Never really joined any FE communities before despite being an avid fan since Blazing Sword came to the US back in what, '03? I was a teenager then… Makes me feel old thinking about it. But I digress; I lurked a little bit on this site here and there, but it was really once in a blue moon until fairly recently. So I finally made an account!
Anyway, I dabbled in ROM hacking some years ago, and got daunted by my own project desires, so I gave up on that pretty quickly. Was too consumed with other hobbies (two of which involved writing fantasy stuffs and attempting to make a D&D campaign, neither of which went anywhere, so the world I was making never saw the light of day). But that may change!
In light of all that, and a want to actually finish creating that story and world I began writing so long ago; I started working on a hack a few months ago in what little spare time I have with life. It’s nowhere near completion, but if I ever get it to a point where I’m satisfied with the quality of the project I’ll release it still WIP. But for now it’s very early despite having worked on it on and off for a few months.
Original story in world I’ve been dreaming up for several years (and maybe even a world map if I ever lay a solid one I like out). Doing some, admittedly slight, edits to official animations. Creating my own portraits for the characters (well, they shall remain splices until I get better at making sprites… Working on it slowly… But hey, I’m trying to avoid just doing straight up pallet swaps, alright?). Already have some supports written out and whatnot as well.
And, just as a note, I’m intending to do this thing solo. So much of the stuff people have made here is amazing, and inspiring for me to try myself! I’m trying to work on my own skills and whatnot. The hack will likely be simple in structure compared to what I’ve seen others attempting/doing.
And, uh, yeah. Slowly trucking along into Chapter 3 of it. Much of it is not set in stone quite yet, and extremely subject to change since I’m not -quite- happy with aspects of it right now. Which is why I’m not releasing it in its current state. If I can get the first arc to where I’m happy with it, well, you can probably guess.
