It’s official

pic.twitter.com/1ZunpN7L77— Margaret Weis (@WeisMargaret) January 25, 2021 I am a little concerned that we will get more War of the Lance stuff. Moving Dragonlance forward would have been really great in my opinion. That being said, I am just happy we get new books – eventhough I sound like grognard 😉

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 What did Raistlin do during those two years between Chronicles and Legends? What did Raistlin do while he was in Istar, before and after he defeated Fistandantilus.What...

Riding the wave

Last night I watched the latest episode of Game of Thrones. For some odd reason I haven’t been watching this show, but my wife has, and she suggested we watch the last season together. So basically, I have skipped the entire book and have jumped right to the last page. In last night’s episode, there was a dragon battle, which of course made med think of Dragonlance. I know, obvious. There has been a lot of talk in the Facebook group about an upcoming live action rendition of Dragonlance, which a lot of people seem to be interested in. Given...

A tiny light in the dark?

I stumbled upon this post by Tracy Hickman from February. Now, as any good fanboy I went down the rabbit hole and started imagining what new Dragonlance project had been green lit by the Dragon Highlords in Seattle. It is of course wishful thinking, as there have been no signs whatsoever of a resurrected Dragonlance since the line was discontinued back 2007. However, if we allow ourselves to dream a little, one might have a preference as to what will be released. A lot of people on Facebook talk about a live action movie or TV show like Lord of...

Reading The Messenger

I have been reading The Messenger this weekend. Well, I have read two chapters that is. Between three children and a new kitchen project that was about what I had the time for. That, however, is not necessarily a bad thing. This way the series will last longer. There’s not much to say about it yet though. It is set in Icewall, which I think it really great and makes for an interesting setting. And then it’s written by Chries Pierson who is one of my favorite Dragonlance authors. So, if you are still feel that Dragonlance itch and have...

Elven Exiles done

Two weeks ago I finished the final novel in the Elven Exiles trilogy and let me tell you that was some of that good stuff. I never fully understood why the elves always were the victims considering their vast power and knowledge. However, especially the War of Souls totally kills everything we had come to associate with the elves. There, I think it’s really nice to see them find their new homeland and rebuild their nation in a meaningful way. Again, I can only cry about the fact that Dragonlance novels are a thing of the past as I think...

Sanctuary (The Elven Exiles)

In my quest to collect all three books in the Elven Exiles trilogy I have so gotten my sticky hands on volume 2 and 3. Volume 1, Sanctuary, has up until now eluded me, as Amazon have not been able to acquire it anywhere. Luckily I found another seller on Amazon, and it looks like I will receive the book during my summer vacation. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Collecting Elven Exiles

The Dragonlance Canticle inspired me to read the Elven Exiles trilogy. Since this is out of print it is really difficult to get this series, however, that will not stop me from trying. Today I received the second book in the series, so I can’t start reading just yet. Good thing I am still  reading the Taladas trilogy.

Now reading: Taladas trilogy

One of the really sad things about the death of Dragonlance in my opinion, is the fact that wew ill never see any real meaningful development of the continent of Talads. I have started reading Chris Pierson’s excellent trilogy, and the more I read the more I want to explore this continent. I was never a bg fan of the Time of the Dragon boxed set, simply because it lacked some of the details I was interested in at the time. Especially NPC stats, organizations, cities etc. were never really fleshed out to the extent that I wanted to see....
