    Why Eberron?

    Why now?

    One of the places where I play https://www.serenitygames.com/ The general sentiment Ive heard from most people into 5e & Pathfinder, they are sick of Faerun and some of non-sanctioned outlier worlds. So this makes sense to me

    Speaking of 5e Warforged they could do with getting a Stance/State for choice of armored body they use on creation instead of just Composite Plating which is medium armored in 5th. So Darkwood for unarmored, Mithral for light, Composite Plating for medium and Heavy Plating for heavy armored. This would be similar to 5e Integrated Protection.

    These would obviously require having proficiency through chosen classes to use, or by taking the required feat with your standard feats if not proficient. Following same prerequisite rules as fleshy races have. Similarly they can gain access to use other Stances from class enhancements such as Eldritch Knight's Spellsword for Mithral and Armored Arcana for Composite Plating etc.

    Forgive my relative ignorance regarding 5th Edition, but where are Warforged described for play by players? The Player's Handbook? Some other book?

    Thanks.

    When WotC released the "Wayfinders guide to Eberron" as an electronic source book, let's just say it sold well. Very Well.

    So even though there are other campaign settings that we assume have a great following (Dark Sun, Greyhawk, Krynn, Mystara and others), the Eberron crowd proved they will pay for the material.

    The only problem is "Wayfinders Guide to Eberron" isn't an [insert air quotes] official product for use in League Play. Rather it is a prototype canonizing a series of house rules for a DM to provide consistent rulings.

    Warforged, along with Changeling, Kalashtar, and Shifter are in the "Wayfinders guide to Eberron". Along with the Artificer which is currently in Unearthed Arcana (Pre Release) and all of which are not eligible for "League Play", but it is safe to assume the races and classes will be included in the "Rising from the Last War" Source Book.

    The book also includes a series of adventures set in the Mournland.

    So now we know where all this "Unearhed Arcana" and beta stuff has led to ...
    "Archbishop Dryden wants to talk to you to tapper this dale."
    "Archbishop Dryden wants to talk to you to tap on this dale."
    "Archbishop Dryden wants to talk to you to tap on this tale."
    English is not my first language - misinterpretations galore !

    Well - I know what my tabletop crew is doing next!
    November is probably just enough time for us to wrap up our current Tomb of Annihilation run, and since I both happen to love Eberron and am the slated next DM - it's the perfect storm.

    I'll never get tired of Forgotten Realms. Faerun is just the start! Toril has a ton of content, plus all the other planets in Realmspace.

    I don't know which 'printed' material has it, I saw it on d&d beyond. They have the best defense of any race, maybe except Yuan-ti and their inherent magic resistance.
