The Epic Adventure Begins…
Dragon. Creatures of legend. Stories told to children. But now dragons have returned to Krynn. The darkness of war and destruction threatens to engulf the land. Then hope appears – a blue crystal staff in the hands of a beautiful barbarian woman. The promise of hope, as fleeting as smoke upon the autumn wind, forces a group of longtime friends into the unlikely roles of heroes. Knights and barbarian, warrior and half-elf, dwarf and kender and dark-souled mage; they begin a perilous quest for…the legendary Dragonlance.
The War of the Lance is an era in which ancient legends come to life, when ordinary people become heroes during extraordinary times, and when dragons battle for control of the world. Ancient ruins and mighty cities may hold the answers to thwart the will of Takhisis, the Queen of Darkness.
