Wizards’ Conclave

Wizard’s Conclave

“Wizards’ Conclave” is a novel written by Douglas Niles and published in 2004 as part of the “Age of Mortals” series in the Dragonlance setting. It is the eighth book in the “The War of Souls” sub-series. Here is a brief summary of the story:

The novel focuses on a gathering of the most powerful wizards of Krynn, who come together to address the growing threat of the evil goddess Takhisis and her minions. Takhisis has returned to the world, stealing the souls of the dead and wreaking havoc across the lands.

The Wizards’ Conclave, held in the Tower of Wayreth, is a meeting of the Orders of High Sorcery, which are divided into three groups based on the alignment of their magic: White Robes (good), Red Robes (neutral), and Black Robes (evil). This meeting marks a rare event, as the wizards typically do not cooperate due to their differing philosophies and goals.

During the Conclave, tensions run high as the wizards debate the best course of action to combat Takhisis and her forces. Meanwhile, outside forces threaten to undermine the conclave, as agents of Takhisis infiltrate the gathering in an attempt to sabotage any plans the wizards may devise.

Throughout the novel, the wizards grapple with the complexities of their situation, trying to put aside their differences and unite against a common enemy. They must navigate political intrigue, personal ambitions, and the ever-present threat of Takhisis to find a solution to the crisis facing the world of Krynn.

“Wizards’ Conclave” delves into the complexities of magic, power, and the challenges faced by the wizards of Krynn. Douglas Niles explores themes of unity, compromise, and the struggle between good and evil, set against the backdrop of the rich and diverse world of Dragonlance.
