  1. Did sea levels recede between FE1/2/3 and this game?

    My headcanon is Grima's rampage that the first Exalt stopped is the cataclysm that changed everything.
  2. Ok. Orange/Red haired girl who is highly aggressive, a famously bad attitude, bratty tendencies and somehow manages both a superiority and inferiority complex at the same time that causes her to become extremely reckless? Yeah, Severa's no Asuka expy at all. Nope, they're nothing alike. Truth be told, Severa is just Asuka if she weren't a main character who the narrative revolved a significant part around.
  3. Which version? The Asuka expies like Severa, or the ones more like Lethe?
  4. A cameo from the older Fates siblings and Elise in some fashion, with a joke being told at Takumi's expense. At least one Tsundere character, either of the Lethe variety or the Severa variety. One of the knights is super serious and the other is SUUUUPER LOOUUUUD! Some throwaway NPC double-crosses the heroes and soon after is a greasy smear on the ground; nonetheless this event has ramifications for a significant part of the game. A true Nabarl/Navarre archetype which has been missing from Fates and Awakening. A gimmicky "hub" where units can be interacted with. Bandits involved in the slave trade; someone will be recruitable in this chapter. Maggie and Rose are even more flamboyant than ever. Did we really have this in Fates? Rhajat is just a Tharja clone, but is much more fun, and she LARPs the "evil witch in the woods" gimmick while Tharja actually is that witch. Nyx had a lot of depth, but was she really that popular?
  5. Characters you wish you could recruit?

    Nedata from FE9. I'm a big fan of the Berserker class in general, and Largo's not great. I've yet to have a playthrough where Boyd doesn't completely outclass him as an axe user. Lloyd or Linus in FE7; Lloyd more, because he's more sensible. That being said....How did they manage to make him look so hideous in Heroes!?
  6. Best FE dad?

    Going to agree. Big man, big family, farmer, raised at least one good natured kid. She might be persistent, but she's apple-pie sweet.
  7. I'm giving this a look, because I kind of like Tiki's older self where I wasn't the hugest fan of young Tiki. There are a few things about what she said regarding how she thought of Marth that made me pause; namely, she says in her A support with Nah: Nah: Did you love him? King Marth, I mean? Tiki: He was human. I was manakete. The gulf between us was too great. She doesn't mention Caeda, the woman Marth married. This is denial; she never got over him, and her reasoning here is BS. Nah's very existence invalidates it, and it's actually a wonder that the surprisingly mature Nah doesn't call her out here, though that might be because of respect. Her attaching to Robin is actually quite interesting, and makes for some neat storytelling. It's not quite Aragorn/Arwen, but there is an interesting implication regarding long-lived people falling in love with short-lived peoples. My personal M!Robin favorite pairing, however, is with Lucina. This is largely because of the story implications, and the confrontation scene. As for the rest of the children, Fates has spoiled me of any pairings involving Inigo, Severa, and Owain. I have a hard time pairing Severa/Selena with anyone other than Tsubaki because it's the only way her inferiority complex gets resolved, Inigo/Laslow with anyone other than Peri because he's the only one who manages to make a good person of her. For Owain/Odin I don't have a pairing I particularly like, beyond simply Ophelia existing.
  8. Possible Lore Explanation for Nowi's Outfit?

    This would depend on a few things. It's possible that she wasn't even on Ylisse or Valm at the time. However, I get the feeling that the battle between the First Exalt and Grima was extremely destructive and extremely desperate; The Creation was created in what is now Regna Ferox, and somehow he ended up in Plegia. It's also notable that the landscape has changed QUITE A LOT in both Valm and Ylisse from its days as Valentia and Archanea. Either the world has had some pretty wicked tectonics and weather to change so much, or Grima was absolutely ruinous when he was unleashed. Given Lucina's overwhelming desperation to see him never resurrect, I have to wonder just how bad it really got before Grima fell.
  9. Possible Lore Explanation for Nowi's Outfit?

    I'm a bit late to this conversation, but I've never given Nowi much of a look until my most recent playthrough. What I've found, at least to me, is that Nowi's childish antics are, by and large, an act to a certain degree. Some of her most childish actions almost certainly are by her own admission to Nah in their C support. That being said, she is a genuinely optimistic and upbeat person. Have a look at Nowi and Tiki's Harvest Scramble conversation; Nowi manages to completely destroy Tiki's bitter and lonely fatalism by simply offering her opinion. look at the state Tiki is left in after that first conversation. Nowi knows EXACTLY what she is doing, which is why she gets worried when Tiki starts crying. She is MUCH wiser than she lets on. As far as her outfit goes - I think she's aware of the implications but doesn't care, because really, who's going to question the clothing choices of a dragon? Tiki even wonders here, and Nowi dismisses it out of hand. Nowi is interesting. If you go through her supports remembering that she is over a thousand years old - meaning, she may, or may not have been alive for the battle against Grima by the first exalt, then Nowi's rather pointed observations make quite a bit of sense.
  10. One of my favorite supports is a rather mundane one: M!Robin and Lucina's A support. It's a beautiful support, and even more romantic than their S support (Lucina ruins it with her wooden dialogue). It also has a tremendous amount of story relevance. ANY conversation where Severa shows us the dere instead of her otherwise ever-present tsun. I enjoy seeing Inigo outmaneuver her in their S-support.
  11. In defense of Peri

    Peri is an interesting character poorly implimented. There are ways of bettering her, and really the only one who pulls it off well is Laslow. That being said, why does Laslow just seem to make better people of almost EVERYONE he interacts with? Including Peri. Holy crap, he manages to nearly 180 her to the point where Peri worries about Soleil in one of the DLC maps. He does something similar to Nyx. Heck, he ropes even the stoic Azura into being a bit more free-spirited, and helps Felicia to be a bit less awkward. Laslow, man. The guy that everyone just seems to build off of.
  12. Most attractive Fire Emblem Awakening Poll

    Males: I just picked Chrom. I'm largely indifferent. Females: I think the only reason Tharja doesn't hit the top of this list is because people are a bit jaded about the fact that she's so fanservicey. But Tharja hits the top of MY list, fanservice be damned, she's an attractive one. Second is Severa, because dammit I am a sucker for the Tsundere trope. It's the whole reason Lethe is my favorite character in Path of Radiance. I don't like Cordelia. Not really sure why. I think it's because her sprite artwork in Awakening is awful in my opinion. And it doesn't get any better with Caeldori in Fates. Her regular artwork and Warriors design are absolutely fantastic, but I just do not like her sprites. For everyone else? I'm largely indifferent.
  13. Opinions on Camilla

    That's part of the issue. Camilla has really severe separation issues, which is one of the reasons I like the potential she had. I don't hate her, though. In fact, she's one of my favorite characters. Hinoka, Rhajat, Camilla, Nyx, and Selena being my top 5 among the ladies in that order. This is an interchangeable list, as both Peri and Rinkah have been on it. I just wish that, instead of the supports they gave Camilla with Corrin, they could've focused on her backstory, which would have given Corrin a legit reason to hook up with her. Corrin's a bit like Robin before him in that he has a lot of empathy, and there are ways to play that up.
  14. Did overambition kill this game?

    Yeah but Camilla in particular needs a bit more emphasis on her past than she got with Niles.
