More from the Bestiary

The Eberron Bestiary has updated its archive with two more monsters. The first is the Phiarlan Echo, a remnant of the lost work of the Houses of Shadow. As both undead and a record of prized ancient tradition, the existance of Phiarlan Echoes is a taboo topic among the Deathguard of Aerenal.
The second is the 'Reach Wrat, a relative of the dire rat that has adapted to an aquatic life in the maze-like sewers of Stormreach. These critters are a great way to add a spin to the otherwise cliche 'clean out the sewer rats' mini-adventure.

DDO Preorder Update

Preorder Access Extended Through March 5th

We have extended preorder access to Dungeons & Dragons Online™: Stormreach™ (DDO) through March 5th in order to help address the concerns of players who have told us they may not be able to get a copy of the retail box for DDO right away. Players who have created an account using their preorder bonus key will continue to have access to DDO through Sunday, March 5th. We expect most retail stores to have DDO boxes available on or before this time.

Starting on Monday, March 6th, players will need to redeem a retail key at https://billing.turbine.com in order to continue playing. Players who are unable to obtain a retail key before March 6th won’t lose their account information or characters and will be able to play those characters once they enter a retail key.

As a reminder, the opportunity to earn the Head Start Event founders helmet and founder status ends at 8:00am EST on February 28th. So be sure to log in and get your guilds set up!

DDO Updates

The main DDO site has updated and changed. It now features an encyclopedia and map amongst other things.

The Head Start Event has begun. Download instructions can be found here.

DDO Update

In our latest Developer Diary, Games Systems Engineer Andy "Denour" Gillis describes working on two very important aspects of DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE™: Stormreach™: the Voice Chat System and dice.

"Hello there, my name is Andy Gillis, though you may know me better as "Denour". I am a Game Systems Engineer (that’s fancy talk for well caffeinated coder) here at Turbine. I was asked to write a dev diary about something interesting - yikes! So bear with me and I’ll try my best!"

More Etherclaws at the Bestiary

The Eberron Bestiary has uploaded two more of the extraplanar abominations known as etherclaws to its archives.
The first is the Etherclaw Warrior. This template transforms humanoids and similar creatures into the minions of the colony. As the soldiers of the etherclaws, these creatures are fast, strong and extremely deadly.
Second is the Etherclaw Clairvoyant. The clairvoyants are the leaders of the etherclaw colonies, ruling where the queen no longer can. As masters of clairsentience, there is little these ethereal horrors don't know.

Gone Gold

DDO has gone Gold and this means the release is just days ahead (February 28th).

Gamespot also has a new Developer Diary

Those of you who have read Unearthed Arcana may already be familiar with the Vitality and Wound Points System, a variant hit points system which is now freely available online. If you’re running a game in Eberron, you’d be hard pressed to find a hit point system better suited to your game. Read on to find out why.
