The Dragonlance Campaign Setting
hits the streets on Aug 22.
<br />The first Sovereign Press (SP) sourcebook for DL, Age of Mortals
will hit stores after Labor Day (autographed copies can be immediately ordered at margaretweis.com
). MW says it will open an 'unknown future' for DL which will not be dependant on the DL novels, and will give PCs more say in shaping the campaign.
<br />Dragonlance Chronicles
celebrates its 20 year anniversary next year.
<br />The DLSC
has two new classes: Noble and Mystic. A number of PrCs are introduced: the different wizard orders, Knights of Solomnia, etc. Chambers notes that wizard characters who advance without joining a wizard order (i.e. attain an appropriate PrC) will be hunted down. <br />They hint at some changes to the DL pantheon revealed in the War of Souls
<br />The DLSC
allows players Draconions as a PC race.
<br />The Dragonlance Dungeon Masters Screen
will come out by the end of September (with Larry Elmore art). It includes a 32-page booklet, which includes racial weapons (e.g. Kender Hoopak, Gnomish Pick, and Elven blunted arrows) and pre-generated stock characters.
<br />SP is going to be publishing three 128-page mega-adventures taking characters from level one to high levels. The first one is called Key of Destiny
and comes out in October. It is set in Age of Mortals after the Age of Souls.
<br />The DL Beasiary
will be coming out later and will be a full color hardback. MW and JC both stress that the artwork is very good.
<br />The Towers of High Sorcery Book
(Elmore cover) will be a full cover hardbook and will be the main magic sourcebook for DL covering all towers of high sorceror. It's for anyone playing a wizard character. It will have details on the test of high sorcery.
<br />There will be 8 Dragonlance products from SP in 2004.
<br />They talk about their own gaming. Margaret Weis says she doesn't get to role play much nowadays but she likes to play Kender and plays Tasslehoff in particular.
<br />Chambers says that there are plans for a Living Dragonlance campaign with the RPGA. That should start next year. A Living Sovereign Stone campaign is just about to start.
<br />They talk about the DL minotaur, a playable race. They are smaller than the standard Monster Manual minotaur and more balanced with other PC races. Minotaurs are a playable race from level one. There are other races that are not playable from Level 1.
<br />MW says that all future products for DL will be published by SP. The products are sent to WotC for approval. SP products for DL will have a WotC license on the back. This agreement gives SP some more flexibility to work with the Dragonlance setting.
