As I mentioned in the general Fire Emblem thread, it might be best to have a separate one for this one. Considering those of us playing it may have feels. Also thoughts.
Do mind the spoilers though. There is a handy spoiler function you can use.
Example of spoiler tags.
You can find this under the cog icon -> hide details.
Definitely would like to hear about what house you picked and why. I went with Blue Lions. It was a hard pick because they were all interesting. From my gut instinct I was guessing the main conflict was BL/BE though with GD more of a side perspective, so I wanted to go with those first. Also leaving Claude to last, just saying. And from the initial look we get, slightly more students in BL interested me.
I’m currently many hours in, nearly a full year into the timeline. Stuff is really starting to happen and I’m very much attached to my students. I did decide not to recruit from other houses as I wanted to keep them for those playthroughs. I can however see the pain that is going to be not being able to recruit Dimitri and Dedue on subsequent plays. It’s going to hurt. At least with Fates you knew Revelation mostly let you have everyone.
So far I’m enjoying the plot too, it’s interesting. Although some of it is predictable, but that’s JRPGs for you.
Do not click until past chapter 9 or if you like spoilers.
Did anyone really not see the Monica thing coming? Also, a character going “I have to tell you something, but not right now, we’ll talk later.” Is about as obvious as having a big red sign on that reads: Dead man walking.
And yet, it still hurt. Especially him being glad to see Byleth cry for the first time and that the tears were for him. Why game? Why all said feels.
I’m really sort of dreading the jump. Now they are mostly sort of happy-ish. I just want to keep them that way. And as I said in the other thread get Dmitri some therapy. All the others Blue Lions too, to be honest, but mostly Dmitri. That cinnamon roll needs therapy and hugs.
Also, gatekeeper for the win. And boo on not letting us pet the cats and dogs.
