  1. Mark of Byleth

    In case anyone didn't see the tags, beware those who enter, here be spoilers Longtime reader, first-time poster. Thought I'd give my crack theory followed by a genuine discretion about Byleth's crest (called it the mark of Byleth so that the title was marginally less spoilery). So now we know that Byleth has not just a major crest, but a crest of ???. This crest is also seen on the "Nemesis the Liberation King" who is depicted in the flashback fighting the armies of Seiros with his bone sword. It is also seen on Sothis' clothing. Byleth's aura has been shown to be dark/shadowy. Now some wild speculation but with all the comparisons going around between Genealogy and Three Houses right now due to Crests seeming to mirror holy bloodlines, I have been thinking about who the Genealogy equivalent of Byleth might be. Let's see, we have a dark bloodline with a dark past that was suppressed by the holy church/bloodlines. We have a dark, shadowy aura. We don't know who Byleth's mother is. We have an extremely powerful dragon deity of unknown alignment whispering in our ear. But that doesn't sound right, does it? Unless... And it came to me: Byleth is Arvis. I mean he probably is could be the whole mysterious chosen one who could ruin everything if he goes down the wrong path Corrin/Robin style, but just think about it. We are the dark bloodline. And while Seiros, like Ashera, may not be as pure good as she first appears, that doesn't necessarily make us good either. If so, it seems that Byleth may have to arrange an academy barbecue. I feel so, so... dastardly _________________________________________________________________ But more seriously, what do people think that Byleth's Crest is? Is it basically the Mark of Grima (evil but protagonist doesn't want it and actively fights against it)? Is it the mark of the chosen one (indicates power and goodness)? Is it like the blood of Loptyr (evil, and can corrupt its bearer or cause them to unwittingly bring about a new age of darkness) Or is it something else entirely?
  2. In the most recent trailer we see one of the nobles (Casper I think) attack a western church soldier with iron gauntlets. We see that he doubles on the screen, but he attacks twice before the western church soldier. Maybe he didn’t have the speed requirement to double (quadruple with a brave weapon) so he only did two attacks before the western church soldier, much like in previous games. So do you think guantlets will be brave weapons?
  3. I'm not very sure myself on who it might be. I want it to be the church but my gut tells me it will be opposing countries. I want to hear what you think about this considering it has been one of the most confusing thing about these trailers imo.
  4. Looking at the map you can see what appears to be smaller nations: Albinea, Sreng, Almyra and Morfic. Based on Geography, Current Politics etc., what can you speculate with these nations and what could be their role in the story?
  5. What do you think the canon classes might be for the students of the Three Houses, based on the weapon types shown to be used by each student so far, as well as their overall design?
  6. I think Byleth’s sword may have divine ability of a goddess and it may be a whip too? Unit can counterattack regardless of space? Whip Sword? Sorry for keeping the annoying bars there I felt people may want to see timestamps!
  7. So... a unknown menu text was found in the last datamine: "MID_SUMMON_PULL_ONLY_ONCE_Summon_762_legend13_OnlyPickup: The session ends when you summon a Hero." For me, and for a lot of people on internet, this sounds like a "Free Summon Banner", just like the CYL banners. And we have the "legend13" on it, which could mean 13 Legendary Heroes. I believe, for the 2 years anniversary, we will get a Free Legendary Hero of our choice, between 13 possible Legendary Heroes. I am also thinking that, since we have 14 Legendary Heroes, Fjorm will be out of this event. She is already a free hero, after all. Legendary Ike is also a free hero, but he is a different case. He won the A Hero Rises event, and that's why he is a free hero. Anyway, this is only a speculation, but... If we get a Free Legendary Hero of our choice, what Legendary Hero would you pick and why? For me, I would pick Legendary Azura. From all Legendary Heroes that I don't have (Ryoma, Eirika, Hríd and Azura), she will be the most useful hero for me.
  8. So I was in the middle of playing for the millionth time and after a bit of exploring the map and doing some grinding here or there, I realized something interesting on the placement of the ruins of time. if you compare the map of awakening to the map of shadow dragon and the archanean map of SoV, you'll notice that the ruins of time is placed directly where thabes once was. Which is interesting because in new mystery of the emblem it is said that thabes was naga's final resting place which is referenced by the fact that you get naga's tear after clearing the map. Though what's interesting about this location in retrospect is that thabes is also where grima originated from. Now I don't know how much of Grima's backstory the developer's had thought up by that point but what's most interesting is that paralogue is the one you get morgan in who is essentially the son/daughter of grima. Or well grima's vessal but you get the idea. Makes you wonder how morgan ended up there in the first place? Maybe after the events of future past they traveled there due to wanting to learn more about grima and something happened? I dunno but it's interesting to think about.
  9. So with the exciting announcement of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 at the VGAs, bringing this franchise out of an almost 10 year slumber, I thought it would be fun to discuss the possibilities of this game. Which known characters are you excited to use? Which not-currently-revealed characters do you want to be playable? Which locations do you hope will appear as missions? Which villains are you excited to fight? Are there any Nintendo characters that you would like to see crossover?
  10. You guys remember a year ago back in august when the first brave heroes came out and someone translated the text on Lucina's lance with it reading something along the lines of "anime project success". Whatever happened to that? have there been any new developments regarding this so called "anime project"? I'm curious cause it's been well over a year since this info surfaced and I haven't anything about it since.
  11. As the title says: when do you think we'll get more information about Three Houses?
  12. I didn't see a thread for this, so I figured I'd make one. Some people really don't like seasonal units, and I understand that. I think that, in some cases, though, seasonal units a great ways to highlight aspects of characters that you don't get to see in their games. I think it also gives the heroes a chance to kick by and try things not available in their home worlds. (Like Elincia and Micaiah going to the Hoshidan summer festival.) Sort of like going on vacation with Askr being the terminal through which they can access them. And since we're dealing in an alternate timeline tangle, I think it makes sense. But anyway, what sort of seasonal units would you like to see/do you think would be fitting? Any predictions on which characters might show up in upcoming seasonal events? This is a thread for talking about that! As for me, I was just thinking about how we're probably going to be getting another Halloween banner in October and started wondering which heroes would be featured. Two of the ones I thought would be good for this event were Cherche and Lute. Both of them find revenants cute, so I'd love to see them chatting it up about that, and the best place I can think of for that sort of conversation is in a Halloween event. Maybe they'd both have costumes based on revenants, though Jakob already did that. Of course, this isn't to say that they couldn't have different takes on the same basic theme. Maybe Alm in a Duma costume, with a weapon based on his Scendscale attack in reference to the achievement you unlock when you use it, "Duma Incarnate." Do you think he'd be made into a dragonstone user if that was the case, to give some variety and further the joke, or would he remain a sword unit? Maybe Cain would be dressed up as a minotaur in reference to his title as "The Bull?" If so, maybe he'd be a green infantry unit this time, wielding an axe. A seasonal Forging Bonds event would be cool, too, for extra character interaction, but it looks like it won't be coming up this time.
  13. By how I'm pretty sure we are all aware of Ms. Freshberg nickname by the fans after the trailer. I'm wondering how long will be called that? Will she make a conversational decision in the story to keep the name.? Or she she part of the invading kingdom that wishes to break the status quo, despite the consequences? I guess the answer will be revealed next year,
  14. (Ch.21) Why didn't Ninian want Nils to be moved?

    Here's the dialogue in question: I've been watching a recent LP of FE7, and they recently finished Ch. 21: Kinship's Bond. This thought had crossed my mind long ago when I played through the game myself, and it finally dawned on me again: When Nils collapses at the start of the chapter (most likely from giving all his energy to Ninian in the previous chapter), exactly why did Ninian not want Nils to be moved? I don't think there was ever an explanation for this. I mean, yeah, they're manaketes and granted it's several chapters before the Lords find that out the hard way, but I still don't see what harm there would've been in moving him. Was he perhaps so low on quintessense that moving him could've shook the last bit of it out of him and killed him in the process? That's the most sound reason I can think of. But it may as well have just been left up to interpretation. If there actually is a reason and I either overlooked it or it's only in the Japanese script, I would love to know. This question's been eating at me for years. In any case, munch on some brain food and share your thoughts.

  17. Ideas For Book 3

    With book 2 soon to be concluding, what are some new addition you want to be added in the next large part of the game? I want is : Generic beast units, so later animal changers can be in the game Moving/shifting levels Level hazards A new villain that isn't just an evil conquer. What do you want?
  18. If a sequel is announced for Fire Emblem Warriors 2, what approach to stage selection would you prefer for the next game to take? See the included poll for options and feel free to express your wishes in the thread. Are there any particular Fire Emblem chapters you would love to see adapted into a Warriors stage? Note - this is for actual gameplay stage designs, not history mode story scenarios. I personally really want to see: Path of Radiance: Port Toha Serenes Forest Radiant Dawn: Elincia's Gambit The Price Final Chapter - Rebirth Sacred Stones: Chapter 8 - It's a Trap Chapter 15 - Scorched Sand Chapter 19 - Last Hope Awakening: Chapter 4 - Two Falchions (Arena Ferox) Chapter 9 - Emmeryn Fates: Opera House Wind Tribe Village (Revelation Route) Port Town of Dia Shadow Dragon: Camus the Sable The Temple of Thabes
  19. Im bored And curious And impatient. So. what in particular do yall want to see in fire emblem switch?
  20. After Robin's Sacrifice

    So after Robin's sacrifice to kill Grima, he dissolves into nothingness. I wonder how long did it take for Chrom and Lissa to find him again? My guess is took about a year or two for them to finally meet Robin again. I'm taking in account the character endings happen before the final cutscene afterward Robin's ending happen.
  21. So with the coming DLC, we have new weapons. (The last two packages) What do you think their skills are gonna be? Will they have new skills or a unique combination of the old ones or both?
  22. As of now you probably know that the cipher mascots are gonna be downloadable. What do you think are gonna be the unique arts/spells ate they gonna have to set them apart from the rest? Personal speculation Shade - to emphasize her being a genius, she's gonna have a diverse spell set including some unused ones. They may add dine "underhanded" spells to emphasize her being a dark magic user. Emma - to emphasize her being a trainee, she will have noob friendly skills like underdog etc. Yuzu - despite being given a hybrid class, I believe her arts will focus more on her sword fighting to compensate her probably lack of spell pool. Lando - he was ruthless in his youth but have mellowed, He appears to be designed as a gambler. His arts May involve leaving things to RNG. And maybe a few underhanded arts as well.
  23. 2017 Banners?

    So, I've been thinking about Banners as of late since the number of "Main Lords" are slowly dwindling. I think all that is left is... FE 2, 15 - Celica (Coming Soon™) FE 4 - (1st Gen? Not too familiar with Genealogy) FE 5 - Leif & Company FE 10 - Micaiah and the Dawn Brigade (One can argue for Elincia, but then that opens up the entire Tellius roster due to all the different nations and such.) Then for other banners... Choose Your Legends Banner (hopefully before FE: Warriors [in the Fall], at least before Christmas) Fire Emblem Warriors (full of the OCs that will no doubt come from that game.) Summer Festival Banner (I am certain this will be a thing in July, swimsuits for everyone!) Halloween Banner (Given that Christmas and Easter is celebrated, I am expecting Halloween outfits.) Christmas Banner (We already have a Christmas Robin and Tharja, so I expect them to be a thing.) So, that is 9 banners, or about 4.5 months worth of banner content for the rest of the year. I wonder what will be put in in the meantime for the other 2.5 slots. Fire Emblem: Switch is not until 2018, so I guess Heroes will simply put in characters from existing titles once again like with the previous banners? Personally, I am really hoping to see more Sacred Stones representation. I want to see Seth, Duessel, Marisa, and L'arachel in Heroes! Anyways, what do you guys think? Will 2017 flesh out the rest of the main lords and include seasonal banners, or will we simply see a return to adding characters from older titles?
  24. Future Grand Hero Speculations
