The Dragonlance games can be divided in three sets:

  1. The Silver Box trilogy is an adaptation of the events in the first four Dragonlance role-playing modules, at the beginning of the War of the Lance. They are not role-playing games, though (they are two action-platformers and one strategy game).
  2. War of the Lance and the two DragonStrike are set during the second part of the war, and they all end with the conclusion of the conflict, but their plot is independent from the novels.
  3. The Gold Box trilogy is set after said war and novels, but it still features many of the characters.
