Wizards Of The Coast are going to be delving into the world of Eberron soon with the release of their supplement, Rising From The Last War which will be available in November.

Eberron Rising From The Last War - Wizards Of The Coast

This one-stop book will give both players and Dungeon Masters what they need to dive in and explore the world of Eberron which blends together magic and science and introduces new races, new feuds, new worlds and swashbuckling skyship adventure to your Dungeons & Dragons games.

Inside the book, you'll find...

  • Dive straight into your pulp adventures with easy-to-use locations, complete with maps of floating castles, skyscrapers, and more.
  • Explore Sharn, a city of skyscrapers, airships, and noirish intrigue and a crossroads for the world’s war-ravaged peoples.
  • Include a campaign for characters venturing into the Mournland, a mist-cloaked, corpse-littered land twisted by magic.
  • Meld magic and invention to craft objects of wonder as an artificer—the first official class to be released for fifth edition D&D since the Player’s Handbook.
  • Flesh out your characters with a new D&D game element called a group patron—a background for your whole party.
  • Explore 16 new race/subrace options including dragonmarks, which magically transform certain members of the races in the Player’s Handbook.
  • Confront horrific monsters born from the world’s devastating wars.

Of course, the big thing for me is that they are going to be reintroducing the mighty Warforged into the mix for the game. I really like the idea of Warforged, soldiers from an old war who now have to try and find a place in a new society. It makes for fascinating roleplaying moments. Also, the mix between magic and science to create interesting contraptions means that your players can get nice and inventive, especially if they're playing as an Artificer, the new D&D class.

Now, there have been some comments about the cover. Like many I'm not entirely sold on it and whilst I like the big character with her quirky pet taking centre stage the poor Warforged seems like he has been pasted onto the image! Still, the alternative cover looks very cool!

Eberron Rising From The Last War Alt Cover - Wizards Of The Coast

This new book should be a lot of fun for those who want to explore a different world and delve into an alternative take on Fantasy and magic. Eberron was a world that I never properly explored back in Third Edition but I'd love to give it a go in this new era of Dungeons & Dragons.

Will you be checking this out?
