These were originally going to be one chapter (I split them mainly because I promised you four updates but couldn’t finish one of the oneshots I planned on uploading today). As such, I will be combining their notes.
The beginning, if you didn’t notice, was a recap of the end of Chapter 3, except from Karel’s perspective.
In order to qualify for the leader boards, you have to have participated in three hundred rounds, but not necessarily three hundred tournaments. There can be over twenty rounds in a single tournament, each counted separately when calculating leader board positions.
Kinesis Magic is essentially the Force.

Most of Miriel’s dialogue this chapter may have seemed OOC. I have two separate excu– err, justifications for this:
- Plot Reason: Miriel was under intense strain.
- Real Reason: I didn’t have the energy to improve her dialogue. Hopefully that will not happen again.
The Hypogeums in Feroxi arenas are based on the ones in the Roman Colosseum, though they serve very different purposes: The Colosseum’s hypogeum was a complex network of tunnels beneath the field that stored slaves, convicts, combat animals, and a variety of other things; Feroxi hypogeums are basically prep rooms.
I know I said before that Robin had more than one restraint. The thing is, because of his amnesia, he can only control his outermost level (for now).
‘Elding’ is the Icelandic word for Thunderbolt. The spell is basically Sith Lightning.
Miriel will not normally be able to do what she did this chapter. Rage boosts are not tricks I like to pull often.
Nimchas are the knives assassin-class characters in the Elibe games duel-wield.
Yes, yes, I know I jumped the gun on unsealing Falchion, but trust me, I’ll make up for it.
I didn’t really want to introduce the Shepherds here, but a promise is a promise. Sorry if it felt wrong.
“Dragon God” Forms look like Naga and Loptyr’s incarnations in the FE4 times. They are four times the size of the Fire Dragon boss from FE7.
Had the Ice Dragon taken its opponents seriously, only Chrom would have stood a chance because of the boost Falchion gives him.
The Astra Invocations are roughly based on those in Hindu mythology.
Chrom’s plans are not exactly what they were in FE13.
If you’re wondering who the old Manakete was, I’ll say this: God can appear in a variety of forms.
Mihnea will be important next chapter… and he’s the Gharnef archetype of the overarching plot that takes places between Tales 2 and 12. The next overarching plot will also have a single Gharnef and will take place between Tales 12 and 20. Both have the same Medeus.
Cramer basically looks like the comic book version of DC’s Deathstroke (sans the eyepatch) with Geese (from FE6)’s outfit.
MacMillian, Excellus, Torden, Tain and Elim are the five important OC’s on Walhart’s side in the Valm arc (which will be ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like it was in the actual game). Needless to say, they will be getting a lot of screen time.
MacMillian was originally supposed to be Cramer’s son, but a subplot I later thought of dashed that idea.
The rationale behind Juidice: I wanted another female Valmese General for a subplot I intend on introducing, and I needed someone to be the antithesis of Cramer.
I’ve been planning the fight between Cramer and Juidice since before I actually started writing this fic.
Some time in the near future, I may upload a post with photos demonstrating the different stances I mentioned.
Shadow Manipulation, like Kinesis Magic, resembles the Force from Star Wars, but is less potent.
If you couldn’t already tell, Elim and Juidice are in a relationship of a sort.
I added Lyn’s scene to explain what she was doing between now and Eliwood’s tale. She won’t be coming back to Elibe until AFTER Darin’s attack. This change won’t have as great an effect as you think on the plot, but it will change Lyn’s motivations later in the story. How? I’m not going to spoil it for you.
Next chapter: the antagonists become the protagonists, and the plot darkens dramatically…
