Watermarked PDF

Eberron was born in 2002 when Wizards of the Coast launched a worldwide search for a new campaign setting. 

Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron brings the eponymous campaign setting to the fifth edition of Dungeons & Dragons. This 175 page book gives you everything you need to create an Eberron story or character, exploring the core themes of the setting and the rules to implement them in fifth edition. It includes an overview of Khorvaire and the fantastic city of Sharn, along with a host of background ideas and story hooks.

Playtest material includes the unique races of Eberron, the mystical dragonmarks (including greater dragonmarks and aberrant dragonmarks), and new magic items; this is a living document, and this content will evolve and be updated in response to feedback.

I'll echo the same. I'm a little concerned that this PDF will not be the same as the hardcover version. Nothing that I can see or remember in the PDF makes any mention of updates outside to the PDF itself. Any confirmation on the matter one way or the other would be greatly appreciated.

Keith has confirmed on Twitter that the new book is a new book, and that he can't share any details at the moment.

That has me a little worried. I have the sinking feeling that this has been a paid-for playtest and we won't receive the full book for those that bought this. I hope that I'm wrong about that.

Towards when Wayfinder's Guide first came out in the semi out state it's in I believe Mearls said that if an Eberron hardcover ever came out there would likely be a decent chunk of overlap of the mechanics of the two products, duplicated Races and stuff between them, but some info unique to each one.

"If we do an Eberron print product, we will design it to complement as much as possible what the PDF presents.... Some things, like the artificer, races, and basic world info, will be picked up for a print book, but we want fans to be happy owning both". This was back in July of last year, so who knows if that's still the plan, but that's what the plan was then

I hope this book ends up in print as a hardcover. It's an excellent primer for new players (both new to Eberron and to 5e). I'd also want a second hardcover with a finalized Artificer, some Eberron-specific prestige/subclasses, and let's not forget the kalashtar and psionics. The poor mystic hasn't been touched in a long time.

Mearls said that WGtE would be released as a PoD when they got the Artificer, and I believe Psionics, rules finished. This book WILL NOT be the hardcover they release later this year, but will have a lot of the finished mechanics for the races, classes, etc. that their future release will have.

Why did House Tharashk get there dragon marked Humans removed ? This is one of the features of this younger dragon Marked House? They are the only hose iwht to races barring the same dragon Mark (aberrant not counting since they are not one big family like the others)
Customer avatar
Joe M May 15, 2019 4:32 pm UTC
It is pretty weird yeah, presumably it was done to somewhat simplify the rules as having multiple Races have the same Subrace was a bit clunky mechanically, and they did add the bit about basically pretending to be Human. If I recall Keith has mentioned previously that heirs to the Mark of Finding all had at least a little Orcish blood somewhere down the line, so "mechanical Half-Orcs who look and act pretty much entirely Human" isn't too different

That was jsut a very unice thing for that house that "races" could share the mark
It is even metioned into oen of the books in the guide to eberon part in the end that htis the youngest house is hte only one with 2 reace sharing the mark
and I always interpeted ebbron to make hte standard races mroe interesting for players humans espcially

I highly recommend you listen to the Manifest Zone podcast. You can hear them discuss this very topic. Basically, it boils down to the "humans" that carry the mark have trace amounts of Half-orc blood in their veins that can be manifest in minor physical ways. They will look mostly human, but will actually be some amount of half-orc.

So Sunday I am starting a new Eberron campaign with my amazing group of players; in preparation Ive picked up many of the Eberron 3.5 supplements; is there any word if an update to this pdf will include 5e stat blocks for some of Eberron's most iconic monsters, (quori, etc)?

What are the chances of getting racial feat's for these races? I loved the idea of it for baseline 5E, and would love to see that in here as well. I feel like there might not be all that many people that feel the same as I do about this, but it would be nice. I'm a fan of Changeling's, so Maybe a racial feat that gives it darkvision and something else for its Change Appearance feature, or upgrades it's one or more of it's other features, and have the flavor be something along the lines of your more attuned to your doppelganger half than most. Just a thought. Keep up the good work, Peeps. Love what you put together.

Not official 5e content, but Keith worked on an unofficial supplement companion called Morgrave Miscellany that includes some cool stuff like new Subclasses, Feats for further developing Dragonmarks (Fledgling and Siberys versions of the main 12, stats for Mark of Death, etc) as well as Racial Feats for the Eberron specific Races, as well as a Dragonborn/Warforged combo that's pretty dope

I downloaded the Artificer update for 02/28. Why is it that the concept of item creation is an anathema in 5e? I am unimpressed.
Customer avatar
Finn H March 01, 2019 6:00 am UTC
Was that in the actual book or just the Unearthed Arcana from the website? I don't have this yet myself (waiting for print) but am looking forward to playing an Artificer in the Eberron playtest AL.

You know, everyone also accused them of trying to sell miniatures with 4e, and 3.0. WotC gets accused of all manner of money-grubbing no matter what they do, actually. As far as Paizo, their only selling point is their adventure paths. They're so bad at actually making a game they had to steal one...from WotC. So curb your Paizo worship a bit and dial back the wotc hate, yeah?

And even if they're just trying to sell product...so what? What's wrong with a company trying to make some money.

Plus, the idea that 5e is meant to sell minis when WOTC doesn't actually sell minis (they're all made by licensees) and the edition specifically puts the rules for using minis in a sidebar proves that Shannon L has no idea what they're talking about and is little more than a shill.

As for the original post, 5e does away with the assumption so prevalent in 3.x and 4e that magic items will be common and expected for PCs to scale with the difficulty of the level. That's a good thing, as magic items should be rare treasures, not expected power-ups. It does make the Eberron setting and it's signature Artificer class more difficult to implement, since they were partly built with the assumptions of 3.x in mind, but I think WOTC and Keith Baker have found a nice balance that allows for the setting to exist without undermining the wonderous rarity of magic items in the edition as a whole.

100%. The artificer was in 3.5 basically a way to explore the robust item creation rules in the DMG from a player's perspective. the rules included the ability to target an approximate cost based on spell used, ability given, charges per day/lifetime, etc. What we have in 5e is a list of items with suggested cost, but no view into the design on the back end, meaning a class meant for designing more is fighting an uphill battle.

Concerning lifts. There is very little that I can find published. Mostly, it is from the Sharn Guide (p. 36, 170). I have seen illustrations of the lifts rising up from Cliffside Docks (p. 51, 65). Are there any other illustrations for reference? Is it purely magical or a combination of mechanical and magical? Are the lines of glowing energy just that or is there a filament used to conduct the energy? I was thinking the later, as the personnel lifts would need to stop at various levels to allow people off instead of having people make jump to get off. I am trying to work out the details for when a lift fails. I was thinking that the lifts for people would tend to be round and the cargo lifts rectangular. Not really a functional difference, just aesthetics.

And the soarsled's price? Is it still roughly 38,000 gold?

Is there any chance someone has done a conversion for Waterdeep: Dragon Heist into Sharn and Eberron? If not, can someone creative reading this get on that? I'm trying to do it myself, but I'm a barbarian with Int 8.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
