Wo Long Fallen Dynasty is set in China in 184 AD. The story follows a militia soldier who fights to survive in a dark fantasy version, the Later Han Dynasty. There are demons that plague the Three Kingdoms. Wo Long can be described as a crouching Dragon, but also as a hero or person who has greatness that is yet unknown. Wo Long's main focus is on the officers at this point who will become heroes.

Historically, the Three Kingdoms Era refers to the time period between the years 220-280 and the year 280 when China was divided into three kingdoms: Wu, Shu, and Wei before it was unified under Jin. This era can be extended to include the entire fall and aftermath of the Later Han Dynasty. Therefore, the Three Kingdoms Era now defines the time period covered by the Luo Guanzhong book rather than the historical era. In Wo Long, it seems, that this definition is being followed.
