5E Keith Baker: Exploring Eberron

Eberron creator Keith Baker has been busy recently! He has unveiled the cover to his new book, to be released in December March soon (TM) on DMs Guild in PDF and Print on Demand hardcover. It will dive into parts of Eberron that have received little attention in prior books, including the undersea civilizations and the planes.

I'll share the book status update directly:

I don’t want to give a release date for Exploring Eberron until I’m sure of it; I am still wrapping up the final pieces now. But we’re getting very close, and I can’t wait to share it with the world!

Publication deadline for #PlayItForward is tomorrow unfortunately (I say while scrambling to finish my project by tomorrow)

So, where is Exploring Eberron? The process for each chapter is: text, questions and feedback, response, editing, layout, review. The majority of art assets are already completed, additional art and resources might be required in the layout phase. As of the writing of this article, the raw text of the book is nearly done and down to the last 20 pages or so. Post production takes a while and we will not skip anything that may reduce the quality or polish on the book. After review is signed off, we will send the final documents to DMs Guild for approval. A hardcover is ordered and review begins again, this time looking for physical discrepancies. Once all that is done, we can launch. We cannot accurately give a timeline for everything you see above, which can take a month or two, but we are getting closer to a predictable estimate. I promised to be as transparent as possible when I can.

Exploring Eberron is over 240 pages in length, has over 50 pieces of custom and exclusive art, and has consumed over a year of our lives. It has cost blood, sweat, and tears–as well as conventional time and money–but working on the book has brought me great pride and amusement. We know you are waiting (im)patiently for it and our goal to exceed your expectations. So stick with us a little longer, you’re in for quite a book…

The raw text of Exploring Eberron is complete, but I’m not going to predict a release date until layout is complete. The final text is still going through editing, and with a book of this size layout and review will take time. So we haven’t crossed the ocean yet, but we can see land on the horizon!

Big preview on Cyre for Exploring Eberron is up on Sageadvice.
I don't get it. Does it not load in firefox? I disabled any content blockers to try to be able to see what it was…

EDIT: nevermind, Firefox was still "protecting" me from Facebook. Looks cool!

Wouldn't it be better to link the direct sources on Keith Baker's FB page than propping up Sageadvice's second-hand coverage of it (don't get me wrong; I LOVE SA).

I found it while on Sageadvice, not Facebook.

More to the point, I’m not on Facebook. Never have been. Never will be.

Man, that's a really good preview. That explains some of the issues I had understanding Galifar and its succession practices; it was inherently unstable having Cyre as the center of the succession, but the development of Cyre was, at heart, a utopian project. It wasn't pragmatic, but since every monarch was already Cyran at heart, it held up for a long, long time.

Looks like there will be a few backgrounds? Also the producer & editor had mentioned there were some chapter name & content reshuffles over the past few months so this confirms Chapter 6 is Character Options (I think character content was divvied up between chapters in the outline)
