Dragons of Despair - Dragonlance [AD&D]
"You stand on the road east of Solace, tired from five years of adventuring, from a fruitless search for lost clerical magic. You know the old proverb that claims "You must return to find what you left to seek," but the saying never really made sense. Soon, however, it will.
For the world of Krynn is not the same: refugees stream out of the northernmost human lands, telling horrible tales. An invading army has burned their villages and put their families and friends to the sword. Among these stories you hear even darker rumors-that older evils, the dragons themselves, have returned to the world, for new and more terrible purposes."
"Dragon of Despair" is the first in TSR's series of Dragonlance adventures for use with the AD&D game system. Your players will adventure in the world of Krynn, visit strange places such as Haven or ruined Xak Tsaroth, and encounter the bizarre draconians and spectral minions. They can play the modules as a set of separate adventures or as a great quest that spans the entire Dragonlance story.
‣ What will we do?
We will play using the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 1st Edition rules. Tired of hearing old players say "I was there when THAC0 was a thing"? Now is your time to experience this edition. We will play the official Dragonlance Adventure, so please, avoid joining if you read the books already and know the story (unless you forgot about it, them please join!).
‣ What is needed?
- A set of AD&D Characters will be provided to pick up from. These are the official characters that do appear in the books.
- Dice if you have them.
- Snacks and beverages for yourself or to share.
- Some degree of responsibility! Our meetup main goal is to enjoy the hobby that we all love. We don't and never will ask for any money or remuneration, all we ask is to respect everybody else at the table.
- Understanding that while I'm somehow experienced in this edition, there are dozens of rulebooks, knowing all of them to the detail is close to imposible, I expect the players to learn their characters capabilities!
