Wait, how does one skip Frayja? Is he not obligatory to get to Moun?

Ah... So we're keeping Chester unpromoted forever then? Because we're forbidden from making him a paladin and we're making someone else the pegasus.

That rule is weird. Initially I thought it was just gonna force us to choose the special promotion for characters we promote.

Don't forget that we also have the rule "Only One of Each Class Tree" so it would be impossible to have Eric AND Chester in our group together no matter which promotion they get.

And I think we decided beforehand that Eric will become our pegasus (unless someone manages to kill him off before we get the wings :shifty: ). That combined with the "Only special Promotions) is the reason why Chester can't be promoted and will later be replaced.

Sorry, slipped my mind. Yes, I Noma'd. I can do it today if whoever originally had it hasn't done yet.

Well now. I suppose it's back to the original owner again? Who was it?

I guess this solves the question about the original owner ;)

Did someone say it was my turn?


Went back to Hassan, promoted a few guys and got new gear for everyone, ready for battle!
... the wilderness battle outside of Hassan triggered. Begrudgingly waited until it was Bowie's turn, egressed, once again got caught up in the battle. Reloaded the savestate because I wasn't sure if the game would now always trigger the battle, did the whole busywork again.

When I started battle #19 I was a bit worried that without Peter I would be lacking firepower against the Orcs, but after the Soulsowers went down in two or three hits I realized that this was going to be a cakewalk. At some point I started throwing out random heals with Sarah, and split up the party to get the Gargoyle in the upper left. She still finished with almost half of her MP left, so I wasted some XP there.
My overconfidence was punished toward the end of the battle, when one Orc took a very early turn and brought Sarah down to 5 HP thanks to a heavy attack, other than that no one dropped below 50% health.
Gerhalt was the MVP of the game, he countered almost every time he got hit and also did a second attack.

Afterwards I promoted Sarah and Kazin. We've got a fully promoted roster now, with the exception of Chester. By the way, what is to be done with him? Is he simply going to stick around for as long as he's useful / until he dies?

Phew. Good ol' Harpy Pond.
Things started out horribly with Slade getting clawed in the face and feeling faint from poison.
Luckily, I was able to hold off the first onslought without anyone dying, even if there where a few close calls.
Chester actually keeps holding his own for now. He also wins a medal for surviving an attack with 1 HP in the latter half of the battle and holding on to it until the end, where I was able to give him a savety Heal 1 with Sarah's last MP. I opted to kill the Arrow Launcher with her the turn before because it would otherwise have shot at the poor Knight.

Also shoutouts to Kazin for being the Harpy killing machine with Dao.

Guess it's mine then. I'll be out of town over the weekend, but I may have time to do it still.
