SAMPLE PROMO-000

Three days before Christmas on 22nd December 2021 the Grand Archive developers announced Lorraine, Festive Night as holiday promotional card in Kickstarter update #7.

Illustrated by 十尾 and announced at the same time as the Clarent, Sword of Peace Kickstarter promo, the SAMPLE PROMO-000 Lorraine, Festive Night was the first Grand Archive promo card to be revealed in full.

Being a sample card itself, this card - with its ability to allow all players to win simultaneously - is sadly not tournament legal.

Trivia: Despite featuring a different name and artwork, Lorraine, Festive Night is officially regarded as the 3rd iteration of the Lorraine, Wandering Warrior sample cards.

This was the first card printed to feature Silvie, and the first card to include two champions in its artwork.

Variants

Two foil variants of the Lorraine, Festive Night card were released together: star foil and normal foil.

Star foil features a layer of holofoil star outlines of various shapes between the background and the two champions. Presumably as an oversight, the star foil pattern also covers the material cost and life count icons.

The developers later went on to publicly say that they weren’t fond of the foil that had been applied to the Lorraine, Festive Night samples, saying that it was too much and took away from the artwork in general.

Distribution

Lorraine, Festive Night normal foil and star foil both have an official population of between 300 and 500 copies.

The normal foil card was given as a freebie to all Champion Tier, Grand Champion Tier and Designer Tier Kickstarter backers (148 total), with an additional 100 backers chosen at random to receive the card.

Both the normal foil and star foil were given out individually in Discord events and content creator giveaways (see Individual card giveaways below).

The star foil card also appears in SAMPLE (1 in 3 chance) and SAMPLE2 (1 in 6 chance) promotional packs.
