DLE2 Dragon Magic is a 64-page sourcebook for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition released in July 1989.

Spoiler alert: The following article contains spoilers for an adventure module.

Official synopsis[]

The Moons of Krynn are fading. The alignment forces of Good, Evil, and Neutrality are locked in conflict... and evil seems to be winning! The unnatural machinations of the treacherous Khardra—daughter of Takhisis herself!—have led to a crisis of cosmic proportions.

The Heroes journey to the Cloud City Cirulon, heart of the Good Dragon races, there to meet the Astral Dragon himself. The nature of a plague claiming the lives of silver dragonhood is revealed, and the cure is presented to the companions. But the road to success is fraught with peril, the only route leading through a secret portal. If this portal becomes known to the forces of evil, disaster will surely result.

This AD&D® adventure, set in the world of the DRAGONLANCE® saga, follows DLE1 — In Search of Dragons. Some burning questions are answered but more are raised. And as the players investigate, the knowledge they gain seems to point more and more to a sinister thereat of evil undreamed of since the War of the Lance.

Content[]

The adventure module is advertised as compatible with both AD&D 1st edition and AD&D 2nd edition. It includes monster statistics for the eyewing, kani doll, and kodragon.
