Remember when Raistlin got stuck insdie a tree in Summer Flame and then he couldn’t get out of the tree, the most powerful wizard of all time, the one that Lord Soth was like, “bro, mad skills, better than mine,” the one who almost became a god, the youngest wizard to ever take his test, INSIDE A TREE AND UNABLE TO REMOVE HIMSELF.

“What will you do to me?” Raistlin asked hoarsely. The note ofdesperation in his voice was not entirely forced. He must know how the pendant worked. “How can that matter?” Fistandantilus questioned coolly, laying his hand upon the young mage’s chest. “My … object in coming to you was to learn,” Raistlin said, gritting his teeth and trying not to writhe at the loathsome touch. “I would learn, even to the last!“ -War of the Twins, p. 22

im just saying, like, burning your fingerprints over someone’s heart so that they’ll forever bleed is kind of an intimate vengeance

Reblogging this because this post is laid out perfectly and I honestly believe this is the best order for anyone looking to get into the series. 
Where do you start with reading dragonlance?
I would highly reccomend starting with the original trilogy also known as the dragonlance chronicles which consists of Dragons of Autumn Twilight, Dragons of Winter Night, and finally Dragons of Spring Dawning.
Tumblr media
After that I would reccomend reading the second trilogy also known as Dragonlance Legends which consists of Time of the Twins, War of the Twins, and Test of the Twins. This is the story arc that the russian musical the last trial is based off of
Tumblr media
Those are the main core books that everyone agrees upon
After that i would reccomend doing what I did and read the Lost Chronicles trilogy if you can find it it fills in a lot of the gaps of the original chronicles. It consists of Dragons of the Dwarven Depths, Dragons of the Highlord of the Skies, and Dragons of the Hourglass Mage
Tumblr media
Or if you're more interested continuing with the main story rather than gaps I would reccomend reading the next generation books which are the end of the classic dragonlance era and it consists of the novels The Second Generation, and Dragons of Summer Flame
Tumblr media
After that the possibilities on what to read opens up even further either by going into the prequel novels or forward into the age of mortals.
I've personally only been reading dragonlance for about a month so I can definitely understand looking how daunting it can be to get into something that's so long running, but hopefully this helps get you started. Just remember there isnt really a right or wrong way to read the books. If you only want to read the 6 core books that's valid. If you only want to read about Raistlin that's valid. If you want to know everything about all of the lore and go way out of your way to read like 200 books that's vaild. If you were into ravenloft and just want more context for what Lord Soth's deal is also perfectly valid. So on and So Forth. I hope you enjoy :)

“Gilthas entered the chamber. Tanis forgot their danger, forgot everything in his concern, his astonishment, and- it must be admitted- his pride. The little boy who had run away from home was gone. In his place walked a young man, with grave and solemn countenance, a young man who stood upright, tall and dignified in the yellow, shimmering robes of the Speaker.”

“Her gaze was that of a man, bold and straightforward, not the simpering, blushing modesty of a well-bred woman. Her movements were graceful- the grace of a trained swordsman- and she had the confidence and coolness of a blooded warrior. If she was a bit cocky, that only enhanced her exotic appeal.”

““Wait a minute” he said. “Let me finish. I love you, Tika, as truly as any man loves any woman in this world. I want to make love to you. If we weren’t involved in this stupid war, I’d make you mine today. This minute. But I can’t. Because if I did it would be a commitment to you that I would dedicate my life to keeping. You must come first in all my thoughts. You deserve no less than that. But I can’t make that commitment, Tika. My first commitment is to my brother.” Tika’s tears flowed again- this time not for herself- but for him.”

““Women like their men to be handsome. I have a face that only a mother could love.” William’s hand moved across his porcine features. “Folks say a pig overturned my crib when I was a baby. My face was supposed to have been marked by the experience.””

““You know Lord Kitiara I believe, Half-Elven?” Dalamar interrupted. Tanis choked, coughed and muttered something. “I beg your pardon?” “Yes, damn it, I know her!” Tanis snapped, caught Elistan’s glance, and sank back into his chair once again, feeling his skin burn.”

““I cannot best him in a fight,” Kitiara muttered, walking ten paces one direction, turning and walking ten paces back. “His magic is too powerful. He’s proven that. But even the most powerful mage has a weak spot- right between the shoulder blades.””
