Preview contains info on:

Jonas the Kind - Seems powerful. The option to guarantee a success is huge.

New token Symbol - Charge - Ignores Armor, but you can no longer block.
Not sure how great this is. Heroes have more shields then enemies.

Caught in the Web Scenario
Bad Guy - Ariad
Token is 2 charge/ 1 damage (neither gold)
1 surge - 2 damage
2 surge - enemy takes 1 damage for each action!

The two surge looks strong, but since Ariad doesn't have a surge you will only get it with the double token. Fairly easy to counter I think.

I like the Scenario. I think it will fill the gap between the dragon scenario - easy, and the undead scenario - difficult.

Well there is the Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) – Queen Ariad Lieutenant Pack, which comes with a miniature. Probably too big for Runebound though

For now. Maybe one day we'll have elusive monsters rolling a set of tokens full of shields. Or maybe we won't, but I kinda like the opportunities that different symbols open

The spider from Mice and Mystics might work.

But if you fail to counter it even once it will come to bite you, especially if it happens in 1st round.

I like how interacting with the quest events gives trophies(and sometimes even gold). In Dragon scenario it was choice between collecting Lore or getting stronger.

You can get it without the doubler token, just roll 2x surge? (25% chance)

It only lasts for 1 combat round though, not the whole combat.
