Lessons learned
I'm getting increasingly annoyed with D&D rules crunch.

The writeup of the various Eberron races was very well done (kalashtar = Jedi!), and will help me a lot with my ongoing Eberron campaign. On the other hand, the rules portion left me cold. And indeed, I am beginning to think that D&D has recently jumped the shark with entirely new mechanics like Racial Substitution Levels and Mindset spells. Well, good thing that I am using GURPS for Eberron instead...
