Enter the spell-binding world of the Dragonlance Saga with this volume of beautifully rendered maps. Accompany the Heroes of the Lance on their epic travels across Krynn in this magnificently illustrated volume. Become hopelessly lost in the thirty-five levels of Mount Nevermind. It was published in October About the Name. Ah, branding. The Atlas of the Dragonlance World shows how TSR was religious in putting their Dragonlance brand front and forward, so much so that this Atlas didn't even use the name of the world in its title!
Over the years that followed, there would be more than a half-dozen "Krynn" books, and even a few "Ansalon" books; the term Dragonlance would come to refer to either the game itself or the original set of adventures.
Origins I : The Atlases. Each of these was a beautifully illustrated book that featured not just maps of those lands but also attractive drawings of the many places visited in the related novels.
Tracy Hickman had actually seen and been impressed by The Atlas of Middle-earth prior to joining TSR, so he was thrilled to learn that Fonstad would be creating a similar Atlas for Krynn. Like Fonstad's earlier atlases, this new one focused largely on the novels of the world and the places visited therein. It was probably intended to push the successful Dragonlance saga further into mass-market book stores.
The Atlas of the Dragonlance World was part of a series of mass-market books that TSR published for the setting in , building on the success of the Dragonlance Chronicles and Dragonlance Legends novels. The Atlas of the Dragonlance World was even more complementary to the sole Dragonlance roleplaying release for the year: Dragonlance Adventures , published in September.
TSR's first large-scale sourcebook for Krynn had contained a minimum of maps. Fortunately GMs and players wanting more had to wait just a month for the release of this Atlas. Origins IV : The Maps. There had already been several large-scale maps for the worlds of Krynn. An even bigger game-board map appeared in DL "Dragons of Glory" Finally, DL "Dragons of Triumph" debuted maps of both pre-cataclysm and post-war Ansalon, which were expanded in Dragonlance Adventures. There were also smaller maps throughout the original Dragonlance Chronicles adventures that depicted local areas and various dungeons, cities, and towers.
However, there was still a lot of Krynn to cover — and the Atlas also offered the opportunity to consolidate all of those sources. Expanding Krynn.
There's technically nothing new in the Atlas , but it does combine material from all of the sources on Krynn and also debuts maps for locations that had previously been described textually. The Atlas also gives some very abstract attention to planar realms like the Abyss and the Celestial Realm.
Finally it depicts the "pathways" of the Dragonlance Chronicles and Legends series. The historic scope of the Atlas is also notable, as it regularly covers both pre- and post-cataclysmic eras. The "pathways" of the novels detail , , and , plus the Cataclysm and the Dwarfgate Wars that were were depicted in Dragonlance Legends. The list of sources that Fonstad used to create this book is rather impressive, given that Dragonlance was just three years old.
It includes the original 14 adventures , the original six novels , , two short story anthologies , two solo gamebooks , , a handful of Dragon articles , a calendar , and a number of interviews, personal letters, and unpublished manuscripts.
At least 30 of those sources were published, showing how Dragonlance was waxing in the mid '80s. Future History.

Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching.
However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable.
The Atlas of the Dragonlance World
A map of Ansalon. Please click for a much, much larger version. The resulting explosion tore Ansalon apart, created new seas and causing untold destruction. This event, the Cataclysm, wiped out much of the population and destroyed Istar and weakened its great western rivals, Ergoth and Solamnia. In the wake of the Cataclysm, the gods turned their back on Krynn and would no longer heed the prayers of their faithful. Unbeknown to the other gods, these events had been engineered by Takhisis, the five-headed dragon goddess, to permit her return to Krynn, which she wished to rule over alone.
