The World of Eberron


The Mortal World of Eberron is made up of six continents surrounded by oceans and a vast underworld.

  • Aerenal
  • Argonnessen
  • Everice
  • Khorvaire
  • Sarlona
  • Xen’drik
  • Khyber – Underdark. Eberron underworld existing beneath the continents and oceans.

Adventure primarily takes place in the central region of Khorvaire known as the Five Nations.

*Aundair (Scholarly)
*Breland (Cosmopolitan)
*Karrnath (Militaristic)
*Thrane (Theocratic)
*Mournland (Formerly Cyre, but now an uninhabited haunted zone.)

Southeast is the small continent of Aerenal, ruled by elves.
Due south is the jungle continent of Xen’drik, once ruled by an empire of giants that collapsed, now largely wilderness (with a polar continent to the south called Everice).

Frostfell is an unexplored land of ice in the north.

The other two main continents are Sarlona and Argonnessen (a continent inhabited by dragons).

The world of Eberron has twelve moons; some sages believe there is a thirteenth moon that has vanished or is invisible to the naked eye.

Progenitor Myth

“Eberron” is also referred to as the Dragon Between.
Siberys, the Dragon Above, is the name given to the planetary rings which surround the planet.
Khyber, the Dragon Below, is the name given to the underworld, and is similar to the Underdark in many other settings.

According to the creation story, the world was formed when the progenitor wyrms changed their form into what they are now.

Siberys created the dragons, Eberron created humanoids and other “lower races”, and Khyber created the “demons” of the world. (The term “demons” is meant to use the common definition, not the D&D outsider.)
