1. INTRODUCTION

=============================================================================

Hi! This is a guide to Fire Emblem: Fuuin no Tsurugi for the Game Boy Advance, 
also known as The Sword of Seals or The Sealed Sword. It's the sixth in the 
series and a direct sequel of the first Fire Emblem released outside Japan, 
even though it was released before it. It stars Roy, of Super Smash Bros. 
Melee fame, as the main character. The story is set twenty years after the 
end of Fire Emblem (referred to as FE7 from now on) at the Dragon Gate.

For a quick review, this game easily belongs in my list of top 20 favorite 
video games of all time. And I've played a lot of video games. The amount of 
depth and challenge is shocking for a handheld SRPG. Although it belongs in 
the SRPG genre, it's quite different from the typical SPRGs like Final 
Fantasy Tactics or Tactics Orgre. The gameplay mechanics are simple and there 
isn't much to customize, but it certainly lives up to the genre by being 
actually strategic. I must warn you, this isn't a walk in the park. 
Frustration is inevitable. But if you like challenge, then this will quenche 
your thirst. One of the best the GBA has to offer, right behind Advance Wars.

You might be wondering why it took so long for me to write a FAQ. I mean, 
it's been out there for almost three years now. Well, I thought Apujanata's 
FAQ was a good enough guide for everyone, it was for me. But then people 
complained about it. A few people wanted to write a complete FAQ, but they 
all gave up sooner or later. That's when I finally decided to write one 
myself, different than Apujanata's FAQ. I started in February 2005 and I was 
surprised how fast I could release the first version already.

The walkthrough is primarily for people who want to finish it as fast as 
possible. I mastered Advance Wars, finished both Advanced Modes with an S 
rank. So giving strategic advice won't be a problem. The problem is though 
that Advance Wars goes from mission to mission, starting over every time. In 
Fire Emblem, the selection and stats of your characters depend on how fast 
you can finish a chapter. I expect you to have a level of knowing-what-the-
hell-you're-doing. Or even reading this walkthrough will prove fruitless.

As a last thing, I have to inform you that I play the original cartridge, so 
you'll have to excuse some inconsistencies. I've tried to cover everything 
the game has to offer, so I hope this FAQ will answer every question and 
solve any problems you have. Thank you.

2. REVISION HISTORY

=============================================================================

08/19/2005 Version 0.95
Wow, over 250 Kb, 100 pages and 10,000 hits. Glad to know that you appreciate 
my work. Added general strategies and edited out crap. Man, my English can be 
terrible at times. I've got a very busy semester coming up, so I'm afraid 
I'll have to put this on hold. Also, Twilight Princess got delayed. ;_;
On the other hand... Yay! Because it should get bigger and better.

06/02/2005 Version 0.9
OMFG, he turns into a big bad wolf! Added a couple of chapters, fixed things 
and stuff. Major thanks to Ron Liang for giving me the Ilia part. You rock. 
Or I would have nothing for this update. <_< >_> Fire Emblem: The Sacred 
Stones is already out by the way. Be sure to get it.

I've made a list of things left to be done. If you know something that might 
be of use, contact me, either by e-mail or my FAQ thread in the FE6 board.

TO-DO LIST
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
- General strategy: C6, 10B, 11B, 17B, 18B, 19B, 20B, 20xB
- Enemy reinforcements: C6, 10B, 11B, 19B
- Boss class, stats and weapons: C10B, 11B, 17B, 18B, 19B, 20B, 20xB
- Constitution of bosses: C2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10B, 11B, 12
- Boss strategy: 6, 7, 8, 10B, 11B, 17B, 18B, 19B, 20B, 20xB

That's about it. Maybe a better ASII front art, but meh.

05/05/2005 Version 0.85
Made a lot of corrections. Added character background info, general 
strategies, desert item locations and item locations. Thanks everyone. Also, 
fixed the e-mail address. I've been getting tons of spam after submitting the 
first version. Damn bots, I don't need no steenkin' male enhancements. Also, 
Fire Emblem: Souen no Kiseki just arrived today. Huzzah! No updates for at 
least two weeks I'm afraid. E3 is starting soon too. I can't wait for some 
juicy Zelda. Hope you understand this.

04/18/2005 Version 0.8
First version. Only completed half of the chapters, so it's sadly still 
unfinished. I had to release it earlier, because my internship starts this 
week and will continue for a few months. It's better than nothing I guess. 
You'll have to forgive me. I'll try to update as fast as possible, but I 
can't promise anything. Thank you.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.1 CLASS SYSTEM
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The class system of Fire Emblem works very differently from other SRPGs. For 
example, you can't switch your characters' 'job' at will. All units are bound 
to one basic class and one promoted class, with the exception of the ones 
that can't promote. To promote a class you need to use the correct promotion 
item. Also, during promotion, classes gain additional stats and gain certain 
new abilities such as wielding different weapons. It's important to know the 
pros and cons of each class to be able to take advantage of and knowing their 
weaknesses. I've divided all the classes in subcategories with the idea that 
they are more or less similar in function. So it's not that you need to have 
someone in every class. I'll show you a general pros and cons list as well. 
It's important to form an army that can deal with any given situation. I hope 
you can form an idea for yourself after reading this.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.2 WEAPON TRIANGLE
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

As most of you know, there's a rock-paper-scissor system in Fire Emblem. Like 
FE7 this gives certain advantages in a battle. However, it's a bit different 
than FE7.

We'll start with the basics:

Swords beats Axes
Axes beats Lances
Lances beats Swords

Anima beats Light
Light beats Dark
Dark beats Anima

There are weapons that negate or turn it around. These are called Reaver 
weapons. You'll still be vulnerable against a weapon type though.

Note: the triangle system in FE7 gave a damage bonus (1 or 2) and a hit bonus 
(15 or 30), depending on Reavers. In FE6, it's a damage bonus of 1 and a hit 
bonus of 10, even if it's a Reaver.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.3 COMMON ABBREVATIONS
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

To make it easier for me to write this FAQ, I use abbreviations. It's useful 
to know these beforehand.

HP   = Health Points
Lvl  = Level
Str  = Strength
Skl  = Skill
Spd  = Speed
Lck  = Luck
Def  = Defense
Res  = Resitance
Mov  = Movement
Con  = Constitution
AS   = Attack Speed
Crit = Critical
Stat = Statistic
OHKO = One-Hit Knock-Out
FOW  = Fog of War
FE   = Fire Emblem
SoS  = Sword of Seals

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.4 STAT EXPLANATIONS
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some of the stats are quite confusing of what their purposes are, so here's a 
rundown from top to bottom.

HP
Your Health Points. Self-explanatory.

STRENGTH/MAGIC
This affects how much damage you will do. Strength is tied with Defense while 
Magic is tied with Resistance. Also affects healing power.

SKILL
This affects your hit rate and critical rate.

SPEED
This affects your attack speed and evade rate. If your attack speed is four 
points higher than your opponent, you'll double attack.

LUCK
This affects your hit rate, evade rate and critical evade.

DEFENSE
This affects how much physical damage you receive.

RESISTANCE
This affects how much magical damage you receive. Also affects staff evade.

MOVEMENT
How many squares you can move. Terrain or climate can lower this depending on 
class.

CONSTITUTION
This affects your attack speed. If the weight of the weapon you're equipping 
exceeds your constitution, then your attack speed will get lowered by that 
amount. You will not gain more attack speed if the weight is lower than your 
constitution.

AID
If your Aid is higher than target's constitution, you may rescue him/her. If 
it's even or lower, you cannot rescue that particular unit.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.5 BATTLE CALCULATIONS
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's important to have a basic idea how battles are calculated. You can then 
try to use it as your advantage.

ATTACK SPEED = Speed + Con - Weapon Weight (is never higher than Speed)
(note: If Attack Speed is at least four points higher, the unit with the 
higher Attack Speed will double attack.)

HIT RATE = 2*Skill + 0.5*Luck + Weapon Hit Rate + Bonuses - Target's Evade
(note: Bonuses are Hit Rate Support and Weapon Triangle.)

EVADE = 2*Attack Speed + Luck + Bonuses
(note: Bonuses are Evade Support and Terrain. Pegasus Knights, Falcon Knights, 
Dragon Knights and Dragon Masters do not receive terrain bonuses.)

DAMAGE = Strength/Magic + Weapon Might + Bonuses - Target's Effective 
Defense/Resistance
(note: Bonuses are Damage Support. If Weapon is effective against Target, 
multiply outcome with 2.)

EFFECTIVE DEFENSE/RESISTANCE = Defense/Resistance + Bonuses.
(note: Bonuses are Defense Support. It affects both Defense and Resistance.)

CRITICAL RATE = 0.5*Skill + Weapon Critical Rate + Bonuses - Target's 
Critical Evade
{note: Bonuses are 30 if Swordmaster or Berserker and Critical Rate Support.)

CRITICAL EVADE = Luck + Bonuses
(note: Bonuses are Critical Evade Support.)

STAFF HIT RATE = 30 + Magic*5 + Skill + Bonuses - Target's Staff Evade
(note: Bonuses are Damage Support.)

STAFF EVADE = Resistance*5 + Caster's distance from Target*2 + Bonuses
(note: Bonuses are Defense Support.)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.6 MISCELLANEOUS IMPORTANT STUFF
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

TERRAIN
When you're standing on a special terrain, it will often give battle bonuses 
such as Defense and Evade or sometimes it will even heal you. But there's a 
disadvantage for playing defensive, it slows your movement down. Mounted 
units suffer the most from this, except for Nomads who apparently have 
magical horses. Remember that flying units cannot benefit from the terrain.

As for terrain bonuses:
Forest     +1 Defense, +20 Evade
Fort       +2 Defense, +20 Evade, Heals 10% of total HP 
Throne     +3 Defense, +20 Evade, Heals 10% of total HP
Building   +10 Evade
Mountain   +1 Defense, +30 Evade
Peak       +1 Defense, +40 Evade
Cave       +2 Defense, +20 Evade, Heals 10% of total HP
Pillar     +1 Defense, +20 Evade
Lake       +10 Evade
Sea        +10 Evade
Sand       +5 Evade
Ballista   +5 Evade

MANIPULATING THE A.I.
To take advantage of an opponent, one must learn how it (re)acts. Here are 
some pointers. The A.I. will always try to attack a unit if it can kill it. 
If no such target exist, then it will try to target a unit it can deal the 
most damage to, disregarding hit rate. An exception is if you can't 
counterattack. Roy and Thieves are MAGNETS, although it's more a pain in the 
butt than anything.

RANDOM NUMBER GENERATOR
This thing here decides everything in this game, from hitting an enemy to 
getting a stat up in Strength. As the name suggests, it generates random 
numbers. For example, if your hit rate is 80% and the number it generates is 
1-80, it'll hit. Likewise if it's 81-100, the attack will miss. This is a 
simplified explanation, it's way too complicated to tell you how it precisely 
works. The numbers it generates aren't exactly 100% random. But enough of 
this or I might give you a headache.

EFFECTIVENESS
Weapons that are effective against classes (for example Bows vs. Flyers, 
Armorslayer vs. Armor Knights) have their weapon's might multiplied by 3.

STAT GROWTHS
Stat Growths are fixed percentages that give you a chance of getting +1 in a 
stat when you level up. These growths are different from each character. The 
rule is mostly that characters with a lower starting level have greater stat 
growths. Browse the F.A.Q. section for a chart.

MAXED STATS
Each class is bound to certain maximum stats. The stat bar in the stats 
screen shows this. The max stats of males and females differ with guys having 
more power and/or defense while the ladies are more resistant to magic. 
Browse the F.A.Q. section for a chart.

SUPPORTS
When two related characters are next to each other, they gain support points. 
If the amount of support points is reached, you get a support option that 
lets you support each other. Supports give battle bonuses depending on both 
of their affinity and support level. There are three support levels: C, B, A 
from lowest to highest. The higher the level, the better the support bonuses.
Read 8.1 for more information.

WEAPON LEVELS
Weapon levels are gained by using a weapon of the same category frequently. 
An unpromoted character cannot obtain an S Rank. You can gain as many S Ranks 
as you like, provided you can wield that weapon.

STATUSES
All statuses last five turns and a unit can only get one status at a time.
The statuses are Poison, Sleep, Silence and Berserk.
- Poison gives you 1, 2 or 3 damage at random at the start of your turn.
- Sleep disables you to move and attack. Evading is still possible.
- Silence only applies to Magic users. Afflicted unit cannot use Magic.
- Berserk makes the unit attack friend or foe at the end of the turn. The 
selection depends on the amount of damage. The attack can't be countered.

STEALING
You cannot steal weapons or staves, but you can steal items. Your Speed must 
be equal or greater than the target's Speed to be able to steal.

BALLISTA
There are sometimes ballistas scattered around a map that are used by the 
enemy. They're pretty annoying, especially against your flyers. However, you 
can use the ballista against them with your own Archers and Snipers. Just 
move an Archer or Sniper to the ballista and select the new option. You can 
then target enemies across the map that are within range. Ballistas have 
limited uses though, so make them count.

TRIANGLE ATTACK
You must have Thany, Thite and Yuuno or Bors, Barth and Wendy in your party 
for it to work. Position two of them next to the target. Now position the 
third one so the three of them will form a triangle, he/she will get the 
triangle attack option. The first triangle attack cannot miss and will always 
critical. You can only initiate it in your turn, but you can initiate it 
multiple times as long as you're in a triangle with a target in the centre. 

HARD MODE BONUSES
Enemies in Hard Mode have improved stats. As are enemy characters who are 
recruitable. Not all of them get bonuses though and the bonuses vary from 
character. The bonuses are random, but some stats get preferred depending on 
the character. The characters who get Hard Mode bonuses are: Rutger, Fir, 
Shin, Gonzales, Klein, Thite, Cath, Miredy, Percival (Chapter 15 only), 
Garret and Zeis.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.7 TIPS
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Have a balanced team of maximum 16 characters.
- Do not hog experience with Marcus in Normal Mode. Ever.
- Do not excessively use a superior weapon when an Iron weapon can suffice.
- Supports are your friend.
- The Triangle is your friend.
- Use terrain to your advantage whenever you can.
- Use Thieves in Fog of War.
- Do not arena abuse. Not for a long time at least.
- If you have to split up a group, match units that support each other.

That's all I can think of for now.

HARD MODE
- Use Marcus to weaken enemies and let others leech (Give him Bors' Iron 
Lance if you don't plan on using him).

- Let Allen and Lance support each other. It doesn't matter if you actually 
plan on using them later or not, they're crucial at the beginning. 

- Roy's supports are a bit different since he has a very wide selection. 
Unfortunately, most of his support options aren't very effective in Hard Mode. 
If you're having trouble keeping him alive, support him sooner with either 
Lance, Allen, Wolt or even Marcus if you're desperate. Thany, Lilina, Sophia 
and Sue are all outclassed by others in HM.

- If you haven't noticed already, supports are a must to lessen your defeats, 
thus restarting. Not only do they help offensive tactics, but also defensive 
tactics. Try to plan ahead who you want to support and have room for at least 
one A or two B each character.

- Characters with hard mode bonuses are a big help. These will instantly help 
you erase the stat advantages the enemies have. Rutger, Fir, Shin, Gonzalez, 
Klein, Thito, Cath, Miredy, Percival, Garret and Zeis all receive HM bonuses, 
some bigger than others.

- If you plan on buying and using lots of expensive weapons, training your 
Thieves are a must, unless you want to arena abuse, but they're quite vicious 
in HM. You should spare one of your Angelic Robes for them, since their HP is 
often too pitiful to survive an attack from Bolting.

- Healers are a bit of a problem. Saul is weak, Ellen and Clarine are even 
weaker. At least the two ladies can dodge so maybe you want to try your luck 
with them. Saul cannot dodge at all, his Luck is way too crappy for that. It 
depends on who you plan to use, but you should support healers as much as 
possible. Lance, Rutger and Dieck are great supports for Clarine and Lugh, 
Miredy and Zeis are equally great supports for Ellen. Use a lot of non-
healing staves such as Unlock, Restore and Torch just because it gives better 
experience. You do not want them to fall behind.

- Vulneraries and Elixirs weren't very necessary in Normal Mode, but they're 
absolutely invaluable in Hard Mode. Your units will get damaged so often that 
your healers can't keep up the healing. So give units that will get into 
combat a lot at least a Vulnerary. Case in point: In Chapter 1, give Allen 
Wolt's Vulnerary.

- And, of course, good level-ups are always a positive thing. Try to control 
that, ending the chapter with 90 or so EXP so that you'll be able to 
influence the level up in the next chapter. Not everyone can gain good level 
ups all the time, you're in the mercy of the RNG gods, but try to keep them 
in mind. If Rutger didn't get one Strength point in his third level up (30%), 
then try to fix that with the method above.

5. CHARACTER GUIDE                                                     [CHRG]

=============================================================================

Here's a guide for people who are unsure who to use and who not to use. I 
will give them three ratings from one to five stars in three categories: 
Potential, Usefulness and Supports. I hope they're self-explanatory. 

Supports are judged by the supporting roster, their usefulness and your 
affinity. Potential is derived from the stat growths of each individual. 
Usefulness is the most vague category. It certainly depends on your playing 
style, like if you play offensively or defensively. I have one important rule 
when it comes to usefulness and that's how they play on the actual 
battlefield. Supporting units generally get five stars automatically. But it 
also depends on which chapter you get them and what their starting stats are. 
Some characters are great when you first get them and generally get weaker 
the further you get, these characters still deserve a good rating because 
they can prove quite useful even if it's only a handful of chapters. 

Movement is another factor in usefulness. Low movement can affect the chapter 
significantly, like when one of your units just missed an attack and you need 
another unit to finish it off. Some things cannot be predicted and so being 
versatile is the key to success. Therefore airborne units, the Pegasus Knight 
and the Dragon Knight, automatically get a good rating.

I hope I've explained it in a way you understand. If you feel that I've done 
injustice to the world, feel free to contact me.

Note: Some of these names are not official and should not be treated as 
official. I'm going to use these names in the entire FAQ, so get used to it.

Comments: Roy is your basic average Lord, who starts weak but ends terrific. 
He may be able to KO fellow Nintendo characters with one move, but he's a 
pansy here without the Sword of Seals. He must be present in every chapter, 
as he's the only one that can end a chapter by conquering the throne. It's 
Game Over if he dies. His growths are all above average, and that's a good 
and a bad thing. The good thing is that no stat will get truly bad, the bad 
thing is that his level-ups can fluctuate. I've seen pimpin' Roys, but also 
wimpy Roys. He'll truly shine however when he gets the Sword of Seals. I 
advise you to use him moderately and watch his level-ups. You could level him 
up like crazy from the start, but then you never know what will become of him. 
Roy's support options are nothing more than pimpin'.

Comments: He has come back to haunt House Pherae and he's gotten quite a bit 
older. It shows in his stats, my God, what a regression. DO NOT EVER USE HIM. 
That means don't attack with him. Just use him at the beginning to loot 
villages, transport units and buy equipment. Hard Mode is a different story 
however, but let's not praise him too much. He might be listening. <_< >_>

5.3 ========== Allen ==========

Class: Cavalier -> Paladin
Stat Growth: HP 85% Str 45% Skl 40% Spd 45% Lck 40% Def 25% Res 10%

Comments: Say hello to the red powerful Cavalier, Allen. You'll use him a lot 
in the early game and he's one hell of a powerhouse. His growths are all 
solid, only his Skill can abandon him sometimes. That's his only weakness, 
and his inability to withstand Magic. But he's more of a bulldozer anyway. 
Use him a lot, because he's going to be a valuable asset to your team.

5.4 ========== Lance ==========

Class: Cavalier -> Paladin
Stat Growth: HP 80% Str 40% Skl 45% Spd 50% Lck 35% Def 20% Res 15%
Starting: Lvl.1 HP 20 Str 5 Skl 6 Spd 8 Lck 2 Def 6 Res 0 Mov 7 Con 9

Comments: Say hello to the other Cavalier, green, nimble Lance. He's pretty 
evenly matched against Allen, only he has the upper hand in Skill, Speed and 
Resistance. You'll use them both equally much in the early game, but later on, 
the thought that you want to ditch one of the two might pop up. It's a toss 
up between the two. I say train them both equally and when the time comes, 
choose the one with the more favorable stats.

5.5 ========== Wolt ==========

Class: Archer -> Sniper
Stat Growth: HP 80% Str 40% Skl 50% Spd 40% Lck 60% Def 25% Res 30%
Starting: Lvl.1 HP 18 Str 4 Skl 4 Spd 5 Lck 2 Def 4 Res 0 Mov 5 Con 7

Comments: Archers are a dilemma. On the one hand, they can support you 
indirectly and pick enemy units on the other side of the wall. On the other 
hand, they can't survive on their own and will get beaten up badly without 
support. Wolt's starting stats aren't spectacular either. In the early game 
he'll mostly tickle the foe instead of driving an arrow through their chests. 
Give him a chance though and he'll become a nimble archer who can snipe 
Dragon Knights without trouble. He'll still need backup though.

5.6 ========== Bors ==========

Class: Armor Knight -> General
Stat Growth: HP 90% Str 30% Skl 30% Spd 40% Lck 50% Def 35% Res 10%
Starting: Lvl.1 HP 20 Str 7 Skl 4 Spd 3 Lck 4 Def 11 Res 0 Mov 4 Con 14

Comments: Aye, I don't know what to do with you. In the early game, the maps 
are filled with axe-wielding enemies. And on top of that you're slow. Gee... 
For the people who want to take on chapters a bit more slowly and relaxed, 
he's great. His high defense will surely save your skin a couple of times. 
And his Speed and Luck aren't shabby at all. His low Strength growth is 
somewhat compensated with his already high starting Strength. However, for 
the hasty ones who laugh at danger, he'll slow you down often. 

5.7 ========== Merlinus ==========

Class: Caravan
Stat Growth: HP 100% Str 0% Skl 50% Spd 50% Lck 100 Def 20 Res 5

Comments: Uh, yay, he has his own horse now instead of a tent. Other than 
that, he's your main storage facility, able to store 100 items for you. Not 
much to be said, he doesn't gain any levels anymore if you bring him to a 
chapter. The only way to gain experience is to dodge attacks for a measly 
point of experience. Just don't bring him to the battlefield. Let the bald 
man do what he wants in his caravan helping out our young allies. o_O

5.8 ========== Ellen ==========

Class: Priest -> Bishop
Stat Growth: HP 45% Mag 50% Skl 30% Spd 20% Lck 70% Def 5% Res 60%

Comments: Your first female ally and not bad either, if you know what I mean. 
She's a healer and does a pretty good job at that. She can't heal a lot of HP 
in the early game due to her low Magic, but she'll catch on fast with her 
level ups. The problem is that healers are dependant on healing for 
experience. So it takes a while to get level ups. What you have to do to 
speed the process is you let your units take damage often and let her heal 
every turn if possible. Even if it's 1 HP, heal, heal, heal. Using different 
staves speeds up the process. Now Ellen's weakness is obviously her 
fragileness, you'll have to keep her from all danger. If you're lucky with 
her Speed, she'll dodge quite well coupled with her exceptionally high Luck. 
You still don't want her to get involved in battles though before she 
promotes. If she doesn't gain any Speed, well, there are two more healers 
that can easily replace her. Though she is the best magical tank.

5.9 ========== Thany ==========

Class: Pegasus Knight -> Falcon Knight
Stat Growth: HP 45% Str 30% Skl 55% Spd 60% Lck 60% Def 10% Res 25
Starting: Lvl.1 HP 17 Str 4 Skl 6 Spd 12 Lck 5 Def 6 Res 5 Mov 7 Con 4

Supports   : * * * * *

Comments: Ah, thy fair maiden. Cute, but also weak. If you'd like to train 
her, she'll become one heck of a Mage killer, flying over areas no other unit 
can reach. It'll be a dangerous training, but it pays off at the end. The 
only thing you'd have to worry about is her rather low Strength. Just keep an 
eye out for that. And keep an eye out for archers, the bane of Pegasus 
Knights. If you're far enough, she can manage herself by dodging quite a lot.

5.10 ========== Dieck ==========

Class: Mercenary -> Hero
Stat Growth: HP 90% Str 40% Skl 40% Spd 30% Lck 35% Def 20% Res 15%

Comments: Here comes tha man! And wow, look at those starting stats. He'll 
slaughter all that stands in his way at the beginning, he's just that 
powerful. Later on though, your other characters will likely catch up to him. 
He'll still be formidable and after promotion, he's a tank. Very solid 
character, you won't regret using him. Use Axes after promotion, seeing the 
game is filled with enemy Dragon Knights. Plus, he doesn't lose AS by 
equipping Almace. ^___^

5.11 ========== Wade ==========

Class: Fighter -> Warrior
Stat Growth: HP 75% Str 50% Skl 45% Spd 20% Lck 45% Def 30% Res 5%

Comments: Some lower-class lumberjacks applying here for a job. All muscles, 
no subtlety. Just find the quickest way to mash human skulls with his axe. 
And no wonder with that Strength growth. His Skill and Luck are good too. Too 
bad he lacks Speed and Resistance. I would recommend other axe users for your 
bone splitting pleasure. If you want all muscle power, then Gonzales will do 
the job better. Able to wield Bows after promotion is nice though. The bane 
of Dragon Knights.

5.12 ========== Lott ==========

Class: Fighter -> Warrior
Stat Growth: HP 80% Str 30% Skl 30% Spd 35% Lck 30% Def 40% Res 15%
Starting: Lvl.3 HP 29 Str 7 Skl 6 Spd 7 Lck 2 Def 4 Res 1 Mov 5 Con 12

Comments: This guy is solid, maybe a bit too solid. His starting stats are 
better than Wade. More importantly, he can survive attacks much easier with 
his superior HP, Defense and Resistance. His speed is at least decent. Also, 
He ties with Barth for best Defense growth. But the problem is that he 
doesn't excel at anything but Defense. Axe users are usually offensive. Geese, 
the Pirate, is better than him. If you want a Warrior, then I'm afraid 
Berserkers simply outclass them in this game. That doesn't mean you shouldn't 
use him. He's decent.

5.13 ========== Chad ==========

Class: Thief
Stat Growth: HP 85% Str 50% Skl 50% Spd 80% Lck 60% Def 25% Res 15%
Starting: Lvl.1 HP 16 Str 3 Skl 3 Spd 10 Lck 4 Def 2 Res 0 Mov 6 Con 5

Comments: Don't you wish he could promote into an Assassin? So do I. Look at 
those growths. Too bad it's a waste of potential as he'll be inferior in the 
later chapters. He's still very useful though, since Thieves are the only 
class that can pick locks. And to boot, they can steal some valuable items 
too from enemies. Chad is therefore a valuable asset to your team. Bring him 
into maps whenever there's a need to unlock and make sure he picks some 
experience with it as well. I made a terrible mistake once, I didn't train 
any of my Thieves at all. Suffice to say, the vultures were surrounding his 
dead carcass quite often. Also, Thieves are valuable in Fog of War maps with 
their increased vision. Train him and it'll save you some Bolting hell.

5.14 ========== Lugh ==========

Comments: Shorts are easy and comfy to wear! That's what Lugh must be 
thinking. I confused his gender once. >_< Your very first Magic user and he 
just kicks ass. Some of the early bosses are complete hell with their high 
Defenses, but not much anymore with this little fella by your side. Watch him 
pierce their armor with the fires of hell. His growths are nothing to sneeze 
at either. His Magic increases steadily and his Speed and Luck aren't shabby 
either which contributes to his evade. His HP is his only weakness, but do 
not worry. He can maul through Dragon Knights and Generals like they were 
paperweight. His high Speed helps him dodge quite a lot. You won't find a 
faster Sage than go-happy Lugh. Not to mention he can heal after promotion.

Comments: Such a feisty young woman. I like that. You just can't stop 
imagining what really happened in that room with Narshen. Enough about that, 
let's start explaining why she rules everything and everyone. Look at those 
Speed and Luck growths! She'll max them with no trouble. And you know what 
that means, dodge machine! If she was to compete in a dodge ball tournament, 
she would single-handedly own everyone. And that's precisely what a healer 
needs, being untouchable. Of course, she has some weaknesses. Her low HP, 
Magic and Defense are worrisome. But with her dodging capabilities, who needs 
high HP and Defense? Her Magic is her only real fault to an otherwise perfect 
healer. Seriously, she can heal, rescue and carry units. And with the ability 
to pack a punch with Anima Magic (best Magic in this game by the way), she's 
nothing short than amazing. Just don't expect her Magic to get phenomenal.

5.16 ========== Rutger ==========

Class: Myrmidon -> Swordmaster
Stat Growth: HP 80% Str 30% Skl 60% Spd 50% Lck 30% Def 20% Res 20%

Comments: What a badass, he's staring like he wants to gut you. You don't 
want to meet him in a dark alley. Luckily, he's on your side and to sum it 
up... He slices, he dices! His starting stats are high, and his Skill and 
Speed will go even higher. Effectively making him double attack, while having 
an excellent evade. His only weakness is his low Strength. But even though 
his Strength isn't his best point, after promotion, you can bet he'll turn 
battles into bloodsheds. With the Swordmaster's 30% critical bonus, there's a 
very good chance every time. Enemies have pathetic Luck. With his speed 
maxing out in the mid-levels, you can bet he'll dodge a bunch. Just badass.

5.17 ========== Saul ==========

Comments: Another healer, only he's at lvl. 5. It either comes down to Ellen 
or Saul for Light Magic (or if you really hate leveling up healers, Yodel is 
an alternative). His growths are a bit better in terms of HP and Defense. His 
Speed is more solid, but his Luck suffers a bit which makes him dodge less 
well. Though, he's more likely to double attack than Ellen. But they're both 
decent healers. Ellen for dodging and Saul, well, to chase ladies I guess.

5.18 ========== Dorothy ==========

Comments: It's either Wolt or Dorothy for your sniping kills (or the more 
RNG-proof Klein, but he loses out in the end). She's a bit stronger and 
faster than Wolt, other than that, they don't differ all that much. 
Personally I think Archers are a liability, they aren't flexible and 
effective, and they don't gain any promotion skills. That's why I prefer 
Nomads. If you love Archers though, use one of them. They're not bad at all.

5.19 ========== Sue ==========

Comments: Now here's my preferred kind of Bow user. They can move over great 
distances, walk on water, can support your other units rather swiftly and 
they can melee attack after promotion. That's the kind of flexibility I want. 
Sue has good growth to boot as well, she'll dodge with ease. She's still a 
bit vulnerable though in the early game, with low HP and Strength. If her 
Strength develops in your favor, then she'll be one heck of an ally. Nomadic 
Troopers are always useful to have in a map. Only their inability to attack 
directly before promotion affects their usefulness. It's harder to train them 
because indirect attack is the only way to gain experience. She's awesome 
after promotion however.

5.20 ========== Zealot ==========

Comments: The second batch of Cavaliers. Treck is more of a tank than the 
others. In a way he's like Lowen, maybe they're related. His low Resistance 
hurts him though. Use him if Allen or Lance bit the dust with bad level ups. 
Most of the times, I don't bother with him. He's too slow for my taste. But 
if you want a General on a horse, then he's great for what he does.

Comments: The least preferred of the four Cavaliers. I don't know why they 
gave him such mediocre growths compared to the others. His only good point is 
his good Defense growth, other than that, meh. Just use him to recruit Fir 
and let him stay in the bench forever.

Comments: Another thief with a bit more solid HP, Defense and Resistance. 
Stats that are essential to survive the later chapters. Plus he doesn't 
require much experience since he's at lvl. 10 from the start. Anyway, it's 
wise to have two decent Thieves at your disposal at all times. Some of the 
chapters require your team to split up into two groups with one Thief in each 
group. So start gaining levels or they'll become Bolting fodder.

5.24 ========== Lilina ==========

Class: Mage -> Sage
Stat Growth: HP 45% Mag 75% Skl 20% Spd 35% Lck 50% Def 10% Res 35%

Comments: Best. Magic. Growth. Period. She beats everyone with it. Her Luck 
is also amazingly high. Her HP and Defense hurts though. And her Speed can 
let you down. You'll have to protect her from impending danger such as 
incoming Dragon Knights. Even if her dodge is decent, you don't want to risk 
losing more than half your total HP. One thing she's good in though is to 
BURN stuff. She can OHKO quite well with the enemy's pathetic Resistance. Air 
Calibur simply destroys Dragon Knights. May I remind you that Sages are the 
best Magic class in this game. It's a fact. It has the best Magic, the best 
accuracy, the lightest and the cheapest.

Comments: Best Defense you can get in this game. His HP and Strength are 
excellent too. All his other stats are absolute crap though. But he does what 
he can do and that's to stop enemy assaults. So use him only if you really 
need a brick wall. He's just bad at everything else.

Comments: Say hello to the other potential Hero. His growths are, as you can 
see, plain better than Dieck. But he suffers from worse startings stats. 
Dieck will likely be ahead at the time you get him. They are different though. 
Dieck is just a tank, while Oujay has the upper hand in dodging. It really 
depends on what you seek. If Dieck turns out bad, you can use Oujay. But 
it'll take a while before he's at the same level as the others.

Comments: A pink-haired girl in tight armor? Certainly. She's at a very low 
level and her starting stats aren't good either. It takes some commitment to 
train her to epic proportions. But, oh, she will be worth it. Use Bors and 
Barth to help her initiate a triangle attack. Unlike the other two Armor 
Knights, Wendy has decent growths in just about everything. Barth may have 
better Strength and Defense, Bors may have better Luck and Defense, but she 
can deal enemies all on her own. Maybe even better. If you don't want to take 
the trouble to train her, then don't. She isn't really necessary, just a nice 
unit. it's too bad Armor Knights are so slow.

Comments: The other potential Swordmaster. Quit drooling, she's under-age. 
Anyway, Rutger should be way ahead of her by now. If not, what the hell is 
wrong with you? She does a lot better in Luck and, well, that's about it. 
Looking at the bright side, she has lots of levels to gain, so her potential 
is huge. Too bad her Strength is really a gamble. 1 Strength in 4 level-ups? 
That's not very encouraging. So I stick with Rutger most of the time. She's a 
pain to train and I never have any luck with her Strength. The RNG might 
favor you though, so give her a try sometimes.

Comments: Can you say Rath clone? Good Strength, Skill and Speed, yup. A bit 
more solid than Sue. Again, it depends on what you want. If you didn't train 
Sue, or even an Archer, then Shin is your man. At least he will deal 
respectable amounts of damage, even with Swords after promotion. His dodge 
isn't quite good, but he can take a couple of hits. Versatile character.

Comments: Those starting stats sure show some equilibrium. That's what Geese 
basically is as an Axe user. Unlike Lott, the stats that are important for an 
Axe user are actually good. His Resistance suffers, but which non-Magic user 
doesn't? Other than that, a solid character to have. His support options are 
terrible though.

Comments: Woah, that's one ugly mofo. A mofo that could totally kick your ass 
though... if he could actually hit you. Don't get me wrong, he has the 
potential to be the best Axe user in the game. Make sure you got Chapter 10A 
though, he stinks in 10B for some reason. He's like Dart, excels in HP, 
Strength and Speed. And he does a fine job at that. Problem is his Skill and 
axes aren't famous for their accuracy, they're even worse than in FE7. But he 
can still kill Lance users consistently. His Hard Mode bonuses make him godly.

useful. For one thing, she's extremely fragile. One good hit and she's dead. 
The other is that you're limited to a certain number of allies each Chapter. 
You usually want an offensive character. A Paladin can be way more useful 
than a Dancer. Use her to recruit Percival.

a decent Sniper without much training effort.

Comments: Yay, the second Pegasus Knight, and a bit stronger too. Still, 
Pegasus Knights in FE6 can't match the ones in FE7. Thite isn't too bad

Comments: Bartre makes a comeback. Not as good as Echidna, but not without 
uses entirely. He has great Strength and lousy Speed, perfect to deal near-

Otherwise, don't use the worthless man. HULK SMASH PUNY INSECTS!

Comments: Finally, a Shaman, the twin of Lugh. And what an ominous smirk, 
like a kid who want to rule the world. His growths are fairly balanced with 
good growths in Magic, Skill and Speed. Dark magic isn't exactly the most 
accurate form, so that works out. There's another Shaman later on, but 
definitely use Rei if you want a more solid, easier to train Druid.

enough for your thieving needs. They should be at a higher level by now and 
you don't want to give her precious experience even if Thieves are easy to 
train. If you haven't trained Chad at all, then replace him with her. Other 
than that, don't bother.

Comments: YES! Just what the doctor ordered, a kickass Dragon Knight. She's a 
bit slow at first and requires some time to train, but she'll whoop ass in no 
time. Her high starting Defense negates the low Defense growth. Her defense 
will reach above 20 easily, which renders her tough as rock. Not even arrows 
can flinch her (okay, Silver arrows can be pretty painful). Her only weakness 
is her low Resistance. Don't let her get caught in Magic or she'll suffer. 
Other than that, one of the most useful characters in the game. She munches 
on Pegasus Knights for lunch.

Comments: The most useful prepromo you get. His Resistance outshines your 
other physical units easily. His Speed isn't shabby either, he can double 
attack most units quite easily. The only problem is if you already have two 
excellent Paladins. Another one might be overload. Although he's quite useful 
to have in bigger chapters as a third Paladin. Chances are that you had bad 
luck with either Allen or Lance. If so, Percival is your replacement. His 
Hard Mode bonuses make him one of the most solid units as well. His gains are 
just a bit below average.

she's one deadly demon once she's trained. Problem is she's at lvl. 1 and 
fragile, the good news is that she'll gain lots of experience after killing. 
Almost a Lilina clone, only she trades a bit in Magic and Luck for Skill and 
Resistance. She has one of the highest Resistance in the game, that's a plus. 
She still needs protection, but she can destroy anything rather easily. Her 
low Speed can get you mad sometimes though. If you already trained Lilina, 
then don't bother with her since they're both more of the same unit.

Comments: FEAR FAZILLA!! Uhm, not really... not yet anyway. But as you can 
see, her growths are extraordinary. She'll get five stats in each level-up 
easily, even two in HP and Luck occasionally. Her stone gives her very neat 
bonuses and it's highly effective against Mamkutes. But it's her only form of 
attack and it's limited, so use it sparingly. Only attack when you kill a 
unit. What I do is I only kill promoted enemies, guaranteed a level-up. That 
way you'll still have about ten uses over after 19 level-ups. There's a 
glitch though that let's you steal a Dragon Stone from a Mamkute, but her 
battle animation will be all messed up. So I strongly advise you not to try 
that if you have the cartridge. Is it just me or did she look like a giant 
goose the first time I saw her transform?

Comments: Money-grubbing bastard. You'll have to pay him the full amount, 
10,000, if you want his potential to not suck. If you don't want to pay, 
choose the other option until you're satisfied with the amount. You can only 
do this three times, he'll decline the offer to join you after that. Bastard. 
Now on to his stats, meh, it's not something to drool over. His starting HP 
and Defense are above average for a Mage, the rest is decent. If you want a 
Mage that isn't vulnerable at all times, then he's your choice. Frankly, I'll 
already have either Lugh, Lilina or Rei for the job, so I bench him. I prefer 
evade over Defense for magic users. That doesn't mean he's bad though.

Comments: Wow, what a handsome young man with sinister eyes. So dreamy... 
Err, forget what I said. HE PWNS. That's all you need to know. He's a bit 
tough to train at that stage and you'll need to give him all the experience 
when you have the chance, but he's oh so worth it. You have, like, a handful 
of chapters to get him up to shape so, chip chop, get right on it. If you 
already have a bunch of fliers though, then it's kind of unnecessary to train 
him. In Hard Mode though, you simply must use him, since he's even more 
badass there. Dragon Knights rule all! Too bad the punk ass Heath sucks. :P

close behind. His only redeeming quality is his high Defense. Great to

6. WALKTHROUGH                                                         [WLKT]

=============================================================================

Before we start, please carefully read the General Knowledge section first to 
understand the basics of the game. Once you know how the game works, then 
read on.

First, it is very difficult to write a walkthrough for a game such as Fire 
Emblem, even moreso than Advance Wars. The RNG, AI and status of allies and 
enemies affect your actions considerably. I would say it is impossible to 
write an in-depth walkthrough and expect the outcome to be precisely the same 
as yours. So I expect the readers to show some improvisations themselves. I 
am merely guiding you to the right path. Situations will differ from what 
I've described, and you will have to use your brain to solve the problem, 
unless I advise you to restart. This will happen if the problem jeopardizes 
the mission. I have done my best to write as detailed as possible. For a 
quick explanation of how I've done things:

1. The difficulty of said chapter. I use stars as a measure to describe it, 
with one star being the lowest and five stars being the highest. Of course, 
the difficulty depends on how your characters have developed, so it's just a 
general mark and nothing more.

2. The number of participants. How many characters you can select for battle.

3. The minimum amount of turns needed to finish the chapter. This is just a 
rough estimate, since it can vary depending on your units and the difficulty 
of the boss. Don't worry much about it, just play at your own pace.

4. Objectives and Events. Things that happen in the chapter and the 
objectives that can be done. Consider it a things-to-do-list. You don't have 
to do everything of course, it's completely your decision.

5. Enemy reinforcements. When they pop up, in which part of the map they pop 
up and what classes they bring.

6. General strategy. This is a basic description of what you have to do with 
as little guidance as possible. I'll try to write it in general, since your 
playing style is likely different than mine. I will however advise you to do 
a certain action if it's the best solution.

7. The boss strategy. At the start, hitting a boss requires some luck. The 
throne they occupy add a whopping 3 Defense, 20 Evade and healing properties. 
And I'm here to help you to kill it as efficiently as possible.

Onward to the walkthrough!

What you basically need to do here is to advance to the throne as quickly and 
painless as possible, preferably without the use of Marcus. Use Allen and 
Lance, the two Cavaliers to the fullest, as they're a valuable asset to your 
team later on. Don't be afraid to use Vulneraries, but it will slow you down. 
I prefer to not use Vulneraries, since it only heals a meager 10 HP. It is 
entirely possible to finish this chapter without using one, you just need 
some luck. Watch out though, even though the enemies have low accuracy, they 
still have above 40% chance of striking and they can deal plenty of damage to 
your Cavaliers if you're unlucky. You can use Roy as much as you like. Some 
prefer to level him up early while it's still easy. Others prefer to give the 
experience to the other units, since you'll have plenty of opportunities to 
train Roy later. Bors and Wolt are pretty difficult to use here. Bors has to 
deal with Axe-users which aren't his specialty and Wolt can't deal any 
significant damage. Use Bors to fetch the Gold, since he's pretty much 
useless here. As for Marcus, don't attack with him, seriously. Give his Iron 
Sword to Roy and carry Roy to the throne as fast as possible. You don't need 
him to kill enemies. The only thing why this chapter is annoying is because 
those Fighters seem to hit your Cavaliers, especially Lance, pretty 
consistently sometimes. You should be able to finish this chapter without 
much trouble in 7 turns, with 2 turns finishing the boss.

This boss isn't too tough, his Accuracy is so bad he needs lots of luck if he 
wants to hit you. Weaken him with Allen and within a day he'll be almost dead. 
If you want, have another character you want to train deal the final blow. If 
you use Roy though, you'll waste a turn.

This must be one of the easiest chapters in the whole game. You just have to 
beat up some Fighters and Soldiers with Allen and Lance and let every other 
enemy in the mercy of Dieck. Place him in one of the Fort squares and watch 
him kick ass. The only thing you need to do is to transport Roy to the throne, 
since he's pretty slow. Use either Allen, Lance or Thany. And the boss? 
That's where ol' Marcus comes in. He can get the Armorslayer and bring it 
over pretty quickly. The boss will have no chance against that. And buy some 
equipment as well, especially Iron Swords and Iron Lances.

You'll make short work of this boss if you use the shiney new Armorslayer. 
Even better if Dieck wields it. If you can't bring it all the way over there, 
use Roy's Rapier. Takes a bit longer, but still easy.

It's getting a bit more challenging now, but it still isn't anything worth 
sweating over. The enemies have gotten a bit stronger now, the Cavaliers and 
Armor Knights will give you a hard time mostly. What I do is I split the 
group into three. First group goes left, defeat the enemies and get Lugh. 
This is done with characters who are mostly useless and at the same time at 
the left side of the screen, like Bors, Wade and Lott in my situation. You 
could also bring along Thany to get Lugh much faster and maybe try to 
challenge the boss. What about Marcus? I use him to transport Dieck to the 
frontlines. The second group is the main group and will try to advance to the 
throne. From there on, when you've dealt with the Cavalier reinforcements, 
use Allen to deal with the Armor Knights and snag the chests with Chad. Third 
group entirely consists of Merlinus and his job is to retrieve the Mend Staff. 
Use either Allen or Lance to clear the Soldiers near that side. The only 
danger you could get is at the start when they're targeting Chad and when the 
reinforcements arrive. Be sure to heal lots with Ellen. She will get easily 
behind though, so use Marcus to get her at the front.

Slater - Armor Knight lvl. 7

Ah, another Armor Knight. Same as the previous one, use the Armorslayer or 
Rapier. It'll die soon enough. If you want though, have Lugh get all the way 
to the throne along the north path. If the boss has 7 or less HP, Lugh can 
get an immediate level-up if he kills the boss. Why not? Makes it easier to 
train him afterwards. He has around 70% chance of hitting him though, so 
watch out.

I hear people having trouble with this chapter. It must be those tough-to-
kill Cavaliers and Rutger and co. suddenly showing up getting a critical 
every bloody time. It's certainly tougher than in FE7. 

Get Allen and Lance past the north bridge and have them deal with the 
Cavaliers there. Move Dieck close to the southwest bridge to lure a Cavalier 
and Nomad. Don't let the Nomad near Thany. Have somewhere Lugh, Wade, Lott to 
support him. Move Merlinus past the southeast bridge and into the south most 
square. I have him visit the south village and buy some equipment as well. 
The enemy Cavaliers are a tough bunch at the center of the map, but work 
together to kill a few in one turn. Roy's Rapier is critical against 
Cavaliers as well, so use it to finish them. Then come the Pirates from the 
islands. You don't have to worry about them yet, it'll take a while before 
they arrive to shore. What you need to worry though is to GET THE HELL AWAY 
FROM RUTGER'S RANGE.

To accomplish that move all your units to the same line as the Forest square 
right below the village. Rutger can't get past that line. Have Clarine ready 
too. Do this in turn 7 or there's a possibility you'll get screwed. After you 
succeed in recruiting Rutger the rest is a cake. Have your group split up in 
two, one goes after the boss, the other deals with the Pirates. The smart 
thing would be to have Allen, Lance and Roy deal with the boss with Clarine 
as a back-up healer and Dieck, Rutger, Chad and Lugh the other side. Use the 
forests to your advantage. Also, don't try to use Dieck too much, he doesn't 
get much experience from this. Instead, use Rutger, Chad and Lugh, especially 
Lugh. Have Marcus or someone give Rutger an Iron Sword so that he'll deal 
non-lethal damage and let Lugh finish the rest. Oldest trick in the book.

Erik, you treacherous dog, time to end this once and for all. Use Allen to 
weaken him and finish him if you like. Lance, Roy, Thany, Dieck, Lugh are the 
other candidates. It depends on who you want to get levelled up fast.

The only serious obstacle is the boss himself. But I'll cover that later. 
Lots of Fighters here, so get those Sword users to the front line. Some of 
the characters are placed kind of behind the rest, like Dieck. Use Marcus to 
carry him the first turn and drop him somewhere the next turn. Make sure all 
your characters move to the north east side or some Bandits from the west 
will follow you through the mountains. The rest is just advancing to the 
throne. Shouldn't be too hard. Train the characters you'd like to use in the 
future and don't attack with the ones you don't want to use. Kill everyone 
you see, then confront the boss. Watch out, because here comes...

A Killer Axe! Swinging to your precious face. It is highly advised to avoid 
the Killer Axe and force him to use his Hand Axe instead. Use someone like

Day 10 : 4 Cavaliers from south

General Strategy:
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
It's better to recruit Zealot and Treck as soon as possible. Here's what I do. 
Position Marcus and either Allen or Lance at the most northeast side. Turn 1, 
move Roy next to the Cavalier, transport Roy as far northeast as you can. 
Move Marcus next to the Cavalier and pick and drop Roy somewhere north. The 
Armor Knight and Mercenary will attack Roy in their turn, so make sure that 
he has enough HP to survive those attacks. If not, use an Angelic Robe in 
turn one and heal immediately before rescuing him. Turn 2, move Roy south of 
the northern villages and block the path with Marcus so that he doesn't get 
attacked.

In this chapter, you're introduced to a dangerous adversary: Dragon Knights 
(or Wyvern Riders, but whatever, they're called Dragon Knights here). These 
will raise hell for you in the many chapters that lies ahead. The best thing 
to do is to lure them with an axe user (use forests if nearby) and destroy 
them with arrows or magic. Wolt, Dorothy, Sue or Lugh can do the job well. 
One of the Dragon Knights has a Red Gem, so steal it with a Thief first if 
you're feeling brave enough.

You're also introduced to the arena, a colliseum-like building at the center 
of the map. You can send a character there to fight random enemies of your 
own level, getting experience, weapon experience and gold in the process. 
Supports work, so use it to maximize your chances. The announcer will say who 
you'll be up against and charge you money for the bet. The general rule is 
that the more money they charge, the tougher the enemies get. Dragon Knights 
are particularly nasty. Win and your placed bet gets doubled, lose and your 
gold is lost in addition to your character. If you're seeing yourself in a 
losing situation, press B to exit the arena. You'll only lose your placed 
gold this way. Be careful, arenas have made me restart plentiful times 
because of carelessness. That's why I do not recommend arena abusing.

The difficult part of this chapter is the area east of the arena, this is 
where you'll fight to hold your ground. Get Allen and Lance there quickly to 
support Zealot and Treck. If possible, use terrain as your advantage. If 
you've recruited Zealot and Treck, send either one of them to the arena to 
recruit Noah the next turn. The area west of the arena can be dealt easily 
enough. When you've overcome that, it's time to head to the castle. Don't go 
through the left gate. It won't open and will only trigger reinforcements 
consisting of four Cavaliers, one which has a Silver Lance. Instead go 
through the opening to the right, this will trigger reinforcements near the 
throne. Summon the majority of your army and play defensively, meaning 
waiting for their turn and counterattack. Then take them out in your turn.

Lilina has been kidnapped by ninjas. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue her? 
To prevent her being attacked by the Archer, move her one position to the 
right. You could take care of the archer by placing a unit with long-range 
capabilities in its range. Whatever, it's not worth the time. I'd advise to 
bring Chad along too, since there are two areas with treasure chests. It'd 
save some turns instead of waiting for your Thief to finish.

This chapter takes a while to beat, primarily because the throne is a long 
way off. Use the many Cavaliers and Paladins at your disposal to move quickly, 
that includes rescuing the slower characters. Drop off when you're at the 
northeast part of the map. There's an Armor Knight with a nasty Knightslayer, 
dispose of it. Then rescue and move again till you're northwest, just south 
of where Barth, Oujay and Wendy appear. There you will encounter a bunch of 
enemies. The Mages behind the wall are particularly annoying. Use Javalins, 
Hand Axes, Bows or Magic. Alternatively, open the door and kick some ass.

After that, advance to the throne, freeing Lilina along the way. Cath should 
appear at this stage. Don't block the entrances to the chests and let her 
come to you. Once she's somewhere in the first chest area, talk to her with 
Roy. Pin her down with units if she's playing tough to get. She still won't 
join you however. Biotch. Then rescue Roy and a Thief and carry them all the 
way past the stairs area. You should have already taken down the two Armor 
Knights that guard the entrance.

Place a few units in front of the stairs, there will be some reinforcements 
for easy experience. Train Oujay and Wendy here if you want. At the left 
stairs, block the way so that the Archer can't attack. Defeat them for easy 
experience. The Mercenary right is a bit tougher to beat. As for Roy and the 
cavalry, advance to the throne and deal with the Mage and Armor Knight. 
Soldiers will appear from the west. Attack them with your Cavaliers so that 
they won't interfere you slaying the boss. Use Clarine or Vulneraries to heal 
back HP. The one carrying the Thief, go past the throne, to the second chest 
area, drop him and protect the entrance. It shouldn't be too difficult now.

My, there are a lot of bosses with high Defense. Your Armorslayer should

Your first Gaiden chapter. There will be more of these as you progress and 
each has a special theme. In this case, volcanic tiles. It's a great 
opportunity to train Lilina, Oujay and/or Wendy here. Have a small group of 
four to take the left side. I find Thany very useful here, as she can carry 
and reach the throne just by flying over the gap. Drop a solid character, 
like Dieck, to start pounding. Give him or her a Vulnerary just in case. You 
should be able to drop that unit in turn 5. The Archer won't move. 

The other group can just head to the throne from the right side. The red 
tiles I spoke of can spout flames giving 10 damage to a unit, friend or foe. 
Have at least two horseback riders, so that they can carry and drop a 
character instantly. With that trick, you can use that same character to 
attack and move it a few squares further. Very useful.

To finish this chapter quickly, you must be aware that some enemies won't 
move. These are the Mages between the red tiles, the Mage in front of the 
throne and the two lvl. 10 Mercenaries with Vulneraries. This will help you 
as you don't have to fear for retaliation. The only reason why this chapter's 
difficult is because of the boss.

Henning - Hero lvl. 1
HP 33 - STR 10 - SKL 19 - SPD 16 - LCK 5 - DEF 11 - RES 2 - CON 10

- Hand Axe

This might take a while. His 11 Defense will prove troublesome and his evade 
is solid as well. You'll have difficulty double attacking him, unless he 
equips the Steel Blade which lowers his Speed to 12. So what to do? LUGH! 
This is the reason to use a Mage. Fire has excellent accuracy and magic will 
eat his low Resistance away. His Hand Axe isn't very deadly. Heal if 
necessary. Attack him with one of your sword or lance user the next turn and 
let him (hopefully) have it. It can take a few days if you don't want to take 
chances. It can bring your rating down severely. Oh wait, the game doesn't 
record any ratings. :(

Your first chapter with FOW (Fog of War). Prepare Noah and Sue for battle, as 
well as a Thief. They're invaluable in getting information with their 
superior vision. Also a good training ground for Lilina, Oujay and Wendy if 
you play carefully. Fog of War will easily surprise you if you're reckless.

Recruiting Fir should be easy, since Noah can get there before Fir has the 
chance to strike. Recruiting Shin is another matter, he's hiding in the lower 
forest southwest of the throne and will only approach you if you're past the 
bridge at the north. A fast but risky approach is to drop Sue west in the 
upper forest forest with Thany in turn 3. The problem with this is that Sue 
and Thany will get shredded to pieces if they're not at a proper a level, 
let's say ten. A safer plan would be to have Sue follow the rest of your 
troops, bait Shin with someone and recruit him.

You can use Thany for different purposes. Like dropping a unit on the second 
bridge will force the Fighter to attack you with a Hand Axe. What you may 
have trouble with is that sometimes units get clogged. The solution is to 
rescue the slower characters and drop them somewhere past the second bridge 
in the center island. When you're there, have two or three horseback units go 
south. I usually have Allen and Lance pair up to go south and kick some 
pirate ass. Any Cavalier works providing he's at a decent level.

As for ambushes, there's an enemy fighter with Halberd (critical against 
horses) right of the bridge to the two village area, a Mage with Elfire and a 
Mercenary near the throne, and a Mage, Archer and Mercenary west.

Another tough boss. This one is even tougher than the last one, because you 
have to be a bit lucky to win this fight. A Berserker has a fairly good 
critical chance. You absolutely want him to use his Hand Axe. I cannot 
emphasize enough how great Lugh is for these kinds of situations. Lilina is 
still a bit too weak, but she can handle herself too with a few level ups 
mainly because of her insane Luck. His Defense is a lot for your units to 
handle, but Dieck and Allen are able to deal a decent amount of damage.

Finally some time to take a break. Only the Ballista and Berserker poses a 
problem, the rest is a matter of picking out the targets. Obviously, avoid 
the ballista like the plague if you're named Thany. If you want to level up 
Fir and Shin, now would be the time to do it. The Pirate and Fighter 
reinforcements are ideal to get some massive experience.

If you're eager to finish the chapter quickly, you might face the problem of 
recruiting Geese and getting Roy to the throne as fast as possible. The 
solution would be to place a few horseback riders within range of each other, 
pick up Roy and continuously chain trade all the way to the south.

Uh... yeah, nothing else to say really.

This boss can be tough with the life leeching spell Nosferatu. To top it off, 
he has decent Defense and Resistance. It's a good idea to let him attack 
first, he won't HP if he hits you since he already has full HP. Then cut half 
his HP down by counterattacking. Next turn, if you're lucky and he misses, 
you can kill him. Have healers standbye just in case.

Now it gets tough. This is just one of the chapters that's so random, you 
don't know what will happen next. The problem is that there are a lot of 
factors that might interfere your success. Remember when the reinforcements 
show up and protect Lalum at all cost. There are different ways to place your 
units depending on your play style. I'll give you the possibilities. 

First, you might notice a cracked wall at the top. Basically, you could send 
one, two, three (a healer if you can spare one) units to clear the wall and 
attack the Fighters while stopping the Bandits from pillaging the village. 
The wall has 100 HP. If you use two horseback units, one with an indirect 
weapon, you could theoretically break the wall in 5 turns. The one with the 
highest strength should be placed at the nearest square during the 
preparation menu, the other one behind him/her. The strongest one will reach 
there first. Now the thing is: You need to deal 100 damage with the first 
unit attacking 3 times and the second unit attacking 2 times. The enemy 
archer will try to sabotage you with a Killer Bow, so a healer would be nice. 
Or kill it with long-range weapons if you don't mind a turn of waste.

There's a second plan, but it's far more dangerous. This plan only works if 
you have a character who's far above the other characters, for example Dieck, 
preferably above lvl. 15. Or even better, promoted. Give him/her a Vulnerary 
too. Now what you do is, in turn 1, you carry the powerful unit with the help 
of Thany and move her on top of the wall at the right side. Then use Lalum's 
dance to let Thany move again. Move her somewhere between the Item shop and 
the Arena. With the spare movement, move her away from the enemy archer. If 
your character is powerful enough, he/she should slaughter the incoming 
Fighters with ease. The only problems you might encounter are the archer with 
the Killer Bow and the Shaman near the boss who can deal quite a bit of 
damage. I for one could trap the archer with the help of the enemy Fighters. 
You don't have to do anything, I've been replaying this chapter a lot of 
times and it consistently traps itself. The thing is that the A.I. moves the 
Fighters first, then the Archers.

Lastly, you could bundle your forces and take the South path. If you choose 
this method, you'll have to hurry your Cavaliers/Paladins to stop the Bandits 
from pillaging the villages. The good thing is that you can focus on one 
thing at a time, advancing with the help of Lalam and transporting. The bad 
thing is that some units are too slow to keep up with your faster units.

Now for the chapter itself, your first obstacle is recruiting Klein. Move 
Clarine or Roy on a diagonal line of the closed house above the south gate. 
Klein and his archers can't reach you there. Now this is a random part. There 
are three situations that can occur. The worst situation is that Klein 
doesn't move at all. Restart if this happens. Second worst is that his allies 
block the path to Klein. Restart as well if you can't reach him. The last 
situation is the best, he'll move and become reachable with Clarine. This is 
completely random, I don't know why he doesn't move. Same with Thite. She 
just stands there sometimes doing nothing, but that's later.

Second obstacle is you need to stop the bandits from pillaging the northeast 
village if you want a free Hero Crest. You don't really need Paladins for the 
job if you can lure away the Fighters away which I've described above with 
the second plan. It's a bit more difficult though if the Fighters follow you 
south. It's quite possible, but it's advisable that you bring either Marcus 
or Zealot if you don't want to rush and take risks. You have to at least have 
a unit in the neighborhood of the northeast village by day 6. Bandits will 
appear after your day 6 and move within pillaging range. If you move in their 
range however in day 7, they'll attack you first instead of the village. So 
there's still a margin of one day if you're slow.

Third obstacle is Echidna and her goonies. Don't worry, she's an NPC. But 
enemies do appear out of the center closed house next to the arena. You can 
be quite surprised by them if you don't prepare yourself. What you must NOT 
do is have Lalum somewhere where she can be hit by Hand Axes. Yes, the 
enemies carry Hand Axes and she WILL die easily by them. I know you want to 
have her close by to recruit Echidna, but you really shouldn't let her move 
in too close. Better to wait for the next turn than to restart all over again. 
You can block the path with 3 or 4 units to ensure they don't get Lalum, just 
don't move too close or they'll appear inside your safety zone and still kill 
Lalum. Well, that's about it.

Fourth and last is Thite. Like I've said earlier, she doesn't move sometimes. 
It's not really a problem though if you know what you're doing. The solution 
is to talk to her with Thany. She and her allies will become NPC's, making it 
much easier to recruit with Klein. Have Thany somewhere between the arena and 
the item shop, Thite will appear in day 7. And you can move in if she flies. 
Or if she doesn't move you could retreat, lure the other Pegassi and sneak 
behind her. It's a bit random who they want to hunt, it depends on the unit, 
but try to avoid battles.

This isn't a difficult chapter, there's not much enemy forces you have to 
deal with. There are a couple of things that might be helpful though. You 
have to split your army into two, with the left group being your main force 
and the right group mainly to deal with the Priests. Have both of your 
thieves at each group to open the chests, and a healer in each group. 

In the right group, have someone at to deal with the Fighter equipped with a 
Killer Axe without much trouble in the first turn. The Sniper with the Silver 
Bow might be troublesome, have a long range unit deal with it first before 
breaking the wall, I had a promoted Dieck with a Hand Axe for instance. The 
Priest with a Sleep Staff is annoying as well. I don't know why, but it kept 
targeting my Saul with a minimum chance of success. After you're done, go 
with some remaining units to the north and block the entrance to the chests, 
one in front of the door and one between the walls. This makes Cass go to the 
other side, where Roy is, if you haven't blocked the other side as well of 
course.

Aine - Mamkute Lvl. 8
HP 32 - STR 7+10 - SKL 1+10 - SPD 3 - LCK 7 - DEF 3+20 - RES 5+5
- Fire Stone

Your first encounter with a Mamkute. These inhuman beings can transform into 
a Fire Dragon, a lesser form before you're worried, and attack which pierces 
your defenses. The Fire Stone gives the Mamkute the stat bonuses, with the 
most remarkable a whopping 20 defense, so it's obvious that Magic is the 
preferred killing method. They won't be able to counterattack. I had a 
promoted Lugh at this point, but a lvl. 10 Lilina works too although she's 
still too weak at this point. You do have a Wyrmslayer, so use it as well. 
It'll go down pretty quickly against that, just watch out for the 
counterattack. And kill the Priest first of course, or it'll heal the boss.

This is the perfect opportunity to train your weaker units, especially sword 
users such as Roy, Fir and Oujay. Cavaliers are also helpful. The enemies are 
weak, except for the Druid and the boss. Magic users are a bit more fragile, 
so watch out for that. There are lots of chests in this chapter, mostly 
containing Elixirs and Antitoxins. There are a 3 thieves who will try to 
steal it, however you can immobilize one of them in the first turn by 
stealing his Lockpick. I advise you to bring two thieves along, you should 
have Chad and Astore above lvl. 10 by now. Also because they can they see 
through the fog of war. Don't worry about them, the Bandits can't hit them. 
You'll get poisoned by the gas coming out of the walls, but meh, I consider 
that more healing opportunities. Speaking of healers, one healer is enough 
methinks. With just 8 characters to participate, it wouldn't do you good if 
half of your team consisted of Thieves and healers. Just give the others 
Vulneraries or something.

Now on to some actual strategy bits, two teams again. One goes north, other 
goes east. What I do the first turn is I steal the Lockpick from the Thief as 
I mentioned above, get rid of the Archer with a Cavalier, kill the Bandit 
with the Halberd with another Cavalier and the lone Bandit with someone. If 
you've chosen characters you want to develop, then you could be in trouble 
killing the high HP Bandits. Oh well, it's not like you have to hurry up or 
anything. They somehow almost always target my Thieves whenever they have the 
opportunity, must be their low Defense. Watch out for the Shaman and kill it 
the next turn. There will be another Thief showing up, get the chest with 
your Thief and it'll flee to the north. Chase it with your Cavalier. The 
third and last Thief might prove troublesome as he already has stolen quite 
some treasure. You could steal it back, but what are you going to do with 
Antitoxins anyway? I say kill the bastard the next time you see him. Problem 
is the coward will likely hide somewhere near the Druid who can kick your ass 
with Nosferatu. If you have a Paladin, now would be a good chance to use him. 
Kill it with one fell swoop! It has like 30 HP, so it'd be nice to equip a 
Silver Lance or something to OHKO. Or you could lure it with a character with 
high Resistance, just remember it can heal itself whenever it damages you. Or 
if you're really good, you can strike him when he still has his Eclipse 
equipped which means no counterattack. The rest is pretty easy.

Tricky, tricky, another Berserker. That means a chance of getting OHKO'd. Be 
sure to have a character with high Luck fight him and equipped with a sword 
of course. It's avisable that you force him to use his Hand Axe first, then 
attack him on all three sides the second turn. Allen does a good job, even 
better when he's promoted as he should be able to double attack, just barely. 
Dieck with his high Strength can deal a great amount of damage and Lugh packs 
a punch too as a Sage. He should be dead by then. If not and you're unlucky, 
well, it happens.

Zephiel kicks yo ass! This chapter is a real pain if you want to recruit 
Percival within the given time limit. Fortunately you don't have to, since 
he'll appear for a second time in Chapter 15. Yay! *dances* If only I knew 
this the first time. :( 

Time to split up the group again. I would advise you to bring some cavalry 
units, except flying ones to the south bridge. The Ballistas are annoying, so 
take them out quickly. You should have a promoted Allen or Lance by now. The 
enemy Paladin is tough to kill, an axe user or a magic user should take care 
of that relatively quickly. It'll become quite easy when you beat the Snipers. 
The Dragon Knights that fly towards you can be dealt with the freshly 
recruited Miredy, trust me, you want to train her. Give her a Killing Lance 
though, Steel Lances suck.

The northern bridge can be dealt with the more slower units, since there's no 
rush to recruit Percival. Have at least an axe user to deal with the many 
Cavaliers. There are a couple with Killer Lances and Axereavers, but it 
shouldn't be too troublesome. When Percival leaves, consider this chapter 
finished. Only the boss remains, Zephiel's (luckily) gone, so is Narshen.

Phew, if Zephiel had stayed, he would have made minced meat out of all of 
your units. This guy is a joke against a Magic user. Axe users work excellent 
as well. Work together if you're short on damage. He should fall in one turn.

This can be a dangerous chapter - being a desert hindering your movement and 
being fog of war with limited sight, while Dragon Knights are hunting down 
your more vulnerable units - but it isn't tricky at all if you know what 
you're doing. Just don't involve Sophia in anything. Gawd, she's like a bunny 
surrounded by a pack of wolves. And Cecilia will act as Sleep bait. Now 
because this is a desert, you want to do some preparation. First, ditch all 
horse mounted units. They're useless when traversing through sand. Nomads are 
the exception, because they can be quite handy with their destructive bows. 
Flyers are a must, so use Thany/Thite and Miredy. They don't get any movement 
penalties. Same with any magic-user (because they float?), so Lugh, Lilina, 
Rei, it's all good. You want either Ellen or Saul, since Clarine is kind of 
useless. And you also want a Thief. Not only can they unbury treasure with a 
100% success rate, they can see any danger coming 8 squares away. Give them a 
Torch to see even more. Equip someone with a Wyrmslayer, there are a couple 
of annoying Mamkutes in this chapter waiting to ambush you.

Now when you're done, start the chapter. What you want to do is you split the 
group into the main force going northeast and a smaller group going east. The 
main force will deal with the northwest Dragon Knights and the Mercenaries 
and Heroes north. The smaller force will deal with the southeast Dragon 
Knights and the many Mages that inhabit there. There are also 3 Mamkutes 
interspersed in this map. To be precise, there's one north of your starting 
position near the bones. And two south of the temple, one near the south most 
plateau and one just a little southwest of that, almost touching the bottom. 
Don't worry too much, they'll only come after you if you move in their range 
and their movement is a pitiful four. Watch out though, you can easily get in 
their path because of the small vision. If you just take the shortest path to 
the temple, you can avoid them easily. Arrange your troops as you like. 

In the first few days, watch out for the Dragon Master who can kill your weak 
units with one hit. Shield them or stay far away from the northwest side. 
Move a Thief on the double to get field information and to possibly avoid 
danger. Carry units near the upmost plateau with your flying units. Rescue 
Sophia with someone or she'll get asleep by a nasty Sleep Staff. Bait it with 
Cecilia. For the smaller team to the east, kill the Mage and set up a defense 
zone near the bones with your magic user behind it. The Dragon Knights will 
commence the attack. It'd be really handy to have Lugh or Lilina who can kill 
the Dragon Master in one attack. I presume Rei isn't too strong at this point. 
Miredy can act as good bait with her high Defense, a promoted Lugh can dodge 
well too. But these are just suggestions.

The other dangers are obviously the two massive, but very lovely, Berserkers. 
Move some Sword users back to the east when you're done securing the temple. 
Just pray that they won't land a critical on you. After that, you're pretty 
much done, you only have to deal with the weak Bandits, kill the boss and 
some Mamkutes and transporting your Thief across the map to get all the 
buried treasure. Go promote a magic user. Now it wasn't that hard, was it?

His long range attack sucks, so exploit it. It shouldn't take long with a

Noooooooo! Bolting! The worst part is that there are two of them, a good 
chance of frying any low Resistance unit to a pile of ashes. Remember that 
the boss can't move and that Bolting has a range of ten, so check often to 
make sure you're out of their range. Of course, you'll have to get in their 
range to be able to finish the chapter. Don't bring in any weaklings with a 
combination of low HP and low Resistance. On top of Bolting, rows of platform 
tiles disappear every turn, causing your units to be trapped in water. 
Luckily they won't drown or anything, but they will be immobile unless you 
rescue them with your flyers or whenever the platform comes back. If you're 
cautious, thus having full control over the situation, this chapter is easy. 

You could bring a Barrier Staff or Silence Staff to help you deal with the 
boss and Sage, but it's also very possible to defeat them without using it. 
You should have a promoted Sage by now, with the second Guiding Ring obtained 
in the previous chapter, he or she will make this chapter much easier. Also, 
a Paladin, Falcon Knight or Nomadic Trooper are very handy to have, primarily 
to finish off the boss in 1 turn. It's entirely possible to finish this 
chapter in 6 days, but you will have to have at least three very good 
promoted units with a movement of 8. This is how you can basically achieve 
that. Carry Roy, kill the enemy forces at the south with counterattacking, 
ignore any Bolting coming your way, heal with Clarine or a Priest with Physic 
and kill the Sage in the 5th turn leaving the door open to kill the boss 
afterwards. The boss can be easily killed in 1 turn, especially because 
Bolting weighs his Attack Speed down. Don't worry about it if you don't have 
the necessary tools, it's likely that you don't want to miss out on the 
experience anyway. Turn 8 or 9 is also very good.

If he didn't use up all his Bolting, consider this a piece of cake. It means 
he'll have an AS of 12, causing him to be double attack prey. If you prefer 
to avoid his Bolting and use it all up, then it's a bit more difficult. With 
Elfire, he can deal serious damage to your non-magic units. But it's nothing 
to be afraid of, his HP is low.

If you didn't recruit Percival in Chapter 13, here's another opportunity for 
you. It's easier to recruit him too, with as fast as day 2. If you do, 
remember to watch out for the Dragon Knight with a Silver Lance who can kill 
the northeast NPC with ease. Send a flyer with the help of Lalum/Elphin to 
deal with him. There are a lot of bow users here, so watch out. If the NPCs 
make it safely, they'll flee towards the southeast. For you other units 
heading northeast, use the terrain as your advantage. As for Garret, have 
Lilina near the east village by turn 4, whether you carry her or not. Not

Worst. Chapter. Ever. Bolting, Purge, Silence, Knightkillers, Mamkutes, Gems 
to steal, this chapter has it all. It will drive you absolute nuts, 
especially if you're a perfectionist. I can remember my first time when I 
didn't train any of my Thieves. Pure hell. Bring a Barrier Staff along if 
your Thieves have trouble staying alive. Then there's the annoying Douglas, 
who has to survive to be able to enter the Gaiden Chapter. I tell ya, this is 
one random chapter. There's not much else to give you except a vague 
guideline. The AI is so irregular here, you just have to be creative and 
improvise a lot. Although having an army of promoted units helps of course, a 
lot even. Honestly, all the hard work you've been doing of training the 
various characters will finally pay off here. If you've prepared and 
organized that with care, then this will become much, much easier.

Now you'll have to split up again. I prefer mobile units left, since it's a 
long way through the corridor to the gate. Roy needs to be transported to the 
right side though, since you have to recruit Hugh with him, so have a high 
movement unit carry him right from the start. Obviously it's a good idea to 
have one Thief and one healer in both groups. Clarine fits the left side 
better with her superior movement and choose the Thief with the best evade 
and/or Resistance to the right side. There are a couple of items you can 
steal, so browse through the enemies to get the Thieves on the right time.

Now to avoid getting Douglas killed, the logical thing to do is to trap him 
in a corner with a bunch of high evade units. Strip them of their equipment 
if they're able to deal lethal damage. This is the best method if you want 
full control. Well, actually, Sleep would be the best method, but that's a 
waste in my opinion. Feel free to use it if you're having trouble keeping 
either Douglas or your units alive. Another method is to lure him and 
basically move him in a circle. Choose which method gets your preference.

Talk to Hugh with Roy to get the Member Card. Pay him either 10000, 8000, 
6000 or 5000G. Or if you want to preserve your Funds rank, steal the card and 
kill him. Either way, use the Member Card to enter the secret shop. The 
secret shop is on the tile where Zeis is. Recruit Zeis with Miredy and enter 
the secret shop and buy some rare items if you want. Use the Silver Card to 
half the purchasing price. Steal a couple of Red Gems from the enemies if 
your funds is low.

Pretty hard to kill if he lands his blows. He's pretty hard to double attack 
too. Hit him hard and fast with magic, he can't connect his hits every time 
if your evade is decent enough. The way to do it is to get within range and 
end your turn. Even if he hits you, it won't help him if his HP is full. Then 
counterattack and kill him the next turn. It's good to have someone with good 
accuracy to do this job. An even easier method, steal his Delphi Shield and 
unleash a barrage of arrows. He shouldn't be able to last long against that. 
Have a few healers in position just in case you miss.

This chapter is pretty intimidating if you haven't trained a bunch of magic 
users. Bolting, Purge, Silence and Berserk are things to be very afraid of. 
Especially Berserk, because the boss seems to have a hauntingly good hit rate 
with that. Remember, staff evade consists entirely of Resistance. I suggest 
to move out of his range (which is 15) at all costs. Use your unit's highest 
Resistance and deplete his staff before you move in. You can move into his 
range early on somewhere near the Sage with Bolting. Barrier works wonders 
too. You don't want to take chances. If one of your unit gets berserked 
though, well, there's not much you can do except for the Rest Staff (lvl. D, 
10 uses). Consider yourself lucky if he misses. The non-magic enemies won't 
put up much of a resistance, so your main concerns are the long-range magic 
and Berserk. If you can manage through that, it's a breeze afterwards. One 
last thing though, at the end of your turn, stars will fall from the sky, 
hitting and giving 10 damage to all units in its line. So remember to keep 
everyone at a reasonable amount of HP. The stars won't hit the enemies in 
their starting positions of the first day, remember those lines.

Fog of War chapter yet again, and yet again, chock-full of Dragon Knights 
waiting to ambush, so be careful. I suggest sending Magic users to the dense 
forests east, since there's an army of Mages hiding. Use the forests as your 
protection against Bolting and the Ballista. 

The most important thing if you're a perfectionist is to get to the northeast 
village in day 5 or one of the three Thieves will plunder it. And no, you 
can't steal it back, the item doesn't show up in the inventory. It's Eclipse 
though, pretty useless, so I wouldn't bother if you don't care about it or 
the Funds rank.

If you do want it, then the only way to go is through the air, so I hope you 
have a good Falcon Knight and/or a Dragon Master or this mission will be near 
impossible. Bolting is your main concern, having a 1/4 hit chance at worst. 
You generally don't have time to heal back, so I advise to give them a 
Vulnerary or Elixer just in case Bolting hits. The Dragon Knights that stand 
in your way is another concern, that's why it's better to have two flyers. 
One to take on the Dragon Knights and one to go after the village.

It's easy peasy if that's done. Just watch out for the fort near the castle 
where Cavaliers appear, although they won't put up much of a fight.

This is a very tricky chapter. Lots of Nomadic Troopers with high mobility. I 
advise you to not bring any weak units, since they can snipe them dead pretty 
much anywhere. Flyers are at your own risk, use the Delphi Shield you stole 
in Chapter 16. Inaccurate units, mostly axe users, may have trouble hitting. 
Those Nomads have pretty good accuracy and evade. High defense units will 
likely not receive any damage. The problem is hitting them, therefore Swords 
and Anima prove to be the most effective. Healers should be well protected if 
they can't defend for themselves, use Physic if you want to avoid risks.

I for one use this chapter to train Fa, as it's the perfect opportunity to 
get many level-ups by killing the many Nomadic Troopers. She can't receive 
any damage as well thanks to her Divine Stone. Do it, you know you want to 
see her get insane level-ups.

As for how to deal with this chapter, the most obvious thing is to create a 
choking point at the river's right side where there are forests to hide. Use 
most of your army to create that and pick them out one for one with long-
range weapons. They will try to target the lower defense units, so a Magic 
user in a forest can quickly obliterate them all. Try to transport one with a 
high movement unit to one of those forests and make sure he/she has a 
competent evade rate. Deal with the Myrmidons, Shamans and Dragon Knights in 
the east with a small army.

Now the thing that causes most restarts are the Nomad reinforcements. They 
appear out of the tents in the circle starting from day 5 and it's completely 
at random! It's a combination of Nomads and Nomadic Troopers, so there's no 
telling what will come out. So weaker units with low evade or flyers should 
get the hell out of here ASAP. Form a wall to protect them, I can't count the 
times that a Nomadic Trooper has caused the death of a Priest. If all of your 
units are strong enough that you don't fear the recruitments, then charge the 
throne and dispose of the boss. Or if you don't care about the Tactics rank 
you can gain experience and weapon level points with the abundance of 
recruitments that show up in the course of 18 days.

Well, this isn't too difficult. The only thing that you have to worry about 
are Silence, Sleep and the abundance of Nomads. The mistake that some make is 
that they form a wall, equip a long-range weapon to counter-attack and let 
them come to you. The Nomads have pretty good accuracy, so if they all damage 
you little by little, and you kill them one by one, then it's possible that 
your unit can perish. It's a good tactic to clear all the enemies quickly in 
one day, but be careful nonetheless. You can rely on that tactic if he/she 
has good evade (supports help this) or if his/her defense is exceptionally 
high. Also, watch out for the Air Caliburs which can bring down flyers with 
relatively ease. Delphi Shield remedies this luckily. Other than that, it's a 
piece of cake.

I suggest you to attack him from long-range. That way, he won't have a 
critical hit rate and Light Brand will halve his power. It's likely you can't 
double attack him, so it can take two days. His evade is pretty high, so 
bring a unit with a hit support if you can.

Day 12 : 1 Thief from stairs

General Strategy:
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Sonuva... Better pack up a Warp Staff to deal with the sissies who are hiding 
behind the walls. Especially if your Thief can't survive even one Bolting. 
Another solution would be to bring a few Chest Keys and Door Keys if you 
don't mind the two stealable Red Gems. Then there's the Berserk staff which 
you can counter with Rest thank God. But for the challenged, it's entirely 
possible to complete this within 9 days.

The Thief or a unit with Door Keys has to open the doors to the right in day 
2, 3, 4 and 6. Berserk will likely target a unit it can easily hit, so have 
Restore ready. Use Warp to deal with it if you want to get rid of it as fast 
as possible. You'll have to be a bit lucky with the enemy's Bolting. They'll 
likely target the one with the lowest Resistance OR one that's been injured 
and could die from a single Bolting. Most of the times, the target is your 
Thief who likely has crap Resistance. You can counter this by using Barrier 
so that they'll target the next lowest Resistance. Just make sure the victim 
has a good evade, at least lower than 40%. Supports help tremendiously. Also, 
make sure that your other units who are cleaning up the mess to not get in a 
near-death situation. Or if they do, you have a healer standbye. Use Niime 
with her Physic staff if you can't reach them. The Ballistas can be annoying 
as well. If you've warped a unit to deal with Berserk, you can clear the 
Sniper at the right side. There are so many possibilities to deal with all 
the looming danger, choose the one which suits you best.

If you want to finish it in 8 days, you can't open all the chests and steal 
the Red Gem from the boss in that time. That's why it's handy to bring a 
Chest Key along, preferably two. If the Bolting dudes are all out of ammo, 
then consider it beaten. The boss hardly proves a challenge. If you don't 
care about beating it in 8 days, then you can also warp a Thief to the left 
side wall to steal a Red Gem from the Sage and an Orion's Bolt from a Sniper. 
Do whatever you like. Your Thief will likely have a hard time, I don't know 
what their stats are, but giving him/her a Killing Edge won't be a bad idea. 
Heal with Niime if in trouble.

WTF... six bosses? Luckily, you only have to beat one of them to end the 
chapter, but that would be wasted experience for sure. If you don't care 
about that though, then it's possible to beat it in 6 days. If you don't want 
that, then skip the next three paragraphs.

There are three groups that each have a job. Let's start with the most 
important group, which are the units in the west. They are your main 
offensive force, therefore select the most elite of your army for this job, 
preferably four that can support each other in some way. You have to deal 
with the groups of Nomads near the two thrones, so that they won't interfere 
with the real throne. Basically use the same tactic as in C19A, use long-
range weapons for counter-attack, but have either a good evade (20% failure) 
or good defense to be able to hold. When you're done with that, you can do 
whatever you want. Kill some fake bosses, lend Roy a hand, whatever. The 
Druid with Sleep has a range of 11 and will probably try to hit one or two of 
your units though, but even if he hits, it doesn't matter.

The second group is the south group. Even if its task looks minor, it's 
essential to complete this chapter without major risks. You have to lure 
Berserk, while having a healer with Rest standbye. And you have to lure the 
eastern Dragon Knights to come to the south, they can hinder the north group. 
After day three, their job is over.

The last group is naturally the group with Roy. You have to transport Roy and 
a unit that can deal with the boss across the river. Whether you use a flyer, 
a Nomadic Trooper or a Berserker, it doesn't matter. Although I prefer flyers 
and Nomadic Troopers for their high movement. The thing to watch out for is 
Berserk, it has a range of 11, so count and make sure you don't get in its 
range. What you also want to do is to take on the two Nomadic Troopers near 
the real throne, so that they won't hinder you later. Position a long-range 
unit with good accuracy to the south of the left bridge, touching the river 
side. If you position the unit further away to the right, the Dragon Knights 
from the east will come after you and you don't want that. After day three, 
when the boss uses up Berserk, carry and move Roy and the boss killer across 
the river. Remember that rescuing brings down Speed, but if you've done 
everything I've said, you should be enemy-free. In day 5, proceed to the 
throne and unload Roy who should be able to reach the throne in day 6. And 
unload the boss killer who should be able to hit the boss, whether it's from 
the front or the side. Use units from the left group if you have trouble with 
the boss.

If you do want all that juicy experience, and I assume the lot of you do, 
then kill the bosses one by one. Conquer the fake thrones afterwards with Roy 
and get some easy weapon level points. The bosses aren't very difficult to 
beat if you know who to use against them. Mostly, you want accurate units 
against the Nomadic Troopers with moderate Luck so that they can't critical. 
And you want units with high Resistance against the Druids. Even Nosferatu is 
useless if it can only deal a few damage.

It may look tame at first glance, but look at the reinforcements. 0_0
The reinforcements are a bit random, sometimes they'll send a couple more 
Dragon Knights, sometimes less. It's a bit vague really, but just remember 
the spots where they show up. That is southwest, south in the mountains to 
the left of the throne and near the eastern mountains.

You must create a choking point in the south, preferably with axe users and 
long-range attackers behind them. They're not very tough if you're careful, 
just don't let the Dragon Knights fly behind your troops and attack the 
weaker units. Always check their range. The east side will be full with enemy 
Dragon Knights as well. Axe users are also preferred, but if you're all out 
of available ones, then Lance and Bow users will serve as well. The south is 
a bit more difficult, so I suggest to focus there. You can go to the throne 
with Roy on an easier route, to the right of the choking point is a village 
with minimal enemy resistance. Carry Roy and go there to avoid the chaos.

The Dragon Knight reinforcements from the east seem to be fresh recruits, so 
they're not a huge problem to deal with.

Gale's reinforcements are reluctant to attack your units. I'm not sure how 
the AI is programmed here, but he and his troops sometimes attack and 
sometimes they don't, even though Gale has been ordered to attack Roy. 
They'll try to swarm some units of yours. I'm guessing that it depends on the 
unit whether they attack or not. Put an Axe user in a forest and you'll be 
fine. Gale will just cling to a unit doing nothing. Kill him if you want, but 
you're soulless if you do that. Poor Miredy ;_;

Like all the previous Gaiden chapters, it has traps in it. This time they're 
invisible which adds to the difficulty. They deal 10 damage, so be careful. 
The traps are placed throughout the left and right path next to the rivers 
surrounding the throne area. The traps can be dismantled by a Thief if he/she 
is standing on one, but you don't have the time and patience to move to one 
square and hope to dismantle them. There are also spears that shoot out of 
the walls at the two entrances after you cross the bridge. They deal physical 
damage, but their power is, like, crap. They deal zero damage even when your 
defense is only 7. Wow.

To beat this chapter, simply bring along your strongest units with a bunch of 
healers of course. Flyers are a good idea, since they can carry units over 
the river. Magic users are highly advisable since there are many units with 
strong defense. There are also a couple of Snipers and Druids which are easy 
prey for magic users. Some enemy units won't move, like the ones defending 
the chest area (Hero and General), bridges (Berserker and General) and throne 
(three Druids, the Hero will attack), so you don't have to fear them. Watch 
out when opening the chests, they're traps, Mamkutes will appear. They're 
totally random, so watch out. It's possible to beat it in 15 days doing 
everything. Just try to advance as quickly as possible. Mounted units with 
their high movement and Rescue option help a lot. And give everyone an Elixer 
or something, because you're going to get damaged a lot.

There is a way to beat this chapter in 10 turns, but you'll have to disregard 
much of the experience that can be gained. You must have at least two decent 
flyers (preferably supported), your strongest warrior (preferably a magic 
user) and Roy to be able to complete the task. The two flyers are basically 
needed to carry the other two to the throne. Position them either to the far 
left or far right side. You might want to give your units some elixirs just 
in case. In day 1, cross the river and stick to the river south of the throne 
area. A Shaman will attack you, dodge its attack. Fly to the left or right 
side (I prefer the right side myself) and follow the river, ignoring 
everything, until you reach the bridge. You want to fly at the side of the 
river or a Druid and Sniper will kick your slow ass. 

In day 4, unload the strongest unit in front of the enemy blocking the bridge 
and destroy it in the enemy's turn. The Shaman and Sniper will attack and be 
killed as well. Aren't magic users wonderfully useful? Oh, you might want to 
evade that Silence Staff though. In day 5, 6, 7 and 8, advance and deal with 
the remaining Druids. Unload Roy in day 7 if you need the help of the other 
flyer. In day 9, use the magic user to deal with the Hero with the Brave 
Sword and advance to the throne, rescuing and dropping Roy if you must. Day 
10, destroy the boss and clear the chapter. It's a good challenge. Try it out 
some time. Although it isn't very good for your Exp rank. So I just wasted 30 
minutes typing this.

Supports help a lot to evade his Nosferatu. Sure, you still need some luck, 
but who doesn't? Either way, have some reinforcements standbye just in case. 
If you want to play it safe, you could just let the boss attack first and 
nail him with a double attack. Then kill him the next turn.

Finally, it's time to strike Bern hard. Lots of promoted enemies, actually 
they are all promoted except for a few Mercenaries. Snipers, Heroes, Generals, 
Druids, they're all lethal. Especially the Druids with Fenrir. I've said it 
before that it has lousy accuracy, but prepare to suffer if it actually hits.

To open the gate to Zephiel, you have to stand once on the two red switches 
guarded by Heroes with any unit and have Roy end his turn before the gate. 
The right switch shouldn't be a problem. The left switch however is a long 
road. Have a couple of high movement units to cover that. Clarine proves to 
be highly useful with her magic and staves.

It's advisable to have two Restore staves to counter the Druid with Berserk, 
one at each side. It has a 100% hit rate against anyone with bad Resistance. 
Even a Resistance above 20 can't be helped. After opening the gate, Roy and 
Zephiel will have a chat and trigger reinforcements southwest and southeast.

Once you have opened the gate to Zephiel (you could manage it in turn 10/11 
or so), do NOT rush in and attack the Heroes. I repeat, do NOT rush in. The 
reason is that the two Mamkutes will rape you if you do that. Stay out of 
their range, form a defensive line of three units and let the two Heroes and 
two Druids come to you. I prefer long range units in the left and right side, 
so that they can take out the Druids as well. Have a couple of magic users or 
units with Wyrmslayers ready to kill the Mamkutes in one single turn. 

Then proceed to take out the rest of the enemies and Zephiel. Reinforcements 
will show up from the stairs two turns after you open the gate. That's the 
same turn you should have dealt with the Mamkutes. They consist of 1 Druid 
(top left), 1 Sniper, (top right), 1 Hero (bottom left) and 1 Berserker 
(bottom right). Another salvo of the same units will show up three turns 
after that. Try to avoid getting hit thus avoiding danger needlessly, use 
long range attacks as often as you can.

As a last thing, you can try the steal glitch here if you really want to feel 
suicidal. I'm not going to explain it, as it could have effects on your saves. 
I don't want to be held responsible. Basically, you can steal a Fire Dragon 
Stone if your Thief is Berserked and give it to Fa. It's way too cumbersome 
to achieve that though.

- Hero Crest

Awesome battle theme. First steal the Hero Crest and rescue the Thief, then 
commence the beating... well, not really. His Defense and Resistance are 
excellent and his weapon is downright badass, too bad you can't get it. You 
don't get any experience from him, so don't bother abusing. Have Roy beat 
that nut with the SoS, or if he's still too weak, attack him with your 
strongest units with Lvl. A weapons. I do feel kind of sorry for him, that 
jealous father of his. May you finally rest in peace.

This has to be one of the most annoying chapters, ever. At least Chapter 21 
gave you straightforward, relentless attacks, this chapter is just annoying. 
Don't bring characters with low Defense, with the exception of Thieves, 
they'll get ripped to shreds by the ballistas. You could hide them in Forests, 
but they're not going to be much help that way. Unless you REALLY need an 
extra healer, you shouldn't bring Yodel or Niime. Bring a few Restore staves 
too, if you're low, there's a shop near your starting position that sells it.

I hope you have some decent flyers by now, and with decent I mean decent HP 
and either dodging (Speed and Luck) or Defense to survive the army of Dragon 
Knights. Equip one with the Delphi Shield and move into the range of the 
Dragon Knights near the island. It's better to have two flyers, but one with 
godlike stats can suffice. If you have A supports with any flyer, now is the 
time to use it. Place him/her three spaces away from the flyer to get combat 
bonuses, it should help you dodge attacks, especially the Dragon Master with 
the Killer Lance.

Once again you need to split your group up, your main force should be on the 
right, while a smaller force should be able to deal handle the left side. The 
two Ballistas will likely target a character with relatively the lowest HP 
and Defense, regardless of evade. Someone like Clarine shouldn't have trouble 
dodging those attacks, a Thief on the other hand could get in trouble without 
supports. Get the Thief in Forests or rescue if necessary. You should be able 
to avoid the ballistas if you check their range before making a move.

There are three Druids with status inflicters that are hella annoying, one 
with Berserk, two with Sleep. They have a range of 16 (22/2 + 5), so be 
prepared to use Restore Staves if necessary. The Snipers near the boss won't 
attack you strangely enough, that doesn't mean you can relax though, those 
four Druids can still kick your ass if you're not careful enough.

You can try the steal glitch in this chapter as well. Once again, I'm not 
going to explain it in detail since the developers didn't mean to include it 
as part of the game, same with the mine glitch in FE7.

- Bolting
- Guiding Ring

Attack her when she's still using Bolting. That will lower her evade 
considerably, plus you won't get counterattacked. She's a tough cookie, with 
high evade and defenses, but she'll eventually fall. Be sure to have a decent 
hit rate, you don't want to waste a turn and get Bolted. Steal the Guiding 
Ring as well. She can deal 35 damage max with Bolting, so use a Barrier staff 
if your Thief can't survive an attack (after applying Resistance).

Bleh. Not exactly an engaging chapter. Mamkutes are your only enemies, so 
there's not much strategy required. Kind of boring if you ask me. Pick eight 
of your strongest characters and equip them with the Divine weapons, or 
lacking that, Wyrmslayers. If you haven't trained units in every weapon 
category to level S, choose a healer or two with Physic instead, as you will 
heal a lot. A Dancer or Bard are useful to have, you might like them.

The difficulty in this chapter lies in if you want to successfully advance 
your troops without getting them in a traffic jam, meaning getting in each 
other's way. Now this isn't something that's easy to explain, so just try to 
check movement regularly and move as quickly as you can. If some units are 
behind, rescue them with any cavalry. You'd want to do this to get Roy from A 
to B quickly since he has to conquer the thrones to advance. So have a 
cavalry unit right next to the throne to pick up Roy after he conquers. You 
don't have to worry too much, about 20-24 turns is good too.

He'll die against any Divine weapon, especially the tomes. He can't attack 
you indirectly, so you can abuse him all you want. I think it's a waste of 
time though, since there's only one chapter ahead which is the easiest 
chapter in the whole game. It's not even a chapter. So abuse if you want to 
continue playing the Trial Maps or the Link Arena.

8. SUPPORT SYSTEM                                                      [SPPT]

=============================================================================

The Support system is a tricky business to understand, but it yields very 
nifty bonuses. Bonuses that can make the game a lot easier. But first you'll 
have to understand how it works to reap the benefits to the fullest. I'm here 
to explain that. If you already know how it works, presumably from FE7, you 
can skip this introductionary part.

8.1 HOW IT WORKS
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Two characters, who are related or sometimes unrelated, can support each 
other by standing right next to each other. This means the two will have to 
be adjacent to each other. The result is that they'll gain support points. 
Obviously, characters who are very close gain more support points than 
characters who have just met (1 being the lowest and 4 being the highest). 
The two also have a starting support value (1, 20, 30, 40 or even higher 
depending on the existing relationship) and will go up every time they stand 
next to each other when the turn ends. When you gain the required amount of 
support points, you get the extra command option 'support'. Choose this 
command and the two will gain a support level. However, there's a limited 
amount of support points to be gained per Chapter (around 125).

There are three support levels in total C, B and A from lowest to highest. 
The higher the support level, the higher the bonuses. The bonuses will be 
explained shortly. To gain a C support, you have to gather a minimum of 60 
points, 120 for a B and 200 for an A. The thing is that you can only gain 
five support levels per character. So you could have an A and a B or two B's 
and a C, but not an A, a B and a C. So watch out who you support with.

Now the support bonuses affect your battles. They will be activated once the 
two characters are adjacent to three squares away from each other. The 
bonuses range from dealing more damage, receiving less damage, higher hit 
rate, higher evade rate, higher critical rate and higher critical evade. 
Which bonuses you get depends on the affinity of the two characters. See 8.3 
for the support bonuses.

It's not always easy to figure out who can support who. There isn't a handy 
support list like in FE7, so I listed the possible supports of all the 
characters in order of appearance.

Q: What took you so long?
A: Because I touch myself at night.

Q: Is Marth in this game?
A: No.

Q: Is Roy in this game?
A: YES! ROY'S OUR BOY M I RITE?

Q: Where can I find the ROM?
A: I HAVE NO IDEA, YOU PIRATE SCUM. DON'T ASK. I'm sorry.

Q: What are the requirements for the Gaiden Chapters?
A: See below.

Chapter 8G     No day requirement. Lilina must be alive.
Chapter 12G    In 20 days.
Chapter 14G    In 25 days. Sophia must be alive.

Chapter 20BG   In 25 days. Recruit Yuuno. Thany, Thite, Zealot must be alive.
Chapter 21G    In 30 days. Fa, Miredy and Zeis must be alive.

Q: The game ended after Chapter 22, what gives?
A: To access the final chapter and thus get the best ending, all 7 Divine 
   Weapons and the Sword of Seals must be intact and Fa must be alive.

Q: Where are the secret shops?
A: There are two secret shops in total, one in Chapter 16 that sells 
   promotion items and Angelic Robes and the other in Chapter 21 selling 
   promotion items, stat boosting items and some magic tomes. The locations 
   are as follows: In C16, it's at the square where Zeis stands on. In C21, 
   it's at the lone Plain square in the mountain range in the east. Remember 
   to have the Member Card in your inventory.

Q: Where are the desert items located in Chapter 14?
A: I can't give you a map at the moment, because Word doesn't like ASCII for 
   no apparent reason. I'll just give you the coordinates for now.

- Silver Card: Northwest, near the top most bones.
- Talisman: West, left of your starting position.
- Speedwings: Southwest, in the corner.
- Boots: Center, just northeast of your starting position.
- Silence: Just southeast of your starting position, near the bones.
- Guiding Ring: At the entrance of the temple walls, only Sophia can find it.
- Silver Blade: South of Guiding Ring, north of the little plateau.
- Warp: Southeast, just south of the little plateau.

Q: When can I promote Roy?
A: Roy will get promoted at the end of Chapter 21. Not sooner, not later.

Q: I've been standing forever, why don't I get the support option?
A: See the Support List section to see if they can actually support each 
   other. If they can, it's probably because you've surpassed the amount of 
   support points that can be gained. It's limited each chapter.

Q: Where can I find arenas?
A: In Chapter 7, 11A, 13, 17A, 17B, 20B.

Q: What extras can I unlock?
A: You unlock trial map 1 and 2 by beating the game, trial map 3 if you've 
   gotten the real ending. Beating Hard Mode unlocks trial map 4 and 5.
   There's one character to unlock every time you beat the game from

   Murdock, Zephiel and Guinevere.

10. CONTACT INFORMATION                                                [CNTC]

I've made a list of things left to be done. If you know something that might

That's about it.

To help me improve my FAQ, you are always welcome to send me an e-mail. But 
there are rules which must be followed in order for me to take you seriously.

1. Topic should have at least the words Fire Emblem in it, preferably with 
FAQ behind it. I have my junk filter at high, so it's likely your e-mail will 
be neglected if you don't give it a striking topic.

2. Writing should be in English with normal spelling and grammar. With normal 
I mean no caps, overly difficult words or 1337 language. I won't condemn you 
for bad English, but it's not particularly helpful if I can't understand your 
intentions.

3. Constructive criticism, please. I will ignore all e-mail that say my FAQ 
sucks without a good explanation.

4. NO ASKING FOR HELP. I will not answer any e-mail asking for help. That's 
what this FAQ is for. If you have a specific question about this game, then 
please post it in the Fire Emblem: Fuuin no Tsurugi board here at GameFaqs. 
I'm there often to help people out.

5. Now this is very important. DO NOT ASK FOR ROMS. I do not play the ROM and 
even if I knew, I wouldn't support this kind of activity. You know who you 
are. To obtain a legit copy of the game, I would recommend play-asia.com.

My e-mail address is cww5555 <at> hotmail.com

Remember to follow the rules. If you happen to see this FAQ in an other web 
site than GameFaqs, then please report this to me. 

I may not be able to respond to you, because of other obligations I have. But 
I will try to answer you and update the FAQ as fast as possible.
