I seem to recall being able to move after you attack, and if you are able to do that in later games, I am definitely missing that right now. But it's literally the first game in the series so I'm willing to forgive it

That was just something mounted units could do in PoR and RD. They make small changes like that between games sometimes.

I started freaking out because I was using my White Mage to heal 2 HP wounds so he could level up , then I realized his staff was about to break. But luckily after I finished the chapter, they started letting me freely go to the armory. Dodged a bullet there

It's now in the point of the game where I have to select the units to go into battle. I'm taking everyone except two axe guys and the Archer kid

Already benching people

Yeah, there's a lot of filler in this game.

That's another reason the "killing characters for bonus chapters" isn't really that bad, you have TONS of people to throw away.

haha yeah you get almost no staves in the first maybe 3 or 4 chapters of the game which makes h3, h4, and h5 difficulty PARTICULARLY brutal, but things get a lot more manageable after that. being able to buy items, forge weapons, and change character classes freely gives you a ton of options for dealing with the difficulty.

you can even mitigate the RNG of growths to some extent. if you get outright BAD gains you might be stuck needing to reset, but if you get gains in areas you might not have wanted, it's sometimes possible to fix this issue by simply changing the class of specific characters and their role within the group.

certain classes also have optimal growth rates for certain stats, too, so there's also an element of strategy to using class change as a way to get better growths in farmable chapters before switching to permanent classes with better suited abilities for difficult chapters. the fact that you don't pay anything or need to use any items to change between classes within your current group helps this a lot.

(and if all of that sounds confusing or overwhelming just feel good in knowing that you can easily beat the game on normal or even h1-h3 difficulty without ever bothering with the stuff I mentioned above)

Yeah, the earlier games had arenas, where you could spend money to fight someone and get as much exp and money as you wanted. But be warned - if someone dies in the arena, they die for real.

Characters are bland and unmemorable. So's the story though at least that's pretty normal for FE.

I dunno, I think the story's pretty decent in Shadow Dragon. Or at least the writing is.

The side characters are one-note (sometimes literally one-line), but there probably about the same number of interesting main characters/main villains as most of the rest of the series. They're just surrounded by a ton of generic trash.
Congrats to BKSheikah, who knows more about years than anyone else.
