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…

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.

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!).

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Chronicles Reread!

Last time, things got dark as Raistlin gave in to the power of the dragon orb and his own selfish desires, and Tanis was carried off on a dragon by Kitiara. This week, Raistlin seeks help from a super-librarian, and Laurana gets no respect from the nobles of Palanthas.

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…

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.]
