Lands of Lore or LoL is a computer role-playing game series by Westwood Studios and published by Virgin Interactive. Lands of Lore follows the tradition of Dungeon Master, but introduced a linear scenario-based storyline, rather than characters and feats.

Westwood Studios made role playing games (RPGs) for years, most famously Eye of the Beholder 1 and 2. Westwood and SSI had artistic differences over a third Eye of the Beholder game, however, so Westwood chose to make their own RPG without the restrictions from the D&D rule set. Their efforts yielded Lands of Lore. Originally planned as a series of eight titles, the series ultimately spawned three.

  • Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos (1993)
  • Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny (1997)
  • Lands of Lore III (1999)
The storyline of the games takes place in a fantasy realm known and referred to simply as "The Lands". The main realm of the Lands is Gladstone, where the civilized and "good" races are based.
