    Default Champions of Krynn

    I have just started re-playing this SSI classic, and I was thinking it would be nice to run it as an AD&D campaign. I did it about 10 years ago, and it was a blast! Unfortunately I have lost all the notes since :(
    Did anyone do something like this who would share their notes, ideas, maps etc?

    Thanks!

    WOW! I found the clue books and manuals on replacementdocs.com

    I also found the clue books for Death Knights of Krynn.

    I guess a full campaign can be launched from these!

    Man, I think Death Knights of Krynn is the one I played. These are the gold box ones, right, or am I on crack? I got stuck at the lighthouse. Did everything I could (or thought I could) without that piece of the puzzle solved and never got further. :( Couldn't find any clues either.

    Are you sure you're note talking about the lighthouse in Dark Queen of Krynn? I seem to recall someone asking about that same part. basically, the dying woman you find on the top floor tells you the clue. go to the bottom floor. there's a "spinner" that spins you in the opposite direction that you enter. you'd find the spot "under the front door" which teleports you to where you want to go.

    They are available for free and legally! Go to www.the-underdogs.info and do a search.

    Hmmm...are you running the game under an emulator or directly under Windows?
    I tried it with dosbox and it works very well.

    I guess Weldon is right, you are referring to Dark Queen of Krynn.

    Except for the Taladas references, IMO it is the weakest of the three episodes. Too high level for a Dragonlance adventure.
