The breathtaking towers of Sharn spiral into the sky, held aloft by miracles of magic and engineering -- and by the Syrania manifest zone that encompasses the area. Without that connection to the Azure Sky, the towers would wobble and collapse like children's toys.
Manifest zones occur when a location on Eberron develops a strong connection to another plane. The effects of a manifest zone depend on its connector plane, its strength, and the plane's current position in relation to Eberron. Its effects never vanish, however, and in some cases they create a major impact on Eberron's geography and inhabitants. This article details three such manifest zones, their special abilities, and random encounter tables keyed to each location.
