Amazon finally sent me my copy of the Dragonlance Campaign setting. Actually, it didn’t take them that long, but since I have been a little impatient, I felt like it took forever. Anyway, I paid £ 5 for a brand spanking new copy, so that was a really good price.
The last couple of weeks I have been exploring the 5th Age setting. Originally I really disliked what they did with Dragonlance after Dragons of Summer Flame, but since the world more or less returned to normal, I figured I would give it a shot. And I am glad I did, even if it is about five years too late.
I am still not a fan of the way the world was stolen, but I think the setting might actually have benefitted from the reset. It seems that there is a lot more opportunity now to create themes that are not adhering to a strict Dragonlance code, and since the two major deities are gone, it is much easier to explore the rest of the pantheon. I particularly like how the gods are not quite as grouped as they were before.
My plan is to update some of my later writings, so they fit the Age of Mortals, and use these for the basis of my new campaign with the gang. Hopefully we will start in May, but things have gone wrong before. I will post whatever I write here on the blog, so if that ever happens feel free to tell me what you think.
