1. I know this sounds very out of the blue but I do wonder if Raistlin is autistic because I'm autistic and his behavior greatly reminds me of autism.  It could be coincidence but I am curious if he is or not.

I THINK THAT IS AN INTERESTING THEORY. I'M NOT SURE. RAISTLIN IS JUST WHO HE IS!

2. OMG... I don't know what I'd ask. I guess I would just tell her that I LOVE her books and that they are a great source of inspiration for me. Not to mention that these books got me together with my husband, lol.

I would like to know from where she draws inspiration, and what she does to avoid art-block (or writer's block). And also, about Tass!  he's my favorite character from the books so I'd love to hear how she feels about Tass.

I LOVE TAS! SO MUCH FUN TO WRITE. ROGER E. MOORE WROTE THE FIRST SHORT STORY ABOUT TAS CALLED 'A STONE'S THROW' AND I FOLLOWED HIS LEAD. INSPIRATION COMES FROM ALL SORTS OF PLACES INCLUDING LIFE!

3.Did Raistlin ever truly love Crysania? Do you consider the legend of Raistlin's daughter to be canon, or just a myth? By the end of the series, is Raistlin still himself, or some new creature that is a merge of Raistlin and Fistandantilus?

I THINK HE WANTED TO LOVE CRYSANIA. I HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT HIS DAUGHTER.:) I THINK RAISTLIN IS HIMSELF, THOUGH I'M NOT SURE HE KNOWS WHAT IS.

4.I'm a fan from a small city in Spain, and it's really a privilege for me to get this chance. Thank you in advance for answering  our questions, Margaret Weis! And thank you very much for co-writing Dragonlance!

So... What does it takes to make a Kender lose his desire to live, to turn them into Afflicted Kenders, and what makes this Afflicted Kenders different from the rest of the habitants of Krynn? Was Marigold Featherwinkle a “precursor” of the afflicted kenders we would later see in the Dragonlance universe?

Also, do you believe in magic?

THE AFFLICTED KENDERS WERE A CREATION OF THE FIFTH AGE TEAM. I WASN'T REALLY A FAN OF THEM. I TRIED TO DO WHAT I COULD WITH MARIGOLD TO WORK WITH THEM. THANKS! I BELIEVE IN THE MAGIC OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT.

5.if there ever was a chance to get Dragonlance on to film with a full fleshed out cast, effects, and etc...would you prefer it as a movie/movie series like LotR/Hobbit or as a tv series like Game of Thrones (quality wise). if so what would be your dream cast for the main characters? 

I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT TODAY'S ACTORS, SO I COULDN'T SAY! I ALWAYS WANTED A DRAGONLANCE MUSICAL.:)

6.About time/war of the twins: If the effect one human can have on the course of time is no more than the effect of a thrown pebble on a vast river (without a kender) and if Raistlin heard all the things he was about to say before he said them etc etc... Does that mean that Denubis almost seduced Fistandantilus the first time around? & how did Gnimsh escape the abyss without the artifact? How did he get get trapped by the mountain dwarves? Was the Dark Queen aware of what Fistandantilus planned?

LOL! MY GOODNESS, SO COMPLICATED. I HAVE NO CLUE. SORRY! I WAS JUST TELLING A STORY.:)

Anyway, I love the Legends series Margaret, thank you for making them.

7.I'm your fan from russia. I want to know: do you ship Raistlin×Crysania? And one more thing: in "DragonLance Chronicles" was said that Raistlin's eyes color was cyan (Or blue? I don't know, I've read your books in russian.), but in "Legends" it was hazel (Or brown?). Caramon's eyes was hazel in both trilogys. Where's truth?

PROBABLY HAZEL. THANKS!

8.I can't help but wonder if there was a specific medical reason for Raistlin's health problems before the test. At least part of it sounds like it could be asthma. 

COULD HAVE BEEN. NOT REALLY SURE. I WAS TELLING A STORY!

If Raistlin was sleeping during the years between Legends and the Summer of Chaos, why was he running around loose and awake in the abyss when Palin went looking for him? And how did Palin acquire the staff of Magius during his test if he didn't actually meet Raistlin or enter the laboratory at all?

AH, THAT'S A MYSTERY.:)

Also, why was the Kingpriest able to use his powers right up until the fall of Istar, when he had been involved in attempting to destroy the typically evil-aligned races (ie. genocide) for some time? That seems more evil to me than the typical black robe. Yes, he has free will, but so does Paladine.

AND THAT'S ANOTHER MYSTERY.:)

9.Hello! I am a huge fan of yours from Canada. My best friend introduced me to your books and I have grown up loving them. My favourite characters are Raistlin and Tasslehoff (a weird combination, I know). I have two questions...

First, did you ever anticipate how ridiculously popular Raistlin would become (it seems he is everyone's favourite character) and why do you think he is so popular?

AS SOMEONE SAYS, THERE'S A LITTLE RAISTLIN IN ALL OF US. WE CAN EMPATHIZE WITH HIM.

And secondly, I feel that Tasslehoff's character is more important than people realize. I think that amongst all of the angst and heartache of the other characters he is almost a voice of reason. Why do you think Tas is important?

KENDER ARE THE WISEST PEOPLE ON KRYNN.

10.Okay! My question is a little strange...When we learned about the features of Pangea in oceanography, a few words popped up that distracted me:
1. Laurentia: North America as it was in the Late Jurassic period.
2. Gondwana: a major landmass in the Early Triassic and Late Jurassic.
3. Palanthalassa: the ocean surrounding Pangea

Between these, you get two names for my favorite Golden General: 1.Laur+2. ana and 1. Laur +3. alanthalassa

(and then there's Palanthas, but let's not get off topic)

Is the connection I saw a coincidence...merely the result of a daydream? 

THAT IS INTERESTING, BUT LAURANA WAS NAMED FOR TRACY HICKMAN'S WIFE, LAURA!
Hello folks! Trough the dragonlance musical project I got the chance to chat with the co-author of dragon-lance, Margaret Weiss and I asked if she would be kind enough to answer this group members questions. And she said... YES

So think, take the opportunity and ask questions people!!! :D
DRAGONLANCE MUSICAL: KrynnSub needs volunteers

“A Russian group of singers gathered to make a musical about the Twins Chronicles: The project called Последнее испытание (The Last Trial) emphasized on our beloved character Raistlin.”--Coconut-CocaCola


Our group on deviantArt “Krynn-Dragonlance” embarked on a quest to make English subtitles of The Last Trial. Coconut-CocaCola organized and promoted the Facebook group “Krunnsub” and together the team accomplished their goal.

I am currently leading KrynnSub toward its next goal: To rewrite the songs from the Last Trial Fantasy Musical so that they may be sung in English. Since October 2014, the KrynnSub team has worked together to rewrite more than 15 of the songs.

Do you see where I'm going with this?

We need more English speakers to help us rewrite/edit the music and sing them as demos during the editing process. We need more creative minds, more poets, more singers, and more fans of The Last Trial to ensure this project's success!

Do you have an ear for rhyme and meter? Do you want to sing one of the songs we’ve rewritten? Do you want to edit others' work so that we can have the best possible results? Of course you do.

If you are interested in joining the team, please leave a comment or simply follow the link below to join our Facebook Group: KrynnSub.

Here are some links to the music itself:
Although a full version of the musical is still unavailable for viewing online, there are many ways to appreciate the performance.

1. The free songs: fantasymusical.ru/index.php?o.…
2. A promotional concert featuring many of the songs: www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1nnNX…

In the off chance that this group is still alive and just quiet, I have a message to put out:

If anyone is a wiki member of the Dragonlance Lexicon or other wikis for the series, shoot me back a response. I can link you to some sites that have Mina's Sleep Song, Goldmoon's Song, The Song of Lorac, and a few others to put into the wikis and fill some gaps.
