Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn Chapter 5

Part 9: (Part One, Chapter 5) The Reign in Daein

*
It is a history of unfinishing dispute between the beorc and the laguz, a history penned in blood and also scarred by mistrust. The beorc fight through the tools of man--the sword, the axe, the lance, and also the magic arts, while the laguz, able to transcreate right into beastern, bird, and also dragon, are tools unto themselves.

*
Is the Dawn Brigade"s meeting through these 3 chance...or a sign of points to come?Micaiah deserve to just wonder.
*
I"ll bet you anything we"ve discovered him.
*
Y"recognize, for a 5-second setitem cobbled together from around five different textures, a couple of models and the exact same few home window decals, this does not look fifty percent poor.
*
It"d be excellent if it were to discover Ashnard"s boy. I"m burning up out below. I"m not sure what it is. I view many imperiods, stacked on height of each other. It"s tough to watch what they all are. There"s danger, battles, and also disastrous sadness, however likewise...hope.
*
---With that, we head to the Base. Several brand-new conversations await!Let"s inspect in on the Dawn Brigadiers:
*
A long-lost prince of Daein? Who even knows if he really exists... Of course he does! How execute you know? Do you have any type of proof? Simple. Micaiah told us we have to look for the prince. So, it"s gotta be true! Yeah, you"re right. Her farsight is constantly spot on. Even if we don"t uncover him, there"s no have to problem... "cause I"m here! Excuse me? Due to the fact that we left Nevassa, my swordsmanship has pretty much enhanced tenfold! By the moment we get back residence, I"ll be invincible! I"ll kick those tyrants out of Daein through my own 2 hands and also one sharp blade! It"s good to have actually a dream, Edward... but you have to wake up now! Are you saying I"m not good enough?! No. I"m saying there"s a limit to how much one perchild have the right to attain. I"m going to perform the best I can, but... It does not issue just how solid the two of us end up being. We can"t change what"s going on in Daein. Not by ourselves. Well, duh! I"m simply saying it"s a goal! You know? Just something to job-related towards. Sure. But you shouldn"t say such points lightly. It might be simply a joke to you. It"s not to me. Wow. Sorry. Yeah, well. So am I. I didn"t mean to acquire so serious. All the fighting... it just gets to me occasionally.
*
Nolan. I couldn"t help yet overhear, and also I have actually a tiny to say on the subject. You"re ideal, each of us can just achieve so much on our own. But you boys are still young. Don"t let go of your wishes and desires. Not yet, anymethod. But... Listen, there"s no means we deserve to free Daein by ourselves. But we CAN uncover King Ashnard"s lost boy and fight against the empire under Daein"s banner. If we gather our strength, we stand also a better chance of freeing our motherland also. Now then, how"s that for a little incentive to get your sorry backsides into training harder? That"s great! Thanks, Nolan. You"re pretty smart for an old man! Hey, currently... None of that, or I"ll present you what an old guy can do! Leonarperform, are you feeling better? Yes, sir. Thank you, Nolan. I guess age does make you wiser. How old perform you think I am, anyway? Now I"m obtaining depressed...Damn straight! You have the right to attain great things via the best mindset! Well, unmuch less you"re Leonarperform, yet how many world are Leonardo? Oh, or Meg.Laura and Aran are catching up. Let"s intrude on them!
*
Yes. I"m afrassist I need to apologize for my bad option in employers. Please don"t concern about it. After all, you conserved us. When I witnessed Laura, I ssuggest couldn"t stand by any type of much longer. Thank you, Aran. I"ve been interpretation to ask you, Laura. What"s become of your church? I"d heard that, considering that the occupation, most of Daein"s clergy have actually been exinteracted and sent out to prisons. I understand that the empire sent out its very own replacements. Was your church affected? No, thankcompletely. Our congregation would certainly always say... "The clergy of the empire wouldn"t even consider coming to a dingy church in a backwater village choose this! You"ve been spared, Minister!" Ha ha ha... We extended our prayer time to thank the goddess for conserving our church. Ah... I view. Oh, Aran. I expected to tell you, now that you"re among us, you"ll have to become a bandit. Excuse me? I"m sorry... a bandit? There"s really no must problem. The Dawn Brigade bandits have actually virtuous civilization choose Micaiah in their ranks. Er... Okaaay... No, we"re not ban-- But constantly remember, Aran. We should strive above all else to be honorable bandits. For the future of Daein. Uh... All appropriate... ...Bandits?…K, then.Now that she mentions it, though, we did simply plunder some guy"s vault/tomb/other-appropriate-treasure-storage-location. How much stuff did we get? Our resident thief will certainly understand all around that…
*
How did we do? We have 10,000 in gold. Great! That"ll aid a lot. Maybe. We can use even more. Sothe, 10,000 is plenty. We simply need sufficient money to live on. More than that, and the heart becomes impoverished. I recognize, I recognize. We must be well-off of heart and bad of pocket... Me, I simply follow your orders.>Not bad, Sothe.Finally, Nailah has a proplace for us.
*
Yes. We should go ago. My dear... Yes, Rafiel, I recognize. Micaiah, I have actually a question. How have the right to we help you in this fight? What? But... I know you probably do not want to be seen with laguz. But we cannot simply sit on our paws, so to stop, while our allies are in risk. I appreciate that, however... No? Fine. Sorry to bother you. No, no. It"s not what you think. Please don"t apologize. It"s just that... What is it, Volug?
*
... I view. That is a great principle. Oh, yes. I agree. That is a wonderful idea.
*
*
Micaiah, it will not seem so starray if you take a trip into the desert through this dog at your side, will it? What?! As you recognize, we laguz fight only in our shifted creates. However, we can"t remajor in that state for extremely long. It is also exhausting. Volug, however, has halfshifted. When he does this, he can remajor in beast develop all day long. Queen Nailah, I appreciate your help-- He is not as strong in this transitional develop. Even so, he is still more than a enhance for any type of beorc. How could you call Volug a dog?! I know. He"s not as friendly as a dog. And I don"t know if he"s housebroken. But he deserve to fight! That is not what I supposed. Micaiah. We wish you good luck. Volug, guard her well. Do be careful. I will certainly. Thank you. Volug, is she constantly so... blunt?We"ve got ourselves our first laguz party member!
*
*
Tbelow are 2 things you should appreciate around Volug:1) He shares Jeigan duties through Sothe. Though he"s not strictly speaking overlevelled (even more on this in a bit) he"s grossly overpowered right here and also now however will certainly be thoaround mediocre by the moment points really get going.
*
2) For the whole of Part 1, he is locked right into his Halfshifted state, in accordance through the Wildheart ability that is set and locked on him. Though he deserve to remajor transdeveloped indefinitely, his stats, fairly than being doubled, are only raised by half.(Volug likewise has the Howl ability, which we"ll check out in activity shortly)Funfact™: This isn"t actually an accurate representation of how Halftransition actually functions as soon as you get to usage it on other laguz. What actually happens is that if a laguz has the ability equipped, s/he have the right to halftransition at any time, regardless of the transformation gauge, yet it will still empty as soon as taking turns and being struck, and also the user will certainly transform earlier to normal when it reaches zero.You may too likewise know at this allude that laguz systems level rather in different ways from beorc. Laguz level approximately 40, and do not promote or otherwise readjust class. Their stat growths are additionally somewhat characteristic; they have actually insane HP expansion as a ascendancy (you will certainly pretty much never view a laguz not obtain HP throughout a level up) however otherwise have actually low-ish growths and low caps. This is weighed, however, versus the fact that all these stats (HP and Luck excepted) will certainly be doubled for short durations of time.All of this makes Volug a pretty destructive character, both in mechanics, plot and meta-gameplay. As a Jeigan he will certainly be the doom of anyone not savvy to Fire Emblem"s tricks, his whole gimmick is contrary to every facet of good strategic usage of laguz in combat, and his whole character is basically "a male that 2 even more amazing characters sfinish to "help" (yet will hurt you in the long term if you accept said help)". He kinda sorta has a little development much later on, but… well, that"s periods amethod.…oh, ideal, the LP.
*
With Sothe+Micaiah and also MatthewEdward+Nolan already accounted for, and also Meg and Ilyana consigned to the bench (so to sheight, it"ll be surprisingly lengthy before we"re actually forced to bench anyone), there"s not many choice for supports. Laura+Aran is an noticeable option for the moment being; both will certainly obtain defense, making Aran tankier and Laura… well, it makes Aran tankier, and also they"re basically love interests anymethod. We might adjust this later on once the decisions really open up up.The other Admin-y point we have the right to perform in the Base (that we haven"t already seen) is assign the Bonus EXP we"ve been steadily accumulating considering that the begin of the game. Bonus EXP allows us to add levels to devices ideal tright here in the base. You have the right to use it to compensate for a unit joining at a low level (or being neglected), yet tbelow are better supplies for it. We"ll provide the Bonus EXP system the justice it deserves when an proper opportunity presents itself, but let"s simply say that you could desire to consider holding onto it rather than simply utilizing it to acquire levels in the base.
*
For the moment being, we give some to Aran to press him riiiiight as much as the brink of getting a level. Next time an opponent so much as looks at him funny his numbers are going up (we hope).
*
This is Aimee"s Barobtain list for this particular day. Longbows are bows that can fire further than consistent bows, having a range of 2-3. However, they are less accurate to start with, and there is a -30 hit penalty for attacking 3 spaces ameans on optimal of the Longbow"s lacking accuracy. Basically, they"re simply not worth making use of under any type of circumstances other than being aheight a ledge. Spirit Dust is the stat-up item for Magic - we buy one bereason I have a loooong term crazy plan which might or might not ever involved fruition. Arms Scrolls will offer a character an immediate rank up in whatever before category their presently equipped weapon falls right into.Because we hate Leonarexecute, we offer his Iron Bow and the tattered continues to be of Micaiah"s old Light tome. With the profits we buy her a shiny brand-new one - not a genuine Light tome but a fancy forgery!
*
"It"s favor light however slightly even more pretentious!"We additionally give Aran a brand-new poking stick;
*
We"re done below.
*
We"ve already been north, wright here we met Prince Rafiel and his party. That leaves east or south... Which way? What is it, Volug? Is somepoint wrong? Volug says he senses beorc to the south. A lot of beorc. That settles it then. We"ll head southern.
*
*
It"s a minor character from Path of Radiance!
*
*
And there"s another!
*
It"s time we put these vermin in their location. Are you prepared, Jill?
*
And a third! Who could the Begnion soldiers be attacking out here in the middle of nowhere? Whoever before it is, we have to help them!"Because we"re the protagonists!"(seriously, I"m obtaining a huge Dwarven Vow #7 vibe from these guys)Well, I guess we"d much better start the battle.
*
welp…that is fairly the majority of adversaries.OK, here"s the plan.The goal is to protect the north structure for six turns. The goal itself is basic - Tauroneo will certainly not relocate off that square and also the male is virtually invincible to boot. The trouble is Jill and Zihark. They"re both… a tad suicidal. Fortunately, they"re rather solid (Zihark in particular) yet still liable to take counterattack damage, and if you"re not careful they"ll die, and also that"s a game over. On Hard Mode it"s also worse; tbelow is literally nopoint however luck to soptimal them both from charging headlong into their deaths prior to you deserve to acquire to them. But we"re not on Hard Mode; we simply have to be a tad bold.Edward, Nolan and Aran are going to charge north, backed up by Micaiah and also Ilyana. Their goal is to murder their way to Tauroneo while maintaining a defensive line that keeps Laura out of adversary array. Sothe and Volug are going to charge the ledge prior to the enemy can fortify it. Meg and also Leonarcarry out are going to take a goddamn hike because they"re goddamn liabilities. This mission necessitates effective killing without the luxury of feeding kills to people; tbelow are simply as well many type of poor males and we"ll never kill them all before the turn limit.
*
Sothe immediately hops the ledge and also kills the first guard he meets.Aran brandishes his new toy at the nearemainder opponent and gains more than the requiwebsite 1 EXP for a level:
*
Pretty excellent.
*
Nolan puts a dent in the frontmost guard, and Edward crits an additional to his death. Micaiah mops up Nolan"s leftovers with her shiny new spell.
*
This is a bit of a gamble; if the 69%-to-hit spell misses, Ilyana risks taking a hit unless her Shade ability kicks in.Fortunately, it doesn"t miss.
*
…and she even gains a level! Ilyana requirements several levels favor this to be viable, what through thunder magic"s low hit price and also high weight, and she"s just not going to acquire them.
*
About this point it unexpectedly dawns on me that I forgot to replace Laura"s Heal staff. No matter; she can"t usage it twice in one rotate and this mission ends in six turns, so we"ll be fine. Better remember next time, though. Nolan gets healed.Just for kicks, let"s inspect out the boss:
*
There are a couple of places wright here we can really use among these, but tragically, we"ll be unable to obtain Sothe cshed sufficient to the boss to pilfer it. He"s required in other places.
*
Roll on the foe turn, and the males to the southeastern begin charging our rear line, which, you can respeak to, consists of Laura. We should more than likely sheight them at some allude.
*
Uh oh.Remember the not-particularly-cryptic taunt of the laguz bandit Agony? Beastern people laguz have a weakness against fire magic; all fire tomes are "effective" against them. Volug is ridiculously solid enough to withstand also a few of these in one map, yet they"ll thrconsumed him eventually and Laura won"t always be about.Fortunately, it misses.Some fool assaults Aran and gets doubled, but survives. Two try to hurt Sothe and also are taken to 2 HP each for their trouble.
*
More worryingly, the offensive versus Tauroneo & co begins.
*
A few are stupid enough to attack Tauroneo himself. It does not go well for them. Tauroneo is a General, the promoted form of a knight, and also is Lv 14 to boot. He is accordingly impenetrable, and yet quick enough to double everyone on this map.
*
Jill kills among the continuing to be soldiers through a Hand Axe. Zihark kills a 2nd, and the 3rd is unfortunate sufficient to still be in range of Tauroneo"s Javelin.At the start of our turn,
*
That white armor... Only particular generals were allowed to wear it. I might extremely well know that soldier. Really? Well then, all the more factor to aid them. Let"s hurry!
*
We start our assault appropriate on the ledge. Sothe weakens this male to set the scene.
*
Meanwhile, we have actually our first encounter through an foe mage. Their hobbies include casting fire magic and also dying in one hit because of having actually, choose, no defense.This one drops a Vulnerary.
*
Sothe is joined aoptimal the ledge by Edward, Volug and also Micaiah, that kill one foe each. During which,
*
Micaiah"s lucky streak proceeds.Aran mops up the straggler listed below. Laura approaches him and…
*
…………this game. Aran is healed.
*
Pictured: the assault array of the one opponent that is qualified of getting to Edward. Eexceptionally various other enemy will certainly just relocate on forward.

*
Well, this fire mage assaults Volug, yet it does not count because we"re aheight a ledge. I love ledges.That one guy assaults Edward (unsuccessfully), and also the remainder charge towards Tauroneo. Some attack Jill and Zihark but are defeated. Tbelow are the customary 2 attempts to inflict damages on Tauroneo and also the equally customary 100% faitempt rate. On their turn, weakened adversaries are mopped up and also Zihark actually heals himself.Our turn.
*
Volug takes this guy out, and also Edward and also Micaiah take up defensive positions on the ledge. Edward equips his Wind Edge.
*
These males are gaining unacceptably cshed to Laura.
*
Problem resolved.
*
Laura heals Nolan from the security of a blind spot, and also levels up.
*
Magic, inspect. Requirements; satisfied.
*
As we finish our revolve, a fairly large force is in range of Edward and also Micaiah"s ledge. This will certainly be profitable for us.Unable to reach Laura, the lone soldier to the South instead attacks Nolan, which goes about too for him as equivalent attempts have actually for others.
*
Archers assault both Edward and Micaiah, miss out on, and also are taken to important health and wellness.
*
Then this interfering sod comes alengthy and also heals the one attacking Edward. Well, it"s not favor it"s going to conserve the male, what via him being around to die on the next revolve anymethod.A few leftover enemies linger around the edge, the rest trudge north. In an uneventful Other Phase, Jill strikes a soldier and also not much else happens.
*
I remember we"re meant to be defending, so I send Volug up to hold the northeast entrance. He kills the soldier.
*
In conventional Fire Emblem style, some reinforcements have actually appeared best wbelow they"re least welcome. Nolan circles about so he have the right to murder this one while standing in the other"s method. Aran moves alongside Nolan and attacks one of the reinforcements.
*
Keep in mind the two adversaries to the north, and exactly how they"re standing on sand. Between this impediment to their activity and Nolan and Aran"s blockade of the southern soldiers, Laura has actually a safe zone to stand also in.
*
Sothe and also Ilyana assault the said north soldiers. Micaiah and also Edward proceed their rain of projectiles.Enemy turn, and the conventional flurry of usemuch less assaults comes up at them. Neither of them rather manage to kill their attackers in the respond to, yet, which is annoying because that healer is still there.
*
This poor unfortunate accidentally triggers Volug"s Howl ability. Sassist skill has actually a chance (%) to stun an opponent for one turn as a respond to to being attacked instraight. It"s not anywhere close to as useful as it sounds, though, bereason it wears off as shortly as shelp enemy"s next turn rolls approximately. It does, but, have actually the possibility of giving nearby units some counterstrike complimentary hits, though.More worryingly, though, 3 mperiods assault Volug through fire magic in quick succession. Two of them hit, leaving him at 9 HP. Not great.The usual futile attempts on Sothe continue, and both of the southern soldiers assault Nolan, bring about 2 deaths and also one level up;
*
Eh. Strength is stamina, but…Our rotate. Aran is healed, and also Nolan wanders to the east, chasing off after the enemies tright here.Micaiah is trying to kill that one male that was healed last rotate, yet she can not execute enough damage. Maybe…
*
Sothe"s assistance would certainly help?
*
Goddamnit. OK, we"ll not waste any type of Thani and simply stick to Luminescence. We"d be better off praying for that one percent crit possibility than trying to come up via an alt-
*
-oh. I was joking. Y"know. Before. But whatever. I"ll take this. It"s good.Edward finishes the other guy and…
*
…meh.
*
Ilyana takes care of the straggler on her side. The west is clear, however we"re not out of the woods yet. Volug heals himself.
*
This is exactly how we look as the rotate ends.
*
Hehehehe…The boss advancements, some meras enter the north area and one of them attacks Sothe but misses. The second is eliminated by Zihark and also a third by Jill in the Other Phase.
*
Last revolve, and we have actually no much better different than to have actually Sothe host the entrance. For laughs, we equip him via his remarkable weapon, the Kard, a slightly more powerful dagger via a relatively high crit possibility. For survival against the two mperiods, one the boss, we have actually him usage a Pure Water, despite my earlier suggestion that tright here would be no Pure Water usage in this LP.For their component, Micaiah and also Edward proceed killing human being from the ledge. Edward actually jumps down to complete a guy Micaiah weakened.
*
Volug assaults another guy near Edward, and between himself and the sand, maneras to keep Edward out of variety of the remaining soldier. Nolan can"t fairly acquire to shelp soldier, though, so he"ll most likely live unless he attacks Volug.Everyone says their prayers and we start the final foe phase.
*
It begins!
*
Well, this guy"s arguably the actual threat right here.
*
Thanks to the Pure Water it"s just 5 damage, however Sothe can"t survive being hit by every one of these men at once.Fortunately, he proceeds to dodge strikes from both an archer and a soldier through a Javelin. The continuing to be fire mage ideologies and…
*
When you take no damages from an assault, it not just displays "no damage" yet also plays this wonderful little "tink!" sound. It is the most beautiful sound in the civilization.
*
Aaaand that"s a wrap.…no, wait, there"s still that one male.
*
Now it"s a wrap.
*
Who would"ve assumed we"d meet again in such a desolate place? Sothe, you"ve grvery own. I hardly recognized you. We have actually the majority of catching approximately perform, but for currently, I"ll simply make introductions. This is Micaiah...
*
Step ago. Who are you?Oh, excellent. Just what we need. Lord Izuka, there"s no need for problem. This young guy is Sothe. We understand him well. Sothe, might I introduce Lord Izuka. He is advisor and also close confidant to Prince Pelrental fees, Ashnard"s child. Micaiah! Did you hear that? The prince IS here. Still, I can"t believe we ran right into you three--of all people--guarding the prince. What a lucky coincidence. General Tauroneo, we came below because we heard the prince was gathering forces in the desert. We desire to help you in your efforts. Will you let us join you? Undoubtedly. Daein needs all the courage we have the right to muster. Let us join forces.
*
These human being are suspicious, verrry suspicious. You"re all Begnion spies, aren"t you? Come currently, tell the truth! We"re the Dawn Brigade. We"d never before work-related for those filthy curs! The Dawn Brigade! But how? Then, possibly the girl... No! Could it be? Are you the Silver-Haired Maiden? Do you have actually the healing touch of Sacrifice? Excusage me! Take your hands off her! What a coincidence! Or is it fate? Or probably it"s my unparalleled skill as a revolutionary organizer? With the Silver-Haired Maiden at our side, we"ll sucount win over the people of Daein! And then...yes! Incite scattered rebel activities, mm-hm, and then, better...the future of...readjust... Is he...touched in the head? Oh, my, however yes. I"ll beckon to...no, demand that the vicious scalawags...surrender! Perfect! I am a genius! Come, come, my dear maiden! You must satisfy the prince! Goddess help me, that guy could try the patience of a stone. Hmmm...---
*
*
There"s something around this woman… And look at you! You"re standing? Did the desert dry out your brains? Kneel ye before these royal personages! It"s all right, Izuka. Please, do not stand on ceremony. I didn"t know I was a prince until very recently. So, really, I"m not supplied to any of this. What perform you mean? Until a half year ago--that is, till Izuka discovered me--I was increased as a normal commoner. To be frank, it still doesn"t feel real to me. That I...I myself might be the kid of King Ashnard. It"s a tiny overwhelming.
*
I mean, something around her various other than her… unfortunate… perspective.
*
I"ll never let you be parted from me, no, never before ever before aobtain... Ahem! Enough of the pleasantries, then. Shall we acquire dvery own to business? Well then, Micaiah of the Dawn Brigade. I henceforth apsuggest thee to the article of Vice-General of the Daein Liberation Army! Excuse me?! What do you intend by that? Wait a moment! I appreciate the market, Izuka, yet I"m afraid I cannot accept. I have no war suffer and also no expertise of fight strategies. Daein demands a general through both. Are you not a member of the heroic Dawn Brigade, whose occupations precede them?! Do you not want to save the world of Daein?! Serve the prince, and you can action out of the shadows and confront the empire boldly, without shame! Why hesitate? This is a thinly veiled plan...and I watch ideal via it. You just desire Micaiah to serve as a figurehead for your radvancement. Is that a problem? Yes, that"s a problem! She"s not some fancy stoneware for you to collection on screen. If you"re going to perform this...then I cannot authorize on. Exactly. Micaiah, please, wait! That isn"t what we meant. You"re not the only one who knows nopoint around battle. I do not either. But if I don"t act, the devaterminal of Daein will flourish ever before worse. So, I have to be brave. Please, I"m asking you to execute the very same, Micaiah... For the sake of the future of Daein, will certainly you sign up with our cause? ...Prince Pelrental fees... I will certainly. Micaiah?! Thank you. And in rerotate, will you ensure, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Daein will certainly be freed from the dominance of the Begnion Empire? I promise. I trust in your word.---
*
Sothe, why are you so angry about this? You have to ask? You recognize we can"t live in the public eye. Doing something that will deliberately make you stand also out... I"m just saying, it isn"t favor you, Micaiah. When we were separated during the battle, you changed, Sothe. And I adjusted also. I desire to protect Daein more than anything. Our world have to be saved, and also if I deserve to help in that effort, I will certainly. So much so that you"ll hazard your life and sacrifice that you are? Yes. But that isn"t all. Prince Pelleas cherishes the very same wish that I perform. I deserve to feel it. Deep in his heart, he wants to save Daein. If we occupational together, I recognize that we can carry out it. And you don"t hear that voice we spoke of? The voice that advises you of impending danger? It"s all ideal, Sothe. The visions I check out spanalysis out prior to us... many of them shine with hope. All right. I trust you. More importantly, I think in you. I will not stand up to anymore. But let me simply say one point. What? I will certainly safeguard you. I know that! Why perform you think you need to say it? I simply wanted to make certain you knew.
