Reviews - What do customers think about Dragonlance Knightly Orders of Ansalon (Dragonlance Sourcebooks)?
More than a fighter... Jul 30, 2007
This book is a great resource for anyone wishing to enhance their fighter in the world of Krynn. It gives a nice set of options for making knights, either dark, or Solamnic as well as Steel Legion and various others. Knightly Orders also provides an array of options in feats and customizations that will make any fighter or fighter-type better in battle and able to hold his own against the challenges thrown against him.
Good book for create Dragonlance Campaign May 12, 2007

Very Good Sourcebook Jan 4, 2007
This is a damn good sourcebook if you wish to play one of the three Knightly Orders in your Dragonlance game. It details the history of each knighthood very well. The Prestige Classes are excellent, though I was hoping for an updated set of Knight of Neraka/Tahksis (Lily, Thorn & Skull) PrC's. All in all it is another excellent book from the people at Soverign Press/Margaret Weis Productions.
a good buy Oct 7, 2006
As a suplement to the Dragonlance Campaign Setting, this is a good book. It explains in-depth about knighthood in general and also specifically about the orders for which it's named. The most notable thing this book does is it fixes the Solamnic Knight prestige classes. As it is in the campaign setting, if you wanted to make a high-level sword or rose knight, you would be highly restricted and you'd have no room for feats you want to take outside of prerequisites and the same goes for skills depending on your character's INT score. The Legion of Steel is also fixed, from a simple 3-level prestige class to four 10-level classes--a marked improvement. The Knights of Neraka's three core classes; Lilly, Skull, and Thorn, aren't affected by this book, though a few new prestige classes are introduced to compliment the Dark Knights' armies. I give it 4 instead of 5 only because I think the prerequisites for the Solamnics are still too strict, however they are a lot better off than the ones outlined in the campaign setting. Overall, the book has a much better layout than the campaign setting and Age of Mortals books; the margin is only 1" instead of the ungodly 1.5" margins in the other two, and they didn't leave half-pages of white space either. There's a good amount of artwork in the book which is worth admiring as well, especially a full-page print at the end. I won't spoil it for you, but anyone who's read the Chronicles will reccognize the scene. Reccomended buy.
