[Krynnspace] DLE3 Dragon Keep and Lunitari

Post by Big Mac » Tue Aug 28, 2018 7:37 pm

Dragonlance's DLE trilogy ends with DLE3 Dragon Keep by Rick Swan.

I've heard that some Dragonlance fans say they say they consider this adventure non-canon because there are some sort of mistakes in it...

...but...

...it has a section set on Lunitari! :cool:

I've also heard that there are some conflicts with the canon in the novel Darkness and Light, which is also set partly on Lunitari.

So, I'd like to look at the DLE3 Dragon Keep to see how the section, the entire adventure module and the DLE trilogy can fit in with Spelljammer and Krynnspace.

I've got three questions I am most interested in:
  • What Lunitari canon does DLE3 provide that can be used in an ongoing Krynnspace campaign?,
  • What sort of conflicts are there with other Lunitari sources and what ideas do you have for getting different sources to fit together? and
  • Is there a way to change the DLE trilogy into a series of Krynnspace adventures that end up with a trip to Lunitari? I think I'll bump the "Would the DLE modules work better in Krynnspace?" and use that for discussing this.
I bought DLE3 a few years ago, but have barely skimmed through it, so if anyone knows this book better than me, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.

Unfortunately, I haven't read Darkness and Light nor have I run DLE3. So I can't help you there.

I have looked at the Lexicon article on the Lunitari moon, but there's not a lot there to address your questions.

You may ask in the Dragonlance Adventures FB group.

Thanks. I'll get those added to the bottom of the first post, as "additional reading".

That surprises me. These sources of canon on Lunitari seem to get overlooked by most people. I thought you might be curious enough to read them, because they are crossover content for Dragonlance and Spelljammer.

I would have loved to have heard your take on the ecology of Lunitari that DLE3 establishes.

Oh well, never mind, when I next get time, I'll have a look at some of the individual facts about Lunitari and see how well they fit the vibe of both Dragonlance and Spelljammer.

I love the Lexicon, but sadly it doesn't have inline citations like Wikipedia does...which makes it difficult to read up more on an individual bit of information an article throws up.

I actually asked for help with the Lunitari article, back in 2016, but it doesn't look like there is a list of the facts within the article anywhere.

Weldon Chen suggested I look at DLE3 Dragon Keep, but I've discovered since that there are other sources of Lunitari canon. (I'm trying to make a list of everything in my [Krynnspace] Lunitari - Krynn's Moon of Magic topic, so that I can then discuss each source separately and find out what it adds to the mix.)

I might ask there as well. There is also a Spelljammer group on FB. I might also ask in there.
