Note from the staff:
Due to the spoiler rules, anything concerning plot in Fates must be spoiler tagged until May 27th (Birthright/Conquest) or June 16th (Revelation). Any plot-related DLC must also be spoiler tagged until it has been out in Europe (assuming Europe continues to get things last) for a week at minimum.
However, if someone is playing through ANY game in the series for the first time and asks to remain unspoiled, please respect their requests and spoiler-tag any plot-related information about that game when it is discussed. Due to the nature of the series (i.e. having many Japanese-only older installments and Awakening having brought in a whole crop of new fans), new people start all the time and likely have not played every single game.
Also, to be courteous to the people on your friend list, please also wrap text in spoiler tags in brackets.
If you don't, due to a glitch in vBulletin, your text will show up untagged on your profile and your friends' activity feed, so it could ruin things for them.
I love these games. The conservative-styled tactical RPG of classic medieval warfare: Fire Emblem. Discuss! I have only two of the games, though; Sacred Stones, and Sword of Seals, which I bought in Japan. I haven't beaten either, but they're a blast - so I thought I'd make a thread.
