I've come too far to let anyone stand in my way. This is it, Mark. This is our final test. My friends, for one last time, lend me your strength!
— Lyn

The Distant Plains (Japanese: 遙かなる草原 Distant Plains) is the tenth chapter in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, and the final chapter of Lyn's tale.


Main article: The Distant Plains/Script
Lyn reunites with her grandfather, Hausen.

Lyn has at last arrived at Castle Caelin. After battling her way through the last of Lundgren's forces and Lundgren himself, Lyn enters the castle. Inside, she encounters Reissmann, the chancellor of the Caelin Royal Family. He reveals that he received notice of Kent and Sain's success in locating Lyn but was imprisoned by Lundgren to prevent the marquess from finding out that he had a living heir in Lyndis. Reissman leads Lyn to her bedridden grandfather, and the two finally meet. Hausen apologizes to Lyn for being too prideful to accept the love of her parents, ultimately keeping them apart and, in his view, leading to Hassar and Madelyn's death at the hands of bandits. Lyn eases her grandfather's regrets by telling him that although her parents end was indeed tragic, they lived a life full of happiness, peace, and love. Hausen is comforted by Lyn's words and tells her he can now die in peace. Despite her grandfather's poor health, Lyn encourages Hausen to not give into despair and to continue living so that they can make up for lost time.

After an unspecified amount of time passes, It is revealed that Hausen is making a good recovery from his illness. Lyn tells Sain and Kent that she plans on ensuring that her grandfather lives a long life and, thus, plans to stay in Caelin. Florina and Wil both reveal that they too plan to stay in Caelin in service of Lyn herself and House Caelin. Later that evening, Mark says their goodbyes to Lyn. Although she is sad to her trusted friend depart, Lyn does not request for Mark to stay. Rather, she wishes them success on their journey to become a master tactician and says that they will surely meet again.

This chapter has no augury. Hannah will offer her services beginning in Chapter 14.
This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.

There are no forced actions in this chapter so you may approach it however you see fit. You are also allowed to bring all thirteen units available in Lyn's Tale for this chapter, though you are also free to undeploy anyone you feel will not be helpful.

On the third turn, it will start to rain, increasing the movement cost for plains terrain to two for all units including Nomads. In the case of Pegasus Knights, their movement cost is increased to two for all terrain. Cavaliers will now have a movement cost of 3 on plains terrain. There are tiles that have no increase in their movement cost, which include the house tiles and the bridge tiles. Even though Lyn will warn you a turn before the weather changes, this can make the chapter take very long to clear if you decide to get Lyn to the throne without rescue dropping. To get around this setback, you can rescue drop a unit like Wallace, Kent, or Sain (preferably promoted) on the south side of the mountains and manage the enemy units or weaken Lundgren while Florina retrieves Lyn for a quick seize. However, such a strategy can cause you to miss out on the Energy Ring, which is the only one available if you decide to follow Hector's Tale. Also, make sure to use the Energy Ring before the chapter ends or it will disappear.

There is an Armory available that sells weapons effective against Lundgren, however the only weapons you cannot obtain by other means are the Steel Bow and the Heavy Spear neither of which are necessary to take out Lundgren. If Erk or Lucius are low on tomes, they can restock at the Vendor.

As for taking down Lundgren, a promoted Wallace will serve you well against him. With the Iron Axe, Wallace does about nine damage per round and takes eight damage from Lundgren's Silver Lance. If playing on hard mode, a promoted Sain or Kent can also take him on with the Lancereaver, but note that Kent can face crit due to his low base of 2 and poor 20% growth.
Lucius or Erk can provide chip damage, but make sure to rescue drop them out of the way before Lundgren attacks them with his Javelin because while both can survive Lundgren's Javelin, they face crit at base. Also, Serra will likely be unable to heal to enough HP for them to survive another hit. Lucius is better for this job as he can double at base, while Erk needs to level up speed twice.
Getting the boss kill with Lyn is significant in terms of the story but is an uphill task. She has a low hit rate, except with the Lancereaver, which requires her to gain 2 points in strength to even deal damage (The Energy Ring obtained in this chapter can provide this if needed). Forcing Lundgren to use the Javelin will be very helpful as she gets one-shot by his Silver Lance unless she used the Angelic Robe obtained in Chapter 6, and gained at least 3 points in HP and defense combined.

This chapter of Lyn's tale is the last opportunity to meet one of the requirements for Chapter 19x pt 2. Nils must be level 7 by the end of this chapter. If the player is particularly desperate to reach this goal they can clear most enemies from the map then have Nils play for a unit over and over again, as this will always give him experience. Though this does have the downside of massively inflating the player's turn count.


  • The Caelin castle is seen again in Chapter 15E/16H, then guarded by Bauker. The lower left corner of this chapter's map overlaps perfectly with the upper right corner of that chapter's.
