Team FE Presents Extra Life: Day 3, Nov. 17 11a – 11p PT

I’m back, with an update on Team FE’s third day of exciting Fire Emblem themed shenanigans! We’re set to go live in about 20 hours, and if you thought Day 2 was a doozy, you’re not ready for Day 3. Before that though, an update on our Day 2 success, and a reminder of what we’re doing this all for.

Team FE was able to raise $3,245 in our first two 12-hour days, which is absolutely amazing! Considering that last year, our single day, 24-hour straight event brought in roughly that same amount ($3,540), things have been going quite smoothly and in my opinion, just as successfully. We’ve still got a lot planned, and with the 24th being our last day, we have to make the second half of this event a memorable one.

Where last year’s focus was on speedgaming, this year has highlighted a metric ton of voice talent in the franchise, bringing in six voice actors on-stream during our event so far, not counting the ones joining us tomorrow, or others that offered up autographs for signing merchandise. Speaking of…our schedule for November 17th foresees special appearances by a high range of talented voice actors in the Fire Emblem franchise, including:

Aside from our voice actors, you can see games played by familiar faces, including Kirbymastah, Mekkah, Gwimpage, Lord Raven (not our Staff’s Raven) and a strange amalgamation of Team FE members that may even include yours truly. for a rousing game of Quiplash. Finally, we’ll be highlighting several artists during some interview sessions, such as reappearances from SF’s ciarre and Reddit’s Tecchen, as well as a new contributor to our event, 24914. If you miss a chance to interact with anyone but want to score a second chance, either visit our forums, hang out at the subreddits, or for the voice actors, check out their Twitter profiles and Unlocked* profiles. With so many big names coming aboard, you won’t want to miss tomorrow!

As far as Unlocked goes, it’s an iOS app (in Beta for Android devices as I type this), which allows fans to engage in conversation with voice actors, artists, cosplayers and other big names within the anime and gaming community, via livestreaming through mobile devices (sort of like Facebook Live). David Vincent is one of the creative minds behind this app’s existence, and it’s pretty fun to use. I’ve had my fair share of conversations with voice actors that joined us this year, and it’s a great way to support talented contributors to the things that make games as enjoyable as they are.

Heroes: November 7 FEH Channel Summary

It’s that time again! Feh can’t fly south for the winter, as she has quite a bit of work to do, making cheese fondue and deliver to us, the next Feh Channel! Click here to re-watch it (or watch it for the first time, in case you missed it).

As always, FEH Channel kicks off with Feh giving us some interesting news. This time, it featured a Heroic Grail, which allows you to, when spent, allows you to summon up to twenty new four-star versions of a Grand Hero Battle or Tempest Trial+ reward unit.

They appear to cost 100 + 50*times summoned (up to the first 9 summons). From the 10th onward, it’s a flat 500 Heroic Grails per.

For convenience, we receive 200 Heroic Grails for free. Now you can +10 those Grand Hero Battle units!

Heroes: New “Adrift” Banner

A nice surprise came today for Summoners, informing us of the new upcoming Harvest season banner, and its four new Heroes. This banner does give us our fourth Camilla alt, but it also gives us an entirely new character, Mikoto, from Fire Emblem Fates.

Part of this banner includes the introduction of a few new skills, one of which appears to negate meta-defining skills like Quick Riposte and Bold Fighter entirely. Other skills look pretty neat, so place value where you feel it belongs, as always.

Adrift comes with a Paralogue chapter series, and kicks off the morning after the next Feh Channel update, on November 8 at 11p PT. It also brings news of the next upcoming Tempest Trials+ reward unit, Azura: Young Songstress. Could this be the game’s second free Dancer? I’d be excited for that!
