Dragon Knight is a 64-page sourcebook for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition released in October 1990.

Official synopsis[]

Someone or something is killing the Othlorx ('The Uninvolved') dragons of Taladas. Not only good dragons, but evil ones as well. Who or what would be so angered at these dragons as to slaughter them indiscriminately? To find out, The PCs must masquerade as dragon hunters and set out to destroy dragons. It's a dangerous game—if the dragons don't get you, your employers might!

This quest will take the heroes from the alleys of rundown Gridmire through the entire Southern Steamwall region of Taladas and eventually to the Astral plane. The poisonous vapors of the Indanalis Sea have wreaked havoc with the inhabitants of this region so be prepared to meet anything!

This AD&D adventure, set in the world of the Dragonlance saga, is the second of an epic trilogy that begins in the previously unknown continent of Taladas and ranges out to the Astral plane. The players assume the roles of dragon hunters to discover the identity of the "master" behind the plan to wipe out the Othlorx dragons of Taladas.
