Campaign idea: The Third Dragon War

Reading The Legend of Huma has rekindled an old idea of mine: adventures during the Third Dragon War. There’s little actual information about this time, so it is necessary to dig around various materials to find what is needed to accurately describe this time in history. Much like my write up on Fistandatilus, I have looked to the novels, The Legend of Huma to be precise, in order to get a feel for the era. Because the novel is not meant for gaming there is a need to somehow incorporate game mechanics into the story. In this post, which I...

Now reading: The Legend of Huma

Having finished some of the “newer” Dragonlance novels, I have decided to return to one of the classics, The Legend of Huma.

There will be no fancy functionality, just a couple of lists. I used Krynnwoman’s list of novels, as my books are packed away. So, thanks for sharing your work

Dragons of a vanished moon

This time it was much more enjoyable to just enjoy the story and follow the progress. Having finished the War of Souls trilogy, I am still left with a weird feeling. Call me old fashioned, but...
