Across the world of Krynn, the armies of light and darkness clash in titanic struggle. Now the vast forces of the High Solamnic Knights and the Dragon Highlords are yours to command. "Dragons of Glory" puts you and your players in charge of all the armies of Krynn. In excerpts from his war journals, Lord Gunthar Uth Wistan, Commander of the Solamnic Knights, discusses the general course of the war and several major battles of the time. Each battle discussion ends with the set up and victory conditions that will enable you to control the course of the War of the Lance.

Plot Summary[edit]

Dragons of Glory is both a sourcebook and a strategic-level war based board-game. The game is set during a war between two factions: the draconians and the defenders of Krynn. The set describes the war and the opposing armies, using Battlesystem statistics for both sides. Dragons of Glory is a simulation game, designed to allow players to produce their own historical timeline of the events in the world of Krynn for an ongoing Dragonlance campaign. By keeping a record of forces' positions over time, news can be related to the player characters, who can encounter various armies, creatures, or leaders at appropriate points

Publication History[edit]

DL11 Dragons of Glory was written by Douglas Niles and Tracy Hickman, with cover art by Jeff Easley and interior illustrations by Diana Magnuson and Jeff Butler. It was published by TSR in 1986 as a sixteen-page pamphlet, an eight-page pamphlet, two large color maps, a cardboard counter sheet, a small zip-locked bag, and a double-thick outer folder. Niles and Hickman revealed in Dragon No. 107 (March 1986) that in the product, some details affecting combat were dispensed with for ease of play. The article in Dragon provided advanced and optional rules for the Dragons of Glory simulation game, some of which complement the standard rules, while others replace some of them. Three new scenarios were also included in the article.
