I read the books when I was much younger.

Much as I hate to admit it, I'd be very interested in checking this out. I loved the books as a kid and I still get a kick out of them now.
Without Dragonlance, I wouldn't even be playing D&D.
On a side note, here's a fun Ryon fact - I was so into Dragonlance back in the day that I couldn't even make it through a Drizzt book. I thought that Tanis would rock that ebony-skinned wuss from here until Doomsday.

I got to see a short preview of this running at Gen Con. I will definately be picking this up.
I was hugely into Dragonlance back in the day. I have read alot of the Dragonlance novels, some good, some bad. But the Chronicles Trilogy is the only one that I have gone back to and re-read. It still holds up. I still have my original copies with the Elmore covers, although they are not in as great shape anymore.
And Raistlin would totally wipe the floor with Elminster.
