Dragonlance Classics: 15th Anniversary Edition
Dragonlance classics is a reprint of the original DL-series of modules for old AD&D 1st Edition. It was these modules that Krynn was built around from.
It is one thick book, filled with good illustrations. As I looked through the book, it had three significant sections. The First dealt with characters and rules, the second had the modules themselves, and the last had some final notes, like NPCs mortal, dragon, and godly. There is also a map in the back of the book, along with AD&D stats for the monsters on the back of the book.
This is the first section. This contains notes on using Dragonlance Fifth Age SAGA game rules with the modules, plus minimal notes for those who play AD&D. It also contains the Characters that Dragonlance fans know and love. It gives stats for both systems: SAGA and AD&D on these characters. Also, tips roleplaying their personalities are also given.
But if anyone doesn't want to play these characters, the modules still allow other characters of the players make to play.
The updates of the old DL-series are well done. They include new options, from roleplaying the Novels as they are to allowing characters to follow their own path, reasonably.
The illustrations in the book capture Krynn, plus there are appearances of characters not found in the Chronicles Novels and early appearances of Goldmoon and Gilthanas. For instance, later in the campaign, you meet Dalamar for the first time in Silvanost.
The appendix contains all the notes you need for your NPCs and magic items. From Fizban the Fabulous to the Dragon Orbs, if it was in the DL-Series or the Novels, they are in there.
Overall this book provides players an opportunity to visit Krynn in the Fourth Age. To me, this was the first real look in a pre-made world. A world of an Excellent Creation. Everyone who had worked on the Dragonlance Project in the Past and is working on it now has built a rich world that makes AD&D look great.
