Exploring Eberron

Join Eberron setting creator Keith Baker in this tour through the lands, oceans, and planes of Eberron. Exploring Eberron presents Keith's vision of Eberron like never before, with fresh lore and rich illustrations to bring the setting to life.
 
In this book, Keith takes players and Dungeon Masters on a thrilling dive into the world of Eberron. Encounter the monstrous folk of Droaam, the goblinoid Heirs of Dhakaan, the Mror dwarves and their Realm Below, and the sahuagin and merfolk dwelling beneath the waves. Embrace faiths of altruism, pragmatism, and darkness. Browse the tomes of Dolurrh’s Vault of Memories, seek the Amaranthine Cities of Irian and Mabar, meditate with the githzerai monks of Kythri, and much more.

The adventure won't be easy! Mighty friends and foes await—from legendary archfey and proud sahuagin to nightmarish quori and alien daelkyr. Eberron is a world in need of heroes, but take heart: between these pages lie a host of character options for would-be heroes to enjoy. You'll discover new archetypes for the artificer, cleric, druid, monk, and bard. Play unique Eberron races and subraces including gnolls, Dhakaani goblinoids, aasimar of diverse faiths, and ruinbound dwarves. Uncover a wealth of magic items from around the world, wield symbionts that bond with your very flesh, channel your dragonmark with focus items—and perhaps even manifest a Siberys dragonmark of immense power.

I was excited when I saw this on DnD Beyond's YouTube channel but it's not available there, will it become available there anytime soon, or ever?

Wow, what an excellent product. I'm pretty picky when it comes to buying "non-official" products; however, this really goes well with the 5E campaign guide. A must have in my opinion. Great layout, great art and so much Eberron goodness.

One of the things I love about Keith is how he presents a framework - not a straitjacket. I'm an OG DM, I've been doing it since the seventies. One of the many examples of Gary Gygax's genius was that he understood that the DM reading his material was his equal. People who criticize the early modules he created are missing that very point. Those classic modules (e.g., Borderlands, Giants, Tomb of Horrors, etc.) are skeletal frameworks because YOU'RE supposed to fill in the blanks. Keith has this gift with Eberron as well. There is a lot of great hooks to get the juices flowing and the framework is amazing. This book is obviously way more detailed than a module, but I hope the comparison makes sense. Read the preface and you'll see Keith give examples of...See more

Hello there. Given integration with DnD Beyond is either not going to happen, or at an unknown date in the future, does anyone who has read the book know if it will be possible to homebrew everything onto the platform ourselves? More specifically, are there mechanics that are too complex to work within Beyond's exiting homebrew framework? I'm probably going to buy the book either way, but if I can't homebrew it in, my players can't use it.

I've currently already implemented all of the races, feats, and spells presented here. Some of it is simply creative work-around, like creating 8 copies of the Quori Bond feat (not too much work) for each quori type-ability score combination, or making entirely new races for the Dhakaani Goblinoids.

As for the subclasses, I'm still working on that. I've finished implementing the Forge Adept and Dirge Singer, but not everything is perfect. For example, for the Forge Adept, I can't figure out a way to choose a single weapon to be your ghaal’shaarat, like you can with say a Warlock's pact weapon. You're going to have to edit a weapon yourself for that. With the Dirge Singer, I can't change the Bardic Inspiration die, but I can add a new action which I will use instead. With the Maverick, I still don't know how I'm gonna work all that out but I'm sure I'll find a way. The Cleric should be easy enough, as should the Monk. No clue about the Circle of the Forged though.

The backgrounds are...See more

Thanks for your message. We cannot confirm the exact shipping details of DMs Guild.

From past orders, continental US and Canada seem to take 2 weeks to print, then 3 to 5 days after that to ship. For UK orders, 2 to 4 days to print and then a few days for shipping. Shipping can vary greatly depending on your location.

I live in the EU, and to my surprise (even during the pandemic), the shipping length wasn't bad for a past POD book I ordered. I can't remember exactly how long it took, but it took somewhere around 2 weeks maybe for it to arrive. I also don't know if it depends on the book, as this is about twice the size. If I had to guess, it might take a few days longer than a softcover <100 page book.

I'm looking to play a living weapon monk soon. Does anyone what the significance of the forged heart section where it says your unarmed strikes count as adamantine weapons is? I'm trying to figure out if this has any mechanical implications. The only thing I can think of is the variant rules for adamantine weapons from XGE.

Hi! Certain creatures, such as golems, have resistance or immunity to damage from nonmagical attacks that aren't adamantine (same as silver to lycanthropes).
Customer avatar
Joe M August 04, 2020 7:00 pm UTC
Additionally, since it specifies they count as Adamantine weapons in general rather than saying something like "for the purpose of overcoming Resistance and Immunity to nonadamant weapons" or the like they'd also have the "extra effective at breaking objects" bit where any hit against an object is treated as a crit

Unfortunately, DMsGuild doesn't give writers the ability to update their print copies without taking the *entire* product off sale and offline during the approval process (which can take 1-2 months including shipping). So I expect the print copy won't be able to be updated - but the errata document will definitely be kept up to date :)

Jayme A August 04, 2020 7:18 pm UTC
Wow, so *that's* why books disappear from POD, only to reappear months later.

Still, I hope the physical book is updated after all the errata is in and sales begin to die down. I own a few physical books that received updates, like David Schirduan's Bone Marshes. So it's not impossible, just unlikely. Fingers crossed!

Circle of the Forged's capstone is somewhat ambiguous. While Shaped you're immune to several conditions. In addition, you're immune to Poison damage. Is that intended as only while Shaped you're immune to the damage, or as you're immune to Poison damage whether you're in your Humanoid(/Fey I guess if someone pulls in Ravnica/Theros Races to Eberron or uses the subclass in a game with those in a different setting?) or Beast form, but you're only immune to the conditions while you are?
Customer avatar
Joe M August 03, 2020 5:47 pm UTC
Additionally, if you're a Warforged of the Circle does the +1 AC of Integrated Protection stack with the +2 of Skin of Steel? It might be debated whether a fleshy creature is "physically capable" of having the feature, but I'd think with them being explicitly Warforged adjacent there's no question on if they'd be considered physically capable

good questions! regarding #1: the immunity is only intended to be in Wild Shape. That'll be clarified in an upcoming errata.

On #2, that'd be up to your DM - it's certainly debatable either way ;)

Oh my... USD 59,95 is a price that is very hard for a Brazilian to afford. I even managed to skip the absurd price of shipping it directly, asking a favor to a friend in Canada. But, just out of curiosity: USD 59,95 + USD 11,36 shipping would cost BRL 372,13 - roughly 1/3 of the Brazilian minimum wage.

Guess I will have to wait something happen to check this out. Eberron is my special collection of books, I have all of the WotC's here with me physically. This would be the first DM's Guild physical copy. =/

Not sure if it would be considered a typo but on page 27 when describing a healer magewright the book says " They know the cantrips spare the dying and detect poison and disease, and can perform lesser restoration as a ritual...", detect poison and disease is a first level ritual spell but the text is implying if not straight up saying it's a cantrip. Doesn't change a lot but i noticed it, love the book so far and despite being a relative newcomer to Eberron I love the setting it's definitely my favorite premade setting I've seen.

This book is everything I could want and more ina a lore book. This explores concepts so rarely talked about in any Eberron sourcebook and the ideas this have given me allow me to run Eberron campaigns until the cows come home. The PDF is incredibly well made, the layout superb, and I just don't think words can do this book justice. If you are an Eberron fan, pick up this book.

I cannot think of anything else to say about this book other than it brings joy. It is wonderful to see new material on Eberron from the mouth of Siberys (Keith Baker) himself.

The expansion to existing lore, fleshing out of magical items, details on where an artificer can study in Khorvaire (So much love for the artificer in this book), a frickin' GOBLINOID PHRASE DICTIONARY, details about the unique planes of Eberron...basically everything in this book made me happy.

This is a must have book for anyone playing in an Eberron Campaign, regardless of the version of DnD you have. Since it's not an official WotC publication, it isn't AL legal, but it's a must have for any other campaign set in Eberron or inspired by the setting.

Thank you Keith, this has been well worth the wait.

Hello there, absolutely loving the book as someone who’s read every single published Eberron book this one is easily one of my favorites, I don’t know if this is the appropriate place to mention this, but on page 1 about halfway down the second column the word more is repeated twice

"While this tale is known to all, some traditions give it more more weight than others. In the Five Nations, most consider it a simple metaphor for sky, earth, and the monsters that lurk below."

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.
