It's been a suggested quite a few times across the fandom, but I don't think anything ever got done. That is, focusing on story-related content, as opposed to statistical info or guides. Fire Emblem is quite a story-centric game, so there's plenty to write about, I'm sure : o

Basically, I would like to add a section on story-related information, such as sypnoses, character bios or other things. However there's no way I can cover everything by myself, since 1) I'm lazy, 2) I'm busy and 3) I don't usually play for the story. So if the section is to be a success, I need the help of volunteers who would like to submit content.

Also, I'd like to know how many poeple are interested in such a section. The worst thing to do is write a ton of articles and have nobody read them... Actually, I've kind of done that already so... j/k

Anyway, I think I'll finish there, but some things I'd like to mention in case I forget later- If the section is realised, I'd like to implement some sort of peer-review system, so other members can correct and improve articles. Also I'll be writing articles as well, so I won't be just sitting back and waiting for content to roll in : P

EDIT

If people want to submit/review, now's the time. I'll probably be doing random stuff in the meantime.

I think its a good idea!

The majority of the Fire Emblem sites deal with only the gameplay aspect of the game, so adding story-related content would really make Serenes Forest unique.

I volunteer to help you, if you decide to do it!

I'll definitely help. The stories is half the reason I play Fire Emblem. Just let me know what you need.

Hmm, dunno if this is the wrong time or place, but we only have two people for the section? ^^;;;

I was thinking of asking on other forums, but it's like recruiting from the enemy army. Kind of.

As much as I hate to say, that's not such a bad idea.

However I'm against it for several reasons. The main one being that it's completely illogical to put it there : P

I am interested in contributing, but I never know how busy I will be each week so I am unable to promise consistency in terms of times I'd be available. I am open to writing some material or reviewing material for errors in spelling and grammar, whatever works. If I write anything, I can try to mimic your style of writing if you think that would be ideal.

I'm not too concerned about the style, as long as it's at least semi-professional. Failing that, as long as it's readable ^^

Also, you don't have to worry about regular submitting either. You can feel free to submit whenever you feel like it.

How should potential spoilers be handled in synopses and character biographies? Do you have any preference for whether synopses should cover individual chapters and events or if they should be broader in scope?

Ah, I forgot to mention spoilers.

I was thinking of putting a spoiler warning on the index page only, since I would associate sypnoses and character bios with spoilers. However, I suppose there might be people who are looking for non-spoilerly info.

For now, I'll probably stick to not hiding spoilers though.

As for sypnoses, either is fine. I guess it just depends on what the author wants to/is able to write.

EDIT

Okay, I think things are all good to go. Now we just need people to volunteer to submit articles and/or review/comment on articles.

Which is probably going to be the tricky part : o

That's slightly vague, but promising I guess : )

When you're about to start an article, just tell me what it's going to be about.

Should an article for a character of central importance to multiple games, or any character I suppose (although that might be redundant), best be one article (as was the case with your piece on the Serenes Massacre), or would two be preferable?

You can do it either way. If all else fails, I could always change it later (although I guess you'd have to make some adjustments this way) ^^;;;

While I fully support this idea, I am sorry to say that I doubt I would be able to contribute anything. Godspeed.
