About the site.
Soul Survivor is a shrine and fanlisting dedicated to the character Lyn from the video game Fire Emblem (also known as Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken or Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade) found on the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo Wii U Virtual Console. The fanlisting was opened on March 26, 2004, and was turned into a shrine some time later. Soul Survivor is my oldest site online.
When I first opened Soul Survivor the site was solely a fanlisting. Shortly after that I discovered shrines and decided to turn her fanlisting into a shrine as well. However, it would be a good many years after that before the site really had anything I'd actually call "content" (or at least what I consider content nowadays). Still, it was something I never gave up on, and after nine years I could finally call the site complete. It's crazy to think this is my oldest site online. I've loved Lyn for well over ten years and my love for her has never once died down. She has forever remained my favorite girl in the entire Fire Emblem series. Having said that it's little wonder that I've had Soul Survivor for so long. Hopefully the site will stick around for a long while yet!
The name for the shrine was actually a typo, but one that I've been happy to stick with for all these years. I had actually meant to go with "sole", because she was the last remaining member of her tribe, but instead used "soul" because I thought that was how it was actually spelled. Whoops! It's okay though, because I think it looks better, and could possibly have some cool deeper meaning I don't know about (I swear I'll look it up one day!). All I know is I like it and don't plan to change it ever.
Currently we are on version 17 of the site which features Lyn's Brave Lady Fire Emblem Heroes artwork. To be honest, I had originally made this layout almost a year ago, but never got around to finishing it. Looking to motivate myself to work on something website related I decided to pick up this old layout and give it another go. After changing a few colors and fixing a few coding problems I'm super happy with how it all turned out. The layout was made by me using Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and then coded by hand in Notepad. The images used were found at Fire Emblem Wiki and patterns used were found at Subtle Patterns. Fonts used are called Gill Sans MT Ext Condensed Bold and Calisto MT. Credit goes to Wikipedia, Fire Emblem Wiki, and IGN for some information used on this site. Previous layouts used may be found at my layout archive.
