Hi guys, I just started playing FE:3H yesterday. I naturally chose classic mode at startup because I wanted a better challenge. I got a few calendar months into the game (3-4 hours) and made the mistake of taking my students into an optional battle in which our forces were split into two groups and separated by mountains. At the end of the battle I only had three characters remaining (Byleth, Head of Class and one additional).
So this wouldn’t be a huge deal if I could recruit new students to my house but apparently my level is insufficient to recruit new students at this time. So what am I supposed to do? I’ll probably lose one of my mains and have to restart without proper support! Why did they make it so hard to recruit early in the game? What would you do?

I'd have restarted the map before I almost got my entire team wiped.

I'd have some sympathy, but since Jeralt and Sothis both make a big deal about how bad it'd be if one of the students got seriously injured I don't know what to say to you.
Any contact with the chamber floor will result in an 'unsatisfactory' mark on your official testing record followed by death. Good luck!

Reset the map.
Or, if dedicated to continue the classic run, fight until I get an actual game over, take it for what it is and reset the run.

How do you reset the map? So there’s basically no way to recruit any new students at this point in the game?

You soft reset the game and load your save?

Are you new to video games or something?

No just new to fire emblem. I only kept one save file and I think I already erased over any potential load point that would reverse it. So I guess I’m screwed

Restart with a fresh file and make damn sure I select Casual Mode this time.

Raise their support to B (certain characters cap at C pre-timeskip, I think Caspar, Ferdinand, and Leonie's is locked until Ch. 10 or so) by inviting them to meals/choir, buying them gifts, and giving them lost items:

Then either wait for them to ask to join your house (they'll do it randomly during the week) or raise their preferred skills to usually around D or so and directly ask them to join.

To be fair, other FE games are actually designed more with permdeath in mind, by constantly giving you more characters through out the game. 3H gives you very few characters and recruiting characters from other houses is a lot harder to do, making it a lot worse to let characters die than in past games.
ALttP is a great game.
