Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

THE AESTHETICS GUIDE TO ANSALON is a series of books compiled over two years of research into the epic series of Dragonlance novels plus Dragonlance modules from across systems and editions, ranging from the earliest AD&D material to the 3.5 updates.

These guides update all of the old material, collecting information from across sources to create the most complete collection of information possible on everything already established about the continent of Ansalon - all updated for Dungeons and Dragons 5e!

The War of the Lance is the great story of the Dragonlance setting, and this guide presents the first step on that journey. Within these pages you will find notes on some of the major factions of the setting that players may choose to alligjn themselves with - the Knights of Solamnia, the Orders of High Sorcery and the various religious orders that have existed around krynn during the Age of Despair.

You will also find notes on character creation options and suggestions for a DM planning to run a game set around the War of the Lance, and ways to weave characters into the existing story.

Also included in this book are descriptions and chronological series of events for the major storylines that played out during the Dragonlance Chronicles adventures, including - the War of the lance itself, the journey of Berem the Everman, the search for Dragonlances, the search for Dragonorbs, the path of Fizban the Fabulous, and the all out war waged by the Knight of Solamnia.

Additional to this are two options for player characters to take on roles played out in the Chronicles trilogy, those of the prophet - the first true Cleric in 300 years - and the scheming of Fistandantilus - a long dead archmage who may serve as a spellcaster's patron...

Note: Character options presented in this book, as well as character creation restrictions based on classes and races, are suggestions only intended to emulate the setting as it is presented in the novels.

THE AESTHETICS GUIDE TO ANSALON is a series of 21 books covering every location on Ansalon, plus complete guides to magic items and a Bestiary of all creatures that include in these modules. Look out for more to be released in the near future!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
