Also, can you put a post on how many references you can spot. I'm still waiting on someone to get the Name/Story Introduction reference.
You might be surprised how easy it is to find something when you already know where it is, and how hard it is to find that exact same something when you don't.
References in particular can be REALLY hard to find sometimes, because they rely on both the speaker and the listener knowing the source material roughly equally well.

for example lets say that you named a female child mage character Nina.
Now, if the only fire emblem game you've played is Blazing Sword, and that's the only source you're drawing from, you'd pretty quickly conclude it's a reference to Nino, a female child mage character from that game.
If you haven't however, then you're going to have a problem, because Nina is ALSO the spanish word for girl, and you can find references to such a girl's name all over the place across dozens of different stories in different settings and different connotations.
So in that case, the more well-read you are, the more likely you are to have trouble narrowing it down to that specific reference.
But if you never played Blazing sword, and don't know anything about Nino, then you have literally zero chance of getting the reference.

It's a TON easier to see an answer when you already know what the answer is.

Actually, the spanish word for girl is "ni˝a", which sounds quite differently. Other than that, I agree with what you're saying.

I haven't personally played any of the FE games before FE9, although I've read LParchive for most of the others. For the intro, I THINK it's whichever FE had Hector as a lord? I dunno, the plots were usually pretty similar to each other: Surprise attack by one nation, the 'bad guys', and the heir to the throne of the other nation barely escapes and then leads a glorious counter-assault with minimal setbacks etc.

Radiant Dawn had a memorable plot though. PoR was... unoriginal, but well implemented.

I am taking the week off GMing to relax and actually build this stuff. I repeat that this Xenologue came way early. So no worries.
Poke.

You need more time?

Jane's eyes open. In front of her seems to be this yellow blur surrounded by black.

Jane examines the yellow blur, while trying to remember how did she end in this situation. Try to remember more stuff (like the backstory)

Jane's memory seems to be a bit jumbled.


Being lead to Faroese across the desert sands.


Cast out from --- -- ----


Everand rescuing her from them.


Many people coming together as one.


Taking up the sword.


Old --- -- --- .



A closer look tells you that she appears to be transparent...? There are marks of green on her as well.


"Ah, you're awake. Good."

"Are you feeling alright, any pains?.."

Be honest and say you feel like trash. Ask where you are.

"Ah..." ?

"A moment"


A healing light sweeps over Jane.
HP Restored.

((Note: Since I didn't make Jane, I won't do any direct dialogue with her while in this mission. Sorry.))

Thank the yellow figure. Inquire further about this "Shafow Realm".
