Prelude Era

Stories set before or during the War of the Lance, which aim to flesh out the characters’ backstories and to explore events of the War not covered in Chronicles.

Prerequisite: Before exploring the stories of this era, the reader should definitely first read the Classic Core.

Core books of this era: Since this era is basically all backstory, none of its stories can really be considered Core, and they may be read in any order. However, this has long been one of the more popular eras for the publishers and authors to set stories. Most readers who first got into Dragonlance in the 80s and 90s read the Tales Trilogy and Stormblade. Readers who got into Dragonlance in the 2000s have almost certainly read The Soulforge and the Lost Chronicles.
