For those who don't know, the original Dragonlance books by Weis and Hickman were developed straight from D&D sessions. Several people at TSR, now Wizards of the Coast, created characters and had at it. Dragonlance was basically like taking the AQ Inc. podcasts/videos and turning them into a fantasy novel.
So there's a bit of poetic irony in Gabe reversing the process. Also, possibly a dig at him being stupid. Since you don't have to just read from the books, all that stuff exists in D&D campaign form.
The first Dragonlance novel Dragons of Autumn Twilight was written after modules DL1-4 were completed. However, as Hickman and Weis felt this was too constraining and made the novel feel too episodic, they reversed the process for Dragons of Winter Night and Dragons of Spring Dawning and completed the books before the related modules.
