Greetings adventurers of Krynn! I am Meaghan J, the new producer of the Dragonlance Canticle podcast and I’m so thrilled to tell you about the future of the Canticle. But first, let me tell you how I become a disciple of Dragonlance.
I was introduced to Dragonlance at 11-years-old by a friend who handed me his copy of “Dragons of Autumn Twilight” and told me to read it. A lifelong obsession was born that day. For years, I read every Dragonlance novel I could get my hands on. The novels were actually my gateway into the game, and I began to run games of D&D for my friends. For years, my 2nd edition “Tales of the Lance” boxed set was one of my most treasured possessions and the map of Ansalon included hung on my bedroom wall. What Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel, DC, or Lord of the Rings is for some kids – Dragonlance was that for me.
I began podcasting two years ago with my own podcast “D and D Book Club”, which focused on the Dungeons and Dragons-inspired novels of the 80’s and 90’s, starting with the core Dragonlance novels by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. I was invited to join the Dragonlance Canticle team as a guest host last year before being asked to take over as producer in April 2022. Naturally, I couldn’t resist the call to adventure.
With the pending release of the new Dragonlance novel “Dragons of Deceit” in August and the release of the first official 5th edition Dragonlance adventure, 2022 is shaping up to be an incredible year for Dragonlance fans.
At the Dragonlance Nexus, we’re keeping pace by continuing to produce original 5th edition content including a revised version of our all-in-one sourcebook “Tasslehoff’s Pouches of Everything”, our new adventure series “Champions of Krynn”, our live stream campaign “Dragons on the River of Time”, and several other exciting projects currently in development.
The Dragonlance Canticle, the Nexus’s exclusive podcast, is evolving as well. We will continue to do deep-dives into Dragonlance lore and Dragonlance novels as we’ve always done, but we will be branching out into new formats as well.
That means up-to-date episodes focused on the latest Dragonlance and D&D news, insightful interviews and discussions with influential figures in the Dragonlance community, and new Dragonlance actual play content.
I feel truly honored and privileged to be given this role. I would like to thank all of the Dragonlance Nexus team especially my predecessor at the podcast Chuck Martinell, who is stepping away from the show to focus his efforts on producing new and outstanding game material.
If you’d like to help the podcast grow and thrive, please leave us a review on Apple Podcasts or Spotify. Positive reviews will help other fans find our show and increase our exposure among the wider D&D community. Dragonlance has been in the shadows for too long. Our time has come at last!
Thank you for your support and hail Takhisis!
