Forgotten Realms Chronological Reading Order

What’s in the Forgotten Realms Chronological Reading Order?

This is the chronological reading order for the Forgotten Realms series of books and short stories. Forgotten Realms is a huge story setting. The original authors developed it for Dungeons and Dragons. Many authors contributed to this world, although Ed Greenwood and R. A. Salvatore still wrote much of it. While overlap exists between some stories, we usually place them in order based on where they end.

Now the number of books and short stories for Forgotten Realms is so massive that it’s easy to make a mistake when ordering them, so if you see anything that should be placed in another area of the timeline, please let us know. We want to create an easy-to-follow timeline for all of the Forgotten Realms media, so we welcome any help to avoid confusion. So enjoy the Forgotten Realms chronological reading order. And if you’re a fan of other tabletop literature, check out our Dragonlance reading order. Fans of the Forgotten Realms character, Drizzt Do’urden will also enjoy our Legends of Drizzt timeline.

As always, if you have questions or comments about this timeline, we recommend you visit our contact page.
