Dragaera is a fictional world, the setting of a number of books by Steven Karl Zoltán Brust. It is inhabited by two major intelligent species, generally known as Dragaerans and Easterners, as well as several other races such as the Serioli, cat-centaurs, and the gods. For a quick overview of Dragaera and its inhabitants, check out the Dramatis Personae and Dramatis Loci pages.
Tips & Tricks
In general, please keep speculative information and theories separate from "hard" information from the books. Also, try to keep real-world facts separated into the appropriate Meta pages.
You can use the page tools on the sidebar of each page in the wiki to quickly move between the Main article, Meta information, and Speculation pages on each topic.

A note for Vlad fans
It should be noted that many of the pages in this site contain spoilers and/or potential spoilers for new Vlad Taltos novels. Spoiler warnings will be present in some places for the newer novels, but due to the nature of a wiki, it is difficult to protect all the various articles that may be updated with new (potentially spoiler-laden) information. It is assumed that readers of this site will be familiar with the basics of the world of Dragaera, and the events of those novels published more than 4 years prior. If not spoiling the books is important to you, be cautious when exploring this site.
