Original Thread: Fire Emblem: Binding Blade. Yes, the one with Roy in it.



It occurred to me that I've never actually seen how this game goes. For some reason I never got around to playing it, I wasn't around for the first LP, and the other one going on right now is a mechanics-only run that mostly glosses over the story. I guess I could go read the archived thread - but where's the fun in that? Clearly the best way to experience the full thing is to do a blind LP disclaimer: LP may not be entirely blind of the game and show the world what's up!

(If anything I've heard about this game is true, that's probably not going to be Roy's stats.)

Since I don't know the game too well, this is going to be a mostly informal, relaxed run, not a super informative sperg-about-all-the-stats completionist one.

To differentiate myself from the previous thread, I'll be using the re-translation patch that was released a couple of years back. I'll also be doing a slight bit of romhacking on the side just to spice things up.

Fun stuff made by the thread. I'll note which chapter it was posted after so you can stop reading before you get into spoiler territory if you care about that kind of thing.

Chapter 1

Orange Fluffy Sheep posted:

You people are already running me dry!

This is about all I've got left in me...!

Chapter 2

Orange Fluffy Sheep posted:

Rude has the lowest-level, least competent troops in all of Bern. I'm wondering why they left the princess under his care in the first place.

Chapter 4

I don't know if this counts as fanart since I've had it since last year, but I logged onto Guild Wars 2 and forgot what I named my pet shark.

nothing can escape his maw

Chapter 7

Tyty posted:

I dare say this "Roy" fellow doesn't seem to be quite... How should I put it?... Fit to be the son of a marquess, if you will. He's run himself positively ragged!

Chapter 8

Orange Fluffy Sheep posted:

You're already doing sillier shit than I could think of.

Have to up the ante, I guess.

Chapter 9

Orange Fluffy Sheep posted:

(I just picked names out of the wikipedia synopsis I don't actually know much about Game of Thrones.)

(This LP started on May 29th so four episodes have aired since Roy started his stabbing career.)

Chapter 10

Orange Fluffy Sheep posted:

Unfortunately all FE6 threads get is me.

I should explain: Clarine has eyestalks because I did it once and I have a canon goddammit.

Sigh... Youthful energy. Where does it come from?

Probably the asskicking pants. In one of the pockets, with the resolve.

And let me start by saying that this mental image would not leave my head.

with apologies to OFS

Orange Fluffy Sheep posted:

Well Vilkacis if you aren't recruiting Percy you'll just have to deal with alarmingly elaborate references to anti-German WW1 propoganda.

In which I cast you as the German, obviously.

Aw, it's all over. Oh well, thanks for the fun LP vilkacis, and have a doodle of Fae and Idun holding hands.

I don't my scanner readily available at the moment, so sorry if the image quality is a little bad from my phone taking the picture.
