FE8 Casualty Run

98 posts in this topic

I got this idea when I misread Refa in IRC. I wondered about a playthrough where you had to sacrifice a unit every chapter, and how it would turn out. I decided to make it a screenshot run.

[b]THE RULES[/b]
1. Hard mode all day every day.
2. Someone must die every chapter, determined by someone else's RNG.
3. Only exceptions to the rule are the twins. Everyone else is fair game.
4. Promotions are also RNGed. But no Super Trainees. Fuck them.
5. Trainees can go to level 10 in the tower. Everyone else is out of luck.

Without further ado, let's begin.

Thanks Valter! You made my job so much faster!

[img]http://i.imgur.com/UkhbD.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/WzYJf.png[/img]

It can't take him too long to die. Right?

[img]http://i.imgur.com/Ki7ws.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/VREPi.png[/img]


DAMNIT SETH (this happened like 12 times)

[img]http://i.imgur.com/VmJvD.png[/img]


And guess what?

[img]http://i.imgur.com/2rbig.png[/img]

They didn't even do it right! YOU DON'T SPEND 10 TURNS TRYING TO KILL SOMEONE ONLY TO FIND HE'S STILL ALIVE

CURSE YOU ZOMBIE SETH

[img]http://i.imgur.com/FG2q3.png[/img]


DOH I MISSED (Level was HP, Skl, Spd, Lck, Def).

14/14 turns. Yes. Killing Seth took THAT long.[/spoiler] Edited by Serious Bananas

RNG decrees Franz is dead.

[spoiler=Chapter 1][img]http://i.imgur.com/lwQJt.png[/img]

SHUT IT ZOMBIE SETH

[img]http://i.imgur.com/0sGG5.png[/img]


FACE THE THWOMP PUNY SOLDIER

[img]http://i.imgur.com/oeaZ5.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/nQBhI.png[/img]

That went well.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/fIvH5.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/bncnW.png[/img]


And that went better.

Reinforcements kind of threatened me, so I back Eirika off.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/X2U4P.png[/img]

I'm sure Gilliam will be fi-

[img]http://i.imgur.com/430Mg.png[/img]


Or not.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/av3Qv.png[/img]


Loving the strength Eirika. Especially since you're my only stable character right now.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/MGp2P.png[/img]


You can't run from a thwomp.

I'm okay with this.

Tower is far too dull for my tastes. That, and I would run out of units.

Chapter 2 should be up in a little while.

Stoopid parents.

Anyway, Garcia is dying this time around.


[spoiler=Chapter 2][img]http://i.imgur.com/MnK6a.png[/img]


Why are we listening to the corpse again?

[img]http://i.imgur.com/44xns.png[/img]


THIS IS SERIOUS BANANAS *shot*

[img]http://i.imgur.com/AcMw4.png[/img]


Getting Ross out of there before he dies.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/6obmh.png[/img]


I cleared out most of the map before the boss could get near...

[img]http://i.imgur.com/GMalf.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/0noyb.png[/img]


Ross wasn't much help.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/4QPdw.png[/img]


If that had hit I would have perma benched Ross. No matter what.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/DX43X.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/1zfnI.png[/img]


Bleh.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/rHlwm.png[/img]


Disarmed Eirika on the fort stalled Bone before I could drop Garcia off to his funeral.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/NV6ZR.png[/img]


Why is it only the useful ones who die?

[img]http://i.imgur.com/o5jHy.png[/img]


In the meantime I got the villages. Eirika softens the boss up.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/vj83L.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/0WBGD.png[/img]


Not shown: Ross whiffing the bosskill. He's still level 1 for a reason.

11/34 turns[/spoiler]

Route will be decided by what I think my remaining team can manage. If I'm left with Colm, Neimi and Ross I'm not chancing Ephraim route. Edited by Serious Bananas

Probably not many. Especially after the lack of characters from 6 and 7.

Colm bites the dust in this update.

[spoiler=Chapter 3][img]http://i.imgur.com/iCu37.png[/img]


It feels so empty.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/Ls2YK.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/6DFuV.png[/img]


*sighs*

[img]http://i.imgur.com/0spVn.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/imd9h.png[/img]


Nice to see Moulder is cooperating for once at least.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/LN8gG.png[/img]


Ross never fails to disappoint me.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/UR7iB.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/uejc4.png[/img]


Neimi isn't faring too badly, on the other hand.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/bToIi.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/2hOjU.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/MwMh2.png[/img]

Such a shame, his thieving would have been nice to have around for chapter 7 and 8.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/AyI8f.png[/img]

And Nessie finally rolls strength.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/22t0n.png[/img]


If you have a problem, throw a thwomp at it!

I never said it would solve it.

I bring with me an update! And a dead Lute! What more could you ask for?

[spoiler=Chapter 4][img]http://i.imgur.com/ZwonE.png[/img]

Don't complain bro, the girl next to you got RNGed to die.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/nVZqc.png[/img]


Ross, stop being terrible.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/T984T.png[/img]


Whoa. That's funky.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/U5HT3.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/lpnUF.png[/img]


Nessie headed south to recruit Lute and jack her stuff. Gilliam chokepoints.

Everyone else stays back and well...

[img]http://i.imgur.com/WeTgm.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/qr3Vn.png[/img]


Things could have gone better.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/KH49Q.png[/img]


Something to note, this guy will not move and attack on the same turn, unless he's attacked first. I leave him be for now.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/hMcdJ.png[/img]


I thought Moulder was meant to be bad.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/aqPWv.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/HOMim.png[/img]


Not the worst I suppose.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/1oIS9.png[/img]


DON'T MISS THIS GUYS

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT

[img]http://i.imgur.com/Jt8jd.png[/img]


ALL BOW BEFORE THE THWOMP

[img]http://i.imgur.com/u4XmM.png[/img]


Missed again. It was shit anyway.

Why do the people who I want to live have an unfortunate habit of dying? (Lute aside).

[spoiler=Chapter 5][img]http://i.imgur.com/4QgAo.png[/img]


And this gave me a wonderful idea. Seeing as how you're dying and all.

Some pics exploded. Not seen: Neimi getting the Draco. Because she can.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/3ICoI.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/Zki4e.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/OSaxi.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/zTc8t.png[/img]

Yes!

[img]http://i.imgur.com/BeNmI.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/X9e3o.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/3Vgpp.png[/img]


But the good levels couldn't last. (Ross' was just +Luck)

[img]http://i.imgur.com/Hldxd.png[/img]


Stupid bandits forced me to take a risk.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/aLwZo.png[/img]


This picture just looks strange.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/D8Vpn.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/WMMqr.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/EPmls.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/XZiMl.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/zcdLK.png[/img]


More mediocrity!

[img]http://i.imgur.com/Pjuv4.png[/img]


And now for Joshua. He fights to the death. Anyone want to bet how long he lasts?

[img]http://i.imgur.com/1x3Mm.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/K9UMi.png[/img]


It's not looking up for Mr Myrmidon...

[img]http://i.imgur.com/xzxCz.png[/img]


But he manages to pull another one out of the bag.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/A0aqR.png[/img]


This looks bad.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/846EW.png[/img]


And this is just pouring salt on the wounds.

I don't need a picture for you to guess what happened next.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/rSWF5.png[/img]


Moulder, why can't you do this more often? Like in the sadist draft...


[img]http://i.imgur.com/aUfWZ.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/TQWom.png[/img]

And Artur takes the boss.

I think it was 11 turns.

Meanwhile, in Ephraimland...

[spoiler=Chapter 5x][img]http://i.imgur.com/yc6u7.png[/img]


There are plenty of things I could call Valter. Pleasant is not one of them.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/oRNAP.png[/img]


"Badly? LET'S RUSH THEM"

[img]http://i.imgur.com/HItIl.png[/img]


Yeah, it's stupid. Who their right mind would launch an attack on an enemy fortress with just 3 guys?

[img]http://i.imgur.com/YYyde.png[/img]

Damnit Ephraim.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/Re7H4.png[/img]


First order of business is to clear the starting area, then push up. Forde Javelins stuff through walls.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/vNrZ0.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/hFE30.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/X90kQ.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/s6SGN.png[/img]

Great job guys.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/UU7Em.png[/img]


Ephraim has managed to miss with 100 hit. Words cannot describe the failure.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/Is3KK.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/0Tfjl.png[/img]


Slightly better.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/Cud4P.png[/img]


I spoke too soon.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/PI6iG.png[/img][img]http://i.imgur.com/GXUdv.png[/img]


Even with the killer lance Forde can't do anything!

[img]http://i.imgur.com/TkXKg.png[/img]


Really?

Not shown: Kyle getting +HP, and Orson dying to Zonta.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/4thcF.png[/img]


Looks like he decided to repeat the level for us.

26/92 turns.[/spoiler]

5x is nothing but bad units getting bad level ups.
