Dragonlance Nexus News Issue #18: 11/4/2001

Hail All,

Greetings, fellow companions, and welcome to another issue of the Dragonlance.com News. It has been a while, but we are back and better than ever. We apologize for the delay.

Ah, but you're probably wondering where Paladin is. Well, Paladin has asked me to take over for him as the author of the Dragonlance.com News.

My name is Dragonhelm. Some of you may know me already from the Dragonlance Nexus (official Dragonlance gaming website) and still others may not know me at all. I hope to become a familiar "face" to all of you.

We've got a lot of updates and for you so let's get to it!

UPCOMING EVENTS
Coming soon from Dragonlance.com:
- We've got a Fan Art Contest coming your way, so get your best pics ready.
- Plus... What is "Dragonlance Jeopardy"?
Keep watching Dragonlance.com for more details.

DRAGONS OF A VANISHED MOON UPDATE
From Tracy Hickman's latest newsletter...
The final novel in the War of Souls Trilogy is moving ahead quite wonderfully. We are under strict deadline and should have this manuscript ready to roll by the first week in November... I am currently working with several fine people on the appendix for the book. We are all very excited about this appendix, which deals with the roots of the War of Souls, the cosmology of Dragonlance and its foundational roots. Once we get past this deadline, I'll introduce you to those who are assisting on this project ... names which are most likely familiar to many of you.

AND SPEAKING OF WAR OF SOULS...
So, you're itching for more War of Souls, but you can't wait? The Search For Magic: Tales From the War of Souls and Bertrem's Guide to the War of Souls are in stores now.

OTHER NOVEL IDEAS
Chosen of the Gods, the first novel in the Kingpriest Trilogy, is now available. Be on the lookout for Conundrum in December. Also, the Dwarven Nations Trilogy will be available in ESD format soon.
