A FE8 PME like many others (or maybe not)

So yeah, I decided to do this to practice my romhacking skills.

Rules

  • Characters: Right now, I accept replacements for the playable cast only. I’ll decide whether to change bosses/add new characters after the playable cast is done.

  • Classes: I accept new classes, promotion options, characters with the same class having different promotion options, old classes getting new weapons, custom animations, etc. In case of a new class, please mention which weapon types it should have access to (along with anything else you feel it’s worth mentioning).

  • Stats: Your character will have the bases of the character they replace. You’re, however, allowed to swap 2 of the base stats of said character. Swapping HP is not allowed for obvious reasons. Note that if you’re replacing a physical unit with a magical one (or vice-versa), you won’t need to switch Str and Mag.

  • Skills: I’m using a FE8 rom with a custom build of SkillSystem. I can even try to make new skills if anyone wants. Each character should have a personal skill, and optionally they can have some level up skills. I’m not going to allow two characters having the same personal skill (or learning somebody else’s personal skill via level up) and in case I feel a certain skill or skill combination is too broken, I may modify it for balance purposes. Also, all unmounted classes except Dancer get Shove and all mounted ones get Canto (not sure if normal or Canto+ yet).

  • Weapons: I accept suggestions for new weapons, be it normal ones or prf. Remember that there is also the option to make a ‘soft lock’ (like Aura/Excalibur in FE11/12).

And, well, I don’t know what else to say, so if you’ve got a question, just ask. I accept suggestions.

Just to clarify: by ‘expertise+’ you mean ‘Discipline+’ and by ‘Dark gift’ you mean ‘Shadowgift’, right?

If adding a Prf is possible and there is enough item slots I’d like to ask for a 9 might 50 hit 5 crit axe, with the gimmick of having inbuilt Astra on it (at this point I’m trying to make a reference to certain character this unit is based on with this weapon) Call it Zero Revolution.

I count 340. Is that intentional?

Just to doublecheck, does her tome have both Rapier effectiveness and Nosferatu life drain?

I’m not against that, but in that case Druids may need something to give them a better niche. Any suggestions?

Which ailments do you want it to inflict? (Default is 25% Poison/Silence/Sleep/Berserk, 0% Petrify)

How about making Druids only be able to use dark magic, but they get crit boost?

I guess that a specialist vs generalist aproach should work. Though I might as well rename them Sorcerers then.

@Someone should I add map sprites to my post aswell

OTHER (OPTIONAL): I don’t know if this is to much to ask. But if possible in a last few chapter could you have one of the lord talk to Amber. If you do that then Amber will summon a green unit onto the battlefield. Similar to Douglas in Project Ember. But instead of summon a bunch of green units it instead summon one really good green unit name Merrin a Ranger class. But Amber will only gained this ability for the last few chapters in the game.

In FE13 her growths were 390% in total, so yeah.

Yup

I’m not against that, but in that case Druids may need something to give them a better niche. Any suggestions?

Hmm, haven’t thought of that one out. Only suggestion I can thank of is making the Druid’s more tankier ( e.g. MAX DEF 27) so they’re in line with FE13’s Sorcerers.

You could probably copy the stats from vanilla gorgon to be used for lamia and, I was thinking female shaman could promo to them as well, think it would be cool. Staff savant can be their class skill so a more Healing oriented druid, You’d need to compensate with lower stat gains but higher staff rank if you wanna go that direction tho lol
