Interlude: It's Byleth and Sylvain's birthday! *blows one of those horn things* I bought him flowers, because why not. The Battalion Guild's now open, so we're gonna buy Sylvain the Seiros Pegasus Co., and then go to choir practice and dinner with Felix agai— Wh-what do you mean I ship them? I told you, such baseless rumors are nothing more! Anyway, we cooked up another Two-t****** Pike while wondering whether we should be conserving these more carefully. Maybe. Maybe not. I think I did like three seminars this month.

Chapter 3, The Magred Ambush: Do a write-up for this map. Accidentally delete almost the entire thing due to copy-paste funny business on mobile. Summarize what you wrote:

f*** this map, but not too hard. Poison Strike Archers and Seal Strength bosses in a fog of war map aren't very fun, and neither is rewinding to keep Byls from getting attacked by invisible enemies. I probably had room for a Torch, but I didn't want to risk not having enough healing items, so Double Pen—I mean, Divine Pulse it is. A well-placed Gambit, followed by the boss leaving the thickets for some reason, wrapped up the first half of the map. Sadly, the brave souls led by Catherine all lost their lives on, like, turn 1, turn 2 at the latest. (Allied units die fast on Maddening, so far.) Catherine survived of course, and was actually somewhat helpful. (Until we reached the boss, because she doesn't attack him, even if he's in her attack range and everyone else is dead.)

It is I who has been Shrek'd:

(This time I waited until he'd used up his Gambits (they both missed thankfully) before attacking. Last time he hit me with one, which left me useless for a turn while he healed up the damage I'd been doing. I started whittling his health back down, but my lance broke, and without my battalion, my gauntlets weren't doing any damage (I think 1x4?). He still killed my battalion this time, leaving the gauntlets useless, but I had enough durability left on the lance to finish him off. I came this close to having to redo the map.)

Interlude: I forgot to write down what I did, so instead, can we just appreciate how big the men's tiddies are in this game? Sylvain's not even a particularly muscular guy.

Oh, he did reach B-rank with Felix, though. My, my, these two move fast.

Chapter 4, Assault at the Rite of Rebirth: Fun fact, if you enter the Death Knight's range, he does this:

https://i.imgtc.ws/l3nYFT1.jpg

I couldn't remember what the treasures were, so I yolo'd and picked the right side. Then I went north and realized even though I was dicking around a little I had time to get both, so I did. Then the enemies from the northeast corner that had been fighting me got bored and decided to chase Byls and Demi who were way, way back instead, so I had to go kill the boss. Like, half the enemies were still alive by the end, because the enemy Gambit spam on this map slows things down. That, and I was counting on learning Close Counter once my bow rank went up, but I forgot that D+ was after D, not C, so not having 1-2 meant I couldn't counter the mages most of the time. Oops.

Interlude: Apparently, telling the religious girl that she should hold a seance is the proper response. Why, IntSys? Why? Also, these tourneys sure are getting tough:

Auxiliary Battle, Clearing the Way: Our first and most likely our last non-forced, non-paralogue battle. The recommended level is, like, 5 or something, so not much happened here. Forgot to screenshot the clear screen, but oh well.

M-merci

I was gonna point out how it's tragic that the tiddy gets covered up when they promote past Brawler, but then I realized that leaving all your males in an Intermediate tier class for maximum tiddy would actually be a pretty interesting challenge run

Or you could go all Grappler for maximum thigh

Tracking this thread and Godspeed. Sylvain has been undisputed MVP in all of my playthroughs — seriously, why is he so good — and I look forward to seeing how this ends. Probably in insanity and an hour of save/reloads, but I believe in best boy’s ability to solo.
He's the best dark knight.

I got distracted playing Virtue's Last Reward and got stuck on a paralogue, but I was planning on posting more chapters today~

Ooh, I’m excited for the updates.

VLR is best enjoyed by binging it. ZTD is ... polarizing, to say the least. And I’m personally team “999 was perfect, VLR is just a bonus.”
