Late in the process of writing Curtain Call: A Sharn Adventure, we realized there were too many ideas and stories we wanted to bring to the players, but there was not enough time or space to complete any of them in one adventure. Many people have asked whether Curtain Call is the beginning of an “adventure path”. I am happy to say–after a couple weeks of planning–that is absolutely is!
Wizards of the Coast recently announced the Embers of the Last War storyline set in Sharn, a twelve-part campaign edited by James Introcaso. I am excited to both run and play in this campaign as part of organized play, but I wanted to do more with a bit more freedom than an organized play format allowed–with amazing art to boot!
Fear Reveals Truth is a multi-adventure series, which weaves together four major plot threads introduced in Curtain Call into an immense story. There are twists, turns, revelations, recurring villains, and betrayals waiting in the pages to be told and experienced. Ideas are being thrown around about having tie-ins from additional authors, side treks and plots that increase content or add details to the story. It will also feature and highlight upcoming Eberron content from Keith Baker, Ruty Rutenberg, Robert Adducci, Kristian Serrano, and yours truly–with some surprise names along the way!
Fear Reveals Truth is being released as individual adventures instead of a complete collection. This means the release schedule will be stretched out across months and through 2019 or even into 2020. The reason is not monetary, but simply a matter of time and logistics. All the contributors are deeply embroiled in work, projects, or children that contributing full time to the adventure path is simply impossible. I wish we could launch the entire thing all at once for those running an Eberron campaign today. In the meantime, I hope to have regular updates regarding the adventure path, the writing process, release schedules, and other fun announcements here on the blog.
(Note: Curtain Call: A Sharn Adventure is on its way to becoming an Electrum best seller on DMs Guild as of this writing. Look for a giveaway contest once that happens!)
