Taladas: Time of the Dragon Lords
D&D Dragonlance Rules
News: Although I considered these pages basically complete nearly two years ago, changing events have brought us the conclusion of the War of Souls trilogy and soon, D&D 3.5 and the new Dragonlance campaign setting from Sovereign Press. There's no real need to “update” the unofficial conversions when that happens (it would just be duplicating what's already in print), so these will remain as they are, to be used by whoever wants them.
However, this year should see a major update of the Taladas material on this website to coincide with the D&D revised edition and the first official Dragonlance rules for third edition D&D, as well as another potential project that I have in mind through a non-profit roleplaying organisation, Shadow Games. I will say more when this is confirmed!
The following conversion documents will enable you to run a D&D Dragonlance Saga campaign with consistent, clear rules. These conversions are based on Dragonlance Adventures (AD&D 1st Edition), Tales of the Lance (AD&D 2nd Edition), the Dragonlance: Fifth Age® rules, and A Saga Companion. These conversions may be updated or added to occasionally – last updated 14 August 2001.

Notes Regarding these Conversions
Why don't minotaurs receive a +4 bonus to Strength? Why should characters of every race be allowed to become wizards? Why isn't Fifth Age magic based on spell points? Every decision made in these conversions had a good reason; these notes explain some of my thoughts behind the design of D&D Dragonlance. Coming soon.
