Episode 74: The Lost Canticles

After a leave of absence to complete epic quests, brush up on lore, and seek out the best in Dragonlance gaming, our intrepid hosts return. Waylaid by unseasonable weather in the Sea of Blood and bad directions from a wandering kender, the party gathers around the finest spiced potatoes to bring you the best of Dragonlance.

In this episode, Chuck asks for the best ‘fist-pumps’ of the Dragonlance book line, asking each host to share those edge-of-your-seat, jump-for-joy moments that only a fellow fan can understand.

Connie relates her first foray into Dragonlance, Weldon shows his devotion to collection other language editions of our favourite novel line (but that Dracononian version of ‘The Dark Queen’ eludes him yet), and Chuck reskins ‘Godzilla’ for Krynn.

So saddle up for the Year of Dragonlance and enjoy the ride.

Hosts: Trampas, Chuck, Weldon & Connie.

  1. This episode certainly wasn’t one of my favorites. It started out well but near the end it seemed to descend into a good deal of self-congratulatory commentary.

    A very enjoyable episode. I love how Weldon mentioned they way his fandom intrudes itself onto other media. I have caught myself doing this several times and played the “What if..?” game with myself while watching movies or reading other stories. So that was a very quaint moment for me that put a grin on my face.

    I have to say, that though it was not one of my favorite books in the series but a long shot, one of my favorite “Fist Pump” moments was the last charge of Steel Brightblade. There he is, riding his blue dragon, they both know that they are going to die, but they know what they must do. He reflect both his parents in the best way possible. Self Sacrifice and honor of his father and the blatant and bold “screw it” attitude of his mother as she cries out not in pain, but in the glory of battle rage as he dives towards Chaos while being burned to death, giving Tas a chance to prink his foot and defeat him. It was a moment where you want to feel sorry for him, but at the same time you want to put that fist in the air and say, “Good for him.”

  2. Hey! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay.
