The Lexicon Portal

Welcome to the Dragonlance Lexicon! The mission of the Lexicon project is simple: to serve as the comprehensive encyclopedia of Dragonlance knowledge. Initial articles have been researched and written by a dedicated team of volunteers who have spent months combing through hundreds of published sources. The Dragonlance Lexicon project is overseen by Kranar Drogin and features articles written by many other contributors.


We are currently working on 9,040 articles.

Cover of the Dragons of Despair.

You stand on the road east of Solace, tired from five years of adventuring, from a fruitless search for lost clerical magic. You know the old proverb that claims "You must return to find what you left to seek," but the saying never really made sense. Soon, however, it will.

For the world of Krynn is not the same: refugees stream out of the northernmost Human lands, telling horrible tales. An invading army has burned their villages and put their families and friends to the sword. Among these stories you hear even darker rumors - that older evils, the Dragons themselves, have returned to the world, for new and more terrible purposes. (Read more...)

Selected article

The Age of Dreams is often considered the beginning of recorded history, and runs ca. 9000 PC - 960 PC. Three time periods collectively form the Age of Dreams: the Foundation (ca. 9000 PC - 5000 PC), the Time of Light (ca. 5000 PC - 2000 PC), sometimes referred to as the Age of Light, and the Time of Knights (ca. 2000 PC - 960 PC).

Selected biography

Raistlin Majere by Nick Barfuss.

Raistlin Majere (RAIST-lin mah-_jeer_ ) ( Corij 17th, 326 AC383 AC ) was arguably the most powerful mage who ever lived. He was also one of the famed Heroes of the Lance, and was directly responsible for the defeat of the Queen of Darkness and her dragonarmies during the War of the Lance, although his part in that was largely to further his own ends. After the war, Raistlin raised the curse of Rannoch on the Tower of High Sorcery at Palanthas, and put his plan to challenge Takhisis for her position in the pantheon of gods into action. Tormented by the Dark Queen in the Abyss for many years, Raistlin returned to Krynn shortly before the Second Cataclysm, departing with the gods when they struck their bargain with Chaos in 383 AC. Raistlin played a brief role in the return of the gods to Krynn during the War of Souls, but never returned to Krynn. (Read more...)

  • Dragonlance Canticle #42 – Romantic Fantasy in the Age of Mortals

Posted on 6/18/2011 by Zarvox
In this episode of the [Dragonlance Canticle], Tristan, Trampas, Chuck, and Cam talk about romantic fantasy, one of the genres of fantasy to which Dragonlance traditionally belongs. But are the stories being told in the Age of Mortals really romantic fantasy? This episode also contains the final part of our four-part Dark Sun interview with Chris Flipse of [Athas.org].

  • Krynn Wins

Posted on 6/15/2011 by Sallis
[This Just In...] Krynn Wins! Thanks to everyone who voted in the poll. This is a clear message to Wizards of the Coast that Dragonlance should be given more focus. Hopefully we will be seeing more DL from them in the future.
