Welp, looks like I'm gonna show you another Fire Emblem ROMhack. This one seems to be by the dude who made that one Soldier in The Last Promise that I never used.(Ace) Anyways, let's start, shall we?
No fancy trip, title, or FAQ today. This is only six chapters long. Turns out I mixed up this game with the "prequel" which is an Eliwood Mode reskin. This is apparently "original".
That being said, we have an intro that really gets my expectations high.
Tactician screen. Not sure if the name will be used at all, as I'm doing this blind. Regardless, I'm assumed most people want the name to be Kevin.
Well, that is, whoever is actually here.
Good enough. I might have been a bit early with starting this. Oh well, if the thread dies, it dies and I'll start Monday as originally planned.
WAIT, WASN'T THAT THE SAME FUCKING NAME AS TLP'S PROLOGUE?
THAT IS A REALLY FUCKING ODD COINCIDENCE.
Not a lot of time for deaths. Game was never finished.
Only TLP dude here is Ace, who apparently dropped the soldier bit and went full swordmaster.
Apparently Aona here needs to be trained for fighting. Thankfully Ace feels like giving us a fucking tutorial.
Also Blazer seemed to have liked the wallpaper, somehow.
Our lord is pretty much a recruit with insanely high RES.
>Cloud and Sephiroth
Nope nope nope nope.
Batman will be showing up at some point, apparently.
Behind Ace's super high level 1 stats, we can see that he is in fact Batta.
Who in their right mind
Apparently missing with a Javelin is good enough training. Ace tells her to head back to the house, but there is no Seize command.
Aona asks how the fuck that qualified as training, and Ace gives a response that cements him as a retard.
I would rather have that than horrifying mini mugs. Some just literally use a downsized version of the normal portrait, It looks like shit.
Also I already fucking hate this game.
After hoping that Ace is all right for some reason, we can actually start the game.
True. I COULD be playing GhebFE.
That being said, it isn't like this is much better.
Either he's killed off in the first two chapters or he gets nerfed somehow.
Those stats break even the end game.
yeah, who is this dude? I know who Greil is.
Yeah. Just like I thought, he kinda wanted to move on from TLP. He was happy that it entertained people, at least. Not a bad attitude to have, I guess.
Anyways, we need to escape.
seems like a good place to ask since mildly on-topic.
Never played Fire Emblem before, got demo of 3DS one and my immediate reaction was
>It's Advance Wars with gear, swords and experience
So I'm interested but where should I start? Awakening or something older?
aw shit we anime now
After escaping, Greil kills an incoming enemy but OH SHIT ZEPHIEL.
Start with Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. Fire up a ROM and have some fun.
Well, a hell of a six chapter ride.
ALSO, THE ONE THING LESS LIKELY THAN KEVIN'S DOUBLE CRIT.
A ZERO PERCENT CRIT.
Start with Awakening or Shadow Dragon so you're not massively disappointed in either later on
Shadow Dragon is a DS remake of the very first game in the series with not all that much added, so it lacks some mechanics and polish that other games have. Awakening is good for an entry to the series because it's easier and more accessible to anyone not familiar with the games. FE7 (just called Fire Emblem) on GBA is also great for a beginner.
He mentions that "Ace must...." do something but can't get it out before dying.
Start with the things you don't need to pay for.
Emulate the older ones first and then try the awakening demo again.
Awakening is alot easier and more focused on support conversations.
If you've played the first ones, the xp and weapons DLC will make you shit bricks.
Support conversations were a fan favorite of the earlier games to spice things up a bit and contained some funny dialog. Awakening just dials that up to a 100.
oh my god you might be right
Anyways, we escape and Tuxedo Mask or whoever is totally wrong about Greil's survival.
>Getting stabbed by that fucking behemoth of a sword
I sorta get his reasoning behind not wanting to be associated with TLP that much. I mean, he DID do FE12's English patch. Thanks for that, Blazer.
also oh no more enemies
>I mean, he DID do FE12's English patch.
Shit really? That was a really solid translaton (at least compared to the other Fire Emblem translations). Did he have anything to do with the arrow to the knee joke that got patch out later due to backlash?
we aren't doing FE404 yet
This dude would be complete shit but his prepromote status will be vital.
I think he was the dude who wanted it removed.
Howdy Sig. Hope you like how completely broken and easy this hack is. These guys aren't even the half of it. This is by chapter 8, by the way.
well of course
Anyways, Canto seems to exist.
what the fuck?
Chapter 8? This looks like it might be longer than I thought.
Appreciate the help. Will emulate what I can first and maybe grab Awakening later, no point replaying the demo since it's literally 2 battles and a cutscene.
1 (Shadow Dragon) DS -> 7 (FE) GBA -> 8 (Sacred Stones) GBA -> 9 (Path or Radiance) GC -> 10 (Radiant Dawn) Wii -> 11 (Awakening) 3DS
That sounds about right?
Oh god this is going to be a long ride isn't it
A thing about shadow dragon. It's literally the worst in the series, so if you feel bored of it don't be afraid to drop it and move on to 7 (I personally liked it, But it has plenty of flaws)
nothing can be as long as The Last Promise
yeah just wait until Jack Frost comes in
Also Jeigan has S ranks in every fucking weapon type
Marth asks why, and Jeigan explains that Sephiroth promised that Jeigan would be actually good if he became evil.
Unless they're being sent to fight an army of 400 dracodragons what's the point of even continuing to play the game?
>Jeigan joining Sephiroth and attempting to kill Marth
Holy fuck dude, the Fire Emblem community attracts about as much autism and OC donut steel as Sanic if these romhacks are anything to go by.
>mfw I just realised that I will die one day and there's nothing I can do to stop it
Thanks for the panic attack
http://www.thelastpromise.net/ Look in the chatbox
Blazer is actually taking it well, honestly he's a pretty cool dude from the looks of it and even he admits he wrote the story on a whim.
Dont scare the new guy off
For gba I'd recommend 7 or 8, 7 has this charm to me that it is a prequel and that is never mentioned. As bad as it was, playing 6 years later and seeing what your dudes turned into was a real feelercoaster.
Also it was a joke.
greil is dead nooo
What the hell
What the fuck
What the shit
also what the fuck is going on
It keeps on delivering
All that's left is for Jesus to show up
for some reason this image is making me irrationally angry
>he never got the ending where crono talks to lucca and marle
6 is just another fire emblem. it's kinda the prototype for the other gba FEs. it's harder than sacred stones and fe7 eliwood hard mode. the plot leaves a little to be desired but if you liked 7 and 8 then it's definitely worth playing
So when is Madoka and Ramza coming in?
we have an archiver, you know. Of course, it will likely die at some point. Good thing I save screenshots.
Awaking's hard mode was actually much more challenging than I expected compared to the other games. I had to restart a chapter like 10 times because of overconfidence. But after halfway through once you get Lucina and pair her up with Kjelle you can just have them solo everything
Well it IS an offscreen death.
My personal favorite is Bartre in 7, and boy did the whole bartre/karel/karla thing get touching too.
Kinda disappointed not to see Lyn, but I knew she was a new face for 7, anyway. I doubt she would have sat through all this in caelin though
Awakening hard mode felt bad to me.
May be the fact that just before I played RD for the first time on Normal/Hard (JP) and I liked how the difficulty was handled.
Awakening hard blind run degenerated into a:"Shit flying reinforcements again"
are you fucking kidding me I can't fucking handle this plot
Can you please explain to me how any of you guys have grown fond of FeE7's cast? The story and writing are dogshit and especially Hector's character was dreadful. "Rawr I hate all the Black Fangs they are so bad we should drown their children, I act without thinking, what an endearing character trait! That's also how nobles are raised to think and act right? Also I killed an innocent soldier with no remorse and I got high fived for it because this game was written for eight year old kids".
and so it begins
also I'm cutting text as usual but this plot seriously makes no fucking sense at all
also i'm not kidding this is seriously a fanfic
I played the game three times, every time with different characters, and never had problems with them.
As I love Advance Wars and the writing is what it is.
I kinda apreciated Days of Ruin as well, fucking Brenner
Someone made this.
Someone took the time to make/ripoff the sprites, write this dialogue, and wasted precious bandwith putting it on a file-sharing website. People downloaded it onto their computers, and they played it from beginning to end.
You're a better man than most of us, Siggy.
I just can't
yes, apparently all FE worlds have collided.
In addition to the nonsense plot, this game also falls prey to the infamous text skipping, where words advance on their won. So sometimes shit just flies by and I get words like this.
Dammit, now I'm going to do that too. Thank you for breaking me
do you think i fucking understand any of this
Anyways, the gang splits up. Ike and Cloud go to protect the Fire Emblems, but Mamoru must go rescue Ace.
>what are war conventions and protocols
And before you even think of saying that is only used in real life, they are the same shit that say "make the enemies prisoner" or "don't start a war without a formal declaration", shit that is always respected even in FE unless the ragtag bandits of the first chapters count.
i have no fucking idea
Also Princess whoever wants to join. Mamoru gives the whole "it is dangerous" routine but she is with us now.
WHY ARE YOU PROTECTING THEM
WE JUST ESTABLISHED THAT THEIR CONTINUED EXISTENCE IS THE ONLY THING PRESERVING THE POSSIBILITY OF DANGER
BREAK THEM IN HALF. THROW THEM IN A FUCKING VOLCANO. TELL KEVIN THEY INSULTED HIS MOTHER. DO ANYTHING BESIDES THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT YOU SHOULD BE DOING
NO WE NEED THE FIRE EMBLEMS TO SEAL THE LAVOS FROM SEPHIROTH
also Mamoru gives Aona a lance.
IT JUST MAY BE
Also, despite not speaking at all, Leif is here. He even has his Light Sword.
Seeing this thread reminded me that i didn't catch up on the last threads. But when i refreshed the Pastebin, it's a FE:A Yuri fanfic now? What the hell, Sig
Oh hey Celica, barely recognized you without the short shorts and the weird naked tabard thing.
Aona isn't from any FE game.
also holy fucking shit it is real
I moved it for reasons. Just check my Pastebin profile.
>mfw getting Ace in my playthrough of TLP
>mfw promoting him to halberdier
Funny how the "generic" soldier feels the most unique out of a cast full of edgelord assassins and swordmasters.
someone linked the pastebin to blazer so i tried move it.
Also, Batman only gave us money.
