I don't know if it has already been asked, and if it has, sorry...
Anyway, what are you planning to do with Zalmo? I always tought it could be a good character to play...
Maybe (if the battle remains the same) it could be recruited if he reach the critical status in the second battle where you encounter him (the one with delita).
what do you think? it could be a good idea or not?

well there is currently no more menu sprite space. but zalmo's skills will be too good to let him join. hes going to have an upgrade to his "white-aid" skillset which will include magic barrier, esunaga, and the versions of the oracle skills that he can actually use. i already know that he LOVES casting mbarrier and will usually try to use that instead of doing anything else... well it will be interesting anyway.

I hate him. I wish he was never in the game, NPC or playable character.

well i guess someone had to be the one to brand ramza a heretic officially tho he doesn't seem 100% crucial to the story, i suppose someone else could easily fill that spot. but i hadn't planned on changing that so far.

I always tought that it could be a PC...
He doesn't know about lucavi, is just a puppet in the church hand...
Or i remember wrong?

Nope you're right...

I don't see a need to make him playable though

hes one of those, caught in the crossfire... devoted to the church he so believes in he is mislead and it costs him his life.

Hmm, hes a butt ugly character... perhaps he could be completely replaced with one of my new characters as someone you get after the fight at the church, which could then be re-vamped completely to be a much more epic battle.

Zozma

but whoooo..... you've seen my cast of special characters.. hmmmm

jimmyjw88

Hmm....Are all the special characters been used? Is there any left for this spot?

Candidates:

Sorceress Teitra [a guest thru most of chapter 1 and 2 story battles in chapter 4]
Sniper Melodia [3 story battles and a DD random]
Divine Knight Meliadoul [unused for story battles]
Valkyrie Monica [2 story battles]
Arch Knight Ignis (recruitable) [appears in 3 story battles already]
Cross Knight Golagros
Paladin Beatrix (recruitable) [Hasnt been used yet]
Brawler Tamara [Hasnt been used yet]
Arch Witch Balmafula (recruitable) [Wasn't she originally hired by the church to spy on Delita?]
Terror Knight Miang [2 story battles chapter 2 and 4]

The best candidate in my opinion would be Beatrix as I have not managed to find a decent spot to include her in the game so far

jimmyjw88

Ooo....Yes!! Beatrix!! That battle would be epic!! DO IT!!
xD
But I hope that battle would be hard as its Beatrix. Make it that we may (high rate) lose if the strategy did not plan properly and execute accordingly.

Zozma

I would imagine so!

shes the 3rd of 3 spellblade types in the game

Shock
Thunder Slash
Stock Break
Climhazzard (AoE2)
---

Plus shell have white magic secondary (ill probably give her short charge or non charge for those)

jimmyjw88

Yes, make it hard but not too hard till impossible to win. Just hard enough for us to lose the battle or for us to lose something in exchange of her; something that's as valueable as her.

Beatrix is awesome, will she have exclusive weapon on her?

Zozma

Save the Queen

if you all recall most weapons are rare, StQ is one of a kind, the only knight sword that isnt one of a kind is the defender

and back gate of Lezalia is kinda early for a unit to have a Save the Queen, so just imagine how raped your gonna be if your not careful lol

jimmyjw88

Do you think sacrificing one of the great party member (special characters) for the exchange of Beatrix would make the battle more interesting and challenging? And this battle, the exchange of Beatrix with another great special character will affect and change the aftermath, the course and the outcome in the future battles and stories, perhaps? Making the player to make the choice wisely.
Is it possible?
