Gilded Tales is a FE8 hack I started working on on and off while messing around with FEBuilderGBA and realizing I could maybe actually make something with the tool. Back in the Nightmare days I got very easily overwhelmed w/ trying to create hacks, but now I think I can actually go somewhere with it.
Here’s a Discord link if that suits your fancy. I’ll be keeping that updated with new information.
The story revolves around a young mercenary girl named Rana unraveling the mystery of her mother’s disappearance and saving the world of Grania from a powerful group of necromancers dubbed “The Unholy” along the way. (Honestly all of this is open to change because the story hasn’t been fully fleshed out yet)
- 3 promotion paths for every class.
- A new class: the bardbarian, an axe and light magic focused bard that “sings” to motivate their teammates.
- skills. (will try to limit their use)
- characters with nonstandard weapons for their classes, ie: a male pegasus rider that uses staves, and potentially more.
- 20+ chapters minimum (2 are currently done)
- Potentially expanded supports. I may increase the limit but either nerf or exclude support stat boosts. Kinda just want more character interactions honestly.
- a world map if I can figure out how to use it. This is something I REALLY want to do so I’ll be doing my best to learn how to manipulate the map.
- Standard weapons (sword/axe/bow/lance) that have infinite uses but are slightly nerfed. Non-standard weapons have less uses but are slightly buffed. Magic currently unchanged.

- The current version of the hack is using an outdated skillsystem patch and I need to figure out if it’s possible to switch to the new one without breaking everything.
- for some reason I can’t change the movement sounds of classes, so the peg has cavalry movement sounds. The editor has a movement sound tool that just seems to not work at all? don’t understand how to fix this one.
- Can’t get both visitable tiles to work at the same time on chapter 1. Trying to figure this out.
Please share any issues you find in upcoming versions (or this one if there are any).
the hack is very early in development and I am open to any and all criticism and suggestions! All growths, bases, palettes etc of characters are subject to change for now, but I wanted to show off the little bit of what I’ve made so far.
