I’m back today with more on the wonderful Exploring Eberron book by Keith Baker and company. Previously we’ve covered the parts of this book dealing with the setting’s ancient history as well as the parts focused on more modern stuff.

Mostly, the limiting factor for these sorts of things is audience feedback and I just didn’t get enough to sustain my massive ego and keep things going.
