Dragons of Glory is a 24-page sourcebook for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 1st edition released in February 1986.

Official synopsis[]

Across the world of Krynn, the armies of light and darkness clash in titanic struggle. Now the vast forces of the High Solamnic Knights and the Dragon Highlords are yours to command. "Dragons of Glory" puts you and your players in charge of all the armies of Krynn.

In excerpts from his war journals, Lord Gunthar Uth Wistan, Commander of the Solamnic Knights, discusses the general course of the war and several major battles of the time. Each battle discussion ends with the set up and victory conditions that will enable you to control the course of the War of the Lance.

"Dragons of Glory" is a complete strategic simulation game requiring no other rules to play. Yet is also an invaluable tool for the gamemaster as it can add more excitement to Dragonlance campaigns.

"Dragons of Glory" includes a huge, full-color map of the continent of Ansalon, nearly 400 counters representing both the Whitestone and the Dragon Highlord forces, a 16-page scenario book with Gunthar's memoirs, and an eight-page rules book.

A strategic game supplement to the Dragonlance series!
