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.

Serenes Forest Teams Up with Reddit for Extra Life 2018, Starting in 12 Hours!

Denizens of Serenes, if you recall last year’s Extra Life event, and were craving more, well look no further than this post, as we’re about 12 hours away from Team FE’s Extra Life 2018 event!

If you have no idea what I am talking about, then listen up! Myself and others here at Serenes Forest, as well as Reddit’s r/fireemblem and r/FireEmblemHeroes, have teamed up again to create TeamFE to raise money for Extra Life, which helps support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the U.S. November 3rd is Extra Life’s official “Game Day”, which we ran during last year, but after seeing the positive input from both participants and viewers, we decided to throw that one day idea out the window, and come back harder, with four 12-hour shifts of Fire Emblem, spanning across each Saturday in November. As mentioned above, our first day kicks off super in just about 12 hours!

On the 3rd, we’ll be joined by Brianna Knickerbocker (voice of Sakura, Ninian, Charlotte, Est) and Robert Clotworthy (voice of Black Knight, Zelgius, Finn), as well as showcasing gameplay from Reddit mod /u/DarkDogDemon, as well as two big names in the Fire Emblem gameplay community, Kirbymastah and Gwimpage. What are we bringing? Three Fire Emblem games, including one that’ll be sure to garner the attention of Ninian fans.

What about the other days? We’re still ironing out a few things, but I can assure you that there will be quite a bit of voice actor presence, a great variety of games, and even some appearances from other players that you yourselves may recognize, such as AbdallahSmash, PheonixMaster1 and Kyle McCarley (the voice of Alm). This doesn’t even cover the prizes, which includes (but is not limited to) a pretty pile of Fire Emblem Cipher cards,, Cipher box sets, and even artwork donated by Fire Emblem Heroes artist Soeda Ippei. You won’t want to miss it!

Yep, that’s signed by Matt Mercer himself.
