The Fire Emblem RPG is a Play-by-Post Game on the TV Tropes message board.It is set 100 to 150 years after the Tellius Timeline of the canon series and it follows the adventures of a band of warriors from very different backgrounds that joined together to repel a bandit attack that struck the little town they where staying in.Their efforts won them the attention of King Alain of Crimea who hired the band of warriors to escort him in a diplomatic journey to the distant land of Hatari, but there may be much more to him than meets the eye. On their way there, the adventurers find that the world is still rife with conflict despite the apparent peace of the past century or so, and the main plotline follows how they react to the rising tensions in Tellius.
Affably Evil: While Alain's "evil" has been of the passive variety as of yet, some of his inner monologues have shown that he isn't what he seems. Even so, he's more or less fooled everyone else in Tellius into thinking that he is a good guy.
Aristocrats Are Evil: King Alain is heavily implied to have less than the altruistic motives he claims to have behind his actions. While the Empress has close ties to Blackfang and the Dukes are divided and suffer from open in-fighting. The only actually noble noble is the King of Daein who's court is rife with corruption.
Brett, a brutish knight and lord who hates Laguz for killing a lot of his friends.
Badass Grandpa: Spartan is 63, and is NOT Older Than They Look. He can massacre people less than half his age. Of course, he fits the "he's a grandpa BECAUSE he's badass" mold because he's explicitly been a soldier since he was 16.
Bald of Awesome: Again, Spartan. He's certainly a balding old man, and he's not evil.
Base Breaker: Aerion and Ambientus while generally accepted now, raised a fair bit of controversy with their Magitek and rather... explicit evil deeds in the generally more upbeat fantasy Fire Emblem verse that the RP is set in.
Bishōnen: Alex, Alain... Random seems to have a thing for this.
The Brute: Lord Brett, boss of chapter 3, pretty much just follows his teacher Ceres' direction.
Eviler Than Thou: Mad Lord Aerion is eviler than Ceres and Lord Brett, and his methods have led to a lot of hate from both sides of the fourth wall. According to his sign-up sheet, he's allied with King Alain, though there has been little evidence of this yet in the RP.
Gambit Pileup: As of chapter 3, notable schemers included an Assassin's guild, their reluctant employee Selene, The King of Crimea, Daein lord Ceres, Liam: a completely separate assassin sent to target Brett (since bought out by Alain), and Rein. Chapter four added Aerion, but maybe not for long.
Add Kurt Rossiel to this list. His plotting has involved some key plot events, and he is inferred to have planned things out, manipulating Ceres to make sure the party was in Daein just so he can be there and assess their strengths.
GMPC: Alexander, Alain. The former is justified by the fact that no one else had entered as a healer. The latter is possibly an example of Villain Shoes
La Résistance: Part of Spartan's backstory involves rebelling against the nobles' Fantastic Racism. He's recently been brought back to where this occurred, and has admitted to being part of the rebellion, if you read his dialog correctly.
Large Ham: Sarath and Harold are the biggest ones of the group.
Ms. Fanservice: Meet Ceres' rather wholesome daughter, Lady Carmine. She has a lot of influence over her husband...gee, I wonder why.
