Part 44: chapter 20 - Mission

*
Our very first order of business before we head come the hit is to offer Mist a tiny treat.

You are watching: Fire emblem path of radiance chapter 20

*
Ooooh yes.You"ll note that many skills we"ve watched (and numerous we haven"t yet) room really no very great at describing your activation circumstances. Normally they"ll say "can do this thing" or "under particular circumstances, walk this thing", or something equally unhelpful. The worst part is, "certain circumstances" argues that the skill deserve to be manipulated (like, say, Wrath, which always activates under specific circumstances). Sadly, however, sol is strictly luck-based. Well, strictly, it"s based. Speak of which...
*
I"m swim in goddamn secret Books and also I have the right to think of lot sillier points to perform than do Mist a tad an ext godly by permitting her to activate solar in one much more out of every hundred encounters.
*
Now that we"ve uncovered all the money, these price tags look at a tad much less intimidating. We"re quiet not completely spoiling ourselves however - that"ll wait until we acquire Silver Forges, and those will hurt also our ultrafat wallet - but this is +5 Mt and also +25 hit, because that a price of around 700%.
*
Green will certainly coordinate v either Oscar or Jill (she"s got her green wyvern, see?). I think the name might fit both, too. Don"t you?Finally, part BEXP.
*
If we"re acquisition Mordecai into this fight, he"s gonna want at the very least one BEXP level. He"s actually among the worse laguz we"ve gained - however he"ll quiet do.
*
Anyway. Here"s our map. We"ll desire to be mostly heading southeast and also charging increase the hill, yet we"ll desire a couple of guys to head northeast come hit up that house and handle the wyvern riders charging down the hillside.We"re in reality on a time limit, yet that border happens to be twenty turns. Ns wouldn"t worry too much around that.
*
There space a good few assholes in the way, too. Here"s a laguzslayer guy, for example.
*
And here"s one more one. He"s donate up by a Killer Bow toting paladin (who additionally has a stole Sword).
*
You can nab a Physic from this guy if you"ve acquired a thief with you (I didn"t consider it worth forcing Volke come come along, though).
*
These 2 knights here have capped defence (for an initial tier, quiet (that"s 20)).
*
Here"s the obligatory Siege Tome Asshole. There"s sages behind him, too, one of whom is rocking Bolganone, a rather destructive fire spell.And finally...
*
There"s Shiharam. He"s quite powerful, pretty beefy (slow though), and of food he"s equipped through a ranged weapon (the the strongest throwing axe) and also the complete Guard, so us can"t cheese him with Rolf or Soren.
*
Oh, and he"s gained Stun, too, as a pretty fuck-you because that anyone who wants to melee that (as you deserve to imagine, the cancels counterattacks and also such).
*
Alright. Let"s roll.
*
*
space you every right? you look quite pale. Um, general Ike... To it is in honest, I... Ns know. The foe general is your father, isn"t he?
*
ns see. If you"re having 2nd thoughts, it"s not too late. Perform you want me to move you out through someone else? No... I"ll be fine. In ~ least, ns think ns will. You don"t need to be in the vanguard. Simply keep the in mind. Give thanks to you...
*
Oh, goody. Quite to watch a opportunity of ending this peacefully a bit much less violently.
*
As with any kind of sound strategy, the little archer leads the charge. That course, crits are involved.
*
Right behind the small archer is the frail healer girl.
*
It"s all right, though.
*
She deserve to take treatment of herself.
*
*
Beeeautiful.
*
Astrid proceeds the rampage.
*
Calill has four less speed than Soren, however four an ext strength. Under normal circumstances, Soren will easily outpace her. However, once it pertains to heavy tomes, like siege tomes...
*
Calill is virtually entirely unencumbered.
*
Being maybe to double at this variety is just totally great.
*
Meanwhile, let"s obtain our north offensive started.
*
Oh, come on, Nephenee, really?
*
Mia"s going to help, too.
*
The others every move right into position to strike next turn, and Ike cleans the end the last neighborhood problem.
*
Spectacularly.
*
The north crew and also Jill space on wyvern duty. Anyone else is going to push up the hill. This has actually been rotate one.
*
*
until the Crimean army has to be defeated. Sir! If us wait that long, all of the neighboring farmland will certainly be drowned! The locals are currently quite upset. They may not abide this lot further. ... General!
*
If you"ve obtained the time to it is in bellyaching, take your target out to the battlefield and kill part Crimean soldiers. Captain Haar! carry out you support this action? This is inhumane! stays will be ruined! Daein citizens will die! also if we insurance claim that it"s crucial in bespeak to attain victory... This is as well much! This is Daein"s way. Room you prepared to disobey the king and be put to the fatality for your troubles? ns would quite die than kill innocent Daein civilians. If you"re executed as a traitor come the throne, your parents and siblings will also pay. Space you tho prepared? ... Currently do you recognize what I"m trying to tell you? Go. Fight bravely. ... Y-yes, sir!
*
very first hunting and executing the laguz... And now flooding the soil these civilization call home? general Shiharam... If someone hears girlfriend use the word laguz in this country, you"ll be branded a traitor. Hmm... You"re appropriate as always. To live in this land, whereby laguz prejudice is therefore virulent, we"ve had to seal away every little thing we know and teach our kids to hate all sub-humans. All that simply to survive here. It"s Ashnard"s error this country has come to be what the is today. Ah, what a damaging miscalculation we made... Also so, I... Ns hated the idea that furthering the corruption that the royal senate. Ns will continue to assistance your reasons for leave Begnion.
*
i did... Give her warning. Over all else, ns would prefer to protect against meeting my daughter in combat.
*
Everything"s. Going. To. Be. Fine. Knowing her temperament, talking through you would only rise both of her sorrows. I have but one donate to questioning of you. Say it, and also it will certainly be done. Do not fight today. What? just one side have the right to win a battle. If we are beat in the end, I desire you to treatment for the survivors and their families. ... Yes, sir... Command Shiharam. Commander... It"s been many a long year since you last referred to as me that. May the fortunes of battle be through you.
*
*
Well then.
*
Some asshole monk ruins every one of Nephenee"s tough work. Why couldn"t friend crit him, Nephenee?!
*
No. Denied. One walk not just "hit" Mist.
*
You human being just don"t gain it, do you?
*
No, yet seriously though. Wyvern riders are tough as a rule, and Mist isn"t that strong.
*
Oh, look. Jill"s famous.
*
Demoralizing, ho! A huge chunk of his HP disappears.
*
This ends about how you"d expect.
*
Goddamnit Nephenee. You"re zero because that four!
*
Finally.
*
Asshole.It"s our turn, and I"m annoyed. Let"s have actually Mist take turn off the limiters because that a spell.
*
Sweet.Mist is uniquely inserted to usage the Sonic sword effectively. Normally, its draft to be something that a niche weapon; many sword users have low magic (which the Sonic Sword"s damage runs off) but most enemies have much less resistance 보다 defence, for this reason it"ll be effective versus the couple of enemies with really high defence however really low resistance (eg, knights/generals). However, as a mage-who-picks-up-swords, Mist just overpowers the whole controversy with really high numbers, gaining herself a quite high-Mt weapon that runs turn off her highest stat that works best against the type of opponents she"d commonly be worst against. The just real problem is acquiring her to B-rank in swords therefore she have the right to use the damn thing.
*
Rolf cleans up the wyvern rider.
*
Let"s send up some help. Calill neatly disposes of one archer native melee selection (thank you, mage versatility).While this is going on, Soren move in too, and Nephenee and Jill charge.
*
Jill picks up a quite level from it all.
*
Astrid division out the Greil axe because that the first time.
*
Alright, surely-
*
*
Lovely. Quite to watch Rolf hasn"t stolen every the crits.
*
I worry about Mia and all those other wyvern riders, however. Fortunately, I"ve acquired a plan, although it"s messier than the sort of plan I like.So ends revolve two.
*
This is good.
*
This is simply laughable.
*
This is scary - but, would you believe, all part of the plan.
*
Let"s hear it because that checking the number first. I concern that this guy could otherwise have actually gone because that Mia.
*
Silly enemy. Effective damages isn"t going come help versus Astrid.
*
This is the last one. Looks favor the plan worked!
*
Sadly, the had enough defence and HP to survive this crit, but that won"t help him much next turn.
*
And currently for a somewhat much less scary situation.
*
Don"t need Aether or crits or nuthin".
*
And again!
*
Not, strictly speaking, necessary, but...
*
It"s quite to get the HP back.
*
This is additionally nice. Correctly it is.
*
Two wyvern riders reinforce from the southeast. Meh.
*
Let"s clean up end here.
*
Soren.jpg
*
And two...
*
*
And you"re outta there. Just thing left to do is have actually Astrid inspect in top top the house.
*
*
permit me tell girlfriend something! You deserve to ransack my residence all girlfriend want, but you"ll find nothing of value here. Every our young men have been dragged off to war, and also all that"s left space women and also children. If it"s yellow you"re after, take the scroll ~ above the floor there. Friend may be able to sell it. It"s just something i picked up, so ns don"t recognize if that has any type of value. However take the anyway, girlfriend dirty thief!
*
Well then. You could recall the Smite allows you to support a unit two spaces instead of one. Handy, but... Really?
*
Oh, OK, just once more.
*
Allow me to show a point. Here"s the most damages Ike can muster versus this Paladin.
*
Mist is same to it. Just think on the for a second.
*
*
*
To be fair, Ike deserve to deal an ext damage to most mages. Of course, to additionally be fair, Mist can one-round most of castle too.
*
This is basically simply money. Remember, Rhys is the just unit in the entire game who have the right to use irradiate magic.
*
Turn over.
*
A mage and an archer current some piffling distraction.
*
Then this idiot.
*
He is handle with.
*
And another. This one actually deals some respectable damage.
*
And survives.
*
Some much more wyvern riders emerge from the north...
*
...and a mage and also sage decide to come the end of the other residence down here. K then.
*
Rolf doesn"t need any type of of his sophisticated bows to ruin enemy archers. For part reason, this one drops a Provoke scroll. That could be handy.
*
We send Ike to overkill this wyvern rider.
*
Ike obliges.
*
*
*
God i love Ike"s crits.
*
Mist helps.
*
Looks favor we"re no done down here just yet.
*
I"m OK v this.
*
Jill breaks out one OHKO because that the services of avoiding a counterattack.
*
See? ns told you environment-friendly would work.
*
Soren hits D-rank in staves when healing that beating Reyson took. This is great, since now he"s only ten Mends away from gift able to Physic.
*
This is all looking a bit less threatening, now, isn"t it? end of rotate four.
*
Like annoying gnats, the wyvern riders come.
*
And the looks prefer the Blizzard asshole"s noticed us, too, for every the distinction that makes.
*
The staying knight has a go at Mist.
*
Mist doesn"t prefer that.
*
Admittedly she can"t quite kill him, however come on. This is a max-defence knight. This is pretty damn respectable.
*
Oh, and also now he"s obtained a buddy.
*
Mordecai and also Reyson transition at this point.
*
Right. Time come clean up down below once and also for all.
*
Come on, Mia...
*
-GODDAMNIT.
*
No one seems completely sure what identify which foe has this conversation with Jill, but there friend go. I"m sorry... I"ve favored the route that"s ideal for me. Pah! You would certainly betray your own father? ... You... Traitor! ... Mine lady Jill... No... Why walk this have to be...
*
Yes yes yes, heartbreaking. Relocating on.
*
Mordecai ain"t the fastest, but neither is this guy.There"s still one left, though, and also I worry around Mia...
*
*
*
Fortunately, Mist has sufficient magic to have the ability to Physic native halfway across the map.
*
One much more house.
*
gain out! obtain out now! There"s nothing in this shack that would certainly make you happy!
*
... Oh, so friend won"t leaving till you gain something, is the it? Here, take this old staff! currently hit the road! You"ve no should steal anything else from us! Or will you take it my life, together well?! In the last skirmish... Mine boy, my only son... Friend stole his life, curse you! i hope you"re satisfied!
*
Huh. Rescue is a fairly nifty though incredibly situational staff that will certainly teleport a unit in ~ squares of the caster to a square adjacent to the caster. I"m certain there"s some usage for this what - ns never had actually much use for it, however.
*
Rolf can"t quite muster up the damages to resolve the brand-new knight, and for as soon as his legendary crit-stealing abilities have failed him. Following turn, then.
*
Ike casually deletes the knight Mist couldn"t kill, and we end another turn.
*
The house-knight fully ignores Rolf, but Blizzard Asshole doesn"t.
*
Thank god for Physic, right?
*
Oh come on.
*
Don"t be ridiculous.(thanks because that the HP!)
*
The critical wyvern rider falls to Jill.
*
Oh, currently you carry the crits. Right.
*
I"ll take it it.
*
You space an annoyance. Gain fucked.
*
That is fairly a lot of defence.
*
It"s the finish of revolve six, and we"re gearing up because that the finish.
*
One an ext knight increase from the southeast home and... Nothing rather happens. Right.
*
Well, let"s use the diplomacy, then, shall we?
*
Jill... Is the you? Why... Why room you law this disastrous thing? You have to close the floodgates now! The areas will it is in lost, yet there may be time to save the homes.
*
If you great to stop the water, you should defeat your father. That is... The... Just way... What is it? There needs to be a reason! I know that an act choose this cannot be what friend desire. ... Jill, you need to leave. Please! If friend can"t execute that, climate slay me!
*
hey hey HEY HEY NO THAT"S NOT just how THIS IS SUPPOSED- What did friend say? not as a soldier the Daein, but as among your soldiers. I will fight.
*
for the first time, I had the ability to think around what ns fight for. Until that moment, I only did together I to be ordered... That was every for fame and glory. Currently I lastly understand. Ns fight because that those ns wish to protect. Father, I desire to fight because that you.
*
I... Jill Fizzart, hereby return myself come the command of basic Shiharam. What room your orders, sir?
*
Fuck. She even took her goddamn equipment! The shy brand-new lance! The fucking full Guard!If Jill has actually an A-support with Mist, or a B-support with Lethe, she will certainly be sufficiently invest to retain she senses and also not defect to the side that doesn"t have actually Ike, yet we don"t have any type of of that stuff.So.*reload*
*
Let"s simply do some consistent murdering.We"re going to require to carry our best versus Shiharam...
*
Hmm... No. More.
*
Damn his complete Guard! More!
*
It"s not enough! We"re walking to have to pull out all the stops.
*
Give "em hell, Mist.
*
Oh, don"t worry.
*
*
Tomahawks hurt. In theory.Now, who to placed the boot in... Oh! Perfect!
*
Starting to regret not going through "FUCK you DAD" for the lance.
*
Father... I... You won"t charge? Then i will lug the fight to you!
*
Yep. Regretting it.
*
Slightly.
*
More slightly now.
*
All that"s left is come clean up.
*
Calill can"t quite regulate this one on she own...
*
*
Although she"s managing the defense part well enough.
*
Ike finishes the job for an agree level.
*
Finally, us arrive on the seventh turn. Not bad!
*
*
Soren, what"s the damage to the bordering area?
*
ns see...
*
*
You want to help the world of our enemy? that is time and also energy we cannot afford. Soren. Take a section of our supplies and distribute it among the locals. What? are you serious? Our enemy is the Daein army. We"ve no quarrel through these people.
*
ns don"t recognize what it will certainly accomplish, Soren. But, relocating on without lifting a finger is something ns cannot do.
*
*
*

*
*
... If you want revenge ~ above me for your father, i understand. You have... That right. ... Once you"ve had some time come think points through, allow me know what you will certainly do. I"d favor to have actually you stay with us, but... It"s really up to you. That"s all I had to say.
*
---
*
Captain Haar... What space we an alleged to execute now? general Shiharam is dead, and also our homes are gone. What space we to execute with our families? What carry out you desire to do? We"ve lost any kind of right we had actually to continue to be here. So that leaves Begnion or Crimea... General Shiharam to be slain by Crimea... Joining through them now is not... It"s no possible. Then all you can do is return to Begnion. I doubt you"ll get a hero"s welcome, but... I"ve an old girlfriend in the pegasus knights. Shall I call her? Sniff... Ah, gods. Eighteen long years... What does any type of of it mean now? Don"t speak that! No matter what, I"m proud to have actually served under basic Shiharam.
*

*
*
*
ns knew that foreign cur to be useless... It looks favor the decisive fight will be fought near the capital. Preparations space complete, general Petrine. In stimulate to ease command because that you, sir Bryan will certainly serve as your deputy. Regarding strategy, it would certainly be most basic if you spoke through him directly-- sorry to tell girlfriend this, Ena, but I"m not the one who"ll be directing our pressures in the capital. Will certainly it be the black Knight then? Hmm... The plans must be changed slightly. I"ll pick someone rather to act as deputy...
*
Me? ns am to take it command... The the army? That"s right. You"re relocating up in the world, basic Ena. I... It"s too lot for me... I should confirm this with the king... Ha! What a rare sight this is. I"ve never ever seen girlfriend so flustered! Listen, if you great to fulfill with His Majesty, friend must fulfill your duties. He"s ordered that there it is in no interactions until that time. ...
*
Well, if that isn"t the huge Black Knight! It"s been such a lengthy time. You"re constantly so really busy, aren"t you? right here one day, there the next... Your secret maneuvers are-- They room proof the the to trust His Majesty has actually placed in me. Ena, go to the eastern gate. You have a visitor. Very well...
*
It appears so. That insists that he provide it directly over come Ena, though. Hmph! As lengthy as it is ours, it renders no difference. As soon as Ena returns, you will certainly be the one to take it straight to the king.
*
i don"t should be called that! much more importantly, what will certainly you carry out now? Me? ns will...---(yes, it cut out mid conversation.)
*
where is Lehran"s Medallion? right here. Take it it, please. It feels for this reason heavy... And it"s not all the wrapping, either. Might this be the chaotic energy... That an angry god? So, you deserve to now go back to King Ashnard"s side, have the right to you not? No. Not yet. What carry out you mean? I"ve been entrusted through the defense of the capital. I... Must confront the Crimean army. No! thank you. You"ve done so lot for me...

*
There"s no require for girlfriend to monitor Daein"s orders any kind of longer. And you? execute you median to die? No... I cannot retreat. Even if I need to slaughter the entire Crimean army... Ns will return to him... Yet he thinks nothing that you... That matters not. The only place I belong is in ~ his side. I will most most likely never watch you again... I will certainly pray for your eternal happiness.

*
*
Oh. You. Asshole.---
*
In less asshole-related news, we"ve solidly earn ourselves a nice bit of revolve bonus. The cutoff is ten turns, which we"re well inside.---

Soren trends quick - his speed expansion can surprise you - but is frequently held ago by his abysmal strength, like to use forged - and lighter - tomes to protect against being slowed by more heavier tomes. When effective, this hampers his capacity to get weapon ranks and gain accessibility to better tomes, even once he"s gained the stats. Not so with Calill, however. She starts off with enough ranks - and enough strength - come effortlessly wield all yet the most heavy tomes, with only the an extremely heaviest the tomes maybe to existing a difficulty to her. With a little bit of an excellent fortune - and perhaps a Speedwing - she have the right to close the rate gap between herself and also Soren, and also still cave on to the hefty - and effective - tomes she loves. Also a lightly blessed Calill deserve to be a formidable unit. As a bonus, she"s acquired the Nihil ability - which level the play field versus enemies with an abilities (so, bosses).Alas, Calill does have one major drawback. For every her purported brains, she made decision to train herself to usage knives rather than staves. This means she lacks Soren"s heal utility, and also for what? 8 strength is wonderful as soon as you"re hold books, but most enemies have far greater defence than that. And also knives, lest we forget, room piddly tiny weapons that have the right to barely dent weak enemies. What the hell were you thinking, lady?---Next time: Ena gets serious.
