Item Details

This listing is for a vintage copy of Dragon Magazine #80 published in December  1983 by TSR.

Dragon Magazine was the premier magazine for role-playing games. It ceased print publication in 2007 but lives on in a digital format. I always looked forward to getting Dragon Magazine in the mail or at my local hobby shop. It was always packed full of fun stuff to expand your Dungeons and Dragons game. Sometimes it even had information on other TSR games and occasional articles on other companies' games. It also had short stories, comics, and reviews.

In the early days, some of the luminaries of the game, like Gary Gygax, would contribute an article or two. A good time was always had by all!

Barnacus: City in peril. . .35

This vintage magazine is in Poor to Good condition. The cover has come loose from the staples but is included. The corners and edges are worn with a few tears. The inside shows moderate to heavy wear at the corners and edges. 

Please note, I have only graded the magazine for any major flaws. If you are concerned about the specific condition or want to make sure it has a specific article or module, please contact me and I will go over the magazine with a fine-tooth comb!

Please Note:

Please look at the pictures and contact me if you have any questions.

Most of my packing supplies are reused, so don't be too surprised if you have a combination of paper, airbags, and whatever else I have laying around.

I would be happy to wrap your gift purchase at no charge and write a personal note on the packing slip. Just add a note to the shopping cart at check-out.
