For fans of Dragonlance, here's a great article by Julie Bartel at The Hub: Thirty Years at the Inn of the Last Home: Celebrating Dragonlance.

Look for me and my content at EN World (user name: sanishiver).

I was just reading that a moment ago, and complimenting it with MerriB's wonderful review of the first DRAGONLANCE gaming module which was recently released on dndclassics.com.

It's hard to believe that thirty years have passed since those early days of gaming goodness on Krynn!

I know right? It's been a long time.

IIRC the Realms was released in 1986. Makes me think WotC will release the 5E Realms in 2016, for another 30 year anniversary.

I love Dragonlance...I have introduced so many people to fantasy gaming with that setting; but most importantly my wife fell in love with the Fellowship of the Lance and it was honestly one of the first times I ever saw her cry (and I've never seen her cry over a book since!).

I fondly remember Dragons of Despair as being my first experience with TSR's version of roleplaying games. So there's a great deal of nostalgia tied up with my remember that hot December day of coming home from the gaming store and ripping off the plastic cover from the first DL module, and then just reading away the afternoon happily day-dreaming of dragons, lost gods, fallen civilisations, and larger-than-life-heroes. Plus, all that fantastic Tracy Hickman writing crammed between the covers! And, of course, Elmore's contributions even at that early stage of DL's development.

Cool stuff.

That would be nice... considering the 20th anniversary for the Realms didn't really receive as much "celebration" as most would tend to like for a well-established gaming world.

It would be kind of cool to make my first Gen Con visit coincide with the thirtieth anniversary of the FORGOTTEN REALMS setting.

A few months ago, a coworker was getting rid of a lot of books, and gave me first pick... One of the things in there was the original printing of Leaves From the Inn of the Last Home.

Well met

Good catch, Wooly. One of the best Dragonlance products ever produced, in my eyes. I have it here still, along with More Leaves...

In case either of you, or even other fellow DL fans who weren't already aware... there was a final volume released for this series in 2007 -- entitled Lost Leaves From the Inn of the Last Home.

A lot of cool material was included in this volume, and it serves as one of the last great products released for the setting.

At this time, I'm not enough of a Dragonlance fan to seek out those books... But I thought getting a copy of the first one, for free, was pretty dang nifty.
