I guess we are logging, so here goes.

Mode: Hard/Classic

I'm currently on Chapter 14 and have about 22 hours...but that's not including the progress that wasn't saved from losing or restarting saves. I'd say, with that include, I have 24-28 hours clocked it. Most of my time was spent on Parley battles, Challenges, and Para/Xenolouges. It's not so much because I don't enjoy the story (which is rather engaging) as it is because battling is so much fun and I really enjoy the side missions. That, and it's a great way for me to level my weaker units.

Casualties: None

Social Li- I mean Support: ...Too many too count, but Miriel and my Main Unit are married, as well as Sumia and Chrom. Sully and Frederick are also married, and they make quite the pair in battle. Still regretting not marrying Tharja, but the Supports between Miriel and my child are pretty entertaining.

Also, my MU's child is yet another mage! hooray. I immediately reclassed her to a Tactician since I already use 4 other mages in my main team usually, so I threw her a Bronze Sword and...things are slow. Her magic is exceptional, but her swordsmanship is pretty inadequite, and since her mother is a mage as well, the pairing between them makes for some good, albeit unsurprising results. She doesn't pair with her father often, but I'll be sure to change that.

Despite the fact that I was one of the first ones in the thread to get the game, you guys'll probably have the game finished before I do; I've been spending a lot of time doing the small stuff between missions.

---

Oh, and Quincy, I forgot to answer your question. They can't remarry as when the characters are defeated in combat, they aren't always dead, and usually they aren't. As such, the bond between the two is not broken, and they will remain married.

I'm on Chapter 10

Only Chrom and my avatar have full support

I have not advanced or changed any ranks

Casulties/Retires: Valke, Miriel, Virion, Gregor.

I've acquired Mist,Florina, Erika, and Ameilia (though I don't use them) I have 410 renown

I'm really sad about losing Gregor, I lost him by complete accident, and he's the only character that's died so far that I actually liked, the rest of them were on my low tier (I really disliked Virion and Miriel, so it was kinda ironic they died together in the same mission).

My streetpass team includes: My Avatar, Chrom, Frederick, Sully, Stahl, Kelfam, Lon'qu, Nowi, Libra, and Tharja
If your avatar a girl? If not, then you should really pair Chrom with one of the girls because if he's not paired with anyone after chapter 12, he'll automatically be paired with Sumia. (Since she has highest priority)

I've already finished the game actually. Normal was much too easy. (Donnel was pretty much invincible, lol) Felt like a lot of time was actually spent recruiting the children.

I think the game is definitely on par with FE7. FE4 did the whole marriage/children thing a lot better, and the story was much more impactful in my mind. Everything else though was excellent. My only critique is the limited customization choices for your unit.

Good, now start a new game and go Classic/Lunatic; I'm sure it'll be the easy enough.

I reclassed Fredrick after getting Lv.5 Luna abillity. GREAT DECISION. He is getting 20-30 XP per killing blow like regular units and leveling up like mad. Sad that he can only use axes for a while, I just got a second Silver Lance (the first belonging to Freddy) [also, Luna and Critical Hit triggered at the SAME TIME during his first mission as a Wyvern Rider.]

Sumia hit Lv.20 -> Promoted to Dark Flier

Healers get way more XP for rescues, so... if you don't use rescues fore anything else... You could spam them to get a healer to Lv10 and then reclass them. (then they can heal and attack)

Although I appreciate the advice, I would rather like to avoid any spoilers along the way, if you would be so kind. It's kinda ok though, Sumia is the one I was kinda working on with him.

Small Update:

Chrom is now a Grandmaster, I've acquired Marth, and Donnel and Khellam are now A Rank.

^Sorry about that. Figured you'd like to know in case you were gunning for a certain pairing. But I guess it's your intention to go through the game blindly.

No way, dude. Only way I'll ever try lunatic is to choose casual mode along with it. After playing the headache that is FE5, I can only imagine how difficult lunatic mode is. I enjoy the FE series, but I'm not a hardcore player.

Honestly, the thing that made it too easy was the fact that you could abuse the free DLC map. Speaking of DLC, it's seems Micaiah is now available for download. Didn't realize till now, but there is no light-magic in this game, no?

If Chrom has zero support points with all possible Wives, he marries someone else....

Spoiler:
A random farmer girl


according to a wiki.

Edit-------------

I married Kellam and Marribelle. I used Kellam to tank for Maribell while she was leveling up, and their Supports are adorable. Although their child will be a mess! Maybe a Dark Knight or something.

I've been using Donnel and man he is a monster. I've reclassed him twice (Villager-->Fighter-->Mercenary) and he is absurdly strong even when using weak weapons. He's definitely staying in my main teams.

I've also been taking my time with this game and doing a lot of the side stuff/grinding members. I haven't decided who's gonna be in my main teams aside from Chrom, My unit, and Donnel. There are so many likable characters that are great!

...My MU's daughter is stronger than my MU, and he was reclassed twice. It's a little scary. I ended up maxing her level and making her into a Grandmaster while my MU is still a tactician (mainly because he was reclassed twice). Well, it's not so surprising, I try to keep my MU out of battles because of how strong he is, and there's no real worry about him becoming underleveled or too weak.

The children's parents will be censored for spoiler purposes, as well as one of the children's names.

My children have basically forced themselves onto my team (except for Laurent, because that would make him my sixth magic character. Love ya' son), and they're a force to be reckoned with. Morgan, my daughter, keeps around Raiden, an upgraded Levin Sword, Excalibur X, an upgraded Steel Sword (it would have been Excalibur III, but that was too long a name), and magic, just in case. She can go it alone and can take quite a bit of damage. So she's probably my best unit, especially when paired with her father.

Then there's Luci, who carries around several swords, often pairing with her father. These two tend to deal a lot of damage since they team attack alot, although Luci doesn't have the greatest defense.

Kjella, who is a knight, is probably as good as Kellam when it comes to defense, and she's incredibly strong. I'd say that she might even be able to take more damage than Kellam, especially when paired with her father, who guards her a lot (but her mother deals the most damage), which makes for great wall tactics...unless mages are involved.

Then there's Laurent. Poor Laurent.

"I want to make babies today!" -- Fire Emblem Awakening

I haven't gotten there yet, but I think I am close. My pairings were random, but now I am planning each child's class based on the pairing I did choose.

Both of my Avatar children have no choice but to be mages, which is great --but I am swimming in mages right now. Both of Chrom's children will be archers, becase I litterally have 20 awesome bows and only Virion can use them.

Hmm...I mean..it was pretty much Virion as my archer for the whole game so it's kinda hard to break away from him and use
Spoiler:
Tharja's daughter
who is also an archer. Any thoughts?

Idk what my next class for Donnel should be!

Well while playing the Third Map in the Legend of Yore DLC Pack I managed to kill of 3 of my team in one match (a fair amount of bad luck, and one big mistake). I lost Donnel (meh) Tharja (awww) and Lon' qu (WHY GOD WHY!). I also managed to get Cherche killed as soon as I gained her.

Ricken is now a Sage, Chrom a Great Lord, and Sully a Paladin. She is also now Stahl's wife. (Chrom has also married Sumia)

I managed to beat the Legends of Yore DLC pack, and aquired a few more of the bonus box battles (Lute, Mia, Matthew, Moulder and Serra)

My renown is up to 720.

Paralogue 10 is the worst thing, and I don't understand what the devs were thinking with it. I assumed the character you recruit in it would be recruited whether they physically talked to the NPC or not, since I talked to the character myself - but NOPE. If you kill the boss before that happens and happen to hit A once you lose out on getting that character for absolutely no reason.

Little Baby Ricken became a Dark Knight on a whim. DANG! Ricken can go off on his own and slaughter everything. He can take many, many hits. Because of Focus, a mage ability, his critical hit rate is amazing! It only activates when he is alone, but as a DK he can totally do that do problem.

Lucina became an Archer to grow her AMAZING skill and speed stats. She was promoted to Bow Knight at Lv.12 because she was CAPPED in skill. (well, close) As a Bow Knight she can use Parallel Falcion again.

I didn't Notice Parallel Facion has MT 12 and can be used to recover health. GOOD thing I made her a bow knight who can actually use swords.

Lucina has gotten Aether and Critical Hit at the same time so often it is crazy. Also, have you noticed paired-up characters getting critical hits very, very often? Several of my weapons were forged for crit and most of my units are pair with their spouses 100% of the time. It just seems that they have been very lucky in the last few missions.

They missions to get your kids look so high level, it looks like endgame stuff. If you leveled up enough to do them before the main story, wouldn't you be very overpowered?

I grinded some using the DLC maps, but I don't think I was overpowered - I still had to struggle in a few of the main plot missions. Anyway, I couldn't deal with not having all of the characters so I started my game over and I'm up to Chapter 5, and I'm repeating the pairings I got on my first time through.

@snowpoint quincy: Oh wow that's a great idea for Lucina. I'll make sure to switch her to Bow Knight later. I did the same to Ricken (I call him Rickey). I had him as a dark knight up until he learned that one ability that gives him 50% HP back after he kills a unit and switched to Sage.

I've been using Noire over Virion now and have her as a bow knight. My Nowi is a wyvern rider and I'm about to switch Cherche into another class. She's a wyvern lord~

Idk what to make MU though...

Well you have Ignis, so you might want to consider a class that takes advantage of that.

I was thinking of Dark Knight because MU's proficient with swords and tomes.

I FIANLLY got Morgan (female). She was a real struggle to get. Lissa is the father so she started as a Cleric. She died on the first round, so I had to reset. The second attempt I had to clear all four sides of Morgan with Flyers to keep her safe.

She has Ignis and Tomeflaire. Morgan and Owain are going to be Magic users because both their parents are.

Going to be a blast Leveling Morgan and Owain together as brother and sister Casters.

So I've started on my second playthrough. Went with Hard/Classic since I felt normal was not really much of a challenge. Made the My Unit a girl (with a magic build) this time and will probably pair her with Chrom just to see how much certain scenes change.

Plan on using Stahl, Virion, Cordelia, Gregory, and couple other units I completely ignored my first time through the game.

Morgan and Owain started as a Level 10 Cleric and Myrmidon, respectivly. After playing the free DLC map 3 times with only Morgan and Owain paired up they Became Level 10 Tacticians. Now I am leveling them up as Dark Mages, then Sorcerers.

Remember, Tactitains get 50% XP Bonus when Paired Up. So Avatar's Children should become Tacticians first, then they can level they class you REALLY want that much faster. And because Avatar children can be almost any class, they can grind for skill a lot faster than anyone else.

XXXXXXXXXXX EDIT - OMG XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Level 10 Dark Mage Owain and Level 7 Dark Mage Morgan do a challenge battle at the Milla Tree. The monsters were all promoted units. Morgan took was in the lead paired with Owain and all else fell back. MorganActually Killed every monster on the map by just sitting in one spot and waiting to be attacked. She went from Lv. 7 to Lv. 20 in one battle.

In the course of one afternoon Morgan went from a Level 10 Cleric (how she was generated) to a Level 10 Tactician. To a Level 20 Dark Mage!!!

I did NOT save because my Main Team need the XP WAY MORE than she does. I am going to remove the XP ability from them to slow them down. This is something to remember for Lunatic Mode though.

So about halfway through the game on Hard difficulty and honestly the first couple chapters were probably the most annoying. Past that, nothing too insanely difficult.

I have Nowi/Vaike (going for Berserker), Olivia/Henry, Kellam/Panne, Chrom/My Unit, Donnel/Lissa and Sumia/Frederick paired so far.

Also went ahead and purchased the 3 available DLC characters. I wished they would have kept the characters original classes though. It's weird to see Micaiah as a Dark Mage, but I guess since there is no light magic in this game they have to work with what they have.
