And loaded this up today...
Going to restart this from the beginning Frey and Abel were both killed--followed by the systematic slaughter of my Fighters. Followed by the attempted slaughter of my archers. Then they went after my healers.
In short: two cavaliers, three fighters (and one that did not clue me in that he could join us until after he died), one out of two archers, and one healer.
Leaving me with:
* One Archer
* One Lord
* One... whoever that Captain guy is
* One Theif
* One Cavalier
* One Healer
* One Pegasus Knight (I am very surprised that this one stuck around so long--usually the Pegasus Knight is the first to be slaughtered).
Yeah--starting over from after the end of the Prologue. I mean--three chapters in, and I have seven units slaughtered, one failure to join, and well. Only seven left--with nothing that appears able to recruit the Myrmadon.
Why? No idea--the AI was going nuts as it systematically killed my units. Often running past plenty of other, sometimes weaker, units to get its quarry. Which, when you see a fighter run inbetween two Cavaliers to chase after an archer completely ignoring them--yeah, you start to wonder if there is some sort of algorithm in the game specifically designed to target my favourite characters.
