from countering the Levin Sword hero.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23658.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20339.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20290.png

Caesar gets healed so he'll survive another attack from this hero.
Palla gets a Door Key from the convoy to open the door for us on the next turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31942.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1622.png

Caesar opens the door for us after Palla trades the Door Key to him.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10371.png

Horace defeats the Levin Sword Hero.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26067.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24844.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25660.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18981.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7908.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11300.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17688.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20114.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12750.png

Marth had a nice one-sided conversation with Xane.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28838.png

This is Xane, a chameleon.
Or freelancer if you play the American version.
I don't really have any unique stories about him, due to the way he works.

His bases
18 HP
2 Str
1 Mag
2 Skill
8 Spd
9 Lck
4 Def
10 Res

His bases really don't matter.
Well, maybe HP does.
He has no weapon ranks because he has no need of them.
He can transform into any of your units, after all.

His growths
40% HP
30% Str
0% Mag
30% Skill
30% Spd
20% Lck
15% Def
2% Res

He used to be able to wield swords in the older games.
That's why he comes with an Iron Sword in his inventory.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21262.png

Everyone seeks refuge in the prison.
We'll be waiting here for a while.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11591.png

Maria got her Parthizas back.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10968.png

Caesar was healed up by Boah.
Boah broke his Heal Staff.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31926.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14485.png

Marth helps the Akaneian bishop out by giving him one of our many Heal Staves from the convoy.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25178.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2666.png

Gordin and Radd healed Caesar back to full health.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31246.png

Horace unequipped his weapon and DAC'd used a Vulnerary.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25363.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29155.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21192.png

Boah took the Master Seal from Horace and traded it away to Caesar.
They also healed Horace.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9904.png

We'll be choking this point until both cavaliers have broken their weapon.
Actually, that is not entirely true.
We'll be choking this point until all enemies are defeated.
Since this strategy is going to be very slow and boring to watch...
Well, you know the drill, I'll only show the highlights.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2675.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28451.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20310.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2407.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31467.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30761.png

All of my healers gained a level and Boah reached an A Rank in Staves.
It took 16 turns to break the forged Javelin of the upper cavalier.
We'll still be stuck for a few more turns because we need to wait until the lower cavalier breaks his forged Ridersbane.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14403.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2282.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31425.png

We broke the other weapon.
Wooo.
It also seems like Boah is no longer blessed with speed.
Still, I am thankful for all the speed he has gotten before.
We took 5 more turns to break the forged Ridersbane.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30146.png

We'll be attacking everyone from behind this unarmed cavalier.
FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24416.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28181.png

Caesar will take all the horsemen on.
He shouldn't die unless he crits one of them or gets crit himself.
Let's hope all goes well.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3320.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1595.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13277.png

Caesar gets healed by both Radd and Gordin.
Gordin gains a level for his troubles.
We're going to have to deal with the Killer Bow guy for one more turn...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19755.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3920.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__163.png

Caesar only needs one more level before he promotes.
This will be wonderful.
He has reached an A Rank in Bows, which means that he's now qualified to use the legendary Parthia.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8087.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23395.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18874.png

He gets healed by Radd and Gordin.
We're going to clear all the enemies out.
So, you'll only be seeing highlights.
We'll see how long it took soon enough.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5749.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12849.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15779.png

Caesar finally gains his last level and earns his promotion.
I hope that the promoted curse doesn't come for him...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4622.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14456.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__614.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13451.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22528.png

Caesar got a lot of use, as you can see.
Radd also gained a level.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17124.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14749.png

Macellan grinded on the 1-range enemies and gained two levels.
He also reached a D Rank in Tomes.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11601.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13510.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32190.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25147.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7746.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30373.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11589.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23162.png

I did some unspeakable things to get Maria to level 20.
She also reached a C Rank and then a B Rank in Bows.
Yes, I had her shoot at cavaliers for many, many turns while doing 2 damage with an Iron Bow.
Boah is also getting faster again.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28238.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29798.png

Darros got the final kill and reached a B Rank in Axes.
How long did it take?
Well...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8597.png

Just 88 turns!

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3862.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3352.png

Rickard opened the door and Catria lures one of the cavaliers.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3693.png

Caesar kills one of the three cavaliers with ease.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27534.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30527.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22435.png

Marth takes the cursed Ridersbane out of the convoy and bestows it upon Minerva.
She uses it well, immediatly destroying another cavalier.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9733.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15969.png

Palla flies in and takes the cursed Ridersbane from Minerva.
She destroys the remaining cavalier without any problems.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13362.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31169.png

Catria was healed by our two young bishops.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18690.png

Everyone wanted to leave the prison after being in there for way too long.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31907.png

Everyone sprints outside.
Well, except Rickard and two of our bishops.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14850.png

Caesar is going to tank both a horseman and a cavalier.
He'll survive just fine.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__974.png

Everyone is finally free again.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16549.png

Macellan tried to take the horseman out.
He missed.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7073.png

Caesar defeated the paladin in one round of combat, like it was the easiest thing in the world.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30104.png

Marth defeated the horseman.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2205.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1983.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20724.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5112.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22451.png

Radd, Gordin and Horace worked together to take the remaining cavalier down.
Gordin reached a D Rank in Tomes and Horace crit for the kill.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27673.png

We're all heading towards Altea Castle.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15957.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20167.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10163.png

Marth walked for a turn, then took two turns to take this curate down and gain a level.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24340.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4018.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25098.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17690.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14733.png

Caesar and Minerva team up to take this guy out.
The map has been routed completely.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16257.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3889.png

It took us 131 turns to free Altea.
Maybe we should call it the Siege of Altea instead of the Battle for Altea.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6444.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30467.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30036.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20820.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7471.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11260.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12973.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9916.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3542.png

And so, yet another chapter ends.
I really want to say that there were no deaths, but that isn't entirely true.

The villages for both Arran and Samson have been lost.
So I'll count it as two more deaths, even if we could have only gotten one of them in normal gameplay.

This brings the death counter to 36.

Also, Malledus got double screentime in this chapter, so that's something

Altea is free!
Well, for the most part, anyway.

Only the castle remains.
We'll be sure to get all the loot there too.

Well then, this adventure continues tomorrow.
See you then.

Probably not.

Eventually, Gharnef should leave.

I was careless.
Having a ballistician would have helped with quite a few strategies.

Is Gotoh one of the original dragons?

But he's also one of the few who wield magic.

I am fairly certain New Mystery reveals that Gotoh and Xane are both divine dragons (like Tiki) that have given up their dragon forms permanently.

Patience is a virtue.
Then again, I've never played this chapter the "normal" way.

Seeing those killer weapon crit rates is so worrying, but its hard to avoid with this beast of a Boss. Thank goodness Minerva avoided both the crit, and got both hits in the 60s.

I actually hadn't even noticed that the boss had a Killer Lance equipped.
Such carelessness could have easily gone horribly wrong...

Marth returns to his own castle in chapter 17.
We are so close to freeing Altea once and for all...
Well, until Mystery of the Emblem happens, anyway.

Malledus informs us that the treasure of castle Altea has been untouched for all this time.
Why?
Malledus hid the door behind an Altean flag before the caslte fell.

The boss won't be that hard to defeat.
He's a mage dragon which means that magic doesn't affect him.
It also gives him a speed cap of 19.
So, we'll be fine.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31677.png

We boosted Maria's strength with the Energy Drop.
I wonder what they taste like.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2638.png

Everyone except Palla, Xane and Tomas are deployed.
Xane is having fun pranking people with his transformation abilities.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17971.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19306.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__512.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30912.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15720.png

He's right.
Marth can't remove this guy with ease.
Caesar however....

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19310.png

Everyone heads towards the treasure room.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18769.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25591.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29316.png

Horace lures the sniper with the Killer Bow.
It's a risky move, but I would rather lose him than anyone else.
Let me rephrase that, he has a chance of survival while not being completely vital to my team.
If Caesar would die to a crit, then it would cripple my team.
Minerva can't tank it because of effectiveness.

Both Minerva and Gordin wait in range of the knight.
Minerva will be able to block the treasure room on her next turn after using her full movement.
Gordin is there to chip the knights.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6415.png

I accidentally put Boah in range of the Manakete with capped speed.
Luckily, not all hope is lost.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9674.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22963.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24093.png

I've been very careful with my warp uses, so I can afford using it to save Boah.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9502.png

And so, Horace falls....

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30028.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28513.png

Caesar takes a risk which pays off.
He defeats the sniper and gets a blank level for his troubles.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29368.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16285.png

What is wrong with me?
How did I not see that in the combat forecast?
I would rather not have my run killed by such carelessness.
Erm...Rest in peace, Gordin.
I'm sorry that you had to pay for my mistakes.
His possession arc never got resolved...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4384.png

Boah defeats the knight on the right.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32052.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15245.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19315.png

The left knight is defeated by the combined efforts of Darros, Marth and Minerva.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__734.png

Minerva gains a level for her troubles.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3959.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22667.png

Rickard helps Boah equip a normal Fire tome.
Everyone scatters in fear of the approaching mage.
My original plan failed, I couldn't block the treasure room in time.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23139.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__142.png

We finally used the Parthia.
We got a brand new Warp Staff for our troubles.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__546.png

Boah destroyed this so-called hero with a simple Excalibur crit.
His life was definitely worth the warp use.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31644.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17727.png

Minerva weakened the thief for Darros to finish off.
This really shouldn't work, my strategies are falling apart and my attention is slipping.
Yet, no punishment comes.
Darros is blessed by the Devil Axe once more.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29710.png

We're still running for our lives, but no one has a chance of death at the moment.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31403.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19242.png

Radd and Catria take care of this mage.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5209.png

Caesar gets healed for later.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4532.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13342.png

Boah heals Caesar back to full health.
He waits in range of the enemy mage.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19938.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19515.png

Caesar defeats the remaining mage and gets healed.
We'll be searching the treasure room, let's only show the highlights.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16947.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20848.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17336.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29336.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25539.png

We've obtained a Secret Book, Dracoshield, Killer Bow, Silver Axe and a Master Seal.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10769.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4139.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24450.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9852.png

Maria got her hands on it the same turn because of the convoy warp trick.
She promoted to a Sniper, getting some massive boosts and reaching an A Rank in Bows.
This allows her to use the Parthia.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17600.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6602.png

Minerva gets healed and Radd gains a level.
We'll be skipping all the walking between the throne room and the treasure room.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11996.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2051.png

How speed blessed can this guy get?

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29859.png

Minerva lures this mage into attacking her.
She'll defeat him with her counterattack.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17143.png

Everyone is preparing for our next move.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26131.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12905.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19607.png

Radd traded his Warp Staff for a Recover Staff.
This will help Caesar clear both of the bishops and the sniper on the next turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24555.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8713.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16976.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23749.png

Caesar defeated the left bishop and gained a simple level.
He acquired the VIP Card.
We won't be using it in this chapter because we're broke.

Radd swoops in to restore the health of his friend back to full.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19962.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24914.png

Maria rushes in and defeats the remaining bishop.
She recieves a slightly used Fortify Staff for her efforts.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14416.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28278.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4120.png

Boah used his psychic abilities to heal Maria, ensuring her survival on the enemy phase.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16035.png

Caesar defeats the sniper without any trouble.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6553.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12840.png

Marth gives a Door Key to Maria for a strategy later.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5277.png

Boah heals Maria.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12167.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__985.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5088.png

Maria is healed to full health, then she proceeds to open the door.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2117.png

Everyone is in position to rout the throne room in the coming turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6996.png

Maria could actually have died on that enemy phase if she got hit by both Swarm and the Javelin.
Another tactical blunder on my part.
Still, luck was on my side, so she dodged both hits.

I was frustrated, so I sent Darros in with the legendary Devil Axe.
You can guess how it went, right?
Yep, it didn't backfire.
He truly is the chosen one.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14432.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10691.png

Maria defeats the Swarm bishop and gains a level.
She's getting ever faster...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23163.png

Minerva hammered the other knight to pieces.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24158.png

Everyone arrives in the throne room.
Well, except Rickard.
No one was in range of the ambush reinforcements on the right, luckily.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25218.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28896.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22231.png

Caesar is the exception to that rule.
Maria and Caesar shoot the boss.
He should fall on the next turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3434.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7484.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19537.png

Caesar and Maria finished this old mage dragon off.
Maria even gained a level.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30693.png

Strength, finally!
It only took 22 levels.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3430.png

Marth seizes the throne of his own home.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31771.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31362.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22312.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21335.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7002.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29904.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24158.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24722.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31562.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27990.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7686.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20271.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10999.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24323.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27936.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__699.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1545.png

Marth has really grown over the course of his journey.
Nyna and him aren't so different.
Malledus can get all the moments he wants from Marth, hm.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25584.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13876.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20781.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2536.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17905.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5525.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14363.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1572.png

And so, the chapter ends.
It could have gone a lot better, but we made it nontheless.

I will try my best to not make such foolish mistakes in the future.
May you two rest in peace, Horace and Gordin.
Just like Ida before, you'll be remembered.

This brings the death counter to 38

 

We liberated all of Altea!
So that's good.
I did make some mistakes along the way, though.

We'll be heading to chapter 17x next.
I am looking forward to it.

As always, see you in tomorrow's update.

I look forward to meeting the cast in their original 8-bit glory when Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light hits the Switch.
It is a little annoying that the limited edition won't release over where I live, though.

I... think? Anyway, I won't be getting Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light. I seriously have to wonder what the hell Nintendo is thinking, releasing a very old game that can't have aged well in this day and age...

Also, I'm impressed that you only had one casualty in chapter 13.

It's still fun for the people who haven't played it yet.
Though, it'll probably be a slog to play through.
Chapter 13 only went that well because some ballisticians decided not to attack.

We'll get introduced to a new character in this chapter.
He'll join us after it ends, provided that he survives.

I also gave Maria the Parthia because it's just such a rare sight.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21226.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6566.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25609.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28366.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32674.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11500.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27689.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26065.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27823.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28355.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3571.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17354.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7419.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17013.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6994.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24459.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26209.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22409.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12934.png

That spell-slinging vagabond we just saw is Etzel.
He'll be joining us at the end of the chapter.
The other guy, Dactyl, is suprisingly merciful compared to other bosses.
I mean, he's still going to blackmail Etzel, but most bosses would just kill someone outright for attacking them.
Hm.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6113.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16331.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20303.png

I lure the horseman with Cesar while luring a knight equipped with a Javelin with Maria.
Everyone heads up.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7532.png

Marth stabs the right knight with his iconic Rapier, killing him.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17862.png

Tomas sees some action as he heals Caesar.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14999.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24761.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13824.png

Maria and Darros work together to harm this knight.
Darros gains a typical level for his efforts.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7895.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11072.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28268.png

Palla trades the cursed Ridersbane to Catria.
Catria manages to exactly KO the advancing cavalier.
She gains a good level for her troubles.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29728.png

Macellan the magnificent easily zaps the knight until nothing remains.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7176.png

Minerva lures a knight without fear.
She's being covered by her little sister Maria, who has proven herself to be more than capable against all odds.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17722.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17175.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2195.png

Maria is healed by our two bishops, Radd and Boah.
Her life would have been very different if she hadn't chosen to take up a weapon and fight.
Sure, she could be safely healing everyone, but she really wanted to show her potential and impress her big sister.

Everyone moves on ahead.
We'll be searching every room, starting from the right side and working our way way down and to the left after that.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14486.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11805.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26628.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10569.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7485.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19462.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18925.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29412.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2988.png

Who needs a tome when you have your fists?
I really have to play Three Houses again to do a meme run.
That aside, Etzel will just stand around during this chapter.
He'll only attack if you're in his range.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21306.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8208.png

Darros and Macellan work together to take this knight out.
Macellan is happy that he is no longer just an armored nobody.
He pities the knights who fall to his dark arts, but only a little.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__888.png

Tomas heals Minerva, apologizing for not being good enough to heal her fully yet.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7734.png

Caesar gets a Steel Sword from the convoy.
I would like for him to reach a C Rank in Swords sometime.
Either through effort or through an Arms Scroll.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22285.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18821.png

Darros is healed by Radd and Boah.
They ask him about how to become worthy of the Devil Axe.
He answers by shrugging, then saying that you really just need to get lucky.
He confesses that the army can probably handle losing him just fine at this point in their journey.
But he wishes to stay relevant until the end, that is why he keeps risking his own life.
He can die feeling accomplished if he manages to break the Devil Axe before it breaks him.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12943.png

Maria awaits another knight equipped with a Javelin.
Her 12 defense is still suprisingly high for a sniper.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12234.png

I tried to do the impossible, thinking that his blessing would last.
Maybe you, the reader, thought so too.
Sadly, it wasn't the case this time.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25091.png

Darros fell to the cursed axe.
Never become overconfident.
One day, your luck will run out.

You served me well, Darros.
You really deserved better.
Thank you for all the good times.
Your legend won't be forgotten.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5328.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2673.png

Macellan brought hellfire upon the knight that took Darros from us.
He had really taken a liking to the man o' the sea.
Helpful, but serious.
Reliable despite always catching up.
Macellan will take revenge for Darros.
Starting with the tactician who sent him to his death, Malledus.

Then, he'll take up arms himself and wield the Devil Axe for his fallen friend!

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__37.png

Rickard opened the door to one of many rooms.
A single chest resided within.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22836.png

Tomas replenishes Minerva's HP back to full.
We need to be ready for the reinforcements later.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9651.png

Marth acquires the Warp Staff.
We do now have everything we need to skip every chapter, starting from chapter 20.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26274.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26694.png

Rickard opened the second door, revealing a lone Manakete.
Caesar could not double it, but neither would he get doubled himself.
He takes up the sword once more and protects Rickard.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12021.png

Everyone stuffs themselves into the right corridor.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27974.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23467.png

Rickard is as impatient as ever, opening another door while everyone else is still dealing with the manakete.
This room reveals a mage and a chest.
The mage would kill Rickard in just one hit.
Luckily, Maria came to his rescue, taking the mage out with two precise shots.
Rickard was suprised to see this lady with a bow save him.
He's reminded of a crush from long ago...
She's just like Zas...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13090.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10420.png

Caesar and Palla work together to take this manakete down.
Palla always gets a little uncomfortable around Caesar these days.
He asked her why she's so jumpy around him.
She told him that she had a nightmare long ago, something about being shot down by one of Marth's horsemen, dying right in front of her younger sister, Catria.
That horseman had blue hair, though...
Caesar promises to not shoot her down to get her mind at ease.
It doesn't really work that well.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26697.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19485.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28314.png

Tomas, the curate-in-training, runs up to Caesar to give him a helping hand.
He's also quite impressed by his skill with the bow.
Tomas hit a roadblock back when he was part of the Akaneian royal knights, He could never surpass what people called a C Rank.
It didn't help that his old teacher, Jeorge, vanished.
Some say that he went to Pyrathi, but people don't just get to enter that place.
Tomas excuses himself for going off on a tangent.
He's sure that Jeorge will return before the war concludes.

Maria is healed by our two bishops.
They both say that they have faith in her.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15396.png

Rickard raids the final chest on the right, acquiring a Poleaxe.
Minerva will certainly be able to make good use of it.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6072.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20180.png

Tomas and Boah bring Caesar back to full health.
Tomas is going to gain his first level after his next heal.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18602.png

It's time for us to advance.
Everyone heads to the left.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18331.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26528.png

Tomas heals Macellan while getting nostalgic about the good old days.
Like how they protected princess Nyna when the palace fell.
They retreated into a small room and slowly but surely pushed the enemy back.
They were caught in the end, but it was still a day to remember.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19065.png

We took two or three turns to walk Rickard over to the next room.
There's a slight problem, though.
The reinforcements arrived.
Three Paladins, two with Javelins and one with a Killer Lance.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19683.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10680.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30770.png

Marth barged in while ignoring the bishop in the corner.
He proceeded to wedge the chest open with the Fire Emblem.
The bishop in the accused him of blasphemy for using the Fire Emblem like that.
Marth acquired a Longbow, which would be perfect for Maria.
He called the master sniper into the room.
She appeared and shot the bishop down for threatening Marth.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27210.png

Everyone braces themselves for the incoming paladins.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5659.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31816.png

Maria gets healed by two people and positions herself in range of one of the paladins.
Ceasar waits next to her, ready to take the other one down.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32021.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18531.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30314.png

Maria and Rickard work together to take the kill.
Rickard may be frail, but he can still contribute.
He turns to Maria and promises to protect her like he promised Zas back in the day.
He wants to see her happy, carrying on the legacy of Zas.
He won't let her die.
Maria agrees, though, with one condition.
Rickard mustn't be reckless with his own life, she asks him to let her help him in his endeavors.
And so, another pact was formed.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9985.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10147.png

Caesar went ahead and wounded the paladin.
He grew faster again.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26425.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14834.png

Boah targeted the wounded cavalier through the wall.
He would die if he got countered, but the paladin will never get that opportunity.
He does not get blessed for his efforts.
But Boah knows that he shouldn't be greedy.
He already has all he would ever need.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19338.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32491.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23551.png

Minerva and Marth work together to defeat the remaining paladin.
I did have a backup plan in mind if Marth were to miss.
Luckily, he didn't.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4108.png

Radd gives his good friend Caesar some healing and moral support.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16185.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2087.png

Caesar is healed by Tomas and Boah.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16556.png

Minerva gets some healing from Radd, bringing her back to full health.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22818.png

Maria lures the archer while everyone else slowly follows behind her.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5601.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10418.png

The archer refused to move, so Maria took the offensive.
She actually gained strength again, what a happy day.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17090.png

Caesar easily defeated the mage beyond the wall.
He might get attacked by another mage on the coming enemy phase, but he'll survive that just fine.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13311.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15664.png

Maria was healed by both of our bishops.
We're preparing for later.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31057.png

More reinforcements have arrived.
They're identical to the last ones.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12928.png

The mage moved and was defeated by Caesar.
Sadly, Zas broke.
You have served us well, Zas...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8244.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9605.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7097.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4696.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4696.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8122.png

Rickard stored the Poleaxe, he then initiated a trade chain.
Eventually, the Restore Staff made it to Radd.
He healed Caesar back to full health.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27905.png

He gained nothing for his efforts.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2385.png

We're once again awaiting for the paladins to attack us through the wall.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15011.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7130.png

We do basically the same thing as last time.
The tag team of Maria and Rickard defeat the Killer Lance paladin.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16609.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16186.png

Caesar and Marth defeated the Javelin guy to the right.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26004.png

One paladin survived, sadly.
He can attack Marth, but Marth will survive.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4426.png

Boah heals Caesar just a little before the coming enemy phase.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26891.png

The paladin went for Palla for some reason.
She survived and gained a very good level.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27533.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14186.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18329.png

Minerva weakened the paladin and Rickard got some more revenge.
He gained another level.
Despite his growth, he's still too fragile for normal combat.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12774.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32739.png

Palla's wounds were treated.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5866.png

Another wave of reinforcements appeared.
This should be the last one, right?

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6092.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10351.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19739.png

Caesar and Minerva were healed back to full health.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27149.png

We got into position once more.
Hopefully for the last time today.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1610.png

We're just waiting for the next turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23690.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3159.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2806.png

Caesar crit one of the paladins during the enemy phase, so life is just a little easier on us.
He weakens the Killer Lance Paladin.
Macellan contributes by doing a whopping 1 damage to the paladin.
Marth swoops in to take him out.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13301.png

Marth gets a very good level for risking his life.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7573.png

Maria defeats the last paladin with an Iron Bow crit.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31048.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2342.png

Tomas and Boah rush to her aid, healing her back to full health.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27290.png

Everyone finally resumes their journey through the chapter.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25923.png

We're trying to lure the lower archer to us.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25004.png

He did not move, let's try that again.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2803.png

Still didn't move.
I placed Caesar in range of the lower manakete in an attempt to lure him up.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18571.png

It worked, the manakete attacked Caesar.
He gained a new level.
I hope that he'll cap speed on his own.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25768.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19988.png

He runs back to get healing and to lure the manakete.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25398.png

Caesar actually doubled the manakete after that speed gain.
Macellan got the kill.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20362.png

Tomas heals the legendary horseman.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26512.png

Caesar takes the archer down.
He'll be able to withstand a blast from the bishop below.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10219.png

We're slowly advancing.
Though really, this corridor really puts us at a disadvantage.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12101.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23273.png

Tomas heals Caesar once more, gaining a level for his efforts.
He understands magic just a little bit more now.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__533.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__180.png

Radd and Boah trade their staves.
This allows Boah to fully heal Caesar.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4385.png

I can now put him in range of the sniper with the Killer Bow.
Caesar is in no danger since he'll survive a crit.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16624.png

He got crit.
But he survived with just 1 HP!

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15473.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24211.png

Maria finished the sniper, gaining some luck for her efforts.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23024.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9087.png

We're in no immediate danger, so we are back slowly healing our units for more experience.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12560.png

Everyone tries to get through the narrow corridor.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12815.png

Minerva gets ready to lure the incoming cavalier.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14509.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13300.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20714.png

Caesar is healed again and decides to help protect the corridor.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22806.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16670.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28239.png

Caesar makes use of Akaneia's free healthcare system and goes to lure the enemy hero.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16911.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21313.png

Macellan defeated the hero.
He only gains skill for his trouble.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24326.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3989.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3203.png

Tomas and Boah provide care to Caesar.
He gets injured almost every turn, the whole army relies on him now.
Tomas reached a D Rank in Staves.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2906.png

Minerva taunts the mercenary down the hall.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2461.png

Maria helps her sister with defeating this mercenary.
Her damage output is actually higher than Minerva's.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19314.png

Tomas spins his Heal Staff before healing Minerva.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2381.png

One half heads to the mysterious locked room down below.
The others stand with Minerva as she lures the final mercenary.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23068.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19261.png

We open the door to a nasty suprise.
We're going to have to clear this room immediatly if we want to stay safe.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1313.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18379.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9785.png

Crisis averted.
We're safe once more.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29022.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3985.png

Boah and Macellan took the mercenary down by showing the arts of the magically inclined.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23880.png

I stopped close to a wall and the hidden rooms were revealed.
No one is in range of the sniper, luckily.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17826.png

Marth got his hands on a Wo Dao.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30916.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14528.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21200.png

The mercenaries started moving and Minerva is ready to stop them.
Boah healed her beforehand and got a decent level.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1026.png

Maria crits the mercenary, easily taking him out.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2551.png

Palla swoops in to block Maria from harm.
Caesar lures the sniper, confident of his survival.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9323.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9539.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29323.png

Maria and Minerva work together to take the last mercenary down.
Minerva gets a decent level.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6644.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14826.png

Palla was healed.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2985.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25846.png

Marth profits from free health care.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__802.png

Caesar lures the manakete.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10582.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30661.png

Minerva goes in to defeat the boss.
She sadly misses the second hit.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16325.png

I was planning to either take this guy out with a crit or with the combined power of Maria and Caesar.
Caesar missed.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19436.png

Maria made sure that Caesar was capable of countering the manakete.
We're hoping that the sniper won't move.
Though he should be able to survive them both.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1261.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31692.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1340.png

Maria took care of the boss.
She even used the legendary Parthia for the occasion.
Her level was decent.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25526.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18713.png

Caesar defeated the manakete during the enemy phase on his counterattack.
He defeats the sniper on this turn, training his sword rank a little.

We'll be waiting one turn before seizing to get the final treasure.


FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__751.png

That wasn't worth it at all.

Marth seizes the throne, ending the chapter.

It's fun that Malledus talks about all the gold they left behind and such.
Though we didn't actually gain any.
Well, unless it magically appears in our inventory during the next battle preparations.

And so, Etzel joins our army.
I'll do his introduction tomorrow.

We had one casualty during this chapter.
The legendary man o' the sea is no more.
The Devil Axe took him away from us.
Rest in peace, Darros.

This brings our death counter up to 39.

 

We raided the castle for some extra goodies while also getting a new unit.
We'll be using that Warp Staff well.

The Sable Order marches to meet us in chapter 18, it will be somewhat difficult.
Well then, see you again in tomorrow's update.

One green-haired healer dies.
So another takes his place.
Tomas gets the honor of replacing our fallen bishop.
He wasn't doing much anyway.

Seems Tomas will start seeing some use...

Minerva lures a knight without fear.
She's being covered by her little sister Maria, who has proven herself to be more than capable against all odds.

Daw... those sisters coming to rely on eachother and becoming the deadly combo I always knew they could be.

Her life would have been very different if she hadn't chosen to take up a weapon and fight.
Sure, she could be safely healing everyone, but she really wanted to show her potential and impress her big sister.

Macellan is happy that he is no longer just an armored nobody.

I tried to do the impossible, thinking that his blessing would last.
Maybe you, the reader, thought so too.
Sadly, it wasn't the case this time.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25091.png

Darros fell to the cursed axe.
Never become overconfident.
One day, your luck will run out.

Finally the Devil Axe comes for Darros. He always was playing with fire using that thing, and now it finally fed upon his chosen victim.

 

15 hours ago, Pierre Hoquet said:


Macellan will take revenge for Darros.
Starting with the tactician who sent him to his death, Malledus.

Then, he'll take up arms himself and wield the Devil Axe for his fallen friend!

Is Macellan going to class change into an axe class...or is his murderous plan going to keep him from doing so in this game as Malledus his foe still lives...

Maria and Rickard work together to take the kill.
Rickard may be frail, but he can still contribute.
He turns to Maria and promises to protect her like he promised Zas back in the day.
He wants to see her happy, carrying on the legacy of Zas.
He won't let her die.
Maria agrees, though, with one condition.
Rickard mustn't be reckless with his own life, she asks him to let her help him in his endeavors.
And so, another pact was formed.

Is Rickard reaching the point where he can put his vengeance behind him? has this young thief stolen the princess's heart? Is poor Rickard setting himself up for a second tragedy? Only time will tell.

Caesar crit one of the paladins during the enemy phase, so life is just a little easier on us.
He weakens the Killer Lance Paladin.
Macellan contributes by doing a whopping 1 damage to the paladin.
Marth swoops in to take him out.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13301.png

Marth gets a very good level for risking his life.

A dangerous gamble rewarded... at least Marth can't use the devil's axe....

We're going to have to clear this room immediatly if we want to stay safe.

 

One of the things I still remember about this gaiden is that nasty swarm mage sitting in that room, waiting to one shot whatever thief was foolish enough to open his door. Its such a cruel trap...

She sadly misses the second hit.

I was planning to either take this guy out with a crit or with the combined power of Maria and Caesar.
Caesar missed.

Seems your luck has started to turn. Fortunately the gaiden enemies are weak enough for that kinda bad luck not to be lethal...

Maria took care of the boss.
She even used the legendary Parthia for the occasion.
Her level was decent.

What a hero. No longer having to use some forged facsimile, but the genuine bow regalia.

It's still fun for the people who haven't played it yet.
Though, it'll probably be a slog to play through.

The problem is, though, the remake was released well over a decade ago, and if I already played the remake, what reason would there be for me to waste money on the original??? Besides that, I can't see this getting the interest of newcomers to the series.

Technically, no one knows.
He didn't tell anyone that he was there, and no traces of life were left after it got destroyed.
The same would be true for Arran and Samson, but none of the other character know of them.

Their relationship might blossom through the coming battles.
Or, history will repeat itself, shattering someone's dreams once more.

She's certainly earning her spot in the history books.
Meanwhile, Zas is already forgotten.
Generics have no ending, after all.
Their existence doesn't show up in the end, neither does their death.

We've finally reached chapter 18.
It took us a little longer because of both the gaiden chapter and the "incident", but now we're here.

Oh? I haven't told you about the incident?
Macellan was enraged with Malledus after Darros fell in the last battle.
The dark mage attacked Malledus with the Devil Axe, despite being unable to even wield axes in general.
This should have been impossible, yet he succeeded.
He hit Malledus with the Devil Axe, but it backfired.
He did not take damage, though.
Instead, he was knocked away into the river nearby.

It took our search party two whole days before we could find him.
He survived, but the Devil Axe is now permanently stuck to him.

Current death count: 39

This will be the first time that Marth faces the Sable Order.
This chapter could be skipped, but we have to hang around for a while to recruit a certain new character.

It's been a while since I've seen this conversation.
Two new generics have joined our army.
But first...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14243.png

This is Etzel, we met him at the end of chapter 17x.
He's the only sorcerer you'll get in this game.
Barring reclassing, of course.

His bases
30 HP
2 Str
11 Mag
14 Skill
9 Spd
7 Lck
7 Def
12 Res

Etzel has the highest magic when compared to all our other magic users.
He also starts with a B Rank in Tomes, allowing him to wield Excalibur.
A D Rank in Staves is also decent, since he'll be able to use Warp fairly soon.

His growths
40% HP
0% Str
30% Mag
40% Skill
40% Spd
20% Lck
0% Def
30% Res

He's a good unit.
I don't have too much to say about him, honestly.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12811.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7152.png

Aenos and Athos have joined our team.
Athos is the better unit of the two, even if he has as much base strength as base archer Maria.

I am not going to cover them in depth.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17817.png

Macellan has the Devil Axe stuck to him.
He can't get rid of it.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31361.png

Strong fatigue of the hospital visit is kicking in, I am going to resort to plan B.
I'm sorry...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20046.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8908.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32590.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16068.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6303.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15563.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3008.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14946.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12843.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32047.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3257.png

I forgot to mention that no one is occupying the bench today.
It's good to see that Malledus is confident enough to show his face again.
And Nyna...Well, she doesn't have to see Camus die today.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31544.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23292.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5563.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19272.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23920.png

Malledus heard about this new thing called "speedrunning".
He wanted to try it, so he threw the original plan for this chapter out of the window.
He ordered Radd to warp his best friend right to the enemy boss.
Radd begrudgingly did what was ordered of him.

Caesar had borrowed the Parthia from Maria to take care of the boss.
He fell in just one round.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8702.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26866.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1321.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4220.png

Boah took the Warp Staff from Radd and proceeded to Warp Marth to the gate.
Marth seized, ending the chapter.
The enemy was caught completely off-guard by this bizarre method of attack.
They surrendered out of fear instead of all attacking Marth within the gate.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29965.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__104.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3359.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3285.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17808.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14200.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__615.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8407.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25664.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10373.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12328.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23576.png

And so, this chapter ends.
Marth is adamant about getting those orbs.
Of course, who wouldn't want to have the legendary Starsphere?

We did end up skipping a character by warping through this chapter.
I will add her to the death counter, even if she's just off flying in circles somewhere.

This brings the total death counter to 40.
Sorry, Est.

Also, my apologies for this short chapter, I guess fatigue still lingers.
The next chapter will be played normally.
We'll see about the chapters after that one.

 

That was chapter 18.
It really went by in a flash.
Or two, actually.

Well then, see you all again tomorrow.
We'll be gaining all the treasures from the Fane of Raman.

With the name of Athos he better be the best of the two, as he has large shoes to fill with that name. I must admit I wouldn't be able to prevent myself from reclassing him to Sage (although his name is different in the NoA release...)

Estus the Bestus, her spare horse slayer, the Mercerius, and the only possibility of using the triangle attack all get left behind...

This is a just plain tragic turn of events...
