|Edition||3rd ed. (3.5)|
Eberron is a world of conflict, and nowhere is more evident than in the unexplored reaches of Xen'drik, where giants and drow fight for remnants of a shattered empire. The drow view this continent as their inheritance, wages for the centuries spent under the thumb of oppressive rulers. The giants, meanwhile, have descended into savagery, with only dreams and whispers to remind them of the greatness they once possessed.
The newly released sourcebook, Secrets of Xen'drik, goes into great detail describing both the giants and the drow of this mysterious continent, giving a Dungeon Master most of the pieces he needs to bring these warring parties to life. This article gives an example of how to tie these groups together into a cohesive story, rich with intrigue and adventure. Presented here is a pair of tribes, locked in a struggle of domination and survival. Either could be used individually, to fill out a needed role in any adventure, or together as a separate story that typifies the struggle that rages across the mysterious continent of Xen'drik.
