  1. I was finally able to hear it without interruptions! Amazing input on the war, how to make the war weigh in to the characters at the start of a campaign (even the crude descriptions).

    Was it me or “thanks, everyone” at the end sounded very much like “thanks, Eberron”? Hahaha

    I’ve been inspired to work on some 5e backgrounds tied to specific nations for Eberron.
