Just to let you guys know, I haven't been updating this log or the Thales polls because I'm currently on a trip right now. I was going to say something earlier but I didn't feel like I wanted to post multiple bumps so this thread wouldn't get archived. The next update will most likely be on Thursday.

After 5000 years, I awaken once more.

The Remire Calamity - *Title teleports away*

As you know, Jeralt has decided to take Byleth to a trip to Remire village, only to find that people are definitely not being chill. In order to make the town chill again, Byleth must rescue the chill people while defeating the angry people.

https://i.imgtc.ws/jjaogWp.jpg
https://i.imgtc.ws/fE8EaXM.jpg
(Dimitri is not chill, which is why he is not participating)

Oh, and Tomas is here too.
https://i.imgtc.ws/jLYjHJY.jpg

Byleth is pretty strong due to the『Heavy Duscur Warriors』, making him virtually immortal against the rampaging villagers, and Warlock Mercedes can one shot rampagers with thunder (including the extra attack from the magic staff) while also healing the villagers quite well. Jeralt takes one damage from the villagers so this isn't much of an escort mission.

Ultimately, you can just send Byleth to clear a side (I personally chose the left side), and use Mercedes to handle the other side. Do note that if you're like me, you probably are not going to save every last one of them, but I'm sure it's theoretically possible.

After a while, Tomas decides to takes off his cosplay and goes "Muahaha I'm actually a bad guy, let me tell you something bad I did for no reason", and now the main objective is to defeat Solon. Not too hard given Solon's grand total of 13 Prt and 6 AS. Still, there are chests to be gotten, so there's no point in rushing, especially when we can fight the Death Knight.

https://i.imgtc.ws/uPwu0Fd.jpg

Eventually you'll get to the Death Knight, who does not have special dialogue with Mercedes in this map. (Sad.) Mercedes is still going to get the kill though.

https://i.imgtc.ws/DhsjSbs.jpg
https://i.imgtc.ws/f9FBC8n.jpg
https://i.imgtc.ws/X453GjT.jpg
(I can't wait until this Edgelord is actually playable)

Solon is the only main enemy left, so it's time. Unfortuntately he's blocking the way to the chest and he does a good deal of damage (35) to Byleth, so we'll have to go the long way. Oh, it seems like Jeralt and Solon are fighting, but as it turns out, they both are unable to kill each other. I guess they are real gentlemen who don't want me to end up restarting the map in order to get both chests.

After like eight turns of Byleth walking around to get the chest, Mercedes can finally finish off Solon. Solon just teleports away though (not sure why he didn't do that earlier to protect his identity but ok).

https://i.imgtc.ws/Ke64NCy.jpg

And just like that the map is over.

https://i.imgtc.ws/5V5rUw4.jpg
https://i.imgtc.ws/maVhtcc.jpg

Afterwards Jeralt starts putting up death flags and we learn a bit of poor Dimitri's past.

https://i.imgtc.ws/sueRvYp.jpg
https://i.imgtc.ws/sLzsaKG.jpg

Protip: Dimitri is never chill.

Bump so this doesn't get archived. I would say the next part will come tomorrow but it appears that I don't have the greatest track record.

So I'll say that it comes the day after tomorrow so my always-wrongness will make it come tomorrow

Rooting for you!

After one million years of procrastination, this user has finally awakened me!
Also, did I mention that recently, 50% of the time my Z, Q, !, and A keys don't work? I should probably fix that soon because it's seriously annoying.

Interlude - Chapter 9 - The Cause of Sorrow.
The Cause of Sorrow? What a perfectly normal name that isn’t foreshadowing at all

https://i.imgtc.ws/HUt9nHv.jpg

In any case, this is the month of the White Heron Cup, but before we get to the very dramatic choice of who our representative for Smash will be, we recruited a few people.

The first is Catherine, who decided to come with us due to Byleth’s good looks.

https://i.imgtc.ws/H4Eq3K8.jpg
https://i.imgtc.ws/n8EVbov.jpg

The second is Shamir, who decided to come because why not.

https://i.imgtc.ws/K1wt3CZ.jpg

The third is Caspar, who is currently angry because he’s going to be a benchwarmer.

https://i.imgtc.ws/2woRIF1.jpg

Now, with that out of the way, we move on to the representative. Just who will it be? Well, rather than drawing this out, I’ll go ahead and spoil it right now!

https://i.imgtc.ws/aiIRD5W.jpg
Who could’ve seen this coming!?

https://i.imgtc.ws/lUiguUa.jpg
(“Professor, I have finally mastered the art of dabbing”)

After a bit of special training, she then decides to go win some black magic tournaments to pass the time before the White Heron Cup.

And speaking of that competition…

Me irl regarding this run

The judges are Alois himself, the divine songstress, and the glamorous assassin. And our opponents are…

https://i.imgtc.ws/Hbbl4Nx.jpg

Dorothea and Hilda. Tough competition, but Mercedes is a natural. But is that enough for victory? Let’s look at the votes!

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

Victory goes to Mercedes! As a reward, she has proven that she can dance good enough to become a dancer. Unfortunately though, this moment can not last forever, and it’s time to do some paralogues.

But before we do, it’s Dimitri’s Birthday!

Tales of The Red Canyon - Byleth tries to solo but his students won’t let him.

https://i.imgtc.ws/YYI3gi9.jpg
https://i.imgtc.ws/LNfmWGG.jpg

Byleth decides to go on to do a solo run, but Dimitri and Dedue know that is supposed to be a duo run, and they kindly brought Mercedes to the Red Canyon as well, and just in time too because Byleth is currently surrounded by monsters.

Unfortunately, Dimitri decides to stay, which means he is now a very tasty snack to the many monsters that surround us. Thankfully that phase hasn’t come yet and Byleth only needs to take out two wolves, and Byleth, while abusing his Mov, the heal tile, healing focus, and Bow, can actually defeat them while Mercedes, wielding Thrysus, takes out the guardian wolf.

https://i.imgtc.ws/MJQTaJL.jpg
(*Blocks your path*)

Before we take out the last wolf, we move Mercedes and Dimitri to the west (and open the chest). Why not the North you ask? Well, as you know, that’s because there are two different spawns for reinforcement birbs, one that summons 2 birds and one wolf in the west, and one that spawns three birds in the north. It’s far easier imo to aggro the three northern birds and keep Mercedes and Dimitri safe than to try the other spawn. Besides, Byleth has 27 Prt due to the『Heavy Duscur Warriors』. Coincidentally, that’s the same amount of attack that the birds have.

In order to trigger the second spawn, you also need Byleth to go to the west stairs while keeping one of the wolves alive. This angers the Wild Demonic Beast, who sends the three birds from the North.

https://i.imgtc.ws/s2lbLks.jpg

From there, you just need to use Byleth’s sprinting to keep them all in the center, and although Byleth can’t one round them here (or he could have if I actually cooked speed dishes this month… but I’m too lazy to go fishing for bullheads), healing focus + 27 Prt + Mercedes’ Physic means Byleth is immortal.

Of course, it is important to mention that one Birb will ignore Byleth and attack Mercedes and Dimitri, but Mercedes should be able to handle the birb with a gambit or two. Oh, and when you defeat the wave of birds, the other two birds and the wolf join in, so be prepared for that.

Eventually, you’ll meet the demonic beast himself, and he likes poison, but he’s slow (14 AS), so as long as you bring some antitoxin, you’ll be fine. Or you could just rely on Mercedes’ restore. Either way, he’s going down.

https://i.imgtc.ws/7Zu8c3n.jpg
https://i.imgtc.ws/ge9lMJ4.jpg
(Miklan is that you?)

https://i.imgtc.ws/6PT6hIk.jpg

Anyways, we go home after this battle, and Sothis is satisfied.

https://i.imgtc.ws/9qECxPn.jpg
(I mean… Byleth could have actually soloed this map tbh)

Now, it’s time to go ahead and take on the trials lying before us. But before we get to our next battle...

I'd be curious as to how you will do chapter 9, probably one of the hardest maps pretimeskip for a solo. I'm kinda stuck on it because daddy Jeralt is being stupid and I have no idea what would be the best weapons to equip. Mercedes is probs going to make the job easier, but it won't be an easy chapter.
Lysithea best mage.

look for McLahey's Sylvain solo playthrough thread, it has some pointers for how he cleared chapter 9

So I ended up doing it but I had to let claude die (playing on casual since it's my first solo). I could probably do some stuff differently, but the whole mess was rng heavy and I needed to crit a lot. One thing that could have worked was if I 2 turned the 2 first beasts with crits.

He did it as a warlock I think and if I remember he had fairly decent mag, while I don't/don't have the proefficiences. I might try to re-do the map at some point.
Lysithea best mage.
