I don’t seem to have played this for quite a while. A million and one other games must have arrived and I forgot about it, or something.
Restarted Chapter 18 for two reasons – firstly, and most importantly, I died instantly on the “resume game” save, and secondly, I thought I’d need my idiot Pegasus Knight to recruit the other one that was flying round the map.
I was correct, and I went on to finish the mission “properly” without losing a single unit, although Dorcas very nearly died at the hands (or rather, sword) of Uhai. Thankfully, Oswin made short work of him whilst Dorcas escaped. Onward to 18x now!
