Visit is a command that appears whenever a unit is positioned directly in front of a village or a house. If the visit command is then selected, the unit will enter the area, speak to its occupants, and may receive an item or a particular sum of gold afterward. Sometimes, new units can be recruited by visiting these villages. Typically, villages will yield rewards for visiting them, whereas houses only give information to the player.
Often, enemy bandits and thieves will try to ransack a vulnerable village, but if the player manages to visit the villages in time and warn them, the people will fortify their village with gates or walls and stay safe. In most of the Fire Emblem games, any playable unit can visit a village, but in Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Mystery of the Emblem and Shadow Dragon, only Marth can use the visit command.
