It's been entirely too long since the last one of these, so I'll try to update you on what's been going on at both Dragonlance.com and in the Dragonlance world in general. For my late new year's resolution, I'll resove to get these updates out to you more often! With that said, the latest news...

Weis & Hickman Chat Log
http://www.dragonlance.com/features/chat/01262002.cfm
The infamous Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman were good enough to join us for a live chat session last Saturday, that Dragonlance.com and the Dragonlance Nexus co-sponsored. The link above is the log from the hour-long conversation we had with the New York Times bestselling authors, who answered a variety of questions like "will there be a third book in the Raistlin Chronicles" (probably not) and some questions on how to get started as a writer. Another chat session is tentatively scheduled this summer after the release of "Dragons of a Vanished Moon", but more on that below!

Knight's Council Interactive Game
http://www.dragonlance.com/features/games/
The latest in a series of interactive games we've been putting together, Knight's Council is a game where you stand accused by the Knight's Council and must prove your innocence by answering their questions correctly. It's not so easy, however, when you have to provide the questions and they provide the answers! Make sure to take a look if you haven't already.

A Fan Music Contest
http://www.dragonlance.com/fan/music/
We're currently in the process of developing a contest for fans of the Fan Music section on Dragonlance.com! Mark Boehnlein proposed the idea of a contest a week or two ago, and we're currently working out the details of the contest right now. Look for that in the next couple of weeks on the site, and also make sure to check out the two new musical pieces that have appeared in the music section as well.

Dragons of a Vanished Moon Update

Two major updates to note on Dragons of a Vanished Moon, the third and final book in the War of Souls trilogy. The first is that the book's publishing date has been definitively set for June 2002, so look for that early this summer. The final cover art for the book has also been approved and put online, which is the second link above. Definitely worth a look!

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