I remember reading a TSR choose your own adventure book many years ago that had Rainbow dragons in it.

Drakron - you remind me of the Oscar Wilde quote, "He knows the price of everything and the value of nothing".

Krynn is just a way to milk extra $ from the unwary. Tiamat existed before Krynn.

I have to defend Drakron here. It is Takhisis, not Tiamat, but that was a nasty thing to say to Drakron, Ivanhoe. You don't shoot somebody's hobbies down. You just don't. And I'm sure many would disagree with you Ivanhoe, me included.

I Know what I Said before but I decide to make a little recherch myself.
Tiamat is a Goodess in feûrun as well and like I stated before she posses a avatar form that looks like a dragon.I am wrong. She posses TWO forms. one that look like a choromatic dracon with Heads of every Choromatic dragon types, the other is similar but look likes a dagolich from of the first.

Well, from my knowledge of Dragonlance, Takhisis (I'm sure it's not Tiamat, Drakron) has three avatar forms. One is that chromatic dragon thing that Drakron mentioned, one is the dark warrior-her in human form with black armor on, and the other one is the seductress-you can guess that. I'm sure Tiamat exists in Faerun Drakron, but not in Dragonlance, at least at the time of the Chronicles Saga. And she doesn't have a lich form.

I best reply, You are Right about many things:
1)Not sure about the name in the Dragon lance but I will found the book to make sure.
2)The avatars forms are Right, I did not put the Human form because it was not relavant
3)One of her names is the queen of Darkness and she come to toril recent.
4)The dracolich avatar is a result of the Time of trobles were she was killed(aperent not) its know as the undying queen.
Ron read the 3 "Dragons at..." Books Clerical powers have fail but there are still gods(besides the one here the good paladin is there as well)
AND I HATE THOSE BOOKS.

Didn't mean to cause offense (well maybe a little...). Just pointing out that Tiamat originally came from Babylonian Mythology and also that she was around in version one of the rules (when the numbers of dragons were much less) - so she pre-dates Krynn. Just like me.
