The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Spring Dawning: Homecoming

Join us for the last dying moments of the Dragonlance Chronicles. And, fair warning—next week, we’ll be doing our big rambling overview, so get ready to share your own favourite moments and monsters!

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Spring Dawning Part 3, Chapters 13 and 14

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Last week, Raistlin showed up draped in black velvet and used the dragon orb to save everyone (but not before toying with Caramon, of course) while Laurana turned her back on Tanis. But now we’ve reached the big, epic, Michael Bay-sized conclusion, so let’s get on with it!

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Last time, Berem was revealed as the Green Gemstone Man as he and the rest of our imprisoned party were busy trying to escape the dungeons. We also met the Queen of Darkness not-quite in the flesh, and—at Kitiara’s urging—Tannis knelt before her to pledge himself to her service. This week, the pell-mell continues as Kit schemes, trumpets blare, and everyone’s conflicted wizard makes his return…

We’re back!

Well, Flint isn’t. (Too soon?)

And Fizban is off doing Fizban things (SPOILER: GOD-STUFF). And Raistlin is off doing Raistlin things (SPOILER: They’re probably really cool things.) And Laurana’s in a fridge. And Goldmoon and Riverwind are pretty much forgotten. Oh, and Silvara and Gilthanas are off fighting a war in the background.

But the rest of us? We’re back!

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Spring Dawning Part 3, Chapters 5 and 6

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Last week, the party reached Godshome—which turned out to be a barren, empty, rock bowl, surrounded by boulders. Berem revealed that he had inadvertently opened a portal that unleashed the Dark Queen, and the party agrees to help him break into Neraka on his quest to see the portal shut for good. This time, the gang runs into trouble almost immediately, and Tanis catches up with an old flame…

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Draconians behind them, the Dark Queen ahead. The party presses on with their final march into darkness, the enigmatic ‘Everman’ a part of their company. This week, they visit a forgotten ruin called Godshome… and you know that’s not going to be uneventful.

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Spring Dawning Part 3, Chapters 1 and 2

Last week we closed off Part 2. Well, re-closed. We tidied things up two weeks ago and last week was more of a denouement, as we shed our friendly barbarian party members, lit candles, and headed out into the great unknown. But now—we’ve got a party, we’ve got a quest, we’ve got a half-elf on a mission, and a grumpy McGuffin with a gem in his chest… What else could we need? Oh, how about a pocket-sized deus ex machina?

Welcome to the third and final part of Dragons of Spring Dawning!

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Spring Dawning Part 2, Chapters 4 and 5

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread! And this week’s chapter titles have ellipses, so you know they’re exciting.

Last week we detoured to EVIL HQ, where we had a villain-off where everyone took turns billowing their capes and reciting their tragic backstories at one another.

We’re going to leave Evil to it this week, and return to our heroes. Is Laurana really going to walk into this painfully obvious trap? And what happened to #TeamTanis?!

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Spring Dawning Part 2, Chapters 2 and 3

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread. Last week was pretty epic. The tide, she hath turned! Disco dragons and Dragonlances and Golden Generals and Knights and Palanthians are reclaiming Krynn from the Dragonarmies, and, as they say in every bad television episode ever, “nothing can go wrong!”.

Except, well, it can. Because Kit is clever… so what are the forces of Evil up to? Let’s have a looksee.

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Spring Dawning Part 1, Chapter 9 and Part 2, Chapter 1

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Last time, Laurana was named commander of the Knights of Solamnia just in time to welcome a flight of friendly dragons led by Gilthanas and Silvara—having recently escaped from the Highlord at Sanction, they had some bad news for Laurana regarding Tannis and Kitiara… This week, Tas and Flint ride into battle, and the citizens of Kalaman celebrate the ‘Spring Dawning Festival’ (convenient!).

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Spring Dawning, Chapters 7 and 8

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Last time, a raging Raistlin trashed a library while Laurana played diplomat and tried to get Palanthas to take the war seriously. This week, Laurana gets an unexpected promotion, and some old friends join the frey, though not without a little drama and heartbreak.
