Critique the Savage Worlds Eberron Conversion Companion

I'm looking for volunteers to critique my guide for running Eberron using Savage Worlds, poorly titled Savage Worlds Eberron Conversion Companion. It's been many moons since I've made any major edits or updates to it, and it's something that was developed throughout many years with many mistakes, corrections, and adjustments via many iterations. I think it could really use a fresh pair of critical and analytical eyes, preferably by individuals intimately familiar with the setting. So if you're interested, read on for more details.

Zombies It Is

Zombies hovering over you

After taking a lengthy hiatus from running and playing my Savage Worlds adaptation of Eberron, I've been looking to get back into the GM seat. If you listen to the Savage Bloggers Network Podcast, you know that I was struggling choosing which new setting (as well as a couple of older ones) to settle on. The list was long.

Savage Worlds or Shaken Worlds?

This weekend, Pinnacle Entertainment Group dropped a pretty amazing rules change on the forums.
At the beginning of their action, a Shaken character makes a Spirit roll to recover. On a failure, he remains Shaken. On a success, the character removes their Shaken condition and may take their action normally.

As you can see on that thread, as well as on the Savage Worlds Google+ Community, there's a lot of disagreement on whether or not this is a good change. A small amount of that disagreement is based on misunderstanding both the intent and the effect of the rules, while others' points of argument are based the actual effects of the rules.
