Welcome to D&D Lore Wiki, the encyclopedia of Dungeons & Dragons history and canon!

This wiki is a reference guide to official Dungeons & Dragons content of every edition, from 1974 to 2020: every monster, NPC, organization, race, character class, magic item, spell, dungeon and place which has ever appeared in an official D&D sourcebook, along with their real-world creators.

This wiki is not a repository for homebrew material or third-party content. For copyright reasons, do not post game rules or verbatim text copied from rulebooks.

Did you know?Edit

  • Over sixty Norse gods are named in D&D canon, including Loki's wife Sigyn and Thor's sons Modi and Magni.
  • At least fifty deadly swords of sharpness appear in official Dungeons & Dragons products. Most are longswords, but some are greatswords, shortswords, knives, and even axes.
  • Mind flayers reproduce in a process called ceremorphosis, where an illithid tadpole enters the ear of a humanoid victim, consumes their brain and takes over their body.
