Introduction

Hello All!

I have undertaken a project to create half-card English proxies for each set of Fire Emblem Cipher.  The purpose behind the project is to increase the accessibility for newcomers into the game.  It is recommended to double-sleeve all cards using the proxies:  sleeving the card in a perfect fit sleeve, and then the proxy and card into a sleeve with a non-transparent back (like KMC Matte Sleeves).

Early 'Proof of Concept' Photos

EDIT:  Summary on recent work.

The following changes are included in the second run:

  • Characters with more than 2 skills will now have their absent skills included.
  • Characters with more than 1 support skill will now have their absent skills included.
  • To reduce the quantity of ink, actual card backgrounds were substituted for the solid black background.
  • Skills are now surround by their own background (similar to the cipher cards).
  • To save space, the bottom half off the proxy was condensed.
  • Skills with leading icons now have the icons present.

This is a great effort and I'm glad you're working on it! Any reason you're making them in such a low resolution, though? 

Thanks for the feedback!

I agree, the low resolution may be problem.  The 'Bond' icon, especially, is difficult to decipher (between 1, 2, or 3).  Once I finish the first booster set (by tomorrow), I'll look at revising my methodology to allow for a higher resolution (and update my current sets accordingly).

I was considering making a redux for the translation of the cipher cards once all 4 currently canon Japan games (4, 5, 6, and 12) were all redone to have improved consistency with english localizations and whenever the Hasha manga also got updated (An example; "Marth: Prince of the Alliance" should ACTUALLY be "Marth: Prince of the League" since the Archanea Alliance was localized as the Archanean League, but that's just the top of my head example)

In the meanwhile, this is most definitely a good effort for the current translation work and I am very excited to see it happening while the games and hasha get sorted out (currently focusing on contributing to the FE12 fan translation). Keep up the good work, and hopefully someday soon I'll be able to put in some effort of my own

Thank you!  I am hoping to have the first run of all sets done by the end of the month.  Or at least, over 50% of them.

If you do happen to update certain translations, please let me know.  I'll update the proxies accordingly.

I'm excitedly following your progress! I'm not sure the card image backgrounds are doing much for you and I think the reworked configuration at the bottom may be sacrificing some of the legibility, especially from across the table, that the first run had, especially without a color indicator. Saving ink is a real thing, though, so keeping black text on white at the top does probably make sense.

You're making progress on getting all the information on there! Quotes... probably are ambitious, given their length and how much space you need to get the same rules text in English.

Thanks again for feedback!   It is very helpful.

I have received similar comments regarding the bottom portion of the proxy; it would benefit players to have some sort of color contrast.  

I am currently working on a design that is similar in style to the cipher cards, while providing the real estate needed for text.  Stay tuned!

Love the concept and already made several copies to use.

One note: for starter deck 5 (PoR), you switched Greil's card for another Marcia that's not in the deck. Only thing I've noticed so far.

Thanks for all your effort! It'll let me and my brother finally play now.

Just finished an initial check for Booster Box 5. Only found a few errors:

Missing - Sophia, Prophet of the Hidden Village
Labeled as PR05-008PR on the wiki

Extra - Caeda, Mystical Pegasus Knight
Labeled incorrectly on the wiki as B05-006HN, when it should be B04-006HN

Incorrect - Lilina, Lady of Ostia
Her first support skill has the name and support type of her second support skill, while her second support skill itself is missing entirely.

Incorrect - Roy, Young Lord of Pherae
Same as Lilina.

Other than that, the set is really nice. Thanks again for all your hard work! I'll try to let you know should I find anything else. Good luck.
