I've uploaded the newest files for Eberron: Rising from the Last War. Since these are the same as the release version of Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron, those are the actual files that have been updated.

Credit goes to Mergon and Charlie & Niccole Luce for the hard work on WGTE while it was in pre-release. My job has just been to get their great stuff fixed up to match the released versions. And of course thanks to the rest of the community for their help and the excellent reference material.

What's New and Changed
  • All Eberron races updated to match official release
  • The Orc of Eberron added
  • All Dragonmarked subraces have been updated; a few had to be rebuilt from the ground up. All will properly add spells to your class's spell list.
  • The House Agent background has been condensed from backgrounds for each house to a single background; you can use a drop-down to choose your house and therefore your proficiencies
  • The Revenant Blade feat has been updated
  • The goblinoid races from VGM have been updated to be available for ERftLW

What about the Pre-Release Versions?
With the exception of the extra House Agent backgrounds (they've been removed altogether), the versions that were put out in the initial release of Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron and as Unearthed Arcana in 2018 have all been moved. They can be found in Unearthed Arcana - Eberron (2018). See instructions below if you want to continue using them; you'll need to take a few steps to keep doing so.

Install: Keep Using Pre-Release Stuff
When we finally push the next release, the current versions of all 2018 Eberron stuff you're using will be switched to the release. If you don't want that to happen, you need to take a few extra steps first.
  1. Download COM_5ePack_UA - Eberron 2018.user
  2. Download COM_Source_110 - Unearthed Arcana.1st
  3. COM_Source_110 - Sourcebooks.1st
  4. Open up the Hero(es) you want to switch over
  5. Go to the Configure Hero window (Ctrl+k)
  6. Select the Eberron (2018) Unearthed Arcana
  7. Find your race/subrace/background/feat you want to stay with and switch over to it
  8. Uncheck the Wayfinder's Guide in your Configure Hero window

Full Install
If you're good to move to the new stuff and don't want to wait for release, here's all the files you need to pull down from the Github. Place them in the 5e data folder of your Herolab. Look for all the other .user files if you cant find the folder. To "download" the raw files, I usually have to make a .txt file, copy and paste the full text of the .user file, and then save it as the appropriate .user file. Rinse and repeat for each file.
  • COM_5ePack_UA - Eberron 2018.user
  • COM_5ePack_VGtM - Races.user
  • COM_5ePack_WGtE - Backgrounds.user
  • COM_5ePack_WGtE - Feats.user
  • COM_5ePack_WGtE - Races.user
  • COM_Source_110 - Sourcebooks.1st
  • COM_Source_110 - Unearthed Arcana.1st

Also, I made an update to COM_5ePack_UA - Eberron.user to fix a few dragonmarks (feats) that showed up even if that UA isn't selected. Also also, I retitled that UA in the configure hero screen to be "Eberron (2015)," making it distinct from the 2018 stuff.

What's Next?
First off, the Artificer can't be properly implemented without programming changes on Lone Wolf's side. It sucks, but it's our reality. So that's going to happen...someday maybe? It's up to them. The other stuff left for Eberron is magic items, monsters/npc's, and the Aberrant Dragonmark feat.

If someone really wants to get started on the monsters, let me know and I can whip up placeholder versions of them without abilities pretty quickly. For the Aberrant Dragonmark, I've already updated it to not be selectable by the other dragonmarked subraces, and to recharge on a short rest. It otherwise needs updating that isn't a priority for me.

I'm going back to try and finish MToF and the monsters from BGDiA, then I'll come back to this. Check out the Github Issue and Project Board if you wanna know more.

Feel free to stop by the Lone Wolf Development Subreddit, for discussion of any and all LWD products and community efforts!
