I thought I'd play Path of Radiance for the first time in several years in the hopes that I could finally make some progress (especially since it's the only FE game I have, not counting Radiant Dawn, that I haven't made recent progress in) but then I wound up dooming Kieran to an inevitable death on the second turn. How frustrating!

Part of it was down to bad luck, since Kieran missed with the hammer when trying to kill the enemy knight, but it's still mostly my own fault for putting him in range of the nearby cavalier in the first place. Sorry, Kieran.

Marcia got a level-up without gaining any stats anyway, so it wasn't such a huge loss that I messed up this time. At least the screw-up happened early in the map and not after I was over halfway through it, unlike that one time way back when...

(This is chapter 11, by the way.)

PoR can be a pain in the ass at times because of the lack of save states. Chapter 11 can be especially frustrating, though I think 12 is worse because RAVENS. D:

And Kieran, unfortunately, is a poor little victim of stereotypical weapon triangle designs. Axes are a crapshoot, his skill stat can be a crapshoot and his Gamble skill makes it worse. (I think in all the time I've played FE, Hawkeye was the only axe user without a skill problem. I don't count Jill because axes are her secondary weapon and you can up the accuracy of theirs.)

Pretty much! At least Awakening and Radiant Dawn let you save on each turn.

Hector starts off a little shaky, but that's what the first Secret Book is for. And once he promotes he can actually hit sword users! :D I've never played SD but I don't doubt Darros is useless. I didn't have the best luck with the axe guys in Monshou save for Barts, and you don't even get him back in book 2.

Aah. XD I play casual because I'm a fanatic about keeping characters alive.

He's a little slow and inaccurate early on, but that usually clears up fast. Especially if he and Eliwood have at least B support. <3

(Awakening makes characters so broken they can take on just about anything, lol.)

I need to play SD at some point. The only contact I've had with Akaneia is Monshou, lol.
