The Rathe Times Promo giveaway
We've been running giveaways for some time over on FaB DB, but it's time we did some of our own special promos! (Ed - YEAH! Take that, FaB DB!!!)
With that in mind, we have 20 play sets of the Promo Rainbow Foil Herald of Protection to give away. Yes, full play sets - blue, yellow, and red!!! In addition, we also have a Herald of Protection play mat for the top reader!
So how do you get your hands on this sweet, sweet loot? Well, it's very easy!
Did you know?
Oh we're all about the giveaways, and the tidbits of knowledge. Like this one! Find more of these around the site, and unlock incredible treasures!
Around the site we've embedded these callouts (over on the right! - Ed) on several articles. All you have to do is register on the Rathe Times and comment on at least two of those articles, adding to the discussion there. Your comment must be a valid contribution to the discussion on that article (ie. spammy comments will not be accepted and simply removed). This article doesn't count ;)
If you do so, and your comments are accepted - you'll go in the draw to win 1 of 20 of our foil promo play sets. Additionally, those readers that find every single callout, will go in the draw for the Herald of Protection play mat!
Please note, comments lodged before this giveaway was published will not be included!
And we're not done there!
Finally, we're going to contribute some of our own swag to the competition as well. One lucky winner will win a FaB DB "Battle at the Peak" Alpha play mat and a Fabled subscription (a fabled subscription is a lifetime membership! Woah! :O)
So what are you waiting for? Go find the callouts (not the one on this page! :P), contribute to the discussion and go into the draw!
The competition will be drawn on the 14th September, 2021 @ 2pm AEST, with swag posted that same day.
And to those that win, don't forget to track your new cards in the FaB DB Collection Manager! ;)
Drawing the prizes!
This competition was absolutely phenomenal. Of the several hundred readers that entered, 51 found at least 2 articles with the callouts, but only 15 found all 5!

These promos look fantastic, good luck to everybody! Enjoy the content while you look around for the callouts :P
Very cool! I like you added the Fabled subscription to the give away.
Awesome way to give back and grow the community of FaB!
Amazing! Can't wait to reread all those articles again looking for the call outs! Gotta catch them all (oops, wrong game 😜)
Great post! Should be a fun contest.
Really excited about this, the promos look amazing!
Thanks for doing this! Quick question, is the drawing in September of next year?
Awesome giveaway, and sick mat too!
These Promos look great, Very excited for the giveaway.
Great way to promote engagement! I think as a fledgling TCG, Discussion is one of the keys to helping grow the player base and develop invested players.
One more reason I'm happy to be supporting y'all. Thanks for running this giveaway!
Great idea for a promo :) going to go re-read some articles!
Does this comment count since there's a callout?
Are the promo cold foil also or just extended art? Either way they look great
Fantastic contest. I've been meaning to dig around the site more and this is a great incentive to check everything out.
Such a wonderful giveaway promotion! I’ve read a bunch so need to comment more! 😍
Just wanted to say i enjoy stuff like this and you guys are great for doing this. Any promo stuff for this great game is always welcomed
This is awesome and much appreciated. Thanks fir the chance on this stuff.
Long time lurker but I made an account for this. Ya'll are awesome. Thanks for putting this up.
talking about promos, i framed up all fo the foil heralds from Monarch 1st edition in a photo frame and have is hung on my wall behind my computer. liked them till this day~~
Really are beautiful promos. What is it about promos like this that make you get all giddy?!? I love this site set up and narrated articles so so nice!
@INTREPION no - the callout on this page does not count. @CINCITYGAMES haha, nice find - no, September 14th, 2021 - we've fixed that :)
@kylem - they're Rainbow foil promos.
Wonderful a scavenger hunt :) lets get cracking ....
Such a clever & fun concept for the giveaway! My fave so far, alongside Freyja's. Good luck everyone!
These Promos and the playmat are looking FABulous. Especially for a Prism gamer ^^
Great giveaway. No restrictions to location? May the whole world join?
@vincent - yes, the entire world may join, we will send the gifts wherever we can. Please note, that some locations are actually off limits for global post, if that happens we'll work something else out :)
I started reading articles from TheRatheTime the day I heard about FaB (a few months back) and have been lurking since, but as for most platforms, never took the time to create an account (after all, why would it be needed to create an account on a blog-type website). Having a look at that free pro-series articles, and considering this offer, I guess it's time to join the boat. Thanks for the giveaway, and thanks for the great content. Keep up the good work.
Nice giveaway, but I am confused wheter comments here count or not? And seeing as you are the developer of Fab Db, are there plans to bring the mobile and desktop functionability closer to each other? I like using FabDb on the Desktop, but on the phone it feels a bit clunky andI miss options like the sideboard.
Awesome giveaway! This site has helped me immensely with learning Katsu and the different playstyles you choose from for the hero.
@CATS - it is immensely hard to get it working across all devices, and I have worked very hard to get features such as the deck builder working on mobile. I'm always working on it, and there are definitely some areas I want to improve (such as the collection manager).
The herald promos look so sick! The playmat would be nice as well, but this definitely gave me a reason to register and stop reading as a guest.
damn, my favorite herald are in full art foils!? sign me up
The playmat is absolutely beautiful! I've been reading your articles for some time, now this giveaway pushed me from being a lurker to being a commenter :)
These promos are solid! Excited Rathe is getting some love
Great idea with this promotion!
Good luck everyone. Sweet promos, I love Prism.
Awesome promotion!!! Wearing my reading glasses now. :)
All the best everyone! Let the hunt begin!
Best of luck to all, that playset looks awesome. Fingers crossed and thanks for putting this promo on!
Love the full art heralds. Prism getting so much love. Happy hunting everyone!
I'm in it to win it, Brother. Thanks for the great content and the giveaway!
Great idea! Absolutely love the content in the page! Now to go hunt.
Hah! A neat way to generate clicks on your site, as well as to have everyone at least a little engaged in the community. You're killing two birds with one stone here or - as we say in Poland - bake two roasts on one rotisserie!
Awesome give away. I will start looking for the tidbits.
Awesome giveaway! Good luck everyone!
Karol just made me realize I need to visit Poland, had no idea roasts were ever cook on a rotisserie! But I like the saying, might start making "2 Chickens, 1 Rotisserie!" a thing.
Looks awesome, good luck everybody!
Good luck to all entrants
@KAROL - clicks mean nothing here, we have no ads ;)
These promos are gorgeous! Would love to pimp out my prism deck!
I love giveaways! This is a cool idea!
Good luck everyone! Thats awesome
Really nice idea. As a new player, I've found the site to be really helpful so far, and hope giveaways like these continue to build a welcoming community.
It's cool LSS found a nice way to juice the traffic to content creators
That's nice! Thank you so much!
what exactly counts as a callout? i've been scouring the site but i can't find anything that seems obviously for this giveaway.
The "Did You Know" boxes.
@LAZAEUS - It's mentioned in the article, and the box on this page also talks about finding them. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how much clearer I can make it :(
Super excited, thanks so much Kirk and The Rathe Times!
This is awesome! I’m so excited!
Oh great :) wow I was not expecting this :)
Congratulations to everyone who won-- and, man, Tommy! Way to go funding all of them! What a cool thing to do.
What a pleasant surprise, thanks The Rathe Times team!!
Congrats to all who won!!
Congratz to all the winners!
