What's the ideal combination of fashion, skirt and armor for a battledress?

>> No.44285590

You cover the body so you don't die. AFTER you do that, you add all the colorful martially-useless shit you want.

>> No.44285656

The girl in your pic seems to be doing it pretty well, provided she's got armor on under her skirt and has only temporarly removed her pauldrons because they chafe or some shit.

>> No.44285724

Job one: protection
Job two: anything else

>> No.44285795

Actually everyone in that picture is doing pretty well.

>Orc and human in background are wearing polished and effective armor with pauldrons that don't seem to impair movement or vision
>Angel is obviously empowered by the divine and not concerned with the blades of mere mortals
Dark Elf is a wizard or some kind of spellcaster and can rely on her magic to turn away blades so long as she can cast and her natural grace and agility to dodge them when she cannot cast
>Beast-kin girl is in full armor save for her shoulders, which may be a temporary situation

The only problems I can find is that the main girl might be wearing high heeled greeves (and lacks pauldrons) and that the elf on the horse isn't wearing pauldrons.

>> No.44286003

>that elf
>doing pretty well

>> No.44286050

It's difficult to say. However, provided you're not planning on flying anywhere, the skirt does provide the optimal combination of protection when you're fighting and easy access when you're fucking, so OP is probably in a good place to start. Get some pauldrons and a helmet and go from there.

I've never understood why people get so pedantic about armor. If you're wearing some, even if it's not a complete suit, you're better off than if you aren't wearing any. And shields are better armor than armor in most cases for adventurers anyway since it's all small-group battles and your chances of getting stabbed in the back go way down in those cases unless your group is retarded.

But this being /tg/, this thread is not surprising.

I always liked the way Fire Emblem Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn handled armor.
Most characters and classes are kinda light on armor, but what they do have is almost all practical given their roles.
Take Titania here. She's got heels, but it's not particularly extreme for cavalry (Which she is). The least practical part of her is the weapon she's wielding, and even then it's only because she's supposed to be on a horse while fighting.

I didn't really like Awakening's sort of half-assed tech armor. I'd like to see a full set of cyber-armor designs for FE but I didn't like these interim ones, and felt in general the armor types were too similar and dull for specific units (really wanted to see more distinctive character designs for all characters, in line with Vaike, the archer guy and Tharja for example who don't really have a similar model to anyone else). The new generation are better about this than the starting one, but at the same time are almost universally worse characters so YMMV.

The game is too easy and has a rubbish plot even for FE, but you can't expect every one of the FE games to hit it out the park with what is a pretty formulaic structure. I long for the day when they do a FE game where each side is has a moral argument behind their actions you can actually sympathise with. I did REALLY like some of the character designs for the higher level Risen enemies though.

My favorite is probably 8, even though it's easy as fuck. Probably because it was the first one I ever played, but also because it's got super tight design and good characters.
My ideal game would be a lot like Radiant Dawn with better supports and without being so rushed. I actually do like having a MU, but I don't think that it's ideal from a game design perspective, especially when they're not supposed to be the main character. Robin overshadowed Chrom a lot, and even Kris tended to get in Marth's spotlight (That's more forgivable though, since that game was closer to being from Kris's perspective than the neutral third party observer that most other FE games are viewed from). A MU like Marc/Mark is close to ideal, I think. Not gameplay relevant at all and only part of the story as a support for the actual main characters

Oh, and a better endgame. Radiant Dawn's endgame is complete garbage compared to the rest of it. Either cut down on the forced deployments a lot or rework those character's stat growths and usage opportunities so they can actually be usable by the point where you are forced to use them.

That all sounds pretty good! I'd like for there to be a way for the player to be a character with more agency than just being "the tactician" while at the same time not being as present on the battlefield as Robin. I'm not sure how you'd do that 100% - maybe give tactician abilities that can be used 1/game, and an actual character that interacts in out of battle sequences of course.

I'd also like a morally grey FE storyline but like that's even gonna happen.

And that fatass Micaiah. Her speed is atrocious and her other stats aren't good enough to carry her. Maybe Soothe should put her on a diet after taking himself off of the forced deployment roster.
1/4th of your endgame team should not be nearly useless even if you dumped all of your resources for the entire game into making them good.
Actually, that's another problem with Radiant Dawn that I'm going to blame on the insane rush they had to do to put it out at all. Too many characters that are just bad, either because they have shit growth rates and shit bases (Fiona, Meg, ect) or because you can never actually use them enough to count (Tormod and his merry band).

On all of my playthroughs, Micaiah had good speed, so that was never a problem for me. Sounds to me like you got screwed by RNG.

But yes, I think they give you WAY too many characters in RD, and not nearly enough time to level them up and make them useful. Endgame is hard not just because the enemies are strong, but because most of your characters, outside of a select few, are awful.

I beat the game just fine on Lunatic (Or Lunatic Plus in Japan), thanks. She can't hit that magic 34 speed and there are better staffbots. Micaiah is only good for nuking heavy armor and cavalry, and that isn't relevant for endgame.
Oh, and the useless red dragon you get at the very end. He's the worst character by far, even in the face of Fiona (Who can, at the very least, not die instantly if you have leveled her up all the way to Silver Knight)

She's a forced deployment staffbot that hits 40 mag regularly, she doesn't need speed because she's not supposed to fight and psychic spam lets her stay relevant for the entire endgame. The red dragon has a bloody aura, he' more useful than like a third of the cast.

Exactly my point. Too many forced units in general, but especially too many that are bad and can easily be dead weight. Nobody wants to bring redundant characters, and the number of forced deploys exponentially increases the amount of redundancy. I'd rather take Oliver than Micky, if only because he's amusing.

SO Thronewatcher was a chick?
Did they mess up the translation or something?

>> No.44297720

I -think- ENB mentioned it was a translation error in his ds2 vids, but I may be wrong. Its a very feminine looking set that could fit both genders though.

>> No.44297777

Yeah, I assumed she was a chick and got somewhat confused when I got the armour.
Pretty cool set too; ended up using it until I got the full Loyce set.

That is quite the heavy armor for the time and place.

Is the idea to prove some point about medieval warfare, which had some more 1500 years of development?

>> No.44299805


As tempting as it is to declare that there is a One True Design that would work best, what a lot of people don't understand is that in the real world there was an armour race happening alongside the arms race.

Weapons evolve to exploit the problems with common armour (and shields) of the time.

Armour responds to shore up those weaknesses, and incorporate new improvements in metallurgy.

Weapons shift again, and the styles employed adapt with them.

And so on. It's all about context. In Europe, as plate mail improved, shields gradually became less and less necessary, so they shrank over time from towers and kites, dwindling to the 'heater' style. Then guns came along and the heavy plate armour couldn't keep up while remaining practical so they stopped bothering. Now we have armour again, though it's radically different, and the heavy stuff that's great for stopping bullets is still cumbersome and vulnerable to knives and such...

tl;dr - fashion isn't the only thing that changes and goes through cycles.

But then, we're talking about battledresses here, practicality is already out the fucking window and it's strictly feels based.

Here's my feels on the matter: boobplate is excessively stupid, everything in this thread has problems that would make a professional armourer's blood pressure rise. Just go with something that looks vaguely practical while not being cheesecake.

You'll still be doing better than Hollywood's idea of 'hacking' or anything to do with IT.

His point is that the people who complain about "muh realism" are often complete tardo's who fail to take into account important factors while assuming that every human being they theorize about is a perfectly logical being with no culture or emotions, and will therefor always do whatever is the most efficient.

In short, the point kinda went over your head.

>as plate mail improved, shields gradually became less and less necessary, so they shrank over time from towers and kites, dwindling to the 'heater' style.

The kite shield shrank to the heater shield around the early 13thc century, while the first plate reinforcing plates (probably mostly boiled leather) started showing up past the middle of the century or so.

The pavise, which I guess is the "tower shield" here, is IIRC something for the 15th and 16th centuries. We're not going to find them in the 11th and 12th centuries.

>though it's radically different
Steel plates and gambessons, only it's somewhat better steel and kevlar instead of linen. And when we turn to ceramics, well, it's generally a drop in replacement for the steel plates. I guess the gambesson has generally shrunk a good deal though.

>> No.44300200


This is what I get for pretending I know anything about armour. 'Course, Wikipedia claims the pavise was more for archer cover than hand to hand combat, but I'm already on shaky ground, I can tell.

>radically different
Structurally, anon. Kevlar and ceramic plates aren't fucking leather or cloth. C'mon, work with me here.

>> No.44300205

I honestly wouldn't mind it if the player didn't mind social consequences from strutting around like that depending on how serious the game is. Though that may be because I'm actually playing with a player who's character is like that except it's a barbarian who uses enchanted tattoo and she's actually played her PC pretty awesomely

Problem is I don't think most settings have rechargeable illusion items
You'd probably have to waste a spell slot for that

All armor, if you wanted a Battle dress it's 100% fashion, 100% skirt and 100% armor.

>> No.44300666

Pavises are still recorded in the Triumpfzug des Maximilian, in the hands of hungarian infantry.

Their presence at sieges and in the hands of missile troops isn't controversial either. We even got a painting from the 13th century that shows italians with tower shields storming ships at sea.

Maybe, looks like it's on the blade but not through it to me though
