Fire Emblem Sacred Stones Speedrun @ AGDQ 2018 in 12 Hours

That’s right folks! If you have kept up with our very own Kirbymastah over the years, or even over the past few months, you’d know that he’s been part of many Fire Emblem speedruns, providing us with great commentary and impressive speed.

This year is no different; at Awesome Games Done Quick 2018, (benefiting the Prevent Cancer Foundation), Kirbymastah finds himself on deck once again to represent Fire Emblem, with a speedrun of Fire Emblem Sacred Stones. In an estimated 85 minute blitz to the end, with a bid-war for whether or not he should take Eirika’s route or Ephraim’s route at the early game campaign split, you can bet you’ll be in for a good show! Click here to give it a watch.

If you’re not familiar with the Games Done Quick series and its charity efforts; Games Done Quick is a bi-annual charity gaming marathon. Volunteers play games at incredible speed (“Speedrunning”) for entertainment. The event is streamed live online, non-stop, and all donations go directly to the charity. This is the winter event, and there will be a summer event later this year, as there has been for a handful of years. The Prevent Cancer Foundation® is one of the nation’s leading voluntary health organizations and the only U.S. nonprofit focused solely on cancer prevention and early detection. Founded in 1985, it has catapulted cancer prevention to prominence and fulfills its mission through research, education, outreach and advocacy across the country.

Community Spotlight: Artists of Askr and Anna’s Secret Stash

If you’re familiar with the Fire Emblem art community, then you may have crossed paths with some of the talent represented in the Artists of Askr, a group created this summer by Reddit user /u/Traveler-san. The Artists of Askr run frequent events, such as their recent Inktober endeavor, (collecting hundreds of pieces of fanart themed by the day), their production of their 170 page The World of Heroes publication, and their great involvement with the FE: Compendium project (piecing together hundreds of artists to collectively draw fanart for nearly every named character in the franchise).

This year, they’ve released their Anna’s Secret Stash issue, a collective of 29 separate artists dressed up (or down?) for the summer. Orders are still up, so if you’d like to grab yourself a copy, check out their site and give it a peak. Many of the artists are regulars on Twitter, and also happen to be good friends of mine, so it’s well worth the peek:

Digital edition: .PDF ($10)

Physical edition: 6×9 paperback ($20) -Available until 12/31/17-

Deluxe Edition: Physical + 10pc Sticker Sheet ($30)

Check out their Twitter, or join their Discord server, to keep up to date on their publications, events and other community driven activities! They’re very open, so if you’re an artist looking for events to participate in and friends to share stories with, or just want a laid back group to socialize with, pay them a visit! Read more

FE Compendium Project Complete!

If you have any interest in Fire Emblem Heroes, or even fanart of the just the games, you may have heard of the recently started The Fire Emblem Compendium project, founded by Yayster. The project itself strived to have a dedicated piece created specifically for this project, for over 700 characters in the Fire Emblem franchise. That’s a pretty monumental goal, right?

Well, after months of coordination since August, it’s complete. 699 artists compiled efforts to create art for 730 named major characters in the Fire Emblem franchise, and you can check it all out here. It was a huge feat, but to complete the project in just a few months is nothing short of incredible, and both Yayster and the contributors deserve praise for their efforts!

Now, they’re not done with their projects, so if you want to seek involvement for future endeavors (like their currently running Secret Santa equivalent, Secret Anna), come visit their Discord server.
