If you enjoy drafting, or if you've never tried it before, you won't want to miss today's feature!

Are there different deck building rules for booster draft? I noticed you took to burning incense and two panic demon (gold). Are there any other differing rules?
By the way awesome video, I really want to play booster draft now!
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and all your strength.

Great questions! Yes, booster does have different deck building rules than T1 or T2. In the "Tournament Host Guide" it gives the following explanation.

Quote
Booster Draft (Multi-Player only)
Players build their decks from at least six expansion packs of cards. Each player is given one of each type of booster from six expansion sets as determined by the host. These can include Unlimited Edition, Prophets, Apostles, Patriarchs, Kings, Angel Wars, Priests, Thesaurus Ex Preteritus, and Disciples. Another option is that the host may supply each player with a Faith of Our Fathers or Rock of Ages tin.
Note: the host is allowed to give each player more than six booster packs but, six are what are normally provided.
Players sit at their first-round multi-player table.
-Each player is responsible for bringing 8 regular lost soul cards (no special abilities) to the table. You will need 7 lost soul cards if you play a 50 to 56 card deck. You will need 8 lost soul cards if you play a
56 to 63 card deck. If you pull a lost soul card from a pack then you can substitute it for one that you brought to the table. This is the only way you will be able to play a lost soul card that has a special ability. - Players look at the cards they drafted and have ten minutes to assemble a deck. Each player will have at least 54 cards and are allowed to remove cards if they wish. Each player adds the appropriate number of lost soul cards to their deck to make it legal. When players finish building their decks (or when deck- building time has expired), and after a referee has checked their deck to confirm that it is legal, play begins.
- Players must play a minimum of fifty cards in their decks.

You can use any card that you draft, including duplicates! You still cannot have duplicate unique characters in play though, even if you have them in your deck. Although it's not stated in the explanation above, I've been taught that we are not allowed to use multiples of the same Dominant in our booster draft deck. But in all my years of playing Redemption and hosting tournaments I've never seen anyone get duplicates of a Dominant in their draft. I guess nobody wants to pass me a 2nd Falling Away. ;)

If that is an official rule it should be in there, I've seen at least one person draft multiple Destruction of Nehusthan (aren't TexP and Disciples fun) and we didn't find any reason to disallow it in the rules.

Today's feature is the 2nd installment of "Real Rulings With Redoubter". Check it out to gain a better understanding of one of the more difficult to grasp abilities in Redemption!

Andy, I'll shoot you a PM, but I'd like to let everyone know that this is a community project and I will publish any quality content that's submitted. I welcome content from anyone who is inspired to talk about something Redemption related and share insight with a demographic of the Redemption community.

Speaking of insight, two of the front runners for this project have returned for today's feature. You won't want to miss it!

There are two articles regarding the 2011 set, one on Tower of Thebez/Canaanites (http://cactusgamedesign.com/red_game_articles_2011-1.php) and another on Iron Pan/Babylonians (http://cactusgamedesign.com/red_game_articles_2011-2.php) that I think are very good- perhaps need a little updating but they may be helpful to add to LOR.

The podcast seems to have been cut off during the uploading process, unless you decided to end it there. It's a bit abrupt.

Technical difficulties. Not sure what happened. I've uploaded the file again and it's all there now. Sorry, folks.

Been reading and enjoying every day.

If you take suggestions for articles, I would really like to see an interview with Travis Brown (uthminister) about all of the things he is working on at TLG.

Thanks for your feedback, Matt. I've talked with Travis about ways he might contribute to LoR. We do have plans for the future but those depend entirely on his time. I know he's been investing heavily in Three Lions Gaming after his recent purchase of the business.

Coming up this week on LoR we can look forward to:
  • A new episode of "Real Rulings with Redoubter"
  • A brigade and theme overview from a new author
  • A new episode of "Resurrecting Old Treasures"
  • A new "Redemption Metagaming" podcast
  • The regular Friday devotion
And possibly more!

Either I'm a better deck builder than I thought, or something, because I have a clay deck with Saul/Paul, Rhoda, Ananias of Damascus, Paul's disciples and several others mentioned in today's article. Not all of course, but enough that it looks eerily similar. Once again Land of Redemption has done it again, and given me a few cards I might add to improve my clay deck. Hehehe. :)
Great articles, great authors keep it up.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and all your strength.

In light of some of the recent discussions we've had on the boards, Joey's article today has some great application for us as a community!

Life happens and some of our regular authors haven't had a chance to submit their content, making this a slow week at Land of Redemption. I'd like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that Land of Redemption is a community project. If you have something you're inspired to write about, please contact me via private message and I'll work with you to publish your content. Anyone who's been playing this game for a while, hosting a play group or tournaments, has something of value to offer to others.

On the horizon... Rob has given me permission to preview a card we're testing in the new set. I'm not sure yet what day that will go live, but you can look for it next week.

im hoping to at some point tonight to record my tutorial but I think I might have to make this project a series to cover the basics like some about the game, how to play, how to win, what happens to start the game and going through the phases of each turn

God is good and has given us each gifts. I'm just using what he's given me. But my effort is small compared to that of all of our contributors. The site wouldn't be exciting or successful without them!
