Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

The Dragonlance Chronicles (1984) is an American fantasy trilogy written by Tracy Hickman and Margaret Weis, who created and developed the world of Krynn (the secondary world of Dragonlance) with the help of a live role-playing session. After the success of the first trilogy of this shared world more and more authors joined the creators to build up one of the most popular fantasy series. The books serve, though, not just the purpose of reading materials for fantasy fans; learning about the origins of the series groups of role-players chose the world of Krynn as the setting of their playing sessions and the heroes of Dragonlance as characters. This project report tries to find the answer to what makes the world and the characters of DL ideal for live role-playing.
