Known Errors[]

  • The spelling of the planet 'Sirrion', and the god it was named after, was incorrect during 2nd Edition AD&D and was corrected in the 3rd Edition D&D Dragonlance Campaign Setting hardback.[2]
  • The spelling of the city 'Palanthas' was incorrect during 2nd Edition AD&D and was corrected in the 3rd Edition D&D Dragonlance Campaign Setting hardback.[3]
  • The description of Krynn's moons conflicts with the description of the moons in most Dragonlance products and novels. The equi-distant arrangement suggested here[4][5][6] would make conjunctions of two moons and the Night of the Eye (a conjunction of all three moons) impossible.[7][8]
  • The spelling of the god 'Zeboim' is incorrect in the chapter, The Gods of Krynnspace, but is correct when used as the name of a moon in the Zivilyn chapter.[9]

Disputed Information[]

  • The Spelljamming Port at Palanthas is not supported by any Dragonlance product and is seen as a continuity error by many Spelljammer and Dragonlance fans.
