My problems do not necessarily involve speed-running, but rather the 108 SoDs + Clive's Quest Normal Run. I have done this before, but I could no longer pull it off since. I tend to forget things, my recruitment routes are often sub-optimal (I had to constantly go back and forth through towns because of my terrible memory with the game's plot), and war battles dread me so much even if they are scripted, because the SoDs can die if the war units are not optimized enough, which will count against the 108 SoDs run. In my last playthrough, terrible memory, trying to beat Luca Blight with only Riou's party, and war battles took the bulk of
I have the following questions:
1. How many recruits does Castle Level 3 actually need?
2. Which plot windows allow recruitment and do not allow recruitment? I am wary of recruiting people during plot missions because I simply do not know a which exact points in the game allow me to recruit SoDs and which ones do not. As a result, I failed to recruit Lebrante in my last playthrough before access to Radat was blocked before the Luca Blight battle, so I was not able to recruit Bob before the Luca Blight battle like I usually do when I am not trying to complete Clive's Quest.
3. What should I do with Clive's Quest after Radat? Should I go to Sajah right away or should I go somewhere. I have completed Clive's Quest so long ago I could no longer remember how I did it.
It's not all about knowledge, but it helps.
