Introduction



Welcome to Fire Emblem: Awakening. Fire Emblem is a long, storied franchise of Strategy RPGs based around random stat growths, decaying weapons, and resetting the game every time a character dies. As the 13th iteration of the series, there are lots of old and brand new mechanics along with the story itself that I will show in this LP.

How will this LP work?

I will go through the main storyline, sprinkle in some DLC missions to show off every now and then along with every side quest. Mechanics will be explained progressively through the LP as Awakening is to many their very first Fire Emblem game (So sit tight, FE Vets).

Is there audience participation?

Yes! After the first few mandatory chapters, I will let the thread vote for party members to bring along for the mission (story, DLC, sidequest) along with votes on class changes, promotions, and marriages.

Marriages?

Awakening brings back an old mechanic from FE 4: Geneology of the Holy War when two characters reach the highest support, they will produce a child unit to fight alongside them (This will be explained in the story).

Spoiler warnings

You can discuss certain things in the future, but please keep talks about marriages in the Fire Emblem: Awakening megathread. The people there will gladly help your questions on this topic until this LP gets there.

Make sure you spoiler tag anything that hasn't been shown yet here, and please at least don't talk about anything 10 chapters in the future. I'll be showing off as much as I can.
