New Year, New Name — and New Frens

After kicking off 2023 with a bang, we’ve got plenty more in store — starting with a brand new partnership, multiple Lords of Light tournaments, and much more. Let’s intro our new partner and talk about the tourneys!

Introducing our new partner…


Part of our vision for Raini: The Lords of Light (RTLOL for short, if you’re new) has always been to immortalize as much crypto culture and history as possible. Not only are our decks littered with a motley crew of characters that have — for better or worse — made Web3 what it is today, but we’re also looking to partner with projects we like and respect who’d like to be featured in our game.

With that in mind, Chubbiverse — an NFT project with big meme energy and a wonderful community — was a natural choice. Check some of their 2022 accomplishments (from their blog):

2022 — a whale of a year. Surely this calls for some frosting and sprinkles.

“The community got together IRL in New York and Singapore. Some of [the] biggest Wins [have] been gaining 1.8 billion GIPHY views, releasing multiple products (like profiles), and the Chubbishop.

1️⃣ Storytelling NFTs
2️⃣ 1.8 Billion Giphy views
3️⃣ Chubbishop
4️⃣ Profiles
5️⃣ Parties around the world
6️⃣ 7️⃣ Read & Click here to know more”

Big thanks to their co-founders StringStory and SpacePixel helping make this happen — we look forward to working with you in the months ahead!

Lords of Light Tournament Schedule — Q1 2023

Since we’re talking RTLOL cards, let’s check out the tournament schedule for the next couple of months:

  • 1st Prize = one (1) special Legendary RTLOL card
  • Top 10 = one (1) Avalanche RTLOL Spell card (all Rare)
  • Additional prizes to be confirmed soon

Galloping full speed into 2023 — and beyond

That’s right — full speed, wankers.

2022 was a massive year for Raini — we built behind the scenes and laid a rock solid foundation for the future.

In 2023, we’re really looking to hit the ground running in a very visible and public manner — taking both Lords of Light and the entire Rainiverse to the next level.

What’s been seen to-date is just the tip of the iceberg. 🔺
