Fan Fiction & Poetry Contest
http://www.dragonlance.com/features/contest/
Dragonlance.com has teamed up with Raistland.com to sponsor a fan fiction and poetry contest! Submissions of original, unpublished fiction and poetry are being collected between now and September 30. There's no minimum length (though we do recommend a minimum of 2 pages for a story) or maximum length, and for complete rules or to submit a story check out the URL above. First place is an autographed copy of "The Annotated Dragonlance Chronicles", and second and third place are gift certificates to Amazon.com. We're looking forward to reading all the entries!

Nancy Berberick & Douglas Niles Interviews
http://www.dragonlance.com/features/interviews/
Our very own Nuitari has just recently completed an interview with Nancy Berberick, author of numerous Dragonlance novels including her newest, The Inheritance. In addition, he's collecting questions for an upcoming interview with Douglas Niles, author of The Messenger, the first book in the Icewall trilogy. Check out those and other interviews with Margaret Weis, Tracy Hickman, Matt Stawicki and Richard Knaak on the Interviews page!

Villains Quiz
http://www.dragonlance.com/features/games/
"Which Villain Are You?" That's the question our newest quiz asks. Run through the quiz questions to determine which of 10 villainous personalities you are most like from the annals of Dragonlance history!

A New Poll
http://www.dragonlance.com/features/polls/
This month's poll question asks if you'd buy a video game like Baldur's Gate or Icewind Dale if Interplay were to make a game like that for the Dragonlance setting. So far, the overwhelming majority has spoken and voted that they'd buy the game in a heartbeat. What are your thoughts on the matter? Vote for sticking to pen and paper games and your d20, or perhaps classics like "The Dark Queen of Krynn". Either way, cast your vote now -- and if we get enough votes in favor of a game, who knows?

That's the news for now! Until next time, I bid you farewell.
