Various   The base or backbone for the PE is formed by notes that were taken from several of the Dragonrider books (some of those notes date back more than ten years) and information taken from the various Dragondexes and similar lists in the various books.

Red Star Rising (Dragonseye) Notes were taken from the UK Corgi mmp edition; 1st printing, 1997. Note-taking on Red Star Rising (with the help of Sariel) took place from February to April 1999. After which 95% of the notes were added to the PE. Some subjects need more study before they are added.

The P.E.R.N. Survey, in: The Chronicles of Pern : First Fall Notes were taken from the US Del Rey mmp edition and cross referenced with the Corgi mmp edition; 1st printing, 1994.
