Dragonlance Nexus News Issue #49: 10/15/2005
WELCOME TO THE INN
Greetings, friends and fellow companions, and welcome back to the Inn of the Last Home! Today, as our special guests, we have a group of Healing Hands of Mishakal. After treating yours truly recently, I couldn't deny them the chance to tell you all about a great new gaming book – Holy Orders of the Stars. Plus, some of the elven refugees from Silvanesti are traveling through these parts towards the lands of Khur.
So grab your hoopaks and step through the portal. The road to adventure awaits!
If you haven't seen it yet, be sure to grab a copy of Holy Orders of the Stars. Holy Orders of the Stars is a great resource not only for clerics in the Dragonlance setting, but also for other divine followers of the gods as well. Holy Orders includes info on how each race and region of Ansalon views the gods, prestige classes for all the gods (save the gods of magic), expanded entries of each god, entries of each of the churches of the gods, and so much more.
On a personal note, this is a huge milestone in my writing career, being my first cover credit for a gaming product. I'm proud to be working alongside the other designers (Sean Everette, Chris Pierson, and Cam Banks) as well as all the talented people at Sovereign Press who worked so hard to put this together.
Coming soon...Legends of the Twins.
For those that have been itching to find out what happens to the elves after the War of Souls, be sure to check out a recent release – Sanctuary, the first book of the Elven Exiles trilogy by Paul Thompson and Tonya Cook. You can find a review of Sanctuary on the Nexus.
Also, book two of the Dark Disciple trilogy, Amber and Iron, will be on shelves in February. Be sure to check out the listing on the Nexus for the awesome cover.
The comic adaptation of Chronicles continues. Issue #2 was recently released, and issue #3 will be out shortly. Also, be on the lookout for issue #6 of The Legend of Huma in November. My understanding is that there won't be a trade paperback of Legend of Huma at this time. Be sure to reserve a copy at your local comic book store.
The Nexus is bustling with all sorts of new activity of late. First up, the Dragonlance Lexicon (http://www.dlnexus.com/lexicon/)! This is an ongoing project that seeks to categorize the people, places, and things of Dragonlance. The project is off to a great start, and continues to grow every day.
And for fun, Matt has whipped up the Dragonlance Weather forecast and the Dragonlance Moon Tracker. Now you can know the forecast for your favorite cities across Ansalon, and see what position the moons will be in each night.
We have several new additions to our fan rules section, including my compiled and expanded bard guide. Be sure to check out all of our latest additions.
UNTIL NEXT TIME
Before I go, I just wanted to put a shout out about a really great movie – Serenity. This is Joss Whedon's masterful "space western", for lack of better terms. Be sure to check out the role-playing game by Margaret Weis Productions!
See you soon!
Long Live the Lance!
