Strategies for all Difficulties
There is a massive amount of woods and mountains on this map. Your objective is to save at least one of the three villagers.
The villagers will come under attack very quickly, and they flee to the west. For their safety, you'd best dispatch a group across the west bridge to clear the way ahead of them, as well as a group heading to the east bridge in order to kill those following them.
Be wary of the Pegasus Knights; if you don't take care of them soon, they will rain on the villagers. You can either send Sumia/Cordelia out to deal with them, or "lure" them with a unit to kill them defensively. The villagers' ultimate destination is the bottom left, so best to take out the enemies there ahead of time as not to worry later.
As usual, terrain is always a plus. However, remember woods will slow down your units quite a bit, so if you're trying to save the villagers when they get ambushed in the woods, it may be difficult if using someone like Frederick; however pairing him up with a flying unit (Sumia/Cordelia) may save the trouble.
You should receive a Seraph Robe and another item depending on how many were saved.
