THE UNSUNG HEROES OF ANSALON.
No on knows their names. There are no
Sturm Brightblades or Half-Elvens among them. Yet for as long as Good
has struggled against Evil, they have fought alongside the heroes
famed of song and story.
They are the rogues, spies, diplomats, and scouts of Ansalon, the
heroes whose coming goes unheralded and whose passing goes unnoticed.
Although the generations will never rally around their legends, these
secret freedom fighters remain vital to the struggle. All too often,
heroes whose names we know would have failed without the efforts of
men and women whose names are lost.
Heroes of Defiance offers background on these heroes and
guidelines for playing them in the DRAGONLANCE: FIFTH AGE setting. The
handbook in this box, titled Cloak and Dagger, includes:
Roles for playing bards, guild thieves, kender handlers, rebel elves,
Guidelines for creating adventures full of intrigue and mystery, as
well as an introduction to some of the kingpins of "underground"
Optional rules for playing gully dwarf heroes and for creating the
mysterious personalities and hidden agendas that rogue heroes thrive

of such roguish traditions as bard colleges and thief guilds. Now
emerging as the hub of civilization in the Age of Mortals, this unique
island is also beautifully presented on a full-color illustrated
This boxed set also features Storm Over Krynn, a quest to

second FIFTH AGE novel, The Day of the Tempest by Jean Rabe.
