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

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Last time we suffered through heavy-handed song about Kitiara’s dark and poisonous beauty, and a flashback that showed Berem accidentally killing his sister Jasla in a fit of greed-induced rage. This time we begin the final Dragonlance Chronicles book in earnest, as Tanis slinks out of Kitiara’s bed and back to his friends…

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Winter Night, Epilogue

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Last week was a little traumatic—perhaps the series’ most memorable moment, but also it’s most heart-breaking. This week, the book’s final chapter, is about the aftermath. Is this a time for healing? For despair? Let’s see how our heroes are handling their loss…

[Very dark. Very stormy.]

Dragonlance Reread: Dragons of Winter Night Part III, Chapters 13 and 14

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Last week, Derek lead a doomed campaign against the Dragonarmies. Meanwhile, Tas wandered off to the High Clerist’s Tower and found another dragon orb—and he may have figured out a way to use it. This week, more shrieks and yells and blaring of horns from the Dragonarmies…

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Winter Night Part III, Chapters 5 and 6

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread! Let’s head back to Krynn for our weekly visit. Last week, Raistlin had a run-in with the Dragon Orb while Fizban chastised Tas over his bout of petty theft.

This time, we’re going to check out the Gnomes home and visit the Council too—important decisions must be made!

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Winter Night Part III, Chapters 3 and 4

We’re back! Things are accelerating! Last week we had a courtroom drama and exotic dancers and magic (kinda) and lots of POV characters and all sorts of interesting things in Occupied Krynn. This week, well—things don’t slow down much. Has Tanis successfully crowd-funded the rest of the adventure? Will the Knights do something weird and self-defeating? Will Fizban… Fizban?

Yes! All this and MORE.

[So you wanna play with magic. Boy, you should know whatcha falling for.]

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Last week we (finally) got Silvara to confess her big secret! Well, we didn’t—but Fizban did. And he’s so beyond the Fourth Wall that he’s probably reading this now. (Hi Fizban!) With Silvara spilling and Fizban fussing and Laurana listening and Gilthanas gawking and Tas taking off, we’re now out of a) alliteration and b) the Kagonesti storyline. And, frankly, thank the gods of Good, Evil and Neutrality for it.

Let’s see what our other friends are up to, shall we?

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Winter Night Part II, Chapter 10

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Remember waaaay back when we were super-excited about following #TeamLaurana and their adventures? Those halcyon days of youth, when elf-politics seemed exciting, and the worst thing we had to complain about was Gilthanas’ dating technique? That was a long time ago. But, huzzah! We are at the end of this section! No more wandering in the wilderness, and best of all, time to learn…

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Winter Night Part II, Chapters 8 and 9

Welcome back! Thanks for indulging us in our Dragons of Winter Break (zing!)—now we’re back and raring to go. Bring on the dragons! The lances! Any combination thereof!

As a brief recap—our party split (rookie error) and the groups are off having independent adventures. We haven’t heard from Team Tanis for a while, and Team Laurana has now split off, with Team Sturm delivering the Dragon Orb to Sancrist. The remnants of Team Laurana are scampering around Elven territory, following their mysterious guide (and Gilthanas’ girlfriend?), Silvara.

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Winter Night Part II, Chapters 6 and 7

We’re back! Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving! And speaking of awkward situations involving relationships between expansionist settlers and the indigenous population, how about those Kaganesti elves? (Awkward segue!) When we last saw Laurana, she and her buddies—including her sex-starved brother—were fleeing through the wilderness, pursued by… pretty much everyone.

…and that’s pretty much still what’s happening.

[…and that’s pretty much still what’s happening.]

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Winter Night Part II, Chapters 4 and 5

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Last week our secondary party had lost and then reclaimed their dragon orb from a group of Laurana’s elfin relatives, and were busy making a hasty exit with their new slightly shady companion, Silvara. This week, we hear the sad tale of a legendary silver dragon, and Gilthanas gets stalker-y.

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Winter Night Part II, Chapters 2 and 3

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Y’all, we’ve had dragons and… dare we say it… a hint of lance! Plus orbs are everywhere, there are Highlords in every corner of Krynn and even the walrus-men have made an appearance (well, sort of). All things considered, probably a bad time to be on a boat.
