Gaming Area
Once again, I'm going to send out a call to any and all interested parties: if you have ever played a D&D campaign set in the Dragonlance world and are interested in getting some of your original campaign material published, we'd be more than happy to help you out by putting it up for the world to see on Right now we're even mulling over the idea of a contest for the best submission to the gaming section, but we'd like to see some more people submit work first!

Fan Art & Writing (and Contest Info)
A lot of new fan artwork and writing has been put up on the site lately! One of the major things I'd like to announce is the full-length (we're talking 200 pages here!) novel by Ryan Magus. While it's not specifically set in the Dragonlance world, it promises to be interesting reading. In addition, we're putting the finishing touches on the 2nd Annual Dragonlance Fan Art & Writing contest. We've got most of the rules set and the judges lined up, but there are a couple of details that need to be worked out before we'll be moving forward with it. If I were interested in participating, I'd look for more info right around the 1st of October... :-)

Children of the Plains
by Paul B. Thomspon & Tonya C. Cook
The newest Dragonlance book, 'Children of the Plains', is also the first in a new series called 'The Barbarians'. This specific story is about a young man and woman who strike out on their own to create a civilization. Also be on the lookout for upcoming releases: "Draconian Measures" by Margaret Weis and Don Perrin in November, "The Thieves Guild" by Jeff Crook in December, and a new edition of the "Legends" trilogy and a book by Douglas Niles called "The Messenger" in February 2001. Softcover editions of "Dragons of a Fallen Sun" and "Downfall" will also be available early next year; look for "Dragons of a Lost Star" in April 2001.

That's the news!. So, until next time, I bid you farewell.
