D&D 5E Tracy & Laura Hickman Announce Skyraiders of Abarax

Tracy and Laura Hickman, known for the Dragonlance setting and the original Ravenloft module, have announced a D&D 5E setting called Skyraiders of Abarax. It will be coming to Kickstarter this fall. There's not much more information yet, other than a mailing list for updates and a single (stunning) art piece.

Their Facebook page actually says "AD&D 5E", rather than "D&D 5E", although I'm not sure whether that's significant.

"Tracy & Laura Hickman's first adventure world since Dragonlance ... coming to AD&D 5E through Kickstarter this fall! Join us in the creation of Sky-high Fantasy discovered through magical books brought to life our unique 'Living Tome System'."

There's also a couple of other art pieces floating about on social media.

Any news on the new Dragonlance novel? A release date of July floated around for some time, but obviously it didn't happen.

That artwork is indeed stunning.

I suppose "Tracy & Laura Hickman's first adventure world since Dragonlance" is technically correct (the best kind of correct!) since they came up with the original concept, but the actual setting that resulted was a TSR group project.

Looks like this is an adventure and not just a setting.

Lots of people hate on the Dragonlance modules for being railroads but DL1 is a great example of "here is my setting play in it". No need to read a 100 pages of backstory and geography just enough to get you excited and set you lose.

I think the two enworld adventure paths did the same things.

Looks good, the art is real pretty and I'm a sucker for flying ships and the like.

I do wish they went a little more out-there with their ancestries though. Cat-people, Dragon-ish people, small humans and elves-proxy are a D&D staple, I know, but I sure wish more settings tried something new.

I'll probably end up backing this one or the new kickstarter I saw in this week round-up on Enworld about the vampire pirates in spaaaace. Or both, depending on the money.
 


AD&D 5th / Living Tome System? This sounds like a pack of added rules, but still compatible with "our" 5th Ed.

Maybe we are seing the birth of one of the most popular 3PP settings.

That’s actually incorrect. They had Sovereign Stone back in the 3E days.

<EDIT>. Whoops! My bad - Elmore created Sovereign Stone, they wrote the novels for the game!
