SF Teams Joins Reddit to Benefit Extra Life on Nov. 4

The past couple of weeks have been busy for me, what with prepping for Serenes Forest’s involvement with an upcoming charity event, Extra Life. This year, several of our own have joined efforts to participate in Extra Life and showcase our tactical prowess.
 
 
 
If you’re not already familiar with Extra Life, it’s a 24-hour themed gaming marathon to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. It’s also a Reddit tradition dating back to 2012. Last year, Team Reddit collectively raised over $176,000. This year, it’s running just as strong, and will take place on November 4th and 5th (12 p – 12 p EST), with heavy involvement from Serenes Forest.

Together, a group of great Fire Emblem players will be playing through 12 Fire Emblem games. Notably, we’re running every English-released Fire Emblem game, as well as Japanese-only Fire Emblem Binding Blade. You’ll recognize some of the bigger names, as well as some more fresh faces in the Fire Emblem speedrunning community: Gwimpage, kirbymastah, Jedi, Deku King, Shephen, LeGrandGrand, N7_Commander_John and Nightbarrel, as well as myself, fill the roster of players showcasing the franchise
 
 
 
We’ve assembled a bunch of raffle gifts, including artwork from quite a few fan-artists, as well as collected both amiibo and merchandise signed by voice actors of the more recent FE games (Erica Lindbeck, Brianna Knickerbocker, Kyle McCarley and Ray Chase, to name a few). Donating will enter you in for a chance to win one of these goodies, and there are over a dozen items up for grabs. Donations can also be aimed at certain incentives, like which version of Fates will be played.
 
 
We’ll also be visited by Greg Chun (voice of Ephraim and Ike in Heroes, and Lukas in Echoes) during the livestream during the Shadows of Valentia run. You won’t want to miss that!
