“Now is the time, great Knights of Eldraine, the bravest of the brave, to wield our swords against the darkness. For we fight with valor in our hearts and fire in our veins. In the vast reaches of Eldraine, we will find a truth that lies deeper than the folklore and fables passed through generations of our people. We will confront fabled beasts, mythical creatures and powerful sorcery. I pray our adventures, our battles, will not prevent us from returning to our homes, to share stories of the freedom we have defended, and the darkness we have defeated.”
