Description Edit | History

Vol. XII No. 5 of Dragon Magazine.

Cover Art: Daniel Horne said the scene on his cover painting "takes place on a frozen tundra. The sun is setting, the hoar frost is glittering like thousands of pieces of broken glass." A ranger in the service of the High King has just been attacked by the undead remains of one of her old opponents - a frost giant who has waited a long time for this moment of revenge. Having lost her sword and used up her normal arrows, the ranger has a single elven arrow left - from which comes the painting's name: "Saving the Best for Last." (from the contents page)

This issue featured The Dead of Night - Not even the grave can keep some people down: 3 articles on the undead, and The Wormy Puzzle by Tramp - Our favorite dragon celebrates his 101st "Wormy" issue!
It also listed the "Gamers' Guide," which was an index of all the advertising in the issue and "TSR Previews," a list of upcoming products from TSR.
