GameBanshee has interviewed Ken Troop from Turbine on 'Dungeons & Dragon Online':
GB: You've previously said that the game's quests will not be similar to one another with some randomness to make them unique, but instead will be non-linear and more thought out. Can you expand on this and give us a specific example of a quest players might encounter in the game?

Ken: Overall, our focus for content and quests is to help the player answer the question, “Why is what I’m doing meaningful?” Some of that is taking old standards such as kill or fetch quests and imbuing them with a sense of purpose that colors and shapes your interaction with the story and NPCs.

Eberron is a fantastic setting for this purpose. It’s very story-rich and has a big “pulp-noir” feel -- with lots of believable motivations for the wide variety of different power and interest groups in the world. And yet it also still has plenty of “high fantasy” elements that tie the setting more into what players expect and want out of their fantasy. As a content designer, Eberron is one of the best gaming settings to tell good stories in that I’ve come across.
There's also some screenshots, art and a movie from the recent Turbine Nation event.
