  1. Staff of Ages (Version 1.7.2 is here!)

    As of the current build, no supports are implemented. Supports should be mechanically implemented in the next major release, but there won't be actual conversations. Just the bonuses.
  2. Fire Emblem D20?

    Do a search for something called 'Fire Emblem: The Further Journeys'. It's somewhere out there in the internet. It's a pdf. You might find it slightly helpful. You might not. As a further note, if you'd like an extra pair of eyes, PM me.
  3. Concept for Elibe prequel

    I happen to be a decent writer and passable editor. I've written for romhacks before, so I've got a bit of experience with this stuff, and I love the idea of expounding upon lore. Fire me a PM if you'd like my help.
  4. Awakening Plot Analysis

    *cough* Well, I have a theory ... which I wasn't going to post, but you asked... I don't believe in recursive time travel, that is to say, the Grandfather paradox is not actually a paradox. Any alterations done to the past do affect the future, just not the one you're from, and you can't return to the one you're from. In other words, Back to the Future got it wrong. Moving on ... It's evident that the generation that Lucina is from do not actually have the corresponding parents. The proof is easy enough - Female Robin isn't S-ranked to Chrom in the prelude, and Lucina has been born by then. Essentially, what I think is that the children were ... altered ... during their travel back to have them match what they should become in the future they set out to make. Robin does not S-rank in the original timeline, which leads me to believe that Morgan is actually a pure construct of the time stream, formed by the memories and wishes of the rest of the children when they traveled back. Morgan's gender is opposite, as kind of a yin to Robin's yang as it were. ..But that's just my wishful thinking.
  5. FE: Heart of Dawn ( Demo available )

    What you are doing is hard, but not impossible. FE9 is built to revolve around Ike, just as FE10 revolves around Micaiah. A lot of worldbuilding in FE9 comes from Ike. Soren, for example, heavily contributes to the game's backstory and character as a Branded who hates Laguz. Greil's backstory and the Fire Emblem itself is more closely interwoven with Ike then it is with Elincia. Ike is the one who can beat the Black Knight, who is a cat's paw to the real villain. In other words, what you are attempting is possible, but only if you do some serious wordbuilding of your own, like developing the backstories of Lucia, Geoffrey, and (most certainly) Bastian to flesh out Elincia as a character equal to Ike. ...Yeah, I did say equal. Ike is an integral part of PoR, there's not much you can do about it without rewriting the entire game. Fire Emblem. Glowing sword. All that stuff.That being said, I do think I like the idea of Elincia defeating Ashnard much more than having Ike whack him. (Requests: It would be cool if Elincia's sword got a backstory or sidequest, like FE7. It would also be cool if the Black Knigh fight was an RNG battle or a stat mash, but something which required a puzzle to solve - like Cecil's duel against himself in FFIV) Actually, on that subject -> You might want to Google "Enelysion Redux". It's an RPG maker game that, while ignoring most mechanics of Fire Emblem, bases it's story around FE7/FE10 and has a very 'Fire Emblem' feel to it. The screenshots look a bit like it, actually.
  6. Awakening Plot Analysis

    I haven't played DLC (gasp!), so I can't really answer you're Future Past question about the two Morgans. I don't think Morgan is cannon from Future Past, although I heard a conversation in the Hot Springs DLC implies it. The survivors: Reaching 0HP isn't a guaranteed death. Frederick, Virion, Lissa, and most first-gen mothers can do it, as well as Basilio. So, here's my (fanon) take on how they all survived: Emmeryn has the most plausible explanation, she survived the fall. Frederick mentions there were rumors of no corpse, and the Shephereds were on the run. It's plausible. Gangrel isn't so bad, he's a coward, and one might be easily lead to believe that he faked his own death when he saw he was losing. Walhart - well, he's Walhart. Yeah, his surviving makes little to no sense, especially since he's not the type to roll over and die, but it's believable that he shrugged off mortal wounds. Aversa: I guess she survived because of black magic? I don't have a good explanation for her surviving, sorry. It's pretty clear from her death quote in Ch. 25 that she wants to die. Once again, you can claimed "recovered from mortal wounds miraculously", but I don't know... It's also unclear how she learned of the Wellspring of Truth, though I suppose you can use Naga as an answer to both questions. Thanks for the support!
  7. I've been thinking of doing this for a while, as I greatly enjoyed the Awakening plot. Anyway... Awakening Plot Holes Explained: As an avid reader of epic fantasy, I noticed that there are a lot of players that missed very subtle nudges within the Awakening storyline which clears up 90% of the ‘so-called’ plotholes. I shall endeavor to explain away all the plotholes and challenges. I do ask that anyone reading this take an open mind, and realize that we are descending into a realm of fantasy. If you have any questions about things I didn't address, ask away, please. If you have any objections, raise them logically. Also, F!Robin is future Robin, not female Robin. Just clarifying. F!Robin and the Awakening Rite: (or "Why does Future Robin wait to Awaken as Grima?") So, F!Robin doesn’t need the Awakening ritual to emerge as Grima. This is obvious, as Validar has a fake Fire Emblem, yes F!Robin still turns into Grima. The reason F!Robin waits until now is twofold. One, the sacrifice. In order to obtain his full power, F!Robin mentions that he will claim the sacrifice laid on the Dragon’s Table, meaning that Grima requires the Dragon’s Table ritual to acquire full strength. This could only be done when the populace had converted to the Grimleal. The main reason is as follows: Grima wanted Robin to undergo the ritual. In other words, Grima thought that destiny couldn’t be changed and there was no way for Robin to avoid the Awakening process. Thus, he delayed it. After all, why shouldn’t he delay it? Grima didn’t believe in undoing destiny, so in his arrogance he decided to let the events unfold as they did in the future. Yes, Grima is too arrogant. This is hubris, and it is a common character flaw in many villains. Carrion Isle: (or "This chapter had a point ... right?") Validar sends assassins after the Shepherds on Carrion Isle. Durig your first play through of the game, your response is “Ho-hum. Evil dark lord is playing creepy mind games and trying to kill me.” The second play through, your response is “Hey, wait a minute. Validar wants us to beat Valm! Why is he trying to kill us?” Simple. Because if he didn’t, Robin would’ve suspected something. Think back to your first play through. You thought that Plegia was giving you stuff because they had too, having lost a war. This way they get an assassination attempt in, plus creepy mind games. Only in your second play through, do you realize that Validar wants to give you all the warships. The reason Validar tried to assassinate you was because he wanted to look suspicious, so you wouldn’t figure out his true motive. The assassin at the end of the chapter? I’d bet that’s the same assassin that Lucina killed in Chapter 6! Validar is attempting to set history right by wounding the prince with the correct assassin. I’m not sure why F!Robin revealed himself – yet. The survivors: Reaching 0HP isn't a guaranteed death. Frederick, Virion, Lissa, and most first-gen mothers can do it, as well as Basilio. So, here's my (fanon) take on how they all survived: Emmeryn has the most plausible explanation, she survived the fall. Frederick mentions there were rumors of no corpse, and the Shephereds were on the run. It's plausible. Gangrel isn't so bad, he's a coward, and one might be easily lead to believe that he faked his own death when he saw he was losing. Walhart - well, he's Walhart. Yeah, his surviving makes little to no sense, especially since he's not the type to roll over and die, but it's believable that he shrugged off mortal wounds. Aversa: Well... Perhaps Grima felt like a bit of psychological torture at Aversa's expense, revealing the truth to her using the Wellspring of Truth. I believe Medeus does a similar thing to Lady Eremiah in FE12.
  8. No, but by talking to the generic soldier, you can recruit a character with Sae'rah in a later patch. I think that's what your confusion is, anyway.
  9. Staff of Ages (Version 1.7.2 is here!)

    Need a hand writing?
  10. That's ... a while for the next Elantris. Mistborn would be somewhat difficult, as it would be almost entirely greenscreen. And then you have the mental metals, and then you have to explain the whole magic system. Wheel of Time doesn't have a complicated magic system. It's got Aes Sedai who swear not to kill people unless a) it's in self defense, b) the lives of other Aes Sedai are threatened, or c) they're fighting Darkfriends. (There is no Black Ajah. We don't know what you're talking about. Stop spreading lies.) which is kind of pointless, because who else are they going to kill? And they always lie about everything too, which is really impressive considering they swore not to. I ... may think negatively of Aes Sedai, in case you couldn't tell. Along with everyone else in the book. Seriously, every character that's not an Aes Sedai hates them.
  11. I've finished the series. I guess that means if I start spouting the traditional one-liners the end of series is famous for, I'll ruin it. Hmm. Wouldn't want that. @Monde: The sequel for Elantris is coming out in what, three years?
  12. Dovie'andi se tovya sagain! I can't say that I'm a longtime fan of the series, but Wheel of Time is a true epic fantasy with some of fictions most memorable characters. ("It's time to roll the dice" in case you were wondering. Battle cry of the Red Band. And, actually could be used quite well for any FE player.)
  13. Fire Emblem Anniversary Game Concept

    See the point I made earlier? That's 13 swords, 1 lance, 1 axe, 1 spell. Even allowing for Micaiah that's 2 spells. Now, the game's final baddies are exactly lance-locked, usually it's just an evil spell or breath attack, but if you want to make full levels with enemies being a multitude of classes, there is going to be trouble. Also, once again apologies for doubting your realness.
  14. http://pastebin.com/LGTPQuRQ This should be good enough to get the file back up.
  15. Fire Emblem Anniversary Game Concept

    This would be very fun, but there would be an issue as most Lord units use swords. I assume throwing in fan favorites would compensate. This game should be properly made, however, with a lot of cinematics, one-on-one duels, and epic sequences. Yeah, one-on-one duels. It would be really awesome if there was a slight integration which made one-on-ones more involved then just staring and hoping for RNG, like button sequences to set off abilities or the like. Final Fantasy did this amazingly two times, Dissidia, and Record Keeper, neither of which are turn-based but still are great games, draw some inspiration from there. Also, if you are a real person, I apologize, but be aware that you, PranksterDragon, have made a grand total of one topic, so you look like either Nintendo, or a joke I am only posting this because Nintendo recently took interest in Midnight Sun, so I assume they are monitoring this site, and hopefully will take note of this. *cough*
