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.

Live with 25 Hours of Fire Emblem for Charity!

The past couple of weeks have been busy for me, what with prepping for Serenes Forest’s involvement with an upcoming charity event, Extra Life. The wait is finally over though! We’re Live, Right Now with a Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon speedrun, and with much more to come, you’re sure to have a blast!
If you’re not already familiar with Extra Life, it’s a 24-hour themed gaming marathon to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. It’s also a Reddit tradition dating back to 2012. Last year, Team Reddit collectively raised over $176,000. This year, it’s running just as strong, and will take place on November 4th and 5th (12 p – 12 p EST), with heavy involvement from Serenes Forest.
Click for the full schedule *The Fates run will be a fairly speedy, but not really a speedrun
Together, a group of great Fire Emblem players will be playing through 12 Fire Emblem games. Notably, we’re running every English-released Fire Emblem game, as well as Japanese-only Fire Emblem Binding Blade. You’ll recognize some of the bigger names, as well as some more fresh faces in the Fire Emblem speedrunning community: Gwimpage, kirbymastah, Raven, Deku King, Shephen, LeGrandGrand, N7_Commander_John and Nightbarrel, as well as myself, fill the roster of players showcasing the franchise
We’ve assembled a bunch of raffle gifts, including artwork from quite a few fan-artists, as well as collected both amiibo and merchandise signed by voice actors of the more recent FE games (Erica Lindbeck, Brianna Knickerbocker, Kyle McCarley and Ray Chase, to name a few). Donating will enter you in for a chance to win one of these goodies, and there are over a dozen items up for grabs. Donations can also be aimed at certain incentives, like which version of Fates will be played.
We’ll also be visited by Greg Chun (voice of Ephraim and Ike in Heroes, and Lukas in Echoes) during the livestream during the Shadows of Valentia run. You won’t want to miss that!
