Item Details

Dragons of Hope is an official adventure module for Advanced Dungeons and Dragons 1st Edition set in the world of Krynn, home of the DragonLance saga. This 32-page vintage TSR adventure continues the DragonLance Saga.

These were wonderful adventures to run. They are great for beginning Dungeon Masters as there is a lot of guidance provided throughout the series. The DragonLance saga included 16 different adventures and accessories (and more novels than can be counted!)


From the back of the module:

The DRAGONLANCE saga continues! You have freed 800 refugees from the depths of Pax Tharkas, but now the armies of the dragon highmaster Verminaard pursue you through the wilderness. There is only one hope for you - to find the gates to Thorbardin, the ancient kingdom of the mountain dwarves, sealed long ago in the Dwarfgate War. The problem is that nobody knows where it is, or if it still exists! Through the snow-covered Kharolis Mountains, across the Dergoth Plain, haunted with the ghosts of ancient armies, and to the incredible mountain known only as Skullcap, you search for the answer that will save the refugees of Pax Tharkas...and yourself! "Dragons of Hope" is the exciting third part of the First Book of Dragonlance, an epic quest through the world of Krynn, threatened by the domination of the inhuman draconians. This adventure can be played as part of a seperate adventure, or as part of the great quest that spans the entire DRAGONLANCE story. An adventure for Character Levels 6-8


This module is Fair to Good condition. The cover is in Fair to almost good condition showing heavy wear, creasing along the fold, edgewear, scuffing, and corner rounding. All heavy. The fold of the cover has separated about 3 inches at the bottom and about an inch and a half. The maps are in great shape and it is still sturdy.

The adventure book is Good condition showing heavy wear. The pages are soft and grey with use and age. The corners are heavily rounded (some are fraying), there are a few pen marks and a number of discolored spots throughout. No writing. The staples are rusty. It is in good shape for a playing copy but not for collecting.

The player characters are included! That is truly rare. Seems like most of these are missing. I guess because it was so simple for the DM to remove the page and just hand the PCs to your players to argue over who was going to play the cleric!

Overall the module has seen a lot of use but is intact and ready to challenge another party of adventurers.

Most of my packing supplies are reused, so don't be too surprised if you have a combination of paper, airbags, and whatever else I have laying around.
