The continent of Vaelor has known peace for decades under the rule of Farna. After a bloody war remembered vividly by the elderly, the young have grown up in a world ruled by religion. Farna governs from the Citadel, a grand castle at Vaelor’s center. The nations of Ilden, Rivale and Gerra are bound to their decisions by treaty, each forced to adopt Farna’s beliefs and submit to their will. Is freedom worth reliving the tragedy of long ago?
Faith and Blood is a custom project that uses FE8 as a base for a new game. It started as a loose collection of ideas I gathered over my years playing Fire Emblem. Eventually these ideas began to be refined in my head and I started to write out a plan for a fangame. When 7743’s FEBuilder was released, I started messing around with the program and shortly after the formal project was born. I’m thankful for those who’ve contributed the hacking resources that allowed me the opportunity to make something from my ideas. For those playing, I hope you potentially start to get creative and find your own ideas to invest in. More importantly, have fun! Faith and Blood presents challenging gameplay with incentive for player action rather than reaction, as well as a serious story driven by its characters. Feedback is encouraged and I’m always hoping to improve the project!
Streamlined Skill System- Excluding Canto and Steal, each unit and boss only have 2 skills- a personal that acts as a quirk or incentive to using them in addition to a map movement skill(Shove, Swap, Reposition, etc.) based on their class.
Class and Item Rebalancing- Adjustments to class and weapon stats to make each class useful in their own niche, without overpowering the others(Knights gain swords and lances for example, while cavaliers are mono-weapon). Split promotion classes have trade-offs to make your choices matter!
Varied Objectives- Escape, Defend, Seize, Defeat boss(or bosses) and Rout are all present! Chapters always present something new.
Thoughtful Resource Management- Gold is available, but not plentiful. Basic supplies are common, but you will have to make choices about which advanced items to invest in!
An Original Story, Setting and Cast- A new conflict to experience and world to learn about with 24 playable characters in this release!
No Route Split, No Ports- I intend on finishing this project 😛
