Though I'm surprised you didn't sink a few orbs trying to get Tomato man.

The odds are too bad. It's not that I dislike Eirika, it's just that I don't need that many. I'll give it another shot when he's on a better banner.

Chucked 160 orbs at the new banner and got:
1x Sharena
1x Alfonse

Noteworthy 4 stars:
3x Sothe (one +atk one to build, two disappointments to fodder off)
2x Klein (it's always nice to see him)
2x Soren (both with terrible banes, but hey, finally more merges!)
3x Lukas (I'm not sure why I'd ever need three but if I want to get serious about building one, I now have a +def, -spd one)
4x Niles (uh, Iceberg for everyone?)

Maybe I should see if I have something like a +atk Niles and build one sometime.

Blah, more eggs.. However, Catria looks like a good unit, Kagero has an unique movetype-weapon combo, Sharena exists and Alfonse has some real meme potential, so I'm going to try to get atleast one of them.

Preferably Alfonse, because he makes me laugh.

Xander: Our weapons are!
Reinhardt: Magic!
Camus: Loyalty!
Alfonse: SPOON!

Seriously, it might tick me off if I don't get him.

Kinda happy I got male Morgan despite many people saying he's underwhelming. He can take out Grima with only a little assistance, meaning my original team is often the only team I need on L7. The other teammembers are Cherche (until she maxes HM), a healer (rotating based on who is closests to hitting a HM milestone) and whatever blue tome/lance/bow/dagger unit is closests to getting some HM feathers. Cherche and Morgan do most of the work though.

If you don't use it, you lose it. That goes for about anything but knowing how to ride a bicycle. And well, if you don't really learn in the first place... Yeah, I think there may be more people like that. On the other hand, social awkward people can now make friends more easily thanks to the internet. On the other other hand, end up in the wrong echochamber and you could end up with some very weird ideas.

I don't drive, but I do use public transportation often and the drivers in this area are definitely a bit too comfortable on the road when they only have to share it with a few people. One of my friends from the city came here late in the evening once for a sleepover and was certain the busride here was going to be her last.

Speaking of public transportation, I have a big trip ahead of me because I apparently have to justify myself before the grand council of anime geeks for going against one of them and fighting for volunteer's rights for fair compensation. It's a two hour trip there and the one back may be even longer, because one slight delay means getting stuck at a station for ~55 minutes.

That sad, the whole things is hilarious, because there are so many misconcentions about me on their end. Some of them picture me as a blunt teenager (I'm a blunt adult, thank you very much!), others assume my "twin sister" is me (but my own mother made the same mistake, so I shouldn't be too harsh), and it seems many don't know what I actually do because I don't paste my face on everything. On the up side, the fact that I'm relatively unknown means that they're not aware of who my allies are, meaning they accidently decided on a meeting spot that's not as neutral as they think it is. Soon, they will learn not to underestimate the connections of the most powerful knitting club! (I mean seriously, most of our members are upper echelon geeks - we we can work with more than just literal strings if we want to.)

Nerd politics are entertaining, if nothing else.

(Though I could be in serious trouble despite having good back-up.)

My Elise with Savage Blow 6 was the MVP there. She carefully chipped away at their HP while the dancers and Reinhardt kept her save. Once the enemy was softened up enough, Reinhardt, also supported by the dancers, went in for the kill.

Oh, and I got a male Morgan. He's going to be part of Team buffbot Eirika.

I just realised it took FE Heroes longer to 'make' a Finn than it did my sister. My nephew was born in early November.

Thought that +8 Reinhardt that joined me earlier today was yours. Good to know I was right.

I set Alm (with Falchion upgrade) as my lead. It seemed like the appropriate thing to do. Not to mention that he can smash through nearly anything when he's at full health. I hope people have fun using him.

The guild's barbeque was ruined... The food was ordered a week in advance, there was even a reminder send on the morning of. Then evening came. 19:30 - nothing, 20:00 - nothing, 20:30 - still nothing. One very concerned call later and we get a "Wait, that was today?"

Sure, most people don't go out in -5 degrees celsius weather to barbeque, but it's tradition. It's fun to huddle around the grill and food somehow tastes better if you had to prepare it in the freezing cold.

Indonesian-Chinese take-out was ordered around 21:00 and a little before 22:00 we finally had food. Well, I had rice and some greasy veggies that didn't really agree with me, but atleast many of the others liked this restaurant's food. I can't help but be disappointed though. I was really looking forward to the salads and these supposedly great veggie wraps even the non-vegeratians who had gotten catering from the butcher before were looking forward to.

Teach me how to use a bow

In Zelda or IRL?

It is, it's fairly old, but it's always been well taken care off and it mostly sat in storage the past decade. One of our best archers actually has a very similar bow (same riser and limbs, but different sight and so on) in a darker silver.

In case anyone's wondering, this is my bow and it's mine:

It really feels like I've come a long way. A year ago, when I tried it for the first time, it was actually a bit too heavy and people thought it bad idea. But I trained, building up to it, and I can hold it drawn and steady for 6+ seconds now. And it feels like I gained the approval of the former owner. He went from 'you can't do this' to 'you can do better' whenever a shot isn't all that great. I even sort of 'won' yesterday. We were shooting Christmas ornaments again, and when you hit them just right/wrong, they fall to the floor and bounce away. That happened to his, so he aimed at my target instead. Our arrows hit at the exact same moment, and it looked like they both pierced the bauble, but upon closer inspection his was half a centimeter off and mine hit true.

Okay, it wasn't actually a competition, but my arrow hit and his didn't, so I want to believe that's a win for me.

300 orbs, I got:
1x Shiro (+atk, - hp)
2x Dorcas (one of them +def, -spd)
2x Jaffar (don't care)

I should have stopped after those first two rounds that gave me an excellent Dorcas, that Shiro and a 4* +atk Reinhardt. It only went downhill from there.

Oh well, lesson learned, I guess. I hope New Year Takumi's fortune still holds true when I'm not greedy.

I'm really hoping Soren's new tome will grant some sort of Brave effect to mimic his Adept skill. It's what he deserves. However... I can't be the only one who thinks the name of the tome is rather mean, right? Wind's Brand? Seriously?

mediocre luck

Sorry to hear that. I'd lent you my NY Takumi, but he's busy getting me more 5 stars. I just threw 20 orbs at the VG banner and got my first normal Celica. Thank you, Takumi!

(Please make Leo come home when he shows up on his weapon upgrade banner.)

Edit: HOLY SHIT. I was thinking: Hey, I have over 400 orbs. I'll try to stay above that as a Legendary Banner buffer. And you know what, there are three Love Abounds heroes I don't yet have. Heck, I'd be happy if I got an extra Soren or something from it.

I see one green orb, I pull. Hi +atk, -spd Hector who is just here to fight!
