A great tool to include some secrets into your game! You will definitely want to look to make sure that the secrets you let your players choose from match up with your campaign-- but there are a ton of ideas to take away from these to draw your characters into your campaign. One of the nice additions was the sheet of blanks at the back which allow you and your players to write your own. Well worth the purchase!

Fantastic supplement. Eberron, being a game of pulp noir fiction, simply demands player characters to have too kinds of shady secrets, and this supplement is a great tool for me to help my players come up with great secrets! I highly recommend this product for anyone planning on running or playing in an Eberron campaign.

Character secrets were introduced as a fully-fledged character concept for 5th Edition in Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden, but Eberron Confidential goes even further than that. This is a supplement providing a massive list of over fifty character secrets designed to be taken by players at character creation to enhance their connection to the world, while at the same time serving as character hooks for the DM to work with and providing player characters with small mechanical benefits. While most secrets are conceived of as things to be taken at character creation, as a DM I'm eager to try and implement them into a long-running campaign set in Eberron. Some are easier than others to introduce during an ongong campaign (hello, Creepy Doll!), but I think part of the fun as a DM is trying one's best to do so with any character secret a player wants, regardless of which secret and what stage of gameplay.

It would have been very easy for Eberron Confidential to simply provide a list of player-facing character secrets and leave it at that, but the supplement goes even further. Each secret gets specific tips and suggestions for the DM to integrate them into their campaign, and these are as fun as the secret itself! In addition, the rumors and random secret-generation tables for NPCs are so good that I want to add a secret to every major NPC I have now! They're just that compelling.

The secrets in Eberron Confidential range from the funny to the creepy to the absolutely world-shaking and epic, and they will definitely become a standard part of character creation for my games set in Eberron from now on. I rarely run other settings, but many of the secrets are setting agnostic, and others can be used in other settings with minimal changes. Quite a few are inextricably linked to Eberron as a setting, however, such as the Secrets of Sharn section or those secrets with an Eberron-specific race as a prerequisite. These would be difficult to work in other settings, but to me as an Eberron lover, that is a function and not flaw of the supplement. An absolute must-have for fans of Eberron!

This is wonderful compilation of mechanically beneficial background secrets and story starters. I will definitely be using this for all future campaigns, and makes me want to start a new one ASAP! There is definitely something for everyone here, as not all of the secrets are Eberron specific. I think this is a great way to make the player characters stand out even more amongst others, and it gives players permission to play larger than life characters with deep and interesting backstories. The art and editing are fantastic, and in total really fits well into the Eberron aesthetic.

My only complaint is that there are a lot of very Eberron specific secrets that need a bit of finagling to make fit into other settings so YMMV. The good news is that they provide a blank template to make your own. AND they go well into depth about every secret which provides good clues on how to make it work in a campaign outside of Eberron as well.

Definitely worthwhile to any DM that wants to make character creation a little more fun and play with story-rich backstory.
