Writing a quick blog post to introduce myself. I am Zak, a new member of the translation team. We're now referring to ourselves as the Heroes of Shadow, for 3 reasons:

  1. The name is relevant to the Fire Emblem game we are working on
  2. It sounds cool, and not cliche, because if Fire Emblem can get away with it, so can we
  3. See reason 1 again
Anyway, I'll be working on editing graphics for the game, replacing graphical text and tidying up images and whatnot. I also created the new banner for the site, so hopefully that means I'll get a pay rise soon. I can dream, right?

That's about all, so now that I've said 'hi' I shall retreat and probably start playing Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon for research purposes. Yes. Research purposes...



  1. I see... So, welcome to the team! I'm happy to know that the team finally has a name (really well chosen) and also has found someone other to edit graphics, I hope the graphics that are problematic will be able to be edited by you of course... Anyway, good luck for your work in this team! I'm looking forward for the progress, even if it seems good progress have been done recently.

  2. Yeah, I like the name. I hope your "research purposes" go well. Haha. xD

  3. I just want to say that the banner is making me grin a little bit more than usual. :D

  4. I'm liking the banner! Good luck with everything!

  5. It's good to hear that, and their name sounds great too, very aproppiate for the game hahaha, anyway I hope Zak makes a good job just like the others, and I'm not sure about this, but I think you can reuse many of the shadow dragon graphic text and put it in this game, you don't lose anything trying do you? anyway good luck with the translation!!

  6. Great job on the banner! But where did you get the female version of MU? I've never seen her before. Or did you design her yourself?

  7. It's the official artwork from nintendo

  8. its great to hear that another person is also working on the translation. dont give up!!
