About the adventure

Eberron is an innovative D&D setting developed by Keith Baker, inspired by over the top pulp adventure and film noir, shades-of-gray fiction. Familiar things from D&D exist, but in unusual settings. A nation of elves is ruled and guided by benevolent undead; halfling tribes ride fierce dinosaurs across the grassy plains; a trio of hags brings stability, not ruin, to a desolate area. Magic is used as technology; streets are lit by continual flames, and lightning rails and elemental skyships connect faraway locations. The world is emerging from a century of war, and at risk of being plunged back into it. Curtain Call is a one-shot adventure for beginning characters in the great city of Sharn. A search for a missing noble leads to street chases, spy agencies, sinister plots, and worst of all, theatre.
