Idea: Lost Legends

I just finished reading The Lost Chronicles, and as usual I thoroughly enjoyed the series. True to form, I know wish Wizards still published Dragonlance books, and what if the published The Lost Legends? It would be a great way to begin a new era of novels by leveraging the old strengths of the series.

Who wouldn’t want more of this good stuff?

What would that series be about? Well, here’s my take

  1. What did Raistlin do during those two years between Chronicles and Legends?
  2. What did Raistlin do while he was in Istar, before and after he defeated Fistandantilus.
  3. What happend during Raistlin’s battle with Takhisis in the Abyss? This one is a less obvious than the others, but it could make for a seriously wild ride.

In all honesty, this idea might actually not be the best thing to do if one was to publish more novels. After the 5th age split the fan base, the last couple of books published, started to move the setting forward, and that might be the best way to create something sustainable,.

Star Wars Theory Podcast

One of my favorite YouTube channels, Star Wars Theory, has started a podcast. So far the episodes aren’t that long, but I think that is OK. The episodes mirror the YouTube channel in content, but I prefer listening on Spotify as opposed to YouTube, which is one big long commercial break.

I highly recommend both the YouTube channel and the Podcast if you like to geek out on Star Wars lore and theories. Oh yeah, he also made a Vader fan film that you really should check out if you haven’t seen it. It is really well done. Check it out Shards of the Past.
