Feranis' Eberron Game
Eberron is a somewhat gritty world of pulp-action and political intrigue. It’s also a D&D setting, with all the connotations that carries. Notable features of Eberron are its race of living golems, the warforged, and the widespread use of low-grade magics. For more reading, I suggest the Wikipedia entry, or the numerous published books on the subject.
