Coming soon! My next major project: Visual Emblem: Novel 776! A Fire Emblem 5: Thracia 776 romhack featuring the VN genre’s most popular characters pitted against one another in war in the world of Thracia 776!
Characters and series include:
Famicom Detective Club (Lord: Ayumi)
Steins;Gate (Leader: Kurisu)
Fate/stay night (Leader: Emiya)
Higurashi (Leader: Keiichi)
Umineko (Leader: Beatrice)
Katawa Shoujo (Leader: Shizune)
Little Busters! (Leader: Riki Naoe)
Doki Doki Literature Club (Leader: Monika)
Ever 17 (Leader: Coco)
Saya no Uta (Leader: Saya)
Rewrite (Leader: Kotarou )
Phoenix Wright (Leader: Phoenix Wright)
Danganronpa (Leader: Junko)
Ayumi from Famicom Detective Club will be the Lord of this Visual Novel Fire Emblem romhack (given she’s a Nintendo character and I believe it make sense for their VN character to be a lord in a Nintendo game ). She has access to Swords, Magic, and Staves starting off and retain her weaponry upon promotion to Lady Lord.
Given Thracia 776 gives multiple characters the chance to provide leadership bonuses (instead of some FE games), I figured that FE5 would work best for my ideas (of having multiple leaders provide support).
Example: Monika of DDLC provides support bonuses to Yuri, Sayori, and Natsuki if Monika is on the same map as her army. Because her Leadership Stars ranks up to 4 (out of 5), Yuri, Sayori, and Natsuki each gain an additional 20% to their hit and evade.
Keiichi does the same with his Higurashi army (Rena, Mion, Satoko, and Rika). What makes Keiichi special from Monika as a leader is that he has Charm (Charisma) as a skill. Charm gives any nearby units 10% to their hit and evade bonuses. His army nets an additional 5% to their bonuses as he has 1-star leadership. Therefore, the Higurashi army automatically net 15% in bonuses.
In short, this romhack riles heavily on supporting units as Thracia 776 is a difficult game. You must use teamwork in order to survive.
Thracia 776’s elements such as capturing, fog of war, and fatigue will remind in this romhack. This ensures that the players are thinking about their next move and prevents overusing certain characters. I get that you may love Saber (fate), but let rest for a map. Besides, you might need her to recruit Rin to your side. If Saber is tired and can’t go into the chapter where you must recruit Rin then you’ll lose on her.
Deadlords are gonna be in the final chapter. Depending on who you didn’t convince to your side, if they got killed before the final chapter, or let them get captured, certain characters will become mindless vessels to the Deadlords. Sayori off DDLC, Hanako off Katawa Shoujo, Mia off Phoenix Wright, and Kurisu off Stein Gate are possible candidates for Deadlords vessels However, that might change over time.
