Herald of Rebirth Giveaway

It's extremely fulfilling to be a content creator for Flesh and Blood.

I say this as someone who has written extensively for other games, and struggled with feeling underappreciated. The amount of work that goes into writing an article is easily overlooked, perhaps equated with the time it takes to read that article. That's before we consider elements like 'honing your writing skills', 'gaining necessary expertise', and 'suppressing a feeling of imposter syndrome'.

The Flesh and Blood community is extremely welcoming, and also very engaged. You guys respond to what we put out there, in comments on Facebook and Discord and Reddit and even in game shops. And ultimately, that community engagement is what many of us are in this for. We want to put our thoughts out there to start a discussion. So thank you all for that.

The company behind Flesh and Blood- Legend Story Studios- is unusually engaged with their community. They may produce what we all consume, but they're also out in the audience when we write. I know this because, when they reached out to me to write about Skirmish Season 4, they cited specific articles I'd written and the way I approach the subject matter in their explanation for why they chose me for the role. They're reading. They're connected. They're interested.

Which leads us to this: a Content Creator kit, sent to the Rathe Times with a letter of appreciation for not just what we do here, but for how the community has engaged with it. These cards and playmats are a thank you to the fans at all levels. And to reflect that, these promos will be given out in a way consistent with that.

The Rathe Times is a collaborative creation. As such, the first promos to be given out will go to a few of our most prolific and committed contributors. Many of these authors are why we can keep a regular content schedule. They meet deadlines, pick up dropped schedule slots, and consistently deliver high quality content.

A total of 16 sets of red, yellow, and blue Herand of Rebirths- along with 2 playmats from Monarch- will be given out in conjunction with the launching of our new Discussions section of the website. To enter, we ask that you join in a conversation- or start a new one.

8 Herald winners and 2 playmat winners will be randomly chosen from among subscribers who comment. All of our authors are paid, and subscribers make that possible. They believe in the Rathe Times, and appreciate the content we produce. Plus, subscribing gives them access to audio narration for at least 1 article a week, along with Pro Series articles written with the highest standards for quality and content- articles written not as 'secret sauce for the paying elite', but as thoughtful pieces from skilled players.

Another 8 winners will be randomly chosen from all comments by readers. All winners will be chosen on June 12th.

(One entry per person, regardless of how many comments you leave.)

Thank you so much for your continued support of the Rathe Times! Enjoy the new Discussions area, and keep tuning in for more amazing content!

I remember when I first stumbled on the Rathe Times. I had just found the game and was scrambling to consume content when suddenly, like Indiana Jones first laying eyes on the treasure, I found a place where my passion for writing and collecting meet. Thank you for creating an amazing place that has introduced me to awesome and talented people.

I’ve been playing the game for about a year and still remember going down to Alexandria Games on a Wednesday to buy some MtG cards but saw a small group of guys in the back room. They were talking about Flesh and Blood. Alex happened to be there with a couple other guys trying to establish a community for Flesh and Blood in our area. Alex asked if I wanted to learn to play and I was all for it as I am always willing to try something new and I wanted to try another card game as no one really “plays” Pokémon around here and I had no idea to possibly get back into Yu-Gi-Oh. He showed me how to play Bravo for blitz. Played a couple matches and then he asked if I’d want to come back the following week. I said sure and he offered me a pre built deck that he had. Actually; he gave me the pick of what he had. I asked him to explain the classes and he gave me an idea of what to play. I thought I liked the sound of wizard and asked for Kano and he looked me dead in the eye and said, “So, you’re going to be that guy, huh?” Now I love the variety of the game and seldom play the same hero two weeks in a row and even feel spontaneous after a long day of work and try throwing something together in 15-25 minutes and see if it works.
