Converting Frostburn prestige classes to Eberron

The Eberron Journal's Conversions section gets a long overdue update this weekend with the addition of a conversion article for Frostburn. This article, written by forum member LewisLynn, provides some suggestions for adapting the book's cold-themed prestige classes to Eberron. Stay tuned for its counterpart later this week, as LewisLynn tackles Sandstorm.

Player's Guide to Eberron Announced

Amazon has posted a product page for the Player's Guide to Eberron, a product apparently releasing in January 2006. The page lists James Wyatt, Keith Baker, Luke Johnson and Steven Brown as the authors.

While the title and date could certainly change, this at least confirms that more Eberron releases are on the horizon!

Official site launches Eberron Expanded

Yesterday, the official site unveiled the first in a series of Eberron Expanded articles. Like the Eberron Journal's own Conversions, they examine general D&D releases through an Eberron-oriented lens. Unlike fan-made conversion articles, these articles are written by Eberron creator Keith Baker! Here's what he had to say about the series:

I am writing a new bimonthly feature for the Wizards of the Coast website, to fill in the blanks between Dragonshards. It's called Eberron Expanded, and it discusses ways to adapt WotC's non-core books to Eberron. These are just suggestions, but this is your chance to see what I'm doing with these books in MY campaign. Look for the first article on July 4th, as I delve into Lords of Madness.

Dragonshard Community Update

Greetings, Dungeoncrawlers!

We've got lots of new news for you this week. As many of you know we have recently clarified our position on our NDA policy regarding the open beta test. But just to re-cap, only the testers in the closed beta are subject tot the Atari NDA. So those of you who have been playing in the open beta we'd love to hear your thoughts and comments. In other news as a preview to their upcoming Dragonshard chat on the 15th of July our friends over at DND Warcry just posted an interview with Jasen Torres from Liquid Entertainment so make sure you check that out http://dnd.warcry.com/#46936.

Information on the chat is as follows:
July 15, 2005 8:30pm EST

Lastly, our friends at Wizards of the Coast will be providing us a few copies of the upcoming Eberron Five Nations Sourcebook (signed by Liquid and Eberon creator Keith Baker) as prize support. We hope to see everyone there so mark your calenders. And now Liquid answers your questions for the week.


The DM: What RPG elements are included in Dragonshard?

Liquid: There are lots of RPG elements that would commonly be found in D&D RPG style games - heavy storylines, tons of quests (including branching quests), uncovering lore about the world, the ability to choose what side of a faction you want to help or hurt, and leveling up your units to make them better by earning experience.

THE DM: Are Heroic characters built in single player mode able to be bought into multiplayer?

Liquid: We are going to try. I can't say that we will, as it depends on time and the multiplayer platform support, but I'd love to have that.
