Falconer’s Note

Leaves was originally released in 1987 alongside three other sourcebooks. We sort it with the Gaming Books because it’s a large-format book that belongs on the shelf with the rest of your RPG collection. A good chunk of its content is drawn from the original DL series of adventure modules, especially DL5 Dragons of Mystery—stories and essays and maps which might be of interest to novel readers (without game stats included).

It was rounded out with other, new content, most famously the songs and recipes. You can find, as you might expect, Otik’s Spiced Fried Potatoes, but the most famous recipe has got to be Fizban’s Fireball Chili. My own copy was signed by Weis and Hickman in 2001. “Enjoy the chili,” wrote Tracy, and Margaret wrote, “Beware the chili!”

The first edition of Leaves includes “The Timeline of Krynn“ from DL14 (this was also reprinted in Dragonlance Adventures). In the 1993 second edition of Leaves, this was replaced with a completely overhauled timeline which was originally published in Tales of the Lance in 1992. The big embarrassment in the DL14 timeline was that Huma lived thousands of years before the founding of the Knights of Solamnia!

This book is a delightful addition to any collection, but I doubt any Dragonlance fan, even in 1987, has ever considered it to be “the complete Krynn source book”—more of a fun miscellany, ultimately much less immersive and fascinating than DLA or Fonstad’s grand Atlas.
