A Keith Baker-Produced Eberron D&D Adventure Path is On the Way

February 12, 2019 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Eberron remains one of Dungeons & Dragons’ most popular settings fifteen years after its release. Fan demand for Keith Baker’s setting, which places traditional D&D elements in a pulp-noir fantasy setting, was so strong that it led Wizards of the Coast to make it one of the first non-Forgotten Realms settings brought to Fifth Edition. The Wayfinder’s Guide to Eberron brought the setting into official Fifth Edition publication last summer, and an official Adventurer’s League storyline was created for it.

And now a new adventure path for the setting is on the way. Across Eberron has launched, which intends to create an adventure path for fans, created by fans. That said, it isn’t just fans involved. In addition to editors Wayne Chang, Laura Hirsbrunner, and Anthony Turco, Baker himself is involved as an executive producer in the project. Baker has worked with Chang previously on the excellent “Curtain Call” introductory adventure, as well as its follow-up, “Trust No One” which Turco also co-wrote.

“Across Eberron aims to tell the stories and exploits of heroic characters in Eberron and introduce players, new and experienced, to the wonderful lore and rich history the setting has to offer,” the announcement reads. “Players and Dungeon Masters are encouraged to use the Shared Campaign rules (Xanathar’s Guide to Everything) to make an open and inclusive gaming experience for anyone to join, or to use the adventures as a kick-off to further games or campaigns!”

The first season of the path will be titled “Convergence Manifesto” and “plays out over thirteen parts as the characters–all members of the Clifftop Adventurers Guild–crisscross the continent of Khorvaire to retrieve items and magic associated with the thirteen planes of Eberron and their associated manifest zones. What purpose these items serve is a mystery to be revealed…”

The path will launch on DMs Guild this month.
