After the founding of Margaret Weis Productions[edit]

In 2004, after Margaret Weis and Don Perrin divorced, Margaret Weis founded Margaret Weis Productions[5] which used the Sovereign Stone system as the basis for the Cortex System and the Serenity RPG. The Sovereign Stone website was deleted at the end of July 2004.[6] In early 2008 the rights to Dragonlance reverted to Wizards of the Coast[7] with the final book in the line, Dragons of Spring, being produced in January 2008.[8] The Sovereign Press website closed down at the end of 2008[9] with dragonlance.com not being updated after June 2009 and being taken down in early 2011[10]
