July’s Calendar

New pricing for DDI goes into effect on July 2nd, so if you want another year at a reduced cost get it in before then. July looks to be a tiny, tiny month, since the lack of Friday content means that there is a wide gulf between now and the […]

A Balancing Act

Excerpts: Karrnath & Travel in Eberron

Its pretty small, but today’s Eberron Campaign Guide excerpt gives us a detailed map of Karnnath, some very brief information on traveling (with no mention of price points), and a sample magebred animal, the magebred destrier. Its basically a horse with a second mount encounter power that grants it temp […]
