I’ve noticed that one of the most frequent questions, at least in the circles of DA fans that I visit regularly, is either about which order to read the novels in or asking what exactly is out there in terms of Dragon Age media. I put this list together recently, and since no one has corrected me yet, I think it’s current and correct. I go hunting for this at least once a day, and since Facebook groups don’t as yet seem to search the comments, I figured it was easiest to drop a copy here, where I can find the damn thing!
So here’s my “I Think it’s Right” chronological list of Dragon Age media. I consider the tabletop RPG, The Art of Dragon Age: Inquisition and The World of Thedas vols. I & II to be standalone, so haven’t included them here. Same goes for the Prima game guides (DA:O; DAII; DA:I).
Edit: 28th July 2017
I’ve had a few messages to say that the list format was difficult to read, so I’ve amended it into a table, added the dates from my research and rearranged a couple of items to fit better. I’ve also included my notes to indicate how I’ve dated some of them.
As always, if there are any errors or if anything is missing, please feel free to leave a message below and I’ll credit your addition.

Please note: I’ve noticed a few pages cropping up that have virtually copy-pasted my entire post, including slight rewordings of my introductory paragraph. I don’t mind people sharing the list – the whole reason for writing it was so that people could have access to anything they haven’t yet seen – but I’ve put a lot of effort into tracking some of these things down, figuring out where some of the more obscure things fit into the timeline (to the best of my knowledge) and maintaining the list. I would really appreciate if re-posters would either give me credit for my effort or link back to this page. Thank you!
