Saw this in the D&D movie poll, and I didn't want to clutter that thread up with tangents, but what's this about? Other than the fact that one of the authors, Tracy Hickman is a Mormon, I've never seen any correllations between Dragonlance and Mormonism, even to the extent that Lord of the Rings weakly correllates to Catholicism.Faraer said:Dragonlance would also be problematic because it's *so* Tolkienesque (except based on Mormonism instead of Roman Catholicism). A good but inauthentic D&D film might be good commercially for D&D, but it would be damaging to the secondary worlds themselves.
And I should know; I'm a Mormon too...
Anyway, just wondering where this sentiment comes from; what specifically is the supposed Mormon basis for Dragonlance?
