The great dragon overlords threaten to enslave Krynn.
The great dragon overlords threaten to enslave Krynn. They've magically altered the land, sculpting domains to suit their foul moods, and now they have started to amass armies of dragons, humanoids, and spawn. Even the once-proud Knights of Takhisis are joining the ranks and preparing to strike against the citizens of Ansalon. This is Krynn's darkest hour. But a handful of humans rufuses to surrender. Spurred on by the famed sorcerer Palin Majere, and armed with an ancient dragonlance, they dare to stand up to the overlords. It may be their last act of courage.
(From the back cover)
Once fertile lands are now desert, temerate islands are locked in ice, and cool forests became murky swamps as the evil dragon overlords bend the very bones of the world to their will. Dark Knights, draconians, and newer, fouler monsters are flocking to join the armies of darkness. As despair descends on all the lands, only one band of heroes stands a chance of preventing the Age of Mortals from becoming and age of slavery and death.
