Turns out there is not much to post. Ayra has an even 0 base +2 Love Point per turn with everyone currently in the army. She's got 50+2 with the characters we'll recruit during Chap 2; and 200+2 with the character recruited in the middle of Chap 3. How very fair minded of her.(ETA: I forgot to talk about Ayra's Love Growth with the various characters... I'll do that tomorrow. Too tired now.)
Her Brave Swords conversation gives 100 Love Points to either Lex or Holyn as well.
Our castle is starting to fill up nicely. Like how Deirdre's sprite is at Sigurd's side.
I think this is the most painful moment for arena, because we transition from the Chap 1 arena we need to finish at the end, when lots of units still struggle a lot with it, to a Chap 2 early chapter arena, when a lot of units also struggle a lot of go through it, even if it's starting to be easier.
As the game progresses and you train up your units well, and equip them with better loot, each arena should become a bit easier to complete, even as their difficulty level increases (at least for the units you do invest in).
Anyway, the arena level ups:
(I really forced Finn to pick up some Speed and it was a bit painful)
