Shadows of the Last War is an adventure module set in the Eberron campaign setting. It was first released in July 2004 for 3.5 edition and is a sequel to the first Eberron adventure, The Forgotten Forge. The adventure is for 2nd level characters and was designed by the creator of the Eberron campaign setting, Keith Baker.
The ruined House Cannith citadel of Whitehearth holds the key to constructing a terrible magic weapon. Agents of the Emerald Claw will stop at nothing to recover the ancient device. As malevolent forces hunt for the artifact, resourceful heroes battle the perils of the Mournland to reach Whitehearth first and discover the secrets that lie within. "Shadows of the Last War" is a stand-alone adventure for the Dungeons & Dragons game that will immerse your characters in the Eberron campaign setting. Designed to challenge 2nd-level D&D heroes, it pits them against one of Eberron's most nefarious organizations.


The module is a linear adventure with no side quests and features two dungeon sites, Rose Quarry and Whitehearth. There are six parts to the adventure and is centred around a House Cannith artefact which the player characters must retrieve before the villains, the Order of the Emerald Claw. The adventure starts in Sharn and leads to Rhukaan Draal and finally to the Mournland.


The physical copy of the adventure is a softback booklet featuring eleven black and white images of art and three in book maps.
