WotC August Preview

WotC's August Preview article has some details on the third installation of the core critters of D&D:

"One other interesting innovation you'll find scattered throughout the book is the inclusion of a brief description of where certain monsters are likely to be encountered in the Forgotten Realms and/or Eberron (you'll see an example or two in the excerpts I'm putting in this thing)."

These excerpts include:

Arrow Demons in Eberron
Arrow demons are native to the plane of Shavarath, where they wage war against the devils indigenous to that plane. Desperate Cyran and Karnnathi commanders used summoned arrow demons to bolster their armies in the dying days of the Last War.

War Trolls in Eberron
War trolls commonly reinforce Darguul and Droaamite infantry units. War troll mercenaries also saw battle during the Last War, fighting alongside the armies of Breland and Cyre against the armies of Thrane and Karrn'ath, respectively.

The preview article also provides a few more details on the Sharn sourcebook. Gen Con attendees, be on the lookout for a sample Eberron soundtrack CD! To everyone else, they may put up a download or two to sample in the near future.

Also included is the back cover copy:

Discover a City Filled with Endless Adventure

Hop aboard a skycoach and hurl yourself into adventure amid the soaring towers of Khorvaire's most spectacular city. Plunge into perilous aerial battles miles above the earth. Embark on deadly expeditions through the bowels of the city. Arrange clandestine meetings in shadowy taverns and undertake daring quests to faraway lands. For those bold enough to seek it, the City of Towers promises limitless excitement, danger, fame, and fortune.

Inside this book, you'll find all the details you'll need to explore the awe-inspiring city of Sharn -- a cornerstone of the Eberron campaign setting:

  • Descriptions of over 100 city districts
  • More than a dozen new guilds and organizations to help or hinder characters, including the Deathsgate Guild, the Circle of Song, and the Boromar Clan
  • More than three dozen fully developed NPCs ranging from specific individuals to generic citizens
  • New feats, spells, prestige classes, magic items, and monsters
  • Detailed maps of Sharn and various locations around the city
