EVEN IF YOU HAVE PLAYED THE GAMES AND DO NOT WANT TO READ THIS ENTIRE THING: I still highly recommend reading from the prologue, to Chapter 3. These early parts address backstory that was not fully fleshed out in the games, including: 1) Loptous' meeting with Galle, 2) the story of the 12 Crusaders, 3) Arvis' childhood, and 4) the attack on Darna.

Follow me on tumblr, or twitter, for new translations the moment I finish them!

I also do FE game localization vs. Japanese translations and analysis posts, so follow if you are interested in those as well!

Howdy, everyone! Now that I have finished my translation of one of the FE5 novels (aside from minor edits, like updating to fit the new Project Exile naming standards), and the results of my "which should I translate next" poll are out, I have started work on one of the FE4 novels! It claimed 1/4 of the votes, even with other FE4 book options on the poll! Whoa! We as a fandom are really into Jugdral right now!

FE4 is my favorite video game of all time, and I could not be more excited to translate this novel and share this retelling of the story with you all. I've currently translated up to Chapter 1 Part 1. Be sure to follow me at the links above for immediate updates! Of course I'll post here as well, but I mostly use tumblr and twitter, so those will get updated first.

I had no idea there was such a thing as FE novelizations! I'll be following this. Thank you for all the hard work!

Also, wow, the illustrations are very pretty. I think I have a crush on Edain now.

I think I remember someone posting a few of the illustrations a long time ago, as well as some translations of random chapters from the FE4 novels - but I don't think they ever did any translations for this novel in particular. Had no idea there were extra graphics in the novels like those "Genealogy of the Gods" charts or the colored illustrations either, so I'm happy you them as well!
 
Thank you so much for your work in translating this & the FE5 novel! I'm definitely looking forward to reading the rest.

Same here - this is exciting. I found Genealogy's story to be one of the best in the franchise (the first half, on its own, is the best), so it should be interesting to read a more in-depth take on it all. Thank you for your work!

I didn't know there were novelizations for the longest time either! Enjoy!

And if you think you have a crush on Edain now, just wait until she shows up in the actual text... I've read ahead quite a bit, and she gets introduced strong right off the bat.

Yup, you're right - there's someone who translated a good chunk of the short stories. They look to be awesome translations, though I only skimmed them because I want to make my own translations some day. Jugdral is my love and I want to provide my own translation to all the FE novels I can, even if there's some overlap. Enjoy!

There much in-depth goodness to be enjoyed, and even plenty of pre-game plot events detailed in full! I mean, the information is nothing new, but I think it's the first time these events have been provided in full storytelling detail and are quite a treat.

Just popping in to say I really appreciate your work on these.  I've had the pair of FE5 novels for a while and contemplated doing a brief summary translation of each chapter, but thank goodness I discovered your blog before getting too far along.  I'll have to peruse these later.
