Product History

Five Nations (2005) is a 160-page Eberron supplement for both players and DMs. In it, the heart of Khorvaire is revealed in glorious detail, with comprehensive overviews of each of the Five Nations, full-color maps, plenty of plot hooks and organizations, local color for creating a character from a particular nation, and new prestige classes that exemplify each nation. The result is a wonderful mix of history, travel guide, and rules crunch. It’s obviously most useful for those who adventure in Eberron, but the format also serves as a good guide to creating a campaign atlas for your own home campaign (assuming you don’t mind filing off some serial numbers).

Secrets Every Hero Should Know

What does an elf from Shae Cairdal know about the nation of Aerenal? How do you play a half-orc from the Shadow Marches? What does your character know about the Blood of Vol or the royal line of Galifar? The Player’s Guide to Eberron answers these questions and more. This companion to the Eberron Campaign Setting explores the world from the player’s point of view and presents exciting new options for Eberron characters.

Player’s Guide to Eberron describes important locations, events, organizations, races, and features of the EBERRON campaign setting, organized in an accessible and easily digestible format so that players can use the book as a handy reference guide. In addition, this book provides new feats, prestige classes, spells, and magic items.

Eberron: Sharn, City of Towers

Discover a City Filled with Endless Adventure

Hop aboard a skycoach and hurl yourself into adventure amid the soaring towers of Khorvaire’s most spectacular city. Plunge into perilous aerial battles miles above the earth.

Eberron: The Forge of War

 

The Last War Never Ended

The Treaty of Thronehold stopped the massive march of armies across Khorvaire, but it didn’t put an end to espionage, unrest, and border skirmishes among the nations of Eberron. And no treaty could ever end the horrors that haunt the dreams of every soldier, spy, and adventurer whose life was shattered by a century of warfare.

This supplement for the EBERRON campaign setting presents everything you need to bring the Last War to life in your game, whether you’re playing a character who fought in the war or running adventures that take place during the century of conflict. New character options let you explore battlefield backgrounds, the magic of war, battle scars, and the benefits of working as a team. Campaign seeds help the Dungeon Master introduce the themes and events of the Last War in a current-day campaign or send characters back to their wartime days through flashbacks or actual travel through time. A comprehensive overview of the Last War provides all you need to know about the events, armies, battlefields, and themes of Eberron’s greatest clash of nations.

Product History

The Forge of War (2007) is a 160-page supplement that acts as a history of the hundred-year Last War. It serves as a guide for characters who were affected by that war, and examines the ways in which a major conflict affects the people who manage to live through it.

New Character Options. This chapter both (i) explains the roleplaying hooks and emotional scars that surviving a war might leave and (ii) gives numerous new rules and backgrounds for heroes. Spells, items, armors, artifacts, and warforged components are all introduced. Teamwork benefits help encourage heroes to work together, and magic item sets grow with power as more items in the set are added.
