The Legendary War Has Begun
The Dragon Queen Takhisis—known as Tiamat on other worlds—was banished from Krynn over a thousand years ago.
Summoning forth the infamous death knight Lord Soth and vast Dragon Armies to fight for her dominion, she has finally set her plot to return into motion.
In the War of the Lance, no choice is easy and the actions of heroes can have world-altering consequences.
