Wizards of the Coast has revealed a new cover for the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons sourcebook Eberron: Rising From the Last War.
The $49.95 hardcover releasing Nov. 19 faced some criticism for the original cover, which was seen by many as not reflective of the Eberron world’s action-adventure theme (but defended by others as embracing the film noir style Keith Baker’s creation).
The new Eberron sourcebook cover art shows a Warforged wizard and Talenta halfling companion. A dinosaur graces the back of the wraparound image.
The images were essentially swapped out; the “old” cover will still be used, but now as the opening for the first chapter, on character creation, Wizards said.
A hobby store-exclusive edition’s alternate cover (pictured) remains unchanged.
In a video released Friday, Wizards’ Greg Tito and Jeremy Crawford discuss the book a bit as well as announce the change in cover styles:
