WHAT’S COMING TO ERENEL?
Now that Gamingbrew Media has claimed full copyright of Erenel, a gigantic project is underway. Skilled artists, cartographers and webmasters are revamping EVERYTHING. Every article ever written (over 250) is being revisited and updated. Once the update is complete, an Erenel Campaign Setting on World Anvil will be ready for DMs and Players to explore all the major details of the universe. (more later!)
Once this project ends, an exciting new project will launch. Developing and finalizing Erenel Heroes Handbook and Erenel Campaign Setting in digital (pdf) and print forms.
Here are a few things to expect. The loremasters of Erenel will see many changes.

HOW IS THIS GOING TO WORK?
A campaign setting is never finished, but much of Erenel lives in notebooks and hard drives even with the vast number of current articles. Those who’ve played in campaigns or our living world have undoubtedly had difficulty preparing characters because of this, and it is a problem that needs fixing.
I’ll do what George RR Martin should have already done! I’m preparing to spend the next few months exclusively writing and revising the fictional universe.
You’ll notice the following while this project continues.
Tons of Articles updates. I’ll engage our community with polls and discussion as lore is introduced to point out notable additions.
The release of 5E player options will continue.
All live streams and campaigns will pause until the revamp is complete.
Moderators and community members will be running games in Discord. If you’re waiting for my DM return, I highly recommend you enjoy D&D with one another! Play in games and give running a game a shot.
I’ll be around gaming in non-D&D environments to give myself a break 😊
WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS AFTER THE UPDATE?
I’ll return to the DM role once the update is complete and during project Erenel Handbook.
Plans are being put into place so the community can experience Erenel and shape it, impacting Erenel’s future lore. The exciting part of this next step is that no one will be excluded as long as they’re engaged.
Be on the lookout for announcements on how to play. Don’t worry; while Erenel might seem to pause, it’s far from it. I hope you’re all excited to see what’s in store – and you’ll finally have your Hanoi lore!
