  1. Hello guys, I just finished path of radiance and I'm really torn up to what to play next. Sacred stones(or other gba FE), Shadow Dragon (with gaiden chapters patched), holy war or Shadows of Valentia? P.S. Besides P.O.R. I've only played awakening, fates and half of every gba title (a long time ago).
  2. I did see some game companies were bundling a bunch of classic and nearly classic games and porting to modern consoles as Collections like the Mega Man Legacy Collection series, Street Fighter Collection, Capcom Beat Em Up Collection, Sega Ages, The Legend of Zelda Collector's Edition, and much more. So what do you guys think if Nintendo and Intelligent Systems did the same by putting all the classic Fire Emblem titles into a big bundle as Fire Emblem Collection or whether might they call it? Do you guys think the NES + SNES titles might be in Collection 1, the GBA + Tellius titles will be in Collection 2, and Collection 3 might put the Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS titles. Or do you guys think the Nintendo DS titles should be bundled to Collection 2 and save the Nintendo 3DS games for a later time after Collection 2 releases? I know that Nintendo did add Nintendo DS games to the Wii U Virtual Console. And plus, they might put amiibo support with the Fire Emblem characters to do new challenges in the Fire Emblem Collection similar to the Mega Man amiibo on the Mega Man Legacy Collection. I'm not saying this will most likely happen to be on Nintendo Switch. I'm just wondering how would this work as a big Bundle Collection game? Just post your thoughts about which games might be included? I'm pretty sure the Collection 2 might have the GBA, Tellius, and NDS titles will most likely be released outside of Japan, but I possibly think the Collection 1 might be going to be Japan-only since the original NES and SNES titles weren't released outside of Japan. (I don't know if they can get Treehouse, 8-4, or another localization team to do the entire text from The Binding Blade and New Mystery of the Emblem if Intelligence System puts those two in Collection 2 since those were the only non NES and SNES titles that weren't released outside of Japan)
  3. Hey guys !

    Hello, I'm glad to be here ! I'm a great fan of FE series and I like a lot the work of this site ! So, I decided to sign up here for help if I can. I've played at ALL FE games (excepted 1,2 and 3 but I've played at their remakes so it's the same thing lol). My Favourite FE is Path of Radiance, Ranulf top tier ! My pseudo is a popular French joke, you have it ? I hope we will get along well ! Have a nice day
  4. Fire Emblem Stratego

    I really liked both Fire Emblem & Stratego. When we were a child, a friend & I made Stratego with Fire Emblem characters. Unfortunately, I don't have any physical pieces left of the game, but I still have a list of ranks of the characters. It's only a list with Tellius characters though. I tried to make the list as canonical as possible (With a little bias). I also tried to fit teams in 1 rank. All non-royal beast are 'Miners / Sappers' Additional rules (to make the game more special): -Weapon triangle When the number is the same, but the weapon varies, the character with the weapon advantage wins. -Support When your character is next to another character with the same affinity (for example, Greil Mercenaries: Shinon & Gatrie. Or for example, Royal Guards: Kieran & Geoffrey), the character receives +1 bonus. Feel free to command if you don't agree with the list :) And feel free to make your own list of a Fire Emblem game! Whether it's Shadow Dragon, Awakening , Radiant Dawn or a whole other Fire Emblem game.

  6. Unbreakable Weapons in FE9?

    Greetings to all. I have been tinkering around with the weapon stats for FE9 in the system.cmp file using a hex editor, and I was wondering how to make weapons unbreakable. Is it a property stored with weapon data, as in the GBA games, that can be easily edited? Thus far, I haven't been able to find anything that all unbreakable weapons in the base game share.
  7. Welcome to my third character analysis! I've already done a Tauroneo and Micaiah character analysis and this time we'll be taking a look at Kurthnaga, who is easily my favourite dragon in the series, bar none and my third favourite character in all of Fire Emblem! Path of Radiance When Ike's ship crashes to the Goldoan shore, he gets out and angers a bunch of dragons. The dragons are about to kill him but fortunately, Kurthnaga, prince of the dragon tribes, stops them and promises to help move the ship. This shows Kurthnaga's empathetic nature. Also, Ike talked to Kurthnaga as if he were a simple commoner which shocked him but due to his humbleness it was of no problem to him. Also, we see that Kurthnaga is very much into diplomacy as he promises to convince his father to reprimand Kilvas. Kurthnaga also provided Ike with supplies on top of freeing his ship which shows his generosity. Furthermore, Kurthnaga would like to offer a whole feast but he can't because his father prefers isolation. This shows us that Kurthnaga's character conflict is respecting his father's decree VS his own generous nature. Basically he has to strike a balance which he does in this scene. Kurthnaga's complaints were brought forward by his father in the Laguz Royals meeting which shows just how much clout Kurthnaga has as this is a very important meeting and influences the geopolitics of Tellius. Also, Kurthnaga had a profound impact on Ike's character development in Path of Radiance as seeing his courtesy convinced Ike that the Goldoan Dragons are honorable but was conflicted how both dragons and the bird tribes be both laguz because before meeting these two tribes, Ike had only known the Gallian beast tribes so he naively assumed all Laguz are good. Basically Ike's perspective on good vs evil evolves after his meeting with Kurthnaga and realizes he can't equate the actions of a few with an entire species. Radiant Dawn Part 1 Kurthnaga comes to Daein to meet up with Almedha, his long lost sister but ends up getting captured by the Begnion occupation forces. While in prison, he once again shows us his empathetic nature by giving olvi grass to stop Micaiah's bleeding. So basically in his first appearance in both games, he has the honour of helping out the protagonist when they are in a bind. Also Aimee points out that Kurthnaga is a quiet person which confirms he's very introverted, much like Micaiah. It's no question why I like both these characters when they share many similarities. The game basically hammers the similarities between them even further in a base conversation. Kurthnaga has secrets, desires privacy, is kind/gentle and loves to feel the wind. Hmm I wonder who else is like that. Anyway this base conversation reveals to us that Kurthnaga loves nature and is very inquisitive when it comes to making observations. He'd make a great explorer or even a scientist. Finally we see that Kurthaga wanted to communicate with Almedha hence he gives her a sending stone. After seeing so many similarities between Kurthnaga and Micaiah, we finally see that the two have differing worldviews. Kurthnaga uses quotation marks to describe the liberation army which goes to show he does not believe in the use of force as a valid means of liberating a country. From this conversation it is quite clear that Kurthnaga is a pacifist and influenced by the teachings of Deghinsea. While similar in temperament, it makes sense why their political views are so different, Micaiah is raised up in a militaristic country so despite her gentle nature, it makes sense that she's no pacifist. Also, this base conversation showcases his intelligent and shrewd mind. He managed to predict what Micaiah was about to say before she even said it and read her feelings like a book. Kurthnaga may not have the mind reading abilities that Micaiah has but his sharpness allows him to do just that. Despite not approving of Micaiah's actions, he gives her the renewal scroll showing us how compassionate he is. Once again we see Kurthnaga balancing his pacifist mindset with his empathetic mindset. Also this base conversation is proof that Micaiah is not a Mary Sue, not even in part one. Mary Sues make other characters act out of character just to make the Mary Sue look good. If Micaiah were a true Mary Sue, Kurthnaga would have changed his beliefs on the spot and supported Micaiah with zero hesitation which wouldn't have been difficult to write considering how similar the two are and the fact Kurthnaga sees Begnion's oppression first hand. Finally, we see that Kurthnaga's character flaw is that he gets scared near a battlefield. I can relate to that as someone who is living in a land without war and can get frightened if I'm too close to fireworks, let alone an explosion. Part 3 Almedha messages Kurthnaga and asks him to save his son. Kurthnaga now has to make a difficult choice much like Rajaion did long ago. He shows that he can be very deceptive considering his explanation for being out late in the night makes sense given that he loves to look at nature and he didn't lie either because he was also doing that in the cutscene. When the Daein army has pretty much collapsed, Kurthnaga shows up in the moment of truth and makes a pretty badass entrance showing us the power of the Goldoan dragons and why their power is feared. His power was so immense that the entire Laguz Alliance is forced to fall back. There are plenty of powerful dragons in the series but other than Deghinsea and the dragon gods, Kurthnaga might be the most powerful because while armies lead by various lords like Marth and Roy have fought plenty of dragons, none of their armies were forced to fall back at the sight of just one dragon and I reckon Ike's army is a lot stronger. Just look at Tibarn, an extremely brave and powerful guy who went toe to toe with Zelgius, yet even he started freaking out at the sight of Kurthnaga and we all know how powerful Zelgius is. Being able to casually destroy a massive fortress is no small feat because defensive buildings take a lot of time to construct and are very valuable for defensive warfare and a pain to lay siege to but if you have Kurthnaga on your side, he can just casually wipe out a fortress that was able to fit 10000 soldiers. That's totally broken. Seriously, who needs a lot of military equipment, strategies/tactics, charisma, dedication and time when you can just wipe out armies and their infrastructure with ease? Also, Kurthnaga's entrance hypes up Deghinsea because unlike his son, Deghinsea is a lot older, bigger and has actual combat experience so when you confront him in the endgame, the player can feel the dread of having to fight none other than the legendary King of Dragons. Kurthnaga's initial intentions with the use of force was to stop the fighting so that the two sides can have a ceasefire followed by peace talks. So we see that Kurthnaga is sticking to Deghinsea's pacifist ideals but unlike his father, Kurthnaga is now starting to embrace the use of force for the greater good. Basically we see Kurthnaga's beliefs evolve from someone who didn't believe in the use of force at all to someone who believes it can be justified when it can stop additional bloodshed. When Micaiah spills the beans to Kurthnaga, she requests Almedha to give more information on the blood pact but if Pelleas dies Almedha refuses to do so as she's depressed. Kurthnaga shows us his charisma by convincing the sullen and stubborn Almedha to stop keeping secrets and to calm down. Once again Kurthnaga shows us his intelligence when he figures out that Pelleas doesn't have to die to break the blood pact and instead they can track down the Senator instead because it takes two people to make a contract. Anyhow from this point on, Kurthnaga is no longer the peaceful arbitrator we once knew him as. He has decided to fight on Daein's side for the sake of his sister and nephew. His meeting with Almedha ended up developing both their characters because Kurthnaga is no longer the pacifist that we once knew and Almedha has become an apologetic individual even though before she was quite proud and arrogant. The Daein army no longer has the defensive positions of castle Nox and even with those, they were hopelessly outmatched but with Kurtnaga and Nailah supporting the Daein army, the Daein army can still fight on even when Micaiah leaves the battlefield which goes to show just how powerful Kurthnaga is which is further compounded by the fact that Nailah, the other powerhouse keeping Daein afloat, hypes him up without bringing up her own power level. Nailah, like Tibarn, is pretty cocky, so it goes to show that Kurthnaga was more essential to the Daein Army's survival than Nailah herself. Despite Kurthnaga's resolve, his nonviolent nature still shows on the battlefield where he shows a lot of hesitation and is clearly an emotional train-wreck but despite that, his power keeps the Daein Army from collapsing. Part 4 Despite not having any experience with how armies function, Kurthnaga was thoughtful enough to suggest giving the sending stones to the herons so that all three armies can communicate. After going through the ordeal of fighting a battle, Kurthnaga is traumatized and unable to participate in the next two battles. As a matter of fact, he's so scared of blood that he can't talk to Ike until he puts down his bloodied sword. So while Kurthnaga makes an effort to become braver in part three, it resulted in him becoming even more frightened. In Kurthnaga's conversation with Ike, we learn that he's interested in reading books which makes sense because he's very intelligent and a deep thinker. Finally, we see some more development from Kurthnaga when he feels better after the conversation with Ike. Kurthnaga is quite the secretive introvert but he finally realizes that talking to people about his own problems is better than leaving them concealed. Endgame Kurthnaga has to come to terms with the fact he'll be fighting his own father and the rest of his tribe even though before endgame he was too frightened to even be near a battle. He has once again gained the resolve he temporarily gained at the end of part three but this time it is permanent and far greater than before. Meanwhile, he also learns more about his father and ends up respecting him even more which makes it even more painful to confront his father but commits himself regardless. Also, unlike Sanaki, who wasn't able to accept that Sephiran was on Ashera's side until he revealed his plans, Kurthnaga doesn't try to make excuses about his father and interrogates Nasir about why his father has joined Ashera even before Nasir reveals to him the purpose of his visit. This goes to show he isn't naive and can see the unfortunate reality with clarity without emotions clouding his judgement. He can put the pieces together by himself without it having to be spelled out. Granted, Kurthnaga hoped that his father could be talked out of fighting on Ashera's side but his hope wasn't inherently wrong because after being defeated in the fight, Deghinsea ended up agreeing that Ashera must be stopped. Deghinsea was just being stubborn and his defeat humbled him enough to listen to reason. Kurthnaga is willing to accept punishment for his actions in part 3 which goes to show his selflessness as well as regret for breaking Goldoa's neutrality. Yet of course, he can't allow the innocent to get punished for the crimes of a few. After being made king of the dragon tribes and after a history lesson by Gareth and Nasir, Kurthnaga becomes firm in his convictions and has no regrets at this point. He has also increased in his respect for his father despite seeing the flaws in his father's line of thinking. Furthermore, this base conversation once again shows us that Kurthnaga is good at second guessing what someone will say before they even say it. This is intellectually very impressive considering how this is the first time he's listening to this history lesson and how convoluted and hard to accept this story is. To this day I have a hard time wrapping around my head at the lore this game throws at you let alone being able to make sudden deductions the first time reading the script. In a talk conversation between Kurthnaga and Lehran, we learn that Kurthnaga was always fond of him even as an infant. An interesting observation I was able to pick up was that Kurthnaga's political ideology is a mixture of Lehran and Deghinsea. Basically Lehran is an internationalist and Deghinsea is an isolationist. Kurthnaga's actions throughout PoR and RD put him somewhere in the middle which makes me think that Kurthnaga was also influenced by Lehran in his infancy. Lastly, note that Ashera hypes Kurthnaga for being the strongest non divine being alive. This means Kurthnaga is stronger than Ike. Take that Ike fans. Epilogue Being true to his character, his ending has him maintain peace and arbitrate conflict. Quite a fitting end which stays true to both his character while respecting his father's legacy.
  8. Your favorite games.

    My favorites in the Fire Emblem series are. GBA: Elibe Saga. 2 Smash Characters: Telius Saga. 3DS: Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. (Finally playing it, and enjoying it so far.) Spinoff saga: Warriors. Past Titles: Genealogy of the Holy War.
  9. I was wondering if anyone here knew how to mod or use ar codes to change very specific things in path of radiance using dolphin. I was hoping to change values of weapons, which type of classes have certain skills, enemy ai, placing more enemies on the map with certain weapons. I was just wondering if those type of things were possible, and if so how difficult would they be.
  10. I really want to get started on the Tellius Series, but I just can't seem to find a FE9 rom anywhere. Anyone know where I can get one for Dolphin? I have Dolphin 5.0 if that helps.
  11. Hey everyone! This is Tenders from Games with Tenders, a YouTube channel dedicated to fire emblem. My first video went up today! I am doing an iron man run of PoR. Check it out!
  12. Remove Ike/Replace with Greil

    Okay, I've been messing around with the coding and easily found Greil's codes so to adjust his stats. With enemy controlled hack you can get him after chapter one. If you make it where his exp stays at 99 then he will class change into a ranger (Ike). I've been wanting to code it where Ike is more like a hero class like his father. You can set it up where Greil can seize and use Ragnell, but Ike just can't use axes, but can use fire, wind, and lightning magic. Has anyone found a way to either remove the "lord" title from ike so he can die and give it to someone else,Greil, so you can continue the game or at least get him to use an axe. I know it is minor, but it is really bugging me that Ike can use magic, but not an axe.
  13. Ilyana has always turned out better than Soren for me, and my most recent playthrough of POR has her at her best. These are her stats at level 20 Sage: HP: 43 STR: 11 MAG: 30 SKILL: 28 SPEED: 28 LUCK: 21 DEF: 9 RES: 28 As for stat boosters, I use 1 Magic Dust, 1 Skill Book, and 1 Speedwing. She had already capped RES a while ago, and all she needed was a few stat boosters to cap out MAG, SKILL, and SPEED and her STR means that she can use Thoron without any AS loss, and if I use my last Energy drop on her, she will only suffer 1 AS loss wielding Rexbolt. I was freaking blessed. I tried to use Soren, but dropped him after chapter 17 because he was becoming more and more useless. These are his level 1 bases: HP: 18 STR: 0 MAG: 6 SKILL: 8 SPEED: 8 LUCK: 5 DEF: 2 RES: 6 When I dropped him at a level 15 Mage, these were his stats: HP: 25 STR: 0 MAG: 8 SKILL: 17 SPEED: 11 LUCK: 12 DEF: 3 RES: 16 He has solid SKILL and RES, but he somehow only got 3 SPEED and 2 MAG stats after 14 level ups, which I don't understand at all because he has higher growths in both of those areas than Ilyana. I had to bench him because he stopped doing adequate damage and the "speedy mage" couldn't double for shit. As for how he was when I got Ilyana, his stats were either equal or slightly lower than Ilyana's when she joined at chapter 8. And this wasn't the first time I had to drop Soren. Though Ilyana wasn't as good as she is now, my previous two playthroughs of POR has me drop Soren for Ilyana because Ilyana kept surpassing Soren. Has anyone else experienced this?
  14. FE9 Modding?

    Resources on FE9 seem to be very hard to come by. Things I'm having trouble figuring out: - Army data. Everything seems so confusingly structured and I'm having a hard time changing what I want, let alone figuring out what value represents what. It seemed a lot easier in RD, but that might be because there's more / better resources for it. - Changing character availability. I can't seem to figure how how to, for example, make Shinon and Gatrie stay, or make Oscar available in chapters 3 and 4, or straight up make Tibarn playable from Chapter 3. How can I do these three things, while removing the ability to get them again later (or does that happen automatically)? (just as examples so I have a better idea of what I'm doing with this) - How would I go about enabling both the base menu (shops, award BEXP, etc) and the preparation menu (choose your units, reposition, etc) to chapters that they aren't in? Also, where are the best resources for learning to mod FE9? The best I can find is in VincentASM's FE10 modding tutorial (applying what I can to FE9, and some things in the comments, although any links to nightmare modules or anything like that no longer work). I'd appreciate any input / advice, thanks so much in advance.
  15. Hi there, I've been a fire emblem fan for over five years now, and have made my way through just about every entry in the series save gaiden and the tellius games. Now, most of you know that both Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn are the two most expensive and hard to find games in the series, not to mention that I don't have a WII or a PC capable of running the dolphin emulator. What I do have, however, is a kindle fire HD, that can run SNES and GBA emulators just fine, but is having issues running Dolphin. Well, not dolphin itself, rather Path of Radiance. See, the emulator runs just fine, but for some reason I can't get it to play Path of Radiance, because all I get is a black screen. Could someone help me out with this?
  16. Oh boy, here we go. Path of Radiance was a game in this series that I always really liked, but due to my poor handling of CDs as a kid I never had the chance to play through it fully beyond that first time years ago. Finally, I had the chance to play it again to refresh myself, and thought, "Wait, wasn't there supposed to be a super difficult Japanese exclusive mode never seen in the West?" Enter: Maniac Mode. In this first part, I do the first 3 maps of the game and we start to get a look at some of our units. Already I can feel some of the difficulty increase, but it's nothing too crazy just yet. On I side note, since I'm playing this in part to see if this game holds up after not touching it since 2005/2006, I have to say that I really like the strong sense of characterization your units get right off the bat. It's pretty coo'. I can't believe that I forgot to mention this, but if anyone interested in this wants to see a particular unit then go for it. I almost made this into a PMU, but like I say I haven't played this in years so I wanted to be able to at least use some units that would be guaranteed to be good. Pick Some of My Units doesn't have as nice a ring to it, but there ya go. I'll do me best to raise any requested character within reason. Except Boyd. Okay, yes, even Boyd.

  17. FE9 Hacking?

    Does a "hacking scene" for FE9 exist? Are there any half decent tools for hacking fe9? Are there any hacks out there? Edit: should put this somewhere more appropriate. Plz delete this mods
  18. Well first of all, HOLY CRAP!!!! I am absolutely in love with this game, I honestly think it might beat out Sacred Stones as my new favorite FE game. I had high expectations going in, given the amount of praise the Tellius games get, and I can say without any doubt that PoR deserves all of it. I loved how multi-dimensional the characters were, and I especially found the portrayal of Beorc-Laguz relations to be poignantly accurate. The gameplay was great as well, as it provided a challenge without constantly making me want to tear my eyes out. Things I liked/loved: The way that the game showed that there were good, innocent people on both sides of the conflict. Humanizing Daein not only makes Ashnard seem more evil, but it makes the war seem more realistic. Ike is my all time fave now because his character is 50% beating up racists and 50% pissing off idiot politicians by calling them on their BS. Soren's objectiveness is both infuriating and refreshing considering how many people have sudden cases of "idiot hero syndrome" throughout. I also really liked the way the game balanced Cavs and Paladins by only giving the former one weapon. It's something I'd like to see more of. Bonus EXP was great too. Things I disliked: I wish the Laguz units had been more viable but the transformation gauge made them into time bombs and I hated having to wait for them to transform before I could use them. If there had been more than one Demi Band it would have been fine honestly. Also, I HATE HATE HATE HATE the Black Knight battle with a burning passion!!!!!! Seriously the fact that I have to hope and pray that Ike's skill triggers and that BK's don't is such a pain. And I was unlucky as well, Ike constantly triggered Aether multiple times within a chapter for most of the game, but he gets to the BK? Nah bruh, I'm just gonna let him hit me. So I ended up escaping and getting stuck with Ena. I'm honestly tempted to replay the game JUST so I can do the fight properly and recruit Nasir. Also I'm really glad that I can go play Radiant Dawn now because theis games leaves a shit ton of plot threads open (which makes sense since apparently there was always a plan for a sequel). TL;DR: Everything was great except for Laguz units and CH 27.
  19. Hi guys! It's been a VERY long time since I've been to serenes forest and I've recently played both tellius games again. As a result, I've been able to pinpoint exactly what made the previous games so great from a story-standpoint...character development. Bare in mind these are just my opinions as I'm not claiming they're objectively good or even better than modern fire emblem...these are just my opinions. WARNING! I HAVEN'T YET PLAYED FATES (though I've seen a lot of it) SO THIS REALLY ONLY APPLIES TO AWAKENING! Elincia-in path of radiance she eventually gains the courage to fight on the battlefield and lead her country. In RD she is a first a weak and naive ruler who can't keep order as she's too caring for her own citizens. She learns the hard way through Ludveck that sometimes you have to sacrifice your own citizens to benefit the overall population (spend lives in order to avoid a bloody civil war). She becomes stronger in this way as a character. Shiharam-not only do I believe he's the best Camus in the franchise but the fact that they show you what the villagers and his own soldiers think of him makes his battle a very emotional one (as he was a valuable asset and a good friend to many people). I found that Mustafa in awakening pales by comparison as we don't get nearly as much information about him. Overall, while Shiharam didn't really get any development, I still cared a lot about him and was legitimately saddened when I had to kill him in PoR. The fact that you can have his own daughter kill him is pretty gruesome and the fact that the game takes the time to flesh out his death makes it FAR more interesting than any Mustafa or Camus I've ever encountered Skrimir-what starts off as another hot-headed, arrogant commander turns out to actually get some interesting development. After he loses to general Zelgius he's forced to reconsider his attitude towards strength and his overall confidence in his ability. He essentially finally sees the strength in planning and intelligence rather than brute force only and I found this pretty interesting to watch him grow as a character like this. Jill-this character is probably my favorite in the entire series. She starts off as another glory-seeking soldier who wants nothing more than to bring fame to her family's name. After defending Ike from the laguz pirates out of her hatred for the laguz she sticks around for a while and, slowly but surely, overcomes her racism towards the laguz. She even becomes so loyal to Ike's cause that she can (if you make her) kill her own father because he was in the way. And the way she reacts was heart breaking seeing her cry like that. The fact that she can potentially even join her father's side only adds more depth to her as a character. Ultimately, THIS is why I prefer the older games' stories to the modern ones as they actually had meaningful character development. Sure the tellius series had fan service and one note characters as well but it certainly was no where near as bad as awakening. Characters like Owain or Inigo, while they have "depth" (mainly tragic excuses for their annoying behavior), aren't nearly as interesting to me as some of the older characters. Sadly, not many people still care about great characters or interesting stories in games as, as long as MUH GAMEPLAY is handled correctly, nobody gives a shit anymore. As for that competitor to fire emblem I was working on...it's canceled (for now). While I do want to play a fire emblem game with good stories again I don't have the skills necessary to make such a thing. Because, if fates doesn't have a good story and the future games don't have good stories or characters either... *stares at noose* It's time....
  20. So, I'm on Chapter 19, and I want to know how my party are doing average stat wise, and to know which ones are the best and which ones are the worst in your opinion. Every one hit level 20. For those who saw my previous thread on the forum, I have decided not to use Rhys and I did use Astrid in the end. So, here we go: Ike: Level 2 Lord 37 HP 16 Strength 7 Magic 21 Skill 22 Speed 12 Luck 20 Defence 10 Resistence Jill: Level 2 Wyvern Lord 35 HP 18 Strength 3 Magic 16 Skill 17 Speed 9 Luck 15 Defence 7 Resistence Oscar: Level 2 Paladin (Bows Secondary Weapon) 36 HP 17 Strength 9 Magic 19 Skill 16 Speed 12 Luck 15 Defence 9 Resistance Boyd: Level 2 Warrior 46 HP 18 Strength 3 Magic 17 Skill 16 Speed (+1 Speedwing) 10 Luck 16 Defence 8 Resistance Nephenee: Level 2 Harberdeir 33 HP 12 Strength 5 Magic 18 Skill 23 Speed 9 Luck 16 Defence 7 Resistance Ilyana: Level 2 Mage (Staffs selected) 33 HP 6 Strength 15 Magic 18 Skill 17 Speed 13 Luck 9 Defence 21 Resistance Rolf: Level 2 Sniper 34 HP 16 Strength 7 Magic 19 Skill 20 Speed 12 Luck 12 Defence 9 Resistance Astrid: Level 2 Paladin (Axes chosen) 36 HP 17 Strength 13 Magic 19 Skill 20 Speed 15 Luck 18 Defence 13 Resitance Mia: Level 2 Swordsmaster 41 HP (+1 Seraph Robe) 13 Strength 7 Magic 19 Skill 22 Speed 14 Luck 9 Defence 6 Resistance Gatrie: Level 2 General 41 HP 23 Strength 2 Magic 17 Skill 8 Speed (Poor guy!) 9 Luck 22 Defence 8 Resistance Soren: Level 2 Sage (Staffs chosen) 31 HP 2 Strength 22 Magic 21 Skill 21 Speed 11 Luck 9 Defence 20 Resistance Mist: Level 1 Valkyrie 31 HP 8 Strength (+1 Energy Drop) 20 Magic 12 Skill 17 Speed 20 Luck 6 Defence 19 Resistance.
  21. So, I recently got myself a Nintendo Wii and a copy of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. I still need to get myself a GameCube Controller so that I can play Path of Radiance, but I have some questions. Do I need to get myself a SD card for my Wii so that I can transfer saved data from Path of Radiance to Radiant Dawn? I'm thinking yes, as that means that I can save my Saved data from Path of Radiance onto the SD card? I just want some clarification, as I know the feature is there, but I just don't know how it works. Thank you. :)
  22. Alright so after realizing I really suck at Xcom 2 and my computer can't handle it I'm back to Fire Emblem. Sacred Stones is still on hold, but I decided that I should continue going through the games and thus Path of Radiance was chosen! Just like Sacred Stones I know nothing about the story and even less about the characters except that the main character has a sword :P. I'm very excited to play this game, since not even my friend has played it and he said he'll be watching. No pressure, right? [spoiler=Story] It starts off with two men clashing (one obviously being the protagonist). Ike gets knocked down and when a little girl distracts the older man Ike strikes at him, but is easily defeated and knocked unconscious. Ike then proceeds to have a dream about an indigo haired woman and is woken up by the little girl's song and possibly the worst voice acting in history. [spoiler=Tutorial] We go through the beginning of the tutorial where Mist gets onto our father about hitting Ike so hard. Then Ike defends his honor by wanting to challenge his father once more, but before he can...OMG IS THAT ROSS!? He's back from the dead! It's a miracle! But in actuality his name is Boyd and he is offered to be our training dummy. I then proceed to kill Ross. Again. Mist then proceeds to insult Boyd and I begin my fight with my Father and win easily. Ike then begs to be a mercenary since apparently Ross is one too. My Father relents and I officially join the Greil Mercenaries. We got a really good level btw I'll do the 1st Chapter right after posting this, but I really wanted to just get this out there and start playing this game. Also any help regarding items or recruitable units is much appreciated.
  23. So I think very highly of Chapter 11, my full point is the video below: But I was wondering if others feel the same way or If I'm giving it too much credit.

  25. PoR PoV Fanfic

    So I decided to jump onto the fanfic bandwagon with a story based off of my favorite FE game so far, Path of Radiance. This will be a Point of View (PoV) story where you follow me, Alex, throughout the game and trying to survive in the land of Tellius. But I wanted to do things a little more differently, too. At some points in the story, there will be options to choose from, sort of like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book/story. So you can decide what happens to me as I go through this even killing me off maybe. Also, while I myself have fairly decent knowledge of the game, I’m making it so my character does not. So, let’s get started! Prologue [spoiler=Walk around]Deciding the man didn’t want anything to do with me, I wondered around the area. I got completely lost in the nearby forest and franticly started searching for a way out. I ended up running into a troop of soldiers at their camp. “Hey, can any of you lead me out of this forest?” I asked them. I appeared to have startled them as they jumped up and readied their weapons. I alarmingly raised my hands and said “Sorry! I didn’t mean to scare you! I just want some help getting out of here!” The soldiers didn’t seem to care much as they kept inching closer to me cautiously. I gulped, worried that I was going to die in this strange land. Just when it seemed the soldiers were about ready to strike, a blast of wind came out from behind me, blowing them all back! I turned to see the man I met earlier, battle ready. “I don’t know how you managed to get ahead of me,” he said. “But you should be more careful.” “S-sorry,” I stuttered. “I got lost.” “Clearly,” the man said. “…Follow me for now, but don’t talk.” I looked at the wounded soldiers, nodded, and followed the man. It took us a number of days to get to where we were trying to go. We soon introduced ourselves, with this man’s name being Soren. He had packed enough food and water only for him, so we had to eat sparingly. He also only had one bag to sleep in, so we took turns, though the tent was big enough for the both of us. Numerous times, we had to maneuver around enemy fortresses. Soren takes his time to plan out the movements of the enemies, then when he has enough information, we move and try to avoid them all. Soon enough, we ran out of food, but Soren said his base was close by. (Jump to Spoiler marked "Part 2") [spoiler=Part 2]We finally arrived at Soren’s base. His comrades welcomed him back, though he mostly stayed to himself, asking to speak to the commander. Everyone was more curious about the person Soren picked up on the way back, though, but they were all friendly and welcomed me to the base. The red-long-haired archer named Shinon didn’t seemed too pleased, though. Soon, the commander entered the room and Soren gave him the updates about what he has found. Then the commander noticed me. “And who is this, Soren?” he asked to both me and Soren. “My name is Alex, sir,” I replied. The commander had light brown hair and looked very strong. I certainly wouldn’t want to fight against him, so I tried to stay on my best behavior. The commander laughed at me, though, and patted me on the shoulder. “No need to be so afraid, boy,” he said. “I’m a nice guy, don’t worry. My name is Greil. I’m the commander of this troop you see here: The Greil Mercenaries.” “Mercenaries?” I asked. “Don’t worry,” the man named Oscar said. “We only take care of the bad guys.” “So as long as you don’t get on our bad side, we’ll get along,” the woman named Titania said. I looked at them all and nodded. “Everyone, to the briefing room! We have some things to discuss,” Greil announced. Everyone agreed and left the room, except me. I just stood there, wondering what to do. “Hey!” the man named Boyd walked back in and shouted at me. “You coming or what?” Smiling, I ran to him and we went to meet up with the rest. What do you think? I don’t know what inspired me to make this, but I think this came together rather well. I’m not entirely sure how well I can do the branching options or the story over all with a completely new pov, but we’ll see what happens. Should I keep going? I completely forgot to describe myself in the story. Whoops! Just picture a brown-haired Oscar with open eyes and glasses and you pretty much have me XD
