Dragonlances are a magical weapon powerful enough to kill a dragon. The lance originated in the Third Dragon War, during the Age of Light, with the intent to overcome the evil dragons. There are two types of Dragonlances, Greater Dragonlances and Dragonlances. Greater Dragonlances are created with the use of the Hammer of Kharas and the Silver Arm of Ergoth, both magical artifacts. When both artifacts are used the Dragonlance is infused with the power of good and therefore a Greater Dragonlance. When only one of the two artifacts is used it is not infused with the power of good and therefore a Lesser Dragonlance. When Takhisis and her evil dragons departed the world of Krynn, after the Third Dragon War, both Greater and Lesser Dragonlances disappeared, ending the Age of Light.
