Last time on Fire Emblem: The Three Empires. We took control of our main character after he received a painful head injury while fighting the forces of The Brown-Triangle Company, a bandit group that was terrorizing the village of Rhama on the western boarder of our home country of Atea. In the midst of the battle we saw our hero perform daring feats of do and with the help of his allies, in particular a female who stated that she was his body guard, defeated the leader of the bandit raid with a spear thrust to the face! As the dust settled on the battlefield our hero removed his helmet and verified, yes, he is in fact still ruggedly handsome as he downed a vulnerary to heal his injuries. As his allies gathered around him in joy he realized something very important, HE CAN’T REMEMBER ANYTHING!!!Welcome to Fire Emblem: The Three Empires QuestTwitter: @BurningSigilPasteBins:Current Stats and Party: http://pastebin.com/jrcHeZBsRules and other Important things: http://pastebin.com/XT24DNG3Last time we ended we were deciding on a name and hair color we also earned a level up so with the first post of the night lets get some things out of the way.Name:>Fortis>RowanHair:>Blue>RedLevel Up!: Roll 7d100, lower is better.

>>36860671Before I forget the previous thread is here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=The%20Three%20Empires%20Quest
>>36860671Level Up! +1HP, +1Strength, +1Skill, +1 Luck, +1 Defense, +1 Resistance“By the way,” you state flatly. “It seems that bump on my head was a bit worse than it appeared. So if you wouldn’t mind telling me. Who am I? And who are all of you people?”Your friends all stand around you in an almost circle in the evening sun. Guard Girl stands almost slack jawed, its hard to tell what Multi-Knight and the Christmas Knights seem to think because they still have their helmets on but they sit on their horses silently. The archer girl seems shocked and has a look of abject horror on her face, and the Yellow Knight, well the Yellow Knight looks like he is about to bust a gut, which he promptly does.“Bwahahahahaha,” he laughs loudly “that’s a good one Rowan. Pretending you don’t know your own family.” He continues in a mock tone of your voice “Oh no, guys I took a bonk on my noggin now I have amnesia. Hahahahaha! That’s a good one, almost had me going there…”At this point he looks over at you as if expecting you to make light of the situation with him. Or to break down some sort of act. But you seriously can’t remember any of the people around you other than the fact that you know that you know them from somewhere and that they helped you in that pitched combat. The yellow knight’s face suddenly turns from mirth to a look of horror similar to that of the archer girl when you fail to give up what he assumes to be some sort of charade.“You… Y-your just joking… right? You’d never forget us… Right!? Its me! Cousin Arc! You couldn’t forget me! Or Agrias, or Felecia, or Mark, or Earnest or Ornholt or Mark. Its us!” he pleads with you but you are just confused, who are the people whose names he is saying? “Stop joking around! Its not funny man!”1/?
>>36861952The Archer Girl looks like she is about to burst into tears, the red Christmas knight unhorses and removes his helmet his expression is almost blank but you can sense that he is worried about something, probably the situation at hand. The Green Knight and Multi-Knight stay on their horses, they fail to move, perhaps stunned by the events unfolding or understanding that you are indeed not joking and waiting for the right moment to begin explaining. The Guard Girl has regained some of her composure but she is going through multiple faces ranging from anger, to shock, to confusion to… wait is she blushing?Suddenly, you are grabbed by the Yellow Knight who starts shaking you violently. “Cut the act you b-bastard! Its snot- Its not funny! This sick joke of yours has-“ He is interrupted as the Guard Girl rushes over and shoves him away from you he hits the ground and dirt flys up. “Enough!” she shouts. “Its obvious by now Lord Rowan is not joking. He would never do such a sick ruse to us. He wasn’t- isn’t that kind of person.” She looks back over her shoulder at you as the yellow knight clambers up from his prone position. “We will settle this when we get back to town. Right now we have prisoners to bring back and when we get there we can figure out how to help Rowan get back to his old self.” She states in a firm tone.With this the yellow knight sniffles as he regains his composure nodding as he sees the validity of her words and goes over to help the Archer Girl who seems to be overcoming an episode of crying as she rubs the remains of tears from her eyes. The red Christmas knight re-horses and he and the green Christmas knight go with the Multi-knight to collect the prisoners. Guard girl turns to look at you.2/3
>>36861979“I’m sorry about Arc he was- is very close with you. I know this is going to be a lot to take in. But I’ll try my best to explain it all to you back at the inn. I’m Agrias by the way, Agrias Oaks, your childhood friend and personal body guard,” she seems pained as she says these words. “and you are Prince Rowan of Atea. First of your name. Heir to the Throne of the Atean Empire.”What do you say?>Write in
>>36861979Damn forgot the picture.
>>36862000"Heir to the Throne of the Atean Empire? Wow, thats a lot to take in. But I guess its better than being nothign right?"and then add this in somewhere, as a joke: "Do I have a beautiful princess back home waiting for me?"
>>36862000"Don't worry, I'm sure it'll all come back to me soon."
>>36862159>>36862280>>36862288Looks like we are going with"Wow, thats cool." along with joking followed by reassurance.Writing
>>36861952>Its me! Cousin Arc! We're not going bowling dammit
>>36862000You take a gulp of air in as she says these words. “Heir to the Throne of the Atean Empire?” You Heir to the throne!? You!? You don’t even know who you are let alone what it means to rule be the prince of a nation! What, why, how? The endless responsibilities you must be shouldering as the First Prince. Destined to lead one of the three major nations on this continent.“Wow, that’s a lot to take in.” you say trying your best not to show any sign of the panic that is currently happening in your mind. How are you supposed to lead a nation? Sure it might not be for years if your parent’s health holds up, but seriously, you! Having command over the lives of thousands? Of Millions? This is going to take some serious getting used to.Agrias looks at you with a small smile on her face. One that still has a hit of worry in it but she seems happy at least that you have your wits about you. “Good, If you have any questions about your past I- We will be happy to help you, after all you are not only our lord you are our friend.”You mull through your mind a bit before concluding that she needs some reassurance that you are still the same as you were before, nothing comes to mind. Perhaps a joke to lighten the mood and learn a bit about yourself…“So what about if I asked if I have a beautiful princess back home waiting for me?”Suddenly her face turns bright red and she suddenly finds something interesting far off in the distance to her right. “N-n-n-n-n-no, although precedence normally would be for the prince to be betrothed or even wed by your age your father the Lord-Emperor stated that it w-w-w-w-would be up to you on finding the one to be y-y-your wife.” She stammers out.“Agrias” you state trying to snap her out of it. “It was a joke.”1/2
>>36863121“Ah,” Suddenly she perks back up seeming to be back in her usual state of mind “of course. You always were a joker, my lord. Maybe we just need to get your memories back and you’ll be back to the way things were before.” Despite saying this she doesn’t seem entirely happy when saying it.“Don't worry, I'm sure it'll all come back to me soon.” You say trying to reassure her. The smile from before returns her face. “I’m sure it will. Now come on, let’s get back to the town. We need to go over this with the others.”Your party begins to head back towards the town. The four bandit prisoners are walking tied up between the two Christmas knights who are in the middle of the procession. The Multi-Knight is at the front of the party and is conversing with Agrias. Arc is towards the back of the procession and is talking with Archer Girl, who you assume is Felecia. Who do you go and talk with?>Multi-Knight and Agrias>The Christmas Knights Red and Green>Arc and Felecia
>>36863144>Arc and Felecia
>>36863121>>36863144Lol dropped my trip
>>36863144>Arc and Felicia
>>36863178>>36863193>>36863200Looks like we are going with our cousin.Writing.
>>36863346This trip. Why can't I hold it?
>>36863144You decide to head over and talk to your cousin, he seemed pretty shaken up earlier by the turn of events and you figure you might want to make sure that he is ok. You head over towards the back of the precession to go talk to him and Felecia. They seem to be in the middle of a conversation as you approach Arc’s arm is around Felecia’s back and he appears to be trying to comfort the archer girl who still appears to be upset.“-ut how could he just forget everything? It’s not fair to us or him!” Felecia stammers out to Arc as she stares diagonally towards the ground walking at a slowed pace. “We still don’t know if he did. Maybe he just needs to get his thoughts jogged. Maybe it’s some kind of thing where he needs to sleep it off. We can’t give up hope that the old Rowan is still in there somewhere. I’m sure of it.” Arc tries to come off as reassuring but even as you approach you can tell there is little faith in his words. He turns as sees your approach. “Well speak and he shall appear. Hey.”“Hey, yourself” you reply not sure what to really say in this situation. But you don’t have to as Arc speaks up.“Look about earlier I might have over reacted a bit-“ he starts.“A bit?” Felecia interrupts seeming to perk up by your presence. “You were throttling him. Its not nice to do that to our cousin you know.” She punches Arc in the shoulder.“Ok, ok, I get it. Look, cuz, I’m sorry about that but, we are- were close man. And, as you know- knew when you’re a noble real friends aren’t always easy to come by, especially with in your own family…” he trails off before snapping back to reality. “So anyways you must have came over here for a reason. So what’d you want to talk about?”Well?>So what can you tell me about my past self [Inquire past]>So what was up with that trailing off at the end there [Inquire family past]>So whats’s my relation to you and Felecia [Inquire Cousin Relations]
>>36863914>So whats’s my relation to you and Felecia [Inquire Cousin Relations]then>So what can you tell me about my past self [Inquire past]
>>36863914>So whats’s my relation to you and Felecia [Inquire Cousin Relations]>So what can you tell me about my past self [Inquire past]>So what was up with that trailing off at the end there [Inquire family past]In that order if possible. We need to learn about our past life
>>36863914>>36864061Yeah. Let's just ask it all, if that's okay.
>>36863940>>36864061>>36864128Asking it all wins it. Gonna be a long post. And geeze the quest threads sure are out in forcce tonight. Might wind up sticking to weekday nights from here on out.Writing
>>36864184Finals are just finishing as well. All the college students are now home for Christmas and everyone else is getting ready for Christmas next week. It's going to be hectic for at least another week or two.
>>36864184Well this is the only quest I'm really paying attention to.
>>36864358That fills my heart with warmth. cause even I am looking at one other thread Im a terrible person Half way done.
>>36863914“So what exactly is my relation to you and Felecia? You say we are cousins and we seem to have been close in the past.” You ask Arc noticing how the family resemblance doesn’t really seem to be there at least hair wise. It seems a lot of people have blonde hair, then why the hell is mine blue? “Ah, so getting right to that point, hunh? Well, you are right we aren’t direct cousins. More like distant relatives really but I’ve always called you cousin and you never had a problem with it. Your dad is the Lord-Emperor, well his father’s father’s brother’s daughter’s son’s son is my father and as you can probably tell the blue hair gets bred out after a couple of generations. My dad is the Count of Cigala which lies on the eastern coast. Felicia here is my real cousin and is the daughter of my dad’s sis. The two of us met you at some lame noble party years ago at the palace. We wound up stealing the big cake without anyone noticing it by tying up the maid that was supposed to bring it to celebration. Good times.” He recounts for you.“Speaking of good times.” You add. “Mind telling me a bit more about who I am exactly I’m still struggling here.”“Hmm… well let’s see. Your honorable, a good leader, always had a mind for the martial stuff, you never were much like your father, he is always holding diplomatic affairs for the nobles and going to parties and stuff, you were always more of the rough and tumble sort of guy, a real bro, you also really like jokes and I still remember that time when we tricked all of Durnburry castle into thinking that an alligator had taken up residence in the moat. Boy were they surprised when it turned out to just be a baby wyvern. Bwahahaha.” He chortles as he tells you of good times.1/3
>>36865473“You were also always a very kind soul.” Felecia pipes up. “Even when you beat up bullies you never did so in a way that would leave any permanent damage. That’s how you earned the respect of the whole Appletree gang, those orphans were such the pickpockets and scoundrels before you turned them around by knocking out their leader. I’m sure he is still smarting over it.”“I beat up a whole gang of orphans?” You question, yeash what type of man are you if you go around beating up children.“Yeah but that was years ago, you were what, eleven at the time? And Woodstrom holds no ill will towards you. Heck, if it weren’t for you he and his crew might have grown up to be scummy bandits instead of what they are today. Besides it’s not like you did it all by yourself Agrias knocked out just as many if not more of them as you did.” Arc continues.There is a brief pause for a few moments as you walk along the village of Rhama coming clearly into view now. It should be only another few minutes now before you get there.“Um…” you pipe up. “I didn’t want to ask before, but earlier when you were talking about our family. Why did you trail off like that at the end?” Arc’s smile disappears from his face. “Ah, so you’ve forgotten about that too…” he says sullenly. Felecia excuses herself and runs off to catch up with the rest of the group as you lag behind with Arc.2/3
>>36865538“Well cousin, I was afraid I’d have to be the one to tell you this. Years ago back when we were little, your Father’s brother the Duke of Anderbury, Lord Jarvis, Marshall of The Red Company. He staged a coup for the throne. You were still young and your Uncle could see the writing on the wall, If he didn’t eliminate the problem before it grew he would never be the Lord-Emperor. So he planned to assassinate you and your father in the same night. He hired a group of assassins known as the Black Hand to kill both of you in the night. Your father, when the assassins came for him his bodyguards saved his life, but when they came for you, your mother was putting you to bed. They guards managed to save you but by the time they got there…”You understand the memory is coming back to you. The gentle face of your mother, her white hair, as she sang you a lullaby. Curtains moving, a cloaked figure with a knife entering from the window. Blood, so much blood. And mother... Tears come to your eyes as you clutch your head.“I’m sorry you had to hear it from me Rowan. In the end your father was furious, he wanted to hang his own brother, but something in him wouldn’t allow him to do so. Your father was always a kind man but he was always just, it was your mother who would have turned the other cheek, she was always such a peaceful soul perhaps that is why he only sentenced your Uncle to life in the dungeon instead of outright executing him.” Arc finishes as you enter the town. “Now come on, let’s get to the inn, the others are probably waiting for us.”The two of you walk the rest of the way to the inn in silence as you try to take in everything Arc just told you. Who you were in the past and how that will shape your future.3/3
>>36865651You enter the inn and are greeted by the faces of your friends, Agrias is off to the side talking to the owner of the inn probably about getting rooms for the night, Felecia is over there with her but she isn’t partaking in the conversation, the Multi-knight and Christmas knights are off at the bar. Who do you go see?>Agrias and the inn keeper>Felecia>The Knights>Write In4/3
>>36865682The knights, even though i want to waifu agrias
>>36865682The Knights. We don't know much about them yet.

>>36865772>>36865776>>36865891>>36865917Arabian Kniiiights like Arabian DaaaaaysWriting
>>36865682You decide to head over to the bar and chat with the knights, you know you’ll need a stiff drink after all the things that Arc just told you about your family. Especially with that bit of memory that you just remembered. You approach the bar and see Multi-knight and the Two Christmas Knights, all of them still have their helmets on and no one has ordered a drink yet. “Ah, my lord. We were waiting for you, come sit down we have much to talk about seeing as you have lost your memory. Barkeep, a round if you will.” The bartender happily obliges and begins filling some mugs. You sit down next to Multi-knight the inn is mostly empty but you see a couple of people mulling about the bar area has a few other patrons in it but all in all the place feels rather empty for this late in the afternoon, perhaps the bandits are plaguing this town much worse than originally anticipated.“Now, you’ve probably forgotten much so I will tell you as much as I can. You probably already know from the others that you are Rowan, First Prince of Atea and heir to the throne. I am Mark, one of your father’s house guard, I’ve been entrusted with your safety during this trip. Don’t be fooled by what Agrias tells you I am your bodyguard here, I know she is your childhood friend and all but we can only humor her so much without putting your life in peril. Red over here is Earnest and Green is Ornholt, they are my knight-apprentices and are also here for your benefit. Originally you wanted to go with just the four of you but I’m glad your father insisted that you bring us three with you I fear how today’s fight would have gone had we not been there to defend you.”1/2
>>36866531The bartender brings over the beer and Earnest removes his helm and takes a sip. Mark and Ornholt however… seem to be drinking through their helmets… “So My Lord, is there anything you wanted to talk about?”>Talk about the prisoners you captured>Talk about how you plan to assault the bandit stronghold>Talk about Agrias and how she says she is your guard>Write inRoll 1d100 for alcohol tolerance best of 32/2

>>36866614>>36866691>>36866731>>36866845My fans fail at hive minding. WritingProbably last post of the night computer is acting up again so I moved to my tablet. Expect quality to drop.
>>36866550"So," you say taking a sip of your beer."why don't you guys remove your helmets? Surely I know you outside of the mission?""Actually my Lord you are only partially right you know Earnest outside of the mission. Ornholt and I have only known you for about a week now. As such our code dictates we shall not remove our helmets lest we die in combat for you. No need for our faces to haunt your conscience should we fall by a mistake on your part." Says Mark and Ornholt nods in agreement."Oh" you look down into your beer for a moment before taking another sip. "Well then, why does Agrias insist that she is my bodyguard if she isn't.""Oh she is your bodyguard, sire. Just not officially, she still has a ways to go before she could be considered one of the royal guard but even since you were both young she always said that she would protect you when she grew up. After certain events that took place in your past, she really helped you overcome a period of sadness in your life. Besides Arc, she is probably one of your closest friends.""How about the stronghold?" You ask "do we have a plan of attack. I want to make sure these bandits never harm another one of my people again.""We don't have a plan of attack yet, my Lord. But one of the prisoners said that he will trade information of its whereabouts in exchange for his freedom." Mark finishes."Hmmm... I'll think about it. Thank you Mark." You say as you finish off your beer. ====Calling it here for the night. Will stick around for Q&A.
>>36867491theres gonna be a magic triangle right? What are the other countries
>>36867491Is this going to be happening tomorrow or will it wait till Monday?
>>36867541Yes. The magic triangle will appear when mages do a couple of threads from now. Next thread will probably see us getting a healer unit but no mage.As for the other countries they can be found >>36861789Along with the first thread.Also if someone could archive for me I would be very grateful. I can do it myself but this tablet is lousy.
>>36867680I will post on my Twitter if I plan on running tomorrow but more likely than not. No.I will probably run Sunday but if not then I will 100% run on Monday night.
>>36867719Thanks for running.
>>36867719how long do you plan on running this?
>>36867805As long as it takes to finish the plot really or until people stop showing up. If it takes a few months so be it. If it takes 2 years so be it. I expect it to take roughly 80 to 90 threads though if that is any good indication. Also don't worry about achieving guys I'll take care of it.
>>36867855Damn it, the holidays made me miss it but I'm happy my suggested name made it.Great read though Sigil.
>>36865772Pretty sure that was OP's plan from the start.>>36867855Keep at it, man.
Remember we are practically Ironmaning this. Don't be afraid to use the Jeigan.
>>36869558Thanks for the vote of confidence. When I reread my thread all I can see are my grammar mistakes.>>36873163Plan? What plan? Agrias is as waifu able as any other female in this quest. You just only met two girls so far and one of them has cousin-zoned you and the other is your childhood friend.>>36874437Yes. Feel free to abuse Mark. You'll need him to survive these first few combatant sessions at the start here. But by no means is he a Jeigan. His stat growths aren't terrible and he is a great knight.All in all thanks for following guys. Gonna try running tonight at 7 if possible. Will post to Twitter with details.
>>36875900Childhood friends always end up with the man. Or die terribly... Which route will it be?
>>36875967Laughs maniacally. wouldn't you like to know.
