Poised between the splendor of the Dragon Above and the horrors of the Dragon Below is Eberron, the Dragon Between. Eberron is a land of contrasts—incomparable beauty is matched by hideous evil.

Churning seas divide the continents, broken only by minor archipelagos and isolated rocks that stab up from the frothing waves. Five major continents rise from the seas of Eberron.

Khorvaire has assumed the mantle of the world’s center and the heart of civilization. It is a crucible in which all peoples and races mix and mingle. Human kingdoms stand shoulder to shoulder with those of elves, gnomes, and dwarves. Monstrous lands thrive in the shadows of the civilized lands, while new communities of changelings, eladrin, and dragonborn search for homelands in this diverse and burgeoning land.

The humans of Khorvaire came from Sarlona, a continent far to the east. Now, thousands of years after the human migrations from these lands, Sarlona has become a mysterious realm of strange magic.

South of Khorvaire is Xen’drik. As old as Sarlona, this untamed land has been mostly reclaimed by the wilderness. Rising from the jungles are the ruins of the once-mighty empire of the giants. Drow, sahuagin, and even more vicious creatures prowl these lands, while prospectors and adventurers scour the wilds for the precious dragonshards found here.

At the top of the world stretches the desolate waste of the Frostfell—frozen fields of haunted ice and jagged, unforgiving mountains. Far to the south is the Everice, a frozen region as mysterious as Xen’drik.

Argonnessen is the land of dragons. This continent remains a mystery to mortals. Those who venture to its shores rarely return; those who do come back are never the same, gibbering about savage barbarians, mighty dragons, and wonders to unhinge the mind.

Finally, the world has echo planes, reflections of the Dragon Between: the Feywild, the Shadow fell, and the dream plane of Dal Quor.
