I give Dragonlance a lot of grief — deservedly so, I think — for the role it played in forever changing both Dungeons & Dragons and the way it’s been sold, but Dragonlance was merely expanding on ideas first put forward in earlier modules penned by Tracy Hickman, particularly 1983’s Ravenloft. Unlike the Dragonlance modules, which, even at the time, I liked more in theory than in practice, I used to love Ravenloft. It’s easy to understand why. Module I6 is a very “moody” piece of work, unlike most previous AD&D modules, which achieved their moods much more haphazardly or at least less self-consciously. Ravenloft’s evocation of Gothic horror was also unlike most other modules at the time and, given my relative unfamiliarity with that genre of fiction — I’d not yet read Dracula in 1983 — I found it all very compelling.
