Check out the trailer!

The trailer features a warrior (perhaps a Knight of Solamnia?), an elven Red Robe Mage of High Sorcery, and a kender. They appear to be fighting against the Red Dragonarmy. And are those red draconians we see?


Here are some other images seen in the trailer.

More to come!

Shadow of the Dragon Queen and Warriors of Krynn will be released late 2022.

  1. Such great news. The Lance Lives Again!

    I hope this is an interesting reintroduction of the setting, one that meshes the old canon and the new (i.e. 5E) mechanics well.

  2. Plume Plainswind

    Ummmmm. . . YEP! Gonna be awesome! So glad we are getting another shot at a Dragonlance revival. Heard the board game was only 2 player though – wishing it was more.

  3. Though the trailer is a bit generic, I love the details they include to honor Dragonlance history: a nice magic staff with light casted upon, the Red Dragonarmy, the shield of breath absorption, a kender with top knotted hair, the Legion of Steel reference, the flying fortress… Boy, I’m twelve again.

    • Not only a Legion of Steel reference, but also a Dragons of Summer Flame reference. Steel’s words became the motto of the Legion of Steel.

      That caught my ear too!
