Long ago, in a world far, far away we were promised a book like none before. Then November came. Then November left us. As the months dragged on so did my excitement. Then the world turned upside down and the wait became something personal. As a self proclaimed Eberron junkie it became a game of hurry up and wait and bananas. But then, yesterday, it happened. The long awaited return of the master lore smith of Eberron finally got to show us how he sees his version of Eberron. When so much is wrong in the world of the real, it is nice to finally have Exploring Eberron (ExE) in my hands.
And let me be honest, it was worth the wait and every damn penny I spent on it. I am in awe of the beautiful art, the in depth look at the places in Eberron that have barely looked at, and weapons of the Last War? Like yoowzers! How they were able to get this done in under a year with all that content in mind boogling. It's bananas!
The look at the races like the Shifters, Aasimar, and the Changelings is awesome. The look at the Planes of Eberron...hubba hubba! And that map! Bless the Sovreigns, that map is exquisite. (Which I hear is also on sale on here, which I will order a poster of because it is that amazing!) The art in this book is just next level.
The look behind the curtain of Cyre, a former memeber of the Five Nations that I was very meh about was inspiring. I really can't wait to actually use Cyre refugees more in my game.
And Droaam. ERMIGAWD!!! The Daughters...the goblin glossary...the history.
The Fey...ohhhhh yeah. The magic items. The feats for races... This is it. This is the book all you Eberron fans have been waiting for since Rising. And if I am being honest, this is the book you've been waiting for since 3.5. This book is dense, so fully packed with information and lore that you will be hard pressed to read it in one go.
I would write more, but I have barely scratched the surface of this book. But it's one that will be used in every game I run from here until the Prophecy is unleashed.
No matter the system you run, if you play or run an Eberron game you NEED this book. LIke hands down, NEED it.
Thank you, Keith. Thank you, Wayne. Thank you, Will. And lastly, Thank you, Laura. This book is ####ing amazing and you should be damn proud. -Fletch
9-1-2020 edit/add: So, I just recieved over the weekend my PoD Exploring Eberron hardcover. It is a thicc boy! I am very happy with this purchase. This is only being edited to inform y'all of how nice the actually book is quality wise. I know the creators of ExE have nothing to do with that, but for those that want to know...its nice and I like it a lot.
