D&D: Eberron’s Table Of Contents Reveals New Monsters, Magic Items, And More

Eberron: Rising from the Last War might be coming out next week, but here’s your chance to sneak a peek at what’s coming via the Table of Contents.

The internet is a wondrous place. It bridges the past, the present, and the future, all on a glowing superhighway of information. And that’s before you even get to spinning jiffs of skulls and hour long compilations of old vines that are still somehow better than anything else you could be doing with that time. Today, however, we get to look into the future, with the Table of Contents for Eberron: Rising from the Last War, which comes out on Tuesday, but is also available just below this line, thanks to NewbieDM on Twitter.

There are 320 pages, spread out over 6 Chapters, and as before we’ve seen them broken down by section: Character Creation (which gets nearly a hundred pages), the Khorvaire Gazetteer, a section on Sharn, City of Towers, the adventuring in Eberron section, Treasures, and finally the monster manual portion of the book.

Exciting things to take note of: the Group Patrons, which is a great way to tie the party together–either working as part of an organization or, in some cases, as a powerful being’s agents. I love the variety here. You can work as servants of a head of state, or a crime syndicate, which you might expect, but I’m very excited to see what Newspaper or University look like.

Also, take note of the different Adventure seeds in the 4th Chapter, which includes traditional foes like the Lords of Dust and the Order of the Emerald Claw, but also has allies (or fairly indifferent parties) that might complicate things for players, including Gatekeepers, Dhakaani goblins, and more. Accompanying those, you’ll also find classic Eberron foes like the Dolgaunt and Dolgrim, who reflect Quori Quorruption, as well as the variant Zakya Rakshasa, which first appeared in Eberron. It also looks like we get a few new monsters as well.

All of which comes out next Tuesday. So start your weekend off right with this preview.


Happy Adventuring!
