|#2zombiegleemaxMay 05, 2004 2:09:22||Yeah, I saw that! It's exciting!! :D|
If this trilogy is half as good as The Kingpriest Trilogy, I'm sold already ;)
|#3sweetmeatsMay 05, 2004 8:10:37||Thats great! I'm guessing it will be 5th age. It will be interesting to see what Taladas looks like these days in both novel and game formats.|
|#4zombiegleemaxMay 05, 2004 8:18:22||If it looks good I will pick it up.|

I'm anxious to see the gaming product(s), myself. I hope that James O'Rance's Taladas work will be an influence.
|#6zombiegleemaxMay 05, 2004 10:11:02||Sweet. :bounce: |
I was really surpised. Till now I thought that any plans related to Taladas got deep sixed awhile back. Glad to see that changed.
|#7talinthasMay 05, 2004 10:42:35||Pierson has a knack for deveopling cultures incredibly well. Every novel he's done so far has fleshed out details of dragonlance like nothing else has. Just look at his descriptions of xak tsaroth or kendermore, or the absolutly amazing city of losarcum. I wouldn't trust anyone else to do a modern day version of thenol and hitehkel and stuff =)|
i can't wait =)
|#8NivedMay 05, 2004 11:06:11||I've been really curious as to how the folks on the other end of the world have been dealing with the absence and return on the gods... since all the important events seem to take place away from them.|
|#9sweetmeatsMay 05, 2004 12:14:04||I wonder if Taladas has Overlords? I think its big enough to support 3 or 4 of them, without it seeming over done. I can also imagine that the Hithekel has healed over (cooled) like a huge scab in the earth.|
I think Taladas will be a great setting in the 5th age.
|#10brimstoneMay 05, 2004 12:32:35||Didn't James' write up have have a Dragon Overlord? And it was a dracolich, right? It's been a while since I looked at that stuff.|

|#12zombiegleemaxMay 05, 2004 20:04:25||Insight into the league of minotaurs would be cool, as a contrast to their more militaristic cousins. Bring on the Disir I say, and the Yaggol (sorry, just love them so much, have to mention them every possible post)|
|#13zombiegleemaxMay 05, 2004 21:28:41||I can't say enough how thrilled I am at this news - Taladas is my favourite Dragonlance setting, and this has just made my day!:D |
I'll be especially hoping that the gaming product deals with the Mischta and N'zunta high ogres, and how the last 50 years or so has affected the Spine of Taladas and Watermere.
|#14iltharanosMay 05, 2004 21:32:43||I'd be interested in whether they cover the Yaggol or not ... as well as the racial stats for the Elf Clans, Cha'asii, the Scorned, the Fianawar, etc.|
|#15dragontoothMay 05, 2004 21:51:50||I wonder if the 2nd Cataclism effected the Big lava area? If it finally cooled, that would be cool.|

James O'Rance created the best taladas resource anywhere. he went and extrapolated into the winter of chaos and the fifth age. its completely worth reading.

|#18NivedMay 05, 2004 23:13:40||I hadn't thought about that... hrmmmmmm, Frost Dragons, Frost Wights... methinks Soverign may have either been planning ahead for this Winter of Chaos or they had inside info on this Trilogy.|
|#19talinthasMay 05, 2004 23:30:36||heh. i'd think so too, if frost wights and frost dragons hadn't been around since the earliest days of SAGA. a lot of SAGA stuff came from taladas, but not those.|
|#20NivedMay 05, 2004 23:33:20||Ah, well then, see I didn't follow the Saga game material, too bad, because like now I look a foo.|
|#21zombiegleemaxMay 05, 2004 23:51:33||I wonder how the Taladians feel about the rest of Krynn's inhabitants. I mean, it wasn't some fool cleric on Taladas that stirred the ire of the gods by trying to eradicate evil, and ascend himself. No one on Taladas was given the chance to stop this impending doom, just some knight who couldn't swallow his pride. So, after the centre of their land is turned to molten goo, some deranged irda decides to unleash Chaos and all his little beasties upon the world. People of Taladas must be thinking "WTF, what did we do. We're the good continent. Give us a break"|
|#22talinthasMay 06, 2004 0:40:19||see, the way i figure it is that just as the kingpriest was too good, the aurim empire was a decadent center of evil. but then again, in my version of the story, gilean tosses the rock to reset the world, and paladine throws his lance at it, to prevent the giant boulder from completely destroying krynn, leading to the giant taladas strike and the fragments on ansalon.|
|#23quentingeorgeMay 06, 2004 2:03:14||I mean, it wasn't some fool cleric on Taladas that stirred the ire of the gods by trying to eradicate evil, and ascend himself. |
IIRC There was an Irda leader from somewhere near Taladas who, at the same time the Kingpriest made his demands, also forsook the gods.

Yes. Although the gray dragons they once were aren't, but we've already gone over that.
