Question regarding what playtesters can and cannot reveal

This question is directed more at GtG. So I've been screencapping and printing out the spirit boards and unique powers for Serpent, Wildfire, and Ocean to supplement my PnP spirits. So far, only the spirit panels for Thunderspeaker and Rampant Green have been revealed by means of the two sets of videos Chris Burton made (I think I spelled your name wrong before, sorry). Is it alright if I ask a playtester what the unique power cards are for Rampant Green and Thunderspeaker? I wanted to check with GtG first, because if it is a grey area I didn't want to put any playtesters in an awkward situation.

I also decided to post this here rather than PM someone in case others were wondering the same thing. I totally understand if they cannot reveal this information, I would just like to be able to play with as many spirits as possible while I wait for the official release and the Events deck that's coming with it.

Typically everything is under the category of "things GtG get to reveal" so we tend to not say anything.  That is pretty much the standing rule from GtG to us.  We just don't say anything except things like "Spread of Rampant Green is awesome and hates lawn-mowers."  (both true)

Yeah, if the playtesters haven't been given the go-ahead to reveal information, then they tend not to say anything. We get pretty serious about that. :-)

Follow up: Does >G supply playtesters with smoke bombs, or are they instructed on how to make their own?

You bring your homemade smoke bombs to tryouts. Whether or not you get in depends on how well they perform.

Of course, if they don't work well during tryouts, well... Let's say some folks don't make it out of the first round...

I found it also works if you just dogmatically deny you were ever there.  It looks silly, but hey, it's the internet, no one can really prove anything on here.

Christopher once gave me an official Smoke Bomb. I have been keeping it for a special occasion.


Just assume I'm always doing that.

Damn it, Ronway!

Silverleaf walks into GtG booth at a convention.

"Wow Christopher, that Young Legacy Promo sure is gorgeous, can I look at it?"

"Sure Silverleaf, you are clearly trustworthy and not a ninja."

"Smoke Bomb!"

Silverleaf walks out, card in hand while Christopher is stunned by her incredible use of official GtG power.

Some playtesters reveal more than is necessary

*looks at Ronway's lack of pants*
