I updated the FAQ to reflect this (and other recent questions here) a couple of days ago, after I picked up my copies from Reiner. No English language Fire Spirits seen yet (not even Reiner has any).

From where? They aren't included as standard as they were with the last two decks.

Ordered Sunday night. Received Tuesday.

After reading that no promos would be included I was bummed, but when I opened it up yesterday and saw the Fire Spirit, I was pleasantly surprised.

I didn't get any Fire Spirits in mine... were they in the decks or packaged separately?

Got one Fire Spirit (not two like the Earth Spirits came). Burning quietly at the bottom of the Blessings deck.

Please post the FFG response. I did not get a Fire Spirit in my deck. Sounds like it could be a packaging glitch, as the Blessings deck would only have 30 cards as opposed to the Aqua 31.

Yes, I would like this mystery to be solved before I shell out for my copies...

I encourage others to contact them at their website concerning this as well. I've already waited nearly a week for a response of any kind (even a confirmation that my message was received!) from their customer service staff regarding an issue with a different game.

Broke down and ordered it today, straight from FFG's online store. Waiting with baited breath to see if it's included or not...

Here's the response I received from FFG:

We have yet to decide on a promotion for the Fire Spirit Cards, but it will
be good. Keep checking the site for upcoming information.

Maybe it's like the golden ticket, and I am one of five lucky gamers to tour Fantasy Flight Games game factory!

Seriously, how can I be the only one to get this card? I posted a picture of the card because I was beginning to believe I hallucinated the whole thing.

I don't know, but here's a speculation. (The first bit isn't, the end bit is.) The promotional cards (or at least some of them, maybe all of them) come from that the cards are printed in sheets of 32 or some multiple thereof. That produces spares when a deck contains only 31 or 30 cards, and in recent cases these are the promotional cards. In the case of the Pillar and E&I:A (Earth Spirit) these were left in the decks, but for Khind and Terrah (Water Spirit) and Aqua and E&I:B (Fire Spirit) they were taken out for separate distribution. How the separation works I don't know, but just maybe in your case it was imperfect, leaving the Fire Spirit in the deck.

(Incidentally the spare cards in Vulca and Terrah were the icon summary cards, in Mimix and Flit the cross-promotion cards. If they are/have been reprinted, who knows?)
