Chapter 2- Jenkins' Stratagem
Having saved her BFF Tana, Erika's quest to find her brother takes her southward. She is granted 5000 gold and a handful of troops that I can't use from Frelia's king. The villages of Ide in the mountain pass she travels are attacked by bandits, however...

Ouch. This is why I thought maybe Seth should be free for the first couple.

Don't forget that ideally, the nondrafted units shouldn't be getting hit at all. Although it IS pretty hard to avoid this before you get access to the battle preperation screen.

Um, uh, I think you need to add another 4 turns. Undrafted units (Moulder) can't visit villages.

Please ignore my above comment, I have no reading comprehension and somehow thought this chapter took 22 turns. I don't know.

Eight is actually pretty good.

I say as long as you aren't actively baiting enemies or hiding behind undrafted units, then it's okay. It just happens.
hnd03 31st May 12
Yeah, yeah. These first few chapters are gonna be hell on me, that much I can say.
Pulse 31st May 12
And I somehow missed that bit about the villages. Wonderful.

Welp, I'll add those 4 turns, then.

Don't worry, I just intentionally took a +4 penalty that you probably won't have to if you leave a drafted character in range of one of chapter 9's pirates for a few turns, or if you don't care about an extra Rapier.
