I love writing these teasers, so I wanted to make sure to get this out ASAP. This story arc is one of the most beloved of the entire show, so we wanted to get it right. There will be more design articles to come during preview season, and those will shed light on the development process and some of the ways we approached themes and cohesive mechanics in the set, but I’ll leave that for later. For now, let’s just get on with the juicy tidbits you all came here for. I present to you some really cool things that will be featured in Undaunted Raid.
