Tale of Ternon
Romhack of Fire Emblem 8: The Sacred Stones
Set on the land of Ternon in 1153, Tale of Ternon tells the tale of the Empire of Novingale, the Kingdom of Seraphyn, and the Republic of Hevursa. Follow the story of one of three houses: Rodin’s Red Lobsters, Vergil’s Purple Jaguars, and Elle’s Amber Bears, and watch how their actions will shape the future of Ternon.
Tale of Ternon is an extensive ROM Hack of FE8, featuring many new mechanics, such as Equippable Accessories, Personal and Class Skills, and a Strenth/Magic Split. It is built off Circleseverywhere/StanH and friends’ Skill System.
This hack gives you the choice between 3 storylines: one for each house. Along with different chapters depending on the route you choose, this hack tries to immerse you by giving each house its own identity doing things such as changing map sprite color depending on the unit’s faction and the route, and changing the menu style depending on which route you chose.
As we wish to make Tale of Ternon a replayable experience, we have decided to allow you to customize each house’s specific units’ classes from a pool of 4 classes each; as to not softlock you, the game will also give you neutral units on every route that are not customizable.
Every route will feature 15 chapters each: 45 chapters total. Because of the shorter than an usual FE game length, units start at level 10 unpromoted, and level up faster than in normal Fire Emblem.
Current Release: So, as you’ve seen in the FEE3 showings, we aren’t quite where we want to be for a first public release; however, we wish to get one out as soon as possible, so watch out for updates!
