The History of Serenes Forest (via History of the Emblem)

History of the Emblem is a growing YouTube channel that explains the stories and lore of the Fire Emblem games, among other topics. As it happens, our very own website is featured in their latest video!

The video, which is just under 6 minutes long, outlines the history of Serenes Forest all the way from its conception to the present day. Oh boy, seeing the older versions of the website really brings me back…

A big thanks to History of the Emblem for spending the time to gather and present all the relevant information. If you’d like to support them, please do give their channel a visit. From what I’ve seen, their videos are informative and pretty funny.

On a related note, our website reached its 14th anniversary last month. I am really grateful to everyone who visits this site–no matter how often–and to all my staff members for helping to keep the site running smoothly.

This year, on top of the all the regular Heroes and Cipher news coverage, Three Houses is going to be a huge focus for us. Both pre-release and post-release. If you’re interested, I hope you stick around for all the good times to come!

Below, you can find a write up of this website’s history that I provided to History of the Emblem, for their video.

Raven Recruited as News Editor

I’m extremely pleased to announce that Raven with be joining the Serenes Forest team as a news editor. He will help us cover Fire Emblem Heroes news while our news team has other duties to perform.

For those unfamiliar with Raven, he’s been a long-standing member of the Serenes Forest forums for over a decade (which–in Internet time-scales–is almost an eternity). During most of that time, he’s been an active and level-headed member.

In addition, Raven has experience as a content editor. With Fire Emblem Heroes–and Fire Emblem in general–showing no signs of stopping, I’m confident that his assistance will be invaluable to our cause.

Anyway, as always, we hope you continue to enjoy our website and may your Fire Emblem experience be a good one!

Deceptimike Joining as News Editor

Starting from 26th June, Deceptimike will be joining the Serenes Forest team as a news editor. To begin with, he’ll be covering all the Heroes news while Kirie is away on vacation.

Deceptimike, otherwise known as Michael Freeman, has done a lot of videogame reporting, including for Zelda Universe. Of course, he’s also a massive Fire Emblem fan, which is why he’s been recruited into our ranks.

Additionally, if you’re especially perceptive, you may have realised that Deceptimike has previously contributed to a couple of Heroes gameplay pages, such as for Tempest Trials and Arena Assault. So he’s definitely no stranger to the game.

By the way, if you’re interested–and unafraid of being flooded with Heroes thoughts and comments–feel free to check out his Twitter account!

TheVinceKnight Officially Joins the Team

It brings me great pleasure to announce that TheVinceKnight is joining the Serenes Forest team as the chief editor of the Fire Emblem Cipher wiki.

In the blink of an eye, it’s been over 2 years since the Cipher card game graced us with its presence. During this time, several capable volunteers have worked tirelessly to keep the Cipher wiki up-to-date, making it one of the greatest Cipher resources on this side of the community.

Among them is TheVinceKnight, who in addition to being one of the mainstays has also been incredibly helpful with recruiting other editors to work on the wiki. So to be honest, his new job will barely be different from what he’s always been doing!

That said, with his higher position, I am hopeful that he can continue to lead the Cipher section to new heights. By the way, if you are interested in contributing to the Cipher wiki, you are more than welcome to send a PM to either me or TheVinceKnight on the forums.
