Thanks for listening

Good Journey Gary…

Gary Gygax, the father of Dungeons & Dragons past away today. My heart goes out to his family and friends and wish him the best. As a fan of the Greyhawk setting and to put it in gaming terms, the land of Oerth is a little sadder today, I know Gary is up there with the Gods of Greyhawk today.

Rest in peace Gary.

The Dragonlance Canticle Episode 11 – Stan Brown Interview

Alright back from the holiday hiatus. We’ve got an interview with Stan Brown author of the Dragonlance Young Readers Novel Dragon Day. But before that we catch up on a few items.

  • Buying DL products from MWP comes to an end in March
  • Oh yeah, there’s this movie coming out on DVD on Tuesday, January 15th. You may have heard of it. Titled Dragonlance: Dragons of Autumn Twilight.
  • Trampas got a D&D 4th Ed Preview book for Races and Classes
  • We talk about the Tiefling and Gnome roles in 4th ed. Here’s the fun little video about them. Also here’s the Beholder video.
  • We also speculate what things in 4th ed. they “borrowed” from Dragonlance and what things may work in Dragonlance.
  • I’m guessing Orcus (a classic D&D Demon Prince) will be a diety in 4th Ed. and here’s a couple of pictures of a possible Colossal Miniature that may come out in 2008.
