The oldest big fandom brawl I can clearly remember in the internet age would have to be in the alt.fan.dragonlance USENET group, in 1992, after the release of the Tales of the Lance boxed set. I don’t think people quite understand how ferociously passionate people used to get about their favorite AD&D settings. 
Tumblr media
Some context: Dragonlance was unique in that it was an AD&D setting that never got an official boxed set where everything was all set down in a definitive fashion until a full decade after it started publication. Remember, the world was introduced through a series of adventure modules, followed by tie-in novels that were a hit. Tales of the Lance in 1992 was going to be the big setting box. There’s more, though. The Tales of the Lance boxed set was extra contentious because the original creators of Dragonlance (Hickman and Weis) were forced out because of all kinds of backstage machinations. In other worlds, there was an aura of cold, ruthless commerce and illegitimacy about it all, from an organization that already ousted Gary Gygax from his own company only a half decade before. TSR was also hyper invested into Buck Rogers XXVC, which nobody liked but which existed to be a borderline illegal money pipeline out of TSR (sufficed to say, we are leaving the world of fandom complaint, and entering the world of white collar crime). In other words, the fanbase had some trust issues with TSR. 
So, when Tales of the Lance came out in 1992, which not only set down in stone a world that already existed in everybody’s heads for a decade, but was also defined by a vision that wasn’t the original creators’, put out by a company the fandom didn’t trust...well, there were bound to be problems, and the reaction was disproportionate. Honestly, most of the critiques of Tales of the Lance sounded like the ultimate in nerd nitpicking, back when fandoms were way less concerned with ‘ships and way, way more right-brained (though even then, people loved to speculate if Tanis Half-Elf was gay or bisexual). An example of the kind of mistake they brought up was that the boxed set said all Silvanestri elves have hazel eyes, when probably the intent was that was just the line of Silvanost. Yeah, okay, that’s just the telephone game in operation, but...does it matter that much? But in 1992, AD&D fans were really willing to fight over very, very minor things like that, that’s how real all this was in people’s heads.

The special edition cover for Shadow of the Dragon Queen is awesome.

Can some people pls stop referring to non-humanoid sapient characters in fantasy as animals? 😑
I know that it isn't a big deal since we're talking about pure fiction without any relation to real world, but it's just... Weird? The characters can be written as people, framed as people, included in setting as people, but for some fans it still will be "animal" or "beast" or "another character's pet" or at best "almost like human". Dude, inside of the setting they aren't "almost like humans", they are equal to humans

Today much of the focus is on the new release of 5e Spelljammer books and miniatures, including smaller scale ships, as well as a multitude of projects set in the Forgotten Realms, but in the final minute of the D&D Direct event they teased the official return of Dragonlance with an adventure book and a “Battle Game” scheduled for late 2022, as foreshadowed by a few items in the most recent Unearthed Arcana playtest material
