The post feels a little too barren, so here is a meaningless line.
Fire Emblem


omg so true and real


I’ve cast my vote, and in doing so have come to the realisation I haven’t actually played all that many hacks to completion beyond one-chapter contest entries. I’ve come up with ten, but factoring out hacks I didn’t like and sticking an asterisk on hacks I’ve contributed to in some way, I only got to eight.

Darr's votes

The Last Promise
The Road to Ruin
Elibian Nights
The Second Scouring
Time for Tom
I’ve contributed to so pinch of salt:
Void’s Blitzarre Adventure
FE4 Binary

List isn’t sorted beyond order of recall. I’ve played a few more, but I never actually finished them.


While the placements jumble around a bit these are my overall

Top 10 Hacks

Storge - Neat concept with fun enough story and units, it’s also real short so it won’t take up much of your time if you want to try something neat.

The Princess’s Lament -A good rewrite of FE8 that both keeps the spirit of the original and expands it with maps, story, characters and character, also does really good army switching

Host of the Dark -A good 2 act hack with an engaging story and fun game-play, a little rough in places however it is still a great experience, with clear passion behind it.

Order of the Crimson Arm -Fairly simple FE7 hack, stands out with an avatar, and some memorable chapters. However presentationally it does get rough towards the end but is still enjoyable and fully playable, I’m very nostalgic for this one as it was one of if not the first hack I ever played

The Last Promise -The classic, while aged I find it holds up decently, I even think the story while not great, and a little cheesy, can also handle it’s weight so to speak, being only a bit below FE7 in it’s quality and is an enjoyable romp regardless

Souls of the Forrest -A great gameplay experience with a focus on high numbers and tight map design, with an engaging story, unfortunately only one route is completed, but, fortunately one route is completed.

Sacred Echoes -A beautifully presented demake of FE15 with much custom content, really calling it a demake is almost insulting, not much more to say here if you like FE15 give it a shot it won’t be the same experience but it is a love letter much like Echoes was to Gaiden.

Vision Quest -A hack that is well liked for a reason it manages to weave both what I consider the best narrative of anything FE and a great gameplay experience into a well presented package and as such stands as one of the greats even compared to the highs of the main series, hell compared to all commercial games.

Pokemblem -A combination of two series I love, A technical marvel and an experience that both plays like it’s inspirations and noting like them, and it has Beedrill the greatest pokemon as a viable, nay great option.

Sword of Heaven and Earth -It’s like FE 6 but Lyn, 9/10, not FE6.

[but for reals it’s a charming what if for Elibe’s world that clearly had love behind it, while the later chapters can be tedious at times I find it has enough good maps and fun concepts to win me over]

However Sword of Heaven and Earth remains my number 1 while not the best game it’s charm won me over

I answered the servery with what I felt was most accurate order, then I forgot to copy paste oops

Doing the math. If 55 people said vision quest, that would mean that 7 people that said VQ did not say yes to the food question. Are they heathens?


This is huge
