Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword
Credits: Nitrodon (Tactician points)
When you start a new game, you will be prompted to make a profile
for yourself, as the Tactician of the protagonists' army. If you're
starting Eliwood or Hector's story, you can skip making a Tactician,
while it's compulsory for Lyn's story.
Note: This applies
for the English version only. The Japanese version included an
additional setting, Blood type, which was also a deciding factor.
In the Fortune-Tactician window, one star is awarded for every 12
Tactician points obtained. Tactician points are added at the end of the
each chapter, the amount depending on the Overall
Rank obtained for that individual chapter:
0 for E Rank, 1 for D Rank, 2 for C Rank, 3 for B Rank, 4 for A Rank
and 5 for S Rank
When the Tactician is present, some characters will briefly speak to
the Tactician when the battle begins. The character that appears
depends on the current chapter you're in.
At the end of Chapter 22 (Eliwood's story) or Chapter 23 (Hector's
story), or the corresponding sidequest chapter if you chose to accept
it, you will obtain the Afa's Drops item. However, you will only obtain
it if the Tactician is present. The Afa's Drops increases a character's
growth rates by +5% to every stat.
There are two slightly different versions of the Epilogue, depending
on whether the Tactician is present or not.
Not an effect
Some guides claim that characters with the same Affinity as the
Tactician have all their growth rates increased by 5%. This isn't true.
