Chosen setting: Magvel Associated Main Characters: Ephraim and Eirika. Associated Games: FE8. Once terrorized by the Demon King and its armies of monsters, Magvel was saved by the heroes who founded its current kingdoms. It relies on the holy power of the Sacred Stones to keep evil at bay. So, one of the first steps in setting up this new Fire Emblem-based RP is the following: Which setting should we RP in? Below, I'll make a short overview of the settings available to us, as well as a quick link to their pages on the Fire Emblem Wiki so you can read up in more detail should you want to. Please note that we would by no means be limited to using the settings as they are in-game. It's entirely possible to take one of these settings and adapt it to have our RP take place so many years before or after the events of the associated games. For the same reason, the associated main characters do not at all have to be relevant- those are only listed for the sake of recognition. I am, however, entirely unfamiliar with Barensia and Jugdral, so if anyone else on this forum has sufficient knowledge of those, I would be grateful if they could fill those in a little. Akaneia Associated Main Character: Marth. Associated Games: FE1/11, FE3/12. The first and most often revisited continent in the series, Akaneia is a land torn apart by the recurring conflict between the Earth Dragon Medeus and the descendants of the hero Anri. The Divine Dragon Naga is worshipped as a god by most humans. Barensia Associated Main Characters: Alm and Celica. Associated Games: FE2. I haven't played FE2 and know absolutely nothing about Barensia. Please refer to the wiki link. Jugdral Associated Main Characters: Sigurd, Seliph, and Leif. Associated Games: FE4 and FE5. I haven't played FE4 and 5, so I know little to nothing about Jugdral. Refer to the wiki link or to Darth_Slaverus. Elibe Associated Main Characters: Roy, Eliwood, Hector, and Lyn. Associated Games: FE6 and FE7. In the distant past, Elibe was a land where humans and dragons lived in peace. However, humans started a war known as the Scouring to exterminate dragons, with roughly 90% success. Centuries later, conflict -and dragons- return to the continent. Magvel Associated Main Characters: Ephraim and Eirika. Associated Games: FE8. Once terrorized by the Demon King and its armies of monsters, Magvel was saved by the heroes who founded its current kingdoms. It relies on the holy power of the Sacred Stones to keep evil at bay. Tellius Associated Main Characters: Ike and Micaiah. Associated Games: FE9 and FE10. A continent inhabited by the shape-shifting Laguz, the 'normal' Beorc, and the taboo hybrid of the two known as the Branded. Conflict between these three groups rises frequently. Ylisse Associated Main Characters: Chrom and Robin. Associated Games: FE13. A land where the tensions between the followers of the Divine Dragon Naga and those of the Fell Dragon Grima decide much of the continental politics. Actually Akaneia, 2000 years after Marth's time. Fates: Nohr and Hoshido Associated Main Character: Corrin. Associated Games: FE14. A poorly-developed continent housing two countries that are each other's polar opposite. While Hoshido is fertile and bright, Nohr is barren and dark. This leads to tension and outright conflict between the two. A custom setting IS an option. However, as I have stated in the past, I am horrendous at worldbuilding. As such, should you wish to suggest a custom setting, be prepared to show effort for it. Present a basic geography and background for it. This thread is open for suggestions in terms of timeframe (before/during/after the games) and setting itself. You can cast your vote for multiple settings in the poll. In the event of a tie, any arguments and suggestions delivered will be considered and collected for a tiebreaker in a different thread.
