More great ideas for Eberron,
This review is from: Races of Eberron (Dungeons and Dragons v3.5 Supplement): A Race Series Supplement (Dungeons & Dragons) (Hardcover)
This book is cool. Not essential by any means unless you are playing an Eberron campaign, in which case you could do a lot worse than investing in this book of goodies. There are very few wasted pages here. We get new feats and gear and powers and so on - all of which serve to expand the range of customisation for eberron characters which is a good thing of course.
The icing on the cake really is the sections devoted to a more in-depth analysis of the Eberron specific races. This is of course pure 'fluff' compared to the 'crunchy' rules additions, but it really helps to get to know these races a little more, espcially the Kalashtar and the Changelings, neither of which really grabbed me in the inital campaign setting book. I really like the Kalashtar angle now, sort of undercover freedom fighters fighting against an insidious and alien race that many are unaware of.
Why only 4 stars? Well it is a bit short for the money, although the artwork and presentation is top quality as always and I would have preferred a bit more info on the Eberron versions of iconic D&D races, something to set them out from the pack a little more.
Still for Eberron fans, this really should be on your purchase list as there are loads of ideas on offer here.
