I'm thinking of running a game using the Dragonlance setting (Krynn) but, at the same time, using the 5th edition system.

Has any material been published that includes information on Dragonlance in 5e?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Just FYI, I've run DL modules in 5e just converting on the fly--two minutes' puzzling through tHAC0 and ACs, then you're off to the races! Feel free to ping me in Role-playing Games Chat if you want to hear any more. \$\endgroup\$

Yes, but it’s really limited.

I believe the DMG mentions it (I don’t have mine handy to check).

The ‘splat’ books like Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide have a section on adapting backgrounds and class archetypes to Dragonlance. In that particular book, it's on page 155, "Appendix: Class Options in Other Worlds".

Each of the hardback adventures that I have read have a few paragraphs about dropping them into DL.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes also mentions things about several races in different worlds/settings, including Dragonlance/Krynn. There are two or three brief mentions in Ch. 2: Elves, a subsection on dwarves in Ch. 3: Dwarves and Duergar, and a paragraph on kender and a sidebar on tinker gnomes in Ch. 5: Halflings and Gnomes. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Also, the DMG has a few scattered mentions of Dragonlance/Krynn, twice under the list of forms of government and once under the list of Known Worlds of the Material Plane. It's also mentioned twice in the description of the orb of dragonkind: dndbeyond.com/magic-items/orb-of-dragonkind \$\endgroup\$

In 2022, WotC released a Heroes of Krynn UA. An official Dragonlance adventure was released later in the same year: Shadow of the Dragon Queen. The book also contains the Kender race, as well as the Lunar subclass for Sorcerers.
