In case you missed it, the deadline for Serenes Forest Scribbles 2016 has been extended to 5th March 2017.

For those of you who have already submitted an entry and are patiently waiting for the results, we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Meanwhile, if you were sitting on the fence or in the middle of an unfinished piece (or know somebody in that situation), there’s still plenty of time to enter for prizes, fame and–most importantly–fun!

Serenes Forest Scribbles 2016 is Open!

We have an important message for all Fire Emblem fans! Our creative extravaganza, Serenes Forest Scribbles is back for another year!

serenes-emblem

Around the same time last year, we held our first Fire Emblem creative event and it was a big success. Lots and lots of talented fans showed us their work, while many others came over to look and show their support.

Needless to say, we’ve all been extremely looking forward to holding it a second time!

As before, we want to see your Fire Emblem fan works, whether they’re pictures, stories, cosplay, anything! So long as they contain original assets.

Despite the name of the event, this event is not exclusive to Serenes Forest members, but you will require a forum account to submit your entry. (Registration is simple and free; it’s so we can easily collect everyone’s details.)

Naturally there will be prizes to tempt to you. All submissions will be entered into a mystery raffle, while top-scoring entrants can look forward to snazzy prizes such as the Awakening artbook and booster packs from the Cipher card game!

Scribbles 2016 is open from 4th December 2016 to 4th February 2017, which gives you two full months to prepare something.

For the full details, please check this forum topic managed by our cheery admin, Tangerine.

Please do share this event with any Fire Emblem fans you know and I hope to see you around!

Fire Emblem Awakening Artbook Debuts in US

If you remember preorders for The Art of Fire Emblem Awakening going up late last year, well you’re in for a treat, because after 10 long months, the artbook is finally available. Dark Horse, the publishing company behind Hyrule Historia, has finally released The Art of Fire Emblem: Awakening.

Cover

This 320 page book is filled to the brim with artwork related to character design, weapon design, storyboards, event illustrations and the game’s complete script for all possible dialogue and scenes.

This book will also be published in English, meaning that while those not proficient with Japanese may have had to pass on the Japanese version of this one, those same readers will be facing incredible temptation to pick this one up.

Pg76

Preorders are currently being shipped, but if you missed your chance at a pre-order, copies are available now through your local comic shop (not confirmed in all comic shops), Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com and even for Amazon Kindle. The best part? Its original asking price of $39.99 has been reduced to roughly $25.99. So quit reading this article and go snag yourself a copy!

FEE3 2016 is Just Around the Corner!

Fire Emblem E3 (FEE3) is an annual tradition in the Fire Emblem fanproject community, where Fire Emblem ROM hackers and game designers come together once per year to present their fantastic work for everyone to see.

During the past five years, a ton of absolutely magnificent and jaw dropping fan-games and ROM hacks have stepped into the limelight to strut their stuff, and this year they’re at it once more! Some veteran projects have made yet another return to the FEE3 stage, some projects are here for the first time ever, and some projects are just here to absolutely blow our minds with some insane engine defying hackery.

Now, some of you might be seeing FEE3 for the first time ever and could be wondering what this event is. But, if you thought that this was a Fire Emblem related showcase of some kind, you’re on the right track!
