Introduces New Class
Posted by Milton Griepp on August 20, 2019 @ 9:23 am CT
The volume will introduce the artificer class, which fuses technology and magic, as the first new D&D class since the Player’s Handbook, four new races, twelve magical dragonmark tattoos, and a new game element called group patrons that provides parties with shared background features. Tools include an overview of the continent of Khorvaire, a gazetteer of the city of Sharn, maps of lightning-powered trains and industrial workshops, and adventure hooks and details on designing adventures set after the Last War.
The release will be supported with The Oracle of War, a new season of twenty episodes for D&D Adventurers League in which players discover an incredible treasure sought by every faction in Khorvaire.
A digital version of Wayfinder’s Guide to Eberron was offered on the Dungeon Master’s Guild last year, and WotC has conducted "hundreds of playtests and player feedback sessions" to develop Eberron: Rising from the Last War, WotC Vice President of the D&D franchise Nathan Stewart said in a statement accompanying the announcement.
WotC is repackaging Tyranny of Dragons for October release (see "Wizard Revives ‘Dungeons & Dragons: Tyranny of Dragons’").
