Earn Renown by completing a set number of battles from non-DLC missions (10 for Story/Skirmish, 50 for Spotpass/Streetpass, and varying for Double Duel). You can earn the following rewards depending on the amount of Renown you have. Note that while you can only obtain each reward once per playthrough, the Renown itself is never redeemed so you can carry them over to subsequent playthroughs, allowing you to accrue even more.
This is a list of characters obtainable through normal gameplay. Not including DLC or Spotpass or Streetpass.

If you've played the DLC (purchasable single for like $2.50, or part of a pack for like $5.00), you see all the gold that all those Risen carry, but the powerful ones carry around 5-7k. Unfortunately, they are capable of annihilating your group, especially if you're near the beginning of the game. However, I have devised a strategy for this situation. I use it myself, and on the start of a new game when the Outrealm Gate unlocks, I've amassed over half a mil in gold for upgrades and purchases.
- Please note: If you are far enough in the game that you are destroying the other DLC episodes, or able to defeat the powerful teams that are available via StreetPass/SpotPass, this guide isn't that useful, but it does have tips. This assumes that you are not that high-level, and assumes that you are playing on Classic, where you lose people permanently if they die.***
</span><!-- wikilists -->
1) Purchase the DLC.
2) Prepare your Golden Gaffe starter team. The Avatar, Chrom, Frederick, and a few others who are decently levelled (8-10+ in base, even better if reclassed) work well.
3) Run through Golden Gaffe several times (I did this 6), only killing the ones worth 1k, or 3k. If you are lucky, kill one or so of the ones carrying 5k, if you can manage it without losing characters.
4) When you have enough, you want to start off by summoning the team from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War G1 or G2.
If you choose G1, you want to summon the team of Arvis.
If you choose G2, you want to summon the team of Julius.
Recruit the leader from the team you summoned. On my game, Arvis costs 41,800 Gold, and Julius costs 39,400 gold. Expensive, but these two sorcerers can make this task a lot easier.
5) After you've recruited one of them, go back to the Outrealm Gate, and run through the Golden Gaffe mission again. This time, make sure you take Arvis/Julius. Try to have a good Dark magic tome to equip them with. (Waste is a good choice, as both of them can attack 4 times, depending on the enemy). Use them to take out the enemies carrying 7k. If you're lucky to position properly, you can take out most of, if not all the ones carrying the big amounts before they escape.
6) When you have enough, recruit the other one you didn't take the first time. Now, you just use your team to beat down the Risen, and take their gold.
7) As you do this, and amass gold, you can add others to the team. The team I'm about to list is all SpotPass team people.
At the height of my efforts, I had a team of: King Marth, Prince Marth, Avatar, Chrom, Arvis, Julius, Seliph, Sigurd. This team allowed me to kill every one of the Risen by turn 3 or 4.
8) Wash, rinse, repeat, and cash the check. You now have enough gold to do whatever you want.
Question 1: Why did you choose the sorcerers?
Answer 1: They have the best range, and make the best use of their tomes without requiring use of more money to improve weapons or purchase others. They also tend to kill the enemies in one to two shots.
Question 2: The people you suggest are too expensive!
Answer 2: Not a question, but I'll answer it. Expensive, yes. However, proper use and equipping will make this a quick event.
Question 3: The game is boring now that I don't have to worry about money!
Answer 3: Again, not a question, but here's your answer: DON'T USE IT! Do it the old fashioned way.
Hope this tip helps.

We all know that support between characters strengthens them, however there are efficient ways of grouping your characters. Whenever characters have support conversations, you get various stat increases based on which stats the supporting character excels in. For this reason it's smart to support slow characters with fast characters, mages with mages, slow characters with fast characters, etc to get the most out of your supports.
If you are having trouble upgrading the huge selection of characters in this game then these are the tips for you!
*Use reeking boxes.
Even though the DLC maps are an alright place to upgrade your characters, you might wan't to stay away from this, because even though it's effective, it's also very time consuming. I found the best way to upgrade your characters quickly is to buy about ten Reeking Boxes and place them in order from the first level onward.
After you do this, bring just the one character of interest to the maps and have him or her kill everything each map. Ensure you turn the battle sequences off and skip the enemy actions to make things go quickly.
If you are having trouble affording Reeking Boxes simply download the Golden Gaffe map. Doing this will allow you to make all the money you need to have success.
*Use the Champions of Yore 1 map for upgrading very weak characters.
If you are having trouble upgrading really weak characters (this can happen on harder modes) after chapter five then this is the map you want. There are few enemies plus you have support from allied units, I also bring a healer to help out the weak unit.
*Always pair up the unit you are upgrading.
Pairing up the unit you are upgrading through all the maps can also allow you to build support relationships with several characters very quickly.
The DLC maps hold towns that never close up. Enter the Champions of Yore maps and visit the towns all you want for unlimited items.
