Autumn settles on the plains of Abanasinia as rumors of war and strange creatures travel from the northern lands. Friends meet in the tree-town of Solace after many years spent apart, hoping to reminisce about old times and adventures past. But the people of Ansalon need heroes, as the ancient gods have returned to the world, and brought creatures of myth and legend to fight in their battles. Dragons- ancient, deadly, and powerful- have returned to Krynn. An adventure like no other calls the heroes to rediscover the greatest gift given to the mortal races, to find a safe haven for hundreds of desperate refugees, and unearth the first secrets that might lead to the power of the Dragonlance.
