Strategy

Part 5: To Feel Loved

Trivia

  • This chapter is the first one showcasing Choose Your Legends character variants that is along a main story path as opposed to a paralogue. Despite what this chapter's plot may imply, it is very likely not for plot-related reasons, as previous Books' Brave paralogues came at points when the Order of Heroes were deducing Bruno's identity (or potentially having wrapped up a visit to Jugdral, as that paralogue unlike most others is implied to take place along Book I's main story path), deep in Múspell, and exploring an alternate version of their own world along their story paths, and only in the first case did they have easy access to Vaskerheim at the time.
  • This chapter is the first instance of a fixed map in which a character, in this case Freyr in part 5, does not equip skills in any of their seven skill slots.
