They tried to cook Han Solo! And they had a dress that conveniently fit Leia, which could have been from a past victim.
I just needed a bit more in the movie. Maybe a scene of storm trooper being carved for dinner in the background at the celebration at the end.

Damnit, Morrissey!
Hmmm...I think those are the Afflicted Kender...all dark and gloomy and gothy. After Malys wiped out their homeland, there were several Kender who had their girlfriends in a coma and all. That damned dragon and her Bigmouth strikes again...


Well, there is more to Dragonlance than just the terrible joke races. Whether that other stuff is enough for people, I dunno.
The more I see you guys discuss it, the more it feels like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole when it comes to fitting Dragonlance within 5e... and I wonder if they can do it in a way that would satisfy Dragonlance fans while not turning off new fans of 5e...

And not stepping onto some ablist landmine along the way...
