In 2002 Keith Baker won a contest that Wizards of the Coast ran to establish a new setting for Dungeons & Dragons. In 2004 Eberron Campaign Setting was released for D&D 3.5. Fast forward to 5th Edition and we saw the digital release of The Wayfares Guide to Eberron that brought the high-magic, pulp setting into the latest age of the game. Now, 5e is getting a 320-page, hardcover Eberron release when Eberron: Rising from the Last War releases on November 19th of this year.
Featuring several new races, as well as the first official release of a new class since 5th Edition came out, Eberron’s magically powered trains, airships, and mechanical beings will get the treatment they deserve with an overview of the continent of Khorvaire, a gazetteer of the towering city of Sharn, maps of lightning-powered trains and industrial workshops, plus tons of adventure hooks and details on designing adventures set after the Last War.
With the release of Eberron: Rising of the Last War on November 19, the D&D Adventurers League will also be releasing a new season of stories called The Oracle of War. The stories will take players into the Mournlands of Khorvaire in search of hidden treasure over the course of 20 episodes.
Eberron is my favorite setting in D&D and I can not wait to get my grubby little hands on this new book.
