Hello,

Just curiopus what everyone else thinks of this question?
What is the best DL work not By Weis and Hickman?

I thinks it is the Elven Nations Trilogy, this peice of work in my
opinion is the best peice of back story written in the Saga. It also
for me stayed closest to the spirt of th original works.

Haplo

BTW Did anyone notice not a mention of Kith being entombed with that
sword that Tanis "Aquires" from him in the future?

"Dark Heart" by Tina Daniell

or

"Legend of Huma" by Richard Knaack

or

"Reign of Istar" by various

It's a tie between those three for me.

The Vilains Series has a few great titles. While I didn't care for
The Dark Queen, Emperor of Ansalon (Ariakas), and Hederick the Seeker, Lord
Toede made me laugh my buttocks off, and Before the Mask (Verminaard) and The
Black Wing (Khisanth) were both great. The Black Wing is without a doubt the
best book ever written about a dragon's life.

Defenately the Legend of Huma. It's got alot of hystory for Krynn on it,
and leads into the true backbone of the knighthood and what it stands for.
t also shows that the gods are, in part, equal to mortals..some mortals.

I rather liked some of the books in the "Villains" series, particularly
"The Black Wing" by Mary Kirchoff.

"Legend Of Huma" by Richard A. Knaak, followed by "Kaz The Minotaur"
by the same author IMO. A lot of the short stories in the two Tales
trilogies are also brilliant.

I liked The Legend of Huma and Kaz, the Minotaur, too. Other good ones
were IMO Elven Nations and Defenders of Magic trilogies.

Not only that, but when was it that Tanis was with someone saw the White Stag?
They mentioned in passing in the first book that Tanis had "Never seen that stag,
but had been with someone who had."

I had asked questions about that before, but THE LEGEND OF HUMA
was too good to bitch about it -- especially when compared to some of
the later "spin-offs."

Richard, you'll be at Gen Con I hope? I'll be bringing my copy of LAND
OF THE MINOTAURS along just in case.

That' the thing. He mentioned that when Sturm said he saw the stag. It was like he was
with someone who had neen it BEFORE. I've never read any of the meetings sextet and I thought
it might have ten place in the first book with Tanis and Flint.

But it's a good guess.
Sturm saw the stag in some hills/mountains(?) near Darken Wood, and it led
the companions into the forest where they met the Forestmaster, a unicorn.
From there I believe they were taken by Griffon to the Que-shu village (or
what ever it's called in english 8-)).

Alright. Thats the same argument I presented to my friend, but there is a point
to be made in that it is the damn White Stag! That which is in the Legend of
Huma poem! (or whatever that poem was called)...I mean we are talking MAJOR
legend not just a minor detail....just a thought...I really don't care. But
with the amounf of emphasis placed on the White Stag in chonicles it would've
be followed up in Legend of Huma.

I seem to remember a post asking if anyone has seen or heard of some Old
Dragonlance Comics.. Well I was at a friends last night and he stumbled
uppon 4 "TSR Graphic Novel, The DragonLance Saga book 1-4" The last books
say's it continues in with the ending of Dragons of Winter Night. I've
started reading them too, and they are very close to the exact dialog of
the novels. I find them refreshing :) The comics are pretty cool too..
But it was printed in 1987, so i'm guessing if you want to get ahold of a
copy of these, you'd have to go to Gen Con. Good Luck!!

In most of the books, they say that Takhisis entered the material plane because
she seduced a black-robe wizard, convincing him to walk into the portal. In the
Legend of Huma, Galan Dracos, a renegade wizard, is the one who helps her in.
Which version is the "official"?

Sturm, due to head wound, saw the white stag that in legend Huma followed. It
lead them through Prayers Eye Peak (name?) into Darkenwood where the met the
Forestmaster. From their they were transported to Xak Tsaroth on Pegasi.

I think the war in the Legend of Huma was the second or third

What I find hard is associating stories with the appropriate books.. I
was chatting with a friend about DL once during school and he started
telling me the story he was reading..but not teh book. It was
familiar, but I sincerely couldn't place the story. Plus I realized
that I've forgotten alot of the books...): Guess i better start
re-reading them..(:

The Elven Nation is very good, but I like The Defenders of Magic better.
I really liked Lyim. He always reminded me of my favorite character:
Raistlin. The Legend of Huma, the Compainions ,and Brothers Majere are
also very good, IMO.

I also noticed there was no Wyrmslayer entombed with Kith. Just another
oversight, I guess.

I found Dwarven Nations much better. Very Dwarvish. I liked it. Mostly the main
reason I'd rate it higher is that The Qualinesti made me retch. I REALLY did
not like it.

What about the fact that the Second Dragon War was to prevent Takhisis entry to
Krynn? She was there alright and Huma stoped her.

I think the question was whether this Black Robe helped Takhisis in the
Second Dragon War. Is he mentioned in the Legend of Huma? Its been awhile
since I've read the book.

It has been awhile for me too but I think it was a *renegade* mage named
Cyrnus was Takhisis' main helper there.

SPOILER ALERT

Actualy, in DOsF the Irda send a letter to Dalamar the Dark in which the true
history of the world is recited. According to the letter, Chaos, Father of
All and nothing had three children: Paladine, Gilean and Takhisis. The story
goes on but the point is that when Takhisis wanted to get into the world she
appeard before a drak robed wizard as a beautiful woman and claimed she was
trapped in another plane, and convinced him to go through the portal and
open it and thus she enterd Ansalon.
PS: Almost forgot, the portal were built in order to travel between the
towers without the use of magic but they didn't come out as expected.

Greetings:

IOne must remember that the Irda possessed magic that wasn't subject
to the waxing/waning of Krynn's 3 moons. Their magic was different
and therefore could account for magic in play before the Graygem.

Did you forget The Legend of Huma and Kaz the Minotaur? I think they were
very good, too.

I deifinitely think that the best work not by Weis and Hickman has to be
tanis: the Shadow years... i know, a LOT of people might disagree, but i
loved that book... Except for the part about tanis wanting to sculpt...
but, oh well, nothin is perfect, although this book does come close

I read the opener and was too worked up about Fistandilus being in it to
really enjoy the story. I was disapointed that Fist was only a very small
part of the book. It was pretty good though.
