Welcome back, Ashes players!

Today we will dive into more mechanical and philosophical changes being developed for Ashes Reborn! In our last article, we covered some timing and resolution updates to the game, so this time we will dive into the crunchy topic of combat changes, as well as reflect on dice economy within the game.
