Hektula is the Scribe of Sul Khatesh, the Keeper of the Library of Ashtakala, and the Chronicler of the Lords of Dust. Her treasured tomes hold arcane secrets still hidden from human and dragon alike. What lies beneath the Barren Sea? What powers does Mordain the Fleshweaver wield within Blackroot? Who are the Grim Lords of the Bloodsail Principality? All these secrets and many more can be found in the Chronicles of Eberron…

  • Chronicles of Eberron is a new 5E sourcebook from Eberron creator Keith Baker and designer Imogen Gingell.
  • This book explores a diverse range of topics, including lore and advice for both players and DMs, along with new monsters, treasures, spells and character options.
  • Chronicles of Eberron will be available on the DMs Guild as a PDF and print-on-demand.


But that's not all! There is a collaboration with Hero Forge and new T-Shirts!

Designed with Eberron in mind.
I’ve liked this publisher’s material for years now. They are really great and get the right feel for eberron in the design

Firearms "exist" in Eberron and the goblins of the Dhakanni would get them if they got mentioned.


then in the Dragonmark: Firearms in Eberron article, there was the Kech Haschach, which were a Goblinoid Dhakanni clan that specialized in Firearms.

Editor's note: as of today, every time I check my bookmarked note on the postdated July 22, 2022 and click on the link: the article keeps on taking me to Keith Baker Presents Chronicles of Eberron page, instead of the Dragonmark: Firearms in Eberron article. Either Keith straight up deleted the article or somehow, that info will be a surprise fine in the new book. I have no idea.

The point remainds though: Firearms are used/made by the Dhakanni.

Was actually looking for that blog post yesterday and realized the same thing... :/

According to Chronicle's ToC, there's a good six page section on "Arms, Armor, and Aesthetics", with four of those pages dedicated to "Mundane Weapons, Magical World", so perhaps it got repurposed there. We'll see soon enough, I suppose.

All this is what Keith would do if he was going to put guns in eberron, that doesn’t mean guns exist in eberron. That picture is one of the bad pictures in rising. I don’t want to say people can’t put guns in Eberron, do whatever you think is fun, but they don’t exist in Eberron as of right now

As a brief aside, I like this psionic class for Eberron. It's got a good mix of subclasses and, while there's no Eberron-specific stuff in it, it's a good fit and those are easy to houserule.

From the editor for the book
...the contents of the book are identical in both (And are the same as what you'd get in the PDF). The difference is that the Premium version is printed on slightly higher quality paper (eg my premium copy isn't getting wavy pages in the humidity as much as standard does), and the print and color quality is better. This is especially noticeable on the darker/more colorful artworks; the standard print quality tends to render them muddily and too dark, whereas the premium quality prints them as they're intended to be viewed. Both books are solid quality and you're not missing out with just the Standard version, it's just going to be more "nice inkjet printer" level quality rather than pro book quality.

One culture Keith didn't suggest as an option for firearms that I've used in my games is the Sulatar Drow; they're already ALL ABOUT fire, and in my Eberron they're working on building up an empire in Xen'drik.

A lot was deleted from keith’s blog, because this book is a deep dive in a lot of topics he has posted on his blog before. DM’s Guilds rules state that for a product to be available on the Guild it cannot be posted elsewhere, so keith kind of had to remove those from his blog I think.
Yeah, I noticed that about a week ago looking for his Astral article.

Fortuitously, it appears as a chapter in the new book as well. So I recovered it from the wayback machine AND I will get his new book.
