Dragonlance WotC Officially Confirms Takhisis and Tiamat Are The Same

It's been an issue in dispute for decades, over various editions of D&D, but WotC has officially confirmed that - at least in 5E - Dragonlance's Takhisis is, indeed, currently Tiamat. In previous editions, Tiamat has varied from being a big dragon to a minor goddess, while Takhisis has been a greater god on Krynn. At times they've been the same entity, and at others different entities. Today...

It's been an issue in dispute for decades, over various editions of D&D, but WotC has officially confirmed that - at least in 5E - Dragonlance's Takhisis is, indeed, currently Tiamat. In previous editions, Tiamat has varied from being a big dragon to a minor goddess, while Takhisis has been a greater god on Krynn. At times they've been the same entity, and at others different entities. Today, WotC is putting its foot down and saying that Takhisis and Tiamat are, indeed, the same being.



Of course, this is not an opinion universally held. Dragonlance co-creator Margaret Weis emphatically stated that "TAKHISIS IS NOT TIAMAT, DAMN IT!"

Fizban's Treasuryof Dragons confirms that the beings echo across various settings.

Of course, if they are the same, then Tiamat is already dead. She died 20 years ago. Tiamat is dead...long live...someone else...maybe Mina??

That's one thing I'm not sure how they get around or explain (they don't in the new DL novel, I wonder if Weiss and Hickman will find a way around it later).
Mina became a neutral goddess, maintaining the balance. Goddess of tears or something.

Takhisis is dead, it doesn't really need more explaination because apparently what happens to a god in one crystal sphere doesn't affect them in other spheres, or the planes...
