The Dragonlance Nexus accepts submissions of articles to the Dragonlance Lexicon project, a Dragonlance encyclopedia.

All submissions must be researched from previous Dragonlance products, and must adhere to the Wizards of the Coast Standards of Content.

Submissions must be in one of the following formats: email, plain text, rich text, or Microsoft Word. Further instructions on how to get your submission to us will be provided on the following pages.

Specific requirements and notes outlined below:

Research & Citations

Reference articles submitted on material that has been previously found in printed Dragonlance publications must include a bibliographic citation for each publication referenced when writing the article. Specific page numbers are required for all sources. Articles that do not contain appropriate citations will be rejected.

Point of View

Articles should be written in 'encyclopedia style,' in the third person using the past tense.

Article Format

Articles should follow the general outline of existing articles within the Lexicon area (i.e. biographies should include an 'early life' and similar sections as appropriate.)

Article Length

As some topics have much more information about them than others do, there is no specific minimum word count. However, topics that contain a lot of references or information should be longer than those with few references; still, the suggested minimum word count for any article is 250 words. (Approximately 1/2 a single-spaced, typed page.) There is no maximum length, though we suggest articles are no longer than 4,000 words. Articles that do not meet the minimum requirement will not be published.

Article Ownership

All articles submitted to the Lexicon project become the property of the Nexus. Authors are invited to submit changes, as necessary, to articles they have written, but assign all other rights to Lexicon articles to the Dragonlance Nexus. Those that create an article or do major editing will receive credit for their work.
