Fire Emblem on Forums: Heritage of the Chosen (OoC)

KHALDERAS
A continent splintered during the Age of Strife by the Dark God.

With the Dark God banished by the Six Chosen during the Divine War 288 years ago, the Age of Blood began, leading humanity's return to glory, strength, honor, and prosperity in a scarred yet healing world. From the ruins of Strife, Kingdoms of Blood emerged, parcels of lands granted by the Goddess herself to establish balance in Her Infinite Wisdom, six Emblems crafted to guide and protect the Chosen's descendants.
For as long as holy blood flows in the veins of monarchs, the Dark God shall remain banished.

Yet, as centuries pass, humanity learned that conquest cannot be avoided no matter the age. The only thing changing are the players, but not the game. Thus, wars between descendants of the Six Chosen shifted borders, allegiances and trust.
Wars that ensured the descendants of Fiorae, the Mamkute tribe, ultimatively disappeared from Wyrmpeak, nation of the Chosen Fiorae, in the Year 267, never to be seen again since then.

Both Dunland, nation of the Chosen Charos, and Westwind, nation of the Chosen Ghiran, claimed the lands of Wyrmpeak for their own, Dunland desiring its metal veins and the preservation of Mamkute culture, Westwind desiring the Mamkute Dragonstones that may still remain within Wyrmpeak. Negotiations went on for years yet only managed to stall the inevitable, and the War For Wyrmpeak stirred the continent in the Year 284.
After four gruesome years, the two nations meet for the final battle at Caranbough Hills. Whoever controls this landmark gains superior access to the entirety of Wyrmpeak. A battle overseen by the Kings themselves, King Alfalm of Dunland and King Talos of Westwind.

Only the Goddess knows that one Dunlandic Knight and his entourage are destined to change the course of history forevermore...



Welcome to Fire Emblem on Forums - Heritage of the Chosen!

The ruleset used for this game is the FEF Player's Handbook v2.3.2 and the addition of two mechanics that will be explained below.
Note that this game is intended to be beginner-friendly and thus will not plan to become more mechanically complex beyond that.
It is further recommended to be part of the Bay12 FEF Discord server. A link to the server can be found in the main FEF hub.

Storage

EDIT 2: I'm going to just instead keep this post for the application, and move away from the other post to technically remove it.

It is time for the very first application review.

TricMagic
Mechanical side: Checks out for the most part. For clarity's sake, I'd recommend rewording "Born in a World of Strife" and "We choose to fight" as "until the beginning of the next turn". The only thing I take issue with is "Blossom Dance". Make it a flat -3 DR and it'll be fine.
Fluff side: Checks out.

Chevaleresse
Mechanical side: "Murder the Dawn" is a bit too broad. I'd like you to specify for Pegasus Rider or Wyvern Rider. The rest checks out.
Fluff side: Bit short, but perfectly servicable. Checks out.

cronos5010
Mechanical side: I take issue with "Doppelsöldner" as it's basically always active whenever it is relevant for a melee fighter. Change it to require at least two adjacent enemies, to a defensive bonus, or something else entirely. The rest checks out.
Fluff side: Checks out.

Aurorix
Mechanical side: "Joker’s Twist of Fate" is... weird to judge. It will effectively be always or almost always active against grunts, and rarely against major characters. I will ponder about it until next week's review. The rest checks out.
Fluff side: Quirky. Interesting. Checks out.

rustytengo
Mechanical side: Wonky wording aside, everything checks out.
Fluff side: Looking forward to the bio.

IamanElfCollaborator
Mechanical side: Checks out.
Fluff side: Checks out.

MusicMagician
Mechanical side: I count 340 total Growth when it should be 335. Please adjust that. The rest checks out (even if clarifying where you put in your bonus stat points would be nice, but it's not necessary).
Fluff side: Overall like it, would like to see how Oriana came to join Dunas' entourage, but aside from that important detail, checks out.

SOLDIER First
Mechanical side: I count 330 total Growth when it should be 335. Please adjust that. "To the Letter" has a condition that always applies, so I ask you to rework that. The rest checks out.
Fluff side: Looking forward to the bio.

[REDACTED]

I didn't intend to have to create a second message to edit posts actually, so i removed this one. Ouch.
That being said, I have put sweat into effort for making a character here and writing bio and editing mug portraits.
Refer to my earlier post for my application. I find all of your applications that cute actually.

The second evaluation is now happening. Those who were already fine last time will have their evaluation skipped unless requested for the next and final time in case they make major changes.

TricMagic
Stuff has been adjusted as recommended. Looks good.

Chevaleresse
Stuff has been adjusted as recommended. Bio still a bit short, but other than that, looks good.

cronos5010
Doppelsöldner fixed. Looks good.

Aurorix
I have pondered about it and ultimatively decided against it. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I'm asking you to revise it.

MusicMagician
Mechanical stuff fixed, updated bio is fine. Looks good.

SOLDIER First
Growth fixed, bio approved. Looks good.

GreenKnight
Mechanical side: Overall checks out. I actually would allow Momentum to be triggered on moving more than half your MOV since +15 Hit is average. If you reduce it to +10 Evasion, I'll also allow Familiar Lands to be triggered on Hills.
Fluff side: Checks out, if a bit short.

Sora
Mechanical side: I count 330 total Growth when it should be 335. Please adjust that. For Danse Macabre and Lambs to the Slaughter, make it "until the end of the turn", as a turn in FEF is what other games would call a full round, and I don't necessarily want Personal Skills to linger. For Bound by Blood, it suffices to say "until the end of the next Player phase". The rest checks out.
Fluff side: Checks out.

Third and last evaluation. As per last week, those who were fine at least once get skipped.

Aurorix
Fifth Ace is accepted. Looks good.

GreenKnight
Asked me to review the reworked bio. Looks good.

Sora
Growth fixed, abilities adjusted. Looks good.
