The Fifth Age of Krynn—known as the Age of Mortals—has been a turbulent time for the world of Krynn. The gods who watched the world were absent for decades¸ mighty dragon overlords warred and conquered vast territories¸ and old magic had to be learned to replace the new. An epic War of Souls had to be fought to restore some of what was lost-ushering in a new and exciting era¸ full of possibilities for both good and evil.
The Age of Mortals campaign book is designed as a companion volume to the Dragonlance Campaign Setting published by Wizards of the Coast. Designed and written by the same design team (under the guidance of author Margaret Weis)¸ this volume gives players everything they need to play in any Fifth Age campaign-including during and after the War of Souls itself.
Age of Mortals contains an update on the races of Ansalon¸ many new prestige classes¸ feats¸ equipment¸ magical items¸ and spells. It details many important potential adventuring locations in great detail¸ as well as mighty dragons and many important characters of the era.
