  1. Regarding the Sanaki controversy.

    Not to mention the fact a bride inevitably links back to certain acts that a swimsuit doesn't. Anyone who thinks a kid in a swimsuit is sexualized as opposed to ready for the beach is either grasping at straws or worse. People who see a child in a wedding dress and think of child brides have a legitimate gripe.
  2. The fashion of Fire Emblem

    Camilla's easily explained. She has trouble finding armor that doesn't constrict her bust, or she's very obviously trying to seduce Corrin to the dark side. As for her riding boots but lack of pants, I try to think it's like when cowboys used to wear "assless" chaps. You know, they cover the legs but aren't joined at the crotch so they protect the legs while riding but don't tear from the mount. At least, that's as much rationalization as I can do, even if there are holes in the notion.
  3. Weird/Unusual Boss Ideas

    A character who appears to be a generic early game bandit boss, but he survives his defeat offscreen and randomly comes back and kills the dragon you thought was the final boss then takes over the battle.

    ...RNGesus to give him a critical hit to end all critical hits. The critical hit landed with the force of a thousand exploding suns and vapourized the entirety of Philadelphia, where the battle was inexplicably taking place for some reason. However it was discovered as a result of this blow, the entire planet had been knocked out of orbit and was heading towards...
  6. Rezzy Tries to Ironman FE Fates: Conquest

    One does have to wonder why Shura's boots and the pilfered gold just disappear after you recruit Shura. Might I recommend a cavity search? Or don't you want it back that badly? I know Selena is likely to win her position off the bench, but I can't help but think Peri could do with having one of her only good supports used. Which is weird because I don't like Peri.

    ... a field of dry long grass next to a rural fire station (much like a recent incident here). However, their fun was spoiled by the fact the response time was pretty short. Disheartened by their failure, they decided to target something no one would care about. Perhaps a stack of copies of...
  8. How to Handle Character Flaws?

    There's no such thing as a solution that'll please everyone. That's the problem. Everyone listed has flaws. Marth's own sister referred to him as a weak, idealistic child. Roy, despite being a skilled tactician wasn't much of a unit. Seliph was vengeful (though perhaps justified). Ephraim hot-headed. Alm was ignorant of the workings of the world beyond Ram Village. Ike left Tellius without explanation. One could argue any given path in Fates is a result of Corrin's flaws. It's just these flaws are significantly overshadowed by their positive points (in my opinion). I feel that if any of the flaws were allowed to significantly impact the games story, they get criticized, and if they don't they get over-looked. If Ephraim's hotheadedness caused him to blunder into difficult maps through his route, you can bet you'd hear about it. Fact is you can't please everyone.
  9. Isn't the point of a hookup to get them out of their clothes though? To be fair, if they died it'd only save Zephiel killing them later. Meaning even when Zephiels army sustain heavy losses they move towards their goal. I'm of the opinion Saul is incapable of dying due to belief "The Good Die Young", and that's why he inevitably avoided being Brave Axed. This applies to all his past close calls. He's like a stain too stubborn to be removed. Personally, I would've made the guy an extremely paranoid, panicky foe. Then he could have been a "Nervous Tick". His stupid name becomes a bad pun. He gets a personality that's based off it. You know, I do have to wonder. Is it Bern's tradition to bury their dead royalty with weapons, or should the sword have been a giveaway? Maybe Zephiel was just considered brilliant as a pupil because his father's stupidity set the bar low regarding Bern's royalty. Really low.

  12. Good to know. I think I'll be doing my last run through of Lyn mode using this strategy. I'm not big on RNG manipulation usually because I enjoy adjusting my strategies based off unexpected things, but given the fact Lyn mode kind of drags on with weak enemies to the end and has to be played through if you want to get 19XX.... well, it gets on ones nerves over time.
  13. Thanks for this. I've played Lyn mode enough times I'm sick of doing so, so I was planning to just keep a file saved at chapter 10 so I could play the last chapter and skip the rest. Now I can not only do that, but do it without worrying I'll get RNG screwed getting there. Just wondering though, does the RNG alter when the system is turned off? Because it might be awkward to do on a legit cart if so.
  14. I no longer know if the Sacae route is actually Sacae at this stage, or just Moonside pretending to be Sacae.
  15. Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer

    Because if you bury it in front of a dog, they will dig it up. Is the reason @eclipse is named after a dark magic siege tome because her ban hammer can hit you from quite a distance, is more likely to hit you if you've done something wrong, and hits hard when it does connect?
