DL-series collectible miniature editions
Dragons of Despair (DL1)
Unlike most subsequent modules in the DL series, Dragons of Despair has no fold-out poster map. However, the 3rd panel of the cover folder is a detachable color map of the region ("Wilderness Map").
"You stand on the road east of Solace, tired from five years of adventuring, from a fruitless search for lost clerical magic. You know the old proverb that claims 'You must return to find what you left to seek,' but the saying never really made sense. Soon, however, it will.
For the world of Krynn is not the same: Refugees stream out of the northernmost human lands, telling horrible tales. An invading army has burned their villages and put their family and friends to the sword. Among these stories you hear even darker rumors - that older evils, the dragons themselves, have returned to the world, for new and more terrible purposes.
'Dragons of Despair' is the first in TSR's new series of DRAGONLANCE adventures for use with the ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game system. Your players will adventure in the world of Krynn, visit strange places such as Haven or ruined Xak Tsaroth, and encounter the bizarre draconians and spectral minions. They can play the modules as a set of seperate adventures or as a great quest that spans the entire DRAGONLANCE story."
"The DL series was a huge leap forward for TSR -- these modules featured a new emphasis on drama and storytelling that made the gaming MUCH more fun and involved for the PCs and the DM. Of course, at heart, being TSR modules from the 80s, they're still dungeon crawls! In this chapter, the heroes must come to grips with a grim new world where dragons no longer exist, gold is worthless, and the gods themselves have forsaken mortals, and clerics are powerless... a classic of dark adventure for levels 4-6." ...from Amazon reviewer "darkseraphim"

Dragons of Flame (DL2)
Despite the 9132XXX0701 code on the "The Lands of Abanasynia" fold-out map, DL2 has no map, and that map properly belongs to DL3.
The "player's side" of the cover's third panel has a color regional map labeled "Elven Mosaic Area Map."
"The dragonmen have taken Solace. Its beautiful tree houses lie black and battered amid the stumps of great vallenwood trees. Kapak Draconians, armed with poisoned weapons, enforce a brutal martial law on the survivors.
And Solace is only one outpost: The dragonarmies control the plains. Only the elven kingdom of Qualinesti stands unconquered. The rest of the plainsmen suffer the most: A long slave caravan hauls hundreds of them to the fortress prison of Pax Tharkas.
'Dragons of Flame' is the second in TSR's new series of DRAGONLANCE adventures for use with the ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game system. Your players will adventure in the world of Krynn and visit strange places such as Qualinost or the Sla-Mori, encountering bizarre draconians and disgusting Aghar. They can play the module as a set of seperate adventures or as a great quest that spans the entire DRAGONLANCE story."

Dragons of Hope (DL3)
"You have freed 800 refugees from the depths of Pax Tharkas, but now the armies of the dragon Highmaster Verminaard pursue you through the wilderness.
There is only one hope for you -- to find the gates to Thorbardin, the ancient kingdom of the mountain dwarves, sealed long ago in the Dwarfgate War. The problem is that nobody knows where it is, or if it still exists!
Through the snow-covered Kharolis Mountains, across the Dergoth Plain, haunted with the ghosts of ancient armies, and to the incredible mountain known only as Skullcap, you search for the answer that will save the refugees of Pax Tharkas...and yourself!
'Dragons of Hope' is the exciting third part of the First Book of Dragonlance, and epic quest through the world of Krynn, threatened by the domination of the inhuman draconians.

There is only one way to safety: Find the doors of the ancient dwarven kingdom of Thorbardin, and persuade the rulers to let the refugees pass.
What price will the dwarven thanes ask? Can you succeed in your mission before the draconians destroy the hidden camp of the refugees?
'Dragons of Desolation' is the fourth DRAGONLANCE adventure for use with the ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game system, and concludes the First Book of Dragonlance. You can play this adventure by itself, or as part of the grand quest that spans the entire DRAGONLANCE story."

"The refugees from Pax Tharkas are safe in the dwarven kingdom of Thorbardin. You are in the ancient port of Tarsis searching for ships to bear them out of the dragonarmy's reach.
But nothing in silent Tarsis is as you expected. The sea receded in the Cataclysm; no ship will ever set sail from Tarsis again. Draconians openly roam the deserted city streets.
A new quest is before you: To find one of the legendary Dragon Orbs, mighty weapons that destroyed the dragons in ancient times.

Dragons of Light (DL7)
"Far removed from the battlefields of Ansalon, the island of Ergoth has become a refuge for the Elven Peoples. Here the haughty Silvanesti of the east, the friendly Qualinesti of the west, and the wild, native Kagonesti dwell in a fragile, uneasy peace.
This peace is shattered by the arrival of your band of adventurers, bearing the shards of the dragonlance and the power of the Dragon Orb of Icewall. Will the pitfalls of conflicting elven nations ensnare you? Can you escape across the wilds of Ergoth to the outpost of the Solamnic Knights, evading the wild elves in your path?

Dragons of War (DL8)
"The tower of the High Clerist pierces the cold sky. The chill wind blows snowy swirls across Solamnic Knights huddled on the battlements. This is their last stand.
Behind the pass they guard sits the gleaming city of Palanthus. The war will be lost if the city falls to the Dragonarmy.
All eyes strain south across the rolling plains of Solamnia. The Knights hear the distant thunder of a vast horde on the march. An enemy line more than a thousand strong is sighted moving toward the tower.

Yet now the Silvanesti elves are gone. For long years, their warriors stood against the hordes of the Dragonarmy. Then, suddenly, they fled their wondrous land and journeyed into the west. Something more terrible than dragons caused the fall of the Eternal Kingdom.

Yet hidden knowledge has come to light. The world is doomed unless a fearless band of heroes can pass through the lands of the evil empire into its very heart -- the City of Neraka and the Temple of the Queen of Darkness.
Yet there are other forces at work in the lands of evil, forces unknown to the Dragon Empire and the Whitestone Council.
