Dragonlance comes back to D&D with an all-new adventure and battle game

2 min read

Dragonlance is making a comeback to Dungeons and Dragons this year, and a new adventure book (Dragonlance: Shadow of the Dragon Queen) is on its way in late 2022. This will be joined by an interconnected cooperative board game called Dragonlance: Warriors of Krynn that’s compatible with the overarching storyline.

Although this marks a return to the setting’s classic War of the Lance time-period (which was the focus of Dragonlance’s original D&D modules and novels), both products are being pitched as entry-point to the franchise. During press questions with head of the D&D creative team Ray Winninger, it was emphasised that Shadow of the Dragon Queen works as a primer and mission-statement for the setting. Meanwhile, Warriors of Krynn zooms out for a broader overview of the conflict… but you can still use your Shadow of the Dragon Queen characters in it if you’d like.
