Eberron Campaign Guide: A 4th Edition D&D Supplement
Eberrpn deftly weaves the 4E rule set into the updated campaign setting, avoiding the catastrophic upheavals visited upon the Forgotten Realms and staying true to the elements that made Eberron such a compelling setting in its first iteration. That said, the appeal of Eberron is how different it is from the norm, and the introduction lays out those key differences: Keeping with the original Eberron sourcebook, this one opens four years after The Last War, a terrible year-long war of ebberron fought by the five nations who once comprised the kingdom of Galifar.
It ended not camppaign any one side achieved victory, but because a magical cataclysm destroyed one of the combatants, transforming the nation of Cyre into the devastated Mournland. A cold war now exists between the surviving nations as each struggles to recover from The Last War while simultaneously preparing for the next one. When these manifestations appear on individuals, they are known as Dragonmarks, and confer certain magical enhancements.
A good example is the Mark of Scribing, which grants additional languages, a bonus to Diplomacy checks, and access to Mark-specific rituals. Instead, it focuses on detailing the twelve Dragonmarked houses that have arisen around each mark.
It is the Dragonmarked houses that provide the arcane services that make magic such an everyday occurrence in Eberron, but said magic is never overwhelming. As the campaign progresses they, and not the NPCs, will be the heroes everyone is talking about. Eberron is a 4d world to cover in a single book, but the Campaign Guide pulls it off.

Each write-up begins with a brief history followed up by a series of skill-check based entries detailing its politics, natural environment and notable arcane influences.
The end result is a book so chockfull of good information ebwrron game masters can open to any page and find a half-dozen adventure ideas. The radical transformation of the world — jumping the timeline forward years, slaying the goddess of magic, physically merging two worlds — was disheartening to long-time players. Not so with Eberron. eberon

Here the changes are more subtle, and frankly, more respectful of the source material. The myriad races of Fourth Edition are spliced into the setting in ways that make sense: The single best addition is the arrival of the Eladrin.
These planer counterparts to the elves lived in seven ancient cities known as feyspires. Suddenly the mystical shrouds protecting the cities were shredded, trapping the feyspires — and their inhabitants — in Eberron.
Eberron Campaign Guide [Review]
That guide contains the new Artificer class, paragon paths, races, Dragonmarked guidw, magic items, alchemical creations and Eberron-specific rituals. The existing one-page index and new monster reference are adequate, but adding pages to the index would have served GMs far better then a one-shot adventure they may never run. The poster map of Khorvaire included with the book is great, but I wish the flipside had featured a world map instead of an encounter map of a tower.
These are ultimately minor flaws. More importantly, it demonstrates how the Fourth Edition rule set can be made to fit a given setting, rather than forcing the setting camaign conform to it. You must be logged in to post a comment. Send post to email address, comma separated for multiple emails.
