You stand on the road east of Solace, tired from five years of adventuring, from a fruitless search for lost clerical magic. You know the old proverb that claims "You must return to find what you left to seek," but the saying never really made sense. Soon, however, it will.

For the world of Krynn is not the same: refugees stream out of the northernmost Human lands, telling horrible tales. An invading army has burned their villages and put their families and friends to the sword. Among these stories you hear even darker rumors - that older evils, the Dragons themselves, have returned to the world, for new and more terrible purposes.

Dragons of Despair is the first in TSR's new series of DRAGONLANCE TM adventures for use with the ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS® game system. Your players will adventure in the world of Krynn, visit strange places such as Haven or ruined Xak Tsaroth, and encounter the bizarre Draconians and Spectral Minions. They can play the modules as a set of separate adventures or as a great quest that spans the entire DRAGONLANCETM story.
