  1. CbPLcC7UkAAqfFe.png

    The numbering looks to be what I expected for the #FE characters, assuming each mirage master gets 3 cards, plus one for their mirage partner that would bring Archanea to 16 cards, and Ylisse to 12. Add in one more fore #FE Tiki and that makes 17 Archanean cards, with room for a Lodestar Marth to sneak in before this card here.

    I tried my hand at these cards today, here's a full spread:

    Marth, Scion of Bravery

    Quote: "It matters not who stands against us…Altea shall be reclaimed."

    Skill 1: "Mystical Jewel" / α / [Tap this card] Choose 1 of your Orbs and look at it.

    Support Skill: "Emblem of Destiny" / ATK / If the attacking unit has a Sword of Light Insignia, then draw 1 card. Afterwards, choose 1 card from your hand and put it on top of your deck.

    Lucina, Fortuna Swordsman

    Quote: "Truly, youth is a powerful ally…"

    Skill 1: "Name of the Hero King" / § / Treat this card as also having the unit name "Marth".

    Skill 2: "Premonitions" / & / [Once per turn][Flip 2 Bonds] After an ally unit class changes, if you pay the cost then search your deck for a "Lucina" card of deployment cost 3 or greater, show it to the opponent, and add it to your hand. Shuffle your deck afterwards.

    Support Skill: "Emblem of Destiny" / ATK / If the attacking unit has a Mark of Naga Insignia, then draw 1 card. Afterwards, choose 1 card from your hand and put it on top of your deck.

    Here's my translation attempt for today:

    Tsubasa Oribe, Pegasus Idol

    Quote: "You don't stand alone, believe in yourself!"

    Skill 1: "Lovey-Dovey Trance♪" / ∞ / If this unit was moved this turn, an increased attack power buff of +10 activates for ally units deployed in the same area as this unit.

    Skill 2: "Follow your dreams!" / α / [Once per turn] Move this unit. This skill cannot be used if this unit is tapped.

    Translation for today's card:

    Itsuki Aoi, Lord Incarnate

    Quote: "We…will forge our own path!"

    Skill 1: "Heaven's Quake" / & / [Once per turn] After an ally class changes, choose 2 enemy rear guard units and move them.

    Skill 2: "Talented Summoner" / α / [Once per turn] Choose 1 ally with a CF skill. That unit's attack power is increased by 40 until the end of the turn.

  4. And here's Tsubasa and Caeda!


    EDIT: Looking a bit closer, these cards also show their number and rarity, unlike yesterday's. We can maybe assume that Itsuki will also be a booster HN and his matching Chrom a booster N.

    Translations for today's cards:

    Tsubasa Oribe, High School Visionary

    Quote: "I-I am Tsubasa Oribe, age 17!"

    Skill 1: "Aerial Dance" / α / [Discard 1 "Caeda" from your hand] Choose as many ally units as you like and move them.

    Support Skill: "Emblem of Flight" / ATK / You may choose 1 ally unit that is not the attacking unit and move it.

    Caeda, Illusory Pegasus Knight

    Quote: "My name is Caeda. You must be…Tsubasa?"

    Skill 1: CF "Carnage Form" / ∞ / While this unit is deployed in the same area as "Tsubasa Oribe" this unit cannot be defeated in battle.

    Skill 2: "Harmonious Wings" / α / [Tap this unit] Choose an ally unit and move it. If you move "Tsubasa Oribe" with this skill, you may move this unit as well.

    Support Skill: "Emblem of Mirages" / ATK / At the end of this attack you may place this card on the battlefield in the same area as an ally "Tsubasa Oribe" instead of in your Triage.

  5. We've got our first (I think, anyway) full cards shown from Series 4!


    EDIT: here is a direct link to the tweet it was shown in.

    Translations for today's cards:

    Chrom, Neophyte Phantom Prince

    Quote: "To arms! I have your back, Itsuki!"

    Skill 1: CF "Carnage Form" / ∞ / While this unit is deployed in the same area as "Itsuki Aoi" this unit cannot be defeated in battle.

    Skill 2: "Synchrom" / α / [Tap this unit] The attack power of an ally "Itsuki Aoi" is increased by 10 until the end of the turn.

    Support Skill: "Emblem of Mirages" / ATK♥ / At the end of this attack you may place this card on the battlefield in the same area as an ally "Itsuki Aoi" instead of in your Triage.

    Itsuki Aoi, Charismatic Student

    Quote: "Chrom, lend me your strength!"

    Skill 1: "Nihil Swath" / α / [Discard 1 "Chrom" from your hand] Choose 1 enemy unit and move it.

    Support Skill: "Emblem of Heroism" / ATK♥ / If your attacking unit has a Sharp Insignia, then until the end of this attack the orbs that it destroys as a result of battle is now 2.

    (PS: I'm sorry for my long absence, but I hope to rejoin the community to have fun and be of some use again!)

  6. I could probably fill in all the rest of the missing cards with the translations from my personal project if you all are alright with my translation work. I finished up the whole set a few days ago, but I haven't wanted to step in on anyone else's work.

  7. I just wanted to point out that the Gaius and Julian "Thief" cards both have 盗賊 as their class, while Zero's card has シーフ.

    Both mean "Thief", but the Cipher developers made a distinction for a reason. Personally, I'll be using Outlaw in my translations of his cards. I think if the Cipher developers wanted Zero to be treated as a thief class, they would have used 盗賊 on his card too. Besides, there might be a time later when class distinctions are important for certain skills.

  8. There was a large number of cards we didn't know about until release.

    I expect a very limited amount of press before set releases, and that's fine.

    Edit: Just wondering, are the names for the two Minerva cards correct? Other sources translated them in reverse, and the level 4 card does seem to have a smaller title than the level 1.

    Edit 2: Are Corrin and Corrin really translated Crownprince and Crownprincess? I don't know much about Fates, but if they really ARE heirs to the thrones, Nintendo lied to me about Ryouma and Xander.

    I'm going off of the way they are translated in my google doc compendium, it is correct. Cost 4/3 Minerva is "Princess Minerva" and Cost 1 Minerva is "Princess of Macedon".

    The Corrin promos have the exact same titles as Marth and Chrom, and I haven't played through FE:if yet to know if the "Crown-Prince/ss" part fits according to the story.

  9. My friend and I have been trying some more unorthodox deck builds. The most notable MCs have been Ogma, Robin, and Lena. Ogma works great in the early game since the cost 1 card gets an attack buff for both turns as long as you have two low cost units in play alongside him. Lena was a bit harder to get to work, but I paired that deck with a Draug as the main secondary unit for defense and a Camus for offense with plenty of Tiki cards for extra bond placement when Tiki appears in the Support Area. Robin works well especially if you get her moved to the back lines where she can pick people off without too much harm.

  10. I finished up my translation of the Robin♂ card just now. I'll add in the parts that are missing and update the wording of his skill, if that's ok.

    Enigmatic Tactician, Robin♂ – Rarity: Promotional / Series 1 Promo Card #?

    Cost: 2 / Promotion Cost: N/A

    Insignia: Awakening

    Affinities: Male / Sword

    Quote: “Let’s tip the scales!”

    Skill 1: “Guerrilla Warfare” / & / [Flip 2 Bonds] After deploying this unit, if you have less orbs than your opponent and you pay the cost, add the top card of your deck to your Orb Area.

    Skill 2: N/A

    Support Skill: N/A

    Attack Power: 50

    Support Attack Power: 20

    Range: 1

    Rank: Unromoted

    Class: Tactician

    Title: Enigmatic Tactician

    Card ID: P01-?PR


  11. 3) Well, there's Stahl/Sully/Cain/Abel that basically make your backline useless, giving you the option to keep them useless or give them a chance to be useful.

    4) Every unit with a Staff icon cannot initiate an attack.

    My question, about Draug:

    “Armor Expertise” / CONT / Except against Tome affinity units, when this unit attacks it’s attack is increased by 20.

    Does the phrase "attacks" mean any battle, or only when it initiates? Because that seems like the opposite of Kellam.

    My apologies, that's a mistake on my part. The skill "Armor Expertise" should read "Except against tome-wielders, when this unit is attacked, its’ attack is increased by 20." This applies for both Draug and Kellam. Thank you for the catch on that.

  12. I assume that it is also in order of their set number in the starter deck? As in "B01-003HN Crown Prince of Altea, Marth" is S01-006ST? The card entries need to go by that, as well.

    On another note, does anyone know where I can find high quality non-sample images of the promos and the + cards? Gotta have those for documentation purposes and all that.

    The cards found in both booster and starter decks don't have S01 in front of their starter deck varient ID. For that list I gave, the only difference in documentation is that the ID drops the rarity code and adds 'ST'. For example "B01-003HN Marth" becomes "B01-003ST Marth". It's weird I know, but that's how the card IDs are on the cards themselves.

    For the Promo and + cards, its looking like we will have to scan those in ourselves if we want HQ images. I haven't come across a site that has those up yet, and honestly I think we got pretty lucky that all the others got posted online.

  13. Well, I just figured that since the wording isn't "one more orb", but "2 orbs instead" then it wouldn't truly stack. I could possibly be wrong, but if I am, then the wording is very bizarre. If I can get confirmation on this, I'd be glad to add it to the comprehensive rules.

    Based on wording alone, no these effects should not stack. The skills all state that "the orbs destroyed as a result of battle becomes 2."

    Thank you for the answer.

    Manage to play a game today. It's weird and interesting at the same time. Guess just need some time to get use to it.

    About the rules, I think extra note should be added for support card.

    If I'm not wrong, the support only last till the character ends his/her attack/defend. Not throughout the player's turn.

    Cause we need to search the forum for info on that.

    About this skill of Red Eye Bull Sully

    CSS “Aegis” / ∞ / Enemy rear guard units with Bow, Tome, or Stone affinities cannot attack. (CCS: If this unit was placed without the promotion unit cost, this skill is inactive)

    It means rear guard enemies can't attack anyone at all?

    Eg. Enemy Virion on rear guard. I have Chrom and Sully with "Aegis". Enemy Virion can't attack both Chrom and Sully. That's not wrong, is it?

    This is correct, Aegis does not allow enemy vanguard units to initiate any attacks no matter who the target is.

    Actually, Robin's skill is actually if you have lesser orbs than your opponent, then her attack is increased by 10. (error in translation, gonna point it out in the other thread)

    But generally when a card mentions bonds (Nowi for example) it includes both flipped and unflipped (normal and reversed)

    Thanks for the catch on this, the compendium documents have been updated. Regarding bonds, you are right. It has been confirmed that any skill that generally mentions "Bonds" refers to both flipped and unflipped bonds counted as a total whole.

    CCS “Wyvern’s Screech” / ∞ / The attack of all ally flying affinity units is increased by 10. (CCS: If this unit was placed without the promotion unit cost, this skill is inactive)

    Does Cherche's Wyvern Screech apply to herself as well?

    Based on wording alone, the skill specifically mentions "ally" units which would mean all units except Cherche herself. Cherche cannot be an ally to herself.

  14. FutureKnightX, I saw that you had posted this in the general thread and thought it would be better served posting an answer to it here in this thread.

    It would go under "set number", naturally, but yeah, that is the idea. And I have zero clue what cards are also in the starter decks, so that info would be nice, too.

    The booster cards that are also found within Starter Decks are:

    B01-003HN Crown Prince of Altea, Marth

    B01-006HN Princess of Talys, Caeda

    B01-007R Infamous Knight “Raging Bull”, Cain

    B01-009R Infamous Knight "Prowling Panther", Abel

    B01-010N Verdant Knight, Abel

    B01-012N Protective Knight, Draug

    B01-013HN Archanean League Bowman, Gordin

    B01-014N Altean Archer, Gordin

    B01-018HN Talysian Mercenary, Ogma

    B01-072N Sharp-Tongued Noblewoman, Maribelle

    B01-076N Young Prodigy, Cordelia

  15. Are you 100% sure? Because that changes her value. you'd need 7 bonds out to keep her stable instead of just 6.

    Yes, Nanaka is 100% correct. This was a mistake on my part, and I think Nanaka helped me realize that a few pages back, I apparently forgot to update it in the final Cipher translation compendium. The skill's description makes clear in Japanese that it is not a choice.

    Thanks again Nanaka, I've gone in and fixed it on the translation documents.

  16. One of the latest tweets actually contain some interesting new information. After introducing the Marth leader-unit card, Kawade talked about why the Series 1 set is entitled "War-blade of Legends".


    "[Kawade] The name "War-blade of Legends" for the first Series came from watching the Cipher staff play-testing the game. With cards lined up facing each other, blades brandished, the image of swords clashing in battle is what came to our minds. #FEcipher"


    "On the flipside of Marth with the "Blade of Light" Insignia, here is Chrom with the "Mark of Naga" Insignia whose power stems from his Brand and his allies' strength."

  17. Thanks so much to everybody getting the wiki up and running so quick! Apologies I haven't been available to help with wiki construction due to work obligations, but I'm glad that the translations are getting a good home. I'm still on a business trip, but if there is anything that needs to be done when I get back, I'll do what I can to help.

  18. Newest tweet officially shows off the Tiki Promo card.


    "This promo card depicts Tiki after awakening from her deep slumber. Clearly she is surprised about her new endowments. (Illustrator: Mayo) #FEcipher"

    Not sure if I should put this here but I was on Amazon and noticed they listed an official guide for Cipher coming out 7/31. It hasn't been announced officially yet but it's on the kizuna blog as well.

    Pretty standard book (show of all cards, deck strategies, FE background) but will come with 2x Enigmatic Tactician, Robin (Male) promotional card. The card will only be available from this book.

    Link and info

    Meant to say this with the update last night, but thanks for this audiotronica! I'll have to get to checking this out when I get off this business trip.

  19. Hi, I admin the Cipher Foreign Community Facebook group. Would you be okay with me posting these translations on that group page?

    Would you mind if i use your work to translate the game also to spanish? Obviously I'd say you are the one that translated it to english

    Yes to both of these, I appreciate you guys taking interest in further spreading this to other communities!

    Sorry I'm just now getting back to yall. I'm on a business trip and have been really busy lately.

  20. Been a bit busy so I apologize for the wait, but these are the most recent tweet updates. Kawade recounts his experience observing the Cipher test events and they showed off the Bento-Box o' Chocolates Tharja promo card.


    "[Kawade] When listening to participants at the Cipher demo events, I've heard quite a few people express that Cipher is not only a lot of fun to play, but it also has allowed for deep conversations about FE that were previously not possible. It seems like Cipher events and tournaments have already been successful for fellow FE fans to interact with one another! #FEcipher"


    "[Card Introduction] This card is also a tournament promo-pack card. This illustration is meant to capture the scene in which Tharja makes a Bento box in an effort to seem like "a normal woman" all in order to win the affections of Robin. (Illustrator: Toshiyuki Kusakihara) #FEcipher"

  21. So I think that we sorely need to make a complete English-language setlist for S01, S02, B01 and promotional cards. I don't know if anyone's been working on this already, but I tried drawing up a basic page on the wiki to brainstorm some options for presenting the information, using the same basic structure as the CFV wiki's set pages but adding additional categories: http://serenesforest.net/wiki/index.php/Booster_Set_1:_Warblade_of_Heroes

    We could also try tables that look more like what Bulbapedia uses for their setlists: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Base_Set_%28TCG%29

    I think that the Bulbapedia route of including the symbol a card belongs to may work better for Cipher, since there's only going to be a maximum nine or so "clans" in this game for a long time coming. The official website has its own setlist in Japanese that we can go from for set numbers: http://fecipher.jp/cards/BT0001.html

    Since we're already grouping cards under their character name, it should be a matter of having the card's actual name in the set and then linking over to its Cipher page in the setlist. The downside to how we have it now is that if there's too many cards in a single character's page, all of those PNG files are going to cause slow load times for some users.

    We should also establish how we're going to call the different colors as well. Do we just say red and blue? What about the Hoshido/Nohr sides where the border is white/black but the interior circles are pink/purple? And what if the game does get villains from the Archanea/Ylisse universes that are red/blue but have different symbols since they're not on Marth's/Chrom's side? The Japanese Cipher wiki was referring to cards from Marth's side as War of Darkness cards and Chrom's as Awakening cards, but made the jump to the official site's terminology after it revamped. The official website calls them Sword of Light (光の剣) and Brand of the Exalt (聖痕 Seikon; stigmata. IIRC this is what the Brand of the Exalt is called in Japanese, but it's been called the Mark of Naga in fantranslations? I didn't follow Awakening's translation progress that closely). However, the internal file names on the official website for the symbols are icon_ankoku_clear.png and icon_kakusei_clear.png, even in the B01 setlist. That lends credence to the War of Darkness and Awakening translations. Whatever we choose, it needs to be consistently applied to avoid confusion and help the game quickly get a foothold with English-speaking fans.

    These suggestions might be better seen in the SF FE 0 Wiki Updating thread.

    I honestly feel like each card should have it's own page, much akin to the Japanese Cipher. Having multiple cards per character page could get confusing and hard to reference later.

    I definitely agree we need a setlist, and I like the way yours is looking Touya. Would it be better to list cards by the Card ID like the Official Site instead though?

    In reference to a card's classification to a set, I agree that color is too vague to get everything across. I had been using the terms "Shadow Dragon" and "Awakening" in order to help ease people into cards, but yeah with the advent of Nohr and Hoshido being to armies of one single game, using game names as a signifier should be rethought. I like the idea of using the official localization of the Japanese Cipher site terms "Sword of Light" and "Brand of the Exalt", though in my personal opinion I feel "Mark of Naga" would fit better than "Brand of the Exalt". The phrase matches the same structure as that of "Sword of Light" and if I'm not mistaken Mark of Naga is just as correct as Brand of the Exalt, with both being used in the official localization of Awakening.
