    Smash
  1. And I'd say that is merely one possibility. "Some illness" makes me think there are a variety of different things that can happen, and since it's "mind or body" we have two different things already. It's a good point that, in this case, their strength won't just vanish immediately (when the class-change happens). But long-term... First of all, maybe some people will keep training during their normal-village-life, or at least their job might be physically demanding--in which case, stats stay the same. However, if they don't want to fight anymore they might not want to train anymore either. For a while, at least. If you don't train for a month or two you lose muscle. Strength stat down, gonna have to build it up again. There is no indication of that in gameplay. And how do you properly implement that without making it even more ridiculously convoluted than this off-hand explanation from an artbook? I'm getting irritated at myself for spending so much time thinking about this...
  2. Point. And they actually gain a point of hp when returning to the villager class! I'm going to cop-out and leave it at gameplay-story segregation, because it's a pain in the ass to lose stats. Awakening did it, it's doable, but a pain nonetheless.
  3. It's a different type of control over magic. Dread fighters aren't slinging spells, it's more like protective magic. Internal rather than external. Black magic attack spells require intense effort and concentration to release that energy from your body (equating to hp loss, aka stamina) but if black magic is used "internally"--the target is yourself rather than an external target--it doesn't require that release, thus no hp loss. However, it is magic nonetheless and does eventually take its toll. Just not immediately. Sort of like stress; it piles up and piles up, wearing you down, and eventually breaks you if you don't de-stress. Whereas normal black magic spells (and white magic spells) take an immediate toll which causes you to need a break right then and there, as though you just ran a long ways and need to catch your breath; you'll be completely fine soon enough. @bolded: Look at it this way: dread fighters are constantly under the influence of black magic--they do not have any break from it and cannot rest up, unlike a mage. Like I said, stress piles up. The description does say "some illness of the mind or body". At a certain point they simply can fight no longer. They need a break, either because their body isn't working well or because they are mentally exhausted and just can't do it anymore (depression might be one such "illness"). But after a respite from the influence of that magic they feel better and can fight again. I would guess it depends on the person's constitution and mental fortitude as to whether they're affected physically or mentally. ...But there are some people who have enough resilience that they aren't affected...much. And it depends on how much fighting you do--utilizing those abilities wears you down faster. Why am I passing this off as though I know all the details?
  4. Mistakes or errors on the site 2

    https://serenesforest.net/fire-emblem-echoes-shadows-valentia/miscellaneous/item-locations/ Zofia Harbor, at the entrance, there is an orange as well as that coral fragment. It's sitting on the "market".
  5. Once again, I can't edit my post... For such a tiny bit of information... /sigh We have a w in Gwydion. And the "x" in "Ox" is one of these missing letters; it's nothing like any other letters we have (it looks similar to a p but it curves the opposite direction). I'd like to keep thinking the lowercase letters, at least, don't have variants. xD Everything else lines up with what I also am missing in my makeshift alphabet reference. ...What if "Ox" is Qq, oh man.
  6. I recommend you take a gander at this map: I see it as Kupala. Matthaus. It's definitely an M. Magdred, most likely Lamir Alianrhod, that wasn't so easy to pick out Flurdarius, best guess Still looks like Conan. M_rc_as, Merceas? Mercoas? Morceas? The second letter looks too round for an o, ironicly. Blamass? It looks like a messy B to me, but who knows. YOU'VE GOTTA BE KIDDING, IS THAT MORGAN?! ........ It's Morgan. Oi... There is one more: _aphn_l (Right above the L of Leicester. Baphnel? Daphnel? Could be an O or a P.) I understand now. Thanks! I find it very strange that there are two drastically different styles of M's. Look how tiny Morgan is, with the proper M, but Mylddin has a simpler M? It baffles me. All this thinking...and then we'll get localization changes. We already have one: Fodra->Fodlan. Le sigh...
  7. Is the "new" GameCube controller adapter the same as the WiiU adapter? Will I be able to use my WiiU adapter on the Switch?
  8. I can't edit my post... Wait, I knew I've seen these letters before: " The letters J, K, Q, V, W, X, Y, and Z are not included in the Gaelic alphabet, but are sometimes found in borrowed words." We have a W in "Western Seirios", but other than that I don't think it's used. So does that mean anything for Vergilius and VĂ¡li? I'm reaching a bit, aren't I? There are other, non-Gaelic/Celtic references... Not to mention I was only talking about capital letters at the time, whoops. Look what I found. Toutatis, not Toutatia. I found Conan.
  9. I love that the map is handwritten with such an extravagant letter style. Lot of love went into this, huh? But damn does it ever make it hard to decipher the letters. xD Hell, the three e's in Leicester are all slightly different from each other! Yay handwritten~ Yummy. Much love. How has no one mentioned "Ox"? I'd say Clayman, though it almost looks like that n at the end has a longer tail than most other n's. It's more...rounded out the bottom. There's definitely a tail going upward on the last letter, but I can't figure out what letter it's supposed to be... It has another tail sticking out the side rather than the bottom like an a and it does not look like the other a in this same name. Compare. These two maps are what I'm using to try to decipher the letters, as they are the highest quality I've found. And they give two different perspectives, hurrah! Curious about Taillteann "Taitean" right below Blaidad's symbol. According to Toutatia and Threne...that is not a capital T. What is that letter? F is used... What do we NOT have for capital letters... Assuming "Ox" is what it is, we have an O. So that leaves: i, J, K, Q, U, X, Y, Z. Hmm. ...Assuming Toutatia and Threne are actually T's, heheh.
  10. I am assuming Palmira is Daein because of the mountain range, which means Leicester is northern Begnion. ...Then again, there is a mountain range northeast of Daein, so maybe the mountains south of Daein disappeared? Or appeared, depending which came first. Agh, why am I still thinking about this?
  11. So. Nintendo's E3 sale. "Games with Super Smash Bros. characters" ->Echoes Is that just because it's Fire Emblem, or because you can use amiibo, or...?! Wishful thinking. Speaking of Echoes... "Echo fighters". I'm too easily amused, sometimes. For the fourth time, Smash is making me buy a Nintendo console. I had no interest in the Switch until now. I wasn't even too interested in finding out about this new Smash. But after finding out that everyone is back... I won't be disappointed by cuts like Brawl and initial SSB4. \o/
  12. The eyes terrify me. Edelgard is awful. Mostly it's the girls' eyes that are just...wrong. Claude's eyes seem okay to my aesthetic sense. Can't pay attention to anything else (like outfits) because of those godawful eyes freaking me the hell out.
  13. Unless the continents shifted in relation to the poles. Dunno how a continent could "spin", though... Or maybe something crazy caused the north and south poles to reverse. The Ending Winter reversed the seasons; maybe something could reverse a planet's polarity. These are my arguments for Tellius=Jugdral. My point is, there are possibilities no matter how wild. Are they likely? ...I'd say not very. @topic: If you turn Fodlan upside-down, it very loosely resembles Isaac in Jugdral. Actually, there are two ways to line it up. Alternatively... Un-rotated (well actually about 30 degrees rotation), Fodlan could also EXTREMELY LOOSELY resemble Tellius: Blaidad is to the east of Melior, Clayman(?) is Canteus, and then...the outcropping that Tatana is on got shaved off the coastline; in the south, we have the outcropping that Enbavo(?) is on being Kilvas&the unnamed island broken off the mainland. But. There are too many other things on the coast lines that don't line up--mainly the northeast corner, where'd all the water come from/go to? Theeeen there's the mountain ranges. Right down the middle of Fodlan, whereas in Tellius they are definitely off to the west. ...Unless Morpheus split off of Begnion? But that's backwards to Kilvas splitting off. ...That does it! I'm done with this. ...Or...not. Wait. This is adding to my Tellius=Jugdral theory... ...Guys, put me out of my misery.
