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 July 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.

Keith sent Sly Flourish a PDF copy of the book, which Sly flipped through

For the record the redacted mystery section that starts on 147 was a late add to the book - POD wants submissions in multiples of 4, and they were 2 pages short, so Keith whipped up something to fill two pages after the rest of the book was done.

It's short and ends in "r', I'm guessing it's Khyber. Which isn't exactly a plane, but also isn't exactly part of Eberron's normal geography.
That makes sense. Khyber is technically treated as a separate plane, even though it's one you can basically get to by walking.

For the record Baator also fits, same letter count & ending with r, plus it was part of the (heavily disliked) 4e cosmology rework - not to mention it fits alphabetically there.

Keith's been busy with some family stuff and there hasn't been any more ExE news/previews, but he did did publish a very interesting iFAQ about Lycanthropy today

Final Form
Has Baator been mentioned as part of the Eberron cosmology in any of the previous Eberron books? That was my initial take, but I'd be much more excited if they expanded upon Khyber as a sort of "extraplanar" space.

Also interesting that we don't know anything about Chapter 3 yet. Also they withheld the title of Chapter 5, despite presumably just being some version of "Player Options".

Baator was a much maligned piece of the 4e cosmology that Keith recently commented his dislike for

It was certainly an attempt to polish a turd, but I do think it has some interesting story potential. But I never USED it.
From the discord, we know the chapters are
  1. Discover
  2. Races
  3. Faiths
  4. Uncharted Domains
  5. Planes
  6. Character Options
  7. Treasures
  8. Friends and Foes
You can see almost all of this in the composite TOC preview I posted above.

Lots of Riedra/Sarlona content this week it looks like - this today, then I'm guessing Wednesday and Friday for the two part mega-article on Riedra/Sarlona in 5e.

We decided from the start that humans weren’t native to Khorvaire; that while they are the dominant species on Khorvaire, they are colonizers and on a fundamental level they are on the wrong side of history.

Man, that’s a great article. I love how Keith normalizes and supports reskinning for different character concepts.
