My copy of the Eberron Campaign Setting arrived in the mail the other day. Over the months I’ve been working on Marked for Death, the first in my trilogy of Eberron novels, Wizards has sent me several copies of this book in various stages of development. The first was a 12-page brief.
The final book looks great. There’s a lot here to love if you play Dungeons & Dragons, whether you plan to run an Eberron campaign or not. It’s D&D flavored with pulpy goodness, which is right up my alley. I can only hope that many others out there share my tastes for this kind of adventure.
I also got a copy of Shadows of the Last War, the first Eberron adventure. Keith Baker, the brain behind Eberron wrote it, along with Death at Whitehearth, a short story included in a separate pamphlet. I haven’t cracked these yet, but I’m looking forward to it.
In the meantime, I wrote two pieces for an upcoming issue of Dragon Magazine. The first is a short story that serves as a prequel to Marked for Death. The second is for the “Novel Approach” column, in which I provide some game-oriented details about Marked for Death, including rules for a smaller airship (the aircutter) and for living fireballs.
