    !. IMPORTANT NOTE [FE!]: 
    	I made all of the maps for easy/normal difficulty. In hard mode there 
    	will be more enemies on each map but this shouldn't affect strategy 
    	much (if at all). I've added suggestions for hard mode since some of 
    	the maps in hard mode have fog of war and there are more enemies etc.
    	Also note that this (v7.0) will be the last version. I'll probably
    	end up making a few minor adjustments/additions here and there but for
    	the most part this faq = done.

    @. Before We Begin [FE*]:
       
    	First off this is my first attempt at a FAQ so be nice. If you email
       me please make sure that the question hasn't been answered on this FAQ. 
       Anyways this FAQ is not to be redistributed/sold or any other crap like 
       that. This is just to help you beat whatever level it is that you're stuck
       on. Also note that I will not go step by step in each chapter as different
       people like different characters. It's up to you to decide which characters
       to use but I will offer some general advice on that matter. PLEASE DO NOT 
       EMAIL ME SAYING THAT THE CHARACTERS I LIKE ARE BAD. YOU ARE ENTITLED TO 
       YOUR OPINIONS ON CHARACTERS AS I AM ENTITLED TO MY OPINIONS. IF YOU THINK 
       THERE ARE BETTER CHARACTERS THAN THE ONES I USE THEN GO AHEAD AND USE THEM.
       THE CHARACTERS I'M USING ARE NOT NECESSARILY THE BEST. One last note, 
       though I will not discuss what happens in cut scenes there will probably be
       some spoilers in this FAQ. If that bothers you then beat the game on your 
       own without the help of a FAQ.

    %. Basic Commands [FEBC]:
    
    Attack:		Choose this to attack an enemy
           3 types of attack:
    		Direct:		Range = 1 ie must be next to an enemy. Most
    				weapons can direct attack
    		Indirect:	Range = 2 ie one space away from an enemy.
    				Indirect attacks can hurt the enemy from a 
    				distance so they cannot fight back if they
    				don't have a weapon capable of indirect attack
    		Long range:	Range varies by weapon and character stats
    
    Staff:		Choose this to use a staff.
    
    Shove:		Choose this to push a unit one space over. Units can only 
    		shove other units whose Wt (weight) does not exceed their own 
    		by more than two. Mounted units cannot shove at all.
    
    Rescue:		Use this to pick up allied, Partner, or Other units and have
    		them travel with you. Though a rescued unit can't be attacked,
    		the speed and skill of the rescuing unit is cut in half. 
    		Rescue can only be used if the unit to be rescued's weight is 
    		at least two less than the rescuing unit's weight.
    
    Drop:		Use this to drop a rescued unit in an adjacent space. A unit
    		cannot rescue and then drop a unit on the same turn. Dropped
    		units cannot do anything during the turn they are dropped.
    
    Take:		Use this to take a rescued unit from another unit. The unit 
    		can only be taken if its weight is at least two less than the 
    		receiving unit's weight.
    
    Items:		Use this to open the item window, in which your character can 
    		equip, use, or drop items and weapons.
    
    Trade:		Use this to give and/or take items/weapons to/from another 
    		unit.
    
    Wait:		Use this to have a unit do nothing for the current turn.

    ^. Special Commands [FESC]:
    
    Talk:		Speak with units that are next to the character. This is 
    		usually how you gain new allies.
    
    Visit:		Enter houses to receive items. But move fast because 
    		enemy thieves, berserkers, and bandits will try to destroy 
    		houses that you have not visited.
    
    Door:		Unlock a door with a door key. Thieves and assasins can
    		open doors without keys.
    
    Chest:		Unlock a chest with a chest key. Thieves and assasins can
    		open chests without keys.
    
    Break:		Don't have a key or a thief nearby? Choose this to hit a door
    		with one of your weapons. Different doors have different 
    		amounts of health and will not open until their health goes
    		to zero. Most doors will take a couple hits to break.
    
    Order:		This command can only be used by Ike to give orders to the 
    		rest of your units (blue units). Any unit that doesn't get  
    		moved by the player will follow these orders.
    
    Request:	This command can only be used by Ike to give orders to
    		yellow (Partner) units. The Partner units will follow Ike's
    		orders once you end your turn.
    
    Seize:		Only Ike can use this to seize a specific location(the space
    		will be blue) and clear the map.
    
    Escape:		Use this when a unit moves onto a space that allows him or
    		her to leave the map (the space will be yellow). If Ike
    		escapes, the map is cleared. If another unit escapes, you will
    		get a little bonus experience (10 per unit).
    
    Arrive:		Use this when one of your units moves onto a blue target space
    		and the objective is to arrive on that space. Choose it to
    		clear the map.
    
    Steal:		Steal an item or unequipped weapon from an enemy unit. Only
    		thieves and assasins can steal. A unit's strength and/or speed
    		might stop it from stealing items. Note that staves are
    		never equipped.	
    
    Chant:		Use this on an adjacent unit that has ended its turn to 
    		give it another turn.
    		
    Reinforce:	Use this to bring in 2 Pegasus Knights and 1 Falcon Knight as
    		Partner units during a turn. Ike can then direct them. 
    		Reinforce can only be used by Tanith and can only be used
    		twice per map.

    &. Order Commands [FEOC]:
    	(Can only be used by Ike)
    
    Rally:		Use this to make allied units who have not been moved during 
    		the turn by the player gather around Ike.
    
    Halt:		Use this to make allied units who have not been moved during
    		the turn by the player stop movement and cancel orders.
    
    Target:		Use this to make allied units who have not been moved during
    		the turn by the player move to a target area. When this is
    		selected the player chooses what the target space is on the
    		map.
    
    Avoid:		Use this to make allied units who have not been moved during
    		the turn by the player avoid contact with enemy forces. Units
    		who are given this command will move as far away from enemies
    		as possible.

    Roam:		Allow yellow (Partner) units choose their own actions.
    
    Halt:		Order yellow (Partner) units to wait in their current
    		positions.
    
    Target:		Order yellow (Partner) units to move to the target area. The
    		player can choose any space on the map that Ike could move to
    		on his own to be the target area.
    
    Avoid:		Order yellow (Partner) units to avoid contact with enemy
    		units. They will move as far away from enemies as possible.

    +. Basic Damage Calculating [FEBDC]:
    
    	This will ignore weapon advantages but here is basic damage 
    	calculation:
    
    	For physical attacks:
    		Take the enemy's weapon's MT(might) and add it to his
    		STR(strength) then subtract your character's defense.
    
    	For magic attacks:
    		Take the enemy's weapon's MT(might) and add it to his
    		MAG(magic) then subtract your character's resistance.
    
    	Why could this be useful?
    		Well it's most useful earlier on when your characters are 
    		rather weak and the enemies usually have basic weapons. If
    		your character is in an enemy's range and you want to see if
    		s/he'll survive an attack then calculate the damage that will
    		be done and subtract it from your character's health. You'll
    		also have to consider speed to see if the enemy's is a lot
    		higher and will attack twice.

    ". Support System [FESS]:
        
       Support Conversations:
    
    	After two characters have had a support conversation their stats will
    	be improved when they stand near each other on each map. Available 
    	support conversations can be done anytime at your base. Each
    	character will have a list of other characters that they can support
    	with and each character may have up to 5 support conversations. Of
    	these 5 conversations, only up to 3 may be with a single other 
    	character. 
    
    	So how do you get new conversations to appear?
    	For new support conversations to become available, two characters that
    	can support with each other must both be used on a certain number of
    	maps. The amount of maps they must participate in together varies 
    	depending on the characters and what support level is next (C, B, or 
    	A). 
    
    	So how exactly will their stats be improved?
    	Well, it varies depending on which two characters are supporting each
    	other. However, the four stats that could be increased are: Attack,
    	Defense, Hit percent, or Avoid percent.
    
       In-Built Supports:
    
    	Aside from the support conversations, some characters have in-built
    	support bonuses with other characters that raise their critical 
    	percent when standing right next to each other on a map. That's right
     	for these to work, there cannot be a space between the characters.
    
    	Characters:			Critical% Increase For Each Character
    
    	Ike and Mist			10%
    	
    	Any 2 of the 3 brothers		10%
    	(Oscar, Boyd, Rolf)
    
    	Rolf and Shinon			5%
    
    	Marcia and Makalov		5%
    
    	Lethe and Mordecai		5%
    
    	Calill and Largo		10%
    
    	Tormod and Muarim		10%
    
    	Geoffrey and Kieran		5%
    
    	Geoffrey and Lucia		5%
    
    	Geoffrey and Bastian		10%
    
    	Elincia and Lucia		10%

    	Janaff and Reyson		5%

    `. General Hints/Tips [FETIP]:
    
    1.	Don't try to level up everyone. Instead, focus on approximately 10-14
    	characters to level up throughout the game.
    
    2.	Don't just keep saving over the same file. Switch between save files
    	so that you can go back a chapter if you later realize you missed
    	something.
    
    3.	Make good use of the weapon triangle. Especially early on in the game
    	when your characters are weaker try to always have the weapon
    	advantage.
    
    4.	Don't overuse Titania. She may seem like the best character early on
    	but that is because she is already a promoted unit. She can still be
    	useful but not as your number 1 character.
    
    5.	Titania can make a good shield for about the first half of the game.
    	If you don't want her to fight then take away her weapons. Just know
    	that she can be very useful in distracting enemies :D .
    
    6.	When Ike class changes use an occult scroll on him. This will give him
    	the Aether skill which is the best skill in the game.
    
    7.	Don't be afraid to buy forged items. You get a good amount of money in
    	this game so make use of it by forging some weapons to help your
    	weaker characters. Just remember that you can only forge one weapon
    	per chapter (starting at chapter 8). Also, some forged iron weapons 
    	should be all you need for most of the game. Then with the tons of 
    	money you'll have near the end, forge some really powerful silver 
    	weapons during the last couple chapters.
    
    8.	Use your bonus experience wisely especially if you are on a harder 
    	difficulty level. I suggest using bonus experience on weak characters
    	that you've just gotten (like Rolf) and on healers (like Rhys) because
    	they will have a hard time leveling up on their own. You can also use
    	bonus experience on characters that are close to leveling up. If you
    	don't like how they level up from the bonus exp, you could always just
    	reset and try again but I don't advise reseting too often.
    
    9.	If you are having trouble with a level, try something else. Perhaps
    	being more defensive (or offensive) will help to beat the level. Also,
    	if you're having trouble try moving your characters around. Have 
    	someone else lead the way or stay in the back.
    
    10.	Try to always think one turn ahead when you're playing. For example
    	when moving a character forward and having him attack, look around at
    	the enemies nearby and use your knowledge of the weapon trianlge plus
    	character stats to predict if your character will be able to survive
    	enemy attacks. Also just hit the 'A' button on an enemy to see his 
    	range.
    
    11.	If it's not equipped, steal it. Stealing works especially well against
    	enemy healers since they can't fight back. And remember, you can never
    	have too many physic staves :D .
    
    12.	When you give a character an item like the Knight Ward don't forget
    	to actually equip the item to the character.
    
    13.	The Full guard is a good item to give to a flier once you get it. This
    	way they won't be so susceptible to arrows. Another possible choice
    	could be to give it to a knight/general since they have such good 
    	defense but little speed. This way there will be almost no chance of 
    	an enemy harming them with physical(non-magic) attacks.
    
    14.	The Knight Ward will increase the defense and resistance of a soldier,
    	knight, or paladin by 2 each. I would advise giving it to a character
    	who you use a lot but I don't think that knights/generals really need
    	the extra defense. Therefore I would give it to Nephenee or one of
    	your mounted units like Oscar.
    
    15.	The Laguzguard will halve the damage done by laguz in battle. Since 
    	you can give it to any beorc, I would just suggest giving it to a unit
    	with lower defense.
    
    16.	The Knight Ring will allow a unit to move again after attacking if
    	they haven't already used up all of their movement for the turn.
    	This item can be very handy and I suggest giving it to Ike. 
    
    17.	Use heavier weapons when you can because they will help increase the
    	weapon level of your character faster unless you would attack twice
    	with the lighter weapon and only once with the heavier one.	
    
    18.	Be careful with your Occult scrolls. Each will be listed as "Occult
    	scroll" in your convoy but when you go to the Assign Skills menu, they
    	will then be listed as the particular class skill that a character can
    	learn. So if you go to assign skills for a promoted unit and have an
    	Occult Scroll, it will show up as the class skill for that character
    	and will take up 20 capacity. So just be careful not to accidently
    	use an Occult scroll on the wrong character.

    Overview:
    	You only have Ike in the first chapter. Your objective is to defeat
    	Boyd and Greil. Simple enough right?
    
    
    Suggestions:
    	Seriously if you can't beat this one then you suck at life :D .
    	Just go and attack Boyd and he'll be beaten in a couple of hits.
    	Heal with a vulnerary if necessary and then do the same thing to Greil
    	and that's it for this chapter.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	You can attack Boyd on your first turn in hard mode. This doesn't 
    	change strategy, though, because you should still only need to use
    	1 vulnerary after beating Boyd.

    Note: 
    	Chris Low has pointed out to me that "in Chapter 1 of Fire Emblem: 
    	Path of Radiance, Ike will start out with 4 iron swords if you don't 
    	watch the "Visit Tutorial". If you do watch it, he only starts out 
    	with one."
    
    Items in houses:
    	1 Steel sword
    	1 Seraph Robe
    
    Dropped Items:
    	1 Iron Sword
    	1 Iron Axe
    
    Units:
    	You start off with 3 new units: Titania, a level 1 paladin, Boyd, a 
    	level 2 figther, and Oscar, a level 3 lance knight. Out of the 3 I 
    	really only use Boyd but it's up to you who to use. One note for new 
    	players is that though Titania may seem really good it is only because 
    	she is a promoted unit. She is still a good unit to use just not as 
    	your number 1 unit. Boyd for me leveled up well so I'd recommend using
    	him a bit but I've heard that Oscar is also pretty good. Anyways it's 
    	up to you whether you want to use all, some or none of them. 
    	Regardless you should use Ike a lot as he is the main character, is in
    	all the chapters, and is really good.
    
    Overview:
    	Just move up towards the boss killing the enemies as you go. Remember
    	to visit the houses in order to get the items from them. Another note
    	is that on the first enemy phase one of the enemies in the top right
    	will destroy the top right house. You can't get there before it is
    	destroyed. I believe that is done just to show that bandits and
    	pirates will go after and destroy houses. Kill all the enemies and 
    	seize the space the boss is on to end the chapter.
    
    Suggestions:
    	All the characters you have in this chapter are decent so it's up to
    	you who to use. I used Boyd and Ike and my suggestion is to let Ike
    	kill the boss.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	There are more enemies so just be a little more careful. Note that the
    	boss doesn't move in any mode.

    Dropped Items:
    	1 Vulnerary
    	1 Steel Axe
    	1 Speedwing dropped by Ikanau the boss
    
    Units: 
    	You gain Rhys who is a level 4 healer. He's pretty good and will be 
    	your only light magic user so I would use him. Just make sure to keep 
    	him in the back out of danger as he will die easily.
    
    Overview: 
    	You start off with everyone except Titania. She will join you at the
    	bottom of the map at the beginning of turn 3. As always just move 
    	carefully and make use of the thickets to add to your evasion.
    	The boss will move and attack when you enter his attack range so watch
    	out for that, though he isn't too strong.
    
    Suggestions:
    	Just mow the enemies down with Ike and whoever else you want to gain
    	exp. Heal with Rhys but keep him out of the enemies' attack range.
    	Titania makes an excellent wall on this map if you take away her
    	weapons and this is even more useful on hard mode.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	There are more enemies at the left so you'll want to stay closer 
    	together at the beginning and make sure to carefully protect Rhys.

    Dropped Items:
    	2 Vulnerary
    	1 Hand Axe
    	1 Thief Band dropped by Havetti the boss (only if you beat the game
    	once already)
    
    Item in house:
    	1 Elixir
    
    Units: 
    	You gain Shinon and Gatrie in this one. Shinon is a level 1 sniper and
    	is pretty good. The only other sniper in the game is Rolf and out of
    	the 2 I prefer Rolf mainly because Shinon leaves the party for a lot 
    	of the game. Gatrie is a level 9 knight and is arguably the best 
    	knight in the game (Ok Brom is pretty good too but Gatrie appears to 
    	be a little better). You also see Marcia, a level 5 pegasus knight, in 
    	this chapter but she doesn't join until later.
    
    Overview:
    	Visit the house to the right and move up quickly. Marcia appears at
    	the left end of the ship right before the enemies' first turn and the 
    	enemies will attack her right away. So you must get to her quickly and
    	have Ike talk to her. If you have Ike talk to her, she'll leave and 
    	you'll be able to recruit her later. The boss will move and attack 
    	when you enter his attack range so watch out for that. Move to the 
    	right on the ship up towards the boss and kill all the enemies to win.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I would suggest using Gatrie as he is potentially the best knight in 
    	the game. However, it's up to you just remember to talk to Marcia with
    	Ike.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	There are more enemies on the ground so you'll have to kill through 
    	them quickly to get to Marcia.

    	1 Steel Lance
    	1 Javelin dropped by Maijin the boss
    
    Units:
    	You get Soren, a level 1 mage, at the beginning of this chapter. In my 
    	opinion he is the best magic user in the game so I'd advise using 
    	him... alot. As with all magic users he starts off relatively weak so 
    	make sure he doesn't get attacked much.
    
    Overview:
    	You start out on the right side of the map with enemies scattered to
    	your left. Simply mow them all down to win.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I would weaken some of the enemies and then let Soren finish them off
    	to help him level up. Usually when an enemy is injured he will run 
    	away and try to heal so use this to your advantage. Make use of the
    	thickets especially with Soren. Gatrie should probably stay up at the 
    	front with Ike to protect Soren and Rhys but other than that I'll 
    	leave it up to you to decide who gets to kill what :D . This is 
    	another boss who will move and attack when you enter his attack range
    	so just watch out because he has a ranged attack.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	There are a lot more soldiers so definetly have Gatrie up front. Be 
    	careful at the beginning and know that the enemies will usually run 
    	away when injured and this is probably the best time for Soren to pick
    	them off >:D . Also, note that they will usually go after Shinon 
    	before going after Soren so I like to keep Shinon in front of Soren in
    	this one. In my opinion it's best to injure them all at the beginning 
    	to help keep Rhys safe and then take them down once they retreat to 
    	heal.

    Dropped Items:
    	1 Hammer
    	1 Iron Blade
    	1 Ashera Icon dropped by Dakova the boss
    	1 Torch (hard mode only)
    
    Reinforcements:
    	1 Soldier and 1 archer appear at the left at the end of turns 3 and 4.
    	3 soldiers appear at the bottom at the end of turns 3 and 4.
    
    Overview:
    	This is the first map in which the objective is to defend and for this
    	time it is 6 turns in which you must defend. So in order to win just 
    	defend the green square for 6 turns. 
    
    Suggestions:
    	It would be wise to attack instead of just waiting for the enemy to 
    	attack you. The enemies are to your left and also below you. I would
    	send Boyd, Oscar, and maybe Shinon to the left to handle those couple
    	of enemies. Keep Rhys in the middle to heal and move down with Ike and
    	Gatrie. Let Soren be behind them to get some cheap kills.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	If you're playing hard mode then you won't be able to see the enemies
    	until they're close to you(due to fog of war). This can make the fight
    	trickier but the same strategy applies. Just note the healhedges on 
    	the left because it would be good to stand characters on them so that 
    	they can heal a little each turn. Also, look at my map because the 
    	enemy positions in hard mode are similar but there are more enemies.

    Dropped Items:
    	1 Poleax
    	1 Vulnerary
    	1 Short Spear dropped by Emil the boss
    
    Overview: 
    	You start off hidden in the thickets with the enemies all below you.
    	There are two bridges in this map to cross over the water. However,
    	there are enemies before the bridges so be careful as they start
    	off close to you. Don't let Rhys or anyone else that's weak near them.
    	Kill those guys and progress down the right bridge. The boss and the
    	two soldiers next to him don't move but they do all have ranged 
    	attacks so be careful of that. Mow down the enemies and have Ike 
    	escape to win.
    
    Suggestions:
    	Um, I'd suggest sending everyone down the right side. The other side
    	could work too I guess but going down the right worked really well for
    	me.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	There are more enemies so keep everyone together. I would definitely
    	try to use Titania as a wall but you'll probably be having trouble 
    	managing all of your items so if you want Titania as a decoy wall then
    	only give her swords since she can't use them. To start I would move
    	Titania one square out of the thickets so that the enemies will come
    	attack you. I would then stay in the thickets and take out the top
    	enemies before moving down. I actually chose to go down the left on 
    	hard mode because you can use the thickets to your advantage really
    	well.
    
    Note:
    	At the end of this chapter Rhys will get a mend staff so make sure
    	he has room to carry it before escaping and ending this map.

    Dropped Items:
    	2 Chest Key
    	1 Steel Lance
    	1 Fire
    	1 Mage Band dropped by Balmer the boss (only if you beat the game once
    	already)
    
    Items in Chests:
    	Right Chest:
    		1 Armorslayer
    	Left Chests:
    		1 Miracle scroll
    		1 Ward Staff
    
    Reinforcements:
    	1 Thief appears at the bottom left at the end of turn 2.
    	1 soldier and 1 mage appear at the bottom left at the end of turn 3.
    	1 soldier and 1 mage appear at the bottom middle at the end of turn 3.
    	1 soldier, 1 knight, 2 myrmidons, 1 priest, and the boss Balmer(a sage
    	appear at the top middle at the end of turn 3.
    
    	Gatrie and Shinon will appear right above the area with the two chests
    	at the end of turn 3.
    
    Units:
    	Mia who is a level 6 myrmidon will join you if you talk to her with 
    	Ike.
    
    Overview:
    	The first indoor map yay! Anyways you start at the bottom right corner
    	and Mia appears right above you at the right door. There are 3 chests
    	in this level and you can get 2 sets of 2 chest keys from enemies. So
    	once you get the keys loot the treasure. Also be careful about items
    	because if a character has more than he/she can carry then you'll have
    	to drop something and by now one of your biggest problems is sorting
    	out all of the items you have. Also note that more enemies come in
    	towards the end. They appear in the top middle and the bottom middle
    	areas. When they appear you get Gatrie and Shinon back to use. Kill
    	all the enemies to win.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I would send Ike up to talk to Mia quickly and then leave him handle
    	the few enemies on the right side of the map(he's probably strong
    	enough to handle them easily on his own). However, ThunderMan has 
    	pointed out that Mia will come and talk to you if you don't go to her.
    	I would then send everyone else to the left and then upwards towards 
    	the treasure chests. When your main party gets near the chests on the 
    	left the new enemies should appear so be careful about the placement 
    	of Rhys. Don't leave him too far down as enemies appear at the bottom.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	Just a few more enemies but the thief appears at the end of turn 1.
    	You'll have to move really fast if you want both the ward staff and
    	the miracle scroll because if he gets both then he'll only drop the
    	ward staff when killed. Other than that this chapter isn't much 
    	harder than easy and normal modes.
    
    Note:
    	After this chapter Gatrie and Shinon will be gone for a while with
    	Shinon being gone quite a bit longer than Gatrie. However, all of 
    	their items/weapons will end up in your convoy.

    8. Chapter 8 - Despair and Hope [FE8]:
    
    Note: 
    	From now on at the beginning of each chapter you will start out at 
    	your base. Here you can move around items and put them in storage if 
    	you need/want to. You can also make use of bonus experience in the 
    	manage section. Bonus experience is given after each chapter depending
    	on how well you met certain conditions. In example how fast you beat 
    	the chapter. So if you want you can give experience to your characters
    	to level them up. I'd suggest using exp on low level characters to 
    	help them become usable and also use exp on Rhys if you want to use 
    	Rhys in your party since healers have a very hard time leveling up 
    	without bonus exp. You can also give characters new skills if you have
    	any such as miracle, vantage etc. An important thing to note is the 
    	conversations you can read in your base. 1 star means that the 
    	conversation is merely interesting/funny. 2 stars means that it will
    	give you advice on how to handle the next chapter. 3 stars means that
    	you will probably either get a new item or new character. A final 
    	thing to do at your base is to buy, sell, or forge items. To do this
    	just go into the outfit menu and select a character. Go to shop and 
    	choose whichever option you want. Your base is the only place to buy
    	items so make sure you have what you need before you leave. Forging
    	items can be useful yet costly. I'd advise making weapons for weaker
    	characters that you want to help level up. You can change weight, atk,
    	critical rate, and even the name and color of the weapon.

    Dropped Items:
    	1 Longbow
    	1 Pure Water
    	1 Red Gem
    	1 Soldier Band dropped by Kamura the boss (only if you beat the game
    	once already)
    
    Reinforcements:
    	2 Knights appear at the top at the end of turn 4.
    	2 Soldiers appear to the left of the boss at the end of turn 4.
    	2 soldiers appear at the left and 1 appears at the right at the end
    	of turn 5.
    	2 lance knights appear at the bottom right and 1 soldier appears at 
    	the bottom left at the end of turn 6.
    	1 soldier and 1 myrmidon appear at the right at the end of turn 7.
    
    Units:
    	Ilyana, a level 6 mage, can be recruited by having Ike talk to her. 
    
    Overview:
    	Another chapter in which your goal is to defend. This time it's harder
    	as there are more enemies and they are completely surrounding you.
    	Also, it is 8 turns to defend now.
    	There are a lot of knights toward the right while only some fighters,
    	myrmidons and archers to the left. The boss is in the lower right 
    	corner and will move and attack you if you enter his range. Ilyana 
    	starts off in the top left area and she always moves towards Ike so 
    	just talk to her when she gets close enough and she'll join. 
    	More enemies keep appearing on all sides on the last couple of 
    	turns so just keep killing everyone till the turn limit is up.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I would send Ike to the right since he should be the strongest of 
    	your characters. Leave him so that the enemies can't get past him.
    	Then have Soren attack from behind Ike. There are many sword/lance
    	knights at the bottom so have Titania or Oscar block off the bottom
    	entrance. I'd have Boyd fight the enemies on the left and have Mia 
    	help him. Recruit Ilyana and use her if you like but in my opinion
    	Soren is much better and so I never used Ilyana. Eventually work your
    	way down to the boss and kill him (I actually had Boyd go back and 
    	kill him after he finished with the few enemies on the left).
    	Another strategy is to give Boyd the Poleax and let him take out all
    	of the mounted units at the bottom.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	There are more enemies on the left so this time I just left Titania
    	block the left. An archer always stood right next to her and no 
    	enemies even attacked her. The space is the one where the inner wall 
    	comes down to, it is the only space you can stand on in the column. So
    	if you have to, just put your weakest character there and don't have
    	him attack. Then you'll just have to worry about the bottom and right
    	sides. 
    	I had Boyd block the bottom and use the Poleax that you should have. 
    	The only problem are the 2 sword knights down there but if Boyd is 
    	strong enough he can handle them with only a little help from Mia. 
    	After taking them out move down and take out the boss to get the 
    	soldier band. On the right I just had Ike block the way with Soren 
    	behind him.

    	1 Talisman
    
    Reinforcements:
    	2 pirates appear at the top at the end of turn 4.
    	1 pirate appears at the top at the end of turn 5.
    	2 myrmidon and 2 soldiers appear by the boss when you get near him.
    
    Units: 
    	Rolf, a level 1 archer, and Mist, a level 1 healer, join at the 
    	beginning of the chapter. Also Lethe and Mordecai become your allies
    	and you can order them around. Marcia appears on the right side of the
    	map at the end of turn 3 and can be recruited by having Ike talk to 
    	her (she'll fly and talk to him).
    
    Overview:
    	You start at the top right of the map while the boss is at the bottom
    	left. There are two houses at the upper left side of the map and some
    	pirates come in from the top. Note no you can't recruit the pirate 
    	who has a name and picture so stop asking. Get to those houses fast
    	if you don't want the pirates to destroy them. Other than that just
    	progress down the map making sure to recruit Marcia along the way.
    	The boss and the two mages by him don't move but they do all have 
    	ranged attacks.
    	Kill all the enemies and have Ike seize the spot the boss is standing
    	on to end the chapter.
    
    Suggestions:
    	Rolf is probably the best archer in the game so I would suggest giving
    	him some bonus exp after this chapter. Another suggestion is to not 
    	use Mist since her only usefulness is to heal and dodge. She has no 
    	attack power whatsoever. Mist really has just one use in this game and
    	that is in chapter 27. She can be very handy there but that's about 
    	it so at most I'd give her some extra bonus exp every now and then to
    	make her useful in chapter 27. Marcia is an ok unit so its up to you 
    	if you want to use her. My strategy was to race to the left with Mia, 
    	Titania and Rolf. Allowing Mia and Rolf to get the kills. I sent the 
    	others down and towards the boss with Soren and Boyd doing most of the
    	work but you can use whoever you're comfortable with. Oh and I just 
    	ordered Lethe and Mordecai to avoid enemies so that they wouldn't 
    	steal any kills from my characters and to make sure they lived through
    	the chapter.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	Pretty much the same as easy/normal modes. However, a couple extra 
    	myrmidon appear when you get near the boss. The boss and the mages
    	still don't move but there will be a knight right in front of the
    	boss that will move and attack when you enter his range. 
    
    Note:
    	After this chapter you will get 20,000 more gold. Use it wisely :D.

    Dropped Items:
    	1 Master Seal dropped by Danomill the boss
    	1 Chest key (hard mode only)
    
    Dropped Items(if you're not going stealth):
    	2 Door key
    	1 Chest key
    
    Items in Chests:
    	Lone Chest:
    		1 Statue Frag
    	Chests by the boss:
    		1 Counter scroll
    		1 Steel Lance
    		1 Short Axe
    		1 Javelin (thanks ThunderMan for this item list)
    
    Reinforcements(all appearing when you get spotted):
    	1 knight, 2 myrmidon, and 1 archer appear behind where you start.
    	2 knights, 1 mage, and 1 myrmidon appear at the right.
    	3 soldiers, 2 knights, and 1 halberdier appear at the top.	
    
    Units:
    	Lethe, a level 3 cat, and Mordecai, a level 2 tiger, join at the 
    	beginning of the chapter. Volke, a level 10 thief, will join at the
    	beginning if you hire him.... SO HIRE HIM!! Nephenee, a level 7 
    	soldier, Brom, a level 6 knight, and Kieran, a level 12 axe knight are
    	also in this chapter but can't be used until the next chapter. Also,
    	there is a character named Sephiran in this chapter but he cannot be
    	recruited.
    
    Overview for stealth:
    	Oh boy... This chapter is a real pain if you want to get the max bonus 
    	experience. In order to get the bonus experience you have to avoid
    	being seen by the 3 soldiers roaming around the map. You can still
    	go and kill the boss and the 2 myrmidons(archers in hard mode) by him 
    	and get the bonus experience. If you do get seen... and you get seen 
    	if one of you're characters or one of your allies(including Sephiran) 
    	is in the attack range of one of the 3 soldiers at the end of any of 
    	your turns. If you are seen then reinforcements will show up and you 
    	won't get the bonus experience. Also, note that if you kill the 
    	soldiers they will still call for reinforcements even if you try to 
    	kill them after killing the boss. The only prisoners you must talk to
    	for this chapter are Brom and Nephenee. Talking to Sephiran doesn't
    	change anything, and Kieran will join your party whether you talk to 
    	him or not. 
    	
    Suggestions for stealth:
    	Scroll down a little for a turn-by-turn walkthrough of this chapter.
    
    Overview for non-stealth:
    	There will be quite a few enemies starting behind you and all of the 
    	enemies can move the turn they appear. So you'll want your strongest
    	characters in the back. The enemies on the right will move toward
    	you so finish the ones that start behind you off quickly so that
    	you can then deal with the ones on the right. Once you beat the 
    	enemies at the bottom talk to Sephiran with Ike then go over to Brom
    	and Kieran's cell. Talk to Brom with Ike and Kieran with Oscar. Then
    	move up to take out the enemies at the top who won't move until you
    	enter their attack range (the knights and Halberdier won't move at 
    	all). The boss and the two myrmidon by him will all move once you 
    	enter their attack range. Kill the boss and then have Ike talk with 
    	Nephenee. Open up all the chests and escape with Ike to end the 
    	chapter.
    
    Suggestions for non-stealth:
    	I would advise keeping your strongest characters in the back to 
    	quickly take out the enemies that will appear there. Then I would
    	block off the area you start in with your strongest characters and
    	slowly advance killing the enemies. The enemies at the top all have
    	lance except for the boss and the mymidons so use that to your 
    	advantage. Have others escape before Ike to increase your bonus 
    	experience but don't take too long or else the extra turns will 
    	detract from your bonus experience.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	The enemies by the boss are now archers and one of them drops a chest
    	key. Other than that this chapter is like easy/normal modes. By going
    	stealth I received 700 bonus exp (the max) and 90 for having everyone
     	escape before Ike. I think the bonus is worth it in hard mode since
    	you won't get too much for beating the enemies. (I got about 120 for	
    	beating the boss and archers) Also, bonus exp is hard to come by in
    	hard mode and can really help level up low level characters like
    	Rolf, Mist, or Rhys.
    
    
    10.1 Chapter 10 Turn-By-Turn Strategy [FE10.1]:
    
    This strategy uses Ike, Volke, Marcia, Titania, Oscar and one character of
    your choosing. It does not bother with Sephiran or Kieran as it has been 
    pointed out that talking to either of them is unnecessary. If you saw the old
    version then you know it needed a promoted Oscar, this version does not. It
    takes a couple more turns as a result but the bonus experience in the end
    will be the same.
    
    Starting Positions (Ike's starting spot is always the same so just use that to
    align everyone):
    
    I V
      M
     T
    E O
    
    I = Ike
    V = Volke
    M = Marcia
    T = Titania
    O = Oscar
    E = An extra character of your choosing. This character will be carried by 
    Oscar up to the boss. Therefore, this should be a strong character that can
    help win the fight and you want them to get combat experience in this chapter.
    
    Directions:
    
    	Up        
        Left  Right 
           Down     
    
    And sometimes for positioning:
    
    	Above
         Left   Right
    	Below
         
    
    Turn 1:
    
    Move your extra character to the right of Titania. Then rescue him with
    Oscar and move Oscar 2 up then 2 right then 2 up then 1 right (This should
    be one space left of Sephiran's cell door). Have Marcia rescue Volke then move
    to the left of Oscar. Now move Ike to the right of Titania. Have Titania 
    rescue Ike and move below Marcia.
    
    Turn 2:
    
    Move Oscar 4 right then 1 up. Move Marcia right below him. Move Titania 4
    spaces right.
    
    Turn 3:
    
    Move Marcia down 5 then right 1 space. Move Titania to the left of Marcia.
    Move Oscar down 2 then left 3.
    
    Turn 4:
    
    Move Marcia right 4 spaces then up 1. Move Titania right 5 spaces. Move
    Oscar down 4 spaces.
    
    Turn 5:
    
    Move Marcia up 6 then 2 right and drop Volke to her right (this should be
    right in front of Brom's cell). Move Titania up 5 spaces. Move Oscar right
    4 spaces then up 1.
    
    Turn 6:
    
    Have Volke open the cell door. Have Marcia rescue Volke then move to the left
    of Brom. Move Titania up 2 spaces then right 3 spaces then down 3 spaces (this
    should be right above Brom) and have her drop Ike to her right. Move Oscar up 
    4 spaces.
    
    Turn 7:
    
    Move Ike down 1 space then have him talk to Brom and right after talking
    choose Direct then Target and pick the spot in the bottom right corner of the
    cell. Move Titania to the right of Ike and rescue him. Move Oscar up 3 spaces.
    Leave Marcia alone.
    
    Turn 8:
    
    Move Oscar up 4 spaces then left 2. Move Titania up 1 space and leave Marcia
    alone.
    
    Turn 9:
    
    Move Oscar left 4 then up 3 then left 1 (this should put him in the doorway 
    to the room with the boss) and have him drop whoever he's carrying to his
    right. Leave Marcia and Titania where they are.
    
    Turn 10:
    
    This is where things get tricky around the boss. Depending on your Oscar's
    stats he may have killed 1 or both of the myrmidon by now and you might be
    able to take out the boss now. If you can, then move in and take him out. If 
    there is still another enemy in the way then you could have your other unit 
    finish him off from a distance. Or, Oscar could take him out and your other
    unit could go after the boss. However you decide to do this, just make sure 
    that you get inside the room on the next turn and are out of the soldier's
    range of sight. Leave Marcia and Titania where they are this turn.
    
    Turn 11:
    
    Finish off the boss and his lackeys if you can. Once you finish them off, your
    extra character can escape whenever you want, just check that the character 
    stays out of the top soldier's range. Leave Marcia and Titania where they are.
    
    Turn 12:
    
    Move Marcia up 2 spaces. Move Titania up 1 and then left 1.
    
    Turn 13:
    
    Move Marcia right 1 space then up 2 spaces then left 3 spaces then down 2 
    spaces. Move Titania right below Marcia.
    
    Turn 14:
    
    Move Marcia 5 left then up 1. Move Titania right below Marcia.
    
    Turn 15:
    
    Move Marcia down 5 spaces. Move Titania down 5 then right 1.
    
    Turn 16:
    
    Move Marcia right 4 spaces. Move Titania right 4 then up 1.
    
    Turn 17:
    
    Move Marcia up 3 spaces. Move Titania up 4.
    
    Turn 18:
    
    Move Marcia left 4 then up 2. Move Titania left 4 spaces.
    
    Turn 19:
    
    Move Marcia up 2 then right 1. Move Titania to the right of Marcia. Make sure
    that Oscar is to the right of the bottom chest.
    
    Turn 20:
    
    Move Marcia up 4 then left 2 and drop Volke to the right. Move Titania left 1
    then up 4 then right 1. Move Oscar right 3 then down 3.
    
    Turn 21:
    
    Have Volke open Nephenee's cell door. Have Marcia go below Nephenee and rescue
    her then move up 1 and left 1. Have Oscar move to the left of Volke, rescue 
    him then move Oscar 4 spaces left. Move Titania left 7 then up 2.
    
    Turn 22:
    
    Move Marcia up 1 space. Move Oscar up 3 then left 3 and drop Volke above
    Oscar. Move Titania up 1 then left 2 then down 1 and drop Ike to the left.
    
    Turn 23:
    
    Start opening chests with Volke but leave the chest on the right in this room
    for last. Leave everyone else where they are.
    
    Turn 24:
    
    Open another chest with Volke. Move Marcia right 1 space then down 4 then
    left 1.
    
    Turn 25:
    
    Open another chest with Volke. Move Marcia left 4 spaces then up 3 then left
    1 and drop Nephenee to the left. Have Ike move above Nephenee and talk with
    her. Have Oscar rescue Nephenee then move right 3 and then up 3.
    
    Turn 26:
    
    Have Oscar escape. Move Ike down a space. Have Marcia rescue Ike and move left
    2 spaces. Have Volke open the last chest. Move Titania up a space and rescue
    Volke then move her right 4 then up 3 then right 1.
    
    Turn 27:
    
    Move Titania 6 spaces right then down 3 and drop Volke to the right.
    
    Turn 28:
    
    Have Volke open the top right cell. Move Titania down 3 then left 5.
    
    Turn 29:
    
    Have Volke open the chest. Have Titania move left 3 then up 6 and have her 
    escape. Move Marcia right 3 then up 3 and have her escape to win.
    
    Now go enjoy your bonus experience :D .

    Dropped Items:
    	1 Master seal dropped by Mackoya the boss
    
    Items in houses:
    	Bottom left house:
    		1 Dracoshield
    	Top right house:
    		1 Killer lance
    	Middle left house:
    		1 Elwind
    
    Reinforcements:
    	Jill and 2 wyvern riders appear at the bottom right corner at the end
    	of turn 4.
    
    Units:
    	Zihark, a level 10 myrmidon, can be recruited by having either Lethe
    	or Mordecai go up to him (Zihark will talk to them). Also you can
    	now use Nephenee, Brom, and Kieran though I only used Nephenee. Brom 
    	and Kieran are decent characters though. Jill appears on the bottom 
    	right corner of the map but she is an enemy so just stay away from her 
    	so that you can recruit her in the next chapter.
    
    Note:
    	The 'B' is where the Black Knigth will appear once you get up the left
    	side to the same row as the house the Black Knight comes out of.
    
    Overview:
    	Ok so you start at the bottom right corner of the map and need to go
    	to the top left corner and have one of your characters stand on the 
    	blue square and choose "Arrive"(a knight is on it at the beginning). 
    	There are 4 vigilantes above you and 1 of them, Zihark, can be 
    	recruited. Note that if you let the other 3 vigilantes live you get 
    	some bonus experience but in my opinion it's not worth it (I believe 
    	it's 50 experience for each one that lives). I would just run up kill 
    	them and let Zihark talk to Lethe(or Mordecai). Just keep moving 
    	towards the boss (don't forget to visit the 3 houses) and stay away 
    	from the house in the middle when you get close to the boss. Also, 
    	make sure to stay away from Jill and definitely do not kill her.
    	
    Suggestions:
    	Kill the vigilantes, the bonus exp isn't worth the trouble. Get Zihark
    	and use him if you want. I prefered Mia instead but they are both
    	good characters. I'd use Nephenee to attack some of the enemies in the
    	bottom left corner. Also make sure to get out of the bottom right
    	corner so that Jill doesn't viciously chase after you like she did to
    	me (ha I still beat the level on my first try though she almost killed
    	Marcia). Don't forget about the house in the top right corner but be
    	careful not to get too close to the house the Black Knight comes out 
    	of (you don't stand a chance of beating him right now). Just use
    	whoever you like and get the job done, think before you move and 
    	you can win this one with no problems.
    
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	There are more enemies below you and there are some axe users by the
    	bottom left house. The main problem is to just move fast enough to
    	get to the two left houses before the thieves do. If you hurry with
    	most of your characters, though, you can make it. A major note is
    	that the Black Knight will move towards you every turn even if you
    	are out of his range. He moves slowly though if you're out of his
    	range so you should have no problems with him.

    Dropped items:
    	1 Seraph robe (2 if you're on hard mode)
    	1 Laguz stone
    	1 Arms Scroll
    	3 Coin
    	2 Secret Book
    	1 Blue Gem dropped by Seeker the boss
    
    Reinforcements:
    	1 crow appears at the bottom right during turn 3.
    	1 crow appears at the top right and 1 at the bottom right during turn
    	5.
    	1 crow appears at the left during turn 7.
    	1 crow appears at the right during turn 9.
    	1 crow appears at the bottom right during turn 11.
    	1 crow appears at the top right during turn 13. A second appears at
    	the bottom left on hard mode only.
    
    Units: 
    	Jill, a level 8 wyvern rider, will fly onto the map after turn 2.
    	She will fly up and talk to Ike if she lived through chapter 11.
    
    Overview:
    	You are on Nasir's ship when you run aground and some crows attack.
    	If you want, you could use Marcia or Jill when she joins to fly out
    	and attack the crows. Otherwise you have to just wait on the ship for
    	the crows to come to you. A lot of the crows drop items and some of 
    	the ones that drop items come in after several turns. They keep 	
    	coming in for a couple turns so if you want all of the items don't 
    	kill all of the crows before all of the reinforements come in. Wind
    	magic and bows work well on the crows but most of your characters
    	should be able to handle killing them. Jill comes with a laguz guard
    	that reduces damage received from laguz so you may want to give and
    	equip that item on someone else.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I suggest waiting until no more crows show up before killling the last
    	one or two. Just be careful since the crows have decent 
    	movement and you have little place to go.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	This chapter is basically the same for all three dificulties. However,
    	in hard mode a crow will appear at the bottom left during turn 13
    	and he will have a seraph robe so make sure to get it.
    
    Note: 
    	As of now I know of no use for the coins except to trade them in for
    	one lousy gold. If someone ever actually finds a use for them please
    	tell me.

    Dropped Items:

    Items in Chests:

    Units:
    	At your base there is a 3 star conversation to read. If you read it 
    	and then choose to allow Sothe to join you will gain him. He is a 
    	level 1 thief. NOTE: HE CANNOT PROMOTE. Therefore I don't recommend
    	using him too much.
    	
    	Astrid, a level 1 bow knight, will join if you talk to her with Ike.
    	Gatrie will rejoin you if you talk to him with Astrid. You can also
    	talk to him with several other characters but only Astrid will make
    	him join.
    
    Overview:
    	If you want to have Ike talk to Astrid on the first turn you will have
    	to use several units to shove him forward so that he can reach her.
    	It is not necessary to do this but if you have the problem of Astrid
    	dieing on the first turn this is the best solution. Move up as fast as
    	possible in order to help out the green units. Talk to Astrid and
    	then have her talk to Gatrie. After that move Astrid to the back 
    	because she is only level 1. In the top left corner there are two 
    	crows so be mindful that they'll move down and attack either you or 
    	green units on turn two. Also note that more crows appear in the top
    	left corner later in the chapter. The goal here is ten turns defense
    	but I would just keep moving forward until you kill all of the 
    	enemies. Along the way get the chests. The later batch of crows will
    	go after chests that you haven't gotten to. However, if you kill them
    	before they leave they will drop whatever item they got from the 
    	chest. The crows will also go after the green square that you have to
    	protect so make sure you don't let them get near it or else you'll be
    	restarting the map. Get rid of all the enemies and wait till the ten
    	turns are up and you win.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I would bring Volke and Sothe along on this chapter and allow Sothe
    	to get the chests on your ally's ship. Then have Volke get the ones
    	on the enemy ship. If you can't get to all the chests before the crows
    	do then just make sure you kill the crows before they escape. The 
    	green units will continue to advance so it might be wise to rescue
    	them so that they don't end up getting themselves killed or take away
    	potential exp for you by killing an enemy.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	Nothing really changes on this chapter. Just make sure to kill as
    	many crows as you can because they give good amounts of exp.

    Dropped Items:
    	1 Laguz Lance
    	1 Laguz Bow
    	1 Killer Axe dropped by Gashilama the boss
    
    Items in houses:
    	Bottom left house:
    		1 Spirit Dust
    	Top left house:
    		1 Secret Book
    	Top right house:
    		1 Vantage Scroll
    
    Reinforcements:
    	Two tigers appear at the top behind the boss.
    
    Units:
    	Makalov, a level 10 sword knight, will join you if you have Marcia
    	talk to him.
    
    OVerview:
    	The objective is to kill the boss. Split your party into two groups
    	with the smaller one heading up the left bridge. Use the main party
    	to go straight up towards the boss. Most of the enemies here are axe
    	users so be sure to make good use of your sword wielding characters.
    	Don't forget to stop by all 3 houses and remember to kill the lone
    	enemy at the bottom right. Make sure you have Marcia talk to Makalov
    	to recruit him and until you recruit him don't put anyone in his 
    	attack range that can kill him. When you get up by the boss he will 
    	bring two tigers out right behind him. They are relatively strong so 
    	be careful up there. The boss and tigers won't move so you can take 
    	them out easily enough with ranged attacks. However, if the boss gets 
    	low health he will run away and heal himself. This could cause 
    	problems if he runs into the river to heal. Kill the boss to end the 
    	chapter.
    
    Suggestions:
    	The enemies aren't too strong, except for maybe the boss and the
    	tigers. So just mow them all down while making sure to visit the 
    	houses and talk to Makalov with Marcia.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	This is another fog of war map. The toughest part is to get to the
    	top left corner for the houses and Makalov. Just race up their with
    	some of your units and you should be fine. Remember that Laguz and
    	thieves have increased vision in fog of war so use them wisely. You
    	can also make use of the torch you got from chapter 5.
    	The boss and the two tigers still don't move at all so just crush
    	them with ranged attacks.

    The numbers on the map indicate the general area where items can be found.
    Just walk around those areas to get the items.
    
    Here's what each item is:
    
    1. Coin
    2. Physic Staff
    3. Shine
    4. Coin
    5. Guard Scroll
    6. Silver Blade
    7. Boots
    8. Statue Frag
    9. White Gem
    10. Stefan
    
    Note for #10 Stefan in order to get him you have to have a laguz step on the 
    space. If a beorc steps on the space then you will only get his sword. The 
    specific space is left two squares from the top right corner then down one
    space.
    
    Coordinate grid for finding the items by ThunderMan:
    
    I'll list them down for you. 28 Spaces on X direction
    (Horizontal)and 18 on Y direction. Left to right and
    down to up.
    
    KEY: (X,Y)
    
    Stefan/Vague Katti: (26,17)
    White Gem: (27,16) (28,16) (28,15) (27,15)
    Guard Book: Y = 1, X = 2, 3, 4, 5
    Statue Frag: Area of 15 squares. X : 26, 27, 28  Y = 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
    Psychic Staff: Area of 9 squares. X = 16, 17, 18  Y = 9, 10, 11
    Boots: X = 11, 12, 13  Y = 16, 17, 18
    Shine: X = 7, 8, 9, 10  Y = 10, 11, 12
    Silver Blade: X = 3, 4, 5 Y = 8, 9
    
    
    Units:
    	Stefan, a level 8 swordmaster, joins if you have a laguz step on the
    	space mentioned above.
    
    Note:
    	All units except for magic users, thieves, and fliers will have their 
    	movement reduced by half in this chapter.
    
    Overview:
    	As you can tell from the map, both the enemies and the items are 
    	spread out. Therefore a good plan would be to split your party up
    	into 2-3 teams. One of them can take out the enemies on the right and
    	get the items over there while the other team or two can handle the
    	middle and left areas. After you get all of the items, beat Muarim
    	the boss, who doesn't move at all, to beat the chapter.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I've heard that you get 40 exp for every laguz you don't kill plus 300
    	if you don't kill any of them except the boss. In total if you only
    	kill the boss I believe you get like 1060 bonus experience. On easy
    	mode you can end up with a little bit more for each one not killed
    	and more for not killing any of them. However, this is no small feat 
    	when you're trying to get the items so it's up to you to decide 
    	whether or not it's worth it to try. Since I don't care too much on 
    	what characters you use it's hard to suggest who to put where. Just 
    	make sure to split your party up to save time and get all the 
    	items+Stefan before beating the boss.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	The chapter's basically the same on all three dificulties but the 
    	enemies are a little tougher. Try to attack enemies when they are not
    	transformed to make things go smoother. Muarim still won't move at
    	all so just hit him with ranged attacks to beat him.

    		Right Chest:
    			1 Physic Staff
    
    Reinforcements:
    	2 soldiers at end of turns 6 & 7 in bottom left corner
    	1 soldier, 1 archer, and a thief at the left door at the end of turn 8
    
    
    Units:
    	Tormod, a level 7 mage, and Muarim, a level 9 tiger, will join you
    	automatically after beating chapter 15.
    
    	Devdan, a level 4 halberdier, will join if you talk to him with either
    	Rolf, Soren, Sothe, Mist, or Tormod.
    
    Overview:
    	To start off make sure you're using one of the characters that can
    	talk to Devdan. This map isn't particularly difficult. Just keep 
    	moving at a good speed because at the end of turn eight a thief
    	appears on the left. Make sure you get to him before he gets to the
    	chests. Other than that just work your way through the map killing
    	everything in your way.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I suggest bringing both Volke and Sothe so that you'll have an easier
    	time getting the chests. I would suggest moving a strong character
    	into Devdan's attack range with a character that can talk to him just
    	out of the range. Make sure the strong character can't fight him back.
    	When Devdan attacks them you'll then have an easy time talking to him
    	the next turn. If you don't do this then you'll have to move your
    	character that can talk to him in his attack range and risk one of 
    	them dying when Devdan attacks.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	This chapter is basically the same for all difficulties. The only
    	major difference is that the thief will now appear at the end of turn
    	5. So basically you'll have to move really quickly in order to get
    	to him before he gets both chests. However, if he does get the two
    	top left chests he should then try to get the middle ones if you
    	haven't already gotten them.

    17. Chapter 17 - Day Breaks [FE17]:
    
    Note:
    	This chapter contains 4 consecutive stages. Though you will be able
    	to save inbetween them, you will not be able to go to your base. That
    	means you can't buy more items, forge them or give out bonus exp until
    	the beginning of chapter 18. You can add two reinforcements at each
    	stage and give them items from your convoy but I don't advise using
    	too many reinforcements because they probably won't be very strong
    	characters and may just end up in the way. Once you add someone in
    	you can't take them out until chapter 18.
    	Also, note that there are a lot of mounted units and magic users in
    	this chapter. Therefore, it might be wise to give some of your 
    	characters weapons that do well against mounted units.
    	A final note is that there are some items that can be stolen, but 
    	you'll need to bring a thief with room to carry more weapons. In other
    	words don't give Volke four weapons to carry.

    Enemy
    Army 14
    
    Dropped Items:
    	1 Antitoxin
    	1 Killer Lance
    	1 Hand Axe (Dropped by one of the reinforcements)
    
    Reinforcements:
    	3 enemies appear at the bottom at the end of turn two.
    	2 enemies appear at the left and one at the top right at the end of 
    	turn three.
    	2 enemies appear at the top right at the end of turn 5.
    
    Overview:
    	Just make your way up the map. Be careful though because one of the
    	enemies that appears at the bottom has a killing edge. Kill all the 
    	enemies to move on to the next stage. Just be careful when you get 
    	near the top because the halberdier up there with the killer lance 
    	will attack when you're in his range and it could be bad if he hits 
    	you first and gets a critical.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I would use a swordmaster or two to take out the axe-users on the
    	left. As I said watch out for the enemies that appear behind you
    	and work your way up to the top.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	Another chapter that's pretty much the same on all difficulties. Just
    	note that a couple more enemies show up at the bottom the turn after 
    	the first 3 show up.

    Enemy
    Army 18
    
    Reinforce: 
    	At the beginning of this stage you may select up to two characters to
    	add to your party. They will arrive at the beginning of turn 3 at the
    	bottom of the map.
    
    Dropped Items:
    	1 Poleax
    
    Reinforements:
    	One lance knight and one sword knight appear at the top at the end
    	of turn 5.
    	Two soldiers appear at the left at the end of turn 6.
    
    Overview:
    	Once again just make your way up the map. In this stage the goal is to
    	have someone arrive at a space on the far right. Notice that there is 
    	an enemy healer with mend and physic. Be sure to at least steal the 
    	physic staff from him. Kill all the enemies and have a character 
    	arrive to move to the next stage.
    
    Suggestions:
    	As I said, make sure to get the physic staff. Other than that my only
    	other suggestion is to make use of weapons that have an advantage over
    	mounted units.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	The soldiers that appear at the left now come at the end of turn 8 so
    	watch out that you don't leave someone weak there for them to take out
    	ie a healer. This stage isn't too hard but I would definitely make use
    	of the longsword that you should have.
    	If you're really having trouble you could just race everyone up the 
    	right side and have someone arrive quickly to end this stage but this
    	stage shouldn't be that difficult.

    Reinforce:
    	At the beginning of this stage you may select up to two characters to
    	add to your party.
    
    Dropped Items:
    	1 Mend
    	1 Elfire
    
    Reinforcements:
    	Two mages appear at the top right and a myrmidon appears at the right
    	at the end of turn one.
    	Two myrmidon and a soldier appear at the right while two mages and any
    	characters you chose to add appear at the top left at the end of turn
    	two.
    	Three lance knights appear at the top left at the end of turn four.
    	Two soldiers and an archer appear at the top left at the end of turn
    	six.
    	Two soldiers appear at the top left at the end of turn seven.
    	Two more soldiers appear at the top left at the end of turn eight.
    
    Overview:
    	The goal of this stage is 10 turns defense. Take out the enemies at 
    	the top and move down to take out the rest. Be careful, as a lot of
    	enemies show up at the top left. Also keep in mind that this stage
    	has many magic users and note that since Ike is carrying Leanne he
    	will suffer a big speed penalty making him rather vulnerable.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I suggest splitting your party in two. Move one team down to take out
    	the enemies at the bottom and have the other team take out the 
    	enemies on top. I would keep Ike around the middle left to keep him
    	out of harms way.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	Nothing really changes on hard mode. Just be careful though as the
    	enemies are a little tougher. Also, just be careful of all the fire
    	mages.

    Reinforce:
    	At the beginning of this stage you may select up to two characters to
    	add to your party.
    
    Dropped Items:
    	1 Adept scroll
    	1 Armorslayer (dropped by a sword knight that appears on turn 5)
    	1 Iron Blade (hard mode only)	
    	1 Nosferatu dropped by Oliver the boss
    
    Reinforcements:
    	Any characters you chose to add will appear at the top at the end of
    	turn 2.
    	Three bow knights and a paladin appear at the top when you get near 
    	the bottom middle of the map.
    	Tibarn, Janaff, Ulki, and Reyson appear at the bottom when you get 
    	near the bottom middle of the map.
    	Two sword knights and a paladin appear near Oliver at the end of turn
    	five.
    
    Note:
    	If any of the hawks die it shouldn't matter. Reyson died in my hard
    	mode game and still joined me in the next chapter (wow though he 
    	really is stupid in stage 4... I mean he just flew up and stood by
    	an enemy... (and of course I let him die to see if he'd still join
    	later :D )).
    
    Overview:
    	Hooray the final stage! Ok just make your way towards the boss and
    	kill him to finally end this chapter. Be careful because there is a
    	mage to your left with the long range fire magic: meteor. You start
    	out in his range so don't allow characters with little resistance or
    	speed to get targeted. You could go take him out quickly if you have a 
    	good flying unit or Rolf with a longbow. Also, watch out for the Bow 
    	Knights and the Paladin that appear behind where you start when you 
    	get near the bottom middle. Tibarn and his gang also appear when you 
    	get close to the bottom middle and will attack your enemies. They can 
    	hold their own against the enemies but if you want the dropped items 
    	and the exp for killing the enemies you better move fast.
    
    Suggestions:
    	Just make your way to Oliver but be sure to keep some units in the 
    	back that can take care of the paladin/bow knights. Oliver uses light
    	magic that will heal him equal to the damage it does. So use someone
    	with high resistance to take him out.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	There are 5 more enemies to start off this stage. That can make it a
    	little harder to move forward. However, once Tibarn and his crew show
    	up you'll have to move quickly if you want the adept scroll that an
    	enemy by Oliver has. Also, note that the hawks will attack Oliver if 
    	they can so be careful to not let them kill him.
    	
    
    Note:
    	At the end of this chapter Ike will class change to Lord 
    	automatically. I suggest then using an Occult on him to give him the
    	skill Aether. That will leave him with space only for one of the 
    	smallest skills and out of those I feel that provoke or miracle are
    	both good choices.

    Side note:
    	Go to the armory and buy a dagger(better version of knife) if you 
    	want. I think this is the first time they are available.

    	Two lance knights appear at the bottom left at the end of turn six.
    	One lance knight, one axe knight, and one paladin appear at the bottom
    	at the end of turn seven.
    	Three ravens appear at the top left at the end of turn 7.
    
    Units:
    	Tanith, a level 10 falcon knight, joins automatically at the beginning
    	of the chapter. Select the option to allow Reyson, a level 3 Heron, to
    	join. You'll gain him, Janaff, a level 8 hawk, and Ulki, a level 7
    	hawk at the beginning of the chapter. If you choose not to allow 
    	Reyson to join then you'll get the Renewal scroll(thanks FAR102777 for
    	pointing this out to me) but I feel that getting Reyson, Janaff, and 
    	Ulki is much better than getting the Renewal scroll. Also, you can't 
    	get the knight ring without Reyson. Rolf, Rhys, and Mist can talk to 
    	Shinon but apparently in order to get him to rejoin you have to talk 
    	to Shinon with Rolf or let Shinon come and talk to Rolf. Then defeat 
    	Shinon with Ike. He will appear to die but will join at the end of the
     	chapter (He'll talk with Ike right after you beat the last enemy) 
    	(Thanks to Flying Dutchman for pointing this out).
    
    Overview:
    	This chapter isn't too bad. Just keep moving forward but watch out for
    	long range magic. Talk to Shinon with Rolf and then beat him with Ike.
    	At this point you probably want to level up Ike the most so let Ike
    	kill the boss. Also, note that the boss is a magic user and will move
    	when you are in his range, so be careful of who you put in his range.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I would leave a couple characters at the beginning to deal with the
    	wyverns and the reinforcements. Just keep going forward with the rest
    	of your party and remember to get the chests along the way. Recruit
    	Shinon if you want and make sure Ike gets some good exp in this
    	chapter since he just class changed. Defeat the boss with Ike or 
    	anyone with good resistance. Defeat every enemy to end the chapter.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	They added some more units including another long range magic user
    	(Those Dastards!). Well actually that's a good thing because this
    	extra sage drops the Shade scroll. So just be mindful that there
    	are now 3 long range magic users and that the one with blizzard has
    	been moved up and to the left a little.

    Dropped Items:
    	1 Killer Axe
    	1 Laguz Bow
    	1 Longsword
    
    Overview:
    	The objective is to kill the boss. However, watch out for Naesala as
    	he is very strong. You must have Ulki or Janaff go talk to him and
    	then put Reyson in his attack range. He will talk to Reyson and give
    	him a knight ring if you haven't killed any of Naesala's crows. You
    	will also get a good amount of bonus experience if you leave the crows
    	alone. He will then retreat along with any crows that you didn't kill
    	after talking to Reyson regardless of whether you killed crows or not.
    	Once he's gone just advance forward and kill the boss. Be careful 
    	about the boss, though, because he is a swordmaster and has the adept 
    	skill. This means that he may gain an extra attack or two in battle 
    	and that could be really bad since swordmasters have good critical 
    	percents. Also watch out for the ballistas since they can do heavy 
    	damage to fliers.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I suggest using Tanith and her reinforce ability. Use Ike's direct 	
    	command to move the reinforcements near the ballista on the left. That
    	way they can draw the fire from the ballistas and get Naesala to 
    	attack them. Move Tanith, Ulki or Janaff, and Reyson up the left(also 
    	you could use Marcia or Jill too if they're strong enough). Take out
    	the wyverns and once Naesala goes after the reinforcements he should
    	be in range for Janaff/Ulki to talk to him. After talking to him move
    	Reyson into Naesala's range and take out the ballista. Once Naesala
    	talks to Reyson he and his troops will leave. If you don't kill any of
    	Naesala's crows you'll end up with about 1000 bonus exp at the end.
    	An alternative would be to kill Naesala and his troops. This is not
    	easy but can be done. A good way to kill him is with the brothers'
    	triangle attack. Lure Naesala in with Tanith's reinforcements and then
    	kill Naesala. However, if you kill him and his troops, you won't
    	get the knight ring or the bonus exp.
    	One last alternative is to just kill the boss and stay away from 
    	Naesala, however, you still won't get the knight ring or bonus exp
    	this way but you could use Tanith's reinforcements to lure Naesala
    	away from you so you can kill the boss.
    	Keep moving forward but be careful with the boss. I suggest having
    	a magic user take out the boss from a distance because he uses a magic
    	sword.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	Some of the crows will begin transformed and one of them is at the
    	bottom right. So immediately that crow will come attack you. If you
    	want the bonus exp and knight ring I suggest having a decoy there to
    	distract it (ie someone who can't fight back... I chose to put Boyd 
    	there with a bow). Also, note that a crow in the middle right will 
    	transform on turn 1 so don't advance too far before getting Naesala
    	to retreat. Naesala will have a laguz band on so he'll always be
    	transformed. Other than that this battle is basically like easy/normal
    	difficulties.
    
    Note:
    	At the end of the chapter select to hire Volke once again and watch
    	him change into a lovely assassin :D . Also, if you are using him
    	quite a bit then don't forget to give him an Occult scroll so that he
    	can learn lethality. You also get 70,000 gold at the end of this 
    	chapter.

    Item at top house:

    Item at bottom house:

    Reinforcements:

    	1 mage and 1 sage appear by the top house at the end of turn three.
    	2 wyvern riders appear at the top at the end of turn three.
    	1 knight at the bottom right house at the end of turn four.
    	1 knight at the bottom right house at the end of turn five.
    	3 wyvern riders at the top left at the end of turn 7.
    	3 wyvern riders at the top left at the end of turn 9.
    
    Units:
    	Check the conversation with a woman and then choose hire in order to
    	gain Calill, a level 6 sage. She's not the best but not bad either and
    	she comes with elthunder, meteor and a knife so definitely hire her.
    
    IMPORTANT NOTE:
    	The boss of this chapter, Shiharam, is Jill's father. If Jill talks
    	to him she will join the enemy again. You can bring her back to your
    	side if someone has an 'A' support with her but I advise to just
    	keep her away from him.
    
    Overview:
    	Another chapter where the goal is arrive. However, this time there is
    	a 15 turn limit. Therefore, move quickly up towards the boss. Watchout
    	as there is a magic user with blizzard at the right. Also, notice that
    	there is a magic user carrying a physic staff. When you can, steal it 
    	from him then kill him and he will drop a shine tome. There is a sage
    	with the long range wind magic at the right so watch out for him.
    	The boss has a tomahawk so be careful because it is an improved 
    	version of the hand axe. After you kill the boss, have someone stand 
    	on the blue square to win.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I suggest leaving a couple members of your party to deal with the 
    	enemies at the top and with the reinforcements from the top left.
    	Have your main party work its way towards the boss and don't forget
    	about the two houses. Also, note that there are quite a few wyvern
    	riders, mounted units, and magic users in this chapter.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	Nothing really changes except the turn limit which is now 20 which
    	really just makes this chapter easier than before. Just look up at the
    	overview and suggestions for how to handle this chapter.

    	2 halberdiers and a sniper appear right above the chests in the middle
    	at the end of turn 8.
    	2 myrmidon and a swordmaster appear at the bottom left at the end of
    	turn 11.
    	1 thief appears at the bottom left at the end of turn 18.
    
    Units:
    	Tauroneo, a level 14 general, will join if you have Ike talk to him.
    
    Note:
    	You may want to bring a restore staff with you since there are some
    	enemies with sleep staves.
    
    Overview:
    	Your job here is to make your way up and around to defeat the boss and
    	seize the square she's on. Split your party up as you progress north
    	but note that some enemies will appear at the bottom right. Make sure
    	to open all the doors along the way and get the chests inside. Be 
    	careful when you get near the top because there is a magic user with
    	a sleep staff and a powerful general at the top. If you can, use 
    	someone with good movement to go up and take out the magic user. The
    	general has a brave lance so be aware that he can strike 
    	consecutively. I would take him out with a ranged attack. Once you get
    	to the bridge that leads to the area with the boss watch out for 
    	another magic user with a sleep staff. This one will move and use the 
    	staff on you. Work your way down and make sure that Ike talks to 
    	Tauroneo who will move when you get close to being in his attack 
    	range. If you can, steal the physic staff from the magic user that is 
    	in the area with the boss. When Ike enters the area near Ena, the 
    	boss, they will have a short conversation. She is very strong but
    	doesn't move so I suggest using range attacks to weaken her then 
    	finish her off with Ike. A good ranged attack would be lightning since
    	she is a dragon. When you've gotten all the items from the chests and 
    	have beaten the boss have Ike seize the square the boss was on to end 
    	the chapter.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I definitely suggest using Volke since there are many chests and doors
    	in this level. You could also use Reyson to make Volke move twice per
    	turn. Just make sure you get all of the items and talk to Tauroneo to
    	recruit him. Also, I feel that the best way to beat Ena is with
    	ranged magic and arrows to weaken her enough for Ike to beat her.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	There are now 3 bishops with sleep and they can be pretty accurate so
    	watch out when you get near them. There are also a couple more 
    	enemies but it's still pretty much like easy/normal modes. Just 
    	proceed cautiously and protect anyone who falls asleep because they
    	will be easy targets for the enemy.

    	1 fighter and 1 cat appear at the bottom left at the end of turn 5.
    	2 sages and 2 tigers appear at the bottom right at the end of turn 9.
    
    Overview:
    	The objective is to kill the boss but it is suggested that you should
    	not kill any of the priests. So if you want you can just push them out
    	of the way but know that the ones with magic will attack. They won't 
    	move, however, so you'll be safe from their attacks if you are out
    	of their range. If you manage to not kill any of the priests you will 
    	get an 'S' level staff called the Ashera Staff and though it only has
            3 uses it is pretty awesome. Note the thief on the left. Make sure to 
    	kill him before he steals more than one item from the chests on the 
    	left or else you'll have to steal the items from him while blocking
    	his escape. Get all of the chests and steal some of the healing staves
    	if you want then kill the boss to end the chapter. 
    
    Suggestions:
    	I suggest splitting your party into three groups. One to take the left
    	one to take the right, and one to go straight up the middle. If you
    	want to speed things up use the chest keys that are dropped along
    	with Volke. Be careful with the boss, he doesn't move but he does have
    	both a killer axe and a killer bow. You could try to steal the axe if
    	you want and then attack him directly so that he can't attack back.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	Well this level just gets more annoying on hard mode especially if
    	you're trying not to kill any priests. In order to move up the middle
    	just push the two priests next to Tomenami up a space and then push
    	Tomenami either right or left. Then push the priest that's behind the
    	sage with bolting up a space and you'll be able to reach the boss.
    	Note that the thief now starts in the left room with the chests. It
    	would be really hard to stop him from stealing the items so I would
    	advise to just block him in there and steal the items back from him.

    	about the first sandbags.
    	2 sword knights and a paladin appear at the top right after you get to
    	about the second set of sandbags.
    	Haar and 3 wyvern riders appear at the bottom right at the end of turn
    	4.
    	1 wyvern lord and 2 wyvern riders appear at the left at the end of 
    	turn 7.
    	Lucia and some paladins will appear at the bottom left (below the map)	
    	once you get near the second ballista.
    	
    
    Units:
    	Ranulf, a level 9 cat, will finally join your party automatically at
    	the begining of this chapter.
    	Haar, a level 11 wyvern lord, will join if you talk to him with Jill.
    
    Note:
    	If you try to go over the spaces on the map that have traps your 
    	character will be stopped on the trap square and will be unable to
    	move, attack, or switch items until your next turn.
    
    Overview:
    	As soon as you start Haar and his wyvern riders will leave the map. 
    	Don't worry though because they'll be back. There's a sage below where 
    	Haar was with a physic staff that can be stolen but if you are going 
    	to try to get it be careful because the sage has powerful wind magic.
    	The sage who drops blizzard uses it so you'll have to kill him quick 
    	if you want his blizzard tome. Also note that the farthest left 
    	ballista throws stones (which aren't too strong) and the two ballistas
    	right in front of the stone ballista are killer ballistas. That means 
    	they have a higher chance of landing critical hits so be careful when 
    	you're in their range. (My Soren who had a speed of 27 but only had 12
    	luck got criticaled by one so I had to restart.) The wyverns on the 
    	far left plus the wyverns that show up later at the far left can 
    	basically be handled by the five paladins that show up with Lucia.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I would suggest leaving Jill where you start with a couple more 
    	characters to take out the reinforcements that show up. The number
    	of people you leave is up to you, as it would probably depend on how
    	strong or weak your Jill is. When you recruit Haar he only has a brave
    	axe so if you don't want to use that yet I suggest trading a lance or
    	axe to him (he is B level in those two weapons). As I said, watch out
    	for the traps and the killer ballistas and just take your time 
    	advancing if you're having trouble. If you're not fast enough then the
    	paladins will probably end up taking out all of the wyverns but I 
    	don't really see a problem with that :D. The paladins won't attack
    	Petrine so don't worry about her killing them. A magic user with
    	high resistance will probably not receive any damage from Petrine's
    	flame lance so I would suggest attacking her first with a magic user.
    	Then you could probably finish her off with Ike or whoever you like.
    	Note that Petrine never moves but her lance has a range of 1-2.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	There are a couple more enemies but that's it. Just make your way
    	left while watching out for the traps and the killer ballistas. The
    	Paladins that come in near the end will have a little tougher time 
    	beating off the wyverns because their skill levels are all so low 
    	(Seriously they'll miss about 55% of the time). So all that really 
    	does is make it a little easier for you to get over there and get some
    	more exp. Petrine is still really easy to kill as long as you've got
    	a magic user with high resistance.

    	Bottom house:
    		1 Nihil scroll
    
    Reinforcements:
    	1 berserker and 1 bandit appear at the top right at the end of the 
    	turn in which you get to the top bridge.
    	1 berserker and 1 bandit appear at the bottom left at the end of the 
    	turn in which you get near the boss.
    	2 wyvern riders appear at the bottom right at the end of turn 3.
    	1 wyvern lord and 1 wyvern rider appear at the top right at the end of
    	turn 3.
    	1 soldier, 1 halberdier, and 1 bishop will appear above the bottom 
    	left house when you get around the trees near that house.
    	2 bandits and a berserker will appear at the bottom of the river when
    	you get close to the bottom left house.
    
    Units:
    	Bastian, a level 13 sage, and Lucia, a level 12 swordmaster, will join
    	automatically at the end of turn 1. They appear at the bottom right.
    
    Major Note:
    	The Black Knight will appear at the spot I marked on the map at the 
    	end of the turn in which you enter Rikard's attack range. You still
    	cannot beat him so make sure you are out of his range. *New note* you
    	actually could have Ike attack the Black Knight. If Ike lives through
    	it, which he should, they will have the same conversation that they
    	would have after the chapter if you don't attack the Black Knight. 
    	After they talk the Black Knight will leave. I still advise staying
    	away from him though because it would be better for Ike to be off 
    	fighting and getting experience.
    
    Overview:
    	The goal here is to arrive at the top left in 15 turns. The level is
    	pretty large and the enemy unit types are varied. Geoffrey and his
    	units can the enemies that are close to them so I wouldn't worry to
    	much about that. There are 3 ballistas on the map but the only one
    	that should hit you much is the one in the middle. By now most of
    	your characters should be able to fend off the ballistas anyways since
    	these ones are not killer ballistas. The boss is Rikard who has pretty
    	decent stats so the best bet would be to attack him from a distance
    	while he has his sword equipped then finish him off with one of 
    	your strong characters. Before 15 turns are up have someone arrive to 
    	end the chapter.
    	Also, note that non-fliers will have to go up around the trees at the
    	left to get to Rikard and the bottom house.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I suggest splitting your party into two groups to save time. I would
    	send one group to the north and then left towards Geoffrey. Of course
    	remember to visit the northern house along the way. The other group
    	I would send over the left bridge and then down to the boss. Make
    	sure this group has someone strong enough to defeat the bosss and make
    	sure to visit the house at the bottom left. Also make sure Geoffrey
    	doesn't die because if he lives he will join you in the next chapter.
    	Don't worry though because he should be able to take care of himself.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	There are a couple more enemies but that's it. Geoffrey and his units
    	should still be able to handle the enemies though one of his units
    	may die. It might take you an extra turn or two to beat this one but
    	the easy/normal strategy still works well. Just split you party in 
    	two and mow through the enemies.

    Dropped Items:
    	1 Laguzslayer
    	1 Purge
    	1 Bolt Axe dropped by Gromell the boss
    
    Units:
    	Largo, a level 7 berserker, will join if you read the conversation 
    	with "Man" at your base and then choose to hire him.
    	Geoffrey, a level 11 Paladin, will automatically be in your party if
    	he survived the previous chapter.
    
    Reinforcements:
    	1 wyvern lord appears at the top left at the end of turn 3.
    	1 wyvern lord appears at the top left at the end of turn 4.
    
    Note:
    	Mounted units and Knights/Generals will have their movement reduced
    	by half on this chapter.
    
    Overview:
    	First off notice the stones. If one hits you it will do ten damage to
    	that character and then it will keep rolling. So if you have another
    	character behind the first one that got hit the second one will also
    	get hit (and so on) Some of the stones on the sides won't just roll 
    	straight down but will instead curve along the paths.
    	Split your party into two groups and head up the two paths. On the 
    	right path there is a bishop with a physic staff that can be stolen.
    	Work your way up both paths, making sure to heal as needed. Check
    	the boss's attack range because he will move and attack you once 
    	you've entered his range. Note that his weapon uses magic to attack
    	so a unit with high resistance will do well against him. Defeat all 
    	the enemies to finish this chapter.
    
    Suggestions:
    	I suggest splitting you party into two approximately equal teams to go
    	up both paths. There are halberdiers at the top left and axe users at
    	the top right so I would have your sword wielders go right and lance/
    	axe users go left. You should definitely have healers on both sides
    	and a physic staff or two may come in handy. There is a bishop with
    	purge at the top left and if you're fast enough you can kill him,
    	getting him to drop it before he's used too much of it.
    
    Alternate Suggestions from AShampine:
    	AShampine has emailed me saying that he found this fight to be easier
    	if you send a flyer straight up the middle while carrying another 
    	strong unit. If you give the flyer the Full Guard and the Savior skill
    	then they shouldn't have any problems wiping out all the enemies at 
    	the top. He has suggested to use only these to units to clear out just
    	about all the enemies so that you can avoid having to deal with the
    	stones. However, I would suggest using this in combination with
    	sending your units up the sides. That way all of your units will
    	still get a bit of experience instead of only two receiving almost
    	all the experience. If you are really having trouble with the stones
    	then you could try to send your units just up one of the sides.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	A few more enemies but everything else is the same. The boulders still
    	do 10 damage each so try not to get hit by too many. Magic users with
    	Physic staves can really come in handy here.

    	when you get near him.
    	3 paladins appear to the right of the boss at the end of turn 9.
    
    Units:
    	Elincia, a level 1 princess Crimea, will join automatically at the
    	beginning of the chapter and, like Ike, must be in the fight. She
    	isn't too strong but has good movement and can wield staves so I would
    	suggest giving her a heal and/or physic staff.
    
    Overview:
    	Aw how sweet, the enemies (for the most part) grouped themselves 
    	according to what class they are. As you get near the boss they aren't
    	grouped as well but until then have your units that are strong 
    	against axe wielders take on the warriors while your units that are
    	good against sword users take on the swordmasters. Keep moving 
    	forward and try to maintain the weapon advantage. Have your best units
    	for each task take the frontlines while having ranged units attack 
    	from behind them. Note that there are two bishops with physic staves
    	if you still want/need to steal them. Also note the swordmaster near
    	the top left. He has a brave sword but a general should be able to
    	handle him with no problems. The boss is relatively strong but Ike and
    	your magic users should be able to handle him since he won't move. 
    	Seize the space the boss is on to end the chapter.
    
    Suggestions:
    	You can take a whopping 19 units with you in this chapter but I don't
    	advise taking anyone who's relatively weak. Focus on using and 
    	leveling up your best characters here(probably about 10-15 units)
    	and leave the rest behind. As I've said keep your strongest characters
    	in the front and try to maintain the weapon advantage. I suggest 
    	having a general go up against the swordmasters and have Ike and your
    	magic users take out the boss.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	There are nine more enemies to start off with. You may want to move
    	a little slower in the beginning due to the extra enemies. I would
    	definitely have someone with high defense (like a general) go left a
    	little so that the swordmasters there will come and attack him. You 
    	could move up a little then let the warriors and paladins come to you. 
    	After you defeat those units, I would regroup everyone and make your
    	way up towards the boss as one big group. The worst part in hard mode
    	is that you won't get those laguz weapons that would really help out
    	in chapter 28.

    Note:
    	Before this fight I would use some stat up items on Ike if you haven't
    	done so already. The fight with the Black Knight will be a little 
    	easier if Ike has higher stats. I would definitely get Ike's skill as
    	high as possible because that will give Ike a little better chance to
    	activate Aether.
    
    Overview:
    	There are a lot of strong characters in this chapter so be prepared
    	with your best characters. Split up your party into two or three 
    	groups and head up the paths. When you open the top three doors 
    	you'll open up the top area which contains the strongest enemies.
    	Defeat the boss and when you are ready to face the Black Knight have
    	someone arrive (ready means Ike should be at full health and have an 
    	elixir)
    
    	Black Knight fight:
    		In this fight you have Ike and Mist (even if you didn't bring
    		her in the chapter she will be in this fight). Ike will 
    		automatically now have the Ragnell which is the only weapon
    		that can hurt the Black Knight in this fight. If Mist is very
    		weak then just have her escape at the bottom. Otherwise have
    		her heal Ike as necessary. If you're using Mist then just have
    		Ike attack and heal with Mist. If you're only using Ike then
    		keep having him heal with elixirs and let the Black Knight	
    		attack you. The only way to really defeat the Black Knight is
    		to get lucky and have Aether activate several times. If it
    		doesn't activate you'll only do about 9 damage at most if Ike
    		has max strength. The Black Knight will regain some health at
    		the end of every turn and if you are unlucky will activate 
    		Luna which will do a lot of damage to you. After several turns
    		some more enemies will show up and may heal the Black Knight.
    		If you either escape from the Black Knight fight or simply 
    		last enough turns against him without killing him (I believe 
    		6?) Ena, a level 10 dragon, will join your party. If you 
    		manage to kill the Black Knight then Nasir, a level 18 dragon,
    		will join your party.
    
    Suggestions:
    	Keep your strongest characters in the front with your ranged 
    	characters right behind them. This is a tough fight so don't be afraid
    	to take your time after you get rid of the thieves. In order to get
    	through the chapter faster make use of the chest keys that are 
    	dropped. The boss starts with a brave lance equipped so if you want to
    	get the brave lance then put someone with high defense a space away so 
    	that he'll have to use his spear to attack. With his brave lance no
    	longer equipped you'll be able to steal it with Volke then just 
    	rescue Volke to get him away from the boss. However, if you don't
    	want to bother getting the brave lance then attack him from a distance
    	while it is equipped so that he can't attack back. Then you could
    	finish him off with Ike to give Ike more exp.
    	The fight with the Black Knight really comes down to luck. If you land
    	Aether a couple of times you'll win but if it never activates then 
    	you'll probably lose. Also, if the Black Knight activates Luna 
    	several times then you'll probably lose. It's up to you to judge
    	whether or not you think you can win. Don't be afraid to escape,
    	though, because if Ike dies you'll have to restart the whole chapter.
    
    Alternate Suggestions for the Black Knight Fight from Kaiser:
    
        Kaiser wrote an email to me stating:
    	Hey there, I've read your FAQ for Fire Emblem: Path of 
    	Radiance and this last time I went through Hard mode on it I found a 
    	very surefire method to beating the Black Knight on Chapter 27. 
    	Anyways here is what I did: 
     
    	Ike obviously needs to be maxed out, if his defense is maxed out and 
    	he has 58 hp he can take 3 non-Luna attacks from the Black Knight 
    	without dying. Mist could also do with D rank in staves for using 
    	Mend. Anyways, all you have to do is equip the Knight's Ring on Mist 
    	and attack the Black Knight at 1 range (With Ike obviously), and just 
    	keep sitting adjacent to him; then you can position Mist below Ike and
    	run north/south healing and parking her 3 spaces away from the Black 
    	Knight. The distance below Ike from the Knight's Ring will give Mist 
    	an extra turn of living from the regular troops if you did not bother 
    	to level her up (I didn't) but I suppose you could plop a Master Seal 
    	on her at level 10 for the extra 3 movement. 
     
    	Anyways, the Knight's Ring is definately the way to go in making this 
    	fight much less problematic; it appears you only get 4 turns 
    	(8 exchanges) to have Aether activate two times. You can use a Heal 
    	staff but Mend is better to have onhand because it counters the bonus 
    	damage from Luna (And that D rank in Staves you can achieve the first 
    	level you get Mist and then sit her out for the rest of the game).  
    
    	-Kaiser
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	Until you open the doors, everything is pretty much the same. When you
    	get to the doors, however, I would definitely have all your units
    	ready before opening any of them. There will be more units in the 
    	middle and some more on the right side. There will be a bishop with
    	a sleep staff at the left side of the top middle room. Try to take
    	him out quickly so that none of your units fall asleep.

    Dropped Items:
    	1 Rexbolt dropped by Heddwyn the boss (this is the 'S' rank lightning
    	magic)
    
    Reinforcements:
    	2 cats will appear in front of the boss at the end of turn 4.
    	1 hawk will appear at the top left at the end of turn 5.
    	2 tigers will appear in front of the boss at the end of turn 6.
    	2 more tigers will appear in front of the boss at the end of turn 7.
    
    Overview:
    	The objective here is to seize the spot behind the boss. Most of the
    	enemies here are laguz so let's see what does good against laguz? Oh
    	yeah all those laguz swords/lances/axes/bows. Also remember that fire
    	does well against beast laguz, wind against bird laguz, and lightning
    	against dragons. Most of these laguz enemies are pretty strong but
    	watch out for the dragons in particular. Keep you strongest characters
    	out in front and watch out for the dragons. Tibarn is an ally here so
    	use Ike to direct him. Tibarn is very strong so he will be a big help
    	in defeating all of these enemies. Make sure to watch out for the 
    	bishop near the boss though because he has a sleep staff. Don't let 
    	Tibarn fly into his range and end up falling asleep on you. The boss
    	has powerful lightning magic so be careful. Attack him with characters
    	that have strong resistance and if you can attack him while he has 
    	bolting equipped so that he can't attack back. Seize the space behind 
    	him with Ike to end the chapter.
    
    Suggestions:
    	As I said, make use of your laguz weapons and use your magic and bows
    	to your advantage (ie use bows on the flying enemies). Also,
    	make use of your laguzguards (you should have 2). Definitely let
    	Tibarn get in some kills too to help you out. Other than that just 
    	be cautious around the dragons and boss and you should be fine. 
    
    Hard mode notes:
    	The most notable change is that there are a couple more dragons making
    	5 in total. Your characters will probably still be able to level up
    	quite a bit so I would not let Tibarn get any kills. Try to make use
    	of the laguz weapons you have and take your time. Ike should be able
    	to handle the dragons but I would still be careful around them. One
    	big note is that the bishop with the sleep staff has been moved 
    	forward quite a bit. It could be very bad if one of your characters
    	falls asleep on this chapter. However, if someone does fall asleep 
    	then you'll definitely want to protect them and possibly use your 
    	dragon's boon skill on them to restore their status. One last note
    	is that the dragon right in front of the boss won't move at all.

    Dropped Items:
    	1 Physic staff (don't get in hard mode)
    	1 Speedwing dropped by Bryce
    
    Note: 
    	Whichever dragon you got (Nasir or Ena) has to come with you in this
    	chapter.
    
    Overview:
    	The goal here is to defeat Ashnard so if you want you can try to get
    	around some of the enemies. At the end of turn 1 you can choose 
    	whether you want to be able to use Tibarn, Naesala, or Giffca. They
    	are all great units so you really can't go wrong here. The character
    	you choose will join you at the end of the second turn at the bottom
    	of the map. Cautiously make your way up the map to Ashnard. Defeat him
    	with Ike and the laguz you chose to beat the game. 
    
    Suggestions for who to pick (Tibarn/Naesala/Giffca):
    	Giffca is the strongest out of the three and has the roar skill but is
    	at level 20. Tibarn is a little weaker but is at level 18 and 
    	therefore can level up and be as powerful as Giffca. Also, he has the
    	savior and cancel skills. Naesala is the weakest but fastest and is 
    	level 17. He can attack from a distance and has the vantage skill.
    	Most people seem to believe that Tibarn is the best but I feel that 
    	him and Giffca are pretty equal. I feel that Naesala is a little less
    	useful because of his lower strength but really they are all 
    	awesome.	
    
    Suggestions:
    	This is the last chapter so there's no point in not using any stat ups
    	and/or skills that you haven't used yet. Use those and bonus 
    	experience at your base to make your characters as strong as possible.
    	Also, make sure to give your characters the best weapons possible (ie
    	silver/killer/brave/'S' rank weapons). When you're done with that get
    	ready for a tough fight.
    	I personally like killing all the enemies so if you're like me then
    	split your party into three groups. Have the strongest group go up the
    	middle with the other two going up the sides. If you just want to get
    	through this the easiest way possible or are having trouble then take
    	your whole party up one side of the map. I would go with the right
    	side as it seems to be a little easier to go up. You can take out the
    	enemies on your path and try to pick off the ones that come after you
    	from the middle. The dragons are probably the toughest enemies on the
    	map so I would advise using thunder magic and having Ike and/or the 
    	laguz you chose to help you take out the dragons. When you're ready
    	to attack Ashnard make sure you have several healers nearby with
    	physic staves. Ashnard's weapon is ranged so I wouldn't put a healer	
    	right behind Ike. Instead just use physic staves to heal. Have Ike
    	and the laguz you chose attack Ashnard and you should win with no
    	problems.
    
    Hard mode notes:
    
    Map Changes:
    	This is definitely the most changed out of any map. The positions of 
    	the enemies are completely rearranged and there are actually 10 less
    	enemies. The left side now just has a lot of Paladins and a couple
    	Cats. On the right side the enemies are now down closer to you and
    	they mainly consist of Snipers and Generals. Right behind the fountain
    	in the middle are 2 Tigers and a Sage with Bolting. Bryce has been
    	moved back closer to Ashnard and Bryce is surrounded by Generals and
    	3 Dragons. There are some Swordmasters and Wyvern Lords at the top
    	right and the Bishop with Rexaura is right behind Bryce. Check to see
    	which enemies have skills since some now have Guard, Vantage, or even
    	Astra.
    
    Notes:
    	I would split up into three groups. I would have Ike and your dragon
    	go up the middle with maybe one or two more characters. The rest of
    	your units should go left or right with at least one healer on each
    	side if possible. I would keep Elincia in the middle to heal but keep 
    	her near the bottom out of enemy range. The fight isn't too bad until 
    	you get to Ashnard. When you enter his attack range he will come and 
    	attack you so I would only put Ike and perhaps your dragon into his 
    	range. If you get Ashnard's health real low without killing him, then
    	Ashnard will move back and 4 Paladins and a bishop with a physic staff
    	will show up at the top. In this mode when you beat Ashnard the fight
    	isn't over yet. Ashnard will come back even stronger and with more
    	health. If the paladins and bishop didn't already show up then they
    	will when Ashnard becomes more powerful. Also, when you beat Ashnard
    	the first time, you will be able to call in one of the Laguz generals
    	to help you. The best way to beat Ashnard is to lure him down lower so
    	that the bishop won't be able to heal him. Ashnard kept going after
    	my Nasir so I used him to lure Ashnard down lower (if you're going to
    	try to lure him down with your dragon then make sure to use laguz 
    	stones to keep your dragon transformed.) Just keep attacking with Ike
    	and the laguz general while healing after every hit and you should be
    	able to defeat Ashnard in his toughest form. 	
    
    
    	Congratulations you just beat the game now prepare yourself for the
    	toughest task yet......

    	maps. Here is how to unlock each one:
    
    	Map			How to unlock
    	Hillside Battle		Beat the game on any difficulty
    	Lonely Isle		Beat the game on normal or hard difficulty
    	Strange Turn		Beat the game on hard difficulty
    
    	There are 3 other trial maps that can only be unlocked by linking a
    	GBA with a Fire Emblem game up to your GameCube:
    
    	Map			How to unlock
    	Desperation		Connect a GBA with an English Fire Emblem game

    Trial Maps [FETM]:
    
    	Note: 
    		I don't currently have the GBA games to link up to my GameCube
    		so I can't list any details at all about the maps you can
    		unlock with them.
    
    	Second Note:
    		Since the Trial maps use character data from epilogue files,
    		your characters will all have the stats and items that they 
    		had when you beat the final chapter and they won't be able to 
    		gain any more experience. You will be able to change what
    		items they have by trading among characters and by 
    		giving/taking items from the convoy. Also, you will be able to
    		use the laguz that you chose in the last chapter.

    Note:
    	Mounted units and Knights/Generals will have their movement reduced
    	by half on this map.
    
    Reinforcements:
    	2 Halberdiers and a Sniper appear at the top left at the end of turn
    	2.
    	1 General, 1 Sniper, and 1 Sage appear at the bottom right at the end
    	of turn 4.
    	2 Halberdiers and a Sniper appear at the top left at the end of turn
    	5.
    	1 General, 1 Sniper, and 1 Sage appear at the bottom right at the end
    	of turn 7.
    	2 Halberdiers and a Sniper appear at the top left at the end of turn
    	8.
    	1 General, 1 Sniper, and 1 Sage appear at the bottom right at the end
    	of turn 11.
    
    Overview:
    	They just had to make another map with falling rocks. Anyways you 
    	should be able to easily dodge all of the stones except for the top
    	middle two stones which will fall down then left. You could even use 
    	the bottom stones on the enemy reinforcements if you want. Just make
    	your way up the hill while staying out of the columns that the stones
    	are in. You may want to leave a couple characters at the bottom to
    	handle the reinforements. To beat this map just defeat all the 
    	enemies.
    
    Suggestions:
    	Keep a couple characters at the bottom to handle the reinforcements.
    	Stay out of the columns the stones are in as they'll still do 10 
    	damage. Other than that this map shouldn't be much of a challenge.

    Reinforcements:
    	6 Wyvern Lords appear at the bottom left and 6 Ravens appear at the

    	6 Ravens appear at the top left and 6 Wyvern Lords appear at the

    	4 Wyvern Lords appear at the middle left and right at the end of turn 
    	6.
    	7 Ravens appear at the middle left and right at the end of turn 7.
    
    Overview:
    	The goal of this map is to defend the square Ike starts off on for 8
    	turns. You get 4 Killer Ballistas with each having 5 uses to help you.
    	However, they aren't very useful especially since only Rolf and Shinon
    	can use them. The toughest part of this map will probably be fending 
    	off all of the Wyvern Lords. They are all pretty strong and most have
    	ranged attacks. The Ravens aren't as tough so focus more characters on
    	defending against the Wyverns. Keep someone on the square you have to
    	protect and after 8 turns you'll win.
    
    Suggestions:
    	You might want to just keep everyone in a semi-circle around the 
    	square you have to protect. Swordmasters will be rather ineffective
    	here, especially against the Wyverns, so you might not want to bring
    	any. Focus more characters to defending against the Wyverns and you
    	should be able to last 8 turns.

    	2 Sages appear at the left, 2 Paladins appear at the top and right
    	sides, and 2 Generals appear at the bottom at the end of turn 12.
    
    Overview:
    	The enemies are composed of a decent mix of Swordmasters, Warriors, 
    	Halberdiers, Bishops, and Snipers. Reinforements will show up at the
    	end of the first 12 turns and Sages, Paladins, and Generals will show
    	up at the end of turns 10 and 12. If you bring magic users, you'll
    	have to protect them very well or else they'll get beaten in a couple
    	hits. The bishops in the corners won't do anything so you don't have
    	to worry about them. This fight is pretty tough but if your Ike has
    	most of his stats maxed or close to it and has Aether then he and the
    	laguz you chose on the Endgame chapter should be able to pretty much
    	handle this fight on their own. 
    
    Suggestions:
    	If your Ike is good enough then you should be able to win this even if
    	it takes a while. The tough part is to keep your other characters 
    	alive as well. So I wouldn't bring many magic users because the 
    	enemies will kill them off quickly. Just try to use weapon advantages 
    	and I'll leave this last fight in your hands :D .

    My Opinion on Characters [FEMOC]
    
    Here I will discuss my opinion of each character and then say whether or not
    I recommend using them. Please keep in mind that these are simply my opinions.
    Also, keep in mind that I recommend a fair amount of characters. You certainly
    shouldn't just use every character I recommend and may even find yourself 
    using characters that I don't recommend. Remember that you can only take 14
    characters with you in the last chapter so I definitely recommend using no
    more than 14 characters.
    
    I. Beorc [FEBE]
    
    1. Ranger --> Lord
       Swords --> Swords
    
    	Ike:
    		Ike is the main character in the game and has to be in every
    		chapter. On top of that he has decent stats and can learn
    		possibly the best skill in the game. Therefore, I must
    		recommend using him a lot. The only time that he should not
    		be used is when he is sitting at level 20 ranger waiting for
    		a particular story event to class change.
    
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    
    2. Fighter --> Warrior
       Axes --> Axes and Bows
    	
    	Boyd:
    		Boyd is usable starting at chapter one and for almost 
    		every chapter afterwards. I believe that Boyd can level up
    		well and end up with great strength and pretty good speed.
    		Another reason why I like Boyd is because he can perform the
    		triangle attack with Rolf and Oscar when they all class 
    		change. Being one of the few axe users in the game (and the
    		only fighter) with his ability to use bows when he class
    		changes make him one of my favorite characters. However, pay
    		attention to his stat increases because he won't be very
    		useful without decent speed.
    
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    
    3. Lance/Axe/Bow/Sword Knights --> Paladin
       Lance/Axe/Bow/Sword --> the weapon the character started with + one of the
    			   others
    
    	Suggestions for which weapon to choose:
    		For Oscar I would definitely suggest bows since then he could
    		perform the triangle attack with Rolf, and Boyd.
    		For the others it's really up to you depending on how many 
    		other characters you have and which weapons they use. If
    		you're lacking axe users then choose that... if you're lacking
    		bows then choose.... I think you get the idea.
    
    	My general dislike of paladins:
    		Yeah I've never really liked Paladins that much because their
    		stats tend to all end up in the low to mid twenties. I 
    		generally prefer characters with a couple stats in the high
    		twenties. However, Paladins in this game are actually very 
    		useful.
    
    
    	Oscar:
    		Oscar can be used starting at chapter one. He is a decent 
    		unit and has good movement since he is a mounted unit. He 
    		starts off with lances and if you give him bows when he class
    		changes he can perform the triangle attack with Rolf and Boyd.
    		Since he can do the triangle attack that also adds to his 
    		usefulness. Overall his his stats end up decent but not great.
    		He is rather useful throughout the game but may lose some of 
    		that usefulness in the last couple chapters.
    
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    	
    	Titania:
    		Titania is also available beginning at chapter one. She starts
    		off as a paladin and would appear to be rather powerful, but
    		remember that she has already class changed. Therefore she
    		can certainly be of use but will probably be less useful than
    		other paladins in the later chapters. For about the first half
    		of the game, however, she makes an excellent human shield.
    		In my opinion she should be used sparingly to attack but used
    		a lot to stand in and take enemy hits.
    
    		Recommended: No, except as a shield
    
    
    	Kieran:
    		Kieran first becomes available in chapter 11. He is the axe
    		knight in the game and has decent stats. He is pretty useful
    		right from the start and if he levels up nicely, he can be 
    		pretty useful later on. One of the main reasons why I like
    		this guy is because he doesn't need bonus experience to help
    		him out when you first get him.
    		
    		Recommended: Yes  	
    
    
    	Astrid:
    		You get Astrid in chapter 13. She is the bow knight in the 
    		game and has the skill which doubles her experience points
    		gained. However, since she starts so low at about halfway
    		through the game you'll probably need to dump a bit of 
    		bonus experience on her. Her skill, however, reduces the 
    		amount of bonus exp she'll need to level up. The problem
    		is that you still may not have enough bonus exp to give her 
    		(especially on hard mode) since there are better characters
    		that need bonus experience and that is why I won't recommend
    		her.
    
    		Recommended: No
    
    	
    	Makalov:
    		When you get him in chapter 14, this guy's stats and level are
    		only Okay. He starts with horrible resistance but should end
    		up with decent health, strength, speed, and defense if you
    		level him up fully. It'll probably be a little bit easier to
    		level up Kieran and/or Oscar whose stats are about equal to
    		this guy's. On top of that this guy is just plain.... ugly.
    
    		Recommended: No
    
    
    	Geoffrey:
    		When this guy joins in chapter 25, he is pretty useful from 
    		the start. If you haven't been using many paladins or just
    		need another solid all-around character this guy is it. He can
    		use both lances and bows, giving him good direct and ranged 
    		combat abilities. What's best about this guy is the lack of 
    		effort you have to put in him to level him up. He only needs
    		nine more level ups and will level up every couple of kills
    		because of his paragon skill. He's not the strongest, but
    		can definitely help take out almost any enemy.
    
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    
    4. Knight --> General
       Lances --> Lances and Swords
    
    	Gatrie:
    		Gatrie is the first knight you get in the game in chapter 
    		three. He starts off at level 9 which is very high for that
    		point in the game but does leave for a couple chapters. This
    		guy is very useful because of the amount of physical attacks
    		he can take without taking much (if any) damage. When fully
    		leveled up, he should end up with great health, strength, 
    		and defense. His speed will be low, but all generals have
    		low speed. Though he may get double attacked by many 
    		characters near the end they won't be able to do more than
    		a couple damage to him unless they are a magic user. In other
    		words, this guy is perfect for fighting basically anything 
    		except magic users.
    
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    	
    	Brom:
    		You get this guy in chapter 11 and he starts out at level
    		8. That's lower than what Gatrie started out at back in 
    		chapter three. Also, this guy's stats generally end up just 
    		a little bit lower than Gatrie's. The one stat this guy has
    		over Gatrie is speed but his speed will usually only be two
    		or three higher than Gatrie's at the end. All of the generals
    		in this game usually end up with speed below 20 so it really
    		doesn't matter. When comparing the other stats, Gatrie tends
    		to be better and I personally don't like using more than one
    		general so...
    		
    		Recommended: No
    
    
    	Tauroneo:
    		This guy starts out as a level 14 general in chapter 21. His 
    		stats are ok but usually end up lower than both Gatrie's and
    		Brom's. He does have the resovle skill but I don't see why
    		a general's health should drop that much in a fight to really
    		make the resolve skill useful. If you decided not to level up
    		Gatrie or Brom then this guy can be somewhat useful since
    		he starts as a pretty high level general but I feel that both	
    		Gatrie and Brom and better characters than this guy.
    
    		Recommended: No		
    
    
    5. Pegasus Knight --> Falcon Knight
       Lances --> Lances and Swords
    
    	Marcia:
    		Marcia joins in chapter 9 and is a decent character. She
    		starts off with low health and usually ends up with low
    		health when fully leveled up. She can be somewhat hard to keep
    		alive while still allowing her to get plenty of kills. Also, 
    		her strength cap is at 23 (which she should basically always 
    		reach). She has good speed and pretty good defense and 
    		resistance. With decent skill and luck I think she is a good 
    		character to use if you can stand to level her up. Also, 9 
    		movement when promoted is awesome. However, since you get her
    		when you get Rolf, you'll probably be giving Rolf and Rhys 
    		most of your bonus exp at the time and this might make it 
    		hard to use her. Because of that fact alone....
    
    		Recommended: No
    
    	Tanith:
    		Tanith starts off as a level 10 falcon knight in chapter 18.
    		Stat wise she usually has less strength, defense, and much 
    		less resistance than Marcia. However, she only needs 10 more 
    		level ups to max out so she can still be useful if you didn't
    		bother to train and level up Marcia. Also, she has a wonderful
    		skill called reinforce. This allows her to bring in 3 pegasus/
    		falcon knights and let Ike direct them. They make wonderful 
    		decoys. So if you're not using Marcia, Tanith can really come
    		in handy and even if you are using Marcia, Tanith still can
    		have some use.
    
    		Recommended: Yes 	
    
    
    6. Archers --> Snipers
       Bows --> Bows
    
    	Shinon:
    		You get him in chapter three as a level one sniper with 
    		relatively low stats. He levels up really well, though, and
    		should end up with good stats at the game's end. The biggest
    		problem with this guy is that you can't use him for almost 
    		half of the game. Because of that fact and also because Rolf's
    		stats tend to end up a little higher I can't recommend him.
    
    		Recommended: No
    
    
    	Rolf:
    		Rolf joins in chapter nine as a level one archer. The biggest
    		problem with this guy is that he will need some bonus 
    		experience to help level him up. He does, however, have a good
    		bow and joins early enough that I think it is worth it to 
    		invest some bonus experience into him. Once he promotes, this
    		guy should be a great character and should be able to survive
    		quite a few attacks. He should end up with decent strength and
    		defense and good skill and speed.
    
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    
    7. Myrmidons --> Swordmasters
       Swords --> Swords
    
    	Mia:
    		Mia is the first myrmidon you get and she starts at level 6 in
    		chapter 7. Her stats are decent but what makes her great is
    		her vantage skill. This allows her to always attack first in
    		fights and when she becomes a swordmaster she will probably
    		land a critical and end the fight in one hit. The girls' 
    		strength cap is two lower than the guys' but she should
    		still end up with great speed and skill and good strength
    		for a swordmaster.
    
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    
    	Zihark:
    		He joins in chapter 11 and starts at level 10. His stats are
    		okay to begin with and he has pretty good level ups. He
    		doesn't have the awesome vantage skill but does have the adept
    		skill which will allow him consecutive attacks occasionally.
    		He should end up with great speed and skill and a strength
    		that's a little higher than Mia's. In my opinion both Zihark
    		and Mia are great characters but it's up to you how many
    		swordmasters you want since they rely on speed and criticals
    		to win.
    		
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    
    	Stefan:
    		Stefan comes in chapter 15 as a level 8 swordmaster. To put it
    		simply this guy is possibly the best swordmaster in the game. 
    		He starts off with the Astra skill which when it activates 
    		lets Stefan attack 5 times in a row with each attack having a 
    		chance to be a critical. Also, He joins about midway through 
    		the game and is already a relatively high level promoted unit.
    		He can immediately be very useful and should end up with great
    		speed, and skill and will probably max out strength. His only
    		downfall is that he has almost no luck and because of this he
    		will dodge less than the other swordmasters. One last note is 
    		that he comes with the 'S' rank sword the Vague Katti which 
    		just adds to his awesomeness :D .
    		
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    
    	Lucia: 
    		She joins in chapter 24 at level 12 swordmaster. She is, 
    		however, the worst swordmaster in the game. She has decent
    		speed and skill but will end up with the lowest strength out
    		of all the swordmasters. If you for some reason, however, 
    		chose to not use any of the other swordmasters she can be a
    		decent unit to have. If you are using any of the other 
    		swordmasters just stick with them.
    
    		Recommended: No
    
    
    8. Thief --> Assasin
       Knives --> Knives
    
    	Volke:
    		Volke joins in chapter 10 at level 10 if you hire him. He
    		is a very useful unit because he can open doors and chests and
    		can steal items for you. He has good stats and should end up
    		maxing strength, skill, and speed before he's a level 20 
    		assasin. You have to wait for a particular story event to make
    		him an assasin but he is still great because he maxes strength
    		and speed so early. If you give him the lethality skill he 
    		will simply become more awesome. 
    
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    
    	Sothe:
    		Sothe joins in chapter 13 as a level 1 thief. He has horrible
    		stats when you get him but has a skill that will make his 
    		stat increases be pretty good. There really is only one little
    		problem with this guy....... HE CANNOT PROMOTE. Yeah so at
    		best all of his stats will end up at a measly twenty. Also, he
    		cannot get the lethality skill like Volke so this guy is
    		pretty useless.
    	
    		Recommended: No
    
    
    9. Soldier --> Halberdier
       Lances --> Lances
    
    	Nephenee:
    		Nephenee can be used starting at chapter 11. She starts off 
    		as a level 7 soldier so she might need a level up or two's 
    		worth of bonus experience if you plan on using her. Overall
    		she is a good unit with pretty good strength, speed, and 
    		defense and great skill. She has the Wrath skill which will
    		make her critical a lot if she's below half health. All in
    		all, she can be a pretty useful unit but I feel that her stats
     		are much like those of Paladins. Therefore, I'd go with a 
    		Paladin over her because they get two weapons instead of one 
    		and also have better movement.
    
    		Recommended: No
    
    
    	Devdan:
    		He joins in chapter 16 as a level 4 halberdier. I compared his
    		stats to my Nephenee who was a level lower at the time. 
    		Nephenee's stats were better than his in every area. This guy
    		does end up with decent strength but if you want to use a 
    		halberdier stick with Nephenee.
    
    		Recommended: No
    
    
    10. Wyvern Rider --> Wyvern Lord
        Lances --> Lances and Axes
    
    	Jill:
    		Jill joins in chapter 12 at level 8. Her starting stats/level
    		are kind of low but she can turn into a pretty powerful unit.
    		It may take a little effort to level her up at first but once
    		she gets going she is as I said pretty powerful. When fully
    		leveled up she should end up with good strength, speed, and
    		defense. If you have the time and space in your team to level
    		her up then you should definitely consider using Jill.
    	
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    
    	Haar:
    		Haar will join in chapter 23 when you talk to him with Jill as
    		a level 11 wyvern lord. He tends to be quite a bit slower than
    		Jill but will have a little higher strength and defense. If 
    		you decided to use Jill then you should probably stick with
    		her. If you didn't use Jill then this guy will make a solid
    		addition to your party because he doesn't require too much
    		effort to level up.
    
    		Recommended: Yes 
    
    
    11. Mages --> Sages
        Wind, Fire, and Thunder magic --> Those 3 magics plus either knives or 
    				      staves
    
    	Suggestions for whether to pick knives or staves:
    		I would always choose staves simply because all of the mages
    		have really low strength. On top of that the various knives
    		are the weakest weapons in the game so your magic users will
    		be doing very little with their physical attacks. Another 
    		reason why not to choose knives is because both of the sages
    		you get later in the game use knives. Finally I find it much
    		more useful to have another character or two that can heal
    		and note that physic in this game is only level 'C' so it
    		shouldn't be too hard to get any of the sages to be able to
    		use physic.
    
    
    	Soren:
    		Wow it seems like people either love this guy or hate him. I
    		think he is one of the best magic users in the game. You get
    		him in chapter 4 at level 1 so you have plenty of time to 
    		level this guy up. He should end up with amazing magic, skill,
    		speed, and resistance so I can't see why anyone wouldn't use
    		him. He also comes with the adept ability so he will be
    		getting extra attacks at times. For a while in the game his
    		really low strength will make it harder to use the heavier
    		tomes but at that point in the game he shouldn't even need 
    		them. By end game his speed should be high enough that he will
    		be able to handle the heavier tomes without much problem.
    
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    	
    	Ilyana:
    		You get her as a level 6 mage in chapter 8. She has the shadow
    		skill which will make enemies tend to attack someone else when
    		she has full health. Stat wise if you've been leveling up 
    		Soren then this girl will be quite a bit weaker when you first
    		get her. When fully leveled up her speed will be a bit lower
    		than all the other sages except for Bastian. She'll have good
    		resistance and skill but her magic will probably be a little 
    		lower than Soren's. She'll have decent strength for a sage so
    		it'll be easier to use tomes but the lower speed kind of 
    		negates the better strength. In my opinion Soren is better
    		overall but she could still be a good unit if you really 
    		want another magic user.
    	
    		Recommended: No
    
    	
    	Tormod:
    		He joins in chapter 16 at level 7 mage. That's pretty low 
    		considering it's about the halfway point in the game. He'll
    		probably need quite a bit of bonus experience to really be
    		useful. He has the nice celerity skill which adds two to his
    		movement but that's about it. When fully leveled up he'll 
    		probably end up with about the same stats as Soren. So I just 
    		don't think he's worth using this late in the game when Soren
    		comes so much earlier.
    
    		Recommended: No
    
    	Calill:
    		Calill comes in chapter 20 at level 6 sage. She has the Nihil
    		skill which will negate enemy skills. Her major drawback is 
    		that she uses knives instead of staves. With low strength
    		knives are pretty useless on a sage so she would be much more
    		useful if only she could heal. All in all, she'll probably be
    		about as good as Tormod but she won't require nearly as much
    		leveling up. If you need more than one sage for attacking 
    		then she is probably your best choice but I'd go with someone
    		else because Calill can't heal.
    
    		Recommended: No
    
    
    	Bastian:
    		He joins in chapter 24 as a level 13 sage. He is probably the
    		worst sage in the game but only by a little. What really hurts
    		him is that, like Calill, he uses knives. He's ok to use if 
    		you really need him but between him and Calill I'd go with
    		Calill because she comes earlier and can level up more.
    
    		Recommended: No 
    
    
    12. Priest --> Bishop
        Staves --> Staves and Light Magic
    
    	Rhys:
    		Rhys joins in chapter 2 at level 1. He is the only light magic
    		user in the game and being your first healer, he will probably
    		see some use early on. Even with this, however, he will still
    		need a lot of bonus exp if you want him to reach level 20
    		before being promoted. I would advise to just heal whenever
    		you can with this guy in order to help him level up. He'll
    		need to be protected for quite some time and has low speed for
    		most of the game. He does become pretty useful once promoted
    		and has great magic and resistance. His speed should get over
    		20 but I'd watch it once he becomes a bishop because he'll be
    		a lot less useful if his speed is under 20 late in the game.
    		Overall, though, he's the best healer in the game and should
    		easily get an 'S' rank in staves/light magic.
    
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    
    13. Cleric --> Valkyrie
        Staves --> Staves and Swords
    
    	Note: Wait.... SWORDS??? *Sigh* it seems like they just keep making
    	      Valkyries less and less useful since they have really low 
    	      strength.
    
    	Mist:
    		Mist joins in chapter 9 at level 1 and is utter crap!
    		Seriously since she can only heal until promoted, she will
    		need a ton of bonus exp to level up. Then once promoted she
    		uses swords and not magic and has really low strength. Some 
    		people will argue that she is the best character to have using
    		magic swords but to get her to be able to use magic swords her
    		sword level will probably have to be increased via arms 
    		scrolls. People then argue that she has good speed and 
    		resistance and makes a good decoy against enemy magic users 
    		but so do the other magic users you have and they can actually
    		fight back with magic. In the end this girl has one use and
    		that is in chapter 27. If you actually level her up she can
    		heal Ike making the fight with the Black Knight a little 
    		easier. However, elixirs will probably be almost as useful in 
    		that fight and the fight will still come down to whether or
    		not Ike's Aether skill activates several times.
    
    		Recommended: No
    
    14. Beserker
        Axes
    
    	Largo:
    		He joins in chapter 25 at level 7 beserker. He's one of the 
    		few axe users in the game so that can make him somewhat 
    		useful. When fully leveled up he'll be about as good as Boyd.
    		He will have great health and strength with decent speed. His
    		defense is really low, however, so if he doesn't dodge then
    		he's going to take a decent amount of damage. Overall, I think
    		he can be a good unit if you're not using Boyd but I would go
    		with Boyd over this guy because you have Boyd throughout the 
    		game and Boyd can also use bows.
    
    		Recommended: No
    
    
    15. Princess Crimea
        Swords and Staves
    
    	Elincia:
    		Elincia joins in chapter 26 at level 1. Her stats are ok but
    		if you want to use her you'll probably need to level her up
    		a little with bonus experience. She has her own sword which
    		acts like a brave sword but with unlimited uses. It's not as
    		useful as you would think, though, because Elincia has very
    		low strength. This girl's main purpose is to be a flying
    		healer. When leveled up she'll have good magic, speed, and
    		resistance. Right from the start she can use physic staves so
    		she works nicely as an extra healer if you need it.
    
    		Recommended: Yes, as a healer
    
    
    II. Laguz [FELA]
        Recommended: No.......     Oh wait I'm supposed to talk about these guys
    		 	       individually :D 
    
        Note:
    	Laguz do not promote in case you were wondering, so they should be 
    	treated like promoted units.
    
        Strengths:
    	When transformed, their stats improve significantly and they can be 
    	quite powerful. Their movement is good when not transformed and great 
    	when transformed (with the exception of dragons). With Laguz you don't
    	have to worry about their weapons since they are their own weapons.
    	The demi band will allow a Laguz to stay transformed at all times.
    
    
        Weaknesses:
    	With only one demi band, the laguz that don't get it won't be able to 
    	do a lot of attacking and stay tranformed at the same time. Also note
    	that laguz don't get weapons to add to their attack. Their 
    	claws/beaks/breath give them a decent boost in attack but not as 
    	much as a good weapon (especially if the weapon has the advantage). 
    	Laguz aren't weak against much but then again they don't really excel
    	at killing anything in particular. A big problem with laguz is that 
    	they don't gain experience very quickly. This can hurt you early on in
    	the game if you let them kill too much and this is really harmful in 
    	hard mode since experience is already much harder to get. 
    
        Overall: 
    	Laguz are decent characters but I wouldn't use more than a couple of 
    	them in one playthrough and try not to let them get all of the 
    	experience early on. I feel that they should be treated like promoted 
    	units and used accordingly.
    
    1. Cat
       Claws
    
    	Lethe:
    		Lethe is a level 3 cat who joins in chapter 10. She transforms
    		into laguz form at the beginning of each map. This can make 
    		her pretty useful early on in fights but as you get nearer to
    		the end she will tranform back into a person and become 
    		useless. She has good health but her other stats are usually
    		lower than Ranulf's. So in other words she's nothing special 
    		and not really worth using much.
    
    		Recommended: No
    
    	Ranulf:
    		After being beaten by random villagers with a combined attack
    		strength that's probably below 2 in chapter 10, he joins your
    		party in chapter 23 at level 9. This guys transforms into 
    		laguz form after a couple turns and when leveled up fully will
    		be a little better than Lethe in just about every area. He'll
    		be a great character that can help if you're having trouble
    		in a chapter but may not be as useful if you've already got
    		your final team set up.
    	
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    
    2. Tiger
       Claw
    
    
    	Mordecai:
    		He joins in chapter 10 at level 2. He has great strength and
    		health but his other stats are lousy until he transforms. 
    		His biggest problem is that he transforms late in chapters. 
    		Thus he will be useless early on in chapters unless you give 
    		him the demi band when you get it. The demi band is actually
    		decent on this guy so he can be quite useful once you get it.
    		His high strength and defense make this guy a powerhouse if
    		you level him up fully.
    
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    
    	Muarim:
    		Muarim joins in chapter 16 at level 9. He appears to generally
    		just be a weaker version of Mordecai but a little faster 
    		so between the two I would go with Mordecai.
    
    		Recommended: No
    
    3. Hawks
       Beak
    
    
    	Janaff:
    		Janaff comes in chapter 18 at level 8. He has good health and
    		decent speed. His other stats generally aren't as good but
    		he does transform early and then his speed will be even better. 
    		He's got good movement but is weak against bows and obviously 
    		you can't equip him with both the demi band and the full guard.
    		So in the end, he may help out a little but is nothing special.
    
    		Recommended: No
    
    	
    	Ulki:
    		He joins in chapter 18 at level 7. He's a little better than
    		Janaff but transforms later. Both of the hawks have great
    		speed when transformed but their other stats are only decent.
    		Keep them away from bows and wind magic and either of these
    		units can be decent if you really need them.  
    
    		Recommended: No
    
    
    4.Heron
    
    	
    	Reyson:
    		Reyson comes in chapter 18 at level 3. He transforms rather
    		late and can't even use the demi band. However, this guy's not
    		meant for fighting so he is still pretty useful while not 
    		transformed. He has the chant skill which he can use to make
    		characters move again (1 character when not transformed and up
    		to 4 when transformed). Though this isn't truly needed, it can
    		come in handy. Reyson can also heal characters that stand next
    		to him. He's quite useful but needs to stay near the rear
    		because of his low defense and only average speed.
    
    
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    
    5. Dragon
       Breath
    
    	
    	Ena: 
    		You get Ena in chapter 28 at level 10 if you didn't beat the 
    		Black Knight. She has great health with decent strength and
    		defense. She can level up ten more times but since she 
    		transforms rather late, has poor movement, and only 2 chapters
    		to gain experience she probably won't make it to level 20. Her
    		skills are all decent and she's about as good as Nasir.
    		However, in order to get her you have to lose to the Black
    		Knight :\ .
    
    		Recommended: No
    
    
    	Nasir:
    		Nasir joins in chapter 28 at level 18 if you beat the Black
    		Knight. He'll end up a little weaker than a fully leveled up
    		Ena but as I said it'll be hard to level up Ena that much.
    		Like Ena, Nasir has poor movement and transforms rather late.
    		Neither one of these two units are of much use because of 
    		their poor movement but I'll recommend Nasir because you get 
    		him if you beat the Black Knight. Note that this guy is quite
    		powerful when transformed and can hurt Ashnard. If you can
    		manage to get this guy up to the front he'll be a great help.
    	
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    6. The 3 final chapter characters
      
    	
    	Giffca:
    		Giffca is a level 20 lion. He's the strongest of the 3 laguz 
    		you can choose from. Basically all of his stats are more than 
    		great and he simply looks cool. 
    
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    
    	Naesala:
    		Naesala is a level 17 crow (thanks to verasteguikid for 
    		correcting me). He has the best speed and is the
    		only one of the three who can attack from a distance. He is 
    		the weakest of the three but is still very powerful.
    
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    
    	Tibarn:
    		Tibarn is a level 18 hawk and the only one of the three that
    		can level up(twice). He is a little weaker but faster than 
    		Giffca and a little slower but stronger than Naesala. He has
    		the cancel skill which can stop him from taking any damage.
    		Basically this guy is all around great like the other two.
    
    		Recommended: Yes
    
    
    	Wait..... did he just recommend all three? 
    	Yeah I did but that's because they are all great and you really can't
    	go wrong in your choice. Therefore this decision is totally up to you.

    Info + My Opinion on Skills [FES]:
    
    Model:
       Skill name (in alphabetical order inside of capacity groupings)
       Character(s) who come(s) with the skill
    
    		Description etc..
    
    A note on capacity:
    	All promoted units except for Paladins and flying units will have a 
    	max capacity of 25. Paladins and promoted flyers will only have a max
    	capacity of 20.
    
    	Unpromoted units will have a capacity of 20 excpet for mounted units
    	and flyers who will have a capacity of 15. 
    
    	Laguz will have a capacity of 25 except for dragons and herons who 
    	have a capacity of 40.
    
    	The only way to increase capacity is for a unit to promote. When they
    	promote they gain 5 more capacity. 
    
    
    1. 5 Capacity Skills [FE5C]:
    
    
    	Miracle:
    	Mist, Ena
    
    		Miracle will give your character a chance to survive a fatal
    		blow. If the blow would be fatal and Miracle activates then
    		it will cut the damage in half. However, Miracle's chance of
    		activating is the character's luck turned into a percent. 
    		It can be a decent skill to give to a character with high luck
    		but don't count on it activating much.
    
    
    	Parity:
    	Lucia
    
    		Parity cancels skills, terrain bonuses, and supports for both
    		the character who has this skill and any enemy s/he faces in
    		a fight. Yes that's right this thing will cancel out that 
    		other skill you gave to your character and also cancel out
    		any supports. In my opinion this skill will hurt you much
    		more than it could help so I would not give this to anyone.
    
    
    	Provoke:
    	Shinon	
    
    		Provoke will make enemies tend to go after the character that
    		has this skill if they can. This can be useful if you want 
    		a certain character to get most of the kills. I feel that this
    		skill could go well with the Aether skill that you should give
    		to Ike.
    
    
    	Serenity:
    	Rhys, Devdan
    
    		Serenity is the opposite of Tempest. It halves the effect of
    		biorhythm. This, however, is not one of the skill scrolls you 
    		get in the game. Biorhythm never really seemed to be much
    		of a factor in my playthroughs so you may just want to get
    		rid of this skill.
    
    
    	Shade:
    	Volke, Ilyana
    
    		Shade is the opposite of Provoke. Enemies will tend to not go
    		after the character with this skill. However, this skill will
    		not work so well if your character doesn't have about full
    		health. Also, if the character with this skill is the only
    		character that an enemy can attack then they still will attack
    		the character with this skill. I believe this skill would 
    		probably work best on a magic user.
    
    
    	Tempest:
    	Boyd, Makalov
    
    		Tempest simply doubles the effect of biorhythm. You don't get
    		a Tempest scroll, however, so you don't have to worry about
    		giving this skill to anyone. At most you'll be considering 
    		getting rid of this for something better on them.
    
    
    2. 10 Capacity Skills [FE10C]:
    
    
    	Adept:
    	Soren, Zihark
    
    		Adept's chance of activating equals a character's skill as a
    		percent and upon activating will give the character with this 
    		skill a second consecutive attack. This skill can really come 
    		in handy when it activates as it can possibly make you kill an
     		enemy before they can even counter attack. Don't count on it 
    		activating but it will activate a fair amount of times if you 
    		give it to someone with decent skill. This skill could work 
    		well on just about anyone but might be best with someone who's
    		strong but might not always be able to attack twice.
    
    
    	Corrosion:
    	Bastian
    		
    		Corrosion will reduce the amount of uses of an enemy weapon
    		by 5. Why would you need this?... I.... don't..... know.
    		Basically every enemy should be killed before their weapon
    		even comes close to running out. Therefore, in my opinion, 
    		this skill is absolutely useless.
    		
    
    	Counter:
    	Titania
    		
    		Counter will sometimes hurt the enemy with half of the damage 
    		the unit with this receives in an attack. This skill doesn't 
    		activate too often, though, as it's activation chance equals
    		(skill/2) as a percent and I can't see it being too useful. I 
    		guess if you have a character that usually takes a bit of 
    		damage, you could give this skill to him/her.
    
    
    	Gamble:
    	Kieran
    
    		Gamble will be an option you can choose when you can attack
    		an enemy. Gamble will reduce your hit % by half and double
    		your critical %. This skill may seem really great but when
    		you attack the game generates a random number and compares
    		it with your hit %. If your hit % is high enough, then you
    		will hit the enemy and the game will then compare the random
    		number to your critical % to see if you will also critical the
    		enemy. So with this skill reducing your hit percentage in half
    		you'll at best have a 50/50 shot at hitting the enemy.
    		However, if you land a hit and have this skill on say a 
    		swordmaster then you'll probably land a critical. So overall
    		it's an ok skill but I wouldn't use it too much.
    
    
    	Guard:
    	Haar
    	
    		Guard will sometimes activate when the character with this
    		skill lands a hit and will prevent the enemy from counter
    		attacking. It's a decent skill but it always seemed to 
    		activate for me after the enemy already hit me and wouldn't	
    		attack again anyways. This skill could be a decent addition
    		to most characters but don't give it to an archer since most
    		of the time they won't even be able to be counter attacked.
    		Put a percent sign behind your character's skill stat to see
    		its chance of activating when you attack.
    
    
    	Resolve:
    	Tauroneo
    
    		Resolve activates when the character with it has half health
    		or less. It will double the character's strength, speed, and
    		skill. So this skill can make just about any character really
    		powerful when they have low health. Hopefully this skill won't
    		be needed often but give it to someone who has a decent chance
    		of losing half of their health. 
    
    
    	Savior:
    	Tibarn
    
    		Savior cancels out skill and speed reductions that would
    		arise from rescuing a unit. If you find yourself rescuing 
    		units often then this skill can be great otherwise this skill
    		has little use. If you need it then give it to a flier or 
    		someone else who can rescue a lot of units.	
    
    
    	Smite:
    	Mordecai
    
    		Smite doubles the effect of shove and will be an option below
    		shove for a character with this skill. If you think shove is
    		useless then you'll definitely find this even less useful.
    		Seriously, it'll be rarely used but if you want then give it
    		to someone with high weight who doesn't already have other
    		good skills.
    
    
    	Vantage:
    	Mia
    		
    		Vantage will allow the character with it to always attack
    		first in fights. In my opinion this is one of the most
    		useful skills in the game especially when combined with either
    		Wrath, Adept, or Guard. This also works great on Swordmasters
    		since they have a good chance of landing a critical and 
    		killing the enemy with one hit. If you're using Zihark then 
    		he would work very well with this skill. Otherwise give this
    		to someone who either has one of the aforementioned skills or
    		is strong enough to kill most enemies in a hit.
    
    
    	Wrath:
    	Nephenee
    
    		Wrath activates when the character with it is at half health
    		or less. When it's activated it will greatly increase the
    		character's critical %. Hopefully this skill won't get used
    		too much as your character has to have low health for it to
    		be active. However, if your character does go below half 
    		health then this skill might just save them from death, while
    		killing an enemy or two in the process. I'd give this to
    		someone who has a good chance of going below half health from
    		just a couple hits.  
    	
    
    3. 15 Capacity Skills [FE15C]:
    
    
    	Blossom:
    	Sothe
    
    		Blossom halves the exp gained by a unit but gives them better
    		stat growth. You can't get this skill anywhere and only Sothe,
    		who can't promote, comes with it. Sure his stats will be great
    		for a thief, but they won't be able to go higher than 20 while
    		his health won't be able to go higher than 40. Overall, since
    		Sothe is pretty useless, this skill is also quite useless.
    
    
    	Celerity:
    	Tormod
    
    		Celerity adds 2 to a unit's movement. However, you can't get
    		this skill anywhere and only Tormod comes with it. If you
    		decide to use Tormod then this skill can help him a bit. 
    		However, with its capacity being 15, Tormod won't be able to
    		have many other skills unless you remove Celerity.
    
    
    	Nihil:
    	Calill
    
    		Nihil will negate an enemy's combat related skills when they
    		fight with a character who has the Nihil skill. Nihil's effect
    		is nice since it won't affect your character's other skills.
    		However, its capacity is 15 which is pretty high. Therefore
    		it can be useful but be careful of who you give it to because
    		they won't have much room for any other skills.
    
    
    	Paragon:
    	Astrid, Geoffrey
    
    		Paragon doubles the amount of experience the unit gets and 
    		also halves the amount of bonus experience needed to level up
    		a character. Too bad you can't get this skill anywhere and 
    		only Astrid and Geoffrey come with it. The skill helps make
    		both Astrid and Geoffrey good characters and if you are using
    		them remove the skill once they get to level 20 Paladin so
    		that they can get some other skill.
    
    
    	Reinforce:
    	Tanith	
    
    		Use this to bring in 2 Pegasus Knights and 1 Falcon Knight as
    		Partner units during a turn. Ike can then direct them. 
    		Reinforce can only be used by Tanith and you can't get the
    		skill anywhere. This skill can really come in handy, though,
    		and makes Tanith worth using. Just use this when you need
    		some decoys to distract the enemies. Be aware, however, that
    		it can only be used twice per map.
    
    
    	Renewal:
    	Elincia, Ena		
    	
    		Renewal restores a little bit of health at the beginning of
    		each turn to the character with this skill. Elincia and Ena
    		will probably not be doing much fighting, though, so this 
    		skill will have minimal use. You could get the scroll for this
    		by rejecting Reyson's help but then you wouldn't get him, 
    		Janaff, or Ulki. So I don't think this scroll is even worth
    		getting.
    
    
    4. 20 Capacity Skills (Also known as Mastery Skills and Class Skills) [FE20C]:
    
    
    	Note: Any of these skills can be learned by using an Occult scroll on
    	      a character. However, you only get 4 Occult scrolls in the game
    	      so you can only get 4 of these skills. Also note that instead
    	      of putting what character comes with the skill, I will put what
    	      class can learn the skill as each skill can only be learned by
    	      a certain class.
    
    	
    	Aether:
    	Lord
    	
    		Aether is a combination of two other skills and when activated
    		performs them in two consecutive attacks. The first attack
    		will be the Sol skill which will do normal damage and heal for
    		the amount of damage done. The second attack will be the Luna
    		skill which will do twice the normal damage since Luna 
    		reduces an enemy's defense by half for the attack. So when
    		this skill activates you'll end up doing 3 times normal damage
    		and heal for the first third. This skill is probably the best
    		skill in the game so I would definitely have Ike learn it.
    		Note that one or both of the attacks from Aether could miss 
    		but Ike rarely misses with any attack so you probably won't
    		ever see him miss with Aether. Also note that just as they can
    		miss they can also critical. Activation chance equals skill as
    		a percent.
    
    
    	Astra:
    	Swordmaster
    
    		Astra does five consecutive attacks each at half damage when
    		it activates. What is great about it is that each attack has
    		the same chance as a normal attack does to critical. Stefan 
    		comes with this skill making him a better character than he 
    		already is. Mia and Zihark, however, both already have other 
    		good skills on them that would have to be taken away for them 
    		to learn this. Because of that, I can't recommend using an 
    		Occult to learn this skill. Its activation chance equals 
    		(skill/2) as a percent.
    
    
    	Blessing:
    	Heron
    	
    		Blessing restores some health to any unit next to the one with
    		Blessing at the beginning of every turn. The only character
    		in the game that can learn Blessing is Reyson and he already
    		comes with it so obviously you can't use an Occult to learn 
    		it. However, this can be a valuable skill and helps make
    		Reyson worth using.
    
    
    	Boon:
    	Dragon
    	
    		Boon will restore the status of any unit next to the one with
    		Boon at the beginning of every turn. Only Ena and Nasir can
    		learn Boon and both of them already start with it. It's only
    		usable on the last two chapters and, due to that fact, isn't
    		very helpful.
    
    
    	Cancel:
    	Hawk
    
    		When Cancel activates it will negate an enemy attack. Unlike
    		Guard, however, you don't have to attack for it to have a
    		chance of activating. Tibarn comes with this skill (as if he
    		needs it :D ) so the only two characters you could use an
    		Occult on for this are Ulki and Janaff. In my opinion most of 
    		the other mastery skills are more useful than this one so I
    		wouldn't waste an Occult on this. Its activation chance equals
    		skill as a percent.
    
    	Colossus:
    	Warrior, Beserker
    
    		Colossus will sometimes activate when the unit who has the 
    		skill has a higher weight than the enemy. When it activates it
    		will make the character do a little more damage to the enemy.
    		Only Boyd and Largo can learn this skill and both of them are
    		strong enough as is. They really shouldn't need the extra 
    		damage to kill enemies that are lighter than them so I would 
    		not use an Occult to learn this skill. Its activation chance
    		equals skill as a percent.
    
    
    	Deadeye:
    	Sniper
    
    		Deadeye increases the unit's hit % and also gives them a 
    		chance to put the enemy to sleep when it activates. Snipers
    		already have good accuracy so the extra hit % really isn't 
    		needed. Also the skill doesn't put enemies to sleep very often
    		and you really shouldn't need enemies to be asleep anyways.
    		Overall, I don't think this skill is worth having. Its 
    		activation chance equals skill as a percent and the chance to
    		put an enemy to sleep is skill/2 as a percent.
    
    	
    	Flare:
    	Bishop, Sage
    
    		Flare will reduce the enemy's resistance in half for one
    		attack when it activates. It is a decent skill but most 
    		enemies already have low resistance. Therefore, it won't
    		really add much damage to attacks except when you're facing
    		other magic users. If you happen to have an Occult that you
    		don't really know who to give to then this might be a suitable
    		option. Its activation chance equals skill as a percent.
    
    
    	Lethality:
    	Assasin
    
    		Lethality will instantly kill an enemy when it activates
    		regardless of how much damage you would normally do. Only
    		Volke can learn this skill so if you are using him then give
    		him this skill. If you are not using Volke much then don't 
    		give him the skill. The skill won't activate too often but
    		when it does the effect is well.... awesome. The chance of it
    		activating is skill as a percent.
    
    
    	Luna:
    	General, Halberdier
    
    		Luna will cut the enemy's defense in half for one attack when
    		it activates. A lot of enemies have decent defense so this can
    		really help out. Nephenee could probably make good use of this
    		skill but she'd have to lose Wrath in order to learn it so I
    		wouldn't advise ditching Wrath. If you are using a General
    		then I would definitely consider giving them this skill. Its
    		activation chance equals skill as a percent.
    
    
    	Roar:
    	Cat, Tiger, Lion
    
    		Roar is its own separate command that you can choose when 
    		next to an enemy. If it works it will stop an enemy from 
    		moving for a turn. So why would that be useful? Well it really
    		isn't and I wouldn't advise wasting an Occult to learn it.
    		Giffca does come with this skill, though, but if you choose
    		to use Giffca I still wouldn't use this skill at all.
    
    
    	Sol:
    	Paladin, Valkyrie
    
    		Sol restores health equal to the amount of damage done if it
    		activates. Paladins tend to take a fair amount of damage if
    		you are using them a lot so this skill can help keep them
    		alive and well. Basically if you are using a Paladin a lot 
    		then I would probably give him this skill. Sol's activation
    		chance equals the character's skill as a percent.
    
    
    	Stun:
    	Falcon Knight, Wyvern Lord, Princess Crimea
    
    		Stun will sometimes activate after you attack and will prevent
    		the enemy from moving for a turn. The enemy will still be able
    		to attack anything next to it though. This skill doesn't 
    		activate too often and even if it does it's not very useful.
    		I wouldn't waste an Occult on this skill. Its activation 
    		chance equals skill/2 as a percent.
    
    
    	Vortex:
    	Crow, Raven
    
    		Vortex can be activated by choosing the command when you are
    		a space away from an enemy. It is basically the wind tome so
    		it won't do too much damage. Only Naesala has this skill and
    		no one else can learn it. Therefore it'll only come in handy
    		if you choose to use Naesala on the final chapter.

    Frequently Asked Questions [FEFAQ]:
    	
      1.	Are Roy and Marth in this game?
    	NO.
    
      2.	Is <insert name here> good?
    	Possibly, just look at what I say about the character and decide for
    	yourself. Stat increases are random, however, so it is hard to say
    	that a particular character will always be good or bad.
    	
      3.	Are arenas in this game?
    	No, there is now bonus experience instead.
    
      4.	Is there dark magic in this game?
    	Nope :\ .
    	
      5.	Where are the armories/shops located?
    	They are no longer in the maps. They are now in your base. Just go to
    	outfit then select a character and choose "Shop".
    
      6.	When can I use bonus exp/buy items/forge items?
    	At the beginning of each chapter starting with chapter 8.
    
      7.	What is <insert skill name here>?
    	It is an item that will give your character that particular skill.
    	For more info on skills check out the skills section of this faq.
    	
      8.	What does Occult do?
    	It can be used on any promoted unit. It will give them their class's
    	special skill. In example Ike will learn Aether, while Volke will 
    	learn Lethality from it.
    
      9.	Why can't I find my Occult scroll when I try to assign it to a 
    	character?
    	The skill will not be listed as "Occult" but will instead be listed
    	as whatever skill the character can learn from the Occult scroll.
    	
      10.	Where are all the class changing items?
    	Characters no longer need items to class change but will instead 
    	automatically class change when they reach level 21. However, if you
    	want to class change someone earlier, there are 3 Master Seals that 
    	could be used.
    
      11.	Why can't my Ike promote?
    	Ike promotes automatically as a story event at the end of chapter 17.
    
      12.	Why can't my Volke promote?
    	Volke automatically promotes if you rehire him at the end of Chapter
    	19.
    
      13.	Why can't my Sothe promote?
    	Sothe cannot promote..... ever.
    
      14.	Can I kill the Black Knight?
    	Unless you are on chapter 27, no.
    	
      15.	What does the Knight Ring do?
    	It is an item that can be equipped to a character. It will allow a
    	non-mounted unit to be able to use any of their remaining movement 
    	after attacking an enemy, just like the mounted units can move after 
    	attacking.
    
      16.	Why can't I remove a character from my party?
    	Characters that are listed in green cannot be taken out of your
    	party, while characters in red cannot be put into your party. Ike
    	remains in green for the whole game while a few other characters get
    	listed in green for a couple chapters. For the first few chapters the
    	game will not even let you alter your party at all.
    
      17.	What is this "Triangle attack"?
    	It is an attack that can be performed by Boyd, Rolf, and Oscar if they
    	are all promoted and can use bows. You also need to have read the 2
    	conversations between them at your base in chapters 13 and 19. 
    	Position these three characters around an enemy and have one attack to
    	perform the move. Here are drawings to help illustrate where everyone 
    	needs to be (any 1 of these will work):

    	|____________|  |____________|  |_____O______|  |____________|	
    
    	Note that it does not matter which brother is where or who attacks but
    	each brother must be one space away from the enemy and position the 
    	first two having them wait and attack with the third. (Makes sense 
    	since they attack with bows.)
    
      18.	Wait isn't there a Falcon Knight triangle attack?
    	I have heard now that if you made Marcia into a falcon knight and have
    	Tanith and Elincia they will have a "Holy Knight" conversation in base
    	at the beginning of chapter 28. Then they will be able to do their
    	own triangle attack with swords. Hero of Nobody has now confirmed this
    	to work. You just have to read the conversation between them and then
    	perform the attack like the brothers' triangle attack except using 
    	swords this time and without spaces between your units and the enemy.
    
      19.	Is this game different depending on which level of difficulty you 
    	pick?
    	As far as I know, the story is the same for each difficulty. Easy and
    	Normal modes are basically the same but you get a little less 
    	experience in normal mode. Hard mode has more enemies on some of the
    	maps and there are a couple fog of war maps. You also get a lot less
    	experience in hard mode.
    
      20.	Didn't your name used to be...?
    	Yeah, I changed my name from skb007 to Ask_B_007 because the letters
    	skb are for a completely different game that has no relevance to my
    	FAQ work. So I changed skb to Ask_B since my friends have told me it
    	sounds better and my real name does start with a B.

    Some interesting/cool things  [FEINT]:
    
      1.	If you want a normal weapon but with a different name and/or color
    	just forge the weapon you want. Don't change it's stats but instead
    	just change the name and/or color because changing these do not add
    	to the price. In this way you can have different colored weapons for
    	the same price as the normal ones in the armory.
    	Also, if the armory doesn't have a basic weapon that you want you 
    	could get it at the forgery instead. So say you need an iron sword but
    	the armory currently doesn't have it, just go to the forgery and get
    	the sword there.
    	Be aware, however, that you can only visit the forgery once per stay
    	at your base.
    
      2.   Tanith's level 10 stats:
    	hp 32		sp 24
    	str 16		lck 18
    	mag 10		def 15       
    	skill 18	res 13
    	
    	A level 1 Falcon knight's stats brought in by reinforce:
    	hp 31		sp 25
    	str 17		lck 15
    	mag 6		def 15
    	skill 23 	res 17
    
    	Tanith can bring in a better unit than herself. Too bad you can't 
    	switch them and keep the reinforcement throughout the game :D .
    
      3.	So Greil is called Sir Gawain and he fights the Black Knight. Hmmm
    	kinda reminds me of something.....     Oh yeah, the story of Sir
    	Gawain and the Green Knight.
    	
      4.	Skills can end up activating against doors if you try to break them.
    	Yes, that's right Aether could actually activate against a door :D .
    
      5.	David Chang has pointed out to me in an email that "the spell 
    	Nosferatu is also the name of a vampire. This explains why when you 
    	damage an opponent, you heal yourself."
    
      6.	Anthony has reminded me in an email that this is not the first Fire
    	Emblem game to have a sword with the word "Katti" in its name. The 
    	first two swords were Lyn's "Mani Katti" and "Sol Katti" in Fire
    	Emblem 7. The series did not add in a "Katti" sword in Fire Emblem 8
    	but brought the sword back with the "Vague Katti" in this Fire Emblem
    	game.

    Radiant Dawn Notes [FERDN]:
    
    	Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn is the sequel to Path of Radiance, and as 
    	such, it allows you to transfer data to it. However, as of now, only 
    	normal and hard mode epilogue save files can be used. Also, you must not 
    	even have any form of an easy mode save on your Path of Radiance file
    	or the game will freeze up.
    
    	Now onto what actually transfers:
    
    	First, you can get stat bonuses for your characters. If a character
    	reached level 20 of their final class and capped a stat (or more) then
    	they will receive a fixed bonus to that stat (or stats) in Radiant
    	Dawn.
    	
    	The Health stat bonus is +5 while strength, magic, skill, speed,
    	defense, resistance, and luck get +2.
    	
    	Some special cases, however, are Danved, Calill, and Sothe.
    	Danved will get all of the bonuses from Devdan since they are actually
    	the same person.
    	Calill will receive her own bonuses and any bonuses that Largo would
    	have received since he is not playable in Radiant Dawn.
    	Sothe will receive his exact stats from this game if he reached level
    	20 even if the Path of Radiance stat is lower than the base stat in
    	Radiant Dawn. Also, since his resistance cap is lower in Radiant Dawn,
    	if his resistance in Path of Radiance is 15-20, it will be 15 in 
    	Radiant Dawn.
    
    	Since you can get stat bonuses from transfering, some characters become
    	more important to level up in Path of Radiance. Sothe, for example, is
    	one of the main characters in Radiant Dawn so this may actually
    	give you a reason to level him up in Path of Radiance.
    
    	Next are the weapon rank bonuses. If a character's weapon type reached
    	C to S rank then there will be a weapon experience bonus given in 
    	Radiant Dawn. The bonuses are 40 for C rank, 80 for B, 120 for A, and
    	160 for S.
    
    	Now onto Supports. Support conversations on a Path of Radiance epilogue
    	file can be viewed in the support library once you create a new
    	Radiant Dawn file using the Path of Radiance data. Also, 'A' level
    	supports in Path of Radiance will become bond supports between the
    	characters giving a +5 to critical and dodge. 
    
    	Last, we have Coins which were previously thought to be useless. Now
    	any coins from the Path of Radiance epilogue file will transfer to
    	Ike's convoy at the beginning of Part 3. They now can give bonuses
    	to forged weapons.
