Rank #8: The Dragonlance Canticle Episode 4
This episode is a discussion on the recent announcement that Wizards of the Coast has chosen to not renew the Dragonlance RPG license with Margaret Weis Production. I know, I know, we mentioned in episode 3 that this would be about the Heroes of the Lance, but with this recent development we felt we needed to address that instead. We’ll come back to the Heroes in a later episode.
In this episode you’ll hear what this means for MWP and the fans. You’ll also here another part of Tal’s State of the Lance and Dragonalnce’s 5 year cycle. It put’s the recent events in perspective and shows that this is not the death knell for Dragonlance. We then move on and talk about we as fans can do to keep Dragonlance alive. This episode is focused on the gaming license but it’s chock full of history of Dragonlnace’s history as a product. Enjoy!
Long Live the Lance!

At last, the promised episode about the Heroes of the Lance…well sort of.

Great Scott! Proving that there’s no school like old school, the trio fire up the Dragonlance Delorean and travel back to a time of VGA graphics and SSI-created video games.
Our hosts cover eight of the classic 1980’s and 1990’s Dragonlance games, offering their suggestions for improvements, discussion on how these games hold up to modern-day standards, and even how to cheat to win the War of the Lance. (Adrian needs a ‘Sturm Does Not Approve’ meme for this – can the community help?).
Strap yourself in for all the fun of 1.21 gigawatts of retro-Dragonlance!

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Canticle after a summer break for our hosts to take care of real life business. Moving on, I (Valharic) went to Gen Con ’08 this year and had a blast. I sit with Talinthas and Trampas and make them jealous.
The first half of the show I discuss what fun things I did and encountered during the show. I ramble on about True Dungeon. A great, emersive, and live D&D experience. Here’s a picture of our group in costume prior to going into True Dungeon. I’m the wizard that ate Raistlin. For you Fear the Boot podcast fans, note the Headbands of Awesome +10.
I also made a mention of Dwarven Sweatshoppe. I’ll probably be getting something from them next year.
In the second half we talk about the Dragonhearth/Dragonlance Q&A and important things about Dragonlance that was said there. The panel consisted of:

Rank #20: Dragonlance Canticle #86 – Towers of High Sorcery (Part 2)
Welcome friends and fellow companions! After a rough intro, the usual suspects open the episode with a discussion about the recent Drivethrurpg Bounty, and tackle the contentious issue of loaded dice at the table.

Weldon (Sage of Solace that he is) also provides a wealth of reading sources throughout the show. For those of you without a notebook handy, he suggests:
The King Priest trilogy
Legend of Huma
Defenders of Magic trilogy
Price of Courage (gaming supplement)
Soulforge (both the Choose Your Own Adventure, and the novel)
Brothers in Arms
