Birthright Collector's Guide


Shirokinukatsukami fan
Welcome to the Birthright Collector's Guide!

This is one of a series of Echohawk's D&D Collector's Guides, each of which aims to provide a comprehensive guide to D&D products published for a particular setting or era of the game. This particular guide focuses on the Birthright campaign setting, which was launched in July 1995, but fell victim to TSR's "Time of Troubles" in 1997.

Before TSR imploded, there had been plans to re-launch Birthright with a new hardcover campaign setting book, and additional support products. Those plans were scrapped after Wizards of the Coast acquired TSR, and only three more products saw print before the line was cancelled. In 2002, WotC ran a Birthright anniversary celebration on their web site, and offered several of the unreleased products as free downloads. This included The Legacy of Kings board game, an unreleased novel, and a few game products. Even though it is one of the campaign settings which had the briefest period of official support, Birthright still managed to spawn a series of novels, a comic, a line of miniatures, a computer game and a long list of Spellfire cards.

This was the fifth installment when the Collector's Guides were first published. The original thread for this Collector's Guide is here.
