Record of Lodoss War Novel Series
Ryo Mizuno, so far, has written four series of novels for Lodoss which the anime and manga have been based on. However, none of these have been published in English yet. We know of no sites that offer translations of the novels. I can provide little information for synopsis for all the novels. If you come across any English translations, please send us a link! We will eagerly welcome anyone fluent in Japanese who has the novels, and is willing to post translations.
Cover art for many of these novels was originally done by Yutaka Izabuchi, though Masato Natsumoto and a few other artists have also made contributions for cover art. Izabuchi has also produced artbooks filled with art inspired by Lodoss.
Record of Lodoss War
This series covers thirty years of Lodoss history, following mainly Parn and Deedlit beginning from the War of Heroes until the War of the Destroyer's Resurrection. It covers seven novels, plus two extra side-stories. This series was the basis for the Grey Witch and Chronicles of the Heroic Knight mangas, and the Record of Lodoss War and Chronicles of the Heroic Knight anime.
Legend of Lodoss
This series goes back to the time of the War of the Demon God and follows the original six heroes, Beld, Fahn, Wort, Neese, Fleve and the Nameless Sorceress. The series is five novels long with two extras. This series was the base for the Lady of Pharis Manga.
The New Record of Lodoss War
A new series, released in 1999 to 2001 that follows Spark as the Duke of the New Marmo republic. The series is four books long, though more may be released.
Legend of Crystania
This series takes place 300 years after Ashram led his people from Marmo to the land of Crystania. The series is supposedly four books long and the base for the Legend of Crystania manga and anime. I have no cover images available for this series.
