Dragonlance Canticle #34 – Threats to Krynn

Tristan Zimmerman (Zarvox), Trampas Whiteman (Dragonhelm), and Chuck Martinell (Gerrin) talk about what threatening forces are at work on Krynn. From the gods of evil and their followers to the dark knights, the ogres, and beyond, we talk about who’s up to what – and who’s more dangerous than they seem.

    I will be using Mina in my upcoming Dragonlance camp. set 100 years after the “Dark Disciple” series. She has, because of her time with Takhisis and Chemosh, taken over as the ‘head’ goddess of evil. I am working on who will take over as ‘head’ god/goddess of good, but the biggest thing I am doing is taking the gods of magic and making them one god. It is changing things in Krynn but I have run “War of the Lance” camps and post WoTL camps. I am sick of doing both.

    To Anthony: That is a neat idea. I’ve often wondered if she would lean towards taking over that role. Are you going to play the idea of Paladine coming back into the fold of gods or will it be another being (mortal?) ascending in some way?

    To Trampas and the gang!!! I am very interested to hear a followup on this cast after you have read the Ogre Titans. I have just finished it myself and for my part would think that they hold a potential to become the largest threat on Krynn rivaled only by the Minotaurs. But that is just my opinion.

    I also want to say that I really liked the discussion on Hiddukel and his possibility of being the puppet master in the background. I think that The Rise of Salamnia was a key example of just what he can be capable of doing. When you take this perspective, I believe you can easily spin a conspiracy theory of sort concerning him in the other major events. How could all these things possibly work into some master plan of his? I think he would stand to profit (however indirectly) in both the wins and losses of all the various wars. I would be an interesting train of thought to carry through on a campaign or book. Any thoughts?

    Excellent discussion, though there is one point that I think was missed. When speaking of the gods of evil, especially Hiddukel, the point was made that you wouldn’t want to make a deal with them because you know that it will turn out bad. This is true if you know who you are dealing with. If the prince of lies presents himself as a benevolent Cleric of Mishakel (shocking!), then he is a much nastier threat. After all, very few people would willingly strike a deal with Hiddukel, even under dire circumstances, but a person who offers help for a “small” price and represents a trusted party will have many takers.

    To Bluehorse: I was going to have Paladine/Valanthos (or whatever his elven name is) be murdered by Mina to solidify her place as the new Queen of Darkness, and since the main theme of DL is balance, a new god of light as arrived. Though I haven’t figured out who that is yet. I know I don’t want to have some “assended mortal” or have some god get promoted. Still working on that part. 🙂
