Beginning log

After crossing the Great River of Thracia, Leif continued on towards Munster. Meanwhile at Munster, the civilians who had heard of Leif's approach were attempting to flee once and for all, and the Magi group led by Ced was aiding their escape. Fierce clashes were ensuing between the Munster army and Magi group day and night...

Strategy

This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.

At the start of this chapter, the red haired-High Priest named Saias, whom you previously saw as an enemy in earlier chapters, is now on your side, volunteering to escort six NPC civilians to safety at the request of Ced. Compared to when he was an enemy unit (where he had 10 leadership stars granting a whopping +30 hit and avoid to everyone in the army), Saias only has five (three after this chapter) leadership stars as a playable character, granting only +15 (later +9) hit/avoid. Saias's main objective during this chapter is to speak to Leif, so that he can give him the Bragi Sword, a sacred blade which negates the damage-halving effect of Raydrik's Loptr Sword. Saias starts very close to the enemy forces, most of whom are cavalry, meaning they can quickly reach him and the civilians. If you want Saias to stay in your party, you also have the additional task of keeping all of the NPC civilians alive and uncaptured; Saias cannot defend the chokepoint to block their advance on his own, as he is very liable to being one-shotted. It is highly recommended to warp your strongest unit to block the chokepoint so that Saias and the civilians can flee to safety. You can also use a Rescue staff to bring Saias over to Leif to get him out of harm's way.

There are two Dark Mages wielding Sleep staves on this map. Use your own status staves to sleep/silence them to prevent them from interfering. Dark Mage reinforcements will also appear in random undiscernible spots around the map. The boss Alphand will get a Poison tome starting from turn 5, so don't dawdle too much.

If a player unit enters a certain range surrounding the castle, a scripted event will trigger, in which Ced will kill Alphand with a critical hit from his Forseti. After that, he will remain on the gate for the remainder of the map. While he is in range of the ballista, the defense and avoid bonuses granted by the gate (even before accounting for the +10 speed offered by Forseti) makes it nigh impossible for him to be scratched. Saias starts close enough to the castle that he can trigger the event, however, it is not recommended for him to trigger it, as the event will provoke the squad of Thracian Wyvern Lords waiting at the eastern mountain range to attack, making it more likely for them to capture the civilians and kill Saias before he can reach Leif's party.

During this chapter, you have a choice to have only one of two units to accompany you for the rest of your journey: Saias or Ced. Ced is a Wind-specialist Sage armed with the powerful Forseti tome, making him bar-none one of the strongest combat units in the game and is a solid support unit in his own right with his A rank in staves; recruiting him will make Saias leave however, so it is recommended to give Saias's inventory to someone else if you decide to recruit Ced. Saias is a High Priest who, while his combat is not even close to matching Ced's, offers multiple leadership stars to boost the hit/avoid of everyone in your team. Saias will also provide a hint in the next chapter on how you can recruit Galzus if he stays. If you desire to keep Saias, then you need someone to move Ced out of the way via rescuing, since he is occupying the gate that Leif needs to seize to complete the chapter.

Note that this is the last map in the game that takes place outdoors. This is something important to note, as all of your mounted units will be forced to dismount in the next chapter onwards, undoing the main advantage that they have over infantry units: high movement and Canto. Additionally, all of your mounted units who specialize in using axes or lances will be forced to use only swords for the remainder of the game; most of them have very low weapon ranks in swords, which may harm their combat capabilities.
