🠞 { What type of game is it? }

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is a turn-based tactical role-playing game that also contains elements of social simulation and time management. You do not have to have played previous Fire Emblem games in order to enjoy Three Houses.

🠞 { Tell me more! }

Fire Emblem: Three Houses takes place on the continent of Fódlan. The landmass is divided into three rival nations who are now at peace: the Adrestian Empire to the south and west, the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus to the north, and the Leicester Alliance to the east. A key power in Fódlan is the church of Seiros, based at Garreg Mach Monastery at the continent's center. Crests, which are magical sigils passed down through families, play a large role in the continent's history and politics. The series's titular "Fire Emblem" is represented as one such special Crest.

Players take on the role of Byleth, the main character; however, they may be renamed, and whether they are male or female is decided upon by players as well. A mercenary by trade, Byleth unexpectedly finds themselves enrolled in the Officers Academy of Garreg Mach Monastery as a teacher. There, they must choose one of the three school houses to guide, each aligned to a different nation of Fódlan: the Black Eagles led by Edelgard, imperial princess and heir to the Adrestian throne; the Blue Lions, commanded by Prince Dimitri of the Kingdom; and the Golden Deer led by Claude, heir to the Alliance's leading family.











🠞 { Is there any DLC? }

Wave 1: Officers Academy outfits for male and female Byleth available at game launch.

Wave 2: Additional Auxiliary battle maps, helpful in-game support items, and more will be released by October 31, 2019.

Wave 3: Additional quests and costumes, plus a free update, will be released by December 31, 2019.

Wave 4: New story content, with additional playable characters, locations and more, plus a free update, will be released by April 30, 2020.

Wow, what great timing! :MomoShook: Have you watched the little introduction videos for each house? Maybe that will help you decide. I personally played the Blue Lions on my first playthrough!

I've been wanting the game since it came out but I had to push it back for other things but I'm going to make it a priority this time! :sejeongcry:

Yeah, I was interested in the Black Eagles or the Blue Lions. I was planning to go for the Black Eagles bc Edelgard was luring me in more than Dimitri but I saw how she was one of the most hated characters and now I'm :teehee:

I'd suggest starting the game when you can and decide in the introductory chapters which class speaks to you! you're allowed to roam the monastery and speak with the house leaders and students of each house in order to get to know them. Pick which house appeals to you most :) I was at first dead set on picking black eagles but when I started the game, I realised I really connected with Claude and the deers and I liked the fact the Golden Deer were kinda the 'outcast' class so I picked them instead. no regrets!

Have my prayers been answered?
Since I'm too broke to buy a switch and the game, I've been watching game plays as well as reading some theories about the game. I've found this very interesting discussion whole browsing through Tumblr.

I've completed the BL route and am currently on GD. Both my brother and uncle have played this game, though, and I've seen a lot of what happens in the BE-E route. :TzuyuKek:

I intend on playing every route ... eventually!

Yep, the Church route appeals to me least because of the lack of lord for the majority of the game, I did hear Seteth is an amazing unit and I do love Shamir! so I'm sure we'll still find enjoyment in it :hehe:

and I'm not sure how DLC will work, I hope it allows us to replay our completed saves but we'll see!

nice! BL is my favorite route, with Golden Deer coming in a very close second :heartublob: BE-E route was kinda rushed but there still is enjoyment to be had, it's the only route that makes you see Edelgard for who she is rather than some cold villain. I also intend to play them all, I can't get enough lol

omg i've been meaning to ask y'all: who have you s-supported? or who do you plan to s-support?

i'm such a sucker for dimitri and s-supported him in my blue lions route like my life depended on it. then i recruited felix in my golden deer route and intend on s-supporting him. when i get around to black eagles route, i'm s-supporting hubert (although ferdinand is so tempting ack). not sure who i'll s-support in church route yet though...

I S ranked Claude in GD, Dimitri in BL & Petra in BE :hehe:

I really want to S rank Felix but I got spoiled on his S support so may go for Seteth next. Dimitri's was by far the cutest!
