Dragons of Autumn is a 176-page sourcebook for Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 released in August 2006.

Official synopsis[]

Dragonlance® War of the Lance Campaign, Volume One

Autumn settles on the plains of Abanasinia as rumors of war and strange creatures travel from northern lands. Friends meet in the tree-town of Solace after many years spent apart, hoping to reminisce about old times and adventures past. But the people of Ansalon need heroes, as the ancient gods have returned to the world, and brought creatures of myth and legend to fight in their battles. Dragons-ancient, deadly, and powerful-have returned to Krynn. An adventure like no other calls the heroes to re-discover the greatest gift given to the mortal races, to find a safe haven for hundreds of desperate refugees, and unearth the first secrets that might lead to the power of the dragonlance.

Dragons of Autumn is a Dragonlance® adventure for the d20 System set in the War of the Lance era. It can be played as the starting point of a new campaign or continue adventures set in the Age of Despair.

The adventure is designed for characters of 5th-7th level and requires the use of the War of the Lance sourcebook from Sovereign Press, the Dragonlance Campaign Setting, and d20 System core rulebooks from Wizards of the Coast.

This adventure product is a new presentation of the classic Dragonlance adventures first published over twenty years ago. The text incorporates two decades of information and updates from Dragonlance novels and games, including Dragons of Autumn Twilight and Dragons of the Dwarven Depths written by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman.
