Ogre Battle Extra! Zenobia Revisited (Part 1)

We'll get back to the main game soon enough, but I realized something last night: I haven't been revisiting these maps and picking up stuff I missed! So here's a couple things worth going back for:

Ogre Battle 22: Tis Only a Flesh Wound

...well, this is a mess. Canopus is trying to draw off enemy traffic while Aisha and Gilbert get into position, but he's largely being ignored. So we ALL swarm towards Gares. May as well make this as chaotic as possible!

Ogre Battle 21: Goetic? Really?

Going by the colored flashes I can tell I was wrong about the Gryphon's group-attack. But the damage went up, and Canopus fends off a Raven/Faerie unit with ease. And then, the mermaids attack FLAIL. He wins, but not as decisively as I'd like. I'll have to watch that- if our base is taken we have to do the stage over, so we'll need to make sure FLAIL survives. I have nobody else to pull because I deployed Gilbert to take an island town. But there is a return item, so I buy one so I can pull a quick swap if FLAIL loses.

But I got careless and Canopus dies fighting the Ravens. We wipe them out, but I have to dump a Revive on his unit real quick so they don't abandon town and return to base. A bunch of stuff goes down: FLAIL wins another fight, Warren levels up but needs to drop 4 more points of ALI to become a Mage, Canopus continues to take a horrible beating but soldiers on.

Ogre Battle 20: Promotions, Recruitments, Cephalopods

Aisha is a Priest, the next step up from Cleric. She gets three healing spells per fight instead of two. She has a pair of Mermaids, who I've moved to the back row so they get a targeted Blizzard attack each, and Knights. She's also an expensive unit at 7200 Goth to deploy. But we're going to give it a shot. Aisha goes up one path, Landis the other. Maybe we can get their attention and give Warren and Canopus a break. And I've still got some more deployment slots, so I can call some backup in a hurry if I have to.

Ogre Battle Part 19: Island Avalon

Today we go to the island of Avalon!

Not a big area. And the best part?

The shop town is right here, next to my base!
