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.

THE RULES

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!

UkhbD.pngWzYJf.png

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

Ki7ws.pngVREPi.png

DAMNIT SETH (this happened like 12 times)

VmJvD.png

And guess what?

2rbig.png

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

FG2q3.png

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

14/14 turns. Yes. Killing Seth took THAT long.

RNG decrees Franz is dead.

[spoiler=Chapter 1]lwQJt.png

SHUT IT ZOMBIE SETH

0sGG5.png

FACE THE THWOMP PUNY SOLDIER

oeaZ5.pngnQBhI.png

That went well.

fIvH5.pngbncnW.png

And that went better.

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

X2U4P.png

I'm sure Gilliam will be fi-

430Mg.png

Or not.

av3Qv.png

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

MGp2P.png

You can't run from a thwomp.

kSjqL.pngpZet7.png

I'm okay with this.

9/23 turns.

You should play through the Tower of Valni later on and kill somebody off every floor.

Also, following this. It seems fun. I can't wait until you lose your best people a few chapters before the end of the game.

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]MnK6a.png

Why are we listening to the corpse again?

44xns.png

THIS IS SERIOUS BANANAS *shot*

AcMw4.png

Getting Ross out of there before he dies.

6obmh.png

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

GMalf.png0noyb.png

Ross wasn't much help.

4QPdw.png

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

DX43X.png1zfnI.png

Bleh.

rHlwm.png

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

NV6ZR.png

Why is it only the useful ones who die?

o5jHy.png

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

vj83L.png0WBGD.png

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

11/34 turns

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.

Wait if you do this every chapter, how many people will you be left with in the end? Awesome idea by the way! :P

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

Colm bites the dust in this update.

[spoiler=Chapter 3]iCu37.png

It feels so empty.

Ls2YK.png6DFuV.png

*sighs*

0spVn.pngimd9h.png

Nice to see Moulder is cooperating for once at least.

LN8gG.png

Ross never fails to disappoint me.

UR7iB.pnguejc4.png

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

bToIi.png2hOjU.pngMwMh2.png

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

AyI8f.png

And Nessie finally rolls strength.

22t0n.png

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

I never said it would solve it.

wjQb3.png

IRON EIRIKA

pwPl5.png

SHE CRITS WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT

12/46 turns.

This is terrible to do to other units.

If this were a draft I'd be in right now.

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

[spoiler=Chapter 4]ZwonE.png

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

nVZqc.png

Ross, stop being terrible.

T984T.png

Whoa. That's funky.

U5HT3.pnglpnUF.png

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

Everyone else stays back and well...

WeTgm.pngqr3Vn.png

Things could have gone better.

KH49Q.png

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.

hMcdJ.png

I thought Moulder was meant to be bad.

aqPWv.pngHOMim.png

Not the worst I suppose.

1oIS9.png

DON'T MISS THIS GUYS

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT

Jt8jd.png

ALL BOW BEFORE THE THWOMP

u4XmM.png

Missed again. It was shit anyway.

9/55 turns.

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

[spoiler=Chapter 5]4QgAo.png

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.

3ICoI.pngZki4e.pngOSaxi.pngzTc8t.png

Yes!

BeNmI.pngX9e3o.png3Vgpp.png

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

Hldxd.png

Stupid bandits forced me to take a risk.

aLwZo.png

This picture just looks strange.

D8Vpn.pngWMMqr.pngEPmls.pngXZiMl.pngzcdLK.png

More mediocrity!

Pjuv4.png

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

1x3Mm.pngK9UMi.png

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

xzxCz.png

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

A0aqR.png

This looks bad.

846EW.png

And this is just pouring salt on the wounds.

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

rSWF5.png

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

aUfWZ.pngTQWom.png

And Artur takes the boss.

I think it was 11 turns.

11/66

Yay 1 of only 2 arenas in FE8 [which are kinda redundant due to the Tower anyhow] kinda helped you in your death quest xD

Meanwhile, in Ephraimland...

[spoiler=Chapter 5x]yc6u7.png

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

oRNAP.png

"Badly? LET'S RUSH THEM"

HItIl.png

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

YYyde.png

Damnit Ephraim.

Re7H4.png

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

vNrZ0.pnghFE30.pngX90kQ.pngs6SGN.png

Great job guys.

UU7Em.png

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

Is3KK.png0Tfjl.png

Slightly better.

Cud4P.png

I spoke too soon.

PI6iG.pngGXUdv.png

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

TkXKg.png

Really?

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

4thcF.png

Looks like he decided to repeat the level for us.

26/92 turns.

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

The Boulder lives another day!

[spoiler=Chapter 6]0GwcF.png

Ross makes Bartre look good. Go die in a corner, cretin.

xnLAd.pnghL1ez.pngmYDwN.pngr9umv.png

Disappointment.

0oVpb.png

HAHA YES

LONG LIVE DOZLA

YEAH THAT WORKS

WOO DOZLA

36ic3.png8YvCl.pngF9HDc.png

Levels are improving, our troops are high on morale after the death of Ross!

k7Bnr.png

NO

HOW WILL NEIMI PROMOTE NOW

lYEPN.png

Look who finally decided to roll strength.

8QEL8.png

Fear the HORSEBIRD

3D4mq.png

Natashaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa ;_;

0vUCu.png

NEIMI IS PEERLESS

SHE TOTALLY ISN'T THE NEXT DEATH

I think it was 9/101 turns.
