Cipher S7 Weekly Recap: Daily Cards, Nindori and Guidebook Info!

As we ramp up towards the Fire Emblem Cipher Series 7 release next week, the FECipher Twitter account has been very active, posting three of the four remaining Super Rare cards this week alone! The most recent was just showcased today: Eliwood from Blazing Sword, wielding Durandal.


Other reveals include a Ninian SR and Ursula R, both also from Blazing Sword, as well as some new cards for Fire Emblem Fates: Basara Oboro as our 3rd SR and Jakob R. Both Oboro and Ninian were expected to get SRs this set, the former for her popularity and the latter for her plot importance, but there’s still one unknown S7 SR remaining.

TearRing Saga Full Translation Patch Project Compete!

Long time Serenes Forest user Aethin has been hard at work for over a year, working on a translation patch for the Japan-only release of TearRing Saga. If you’ve never heard of the game, you’re not alone.


TearRing Saga is a strategy game produced in 2001 by Shouzou Kaga, the creator of the Fire Emblem series. Many similarities exist between the two games, notable through the grid based map movement, unpredictable level-up stat system and more. It’s truly a treat to play, and is regarded as the spiritual successor to Fire Emblem Gaiden.

TRSIf you’d like to give this game a try, Aethin has finally released his completed work, the TearRing Saga English Translation Patch. Aethin’s release will allow fans and newbies alike to experience the game in a language they can hopefully understand, and share new appreciation for Kaga’s fantastic work!
