City of Towers chat transcript now available

Wizards of the Coast has posted a transcript of the February 9 chat with Keith Baker. The chat mostly deals with questions about City of Towers, the first Eberron novel and the starting point for the Dreaming Dark trilogy.

If you haven't read the book yet, you should definitely steer clear of this transcript (and go buy the book), as almost every question involves spoilers. Otherwise, head on over to the Wizards novel site and check it out!

Top ten reasons to buy City of Towers

City of Towers is now available through online retailers, major bookstores, and friendly local gaming stores around the nation. It's a great read for any fantasy fan, but it's especially essential for Eberron players and DMs. Here's why!

10. Facts at your fingertips. The handy appendix introduces new readers to the world of Eberron and the comprehensive glossary helps old fans keep track of the new people and places introduced in the book.

9. A new source for NPCs. Many characters in the book's supporting cast make great additions to your campaign ...and they're shadowy enough to serve as patrons or enemies.

8. See Sharn from the eyes of its citizens. The descriptions of the city's different neighborhoods are a must-have for a Sharn campaign, and the thrilling plot provides a great example of how to create a series of urban adventures.

7. More than superstitions. Learn new secrets about aberrant dragonmarks and House Tarkanan.

6. Details, details, details. Do you think you know what a Lyrandar airship looks like? Can you picture the insane architecture of Hareth's Folly? The novel provides a closer look at the city's greatest wonders.

5. What does it mean to be a Mourner? Experience the plight of Cyran refugees, from the squalor of High Walls to the horrors of Mournland "survivors."

4. Inspired magic. Eberron is a world shaped by magic, and Sharn is more infused with enchatment than any city in Khorvaire. Imaginative scenes show how magic and illusion are woven into art and technology throughout the metropolis.

3. Blood above love. Look behind the closed doors of dragonmarked houses. Gain insight into House politics and learn the greatest punishment that can be inflicted upon a dragonmark heir.

2. Unravel the mystery. The story of Daine, Lei, Jode and Pierce is action-packed and full of intrigue. Every fast-paced chapter ends with a twist to keep you turning pages.

1. Just the beginning. The story doesn't end here. The protagonists have been assembled and they've survived a difficult battle, but their destiny is still unfolding. The Dreaming Dark Trilogy continues this December with The Shattered Land.

The Lords of False Presage, Part 2

The Eberron Journal has updated with the second in a series of articles by Peter "ieattrollsforbreakfast" Gingell and Simon "Polt" Weil detailing the Lords of False Presage, a cabal of ancient spiders who consider the draconic Prophecy an evil to be destroyed. The Lords of False Presage, Part 2 presents the White Spider of Adar. This enormous arachnid's intenions are pure, but its devotion to disrupting the Prophecy could make it an enemy to any adventurers whose actions defend or advance the decrees of fate.

If you haven't read the first Lords of False Presage, check it out for an overview of the Spider Lords and their history.

Dragon 329

According to the cover of Dragon 329 there is an article inviting readers to "Explore Eberron's Dragonshard". This should be an article on Liquid Entertainment's real time PC strategy game. Also, the Novel Approach covers Matt Forbeck's Marked for Death Eberron novel. Hopefully we'll see some crunchy stats for cool Eberron aspects of the book.
