On this page, we've put together some helpful utilities to assist both players and DMs running games in the Dragonlance setting.
Weather, Moon Tracking, and Calendars
The weather and the calendar are items of significant importance to virtually everyone: from clerical holy days to choosing the right terrain before battle in a torrential downpour, these utilities will help players and DMs model the Dragonlance world more accurately. In addition, if you're playing in a Dragonlance setting, the positions of Krynn's moons are of vital importance to the Wizards of High Sorcery.
Get the weather forecast for today from a variety of different locations around Ansalon with the Nexus' weather forecasting tool. Detailed daily forecasts for most of Ansalon's major cities, and predictive forecasts for the next seven days.
The Nexus maintains positions for the various moons that are updated on a daily basis. Don't want to bother with tracking your own moon positions? Get their positions today and for the rest of the week here.
Moons of Krynn: Moon Tracking Chart, by Matt
Matt's moon tracking chart is based on material published in the Dragonlance Adventures sourcebook, pages 27 and 28, first published by TSR in 1987. It also features a Taladan moon chart adapted from Time of the Dragon box set. A perfect reference if you don't have a computer handy while you're running your game.
Moon Tracker for Dragonlance, by Robert Madsen
The Moon Tracker for Dragonlance is a freeware program that allows Dungeon Masters or anyone in a Dragonlance campaign to easily track the position of Krynn's three moons of magic—Solinari, Lunitari and Nuitari—across the sky. Moon Tracker has been tested under Windows 95, 98, and NT, and the program ran flawlessly in an unscientific test conducted by one of our staff members under Windows XP. Of course, as is the case with all software, we disclaim any liability for lost or corrupted data that results from your use of this program. More information is available in the read me file, which is included in the 112 KB download.
