Eberron in 4E: What do you want to know?  
I'm talking with WotC to find out exactly what I'm allowed to say about 4E Eberron. It's tricky, because I want to make sure you have what you need to get a new campaign off of the ground... but at the same time, I can't reveal EVERYTHING that's coming out in the 2009 books because, well, they aren't coming out until 2009.

What's likely is that we'll have a compromise: I'll be able to tell you, for example, the BASIC role of the Eladrin in the world, but you may have to wait for the deeper details of the story that we've built up around them.

With that in mind, however, what I'd like to know is what you're most desperate to know about. There are things you simply aren't going to get: Psionics aren't out at the moment, and there's simply no way I can give them to you. So what I want to know are the things you feel you CANNOT play Eberron without knowing... and to some degree, why. For example, I'm just playing without kalashtar PCs for the moment. They're in the world; people can encounter kalashtar NPCs, and I just fudge their abilities. But with so many possibilities to choose from, it hasn't proven an insurmountable obstacle to play without kalashtar. If it is for you, then you're probably out of luck, because that's one I can't provide on my own.

Anyhow, let me know what's holding you back, and perhaps I'll be able to address the issues in future posts.

Just as a quick note, it sounds like it's confirmed that there will be a working version of the artificer presented in next month's Dragon - so you've got a month to wait there, but it's not a matter of waiting until 2009. More information to come as I get it confirmed.
