Wizards discusses things in the new adventure helping you run a Dragon War.

Especially the dragons, lots of dragons, from Draconians to things like the Dragonelle and eventually true Dragons.

They bring up Aowen fighting the witch king as what they are going for in the war combats. Zooming in to what the players are doing, though increasingly dangerously, random war events will intrude.

They then discussed the board game, a partner project, a standalone board game with it's own campaign.

It is as if they were sending a message to Paramount Pictures about Dragonlance as their ultimate cash-cow. After the action-live movie we shouldn't be surprised with other action-live production set in Dragonlance, but not with the companions of the lance yet.

I'm really beginning to wonder if the Draconian and Dragonnel stats are going to be repeated in the adventure or if you'll have to have Fizban's. Either way would be a bit of rankle, the main reason I had any interest in Fizbans was because of the Draconian stats, after all.

They're more than likely going to reprint any relevant stat blocks in the module that needs them. Hopefully they update them to more closely match the originals.

I honestly get the feeling that Critical Role is D&D's primary media juggernaut, even if they aren't a part of Hasbro to my knowledge. It's subjective, but I've encountered a lot more D&D newbies acquainted with Jester and the downfall of Tiberius than Tanis and Lord Soth. Dragonlance fans are closer to Greyhawk fans in already being involved in the fandom. Additionally the last DL book published before Dragons of Deceit was nearly 10 years ago. Dragonlance can get big again, but it's been stalling for quite some time so will need a hell of a boost.

Luis speculates about tons of potential cross over, and multimedia things. It's pretty much their thing.
 



It is true me talking about potential crossovers, but Hasbro has made a lot of money with the licencec products, and we can bet Hasbro wants D&D to be a multimedia franchise, or a "lifestyle brand".

We have to accept this is going to be a rebooted version. And not only to add characters from different origins, but also to add more new creatures.

Other details will be retconnected in the name of the political correction, for example:

- The gullys can't count more three.

- We can!, but the numbers in dwarf languange because we have forgotten them in common chat.
