I made an account simply to say a few things. FIRST, this hack is INCREDIBLE looking. It has that FE7 FE8 charm, whilst also staying true to my former favorite fire emblem game Gaiden and to its remake (which now has claimed exclusive rights to that title of 'best game'). However, the changes you made were CERTAINLY for the better, such as the way you handled the thief shrine. If all of the redone maps are of the quality that we've seen so far, I certainly want to play this finished hack, (nay, I NEED to play it if that is the case.) That being said, the SECOND thing: I'd LOVE to playtest this game. I'm not a hacker (though I've tried many times unsuccessfully to get into the hobby,) though I AM a massive Gaiden and Echoes fan, so I have every intention of helping if you would allow it.
Hit me up on discord, I'd love to help with playtesting.
