Dragonlance Canticle #65 – Raistlin and Draconians

Was Raistlin the only choice Par-Salian had to become his “sword?” Is Par-Salian even Good in alignment? Are draconians still evil?

Plus Adrian is wrangling tinker gnomes. All of this and more on this episode of the Dragonlance Canticle!

Dragonlance Canticle #64 – Banter and Small Topic Roundup

Adrian joins the crew as the new producer, but what has he gotten himself into? Our fearless crew discusses the best of each D&D edition, pacing RPG book releases, and so much more. Plus Chuck hates on…well, the list is too long to post here. And Trampas wants to play a kender warlord!

All of this and more on this month’s installment of the Dragonlance Canticle!

NOTE: Apologies, but we had technical difficulties with part 2 of the Women in Dragonlance discussion. Be assured that the discussion was quite intelligent, insightful, and mature. As much as we can be all of those things.

Dragonlance Canticle #63 – Women in Dragonlance (Part One)

This month, Tristan, Grace, Connie, Chuck, and Trampas discuss women in Dragonlance. As ever, there are tangents. Part one of two.

This month is also the episode where I, Tristan, say goodbye. I leave to join the Navy in a few days, and don’t know when (if ever) I will next be on the mikes. Running the Canticle has been a wonderful experience, and I will miss all of you, dear listeners.

Dragonlance Canticle #62 – More New DL Content in Dragon!

Tristan, Trampas, and Chuck discuss Dungeon Command, board games, and the two Dragonlance articles in the latest issue of Dragon magazine!

If you are a woman with a microphone and you would like to be part of the discussion for the ‘women in Dragonlance’ episode (and we hope you will!) please email us to let us know.

Feedback and show topics are the best, and can be sent to Podcast@DLnexus.com.

Episode 62 is delayed because we love you.

The March issue of Dragon Magazine has two (count ’em!) articles about Dragonlance in it. Since this is the March episode of the Canticle, we really should cover this. However, the issue was not out by recording time, so we’ve pushed recording back by a bit. The March episode will be out in the next few weeks.

Long live the lance!
