  1. Fire Emblem: Ascension

    Small change update here. Someone brought to my attention that I was using the wrong pronouns for Chester. If you look at the Chapter 8 script and Chester and Palin's artwork on DeviantArt, I've fixed this. I also changed Palin's hair color so that he looks less like Oswin. ...Yeah. Not sure what I was thinking there.

    Nice to meet you!

    Derrick does have a horse. Vandals really are just Warriors with horses and different base classes to promote from. Derrick, for example, would originally have been a Bow Cavalier.
  4. Fire Emblem: Ascension Feedback

    Warriors have been replaced by Vandals, a promotion for Axe and Bow Cavaliers. This is what Derrick starts as.
  5. How Can Roy Be Made Better?

    Yes. Before he promotes, at least.

    That’s right. The Amazons in this game are a tribe of all-female barbarians who attack civilized villages and kidnap and enslave their menfolk (make of this what you will). Elma can also promote to Berserker, but I honestly think Hero might be a better option for her for its superior SKL (for Sol triggers) and defenses.
  7. The problem with direct Speed minus Weight?

    I did come up with a solution to the weight problem that compromises between Awakening and Fates's weightless systems and the Speed minus Weight system that I'm using in my project. Basically, Swords, Lances, and Axes still have their traditional weight differences, but these are less severe. For example, a Bronze Sword has 2 Weight, a Bronze Lance has 3 Weight, and a Bronze Axe has 4 Weight. You can see more examples in this spreadsheet.

    Granted, but now it's incredibly awkward when the evil Gharnef character has to use Thunder magic. I wish the next final boss isn't a dragon or related to one in any way.

    I addressed Chester as “she” because I was writing with a very technical mindset and didn’t want to confuse anyone. But perhaps your suggestion has some merit. At the very least I intend for her fellow Diehards to still address her with masculine pronouns in her Supports. It is worth noting that Chester can only S-Support either a female Avatar or Fatima, a Dancer you recruit in Chapter 9 and must protect for that chapter and the next. Damien, who becomes your Transporter at the end of Chapter 8 (the one you just read), is gay and can only S-Support either a male Avatar or Lee. Quixana can S-Support Dolcinee, but he can also S-Support Rosa, a female Avatar, or a recruitable Berserker boss named Hippolyta whom you recruit by defeating her in Chapter 11x.

    After the war, Kellam's exploits are recorded in a book ...which conveniently gets destroyed in a fire, so nobody remembers him. I wish Hector would get a Heroes alt that wasn't just another Axe Knight.
  11. Fire Emblem: Ascension Feedback

    Jake and Anna start as a Fighter and a Thief, respectively. However, when you eventually recruit them, they are already promoted to Hero and Rogue, respectively. Again, Carol’s father is named Derrick, not Garrett, lol. Barrett... He’s not right in the head. He is bloodthirsty, but he also wanted to make himself more famous by raising the second coming of Shanty Pete. And he’s more than happy to be killed in battle.

    You can also have negative AS in FE4, which is another can of worms entirely.
  13. The problem with direct Speed minus Weight?

    Funny. I thought the best stat was supposed to be Movement? Either way, since I haven't played the Tellius games and it's been too long since I've played Shadow Dragon (I lost my copy along with numerous other DS games), I can't comment on the Speed minus (Weight minus Strength) system. But it sounds weird to me because if you have enough Strength to wield, say, a Steel Axe with no penalty, you can both do very high damage AND have an easier time doubling with it. That sounds frightening.

    Norne gets in the game, but gets an underwhelming weapon and is put on a banner not unlike the one Ayra was introduced through. I wish that Axes get significantly buffed when Genealogy of the Holy War gets remade.
  15. Speaking strictly from a combat perspective, I used to like the idea of Constitution, but the more I thought about it, I figured all it really did in the long run was encourage unneeded designer favoritism and give certain units unfair advantages. So I did away with it as I began initial work on my Fire Emblem: Ascension project deciding which mechanics I wanted to include and which ones I needed to leave out, and instead used the original Speed minus Weight system seen in the first few games. Honestly, I enjoy using this system far more, as it not only makes balancing class/unit stats easier, but also encourages more fair choices for unit design. (Plus, it actually makes Slim weapons a lot better/less redundant since literally everybody has an easier time double-attacking with them!) However, I don't see as many supporters of direct Speed minus Weight as I would think. There must be some problem with it, in that case. So what is it?
