The Eberron Journal returns

The Eberron Journal is back! The cause of its disappearance -- and subsequent return -- is a complete mystery. Thanks to all the Eberron fans who wrote in with web space advice and offers.

We lost some content that was about to go live, but by this weekend, expect to see some new updates. Until then, if you haven't already, check out the Korranberg Chronicle, the Eberron Bestiary, Maps of Eberron, Siberys.com, and Morgrave University.

Dungeon signs Keith Baker for Adventure Path articles

Dungeon magazine's editor Erik Mona has posted on an EN World thread that Keith Baker will be writing 1,000-word "Eberron Appendices" to the next Adventure Path adventures.

Miniatures Handbook Conversion at the Eberron Journal

The Eberron Journal's popular Conversions section has been updated with an article by first-time contributor Orion Cooper. This conversion covers Miniatures Handbook Classes, including the healer, marshal, warmage, and several prestige classes. (The favored soul, originally introduced in the Miniatures Handbook, is covered in our Complete Divine conversion.)

Character PDFs from Shards of Eberron

The D&D Open: Shards of Eberron event at Gen Con Indy 2004 is now long past, but the fast-play characters created for the event are still useful if you're looking for 6th-level PCs or NPCs.

Tanix, warforged fighter
Larric Zane, shifter barbarian and ranger
Beld the Watchful, human monk
Reginald Pipwhistle, halfling sorcerer
Corlin Faith-Hammer, dwarf favored soul
Sarlis Waylund, elf rogue

Shards of Eberron sent characters on a hunt to retrieve an Eberron dragonshard for Tophran Damilek, one of Sharn’s wealthiest citizens. The next major Eberron RPGA event is the launch of the Mark of Heroes campaign at Gen Con So Cal.

Marked for Death news from author Matt Forbeck

Matt Forbeck has posted an update on the progress of his Eberron novel, Marked for Death, Book One of the Lost Mark Trilogy:

I'm getting back into the freelance swing of things again. I polished off the final draft of Marked for Death, the first in my Eberron trilogy, due out in March of 2005. Then I realized I'd made a big goof, and I had to fix that. ("That one-handed character is hanging from the edge of an airship while holding up a paladin with his other hand. I don't think that's possible. How about he just loses a finger?") It's all done now, and hopefully sailing through the editorial process.

I also had to come up with a map for the book. This was a snap, since the book takes place almost entirely in the Mournland, this mysteriously mist-shrouded, half-dead land in the center of the main continent of Khorvaire.

Sean K Reynolds Adds Eberron Material

Sean K Reynolds had added an Eberron section to his website. The latest entry includes an Eberron article series he proposed to WotC ("Encounter Site"). The article submitted is "The Six Widows Inn", an eccentric rest stop. After their husbands died in the Last War, a group of widows convert a charred Boldrei temple into an Inn. What they don't know is the fire was started by an elemental bound to a Khyber Dragonshard located below the church, and everyone from the Cult of the Dragon below to House Lyrandar has an interest in it.

RPGA's Eberron Mark of Heroes at Gen Con So Cal

There is some info on the Gen Con So Cal FAQ regarding the upcoming Eberron RPGA campaign. As previously reported, "Mark of Heroes" will officially replace the Forgotten Realms "Legacy of the Green Regeant" campaign during Winter Fantasy 2005. The FAQ for Gen Con So Cal gives a brief description of the character generation rules:

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS CAMPAIGNS: MARK OF HEROES-This D&D campaign is set in EBERRON. It uses the standard point buy method (25 points) to generate stats. Characters start at 1st-level with maximum gold for their level (extrapolate from information on page 111 of the D&D Player's Handbook). The campaign offers fastplay characters for players who lack the time or inclination to create their own characters. You can download the fastplay characters from the RPGA website.

The last statement appears to be false; the fastplay characters are not yet available on the RPGA site.

The module that will be available at Gen Con So Cal is titled "EMH-1 Reflections of the Multiverse". No word yet as to if or when this module will be available through the RPGA.

Eberron does things a bit diffrently, and now with Sean's help we can all learn how to tweek our adventures to the right tune.

Sean K Reynolds has his own website at www.seankreynolds.com that includes Forgotten Realms and Greyhawk fan content, and hopefully some Eberron content in the future!

Two new articles at the Eberron Journal

The Eberron Journal has updated with two new articles!

Unconventional Ancestors provides new options for Eberron sorcerers. We know your sorcerer is connected to Siberys, but what monstrous ancestors have you had since then? This article presents themed spell lists for sorcerers with couatl, doppleganger, night hag and rakshasa ancestry.

The Common to Goblin Translator can turn a string of English words into something that sounds like the language of Eberron's goblins. Don't expect to back-translate existing Goblin words using the translator, but it's an easy way to provide flavorful names and passages.
