Item Details

This listing is for a vintage copy of Dragon Magazine #185 published in September 1992 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!


This 124-page issue includes the following content:



9 Lore of the Blasted World:
The DARK SUN™ Campaign
Where only the strong survive—--sometimes.
10 The Arena Master's Arsenal — Timothy B. Brown
