Shadows of the Last War

The follow-up to my 5-star conversion of The Forgotten Forge is now available!

Journey into the Mournland. Discover Whitehearth.

This classic Eberron adventure takes the PCs from Sharn to the goblin nation of Darguun and into the Mournland to brave Whitehearth, one of Eberron's most iconic locations. You know that when Darguun is considered safe and civilized, you are in for a treat.

Shadows of the Last War was originally released in 2004 as an adventure for 2nd-level PCs. It was developed for D&D 3.5 and designed by Keith Baker as a follow up to The Forgotten Forge, the first adventure written for Eberron.

This 30+ page document updates Shadows of the Last War for use with 5th Edition rules. In addition, notes and background information have been added to provide additional context, encounters, and adventure hooks so that the DM can introduce some of their favorite aspects of the Eberron setting. 

Please note that the original adventure is required to use this conversion.


This product includes the following and more:

  • Conversion notes, making all encounters compatible with 5th edition rules.
  • Notes on adapting the encounters to make them easier or harder so as to accomodate a party of different power level than originally intended.
  • Background information on the different encounter locations.
  • Stat blocks for a dozen named NPCs - more than are mentioned in the original adventure
  • Stat blocks for over a dozen monsters, including living spells, new undead, and creatures birthed in the Mournland.
  • New magic items, weapons, and materials, including a warforged component, goodberry wine, a sentient weapon, darkweave, the Talenta tangat, and more.
  • Optional bonus encounters, including encounters in Sharn, Darguun, and the Mournland
  • Rules for the effects of the Mournland and the Dead-Gray Mist
  • Printer-friendly version now included!
Now updated to version 2.0 - This version includes improved compatibility wit Eberron: Rising from the Last War, some minor balance changes to encounters, improved continuity, a new layout and design, and a new cover.

... and continue the story in Whispers of the Vampire's Blade!

Are the maps updated at all?

I included some color-coded maps that should help clarify Whitehearth.

Clarification question: does this require the original or is the Conversion complete in and of itself?

Yes, it requires the original. That's one of the requirements for creating a conversion.

If you need anyone to bounce ideas off of for Whispers of the Vampire's Blade, I'd love to help. I'm the same guy who chatted with you on Reddit before (ClanPsi4), so feel free to message me there.

That's really weird. I'd suggest trying to download it again. Otherwise try contacting customer support at - if they can't help, let me know and I'll do what I can.

You're first two conversions have been a big help. I'm about to switch with my current DM and run those in 5th ed for our group. Do you still have plans to do a conversion document for the other two in this series? If so I know I'd be interested in them.

Glad they helped! I've finished writing on Whispers of the Vampire's Blade, but I'm still working on cartography, editing, layout, etc. It will be out this month, though.

It's finally out! Really really looking forward to Whisper of the Vampires Blade as well. Big fan of both this and the Forgotten Forge version.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
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.
