Great for beginners and committed fans alike of Eberron
Hosted by 4 people including Keith Baker, this is a great discussion of various topics in Eberron. There are a few overviews from conventions scattered throughout for people new to Eberron, and then the various topic episodes go deeper.
Look how far we’ve come...
This podcast is one of my favorites. It applies to a very certain niche group, which is D&D players who want to run or play in Eberron. I recommend this podcast to every friend who has an interest in D&D and Eberron. Great cast, and the topics have given me new insights I didn’t think that I actually needed. (The Halfling and Dragon episodes are amazing!)
Kristian is a great host, and having Keith there to bounce ideas and questions off of is so great! Keith not only made Eberron, not only loves it; he knows his world!
I love when Wayne or Scott make it, but life :/
All in all, great podcast and you should listen to it.
Finally, Eberron in 5E!!! Woot!!
Fan from the beginning of Eberron, love it
I bought the first Eberron book when it came out, and I've promptly devoured everything released for it since. It's great to listen to to creator of the setting, Keith Baker, and several fans as invested as I am talk about the setting in such detail.
