Death Knights of Krynn is the 2nd volume of the Dragonlance epic and is the sequel to Champions of Krynn. Characters from that game may be imported to this game.

This time the party faces an undead threat that turns former friends into fierce enemies and infests Krynn with hordes of decaying monsters. The party must find the origin of these nightmarish undead creatures and eliminate it in order to save Krynn from turning into a land of undead.

Like Champions of Krynn, Death Knights of Krynn introduces a different and unique character selection with the availability of the "Knight" class, unavailable in AD&D non-Dragonlance RPGs. Characters in this game may level-up to higher levels and obtain new skills as well as more powerful spells. Experienced Knights may ultimately choose one out of 3 "clans" to focus more on a different type of fighting style.

Adventuring consists of either overland map travel or the standard 1st person town adventure. The player's party consists of 6 characters (of which one must be a Knight) as well as possible NPC characters joining your party. Wandering monsters will of course attack the party on occasion so gear up and prepare for undead monster-bashing combat!

The Good
The first thing that struck me was the MUSIC, it really carried you away to Krynn. The thick atmosphere and the very binding story made this game a great RPG.

The Bad
The graphics didn´t live up to the story, not that I minded.

The Bottom Line
This was the very first RPG I played on a computer (Amiga 500), and since I´ve always had a very prolific imagination I was lost from the very first minute. The story and the music carried me away to the lands of Krynn, a good place to be. It was a fantastic playing experience that I gladly remember until this day.

Cover art

The cover artwork for this game is based on a painting by Keith Parkinson entitled "Lord Soth's Charge", originally rendered for inclusion in the 1987 Dragonlance calendar. It was so successful not only did it find its way on to this game box but the painting was also made into a miniature set!
