Early to mid-game
Q) If a character dies
in Lyn's story, will they return in Eliwood/Hector's story?
A) Yes, they will return, but with their
default Eliwood/Hector mode stats.
Q) Do items carry over from Lyn's
A) No. Returning characters come with a brand new inventory.
Q) How comes my Thief can't steal
an item from an enemy?
A) There are two reasons for this. The most likely reason is that
the enemy's Speed is greater than your Thief's. Otherwise, make sure
that your Thief has free space in his inventory.
Q) Does participating in sidequest
chapters affect your Ranking?
A) Yes and no. The game's explanation of this is a little
misleading. Each chapter that you participate in (including sidequests)
adds on their own Ranking requirements to a total set of requirements
(see this page for more info). So, yes, if
you participate in the sidequest, the overall requirements will change.
However, the decision to skip it or not doesn't have any direct
effect on Rankings by itself.
Q) Is there any point to getting a
S Rank in staves?
A) Since there is no S Rank staff, no. Also it does not increase your accuracy when
using stat-affecting staves.
Q) I made Merlinus obtain an item.
How do I get it back from him?
A) You have to wait until the chapter's end, then during the
preparations screen use the List option (when trading items) and look
for Merlinus' item(s).
Q) When do the Lords promote?
A) Lyn, Eliwood (in Hector's story) or Hector (in Eliwood's story)
can promote using the Heaven Seals obtained in Chapter 24E/26H and
Chapter 26E/28H. Eliwood (in Eliwood's story) and Hector (in Hector's
story) promote at the end of Chapter 27E/29H.
Q) What happens to Sonia if you
skip her chapter?
Q) Can I kill off Pent/Louise to
free the support slots for Louise/Pent?
Q) How do I get Renault's A
Q) If I start Lyn's story in a
certain difficulty, can I swap difficulty when I reach Eliwood/Hector's
Q) Can you ever fight Ephidel?
A) No. Ephidel doesn't even have proper character data in the game.
Q) Who is Kishuna?
A) An early morph created by Nergal, who exhibited signs of emotion.
else is probably speculative.
