Dragons of Hope is a 32-page sourcebook for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 1st edition released in September 1984.

Official synopsis[]

The Dragonlance saga continues!

You have freed 800 refugees from the depths of Pax Tharkas, but now the armies of the dragon highmaster Verminaard pursue you through the wilderness. There is only one hope for you: Find the gates to Thorbardin, the ancient kingdom of the mountain dwarves, sealed long ago in the Dwarfgate War. The problem is that nobody knows where it is, or if it still exists!

Through the snow-covered Kharolis Mountains, across the Dergoth Plain, haunted by the ghosts of ancient armies, and to the incredible mountain known as Skullcap, you search for the answer that will save the refugees of Pax Tharkas—and yourself!

"Dragons of Hope" is the exciting third part of the First Book of Dragonlance, an epic quest through the world of Krynn, threatened by the domination of the inhuman draconians. This adventure can be played as part of a separate adventure, or as part of the great quest that spans the entire Dragonlance story.

An adventure for characters level 6th-8th. Written by Tracy Hickman.
