Celice and his adorable half-sister.

I guess that no one here knows whether it's 2 turns or 100 turns. Not that it's vital. However, since I got the pairing by accident, I am a little cut at missing the hero sword. At least it's not necessary to beat the game.

I agree that Azel!Tinny is probably the best pairing for Celice from a political standpoint, plus it's one of the pairings I like anyway. But this got me thinking, what happens to holy blood in the future? Since the crusaders were probably around six generations before the game (from the prologue's timeline), there wouldn't have been that many people with crusader blood at the time of the war. But what about several hundred years afterwards? I assume that minor blood doesn't die out, given that Myra's ancestors all still had minor Lopt blood. I know that Julia doesn't have it, just as Julius doesn't have Narga, but I thought this was just something to stop the two of them from being hax characters. So would we eventually see people with all 12 crusader bloodlines in their veins? To crunch the numbers, from holy blood alone, ignoring bases, these people would have:

HP: 220% STR: 50% MAG: 60% SKL: 70% SPD: 70% LCK: 50% DEF: 40% RES: 40%

That's pretty amazing. Make that Major Narga...

HP: 230% STR: 50% MAG: 80% SKL: 70% SPD: 70% LCK: 50% DEF: 40% RES: 60%

So the decendant of Celice x Julia would be packing those growth rates plus bases. I'd worship him/her, but this goes to show that it's just a gameplay mechanic, and extrapolating from it brings trouble.

Minor blood can die out, it happens to Shagall, Scorpio, Dakkar, and Maios.

I love Seth. And Titania. And Marcus. All those great already promoted EXP drains they force to take up a lot on your team.

Or developpers just forgot about them/were too lazy. They gave dain's blood to the ***** in chapter 11 after all. And btw, Ishtar and Ishtor don't have their fala blood too.

We are deeply sorry, but you cannot see anything due to Lady Yuria causing a power outage with Narga.

Someone's Salty.

Sacred stones while easy had the most sympathetic cast of villains in the series and characters were pretty likable. While the game was easy there were quite a few maps that were enjoyable and dare I say it... challenging without grinding (Don't say I just suck, I beat Thracia without save sates >_>), such as the ghost ship.

It certainly isn't the best FE of all time, but it also wasn't bad by any means.

I don't know why I'm argueing, your infamous for hating post FE7 games and I doubt you'll change your opinion, but at least I deserve an explanation why.

Sacred Stones was introduction to the series, and it did a good job of it. It decided to be different and did some things right and others wrong. Now why don't we stop talking about SS and contribute to the topic?

You mean the incredibly poorly handled Lyon and Selena the complete moron? I think "most sympathetic cast of villains" would obviously go to none other than the board we're posting on; not the main ones, of course (although even there at least there's a few minor attempts to make the Lopt Sect look less like pure jackasses), but it's hard not to sympathize with Alvis or understand why Trabant has little choice but to be the ruthless bastard he is.

I felt the whole "Trabant wasn't a bad guy was total BS. He might have had a dilemma, but that doesn't give him the right to be a total jerk. Same goes for Alvis.
