Hacking method: FEBuilder
Base Game: FE8
In FE8, it’s set by default that you get game over if your Lords die. My main character in the hack I’m building is based off of Eirika so when he dies, it’s game over, as intended.
I would like a few other party members, who aren’t Lords (e.g. a myrmidon, a troubadour) to all cause a game over if they die, because they’re essential to the plot.
I realize this makes the game difficult to iron man, but that’s not the design I’m going for. I want more of a tighter narrative where even some minor characters play a role (and thus their deaths mean you restart the chapter).
I think this would be straight forward to implement but I can’t figure out how to do it. Has anyone been able to make non-lord characters ‘essential,’ meaning their death causes game over? Can be chapter specific or across the whole game.
