“The merchant Anna invites Chrom and his gang to a beach retreat to thank them for saving several worlds. However, they didn't expect plunderers to appear...”
Summer Scramble (Summer of Bonds in the Japanese version) is Xenologue 17 of Fire Emblem: Awakening.
This map features many conversations between the parent characters who normally do not support each other in the main game. Chrom, Gaius, Tharja, and Cordelia each have a special scene where they don a swimsuit, and they also have special conversations with the Avatar. Any character that is a Sorcerer will wear a swimsuit in battle in this map. This map is recommended for those who love dialogue between characters.
There are plenty of bandits to deal with, including some Sorcerers, Warriors, Berserkers, Tricksters and Barbarians, which use high-level equipment, such as Tomahawks, Silver Axes and Ruin. At the bottom of the map contain Wyvern Lords, Wyvern Riders and Griffon Riders. The majority of the enemy uses axes, so having sword users may be helpful.
Certain characters can speak to other characters from the start of the chapter. Certain conversations that can only be initiated by the character after the third turn are Bolded.
