Eberron Campaign Setting is a hardcover accessory for the 3.5 edition of the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game.

Contents[edit]

The Eberron Campaign Setting book introduces Eberron, and provides the core campaign setting, including campaign-specific rules and details on the fictional continent of Khorvaire. This book is required to use other Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 Eberron products, and includes the introductory adventure "The Forgotten Forge".

Publication history[edit]

The Eberron Campaign Setting book was published in June 2004, and was designed by Keith Baker, Bill Slavicsek, and James Wyatt. The cover illustration is by Wayne Reynolds, with interior illustrations by Dave Allsop, Kalman Andrasofszky, John Avon, Ted Beargeon, Beet, David Bircham, Tomm Coker, Rafa Garres, Frazer Irving, Andrew Jones, Dana Knutson, Ron Lemen, Lee Moyer, Lucio Parrillo, Martina Pilcerova, Steve Prescott, Anne Stokes, Mark Tedin, Franz Vohwinkel, Kev Walker, Sam Wood, and James Zhang.

Keith Baker said that he submitted Eberron "just because it was a fun idea. I really didn't expect anything to come of it, but I enjoyed writing the proposal."[1]

Reception[edit]

The reviewer from Pyramid commented: "If you're one of the thousands who submitted a one-page treatment for Wizards of the Coast's world-setting competition, you may want to go ahead and skip this review. But if you're still here: Eberron, the winning entry in the $100,000 contest to select a new world for Dungeons & Dragons fans to play in, is the winner in more ways than one."[2]
