FEU plays TLP


#83

So, I was tasked with 23x and 23xx. 23x was a shopping chapter. Sounds simple, right? Nah.

I went shopping five times, each time with various issues. VBA hated me, event IDs hated me, Blazer hated me, etc. As such, there aren’t any screenshots for chapter 23x. This post is going to be text-heavy.

Chapter 23x Rant

I didn’t think you could screw up a shopping chapter, but I’ve come to learn how easy that is. 23xx has some stupid requirements that made shopping a chore. First, you need to bring Haas and Storm along in order to get the Emblem Bow. There’s no indication of why/when/how, like many other ‘secrets’ in TLP. Even better, if you happen to coincidentally bring them on your shopping trip, the conversation is only triggerable by one of them. You could end up so close yet so far.

After that, you have to wait the entire 10 turns the chapter allots for you. Blazer was ‘kind’ enough to give you a soldier with whom you can talk to in order to end the shopping early, but doing so prevents you from getting 23xx. This isn’t explained to you, either. In fact, any sane player would choose to end the chapter early if they were concerned about their turncount.

This doesn’t have anything really to do with the chapter, but apparently we weren’t eligible for 23xx due to some Emblem Axe shenanigans (thanks Cam), which led to some frustration. After that, VBA gobbled my save when I tried to set the event ID, so I had to sit through painful shopping music again. Luckily, I got to watch Althacrits plow through weak arena units with the sweet assassin animation, so it wasn’t all bad.

Lastly, although I enjoy the concept of a shopping chapter, there’s an element to 23xx that makes the experience redundant.

Here’s 23xx, finally. Still no screenshots of what I bought. I don’t even remember, having done 23x so many times.

Chapter 23xx: Nebulous Ruins

Nebulous Ruins

Oh, and flickr decided to .jpeg all of my images, but that hardly matters.

After a nice shopping trip, the gang gets mysteriously teleported to some spooky ruins with a creepy dude. The dude wants to suck the “ether” from the Emblem weapons, so Anakin hands them over as quickly as he possibly can without a good reason. Creep sucks them, hands them back, and then runs away to summon his spooky goons. The weapons are returned and nothing’s been done to them–they’re just as powerful as always. Here are some screenies of this “dramatic scene.”

1

The important question is “why are you?”

2

And the ability to dumb the text

3

>arte

4

>arte x2

5

Hmm, I wonder what this dude who wants to suck the power from your weapons is doing in this place, which may or may not be ruins that people may or may not know about. I mean, you’ve made two conclusions, why not make the easy one, too?

6

I’m going to make an “arte” of strangling this guy.

7

I later learned that there’s a unit in our group with “arte” in their description. I hate everything.

8

Somehow I missed this screenshot from before. The answer’s pretty clear: You fell from where you were standing previously. There really isn’t a good reason to CAPITALIZE this, was there?

Here’s about where I stopped caring for screenshots. The chapter is full of ‘ghosts’ who have meager stats, low health, and solid gray palettes. They spawn endlessly and only deal damage to Liquid, really. I sent Althacrits to the left, along with Cia and Tamiko for shaman-clearing, and had everyone else go right to kill the boss.

In case you didn’t know:

illuminate confrimed

10

Unlike this dude’s goons, he’s mean. I’d rather not fight him with anyone, so it’s time for. . .

. . .Power cheese 2017. Also, why isn’t this guy on his throne?

12

Even with a stupidly strong boss, the hardest part of this chapter was getting it to trigger.

13

power cheese

And that’s it for this chapter. You get his super-duper tome and a bunch of material things that Kelik doesn’t care about wants to grab, including some OP gem and a hammerne staff, along with some powerful gear and whatnot. Kind of makes you feel like an idiot for shopping for powerful items when you get handed a bunch afterward.

Aaaaand that’s all for what was supposed to be a short gaiden trip.

I have ch25, but I’ll just wait until wan’s part is posted for my reserved post

Plus, I fucking hate this chapter


#85

“Soulless”
“Ghosts”
What


#86

oh my god i’m so sorry i thought i posted

will make it later

HEAVILY ABRIDGED but I think the point gets acrossplus this brevity lets me show this juxtaposition, anakin tells sieg to sleep but not shon wry

also “midnight” vs “couple hours to dawn”








obligatory note that Rana’s dark colors are darker than the outline


also hi “Renault”’
omg kelik
we’ve met the guy before

“renault” pls

Oh, yeah, right. Unshakable Faith is playing but it doesn’t suit the mood imhoOh uh for some reason “renault” only has fully closed & fully open mouthf rames





this is a lie
but it does come close -w-




amazing; crew
simply amazing
do you have any purpose in this
because this seems really plain honestly
also sorcerory



Liuke has a custom palette! That you can see in exactly three locations. Wow.

Just wow. Of all the places to put a bit of extra effort: The palette of the merchant.
Also this is as good a time to talk about it as anybut the top left corner of TLP’s battle screen nameboxes (top right corner for the enemies) really bugs me
what even is it supposed to be
best promo gains



The enemies this chapter have real stats.


when I say “Actually have real stats” though; considering our units are all at least at that level it’s… kind of a moot point

Male sages do not have animations I’m not sure if this is a Blazer goof or an Us thing


Fighting of The Spirit plays
that song is good


howard’s palette since i’d never seen it before


thanks zane for not using all of this up btw



“renault” is pretty deadly to be honest

he doesn’t move at least


pegs from the foggg






arch you’re falling a lot behind.
you’re supposed to have 120 HP, 37 strength, 50 skill, 44 speed, 30 luck, 32 defense, and 30 resistance by level 30

You’re falling pretty short of those


designers: don’t do this
(remove the tomahawk)


zach: stealing kills I want to feed somebody else again


man, i bothered to give you the immortal sword so that you wouldn’t need a crit

Speaking of “immortal sword”-- Is the Phoenicis supposed to be Tekun’s weapon?




This is when I realize that all the enemies are loaded up well

I still think berserker with tomahawk and killer axe is dumb

unit menu is looking a little overpopulated… “Take” and “Merch” could also be on that list!

kelik has reasonable promo gains
this surprised me
Oh yeah btw Kelik’s Legend class gives him 7 movement because he’s SPESHUL
I was about to call this good–And then I realize that nvm, he does have the Swordmaster crit bonus
I take back half the things I was about to say about Kelik’s 7 move being good
Kelik’s 7 move is nice because it gives him something
Anakin has magic, and staves, and motivate
Shon has swords, and lances, and a horse, also Silvans
(does anakin even get a prf)
Kelik, at this time, could not have a prf anymore (as the second Flamberge is locked to the gaiden)
and, is swordlocked. and has no special abilities, unlike anakin
So at this point in time it is feasible that all your other lords have an undeniable special utility
whereas Kelik is just a combat unit
So him having 7 move is nice

This is also disappointing because the Sniper starts the map with the Brave bow equipped. :9
This means we can’t get the Brave Bow, & the Winter Bow is +3 weight +2 might relative to the brave bow but doesn’t double attacks so it sucks

Next time, 25x probably

I fucking hate this map, the design itself is okay, but the music is grating and the enemy strength is nuts, more than once I needed more than one unit to deal with an enemy and when they can just kill you easily it’s a load of shit. Glad that’s over with.

I’ve got a short chapter. A very short chapter.


Where we go and slay a dragon.


I think we all know this.


EDGELORD VS DRAGON (Kelik crit, but that’s about it.)


And then the dragon channelled his inner Alvis and send Sigurd to the grave. At least he’s the merchant.


Everyone’s favourite armour gets the kill.


Let’s close this update with Anakin saying what the rest of us were thinking.

“TLP was a mistake.” - Basically everyone, 20XX

Circles updated on the discord. I think. You’ll have to take his word for it that chapter 26 was completed. Normally Datagne was up to do this chapter, but he was busy, so Zane volunteered, which coincided with breakthroughs in FE5 hacking and no update, so I volunteered to get this run over with. Maximum cheese go!

Chapter 27

Erect Tardis obtained.

What, you thought I was gonna play this chapter legitimately?

I actually haven’t even moved my units yet.

Well damn.

Where there’s a will, there’s a way!

I ultimately forget to get this.

Ok, dropped everyone’s items.

Capped the important stats, so I don’t even care.

Uh…shit. A new Galagar appears.

Kelik will be the bait; he has the speed boost from the Erect Tardis and an amulet for extra dodge. Inanna is ferrying Anakin to the throne, on the right.

Can you, now.

I…didn’t realize he doubled. Still, he had a 45% hit rate, so the odds were with me.

Ok, NOW we’re all set. He still has the hax 200 avoid, but I don’t need to kill him.

I get some chipping in while I wait to get to the throne.

8 turns, courtesy of Inanna. Also looted the bottom 4 chests, for a Swordslayer, a berserk staff, a wind sword, and a Meteor tome (super accurate bolting, which is actually kinda nice).

Chapter 28

So…I dunno what happened, but this map is completely screwed up. And if you go look in the northwest corner, the game freezes. Dunno why.
That being said, the objective is to defeat the 4 senators, 2 of which would be on the middle thrones, 1 in the SW and SE corners, and King Louis on the northern throne. Unfortunately for us, the way to Louis and the corner guys is blocked off with impassible tiles, and none of them move. And we don’t have a warp staff.

So, we’ll just have to get creative. The bright side of all this is that no enemy is on the throne, meaning statuses won’t get cured on the next turn.

Dunno why I had Kelik of all people tanking the berserk staff, but yeah. Viola turns on Apollo and does a nice chunk of damage, and Apollo doubles her back.

Your daily reminder that Munio is really fucking annoying.

Apollo heals up Viola, allowing her to show her appreciation by hitting him again.

With some rng abuse, I manage to take this guy out before he can use his elixir.

Next turn, Apollo focuses on healing himself…

Meaning Viola suicides on him.

I replaced Kelik with Cia; it’s at this point that I realize they still have guard AI and aren’t going to move.

Your turn!

Super accurate long-range tome says what?

2 turns later, Apollo (who has the 15% crit skill for some reason, like Althares), crit-kills Louis.

I show my appreciation for his help by murdering him.

And getting a level.

GODDAMNIT!

Fortunately, I have a super-accurate long-range tome, too.

Well, we didn’t get #4 because I cheesed the previous chapter (I would have had to kill everyone). But that’s ok, right? No? Too bad.
Alright Cam, finish this already.


#91

:confused:

I learn something absolutely mystifying new about TLP with every passing day.


#92

It’s alive, ALIVE


#93

Long live the let’s play!
And now for a six-month wait!


#94

Wait you can do the enemy control glitch using a torch?


#95

Apollo has a Crit Bonus because he was the previous Mage General(at least that’s what I always assumed as Galagar also has a Crit Bonus), so yeah, just one more bit of kekimus from good ol’ Blazer.


#96

Torch staff, yes. Regular torch, no.


#97

Cam pls
