What is Taladas?

Taladas is a Dragonlance Saga campaign setting that originally appeared in the Time of the Dragon boxed set by David "Zeb" Cook, published in 1989 by TSR Inc. This has long been out of print—however, Wizards of the Coast have released the schedule of electronic releases of out-of-print Dragonlance products, allowing you to download the sourcebook for a small fee. Otherwise, try eBay!

What has been officially published about Taladas?

The published source material for Taladas includes:

1050 Time of the Dragon boxed set

Are there any novels or short stories set in Taladas?

Unfortunately, no. At most there are casual references to Taladas, such as that from Dragons of Summer Flame quoted on the front page of this site.

Are there any comics set in Taladas?

Yes—although they are long out of print. You can read a synopsis of these comics in the Fiction section of this website.

Did the dragon overlords originally live in Taladas?

No; the dragon overlords of the Fifth Age (such as Malystryx and Beryllinthranox) came from an unknwon land. Although the dragons of Taladas are different from those who fought in the War of the Lance, there are no great dragons like Malys native to this continent. The land of Malys' origin lies elsewhere in Krynn.

Is the homeland of the Brutes located in Taladas?

No. The land of the Brutes (described in The History of the Dragonlance Saga) is an island much smaller than Taladas, and probably lies in the southern hemisphere of Krynn, a few months' sail from Ansalon.

Can I contribute to this website in some way?

Certainly! Original creations by Dragonlance fans are always welcome, especially those that develop Taladas in some way. Submissions based on the "Classic" Fourth Age or the new Fifth Age are equally welcome.

If you don't have the time or energy to develop a stand-alone creation, you might instead like to contribute to one of the works-in-progress mentioned elsewhere on this website. Send me an email and I'll give you some details about what still needs doing.

Check out the Submissions information on the Site Info page for details on how to contribute to this website!
