Q'barra, Part 2

In the world of Eberron, dragonshards are the lifeblood of modern civilization. From the message stones of House Sivis and the airships of House Lyrandar to the coldfire lanterns found on the streets of every city, dragonshards are an integral part of life in the Thronehold nations. With every year the demand for shards grows.

Humans came to Q'barra in search of sanctuary, not profit. Less than a decade ago, colonists in Pitchwall found a patch of Eberron dragonshards while digging new wells. Drawn by the reports, Tharashk prospectors soon found that Q'barra had vast Eberron dragonshard deposits, including Eberron shards with qualities never before seen by the house. Combined with the end of the Last War, this discovery has drawn a host of new forces to Q'barra. The shard rush is on, and this is threatening to destroy the delicate balance of power that exists between the humans and the native races of the region... and potentially, to unleash horrors from the dawn of time.
