Fire Emblem: Fates Setting

Remember a few months ago I said my retelling of Fire Emblem: Fates will take place beyond the Dragon’s Gate? Well, I just read that (and I may have misread it) the game itself will be taking place beyond the gate! What a lucky coincidence.

On the other hand, I also discovered it takes place shortly after the events of Awakening. My retelling was set to (and still will) take place roughly 820 years after Awakening. Why? Well, I’m not going to give too much away, but I will say it has to do with (among other things) Azura’s necklace, Lehran’s Medallion, Fomortiis and the Darksphere (Sable).

Also Nils is set to be Azura’s father.

If you are still confused, look at the order of tales on my FanFiction profile page. That might clear things up.

That’s all you’re getting about it for now! Hope you aren’t too pissed off about the changes!

Ylisse and Valm Combined Map

Circa 980A.S.

This is the map for the Ylisse and Valm portions of FE:CSR. Little changes between the different arcs, so I’ll only post this one map, then list the changes are in another post, which I will release after I complete Tale 11 (Eliwood’s Tale). If I did so before hand, I’d be giving away spoilers.

You will undoubtedly notice some changes from the game… if you have any questions, leave a comment bellow.

Elibian, Ylissean and Valmese Calendars

While Ylisse and Valm follow the real-world Calendar, the other continents don’t really have established months, so I have to take some creative liberties. With Akaneia, Valentia and Jugdral, well, I’ll get to those when I write them. For now, let’s focus on Elibe.

In Kent and Farina’s support conversations, they mention the names of two months – Pegasus and Archer. That gives me a starting point. Also, at the first screen in FE7 when you first establish your tactician’s information, different affinities are assigned to each real-world month, so I’m going to use those as an influence. As for the days, I figure that since I’m putting Ylisse, Valm and Elibe together on the same world at the same time, I have to align the days and months for continuity (and because I don’t want to overcomplicate things by having solar and lunar calendars, mixed with varying numbering systems).

Below are the Elibean months next to their real-world equivalents.

Saint – January
Bear – February
Wyvern – March
Horse – April
Knight – May
Sage – June
Archer – July
Dragon – August
Roland – September
Hartmut – October
Pegasus – November
Lord – December

Map for Tales 9, 11, and 13

FECSR Elibe map

What it is: A map of Elibe as it was during Tale 9Ax of Fire Emblem: The Complete Saga Rewritten, which takes place give-or-take seven months before 9B (Lyn’s tale).

How I made it: I used an Application called Pixelmator to edit and make additions to the map of Elibe I found on the FE Wiki.

Details:

  • Most nations have been resized.
  • More locations have been named (many are original).
  • Bern has been divided into several Dukedoms.
  • Etruria has been divided into a cluster of counties, with only the prominent houses being named.
  • Borders for the Lycian cantons have been added.
  • Sacae has been divided into territories.
  • Nabata has become colonized by several powers.

Corrections/Edits (I made some mistakes in the map, but out of thoughtlessness didn’t save the file, and I’m not going to redo everything)

  • Avramberg is really Avramsberg
  • ‘Church’s Lands’ is now Churchland
  • There is a dividing line between Caerleon and Reglay, located at the river between them
  • Rolandsport is not a separate canton, so “(Pherae)” doesn’t need to be there

The only difference between the time period this map covers and later time periods is the amount of territories in Sacae. During Tale 9B, the Lorca territory was dissolved into the Shizu Territory; during Tale 12, the Shizu Territory was dissolved into the Kutolah Territory and the Deimo Territory was dissolved into the Djute Territory. In Tale 13, all of Sacae was subjugated by Bern and relegated to the Djute Tribe, who maintained semi-autonomous rule over the lands.

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments and I’ll respond as soon as I can.
