...How odd, you are just keeping it on him, when he can't use it...somehow that feels even more cursed...

It is the consequence of breaking the rules.
He will have to live with this until the end comes.

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...)

I was tempted to reclass him to a sage, though he's very weak compared to the real Athos.

Oh wow, just one turning this chapter huh...Oh...oh no...

Not Est...

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...

At least she lives.
She might reunite with us once the war ends.
Though, she'll remain just another number on the death counter for now.

Chapter 19 is here.
We'll be raiding the Fane of Raman today.
The treasures within will certainly aid us on our perilous journey.

Legends speak of a manakete girl who wields the power to eclipse all others.
Sadly, she won't be joining us.
Instead, the death counter shall increase once more...

Current death count: 40

Chapter 19

Spoiler

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4052.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28672.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15254.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21173.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9504.png

The Fane of Raman...
We're finally here.
This chapter provides some respite compared to the last few chapters.
Just a few enemies and no reinforcements.
We'll be fine.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5687.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15068.png

It's not like we have too many unpromoted units left who need a promotion.
He's just short of a C Rank in Staves after this.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4705.png

Only Etzel, Athos and Aenos remain on the bench.
They are having a discussion about why they joined Marth's army.
Etzel has a fierce hunger for ending this war, as we already know.

Aenos is a horseman from Aurelis who originally deserted after their army was nearly routed by Doluna's forces.
He went into hiding and lived in dishonor for a while.
He was far behind by the time he heard of Marth's exploits.
He wishes to fight in order to restore his honor.
Though that is not his only reason.
Every single soldier who Marth ended up saving from Aurelis has perished, even Hardin.
He will take this opportunity to see what kind of man Marth is.
If he's as fiendish as the rumors say, then he'll shoot the false prince down.

Athos was an old man enjoying his retirement.
He was never particularily strong, but his speed was unrivaled.
Marth's army apparantly accepted all the help they could get.
Even the elderly have made a name for themselves there.
The original crutch of the Altean knights, Jagen, fell in battle after he reached his limit.
Still, his sacrifice allowed the league to get where they are now.
Wendell, a former pontifex of Khadein, wielded the Excalibur tome when no one else could.
His demise was a tragic one, but his contributions have already been recorded in legend.
Boah, the bishop of Akaneia, is one of the elderly members who is still alive.
He took the Excalibur after Wendell fell and wielded it ever since.
Some say that the Excalibur tome blessed Boah with unimaginable speed.
And last, but certainly not least....
A myrmidon named Wrys.
An old curate who took up the blade to help everyone else.
He too, was blessed, despite the odds being against him.
His legend ended prematurely, however.
He met his end in Pyrathi, though he saved the league from certain doom that day.

Their legends motivated Athos to take up a blade himself and join the league.
His name might not be remembered, but he still wishes to help.

This is Tiki, Bantu mentioned her back when he joined us and when he died.
Sadly, we won't be able to save her.
She'll just have to go back to sleep....

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4384.png

Xane replicated Caesar, greatly increasing our power.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26187.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3414.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5629.png

Caesar took two shots at the mercenary.
Minerva flew in and equipped Caesar with his Steel Sword.
She then impaled the mercenary with her Javelin, taking him out.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28257.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2838.png

Tomas and Radd prepared Xane for battle.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3207.png

Everyone inches forward.
We'll be capturing the thieves in due time.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26105.png

Xane took care of the first mercenary.
This chapter is already more troublesome than I remember.
The enemies have forged Killing Edges...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21252.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10159.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32377.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17194.png

Maria and Macellan weakened the mercenary.
Rickard went for the final blow while standing beside Maria.
Despite all of his effort, Rickard would still fall in just one hit.
He gained a level for his troubles.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__922.png

Caesar awaits the incoming hero.
The guy does have a Killing Edge, so this will be scary indeed.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6575.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2163.png

Minerva recieved aid from both Tomas and Boah.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17292.png

Everyone is anxious for what the next turn will bring.
Radd waits close to Caesar to provide moral support.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27844.png

This is....
I should have....
Caesar....
It should have been anyone but you.
You were the one who was supposed to carry us to victory.
The one who would save us despite all odds!
And now you fell to a random crit.

This is just terrible.
All the strategies I've planned ahead of time are falling apart.
They all relied on him.

I suppose that our hopes now fall onto Maria's shoulders...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20356.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__573.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13976.png

Having Xane still look like Caesar is rather haunting.
We'll have to use the remaining turns of his transformation well...

Xane and Macellan weakened this vile hero.
Rickard exacted vengeance upon him.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28436.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4658.png

I seem to have lost sight of what to do.
Xane and Minerva will choke this area.
If they fail, then our casualties may reach a new high.

...Radd equipped the mirage who resembled his fallen friend with an Iron Sword.
He then healed him while trembling ever so slightly.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8458.png

Everyone...
Everyone has prepared themselves for what might come next.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6807.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20386.png

Xane takes two shots at the left hero while Minerva targets the right one.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20375.png

Palla cleanly defeats the left one.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9703.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17949.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19190.png

Rickard and Maria work together once again, defeating the hero easily.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24363.png

Catria goes ahead and damages one of the thieves.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__191.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28186.png

Xane and Minerva recieve healing.
The whole army is still uncomfortable seeing Xane as Caesar.
Caesar will be permanently gone after his transformation ends...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10680.png

We are preparing ourselves for the next turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15871.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29999.png

Palla and Catria defeat the left thief.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22336.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12062.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11912.png

Maria and Macellan defeat the right thief, even if the finishing blow could have missed.
Macellan's might grows.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22443.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28874.png

Tomas healed Xane.
He's going to lure the final hero on this map.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1991.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31731.png

Macellan and Maria take him out together.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4986.png

Xane's tranformation wore off, Caesar is truly no more now...
He now takes the shape of Maria.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21102.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8166.png

Minerva flies over to stop the thief with the Starsphere.
Meanwhile, Tomas heals Xane to get his Staff Rank up.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1976.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20994.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22157.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9378.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21874.png

Marth took the Longbow from the convoy and gave it to Xane.
We were planning to have him assist Maria in getting the StarSphere.
Maria just crit the thief, though.
So, Xane gave the Longbow to Maria who will hold on to the Starsphere for the time being.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10054.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9390.png

Maria countered the mage and gained a level.
We decided to split our forces to lure the remaining two mages.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13501.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2286.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26541.png

Xane lures the mage on the right while Maria lures the mage on the left.
Xane gets healed to be better prepared for the coming enemy phase.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16426.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1140.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2690.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2821.png

Xane is healed twice, then he takes the mage down.
Radd became faster for his efforts.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28456.png

Maria went on to defeat one of the curates.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30887.png

Minerva defeated the last curate on the map.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17824.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16583.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3532.png

Maria crit Tiki, taking her out.
We're going to be collecting all the remaining treasure now.
I'll only be posting the highlights.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32058.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13738.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6843.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16772.png

Xane, Maria and Boah gained a level each during our treasure hunt.
Tomas also reached a C Rank in Staves, making him another potential Warp user.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6557.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8620.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13576.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27169.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3909.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17017.png

We gained a Seraph Robe, Geosphere, Bullion (XL), Bolganone, Spirit Dust and Pure Water.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19176.png

Marth seized the throne where Tiki once sat...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9514.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28324.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12454.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22975.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29124.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3513.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29693.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8244.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5688.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15648.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__700.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17241.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19428.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5905.png

And so, this chapter ends.
I am glad that we made it through this chapter, though losing Caesar cripples our offense.
At least we still have Maria to help us.
I'll think of a different way to beat chapter 20, we shall see how it goes.
Camus will probably survive.

Our death counter has reached 42 due to the deaths of both Caesar and Tiki.

 

We've cleared the Fane of Raman.
Were all those treasures worth it, though?

We are going to invade Grust in the coming chapter.
Enemies with Brave Lances will assault us from all sides, we must be wary.

See you all again tomorrow.

Okay, first off... I would say "ouch" but I think that's an understatement. Instead...

That aside... I'm sorry, but I kinda think Caesar's death quote is rather fitting, considering. What WERE you thinking? Why allow the killing edge hero to attack first and possibly score an army-crippling critical hit rather than just using Xane and Caesar to double team and kill him? Also, how much crit did he have?

It was a tactical blunder, that's all.
Hindsight always provides the most clarity.
You are right, though.
I should have double teamed him with Xane and Caesar.

Let's see, I think that the guy had either 8 or 14% crit on Caesar.
I'll manage, somehow.

We are invading Grust in chapter 20 of our journey.
The enemy far outmatches our strength.
Camus himself is present for this battle.

I have a backup plan for this chapter.
Though the death counter will increase once more because of it.

Current death count: 42

Isn't that alliance just a sham?
They forced Grust into it with the usual "If you're not with us, then you're against us!" mentality.
It wouldn't suprise me if they were planning to pull a Gra on them and invade Grust after Marth is defeated.
Or, maybe Doluna is actually a respectable country?
It might be the land of Manaketes, but some humans still live there.
Hm.

We know what this talk means by now.
Another generic has joined us.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4515.png

This is Kerkis.
A magic user extraordinare!
He's also slower than literally everyone else in our army.

Believe it or not, but this guy used to be a traveling entertainer.
He taught himself magic to bring smiles to the people by using his craft for beautiful displays.
Think of things like creating blue fire with a simple Fire Tome or flying around with the help of the locusts summoned by a Swarm Tome.
The guy once got arrested for displaying exceedingly eccentric behavior, though people just don't understand his passion.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18987.png

This is Lorenz Hellman Gloucester after another timeskip.
Take a good look at him.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7528.png

This is Etzel who just consumed a speedwing.
He wields both the Excalibur and the Starsphere.
I don't think that I need to explain how we're going to get through this chapter.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12004.png

Everyone is ready to end it.
The bench is occupied by Malledus and Nyna.
Apparantly, Malledus had heard about Boah's plans for Akaneia.
Something about needing a foreign king.
Marth is basically the last guy left that fits those criteria.
Well, I guess that the King of Aurelis also counts.
Hm.

Yow! What a twist!
Nyna is not dead!
Jokes aside, I do like this dialogue.
Never fear, Nyna, Camus shall not be harmed!
This battlefield will only know one casualty.

And so, Lorenz falls.
Etzel blew him into the great beyond with the legendary Excalibur Tome.
If Shiida yet lived, then he could have joined us.
It would have been too dangerous for Marth to recruit him.
Something else, the normal death theme you hear when a playable or recruitable character dies was absent when Lorenz died.
Odd.

I like to imagine that Marth is just yelling to Camus from the other side of the battlefield.
Anyhow, Camus will not join our cause.
He intends to die a knight's death.
Though I suspect that he'll go swimming instead.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2054.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16187.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7536.png

Warp Staves are really convenient.
Why isn't Anna mass producing these things?
I would buy her whole stock.
Then again, we should be happy that the enemy cannot use it.
Can you imagine?
The enemy warpskipping the chapter instead of the other way around.
They would just have to warp Camus over and boom!
Game Over.
Well, I suppose that they did have that in Gaiden and Echoes with witches, but their AI is so confusing.
There's also Rewarp in Thracia and the Tellius games, though they can't act after warping at least.

Anyhow, Marth was warped to the gate.

A few comments about this dialogue.
Artemis's curse took more than one victim this time, Shiida died too, after all.
The explanation is also vague, Artemis and Anri were "parted forever" once Medeus appeared.
Anri defeated Medeus, what stopped him from coming back to Artemis?
Did he just drop dead from exhaustion after winning the battle?
That doesn't explain Marth's existence, though.
Did he already have a child before Medeus appeared?
If so, why not with Artemis?
I suppose that we simply don't know.

Something else, Nyna's last two boxes of dialogue differ depending on if Camus is defeated or not.
If he survives the battle, then you'll get the ones you see above.
This should also be canon.

If Camus is killed, then she'll ask Marth to leave the room and start crying over his death.
At least, that's what I recall.

I guess that Camus just rode right into the sea after the battle and ended up in Valentia.

Well then, we finished this chapter with only 1 death.
Lorenz.
This brings the death counter up to 43.
We'll manage, somehow.

That concludes chapter 20.
It really went by in a flash....

Join us tomorrow as we venture into chapter 20x.
We'll be getting another Devil Axe...

It's not like we have too many unpromoted units left who need a promotion.
He's just short of a C Rank in Staves after this.

Missing the C rank on staff makes me wonder how useful this early promotion really is.

Aenos is a horseman from Aurelis who originally deserted after their army was nearly routed by Doluna's forces.
He went into hiding and lived in dishonor for a while.
He was far behind by the time he heard of Marth's exploits.
He wishes to fight in order to restore his honor.
Though that is not his only reason.
Every single soldier who Marth ended up saving from Aurelis has perished, even Hardin.
He will take this opportunity to see what kind of man Marth is.
If he's as fiendish as the rumors say, then he'll shoot the false prince down.

 

What an interesting backstory...hopefully he gets a chance to helpout, and discover the kind of prince Marth is...

Athos was an old man enjoying his retirement.
He was never particularily strong, but his speed was unrivaled.
Marth's army apparantly accepted all the help they could get.
Even the elderly have made a name for themselves there.

On 11/21/2020 at 9:13 AM, Pierre Hoquet said:


Their legends motivated Athos to take up a blade himself and join the league.
His name might not be remembered, but he still wishes to help.

Not as interesting as Aenos's backstory, but I like how it links back to all the elder characters that came before him.

Xane took care of the first mercenary.
This chapter is already more troublesome than I remember.
The enemies have forged Killing Edges...

This is....

Caesar....
It should have been anyone but you.
You were the one who was supposed to carry us to victory.
The one who would save us despite all odds!
And now you fell to a random crit.

On 11/21/2020 at 9:13 AM, Pierre Hoquet said:

 


This is just terrible.
All the strategies I've planned ahead of time are falling apart.
They all relied on him.

 

Oof...after how good he has been that hurt. Do you think having Xane take the blow instead of Caesar himslef would have been better for your plans?

Maria and Macellan defeat the right thief, even if the finishing blow could have missed.
Macellan's might grows.

Soon it will be Malledus's turn to face him...

Tomas healed Xane.
He's going to lure the final hero on this map.

Xane's tranformation wore off, Caesar is truly no more now...
He now takes the shape of Maria.

Knowing Xane he is going to take advantage of that to troll Rickard (and possibly Minerva).

Isn't that alliance just a sham?
They forced Grust into it with the usual "If you're not with us, then you're against us!" mentality.
It wouldn't suprise me if they were planning to pull a Gra on them and invade Grust after Marth is defeated.
Or, maybe Doluna is actually a respectable country?
It might be the land of Manaketes, but some humans still live there.
Hm.

This is Kerkis.
A magic user extraordinare!
He's also slower than literally everyone else in our army.

Believe it or not, but this guy used to be a traveling entertainer.
He taught himself magic to bring smiles to the people by using his craft for beautiful displays.
Think of things like creating blue fire with a simple Fire Tome or flying around with the help of the locusts summoned by a Swarm Tome.
The guy once got arrested for displaying exceedingly eccentric behavior, though people just don't understand his passion.

That is an impressive magic stat...Is that the highest magic of the survivors?

Something about needing a foreign king.
Marth is basically the last guy left that fits those criteria.

Hm.

I suppose she could enter a long betrothal with Yubello (once he gets rescued), or possibly marry Michalis (although I don't think he reveals that Maria spared his life until well after Nyna's marriage).

And so, Lorenz falls.
Etzel blew him into the great beyond with the legendary Excalibur Tome.
If Shiida yet lived, then he could have joined us.
It would have been too dangerous for Marth to recruit him.

RIP Lorenz, he will never get a chance to blow himself up in the sequel.

Well, I suppose that they did have that in Gaiden and Echoes with witches, but their AI is so confusing.
There's also Rewarp in Thracia and the Tellius games, though they can't act after warping at least.

This gets fleshed out in the sequel, but Marth is actually the decendent of Anri's brother Marcellus, as Anri died without fathering any children. Anri was born a commoner, and wouldn't found the Kingdom of Altea until after Artemis's marriage. Artemis knew that the people of wouldn't accept her marrying a common, especially when the man she gave the Fire Emblem to was a Archaneam nobleman that united the remains of the kingdom in the war against Medeus while she was exiled in Altea.

Yubello would probably be more likely than Michalis after the war.
Mostly because Yubello would be considered an innocent party, at least if you compare him to Michalis who killed his father and willingly allied himself with Doluna.

Of course, Grust allied with Doluna too, though they were forced into it.

Rickard puts his hands on her shoulders, assuring her that she'll be fine.

Minerva actually got a support bonus from Maria, giving her 10 extra hit with her attack.

Minerva chokes the bridge while being surrounded by all of the people closest to her.
Est?

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30697.png

Minerva gained a level.
Though she only obtained luck.
Perhaps it'll help her get that 5 star pull in FEH.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22401.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21056.png

Maria uses the Longbow for the first time and does 14 damage to the general.
Boah cleanly KO's him with his Fire Tome.

Minerva is in range to get killed on the coming enemy phase and our healers are too squishy to get in and heal her.
What would I do, you may ask?
Use physic?
No.
FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25052.png

Minerva ate one use of her Hauteclere uses, restoring 10 HP.
It is a weaponized Vulnerary after all.
It was a horrifying sight for the whole army, though.
No one expected to see Minerva to just swallow the legendary axe whole.
Some people reportedly had nightmares after witnessing this phenomenon.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3635.png

Maria just shot 2 arrows through his armor, killing him.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10139.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12359.png

Minerva recieved healing for the wounds she sustained during combat.
Well, not only for that.
Her throat also hurt a lot from swallowing the Hauteclere...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18180.png

Everyone happily crossed the bridge once the generals were defeated.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8764.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23866.png

The paladins decided to move, so everyone decided to retreat to the other bridge.

Minerva will block them all!

Rickard is cheering her on from behind as she gains a level.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26145.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__936.png

Minerva is healed back to full health.

We plan to split the army to gather all of the treasure.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29817.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14344.png

Minerva countered the other bishop and gained a fantastic level.

The three cavaliers from the bottom started moving, we're not really ready for them yet...

Everyone gathers just outside of their range while Marth runs up.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30718.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29470.png

Maria defeats the cavalier in the middle and gains a level for her troubles.
She actually gained strength!
A rare sight indeed.
She won't be able to max out speed through normal means anymore, which is unfortunate.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__453.png

Minerva was healed by Boah just in case.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2672.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29823.png

Aenos finally got to contribute as he chipped the cavalier.
Minerva flew in and took him out with her fancy Poleax.

Macellan and Catria worked together to defeat the final cavalier.
Macellan reached a C Rank in Tomes.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16100.png

Marth got his hands on another Longbow.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20721.png

Marth opened another chest, gaining the precious Poleax within.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18750.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10153.png

Boah heals Minerva again and gains a level for his efforts.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32357.png

We're going to be defeating this manakete on the following turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3180.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13075.png

Marth is going to solo the boss.
He won't die in a single hit and he can heal himself with the Vulnerary.
The boss won't heal, so we'll be fine.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30355.png

Maria just went ahead and crit the manakete.
So that was easy.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18601.png

The army heads down to collect the remaining treasure.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29657.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26718.png

Marth survived the encounter and ran to get some healing in.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22849.png

Rickard obtained a killer bow while everyone else headed down.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18735.png

Marth put himself in range of the boss again and DAC'd a Vulnerary.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26574.png

Maria awaits the knight with the forged Javelin.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27689.png

Macellan defeats the wounded knight without much trouble.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30702.png

Rickard obtained the final treasure of the map, a Killer Lance.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22648.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31677.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4593.png

Maria and Palla finished the last knight on the map.
Palla reached level 10 and got some decent gains.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9016.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14314.png

Marth takes another Vulnerary from the convoy and heals himself with it.
The boss will fall on the next enemy phase.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5043.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6255.png

That defeat quote seems familiar.
Have other bosses said the same?

Marth defeated the boss all on his own.
The RNG gods have blessed him with a near perfect level for his efforts.
Honestly, he would be fine fighting on the front lines, but he's too important for this run to do so.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20708.png

Marth seizes the throne, ending this gaiden chapter.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26292.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28199.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10708.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15020.png

Do they imply that everyone would just have been killed if we didn't unlock this Gaiden chapter?
Curious.
I suppose that the same is true for Athena's Gaiden chapter with those kidnapped children.
I guess that all gaiden characters just die offscreen if you don't unlock them.
Except Nagi, she just keeps on sleeping.
And, maybe Ymir would have been able to fight the army off?
Who knows?
And Athena, vun voman from the sea, might have been able to defeat those pirates.
Though it's unlikely.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20152.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18506.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24100.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27092.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8249.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27933.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__234.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13837.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__25909.png

Ymir doesn't really look monstrous, he's just a big guy.
Anyhow, he has joined our army.

This chapter went well enough.
No casualties and quite a bit of treasure.
If every chapter could just go like this...

That concludes chapter 20x.
We did well.

Anyhow, we'll be facing chapter 21 tomorrow.
It should go well enough, but you can never know for sure.
See you all again during tomorrow's update.

Probably.

And yet, despite that, she's still a valid target for the Aum staff, unlike Frey, who was the canon decoy (though it turns out he actually survived, as is revealed in New Mystery).

No more DACCing Vulneraries and getting ANIM levels.

The most current translation patch can be found on this very forum, as the Lil' Manster patch (it even has a link to the romhacking page for Project Exile, where you can get the whole game translation patch it used as a base).

Minerva ate one use of her Hauteclere uses, restoring 10 HP.
It is a weaponized Vulnerary after all.
It was a horrifying sight for the whole army, though.
No one expected to see Minerva to just swallow the legendary axe whole.
Some people reportedly had nightmares after witnessing this phenomenon.

Its only one use of it, not the whole thing. Make one legendary axe's handle out of vulneraries and every freaks out about it when they break off a chunk to eat.

Minerva used to be stronger but older.

If you would just look at the units from Medon, then Minerva would be their Jagen.
Though Est is supposed to be the growth unit of the bunch while Maria is basically their Wrys.

If it fails, then I'll have to make Marth use the fakechion to finish the job.
After all else fails, of course.

Our opponent is going to be strong.

We have some tricks up our sleeve, though.

This chapter would be quite a challenge if we were to tackle it normally.
The reinforcements would easily stop the League.
We won't be tackling it normally, though.

Besides, who actually plays this map normally?

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7809.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12212.png

Kerkis heard of secret shop in the area, so he acquired both the VIP and the Silver Card while taking one of our wyverns for a spin.
He might not look like it, but he's actually fairly experienced at riding any and all mounts.
Kerkis is a man of many talents after all.

We're spending quite a bit of money on the Chopper.
All just to KO the boss of this chapter.
Minerva also uses a Skill Book to improve her hit rate.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2158.png

Ymir joined us at the end of the last chapter.
He comes with a fresh Devil Axe, though we aren't going to use it.

His bases
46 HP
18 Str
0 Mag
13 Skill
14 Spd
5 Lck
9 Def
1 Res

He comes with a B Rank in Axes and a D Rank in Bows.
His bases are excellent.
Just look at that juicy 18 strength.

His growths
90% HP
50% Str
0% Mag
30% Spd
25% Lck
10% Def
0% Res

He has good growths compared to most gaiden chapter characters.
It's a shame that there isn't much time to make use of them.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14725.png

Everyone is deployed today.
We plan to clear this chapter in two turns.

I missed out on this dialogue during my last run because Minerva had already fallen in battle.
She really adores her brother, it's quite tragic that she'll have to take him down soon.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12641.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2284.png

Kerkis flies up, he'll reach the secret shop on the next turn.
Everyone gathers close to Minerva to cheer her on.
She's going to save the whole army by chopping the boss down on the next turn.

Maria is cheering the loudest of everyone, with Rickard close behind her.

Marth apologizes to Minerva for being too weak to deal with the boss himself.
He would if he could, but he also needs to seize.

Kerkis reached the secret shop and bought 3 Energy Drops, 3 Spirit Dusts and 3 Speedwings.

If you're wondering why we suddenly have extra money...
Well, I sold some old weapons off-screen during the battle preparations.
Should I show that too in future updates?

Minerva gets warped to the boss and takes evil Merlinus down.

He does look an awful lot like Merlinus if he happened to be older and grumpier.

Radd took the Warp Staff from Tomas and sent Marth on his way.
He proceeded to seize the gate, quickly ending the chapter.

We won't be handing the orbs over to Gotoh.
Though we could technically afford to do so.

I suppose that I'll leave it to the comments to decide on that.

Anyhow, that concludes this chapter.
We did some shopping to better prepare ourselves for the final chapters.
And no one died.
This is the first time that we managed to avoid any casualties for two chapters in a row.
Both of them were warpskipped, though, so it isn't that impressive...

Another chapter finished.
We're stocked up and ready to go.


The Michalis chapter is next and it won't be easy...
Still, we'll find a way.

See you all again in the next update.

He'll prove to be a fierce opponent, but we have cheesy strategies on our side.

Gotoh resides in a village on the top of the map.
We won't be paying him a visit, though.

He'll be killing Michalis today.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1792.png

I gave Radd the Fortify Staff because I wanted to use some Geosphere shenanigans.
However, I found out that such tactics won't be necessary.
Does the Geosphere affect bosses?
I know that Medeus is immune.
Anyhow, the original plan was to kill the two curates below Michalis with the Geosphere, making more room for ranged attackers like Maria and Boah.
Michalis apprantly gets some minor extra dialogue if she attacks him.
Something like "Maria?!"

I discovered that I had 4 Spirit Dusts instead of 3, this gave Boah enough of a boost to 2 hit KO Michalis.
So, he snorted it all.
He also got 3 Speedwings to reach the doubling threshold.
Who would have thought that Boah would be one of our powerhouses?

Palla takes the Warp Staff from Tomas, then Radd takes it from her.

Marth seizes the gate, ending the chapter before the enemy even had the chance to act.

Malledus appears once again.
You wouldn't expect it, but he'll be our hero in the coming chapter.

There's not much to say about what happened in this chapter.
Just Boah demonstrating his potential.
Believe it or not, he'll be killing at least two dangerous manaketes later in the run.
If all goes according to plan, that is.

Well, that was chapter 22.
Michalis has fallen and the League continues their journey.

We shall arrive in the ancient city of Thabes in the coming chapter.
You'll see it all in tomorrow's update.

I discovered that I had 4 Spirit Dusts instead of 3, this gave Boah enough of a boost to 2 hit KO Michalis.
So, he snorted it all.
He also got 3 Speedwings to reach the doubling threshold.
Who would have thought that Boah would be one of our powerhouses?

Holy smoke you drugged Boah up into a combat monster. I was kinda hoping Maria would finish Michalis off, but it looks like this will be removing him entirely.

I am wondering which two dangerous manaketes at this point, as the 24 and 24x bosses are both Magedragons that are immune to magic damage... Is he going to be the killer of Medeus?

All will become clear in due time.
With which I  mean that you'll find out tomorrow.

Chapter 23 is here.
We cannot defeat Gharnef.
Though we're just going to pull the plug on him.

Today will be Malledus's day to shine!

Why can't Gotoh come with a Warp Staff when he joins?
He can warp entire armies without one, after all.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5402.png

Everyone is deployed once again.
Basically every chapter is going to be a warpskip.

We sold some weapons for a forge we are going to make next chapter.

Gharnef can play mindgames all he wants, we'll just be ignoring him.
There's apparantly a trick to figuring out which is the real one, but it's been ages since I fought him legitimately.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10155.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21198.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__14287.png

Radd warps Maria over to the boss, he gains a decent level for his troubles.

We're using one extra Warp use to get this small Bullion.
It'll help us forge a perfect weapon in the coming chapter.

Marth is warped right next to the throne, getting a first row seat to witness Maria's marksmanship.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6144.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18034.png

Maria took him out with no trouble whatsoever.
She even dodged his counter just because she could.
Marth seized the throne, ending the chapter within one turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3910.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9921.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32542.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31624.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4088.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10000.png

Malledus is actually our hero for shutting the unseen apparatus down.
Can't Gharnef turn it back on again, though?
Actually, this is the first time he actually does something more meaningful in the story.
He usually just provides advice or forces us to sacrifice one of our units as a decoy.

Elice has been freed.
She'll contribute by using Aum but once.
I'll talk more about her in the coming chapter.

Well, this chapter ended quickly, maybe I should do a double post tomorrow.
My apologies for seeming a little low-energy lately, there's not much to say about warpskipping.
 

And so ends chapter 23.
Malledus finally did something good.

We'll be tackling chapter 24 tomorrow.
Many manaketes will stand in our way, but we have Boah to defeat them all!

You could have probably spent a few extra turns pulling back to the treasure room to loot it before warp skipping. I guess this still works...

Depend on how he shut it down. Shut it down with a hammer, and it would probably be a bit harder to turn it on again.

We have more than enough Warp uses left to warrant this frivolous use of it.
I would have played chapter 23 normally if we hadn't gotten another Warp Staff in Etzel's chapter.

Malledus doesn't seem to be the best guy for the job.
Still, it worked in the end.

I'll still try my best to add in some extra text.

We have finally invaded Doluna in chapter 24 of our adventure.
Prepare to witness some questionable tactics.

We'll be clearing this chapter rather quickly.
Boah will easily defeat the boss for us.

Heroes did indeed rise and fall.
All of our fallen comrades paid with their lives to get us this far.
And now, we're here.
Though, this quest won't end just yet.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26000.png

I reclassed Athos while thinking that Arms Scrolls worked for Staves.
They do not.
So he was reclassed for naught.
We also sold a lot of items offscreen.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19798.png

Kerkis is going to visit another secret shop for us.
That will be our last shopping trip too.
I originally planned to warp four people during this chapter, but I am just one warper short of fulfilling that.
Boah has to kill the boss, after all.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4274.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29128.png

All of our funds went into this ridiculous forge.
We named it "Wrys", in memory of a legend who met his end too soon.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15227.png

Of course, Boah needs to reclass to wield this legendary blade.
All the Speedwings he got in the other chapter allow him to have capped speed when reclassed to a Swordmaster.
He's still quite frail, though...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3121.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29328.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20511.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30427.png

Boah just took all the stat boosters to ascend to godhood.
Yet, it's still not enough.
That's why Kerkis is going to visit the Secret Shop.
To satiate Boah's hunger for more power.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12322.png

We'll be 3 turning this chapter because Kerkis needs to reach the Secret Shop first.
Ymir and Athos keep the bench warm for today.

I almost forgot to talk about Elice.
We deployed her to be another Warp user today.
She's a great utility unit.

Her bases
18 HP
0 Str
2 Mag
5 Skill
6 Spd
3 Lck
3 Def
8 Res

She comes with an A Rank in Staves.
This allows her to use every Staff in the game.
She's also one of the few units that can wield the legendary Aum Staff.

Her growths
60% HP
0% Str
30% Mag
50% Skill
60% Spd
80% Lck
0% Def
30% Res

Her growths are quite good for Shadow Dragon standards.
Though, we're only going to see her level up once in this run.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30925.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2682.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30423.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24642.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8302.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4821.png

Then we have the advantage?
Marth, have you seen Hard 5 Medeus?
He destroys every single one of us in single combat.

That aside, wasn't Medeus already resurrected at the start of the war three years ago?
I suppose it takes a long time for one who was sealed away to regain their draconic disposition.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27215.png

Kerkis takes flight.
He will arrive at the Secret Shop soon.
Everyone else waits and watches from a safe distance.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16771.png

He'll reach his destination on the next turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9708.png

Kerkis reached the Secret Shop.
I apparantly forgot to take a screenshot of the interior, apologies.
He bought 3 Seraph Robes, 1 Arms Scroll and 1 Dracoshield.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29141.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15646.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16102.png

Radd transported Rickard deep within enemy lines.
Rickard held Maria's hand before he got teleported away, smiling nervously while reassuring her that he would get right back.

He opened the chest once he arrived in the Resurrectory, acquiring the long-lost Aum Staff.
His turn ended and he closed his eyes, hoping that he would magically return to base like usual after the whole turn ends...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31892.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27292.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28835.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8687.png

Tomas takes the Warp Staff from Radd and transports Boah to the boss.
He gains a typical Shadow Dragon level for his efforts.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21806.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5371.png

It's quite scary to see the enemy having 7% crit against Boah.
If Boah falls here, then he won't be the only one to have his life cut short.
Rickard would be lost too....

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22887.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3927.png

Luck was on his side this time, but he needs to survive two more encounters just like this.
He gains an empty level for barely withstanding the enemy.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30685.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9088.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9316.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15360.png

Catria acquires the Warp Staff from Tomas before passing it along to Elice.
She warps her brother to the throne while asking him to not push himself too hard.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30022.png

Marth arrives, seizing the throne and ending this chapter.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7251.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29952.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28206.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29428.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26083.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21180.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7923.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5883.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6663.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3048.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20459.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22236.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10570.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__7086.png

Gotoh isn't wrong.
We lack the power to defeat Medeus currently.
Besides, the Wyrmslayer is not effective against him for some reason.

Still, getting sent to an unseen dimension really is an unexpected turn of events.
The only other Fire Emblem games in which that happens are Fates Revelations and Heroes.
But, I guess that Shadow Dragon did it first.

Also, right here, he said it.
Tiki merely returned to her slumber.
Though you can still shatter the universe by getting both Tiki and Nagi as well as both Falchions.
But that's technically a glitch.

Still, all went according to plan.
Even if the enemy's crit rate can come back to haunt me in the future.

Rickard woke up back at the base, it seems that Malledus's strategy worked.
He's glad to still be alive, his life would have been forfeit if the plan fell through.
It would also have meant that grandpa Boah would have fallen.
Some of the younger members started to refer to him as "grandpa" because of his age.
Still, they meant it with respect.
He's the only senior who is still around and kicking despite all of the hardships we faced.

And so ends chapter 24.
The end approaches, though it won't be here until the update after the next.

We're going to an unseen dimension in the coming chapter.
See you all again when we traverse the Alterspire tomorrow.

I would have done just that if I had some extra Speedwings left over.
Sadly, I do not have enough.
We really need to hit that speed cap of 30 if we want to double those manaketes.
Only Boah had the speed required to make it there.

There was no plan, actually.
I hadn't taken his low luck into account when planning.
We would have probably warped Maria in on the next turn to hopefully finish the boss.

We are traveling to another dimension in chapter 24x.
Marth does not know what he will face in this unknown world.
Our journey ends not today, but tomorrow.

We must pass the trial of the tower.
But we have no time for that, so we're going to cheat.

I do wonder if there's more to this unseen dimension than just this tower.
It looks like there's just this island and an ocean around it.
Though we don't really get to see much else.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10921.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28126.png

Well, except that one Speedwing we still have laying around.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13280.png

Everyone is ready to warp both Boah and Marth right to the end.
Xane, Kerkis, Elice, Etzel and Ymir occupy the bench today.

Or, well, they aren't really on the bench.
They are left behind to fight off Doluna while we're out exploring unseen dimensions.
They lack the strength to hold out for long, that's why we're warpskipping today.

If they're real people, then there must be more to this world than just one tower.
It's probably meaningless to speculate about them, though.

Boah gets warped to the boss and proceeds to one-shot him with the almighty Wrys.
He would have survived a crit had he magically missed the first hit.

Tomas acquires the Warp Staff from Radd and proceeds to warp Marth to the throne.
Marth seizes the throne, showing that cheaters can prosper if they have the Warp Staff on their side.
Ahem, I mean, it shows that we can beat the odds as long as we have the power of Warp.

We meet Nagi, another divine dragon.
We don't really know who she is, only that she's the master of this tower.
She apparantly knows Gotoh and Medeus comments about her as well.
We'll be talking more about her in the final chapter.

We also obtained a weakened Falchion.
Why does she have it?
We don't know.

Malledus had much more screentime than usual in this chapter, which was a nice suprise.
Anyhow, this chapter is over.
No casualties.

And so ends chapter 24x.
We now have everything we need to slay Medeus.

We'll be entering Doluna Keep in the Endgame to end it all.
See you in tomorrow's update.

Or, well, they aren't really on the bench.
They are left behind to fight off Doluna while we're out exploring unseen dimensions.
They lack the strength to hold out for long, that's why we're warpskipping today.

I kinda like how you decided on a story reason for warp skipping this chapter.

Complete overkill. Having this magedragon boss immediately after the last just emphasizes how much easier the gaidens are to the normal chapters...

It's more fun than just saying the same for every chapter.

They are supposed to be beatable for less fortunate players after all.

We have finally reached the endgame.
Many comrades were sacrificed to get us here.
Marth grips the fake Falchion tightly, readying himself for his final battle.

Malledus keeps a safe distance from the battle.
Our strategy will involve the tried and true method of Warping.

Current death count: 43

This is it, the final chapter.
All should go well....

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10493.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21946.png

There's just one problem.
Or two, in fact.
We cannot one-turn this map.
We need three Warp users and one Aum user to pull that off.

We have Tomas and Radd available for Warp while Elice is around for Aum usage.
As such, one turning is impossible.

So, we could go for a two turn strategy instead, having Xane transform on the first turn to give us the last Warp user we need.
Seems good enough, right?

The problem is this ballistician.
He'll oneshot Elice.
...And Marth.
So, this ballistician has to die.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10239.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4268.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30041.png

I thought of something.
It's still a shaky plan to say the least, but we don't really have a choice.
We must use the Geosphere.
There's just one problem...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3111.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22125.png

Elice and Xane cannot survive all three uses, even with the healing from the Fortify Staff.
So, we can only use it twice.
Still, this should be enough to bring the ballistician in range to be killed with the combined efforts of Minerva and Ymir.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29693.png

Macellan was originally deployed for this chapter, but I want him to live, so he's been sent to the bench together with Etzel.
They get first-row seats to this disaster....

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27863.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31130.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27022.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8814.png

And so, it finally begins...
Let me be real here, our chances of victory all depend on the RNG.
There's no backup plan if we fail.
Our journey would end, just moments before we reach the ending.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__15178.png

This is Nagi, our savior.
She'll be the one to slay Medeus.
She's the only one who can, after all....

Her bases
32 HP
8 Str
2 Mag
12 Skill
14 Spd
10 Lck
6 Def
10 Res

I don't have much to say.
She'll 2 hit KO Medeus, though I am unsure if she would be able to accomplish that if we factor throne healing in.
She has to defy death itself to bring us to the end.

Her growths
90% HP
50% Str
10% Mag
80% Skill
80% Spd
90% Lck
20% Def
2% Res

Her growths are top tier for this game.
We won't be seeing them in action, though.
Or, not much at least.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19759.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__19779.png

First use of the Geosphere, all is well.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__2600.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16581.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9980.png

Second use of the Geosphere, the earth shook once more.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8289.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4485.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16847.png

Elice used Fortify, healing everyone again.
We're almost ready to attack.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4798.png

Xane transforms into Elice in order to be capable of using the Warp Staff on the coming turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29629.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10704.png

Ymir and Minerva work together to defeat the ballistician.
Our strategy can continue as planned.
Ymir and Minerva might not live to see the end, however....

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16148.png

Everyone moved out of the danger zone as much as they were able to.
Boah consumed a Vulnerary to prepare himself for his battle with the manakete on the coming turn.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20671.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32646.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__32588.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30043.png

There was no other way....
Losing Minerva does sting the most, she helped us get so far only to fall in the final battle.
Their sacrifices are not in vain.
We reached turn 2 and are now ready to end this once and for all!

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9725.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__17112.png

Tomas warps Boah over to the one manakete standing between us and Medeus.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__27255.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__6584.png

Well, isn't this convenient?
Exact damage, no risk of getting crit in return.
You truly are our legend, Boah.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30600.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16781.png

We send Nagi over to chip Medeus.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1679.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__9731.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13612.png

Those two have some history together.
It's curious, isn't it?
She just has to hit.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__21591.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4438.png

This. Is. Terrible.
She missed.
I jokingly predicted this before, but this crushes my soul.
Still....There might be another way....

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__18824.png

I found another way to win.
Though it involves more sacrifices.
Marth has the weakened Falchion.
It's not strong enough to defeat Medeus on its own, even with chip damage from Nagi.
However, Maria is capable of dealing just enough damage with the Parthia for Marth to finish Medeus off.

She'll die, though.
It's terrible.
Rickard won't even be able to hold her hand during her final moments.
This enemy hero will kill him before she makes her last stand.

Still, I will keep my promise.
I will finish this run, even if only Marth makes it to the end.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__22352.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16140.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__30739.png

Nagi has been resurrected.
She's essential for this new strategy.
If she misses again, then it's all over.

Elice gains another good level.
There's this feeling of dread in the air...

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__20992.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29726.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__320.png

Radd fortifies the army one final time, then, the turn ends.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13785.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__8385.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__12260.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__5401.png

Palla was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Rickard...Rickard was just a small-time thief, he never really had any ambitions other than stealing treasures.
Then, he met Zas and he swore to keep her safe.
Malledus placed him on the bench one day, and Zas fell in battle.
He took up the blade of Vengeance and devoted himself to getting revenge ever since.
Later on, he met Maria, the little princess of Medon.
She was a cleric at the time, a typical frail princess.
But she was tired of being helpless, so she took up the bow and slowly grew stronger.

Rickard saw the renewed Maria on the battlefield and got all nostalgic.
He promised to keep her safe, as she promised him the same.
They have been a tag team ever since and Rickard's heart was slowly starting to heal.
Now we're here, in the final battle to save the world.
And we're losing.
The only way forward is to sacrifice everyone to save the world.
Rickard completely lost it when it dawned on him what that meant.

Nearly everyone would perish.
Including Maria.
Just then, Maria shook him out of it.

She seemed solemn, having already accepted her role.
She found comfort in the fact that she would be joining her fallen sister soon.
Seeing Maria having her mind all made up snapped Rickard out of his breakdown.

He promised that they would see each other again after all of this is over.
He took his blade up for the final time and made himself bait for the enemy hero, all in order to buy Maria and Tomas enough time to finish this once and for all.

He died with a smile on his face, knowing that he managed to protect Maria just a little longer.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boah fell by Medeus's hand.
Or breath.
Our unlikely hero met his end right at the end of our journey.
He was the senior that lasted the longest.
The speedy Bishop and the master of the sword.

His last words were for princess Nyna.
She must be strong, even if everyone falls around her.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__26379.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__49.png

Elice sent Nagi to Medeus.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__3258.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__4191.png

Nagi succeeded.
She hit Medeus.
And she fell once more.
This time, she won't be coming back....

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__13856.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__28032.png

Tomas sends Maria towards her death...
I came to a realization.
The throne gives Medeus 2 more defense.
We cannot win unless she or Marth crits.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23910.png

She did not crit.
Maria's legend ends here.
Just like how Zas's legend was cut short way back then....

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__23507.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__1444.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__10903.png

There's nothing else left for us to do.
We send Marth to the end.

He takes the Lightsphere to nullify the throne's bonus defense.

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__24444.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__29890.png

If he just had 1 more strength....
He missed his attack and....

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__31615.pngFIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__11339.png

Marth falls in battle against Medeus.
Our final foe has slain our hero.

And so....

FIREEMBLEM11_YFEP01_00__16586.png

Game Over.
This was a "Hard" Iron Man.
Meaning that it ends when we get a Game Over.

We struggled so much to get here.
It's truly cruel to have it end like this.
I suppose that I couldn't keep my promise of reaching the end no matter what.

Haha...hahahaha....

Let us take a look at the death counter one final time....

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.
Chapter 12: Vyland, Linde and Hardin.
Chapter 13: Midia.
Chapter 14: Astram.
Chapter 15: Beck and Dolph.
Chapter 16: Arran and Samson.
Chapter 17: Horace and Gordin.
Chapter 17x: Darros.
Chapter 18: Est.
Chapter 19: Caesar and Tiki.
Chapter 20: Lorenz.
Endgame: Minerva, Aenos, Ymir, Athos, Palla, Rickard, Kerkis, Boah, Nagi, Maria and finally, Marth.

This brings our total to 54 deaths.

This was truly an unforgettable adventure.
My first true "Hard" Iron Man.
It had it all.
Deaths, legends, unexpected strategies, stories.

And, a heartbreaking ending.

I am thankful to you, the reader, for experiencing this adventure with me.
I hope that you had just as much fun reading this as I had making it.

A special shoutout to Eltosian Kadath for always replying to the posts of this Screenshot Let's Play.
It was very motivating for me to read your fun replies.
Thank you.

 

Now then, the end of this post won't spoil what actually happened in this chapter.
After all, where's the fun in that?

Our adventure finally reached its conclusion.
I truly had a lot of fun, even if a daily update schedule could get a little straining.

This is where I'd usually say something along the lines of "See you in tomorrow's update!".
But, this playthrough is now finished.
I'll probably take a little break before trying something else.
If you have any ideas or suggestions for my next project, don't hesitate to share them.

Well then.
This is it for now.

Thank you all very much for reading this Screenshot Let's Play.

Sad part about this is, it would have been much more likely if you used 24x to train up Marth and Maria a little on the easier enemies there (plus you might have been able to drag that generic bishop up to Wap staff rank...)

And so....

The miss just adds insult to injury. RIP the run, it got so close, only to fall to Medeus himself.
