House Cannith perfected modern, sentient warforged in 965 YK. The Treaty of Thronehold, which ended the Last War and required House Cannith to destroy the Creation Forges, was in 996 YK. All (legal) warforged were produced during this 31-year period. The combatants during this timeframe were: The Five Nations: Aundair Breland Darguun was one of the most ...

It's a digitally published book by Wizards of the Coast You can read the description of this playtest material on D&D Beyond and via DMsGuild. It is described as: Eberron was born in 2002 when Wizards of the Coast launched a worldwide search for a new campaign setting. Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron brings the eponymous campaign setting to the fifth ...

Eberron's connection to wildspace was never defined in canon. Spelljammer ended with AD&D 2e, while Eberron made its debut in D&D 3.5, with the result being that the two settings have little overlap. Eberron couldn't have been mentioned in an AD&D Spelljammer book, and I don't recall any mention of spelljamming in any Eberron book. The closest ...

Yes +3 to Charisma is a legitimate choice and also slightly better than adding the +1 to a different stat most of the time. It's also not a typo but intentional, as evidenced by Crawford agreeing that's what the rules say: Q: Is it intentional that Changelings can put their floating +1 in charisma giving them a +3 to charisma ASI? — ProfNesbitt, Nov 21 ...

Warforged don’t need to eat or drink As per the book Eberron: Rising From the Last War, the official fifth edition source for Eberron, Warforged have the Constructed Resilience trait, which confers several benefits including: • You don’t need to eat, drink, or breathe. The description makes no mention of them requiring any other form of sustenance, ...

D&D 3.5e In the original, D&D 3.5e Eberron Campaign Setting book, the living spell template is given this description: “Living spell” is an unusual template, in that it is applied to an arcane or divine spell effect (or in some cases, a group of spell effects) and not to a creature. The characteristics of a living spell are determined by the nature ...

Yes, there are more than sixty-seven kalashtar. There are also more than sixty-six, since the kalashtar bound to their leader, Taratai, sacrificed themselves to produce the shroud resonators that protect Adar (Secrets of Sarlona, pg. 24). Sixty-seven rebel quori survived the exodus from Dal Quor, and every kalashtar has a bond to one of these spirits. The ...

Unlike half-elves, half-orcs don’t generally live apart from their parent races so much, so it would be somewhat surprising for them to focus so strongly on the distinction. Most half-orcs are from the Shadow Marches, which is a pretty well-mixed population of human, orc, and half-orc—and considering the mixing, it’s quite likely that even those who are ...

No one can join two different Dragonmarked Houses. All Dragonmarked Houses have signed a treaty in which they pledged their neutrality among the nations, and their independence from one another. By law, the Dragonmarked Houses must maintain their separation from one another, and that does not apply only to the dragonmarked themselves—it applies to the ...

TLDR: In your specific case, Lizardfolk are from Volo's Guide To Monsters, a book that is not allowed in DDAL Eberron play, and it did not start the Eberron Campaign at level 1. It is not a legal character for Oracle of War Eberron DDAL play. They are entirely separate campaigns. DDAL's Forgotten Realms campaign and DDAL's Eberron campaign have different ...

They can This seems to be a revision problem in editing. It was at some point decided that humans of House Tharashk can't develop the mark, but it wasn't properly edited out everywhere. This, at least, seems to be the explanation D&D Beyond is going for on why humans in their editor can't take the mark. Quoting Stormknight on the D&D Beyond forums: ...

XP is awarded for completing encounters, not just fights As a DM in 5E, you have massive freedom to craft your campaign and reward players as you see fit. Even when working from a source book such as Eberron, you can adjust encounters as you see fit to add to the story or present additional challenge. XP was never designed as only a combat reward, but ...

Yes. Changelings can impersonate warforged. The Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron (p.61) and Eberron: Rising from the Last War (p.18) both describe the change appearance racial feature: You decide what you look like, including your height, weight, facial features, the sound of your voice, coloration, hair length, sex, and any other distinguishing ...

Yes The Infuse Item feature states: you gain the ability to imbue mundane items with certain magical infusions. The magic items you create with this feature are effectively prototypes of permanent items. Additionally, the specific Radiant Weapon infusion says: This magic weapon grants a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with it. (all emphases are ...

Tread carefully with dimensional travel. The Eberron setting makes a lot of assumptions that are challenged in other settings. For instance, the provability of gods' existence would rattle any warmblooded citizen of the Five Nations. Consider nonchalantly imposing the Eberron items you want as a part of the setting you want to use them in. If the story ...

In this case, temporary means "until you choose to change it according to the stated rules", and you get one and only one at a time. When you acquire Magecraft (at character generation), you make one item with one cantrip in it. You can replace the item (and the contained cantrip) at the end of a long rest, as it says. It doesn't give any rules for creating ...

Wrogar ir'Wynarn Assuming the line of succession was properly followed. (Not the original Wrogar who was part of kicking off The Last War...Aurala has a son named after the original) We have no details on this in 5E sources, so we have to look further back. This takes us to Dungeon Magazine #170 where we get the following blurb Prince Consort Sasik d'...

Multiple reactions is probably unbalanced. Dungeon Master's Guide, p.263, recommends against allowing multiple reactions per round: Beware of adding anything to your game that allows a character to concentrate on more than one effect at a time, use more than one reaction or bonus action per round, or attune to more than three magic items at a time. Rules ...

All of the Five Nations used them to some degree. According to the 3.5 supplement Eberron: The Forge of War, which was a book centered around playing a campaign set during the Last War, the Warforged were first fielded by Breland and Cyre, with Aundair and Thrane taking them up later and Karrnath preferring to use undead and only fielding a few squads. To ...

The Prince of Frost One option is the Prince of Frost, detailed in Dragon Magazine 374 and discussed here on Eberron author Keith Baker's blog. As I understand it the Dragon article was written to fit in any D&D setting, but it was written by Keith Baker with the specific themes of Eberron and Thelanis in mind. This Fey could be a suitable, if somewhat ...

Yes While this is not established in 5E, old lore often carries through from older editions if it is not superseded by new lore. So, the only book I'm aware of that talks about Changeling reproduction is the 3.5E book Races of Eberron. From there, we get the following... Two changeling parents breed a changeling child. A changeling and a humanoid can mate ...

The only form of address that appears consistently among the Sovereign Host priesthood is high priest The question says that Faiths of Eberron has been thoroughly scoured, but for the benefit of other readers, Faiths on Hierarchy, in part, says Beyond these general distinctions—councilor, general member, or priest with little involvement in the [local ...

It is hard to speak for the developer, but it seems clear from one of the quotes: They can compress and configure these tendrils to form a wide range of simple shapes. I would interpret that this provides any simple arrangement of limbs the Hashalaq might need for a successful disguise self. Strict reading of the spell would prohibit this, but I would ...

Travel from Eberron to Toril You mention "lore that describe semi-permanent gateways between planes" and there is one that would fit almost perfectly to your goal: The World Serpent Inn. Here are the reasons why it would be a good fit: It is accessible by low-level characters. It is just an extraplanar inn with doors that open to pretty much everywhere in ...

They can be found in Eberron: Rising from the Last War With the official release of the Eberron sourcebook – Eberron: Rising from the Last War – living spells were finally converted to fifth edition rules. They can be found in Chapter 6: Friends and Foes. If you don't have the Eberron book, you can also find the rules for living spells on edition 28 of the ...

You can change directly from one form to another You stay in the new form until you use an action to revert to your true form or until you die. "Stay" means "to remain in the same state". This means there is no duration, and unless you revert or die you will remain in the new form. You can still shapechange to another form as an action.

Eberron debuted in D&D 3.5e, and the vast majority of content for Eberron is for that system (4e had two books and three adventures, 5e has just the one book so far; 3.5e had dozens, and they were usually much larger). In particular, the 3.5e Magic of Eberron supplement included a prestige class,1 the renegade mastermaker. Renegade mastermakers sought to ...

You can only acquire Greater Dragonmark in E6 with extreme cheese and a permissive DM. (tl;dr Dusk Giant cheese is the least questionable method.) Greater Dragonmark (ECS, p. 54) requires: Least Dragonmark, Lesser Dragonmark, 12 ranks in any two skills, Member of appropriate dragonmarked race and house The feat requirements are doable (Lesser Dragonmark ...

The 2 in the table is an error, and is removed by errata None of Exceptional Artisan, Extraordinary Artisan, or Legendary Artisan is allowed to be taken more than once, nor do they stack with one another if you somehow get them more than once.

Eberron is, by default, separated from the rest of the DnD multiverse with a magical barrier created by the three godlike dragons who created the world in the first place. In the sourcebook Eberron: Rising from the Last War, it says the following at the beginning of the section discussing adventures in Eberron: As discussed in the introduction to this ...
