Released on April 25th, 2003,Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade is the prequel to Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. It is the first game to be released in the west and the seventh game in the franchise overall. The game follows three young lords in Lyndis, The granddaughter of the marquess of Caelin. Eliwood the son of the marquess of Pherae. And Hector, the Brother of the marquess of Ostia. The story starts with Lyndis or Lyn finding you passed out near where she lives. After Lyn discovers who her grandfather is and the danger she’s in she recruits several companions in a quest to save him and finally meet him. These companions are Sain, Kent, Florina, Wil, Dorcas, Serra, Erk, Rath, Matthew, Nils, Lucius and Wallace. With help from her friends Lyn manages to save her grandfather from bveing killed by his brother and finally gets to meet him for the first time. Part 2 of the story has two diverging paths. Eliwood’s path has a Normal difficulty level, while Hector’s path has a Hard difficulty level. Regardless of which path you play, You are joined by Lyn’s party as well as Hector, Eliwood, Lowen, Rebecca, Bartre, Merlinus, Priscilla, Raven, Canas, Dart, Fiora, Legault, Ninian, Isidora, Heath, Hawkeye, Geitz, Farina, Pent, Louise, Karel, Harken, Nino, Jaffar, Vaida, Karla and Renault. In part 2, you will be taking on the Black Fang. Black Fang is led by a man named Nergal, who wants to o a portal to the world of Dragons and unleash them upon the world of humans once more. In an effort to stop this from happening and to protect their homes, Lyndis, Eliwood and Hector recruit you to be a tactician once more. Although Nergal is successful in opening a portal and unleashing a single dragon he is quickly stopped with everyone’s help and the world is safe once more. This game was my original introduction to the series and the reason this series as a whole is one of my absolute favorites. As such I do highly recommend playing it if you haven’t already and even if you have as it has great replayability.
