“Marth did as Gotoh instructed and chose soldiers for his journey into the unseen. What lay within the tower in this alternate world to test him? Marth's heart wavered. But with neither the divine blade Falchion nor the divine dragon girl to aid him, the tower's master was his last hope of defeating Medeus. Gotoh had told Marth to find a coffin. So while most of his companions remained in the material world to battle Doluna, Marth and his chosen few scoured the tower to search of a mysterious savior.”
The Alterspire (also known as The Alterspire in the North American version) is Chapter 24x of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon.
If you want to advance to this Gaiden Chapter you must have Tiki dead (or not recruited) and the Falchion not in possession by the end of chapter 24 (although you can have Tiki killed and then resurrect her with the Aum Staff later). You can gain the tomes Excalibur and Aura. Beating the level allows you to gain Nagi as an ally instead of Gotoh. This chapter is the only chapter to contain enemy Berserkers,Swordmasters, and Warriors, (except for the chapter The Lair of Fire, where Ymir is an enemy before you recruit him) although you can fight units of these classes in the arena. The unit you gain is Nagi, a Divine Dragon, who's stats are similar to Tiki's. After you recruit her, she gives Marth a weaker version of Falchion. There is a way to enter this chapter without losing Falchion. You must have Tiki hold onto Falchion. Allow her to be killed in or before Chapter 24. At the end of the chapter, Tiki is dead and Falchion is gone, so Gotoh sends you to 24x. But, since Tiki died while holding it, the good Falchion will be in the inventory. Use the Aum staff to revive Tiki. So, it is possible to enter the Endgame with two Falchions and two Divine Dragons.
