PostSubject: Are you up for a CHALLENGE?!    Wed Jan 04, 2012 12:20 am

Now, I've beaten OB64 about 15 times. So, needless to say, it's a little easy now!

So I thought about challenges to make the game tough again. Anyway, this topic will
be used to suggest new challenging play through's and general chat about the topic.

Idea 1:

No advancement play through. Meaning that you can not change the class of any of your
characters. Exceptions being those who do during battle, or because of the main story line.

Got any other ideas?

Oh i like this idea! [it would certainly reduce the amount of time i spend playing 'dress up' with my characters.]

I just thought up of this one this morning. No training mode allowed. You're going to have to rely on the battlefield and hope your units level up in there or just use champion statuettes.

Paladins and Dianas come equipped with virtue weapons by default. Not to mention Angel Knights if you are willing to go through the hassle of getting them. And of course, Platinum Dragons and Bahamuts.

Honestly it wouldn't be that difficult, stats are the main determining factor in how a character performs, so if you groom them properly the game will seem just as easy.

Did this on accident on my first playthrough before I knew how to access the training option.

If you want a fun (and perhaps irritating) challenge do a beast/golem playthorough. Where each unit has to include two beast/golem characters in addition to its leader.

Hmmmm, one could go the "Glass Magnus chanllenge."

It's a rewarding challenge that only lasts the first 3 chapters.

Basically, Magnus, and also Leia/Dio can benefit from having better growths then everyone else due to their automatic story promotions. So the challenge is to NOT use Magnus/Leia/Dio (You can stick them all in one unit) until Chapter 4. After which part you can level them normally, thus creating super powerful killing machines (especially Magnus, he'll be on Ankiseth-like growths from Lv3-4 and up Razz)

One could do a Legion-associated challenge, as well.

Or 1rst class only challenge, now that would be quite a hassle. Beasts/Dragons would look awesome since they auto-promote xD

ha, I got another one. The family and friends playthrough. In short you can only have units based off people you know. Their class would be based off their personality.

Its kinda silly, but it could be fun.

Oh I do that every game xD

I rename EVERY non-Hero unit in my army to somebody I know.

I usually have a few premade units everytime in mind every time I start a game xD

Makes the generic units a lot more fun that way! ^_^

I have always wanted to try a play through using only named story characters. This includes Troi, Asnabel, etc.

The first few missions would be hard, especially the first where you don't have access to training, but after you get about 5 or 6 you should be able to pull it off.

If I could get an emulator to work on my work computer I might actually try this.

Haha wihtout training it's easy. You just have to keep using all your units. But basic equipment is harder, and no class promotion (knight->paladin) would be even harder.

Let's set up a ruleset and promise to play the game that way, so we can se how good we can be!

Now I would have loved to see that!


Oh you know another idea is like the pokemon one. Once a character faints or dies, you can't revive them and must
kick them from your army.

In all my plays I don't think I've lost more then 10 people. I think most were my first play through.

I really like this idea. It could let me make new units out of the non used characters. It could also feel like being the red army(you know since their units never have a huge boss other than the main boss). also, I have never tried to leave out magnus for the first three chapters, and this could give me an excuse to finally do that.

7 units maximum

Leaving one unit to guard home base, use only 6 units to defeat all who stand before you. Your teams start getting buff pretty quickly.

restrict yourself to the "weaker" classes only. For females you use dragon tamers/masters. For males you use ninjas. faires and gremlins are also welcome.


Or you could do the whole zombie apocalypse theme. Use zombies exclusively 'unless they get transfromed by an attack", and except the unit leaders. Unit leaders can be vampires/doll masters/enchanters/or angel knights. Beginning of the game would be hard, and quite possibly the end as well. Only relief would be if you could manage to get an angel knight.
